Michael Keaton Talks Birdman, Working with Alejandro González Iñárritu and Emmanuel Lubezki, and More

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I love this time of year.  The weather starts to cool off.  Football games start to matter.  And Hollywood releases some incredible movies that will be in play during Award season.  Which brings me to Alejandro González Iñárritu’s incredible new film, Birdman.  Made to look like one long shot, Birdman stars Michael Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero, and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.  While some movies have incredible performances or a great script, Birdman is one of those rare films where everything across the board is memorable.  It's absolutely one of my favorite films of 2014 and it should be seen as soon as possible.  Trust me, this is a special movie that you want to see.  The film also stars Edward NortonNaomi WattsEmma Stone, »

Marvelous DA7E 68: The Next Six Years' 40 SuperMovies

20 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 68!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation. 

This Week: We're not done sighing and looking into the future this week as it becomes immediately apparent I'll be writing these weekly columns about superhero movies until I die in the zombie apocalypse, which I'll hate because Walking Dead is over-rated garbage. That plus: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shows Marvel's only progressive win.

I guess it’s best to start at the beginning for this week, and the beginning is the long view.

You and many others have probably stumbled across the infographic created by Comics Alliance’s graphic designer Dylan Todd who consolidated the upcoming slate of superhero movies over the next few years.

Sure, all of these entries might not be as exciting as the others.

Melissa McCarthy Discusses Ghostbusters Reboot

21 October 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

When it was announced that Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) will be directing the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot and that it will focus on a female team, it was immediately assumed that Melissa McCarthy would be one of the Ghostbusters. McCarthy is not only one of the most successful comediennes in Hollywood today, but she has done a total of three films with Feig. So if anyone is going to be cast in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, it will likely be McCarthy. The actress recently appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she revealed that she has yet to be cast. The other guest on the show, Lena Dunham, explained how important the "Ghostbusters" reboot is to Hollywood actresses. "I have to say, since I've heard that rumor, I think every lady in town who fancies herself a jokester wants in." McCarthy currently co-stars with Bill Murray in "St. Vincent." Not long ago, »

Ellen DeGeneres and Lena Dunham Want to Be 'Ghostbusters'

20 October 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Melissa McCarthy and Girls creator/star Lena Dunham both appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier today, where host Ellen DeGeneres suggested that they all be cast in the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters that Paul Feig is directing. After Ellen made the initial suggestion, Lena Dunham had this to say.

"I have to say, since I've heard that rumor I think every lady in town who fancies herself a jokester wants in."

After rumors of an all-female Ghostbusters started popping up last month, original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray suggested that his St. Vincent co-star Melissa McCarthy be cast, along with Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. It was announced earlier this month that Paul Feig is officially directing an all-female version of Ghostbusters, which lead to The X-Files star Gillian Anderson expressing her interest in the project last week.

Of course, no one has been officially cast yet, but »

Oscars: ‘Birdman’ Flew Sky High In Theaters, But How Did It Play With Academy Voters?

20 October 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

There can be no question that one of this year’s most anticipated films, Oscar-wise, flew high in its limited platform break at the box office this weekend. With an estimate exceeding $400,ooo at just four theatres in NY and La, the $103,000-per-screen figure indicates strong want-to-see on the coasts. I had expected this totally unique and original film, with its orgiastic critical and Venice/Telluride/NY film fest response and general must-see status, would be huge on its first break. And since both NY and La are full of industry players, that bodes well for the awards future of the film.

So how did it do with Oscar voters? Well, it also played a fifth cinema on Sunday, the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, where it had its “official” Academy screening to a nearly packed auditorium of what is estimated by several attendees at about 90% capacity. Most told »

'Birdman' (2014) Movie Review

20 October 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Once Birdman starts it doesn't stop until the film runs out and even then its energy seems to bleed into your veins as you exit the theater. It's a story of actors and the stage, artists and their critics. It's about the desire to be somebody as much as it's the fear of being a nobody. It tells of a world where artists are no longer recognized for their talent, but instead for the larger-than-life characters (literal and figurative) they play. Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is one such artist. Years ago, Riggan played Birdman in a trilogy of big budget, billion dollar blockbusters. The franchise was a massive hit and he turned down a lot of money for Birdman 4. Now he finds himself at his wits end, quite literally haunted by the character that made him famous while at the same time attempting to become the actor he's always dreamed of being. »

Are Ellen DeGeneres, Melissa McCarthy and Lena Dunham the New Ghostbusters?

20 October 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ellen DeGeneres is throwing her name in the ring for 'Ghostbusters 3.'

Ellen DeGeneres is taking it upon herself to cast the new Ghostbusters 3 -- and this trio isn't too far off from some of our casting picks.

Bridesmaids actress Melissa McCarthy and Girls star Lena Dunham joined Ellen on her Monday show and the daytime host took the opportunity to pitch the movie to the funny women. "The three of us, I think we should maybe do Ghostbusters together or something like that," Ellen told the women.

Turning to Melissa, Ellen said, "I think you’re in already." Despite some prying on both Ellen and Lena's part to get the actress to confess she's already been cast in the sequel, Melissa denied the claims several times, saying, "I’m not in. I’m not it!"

Lena, however, is all for being a Ghostbuster. "I have to »

This Week on Stage: New York, New York – a helluva 'Town'

The randy sailors of On the Town are back in the Big Apple, and taking up permanent residence at the newly-renamed Lyric Theatre (where the beleaguered Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark was the previous tenant), with lots of dancing boys and girls courtesy of Smash's acclaimed choreographer Joshua Bergasse (keep your eyes peeled to EW.com for a future feature on him, by the way). In other news, "Big" Al Pacino is coming back to Broadway next fall in a brand-new play written expressly for him by master wordsmith David Mamet, about a billionaire taking a fateful phone call before semi-retirement. »

50th Chicago International Film Festival Review – Birdman (2014)

20 October 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Birdman. 2014

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

Starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Stone, Amy Ryan, Andrea Riseborough and Naomi Watts

Synopsis:

A washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero must overcome his ego and family trouble as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory.

There might not be a more meta film in existence than Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest film Birdman. There is the obvious selling point of the film in that Michael Keaton – famous in real life for portraying Batman yet recently finding himself accepting a load of crappy projects – playing Riggan Thomson, a washed up Hollywood actor that society most associates with Birdman, but the mimicking of reality actually goes even further down the rabbit hole. Edward Norton’s Broadway performance art actor character Mike is a total prick to everyone on-set, and if you go do some »

Birdman's Gonzalez Iñárritu: 'Superhero films are cultural genocide'

20 October 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu has called superhero films "cultural genocide".

The filmmaker warned about the philosophy of the genre and the values that he perceives such movies to promote.

"I sometimes enjoy them because they are basic and simple and go well with popcorn," Gonzalez Iñárritu told Deadline.

"The problem is that sometimes they purport to be profound, based on some Greek mythological kind of thing. And they are honestly very right wing.

"I always see them as killing people because they do not believe in what you believe, or they are not being who you want them to be. I hate that, and don't respond to those characters.

"They have been poison, this cultural genocide, because the audience is so overexposed to plot and explosions and s**t that doesn't mean [anything] about the experience of being human.

"If you observe the mentality of most of those films, it's »

Brad Pitt's Fury and Michael Keaton's Birdman Top Box Office

19 October 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career. The new movie, co-starring Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend. The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating. The »

‘Birdman’ Astounds in Limited Box Office Debut, But How High Can It Fly?

19 October 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Birdman” soared at the arthouses this weekend with the show business satire enjoying a smashing debut that could help it travel beyond the cinephile crowd.

The quirky comedy from Fox Searchlight picked up $415,000 in just four theaters, making it the year’s second-highest grossing film from a per-screen average standpoint. Its average of $103,750 is behind only “The Grand Budapest Hotel’s” $202,792 number.

“When the numbers started coming in on Friday, we all went ‘wow,'” said Frank Rodriguez, senior vice president of distribution at Searchlight. “We were seeing all the seats fill up. There’s so many films out there. So many holdovers and so many new films, that it’s hard to get the seats you need.”

In order to meet the demand, Searchlight will expand “Birdman” beyond New York and Los Angeles to 18 markets and between 40 and 50 theaters. Within three to four weeks, it hopes to have the film in between 400 and 600 theaters. »

Thoughts I Had... The "Big Eyes" Poster

19 October 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We finally have a poster for Tim Burton's Big Eyes. Herewith some thoughts as they came to me.

• "Visionary Director" would be so much more impressive as a description if it weren't so overused.

• "Big Eyes" could well describe lots of celebrities: Emma Stone, Amanda Seyfried, Marty Feldman*, Heather Graham, Jake Gyllenhaal, Susan Sarandon, Anne Hathaway, Sailor Moon.

Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams have Normal-Sized Eyes but that will never be a film title. The only person in this cast with gargantuan eyeballs is Krysten Ritter

• The tag line is basic but it does cleverly have a double meaning with the last bit "... and everyone bought it" 

• A lot of people seem to be sure that this one won't be a major Oscar player but apart from test screenings (a notoriously unreliable source of info) no one has seen it so it's one of our mystery movies when it »
