The Afm alleges that the trio of studios broke a 2010 agreement to ensure that the music for movies made in the U.S. and… »

Indiewire recently chatted with Zimmer, who wrote and directed the film, about how she managed to replicate a verité approach within the framework of a fictional narrative. Below is an edited version of the conversation with Zimmer. What there a particular cinematic reference that inspired this film and its distinct point-of-view? The idea of the movie wasn't influenced by anything except for my memories from my adolescence. There wasn't one specific film that made me feel like "ok, I want to do a movie about »

First look at X-Men Apocalypse's new Nightcrawler Kodi Smit-McPhee
A first look at X-Men: Apocalypse's latest blue-skinned mutant Nightcrawler has teleported in... and vanished.
The video was subsequently removed, as were similar social posts via the X-Men Facebook and Twitter feeds, in a move that mimics Nightcrawler's teleportation powers.
However, quick-thinking fans were able to grab images of the new-look Nightcrawler before they were all removed from the social feeds.
In the original Marvel comics, Nightcrawler (aka Kurt Wagner) is the son of Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique and demonic warlord Azazel. The latter was played by Jason Flemyng in X-Men: First Class, but the character didn't feature »
New Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer Reveals Allies and “Dual Play” Feature
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer showing that Batman may be up against an army, but he’s also got plenty of friends. The trailer highlights the game’s new “Dual Play” feature, “which will allow players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in FreeFlow Combat.” I’m not really sure how that will make the game more fun since I’ve never felt so backed into a corner that I needed to switch to another ally to help me out. Also, this is not co-op play. This is just jumping to another character, and while that may make for some cool fights, I’m curious to see how much it adds to the overall gameplay. Check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer below. The game will be released on Xbox One, »

First Picture of the New Nightcrawler from 'X-Men: Apocalypse'
Kodi Smit-McPhee is taking on the role of the teleporting mutant, Nightcrawler, in X-Men: Apocalypse, filling shoes once occupied by Alan Cumming who played the character in one of the most memorable X-Men scenes to date, that being the opening sequence in X2: X-Men United. After director Bryan Singer attempted to one-up that sequence with Quicksilver's scene in X-Men: First Class it sort of makes you wonder what he'll have in store this time around. Just above is a screen capture from the following video tease of the character (via Twitter) and below that you have a shot from producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg, tweeting a photo from the film's set in Vancouver, letting us know the film will be set in 1983. https://twitter.com/Kinberg/status/592674867583045633 »

Tribeca: How The Filmmaker Behind 'Lucifer' Shot the First 'Circular' Feature Film
Read More: Here are the Cameras Used by the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers It all began over a glass of wine. "We were drinking wine and I cut the [stem] of my wine glass and then with the [base] we started discussing the concept," "Lucifer" director Gust Van den Berghe recently told Indiewire while in New York for the Tribeca Film Festival. This conversation between Van den Berghe and his cameraman resulted in the the development of a new idea: shooting through a cone-shaped mirror, a technique used to capture a panoramic view within a circular frame, what Van den Bergh would eventually dub the Tondoscope. Screened in the Viewpoints section at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, "Lucifer" is a deeply contemplative and highly-stylized cinematic adaptation of Joost Van Den Vondel's play of the same name. "Lucifer" is the final installment in a three-part series in which Van den Berghe focused on religion. »

Christian Bale's 'The Deep Blue Goodbye' Sinks Due To Knee Injury
Try as they might, Hollywood just can't get John D. Macdonald's pulpy Travis McGee books turned into the franchise they want. "The Deep Blue Goodbye" has been kicking around Hollywood for years, with Leonardo DiCaprio (now producing) once eyed to star, and directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone taking a look, things seemed to settle last year when Christian Bale signed up, with James Mangold ("The Wolverine," "Walk The Line") at the helm. But it looks like the "3:10 To Yuma" reunion with director James Mangold has been sidelined. THR reports that Bale has suffered a torn Acl which will keep him out of the action thriller. The actor is currently shooting the financial world drama "The Big Short" with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, and Steve Carell, but 'Goodbye,' which was scheduled to start lensing in May, would've required more fancy footwork. The story follows a “salvage consultant, »

Marvel fans, just a heads up . this is going to be a difficult week for avoiding Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers. The film hits U.S. theaters this Thursday night, but it already debuted overseas, which means people are chatting about it.

Joss Whedon Talks Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man And His Spec Script 'Suspension' Resurfacing With Liam Neeson
"I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between," Joss Whedon recently told IGN. And he has certainly dipped his does in both waters. Before he was Marvel's guiding creative force through the most profitable period in their history so far, he was hired in 2005 to write a script for a big-screen take on "Wonder Woman." The project never coalesced, but Whedon reveals that while his sensibilities don't always match, he would like to work on DC Comics properties. "Sure. I’d be like 'I have all these joke ideas.' And they’d be like 'No, we don’t do that here.' I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman," he said. But there's also characters at Marvel that, now that he's leaving, he won't be able to write for, »

Captain America: Civil War: Daniel Bruhl Confirms He’s Playing Baron Zemo
As we’ve watched Marvel Studios become the massive brand that it is today, we’ve also seen actors of all stature and status try their best to answer questions about the films while basically saying nothing at all. The go-to line seems to be that Marvel has snipers set on every major actor from their movies, and if they reveal too much, they’ll be taken out. Which is why actor Daniel Bruhl’s recent comments about his role in Captain America: Civil War are so refreshing/hilarious. Speaking with The Independent (via ScreenCrush), the Rush actor flat-out confirmed that he’s playing Baron Helmut Zemo in the Captain America sequel: “I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison… For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. »
