Kevin Smith Debuts 85-Pound Weight Loss -- See His Transformation!

30 June 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Kevin Smith ... is that you?! The 44-year-old star took to Twitter to reveal his impressive 85-pound weight loss by sharing before-and-after photos of his achievement. "Left: me & my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later. I shan't wear pants and will never abort the shorts," he tweeted with the pics, where he's seen posing with his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Smith kicked off his weight-loss plan after he was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for being too large for a single seat back in 2010. Smith opened up to Men's Health earlier this year, saying he dropped 40 pounds by cutting out sugar. "I can't even walk down the drinks aisle at a food store anymore because all of it is just sugar water," he told the mag. "There's nothing there that's not sugar water. I used to be a guy that was like, 'Yeah, I drink juice, man, and juice is natural. »

Kevin Smith Debuts 85-Pound Weight Loss! See His Skinny Body Transformation

29 June 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kevin Smith is looking a lot skinnier these days! The 44-year-old director has been on a mission to drop the pounds the last few months. Smith took to Twitter today to reveal just how much weight he's lost. "Left: me & my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later. I shan't wear pants and will never abort the shorts," Smith wrote with a photo split of him at his heaviest and him today. Smith looks like half the man he used to be in the new photos. Smith looks much more slender while sporting denim shorts and a black sports coat. Although he's physically changed a lot, Smith won't give up those baggy jean shorts! Back in February, after losing 40 pounds, Smith opened up to »

Comic Con 2015: What We Know

27 June 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, just before the Comic-Con schedule was announced, I tried to predict some of the big surprises that the studios would spring on us in San Diego. As it turns out, I was actually right about a few of them (the first Mad Max: Fury Road trailer, first look at Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), but there were so many more, like Legendary announcing Godzilla 2 and Kong: Skull Island, Bruce Campbell returning for Ash Vs. Evil Dead and Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" performance. With the con just a few weeks away, the official schedule is starting to roll out, day by day, with some big stuff happening in Hall H. Of course, many studios started announcing their panels weeks ahead of time, but now, the "big picture," as it were, is starting to come together. Although this Con picture is much different than years past. »

Comic-Con 2015 Schedule for Friday, July 10th

26 June 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the unveiling of the lineup for Preview Night and Thursday, Comic-Con has released their schedule for Friday, July 10th, and it's supremely underwhelming. Save for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel late in the day, there's really nothing "must-see" in Hall H. The Game of Thrones panel is lacking some of the show's biggest stars, including Peter DinklageLena Heady, and Kit Harington or even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and the Hall H festivities close out with a look at Kevin Smith's new film Yoga Hosers. This is a far cry from the Friday Hall H lineup just a few years ago, and the lack of Disney, Paramount, and Sony is certainly showing. All the "good stuff" (save for Star Wars) seems like it's being relegated to Saturday. Rather than post the entire schedule, we’ve pulled out highlights for the biggest panels »

Production Begins On Todd Solondz’s ‘Wiener-Dog’; Full Cast Includes Brie Larson, Zosia Mamet & More

24 June 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Indie filmmaker Todd Solondz loves to play within his own cinematic universe ala Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino. 2009’s “Life During Wartime” is a quasi sequel to 1998’s “Happiness” and 2004's "Palindromes" begins at the funeral for Dawn Wiener, the protagonist from his debut feature “Welcome to the Dollhouse.” Well, Solondz is either ignoring his own cannon or just changing history with “Wiener-Dog,” his upcoming Annapurna Pictures comedy. The movie stars Greta Gerwig as the aforementioned Dawn Wiener grown up and the comedy tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading comfort and joy Principal photography has begun on “Wiener-Dog,” and Annapurna has revealed its cast which includes the previously in-talks Julie Delpy, plus Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and writer/actor Tracy Letts.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

15 June 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Director Ryan Unicomb is heading to the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney later this week to shoot preliminary scenes for his proposed documentary on George Miller.s Justice League Mortal.

Unicomb plans to film interviews with comic book artists on the enduring cultural influences of the superhero characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Green Lantern, that would have featured in Miller.s movie.

In 2008, Warner Bros. pulled the plug on Justice League Mortal, which the director wanted to shoot in Australia, after the Film Finance Corporation ruled it wasn.t eligible for the then-new 40% producer offset.

Since If broke the news on the feature doc, working title Miller.s Justice League Mortal, the story went global, reported in around 200 media outlets.

Unicomb is working with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell (with whom he collaborated last year on Gifted, a short he co-directed with Jordan Bailey »

Here Are 15 Actors That Were Almost Cast as Superman

12 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Did you know that June 12 every year is Superman Day? We're not sure how this particular day came to be dedicated to the Man of Steel, especially since he seems omnipresent in our lives every day. A pop cultural mainstay since 1938, the Krypton-born hero never seems far away, especially in the movies.

Yet while it seems every boy has dreamed of putting on the red cape and flying, the character has been remarkably hard to cast in movies. For every Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh or Henry Cavill who said yes, many more have said no. Here are 15 potential Kal-El's that never came to be.

1. Sylvester Stallone

"Yo, Lois!" After the success of "Rocky," it's no wonder that "Superman: The Movie" producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind considered Stallone to play the Last Son of Krypton. Reportedly, he was deemed too ethnic for the part, though other sources have said that Marlon Brando »

Tusk DVD Review

9 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kevin Smith

Cast: Justin Long, Michael Parks, Hayley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Johnny Depp

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 102 minutes

Special Features: Director’s commentary with Kevin Smith / Animated podcast

Kevin Smith loves his podcasts. The director publishes weekly casts via his channel ‘SModcast’ and without it Tusk would never have ben written. The idea for the film came up during an episode titled ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter‘ wherein the director discussed an ad he’d read in a newspaper. The story in particular involved a man seeking a lodger who could live with him rent free in exchange wearing a walrus costume for a period of times.

Although later revealed as a being a hoax ad, it did however get the creative juices flowing, birthing the film idea. Tusk has Justin Long star as Wallace, a co-host of a frat-boy aimed podcast ‘The Not-See Party’, who whilst researching »

“And I want some ‘ha ha ha’s here…”

For our June edition, The Flickering Myth Movie Show decided to visit London McM Comic Con. Because we can. And we’re slightly (ok, very) obsessed with Willa Holland (Thea Queen from Arrow).

Not only did we get a chance to talk to her…we also chased down Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Iain de Caestecker (Leo Fitz) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), the director and producer duo of The Death of Superman Lives! What Happened? Jon Schnepp and Holly Payne and super YouTuber Tomska.

But Wait – There’S More!

Like, ‘Faust from ItsSuperEffective’ more, talking comic books, Captain America: Civil War and hipster Joker from Suicide Squad; ‘James Tarpey from Robot Overlords‘ more, picking his movies of the month (there’s lots of Jurassic World chat) and working with Gillian Anderson; and, finally, ‘MusicalBethan’ more, doing that cup thing from Pitch Perfect. »

WB Will do for Stephen King's 'The Stand' What HBO Should've Done with 'Game of Thrones'

5 June 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Wrap is reporting Warner Bros. and CBS Films are in talks with Showtime to mount one hell of an interesting deal with regards to the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's massive, post-apocalyptic tome "The Stand". Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) was brought on board to write and direct an adaptation of King's novel back in February 2014. He was the latest in a long line of filmmakers that had taken a crack at "The Stand" including David Yates, Ben Affleck and Scott Cooper and it appears he's going to be sticking around and in a big way. When we last heard from Boone on the project he said, "We're going to do four movies and we're going to do 'The Stand' at the highest level you can do it at, with a cast that's going to blow people's minds. We've already been talking to lots of people, »
