10 Actors Who Could Play Robin in Batman v Superman

30 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There has been a lot of talk and speculation surrounding the possible inclusion of Robin in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Daniel Radcliffe recently expressed interest in playing the character, and it was rumored that Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: Episode VII) was up for the role of Nightwing. There's no confirmation on whether Robin or Nightwing will be in the movie, but there's a good chance that somewhere down the line one or both of the characters will be introduced into Snyder's DC cinematic universe. 

So I came up with a list of young actors who could potentially take on the role of Robin in the film. Over the years there have been several Robins introduced in the the comics, and any one of those could be brought into the franchise. There's Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne, and Carrie Kelley. Each one had a very different attitude, »

Refreshed London Screenings launches

23 June 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

London’s biggest film export event returns with a new name and strong selection of upcoming titles.

This year’s London Screenings (June 23-26) marks the 11th edition of the capital’s biggest film export event and has been given a make-over for 2014.

It has dropped the previous title of the London UK Film Focus (Luff) and will introduce various new strands. But organisers are quick to point out this isn’t a case of reinventing the event - more of “buffing it up” after more than a decade.

“Everyone felt that after doing it for 10 years, maybe it was time for a bit of a facelift,” says Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London, which organises the London Screenings.

The budget of around $330,000 is roughly the same as in previous years. The key difference is that the event, which generates an estimated $8m a year in international business for British films and sales agents, has secured »

First Look at Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield in 'Ten Thousand Saints'

16 May 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Solution Entertainment Group is at the Cannes Film Market with the new film from American Splendor directors Bob Pulcini and Shari Berman, Ten Thousand Saints and they've released the first picture from the upcoming drama starring Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) and Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game). Pulcini and Berman co-direct and wrote the script based on the novel of the same name by Eleanor Henderson. The story is described as a sweeping multi-generational story set against the backdrop of the raw, roaring New York City of the late 1980s; Adoption, teen pregnancy, drugs, hardcore punk rock, the unbridled optimism and reckless stupidity of the young--and old--are all major elements in this heart-aching tale of the son of diehard hippies and his strange odyssey through the extremes of late 20th century youth culture. Along with Hawke and Butterfield, the film co-stars Butterfield's Ender's Game co-star Hailee Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch (Lone Survivor »

Hailee Steinfeld Wears Fake Baby Bump on the Set of Ten Thousand Saints—See the Pic!

2 May 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well, this definitely made us do a double take! Hailee Steinfeld was snapped with what appeared to be a burgeoning belly in New York City on Thursday. But as it turns out, the 17-year-old actress is not expecting. Rather, her character is in the upcoming drama Ten Thousand Saints, which of course, explains the fake baby bump. The movie, set in the 1980s, also stars Emile Hirsch, Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer and Asa Butterfield, who previously appeared with Steinfeld in last year's Ender's Game. Earlier this week, it was announced that Steinfeld had joined the cast of Pitch Perfect 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 smash hit. No further details have been released, »

Ender’S Game Blu-ray Review

23 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you’re looking for a film that deserves a second chance, Ender’s Game will certainly fit the bill. It came and went without much fanfare last fall, another adaptation of a beloved teen novel that failed to catch fire the way the producers clearly hoped it would. It was further burdened by homophobic comments made by the novel’s author Orson Scott Card, which the filmmakers were quick to disavow to no avail. Ender’s Game came and went with nary a hiccup, which sadly overshadowed the fact that – in and of itself – it’s actually rather terrific. Hit the jump for my full Ender's Game Blu-ray review. It thrives in part because it has a lot to say about being different, and the ways in which the world tests and bullies outsiders who dare to be themselves. Director Gavin Hood has shown flashes of such insight in his previous work. »

Here Come the Teen Boy-Centric Gritty Ya Adaptations

If you aren't reading this in your favorite RSS reader or on Film School Rejects, you're being bamboozled.

There’s little question that Hollywood’s “adapt anything Ya!” attitude has helped shepherd a new line of strong (or, at least, pretend strong, as is the case with Twilight’s Bella Swan, a bell I will ring until the day I die) young female heroines into the pop cultural consciousness. The Hunger Games has the sharp-shooting Katniss Everdeen (who will soon incite a revolution in the next two films based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling three-book series), while Divergent has the fear-blasting Tris Prior (who will, hey »

You Pick Katniss to Be Your Hero

17 March 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Just like in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, when the people are looking for a hero, they turn to Katniss Everdeen - the winner of the Pick Hero Award. Katniss won with 36% of the vote but right at her heels is Percy Jackson, who ran a tight race with 32%. Of course, if you've seen Sea of Monsters, that seems about right for Percy at this point in time (anyone see Clarice?).

Feb. 21, 2014 - It's easy to be a hero when you have super powers, but what about when you don't? The nominees for Pick Hero Award are on their game whether it's to save one life, save their country, save the world or to save an alien planet. Check out the choices (see the video below) and then go vote!

DVD Review - Ender's Game (2013)

10 March 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ender's Game, 2013.

Directed by Gavin Hood.

Starring Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Ben Kingsley and Viola Davis.

Synopsis:

Young Ender Wiggin is recruited by the International Military to lead the fight against the Formics, a genocidal alien race which nearly annihilated the human race in a previous invasion.

Another week, another novella giving the Harry Potter/ Twilight treatment and big-screen transition. Created in the 1980s, Ender's Game has been on the Hollywood development table for a long while. Finally released last autumn to mediocre returns and reviews, it like many others has tried to replicate the success of the aforementioned franchises.  But where some saw tills ringing and franchise rights a-booming, Ender's Game fell into the “shot missed” category, along with other misfires like The Golden Compass or The Mortal Instruments.

Not that there isn’t at least something at least some appeal to avid fans of the book, »

DVD Review: 'Ender's Game'

10 March 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Orson Scott Card's revered sci-fi novel Ender's Game spent years in development limbo, directors and stars coming and going before South African writer and director Gavin Hood got behind the reins to bring it to the big screen. Hugo lead Asa Butterfield stars as Ender Wiggin, a child prodigy believed to have the potential to lead humanity against the invading alien 'Formics'. Under the stern eyes of a pair of officers played by Harrison Ford and Viola Davis, Ender rises through the ranks of military training school, making allies and enemies along the way. When Ender gets promoted, the film kicks up a gear, introducing mystery elements and several new characters.

The Butler didn't do it for Oscar voters, but there are sharper ideas in some of last year's under-the-radar thrillers

If a film seemingly made for the express purpose of piling up Oscar nominations then receives precisely none, does it make a sound? Well, yes and no. Lee Daniels' The Butler (Entertainment, 12) was a surprise summer hit in the Us, where audiences weary of monsters fighting robots were apparently up for a windy dose of all-star, semi-fictionalised civil rights history, but that doesn't mean it has anything to say.

Awards voters, oddly, couldn't see the hokey Forrest Gump parallels in Forest Whitaker's Cecil Gaines, humble White House butler to every president from Eisenhower to Reagan. A noble cypher who stoically pours tea while history is made around him, he's a less-than-riveting presence around whom to centre the narrative; there's more going on back home, where his radical Black Panther »
