‘Gotham’ Season 4 Extended Trailer Goes Full ‘Dark Knight’ — Watch

19 September 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Get ready to catch the Bat-light this Thursday, as “Gotham” returns for its Season 4, subtitled “A Dark Knight.” Judging by the new extended trailer that Fox released on Monday, it looks like it is going to be a very wild ride.

The “dark band” trailer (approved for “Gotham citizens ready for a Dark Knight”) reminds us of last season’s craziness by featuring some of the most important moments, but it leads into even more craziness as more and more villains join the ranks to disturb the already-damaged stability of Gotham City.

The most notable villain to be introduced this season is Scarecrow, whose interaction with Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is spotlighted more in this trailer than the one released during Comic-Con in July.

Heroes to zeroes: the Batman and Superman movies that never were

19 September 2017 2:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Thanks to the current trend for ‘what if’ comic-book flicks, abandoned concepts from Tim Burton and Darren Aronofsky now look far less bizarre

Hollywood history is littered with the corpses of unmade superhero movies, destined only ever to be mentioned when a franchise slips into decay and is looking for a fresh way to breathe life into Superman, Batman, Spider-Man or whichever masked titan has currently hit the skids. And so it is perhaps inevitable this week that we are once again locked in the DC mortuary, staring at what might have been if Tim Burton and Darren Aronofsky had been allowed to pursue their respective superhero visions in what now seems like another era entirely.

Few would argue that either the caped crusader or the man of steel is currently top of the DC tree, following the meat-headed, convoluted mess that was last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. »

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix To Be His Batman

18 September 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, Darren Aronofsky‘s fever dream “mother!” landed in theaters and fell on its face, commercially speaking, but there’s no doubt that the film has already achieved cult status. However, there’s an alternate timeline where instead of making of blazing, challenging arthouse fare for the multiplex, Aronofsky is a blockbuster filmmaker.

Somewhere between Joel Schumacher‘s franchise-killing “Batman & Robin,” and Christopher Nolan‘s reboot with “Batman Begins,” Warner Bros.

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix to Star in His Batman Movie, Which Was Too Dark to Get Made

17 September 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With everyone who’s actually seen “mother!” — which, as reflected by its “F” CinemaScore, wasn’t too many people — arguing what Darren Aronofsky’s new movie is actually about, the writer/director himself is reflecting on the film he never got to make. Aronofsky was in talks to direct a new “Batman” movie before the role eventually went to Christopher Nolan, and now he’s revealed who he wanted to play the Caped Crusader: Joaquin Phoenix.

“I always wanted Joaquin Phoenix for Batman,” he said to Yahoo! Movies. “It’s funny, I think we were just sort of out of time with our idea.

Darren Aronofsky Wanted Joaquin Phoenix as Batman in Year One

16 September 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The history of Batman on screen is an interesting one, with many various iterations of the character having appeared in various versions of the franchise. However, perhaps just as compelling as what we have seen in Batman movies is what we never got to see. For example, Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan) had a pitch for a Batman: Year One movie at one point. And who did he want to play the Caped Crusader? Joaquin Phoenix.

Much has been made of Darren Aronofsky's Batman: Year One movie that never was over the years, but this is the first we've heard of the director wanting to cast Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role. Aronofsky made the reveal while speaking to Yahoo Movies in order to promote his new movie, Mother! Here's what he had to say about it.

Joaquin Phoenix Would Have Starred in Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One

15 September 2017 5:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’ve been many scrapped Batman movies over the years, but one of the most fascinating is Darren Aronofsky’s Batman: Year One

Loosely based on Frank Miller’s seminal comic book, the film would have told a radically different origin story for the Dark Knight than what we’re used to. Notable elements include depicting Bruce Wayne as a street punk with hockey pads and a baton and Alfred the butler being recast as a young African-American car mechanic.

While promoting his latest effort, Jennifer Lawrence vehicle mother!, Aronofsky revealed some new interesting details on what he would have done with the Caped Crusader. It turns out he even had a specific actor in mind to play the part.

“I always wanted Joaquin Phoenix for Batman,” said the director.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Phoenix has been linked with a superhero role. We’ve previously seen »

10 Actors Who Were Almost in Doctor Strange

14 September 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was a beautiful validation for comic book fans everywhere when the Marvel Cinematic Universe grew so unstoppable that some of the trippiest and hardest-to-adapt characters were finally able to star in their own franchises, with A-list actors to boot. None have been weirder than Doctor Strange. And now, It's hard to imagine anyone other than Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, who Steve Ditko and Stan Lee introduced in the pages of Strange Tales back in the summer of 1963. But things could have turned out a lot different.

As things got cooking for Marvel's Phase 3, there were a slew of big name actors in contention for the magical role of Doctor Stephen Strange. And a few A listers came very close to signing that contract. As Marvel puts it, Benedict Cumberbatch was always the first choice. But we're not so sure about that, as one particular »

10 Actors Who Rejected Marvel Superhero Roles

11 September 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel movies are big business, from the Avengers franchise and all of the interconnected heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on screens both big and small, to Fox's ever-expanding world of the X-Men and Deadpool, to the Sony steered Spider-man movies, going all the way back to Sam Raimi's original trilogy. But that doesn't mean every big name actor and A list talent in Hollywood wants to be associated with these characters. Some heavyweight actors have straight up said no way when Marvel came knocking. So, who would do such a thing?

Since becoming its own studio, which was later acquired by Disney in one of the biggest studio deals this side of Lucasfilm, Marvel has had no problem attracting top-tier A-list talent to its roster; the talent who commands major ticket grosses and critical acclaim alike. Who doesn't want to suit up as a one of Marvel's Merry Mutants, »

Joaquin Phoenix Reveals He’s Living with Girlfriend Rooney Mara

7 September 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara have taken their romance to the next level.

The couple — who have remained mostly out of the spotlight since they fell in love on the set of their upcoming movie Mary Magdalene — are now living together in the Hollywood Hills, Phoenix revealed in a new interview with The New York Times published Wednesday.

While the 42-year-old actor remained coy about how long the two have been shacking up, he did open up about their life at home, which is remarkably simple compared to what fans might expect from two A-List stars.

According to Phoenix, he’s usually asleep by 9 p. »

BFI London Film Festival’s Official Competition Is 33 Percent Women-Directed

31 August 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Angels Wear White”: 22 Hours Films

Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women” took home top honors at the BFI London Film Festival last year, but the ensemble drama was one of just two women-directed films that screened in the 12-title Official Competition program, which amounted to 17 percent of the lineup. The fest has just announced its first crop of films for its 2017 edition, and this year’s Official Competition slate is considerably more female-friendly. Of 12 films in the 2017 Competition lineup, four are directed or co-directed by women, an encouraging 33 percent — nearly double the percentage from last year.

Films screening in Official Competition include Vivian Qu’s “Angels Wear White,” a drama that centers on two school girls who are assaulted by a middle-aged man, and Annemarie Jacir’s “Wajib,” a dramedy about a father and estranged son that has been chosen to represent Palestine at the 2018 Oscars in the foreign-language category.

The Documentary Competition also features a high number of women-directed films. Five of 12 features in the lineup are directed by women — about 42 percent of the program. Last year women directed or co-directed 50 percent of the films featured in this slate. Among the films screening this year are Elvira Lind’s award-winning portrait of an American dancer, “Bobbi Jene,” and Maryam Goormaghtigh’s “Before Summer Ends,” a road trip movie that follows three Iranian expats traveling around France.

Unfortunately the Gala program includes far fewer titles helmed by women. Of 20 films screening in this high-profile category, only three are directed or co-directed by women, a total of 15 percent of the lineup: Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s tennis comedy “Battle of the Sexes,” Dee Rees’ drama about rival families set in post–World War II South, “Mudbound,” and Lynne Ramsay’s Joaquin Phoenix vigilante drama “You Were Never Really Here.” Women directed only 15 percent of last year’s Gala films, as well.

The BFI London Film Festival runs October 4–15. Check out the women-directed and co-directed films screening below. List adapted from Deadline.

‘Cocote’ Trailer: Unnerving Locarno Award Winner Follows Man Pushed to Religious Extremes — Watch

31 August 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After winning the top prize at this year’s Locarno International Film Festival’s Signs of Life sidebar section (a program dedicated to “investigating experimental forms of narration and innovations in film language”), Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias’ “Cocote” will next hit Tiff’s similarly ambitious Wavelengths section later this month. Bundled up in a surprisingly staid plot — a man returns home to help bury his father, and family dramas come to a head — is a bold and unnerving drama about personal choice and religious power.

Per the film’s official synopsis, it “is the story of Alberto, an evangelical gardener, returns to his hometown to attend his father’s funeral, killed by an influential man. To mourn the deceased, he is forced to participate in religion celebrations that are contrary to his will and beliefs.”

In our exclusive new trailer, that story is at the fore, but so »

Trailer Watch: Joaquin Phoenix Is a Vigilante in Lynne Ramsay’s “You Were Never Really Here”

31 August 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

You Were Never Really Here

Not much is known about Joe (Joaquin Phoenix), the protagonist of Lynne Ramsay’s Cannes-winning thriller, “You Were Never Really Here.” He doesn’t answer when a client asks if he has kids. A woman inquires about how he spends his time — again, no answer. The only thing the audience can be sure of is that Joe’s work involves illegal — but possibly righteous — acts of violence.

That’s what State Senator Votto (Alex Manette) is counting on, anyway. He hires Joe to find and retrieve his missing daughter, Nina (Ekaterina Samsonov), who is apparently the victim of sex trafficking. “McCleary said you were brutal,” Votto mentions, referring to Joe’s boss. “I can be,” Joe replies.

Ramsay took home the Best Screenplay prize at Cannes this year for her work on “You Were Never Really Here.” The director’s previous films include We Need to Talk About Kevin” and “Ratcatcher.”

Check out the international trailer (with French subtitles) for “You Were Never Really Here” below. It’s being released November 8 as “A Beautiful Day” in Europe. No word on a U.S. premiere yet.
