Why Joni Mitchell Wanted No Part Of Taylor Swift Playing Her

3 hours ago

Everyone loves Taylor Swift. That.s something we can agree on, right? She.s a national treasure, and there.s nothing she can.t do . from co-hosting The Voice to guest starring on New Girl or collecting all of the trophies at every major music awards program. Well, there.s one thing Joni Mitchell thinks Taylor Swift can.t do, and that.s play Joni Mitchell in a planned biopic. The iconic singer-songwriter addressed the news that Taylor Swift was lined up to play her in a big-screen biopic during an interview with The Sunday Times UK. Needless to say, the voice behind "Big Yellow Taxi" and "Free Man In Paris" wasn.t enthusiastic about the casting, or the way she would have been portrayed on screen. Joni Mitchell said: "I squelched that! I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones.' It's just »

4 hours ago

Guillermo Del Toro is, and always has been, a busy man. With Crimson Peak slated for release next Fall, Pacific Rim 2 preparing for a 2017 release, and various pieces of The Strain's production fitting into the man's busy schedule somehow, Del Toro isn't short on work. Yet a project of his that's gotten little to no radar coverage is his proposed Justice League Dark film for DC Comics. While he's made some comments on being open to using Matt Ryan's Constantine, there hasn't been much other word on the film's status, as well as no slot on the current DC Cinematic Continuum's release calendar. That could change though, as we've learned from Forbes that not only is the screenplay for the film finished, it has a title and it's in the hands of Warner Bros as of yesterday afternoon. Talk about a happy Thanksgiving to whoever gets to »

17 hours ago

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it.s a Superman action figure on the precipice of Earth ready to plummet down to terra firma! Don.t believe me? Then check out this rather odd but also surprisingly and completely engaging clip depicting Superman.s travel through space. Um . I don.t really know what to say. While I have to admit that I was completely transfixed by the clip, after watching it I was struggling to see what the point was in sending the action figure into space. Well, the good people over at Design Spark, who orchestrated the bizarre mission, have helped to reveal more details regarding the project. After being approached by Mattel toys, they set out to recreate Felix Baumgartner.s 39-kilometre fall from space, which took place on October 14, 2012.

Where Pacific Rim 2 Will Pick Up

17 hours ago

Guillermo del Toro is on a one-man mission to make sure that Pacific Rim 2 actually makes it to the big-screen. The Mexican director has already figured out where he wants to take the franchise, and he.s now explained where the sequel will pick up after the first. During a discussion with Collider, Guillermo del Toro declared that the follow-up will start a few years after the first film.s conclusion. This decision was reached as he wanted the threat of the Kaiju to have been severely reduced. It also sounds as though the Jaeger technology that was used to defeat the amphibious beasts in the original will be being used in a different manner at the start of Pacific Rim 2. Said the director, "It.s a few years after the first one. It.s not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, »

Kirk Cameron Tried To Cheat Rotten Tomatoes, It Did Not Go Well

21 hours ago

Kirk Cameron has unashamedly tried to improve the rating of his latest film Surviving Christmas on Rotten Tomatoes by asking his legion of Facebook fans to visit the website and support the project. Unfortunately for the actor, his ploy was far from successful. Saving Christmas has been savaged by critics ever since it was released earlier this month. In fact, its average rating on the film review aggregation website has been a meager two out of 10. In an attempt to raise the film's profile, star Kirk Cameron has tried to fight back against his many, many haters by turning to his supporters on Facebook. The former Growing Pains star has close to 2 million followers on the social networking website, and has declared a call to arms in an attempt to "storm the gates of Rotten Tomatoes!"

This Low Tech Avengers 2 Trailer Is Hilarious

21 hours ago

If last month.s trailer is any indication, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is shaping up to be one of the most visually impressive movies of 2015. The film has already broken a record for most VFX shots in a Marvel Studios movie, totaling over 3,000. However, what if Age of Ultron didn.t have the financial backing of Marvel Studios and Disney? What would Avengers 2 look like as a result? Look no further than YouTube for the answer in this clever, low-budget fan-made trailer. As you can tell from the abundance of cardboard props, cheap costumes and action figures, the The Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer released last month has been sweded. Originating from the Jack Black film Be Kind Rewind, this term apples to when someone recreates a condensed version of a blockbuster film using a camcorder and the smallest budget possible. Since the original trailer wasn.t that long, »

This James Bond Laser Watch Is Epic, Watch It In Action

23 hours ago

James Bond movies always feature the British hero using some kind of crazy high-tech spy gear to get out of a jam, but now a laser-obsessed fan has actually made one of the gadgets a reality. Check it out! We've posted about German craftsman Patrick Priebe in the past, as he is the same guy who built his very own Iron Man gauntlet as well as a laser-guided Spider-Man webshooter, but now he has unveiled his latest build and it is quite impressive. Taking a page out of Q's book, he has designed a watch that can fire a a high-powered laser beam capable of some serious damage. As you can see in the video, the laser is hot enough to pop a balloon, light matches, scorch walls, and even burn through plastic. Much like James Bond's version of the same thing, this thing is definitely not a toy. In »

Wait, Bane Wanted To Become Batman? This Insane Fan Theory Changes The Dark Knight Rises

25 November 2014 12:16 PM, PST

Although Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight trilogy was a tremendous success, its last entry is still heavily debated among fans. Many consider The Dark Knight Rises to be the weakest entry of the series and believe it doesn.t fit thematically with its predecessors. Among the issues often discussed is the film.s main villain, Bane. Although Tom Hardy was intimidating as the League of Shadows strongman, some take issue with his role in the film - specifically that he has only loosely adapted from the comic book incarnation, the gaps in his plan and his anticlimactic death. However, there.s a new fan theory that not only puts Bane in an entirely new light, but paints the entire movie in a new light: Bane wasn.t a villain at all, he was on Batman.s side the entire time! Reddit user ciociosanvstar has posted a message on the "Fan »

25 November 2014 10:48 AM, PST

Ari Folman, who has earned a great deal of acclaim as the the director of the psychedelic science fiction adventure, The Congress, and the animated feature, Waltz With Bashir, would be up for turning Alejandro Jodorowsky.s Dune into an animated feature. Can we just all take a second to appreciate how cool something like that could be? Unfortunately, there isn.t anything confirmed, but that's not stopping us from imaging the possibilities. An animated Dune is really more of a twinkle in Folman.s eye. After seeing Frank Pavich.s 2013 documentary, Jodorowsky.s Dune, a film about Jodorowsky.s ambitious but ultimately doomed attempt to bring the novel to the big screen in the 70.s, Ari Folman recently admitted that he was interested in bringing Jodorowsky.s vision to life. While Jodorowsky wasn.t ever interested in turning his vision for Dune into an animated film, he did say »

The Pan Trailer Is Magical, Adventurous And Visually Stunning

25 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST

"Welcome to Neverand!" With the vocal boom of a carnival barker, Hugh Jackman helps kick off the first full trailer for Joe Wright.s Pan, a wondrous origin story for the legendary hero that will reinvent the fairy tale next summer. You had me at "Joe Wright." The director of such lush and mesmerizing epics as Atonement, Anna Karenina and Hanna puts a unique spin on the classic work of J.M. Barrie to portray young Peter Pan (newcomer Levi Miller) as a stolen orphan snatched by the crew of Blackbeard (Jackman) and transported on a wild and colorful adventure to Neverland. The tone of Pan appears to aim right at families . particularly parents, playing up Amada Seyfried.s character as having to give up her child (and Peter.s tender hopes that he will one day reunite with her in another life). But on a recent visit to the »

The Jurassic World Trailer Is Terrifying And Perfect

25 November 2014 9:10 AM, PST

"If something chases you. run!" Welcome back to Jurassic World, a theme park where the patrons are lunch. Though we expected the first full trailer for Colin Trevorrow.s sequel to drop on Thanksgiving, someone took the bird out of the over much earlier, giving us a long, loving look at what promises to be one of the biggest movies of 2015. The point of emphasis at the start of the trailer is on two young brothers taking a trip to the park of the title (in true Steven Spielberg fashion). But one thing that.s instantly different about the tone of this trailer is that the park is Loaded with people. This isn.t a handful of scientists scurrying away from dinos. This is a Disney World-level success story . a tourist destination . that.s about to be thrown into total chaos. The Sea World nod is evident, as a crocodile-type »

25 November 2014 8:57 AM, PST

Carey Mulligan adds Bathsheba Everdene to her repertoire with Far From The Madding Crowd. Check out its first trailer below: Forget love triangles. That's so totally 2014. How about a love quadrangle? In Thomas Hardy.s classic 1874 novel Far From The Madding Crowd, Bathsheba Everdene has her pick of three very different suitors. There's the kind-hearted sheep farmer Gabrielle Oak, the dashing and passionate Sergeant Frank Troy, and the wealthy but stern William Boldwood. Each offers love. Which one--and which life--will she choose? In Far From The Madding Crowd's first trailer, Fox Searchlight builds this premise out with loads of mood and an eerie and enchanting song. The colors are glorious, and naturally Carey Mulligan looks lovely as Bathsheba. But let's take a closer look at her co-stars/the heroine's romantic options. First up, that simple shepherd Gabrielle Oaks, played here by Matthias Schoenaerts, the Belgian actor who recently stared »
