Alan Arkin Joins Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

17 August 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dumbo, Disney’s latest live-action remake of one of their classic animated films, has found yet another big name talent to add to its cast.

Variety has confirmed today that Argo‘s Alan Arkin has now signed up for the pic. A legendary actor and one who always impresses, this will mark the second time that Arkin’s teamed up with director Tim Burton, as the pair previously worked together on 1990’s Edward Scissorhands.

He’s not the only Burton regular to be roped in for the project, either. Former Beetlejuice and Batman star Michael Keaton is on board, as is his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito (who also worked with Burton on Mars Attacks! and Big Fish). Another Burton regular, Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), is involved as well, rounding out what’s a very impressive cast.

As you no doubt know, Dumbo »

Alan Arkin is the latest star to join the cast of Tim Burton's live-action remake of Dumbo.

According to Variety, Arkin joined the cast of Disney's Dumbo, which is currently in production in London at the moment. Arkin will portray J. Griffin Remington, a Wall Street tycoon. It is not clear what his part will exactly be. This live-action remake will follow Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell), a former circus star who deals with the struggles of returning from war. While »

You Only Live Once

31 July 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Fritz Lang continues his take-no-prisoners indictment of America’s curious relationship with crime; this time he presents the thesis that an innocent man can be a pawn in cosmic game of injustice. Three-time loser Henry Fonda, the glummest actor in ’30s films, doesn’t mean to rob or kill, but gosh darn it, They Made Him a Criminal. Those considerations aside, it’s a wonderful cinematic achievement, made all the better by a decent digital restoration.

‘Spider-Man Homecoming’: How Jon Watts Channeled John Hughes

14 July 2017 2:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When director Jon Watts (“Cop Car”) met with Marvel for the first time about “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” they told him to infuse the reboot with an ’80s John Hughes high school rite of passage focus. Watts was already there: “Pretty in Pink,” “The Breakfast Club,” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” were his touchstones.

“Those were the movies we grew up on,” Watts said. “I remember that age and you’re just constantly screwing up. You don’t know what to do yet,  and you don’t know where you fit into the world.”

Capturing the Hughes Vibe

With the decidedly younger Tom Holland making his rough-and-tumble Spidey debut in “Captain America: Civil War,” Watts had a valuable head start with “Homecoming.” This brainy teenage version of the superhero finds himself way in over his head, ditching class, canceling dates, and fumbling his way as a crime fighter. It truly was like channeling the late Hughes. »

The Best Movies About the Afterlife — IndieWire Critics Survey

10 July 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of David Lowery’s “A Ghost Story,” what is the best movie about the afterlife?

Kate Erbland (@katerbland), IndieWire

It will come as no surprise to anyone that, as a child, I watched a lot of television. A lot. I was mostly obsessed with HBO — our single movie channel, number 2 on the dial; yes, my childhood TV had a dial, don’t ask — with intermittent deviations into mostly inappropriate mini-series (thus explaining my rarely disclosed expertise on “The Thornbirds”), and was pretty much given free range to watch whatever the hell I wanted, whenever I wanted.

Alec Baldwin has been dominating pop culture headlines for the last year thanks to his trumped up impression of America's current Commander-in-chief.

Taped on stage last month at New York City's Apollo Theater, the show didn't have quite the same bite as the famed Comedy Central roasts.

Back in April it was reported that actor Michael Keaton could be set for a reunion with director Tim Burton, albeit on Disney’s live-action Dumbo remake, as opposed to the long-rumoured Beetlejuice sequel.

Well, speaking to Good Morning America to promote the release of his new film Spider-Man: Homecoming, Keaton has confirmed that he is set to play the villain in the new take on the Disney classic.

“I am reuniting with Tim Burton,” said Keaton. “You just want to be around that guy. You want to be in his sphere because he’s original and unique and an artist.”

Keaton and Burton first collaborated in 1988 on Beetlejuice, and followed it up with 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns.

Dumbo will also see Keaton reuniting with his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito, while Burton regular Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) is also attached »
