2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…

On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane »

While the superhero trifecta are taking up all the headlines ahead of the release of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of JusticeWarner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated flick boasts an array of colorful characters and cameos, not least in the form of Jesse Eisenberg’s villainous Lex Luthor.

25 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though we know it’s setting the scene for the larger DC cinematic universe and have a good idea who’ll be in it, there isn’t that much information around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until today, we didn’t even know if Lex Luthor would have hair or not. But now we do!

Just released by Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:

He definitely look intense, plus he’s got previous experience from The Social Network playing a billionaire who isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Eisenberg is set to debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is also rumoured to be a part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016.

Gal Gadot responds to criticism of her Wonder Woman casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

22 March 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Robot Underdog, Gal Gadot has been speaking about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more specifically, the criticism levied towards her casting as the Amazon Princess.

“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. hen I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t… After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I »

20 March 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to some reports, actress Jena Malone ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") will be introduced as 'Robin', the iconic sidekick of 'Batman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Malone is reportedly playing DC Comics' female 'Robin', 'Carrie Kelley', created by Frank Miller, first appearing in DC Comics' "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" #1. (1986). 

"...'Carrie' was a schoolgirl and girl scout who was attacked by muggers one night, but was saved by the recently returned and grizzled elder Batman on his first night out of retirement.

"She would then spend her lunch money on a 'Robin' costume and hunt down some petty con-men to find Batman again, using a slingshot loaded with firecrackers as weapons.

Her parents were very neglectful of her, as one-time activists and hippies during the 1960's that became 'apathetic stoners'..."

Fire Burns Forever In First Teaser And Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

18 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate isn’t taking any chances when it comes to the final part of Katniss Everdeen’s saga. While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is still several months away from release, the studio is rolling out stage one of its marketing campaign. In the spirit of the first three movies, a one-sheet poster outlining the triumphant Mockingjay has arrived online, along with a cheeky teaser trailer.

Turning to this brand new poster, the final stage of Katniss’ journey to bring down The Capitol and its devious leader President Snow is summed up by the tagline “The Fire Will Burn Forever.” Running along the central image of the burning Mockingjay pin, finally breaking free, it ties in to the message of Part 1: “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Similarly, the teaser trailer focuses its efforts on the same motif, albeit while offering little new material. While we can »

The Mockingjay breaks free in first poster for The Hunger Games' finale

18 March 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jennifer Lawrence and her American Hustle director David O. Russell have reunited for this December’s Joy, a biopic that may be the vehicle for Lawrence to repeat her Silver Linings Playbook Oscar win.

But before she starts pushing around Joy’s Miracle Mop – yes, it’s fully a biopic about the Miracle Mop inventor – Lawrence has to return to the role that made her famous, The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, in this November’sThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

In the poster for the sequel, Katniss’ struggle for independence is depicted with the use of her iconic “mockingjay” pin, where the her avatar breaks free of its cage, so to speak, just in time for The Hunger Games’ finale.

Basically, the Capitol is in for a world of hurt.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 also stars Donald Sutherland, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Jena Malone, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 2 Motion Poster Online

18 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hunger Games franchise has a history of motion posters – not surprising given the flaming bird logo that has represented the films for the past few years. With the final chapter, Mockingjay – Part 2 on its way, there’s a film series wrap-up underscoring the new image, which sees the Mockingjay breaking free of his circular barrier like a golden, feathery Freddie Mercury.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. With Francis Lawrence again directing and Lawrence joined on screen by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, »

Karl Glusman Encounters The Neon Demon

17 March 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While the film is more focused on its female characters, Nicolas Winding Refn continues to add men in supporting roles for his new horror thriller, The Neon Demon. Karl Glusman is the latest recruit. Elle Fanning, Abbey Lee, Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves and Bella Heathcote are board for the film, which sees Fanning as a young woman in Los Angeles who attempts to conquer the modelling world, only to be faced with a terrifying force of beauty and death. And that’s literally all that has been revealed about the plot so far, with Refn typically circumspect about his plans. He has said this about the project though: “One morning I woke and realised I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty.”With a script by the director and Mary Laws, The Neon Demon »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon Will Feature Cannibalistic Supermodels

16 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given his track record, Nicolas Winding Refn honestly has my money as soon as he announces a new project. With gripping character study Bronson, stylish modern classic Drive (possibly my favorite movie of all-time) and the hypnotic Only God Forgives under his belt, the filmmaker is one of the most unique voices working in cinema today. And judging by new tidbits about his upcoming horror movie The Neon Demon, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

While being interviewed by Dazed and Confused last month about her documentary My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, the filmmaker’s wife, Liv Corfixen, let slip some fascinating details about The Neon Demon‘s inspirations – including that the film is inspired by Countess Elizabeth Báthory, a notoriously cruel 16th-century countess who was rumored to bathe in the blood of local virgins. Báthory tortured these young girls and murdered them in hopes of »

Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Neon Demon' is Inspired by Countess Bathory

16 March 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The only official information we have on Nicolas Winding Refn's next film, The Neon Demon, is that it's a horror tale with a young female driven cast, written by Refn and Mary Laws. That's not much to go on, but now Dazed Digital and What Culture (via The Playlist) reveal some new information after speaking with Refn's wife and director of My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, Liv Corfixen. First we learn the story was inspired by the tale of Countess Bathory, who inspired many a vampire myth with sadistic rituals that included bathing in the blood of virgins. The Los Angeles-set movie is said to be a bit like the survival thriller Alive (1993) meets Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). Corfixen isn't entirely sure what it's about, at least thematically, adding, "I don't know yet. Maybe it's about spirituality but I'm not sure," while revealing he's been purchasing Christian movies of late. »

Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Neon Demon' Inspired By Countess Báthory, Reportedly Set In The World Of Supermodels

16 March 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filming starts this month on Nicolas Winding Refn's "The Neon Demon," with Elle Fanning,  Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Keanu Reeves and Abbey Lee starring in the film. But there hasn't been much in the way of plot details. We do know that the script was co-written by Mary Laws, and that the film is set in Los Angeles, but outside of that things get fuzzy. However, things are becoming slightly more focused. Last month, Dazed And Confused caught up with Liv Corfixen, Refn's wife and the director of "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn," who revealed that the film is inspired by the tale of Countess Báthory, the serial killing sixteenth century countess who apparently bathed in the blood of virgins to stay young (the last detail is apocryphal, but makes for a good yarn). Moreover, the movie will apparently be like a mix of the »
