10 Guillermo Del Toro Movies That Are Never Going To Happen

30 January 2016 4:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wc

Hot on the heels of the surprising success of the Goosebumps movie comes the announcement of another movie based on another 1980s/90s children’s horror anthology book series: the genuinely too disturbing for most kids Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. With regular Tim Burton scripter John August tasked with penning a script a couple of years ago, the project has suddenly received a boost from the attachment of director Guillermo Del Toro.

Is Del Toro’s involvement really likely to enhance a movie’s chances of getting made, though? The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth helmer is undoubtedly popular with film fans, but his lack of ever making a big earning blockbuster makes it harder and harder for his cherished projects to come to the screen. Indeed, while compatriots and sometime collaborators Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu have been lining up for their Oscars, »

Michael Sheen joins Finding Dory voice cast

28 January 2016 10:31 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) will lend his voice to Pixar’s Finding Dory, this year’s sequel to the 2003 hit Finding Nemo.

The news comes from an episode of the podcast Doug Loves Movies, hosted by Doug Benson (Super High Me), which was released about two weeks back. Towards the end of the January 13th episode, on which Greg Proops and Julian McCullough also guested, when asked if he had any upcoming projects to plug, Sheen casually brought up his involvement in the sequel. The actor said, “Finding Nemo 2 should be coming out at some point… which I’m in.”

In 2016, Sheen will also be reprising his role as the White Rabbit from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in Alice Through the Looking Glass; in addition to that, he will act alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in Morten Tyldum’s Passengers. »

Is The Dark Knight A Killer In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

28 January 2016 3:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will introduce us to the DC Films Universe version of the Caped Crusader for the first time, but is this Batman going to kill? While the comic book version of the character has always been against taking lives, Tim Burton’s Batman killed, and Christopher Nolan’s version left Ra’s al Ghul to die in Batman Begins.

With that in mind, would it really be a big deal if Ben Affleck’s older and hardened Dark Knight were to deal with criminals in an equally brutal manner? Well, here’s what producer Charles Roven had to say on the matter:

“[Batman] is not giving people a chance. He is more than a vigilante. He has become not only the cop, if you will, he has also become the jury and executioner. He’s older, [and] he’s seen the worst of what man can do. »

Goodbye Capitol Cinema

25 January 2016 1:22 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Even though it closed it's doors to the public on December 1st 2005, the Capitol Cinema on Cork City's Grand Parade is now, finally, about to go under the hammer. Literally. Demolition and renovation into a brand new retail space is about to get underway, and while it's a huge positive for Cork City, the Capitol will always have a place in Corkonians hearts. My own included. My memories of the Capitol go back to it's reopening on August 11th 1989. After closing for refurbishment in January of the same year, the new look Capitol was a sight to behold. Screen 1 was immense, and more importantly, they installed Dolby Digital. One of the first screens in the country to do so. On that opening night, I queued with my Dad and Tim Burton's Batman blew everybody away, not to mention rattling our bones to dust with an amazing soundtrack on the newly installed sound system. »

Now that 2015 is over, there are plenty of ‘Best Of’ lists pronouncing the movies you should have seen already. Hell, even we did it at Flickering Myth. But by the end of the year, it’s too late.

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »

At a couple points in your life, you’ve probably said Beetlejuice to yourself three times, just to see what would happen. Sadly, it just doesn’t work the way it does in Tim Burton‘s classic 1988 horror comedy. But now if you say Beetlejuice three times and you have some extra cash lying around, you can […]

The Deadly Tower Of Monsters Review: Cool Concept, Awesome Execution

20 January 2016 5:18 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

I grew up on cheesy sci-fi movies and serials. As a kid, I loved seeing the strings on the flying monsters, plastic flora that never moved, and cheap wooden sets that shook when someone bumped into them. I was an Ed Wood fan decades before Tim Burton introduced the world to the amazing auteur. So when Ace Team and Atlus announced they were creating a game that took all of those B-movie elements, and made a single-player action-adventure game out of them, I was on-board 100 percent. The Deadly Tower of Monsters is that game, and it is magnificent.

I first got my hands on an early build of The Deadly Tower of Monsters at last year's E3. In a show that saw a new Batman game, a new Fallout game, a sublime Call of Duty game, and so many other huge titles, Deadly Tower of Monsters was one of my favorite games played. »

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 1990s

The sensational, overlooked film scores from the years 1990 to 1999 that really are well worth digging out...

The movies went through tumultuous and exciting changes in the nineties. Quentin Tarantino exploded onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs, Generation X gave rise to slacker marvels like Clerks, and blockbusters like The Matrix put the awe back into special effects.

However, the 90s was also a sensational decade for film music, gifting us classics including the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic, Total Recall, Braveheart and countless others. But the sheer quality of these soundtrack treasures shouldn’t overshadow those undervalued hidden gems that demonstrate the extraordinary range and versatility of our finest film composers, ones that may have passed you by. So here’s our selection of those incredible works: ranging from the earworming to the unsettling, the melodic to the chaotic, these are the scores that simply demand your attention. »

'Pee-wee's Big Holiday' Teaser Harkens Back to 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure'

19 January 2016 6:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Among the many things wrong with 1988's Big Top Pee-wee, one major disappointment is with the title character's home. In that installment, Pee-wee Herman resides in a simple farm house, and besides his secret science lab we don't see much of it. What we do see is rather bland for the character, who in 1985's Pee-wee's Big Adventure has a tricked-out home filled with Rube Goldberg-esque inventions and other fun features.  Paul Reubens, who plays the character (or is it best to call it his alter ego?), must be aiming to please fans of the earlier movie with his upcoming Netflix feature, Pee-wee's Big Holiday. Not only does the title evoke the classic Tim Burton-helmed comedy, but now the first teaser is almost entirely focused on...
