Nicolas Cage would have loved to have seen Tim Burton's Superman Lives

11 hours ago | | See recent JoBlo news »

Tim Burton's Superman film that almost was, Superman Lives, was the subject of the recently released documentary by Jon Schnepp by the name of The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?. Sadly one of the few people who Schnepp was unable to talk to was the man who would have played the Man of Steel himself, Nicolas Cage. During an interview with Yahoo Movies, Nicolas Cage was asked about his... Read More »

Why It's Better Nic Cage's Superman Movie Didn.t Happen, According To Nic Cage

11 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Long before Bryan Singer made Superman Returns, it was going to be Tim Burton who brought the Man of Steel back to the big screen, the director signing Nicolas Cage to star in Superman Lives. That project wound up not getting made due to multiple factors, but it turns out that Cage actually doesn't have a problem with that, given that he thinks the movie is better off existing in all of our individual imaginations. Cage recently sat down with Yahoo! in promotion of his new movie Runner, and it was during their conversation that the subject of the doomed Superman Lives came up. The actor was asked about the documentary that was recently released about the project, titled The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, and while he didn't really have anything incredibly specific to say about the movie, he did express a lack of regrets regarding the project's »

This month we got a peek into Tim Burton’s aborted 90s take on the Man of Steel with the release of director Jon Schnepp’s documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

Well, during an interview this week for his new film The Runner, Yahoo! Movies did manage to get a few words out of Cage, although he was reluctant to go into much detail, save for praising Burton’s vision for the character.

“The only thing I’ll say about that — because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball  — but I will say that I had great belief in that »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Batmobile Described As “Sexy Tank,” Designer Talks Tumbler Differences And Batwing

29 July 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you haven’t already had your fill of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, following new stills, interviews and the fact that it will feature a “f*cked up” Caped Crusader, Empire Online’s coverage of Zack Snyder’s event film has brought forth further information about next year’s tentpole, specifically in relation to Bruce Wayne’s vehicular companions. After all, we can’t let Bats and Supes have all the attention now, can we?

Long before Warner Bros. released any official footage from Dawn of Justice, it was the Batmobile that drew a lot of interest thanks to a slew of leaked photos, forcing Snyder’s hand to debut the official snap you see above. As a mishmash of the hulking Tumbler and elongated speedster from Tim Burton’s films, the new take on the Batmobile is quite unique in style, and Production Designer Patrick Tatopoulos would »

Watch Danny DeVito, Jimmy Fallon Play Inflatable Flip Cup

29 July 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"You've gone from Taxi to this," Jimmy Fallon cracked at Danny DeVito during Tuesday's Tonight Show, as the duo geared up for a game of inflatable flip cup. "When this is over, I'm gonna kick your ass," the actor fired back. Host and guest channeled their inner frat boys as they raced to down Solo cups of beer and flip over the cups, all while wearing random poofy suits. 

Fallon took an early lead in the contest, holding on for a victory – despite a strong surge from DeVito, whom Fallon »

Movie Review – The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (2015)

28 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, 2015.

Directed by Jon Schnepp.

Featuring Tim Burton, Jon Peters, Kevin Smith, Dan Gilroy, Wesley Strick, Colleen Atwood, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Grant Morrison.


A documentary about the proposed 1998 Superman Lives feature film that would have starred Nicolas Cage.

Despite never making it to the screen, Superman Lives is a project which it seems will live forever in infamy. Directed by Tim Burton, and with Nicolas Cage set to lead the cast as Superman, it spent several years in development before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug just weeks before cameras started rolling, leaving fans to forever wonder ‘what might have been’. Well, thankfully we now have writer-director Jon Schnepp’s documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? to peel back the curtain on Burton’s offbeat take on the Man of Steel as it attempts to answer that very question.

For fans of comic book movies, »

Review: The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

27 July 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Put a group of movie lovers in a pub, give them a few beers and one topic that will inevitably come up is speculation about films that were never made, and top of that list is usually Tim Burton’s infamous Superman movie.

As something of a more than casual Superman fan, I have to admit that my personal preference for the best portrayal of the Man of Steel on screen, whether big or small, is Christopher Reeve’s iconic take in Richard Donner’s Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980). I’ve got nothing particularly against Richard Lester’s version of the sequel, but Donner’s more than nails it for me.

That said, I can’t help but wonder, and have on many an occasion in the afore mentioned alcohol fuelled debates with my cinephile friends, just what Superman would have looked like if played by Nicolas Cage and directed by Tim Burton. »

007 contenders for Spectre's theme song: Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Adele and the rest

27 July 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre director Sam Mendes says the latest Bond theme has already been recorded, but we're still none the wiser as to who'll be crooning over the film's opening credits.

8 coolest things you didn't spot in the Spectre trailer

22 best and worst Bond theme songs ranked

Ahead of the announcement of Spectre's theme song, we look at the contenders to follow in the footsteps of Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner et al.

1. Ellie Goulding

Why it could be them: No stranger to movie soundtracks, Goulding has lent tunes to everything from About Time to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Fifty Shades of Grey. Her ethereal voice would certainly add an interesting flavour to Spectre, and Sam Smith certainly seems to think she has it in the bag.

Most Bondian track: 'My Blood'

2. Adele

Why it could be them: The 007 producers successfully brought back director Sam Mendes »

Tim Burton Unveils 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Logo

24 July 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton is embracing social media in the promotion of his latest fantasy adventure. He jumped on his personal Facebook page last night to share the first official look at his upcoming adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. While we don't get to see any of the characters yet, we do get to see the home mentioned in the title. And we get some bird symbolism. It looks like nothing but blue skies for these strange kids who are about to get a very unexpected visitor.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs. We won't get to see the movie until March 4, 2016, so a trailer may still be miles away. The movie has quite an ensemble of fan-favorite talent, lead by Asa Butterfield, who lost out on the role of Spider-Man just in the last few months. At least he has »

Back for the future: rating Disney's slate of live-action fantasy remakes

23 July 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Will Tim Burton’s Dumbo, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Pinocchio and Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book be able to hold a candle to the classic animated originals?

Plundering your back catalogue is an old Hollywood trick, but it doesn’t always work out. Disney almost ran its famed animation unit into the ground around the turn of the century with cheap sequels to classic films such as Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid and even Dumbo, leaving its reputation as a creative force in tatters.

Who does Evangeline Lilly want to play the original Wasp?

23 July 2015 2:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Those of you who caught Marvel's latest blockbuster Ant-Man will have been introduced to classic comic book character The Wasp for the first time.

Though the original character Janet van Dyne was only glimpsed briefly in flashback (and teased with Evangeline Lilly in the post-credits scene), director Peyton Reed has made it pretty clear that the character is still alive in the quantum realm.

But who could play Janet in future McU movies? Michael Douglas has already made the case for Catherine Zeta-Jones in the role, and now Evangeline Lilly (who plays Janet's daughter Hope) has thrown a new name into the mix.

"It's got to be Michelle Pfeiffer," Lilly told Cinema Blend, adding that she was a huge fan of the star in Tim Burton's Batman Returns.

"That was my favourite of all time of all the comic book female characters, but Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. Not just anybody or anything, »

'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' Star Freddie Highmore Does Sexy Photo Shoot -- See Him Now!

22 July 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Freddie Highmore has come a long way since the chocolate factory! 10 years after the former child star charmed fans in Tim Burton's "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," the now 23-year-old Brit is gracing the cover of Attitude magazine's Summer 2015 issue. While the cover was first unveiled in May, it randomly started to pick up traction today thanks to a Buzzfeed post. The handsome actor, who currently stars as Norman Bates on "Bates Motel," talks about his new mature look. "I think in a way, being judged as a sex symbol and being famous almost go hand in hand but it is not something I have ever sought," he tells the mag. "It's tricky because these days success relies on promoting the film or the show more and more, and promoting the actors via Twitter and social media, which I am not on. There is more and more pressure on »

Remember the little boy who starred opposite Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

'Game of Thrones' Writer to Pen Live-Action 'Sword in the Stone'

21 July 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Disney has added yet another beloved cartoon classic to its roster of upcoming live-action remakes: The Sword in the Stone.

Variety reports that Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman will pen the updated take on the 1963 film. Originally written by Bill Peet — and based on T. H. White's book of the same name — The Sword in the Stone told King Arthur's fictionalized origin story as an orphan who proves himself worthy of royalty as he does the impossible by pulling a sword from a stone.

Now Disney's doing a live action Sword In The Stone too

20 July 2015 11:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney enlists some help from Game Of Thrones to bring Sword In The Stone back to the big screen...

I think we can safely conclude by now that Disney reckons it's onto something with taking its animated classics and making live action spins on them. Some more directly than others.

Last week's revelation was that it was working on an Aladdin origins movie called Genies, with the idea being that that would lead to a full live action Aladdin feature. This week? It's Sword In The Stone that's been added to the roster.

The 1963 animated movie told the story of a young King Arthur, who Merlin is teaching the ropes to. Disney has enlisted Bryan Cogman, one of the writers and producers on Game Of Thrones, to pen a screenplay for the film. Brigham Taylor, who's also overseeing the live action take on The Jungle Book, will be producing the movie. »
