A few months ago, it was announced that Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman would be helming Justice League Dark, which is now officially titled Dark Universe. Liman will be working off a script written by Guillermo del Toro, the film's original director, and it's been confirmed that the project will be a part of the current DC Films Universe. While talking to IGN, Liman spoke about his approach to the film and how he plans to bring something new to the comic book movie genre. "Yeah, I mean first of all, I love those characters, and I love Warner Bros., and I love [producer] Scott Rudin, and it’s -- and you know, I get asked to come in and do things that are “unconventional.” If people want conventional, they don’t come to me. It’s why doing Invisible was like right up my alley -- because how can »
An adaptation of Brandon Sanderson's "Way of Kings" is being fast tracked in a massive literary deal between the author, Dmg Entertainment and publisher Tor Books. According to Variety, Dmg Entertainment, who have connections to Chinese resources, is committing $270 million towards a three-film prospect, but have also acquired the rights to all of Sanderson's work, which makes up a shared universe of stories and characters he calls the "Cosmere".

The ostensible reason to invest in a Criterion Collection edition of a movie is its reference-quality audio and video, its thoughtful critical notes, and its surplus of supplemental documentaries and commentaries. But another huge part of it is the thrill of seeing its cover, which reliably reimagines the accompanying movie’s themes and images.
Earlier this month, Criterion released Guillermo del Toro’s 2006 dark fantasy Pan’s Labyrinth, which occasioned a separate release containing all of del Toro’s Criterion editions. While you can get that three-pack in a typically striking slipcase on DVD, the Blu-ray versions demand an enclosure as nightmarish as its contents. Over on the Criterion website, designer Eric Skillman traced the creative process for all of the company’s work with del Toro.

In case you didn’t notice, Ellar Coltrane stops being a boy sometime near the end of Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making “Boyhood.” Two years have passed since that ambitious project came to fruition, and we’ve seen little of Coltrane in the interim. Keyframe caught up with the Austin-based actor, who says he’s ready to spend more time in Los Angeles and move forward with his career.
“I got really lucky with ‘Boyhood,'” he explains, “and I’ve kind of been able to just not work that much for the past couple of years. I think I needed the break, and needed to catch up with my family.” Coltrane, who was most recently seen in “Barry” and “The Circle,” says he’s been working on short films and other small projects in his hometown, »

Hollywood has spent years trying to figure out a way to mount a live action “Pinocchio” movie. Guillermo del Toro, Stanley Kubrick, and Tim Burton have tried at various points to bring the fairy tale to life, while most recently, Paul Thomas Anderson penned a script for a movie Robert Downey Jr. has been shepherding for years (and at one time Ben Stiller was attached to direct).

New York Comic Con has once again rushed by in a giant, fun, crazy blur, and although I didn’t get to nearly all the things I was hoping to, I did have a rockin’ time and see some really cool things I can share.
The first of these were a few great panels I landed seats for, including, as is my tradition, the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel. If you don’t know I love the current Tmnt, then what are you, new here? But seriously, I love it. And each panel I have gone to brings something new and different.
This panel (with Andrea Romano (voice director), Eric Bauza (Tiger Claw), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Shredder), Greg Cipes (Mikey), Rob Paulsen (Donnie), and Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer)) was particularly fun, because one of the things they did was a live read of episode #420, “The Super Shredder,” which »

When it was revealed that John Boyega had signed on for Pacific Rim 2, it was rumoured that he would be playing the son of Stacker Pentercost, played by Idris Elba in the first film. Well, the actor has taken to Instagram to reveal his role in the movie.
After posting Pentercost’s infamous “cancelling the apocalypse” speech, the star noted, “My dad said it right the first time but I’ll take it from here”, adding the hashtag #IamPentercost

In his new film, The Windmill, Nick Jongerius transforms one of Holland's picturesque tourist attractions into a hub of blood-soaked horror. With XLrator Media releasing The Windmill on VOD and iTunes this Tuesday, followed by a theatrical release on October 28th, we caught up with Jongerius for our latest Q&A feature.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Nick. When did you first come up with the idea for The Windmill?
Nick Jongerius: My pleasure. Thanks for your interest in the film. I first started thinking about the idea for this film after Frankenstein's Army. Our investors at that time were really interested in Holland, especially Amsterdam—the dikes, windmills, clogs, etc. This triggered me. I thought, "What if we use these famous touristic symbols of Holland and drench them in blood? Sort of turning it upside down. From there we shot a proof of concept, »

There’s a glorious scene in Roberto Sneider’s “Me estás matando, Susana,” where Gael Garcia Bernal’s character, a young Mexican actor, flies to a U.S. writing seminar to win back the love of his wife, a feminist novelist. Dining with her fellow students, Garcia Bernal staunchly defends Mexican regional cuisine. “You go to each little town and you say: ‘What do you eat?’” And he fires off the replies: ‘Pubil suckling-pig tacos, Juchitan armadillo, worms from Oaxaca, chipinil, bull’s penis.” And what’s the seminar’s local town known for? “Well,” says one student, “They do a pretty good baconburger.”
On Friday, Gael Garcia Bernal opened the Morelia Festival, one of Latin America’s highest-profile film events, presenting Pablo Larrain’s “Neruda.” Breaking out internationally with Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s “Amores Perros” in 2000, then winning Venice’s Marcelo Mastroianni Award with childhood friend Diego Luna for »

Soon after Avengers: Age of Ultron slammed into theaters, writer-director Joss Whedon took a much-needed hiatus from the film industry at large, quietly retreating from Twitter in the face of asinine criticism and abuse. Thanks to his impassioned Save the Day campaign, though, Whedon is beginning to rear his head once more – thank the heavens – even expressing his burning desire to direct a Star Wars movie.
Buried in that same interview with Complex were some fleeting details regarding what Whedon is currently working on, and though it’s unclear if he will go on to helm the project itself, it immediately piques our curiosity for blending horror with World War II.
First up, Whedon revealed that he is, in fact, “in the middle of a screenplay that I am extremely passionate about, and I am going to be extremely passionate about it again on November 9. It’s definitely a departure »

Like some of the best illustrations that graced the covers of fantasy novels and heavy metal albums in the ’70s and ’80s, Arik Roper's artwork is a portal to another world brimming with adventure and endless possibilities. Ahead of his appearance as a featured artist at MondoCon 2016 this weekend in Austin, TX, we caught up with Roper for a special "Meet the Artist" Q&A feature, and we also have a look at some of the eye-popping artwork he'll be bringing to this year's MondoCon.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Arik. What sparked your initial interest in being an artist?
Arik Roper: It was a natural path for me, being an artist. Both my parents were artists. I was surrounded by it and I instinctively was drawn toward it, and received a lot of encouragement.
Your art often transports people deep into the realms of fantasy and horror. »
