Written by Thomas, The Lost Boys series re-imagines the cult Joel Schumacher film, which… »

In (partial) defence of Fantastic Four

8 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One year after the release of the universally castigated superhero movie, Sean Wilson pops the question: is it really That bad?

Amidst a disappointing 2016 blockbuster movie season I’m struggling to identify any genuine underdog movies, ones that received their fare share of critical bile but which I actually liked. (Case in point: Suicide Squad, which has been near-universally hated and which I detested too.)

2015 however was slightly different. I can pinpoint at least three summer releases that I felt were unfairly treated: Tomorrowland, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and, most controversially, Fantastic Four. All of these movies tanked at the box office (Tomorrowland was considered a colossal live-action write-off for Disney) and received middling-to-poor reviews, slipping from the minds of most viewers whilst lingering in mine. True they are all considerably flawed but I can think of several, far more hateful 2015 releases that really got my back up. »

The Week in Spandex – Suicide Squad breaks records, DC fans take on Rotten Tomatoes, Avengers: Infinity War update, Spider-Man: Homecoming cameos, Deadpool 2, Gambit and more

6 August 2016 7:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In this edition of The Week in Spandex, we look at Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Batman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman Triumphant, Watchmen, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Marvel’s Most Wanted, Deadpool 2, Gambit, Legion and more…

The fifth superhero – or in this case supervillain – movie of 2016 opened this week as Warner Bros. unleashed the latest chapter of the DC Extended Universe, Suicide Squad. And, much like the previous chapter, it didn’t go down to well with critics, with the David Ayer-directed ensemble sitting on 26% at Rotten Tomatoes (which rather hilariously led to an online petition to close Rt down seeing as critics around the world don’t seem to like DC movies these days). Reviews here at Flickering Myth have been mixed: Ricky Church »

Remember when Courtney Love nearly played Harley Quinn in the sequel to Batman & Robin?

5 August 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Margot Robbie getting praise for her performance as Harley Quinn, Luke Owen looks back at what could have been the character’s first on-screen appearance…

Following the box office success of Batman Forever and the impressive dailies for Batman & Robin, it was announced in February 1997 that Joel Schumacher would be returning to direct the fifth movie in the franchise. Joining him on this adventure would be screenwriter Mark Protosevich, who had previously written the script for Batman & Robin as well as one of Warner Bros.’ many attempts to adapt I Am Legend. “A few months ago, there were twelve movies being shot on the Warner Bros. lot, and [Warner Bros. executives] Bob Daly and Terry Semel asked to see a sample reel of each film,” Schumacher said at the time. “Each director put together dailies from the film. After Bob and Terry saw ours, they ordered another script for Batman.”

For Protosevich, »

Newswire: That Flatliners remake is actually a sequel, will still star Kiefer Sutherland

1 August 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s been about five years since Sony announced its plans to remake Joel Schumacher’s psychological horror flick Flatliners, during which time you could be forgiven for thinking it was just another proffered remake that would ultimately collect dust on some producer’s shelf. But the project began to show new signs of life last fall, when Ellen Page was cast as one of the medical students whose experimentation with life and death isn’t an official part of the curriculum. Page was soon joined by Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, and Kiersey Clemons in the proposed blatant disregard for institutional review boards.

The remake got a little more cachet when erstwhile flatliner Kiefer Sutherland boarded the film early last month. His role wasn’t disclosed at the time, probably to leave room for the possibility that he was a ghost all along. Don’t worry, we haven’t spoiled »

New "Flatliners" Is A Sequel, Not A Remake

30 July 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

We already know that at least one of the key cast members from the original 1990 hit thriller "Flatliners" is coming back for Sony Pictures' upcoming remake - Kiefer Sutherland.

Today Sutherland has confirmed a suspected theory - that the film is not a remake but rather a sequel with him playing the same character of Nelson Wright. Speaking with Metro, he explained how the movie isn't so quick to reveal itself as taking place in the same universe as the original:

"I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I'm the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I've done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film... I loved making the first film and when I was asked if »

Flatliners Remake Is a Sequel Says Kiefer Sutherland

30 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's true. Kiefer Sutherland has confirmed what many suspected the moment he signed on for Sony's upcoming Flatliners 'remake'. It will actually be a sequel to his original 1990 hit thriller. And he is playing the same character, though that is never specifically stated in the story itself. Instead, it is heavily implied.

Kiefer Sutherland says he will be back to play former medical student Nelson Wright a second time in what will essentially be a Flatliners reboot that turns this cult favorite into a franchise for a new audience. Speaking with Metro, he explained how the movie isn't so quick to reveal itself as taking place in the same universe as the original. But before things get really bad, original audiences will get the gist quite quickly that Nelson is back, tampering with the undead in ways he perhaps shouldn't be.

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Flatliners set pics picture Nina Dobrev and Diego Luna

Flatliners set pics: Remake of the 1990 movie about medical students who take themselves to the brink of death appear online

The Flatliners set pics show Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev shooting.

It has only just started shooting, but there are already some Flatliners set pics hitting the net. Based on the 1990 movie of the same name which starred Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts, Flatliners revolves around a group of medical students who begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights.

The original was directed by Joel Schumacher, though the in-production remake is being helmed by Niels Arden Oplev, the filmmaker responsible for the original version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Noomi Rapace.

Ben Ripley, who wrote Source Code, is penning the screenplay for the redo.

Here’s the plot synopsis for the original.

Return to Santa Carla, California with ‘The Lost Boys’ Sequel Comic

19 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s a little surprising we haven’t heard about a remake of The Lost Boys yet. We’ve seen two direct-to-dvd sequels to the film (both starring Corey Feldman), but Joel Schumacher‘s vampire film is certainly well known enough to make someone see dollar signs in a potential update. Before that inevitable day comes, Vertigo Comics is bringing us […]

DVD Review – Forsaken (2016)

18 July 2016 10:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Forsaken, 2016

Directed by Jon Cassar.

Starring Kiefer Sutherland, Donald Sutherland, Demi Moore, Michael Wincott, Greg Ellis and Brian Cox.

Synopsis:

In the Old West, former Civil War-veteran John Henry returns to his frontier hometown where he must repair a fractious relationship with his Reverend father, and face the demons of his past when a gang of outlaws threaten the community…

Not just a throwback to the Western of old, Forsaken is a film born of historical connections. Directed by Jon Cassar, who worked with Kiefer Sutherland on the series that made him iconic, 24, and starring Kiefer alongside his legendary father Donald Sutherland, something they’ve only briefly done before – sharing screen time in the little known Max Dugan Returns in the early 80’s and appearing not together in Joel Schumacher’s A Time to Kill in 1996. For them, the appeal was appearing not just together but as father and son on screen, »

Vertigo to publish six-issue sequel to The Lost Boys

18 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vertigo has announced that it is set to publish a six-issue limited series sequel to Joel Schumacher’s 1987 cult classic The Lost Boys from the creative team of Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Scott Godlewski & Patricia Mulvihill (The Dark & The Bloody) and Tony Moore (Shade).

“I saw The Lost Boys at a formative time in my life, when a VHS, a Vcr and a summer afternoon were a perfect escape into a crazy world of biker vampires with mullets and monster-fighting hippy grandpas,” Seeley tells Variety. “The Lost Boys was one of my entry points into the horror genre, and I’ve been fascinated ever since. Getting the chance to write a sequel to the film, featuring the original characters, and getting to work with Scott, Patricia and Tony is truly a high point in my comic book-making career.”

'The Lost Boys' is, hopefully, getting the (comic-book) sequel it deserves

15 July 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Lost Boys was a landmark of ‘80s horror, released at a time when the two Coreys were forces to be reckoned with at the box office and big hair was the name of the game. Despite bringing in $32 million at the box office on a budget of $8.5 million, a sequel didn’t emerge until 2008, when the direct-to-dvd followup The Lost Boys: The Tribe (starring original cast member Corey Feldman, with a cameo by the late Corey Haim) was released to withering reviews but impressive numbers, with nearly $6 million in sales for Warner Premiere. That was followed by 2010’s The Lost Boys: The Thirst, also starring Feldman. Here’s the thing: I doubt many fans of the first movie consider the two direct-to-dvd followups to be worthy successors to the Joel Schumacher-directed original, which was critically well-received at the time and remains a beloved title to this day.

Newswire: The Lost Boys gets another sequel, this one in comic form

15 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

How do you make a sequel to a movie about teenagers staying eternally young and perfect, when the actual, corporeal stars of the film demonstrably (and, in a few cases, tragically) have not? If the movie in question is The Lost Boys, the answer is to hop mediums, apparently, over to the gentle, age-forgiving world of comics. That’s per Variety, which is reporting that Joel Schumacher’s 1987 film—which centers on a young man trying to prevent his brother from getting seduced into undeath by local blood-drinking bad boy Kiefer Sutherland—is getting the ol’ comic book sequel treatment.

The new Lost Boys—not, repeat, not to be confused with Alan Moore’s Lost Girls, lest any number of ’80s nostalgics get accidentally placed on an FBI watch list—is being handled by D.C.’s Vertigo imprint. The miniseries will reunite brothers Michael and Sam Emerson (originally ...

The Lost Boys Is Getting a Comic Book Sequel

14 July 2016 4:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truth, justice and the American way prevail! It seems we're getting a true Lost Boys 2, only in the form of a comic. 30 years removed from the release of the original cult classic, this is perhaps the only way to go, especially since one of the main stars has long since drifted into the chilly night air of Santa Carla. The Lost Boys sequel comic will pick up where we last left Sam, Mike, his mother and their vampire fighting Grandpa.

There's no denying that The Lost Boys is an 80s cult classic that has a legion of fans. But the franchise hasn't exactly faired well over the past few decades. The movie was supposed to get a true sequel heading into the 90s, which never happened. It would have revolved around an all-girl vampire coven, and may have just been too far ahead of its time. It wasn't until 2008 that »
