“The Tunnels” is the untold true story of a great escape before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The story focuses on a group of West Germans trying to get their loved ones out of East Berlin, with the unlikely help of American news networks, who funded their expedition.

Despite the fact that the film itself is still some fifteen months away from release, Dark Knight fan site Batman-on-Film is reporting that the first ‘Batman heavy’ teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ready to go, and that we’ll be seeing it before the year is out…
According to the site: “The first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is being released on December 17, 2014. By the way Batman fans, I’ve heard that this teaser is ‘Batman heavy.'”

Production on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is showing no signs of slowing down, with recent reports surfacing that the crew is building a massive set in New Mexico, with shooting also slated to begin in Chicago next month. While it remains unclear when principal photography will actually be complete, a new report from Batman-on-Film claims that Warner Bros. already has a teaser trailer "ready to go."
The site's sources claim that the teaser will be attached to one of Warner Bros.' November or December releases, which could be one of four possibilities: Horrible Bosses 2 (November 26), Inherent Vice (December 12), The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies (December 17) or American Sniper (December 25, in limited release). While none of these are superhero titles, if word got out that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was attached to any one of these films, it would »
We already know a lot about the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, even despite Warner Bros’ stoic secrecy. It’s already one of the most anticipated, talked-about films currently in production, and it is exactly the kind of blockbuster that will make a fortune at the box office (possibly despite its quality).
However, while financial success is essentially a given, creative success is another question, and that’s what has fans both hardcore and casual alike curious. How will Dawn of Justice come together? Can it live up to Christopher Nolan’s popular Batman trilogy? Those are the key questions.
We know Henry Cavill is back as Clark Kent/Superman and that Amy Adams is back as Lois Lane as well. Diane Lane and Laurence Fishbourne are back also, resuming their roles from Man of Steel. And of course we know Ben Affleck has been »

There is a scene near the end of Birdman’s second act where Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton) delivers a brutal tirade against the idea of theater criticism. He talks about how safe the life of a critic is and how audacious it is of them to judge the work of actors. This puts me in a bit of a precarious place as a critic because these are words coming out of a strong character in a brilliantly executed film and they’re basically calling me an asshole if I have a problem with any of the performances in this film. Fortunately I have hardly any complaints about Birdman, acting or otherwise, and I can continue my life as a critic free from fear of the ire of Michael Keaton.

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.
The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie. »
Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.
Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”
So look out for Fisher »

I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a substantial portion of the year now, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do. SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in mind that it’s early and they’re completely subject to change. For example, I’ve hung back on some »

Join the fiesty discussion going on right now in our infamous message boards where Hollywood stars, directors, execs and other honchos hide behind cyber-nicknames. Sample comments below with links to those hot threads. See more here. -Break- Amy Adams and 'Big Eye's might be a 'bust' ibbster: More bad news for Amy from Jeff Sneider. Word on the street is Big Eyes is a bust and Amy Adams will be hard-pressed to land that Oscar nomination everyone assumes she will get. A Frustrated Everything: I refuse to accept this. They like Adams too much not to nominate her in this so-so year for Best Actress. Etchie: If Amy Adams in Big Eyes knows that she's not competitive even for a nomination, why not throw support and endorse instead her Bff Emily Blunt's 1st Oscar nomination bid for Into the Woods? Adams likewise played the same Baker's Wife role Summer 2012 @ Central Park NY. »
During an appearance at Atlanta’s Walker Stalker convention this past weekend, actor Jason Momoa reportedly spoke about his newly confirmed role as Aquaman in the expanding DC Comics cinematic universe.
According to Comicbook.com, Momoa explained the secrecy surrounding the role, telling fans, “Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet… I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone’s wishes. I’m really, really happy that I don’t have to be quiet anymore, because that’s really hard for me.”
On the subject of his rumored appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Momoa demurred, “I really wish I could say something, but I don’t even know… I found out some of the characters that are in ‘Justice League’ that are casted that I didn’t know. »

After being rumored to play Aquaman for almost a full year, Warner Bros. finally confirmed last week that Jason Momoa will in fact play the King of Atlantis in Justice League and his own stand-alone adventure. The actor made an appearance at Walker Con in Atlanta over the weekend, where he gave his first public comments about the role.
When asked about the level of secrecy involved in his casting, the actor said he tried to respect Warner Bros.' wishes to keep his casting a secret, but it was very hard for him to do so.
"Listen, I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you've just got to keep it quiet. You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone's wishes. I'm really, really happy that I don't have to be quiet anymore, »

Sneak Peek more from director Tim Burton's new dramatic feature "Big Eyes" based on the life of illustrator Walter Keane, an artist noted in the 1950's and 1960's for his 'kitsch' paintings of large-eyed waifs.
"...'Walter Keane' (Waltz) became a national celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950's after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, using his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret (Amy Adams), his shy wife.
"She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage, and when she tried to make it known that she authored the paintings, they ended up in a court battle..."

• "Visionary Director" would be so much more impressive as a description if it weren't so overused.
• The tag line is basic but it does cleverly have a double meaning with the last bit "... and everyone bought it"
• A lot of people seem to be sure that this one won't be a major Oscar player but apart from test screenings (a notoriously unreliable source of info) no one has seen it so it's one of our mystery movies when it »
