Teeth director Mitchell Lichtenstein is back with a very different kind of horror story. Based on the novel by Arthur Phillips, Angelica stars Jena Malone as a wife and mother haunted by spirits in Victorian England. The Angelica trailer is full of the shadows, bumps, and ominous warnings typical of the genre, but there’s a […]

Jason Momoa was announced last year as playing Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe, and while his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still over a year a way, fans are keen to get any little bit of information they can about the film.
During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Momoa has offered up some new details, responding to a question from a fan about what we can expected by stating: “Well, things are going to be a little different. When I first went in I met with Zack [Snyder] and his idea is pretty amazing. When I went in, he told me … my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn’t normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for … definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know… I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson; Screenwriter: Paul Thomas Anderson; Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone; Running time: 148 mins; Certificate: 15
With masterpieces like Boogie Nights and Magnolia tucked under his belt, Paul Thomas Anderson's new movies are inevitably threatened by the huge burden of expectation. A bold director who never shies away from a challenge, Anderson's latest effort tackles Thomas Pynchon's supposedly unfilmable novel Inherent Vice and bears all the hallmarks of his finest work – a terrific ensemble cast, acutely observed visual detail and a labyrinthine plot that weaves together disparate and desperate figures. Sadly on this occasion, such individually strong components fail to gel together as a whole and provide a consistently engaging experience.
The intriguing period at the start of the 1970s is the canvas for the story, which involves a stoner private detective known as 'Doc' (Joaquin Phoenix »
To celebrate the release of Inherent Vice in cinemas on January 30, we’re giving you the chance to win one of five sets of film merchandise.
From acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) Inherent Vice is the groovy adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name, featuring an all-star cast that includes Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro .
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a loony bin…well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and »

In an previous interview, Del Toro stated that the line-up for his Justice League Dark movie would include Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatana. Well according to Latino-Review, there could be a slight change to that line-up.

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson.
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Joana Newsom, Jordan Christian Hearn, Eric Roberts, Maya Rudolph, Hong Chau, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Reese Witherspoon.
Running Time: 148 minutes
Synopsis: Feckless Pi, Doc Sportello (Phoenix), is asked to investigate a supposed plot to commit land tycoon, Michael Z. Wolfmann (Roberts), to a loony bin.
Paul Thomas Anderson is quite simply one of the greatest directors of his generation, maybe even The greatest. But with any great director, there are usually stumbling blocks along the way. Spielberg, Scorsese, and more recently Nolan, have all given us films that weren’t necessarily up to the ridiculous standards they set for themselves. Unfortunately, with Inherent Vice, Anderson doesn’t so much stumble, as he does plummet head first into the ground, crashing through all the good work he’s done over the last two decades plus. »

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.
“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.
“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”
Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

Ever heard of second-tier DC superhero Fatman? Because he might be starring in the new Zack Snyder film.
Oooh, it’s just Ben Affleck with a ‘six pack’ (or ‘beer gut’) as Batman in the latest photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

First Grant Gustin and now Melissa Benoist, it seems starring in Glee has become an popular route to getting your own superhero TV show. Benoist, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is now confirmed to play Supergirl. It’s time to chuck out your previous betting slips with Claire Holt on them, it would seem.
As well as Glee (which she joined in season 4 and even sang in a faux-Wonder Woman costume in one episode), Benoist is currently gracing UK screens as poorly-treated love interest Nicole in the excellent Whiplash.
Supergirl, if you don’t know already, goes by the name Kara Zor-el and is cousins with the Man Of Steel himself. There are lots of parallels; She was also born on Krypton, but managed to escape its destruction, found a foster family, and »

Those of you who frequent our website often will notice in posts about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Scoot McNairy is noted as starring in the movie in a “as-yet-unrevealed roles”. During an interview with USA Today, McNairy was grilled about the movie, but wasn’t letting up any information.
“Man, I would love to spend hours with you about it but I don’t know if you’d see me in another movie if I did,” the actor joked before calling director Zack Snyder “an incredible filmmaker and an incredible visionary”.
“Playing in that world with comic books you’ve been reading since you were a kid, being someone in that world, it’s awesome,” he added.

A new image of a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice crew member shirt has been making waves online today, and for good reason.
Not only does it offer up a great illustrated look at an armored Batman facing off with Henry Cavill’s Superman in what’s very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but it uses a quote from that seminal comic as well: “…Remind them that giants walk the Earth.”
Interestingly, the quote is actually only part of what Miller originally wrote: “We must not remind them that giants walk the Earth.” If the actual quote is in Batman V Superman at all, perhaps Snyder is paraphrasing or reworking it. Or maybe it’s just included here because it looks badass on the T-shirt.

In Teenage, documentarian Matt Wolf examines the origins of a term and a people that we take for granted nowadays: the teenager. The idea of a teenager did not always exist, and in this film Wolf goes back to the creation of this stage of life—a stage of life that was just as riddled with angst as it is today. The film tells the history of teenagers from the 1870s-1940s using mostly archival footage and photos. Diary entries read by Ben Whishaw, Jena Malone, and others serve as the only narration for the film.
In the 1870s child reform during the industrial revolution forces children out of the workplace and into the schoolroom. Suddenly a group of people who normally go straight from child to adult at the rough age of 12 now find themselves with more free time and fewer responsibilities. And so the teenager is born.

Batman v Superman will make cinema history, says Henry Cavill
Henry Cavill: 'Batman v Superman will only be one film'
Speaking to Los Andes Diario (via Batman News), Grispo said: "There's a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug.
"But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there's a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a first-hand confrontation, though it seems to be totally to Batman's disadvantage."
He continued: "Now Batman is going to fight the way »
Ten years ago, Knightley and Pike turned heads playing the eldest Bennet sisters, Elizabeth and Jane, in the beloved 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s romantic tale Pride & Prejudice. Other members in the impressive ensemble included a fresh-faced Carey Mulligan, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland and Dame Judi Dench.
Pride & Prejudice was universally praised in the U.K. ahead of its U.S. release, and a then-19 year old Knightley was hopeful the British film would resonate in the States.
“It was so fantastic that it was received so well in England -- obviously it's my home country so I like that but yeah, I just hope people like it here! I’m sure »
Don't worry, there is nothing in this article that will spoil Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for you. We have a new promo photo for the film to share thanks to JoBlo, and it gives us a slightly different look at Ben Affleck as Batman. There's also an interview with the fight choreographer of the film, Guillermo Grispo, who talks about the epic fight sequence between Batman and Superman that we'll see in the film. This is what he said to Los Andes Diario (via Batman News):
“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug. But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there’s a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a firsthand confrontation, though it seems to be totally to Batman’s disadvantage.”
Grispo has worked on over 30 films in his career, »

With rumours floating around the Internet that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be hitting the world next month (attached to Jupiter Ascending), the wait to see The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel square off is almost upon us. But how will the fight go down?
“Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice choreographer Guillermo Grispo told Los Andes Diario (translated by Batman News). “It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson.”
“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that [Superman] will squash him like a bug,” he continues. »
