The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

23 December 2010 6:23 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Screenwriter David Goyer hinted at what the storyline for the new ‘Superman’ reboot, to be directed by Zack Snyder, may focus on, Cinemablend.com is reporting. Goyer penned a forward for the new graphic novel Superman: Secret Origin by Geoff Johns. After reflecting on one of the scenes in the book, he wrote that he’s halfway through his screenplay.

Goyer added that the Secret Origin is the first story that will influence him. The scene Goyer reflected on follows Clark Kent being told by his [...] »

David Goyer's Graphic Novel Intro Hints at His Take on 'Superman'

23 December 2010 4:10 AM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Right now, there really isn't another high profile picture being shrouded in as much secrecy as Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film (well, besides anything J.J. Abrams works on, that is).  Even Christopher Nolan is giving a little dish on his next Batman picture.  But all we've gotten out of Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer is a few cryptic tidbits about Clark Kent's internal struggle on whether or not to become Superman.

Well, after Goyer was brought in to write the introduction to Geoff Johns' new graphic novel, Superman: Secret Origin, we have a little more insight on what to expect from his incarnation of Supes.  Hit the jump to read Goyer's intro. »

Superman Reboot Based on Secret Origins Graphic Novel?

22 December 2010 4:54 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

David Goyer, the writer of the upcoming "Superman" reboot, wrote the forward for the newly released "Superman: Secret Origins" graphic novel, giving away a bit about the upcoming film. He wrote: "There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark is told the truth about his heritage. He races out into the night, sobbing, stumbling through the cornfields. Eventually, his foster father, Jonathan, finds him. 'I don't want to be someone else,' says Clark. 'I don't want to be different. I want to be Clark Kent. I want to be your son' Right there in that moment, Geoff [Johns] contextualized Superman in a way that I'm not sure has ever really been done before. I had an 'aha' experience when I read that. For the first time I was able to grasp how lonely Clark must have been when he was growing up. And »

22 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Superman: Man of Steel), which is being overseen by producer/director Christopher Nolan (Inception, Untitled Batman Project) and written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises).

The foreword of the graphic novel was written by David S. Goyer, it hints at the direction the film will take and sights Geoff Johns story in Secret Origin as being a source of inspiration for the film.

Did Goyer Give Us A Hint On The 'Superman' Script?

22 December 2010 1:55 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Does anyone know exactly what the "Superman: Man of Steel" script is all about? Nope, but maybe a little of what screen writer David Goyer said could enlighten us. This was found in Superman: Secret Origin, maybe it's a hint of things to come?"There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark is told the truth about his heritage. He races out into the night, sobbing, stumbling through the cornfields. Eventually, his foster father, Jonathan, finds him."'I don't want to be someone else,' says Clark.

Did David Goyer Base His Superman Script On The Secret Origins?

22 December 2010 12:06 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With no less than six comic book movies set to be released, 2012 is likely to go down in history as the year of the superhero. The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, the Spider-Man reboot, the Superman reboot, The Wolverine and Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance are all scheduled to premiere within the twelve month period and fans are clamoring to know about every last detail (well, maybe not for Ghost Rider, but let's just roll with it).

What Does David Goyer’s Introduction to a Superman Graphic Novel Suggest About His ‘Superman’ Script?

22 December 2010 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

What story is going to power the new Superman film to be directed by Zack Snyder? We know that David Goyer, who wrote the script, pitched an idea to Christopher Nolan that the Batman director regarded [1] as a great way to "address Superman in a modern context." And Zack Snyder has said a few crypic things [2] about the film (including what seemed to be a refutation of the report that General Zod is in the movie) while not offering much real detail. But David Goyer penned the introduction to the Superman: Secret Origin collection, and his text has a couple references to the upcoming film. Read it after the break. Here's what the screenwriter had to say about the Secret Origin tale penned by Geoff Johns: There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark is told the truth about his heritage. He races out into the night, »

Did David S. Goyer Reveal Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ Plot?

22 December 2010 9:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From Blastr: David S. Goyer is all over the comic book-movie genre, having written the original stories for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight with Christopher Nolan, the Blade movies (as well as writing and directing Blade: Trinity), and he’s currently writing the script for Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel. His foreword to the new graphic novel Superman: Secret Origins may have given away details of his approach to the new film’s story.

This excerpt from Goyer’s foreword seems to telegraph his intentions:

“There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark is told the truth about his heritage. He races out into the night, sobbing, stumbling through the cornfields. Eventually, his foster father, Jonathan, finds him.”

‘I don’t want to be someone else,’ says Clark. ‘I don’t want to be different. I want to be Clark Kent. »

Did David Goyer give away a Plot Point from the new Superman Movie?

22 December 2010 8:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

David Goyer was one of the main screenwriters on Zack Snyder's new Superman film, and it looks like he just revealed the plot of the film in the forward of the Superman: Secret Origins graphic novel.

It's already been revealed that Superman was going to be an origin story that revolves Clark Kent's reluctance to become the superhero he was born to be. There was also a rumor that it would be based on the Brightlight comic book, which was recently shot down when Snyder said the movie wouldn't be based on any comic book in particular. But then Goyer wrote something in the forward that makes me believe that Secret Origins has a bigger story to play in the plot of the new movie than previously thought. 

Here's what Goyer had to say:

"There is a heart breaking moment halfway through the first chapter in which young Clark »

Superman Reboot Script Partially Inspired by ‘Secret Origin’ Comic?

22 December 2010 8:27 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Director Zack Snyder made a name for himself by helming extremely literal film adaptations of the comic books 300 and Watchmen. He’ll evidently be taking a departure from that approach with his upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. Although Snyder has previously insisted that the film will not be based on any specific comic or graphic novel, it would probably be impossible for screenwriter (and bona fide comic book geek) David S. Goyer not to at least draw inspiration from them.

Before producer Christopher Nolan departed Man of Steel to focus his attention on The Dark Knight Rises, he frequently mentioned that it was Goyer’s unique approach to the material that had attracted him to the project. But when dealing with a mythology as universally well-known as Superman’s, how exactly did Goyer tackle ...

Snyder's 'Superman' Movie Inspired By 'Superman: Secret Origin'?

22 December 2010 7:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News, Hot Topic, Cinematical

Details about Zack Snyder's reboot of the 'Superman' franchise have been somewhat hard to come by, but comic book fans may have just gotten a huge hint as to what direction the newest Man of Steel adventure might take, courtesy of screenwriter David Goyer.

The scribe penned a foreword for the recently released deluxe hardcover version of DC Comics' 'Superman: Secret Origin' that indicates the six installment miniseries penned by Geoff Johns served as the inspiration for the first draft of his screenplay. This is a departure from Snyder's stance that the reboot would not be based on a specific existing comic or graphic novel, leading many of us to wonder just what parts of the six issues will be included and whether or not they might be mixed with other books as well (earlier rumors indicated that Snyder's film might »

Zack Snyder's Superman Movie Will Shoot in Vancouver

17 December 2010 12:02 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's being reported that Zack Snyder will direct the new Warner Bros. produced Superman film in Vancouver. According to The Globe and Mail,

"[Zack Snyder’s] next feature’s coming here,” said Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association of BC and president of North Shore Studios and Mammoth Studios.

Leitch would not name Superman: Man of Steel as the film in question, but a source has confirmed that the next film in the Superman franchise will be shot in Vancouver next year, with production likely beginning in the summer.

I wouldn't doubt that the movie would shoot in Canada. I honestly don't care where it ends up shooting as long as the movie ends up being a great Superman film. 

Warner Bros. is planning to release the movie in December of 2012. The movie was written by David Goyer and Jonathan Nolan, and there are still no casting details.  »

Luke Goss interview: Blade, Hellboy and Death Race sequels, The Hobbit and becoming a geek

17 December 2010 9:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To tie in with the release of the crashtastic Death Race 2, we caught up with star Luke Goss to chat about his film appearances and growing geek credentials…

Thanks in large part to Guillermo del Toro, Luke Goss has been able to prove his acting ability in a number of geek movies. For me, both Blade II and Hellboy II went against the usual law of sequels to deliver superior films, in which Goss’ core roles involved performing with the added combination of prosthetics and physical action as characters Nomak and Prince Nuada.

We had the pleasure of talking to him about his new film Death Race 2, an origin story about the formation of the race itself, while taking the opportunity to talk about his other work, including getting a call from del Toro about The Hobbit, his cinematic heroes, and whether he’d be interested in The »

Ten Essential... Movie Superheroes

17 December 2010 2:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson selects his Essential Movie Superheroes...

Although the comic-book superhero was generally overlooked by the movie industry until Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978) made you believe a man could fly, Hollywood failed to capitalise on this success over the next couple of decades and a stigma soon became attached to the genre. Save for a handful of notable exceptions (Warner Bros.’ Batman franchise was successful, but we all know how that turned out once Joel Schumacher got involved), it wasn’t until the release of the X-Men and Spider-Man movies that Hollywood really started to stand up and pay attention.

These days it seems you can’t breathe for superheroes – 2010 has seen the release of Iron Man II, Kick-Ass and Jonah Hex, while the next few years will see a host of superhero movies grace the screen including Thor and X-Men: First Class in 2011 along with the likes of Captain America, »
