StreamFix: 'Catching Fire,' 'Galaxy Quest,' and 8 More Essential Streams on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix is your one-stop shop for the web's best streams. Here's the best of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this week.    Netflix "Galaxy Quest" It's strange that we choose to watch other movies when we can just watch "Galaxy Quest" again and again. The awesome movie puts washed-up TV actors from a cult sci-fi hit (played by Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, and Alan Rickman) into a real-life space adventure. Perfect chemistry for such an offbeat cast. I'd say, "Sigourney Weaver has never been more bad-ass!" but she achieves such heights in pretty much every movie, doesn't she? "Alfie" I'm not much for remakes of Michael Caine's best work (Remember the abysmal "Sleuth" revamp?), but Jude Law actually succeeds here by recreating the debonair man at the heart of the 1966 classic. Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, and Jane Krakowski all pay his conquests here. Oh, Alfie. What's it all about? »

Ray Fisher didn’t know about Cyborg solo movie until the official announcement from Warner Bros.

21 October 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ray Fisher – who is set to portray Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in the DC movie universe – was just as surprised as fans when it was announced there would be a Cyborg standalone film in 2020. The actor found out at the same time the fans when Warner Bros. and DC announced their film line up last week.

Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character, when I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”

Newcomer Fisher will first be seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will likely appear in both Justice League movies before taking the lead of his own movie in 2020.

So look out for Fisher »

More rumours that Jena Malone is playing Robin in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 October 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks back, rumour resurfaced claiming that Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder for the role of Carrie Kelley (a.k.a. The Dark Knight Returns’ Robin) in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stemming from the fact that the actress had died her hair red – much like the character in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

Well, Variety is now quoting an alleged extra from the top-secret film, who has apparently told local news station Wilx-10 that “the character of Robin is now female”. This certainly adds some credence to the original report, unless the “extra” is just making it up to get themselves on the local news, of course…

Would you like to see Carrie Kelley in Batman v Superman, and if so, is Jena Malone a good choice for the part?

Batman v Superman producer talks Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and building to Justice League

14 October 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having served as producer on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, Charles Roven is now involved with the latest incarnation of the Caped Crusader, as Zack Snyder’s brings together Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel for the eagerly-anticipated 2016 sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During a Hollywood Masters interview for Lmu Film School, Roven has now spoken about the casting of Ben Affleck, as well as stating how this interpretation of Bruce Wayne / Batman differs from previous versions, and teasing the expansion of the DC movie universe leading up to the Justice League movie.

“We knew that we wanted a very mature Batman, because we wanted to juxtapose him against this young Superman, so we wanted a guy who was tougher, rugged, had signs of life, had lived a hard life,” states Roven. “We wanted the guy to have chops, for sure. »

Ben Affleck talks Daredevil and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 October 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Affleck has been doing the promotional rounds for his latest film Gone Girl, and of course much of the conversation has shifted to his upcoming role as The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Affleck has been reluctant to give anything away, but he did take a moment to express his regrets over Daredevil during an interview with NPR, as well as stating how he feels confident about the 2016 DC ensemble…

“Indeed I have regrets about Daredevil. I have regrets about all the movies that I don’t think were executed properly… Look, if I thought we were remaking Daredevil, I’d be out there picketing myself … and that goes for other movies as well that I haven’t been happy with. You know, I’m hard on myself and I have exacting standards and I want to do excellent work and I don’t always succeed, »

Low quality look at Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

30 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July during the San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance in Hall H a sneak peek at 2016’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman by showcasing footage from the film, along with promotional images of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. We’ve seen high-resolution, official versions of the character images for Superman and Wonder Woman, but so far Batman has been kept under wraps. Well, thanks to BatmanvSuperman2016 on Instagram (via Cbm), we now have a low-quality look at The Dark Knight in what appears to be a blue and grey Batsuit. Take a look…

To be totally honest, apart from the colouring it’s not much better than the snap that made its way online during Sdcc, so let’s hope we get an official release soon…

Anti-Superman protesters spotted on the set of Batman v Superman

30 September 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August a report from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teased the possibility of anti-Superman protests in the film, and it looks like an eagle-eyed fan has just confirmed it. Twitter user Tim Reinmann spotted protestors on the set of Batman V Superman, holding up signs like “Thanks For The ‘Help’,” “SuperDEATH,” and “When Invasion Becomes Reality Revolt Becomes Duty!”

It looks like Superman’s big battle with Zod at the end of Man of Steel will bring more consequences than just property damage, and the anti-Superman sensibilities sure will help Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) in his fight against his soon-to-be arch-nemesis.

Check out the photos below, and let us know your thoughts about the film containing anti-Superman protests in the comments…

Ben Affleck is “very excited” about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

29 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Ben Affleck currently on the promotional rounds for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, we can expect the actor to be inundated with questions about his upcoming role as The Dark Knight in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the Boston Globe has already managed to grab a few of his thoughts about the big DC ensemble…

“I can tell you that I’m very excited and it’s very exciting. I can tell you that in my entire career, I haven’t had so many people come up to me and say how much they’re looking forward to the movie. Naturally, that’s a lot of pressure, but I love the script, I love the director, I love the studio. I’m very much looking forward to it, but it’s two years away so it probably doesn’t bear talking about anymore.”

So, based on those comments, »

First look at Wayne Manor from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

27 September 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As filming continues on Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like we may have had our first look at Wayne Manor as it will appear in the DC Cinematic Universe… and if it is, then it’s very different to previous Wayne Manors we’ve seen on screen. Batman-News has posted a selection of images showing the crew setting up at the abandoned Ransom Gillis House in Detroit, while a set video has arrived online showing Gotham City Police arriving at the mansion. Check them out…

Man of Steel star Harry Lennix says fans of The Dark Knight Returns will be “well pleased” with Batman v Superman

23 September 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July 2013, Man of Steel star Harry Lennix took to the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con International where he quoted lines from Frank Miller’s seminal comic book Batman: The Dark Knight Returns as part of the official announcement that Zack Snyder would be bringing the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight together for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, during an interview with Moviefone, Lennix has offered up a few words on the DC Comics ensemble, stating that fans of The Dark Knight Returns will be “well pleased” by the “historic event”.

“Anybody who’s a fan of the ’86 graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns, I think will be well pleased by [Batman v Superman],” says Lennix, who will reprise the role of General Swanwick in the team-up. “This is a historic event. Clearly, Zack Snyder is on the cutting edge of directing movies of this scope and scale. »

Ben Affleck talks about playing the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

15 September 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”

In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

Zack Snyder posts another Batman v Superman / Star Wars mash-up

Earlier in the week Zack Snyder gave us our first official look at the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while yesterday brought a crazy – and untrue – rumour suggesting that someone had stolen the Dark Knight’s ride from the Detroit set of the DC ensemble. Well, Snyder has now had some fun with those rumours, posting another Batman v Superman / Star Wars mash-up image showing Gotham Police arresting a Stormtrooper for the theft with the caption “Case Closed”.

Flickering Myth Reaction – The Batmobile in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

12 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team discuss the new Batmobile…

After a few photos of the Batmobile for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online, a rather perturbed Zack Snyder took to Twitter and revealed the first official photo of the Batmobile in all of its glory. It seems to have split opinion among the Internet, but what did our writers make of it?

Be sure to also check our evolution of the Batmobile.

Tom Jolliffe: It’s design gone mad. There’s too much going on and ultimately it looks like it would be ten times worse to drive than the Nolan Batmobile. Bats would be better off in a Nissan Micra with a bit of bullet proof glass fitted.

Tom Roach: I really like the new look. I’m very happy that the new version of the Batmobile has very little resemblence to the tumbler in the Dark Knight Trilogy. »

Sam Neill, Miranda Otto Join Australian Drama ‘The Daughter’

11 September 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park,” “The Piano”) and Miranda Otto (“The Homesman”) join Geoffrey Rush in “The Daughter,” which starts shooting today in Sydney, Australia.

Directed by noted theatre director Simon Stone, the film is a “contemporary portrait of family love, dysfunction, deception and denial, inspired by Stone’s award-winning re-imagining of Henrik Ibsen’s ‘The Wild Duck’.” The story follows a man who returns home to discover a long-buried family secret, and whose attempts to put things right threaten the lives of those he left years before.

It is produced by Fate Films, with producers Jan Chapman and Nicole O’Donohue. Financing comes from Screen Australia and Screen Nsw.

Roadshow Films, which also backed the project from its development stages, will distribute in Australia and New Zealand. Mongrel Film handles international sales.

Other cast includes Paul Schneider (“Lars and the Real Girl”), Anna Torv (“Deadline Gallipoli”), and rising star Odessa Young. »

The evolution of the Batmobile

11 September 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the announcement of a new Batmobile via some leaked photos and then Zack Synder’s Twitter account, we at Flickering Myth decided to look at the various incarnations of the The Dark Knight’s most iconic of accessories….

Batman #27

The Batmobile first debuted in DC Comics’ Batman #27, a red convertible with nothing overly special in its functionality. But in an interesting piece of trivia, the term “Batmobile” was not used until Detective Comics #48 in 1941.

Batman ’66

Moving into the live action realm on our list is one of the most well-loved looks for people of “a certain age” of the Batmobile, courtesy of the 1966 Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the dynamic duo. With great gadgets like an anti-theft switch, Bat Beam, Mobile Batcomputer and the Emergency Bat-turn lever, this version of the Batmobile is well respected and has been used by many as their transport on their wedding days. »

Zack Snyder releases the best look at the Batman v Superman Batmobile yet

10 September 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zack Snyder must not have been very happy about those leaked set photos showing off the new Batmobile that Ben Affleck uses in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, because he’s taken it upon himself to give us the best image of the new iteration of the iconic vehicle yet. He took to Twitter late Wednesday night and posted the image below, saying, “Here’s a real picture of the Batmobile.” Take a look…

As you can see, this may very well be the best version of the Batmobile we’ve seen on screen yet. It looks incredibly badass, and could easily give Christopher Nolan’s Tumbler a run for its money. Now we just have one question… Can it withstand a blow from Superman?

It looks like Zack Snyder and company are gearing up to shoot a major action sequence for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a low quality image showing the Batmobile on the Detroit set of the DC superhero ensemble popping up online via Instagram…

And here are a few more images…

According to Batman-News, notices have been sent out to locals stating that outdoor pyrotechnics will be utilised tomorrow night, and with night shoots planned between now and Friday – and the Batmobile on set – it would appear that there’s a good chance we’ll get to see Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight suited up and in action…
