What Suicide Squad Will Borrow From The Dark Knight

36 minutes ago

No jokes. It was a mandate we had heard about the developing DC Cinematic Universe, and it.s one that flies in stark contrast (get it?) to the lighter movies of Marvel. Yet, David Ayer.s Suicide Squad is going to have a Joker (in Jared Leto), and the maniacal Harley Quinn (in Margot Robbie). It has to be humorous. Right? Maybe not. Knowing that it.s very early in the process, Margot Robbie spoke with MTV about the upcoming super-villain movie, and what fans can expect. She was asked specifically about the tone of the material, as that can go a long way toward preparing an audience for the end result. Specifically, Robbie was asked if Suicide Squad would resemble Christopher Nolan.s somber, serious Batman trilogy, or Joss Whedon.s The Avengers. She explained that Squad likely will borrow its tone from Nolan, saying: I think on a »

The Crow Now Looking At Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston To Star

9 hours ago

When you've had a steady TV gig like Jack Huston did on Boardwalk Empire, it's always nerve wracking when that gig comes to an end. While trying to transfer to films is always an option, it doesn't always work for actors primarily known for their work on the small screen. Lucky for Huston though, he has a gig playing the lead in Ben Hur already lined up. And if Relativity Studios has their way, he could be filling the recently vacated lead in the remake of The Crow. Deadline has the inside track on information that pegs Jack, paternal nephew of Angelica Huston, in the lead role of Eric Draven. Draven, who becomes the eponymous hero after being slain alongside his pregnant fiancee, lives a second life for vengeance against the criminal scum that took away his ultimate happiness. The 1994 Alex Proyas-directed original is a cult classic, with Brandon Lee »

Alien 5 Will Not Discard The Last Two Movies, Get The Details

10 hours ago

Neill Blomkamp has, to no one's surprise, been in the news quite a bit in the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately for poor old Chappie, who's set to make friends with the world next week, the film press seems a little more interested in talking about Blomkamp's next project. Considering that project deals with reviving the Alien franchise for one last ride, who can blame them? Especially when the latest word from the man himself is that this new, and presumably final, chapter will work within the continuity of the original series run. French site AlloCine had the chance to speak with Blomkamp on a red carpet, and despite previous reports from certain outlets that suggested the film would be overriding the events of Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection, the District 9 director made it clear that the complete opposite is the case. He told the reporter, I.m not »

11 hours ago

One can only imagine the amount of pressure that's been building on Anthony Mackie over these last few months. After all, the guy is in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he couldn't really tell anybody all about it. Fortunately, the big news finally broke with the movie's poster reveal earlier this week, and that has allowed Anthony Mackie to publicly celebrate: Oh... It just got real! This poster is definitely going on the wall!!! Sam Wilson is back baby.@Avengers #Cutthecheck pic.twitter.com/768d8j0Buw. Anthony Mackie (@AnthonyMackie) February 24, 2015 With eagle-eyed Marvel fans having noticed that Anthony Mackie's name appears in the credits block on the new Avengers: Age of Ultron poster, confirming his role in the movie, the actor took to his personal Twitter page to celebrate. As you can tell, he's pretty damn excited about his part in the blockbuster and the fact that »

Harrison Ford Officially Set For Blade Runner 2

13 hours ago

It was nearly a year ago that we first learned that Alcon Entertainment was reaching out to Harrison Ford about the possibility of starring in the upcoming Blade Runner 2, and while it took a long time for us to hear a resolution to that story, today we have the results. The studio has announce via press release that Ford will officially reprise his role as Rick Deckard in the upcoming sequel. That's obviously huge news for the production of the film, but that's actually not the entire story. Alcon has also revealed that they are currently in talks with Academy Award nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy) to helm Blade Runner 2. As of now, there doesn't appear to be a deal securely in place, but the fact that the studio is officially announcing negotiations can be taken as a very good sign. As of now, the plan is to start »

Why Elysium Sucks, According To The Director Of Elysium

13 hours ago

In retrospect, director Neill Blomkamp.s sophomore directorial effort, Elysium, was a disappointment. While not a bad film, it certainly does pale in comparison to the filmmaker.s debut - District 9 - and was ultimately a rather forgettable sci-fi feature. As it turns out, these failings aren.t lost on the movie.s filmmaker, and now he.s come forward to admit that he "fucked it up." Blomkamp is currently on the promotional tour for his latest movie, Chappie, and it was while sitting down with Uproxx that the South African filmmaker revealed his disappointment with the way that Elysium came out. Rather than putting the blame on an external force, however, he instead acknowledged that the real issues with the movie came from core script issues that should have been worked out before the film got rolling. He told the site, The thing that bothers me is if »

Hero Blend #53: What It Means For DC To Unite The Seven

14 hours ago

Months after giving us our first look at Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from his upcoming 2016 blockbuster, director Zack Snyder did his part to break the internet late last week when he debuted the first look at Jason Momoa.s Aquaman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The image of the character showed us that the growing DC Cinematic Universe is going in a very different direction design-wise from the comics, replacing the blonde hair and orange/green suit with dredlocks, armor, and scaly tattoos. But that.s not all that came with the reveal. It also came with a very important message that should play a very big role in the future of comic book movies: .Unite The Seven.. It is widely believed that this phrase is in reference to the seven core members of the Justice League. The question that it presents, however, is in regard to »

How Dave Bautista's James Bond Henchman Will Be Different Than Our Expectations

16 hours ago

After seeing Dave Bautista give a surprisingly funny and memorable performance as the emerald alien ass-kicker Drax The Destroyer this past summer in Guardians of the Galaxy, it seemed that a star was finally born. But with the Guardians sequel still a few years away, Bautista is currently checking another high-profile role off his cinematic list . namely that of a James Bond villain in the upcoming Spectre. However, according to Bautista, don.t expect his character to be just another vacant muscle-head. Instead, we should be expecting a lot more from his role as Mr. Hinx In an interview with Empire Magazine, Bautista discussed some of the surprising aspects of his villainous role in the Bond sequel in a piece that would also provide the very first official photo of the character. (Which you can view for yourself here.) It seems that, going into the role in Spectre, Bautista was »

Jem And The Holograms Look Truly, Truly '80s In This Outrageous First Look

16 hours ago

We.re all in for one truly outrageous blast from the past when the Jem and the Holograms movie hits theaters on October 23rd. The film adaptation of the .80s animated TV series was announced last year, but we.re only now getting our first official image of the gals rockin. out on stage. We.re still trying to figure out if the movie itself will be as outrageous as the original show, or if we can just look forward to a trio of wannabe Hannah Montanas. Universal Pictures officially released this nice hi-res image online today (click on the image to see it full size), and there.s tons of glitter, Lisa Frank-style makeup, heavily Bedazzled jackets, and a crazy light show theatrics. The end result? Basically what I imagine an updated version of Dazzler from X-Men to look like - only here I wouldn.t be surprised if »

Watch Everything Wrong With Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

17 hours ago

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes was roundly praised upon its release last summer for being one of the smartest, tensest and visually arresting blockbusters of recent years. But that doesn.t mean that it.s completely impervious to criticism. Far from it, as it turns out, as the good people over at Cinema Sins have now tallied up all of the films cinematic faults, and uploaded their findings to the world wide web for our enjoyment. So, in total, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes committed 104 cinema sins over the course of its 131-minute time. That.s roughly one every 1 minute and 15 seconds, which -- while it doesn.t sound great -- isn.t too bad a return when you compare it to the number of "sins" committed by other blockbusters from last summer. *ahem* Transformers: Age Of Extinction *ahem*. So what were the negative elements exposed »

3 Massive Ways Avengers 2 Could Top The Original's Ending

18 hours ago

There is little question that Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron is our most anticipated film of the upcoming summer blockbuster season. Ever since the credits began to roll on The Avengers back in 2012, we have been eagerly anticipating the sequel, and endlessly speculating about how its story would unfold and where it would leave things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. To help answer the second half of that mystery, Whedon recently went on record saying that we can expect the climax of the film to be "completely unhinged" and that the movie will be "larger" than its predecessor . but what exactly could that mean? Strapping on our thinking caps and analyzing the recently revealed quotes from the Avengers 2 director, we.ve come up with three potential ways scenarios that could explain the filmmakers comments, and make Age of Ultron an even bigger spectacle than its massive, stunning »

18 hours ago

It.s no secret that Avengers: Age of Ultron is looking to be Marvel.s biggest film yet. Featuring three new Avengers, an insane robot villain and plenty of pulse-racing, property-damaging action, fans and general moviegoers will get their money.s worth of Marvel excitement. In fact, the May blockbuster is going to be so off-the-rails crazy, the ending we.ll see in theaters nearly didn.t become a reality! Joss Whedon told Yahoo! Movies that Avengers: Age of Ultron will have a climax that is so grand and epic, the director didn.t even think that Marvel would let him do it when he brought it to the table. Said Whedon: Avengers: Age of Ultron got larger than the first film. I didn.t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that.s that. It.s »

Why Jon Stewart Is Furious With Fox News Over American Sniper Coverage

18 hours ago

Theoretically, conservative pundits should embrace everything about American Sniper. The film celebrates a member of our military. It was made by one of their own in Clint Eastwood. And the movie has been cleaning up at the box office en route to Oscar eve, where it took home one statue for Best Achievement in Sound Editing. That wasn.t enough for the hosts of the Fox News Channel.s Fox and Friends, and now Jon Stewart is taking them to task. During a lengthy rant on The Daily Show about how Conservatives often get angry because things aren.t Conservative enough, Stewart eventually rolled around to the reactions to American Sniper not winning All of the Oscars. When trying to figure out if Sniper was snubbed by the largely Liberal Hollywood system because it was directed by Clint Eastwood, one pundit on Fox News guessed, "Probably."

However, it will soon make its debut to the streaming medium with the upcoming Daredevil series on Netflix.

The Hulk Looks More Jacked Than Ever In New Avengers 2 Poster

20 hours ago

With a little over two months until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, it.s time for Marvel to take their marketing to the next level. Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. posted the first solo hero poster featuring everyone.s favorite armor-wearing, snarky industrialist superhero Iron Man. Now it.s time for The Hulk to shine, and he looks like he.s ready for battle. This morning, Mark Ruffalo posted on Facebook the first Hulk-centric poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Like Tony Stark the day before, Hulk is getting ready to face off against Ultron.s minions. His pose is almost exactly the same as it was in the group poster, but regardless, it.s obvious he.s jacked up and ready to rip into these robots with unquenchable fury. If this is a consistent pattern, then each Avenger will likely get their own poster in the coming days (perhaps »

Richard Linklater's Latest To Take Another Unusual Look At Family

20 hours ago

While Richard Linklater flew closer to the Best Picture Oscar sun with his Golden Globes-dominating film, Boyhood than he ever had before, the prestigious gold statue ended up eluding him. (Save for the Best Supporting Actress win for Patricia Arquette.) Now, the Texas filmmaker is circling another project that could end up, in much the same spirit of Boyhood, being an innovative, original look at the concept of family based off a book called Where.d You Go Bernadette. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Linklater is in talks for a directorial effort that would be an adaptation of the 2012 best-selling novel by Maria Semple, Where.d You Go Bernadette: A Novel. The novel.s satirical, unorthodox plot depicts a young girl.s quest to find her brilliant, but capricious mother at the ends of the Earth. The film could very well continue the usage of what now seems to »

Why The NYPD Is Forcing Cops To Watch Road House

22 hours ago

It.s a known fact that the 1989 classic, Road House with the late Patrick Swayze is the manliest thing ever put to celluloid in the history of modern civilization. Women and young children have been known to grow hair on their chests and develop deep voices after a single viewing, due to incidental microwaves of testosterone emitted by the film. Yet, it seems that the New York Police Department, in light of the incident which claimed the life of Eric Garner, are using a scene from Road House as a training tool to teach officers more effective ways of dealing with irate people. According to a report from The New York Post, the NYPD has instituted a $35 million, mandatory 3-day training program designed to teach its 22,000 participants that, as an instructor states, "You have to have a thick skin." The scene that was apparently utilized in the NYPD course depicted »
