'Daredevil': New photos from Marvel series -- exclusive

2 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Forget Ben Affleck. Netflix’s Daredevil is “the exact opposite” of Affleck’s much-maligned 2003 bomb, promises showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. Expect the classic origin story to remain unchanged: Blinded as a child, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is a lawyer by day who hunts criminals by night (he apparently doesn’t get much sleep). But this upcoming iteration of Daredevil—the first of Netflix’s multi-show deal with Marvel that also includes A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage—is more influenced by 1970s mean-street films like The French Connection and Taxi Driver than traditional superhero titles. "There aren’t »

Special Feature: 'Batman vs. Superman' rumour mill

14 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

If you're a fan of superhero films (or comics for that matter), you're probably familiar with the basic details of the upcoming Man of Steel sequel. It's entitled Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015) and appears to be every bit a prequel to an eventual Justice League film. Here are the basics: Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer will direct and write, respectively; Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), and Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry/Aquaman) will comprise the bulk of the cast from a superhero perspective; Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) will also be a part of the project, and you can find the full cast and crew listings at IMDb.

10 Most Shockingly Brilliant Movie Moments In 2014

18 December 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

There were some painful inevitabilities in 2014: Michael Bay’s films made a bucket-load of money despite being mostly terrible, South Korean (Allegedly) didn’t take too kindly to Sony’s The Interview and the last Hobbit movie proved that Peter Jackson unnecessarily over-reached. In terms of the front-runners of the year, it was no surprise that comic book movies basically ruled the box office, or that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Imitation Game was little more than Oscar bait, but amongst the clanging inevitabilities and the lack of surprises there were some revelations.

Despite the high frequency of comic book movies, sequels and franchise starters, the filmic landscape of the last twelve years packed a variety of surprises: some meant that films were over-rated, some under-rated, and some were so atypical that they utterly defied most expectations that came with them pre-release. This was the year of a talking tree, »

Scott Foundas’ Top 10 Films of 2014

17 December 2014 3:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a year of many tortured geniuses onscreen — Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking, J.M.W. Turner, Brian Wilson — and behind the scenes, where directors like Bong Joon-ho, James Gray and Paul Schrader fought producers and distributors over final cut, and the right to see their films properly released. Of course, the very idea of distribution has become nearly as diffuse in the digital era as that of film itself, a material on which few movies are still made and even fewer shown — unless you happen to be Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan, who earned the ire of some theater owners when he demanded they reinstall 35mm projectors if they wanted to screen his “Interstellar” two days early. In light of the film’s $600 million worldwide gross (and counting), one can only say: poor them.

Speaking of “Interstellar,” if there was one undeniable constant at the movies in 2014, it was time, »

The destruction in Man of Steel will play a major part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 December 2014 3:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.

Warning – potential spoilers…

So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

11 Awesome Movie Performances That Won’t Win Awards This Year (But Totally Deserve To)

16 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

The 2015 awards season is upon us, and while excellent, deserving titles like Boyhood, Birdman, and Selma are poised to dominate all of the shows, we wanted to reward some of the films and performances that deserve love, too.

As we look back on the movies of 2014, we’re proud to announce the first-ever VH1 Celebie Awards, which reward the best of the rest.

Best Girl in the Boys’ Club: Rose Byrne in Neighbors

[Photo Credit: Universal Pictures]

All of the posters and previews for the riotous comedy Neighbors put the focus on Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Zac Efron’s abs, but the real star of the movie was Byrne. Rather than be relegated to the role of the nagging, no-fun wife that so often plagues male-driven comedies, Byrne played a cool, sexy, hilarious, and, most importantly, human mother and wife who could not only keep up with the boys, but ran circles around them. »

The year in comic book TV: Go small or go home?

16 December 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This is, to put it plainly, one hell of a time to be a comic book nerd.   All my favorite characters(*) are making the leap from the page to either the big or small screen. Marvel can seemingly do no wrong with its film output, turning an obscure and downright goofy property like "Guardians of the Galaxy" into one of the year's biggest and most beloved hits. TV's most popular comedy ("Big Bang Theory") has a comic book shop as one of its primary sets, and a main character often seen in Flash and Green Lantern t-shirts. TV's most popular drama series ("The Walking Dead") is based on a long-running comic book, and there are currently five other comic-based shows airing on the broadcast networks (ABC's "Marvel's Agents of Shield," Fox's "Gotham," NBC's "Constantine" and the CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash"), with more coming fast. (The CW has "iZombie" set for mid-season, »

16 December 2014 3:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Keaton has revealed why he does not feel jealousy for other Batman actors.

The Batman and Batman Returns was asked whether he, like Christian Bale, feels jealous about Ben Affleck's role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"No," he told Shortlist. "Do you know why?

"Because I'm Batman. I'm very secure in that."

Keaton recently played a washed-up superhero actor in acclaimed comedy Birdman, which opened in the Us last year and will arrive in the UK on January 1.

TV Shows We Can't Wait for in 2015

16 December 2014 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.

"The Walking Dead"

The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

What's Up With Supes In 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'?

15 December 2014 7:56 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since the sequel to Man of Steel manifested itself in the form of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, much has been made of the fact that Superman seems like a bit player in his own sequel. From fans to writers (myself included), much fun has been derived from this idea that the film has become so over-stuffed with characters and plot lines intended to launch other franchises that Big Blue was more a third banana than a second fiddle. But now comes this report from our friend Devin Faraci over at BadAss Digest that seems to clarify things for fans worried that the Man of Steel was being marginalized in his own sequel. 

Please be aware, there are some major, Major *Spoilers* Ahead! Faraci has had a look at a pre-filming script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so while some details may changed, there are plenty »

FilmNation has sold the U.K. and Germany to StudioCanal, France to Metropolitan, Australia to Roadshow, Italy to Adler, Russia to Central Partnership, Canada to eOne, Latin America to Sun and Scandinavia to Svensk.

CAA and Wme Global will handle U.S. rights in Berlin.

Nicolas Gonda, Sarah Green and Ken Kao are producing. Malick’s last film, “To the Wonder,” starred Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko and grossed less than $3 million worldwide. His 2011 film, “The Tree of Life,” took in more than $50 million worldwide.

Beauty vs Beast: Miss Scarlett Decides

15 December 2014 5:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Fiddle-dee-dee y'all it's Jason from Mnpp here with today's sweeping Southern epic edition of "Beauty vs Beast." Yes indeedy today is the 75th anniversary of the biggest movie that ever was and probably ever will be - David O. Selznick's Gone With the Wind (if any movie's ownership belongs to its producer, it's this one) premiered in Atlanta on this day in 1939. Three hundred thousand people lined the streets surrounding the Loews Grand Theater, the cap of three days worth of festivities which brought over a million people to the city. Most of the stars attended, save Leslie Howard who'd returned to England because of WWII, as well as Hattie McDaniel and the other black actors in the film who would've been segegrated from the rest of the cast thanks to Jim Crow. (A situation echoed several months later when McDaniel had to make her way from the back »

'Batman v Superman' Rumor Reveals Epic Fight Details

15 December 2014 3:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wrapped just a few weeks ago, with director Zack Snyder now starting the lengthy post-production process on this superhero adventure. There will be Spoilers that follow, so, as always, read on at your own risk. While we wait for the first trailer to surface, Badass Digest has new plot details that tease a major fight between Superman (Henry Cavill) and the villainous Doomsday, along with plot points that may have been put in place to alleviate some fans' concerns from last year's Man of Steel.

The story opens with Batman's (Ben Affleck) origins then fast forwards to Bruce Wayne coming to Metropolis during the Superman/Zod fight in Man of Steel. The script by Chris Terrio, which was turned in just before production started, then turns its attention primarily to Superman. He is now living with Lois Lane and »

Holy crap was the trailer for Terrence Malick's 'Knight of Cups' worth the wait

15 December 2014 2:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Um, did Terrence Malick go off and channel David Cronenberg or Gaspar Noé or is the "Knight of Cups" trailer just an amazing bit of marking? We've been waiting a while for this one and, well, it sure as hell looks like it was worth the wait. The film was announced this morning as a 2015 Berlinale premiere, and a new synopsis has come along as well. To wit: "Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?" Er, Ok. »
