Spotlight Trailer Exposes A Religious Scandal, Looks Powerful

18 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While it.s tempting to place the title Spotlight over the tagline, "Batman and The Hulk team-up to fight corruption," the solemnity of the subject matter makes that impossible. The film, starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, and other impressive cast members, actually tackles a serious real-life issue that devastated a Catholic-packed Boston. Check out the drama.s debut trailer below. It.s certainly a familiar premise. A ragtag group of righteous reporters stumbles onto a stunning scandal, prompting the various powers-that-be to stonewall, as frightened, would-be whistleblowers slam doors in the faces of the embattled investigators. Conventionality aside, Spotlight may not look so much to recapture the magic of the muckraking movie genre embodied by classics like All the President.s Men, or later efforts like The Insider, but it nevertheless stands as a potential gateway to deeper conversation to a subject that has had its share of headlines in »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Batmobile Described As “Sexy Tank,” Designer Talks Tumbler Differences And Batwing

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you haven’t already had your fill of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, following new stills, interviews and the fact that it will feature a “f*cked up” Caped Crusader, Empire Online’s coverage of Zack Snyder’s event film has brought forth further information about next year’s tentpole, specifically in relation to Bruce Wayne’s vehicular companions. After all, we can’t let Bats and Supes have all the attention now, can we?

Long before Warner Bros. released any official footage from Dawn of Justice, it was the Batmobile that drew a lot of interest thanks to a slew of leaked photos, forcing Snyder’s hand to debut the official snap you see above. As a mishmash of the hulking Tumbler and elongated speedster from Tim Burton’s films, the new take on the Batmobile is quite unique in style, and Production Designer Patrick Tatopoulos would »

'Batman v Superman' Photos Show the Heroes Fighting in the Rain

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following three new photos that arrived yesterday courtesy of Empire, we now 7 more glorious images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The usual suspects are all here, and of course we get to see more from the title bout at the heart of this superhero tale. Judging from everything else we've seen so far, the movie, a follow-up to 2013's Man of Steel, will spend a huge chunk of its runtime focused on this brawl between two of DC Comics most iconic heroes. But there are other characters in the mix who will also get ample screen time, as these photos prove. Though today, villain Lex Luthor is no where to be found.

The first photo is one we saw just a few days ago. It has Kal-El and Bruce Wayne suited up, ready to go at it in the rubble of a destroyed building. Apparently, Batman has driven »

Chris Pine Joins 'Wonder Woman' in Multi-Picture DC Universe Deal

29 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Chris Pine will boldly go where maybe a few other men have gone before by joining the DC Cinematic Universe. According to TheWrap, the "Star Trek" hero has closed a deal to play Steve Trevor in the 2017 movie "Wonder Woman," which Patty Jenkins is directing for Warner Bros.

Steve will be a love interest for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, but he'll also have plenty of his own action. (It would be fun to see Chris in damsel in distress mode, for a change, but perhaps they won't go that route.) There are no details yet on his storyline, but TheWrap said Chris' deal includes multiple movies and sequel options. Wonder Woman will make her debut next year in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" before her own movie -- with Chris' Steve Trevor -- comes out June 23, 2017.

There was speculation that Chris might be playing another DC Comics character, »

'Wonder Woman' Gets Chris Pine as Boyfriend Steve Trevor

28 July 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two months after Chris Pine entered talks to portray Steve Trevor in Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, The Wrap reports that the actor has closed his deal for the coveted role. The deal reportedly includes options for multiple movies, so it's possible that he could also be popping up in Justice League Part 1, Justice League Part 2 or any of the other upcoming movies on Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate. The site also reveals that Steve Trevor will be "more than just a love interest" for Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, and there will be "plenty of action to keep him busy."

This deal also means that Chris Pine will not be playing Hal Jordan in another DC superhero movie, Green Lantern Corps. It was rumored that the Wonder Woman negotiations were a "smokescreen," and he was really in talks for Green Lantern Corps., but that proved to be untrue. »

Revisiting Top Secret! - the 1980s' most underappreciated comedy

28 July 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We rewatched the classic 1980s comedy, Top Secret! It took surgeons two weeks to wipe the smile off our face...

"Is this the potato farm?"

"Yes, I am Albert Potato"

If you're laughing at the quote above, then it's fair to say that you're already a Top Secret! fan. But if you're wondering what that actually means, then chances are you've missed out on one of the very best comedies that the 1980s had to offer.

Now the classic comedy Airplane!, rightfully, has been the beneficiary of some hugely forensic work, just to try and keep on top of its many, many background jokes. In fact, one DVD edition had a special feature just to point out all the things you may have missed on your first, tenth or fiftieth time around. Turns out there were quite a few in my case.

Movie Review – The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (2015)

28 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, 2015.

Directed by Jon Schnepp.

Featuring Tim Burton, Jon Peters, Kevin Smith, Dan Gilroy, Wesley Strick, Colleen Atwood, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Grant Morrison.

Synopsis:

A documentary about the proposed 1998 Superman Lives feature film that would have starred Nicolas Cage.

Despite never making it to the screen, Superman Lives is a project which it seems will live forever in infamy. Directed by Tim Burton, and with Nicolas Cage set to lead the cast as Superman, it spent several years in development before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug just weeks before cameras started rolling, leaving fans to forever wonder ‘what might have been’. Well, thankfully we now have writer-director Jon Schnepp’s documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? to peel back the curtain on Burton’s offbeat take on the Man of Steel as it attempts to answer that very question.

For fans of comic book movies, »

Trailer Trashin’: The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic-Con Trailer Shot By Shot

28 July 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers, and I hope a lot of you have gotten out to see Ant-Man at this point. To help make up for my recent absence, this week’s return of Trailer Trashin’ brings you my looks at both of the big DC Comics movie trailers to come out of San Diego Comic-Con earlier this month. Now, I use my X-ray vision on the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Premise: Gotham City’s own vigilante, Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck), travels to Metropolis to take on Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill), fearing what would happen if the latter is kept unchecked. As Batman and Superman confront one another, a new threat arrives to put mankind in greater danger than it has previously known.

My take: Before we start, I’ve decided to again change the format I use for these columns. In order to »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »

'Batman v Superman' Photos Show Off Lex Corp Industries

28 July 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production began to heat up on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice two years ago, we got various reports on what type of villain Jesse Eisenberg is playing in bringing Lex Luthor to the screen. Rumors claimed that he was from new money, comparing him to Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. One of the constant teases was that this Lex had his own baseball court inside Lex Corp Industries. New photos prove that true. The second trailer that debuted at Comic-Con showed Lex walking across the bullet littered floor of his destroyed offices, passing deflated basketballs. Now we see Lex standing proudly on this court, in front of his glorious neon sign, before any damage is done. It hints at a much more youthful Lex. A brat. Someone who is possibly quite immature.

That's not the only new photo we get from Empire, who are running a feature »

Oscar Winning Villain Performances

26 July 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The performance of an actor playing a villainous role can sometimes be the most interesting part of the film. This is an in-depth look at some of those performances which were awarded with an Oscar.

To get a good character in film, you have to develop that character. The audience needs to see the world through their eyes in order to understand their perspective and motivations. This is especially true with villains, which are arguably more difficult to develop than a traditional protagonist. Often times villains are given the short end of the characterization stick in any given film, which makes sense. It’s not easy making an action that could hurt or harm other people seem logical, so many films don’t put much effort into it. The audience recognizes a villain when they see one, and they know he is bad because of his actions, no matter how questionable they may be. »
