Don't call it a comeback: Michael Keaton on biding time, waiting for a 'Birdman'

29 January 2015 11:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — It's been really easy for the media to talk about "Birdman" and Michael Keaton's award-winning performance in terms of being a "comeback," and of course, the meta angle of playing an actor who formerly starred as a superhero is just begging for attention. On one hand it's a fortunate hook to help sell the movie, but on the other, it's been a pretty simplistic reduction, not necessarily one that Keaton has had a big problem with, but one that could certainly be discussed with a little more nuance. You might have to go back to the late '90s for examples of the actor's work that really landed culturally, but in the time since, while he's certainly taken a few breathers, he's worked very consistently. He's done TV spots on popular shows. He's starred in acclaimed TV movies like "Live from Baghdad" and the TNT miniseries "The Company. »

"Birdman": 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'

29 January 2015 10:14 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca, Sneak Peek 'the good, the bad and the ugly' in "Birdman", starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone:

Michael Stevens For 'The Good':

"'Birdman' aka 'The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance' hurtles along as if in flight, with a single cinematic take, soaring over, under and around the inner demons haunting 'Riggan Thomson' (Michael Keaton) , a grizzled film actor turned stage director, eager to rebuild his reputation in the theater world ...

"...after famously portraying the iconic movie superhero 'Birdman'.

"The funny, clever script shows how vain, fragile and bird-brained actors can be, as they go through the hollow motions of life, when their true calling is in performance...

"...with a convincing ensemble cast, bopping along to a jittery jazz drum score by Antonio Sanchez...

"'Birdman' is a unique satirical feature, that kept me on the edge, »

Michael Keaton says he was lucky to be a part of Batmania

28 January 2015 10:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton has been asked about a sequel to "Beetlejuice" enough times to surely be sick of it by now, because the thing has moved at such a glacial pace there just isn't much to be said. But his work in the original film came at a time when his career was really taking off, and playing in the expressionistic world of Tim Burton in both that film and the first two "Batman" movies was a wholly new and exciting experience for him. In one, he helped build a character from the ground up, while in the other, he found himself at the center of a raging pop culture tempest. Both roles are iconic in their own ways, and looking back, Keaton can — as ever — find nothing but gratitude for getting to be a part of it. "Batman" in particular was a personal landmark, a movie that grabbed »

The '90s are alive and well with Frances Bean Cobain.Fresh off her moving red carpet reunion with her mom, Courtney Love, the daughter of the Hole rocker and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain showed her unique sense of style at Lax.Sporting a long graphic t-shirt, a denim jacket with Michael Keaton's "Batman" logo, black leggings, boots and dark makeup, Cobain looked like she stepped right out of the grunge era that made her parents famous.Her fiance, The Rambles singer Isaiah Silva, matched her throwback style -- sporting a "Beavis & Butt-head" tee as they walked through the airport.Now 22, it's clear Frances has been influenced by her mom and dad, at least when it comes to her clothes.Over the weekend, Cobain took a more high-fashion approach when she stepped out with her sometimes-estranged mother in Park City, Utah ... where the HBO documentary "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" had its big premiere. »

Amy Adams Talks About Ben Affleck in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

26 January 2015 5:03 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In a recent interview, Amy Adams talked about reprising her role as Lois Lane in Batman v Superman and Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman. According to Adams, Affleck is giving “his own take” to the popular character that has been previously portrayed by Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Read Adam’s comments below:

“He is going to be his own unique thing. He’s got a wonderful quality and a great body of work. I was only in one scene with him, I think I’m allowed to say that. So I didn’t get to see much, but what I saw was fantastic.”

The film wrapped up in December with a 2016 release date. In addition to Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Canvill is reprising his role as Superman and they are joined by Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Stay tuned for additional details. »

The Joker Will Probably Look Like This In Suicide Squad

26 January 2015 7:17 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Details on David Ayer.s planned Suicide Squad movie are hitting the Web at a rapid clip. Cast members are coming and going. Plot details are leaking. And we are discovering that Batman.s arch-nemesis . The Joker . will be a major player in the ensemble. and likely will look like so. The following article will dive into Suicide Squad spoilers. Proceed with caution. Jared Leto has confirmed that he will be playing the Clown Prince of Insanity in Suicide Squad, but plot details have informed us that, for now, The Joker will be locked away for the duration of the film and will be playing mind games on the villains in the Squad a la Hannibal Lecter. This suggests a juicy, scene-stealing role for Leto, and one that we hear might be teasing the Joker.s involvement in future DC movies . notably a Batman solo film. To that end, JoBlo »

Michael Keaton remembers Harold Ramis, tackling Shakespeare, Ron Howard's 'Gung Ho'

25 January 2015 7:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Santa Monica — Michael Keaton is having the time of his life. Cruising along an awards circuit that has brought him plenty of kudos for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and probably more opportunities to talk about himself than he'd prefer, he seems consistently high on life and not at all phased by the grind. He's not someone who has really sought out this kind of attention and acclaim, often retreating to his ranch in Montana away from the Hollywood fray, but now that he's feeling the love? Let's just say I doubt anyone's having as much fun with all of this than he is. On the eve of this year's Oscar nominations announcement, I met Keaton for coffee and a light lunch at one of his favorite Santa Monica spots to chew on as much of his career and the awards »

Steel-Alloy Batmobile Keychain

22 January 2015 4:11 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

My favorite Batmobile of all time is from Tim Burton's 1989 film Batman. The folks at Think Geek used digital files from the Warner Bros.' archive to create an accurate two inch steel-alloy replica of the Anton Furst design. At only $10, this might be a fun gift to buy for yourself (or other people).

As a kid, I had a die-cast version that was the same size. I took it everywhere, until I lost it. Thankfully I had a second one...which I also lost. As an adult, I now have much a much larger one, which I don't plan to lose anytime soon.

It was 75 Years Ago The Shadow hit the Comic Racks

21 January 2015 3:39 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Seventy-five years ago, The Shadow and Doc Savage made their four-color debut on January 21st, 1940 in Shadow Comics #1, which also featured the first comic book appearances of Nick Carter, Bill Barnes, Frank Merriwell, Iron Munro and a variety of other popular Street & Smith pulp characters.

With the possible exception of Walt Disney’S Comics & Stories, it is unlikely that any other comic magazine ever debuted with as many pre-proven famous characters. The Shadow had already starred in nearly 200 pulp novels and several films, while his weekly radio show had the highest audience ratings in daytime radio. Iron Munro was based on John W. Campbell’s novel The Mightiest Machine, one of the inspirations for Jerry Siegel’s Superman, and featured the exploits of a human born and raised under Jupiter’s high gravity who arrived on Earth to discover that his denser molecular structure gave him invulnerability, super strength and »

Mike Gold: Batman Resurrected

21 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

No, that’s not the title of the next Batman movie. Well, it might be. I suspect Warner Bros. hasn’t thought that far ahead. They’re too busy trying to make their Aquaman movie without giggling themselves to death.

A couple nights ago I was watching Batman Returns – you’ll recall that was Michael Keaton’s second and final Batflick. At the time of release, which was 1992, I thought it was an uneven movie. By and large, I liked the Catwoman stuff but I thought the Penguin parts were… foul. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen the movie, so when I surfed past it at a quarter-to-two in the morning, I thought it might be fun to check it out with my older and even more jaded eyes.

I was amused to discover the movie was broader than I remembered, but just as dark. It »

Batman May Appear In Suicide Squad, Get The Shocking Details

20 January 2015 7:29 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Among the juicy tidbits from yesterday.s plethora of Suicide Squad news was that The Joker, being played by Jared Leto, would be one of the three most important characters in the film. It was also mentioned, however, that his main nemesis, Batman, would only be referenced - which made sense considering that supervillains in the story are the main players. Now new information has come out, though, suggesting that Ben Affleck's Dark Knight will fill the 2016 blockbuster.s superhero void, and his presence will involve his white-skinned arch-villain. According to a report from Forbes, Batman might appear at some point during an "in-story" scene concerning The Joker. This would then set the stage for the Clown Prince of Crime being a possible villain for the Batman solo film, which would be partly inspired by Frank Miller.s 1986 story The Dark Knight Returns, a work that is also strongly »

Rumor: Ben Affleck's 'Batman' To Appear In Suicide Squad To Set Up Solo Movie

20 January 2015 4:10 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Some new story details about Suicide Squad found their way online yesterday (you can find those by clicking here if you missed them), and it was mentioned that Batman may make an appearance via some security footage being viewed by Amanda Waller. Forbes have now weighed in on that by claiming to have heard about an actual appearance by Ben Affleck's Caped Crusader.  Batman will apparently turn up at the end of the movie when The Joker escapes from jail, possibly setting up The Clown Prince of Crime as the lead villain in the planned solo movie for iconic DC superhero. The site adds that it, "will take some inspiration from Frank Miller’s comic book series The Dark Knight Returns — the third issue of which is a story about Batman facing off against an escaped Joker. I’m also told that Gotham City Police Commissioner Ellen Yindel (who »

Judy Greer Talks Ant-Man Story And “A Lot Of Comedic Improv”

19 January 2015 1:48 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those who felt let down by the first Ant-Man trailer’s lack of comedy can rest easy now that co-star Judy Greer – who plays the title character’s ex-wife – has spoken up about the film. In a new interview, the actress talked a bit about the story, her newfound love for the bite-sized Avenger, and how much comedy we can expect to see in the upcoming superhero blockbuster.

Judging by what we’ve seen of the film so far, the relationship between Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his daughter will be a major element of the story – something that Greer echoes in her comments:

“[Ant-Man is] my first comic hero that I’ve really researched and fallen for. I also think that the Ant-Man origin story that we tell in our movie is really beautiful and I think there’s something really real about a man trying to better himself for his family. »

Mike's Top Ten Films of 2014

19 January 2015 1:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I think a good way to judge whether or not you thought the past year of film was a good one is how difficult it was to compile your top ten of the year. Did you struggle to fill spots or were there a bunch of films vying for positionsc 2014 ended up in the latter category for me, which is a very good thing. I was impressed with the slate of films released this year, mainly from the smaller side. Major Hollywood studios did manage to crank out a couple of high quality, blockbuster entertainments, like Edge of Tomorrow and X-Men: Days of Future Past, which, in my opinion, is two more than they usually produce. Obviously, we are not far away enough to know how remembered 2014 will be, and if it is, for whatc Will people remember this as the year Marvel could put out whatever and people would »

The Precedent for an Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton Oscar Win

19 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.

Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.

For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »

Batman Returns' Danny DeVito Comments On Gotham's Penguin

18 January 2015 2:30 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin) may not be short and stout with flippers for hands like Danny DeVito's Penguin in Tim Burton's 1992 superhero film Batman Returns, but that hasn't stopped Taylor from becoming Gotham's breakout star. In past interviews Taylor had expressed being intimidated about taking on a role that was played so well by Danny DeVito and Burgess Meredith in the 1960s Batman television series. I'm sure he won't feel as intimidated when he hears what DeVito thinks of him. "I've watched the show. I think he's a very good young Penguin," DeVito said. "He's a terrific actor." We've seen actors that portrayed comic book characters on film or on past TV shows reappear on Smallville and The Flash, but would Danny DeVito be interested in returning to Gotham? "I don't know about that," DeVito told Access Hollywood. "Again, it's all about »

Danny DeVito: What He Thinks Of 'Gotham's' Penguin Actor

Danny DeVito has seen "Gotham" and he has given his seal of Penguin approval to Robin Lord Taylor's portrayal of the character.

"I've watched the show. I think he's a very good young Penguin," Danny said, when AccessHollywood.com asked the actor at Sunday's Television Critics Association Winter Tour if he had seen Robin playing Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin in "Gotham" on Fox. (Danny played the fully fledged villain in 1992's "Batman Returns," alongside Michael Keaton's Batman).

"He's a terrific actor," Danny added of Robin.

10 Overlooked Positives Of Batman Forever

18 January 2015 8:12 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Joel Schumacher is not a popular man among Batman fans. His Batman And Robin has gone down in history as one of the worst comic book movies ever made (or the worst, depending on who you ask) – his rubber nipple-suited Batman and glittery Mr. Freeze forever punning the film into the history books. It all turned out fine in the end, with Christopher Nolan and a very gruff Dark Knight subsequently rescuing his career with two of the greatest Batman movies of all time (plus the other one), but that does not make Batman And Robin any less terrible.

Often mentioned in the same breath as Batman And Robin is the film’s immediate predecessor, Schumacher’s Batman Forever. With director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton nowhere to be seen, Schumacher had the unenviable job of following up one of the most iconic superhero films of all time. »
