Review – The Strain: The Complete Second Season

26 August 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Guillermo Del Toro has a fascination for traditional old school horror that can’t be denied. His films have reached both hardcore and mainstream audiences, developing a relationship with fans that most directors crave. His childhood fantasies have been brought to the big screen in the form of creations like the faun creature in Pan’S Labyrinth and the Kaiju monsters in Pacific Rim. He came up with a concept that involved vampires terrorizing New York City with undeserved characters rarely given a chance to be heroes and turned it into a hit trilogy of novels. These novels attracted enough attention to garner adaptation offers, eventually landing on the FX network, thus providing us with The Strain TV series.

Season one began a plane that mysteriously lands at JFK International Airport with no signal from the inside. Once opened, the presumably dead passengers come back to life with blood shot »

Comics on Film: What Is 'Justice League Dark?' We Break It Down

26 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

While we’ve heard rumblings off and on for most of the past four years concerning a possible foray into the DC Comics Universe by none other than director Guillermo del Toro, it looks as if the film he’d spent his time developing at Warner Bros. has been handed off to a new director. While it’s too bad we won’t be seeing the Hellboy director taking on the superhero genre again anytime soon, it’s hard not to get at least a little excited at the possibilities of Dark Universe, aka Justice League Dark, and how the characters can fit together on screen. It's true that we have seen several of the traditional “Jld” characters adapted before in multiple mediums, they’ve never been brought together in a way like this before, and have...

From Beyoncé to Bowie: The Seven Best Music Videos Nominated at the 2016 VMAs

25 August 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

MTV’s annual Video Music Awards are set to air this Sunday night, and — as usual — the film world couldn’t possibly care less. And that’s understandable. After all, we have enough award shows of our own to worry about, and the VMAs are better known for Britney Spears tongue-kissing Madonna (what a scandal!) than they are for celebrating great art.

But perhaps we’re being a bit too hasty and dismissive. The interplay between movies and music videos has been thoroughly documented, but a glance at the list of recent Vma winners is enough to suggest that relationship is growing stronger, and might even demand a greater degree of critical attention. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence may not be receiving many accolades for his film work, but the clip he created for Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” won MTV’s highest honor. “Detention” was widely »

25 August 2016 | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Warner Bros.' Dark Universe Gets A New Director

25 August 2016 5:17 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While never officially announced, Guillermo del Toro has in the last few years been hyping up Dark Universe, his vision of DC Comics’ Justice League Dark, a collection of supernatural heroes who tackle the problems the Justice League can’t, made up of the likes of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. Think of the Bprd from Hellboy, and you would be on the right track. The project has been seemingly stalled recently, with Del Toro sidetracked by other projects, and now Variety are reporting that has left the project, with Go and The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman signing on as his replacement. This puts into question the fate of the Channing Tatum starring X-Men spin-off, Gambit, which Liman was originally set to direct, but has been beset by problems lately. According to the publication, him joining Dark Universe is the result of a mutual split »

Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark movie, exits Gambit

25 August 2016 12:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Doug Liman has grown tired of waiting for 20th Century Fox to get its oft-delayed Gambit movie off the ground, as it has been revealed that the Edge of Tomorrow director is swapping the X-Men franchise for the DC Extended Universe – and more specifically, the supernatural side of the Dceu.

Variety is reporting that Liman has signed on to direct Justice League Dark for Warner Bros., with the studio reviving the project which spent several years in development under Guillermo del Toro (who remains attached as a producer). The report also states that the line-up will feature John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon, and suggests that the film “will play a major role” in the Dceu.

What Is ‘Justice League Dark’ Anyway? A Short Explainer

24 August 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In a big development for the still-young DC Extended Universe, we just learned that a live-action film version of the Justice League Dark is still happening after languishing in development hell for years and being absent from Warner Bros and DC’s big schedule. “Edge of Tomorrow” director Doug Liman is taking over the project from Guillermo del Toro, and the Dceu will soon have another big teamup movie in its lineup. But what the hell actually is Justice League Dark? We know the regular Justice League very well at this point, because it’s been around forever and features heroes that. »

Director Doug Liman drops 'Gambit' to jump into DC's 'Dark Universe'

24 August 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s starting to feel like there’s something very wrong with the Gambit movie. Is that fair? The thing’s gone through a number of different directors at this point, and it doesn’t feel like it’s any closer to actually happening. I’ve talked to directors who got close and then backed away, and I have yet to be able to pin down exactly what’s going on here. Considering this is a major release for Fox, it’s got Channing Tatum attached, and anything X-Men related is given pretty much any resources they need, it is shocking that it’s this hard to get a filmmaker to say yes to the job. Doug Liman is the latest guy to jump ship, and in his case, he’s got a pretty great plan B, one that I’ve been curious about since Guillermo Del Toro first mentioned it years ago. »

DC's Justice League Dark Movie Gets Edge of Tomorrow Director

24 August 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. still has a lot of confidence in their DC Comics movies, despite dreadful reviews for both Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Even with a full slate already announced for the next few years, the studio is working on even more projects for their DC Extended Universe. That being the case, it looks like Warner Bros. is finally moving ahead with a Justice League Dark movie, also known as http://movieweb.com/justice-league-dark-movie-story-production-start-date/Dark Universe, with director Doug Liman at the helm.

Variety broke the news on Wednesday, confirming that the Edge of Tomorrow director would be taking on the movie. According to the report, Scott Rudin, who has long been attached to the project, will be producing Justice League Dark, with Michael Gilio writing the script. Warner Bros. has yet to officially make the announcement, but Variety is confidently stating that this is indeed happening. »

Doug Liman drops Gambit to direct Justice League Dark

Well, it looks as if Gambit's troubled production continues as Doug Liman (The Edge Of Tomorrow, Mr. And Mrs. Smith) has left that film to go direct another comic book property, Justice League Dark. The name may sound familiar as Guillermo del Toro was attached to direct at one point in time (and is now listed as a producer). The story groups together some of DC's shadier heroes, such as John...

Justice League Dark: Doug Liman to direct

Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has signed up for Justice League Dark for Warner Bros, reports suggest...

Holy moley. We might finally get that Justice League Dark movie that's been in development within the DC Universe for years...

According to Variety, Edge Of Tomorrow's Doug Liman has signed on to direct the film, which will potentially feature the characters of John Constantine, Swamp Thing (please let Swamp Thing be in it), Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The project would be part of the DC Cinematic Universe from Warner Bros and DC Entertainment.

Though Warner Bros currently has no comment, the story confirms that Scott Rudin is producing and Michael Gilio is writing the script. Sources also suggest that this means Liman will not be directing the X-Men universe's Gambit starring Channing Tatum as part of a "mutual split" on the part of the studio and the director. »

Justice League Dark Gets A New Director

24 August 2016 11:54 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

WB has found a new director for Justice League Dark, find out who it is after the jump.

WB has announced that Doug Liman will be the new director of Justice League Dark. He is known for movies like Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Jumper. He previously worked with WB on Edge of Tomorrow.

The previous director that was lined up for the film was Guillermo del Toro, but he put the project aside as his line up filled up. This caused WB to seek a new director to take over the project. 

Justice League Dark is a darker squad of heroes that fight crime. The original line up of characters includes Det. John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. Though we are unsure if the studio might choose to change the team, similar to what happened with Suicide Squad. Michael Gilio is writing the script and it »

Doug Liman Takes Point On Justice League Dark, Reportedly No Longer Attached To Gambit

24 August 2016 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has agreed terms to helm Justice League Dark for Warner Bros. – at the expense of Gambit, it seems.

Injecting new life into the languishing superhero project, word of Liman’s appointment comes by way of Variety, revealing that this new interpretation of DC and Warner’s Dark Universe will be penned by Michael Gilio. It’s welcome news for fans of the cult supernatural property, though such a coup only portends trouble for the Channing Tatum-fronted Gambit spinoff, with sources close to Variety claiming that Liman has now departed the troubled X-Men spinoff.

Though 20th Century Fox offered no comment at the time of writing, that’s an amicable split that had been long in the cards, given that Liman has been quietly lining up additional projects beyond the mutant universe over the past few months, during which time Gambit was ordered to »

Newswire: Doug Liman drops Channing Tatum’s Gambit on his way to DC’s Dark Universe

24 August 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a move that seems especially appropriate for an adaptation about characters who frequently interact with the spookier side of DC comics, the long-in-the-works Justice League Dark movie has risen from its grave and taken on a new, more powerful form. As reported by Variety, the project is back on with Edge Of Tomorrow’s Doug Liman set to direct, and though Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment haven’t said anything official, the movie will reportedly revolve around classic DC heroes (or “heroes”) John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan. Variety is also referring to the film as Dark Universe instead of Justice League Dark, but it’s unclear how official that is.

For years, Guillermo Del Toro was working on a Justice League Dark movie, but like most of his projects, it eventually fizzled out. Then, just last month, DC officially announced an animated Justice League Dark movie »
