Warner Bros. and RatPac team up for 'The Goldfinch'

14 minutes ago

Warner Bros. has acquired the feature film rights to Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winner The Goldfinch, with Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment set to produce the adaptation, EW confirmed Monday.

The Goldfinch tells the story of Theo Decker, whose mother is killed in the bombing of a New York museum. Abandoned by his father, Decker is taken in by a wealthy family. The epic, post-traumatic tale reveals the nearly two-decade aftermath of those events, anchored by Decker’s attachment to the piece of art (Dutch master Carel Fabritius’ “The Goldfinch”) he walked out of the devastated museum with years ago. »

Watch the official trailer for 'Batkid Begins'

4 hours ago

Miles Scott, the 5-year-old leukemia survivor better known as Batkid, won over the hearts of San Francisco (and pretty much the entire internet) when his Make-a-Wish request was to be Batman for a day. And in November, the city of San Francisco came together to make that happen, with thousands of people lining the streets to simulate Gotham City.

Now, filmmaker Dana Nachman is bringing Miles’ story to the big screen. Well, she’s trying to. Nachman has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the film, titled Batkid Begins, which now has its first official trailer, featuring Miles’ parents, »

5 hours ago

Christopher Walken is officially king of the swingers.

Lady Gaga cameos in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' red-band trailer

5 hours ago

Sin City, it seems, is a town full of antiheroes doing anti-heroic things and scantily clad women who are not operating at the highest level of morality, either.

In a new red-band trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, released at Comic-Con, we can see a bit more of co-directors Richard Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s plans for the sequel to the 2005 original—Joseph Gordon-Levitt opines on woes of gambling and women, Powers Booth plays a dangerous game of cards, Eva Green has nefarious plans for Josh Brolin, and Bruce Willis torments Jessica Alba.

Oh, and Lady Gaga »

'Horns' trailer: Speak of the devil and Daniel Radcliffe doth appear

9 hours ago

Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.

This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.

Marvel unveils 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' props at Comic-Con

10 hours ago

Marvel unveiled three props from Avengers: Age of Ultron at their Comic-Con booth over the weekend—now you just have to guess what the props are.

It’s not too hard: The first prop is a piece of the Hulkbuster armor, what Tony Stark wears for maximum strength when he fights the Hulk, and the other is most likely an early version of Ultron, Stark’s artificial intelligence creation. Marvel also showed off Captain America’s cracked shield—guess it’s not so indestructible after all.

From the #MarvelSDCC booth yesterday, two revealed props from #Avengers #AgeOfUltron! What do You think they are? »
