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. »

And just like that new Tom Hiddleston and Sandra Bullock flicks are headed to Toronto

18 August 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins.  While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening.  Especially when it's your 40th anniversary.  Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

Scott Speedman Discovers There Are Monsters

18 August 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Having himself played a hybrid of a vampire and a werewolf in the Underworld films, Scott Speedman is well placed to join the cast of There Are Monsters. Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) is directing, and has also signed up  Aaron Douglas, Zoe Kazan and Ella Ballentine for the cast.Details so far are sketchy, but the plot of the film centres on "a mother and daughter trapped and tormented by a ruthless creature". It's probably safe to assume that Kazan and Ballentine are, respectively, the mother and daughter. But all we know about Speedman and Douglas are that their characters are called Roy and Jesse. Do either of those sound like the name of a ruthless creature?Bertino brought us the impressive The Strangers in 2008, but this is only the second time he's directed since, following Mockingbird, which went straight to DVD here in the UK. He wrote an interesting-sounding »

Scott Speedman to Co-Star in Bryan Bertino’s There Are Monsters

18 August 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Over seven years after collaborating for The Strangers, Scott Speedman will reunite with writer/director Bryan Bertino for the creature feature There Are Monsters.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Speedman (Underworld), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica) and Ella Ballentine (The Captive) will co-star in Bertino's There Are Monsters, which is currently in production. The trio join a cast that includes Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks).

Elisabeth Moss was at one time lined up to star in There Are Monsters, but she's no longer involved in Bertino's latest, which "focuses on a mother and daughter who are trapped and tormented by a ruthless creature." A24 has slated There Are Monsters for a 2016 release. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

“Our Brand is Crisis” starring Sandra Bullock could be an Oscar season X factor

4 August 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For a while now, I’ve been including Our Brand is Crisis high up in my predictions, perhaps to the confusion of some. I don’t blame anyone who wonders why a film they’ve probably barely heard of warrants the attention that I’ve given it. Well, for me, I like to try and run with my hunches, and one such hunch was that this political dramedy from David Gordon Green that stars Sandra Bullock had a chance as a dark horse or X factor. For a few months, I’d waited to see if it would be a 2015 or 2016 release, but in the past week or two, word has come down from Warner Brothers that not only is it coming out this year, it’s got an Oscar friendly release date as well. As such, I thought it was time to discuss this one a bit. This is »

Emmys exclusive: Which episodes are submitted by Limited Series Supporting Actress nominees?

29 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

For the first time in Emmys history, the academy has decided this year that the supporting nominees from limited series must choose specific episodes to submit to judges. (Nominated performers from TV movies will continue to submit the entire project.) This is true only for the supporting nominees and not for the lead contenders.

Bullock's 'Crisis' Dated, Oscar Predictions Updated

27 July 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has officially dated David Gordon Green's political thriller Our Brand is Crisis starring Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton for a Oct. 30 release date, just ahead of tomorrow's Toronto Film Festival lineup being announced. Coincidencec Not likely, though I could just be hopefully optimistic. The film is an adaptation of the 2005 documentary of the same name, which follows a group of American consultants who accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected. Bullock plays maverick political consultant, "Calamity" Jane Bodine, who comes out of retirement to lead the team, while Thornton portrays her nemesis, Pat Candy. Zoe Kazan, Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Ann Dowd and Joaquim de Almeida co-star. As far as Oscar predictions are concerned, I previously neglected to include Bullock on my list of Best Actress contenders, a shameful enough move that she's now debuting in my #5 slot as I shuffled the deck »

Big Significant Things | Review

24 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eager Yet Flawed: Indie Darling is Safe-Guarded and Traditional

Brian Reisberg‘s debut feature has many of the usual markings of an indie sleeper hit but like an overzealous student whose hand is always first in the air, the rule-abiding road movie delivers all the correct answers, too determined to please. Relying heavily on both the traditional, and the familiar, the premise behind Big Significant Things does hold plenty of promise, and when boiled down, the protagonist, conflict, and plot points all recall rather than reinvent (think Garden State).

Twenty-something Craig Harrison (Harry Lloyd of Manhattan and The Theory of Everything), who fits neatly within the mold of a typical White male with early-onset ennui, attempts to temper his quarter-life crisis through a solo road trip across the South. Fleeing from the looming decision of purchasing a home in San Francisco (perhaps the most unrealistic part of the film) with »

Watch: Trailer For Webseries ‘The Walker’ Starring Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Gabourey Sidibe & More

22 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With so many streaming outlets now available, it seems everyone on the web wants to launch their own arm of original programming. And so it goes with lifestyle site Refinery29 who have rounded up a pretty starry ensemble for their webseries "The Walker" (which isn't to be confused with the Paul Schrader film of the same name). Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Gabourey Sidibe, and more feature in the show that will follow a real life celebrity bestie (apparently) Rightor Doyle, in a scripted version of what he encounters day-to-day. “'The Walker' is an exploration of how friendships can be the most loving, confounding and rewarding relationships in your life,” he told Et. “It is my love letter to women, and to New York, and to friendship in all its many wild and wonderful forms.” I dunno, sounds like "Look At My Fabulous Life: The Show," but we'll see. »

The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations

16 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.

HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).

With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »
