Exclusive: Dave Franco discusses The Room movie The Masterpiece

4 July 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis to promote the release of Now You See Me 2, actor Dave Franco offered up some comments on The Masterpiece (formerly titled The Disaster Artist), James Franco’s upcoming retelling of the making of the cult classic The Room.

“We’re still shocked that anyone let us make this movie based on The Room,” states Franco. “I saw a cut of it recently and I’m very hard on myself, but it turned out good. It really did. It’s a tough tone to pull off, it’s comedic but it’s also very tragic, and you want to do the whole story justice, you want to do these characters justice. You don’t want to poke fun at them, you want to play it straight, and my brother who plays Tommy Wiseau could win many, many awards for this.”

See Also: Read our review of Central Intelligence here

The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high-school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.

Central Intelligence is out now and features a cast that also includes Aaron Paul, »

Making Daddy’s Home, competing against Star Wars and working with Will Ferrell – Sean Anders interview

4 May 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis sat down with Sean Anders to talk about Daddy’s Home, out now on Blu-Ray and DVD…

Note: This interview was conducted before the sequel to Daddy’s Home was announced…

Sd: Congratulations on the success of the film – you went up against Star Wars and put up a very good fight. Were you nervous at all opening around the same time considering its huge opening?

Sa: I wouldn’t say nervous, I would say more like terrified – I was kind of driving everybody crazy leading up to the opening just because I knew Star Wars was going to be huge, I was excited for Star Wars. So we just had no idea how we were going to bid into that crazy market but it worked out great and we’re obviously thrilled.

Are you surprised at the huge success the film had at the box office? »

This is the opening weekend of Captain America: Civil War in the UK, yet the main story is: what in the Extended Universe is going on at DC?

Lightening first struck on Friday afternoon, when director Seth Grahame-Smith departed DC’s The Flash over everyone’s go-to reason for leaving anything: “creative differences”.

Here, ‘creative differences’ are visually represented in a giant fist.

Shortly after, rumours began to circulate that James Wan, »

We are nearly ready for Captain America: Civil War – yes, the biggest film in Marvel’s cinematic universe thus far is only days away and Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis was at today’s press conference, which was attended by directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Marvel’s lead producer and head-honcho Kevin Feige as well as stars (deep breath) Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Daniel Bruhl, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp and Paul Bettany.

With the amount of talent on show at the conference, it was impossible to get everyone talking for any length of time but there were some choice snippets, with some particular attention paid to a certain webslinger who appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the very first time. As Spider-Man, Tom Holland wowed everyone with his take on the character, with Downey saying: “He’s really not a work-in-progress, »

Scooperhero News – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might be making a lot of money, but it isn’t making the amount of money it needs to be making at this point in its release. Which makes sense if you read it slowly. Warner Bros. have “no concerns” though. They’re too busy adding more DC movies to their release slate and reshooting Suicide Squad to make it more fun. Also, despite being heavily teased, it looks like Justice League won’t feature Darkseid. Also, also, Doctor Strange news, what will Spider-Man’s solo movie be called and yet another milestone for Deadpool.

Batman & Superman: Dawn of Love

After almost three years of waiting since the film’s announcement at San Diego Comic Con 2013, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is finally in cinemas.

I rather took against it.

In this image, the viewer is Superman’s face and the film is Batman’s boot.

The general critical consensus agrees – with both Scott Davis and Robert Kojder’s Flickering Myth reviews expressing similar disappointment, »

The five best roles of Oscar Isaac

24 March 2016 4:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his new film Mojave set for release in the UK tomorrow (Friday March 25th), we take a look back at some of the work of the great Oscar Isaac, arguably the best working actor in Hollywood right now…

Up until mega-blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens you could very well be forgiven for asking, ‘Who is Oscar Isaac?’ Since then it’s more likely to be ‘Where can I see more Oscar Isaac?’ The talented 36-year-old, Guatemalan born leading man has won a lot of hearts in the last few years. His early roles had a tendency to leave him lurking in the background, simmering with intensity in films such as Drive. But more recently his immense charisma has positioned him as leading man or chief bad guy. And as new La psycho-thriller Mojave hits cinemas, we take a look at the performances that led him to where he is today. »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cast respond to negative reviews

24 March 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s fair to say that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn’t got off to the best of starts when it comes to reviews. Scott Davis gave it two stars in his review here at Flickering Myth (Oli Davis hated it) and on Rotten Tomatoes its currently got a worse score than The Room. So, what do the cast make of the critical response to Warner’s big DC ensemble?

“What is going to really matter, I believe, is what the audience says,” Henry Cavill tells Yahoo. “Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story, or not. So the audience’s voice is loudest, and after this weekend, the audience will at least partly have spoken.”

Ben Affleck agreed with Cavill, while Amy Adams said the film wasn’t made “for the critics »
