'Gone With the Wind' Facts: 25 Things You Never Knew About the Most Popular Movie Ever Made

16 December 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Seventy-five years after the premiere of "Gone With the Wind" (on December 15, 1939), it seems that nothing -- not the passage of time, not the movie's controversial racial politics, not the film's daunting length, and not even the release of certain James Cameron global blockbusters -- can diminish the romantic Civil War drama's stature as the most popular movie of all time.

The film is certainly a formidable artistic achievement, a cornerstone of movie history, and a highlight of a year so full of landmark films that 1939 has often been called the greatest year in the history of Hollywood filmmaking. Each viewing of the four-hour epic seems to reveal new details. Still, even longtime "Gwtw" fans may not know the behind-the-scenes story of the film, one as lengthy and tumultuous as the on-screen romance between Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable). Producer David O. Selznick spent fortunes, hired »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Jimmy Olsen' ?

1 December 2014 5:06 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek images from the Detroit, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", revealing actor Scoot McNairy ("Halt and Catch Fire") filming a dialogue scene in the film, reportedly as reporter 'Jimmy Olsen':

"...Scoot is playing 'Jimmy Olsen', but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of 'Zod' vs 'Superman'. 

"His legs were pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs. 

"He now walks with prosthetic legs that will be realized with CGI FX, hence the green-screen socks worn by McNaairy on set. Jimmy doesn't blame Superman for the accident, but grateful to 'Kal-El' for saving the world..."

The comic book origins of Jimmy Olsen began as an unnamed 'office boy' debuted in DC's "Action Comics" #6 (November 1938). That character was also first introduced as 'Jimmy Olsen' in the »

​DC vs. Marvel: Who's Winning the Comics War on TV?

7 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At the multiplex, the age-old battle between DC Comics and Marvel Comics -- between the House of Superman and Batman and the House of Spider-Man and Iron Man -- there's no question that Marvel has been winning decisively for nearly two decades. But what about the battle between the two superhero universes on TV?

On the small screen, DC seems to be on top, as it has since virtually the dawn of television. Just in terms of sheer numbers, DC has four current primetime series ("Arrow," "The Flash," "Gotham," and "Constantine"), compared to just one for Marvel ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.").

A recent article at Salon pointed out this discrepancy, which naturally got the author in trouble with the Marvel faithful. Marvel defenders will tell you that "S.H.I.E.L.D." is much improved in its second season over its first, and that the DC characters, storylines, and even visuals seem thin by comparison. »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman vs. Superman vs. Captain America vs. Iron Man

27 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two weeks ago, in the span of about 24 hours, the universe of superhero movies rapidly expanded in a series of bizarre new directions. First came news that Marvel was actively considering making the next Captain America movie into the next Iron Man movie, in a story arc that would cull material from the mid-2000s mega-crossover "Civil War." Coincidentally or probably not, Warner Bros. chose that precise cultural moment to announce that they were planning a whole bunch of DC superhero movies. Wonder Woman? Aquaman? Cyborg? Check, check, checkeroo! Several readers wrote in with their own thoughts on the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. »

The Coen Brothers Add To Their Hail, Caesar! Cast

18 October 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Coen Bros. – Joel and Ethan – are among that rarified group of filmmakers whose every project is eagerly anticipated with the assumption of excellence. This writing and directing team have been producing the highest quality cinema for over thirty years, and have almost never put a foot wrong. Inevitably, their work attracts the most interesting and talented casts and, though they often collaborate with particular performers regularly, they never shy away from adding new people to their routine roster. Their next film, Hail, Caesar! is no exception.

Set amid the Hollywood studio system of the 1950s, Hail, Caesar! follows Eddie Mannix – a ‘fixer’ whose own talents are tested when a star disappears during filming. George Clooney makes his fourth Coen Bros. appearance (after O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading) in the lead role as Mannix, and will be supported by fellow Coen Bros favourites Josh Brolin »

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" - 'Aquaman'

15 October 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

'Aquaman', the 1940's DC Comics superhero, inspired by Marvel's 'Sub-Mariner', will join director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" in an introductory role that will become more prominent in Snyder's 2 follow-up films, "Justice League" and "Justice League- Part 2":

Actor Jason Momoa ("Game Of Thrones") will play DC Comics' 'Aquaman".

"'Aquaman' will be in the movie, because the fishes were affected due to the 'World Engine' under the ocean, as seen in 'Man of Steel'..."

Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the underwater 'King Of Atlantis' debuted in "More Fun Comics" #73 (November 1941), initially as a backup feature in DC's anthology titles, then starred in several volumes of a solo title. 

During the late 1950's and 1960's superhero-revival period known as the 'Silver Age', Aquaman was a founding member of the 'Justice League of America'.

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Who wins, then and now?

3 October 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

Ben Affleck as Batman: 11 Reasons Why You Should Stop Questioning It

25 July 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

News that Ben Affleck will play Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sparked some serious backlash last year, but given the recent pictures of him as the hero, we're convinced that Ben will nail his role as Bruce Wayne. Don't believe us? Drawing on his onscreen experience, his proven talents, and his real-life roles as dad and director, we're sharing 11 reasons why Ben Affleck will be a Batman to remember: 1. He Has Superhero Experience . . . Ben made his superhero debut back in 2003 when he donned a red latex suit for Daredevil, and he suited up again in 2006 for Hollywoodland as George Reeves, one of the actors who played Superman. 2. . . . But He's Come a Long Way Since Daredevil Ok, so maybe Daredevil wasn't the most successful superhero film, but that movie came out 10 years ago. (And, for the record, so did Gigli.) Over the past decade, Ben has raised his acting game, »

Comics to Read Before You Die #2: Superman for All Seasons

23 July 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest edition of Comics to Read Before You Die, Jessie Robertson looks at Superman for All Seasons…

Issues: Superman: For All Seasons #1-4 (Sept- Dec 1998)

Writer: Jeph Loeb

Artwork: Tim Sale

Colors: Bjarne Hansen

Superman, at his core, represents what’s best in all of us, the common man, just with the means to take action. He’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, he can change the course of mighty rivers and much , much more. He is an American symbol of doing the right thing, obeying the law and giving bad guys their comeuppance. As time has went on, comics turning more and more radical, nobody wanting plain black and white heroes, Superman had to change and become more gritty. Superman was the greatest hero ever, there was nothing he couldn’t do, but to readers who wanted more depth from their »

10 ace takes on the Doctor Who theme music

20 July 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As we ponder how series 8's music will sound, Jeff digs out ten inventive takes on the Doctor Who theme...

Feature

With series eight’s Deep Breath fast approaching, there are questions all Dw fans will be asking – perhaps none as pressing as “What new bag of tricks will Murray Gold be bringing to the theme song?” While we all wait with bated breath, why not take a gander at these variations on Ron Grainer’s immortal work?

Doctor Who Theme – Gallifrey Remixes (Dominic Glynn and Syzygy)

Dominic Glynn’s theme from Trial Of A Timelord is an 80s effort that’s worn well for this writer, particularly the way Glynn sneaks in a new array of far-out soundscapes. This remix, originally performed at L.A.’s Gallifrey One convention, features four upgrades of Glynn’s ‘Trial’ theme, as produced with Syzygy (a.k.a. Justin Mackay). It takes a »

Further to our breaking report here, a popular DC Comics superhero is now confirmed to join director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" in an introductory role that will become more prominent in Snyder's follow-up film, "Justice League":

Josh Brolin and George Clooney to Star in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar

9 June 2014 4:51 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal Pictures have announced today that they will distribute the next movie from the Coen brothers (Hail, Caesar), making it the eighth collaboration between the trio.

However, that’s not the most exciting reveal to come out of the announcement as it has been confirmed that Josh Brolin will reteam with Joel and Ethan Coen after their last collaboration, No Country for Old Men. He will also be joined by previously rumoured cast member George Clooney.

Hail, Caesar will be directed by the Coen Brothers from their own original screenplay, and they will also produce the movie alongside Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan of Working Title Films.

So, what’s Hail, Caesar about exactly?

Well, it has recently been described as being set in the 1950s and focusing on a “fixer” who worked for the studios to protect the stars of the day (think Ray Donovan). The lead character will be Eddie Mannix, »

Dr. Fredric Wertham: The Man Who Almost Killed the Comic Book Industry

4 June 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In the 1950s, a lone psychiatrist almost did what all the super villains in the world could never do…he put super heroes out of business. The noted doctor virtually destroyed the super hero medium. Who was this man Wertham and how did a single voice almost derail an entire industry? 

The latter half of the 1950s was a wasteland for super hero books. After 15 years as a lucrative medium, the publication of Dr. Fredric Wertham’s book “Seduction of the Innocent” resulted in those super-powered men-in-tights being shoved into limbo, causing the comic book industry to reevaluate its material and switch to more comedy-oriented material and less action themed books. How did one man accomplish all this?

First of all, let it be said that Dr. Wertham was not a charlatan or con man or a huckster. He was a noted psychiatrist, educated in the universities at Munich, Erlangen, »

Christopher Reeve: A tribute to the Greatest Superman of All, 10 Years After his Passing

30 May 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Christopher Reeve became a star 35 years ago by playing the title role in Superman: The Movie. He died in 2004. A decade later, we look back at the man who helped launch the superhero genre. 

Many people have played the character of Superman. Kirk Alyn was the first on film, followed by names like George Reeves, Gerard Christopher, Dean Caine, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, Henry Cavill and the voice work of Tim Daly.  However, the late, beloved Christopher Reeve has achieved a special place in the public’s hearts and remains the standard by which all future Supermen will be judged. Reeve’s magnetic, appealing performance as the man of steel helped to kick-start the entire super-hero genre, which had gotten no traction before the Reeve’s film.

Undoubtedly, the super hero genre really began in 1978 with the phenomenal success of director Richard Donner’s big budget adventure Superman: The Movie. »

Coen Brothers Plan "Hail Caesar"

16 May 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Joel and Ethan Coen are assembling their next feature project, the darkly comic 1950s Hollywood-set "Hail Caesar".

The story is set in the time of the old Hollywood star system and deals with Eddie Mannix, a man who works for the studios to protect the squeaky clean image of their under contract stars.

That means squashing scandalous stories before they happen be it sex, drugs, DUIs, etc. At the time, those threats had to be handled any means necessary be it bribes or threats, or use of things like illegal wiretapping.

It's unclear if Mannix in the script deals with the MGM VP of the same name, the husband of the woman whom had an affair with TV's then Superman George Reeves.
