Steve McQueen and Gus Van Sant Expand Casts of Next Films

21 February 2017 6:07 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With it being nearly four years since Steve McQueen‘s last drama, the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, production is finally coming together on his follow-up, an adaptation of the crime drama Widows, based on the British television series. Co-scripted with Gone Girl‘s Gillian Flynn, the cast already includes Viola DavisCynthia Erivo, and André Holland, and now a few more actors have joined.

Following four widows who come together to finish a robbery after their crooked husbands are killed on the job, Fast and the Furious‘ Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.The Great Gatsby) have now rounded out the main cast. Intriguingly, Joe Walker, who has edited all of McQueen’s films thus far, has said he won’t be re-teaming with the director this time around, so perhaps we can expect a different feel for this genre outing.

The story is told from the perspective of the scientists who worked on the bomb, pilots in the war, and Japanese victims.

Erik Baiers, executive vice president of production at Universal, will oversee the project.

Cary Fukunaga Set To Send A ‘Shockwave’

17 February 2017 6:20 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cary Fukunaga has been spending the past few months rearranging the puzzle pieces of his directorial plans. Last fall, he dropped out of helming TNT‘s “The Alienist” (but stayed on as a producer) so he could turn his attention to “The Black Count,” but it looks like that project has stalled out. It was only a couple of weeks ago that he swung by Broadway to capture Jake Gyllenhaal singing in “Sunday In The Park With George,” and in August he’ll start filming Netflix‘s “Maniac“ starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.

Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

16 February 2017 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

As well as defending Gotham City from criminals, Batman must now face the challenge of raising the young boy he adopted.

As the hilarious trailer pointed out, Batman has appeared in many different incarnations and films over the last fifty years, but The Lego Batman Movie is the first one that’s out-and-out comedy since the days of Adam West (or arguably, George Clooney). Although technically a spin-off from 2015’s surprise smash The Lego Movie, there’s no real connection to that film’s world or narrative (apart »

Jack Black in Talks to Join Joaquin Phoenix in Gus Van Sant’s John Callahan Biopic

15 February 2017 4:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jack Black is in negotiations to co-star with Joaquin Phoenix in Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” the biopic on quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan.

Iconoclast and Anonymous Content are producing the film, which is based on Callahan’s autobiography of the same name. The title is taken from one of Callahan’s cartoons, which often touched on taboo topics.

Callahan became paralyzed following a car accident at the age of 21. He turned to art as a form of therapy, drawing by clutching a pen between his two hands. He died in 2010 at the age of 59.

Charles-Marie Anthonioz, Mourad Belkeddar, and Nicolas Lhermitte will produce the movie for Iconoclast, while Steve Golin produces for Anonymous Content.

Jonah Hill and Rooney Mara are also in talks to join “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.” Phoenix will portray Callahan.

The Weekend Warrior 2/17/17: Fist Fight, The Great Wall, A Cure for Wellness

15 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million.  Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday.

The Lrm Interview with Fist Fight’s Jillian Bell

14 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

There’s a very good chance that you’ll remember comedian and actress Jillian Bell from her memorable fist fight with Jonah Hill in 22 Jump Street or maybe you’ve had a chance to see her Comedy Central show, Idiotsitter.  

In the new comedy Fist Fight, Bell raises her comedy game even higher playing guidance counselor Holly, whose interests in meth and underage students doesn’t make her the best advice-giver for Charlie Day’s teacher, who finds himself having to face a fellow teacher played by the much tougher Ice Cube in a lopsided afterschool fight.

Bell really holds her own in scenes with Day and Tracy Morgan (as the school’s equally inappropriate gym teacher), which helps give the movie its rightfully-earned R-rating.

Lrm had a chance to talk with Ms. Bell from the Fist Fight junket a few weeks back.

Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

13 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

The sense of relief I felt watching The Lego Batman Movie cannot be underestimated. After 2016’s heavy, serious Batman v Superman this movie is the breath of fun fresh air that the Dark Knight has been calling out for. That’s not to say Batfleck doesn’t have his merits (he was –in my opinion – one of the only decent parts of Batman v Superman) but »

New to Streaming: ‘Manchester by the Sea,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ and More

10 February 2017 8:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Crimson Peak (Guillermo del Toro)

Crimson Peak works as many things: a melodramatic romance; both the recreation of a period and a revival of the way movies have made us perceive it; a genre-jumping comedy; and a critique of capitalistic excess. It does these things earnestly and without compromise, and it’s far braver — far more admirable — for having done so. What Guillermo del Toro’s new film doesn »

Second Opinion – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

10 February 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

If The Lego Movie is proof that not every terrible sounding Hollywood cash grab is a recipe for an unmitigated disaster focused on putting asses in seats over producing something of quality, then The Lego Batman Movie is confirmation that not every expansion of that phenomenal lightning in a bottle animated feature will result in diminishing returns along with a sensation of “been there, done that”.

“The Lego Batman Movie” is a surprising delight

9 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A lack of expectations can sometimes be a film’s secret weapon. It’s not that I thought The Lego Batman Movie would be bad, but it just wasn’t initially on my radar to any real degree. Go figure then, since this probably my favorite movie of 2017 so far. It works in a tremendous way. Opening this week, it hopes to be as beloved as The Lego Movie was back when it opened. Going by the response I saw last weekend when I viewed it at a press screening, Warner Brothers has absolutely nothing to worry about. This will be a surefire hit. The film is an animated action comedy following Batman (voice of Will Arnett) as he goes about his heroic ways. After an encounter with Joker (voice of Zach Galifianakis) and a huge assortment of cohorts that basically leaves Gotham City villain free temporarily, Batman/Bruce Wayne »

Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal Rehearses in Cary Fukunaga-Directed Video for ‘Sunday in the Park With George’

7 February 2017 2:15 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This August, Cary Fukunaga will finally step behind the camera again after Beasts of No Nation, this time returning to his television days, helming every episode of the Netflix series Maniac. A Superbad reunion for Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, they play patients in a mental institution that live out fantasy lives in their head, based on the Norwegian series from a few years back. While that project won’t arrive until 2018 at the earliest, we have a new, short project from the director.

Ahead of an opening later this month, the Jane Eyre director visited Jake Gyllenhaal on Broadway as he rehearses for the Stephen Sondheim musical Sunday in the Park With George. Captured in one long Birdman-esque take as the actor sings “Finishing the Hat” and walks towards the stage, it’s entertaining to see the Nightcrawler star flex a different muscle.

The Lego Batman Movie Screening and Q&A with Dan Lin and Chris McKay

Tai Freligh attended a special IMAX screening of The Lego Batman Movie followed by a Q&A with director Chris McKay and producer Dan Lin

I was lucky enough to win a screening of The Lego Batman Movie ahead of the theatrical release (through a partnership of IMAX and Collider.com) and watched it at the IMAX headquarters in Playa Vista, California on Monday night.  Seeing the movie in IMAX was incredible.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching this on the giant screen with rumbling sound.  It’s a gloriously loving roast of all things Batman and is well worth watching, with plenty for both adults and children to love.

Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

6 February 2017 4:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing tatum, Jonah Hill and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

And like that, the live-action DC universe is thrown back into the phantom zone, forlorn and gloomy, and it’s on something no bigger than a couple of inches to take the baton and run. And oh how it runs. To take Batman seriously takes a certain leap of faith; he’s a narcissistic playboy with »

Lego Batman Movie: Batman Will Be Going Up Against This Laundry List Of Baddies!

3 February 2017 3:18 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We have to admit, the ecosystem they created over at the Lego Movie land is quite the amazing one. Due to the nature of their licensing, they’re able to bring together more properties than you can shake a stick at. Heck, back in the original Lego Movie in 2014, they managed to introduce the Justice League to the big screen before the legit Justice League, which is still forthcoming later this year. Now, with The Lego Batman Movie, we’ll be getting an in-depth look at the lonely life of Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. the Batman.

While Batman is a pretty cool character in and of himself, he’s nothing without his rogues gallery of baddies. Perhaps more than any other superhero out there, Batman is known for his memorable villains that range from The Joker to Bane and Mr. Freeze. Given the very nature of the Lego Movie franchise, »
