From Dusk Till Dawn: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”

24 August 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »

Rumor: Is George Miller Going From ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ To ‘Man Of Steel 2?’

21 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A little less than a decade ago, George Miller was within a hair’s breadth of directing a DC Comics movie — “Justice League Mortal,” a big budget take on Superman, Batman, et al. In 2007, Miller got as far as building sets in Australia, and cast all the major roles, with D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, and Jay Baruchel as the villain, Maxwell Lord.  The movie was cancelled shortly before production got underway due to various factors, but it appears that fresh from “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Miller might be getting another chance to make his superhero movie. John Schnepp, the director of “The Death Of Superman Lives” (a documentary about Tim Burton’s earlier unmade DC Comics movie) was a guest on the DC Movie News Show (via Latino Review), and states that »

TV Review: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,’ Season 2

21 August 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the maiden season of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” served a clear purpose – giving a signature, recognizable franchise to the fledgling El Rey Network – it’s hard to make much of a case for an encore. Yes, the show continues with a mix of characters old and new, but whatever novelty there was has worn off, leaving little worth digesting for all but true genre connoisseurs and diehard fans of director Robert Rodriguez and/or the cultish original. Some fresh star power (Esai Morales, Danny Trejo) can’t escape the sense this show has been kept alive past its expiration date.

Granted, there was room for skepticism in certain quarters (including this one) whether the 1996 movie, a staple on latenight cable, cried out to be adapted and expanded into series form in the first place, cashing in on the equity in a title that had already spawned cheapo sequels. »

George Miller's 'Justice League' Documentary May Not Happen

20 August 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, we reported that filmmaker Ryan Unicomb is putting together a documentary that examines director George Miller's unmade 2008 superhero movie Justice League Mortal. The director has already secured private funding for the documentary, which is described as, "an unbiased account of the project's development, preproduction and cancellation, as well as the impact on the Australian film industry." We haven't heard anything about the project since then, and it seems there is one major obstacle standing in the filmmakers' way: Warner Bros. Pictures.

The director has contacted Warner Bros. Pictures, seeking permission to use their characters and images in the documentary, which is entitled Miller's Justice League Mortal. In an interview with If.com.au, Ryan Unicomb reveals that the whole project essentially hinges on Warner Bros.' approval. Here's what the filmmaker had to say, revealing that director George Miller and his producing partner Doug Mitchell are aware of his film. »

That Justice League: Mortal Doc Has One Thing Standing In Its Way

20 August 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back in May we heard about Ryan Unicomb and producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell's plans to get a documentary focusing on George Miler's defunct Justice League movie off the ground. Like the recent The Death of Superman Lives doc, it would take a behind-the-scenes look at the production and ultimately what led to it being shut down. The project already has producers, writers, and private investors on board, and recently Unicomb was able to secure the services of Indiegogo to help with a crowd funding campaign - but they still need the go ahead from Warner Bros. Though preliminary research has already begun (the doc's Twitter account has even shared some concept art), unless they get the studio's permission to use the various costume designs, Bts stills and shots of the cast - which included the likes of Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, »

"Justice League" Doco Seeks Warners Blessing

18 August 2015 10:11 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the more anticipated unofficial projects in the works is budding Australian filmmaker Ryan Unicomb's upcoming "Miller's Justice League Mortal," a documentary about the rise and collapse of "Mad Max" helmer George Miller's "Justice League Mortal" project several years ago.

The film is still a long way from full production as various hurdles have to be cleared, and the chief one is about to hit. If Magazine reports that the filmmakers have formally pitched Warner Bros. Pictures in an effort to use characters and images from the project.

Unicomb says: "It's a nervous wait. George Miller and [his producing partner] Doug Mitchell know about the project, so now it all hangs on Warner Bros' involvement." It appears Miller and Mitchell's contributions will only come with a sign off from Warners.

Should it go ahead though, it's hoped some of the would have been film's stars like Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona »

Warner Bros. Still Needs To Sign Off On Documentary 'Justice League Mortal' About George Miller's Abandoned Film

18 August 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this spring, comic book enthusiasts and fans of movie making got some pretty good news: director Ryan Unicomb revealed he was putting together the documentary "Miller's Justice League Mortal," which would explore George Miller's scrapped "Justice League Mortal." But there are still a lot of hurdles to clear, and there's one big one that seems could make or break the whole endeavor.  If reports, that the filmmakers have formally pitched Warner Bros., hoping to gain permission to use the characters and images from Miller's movie. “It’s a nervous wait,” the director said. “George Miller and [his producing partner] Doug Mitchell know about the project, so now it all hangs on Warner Bros’ involvement.” Indeed, it seems Miller and Mitchell will only contribute to the documentary with the sign off from WB, and Unicomb hopes that the studio's blessing will also allow him to approach Armie Hammer (Batman), D.J. Cotrona (Superman) and Megan. »
