Set in the early days of James Gordon's police tenure, when he meets a young boy named Bruce Wayne, Gotham and Fox TV have issued a casting announcement for a ten-year-old boy to play the future Batman in this DC Comics-based drama series.
TV Show Auditions broke the news this morning, as the weekly crime series set within the Batman universe begins searching for its primary cast members.
The basis of the show will revolve around Commissioner Gordon having to chase down and capture the villains that have made Gotham City famous over the years. The crime drama was given a direct-to-series order by Fox, who won an intense bidding war for the Warner Bros. Television rights.
The pilot episode is set to begin shooting this March, and will center on Gordon as a rookie homicide detective investigating the double murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Future episodes »

The release of Cinema Paradiso was the point at which foreign-language film developed a new sheen for global audiences – complete with heartwarming stories and a hint of the exotic
• Cinema Paradiso: watch the trailer for the 25th anniversary edition
From the start, Cinema Paradiso carries itself like one of the classics its adorable scamp gazes at, open-mouthed, from the projection room. It has an adorable scamp, for starters – and plenty besides: the timeless Sicilian locations, the Felliniesque social carnival, the thunderbolt love affair, humanism lashed about as freely as olive oil. Giuseppe Tornatore's film is a cosy passeggiata down a celluloid Möbius strip looping art into life. When it arrived in the Us in February 1990 – all gilded sequences and grand themes – it seemed like the distillation of the idea of classic foreign cinema.

The Flash makes his debut on CW’s “Arrow” in the Dec. 4 episode, and don’t worry, because if you blink, you won’t miss him. That’s because the fleet-footed hero actually won’t have any powers – yet – as he’s introduced in the first of a two-part appearance on the show, in advance of what will, if all goes according to plan, turn into a regular-series gig next season.
In the good-news dept., Grant Gustin, perhaps best known for a recurring stint on “Glee,” seems like a savvy choice to play this youth-ified version of the DC Comics character, which not only dovetails with the CW’s overall profile but with the animated version of the Flash, who, as part of the Justice League, has occupied the role of youngish smartass.
Still, there’s something mildly ironic about the Flash – one of DC’s better-known second-tier players – potentially »

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.

Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »

Since the advent of the DVD and special features, deleted scenes have become common knowledge to even the most casual moviegoer and television watcher. They are almost as essential a characteristic of the audience experience as the bits that actually make it into the finished production.
Every once in a while, a line will appear in a movie or TV show that doesn’t quite add up. In other words, there’s a reference to something that doesn’t appear at all in the rest of the movie or show you’re watching.
Often that can just be put down to bad writing, or empty-headed characterisation. But occasionally, it comes down to an editorial decision, when someone axed the scene the character was referring to, but then neglected to clean up the waves created elsewhere in the script.
It seems hard to believe that after spending millions of dollars on »

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.

Terry Gilliam once told a story of how he dealt with animator’s block while working on the first series of Monty Python, and how his refuge was the National Gallery. There the painting would leap out at him, talk to him, throw their own ideas from the walls right at him. These trips to the galleries inspired the graphical nonsense which peppered the Pythons’ sketches, including a certain Bronzino foot which would become a very famous appendage.
In the first in a series of videos filmed by Tate Britain director Christopher Nolan discusses his own relationship with the art world and in particular with the works of Francis Bacon and their influence on one of the main grotesques in his Dark Knight Trilogy.

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2000, and another 25 overlooked gems...
The new millennium brought with it an eclectic range of hit films. Hong Kong action director John Woo brought us Mission: Impossible II, the most profitable film of the year at the box office. Ridley Scott enjoyed one of the biggest critical and financial successes of his career with Gladiator, while Robert Zemeckis created a memorable drama with Tom Hanks and a ball named Wilson in Cast Away.
From a comic book movie standpoint, 2000 was also a key year. X-Men not only established a successful film franchise which is still going, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past out next year, but also headed up a wave of big-budget Marvel adaptations which shows no sign of slowing down.
As ever, we've travelled far outside the »
An interesting connection between Tim Burton's Batman and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight has just come to light as the folks at the newly refurbished Tate Britain sent me some videos featuring directors such as Nolan, Mike Leigh and Ken Loach talking about how certain artists inspired their work. To begin, for Nolan he focuses on the work of Francis Bacon, revealing how he couldn't find the right words to describe the look he wanted for the smeared clown make-up on Heath Ledger's Joker so he turned to a book of Bacon's art to relay his vision to Ledger's make-up artist, John Caglione Jr.. While it's always interesting to see a filmmaker's inspiration, what's even more interesting about this, to me, is the connection it draws between Nolan's Joker and Jack Nicholson's turn as the Joker in Burton's 1989 film. Just below is the Tate Britain short with Nolan, »

The shining black car, which will be auctioned on November 30 at Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands, Surrey, comes with a fully operational flame thrower and hydraulic suspension, Metro.co.uk reported.
The rear- wheel drive Batmobile can reach a speed of 60mph in less than five seconds.
Meanwhile, it is worth noting her that the original TV Batmobile was sold for 2.3 million pounds earlier in 2013. (Ani) »

Detective Comics Volume 3: Emperor Penguin is a dual-edged sword of energy and suspense served up by DC Comics. Not only do we get appearances from Oswald Cobblepot, but ones from Poison Ivy, Joker, Clayface, and new villains like the Merrymaker and the title character. I know there've been many complaints about the "New 52," but count me as impressed.
Made up of issues #13 through #18, Detective Comics Volume 3: Emperor Penguin has the Dark Knight fighting to keep his head above water as new villains pop up in Gotham City looking to make their marks. Oswald Cobblepot is called back to Arkham Asylum by the Joker, leaving his assistant in charge of things until he can get back. His aide is more than willing to step up and take over completely, naming himself Emperor Penguin and claiming Cobblepot's businesses as his own.
