The Lego Batman Movie is set for release on February 10th 2017 and sees Will Arnett joined in the voice cast by Michael Cera (Superbad) as Robin, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Batgirl, »

Lego Batman Movie Gets Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face

30 November 2016 1:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in November 2014, months after The Lego Movie became a surprise box office blockbuster, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed that the spin-off they're producing, The Lego Batman Movie, will acknowledge "every era of Batman filmmaking." It seems that the producers, and director Chris McKay have done their Batman homework, as it were, with the director announcing on social media that none other than Billy Dee Williams will provide the voice for the iconic villain Two-Face, a.k.a. Harvey Dent. Die-hard fans of the Batman movie franchise will know that this rights a cinematic wrong set in motion more than 25 years ago.

Director Chris McKay revealed the news on Twitter today, when asked by a fan if Billy Dee Williams will voice Two-Face. Billy Dee Williams previously played Harvey Dent in Tim Burton's 1989 movie Batman, but he never got the chance to transform into the villainous Two-Face. »

Sundance Film Festival Unveils 2017 Competition, Next Lineups

30 November 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

These may be turbulent times for the country, but as sure as the sun rises tomorrow, the 33rd edition of the Sundance Film Festival brings tales of dysfunctional families, college hazing, and soldiers coping with Gulf War trauma, as well as new work from such independent film stalwarts as Parker Posey, Michael Cera, and Elizabeth Olsen.

And yet, if such offerings sound familiar, think again, as Sundance director John Cooper and director of programming Trevor Groth insist that the 2017 lineup for the festival’s four juried categories — American and World narrative, and documentary competitions — as well as Next, includes a wealth of new voices, one-of-a-kind portraits of never-before-seen characters, and fresh spins on mainstream genres.

This year, the most intense segment of the selection process occurred at the very moment Americans were focused on the election. “While that was going on in the outside world, we were watching films showing the other side — an intimate, more personal side of people’s lives,” Cooper told Variety. “In the end, it gives me great encouragement and optimism, even with everything happening out there. The work we’re seeing this year adds so much dimension. It’s really the human side. Giving the whole story of who we are is really important to the world.”

The festival’s U.S. dramatic competition comprises 16 films, eight of them debut features, including Matt Spicer’s social-media stalker comedy “Ingrid Goes West,” in which Aubrey Plaza’s character is obsessed with the aforementioned Olsen »

Billy Dee Williams Will Finally Get The Chance To Play Two-Face In The Lego Batman Movie

30 November 2016 12:02 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's been nearly thirty years since Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) played Harvey Dent in the classic Batman movie released in 1989, but The Lego Batman Movie director Chris McKay has now confirmed that he'll get to reprise the role in the upcoming animated feature. Details on how significant his role will be here haven't been revealed, but this is a very cool move by Warner Bros.  After appearing as Dent in the Tim Burton helmed Batman, Williams was replaced by Tommy Lee Jones when director Joel Schumacher took over for Batman Forever in 1995. As a result, he never got the chance to deliver his take on Two-Face, so it will be fun getting to see (hear?) what he does here. Starring Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson and Zach GalifianakisThe Lego Batman Movie will be in cinemas worldwide on February 10th, 2017. Let us know your thoughts on this news below. »

Billy Dee Williams voicing Two-Face in The Lego Batman Movie

30 November 2016 9:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He may not have got to play Harvey Dent’s evil alter-ego in a sequel to Tim Burton’s Batman, but Billy Dee Williams is finally set to portray Two-Face on the big screen next year, with director Chris McKay revealing on Twitter that he’s lending his voice to the villain in February’s The Lego Batman Movie!

He does https://t.co/sf1x4NtRzS

Chris McKay (@buddboetticher) November 30, 2016

Having played District Attorney Harvey Dent in 1989’s Batman, Billy Dee was slated to return in Batman Returns, where he would have appeared in the Max Shreck role and suffered his facial scarring during the finale courtesy of Catwoman, which would have set him up as the main villain for the third movie. As it happens, Two-Face did appear in Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever, although the role was ultimately recast, with Tommy Lee Jones replacing Williams.

‘Drunk History’ and ‘Hamilton’: Derek Waters on Getting Lin-Manuel Miranda Loaded for Comedy Central

29 November 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While Lin-Manuel Miranda has won a Pulitzer Prize and is now on the verge of an Egot, it’s unlikely that his appearance on Comedy Central’s “Drunk History” will win him any awards. Except, that is, if our hearts count as trophies.

For, even in a year packed with what can only be unimaginable, life-changing experiences, the 35-year-old multi-hyphenate is having a bit of a moment right now. If you went to the movies last weekend, you may have one of the songs he co-wrote for Disney’s “Moana” stuck in your head. And he’s also joined an elite circle of people whose lives have been forever bettered by direct interaction with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, cameoing in videos for The Rock’s official YouTube channel.

Our devotion to Twin Peaks in the last 25 years

14 November 2016 12:21 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The words “Who killed Laura Palmer?” have been on everybody’s lips for the past three decades and now it’s time they came back. Twin Peaks (Tp) is possibly the TV series with the biggest cult following of all time. Directed by David Lynch, the show never failed to deliver in unexpected twists and turns and captivated the imagination of many during the early 1990s.

The TV show was groundbreaking for its time and many would argue that we’ve never seen the likes of such a show since. Bearing in mind that it was created in a time where the TV show culture that we all know and love today was nonexistent, Twin Peaks did well to create such a buzz around one very unusual and haunting piece of television.

The new season promises a star-studded cast, with the likes of Michael Cera (Arrested Development), David Duchovny (X-Files »
