Ben Affleck Berates Jon Stewart For Spoiling 'Gone Girl' in Outrageous 'Daily Show' Interview

1 hour ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Editor's note: We'll add video as soon as it's made available online. Ben Affleck may have out-funnied Jon Stewart on his own show. Affleck jokingly took credit for directing David Fincher's Gone Girl, claimed Stewart ripped him off for also helming a movie about Iran, and scolded the Daily Show host for "ruining" key plot points in Gone Girl and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. See more Spoiler Alert!

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice heads to Chicago

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A quick update on the shoot of Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which finds its Metropolis again next month...

Given that so much of Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is being shot on location, there's been no shortage of set snaps and videos making their way online. Expect more, too: the film's shoot still has a little way to go.

Next stop for the production? That'd be Chicago, which has been a home for Batman in the past (doubling up as Gotham City in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy), and also served as Metropolis in Man Of Steel. And it's Metropolis it'll be again in Batman V Superman, with confirmation that the movie will be shooting in downtown Chicago for the best part of a week in early November, before heading to "surrounding communities" for another week and a half.

Gone Girl Review

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

Gone Girl is a movie about two marriages. The first union is between Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) and his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike), two out-of-work writers living in small-town Missouri. The second is between director David Fincher and scribe Gillian Flynn. Both Fincher and Flynn are masters of their domain, sharing a knack for precise plotting, macabre stories and finessing those tales with slices of razor sharp comedy. The latter couple is a marriage built to last. The former, not so much.

Nick wakes up one balmy July morning – his five-year wedding anniversary, no less – and heads over to the bar that he runs with his twin sister Margo (Carrie Coons). The thirty-something husband returns home to find his dog barking madly, a glass table in his den shattered and his wife gone. Nick is aghast when the two investigators, Rhonda Boney (Kim Dickens) and Jim Gilpin (Patrick Fugit), suggest »

Ben Affleck's Son Doesn.t Want To Hear The Batman Voice, He Only Wants To Hear This

6 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If Ben Affleck were my dad, I would be pretty damn stoked that he is playing Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After all, we're not only talking about one of the most legendary superheroes of all time, but one of the greatest, most badass fictional characters ever made. I'm sure that there are many fans out there who would agree with me 100% on this, but Ben Affleck's real two-year-old son is not among them. It turns out that he couldn't care less that his dad is the Caped Crusader, and instead just wants him to perform songs from Frozen. Affleck revealed this bizarre turn of events when he was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, where he was largely promoting his new movie, Gone Girl. Answering a question about his kids, the star revealed that none of »

Ben Affleck On The Pressure Of Playing The Caped Crusader In Batman v Superman

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

In a recent interview with Variety, the trade asked Ben Affleck what he considers to be the bigger challenge: making sure that an adaptation of a beloved novel like Gone Girl does the source material justice or taking on a lead role in what they describe as the "greatest comic book franchise ever". Here's what he told them. "Probably the comicbook franchise, if only because Batman has been around since the 1930s and a fixed part of American culture. But, anytime you build a character when the audience has a firm belief on how it should be, like “Fifty Shades” or “Star Wars” … It can be an asset and a challenge. Anyone who did it would face that challenge. The truth is, it all melts away once people see the movie." Based on the borderline ridiculous reaction to Affleck being cast in the role, you can understand his position here, »

8 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Some people have been saying this week that Ben Affleck goes full frontal in the upcoming movie “Gone Girl.” And one of those people is Ben Affleck himself. “There's some brief, ah, very brief nudity, I think,” Affleck said in an interview with MTV this week. “The penis is in there. I try to get it in every movie.” Also read: ‘Gone Girl’ Reviews: Does David Fincher's Thriller Make Ben Affleck a Critically Acclaimed Killer?

'Annabelle' isn't a killer doll film and 4 more things we learned from the cast & crew

8 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Conjuring" spinoff "Annabelle" is arriving in theaters this weekend, and believe it or not, it's actually expected to outgross David Fincher's hugely-anticipated "Gone Girl" in its opening frame. There goes Ben Affleck's career! Before you help the horror flick to a box-office win, educate yourself with this list of five things I learned from cast members Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton and Alfre Woodard, director John R. Leonetti and producer James Wan at the film's recent press junket. After scrolling through the full list, check out the embedded video interviews above and below. 1. It's not a killer doll movie. "I don't make killer doll movies," said Wan after I compared the film to the classic "Twilight Zone" episode "Living Doll." "I don't know if people know the difference between psychological ventriloquist puppet, right, ventriloquism, and killer doll films, right? I'm a big fan of 'Child's Play,' I love Chucky, »

Ben Affleck on ‘Gone Girl’ Filming, ‘Batman v. Superman’ Pressure

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While there was much ado about Ben Affleck’s casting as the Caped Crusader in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” not nearly as many people took issue with the star playing the somewhat smarmy male lead in David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel “Gone Girl.” To promote the latter film, which opens Friday, Affleck participated in a Facebook chat where he answered questions about both projects.

We’ve included some of the best questions and answers here and organized them by project. Warning: There are minor “Gone Girl” spoilers for those who have not read the book.

Gone Girl

What, if anything, did you like about your character Nick?

I didn’t judge my character. I went into to it finding access points. He is designed as an everyman. He tries to be a good person: sometimes he succeeds, sometimes he fails, and sometimes people think he murders his wife. »

Metropolis Is Going To Look A Lot Like This American City In Batman v Superman

9 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After just a few short years of being away, Batman is coming back to Chicago. New reports have revealed that Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is scheduled to move production to the Windy City in the early days of November, before then moving on to several surrounding communities for another week and a half. Many of you will remember that Christopher Nolan previously had the city substitute for Gotham in his Dark Knight movies, but this time around it will be turned into Metropolis, just like it was for Man Of Steel. Rich Moskal, the director of the Chicago Film Office confirmed to My Fox Chicago that Ben Affleck.s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill.s Man Of Steel will be going toe-to-toe downtown before then moving further afield in just over a month.s time. This is reminiscent of how Man Of Steel.s production used the city »

Gone Girl Will Show Ben Affleck’s Penis, Says Ben Affleck [Updated]

10 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If, like Matt Damon, you've never seen Ben Affleck's penis, you'll soon get your chance: Affleck tells MTV News that he's got a full-frontal nude scene coming up in Gone Girl. "There's some brief — very brief — nudity," Affleck says. "The penis is in there."Actors almost always overstate the amount of skin they show onscreen, and so for confirmation we turned to Vulture's Amanda Dobbins, who has seen Gone Girl. She disagrees with Affleck's assessment: "I do not remember [seeing Ben Affleck's penis] and please know that I would remember it. My best guess is that he is talking about the shower scene, which is steamy and obscured and does not count." However, Dobbins thinks she saw Affleck's butt (and not just the one on his chin), and also maybe Neil Patrick Harris's. It's hard to say; there was a lot of sex.

Ben Affleck Talks Full-Frontal Nude Scene in Gone Girl, Says His Penis ''Looks Better in 3-D!''

10 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who's ready to see some Ben Affleck penis?! While promoting his highly anticipated new movie Gone Girl, the 42-year-old Oscar winner opened up about taking it all off and getting naked for some sexy scenes in the flick (we're talking full-frontal!). "I think there's some brief nudity in this movie," Affleck told MTV News' Josh Horowitz. "Director David [Fincher] said to me from the beginning, 'This is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character.' It's gotta be like in Europe, they just don't give a s--t about any of that stuff and they just play real people.

New Batman V Superman Description Details Revealed By Ben Affleck & MTV,New Clip

10 hours ago | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, MTV chatted up "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Batman star, Ben Affleck, and served up some small description details for the movie by confirming that it's definitely taking notes from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" video (below). In the clip, they asked Ben if Batman v Superman was influenced by The Dark Knight Returns, and he replied with: "I do think Zack Snyder was heavily influenced by The Dark Knight Returns. Everyone’s influenced by that. It’s the seminal work. I don’t think there’s any Batman movies that have been made without drawing from that book because it’s so good. If you’re smart you steal from the best." Check it out,below.

Ben Affleck's Son Prefers Jimmy Fallon's Version of 'Let It Go' to His Dad's (Video)

11 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ben Affleck might be Batman, and he might have a hotly anticipated movie coming out Friday (that would be Gone Girl). But when it comes to his kids, all that matters is that Affleck can't sing "Let It Go." "You can't tell your son - 'cause you're supposed to be his hero - that you can't sing," Affleck told Jimmy Fallon Monday on The Tonight Show before launching into a warbled, off-key version of the hit Frozen song that he belts out to his son, Samuel, 2. In fact, Affleck added, Samuel actually loves Fallon's Roots-accompanied rendition of "Let It Go" better than his pop's. »

Low quality look at Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance in Hall H a sneak peek at 2016’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman by showcasing footage from the film, along with promotional images of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. We’ve seen high-resolution, official versions of the character images for Superman and Wonder Woman, but so far Batman has been kept under wraps. Well, thanks to BatmanvSuperman2016 on Instagram (via Cbm), we now have a low-quality look at The Dark Knight in what appears to be a blue and grey Batsuit…

To be totally honest, apart from the colouring it’s not much better than the snap that made its way online during Sdcc, so let’s hope we get an official release soon…

Ben Affleck on How The Dark Knight Returns Influenced Batman V Superman

11 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Ben Affleck is currently doing the press tour for his new film Gone Girl, and he can't escape the questions about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That's got to be a little annoying for him, but he does throw a few little things here and there to make the fans happy. During an interview with MTV, the actor was asked about the influence of Frank MIller's The Dark Knight Returns on the film he's making, and he said,

"Yeah, I don't want to answer too many Batman questions because it is a Gone Girl thing, but I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that. I think everyone's heavily influenced by that...that's the seminal work. So, I don't think that there's any of these which have been made that haven't drawn from that book because it's so good. So, you know, I think if »
