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

13 September 2014 3:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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”. Check it out…

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?

We’ll find out when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Zack Snyder directs a cast that includes returning Man of Steel »

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray

2 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: How was your Telluride, Scott? Mine was terrific — though I should note that I don’t really have a frame of reference, being a first-timer at this annual mountainside mecca for movie lovers. Still, I’m happy to report that just about everything I’ve heard is true: the unbeatable backdrop, the near-unbeatable films, above all that wondrous sense that the usual barriers separating filmmakers, journalists and audiences have magically melted away for one long weekend, uniting us all in one collective cinephile bliss-out. This is a festival where you’re as likely to pass Alexander Payne, Mike Leigh or the Dardenne brothers in the street as you are to make it into your next screening, and where a Megan Ellison sighting can send a momentary hush through a screening queue. (“You’re a rock star,” someone told her as we waited in line for Jon Stewart’s “Rosewater, »

Toronto: Mongrel Nabs Sales Rights to Aussie Feature ‘The Daughter’

2 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mongrel Intl. has acquired international sales rights to Australian stage director Simon Stone’s feature bow “The Daughter,” and will be repping the title during the Toronto film festival, the company announced today.

Mongrel Media will distribute in Canada, while Roadshow, which has backed “Daughter” since development, will release in Australia and New Zealand.

The pic is produced by Jan Chapman (“The Piano,” “Bright Star”) and Nicole O’Donohue (“Griff the Invisible”), while its ensemble cast includes Geoffrey Rush, Sam Neill and Miranda Otto.

“Daughter” is inspired by Stone’s award-winning contemporary adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s “The Wild Duck,” which toured Europe to wide acclaim. Lensing starts Sept. 12 in Sydney.

“We’re indebted to Jan and Nicole for entrusting us with what will be an extraordinary film,” said Mongrel Media president Hussain Amarshi. “It fits perfectly with Mongrel’s plan to bring prestigious entertainment to intelligent audiences in Canada and now throughout the world. »

Jesse Eisenberg hides his Lex Luthor hairstyle in new Batman v Superman set photos

2 September 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago we got our first look at Jesse Eisenberg on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now Henry Cavill News has got its hands on a couple more images of the actor, although he’s making sure we can’t see what kind of hairstyle Lex Luthor will be sporting in the upcoming DC ensemble…

So, judging from the second image, he’s not gone bald (yet), and presumably this isn’t the same hairstyle that Eisenberg has had in 99% of his movies. Could Zack Snyder be going for a variation on Luthor’s original red locks?

Jesse Eisenberg spotted in new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set photos

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

Some new photos courtesy of Henry Cavill News from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have made their way online, and show that Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the highly-anticipated film, has made his way to the set…

There’s unfortunately not much to see, though Eisenberg (top left) can clearly be seen hiding his head under a towel. I doubt that that’s simply because it’s a hot summer day. The question now is, is he hiding a full head of hair, or a shiny bald dome? With filming underway, some eagle-eyed fans should find out soon enough. Or, if Warner Bros. is smart, they’ll reveal the first official look at Eisenberg as Lex themselves before it leaks online.

Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent in new Batman v Superman set photo, Jesse Eisenberg talks Lex Luthor role

29 August 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we’ve got a new look at Henry Cavill on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this time in his Clark Kent disguise, complete with glasses…

Meanwhile, co-star Jesse Eisenberg has spoken briefly about his role as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, stating that: “They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I… You know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny… There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own. I got »

Is Scoot McNairy playing Jimmy Olsen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

28 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week the internet exploded with rumors and unfounded speculation that Argo and Halt and Catch Fire actor Scoot McNairy is playing The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The rumors sprung from photos showing McNairy on set with green-screen socks which led to fan speculation that his legs would be altered in post-production to account for super speed.

That rumor is, honestly, a bit ridiculous and likely isn’t true. Now a new rumor has surfaced… that’s so crazy it just might work.

The fansite The Devils Eyes has posted an exclusive report, claiming that McNairy is playing none other than Superman’s longtime pal Jimmy Olsen. They’ve talked with an extra who worked on the film extensively, who said the following:

“Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen, but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of Zod vs Superman. His »

Top of the Lake: an engaging crime drama that pushes females to the fore box set review

28 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jane Campion's six-part series sees Elizabeth Moss deliver a stunning performance as an idealistic detective hunting for the truth in a male-dominated world

The first thing that grabs you about Top of the Lake is the scenery the beautifully framed shots of the area surrounding Moke Lake on New Zealand's South Island. But beyond the vistas lies an intriguing and boundary-pushing story that is every bit as engaging.

Oscar-winning writer and director Jane Campion helms the six-episode mini series, marking her first work on the small screen in nearly 25 years. With films such as The Piano on her CV, Campion is renowned for pushing strong female characters to the fore, as well as boasting an eye-catching visual style and a tendency to veer toward the more esoteric end of story-telling. Top of the Lake is no different and sees Elisabeth Moss deliver a stunning central performance as an idealistic »
