3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“There’s one of two ways we can go,” writer/director Shane Black said in May of 2016. “We use [Arnold] Schwarzenegger or we don’t. And there’s advantages to using him and there’s a story to be told if we don’t, and I’m not going to tell you which one we chose, but we made a choice that I think is cool and we’ll see what happens,” Black said.

Spoilers: We Know Who Is Playing Ares In Wonder Woman And It's Not Who You Expected

19 February 2017 5:50 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ares' role in Wonder Woman has been rumoured for a while now, but it was recently confirmed thanks to both a magazine feature and some upcoming action figures. So far, most of us have assumed that X-Men Origins: Wolverine baddie Danny Huston would be revealed as that character, but it appears as if Warner Bros. has been playing a game of misdirection!  Test screenings for the movie took place yesterday, and while it's not clear if this information hails from those, Batman-News reports that multiple sources have told them Harry Potter star David Thewlis will, in fact, be revealed as Ares, a character who is the main villain in Wonder Woman and a mixture of CGI and practical effects.  We've known about the actor's involvement in the movie for some time now, but most of us probably assumed he was playing some sort of unassuming military figure or scientist.

'Lego Batman' Tops Presidents' Day Weekend, 'Great Wall' Leads Newcomers

19 February 2017 9:01 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Lego Batman Movie topped the weekend box office for a second week in a row, holding off a trio of newcomers led by Universal's The Great Wall. Fellow new releases, Fist Fight and particularly Fox's A Cure for Wellness, fizzled in their respective debuts as the start of 2017's Presidents' Day weekend saw the top twelve come in 47% behind last year. While that was mostly to be expected, it's a rather significant dip as 2017 is currently pacing 10.4% behind 2016's yearly grosses. With an estimated $34.2 million, WB's The Lego Batman Movie finished #1 by a considerable margin, dropping 35.4% and raising its domestic cume to $98.7 million after ten days in release. The film should top $43 million for the four-day weekend, pushing it over $100 million by end of day Monday. Internationally, Lego Batman is up to $72 million after bringing in an estimated $21.5 million from 62 markets this weekend elevating its worldwide total over $170 million. »

‘Logan’ Director James Mangold Wants to Make an X-23 Spinoff

17 February 2017 3:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Hugh Jackman‘s Logan is the undisputed star of Logan (you know, as indicated by the title), but its resident scene-stealer is definitely Laura, a.k.a. X-23. As played by 11-year-old Dafne Keen, she’s a force of nature who’s more than capable of holding her own against veteran X-Men like Wolverine and Professor X. I’ve got a strong feeling she’ll […]

‘The Batman’: Negotiations Break Down Between Studio and Director Matt Reeves

17 February 2017 3:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In another setback for the superhero tentpole, talks have broken down between Warner Bros. and director Matt Reeves about becoming the director of “The Batman,” Variety has confirmed.

A studio source indicates that negotiations have stopped, but adds that talks could resume down the road. WB is still intent on making the film, the source insisted, whatever means necessary.

The news comes after star Ben Affleck stepped down as director in order to focus on playing the Caped Crusader.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement on Jan. 30. “Performing this role demands focus, passion, and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in »

‘Shazam’: Superhero Movie Eyes ‘Lights Out’ Director

17 February 2017 2:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lights Out” director David F. Sandberg is in talks to direct New Line’s “Shazam” superhero movie.

Lights Out,” based on Sandberg’s short film, was a breakout success last summer for New Line with the horror film grossing nearly $150 million on a $5 million budget. Several months before the release of “Lights Out,” New Line hired the Swedish filmmaker to direct “Annabelle 2,” which will be out in August.

Shazam first appeared in 1939 as Captain Marvel in comic books published by Fawcett Comics as a creation of artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker. He is the alter ego of teenage Billy Batson, who becomes the superhero when he says the word “Shazam!” — an acronym for the gods of the ancient world with the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Aries, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.

The international titles for the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” appear to confirm that said “Jedi” are in fact plural. The official Star Wars twitter accounts of France, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Italy, and more revealed the titles in their respective languages — all of them calling out multiple Jedi. Because of this development, we now know that the title is supposed to mean more than one Jedi, as in, Luke and Rey… and maybe even more of masters of the Force.

Richard Schickel, Influential Time Magazine Film Critic, Dies at 84

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Schickel, the longtime film critic for Time magazine who also wrote 37 books, mostly on film, and directed a number of documentaries on film subjects, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of complications from a series of strokes, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He was 84.

“He was one of the fathers of American film criticism,” his daughter, writer Erika Schickel, told the Times. “He had a singular voice. When he wrote or spoke, he had an old-fashioned way of turning a phrase. He was blunt and succinct both on the page and in life.”

He wrote and/or directed more than 30 documentaries, mostly for television.

Schickel shared a 1977 Emmy nomination for the documentary “Life Goes to the Movies” and received two nominations in 1987 for the documentary “Minnelli on Minnelli: Liza Remembers Vincente,” which he directed.

Schickel wrote film reviews for Life magazine from 1965 until the magazine folded in »

Lorraine Bracco on Goodfellas, therapy, and almost turning down The Sopranos

23 minutes ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The star talks about fighting with Martin Scorsese, missing James Gandolfini – and her dad scaring Dustin Hoffman at the Oscars

I ask Lorraine Bracco if she remembers the first time she saw Goodfellas, Martin Scorsese’s dazzling portrait of life in the mob. “Absolutely,” she says. “It was last year.” Which is strange, given the film came out in 1990, and Bracco was one of the stars. She is laughing as she speaks, a husky giggle, her accent doorstop-thick New York. “Well, I went to the premiere, but I missed the start doing interviews, and then they pulled me out before the end, and then I had another job on a film with Sean Connery in the fucking jungle. And by the time I came home it wasn’t playing. And I never wanted to see it on TV. So, yeah, I didn’t see it until – Mo, when was the 25th anniversary? »

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’: Designing the Immigrant Experience

38 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For three-time Oscar winners Stuart Craig and Colleen Atwood, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” offered fascinating stylistic departures. J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” standalone takes place in New York in 1926 — a time, of course, when the immigrant experience flourished.

“New York was all about diversity, and [director] David Yates wanted [to express that],” Atwood told IndieWire. “There were people new to New York and there were people that had been there for a generation — and it was an open-minded time.”

Thus, for both production and costume design, there was great class and cultural diversity to explore in architecture and wardrobes. Although they considered shooting in New York City, that proved to be impractical, so they returned to the back lot of Leavesden Studios outside of London.

J.K. Rowling identified particular buildings in her script, including the Gothic Woolworth [for the Magical Congress headquarters], which at that time was the largest building in the world,” Craig told IndieWire. »
