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

16 hours ago | 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

18 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | 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.

Synopsis:

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 »

Highmore, who you might also remember from 2004's Finding Neverland and 2007's August Rush, is 23, and as you can see from the cover of Attitude magazine's Summer 2015 issue, he's definitely not a little boy anymore!

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

21 July 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | 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. »

‘Sword in the Stone’ Live-Action Remake in Development With ‘Game of Thrones’ Writer

20 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Continuing their strategy of reimagining animated classics into live-action movies, Disney is developing a “Sword in the Stone” movie with “Game of Thrones” writer Bryan Cogman penning the script, Variety has confirmed.

Brigham Taylor will produce the film.

The original toon was based loosely on T.H. White’s novel of the same name, which ultimately became part of the author’s multi-book King Arthur fantasy, “The Once and Future King.”

The 1963 animated pic followed a 12-year-old orphan named Arthur who became king after removing a sword from an anvil in London.

Cogman cut his teeth as one of the writers on HBO’s hit fantasy drama “Game of Thrones,” though audiences can expect this project to be on the lighter side.

The scribe tweeted a photo of himself pulling the “Sword in the Stone” at Disneyland with the caption “research.”

Disney’s The Sword In The Stone Getting Live-Action Redo

20 July 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could have called this one – as Disney plumbs the depths of its animated catalog in order to maximize the number of live-action remakes and re-imaginings it can send into theaters, 1963 animated fantasy The Sword in the Stone has been anointed as the latest title to receive an update.

Bryan Cogman, who has written episodes of HBO’s high fantasy epic Game of Thrones, will pen the script for the project, which Brigham Taylor (Disney’s upcoming Jungle Book remake) is attached to produce.

The Sword in the Stone occupies a bittersweet place in Disney history, as it was the latest animated offering to be released before Walt Disney’s death. Centering on a young King Arthur as he learned the responsibilities of being a monarch from wizened sorcerer Merlin, it was commercially successful and received solid reviews upon its release, despite drawing nowhere near the acclaim of some other Disney titles. »

'Buffy' Star Juliet Landau: One Fan Legally Changed Her Name to Drusilla!

20 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Juliet Landau appeared on 17 of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" 144 episodes ... but man, did she make an impression. Joining the show in Season Two as one half of a killer couple, Landau's Drusilla and her on-screen love Spike (James Marsters) proved to be two of the titular character's most memorable foes.  And, like her immortal character on the beloved series, the fandom love for the show never dies "The show has such a massive following. It seems to grow and grow and grow and people love to watch it over and over or bring their families into it," she tells toofab's Brian Particelli. "It’s amazing. and people are still really avid about it, it’s wonderful." But there is a line between "avid fan" and slight obsession. "I met a young woman who legally changed her name to Drusilla Summers," Landau exclaims. "She's got Dru and Buffy's last name, »

Why Batman Forever's Batsuit had nipples

17 July 2015 2:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Apparently, Batman creator Bob Kane walked around the Batman Forever set going "whoever heard of nipples on the Batsuit?"....

One of the regular sticks used to beat Joel Schumacher's pair of Batman films with was the decision to put nipples on the Batsuit worn by Val Kilmer in Batman Forever. It's not the main area of contention with the films, certainly, but let's just go with that it didn't help.

Digging through my back catalogue of magazines last week, I discovered an old issue of Premiere magazine, dating back to the film's release in May 1995. As it turns out, even before the film came out, and even before the world wide web as we know it today had risen, the nipples were an issue.

In a big interview piece to promote the film just prior to its release, Jim Carrey - who played The Riddler in the movie - »

Disney is making a live-action prequel to ‘Aladdin’

16 July 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The unending need to make live-action versions of every animated Disney film ever continues. The Hollywood Reporter revealed news yesterday that a live-action Aladdin movie, a prequel focusing on the origin of the Genie, is in development. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (who both wrote Freddy vs. Jason and the Friday the 13th remake together) are already tapped by Disney to write the film, but a director has yet to be announced. An odd choice in writers, but Disney clearly sees something in these two to give them such a monumental project.

Along the same lines as what Disney did with Maleficent in taking a substantial supporting character and giving them their own film, this new film, entitled Genies, will tell the story of how one genie became the Genie we all know and love, voiced by Robin Williams in the original 1992 film. The main issue with this movie is »
