With little over a month until The Caped Crusader’s anticipated return, Rocksteady’s marketing campaign for Batman: Arkham Knight is beginning to reach its almighty crescendo. After detailing the threequel’s intriguing Dual Play mechanic last week, the studio has given Gotham the live-action treatment in the latest trailer, giving the franchise’s ardent fanbase an opportunity to “Be the Batman.”
Playing out from different perspectives across the crime-ridden city, the footage essentially runs down the characteristics of The Word’s Greatest Detective: Selfless, determined, courageous and feared. And while it’s all very over-the-top and not indicative of the final product, it’s still a neat package to garner excitement for Arkham Knight‘s debut in a month’s time.
Billed as the conclusive chapter in Rocksteady’s acclaimed series, Batman: Arkham Knight will orbit around a villainous army of crooks assembled by Jonathan Crane’s Scarecrow; a »

Colin Hanks, Fred Savage, Ashley Greene and Kevin Pollak came together to celebrate “Mad Men” on Sunday night in downtown Los Angeles, staging a live reading of the drama’s very first season finale before screening the final episode at the Ace Hotel. “I say we lock the doors and Matthew Weiner doesn’t get to leave until we get a few more seasons,” moderator Jason Reitman joked at the start of the program. The episode, which was read with original cast members Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss and John Slattery was titled “The Wheel,” and included the now-legendary monologue from Hamm’s Don Draper, »

Though many assumed it signalled the introduction of co-op support at first, Rocksteady’s novel Dual Play mechanic allows players to control multiple characters throughout the course of combat in Batman: Arkham Knight, and it’s a feature that takes center stage in the threequel’s latest trailer.
Starring Batman and Nightwing, the footage comes as part of the studio’s Arkham Insider video series. Before today, the creative team merely hinted at the aforementioned mechanic, but now, they’re diving in unabated. Narrated by Lead AI Programmer Tim Hanagan, the video showcases the ways in which players will be able to team up with fellow crime fighters in order to execute powerful double takedowns. The Arkham series is lauded for its excellent, overly satisfying fighting system, and we’re hoping this novel addition only bolsters that reputation.
Batman: Arkham Knight may have persevered through two lengthy delays, but Rocksteady »

Rocksteady’s trilogy-capping Batman: Arkham Knight may be drawing attention for its intriguing gameplay changes and bleeding-edge visuals, but the studio has today revealed the voice cast that will be bringing a number of memorable characters to life from behind the pixels.

Joe Dante has to be one of our favourite underrated directors. The man brought Gremlins to the big screen as well as its sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, a film I watched far too much as a young child. He’s also responsible for The Howling, The ‘Burbs, Innerspace and the cult television classic Eerie Indiana.
His last big screen outing was the ridiculously creepy kids film The Hole. Don’t confuse it with the Thora Birch, Keira Knightley teen thriller, Dante’s film saw a trio of kids unearth a mysterious hole in their new house. The hole had the ability to read people’s darkest fears and has some truly terrifying scenes. Seriously I don’t know how kids made it through that film!
Now just over five years later Dante is back with a deliciously dark romantic zombie comedy. The film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, »

Hardly an exhilarating MPAA ratings bulletin today as it does include Joe Dante's Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario and Jon Watts' Cop Car starring Kevin Bacon and Shea Whigham, but I'm having a hard time getting too excited for either of those. We also have Strangerland starring Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving, which played the Sundance Film Festival and received some high marks and was picked up by Alchemy for release later this year. There is good word buzzing about Roy Andersson's A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence and the response to Bill Condon's Mr. Holmes, featuring Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock Holmes, seems to be pleasant enough, but there isn't much here to get the blood moving. The complete bulletin is listed below. Burying the Ex Rated R For sexual content, partial nudity, »

It's Flashback Friday time! Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene gave fans an unexpected treat Thursday when they bumped into each other at the Lakers game. The spur-of-the-moment reunion was everything Twilight fans needed, knowing that Robert Pattinson is officially off the market. "Reunited with Kel at the Lakers game #lovethisone #family," Greene captioned her pic on Instagram. It's the little things in life that keep us Twihards going, and seeing Greene and Lutz maintain their friendship just makes our hearts pound! We can only hope the whole gang comes back together at some point for an awesome photo opp, but now that Nikki Reed and R.Pattz are both set to tie the knot, it seems unlikely that »
A triumphant return for a beloved master or a sleepy reworking of now overly familiar tropes in a zombie movement that just won't die? Joe Dante's Burying The Ex is neither, really, the horror comedy showing plenty to say that the director of Gremlins and The Howling still has plenty left in the tank while also being undercut by a script too willing to go for the obvious gag without doing the sort of heavy lifting that would get an audience to really buy in in the first place.Anton Yelchin is Max, a meek horror shop clerk - think costumes, fake blood, etc - completely overpowered by his Ultra-a Type Personality girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene). He's changed his diet for her. He's changed his transport...

At least he didn’t deal with her the Ash Williams way.
Dante is a fine director, but word from Venice was that Alan Trezza’s script was fraught with issues, including a lot of ‘nagging girlfriend’ cliches that were more embarrassing than funny. The metaphor of an undead relationship is a good one, but it won’t fly if the representations are cheap, tacky or offensive.
There’s also the small matter of Life After Beth coming along recently and taking a very similar take on the whole zomantic comedy thing.
Still, I’m hoping that there’s a lot of fun to be had here. »

A new film by Joe Dante's always worth looking forward to. The mischievous mind behind such films as Gremlins, Piranha, The Howling and (my personal favourite), Innerspace, his films are typically laced with anarchic humour, touches of gore and affectionate references to other, classic movies.
We first learned of his latest film, Burying The Ex, in December 2013, when he began a crowdfunding campaign for $200,000 to get his horror comedy finished.
Starring Star Trek's Anton Yelchin, Burying The Ex is about a young man whose ex-girlfriend (played by Ashley Greene) returns from the grave as a zombie. That premise will inevitably draw comparisons to the thematically-similar Life After Beth, but we're hoping Dante's presence will give it a look and feel all its own. The first trailer isn't short of the director's movie-referencing humour, »
