David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars: first promo

15 April 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Trailer Ryan Lambie 15 Apr 2014 - 10:11

Erstwhile king of venereal horror David Cronenberg has a new film out this year. Here's the first promo for Maps To The Stars...

A Hollywood satire from one of cinema's most wayward and unpredictable directors: this is what excites us about David Cronenberg's forthcoming Maps To The Stars. It's about a decadent, extended Beverly Hills family that includes John Cusack's self-help manual-writing guru, his wife (Olivia Williams), and his daughter (Mia Wasikowska), who's just come out of a sanatorium after setting fire to something expensive. Oh, and there's an actress (Julianne Moore), and Robert Pattinson's limo driver, who has dreams of becoming an actor himself. Among this tangled web of characters, a dark, murderous drama plays out.

The first promo (which you can find below these words) does give the impression that Maps To The Stars is akin to a 90s thriller like Poison Ivy, »

Exclusive Interview: Jaime Pressly Talks A Haunted House 2 Too!

10 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In A Haunted House 2, Jaime Pressly plays Megan – the lighter side of an interracial couple with more than the usual problems. A mother of two, she and her kids move in with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) – but little does she know his possessed ex-girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) is living right next door...

And there’s nothing worse than a scorned demonic woman.

Pressly is no stranger to the horror genre (her first starring role was in the straight to video sequel to Poison Ivy, back in 1997), but she’s mostly known for comedy (the actress won two Emmys for her performance as Joy in "My Name Is Earl") – so what could be more perfect than mixing the two for A Haunted House 2?

We had a chance to sit down with Ms. Pressly at a press junket in Beverly Hills and get the scary scoop, 1:1.

Gotham: 10 Dream Choices To Play The Joker

9 April 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

The immediate appeal of Fox’s upcoming Gotham show is easy to quantify. Not only does it promise Batfans another taste of their favourite comic book locale, it also boasts established characters like Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne, The Penguin and Two-Face, if the teases are all to be believed. And even more attractively, the show promises new takes on all of those characters, looking at the Bat family and the rogues’ gallery before Bruce Wayne put the cape and cowl on.

With new origin stories and young actors portraying other iconic figures like Poison Ivy, Alfred and Catwoman, it’s hard not to wonder whether we will get to explore origin stories for all of Batman’s most famous characters. Could we see The Riddler turn from conman to master criminal intellect? Might Clayface already be stalking the streets of Gotham in disguise? And what of that most iconic of Batman villains? »

Wonder Woman, Catwoman and more DC heroine team-ups we'd like to see

29 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Any episode of a DC television show titled "Birds of Prey" is going to come under incredible scrutiny. After all, that’s the name of one of DC’s longest-lived – and most beloved – ongoing female-lead series. Since most comic book movies still don’t pass the Bechdel test, fans are more than eager to see female interactions that don’t hinge upon their male co-stars in television shows and movies. Now that Arrow has come close to introducing Huntress and Black Canary’s storied partnership on TV, we have five other female partnerships that we want to see make the transition from the page to the screen. Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy This dynamic duo starred in one of the most endearing and enduring episodes of "Batman: The Animated Series,” as it depicted DC’s Thelma and Louise painting Gotham red. Harley’s already had an Easter egg appearance in "Arrow, »

26 March 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Chills and thrills: will Gotham City be put on ice? George Clooney is Batman as the dark knight battles his greatest threat yet: cold-hearted Mr. Freeze (Schwarzenegger) and venomous Poison Ivy (Thurman).

Batman & Robin (1997) was directed by Joel Schumacher, from a script written by Akiva Goldsman. The film starred: Arnold Schwarzenegger as Dr. Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze, George Clooney as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Chris O'Donnell as Dick Grayson/Robin, Uma Thurman as Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl, Michael Gough as Alfred Pennyworth, Pat Hingle as Commissioner James Gordon, Elle Macpherson as Julie Madison, Vivica A. Fox as Ms. B. Haven, and Vendela Kirsebom as Nora Fries. »

Capsule Movie Reviews (Mar. 19): 'Finding Vivian Maier' and five more

26 March 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

New Release

Finding Vivian Maier

Not Rated, 1 Hr., 23 Mins.

More connect-the-dots detective thriller than traditional doc, John Maloof and Charlie Siskel’s revelatory riddle of a film unmasks a brilliant photographer who hid in plain sight for decades working as an eccentric French nanny. Her name was Vivian Maier, and judging from her haunting, humorous, and long-unseen street portraits, she was like Mary Poppins living a double life as Diane Arbus. (Also available on VOD) A- —Chris Nashawaty

Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq

Not Rated, 1 Hr., 31 Mins.

Buf at 30: Visual Effects Magicians Turn to Conjuring Content

19 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With a track record spanning more than 80 feature films and almost 1,000 commercials, Buf Compagnie is diversifying its revenue sources and forging long-term partnerships by positioning itself as a co-producer rather than just a standard vfx shop.

The change began when Buf produced Oscar-nominated short “Even Pigeons Go to Heaven” in 2007 and launched Angele & Fine Productions, named after founder Pierre Buffin’s daughters, to line-produce international projects that are serviced by Buf under France’s Trip tax rebate scheme. Titles have included “Thor,” “The Grandmaster” and “Odd Thomas.”

The company also operates two L.A. production arms: Angele Productions for live-action projects and Fine Productions for animation.

In 2012, Buf established post houses in Montreal and Brussels to access local tax shelters.

Its first project via the Brussels unit was Nicolas Bary’s €12 million ($16 million) dark comedy, “The Scapegoat,” which bowed in France last October.

Co-productions include “Toby Alone,” with Amber Entertainment, »

Batman & Robin Storyboards With Bane & Poison Ivy Concept Art

19 March 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Film Skechr has new Batman & Robin article that contains an interview with conceptual illustrator, Tim Burgard. The images include a design for Uma Thurman's eco-terrorist, Poison Ivy, and storyboards with Bane, who was played by professional wrestler Jeep Swenson (died 2 months after the film was released). Here's an excerpt: Maurice Mitchell: You have a design for Poison Ivy that is pretty different from the final film. Was it considered? Tim Burgard: Because the costume department didn't release their costume designs to me for me to do my job I went ahead and did their job first. You can see from my boards that I decided to use Poison Ivy's original comic book costume, which was better than the film version in my opinion. Click here for the full interview.

Batman Vs. Superman Movie: 10 Villains That Would Pay Subtle Tribute To Nolan’s Trilogy

14 March 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Regardless of how you personally felt about Man Of Steel the sequel became every comic book lover’s most anticipated movie as soon as it was announced. When the news hit that Batman was going to be involved and that Zack Snyder was going to bring two of the most popular superheroes together for the first time on film, the internet imploded. And we here at What Culture are having a hell of a lot of fun with the debris.

Now, I know you might be thinking that Snyder shouldn’t be coming anywhere near Batman, especially because it feels like just yesterday when Christopher Nolan changed the comic book movie game with his outstanding Dark Knight trilogy. But what if Snyder found a way to salute Nolan’s Batman universe by diving into the vast treasure chest of Batman’s colourful villains? What if Snyder paid a subtle kind »

Face Off Episode 608

“Ego Trip Abroad”

Original Airdate: 4 March 2014

In This Episode…

The group has a wonderful time in Japan. Lots of travelogue nonsense before they meet Kazuhiro Tsuji (arguably the greatest makeup artist in the world) who will judge their foundation challenge: create an original oni (a Japanese demon, who we are spending a lot of time with in Teen Wolf, ironically enough). Daran wins, and will have immunity for their spotlight challenge.

The contestants head to Akihabra, the anime capital of the world. This is to inspire them, for they are going to create their own anime characters, an alter-ego of themselves. A famous anime artist will be mentoring them. They will then return to Los Angeles and create the actual makeups in their lab.

The Creations

Daran wanted his alter-ego to find freedom. To him, that was either fish or birds, and he was inspired by the koi, »

'Gotham' Pilot Details Revealed for Batman TV Series

27 February 2014 12:22 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Details have emerged about the plot of Fox's new series Gotham, which is set in Gotham City years before Bruce Wayne became Batman. io9 has gotten their hands on a leaked copy of the pilot script, dated January 31, 2014 and labeled "Second Network Draft," which teases the possible inclusion of one new villain, while setting up the relationship that forms between young James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his new partner, the corruptable Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue). We've also learned details about villains Catwoman and Riddler.

The show, which was given a direct-to-series order last year, completely bypassing the pilot stage, largely focuses on Gordon and Bullock, who are investigating the murder of young Bruce Wayne's parents. The death first appears to be a common mugging until new, unspecified details emerge. Bruce Wayne, who has not been cast yet, is said to be between 10 and 12 years old in the show, which confirms a report from December. »

Could a Terrible Accident Really Turn You Into a Superhero?

19 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some superheroes have their origins in ways unavailable to your average person. Batman and Iron Man rely on their own personal well-funded technology. Captain American is a result of a highly complex super soldier program. Thor is a space alien god, which could also be said for Superman. And someone like Ghost Rider or Jonah Hex has his origins in the supernatural. Still, there are plenty of superhero origins that rely on pure chance, often a result of a horrible accident. That got me thinking… could an industrial accident really turn you into a movie superhero? The Answer: Almost assuredly not. And you’d die a painful, horrible death. So don’t do it. In the interest of simplicity, these origins are from the movies rather than the comic books themselves. While the comics feature some pretty outlandish and unbelievable origins, there’s a narrower field in the films themselves. Two »

10 Super-Bad Comic Book Girls You Don’t Want As Your Valentine

4 February 2014 11:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Hey fellas! Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you’re probably cursing yourself because you’ve got to pony up some time or shell out some cash to get something special for the lady in your life. Why? Because if you don’t, you know you’ll suffer for it for at least a couple of weeks.

C’mon! You probably have a good one, so why don’t you count your blessings and take her out and make her feel appreciated? Don’t let your lady turn evil, because valentines are supposed to be exchanged and you need to ensure that the valentine you get back isn’t one crafted for revenge.

Take these super-bad girls, for instance. Every single one of these villainous vixens are about due rewards. They certainly wouldn’t expect a valentine from you, but if they were supposed to give you one, »

'Amazing Spider-Man 2' and the Too Many Villains problem

4 February 2014 9:42 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in a mere three months, but it feels like the web-swinging reboot-sequel keeps expanding its cast every day. Just yesterday, director Marc Webb officially announced via Twitter that former Officer perma-temp B.J. Novak will play A. Smythe, which is almost certainly some version of Alistair Smythe – a character who eventually becomes the bad-guy criminal scientist behind a line of nasty robots called Spider-Slayers. It’s possible that Novak will only be in the movie for a short while — and it’s worth remembering that Dylan Baker played Curt Connors through two Spider-Man movies without every transforming into the Lizard. »
