Kermit the Frog's new girlfriend is younger, thinner – and blander

1 September 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

How could the veteran Muppet trade in someone as fabulous as Miss Piggy for boring new model Denise? In 2015, that’s a move worthy of Ben Affleck

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: after the release of pictures of Kermit the Frog’s new girlfriend, Denise, it’s clear who was the real pig on the Muppets.

Miss Piggy was always the more charismatic performer, the more powerful presence in that relationship: she was Angelina to Kermit’s Billy Bob, the Cher to his Sonny, the Liz to his Larry (Fortensky). And yet he always got the top billing, the most screen time and the most credit for his intelligence. It’s now clear that he was also always colluding with the producers and directors to make sure that Miss Piggy looked like a violent, egotistical harridan and he was seen as the sensitive, Rainbow-Connection-bleating ex-hippie who gracefully put »

'Wonder Woman' Shooting in Italy with 'Interstellar' Cinematographer?

1 September 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, we reported that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Wonder Woman begins production this fall, but we were never given any specifics about where shooting may take place. During last week's episode of Meet the Movie Press, it was revealed that the superhero adventure has landed a cinematographer, with Interstellar's Hoyte Van Hoytema signing on, while Yahoo! Italy reports that Wonder Woman will be partially shot in Basilicata, Italy. These reports haven't been confirmed at this time, but if shooting is scheduled to commence sometime this fall, we should get confirmation soon.

Hoyte Van Hoytema first made his mark with director Tomas Alfredson's 2008 thriller Let the Right One in, which lead to more high-profile work in The Fighter, Tomas Alfredson's English language debut Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Her and Interstellar. He also served as the Dp on the upcoming James Bond action-thriller Spectre, arriving in theaters »

Michael Shannon backtracks on Zod’s “flipper” hands for Batman v Superman, namedrops Doomsday

1 September 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago Michael Shannon offered up a few intriguing words on his role in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, suggesting that he had “flippers” for hands. Naturally this sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, and Shannon has now played down his comments in an interview with The Daily Beast, and in doing so he may have just inadvertently confirmed the inclusion of Doomsday in the DC superhero ensemble.

“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” states Shannon. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”

“I wasn’t there [on set],” he continues. “It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer »

It Appears That Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice Will Have A Private Party Scene

29 August 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There were thousands of extras on the set of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! As you would expect, one of the extras spilled the beans regarding a private party scene that will take place in the film. According to the extra from the Michigan Film Office, that scene took three days to film, and over 1000 people!  "I worked 15 hours a day, but I was so thrilled to be on the set, and surrounded by so many talented people, that the long hours did not affect me. Not only did I get to stand by Henry Cavill while he played Superman’s alter ego Clark Kent, I quite literally ran into Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne. As we were resetting a shot, I was walking back to my mark. Affleck came rushing round the corner. I had nowhere to go because there were lights in the way. »

Chris Messina In Talks To Star Opposite Ben Affleck In Live By Night

28 August 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last we reported on Ben Affleck’s adaptation of Live By Night, it had slipped down the actor-director’s pecking order as he focused attention on donning the cape and cowl for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But with a November start date fast-approaching, Affleck is ready to assemble his cast and crew for the crime drama, itself an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s (Shutter Island) eponymous novel.

The latest star to enter talks to board the thriller is The Mindy Project and The Newsroom alum, Chris Messina, who could reunite with his Argo co-star should this deal pan out. Rather than a tense hostage situation, Live By Night would have Messina step into the role of Affleck’s literal partner in crime. Then again, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller and Zoe Saldana are all still circling the gestating project, which has suffered setbacks due to Affleck »

Great dancer Chris Messina is in negotiations to star opposite Ben Affleck in Live by Night, a Prohibition-era crime drama written and directed by the future Batting Gentleman.

All the actors have been considered for their parts for awhile now, but production was delayed while Affleck was being a movie star/superhero.
