It’s time to go back… Back To The Future Part IV has a trailer

10 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Okay, so don’t worry. There is not a Back To The Future Part IV, but there is a new very well-made fan trailer that uses elements of old commercials, movies and other bits an pieces to create a faux trailer for a potential fourth movie… and it’s not half bad.

The trailer was created by the folks at Smasher over on You Tube, with the video having over 1 million plays in under a week.

Both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd appear in the trailer (naturally), and you can check it out below.

Back to the Future 4 Fan-Made Trailer Is Amazing

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The fan-made Back to the Future 4 trailer is setting the Internet on fire. Fans of Back to the Future have been wondering about a possible addition to the franchise for over 25 years and a new movie does not seem to be possible at this time. A Back to the Future Broadway musical has been in the works since 2004 and was just recently postponed, but that's not exactly what most fans are looking for, is it?. What fans are looking for is exactly what this fan-made trailer delivers.

The Back to the Future 4 fan-made trailer uses footage from Michael j. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprising their iconic roles of Marty McFly and Doc Brown over the past 10 years. Footage from commercials including Toyota, Lego Dimensions, Garbarino, and Jimmy Kimmel Live are creatively edited together in a cohesive manner that almost feels like the real thing. And as the video views continue »

Great Scott! Would you want to see Robert Zemeckis direct The Flash?

19 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Are you telling me that the director of Back to the Future could be about to helm the next big Dceu film, The Flash? If new rumours are to be believed the legendary filmmaker is in talks with Warner Bros about taking over the long-gestating project, according to Screen Junkies.

Zemeckis would certainly be something a coup for the studios having had plenty of trouble trying to get this film of the ground. But with his directorial style and his recent embracing of 3D, it could be a match made in heaven. Most recently, he made Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard-starrer Allied, and has made such films as Cast Away, The Walk, Romancing the Stone and What Lies Beneath.

The film has had a checkered production history so far: Originally it was set to be made by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (The Lego Movie) but »

The Flash movie: Robert Zemeckis rumoured to direct

19 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Simon Brew Rob Leane Apr 28, 2017

Rumours have gone into overdrive that iconic director Robert Zemeckis is circling the movie version of The Flash...

Of all the Dceu's superhero flicks, The Flash has had arguably the bumpiest ride yet.

See related  The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 21 review: The Separation Agitation The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 20 review: The Recollection Dissipation The Big Bang Theory season 10 episode 19 review: The Collaboration Fluctuation

First, there was the general confusion over why the character of Barry Allen was to be recast when Grant Gustin was doing such a bang-up job on the small screen.

Then, the film lost two directors in a row in the forms of Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa.

The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller also looked to be in charge of the script at one point, but they eventually moved on to the Han Solo movie and beyond, »

A Sight for Sounds: Moments in Movies Instantly Elevated by the Use of Music

19 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

When Guardians of the Galaxy was first released in 2014 for all its quirk and swagger the thing that really separated it from the rest of the Marvel pack was its use of music. Director James Gunn revealed that the film’s composer, Tyler Bates, had written large chunks of the score first so that they could film to the actual music. In many ways the film’s personality is its score, and with the release of the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in cinemas this week audiences can expect more of the same.

Music is probably the most important thing in cinema for instantly establishing mood, tone and visual cues. From the menacing piano keys of John Williams’ memorable score in Jaws to the sheer elation of Alan Silvestri’s triumphant overture in Back to the Future, a film’s accompanying score is often as unforgettable as the movie itself. »

Will Robert Zemeckis direct The Flash for Warner Bros?

23 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Screen Junkies are reporting that none other than Back To The Future, Castaway and Forrest Gump helmer Robert Zemeckis is in talks with Warner Brothers to direct The Flash, the stand-alone superhero movie that will be lead by Ezra Miller.

The film has had many bumps in the road on its journey to the big screen. Seth Grahame-Smith and Dope director Rick Famuyiwa were both set to direct before jumping ship, but now it looks like Zemeckis could be the man to fill the position. However, comments jumped up online about the news of Zemeckis’ potential involvement with Umberto Gonzalez from The Wrap saying that he had purely just taken a meeting with the studio, who are still talking with other directors.

Here’s the tweet in question.

Not true. Not in talks. He took a meeting and that is it. They’re still meeting with other directors. https://t. »

The Flash Movie May Get Director Robert Zemeckis?

27 April 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It is no secret that DC's production of The Flash feature length movie has had trouble taking off, but that could all change soon. It was reported back in February that Warner Bros was rumored to be taking the project back to square one after the loss of two directors, most recently Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and original director Seth Grahame-Smith (Lego Batman). The Flash was supposed to launch in early 2018 and has been pushed to 2020, which still seems to be totally unrealistic at this time. The Flash is not the only DC movie to be going through some creative problems, both Bat Man and Cyborg have had very public stalls and stutters.

But, could this all turn around for The Flash? Screen Junkies is reporting that sources close to the project say that Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) is rumored to take over the flailing project. It is also »

Rumour: Robert Zemeckis in talks to direct DC’s The Flash

27 April 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having passed through the hands of Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, it looks like Warner Bros. may have potentially found its next director for The Flash solo movie, with Screen Junkies reporting that Back to the Future and Forrest Gump helmer Robert Zemeckis is in talks with Warner Bros. about the film.

‘Ace Scooper’ El Mayimbe quickly jumped on the report, stating that it’s “not true” Zemeckis is in talks and that Warner Bros. are still meeting with other directors.

Not true. Not in talks. He took a meeting and that is it. They're still meeting with other directors. https://t.co/I6jcXsmcVa

— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) April 27, 2017

Given Mayimbe’s track record, the ink is probably drying on Zemeckis’ contract as we speak…

Joking aside, this should be treated as a rumour until we hear something official, but the prospect of Zemeckis taking on a superhero movie is certainly a tantalising one. »

So, according to Screen Junkies, Back To The Future's Robert Zemeckis is "in talks" to direct Warner Bros. long-gestating The Flash movie. Which, oh my God, that's exciting!  For one, there's an old-school whimsy to a lot of his films that would fit perfect with this incarnation of The Flash. Sure Zemeckis has delved into dark territory... Read More »

The Flash: Robert Zemeckis Reportedly In Talks To Direct The DC Film!

27 April 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The DC Extended Universe has had an interesting last 12 months or so. In that span, we’ve seen sequels and spinoffs announced left and right, we’ve seen directors come and go from The Batman, and of course, we’ve also seen Rick Famuyiwa depart from his directing duties for The Flash. This was especially disheartening, since Famuyiwa had really shown his storytelling chops in Dope, and audiences were really looking forward to seeing how it would transfer over to the likes of The Flash.

However, when one door closes, another opens. Just like Ben Affleck leaving The Batman paved the way for Matt Reeves to take the helm, Famuyiwa’s departure has left the seat open for another real talent to board the project. The man on deck to take said helm is none other than Robert Zemeckis. If you somehow do not recognize Zemeckis’ name, he’s the »

Report Suggests Robert Zemeckis Is The Latest Director Circling The Flash

27 April 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Screen Junkies brings word today that Back to the Future‘s Robert Zemeckis has entered early talks to helm The Flash for Warner Bros.

Following the back-to-back departure of Seth Grahame-Smith and Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa, Barry Allen’s solo movie entered a state of limbo to the extent that the Powers That Be quickly ordered a total overhaul of the film’s screenplay. Casting the net in search of a replacement director has been the next port of call, and though he was seemingly one of the many filmmakers shortlisted for Suicide Squad 2, three weeks ago Jonathan Levine‘s name became attached to The Flash. Alas, one would assume that Levine has since dropped out of the race based on this new development, with Zemeckis emerging as the new (and possibly final?) frontrunner.

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s important to place Screen Junkies »

The Flash 'The Once And Future Flash' Review

26 April 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After a three week break The Flash returned last night with Barry traveling to the year 2024 to try and gain any advantage he could over Savitar.  What Barry wasn't expecting is how bad things would get in the future after the death of Iris.  Barry had become so obsessed with finding out how to save Iris that when he does fail it will fracture the team in the future.  This season Barry has forgotten about what he has learned about himself since becoming the Flash the he is doing more harm than good for the team.  Being obsessed with saving Iris has made him forget to be the superhero that he is and sacrifice his feelings for the good of others.  Grant Gustin and Carlos Valdez did an amazing job of transforming to their future selves and showing the hurt and anguish Iris's death brought to the team.

Rick and Morty Creator Has Been Trolling Movie Studios for a Very Long Time

Did you know that Rick and Morty was actually intended to be a more direct spoof of the movie Back to the Future with the title “Doc and Mharti?” It’s true.   Series creator Justin Roiland said: I actually made this as a way to poke fun at the idea of getting cease and desist letters. At the time (October 2006) I had nothing to lose and my original intention was to call this “back to the future: the new official universal studios cartoon featuring the new Doc Brown and Marty McFly” and then I’d just sit back and wait for

James Gunn Says Avengers 4 Is Not Titled Infinity Guantlet

25 April 2017 5:25 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Avengers 4 already has an interesting history, two years out from release. It was initially announced with the rest of Phase 3 as Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, complete with a logo, but was later changed to the working title of Avengers 4. Even after the title change, Marvel Studios announced that directors Anthony and Joe Russo were shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 simultaneously, like the Back to the Future or Matrix sequels. This also is no longer the case, with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige changing his tone last week, saying instead they will do one right after the other. Feige also revealed the title to Avengers 4 is being kept under wraps as it could prove to be a spoiler for Infinity War.

Albert Einstein, Comedy Icon? 9 Examples of How Film and TV Depict His Lighter Side

25 April 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The legacy of Albert Einstein cannot be overstated — even when we take the scientist’s accomplishments for granted, he’s one of our planet’s most famous pop culture figures, recognizable across generations. The way he’s been depicted on screen has ranged from well-researched takes on the man’s life, such as Nat Geo Channel’s new anthology series “Genius,” premiering today, to, shall we say, somewhat more out-there fare.
