The destruction in Man of Steel will play a major part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 December 2014 3:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.

Warning – potential spoilers…

So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

First official look at Ben Affleck’s Batman v Superman Batsuit in colour

13 December 2014 3:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…

So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Jeremy Irons talks Alfred role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

9 December 2014 11:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”

So although it is a small role it sounds like it »

Possible Spoiler – Major character already dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

8 December 2014 3:03 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filming has wrapped, but we’re still a little way off from an official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (unless it does come out this year, attached to The Hobbit: The Five Armies), but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill churning.

So what do have today? Robin? Doomsday? KGBeast?? Nope. According to Bad Ass Digest, there will be a major Batman character that will already be dead by the time the movie starts.

Still with us? Spoilers ahead…

So, the site is claiming that Detective Jim Gordon will already be dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with script calling for a shot of his memorial plate. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumour that the Batman character will already be dead, with the same site reporting that Robin would have bitten the dust as well.

What do we make of this new rumour? »

Doomsday, Joker and KGBeast “confirmed” for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 December 2014 2:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s blockbuster announcement of the casting for Suicide Squad, we now have some possible news on plot details for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Badass Digest – who are usually spot on with “scoops” – Doomsday will indeed be in the main villain of the piece. Not only that, but Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will have a henchman who is called Anatoli Knyazev in the script. Hardcore DC fans will take pride in knowing that this is in fact DC villain KGBeast, who has battled with Batman in the past. It is unlikely that we’ll see KGBeast in action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are always other films…

The website also claims that while Jared Leto’s Joker is unlikely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he will be mentioned as Superman is very much aware of his existence. »

Ava DuVernay Could Make Oscar History With a Best Director Nom

1 December 2014 6:50 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Last year’s Oscar ceremony made history when director Steve McQueen became the first black filmmaker to win for best picture with 12 Years a Slave and Alfonso Cuaron became the first Latin American to win for best director with Gravity. This year’s ceremony could make history as well: Ava DuVernay could become the first black female to be nominated for best director for Selma, and if Angelina Jolie lands a nomination for Unbroken, it will be the first time two women are nominated in the same year.

In 2012, DuVernay became the first black woman to win for best director at the Sundance Film Festival with Middle of Nowhere.

Lee & Low Books found that 99 percent of best director winners are male and 99 percent of best actress winners are white (93 percent of best actor winners are also white).

Japanese Indie Distributor France Eigasha Goes Bankrupt

20 November 2014 6:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tokyo – France Eigasha, a pioneering Japanese indie distributor that started business in 1968, has filed for bankruptcy.

The company was best known for its Bow Series of films by leading foreign auteurs, including Theo Angelopoulos, Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Hou Hsiao Hsien and Jane Campion. Among its hits were “Wings of Desire” (1987), “The Puppet Master” (1993) and “The Piano” (1993).

The company’s revenues, which once reached $7 million annually, have since fallen below the $1 million mark as Japanese filmgoers turn away from foreign films in general and art house films in particular.  

According to the bankruptcy filing in Tokyo District Court the company owes $321,600 to thirteen creditors.

Among other small-to-mid-level Japanese distributors that have gone bust in recent years are Prenom-h, Movie-Eye, Tornado, Wise Policy and Cine Qua Non.

Film Review: ‘Paddington’

19 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“No bears were harmed in the making of this film,” boast the closing credits of “Paddington” — and happily, that promise extends to Michael Bond’s ursine literary creation. 56 years after first appearing in print, the accident-prone Peruvian furball is brought to high-tech but thoroughly endearing life in this bright, breezy and oh-so-British family romp from writer-director Paul King and super-producer David Heyman. Affectionately honoring the everyday quirks of Bond’s stories, while subtly updating their middle-class London milieu, King’s film may divide loyal Paddingtophiles with its high-stakes caper plot, but their enraptured kids won’t care a whit. If Paddington’s signature line — “I think I’m in trouble again” — is absent from his feature-length debut, that’s because even the fretful bear should feel bullish about its prospects.

With “Paddington” out in Blighty on Nov. 28, roaring domestic holiday biz is a given, though whether TWC-Dimension can sell U. »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shooting scenes in IMAX

13 November 2014 11:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has moved from Detroit to Chicago to do a final month’s filming before post production. Last night the set of the film was getting ready to shoot the Wayne’s murder scene, which is an iconic moment from the Batman story. It has now been revealed that this scene was shot in IMAX.

Twitter user Mike Eisenberg, who is a Chicago local and runs a production company, was near the set last night and tweeted about it. He first said “Lots of people waiting in cold to watch scene film, but it looked like the IMAX cameras were not handling the cold well. Could be a while.”

He then confirmed that they were using IMAX cameras to shoot the iconic scene: “I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman v Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras. »

If you’re familiar with DC continuity, then you will of course be aware that The Mark of Zorro is the film which young Bruce Wayne attends with his parents Thomas and Martha the night of their murder.

Christopher Nolan comments on Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman

12 November 2014 1:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While doing the rounds for his latest blockbuster Interstellar [read our review here], director Christopher Nolan shared his thoughts on Ben Affleck’s casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Nolan told The Daily Beast, “I’m only involved in that project in an advisory capacity as an executive producer, so I’m not involved in the day-to-day. When they told me that Ben was interested in doing it, I thought, ‘How thrilling!’”

Nolan went on to comment, “This is the guy who just won Best Picture as a director and as an actor, and I thought it would be a great thing that he’d be willing to do this. I think the guy is incredibly talented and I’m very excited to see what Zack and Ben do together.”

The initial backlash on Affleck’s casting has appeared to have died down, possibly helped by his recent strong turn in Gone Girl. »

Rumoured details about Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight from Batman v Superman

29 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Affleck’s personal trainer Rehan Jalali has allegedly revealed some details about Affleck’s incarnation of the Dark Knight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. As always the sources claiming that Jalali leaked this are vague and this may just be pure speculation. Nevertheless, the report claims the following:

There are two Batsuits (we’ve seen them both before — he has a traditional Batsuit, and an armored Batsuit like in “The Dark Knight Returns”). The armored suit has Kryptonite all over it, and it can shoot missiles. There are two Batmobiles. Affleck has a shirtless scene as Bruce Wayne to show off his new physique. The shirtless scene is beautifully shot and shows Affleck overlooking a destroyed city (probably Metropolis?).

Most of this information we had already gathered from seeing the leaked trailer, stills released by the studio, and other rumours. Kryptonite has yet to be introduced into the series, »
