Santa Barbara fests' Virtuosos honorees include Boseman, Slate, Oyelowo

12 December 2014 3:59 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you thought the recent Golden Globes nominations slighted some of the better performances this year, allow the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to shine its spotlight on some of the underdogs (along with a few major contenders we can’t cynically roll our eyes at — they’re just too lovable).  Sbiff announced in a press release Friday afternoon that it would continue its tradition of honoring the year’s standout performers by presenting The 2015 Virtuosos Award to Chadwick Boseman ("Get on Up"), Ellar Coltrane ("Boyhood"), Logan Lerman ("Fury"), David Oyelowo ("Selma"), Rosamund Pike ("Gone Girl"), J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") and Jenny Slate ("Obvious Child"). “These are seven exemplary performers that provide us with undeniable evidence that 2014 was a dynamic year in acting," festival director Roger Durling said in a statement. If you were thinking of contending with Sbiff’s choices, allow them to defend the picks in their own words: »

Why Does DC Snub Its Television Talent?

3 December 2014 2:28 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

On the heels of Suicide Squad's cast announcement, I have a bittersweet taste in my mouth. While I do like the thought of Jared Leto, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, and others portraying some of the baddest villains out there, I have a foul taste in my mouth. "What about the television actors?" I think, remembering the solid performances of Michael Rowe as Deadshot on Arrow. The same can be said for many other actors in the DC universe right now, such as Nick Tarabay, who recently made his debut as Captain Boomerang on Flash. Not long after his debut, it was announced that his former Spartacus cast mate Jai Courtney will be playing the same character in Suicide Squad.

The move was reminiscent of the announcement of Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash the same day the second episode ratings were announced for the television show starring Grant Gustin. »

3 December 2014 1:16 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year, it was Damien Chazelle’s richly texturized, foot-tapping, finger-snapping sophomore pic Whiplash that instantly became the “it” film to beat in the sixteen competition offerings. In 2015, we have Sundance habituals in James C. Strouse, Craig Zobel and Andrew Bujalski measuring up against Park City feature film first-timers in Marielle Heller, Patrick Brice, Chloé Zhao, Nikole Beckwith and Kris Swanberg.

Sundance Film Festival Unveils 2015 Competition, Next Lineups

3 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A funny thing happened on the way to Park City: The general upsurge of comedians in the independent film world wound up playing a major role in shaping the 2015 Sundance Film Festival program, per fest director John Cooper and director of programming Trevor Groth.

The effect can be felt across all aspects of the feature lineup, which boasts a total of 118 films (103 of them world premieres), but especially among the 16 titles set to screen in the always buzzy U.S. dramatic competition. That’s one of the four juried slates (including U.S. documentary, World Cinema dramatic and World Cinema documentary) unveiled today along with the festival’s noncompetitive Next section.

“There are probably more comedies in the dramatic competition than ever before,” Groth said, citing such titles as “Results,” a romantic laffer from mumblecore auteur Andrew Bujalski, with Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders as a pair of personal trainers; Patrick Brice’s “The Overnight, »

'Z for Zachariah,' 'The Bronze' lead 2015 Sundance Film Festival U.S. dramatic slate

3 December 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Sundance Film Institute announced the U.S. dramatic, world dramatic, U.S. documentary, world documentary and Next selections for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival today. The premier film festival in the United States, Sundance is coming off a banner 2014 edition that brought films earning year-end kudos such as "Whiplash," "Boyhood," "Dear White People," "Obvious Child" and "The Skeleton Twins" into the world. The 2015 slate just looks just as intriguing and, according to the festival, perhaps more emotional and challenging. In a statement from the Institute, the festival's director, John Cooper, remarked, "The selections for our 2015 Festival will take audiences on a wild ride of emotional extremes. With approaches ranging from comedic to dramatic, genre to documentary, experimental to short, independent filmmakers are bravely illuminating new opportunities for understanding and empathy.” Festival founder and cinema icon Robert Redford added, "The work of independent artists inevitably reflects the state of our culture »

Will 'Batman v Superman' Set Up the 'Suicide Squad' Movie?

2 December 2014 12:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues production under the direction of Zack Snyder, new plot details have surfaced, hinting that this highly-anticipated feature may create a direct link to Suicide Squad. A report from Badass Digest reveals that The Joker already exists in the world of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Superman (Henry Cavill) is aware of him. Jared Leto is in final talks to play The Joker in Suicide Squad, but the character is likely to be referenced by name alone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

There have been reports that Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg, will also be appearing in Suicide Squad. It's possible that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25, 2016) will help set up the events seen in Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016), since they're being released to bookend the year for Warner Bros. and DC.

Does Marvel Appreciate Their Fans More Than DC?

18 November 2014 11:53 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Marvel is clearly kicking DC's ass when it come to their comic book movies, and I think they will continue to do so. DC is sure to make some great upcoming movies, but I don't think they will be as good as what Marvel is accomplishing. Marvel just has a better grasp on their stories and the universe they've created. This isn't the only thing Marvel is great at, though. They also show a respect for their fan base and they know how to treat them.

GeekTyrant.com was launched at the same time Jon Favreau's first Iron Man film was released, and my very first post was a review of that film. In a way, Marvel was the catalyst for what GeekTyrant would become. I think that’s all thanks to Favreau and his love for the fans. That guy knows what he’s doing when it comes fan interaction, »

Arrow's Stephen Amell on DC movies: 'It could have been handled better'

14 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Arrow actor Stephen Amell has criticised DC Comics' strategy for announcing its full slate of upcoming films.

DC Comics and Warner Bros Pictures recently unveiled plans for films featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash through 2019.

Amell has since taken issue with Ezra Miller being announced as the star of 2018's The Flash shortly after Grant Gustin launched an unconnected television series based around the character.

"I thought that the way that Warner Bros announced the slate of DC movies could have been handled better," he told AMC Movie Talk. "And I think someone like Grant Gustin, who has just launched an iconic character like The Flash to record-breaking numbers, numbers that far-surpassed Arrow's numbers, he should have been given a wider berth than two episodes before another actor was announced to play his character.

"All that being said, that's because I'm protective of Grant, and that's »

Oscar producers hire 'The Flash' producer, 'Dark Shadows' writer for telecast

14 November 2014 11:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In 2009, the Internet went crazy over a rumor that Neil Patrick Harris would play The Flash in a big screen "Justice League" movie. That didn’t happen — Ezra Miller got the job and Harris settled with voicing the character in a direct-to-dvd animated film. But now it’s looking like "Gone Girl" costar could finally get a superheroic boost from the team behind CW’s "The Flash." They’ll be feeding Harris his lines when he takes on hosting duties for the 87th Academy Awards. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that writer, producer and director Greg Berlanti joins the team as head writer for his first Oscars telecast. The name should be familiar to anyone absorbed in comic book movie/TV sagas; Berlanti’s writing credits include the television series “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Everwood” and “Dawson’s Creek,” and the feature films “Wrath of the Titans” and “Green Lantern. »

Will DC Comics Take Audiences to Multi-Universes in a Cinematic / TV Crossover?

6 November 2014 4:56 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Grant Gustin is the Flash on television’s highly successful CW series. Ezra Miller has just been announced as the Scarlet Speedster in an upcoming big-screen version of the super hero. Ben Affleck is playing an aged Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. David Mazouz portrays a young Bruce Wayne in Gotham.

Stephen Amell has won the acclaim of millions of fans as Arrow for three seasons. With Justice League movies on the horizon, it will only be a matter of time before an actor to take on the film version of the Emerald Archer will no doubt be announced. Could DC Comics be preparing for a Multi-Universe cross-platform event that would make Marvel’s connection between their television shows and movies look like a simple farce?

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Afm Opens in Glow of Good Film News

5 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As final prep took place for the 35th American Film Market in Santa Monica, temperatures began rising — and so did optimism that the independent marketplace would generate significant transactions.

A flurry of deals came together in the week leading up to the Afm’s opening Wednesday: Henry Cavill starring in the action-thriller “Stratton”; Morton Csokas joining Emilia Clarke in “Voice From the Stone”; Shekhar Kapur directing “Tiger’s Curse”; Mitch Glazer’s TV series “Magic City” (pictured) becoming a movie with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray; Jon Bernthal and Catalina Sandino Moreno joining Catherine Zeta-Jones in drug-lord drama “The Godmother”; and Naomi Watts, Susan Sarandon and Elle Fanning starring in “Three Generations.”

Adding to the positive vibes were several recent funding announcements: Kevin Frakes’ PalmStar backing Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road and Bill Block’s Qed plus Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp securing $600 million in financing with Scarlett Johanssen »
