Batman at the Movies – The Films That Never Were

10 February 2017 6:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the Batman films that never were…

One of the most lucrative and successful movie franchises in cinematic history, Batman prefigured the current superhero franchise craze and set the standard after Tim Burton’s 1989 picture established a succession of films which changed the long-held perception of Batman on screen as a camp throwback to his 1960’s colourful incarnation. As The Lego Batman Movie debuts, launching the Caped Crusader into a new animated dimension, it’s interesting to consider the numerous Batman projects that never made it out of development hell, because even though we’ve had the Christopher Nolan trilogy in recent years which sent the character into the stratosphere, it’s not always been plain sailing for the Dark Knight.

Batman vs Superman

“But this film happened?!” a million voices all cried out in terror. Yes indeed, last year’s Dawn of Justice, part of the formative and troubled DC Extended Universe, »

4 February 2017 10:11 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Super Bowl is a collective television event like no other. Not only do the night’s ratings inevitably top the year, but everyone is actually gathering together at the same time to watch live. With so many eyeballs glued to a TV screen in real time, it’s no wonder the marketing gurus bring out their best stuff for Super Bowl Sunday — or at least they try.

Below is a running list — updated throughout the big game — of the best and worst Super Bowl spots we’ve seen, with a brief review and grade for each. Let us know what you think in the comments, and vote in the poll for the best and worst ads when the game ends.

Audi – #DriveProgress

Hell yes, Audi! In a surprisingly issue-focused ad for a luxury car company, Audi put an innocent face to an age-old American problem: pay equality. How could »

How ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and ‘Hell or High Water’ Could Find Oscar Success With Male Voters

4 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, voters tend to think highbrow. They like to represent the best, most humane, classiest version of themselves.

But don’t forget the Steak Eaters.

The Academy is full of them. They’re red-blooded males (not just American) — often directors, writers, and craftspeople. They’re the guys who voted for Oscar-winners “Argo,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Braveheart,” “Gladiator,” “Avatar,” and yes, “Crash” over “Brokeback Mountain.”

“They vote for big movies that make big money, good solid moviemaking with great actors and good storytelling,” one veteran Oscar campaigner told me. In recent years, this faction of the Academy voted for mainstream hits such as Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and A.G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.”

This year, several movies could get a boost from the Steak Eater vote. »
