Ben Affleck Is Inspired to Reboot the 'Batman' Franchise

19 January 2016 12:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in June, just before Comic-Con 2015 got under way, a report surfaced that claimed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck, who plays The Dark Knight, had been set to both star in and direct a solo Batman Reboot, which Warner Bros. was eyeing for release in 2018. The report was never confirmed, but just a few weeks later, another report surfaced that claimed he's not only directing and starring in a Batman reboot, but that he's co-writing the script with DC Comics' chief creative officer Geoff Johns. We still haven't gotten any official word on this project from Warner Bros., but the actor-director recently spoke to USA Today, where he revealed that working with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder "inspired" him.

"I'll just say going through the process, I would never have imagined that I could or would direct a movie like this. »

First Live By Night Set Photos Send Zoe Saldana And Ben Affleck Back To The Roaring ’20s

19 January 2016 6:30 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production on Ben Affleck’s next directorial effort Live By Night may have taken some time to ease into motion – that ol’ DC Expanded Universe is a time consumer, after all – but we’re finally beginning to see the first evidence that the actor-cum-director’s project is starting to take shape.

Case in point: today’s batch of set photos that have emerged from the film’s Californian set. Sending Affleck and his co-star Zoe Saldana back to the roaring ’20s, the film is based on Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime epic of the same name, set during a time when the bullets were flying and the liquor was flowing.

Headlining the drama as Joe Coughlin, Affleck steps into the shoes of a conniving trickster who shuns life in a decorated police family for a career on the streets, engaging in petty crimes and nine kinds »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #16. Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon

13 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Neon Demon

Director: Nicolas Winding Refn

Writers: Mary Laws, Nicolas Winding Refn

Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, who has since attained cult status thanks to the success of 2011’s Drive (which snagged a Best Director award at Cannes), struck divisive chords with his 2013 follow-up Only God Forgives, which was booed at Cannes and resulted in a documentary about the experience the following year from Refn’s wife, Liv Corfixen (My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn). In a response to critiques of misogyny in his narratives, Refn returns with the Los Angeles set The Neon Demon, a femme centric horror film written by Mary Laws and co-financed by Wild Bunch and Gaumont (explaining its eligibility for our foreign films list). Starring a notable cast consisting of Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves and Refn favorite Christina Hendricks, the director describes it as a ‘horror film about vicious beauty,’ concerning »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #32. John Cameron Mitchell’s How to Talk to Girls at Parties

11 January 2016 2:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Director: John Cameron Mitchell

Writers: Philippa Goslett, John Cameron Mitchell

This year marks the welcome return of John Cameron Mitchell with How to Talk to Girls at Parties. His latest is a sci-fi period piece about an alien going through a mysterious rite of passage and how meeting two young inhabitants of 1970s London suburb Croyden potentially changes her destiny (and this is based on a short story by Neil Gaiman). Mitchell casts Elle Fanning and collaborates once again with Nicole Kidman, who headlined his last feature, 2010’s Rabbit Hole. This sounds like Mitchell’s most fantastical effort since his iconic 2001 debut, Hedwig and the Angry Inch—so we’re equally enthused for a soundtrack aiming to invent a new genre of music termed ‘extraterrestrial dance’ in the A24 release.

Cast: Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, Matt Lucas

6 January 2016 5:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production set to begin later this month in Montreal, the cast is coming together for Miramax's long-awaited sequel Bad Santa 2. Deadline reports that Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has joined the cast, portraying a new character who runs a charitable organization. While not specified in the site's report, it's possible that she could be the new love interest for Billy Bob Thornton's Willie Soke.

The Bad Santa 2 cast also includes Kathy Bates, who portrays Willie Soke's mother, described as a "foul-mouthed" woman. Tony Cox (Marcus) and Brett Kelly (The Kid) will also reprise their roles from the original Bad Santa, but it isn't known if others such as Lauren Graham or Lauren Tom will be back for this follow-up. No story details have been released at this point, but hopefully we'll learn more as production gets under way.

Cinelinx's Most Anticipated Films of 2016

4 January 2016 12:54 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

8 original sci-fi films to look forward to in 2016

4 January 2016 9:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

google+

Among the sequels and reboots, there are also some exciting-looking original sci-fi films to look forward to in 2016. And here they are...

Did you see Coherence? Or maybe Predestination? They’re but two examples of relatively low-budget, original genre films that were both beautifully made and endlessly watchable. What they lacked in expensive special effects they more than made up for in mesmerising concepts and superb performances, whether it was from a cast of relative unknowns in Coherence or the perfect pairing of Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook in Predestination.

Only time will tell whether 2016 will play host to films as good as those, but we have to say, there are some potentially great sci-fi films on the horizon this year. Some have generous budgets and top-line casts, others are independently produced. For different reasons, all look well worth keeping an eye on...
