2 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's nothing too reveaing in this interview (the next time you speak to the director of one of the most highly anticipated comic book movies of all-time, it might be nice to slip in just one or two questions about the movie itself) with Zack Snyder, but his comments on Detroit and how he feels about the fans trying to spoil Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with set photos and spoilers are still very interesting. Share your thoughts on the filmmaker's comments in the usual place! Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, and Jeremy IronsBatman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be released on March 25th, 2016. »

Michael Bay Following 'Transformers 4' with Benghazi Film '13 Hours'c

7 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Director Michael Bay has been making Transformers movies for the better part of the last decade, with the most recent installment budgeted just north of $200 million and raking in more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, but now that Bay intends to turn the blockbuster franchise over to someone new, it seems he's keen on making something smaller and more serious. Per the The Hollywood Reporter, Bay is circling 13 Hours, a political drama about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. State Department compound in Benghazi, which left one U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans dead. Chuck Hogan, who wrote the novel that became Ben Affleck's The Town, is adapting the script from author Michael Zuckoff's book "13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi". The film is set up at Paramount. As a filmmaker, Bay gets a lot of flak these days, primarily »

You Haven't Seen 'Gone Girl' Until You've Seen It Reenacted by Kittens (Video)

12 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that David Fincher's "Gone Girl" is one of our favorite movies. It's a sleek, taut thriller that is gorgeously photographed, psychologically complex, and asks deeper questions about the nature of marriage, contemporary gender roles, and the media's vampire-like thirst for blood. But one thing that the movie was desperately missing was kittens. Sure, there was a cat. But no kittens. Thankfully, the Internet has heard our prayers and responded accordingly.

This trailer, by the Pet Collective, dubbed the "Gone Girl (Cute Kitten Version)" is pretty self-explanatory - it runs through some of the more memorable moments from the film, throws in a lot of super-obvious puns, and comes out on the other side unscathed. Our favorite part is when the kitten-version of Detective Boney asks the kitten-version of Ben Affleck about his massive credit card debt and Kittenfleck responds with, "I don't have a general understanding of currency. »

10 Actors Who Should Play Ben Affleck’s Batman Villains

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Batman has arguably one of the greatest rogues galleries in comic book history. The Dark Knight’s rogues have – for the most part – managed to toe the line between silly and frightening, between out of the ordinary and trite, without ever becoming mundane.

At the end of the day Batman is just a man, and there’s an ocean of depth beneath the cowl for villains to exploit. He’s not always running the streets, engaging with his foes in hand to hand combat; sometimes a villain comes along that tests his intelligence as much as his combat prowess.

When it was announced that Ben Affleck would be donning the cape and cowl for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman/Superman movie a number of fanboys threw a hissy fit that would have made Angelica from Rugrats proud (though, they seemed to get over it rather quickly).

It looks like Michael Bay's picked his next film to direct

17 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Bay is going from Transformers: Age Of Extinction to a true story, 13 Hours...

With over $1bn in the bank and counting for its latest outing, Transformers has once again proven itself the most critic-proof movie franchise on the planet (well, outside of Pirates Of The Caribbean). Transformers: Age Of Extinction's gross to date is $1.08bn, slightly down on Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, but still more than enough to reward the investment in it. The DVD and Blu-ray release is yet to come as well.

Michael Bay had hinted that he wouldn't direct another Transformers film after Age Of Extinction, and at the very least, it looks like he's after a smaller-sized production again. He made Pain And Gain between the last two Transformers films, and it might be he's on the lookout for something of that ilk once more.

The Hollywood Reporter reckons he's opting for 13 Hours as his next project, »

Zack Snyder Teases The Introduction Of More Obscure DC Characters In Justice League

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Warner Brothers announced their upcoming slate of DC Comics films earlier this month, it became apparent that the studio (and director Zack Snyder) would be populating the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe with household names, namely Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern, along with well established and popular characters like Shazam and Cyborg. However, that doesn’t mean that more obscure heroes won’t be making their way to the big screen, something that Snyder himself confirmed today.

The director called into a local Detroit radio station, first and foremost to thank the city for its hospitality and for all of the support that its citizens have shown Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He also gave a little hint about the future Justice League roster, and suggested that we could see some relatively unknown characters join the fray:

Live everyday like it's Caturday: Cinema's top cats

29 October 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The internet has had its way.  Today is National Cat Day for our neighbours south of the border, and while we wish it was International Cat Day so we could celebrate our Canadian feline friends, we’re turning to our attention to our purrfect pals on the big screen.

A brief glimpse of Ben Affleck’s anatomy in Gone Girl may be capturing the headlines, but we’re focused on his orange tabby co-star (real name: Bleecker), who waits patiently for Affleck and Rosamund Pike to work out their differences.    Bill Murray also shares his screen time with a fluffy white cat in St. VincentFelix the cat seems to be the only real companion for his curmudgeon of a character who seems averse to human interaction.

In honour of National Cat Day and because we strive to live every day like it’s Caturday, here are our picks for »

Rumoured details about Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight from Batman v Superman

29 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Affleck’s personal trainer Rehan Jalali has allegedly revealed some details about Affleck’s incarnation of the Dark Knight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As always the sources claiming that Jalali leaked this are vague and this may just be pure speculation. Nevertheless, the report claims the following:

There are two Batsuits (we’ve seen them both before — he has a traditional Batsuit, and an armored Batsuit like in “The Dark Knight Returns”). The armored suit has Kryptonite all over it, and it can shoot missiles. There are two Batmobiles. Affleck has a shirtless scene as Bruce Wayne to show off his new physique. The shirtless scene is beautifully shot and shows Affleck overlooking a destroyed city (probably Metropolis?).

Most of this information we had already gathered from seeing the leaked trailer, stills released by the studio, and other rumours. Kryptonite has yet to be introduced into the series, »

Rekha to take on Shah Rukh Khan next Friday

29 October 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

As expected Happy New Year has taken an unprecedented opening, leaving the competition gasping for breath.

The buzz in the film trade suggests that some of the Hindi and Hollywood films lined up for the coming Friday are now shying away from release.

The two big Hollywood releases next week the Brad Pitt war saga Fury and the Ben Affleck mystery thriller Gone Girl find it hard to get a decent number of shows at viewer-friendly times.

A spokesperson from a leading multiplex chain said, "Considering their cast and high-profile release globally Gone Girl and Fury would under normal circumstances, get major releases. But Happy New Year is expected to sustain significantly in the second week. There are three Hindi and three Hollywood releases lined up for next week. Some of them would have to be either be postponed or relegated to odd timings. Happy New Year will rule the second week. »

It's been a long time (15 years to be exact) since Jennifer Garner walked her first Hollywood red carpet alongside her then-husband Scott Foley. In the years since, she's made a name for herself with roles on the small and big screens including Alias and 13 Going on 30; made a life with Ben Affleck and their three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel; and made some pretty impressive appearances in front of the camera. We can't help but notice that while she's gone through plenty of changes along the way, her sparkly smile hasn't changed that much at all. Start scrolling to see the actress and mom, then and now. »

Ben Affleck, Amy Adams and Zack Snyder Want You to Help Save the Bats

28 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It’s not unusual for movies to do tie-ins with charitable organizations, or find causes to champion that fit with their subject matter – but it is sort of unusual when we see a superhero movie do it. This is what’s happening with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – which has partnered with the Organization for Bat Conservation to promote National Save the Bats week. Is this a subtle hint that Bat-fleck needs saving in the new movie? Ben Affleck, Zack Snyder and Amy Adams shot this video (alongside some cute kids) to alert fans to the dangers of White Nose Syndrome – a disease that’s decimating bat communities in North America and Canada. You may find yourself thinking “no big deal – we don’t need bats anyway,” and...
