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. »

12 November 2014 1:46 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that Warner Bros. is wasting little time in revisiting Batman’s origin in the rebooted DC Cinematic Universe, with a new set photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice popping up online which reveals that director Zack Snyder will be revisiting the night of the Wayne family murder in Chicago tonight…

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. According to Batman-News, the scene will be shooting tonight from 7pm, so expect to see more set photos soon…

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, »

28 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been filming in Detroit for the past few months and is about to wrap there before heading to Chicago for the final part of the shoot. In an interview with CBS Detroit Radio, director Zack Synder has revealed how happy he was to have shot scenes in the city…

“I just wanted to say thanks to you guys for being strong supporters of the movie and coming down and saying hey, and just, I’ve had a great time in Michigan, I just wanted to say thanks to you guys and just to Detroit itself. I know this is the venue for talking to all of Detroit. We head to Chicago after this, then a couple more locations, but we’re getting close [to wrapping completely]“‘

He also stated that there is a chance that the future Justice League movies will return to Detroit: “I feel »

New Batman v Superman set photos show Wayne family crypt

26 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Some new images from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have hit the web courtesy of Batman-News, and they show an iconic DC Comics location: the Wayne family crypt. Is this a sign that we’ll be getting flashbacks to the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne? Just about every Batman adaptation has its interpretation of that scene, after all. Or, does the grown-up Bruce pay a visit to his parents at some point during the film? Only time will tell…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer arriving before the end of the year?

24 October 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that the film itself is still some fifteen months away from release, Dark Knight fan site Batman-on-Film is reporting that the first ‘Batman heavy’ teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ready to go, and that we’ll be seeing it before the curtain falls on 2014…

According to the site: “The first teaser trailer for the film is complete and ready to go. The overt hint I got from these folks is that the teaser will be revealed this Fall along with a November or December film release (and online, of course). I have no idea to which specific film it may be “attached,” but New Line’s (which is Warner Bros.’ sister company) The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is being released on December 17, 2014. By the way Batman fans, I’ve heard that this teaser is ‘Batman heavy.'”

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

22 October 2014 | 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

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…
