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 »

StreamFix: 6 Oscar Frontrunners in Great Roles on Netflix

26 January 2015 5:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Newsflash: We still have awhile before the Oscars. It's like a month away. But we can prepare anyway by revisiting the greatest hits of our leading nominees in the acting categories. Put on your angriest Annette Bening face and join us for this trip into prestige pictures currently streaming on Netflix. "The Kids are All Right" (Julianne Moore) Julianne Moore didn't pick up a nomination, but costars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo did in this family drama (with funny moments) about a lesbian couple attempting to embrace the new-found presence of their kids' sperm donor. "The Kids are All Right" feels like a lost James L. Brooks gem set in 2010, and every performance has endearing and (intentionally) maddening moments. Julianne might play the most conflicted character at all, and she wears that indecision and personal guilt well.  "My Week With Marilyn" (Eddie Redmayne) Is this a great movie? No. In fact, »

"Gotham" Star Robin Lord Taylor on Danny DeVito's Penguin Praise: It Feels Incredible, Let's Get a Drink!

23 January 2015 11:45 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Gotham" star Robin Lord Taylor is basking in the glow of some major praise from his Penguin predecessor, Danny DeVito. The "Batman Returns" star recently revealed he's seen the new Fox series and is a fan of Taylor's work so far. "I've watched the show. I think he's a very good young Penguin," he told Access Hollywood. "He's a terrific actor."Well, Robin heard the good word -- and he's thrilled!"I still can't get over it. I've said it before, but I've watched 'Batman Returns' a billion times, it's one of those films where I can continually watch it over and over again because of his performance," Robin tells toofab. "it doesn't get any better than that. I just feels incredible."And while he has yet to meet the "Always Sunny In Philadelphia" star in person, he's very close to someone who could make it happen."Carol Kane, »

Mike Gold: Batman Resurrected

21 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | | 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 »

Netflix Will Drop These Movies And TV Shows In February

20 January 2015 5:22 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every single month, Netflix adds and subtracts movies and television shows from its roster. Like a mad chemist, it never stops tinkering, both pleasing and infuriating users as more and more is added and subtracted. Think of it like one giant game of Dr. Mario, except instead of pills, dealing with content like The Rocketeer and Apocalypse Now. Today, Netflix announced the movies and TV shows that will be taking their last bow, at least for awhile, and sadly, there are some gems in there. gone ahead and embedded the entire list of content, courtesy of THR, that will disappear sometime in February. So, spend your evenings getting busy. Leaving On February 1st Airheads (1994) Apocalypse Now (1979) Apocalypse Now Redux (2001) A View to Kill (1985) Blackadder: Seasons One-Four (1983-1989) Babes in Toyland (1961) Batman & Robin (1997) Batman Forever (1995) Batman Returns (1992) Cocoon: The Return (1998) Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) Down Priscope (1996) Fawlty Towers »

The New Year Brings Gains And Losses To Your Netflix Watch Instantly Queue

20 January 2015 10:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has just released their lists of what films and TV shows we will see added in February…and what films and TV shows will vanish.

First, the good news: quite a few classic and popular TV shows are making the grade on the streaming service, including the first five seasons of Mash,  Hawaii 5-0, and the new season of House of Cards. New additions to the film list include RoboCop, The Brothers Bloom, and Gimme Shelter. While there’s not a lot of quality stuff on offer, there are at least a few new films and TV shows that we can enjoy on the Netflix streaming service.

Now for the bad news: quite a number of favorites are going to vanish from Netflix come February 1. Among these are several James Bond films, Zodiac, Jane Eyre, and Dredd. The TV shows fare even worse, with tons of BBC shows expiring, »

What Is Expiring From Netflix on February 1?

20 January 2015 6:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Having come to the conclusion that it's genuinely useful to tell its users what movies will soon be expiring from its service, Netflix is now releasing a list of the films that will disappear from its coffers (some presumably only for a short time) at the end of every month. Here is a list of what will expire on February 1. Several James Bond films will disappear from Netflix — since they have many times before, expect to see them return at some point soon. We will update the list closer to the end of the month with additional titles.February 1Blackadder (Seasons 1–­4) A View to a Kill Airheads Apocalypse Now Apocalypse Now Redux Babes in Toyland Batman & Robin Batman Forever Batman Returns Cocoon: The Return Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Down Periscope Fawlty Towers (Seasons 1­–2) For Your Eyes Only From Russia With Love Goldfinger Hotel Babylon (Seasons 1–4) Jane Eyre Live »

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 »

Danny DeVito gives his thoughts on The Penguin in Gotham

19 January 2015 7:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While many have not been overly keen on the TV show Gotham, there has been overwhelming praise for the work of Robin Lord Taylor’s portrayal of a young Penguin.

Back in 1992, Danny DeVito played the iconic role in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, and he was asked what he thought about Taylor’s Penguin.

“I’ve watched the show. I think he’s a very good young Penguin,” DeVito told Access Hollywood. “He’s a terrific actor.”

It was announced last month that Mark Hamill would be returning to The Flash to reprise his role of The Trickster, but would DeVito be interested in appearing in Gotham in some capacity? “I don’t know about that,” DeVito said. “Again, it’s all about the schedules and the parts and like how the thing is written and what it would be and there are so many particulars.”

Batman Returns' Danny DeVito Comments On Gotham's Penguin

18 January 2015 2:30 PM, PST | | 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

18 January 2015 11:46 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

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 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.

Your Cheat Sheet to All of the Oscar-Nominated Movies

15 January 2015 2:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Oscar nominations have been announced and these are officially the best movies of the year. Apparently. We guess. The Academy nominated them for Best Picture, so they must be.

In case you don’t have time to watch all eight movies between now and Oscar night, Feb. 22, we’ve drafted up this cheat sheet, so you’ll at least be able to pretend that you’ve seen them:

American Sniper

Warner Bros.

Who's In It: Phil from The Hangover, Bradley Cooper; that girl from that movie, I think she dated Jude Law? Sienna Miller; plus, it was directed by Clint Eastwood (if you don’t know who he is, ask your dad).

What's It About: The most lethal American sniper in U.S. military history, based on the book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History (watch the trailer here).

7 Major Problems With Batman Returns

14 January 2015 1:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Last week presented an article on the ten worst performances in the seven Batman feature films we’ve been graced with since 1989. The discussions the article led to were pretty interesting, and one of the noticeable things that came up is that people clearly have a soft spot for the second of Tim Burton’s takes on the Batman Character – the 1992 blockbuster Batman Returns.

Perhaps it’s simply a case of the following films being so awful that Returns looks great by comparison, or perhaps it’s waxing nostalgic for other people. But it is rather strange because quite simply, this movie really isn’t very good. At all.

Some people are quick to argue that critics of the film are too focused on the comic book origins rather than focusing on it as solely a Burton feature. And perhaps that’s fair, but considering Batman »

Angora Sweaters and Scissorhands: Ranking the Films of Tim Burton

13 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tim Burton is perhaps one of the most unique and exciting filmmakers working today. With a vision inspired by classic horror and a dry wit, his films are often fiercely entertaining and endlessly clever. Of course, that’s not to say that there aren’t dark spots on his filmography. Like every filmmaker he’s had his missteps but even when the movies don’t quite work Burton manages to create films that are visually stunning and artistic. With the recent release of Big Eyes and a possible sequel to Beetlejuice in the works, examining Burton’s work and influence is more important than ever.

17. Planet of the Apes (2001): Even when a Burton film has issues there are usually some redeeming factors (see Darks Shadows’ amazing style) but, oh man, one really has to look hard to find something good in this disaster of a movie. Sure, the makeup »

Flashback: Michael Keaton Talks About His 'Distinct' & 'Definitive' Work 28 Years Ago

11 January 2015 9:59 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michael Keaton always wanted the characters he played to be different.

Keaton, 63, won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) for his role in Birdman on Sunday, and twenty-eight years ago he told Et how he selects his roles.

"My work is distinct and definitive and specific and hopefully it is so that every single character is different, and they are but -- there's probably an underlying element that's me," Keaton told Et in 1987.

Photos: All of the 2015 Golden Globe Arrivals

In Birdman, Keaton plays a washed-up actor by the name of Riggan Thompson who once played the superhero Birdman in movies, but he must overcome his family troubles in an attempt to reinvent his career on Broadway.

The role, while bold and new for the actor, could easily be seen as an homage to his own portrayal of Bruce Wayne in Batman Returns. There is certainly »

10 Things You Need To Know About Joel Schumacher’s Batman Triumphant

8 January 2015 12:44 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

You know you messed up big time when you have to apologise to audiences for a film you directed. That’s exactly what Joel Schumacher ended up doing for Batman & Robin, however, and it’s something that the majority of viewers probably thought was a long time coming. To this day there are still outraged fanboys to be found, on social networks and comment sections across the web, accusing him of killing the Dark Knight.

Y’know, until Christopher Nolan came back and saved his life (and ours). Batman & Robin did wind up being the least successful of Warner Bros’s initial attempt to bring the Caped Crusader to the big screen, but Batman Forever had managed to almost double the gross of Tim Burton’s darker, more brooding Batman Returns.

When Schumacher came on board he threw out the gothic atmosphere Burton loves and went full camp – even more so with his second film, »

This Insane Theory Explains Why Joel Schumacher's Batman Movies Actually Work

6 January 2015 7:42 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You have to look far and wide to find Batman fans who.ll defend Joel Schumacher.s contributions to the hero.s cinematic legacy. Normally, when Bat-fans speak of pre-Nolan times, it.s "Tim Burton This" and "Tim Burton That," while conversation drops to a whisper if anyone brings up Batman Forever or . gasp! -- Batman & Robin. Except now, a new theory has been floated that helps explain Why Schumacher.s Batman movies are so different than any other Dark Knight story. and it.s worth exploring. The folks over at Crave have analyzed Joel Schumacher.s two Batman films, and drew strong comparisons to the ways that Gotham is portrayed in the Burton films to the Schumacher efforts. Mainly, the city is dark and somber in Batman and Batman Returns, but lit up like a neon Christmas tree in Forever and Robin. Schumacher has said in the past that »
