Marvel has given us a glimpse at some concept artwork from Ryan Meinerding for Matt Murdock’s iconic red suit in the Netflix series Daredevil, which looks pretty close indeed to the costume that made it on screen in the season finale…
“The tone that was really communicated was the sense of realism that they were going for,” Meinerding tells Marvel.com. “I think the way that [manifested itself in] the costume was through the armor and making it feel a little bit more padded than you traditionally think of Daredevil being. When we do these designs, there’s a concept of grounded and a concept of reality. The grounded nature that they brought to the vigilante costume was the simplicity and effectiveness, because you’re trying to conceal your identity but also [have to be] mobile enough to fight. When you do a super hero costume in that world, it’s hard to be as »

I’ve written a lot about horror musicals over the years on Icons of Fright, and it would appear that I’m not the only one out there with a deep and abiding love for musical adaptations of beloved horror films. Young Frankenstein, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Evil Dead, Carrie, American Psycho, The Silence Of The Lambs, Re-animator, and Little Shop Of Horrors are just a few horror films to get the musical theatre adaptation. Something about the combination of campy nature of spontaneously bursting into song and blood spraying everywhere is something many of us can’t get enough of. While I’m still waiting for Disney to get their shit together and make a Broadway version of Hercules, I’ve made myself a little dream list of horror films I hope get the musical treatment.
Fred Dekker’s deliciously campy masterpiece is just »

Two years after making his U.S. debut with the crackerjack kidnapping drama “Prisoners,” French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve ups his own ante with “Sicario,” a blisteringly intense drug-trade thriller that combines expert action and suspense with another uneasy inquiry into the emotional consequences of violence. A densely woven web of compelling character studies and larger systemic concerns, Villeneuve and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan’s bleaker, more jaundiced riposte to Steven Soderbergh’s 2000 “Traffic” may prove too grim and grisly for some audiences and too morally ambiguous for others. But with its muscular style and top-flight cast, this fall Lionsgate release should score solid (if less than “Prisoners”-sized) business from discerning adult moviegoers, along with dark-horse awards-season buzz.

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

The hallmark of a great character actor is familiarity even if you don.t know their name. Scott Glenn is one of those actors you recognize when you see him even if the name doesn.t ring a bell.

In the last couple of years, Glenn has made the segue to the »

Traditionally, the Oscars haven't been very comedy-friendly, but "Ricki And The Flash" is stacked with talent no academy could ignore. Written by Diablo Cody (Oscar winner for "Juno"), directed by Jonathan Demme (Oscar winner for "The Silence Of The Lambs") and starring Meryl Streep (winner of everything, always), the film follows the titular rock goddess as she attempts to reconcile with the family she neglected when fame came calling. Ricki's daughter is played by Streep's real-life daughter Mamie Gummer and her bandmate is played by real-life rock star Rick Springfield. Kevin Kline, Sebastian Stan and Empress of Broadway Audra McDonald also star. "Ricki And The Flash" comes out July 26. See it with your mom!

Scott Glenn has spent 35-plus years playing the toughest of tough men. Since his breakthrough performance as John Travolta's rival in "Urban Cowboy," he's played astronauts ("The Right Stuff"), cowboys ("Silverado"), vengeful bodyguards (the original "Man on Fire"), submarine commanders ("The Hunt For Red October") and FBI agents ("The Silence of the Lambs"), among other jobs, always looking lean, weathered, and alert of everything around him. With rare exceptions — a "Monk" two-parter years ago, a handful of TV movies — he's played all these roles on the big screen. His career started in television (his first two screen credits were minor guest spots on "The Patty Duke Show"), but unlike many of his contemporaries, Glenn never tried to take a regular TV job as he got older. Then last year, he agreed — with some reluctance — to play Kevin Garvey Sr., the possibly-crazy, possibly-psychic father of Justin Theroux's cop hero of HBO's "The Leftovers, »

Our look at underappreciated films of the 80s continues, as we head back to 1988...
Either in terms of ticket sales or critical acclaim, 1988 was dominated by the likes of Rain Man, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Coming To America. It was the year Bruce Willis made the jump from TV to action star with Die Hard, and became a star in the process.
It was the year Leslie Nielsen made his own jump from the small to silver screen with Police Squad spin-off The Naked Gun, which sparked a hugely popular franchise of its own. Elsewhere, the eccentric Tim Burton scored one of the biggest hits of the year with Beetlejuice, the success of which would result in the birth of Batman a year later. And then there was Tom Cruise, who managed to make a drama about a student-turned-barman into a $170m hit, back when $170m was still an »
This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."
The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Marvel kicked off its Netflix shows earlier this month with the release of the 13-part series Daredevil, but if Joss Whedon had his way, the Man Without Fear would never have appeared on the small screen, with the Avengers: Age of Ultron helmer telling IGN that he fought for a Daredevil movie from Marvel Studios.
“I fought for Daredevil to be a film instead of a TV show. Then under the auspices of Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight… I’m dying to see the show but they released it just as I started the press tour! If the show’s working, the show’s working. Comic books are serialised entertainment and a lot of them lend themselves to TV shows as much or more than they do to movies. I like [Daredevil] because he’s basically Marvel’s Batman, thanks to Frank Miller basically. So for me I didn’t think »

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.
It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.
But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.
Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.
In this exclusive interview, we sat down with the star of Netflix’s Daredevil Charlie Cox to talk about the first season, the upcoming second season, who he would like to see in the movie (Elektra and Black Widow!) and the chances of joining The Avengers.
Check out the interview below:
Marvel’s Daredevil is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night.

While over in London to promote Daredevil, Flickering Myth’s Deputy Editor Luke Owen caught up with Charlie Cox to talk about the series and look ahead to season two. With the new season being announced for next year, how will this affect the line up of other shows including Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders?
“Yeah, I don’t really know [how it affects The Defenders], that’s being discussed by people who are much more important than I am,” Cox told us. “If you watch the first season, you discover that it’s Matt Murdock’s evolution into Daredevil. So by the time we get to the end, we’ve only just touched on that. So I think it’s valid to have another 13 hours where we see Matt Murdock inhabit Daredevil and live in that persona. So we’ll do that this year and it will presumably be released next year, »
