Interview with Batman: Assault on Arkham’s Creative Team

30 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As part of celebrating 75 Years of Batman, Assault on Arkham is primed to bring some of Batman’s most well-known villains into the spotlight. We were lucky enough to sit down with many of the folks responsible for bringing this newest animated feature to life and they’ve given us a glimpse into what we can expect to see next month.

First, if you weren’t aware this Batman film will take place in the same Bat-Universe as the stellar Rocksteady video games. Assault on Arkham unfolds between the end of Arkham Origins and the beginning of Arkham Asylum. They wouldn’t go into specifics of where in that time period it does fall, but it is certain that fan-favorite Kevin Conroy has returned to voice the Caped Crusader. In previous interviews about Arkham Origins, the developers stated that Kevin Conroy not being the voice of Batman in that game »

TV News: Sleepy, Cuckoo, Westworld, Simpsons

21 July 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sleepy Hollow

Speaking at the TCA's this week, the producers of Fox's supernatural procedural hit "Sleepy Hollow" say they don't plan to shake-up the successful formula anytime soon. For starters, the Abbie and Crane relationship won't devolve into flirting/underlying sexual tension for a good while as yet.

Producer Len Wiseman says: "[Abbie and Ichabod] have a respect for each other. We're really not playing their relationship on the romantic side". The expanded second season will also boast new villains including the Pied Piper, a Succubus and a Wendigo. Timothy Busfield will guest star as Benjamin Franklin, while Sakina Jaffrey will play no-nonsense Sheriff Leena Reyes. [Source: The Live Feed]

Cuckoo

"Twilight" hunk Taylor Lautner tries something very different in the upcoming second season of BBC3's comedy series "Cuckoo". Lautner takes on the role of the hippie son of Andy Samberg's character from the first season, and the network has just launched the first trailer today. »

20 July 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If you think the next new episode of The Simpsons will be casualty-free, you’ve made a grave mistake: The anticipated installment that features the death of a familiar face has been slated as the season 26 premiere. Speaking to EW last fall, executive producer Al Jean promised viewers “an emotional story” and dropped just a few hints about who will wind up pushing daisies. One, the actor who voiced this character claimed an Emmy for his/her performance in the role, and two, the character has appeared in more than two episodes.

Transformers: Age of Extinction heading to $900 million worldwide

20 July 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have lost top spot at the box office to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction has pushed its worldwide haul to a whopping $886 million this weekend, further extending its lead as the highest-grossing movie of the year as well as surpassing the $709. million of the original Transformers and the $836.3 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. A billion looks all but assured for Age of Extinction, while the franchise high of $1.123 billion set by Transformers: Dark of the Moon is certainly an achievable target.

Transformers: Age of Extinction sees Michael Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

Transformers: Age of Extinction becomes the highest-grossing movie of 2014

13 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, X-Men: Days of Future Past’s stay as the biggest earner of the year didn’t last long, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction shrugging aside almost universal negative reviews to become the highest-grossing movie of 2014 so far, with a whopping $752 million worldwide just three weekends after its release. The fourth instalment in the Hasbro franchise looks set to become the first (and only?) release of the year to crack a billion – although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies may have something to say about that.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

9 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The box office juggernaut that is Transformers: Age of Extinction just keeps on rolling. One day after becoming China’s highest-grossing movie ever, the Michael Bay-directed sequel has now passed the $600 million mark worldwide, with a domestic haul of $185 million and an international take of $421.2 million giving the film a whopping $606.5 million already. It’s surely only a matter of time before Age of Extinction overtakes Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past to become the biggest earner of the year so far, and at this stage it looks all but assured that it will go on to become the first billion dollar release of 2014.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is out now, with Bay directing a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer »

With the San Diego Comic-Con International fast approaching, Warner Bros. has revealed its full schedule for the con, which includes movies such as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla, as well as a range of TV shows including The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Gotham, Constantine and The Flash. Oddly, there’s no mention of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so if those rumours about a teaser trailer and a big DC Cinematic Universe announcement are true, WB must be trying its best to keep it a surprise. Check out the full press release here…

Transformers: Age of Extinction concept art of unused Transformers

8 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the production of Transformers: Age of Extinction, there was a deal in place between Paramount and motor vehicle company Polaris for them to create Transformers based off their machines. These would have included ATVs, snowmobiles etc. For whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through and the characters were scrapped.

Michael Hirtz (via Cbm) has now shared some of his concepts for what those Transformers would have looked like. They also write, “he informs us that these robots would’ve been relatively small as compared to the normal-sized Transformers. Somewhere around 8-10ft max, based on the types of vehicles Polaris manufactures. Hritz’s designs also do a great job of incorporating the look of Polaris’ vehicles by ‘exposing shocks and linkages, using roll-cages and vehicle structure, aggressive/colorful forms floating over blacked-out mechanical parts.’”
