Rome – Venice topper Alberto Barbera has unveiled a promising lineup of fresh fare from around the world set to unspool at the 71st Venice Film Festival, with a rigorous focus on quality, discovery and diversity, likely to reveal some under-the-radar awards-season contenders and also bolster the Lido’s status as a global launching pad for prime auteur pics.

The robust U.S. contingent, largely from the indies, comprises new works from David Gordon Green, Andrew Niccol, Peter Bogdanovich, Lisa Cholodenko, Joe Dante, James Franco, Barry Levinson, Michael Almereyda, and Ami Canaan Mann.

As is customary at Venice, new works from name global auteurs, including Fatih Akin, Xavier Beauvois, Abel Ferrara, Andrei Konchalovsky, Shinya Tsukamoto, Amos Gitai, and Moshen Makhmalbaf, will play alongside pics by lesser-known helmers.

Details revealed about Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club 2 comic book

22 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Almost a year on from its official announcement at the New York Comic Con, USA Today has revealed details about author Chuck Palahniuk’s upcoming comic book sequel to his 1996 novel Fight Club, which was of course turned into a 1999 movie by David Fincher, with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton starring.

Entitled Fight Club 2, the 10-issue maxiseries is set for publication next year from Dark Horse Comics. According to the site, it “takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him”. Project Mayhem also returns, and “still has its hooks in the narrator as he has to save his boy when the youngster’s life is in peril. »

Chuck Palahniuk Talks About Tyler’s Return In Fight Club 2 Comic Book Series

22 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A year ago, Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk revealed that a sequel to his bruising 1996 satire was in the works – although in the form of a graphic novel. Now, in a move that breaks the first two rules of Fight Club, the heralded writer is speaking about the follow-up, in the wake of a Comic-Con panel with the adaptation’s director, David Fincher, on Sunday. Designed as a ten-issue comic book series, Fight Club 2 will feature the novel and film’s three main characters.

Set 10 years after the destructive events of the novel, Fight Club 2 will focus on the Narrator (who Edward Norton portrayed in Fincher’s film), who is now married to Marla Singer and has a nine-year-old son. Meanwhile, the Project Mayhem organization, which began wreaking havoc in Palahniuk’s novel, is still around and rears its head when the protagonist’s son is in peril. Also, the »

New Details and Artwork from Fight Club’s Upcoming Comic Book Sequel

22 July 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There has been a lot of talk about a Fight Club sequel, and the novel that David Fincher’s beloved 1999 movie was based on is about to get one…in comic book form! Chuck Palahniuk will release the 10-issue series in 2015 through Dark Horse Comics, and artist Cameron Stewart will join him.

Palahniuk will appear at the San Diego Comic-Con this weekend at a Fight Club panel alongside Fincher, so we’ll likely hear a lot more about the project then. However, the author has already revealed some details, including the fact that it will take place in both the future and the past.

To begin with, it picks up a decade after the ending of the original book, and the protagonist (played by Edward Norton in the movie) is now married to Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter) and has a 9-year-old son named Junior. However, the narrator is failing »

Second Look: Smashed, Buffalo Soldiers, Killing Them Softly And More (Episode 3)

22 July 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With so many films releasing each year, it’s impossible to catch them all. No matter how many movies you see, there are always a handful that manage to get by. You pledge to catch them at a later date, or maybe when they hit Blu-Ray, but we all know how it goes. You never get around to watching them and as more and more time passes, they get completely forgotten. It’s a shame, too, because there really are so many great movies that get overlooked each and every year and unfortunately, don’t achieve the mainstream success that they deserve.

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re hoping to remedy this problem by starting a new web show titled Second Look, where each week we’ll suggest several great movies that you might not have seen yet. On the last episode, we presented you with Haywire, The Bling Ring, »

Fight Club Gets Comic Book Sequel

22 July 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dark Horse Comics

Directly contravening the first two rules that he himself came up with, writer Chuck Palahniuk has been talking about carrying on the story of Fight Club next year. Not in the form of another book, however, or a big screen sequel from director David Fincher – nope, Fight Club 2 is going to be a comic book. Specifically, a 10-issue maxiseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart that Dark Horse will publish start in 2015. The story continues eighteen years after the book and – wait, Fight Club came out eighteen years ago? Boy, do we feel old now.

The press release, which came out ahead of the book’s official announcement at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend (Palahniuk accidentally leaked the news during a recent public appearance), says that the comic “takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, »

Mark Ruffalo on the foe Hulk needs for a stand-alone movie

21 July 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ever since The Avengers debuted two years ago, fans have been demanding: When is Mark Ruffalo going to get a stand-alone movie as the Hulk?

With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.

If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero—especially if we’re looking »

Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

21 July 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After two mildly successful cinematic outings in the form of Ang Lee’s Hulk (starring Eric Bana) and Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk (featuring Edward Norton), Marvel’s green rage monster seems to finally have some undeniable momentum, largely thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s well-received portrayal of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Due to his bromantic chemistry with Tony Stark and the smashing of a “puny god,” the character was viewed as one of the film’s highlights.

With newfound interest in the Hulk, there are many clamoring for a new solo film which would give Ruffalo a chance to carry an outing on his own (the actor has even said the Click to continue reading Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman is set to open the Venice Film Festival and now it will close the New York Film Festival, which means... will it go for all four fall film festsc Threec I have to admit, I'd be disappointed to learn Birdman was not playing Toronto, which will be announcing their line-up tomorrow, because I fully expect it to screen at Telluride. It will definitely be screening at either Telluride or Toronto given the fact the New York Film Festival announcement doesn't say it will be a North American premiere so with the world premiere at Venice, where will that North American premiere take placec Birdman, for those unfamiliar, is a black comedy that tells the story of an actor (Michael Keaton) - famous for portraying an iconic superhero - as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles »

The Always Outrageous Elaine Stritch Is Dead

17 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mark Kennedy, Associated Press

Jake Coyle, Associated Press

New York (AP) - Elaine Stritch, the brash theater performer whose gravelly, gin-laced voice and impeccable comic timing made her a Broadway legend, has died. She was 89.

Joseph Rosenthal, Stritch's longtime attorney, said the actress died Thursday of natural causes at her home in Birmingham, Michigan.

Although Stritch appeared in movies and on television, garnering three Emmys and finding new fans as Alec Baldwin's unforgiving mother on "30 Rock," she was best known for her stage work, particularly in her candid one-woman memoir, "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty," and in the Stephen Sondheim musical "Company."

A tart-tongued monument to New York show business endurance, Stritch worked well into her late 80s, most recently as Madame Armfeldt in a revival of Sondheim's musical "A Little Night Music." She replaced Angela Lansbury in 2010 to critical acclaim.

In 2013, Stritch - whose signature "no pants" style »

Don’t Turn Out The Light: Is David Fincher Still Afraid of the Dark?

16 July 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr on the work of David Fincher

‘I’m interested in films that scar’ February 96’ (Empire Magazine)

‘I’m not interested in the guy on his own, in a dark room sharpening his knives’ (Zodiac Commentary)

At the heart of David Fincher is a contradiction. Beneath his meticulous approach and need for perfection is a conflict of interest. With a history of visually striking music videos which often extend into short narrative films, Fincher’s unflinching focus on character and exploration of social agendas make him a true original. For someone defined in part by his use of darkness, that Fincher would feign indifference to those characters that exist within it is baffling. If we discount The Curious Case of Benjamin Button it becomes apparent that elsewhere, from Alien3 through to The Social Network, are pivotal characters with thematically dark undertones. So the question is, how can he be »

13 Actors Who Almost Played Superheroes

15 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.

I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »
