Hollywood is infatuated with franchises; that is where the money is. However, every now and then the studios feel that the safest way to create a franchise is to update a pre-existing one. This does not always work; look at Tim Burton’s flawed 2001 reboot of Planet of the Apes. Some of these reboots occur within years of the original. Others have rebooted much loved franchises that could never have been topped.
Some of the biggest films this year have been reboots; Godzilla, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Rebooting is not always negative, and some of these films have been spectacular. Despite this, it is impossible not to think that some of these reboots have occurred slightly too soon.
Occasionally Hollywood studios reboot a movie to atone for previously poorly received films. Although in some cases these result in great films, »

Dylan Sellers is exiting as the Weinstein Company's president of production and acquisitions at The Weinstein Company, Sellers will be leaving the company after a two-year run and return to producing films, the company said Tuesday. It been a slow year at the box office for TWC so far. Neither “Begin Again” nor “The Giver” connected and “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” which it distributed but didn't finance, bombed. That leaves TWC to bank on awards hopefuls like the Bill Murray comedy “St. Vincent,” the Keira-Knightley-Benedict Cumberbatch drama “Imitation Game” and Tim Burton‘s “Big Eyes.” Also read: Regal, »

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”
On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.
Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Some Batman adaptations have been more successful than others, but there’s something about the Batman themes that accompany each iteration that stand the test of time. Modern audiences may not like the 1966 Batman series as much as the more “grounded” take of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy or even Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns, but man is the music good!
Thankfully for Bat-fans, The Piano Guys have compiled an incredible medley of Batman music, titled “Batman Evolution.” Oh, and they perform it in front of the three most iconic Batmobiles!
The post This Batman medley performed in front of Batmobiles is as awesome as it sounds appeared first on Flickering Myth. »

The Piano Guys have paid homage to Batman.s iconic soundtrack with a four minute and 21 second video homage that zips from the 1966 television series to Tim Burton.s 1989 cinematic reboot before finally ending on Christopher Nolan.s lauded Dark Knight trilogy with aplomb. It.s an amazing celebration of Neal Hefti, Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer.s work, and if you call yourself a Batman fan you need to spend a good portion of your day watching the above video. I know, I know . it.s pretty special isn.t it? This isn.t the first time that The Piano Guys have taken on classic movie material though, and over the last few years the group -- which consists of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek -- have replicated Star Wars, Frozen, and the Bourne trilogy.s soundtracks, while their first three major-label »
Michael Keaton is a superhero again … except, not really. In “Birdman,” he portrays Riggan Thomson, an actor who became famous for portraying an iconic superhero. Granted, Keaton was already famous when he took on the mantle of Batman in Tim Burton‘s 1989 film, but it's still something he knows a little about from personal experience. Now in his 60s — or at least Keaton is 63 — Thomson is attempting to put on a Broadway play to recapture his glory days and get back some of the respect and adulation he yearned for. That play is an adaptation of »

The United States Postal Service is honoring Batman’s 75th birthday with a special stamping collection that will be unveiled in time for next month’s New York Comic Con. The New York Comic Con takes place from Oct. 9-12 at the Jacob Javits Center, and the stamps will be released to coincide with these dates.

On our second Let’s Play video cast, Kid Atari (a.k.a. Ricky D), and Abel give Don’t Starve a second chance. Developed and published by the indie company Klei Entertainment, the game was initially released via Valve’s Steam software for Microsoft Windows, Os X, and Linux on April 23, 2013, with a PlayStation 4 port the following year and further versions for the PlayStation Vita, iOS, and mobile phones under consideration. Fans of survival games will enjoy Don’t Starve, a game highly influenced by Minecraft, which spearheaded this trend, as well as by filmmaker Tim Burton, for its visuals. Don’t Starve starts off slow but continues to get even harder as you play. It can leave some players feeling frustrated, but if you’re looking for a roguelike game filled with charm and challenge, this is it!
The game follows a scientist named Wilson who finds himself in a dark, »
Director Tim Burton is preparing to go into production on his next film, which is an adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire, Sin City 2) is already set to play the title character, and now the director is looking to cast Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield as the other lead.
The news comes from The Wrap, who says, "Butterfield has not received an official offer yet, insiders say one is expected to materialize soon, as he's Burton's choice for the coveted role."
The story follows a teenager who must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to get them.
If Butterfield gets the part, he would play 16-year-old Jacob Portman, "who seeks the truth about his grandfather's past after he's murdered by a 'hollow,' a vicious creature that Jacob had thought to be imaginary. »

Filmmakers have been obsessed with Frankenstein since James Whale brought Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel to life and instantly gave birth to an iconic monster franchise that remains a major priority for Universal. It’s one of the most important public domain properties in fiction, but reanimating the Green Guy into a worthy anti-hero isn’t easy. Everyone from Kenneth Branagh, Robert De Niro and Aaron Eckhart have discovered you need more than neck bolts to spark a good movie. The futility hasn’t stopped Candyman and Immortal Beloved director Bernard Rose, who’s returning to horror filmmaking with his own modern take on the Frankenstein legend. He shot his in downtown Los Angeles, with Xavier Samuel, Carrie-Anne Moss, Danny Huston, and Tony Todd starring in a Frankenfilm set against the backdrop of the contemporary 3D bio-printing revolution. “They’re already 3D-printing organs, so to actually print an entire human being »

The Equalizer had no trouble claiming first place on Friday, opening to an estimated $12.6 million from 3,236 locations. That puts the Sony/Columbia thriller on track for around $35 million this weekend: by far the best bow for an R-rated September release. Based on the 1980’s TV series of the same name, The Equalizer looks like it will become the latest Denzel Washington vehicle to over-perform at the box office. Since 2004, the actor has not had a single wide release open below $20 million – a record that even perennial box office favorites like Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg cannot match. The Equalizer reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, his Training Day director. Fuqua's previous career high was the $30.3 million debut of 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen. Friday’s top five after the jump. After seven days at number one, The Maze Runner fell to second place on Friday. The adaptation of the young adult novel »

When we talk about difficult film productions, the same names seem to come through. Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter, for instance, are productions with well-told stories of how those behind the scenes went to proverbial hell and back. In more recent times, most of us are more than familiar with the hell that those behind World War Z went through to get it to the screen.
What I though would be a bit different though is take a generally very successful film, and dig a bit deeper to see if there was a troubled story there. One where behind the scenes issues are rarely talked about. Given that I've come to this piece straight after writing about 1991's movies, here, I settled on The Addams Family. »
