Alan Arkin Joins Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

13 hours ago | 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 »

Disney's Dumbo Remake Gets Oscar Winner Alan Arkin

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alan Arkin is the latest star to join the cast of Tim Burton's live-action remake of Dumbo. The Academy Award winning actor joins Michael Keaton, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, and Colin Farrell in what is shaping up to be a pretty interesting remake as seen through the eyes of Tim Burton. Jon Favreau is currently working on a live-action remake of The Lion King and Disney is trying to remake everything they can after the smash success of the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

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 »

Justice League: Ben Affleck Says Justice League Will Have A More Traditional Batman

16 August 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With the many criticisms of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman, at least in my opinion (which is likely to be the minority), was one of the parts of the film that I liked most. I also didn’t hate the film in general like a lot of people did. This interpretation of the beloved character was somewhat different than we have seen on screen before. Following a much more grounded performance by Christian Bale in The Dark Knight trilogy, Affleck’s Batman lives in a world where super powered heroes exist. He also seemed to be more vengeful than any iteration of the Caped Crusader we have seen before.

Speaking with EntertainmentWeekly, Ben Affleck said we will see a Batman that is going have to do some things that he isn’t used to doing, asking for help.

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in September

16 August 2017 5:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

August has been Friends Month at Hulu, with the streaming service getting a big collection of movies and TV shows that are all about people who have friends or whatever, so it’s appropriate that September will be Family Month—a month dedicated to movies and TV shows about people who either have families or don’t have families because their parents were gunned down in an alley. In September, Hulu subscribers will be able to catch such family-centric content as The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Batman, Batman Returns, Carrie, My Girl, Robocop, And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird, Silent Hill, Freaky Friday (1977), Freaky Friday (2003), and Lilo & Stitch—though that one’s technically about ‘ohana, which means family.

Subscribers will also be able to watch a bunch of classic Tgif sitcoms, most of which revolve around families »

Joseph Gatt joins Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo

10 August 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production on Disney and Tim Burton’s Dumbo now well underway, Deadline is reporting that Joseph Gatt (Z Nation) has become the latest addition to the cast of the live-action adaptation of the animated classic, where he’ll portray a character called Skellig.

Gatt joins a cast that includes Colin Farrell (The Lobster), Michael Keaton (Beetlejuice), Danny DeVito (Batman Returns), Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), DeObia Oparei (Game of Thrones), Roshan Seth (Gandhi), Sharon Rooney (My Mad Fat Diary) and Douglas Reith (Downton Abbey), as well as newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.

Disney’s new live-action feature film “Dumbo” introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. »

Jennifer Lawrence Goes Crazy in Creepy Mother! Trailer

8 August 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Another horror movie may have just entered the awards season discussion. Director Darren Aronofsky, who is easily one of the most respected filmmakers working in the industry today, has assembled an all star cast for a brand new horror/thriller that looks to be a couple of cuts above what one usually expects from genre filmmaking. Now, the first full trailer for Mother! has arrived online, giving us a better sense of what to expect from this mysterious potential Oscar contender.

Paramount Pictures released the full trailer for Mother online just ahead of its September 15 release date after first releasing a very brief teaser last week. This trailer still doesn't give us much of what to expect in terms of story as it looks like Darren Aronofsky wants the mystery to unfold for the viewer. We do get that there is a couple living in a seemingly remote area in »

Will 'Goddess of Death' Cate Blanchett solve Marvel's female supervillain problem?

1 August 2017 4:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

While female baddies abound in Marvel comics, few have made the transition to the screen. But that’s about to change with Blanchett’s role in Thor: Ragnarok

When it comes to truly splendid villains, there’s nothing like a dame. From Tilda Swinton’s icy, curdled charisma in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) to Margaret Hamilton’s cackling Wicked Witch of the West in the classic 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz, female baddies are more than capable of holding their own in terms of offering up sheer, undiluted evil. Which makes it all the more disappointing that there have been so few in the superhero genre. Sure, there’s been the odd juicy role – Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns (1992) or Marion Cotillard as Talia al Ghul in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (2012). But more often than not, Hollywood’s »

Tim Burton has made a new addition to the cast of his live action adaptation of Disney’s Dumbo with Deadline reporting that Game of Thrones actor DeObia Oparei, who portrayed the Dornish bodyguard Areo Hotah, has signed on to portray ringmaster Rongo in the film.

Oparei joins Colin Farrell (The Lobster), Michael Keaton (Beetlejuice), Danny DeVito (Batman Returns), Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) and newcomers Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins. Also featuring in the cast are Roshan Seth, Sharon Rooney and Douglas Reith. The adaptation was written by Ehren Kruger.

La Pfeiffer Gets Waspy

25 July 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

No, not WASPy though perhaps she is that, too. As you've undoubtedly heard by now -- especially if you eagerly listened to the latest podcast -- Michelle Pfeiffer will co-star with Michael Douglas in Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018). While Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are playing the title characters, so are Douglas and Pfeiffer in a way since their characters Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne were the original heroes that went by those names. Douglas was introduced in the first movie if you'll recall and we were supposed to believe that Janet was dead.

Whether this means CGI-youngered flashbacks or merely exposition scenes with famous faces we won't know for some time but it's a nice treat for pfans and Pfeiffer's first superhero movie since her legendary work in Batman Returns (1992). If we have to hear about superhero movies every minute of every day now, it goes down so »

It’s been a big weekend of exciting trailers and news coming directly from Sdcc and especially on the comic book to movie front. The first bit of news Marvel took the opportunity on its panel to announce that Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining the McU in the Ant-Man Sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Related: Ant-Man and The Wasp News

Pfeiffer will be joining the cast as Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp in the comic book series. It won’t be the first time Pfeiffer has made an outing in a comic book to movie project. Back in 1992, Pfeiffer starred as Seline Kyle aka Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.

Newswire: Michelle Pfeiffer joins the McU as Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Janet Van Dyne

22 July 2017 8:25 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The company still hasn’t released that damn Infinity War trailer, but there was plenty to get excited about in Marvel Studios’ presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con earlier tonight. Among the news about Captain Marvel battling the Skrulls, new Black Panther footage, and that Thor: Ragnarok trailer, there was a lower profile, but equally interesting, announcement: That Michelle Pfeiffer has joined the cast of Ant-Man And The Wasp as Janet Van Dyne. In the comics, Janet Van Dyne was the wife of Hank Pym and mother of Hope Van Dyne, who served as the original Wasp until she was lost in the Quantum Realm. She’s been assumed dead ever since.

This will be a return to comic-book movies for Pfeiffer, who famously portrayed Catwoman in 1992’s Batman Returns. It’ll be her Marvel debut, though. Speaking of, Pfeiffer’s casting was announced at the end of a »

Michelle Pfeiffer Joins ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ as Janet Van Dyne

22 July 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michelle Pfeiffer will star alongside Paul Rudd in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” Marvel revealed during its San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

The Oscar-nominee will play Janet Van Dyne, mother of Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne and wife of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. It’s not Pfeiffer’s first brush with comic book fandom, though it is her first time in a Marvel movie. She previously starred in 1992’s “Batman Returns,” injecting some sizzle into the part of Catwoman.

Michael Keaton confirms Tim Burton reunion on Dumbo

2 July 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »
