Today's Mppa ratings bulletin has at least one interesting title, that being William Monahan's Mojave, which stars Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund and is still not only without a release date, but without a distributor. At least now it has an R-rating, but not that's not likely going to help sell it. Next is Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, which won't be hitting theaters until August 14, 2015, but at least we can now confirm it has PG-13 rating. Ron Howard's In The Heart of the Sea, starring Chris Hemsworth, will be hitting theaters March 2015 and it too has a PG-13 rating, just as does the upcoming Left Behind feature starring Nicolas Cage, arriving in theaters this October 3. The complete bulletin is listed directly below, including a rating for Cymbeline, which stars Ethan Hawke and Milla Jovovich and recently played the Venice »

According to a new report from Batman News, some new teaser info for the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" super hero/action was revealed by actor, Henry Lennix (left), who played General Swanwick in the Man Of Steel and will be reprising that role in Dawn of Justice. In his statement, he implied that Dawn Of Justice will be reminiscent of "The Dark Knight Returns" movie by saying anyone who liked that one, we'll be pleased with Dawn Of Justice. When asked about any Batman V Superman scoops, Henry told the press: "Batman v Superman” … [Laughs] Well, no. Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel “The Dark Knight Returns,” I think will be well pleased by that. This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies of this scope and scale. I think you can depend on the acting — you’ve got Amy Adams, »
Back in July 2013, Man of Steel star Harry Lennix took to the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con International where he quoted lines from Frank Miller’s seminal comic book Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as part of the official announcement that Zack Snyder would be bringing the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight together for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, during an interview with Moviefone, Lennix has offered up a few words on the DC Comics ensemble, stating that fans of The Dark Knight Returns will be “well pleased” by the “historic event”…
“Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, I think will be well pleased by [Batman v Superman],” says Lennix, who will reprise the role of General Swanwick in the team-up. “This is a historic event.

Damon is managing a busy schedule in an attempt to find time to take the lead role in the Legendary Pictures movie.
The film will explore the mysterious origins of the historic structure. Cranston's role has not been revealed.
Legendary's Thomas Tull - who will produce the movie - has been attempting to get the feature made for several years.
The movie has been in the works for several years, with Edward Zwick once set to direct and Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker set to star. The project fell apart after Edward Zwick dropped out in September 2012, but it was revitalized once again in March when Chinese filmmaker Yimou Zhang signed on to direct.
No details have been given for Matt Damon and Bryan Cranston's characters. The plot revolves around how The Great Wall of China was built, and how it was constructed not to keep out the invading Mongol forces, but to stop an evil supernatural force from entering China.
According to Deadline, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston is in early discussions with Legendary to co-star in their upcoming epic, The Great Wall. No word on who the actor may be in line to portray, but today’s announcement comes hot on the heels of Saturday’s news that Matt Damon is in talks with Chinese director Zhang Yimou – inked to direct – for a role. Damon’s slate is already starting to get crowded, but the pair are reportedly trying to arrange a time in his busy schedule so he can snag the other lead.
Based on a script by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, the film will be produced by Thomas Tull, Charles Roven, Jon Jashni, Richard Suckle and Peter Loehr. In development for quite some time now, the project originally had Ed Zwick attached to direct. Man Of Steel Henry Cavill, True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgaard, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

The film has been in development for years with Ed Zwick (Glory) previously set to direct with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to play the leads. However, that plan crumbled, and Zwick eventually left to go direct Pawn Sacrifice, so Zhang Yimou (Hero) stepped in. The story—based on an idea by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery of why the Great Wall of China was built. You think it was to keep out the Mongolian hordes? You fool! It Is So Much More. It's also a tourist destination and a way for studios to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Damon is interested in working with Zhang, and the two almost got together on Flowers of War, but that film ultimately starred Christian Bale. Scheduling conflicts might get in the way »

Earlier this year it was reported that Oliver Stone would be directing a movie about whistleblower Edward Snowden, and now it appears he may have found his lead. Handsome dude Joseph Gordon-Levitt is being eyed to play the pale, bookish computer nerd in Stone's movie. Nothing is solid yet, but Jgl just wrapped "The Walk" with Robert Zemeckis and presumably has a free schedule ahead, and with Stone eyeing a December start for his movie, it could work out. But it's likely to be a film that will pack a powder keg of controversy, so we'll see if the actor will want to go along for the ride. [Deadline] With another Bourne movie brewing, though its status and when it might shoot are still unknown, Matt Damon is keeping an eye on other gigs. And right now he's taking a look at Zhang Yimou's "The Great Wall." The long-in-the works movie »

Zhang Yimou has signed on to direct the Chinese epic, reports Deadline.
The film will explore the mysterious origins of the historic structure.
Legendary's Thomas Tull - who will produce the movie - has been attempting to get it made for several years.
Damon will have to overcome a busy schedule to star in The Great Wall.
Aquaman, or more specifically Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, has been rumored to make at least a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for what feels like at least a year now. The real story might be Aquaman's role in that film's predecessor and Superman origin story, Man of Steel.
This rumor/report originated from the Meet the Movie Press podcast where The Wrap writer Jeff Sneider decided to share a juicy scoop he scored at the Toronto Film Festival. Apparently Sneider was attending a luncheon and sitting near a table with some Warner Bros. studio executives, and like any good journalist in that situation would do, he eavesdropped every possible word he could.
According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, there are some new,possible spoilers circulating about what Aquaman's appearance will be like in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick. Their source is Schmoes Know, and they say Aquaman's "going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz." They're also speculating that Aquaman may have played a part in getting Superman out of the ocean in Man Of Steel flick, stating: " Aquaman sent the whales to save Supes and make sure he was okay, which makes sense considering we never actually see how Supes gets back to shore in the film. He sees the whales and then it cuts to him walking on land, which could mean they were saving the swim back for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The movie currently stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent »
Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro's script deals with British soldiers traveling through 15th century China who witness the construction of the massive edifice that will one day be known as the Great Wall of China. They soon discover that its intended purpose is not to keep out human beings, but terrifying otherworldly creatures.
Attempts have been made to film the project for years now, with little to no success. The closest it came to filming was last year with the likes of Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to star and Ed Zwick to direct. That version fell apart though.
Damon previously was slated to work with Yimou on "The Flowers of War" in a role that eventually went to Christian Bale.

Bourne 5 isn't the only movie Matt Damon is interested in at the moment. He is also eyeing a role in the upcoming drama The Great Wall, which offers a history lesson on how and why the Great Wall of China was built.
The Great Wall was set to shoot last year, which would have given Legendary a foothold in the Chinese market. At that time, Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) was going to direct, with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker set to star, but the project fell apart.
Exclusive: While all the buzz this week about Matt Damon focused on Deadline’s reveal that he’ll reteam with Paul Greengrass in their third Bourne Identity film, there’s another very exotic international film that Damon is also flirting with. That is the lead role in The Great Wall, the Legendary Pictures film the great Chinese helmer Zhang Yimou signed on to direct. Legendary Pictures principal Thomas Tull has been trying to mount the China-set epic for several years now. Script is by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, but the most recent draft is by Tony Gilroy, who is familiar to Damon in that he scripted those terrific Bourne Identity films. The Great Wall was going to shoot last year and give Legendary a foothold into the China market, with Ed Zwick helming. While Zwick went as far as casting Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker, it just didn’t »

Night shoots continue on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week, where, for the past couple of evenings, director Zack Snyder has been filming the movie's epic chase sequence featuring the newly designed Batmobile. Today, we get a couple of videos from the set, which show off the pyrotechnic team's handiwork with two very loud explosions. It's not known if this is part of the chase, but that is very likely, and possibly involves the destroyed Gotham City Gas tanker truck seen in previous set photos. We also see manufactured rain and lightening, bringing that true Gotham feel to this DC Comics adventure.
Take a look, courtesy of All Entertainment News and Official Row:
#Rain and flashing lights that could only mean, #Thunder. Now this is starting to look more like #GothamCity. Thanks to @officialrow for sharing.

Despite his constant denials, many believe that Jason Momoa is still playing Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While this may not be confirmed until the movie is actually in theaters, Schmoes Know claim that the character will have a 'surfer' look in the movie. Which sounds like a no brainer conclusion if Jason Momoa is in fact taking on the role.
About the appearance of Aquaman, they state:
"He's going to look like a surfer essentially with tribal tattoos and all that jazz."
Anyone who has spent a lot of time looking at photos of Jason Momoa in his previous movies will note that most make him cover-up his tribal forearm tattoo. Aquaman's Surfer look actually plays into the actor's own style, and would allow him to finally show off this distracting ink on the big screen.
It is being speculated that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice »
