Warner Bros. Producer Negotiating To Bring Attack On Titan Manga Series To Big Screen

53 minutes ago

 A few years ago, you may have stumbled across an anime series called Attack on Titan. Every so often, an anime series crosses over from its niche audience to the mainstream, and not really since maybe Fullmetal Alchemist had an anime series done so. And then came the manga Attack on Titan, from manga artist Hajime Isayama.

The terribly-drawn manga was adapted into a gorgeous anime, and in the time since the anime series has hit, there have been manga spinoffs and a couple of live-action Japanese films, but surprisingly enough, this series — which has quite the Western influence as far as the visuals go — had yet to get thrown into the Hollywood grinder. The source material is certainly popular enough, and unlike many other manga properties out there, this is one that’s prime for adaptation.

Luckily, it sounds like someone’s finally received the message. According to a report from Deadline, »

Supergirl: Kevin Smith Gives Us A Picture Of A New Alien Race

1 hour ago

Oh yeah! Just one more week until the CW superhero shows start returning from their mid-season break, giving us some fun shows to add to the dismal viewing available now. In fact, all I have to watch now is Taboo, The Blacklist, Vikings, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham (I do not even want to talk about that return, and am curious if I will stick with it), and Homeland. So adding four series will be much needed for my entertainment world.

Supergirl has it's ups and downs, and while I loved the first season, I am nervous about the adding of a large superhero team, like the other CW shows do. We now have Superman, Mon-El, Kryptonite-Suit Alex Danvers, Jionn J'onzz in a more prolific role with his powers, James Olsen as The Guardian, and M'gann M'orzz will make an appearance next week. I liked Supergirl much better when it was just her, »

Comic Books 101: DC Rebirth Review 2017!

Comic Books 101: DC Rebirth  Review 2017!

DC Comics had an overall week ending to their New 52 run. Many of the series just petered out, with only a few having any significant sendoff (Batman, Jla, Superman. Marvel was killing them in sales, and only the core titles ever broke the top 10. Then it all changed, DC made a bold announcement to once again “rework” their line up and in continuity world. They announced is DC Rebirth (You can see the lead up to DC Rebirth in my article here DC Comics Then And Now) an attempt to “get back to basics” for many of their characters. New creative teams, no visions for their books, and less crossovers! Phase 1 of the relaunch so far has been a huge success, the months of June-August were predominantly DC books in the top sales, and many fans have enjoyed the new stories regarding their favorite characters. »

Has Deadpool 2 Finally Found Its Cable?! Can it Be?!

2 hours ago

Last night, while we were busy shining a spotlight on some troubling remarks made about Wonder Woman (which you can see by Clicking Here!), someone else was busy planting the seed of another rumor on the net. Ryan Reynolds posted an image on his Instagram account that's got an awful lot of tongues wagging this morning, because everyone's wondering if he just revealed who'll be playing Cable in Deadpool 2.

See, for months, all eyes have been on potential suitors for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. From actors like Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman throwing their names into the hat, to thespians like Kyle Chandler being mentioned as frontrunners, and fan campaigns for guys like Dolph Lundgren to get the role, it seems everyone's keen to find out who'll eventually land the part. 

Now, thanks to this post by Reynolds, a name that was on nobody's radar is »

It's King Kong vs Captain Marvel In This New Banner For Kong: Skull Island

2 hours ago

When the trailer for Kong: Skull Island came out a few months ago, it took a lot of people by surprise. The film's got a great cast, and it looks like it may end up being an epically good time at the movies. The announcement of the film itself at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 was met with lots of positive buzz, and everything that's come from the Warner Bros/Legendary Pictures production since then has only added to that. 

Kong: Skull Island is set to star Brie Larson, who's going to play Captain Marvel in 2019 (and is reportedly going to pop up in Avengers: Infinity War), as well Tom Hiddleston, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Goodman.

There's a new banner for Kong: Skull Island which you can see right here:

Don't Expect Any Major X-men Crossovers In Deadpool Sequel, Say Writers

3 hours ago

With Deadpool coming out and taking the world by storm last year, you'd think Fox would suddenly want to put all of their eggs in Wade Wilson's basket. After all, people sparked much more to the low-budget, refreshingly edgy Deadpool than they did to the big, glossy blockbuster that was X-Men: Apocalypse. One prevailing bit of Hollywood logic would have you think they'd try to either get the Deadpool character into the next X-Men movie, or get some major X-Men players into the next Deadpool movie in order to capitalize on his popularity.

According to the writers, they're perfectly happy leaving Deadpool in his own little corner of the X-Men Cinematic Universe.

In a chat with Collider, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick made clear that they have no intention of bringing in any A-list X-Men to spice things up for Deadpool 2, and here's why:

Dwayne Johnson May Turn To Longtime Collaborator To Direct DC's Shazam!

4 hours ago

Ever since a big meeting last week week, where DC Cco Geoff Johns sat with megastar Dwayne Johnson and producers Hiram Garcia and Beau Flynn to discuss the future of the DC Extended Universe and see where Shazam! fits into things, there's been new buzz building around the film. Johnson has been attached to flick for two years now, having signed on to play Black Adam, and he's now feeling very confident about the project. Something that may very well be adding to his confidence is that Warner Bros. may hire a longtime collaborator of his to helm Shazam!

According to a rumor, started by Batman-News, Johns may tap Brad Peyton to direct Shazam!

Peyton and Johnson have worked together on Journey 2, San Andreas, and are set to make Journey 3, San Andreas 2, and Rampage together. So it's quite clear that Johnson loves what Peyton brings to the table. He »

Red & Green Band Trailers For Woody Harrelson's Wilson Are Here!

4 hours ago

Woody Harrelson's next film, Wilson, is set to make its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. We'll have our own Edward Douglas attend the festival in order to see and review the film, which is an adaptation of the graphic novel by the same name from Daniel Clowes. Clowes wrote the script for the film.

Wilson's got a couple of new trailers. One Red Band and one Green! Check them both out right here:

"Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met.  In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her."

Wilson also stars Laura DernJudy Greer, Cheryl Hines and Isabella Amara, and was directed by Craig Johnson »

Annabelle Is Back With This Creepy Photo For The Horror Sequel

4 hours ago

Annabelle 2 is set to come out later this year, and the good folks over at New Line Cinema are hoping to build on the following created by the first film, which was a spinoff from James Wan's very successful horror film The Conjuring. The Annabelle doll was introduced in that film, and she sparked enough interest to get her own flick. The first Annabelle made $257 million when it came out in 2014, on a budget of only $6.5 million.

Annabelle 2 is being directed by David F. Sandberg, who directed last summer's very well-received scary movie Lights Out. The film is set to star Stephanie Sigman (“Spectre”), Talitha Bateman (“The 5th Wave”), Lulu Wilson (upcoming “Ouija 2,” “Deliver Us from Evil”), Philippa Coulthard (“After the Dark”), Grace Fulton (“Badland”), Lou Lou Safran (“The Choice”), Samara Lee (“Foxcatcher,” “The Last Witch Hunter”), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony Lapaglia »

5 Hilarious Quotes From Mr. Poe In Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events!

18 hours ago

Welcome to The Top 5, where every week, we list five things for a given topic. These topics can range from "5 Things We Liked About The Power Rangers Teaser Trailer" to "5 Things We Want (Or Don't Want) In Ben Affleck's The Batman."

Of course, because everyone has an opinion, there is sure to be some disagreements, which is why, despite the title "The Top 5," very rarely are these actual "best of" articles. Instead, they're meant to provide entertaining insight, and to stir a discussion, and give everyone a chance to speak their mind. 

If you have a suggestion for a Top 5 piece, send them my way via #TheTop5LRM on Twitter. If I choose your topic, I'll be sure to give you a shoutout!

Dceu: The WB's Bizarre Bookkeeping Strikes Again, As 'Banned' Producer Made $50M on Man Of Steel, More!

19 hours ago

Something I've touched on many times before is that the accounting offices over at Warner Bros. deserve a closer look. If you follow box office analysis like I do, you'll come across experts in the field making claims like Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix actually Lost money for the studio, despite earning $938 million worldwide (I'll include a link to that in the Source). You'll also hear about the idea that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice needed to make something like $900-$920 million in order to be profitable, meaning the $827M it made actually leaves Warner Bros. in the red!

A new report from The Hollywood Reporter reveals exactly what kinds of practices often lead Warner Bros. to doing anything but "laughing all the way to the bank" when their movies fail critically but seemingly do so well financially.

Hot Rumor: Is Wonder Woman In Trouble?

20 hours ago

Just when I thought Wonder Woman may be the only good DC Extended Universe movie coming out soon, one of the panelists, Sasha Perl-Raver, on a recent episode of Schmoes Know is alluding to Wonder Woman being as convoluted as Batman v Superman. Take this with a grain of salt, as Schmoes Know is not usually associated with scoops, and in theory, this is one person's opinion. Check this quote out from their inside source as featured in episode #265 at the 1:41:30 video mark below.

"So, I don't want to throw anyone under the bus. We have somebody within our community who has gotten insider information that broke my effing heart this week, because I have tremendous belief that Wonder Woman is gonna be awesome and I heard it stinks from the same person who told me that they heard that BvS stinks...The person who I spoke to. »

Step Back, We Have Another Infinity War Confirmation

22 hours ago

Ok, I have already given a warning "be prepared for these" and every time an actor gets confirmed for Infinity War, usually by their own doing, it is our duty to report it to you. We have another today as Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, has confirmed in a quote with the BBC (gasp) that she will indeed be in Avengers: Infinity War.

And then I’ll be making a little appearance in the next Avengers movies.

Boom. Confirmed.

However, let's examine the aspect of this sentence, "Making a little appearance." Will this be a 20 second appearance, a flashback, or perhaps a quick death scene? Or maybe she is underplaying it and she is a huge part. We will know more in a few months when one of my favorite franchises of all time, Guardians Of The Galaxy, returns.

Nebula is one of Thanos' daughters, along with Gamora. He has »

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

Green Lantern Corps: Sterling K. Brown Throws His Hat Into The Arena

17 January 2017 9:30 AM, PST

It is quite possible that the most exciting thing the Dceu fans have to look forward to is the announced Green Lantern Corps movie. Honestly, it may be the best thing after I am sure we all will take a huge dump on Justice League, The Flash, The Batman, Cyborg (unlikely it will ever happen) and gees what else is there? Oh Ya, Wonder Woman -- and this may be the exception, as we learned that Ares will be the villain, and I think that alone may make this film decent'ish. Ok, I get it, I am being a fanboy here, but I still have high hopes for 2020+ as David Goyer is co-writing Glc with Geoff Johns behind the wheel, and already one notable actor is clamoring for the John Stewart role.

Black Panther Movie To Have A Flashback To The 1990s Bay Area

17 January 2017 8:47 AM, PST

While the narrative of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that’s relatively straightforward, it’s also a film franchise that’s filled to the brim with flashbacks and dream sequences. Even Captain America: The First Avenger almost serves as one gigantic flashback — one that serves as the bed and foundation on which much of the McU. Of course, that wasn’t the last time they hopped back in time. Ant-Man started out in 1989, and Captain America: Civil War had constant flashbacks to The Winter Soldier in the 1990s.

In short…flashbacks are a thing, and it only makes sense that some films would go on to utilize them as the universe expanded and thrived. Thanks to a new report from — of all places — The East Bay Times — it now sounds like next year’s Black Panther will have a key 1990s flashback that will definitely give some East »
