Batman: Gotham By Gaslight animated movie gets a trailer, cover art and cast

IGN has revealed a trailer for the DC Universe Animated Original Movie Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, the upcoming adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s 1989 one-shot of the same name; check it out below…

“An adaptation of the popular 1989 tale that introduced us to a Victorian Era Dark Knight who was in pursuit of Jack the Ripper. Written by Brian Augustyn and drawn by Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame, Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is largely considered to be the very first “Elseworlds” tale. At 48 pages, the original comic is relatively slim, meaning the movie version will offer an expanded version of the story, something that’s sure to delight fans of its cobblestone-paved world.”

Update: Here a look at the cover artwork…

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is set for a home entertainment release in 2018 and features a voice cast that includes Bruce greenwood as Batman, Jennifer Carpenter as Selina

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Trailer Promises An Awesome Animated Outing

DC’s Elseworlds series were some of my favorite comics as a kid. Why would I want to get wrapped up in the stodgy, never-ending plots of Death and Return of Superman or Knightfall when I could enjoy Batman becoming a vampire in Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, a Communist Superman in Red Son or the weird alt-dc Universe of Jla: The Nail?

The originator of this label was Brian Augustin and Mike Mignola’s excellent Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which transposes Bruce Wayne/Batman to the late 19th century and has him tangle with Jack the Ripper (and was subsequently ranked as the 11th greatest Batman graphic novel of all-time by IGN). Clearly, someone at DC agrees with me, because 2018 will see the arrival of an animated adaptation of the story and, from the looks of the trailer above, it’s going to be awesome.

Apparently hewing pretty close to the original,

Gotham by Gaslight Trailer Has Batman Fighting Jack the Ripper

Gotham by Gaslight Trailer Has Batman Fighting Jack the Ripper
The first trailer for the animated adaptation of Batman: Gotham by Gaslight has arrived. It's taken the live-action DC universe a little while to truly find its footing, but, a few missteps aside, the animated DC movies have been truly terrific for a very long time. The next animated DC adventure has Batman facing off against Jack the Ripper at the turn of the century and it's going to be a bloody, action-packed, R-rated adventure.

Warner Bros. confirmed during San Diego Comic-Con that Gotham by Gaslight was going to be the next classic DC story to get the animated movie treatment. While this is just a teaser trailer, it looks like director Sam Liu has done something that looks to be pretty faithful to the source material. It certainly gives us a version of Batman we haven't seen on screen before, animated or otherwise. It looks like this could be

S. Craig Zahler interview: Brawl In Cell Block 99, Bone Tomahawk

Simon Brew Oct 20, 2017

Writer/director S. Craig Zahler talks to us about his films, his approach, and Ridley Scott adapting his work…

I loved Brawl In Cell Block 99, the second feature film from novelist and filmmaker S. Craig Zahler. His first? Bone Tomahawk. I love that too, for the record. Zahler already feels like a very different voice in American film, a man content for his budgets to be low and control over his material to be high.

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Don Johnson, Marc Blucas, Tom Guiry, Udo Kier, Rob Morgan, Geno Segers, Fred Melamed | Written and Directed by S. Craig Zahler

The second feature from Bone Tomahawk writer/director S. Craig Zahler, stylishly executed, ultra-violent prison flick Brawl in Cell Block 99 features a revelatory performance from Vince Vaughn that will make you see the actor in a whole new light.

Vaughn plays Bradley Thomas, a scary-looking recovering alcoholic with a shaved head and a big old crucifix tattooed onto the back of it. When Bradley winds up in prison after a spot of drug-running goes south, he’s visited by a sleazy henchman (Udo Kier) and given an ultimatum: he has to get himself transferred to a nearby maximum security prison and murder an inmate there or horrible things will happen to his kidnapped wife (Jennifer Carpenter) and unborn child.

Celebrities Respond to Eminem's Anti-Trump Freestyle Rap

Celebrities Respond to Eminem's Anti-Trump Freestyle Rap
Eminem decimated Donald Trump during a freestyle rap that was shown at the Bet Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday evening and it has gained some praise from the entertainment industry and scorn from Trump supporters. It's safe to say that the Detroit rapper does not have any Trump supporters in his corner after the passionate and frustrated anti-Trump freestyle rap went viral. As it turns out, that was exactly Eminem's intent, he made it abundantly clear that if his fans support Donald Trump, that he doesn't want them to be his fans any longer.

The anti-Trump freestyle is entitled "The Storm," which is a reference to Donald Trump's vague comments about the "calm before the storm" that he made late last week. Many believe that Trump is inching us closer to World War III every day and view his comments about the "calm" to be in direct reference to conflict with North Korea.

‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’ Director S. Craig Zahler on Casting Vince Vaughn and Realistic Violence

In Brawl in Cell Block 99, Vince Vaughn, after finding out his wife is having an affair, assaults her car in a fashion that would remind anyone who owned a Sega Genesis or Super Nes in the 90s of a bonus stage in Street Fighter II. Vaughn, who is mostly known for his roles in broad comedies, including the likes of Wedding Crashers and Old School, plays Bradley Thomas, a no-nonsense, towering figure with a large, black cross tattooed on the back of his head. Thomas runs drugs to support his wife Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter) who is pregnant with their first child, who they adorably refer to as “The Koala.”

He works for a dealer named Gil, who is working on developing a partnership with a Mexican dealer. Thomas is skeptical when Gil persuades him with time off after the birth of his daughter. The run goes bad and the Mexican dealer,

Brawl in Block Cell Block 99, 2017.

Written and Directed by S. Craig Zahler.

Starring Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Udo Kier, Don Johnson, and Marc Blucas.

Synopsis:

A former boxer-turned-drug runner lands in a prison battleground after a deal gets deadly.

Shortly after being laid off from his position as an auto mechanic, Bradley comes home (American flag proudly waived out front) where his wife Laureen confesses that she has been having an affair for a few months.

'Brawl in Cell Block 99' Review: Vince Vaughn Gets Nasty in Brutal, Batshit Prison Flick
Say "Vince Vaughn," and what's the first image that comes up? His "you're so money" suit-wearing Swingers alpha male? His heroic environmentalist-slash-shutterbug in the first Jurassic Park sequel? Maybe your go-to Vaughn is The Break-Up–era bloated version that graced tabloid covers and Jennifer Aniston's beach pics, or the smarmy comic Casanova of Wedding Crashers? Forget those other Vinces. Whenever someone says the actor's name, you'll now see a glowering, menacing hulk of a man, one with a tattoo of a cross on the back of his shorn skull
