Ben Affleck Slams Jon Stewart for Spoiling Gone Girl, Being a "Copycat"—Watch Now!

31 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bros don't spoil other bros' movies—right, Jon Stewart? The Daily Show host might have intentionally done just that to Ben Affleck Tuesday, when, after receiving a "little bro hug" that made him feel "like your son after a little league game," he "ruined" the endings of Gone Girl and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. "Don't give anything away," warned the Oscar winner, 42. So when Stewart went ahead and gave two theoretically possible endings to Gone Girl, which hits theaters Friday, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which isn't out until March 2016, Affleck was not exactly amused. "What the f--k!" he scolded Stewart jokingly. "Are »

Watch Ben Affleck and Jon Stewart Make Fun of Each Other Like Best Bros

33 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night, Jon Stewart sat down with Ben Affleck's penis and the body attached to it to talk about Gone Girl and being Batman. Well, kind of. Mostly they just give each other shit like two friends who went to high school together in the Northeast, whose relationships haven't really evolved. Affleck makes fun of Stewart for making a movie about Iran after Affleck famously did so. Stewart spoils the ending of Gone Girl and Batman v Superman, kind of, but not really. And then they make out. Okay, they don't make out, but they do make really warm eye contact when they shake hands. »

Ben Affleck Reveals The Origins Of The Batman V Superman/Star Wars Back-And-Forths

1 hour ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It all began with a picture of Henry Cavill (Superman) draped in a Jedi robe, sporting a lightsaber...or did it? Over the past few months, both Zack Snyder and J.J Abrams have been posting picture/video homages to each other's currently shooting movies. The latest was actually our first officially released set vid of the Millennium Falcon, revealing a a built-in mini Batmobile! We all hope this little back-and-forth continues, but how did it start? In an interview with Yahoo! , Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman) spills all. “I think it was started because Jj [Abrams] and Colin Anderson, who is a great [camera] operator who always works on my movies, and Jj is always trying to steal, and I’m trying to steal back, sent me a picture of the two of them wearing cheap Batman masks. I showed it to Zack [Snyder], and said ‘this is bullshit, we have to do something'. »

You have director David Fincher to thank for this scene as he insisted on having Affleck in the nude. "It's ironic, because David 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," Affleck added. Turns out, he meant "naked underbelly" literally.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice heads to Chicago

8 hours 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

9 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

12 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

14 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, »

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

14 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

14 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. »

15 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.
