Matthew Vaughn suggests Guardians of the Galaxy deserves award recognition, clarifies recent Dark Knight Trilogy comments

22 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a recent interview for HeyUGuys Matthew Vaughn put forward the argument that superhero films are largely underappreciated in the world of cinematic award ceremonies, in particular Guardians of the Galaxy.

He suggests that the Marvel Studios film was a bigger challenge to create than a number of other films “where you just plonk a camera here and there and have a good actor”.

Vaughn also went on to comment on remarks he made about Christopher Nolan’s dark style of superhero film, which he says were taken out of context by the internet.

“What I said is Nolan is very good at doing what he did with Batman, and the subject matter of Batman deserved to be dark, but there are other superheroes, like I don’t think Superman should be dark. The clue’s in the costume, what it should be like…You have to always respect source material, »

Guardians of the Galaxy deserves awards recognition, says Matthew Vaughn

22 January 2015 5:08 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn has said that Guardians of the Galaxy deserved to receive more nominations in the awards season.

The Kingsman: The Secret Service filmmaker complained that James Gunn's Marvel Studios film did not receive the recognition it deserves.

"That film was a lot harder to make than films where you just plonk a camera here and there and have a good actor," he told Hey U Guys.

"It's crazy - Guardians should have been nominated."

Vaughn added: "Most of the movies that are nominated for Oscars put me to sleep."

He also clarified recent comments he made about the public having "had enough" of Christopher Nolan's "very dark, bleak style of superhero escapism", saying that he had been misquoted.

"Nolan is very good at doing what he did with Batman and the subject matter of Batman, which deserves to be dark, but there are other heroes... I don't think Superman should be dark. »

Jake Gyllenhaal Won’t Replace Tom Hardy In Suicide Squad

21 January 2015 8:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, we received the sad news that Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy had dropped out of David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad adaptation, but were informed that Jake Gyllenhaal (who worked with Ayer in 2012’s End of Watch) was being eyed to replace him. Unfortunately, it appears that that’s not the case, and that the Squad is still one member short.

According to Variety, Gyllenhaal has passed on the offer to play Rick Flagg, who works for Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and leads the titular ragtag group of supervillains that includes Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the Joker, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Cara Delevigne as Enchantress.

For those upset about the fact that Gyllenhaal won’t be in the film, I suspect that this won’t be the last time he’ll up for a comic book movie role. »

Interview: Director Michael Jolls Mocks ‘The Great Chicago Filmmaker’

21 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago - A mockumentary in the style of 2009’s political comedy “In the Loop,” “The Great Chicago Filmmaker” aims the camera back at burgeoning directors who mar their projects with delusion and self-admiration. Motivated by real-life horror stories from Chicago film sets, the movie follows a young director (played by Devin Sanclemente) on his journey to birth the next indie sensation, but stumbling over his own ego in the process.

The director poking the psyche of “The Great Chicago Filmmaker” is Michael Jolls, who has been moving towards this feature debut since his 2011 short “6 Rules.” In 2013, he co-directed a 38-minute documentary about a reformed archdiocese in 1872. He now transitions to fictional documentary with “The Great Chicago Filmmaker,” of which he co-wrote and executive produced.

The film is based off an idea by Natalia Samoylova. The script was co-written by Jolls, Laurence F. Knapp, Josh Levine, Sriram Parthasarathy, and Devin Sanclemente. »

From Dr. Manhattan to Batman and Superman: Three of the Best DC Films

21 January 2015 10:56 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From humble beginnings as comic book characters, both Batman and Superman have emerged as globally recognisable icons. Whether they appear on the silver screen or as virtual slot icons on mobile websites such as au.royalvegascasino.com, they now front lucrative franchises that generate billions of dollars on an annual basis. These franchises will both gain a new layer in 2016, as DC get set to release the highly anticipated and potentially record-breaking movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While the true nature and content of this film has yet to be fully understood, we can expect a riotous big screen adventure that incorporates spectacular special effects. What has yet to be determined is where the film will ultimately sit among the pantheon of great DC movies, so let’s consider the competition and the following rival titles: -

The Dark Knight (2008)

The Dark Knight is the most successful Batman-inspired film to date. »

In the following interview with HeyUGuys, Matthew Vaughn sets the record straight in regards to his comments about Christopher Nolan, making it clear that he's a big fan of The Dark Knight Trilogy director, but that he still believes the likes of Spider-Man and Superman should not follow the same dark route as Batman.

The biggest snubs from Oscar nomination morning

20 January 2015 2:44 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After a few days (and a weekend) to digest what the Academy did with their Oscar nominations, I wanted to chime in now with a look at the biggest snubs from that fateful morning. There has been a lot of attention paid to a handful of snubs, but there are plenty of them, both in terms of large and small films. Obviously I won’t be listing them all, but I do have ten specific ones in mind that I want to share with you now. I’ll also be looking at the surprise nominations in a day or two, but today is for just the snubs. Oscar voters did quite a job ruining a few folks’ morning last week, that was for sure… Here now are ten of the biggest snubs from last week: 1.

Batman vs Superman choreographer talks film's fight scenes

20 January 2015 11:19 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A co-choreographer for Zack Snyder's Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice has teased what can be expected from the movie's fight scenes.

Guillermo Grispo - who has previously created duels for 300, Kick-Ass and The Legend of Hercules - said the battles between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel will be unlike anything seen before.

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 »

For all of the hype and excitement surrounding Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of the most pressing questions raised by fans at this early stage has been how the director will portray the inevitable clash between the two titular heroes.

The Movies We Wanted in 2014 vs The Movies We Got

20 January 2015 6:36 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Every year we put out a list of the movies we’re most anticipated in the coming 12 months. Most every site does, and most every site does it on the tail-end of exploring the year that came before. Yet those are really two different conversations happening in the same room. When we all look back on the best of a year, we’re doing so with the glorious benefit of experience, trading it immediately for the naivete that comes with future optimism. In other words, we tend to judge a cinematic year through one set of clear eyes while forgetting what we were excited about at the outset. So I wanted to “grade” our Most Anticipated Movies of 2014 (The Final Member to Interstellar) by judging it against how we felt about the movies in reviews — not as an exercise in how good or bad we were at predicting, but as an exercise to see how well the »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice choreographer talks fight scenes, promises they will be better than The Dark Knight

20 January 2015 5:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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. »
