Will we ever see a black Iron Man, Asian Hulk or female Thor on the big screen?

8 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Expect more diverse superheroes not only in Marvel’s comic but also in cinemas. It’s about time

The comic book writer Mark Millar tells a nice story about his part in transforming spymaster and all-around badass Nick Fury from a white cigar-chomping second world war veteran to the African-American version portrayed by Samuel L Jackson in the movies. While working on the 2002 miniseries The Ultimates, Millar and artist Bryan Hitch co-opted Jackson’s appearance without asking for permission, only to discover later that the Pulp Fiction star took the swiping of his image rights as a giant compliment.

“Sam is famously the coolest man alive, and artist Bryan Hitch and I liberally used him without asking any kind of permission,” Millar said in an interview last year. “This was 2001 when we were putting it together. The idea that it might become a movie seemed preposterous, as Marvel was just »

Movie posters recreated as Zx Spectrum loading screens

7 July 2016 10:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Hayward Simon Brew Jul 8, 2016

The poster for Pulp Fiction, as a Zx Spectrum loading screen? We've got 22 movie posters right here...

Because it’s Friday, we figure we’re allowed to do this. That said, any piece for the site that could overlap the beloved Zx Spectrum with movies is always something we’re likely to be fair game for. But we'll stick with the Friday excuse for now.

Many of us on the site were children of the Zx Spectrum (metaphorically speaking, lest you feel we’re low rent versions of what happens – spoiler – at the end of Superman III). And one of the charms of the Spectrum home computer was the loading screen that it took 30 seconds or so to draw, while you were waiting for Daley Thompson’s Decathlon to load.

This being the era of the modern internet, it turns out that you can now »

Boy & the World (Alê Abreu)

Crayon-like scribblings and simple geometric patterns meticulously complicate themselves like a fractal over the course of this child’s-eye odyssey through the global struggle between humankind and the forces that oppress it. Kaleidoscopic visuals use repetition to explore the communal nature of both work and celebration. This film continually pulls back to show the larger picture of society, its visuals becoming more complex in kind, before it reduces to a more intimate view »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Review: After another wild fight scene, 'Preacher' keeps dragging its heels

3 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Preacher coming up just as soon as I have a beer at 10 in the morning... "Sundowner" opens with what appears to be significant progress in what's been a pretty sluggish series-opening arc. The visiting angels, DeBlanc and Fiore, are forced to tell Jesse all about the entity inside him: Genesis, the offspring of an unholy union between an angel and a demon, which could be "the most powerful being ever known." That's followed by the appearance of one of the Seraphim — who plays like a cross between a soccer mom, the T-1000, and the Waif from Game of Thrones — who doesn't know Genesis has escaped and is just hunting two fugitive angels who have no permission to be on earth. This in turn leads to Preacher's most impressive — or just plain fun — action sequence yet, as Jesse, Cassidy, DeBlanc, and Fiore have to battle the Seraphim in a motel room, »

‘Marauders’ Review: Bruce Willis Is Too Old For This Sh*t

30 June 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bruce Willis has been “too old for this shit” since he starred in “Die Hard” when he was 33. Steely-eyed apathy has always been his brand — he’s not giving a great performance unless it feels like he and his titanic hangover would rather be literally anywhere else on Earth. He’s not Bruce Willis because he looked like a badass when he was killing his rapist with a samurai sword in “Pulp Fiction,” he’s Bruce Willis because he pulled it off while managing to spend all of his other scenes in that movie looking like he was vaguely mad at us for encouraging his career.

Weary disinterest was his way of letting audiences know that he cared. Unfortunately for Willis, that dynamic has resulted in a dire consequence: Viewers are so attuned to his careful and considered strain of weariness that it’s blindingly obvious when he actually phones something in, »

Cemetery of Splendor (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)

If it is by now redundant to say that Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul (who understands pronunciation troubles and insists people call him “Joe”) is truly in a class of his own, we might blame both the general excellence of his output — a large oeuvre consisting of features, shorts, and installations — and the difficulty that’s often associated with describing them in either literal or opinion-based terms.

10 Best TV Shows of 2016 So Far

What an outrageously abundant year it's been for great TV — and we're only halfway through. 2016 has been a small-screen gold rush so far, from low-key comedies to mega-glitz miniseries, the Battle of the Bastards to the City of the Broads, hilarious fake news to horrifying true history — with dragons and spies and crooks and drunks. When two of the year's best shows are totally different takes on the same 1994 murder trial, you know all bets are off.

Uma Thurman broke multiple bones this week after falling from a horse. "Uma was in an equestrian accident," Thurman's rep explained to The New York Post's Page Six. "She was training on a young thoroughbred who got spooked. She was thrown and broke a few bones."

Thurman is currently spending the summer in Europe. Last month, she was thrown in a different way, when »

With its focus on the effects of exploration by white men on foreign lands, Ciro Guerra’s Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent will inevitably be compared to Werner Herzog’s stories of savage nature, and while Guerra is investigating some of Herzog’s most well trodden themes, the chaos of man exists in the background, while the unspoiled sit front and center here.

‘Finding Dory’: 5 Reasons the Pixar Sequel Smashed Records

19 June 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory” shattered box office records this weekend, setting a new high-water mark for an animated film debut with its $136.2 million opening.

The sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo” succeeded where many followups this summer have failed, nearly doubling the original film’s $70.2 million launch. Its impressive results come amidst fears that the movie business is suffering from “sequelitis,” as one by one spinoffs and fresh installments such as “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” sputter at the box office.

Here are five reasons that Disney and Pixar were able to make a big splash with “Finding Dory.”

1.) Pixar is the Movie Business’ Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval

Over the course of 17 films, Pixar has established a reputation for excellence that is nearly unparalleled. Perhaps only Miramax during its ’90s heyday rivals the Pixar association with quality films, and its run of “Pulp Fiction,” “The English Patient” and “The Crying Game »
