Shark Week Is Coming! Seal Stars in Hilarious — and Terrifying — New Teaser

26 May 2017 12:53 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Seals do not usually fare well during Shark Week.

The semi-aquatic mammals are a major prey for sharks — and dinner time is a major focus of the annual shark-focused television event.

But in a new ad promoting the upcoming Shark Week, recording artist Seal is actually the one being eaten.

Seal begins the commercial on a pier performing his 1995 hit “Kiss from a Rose,” which was featured on the Batman Forever soundtrack.

The singer is giving a full-out performance when a shark jumps out of the water and devours him.

Can we all just admit that Batman & Robin was kind of awesome?

18 May 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen loves Batman & Robin…

Hindsight is a funny thing. It allows us to look back on projects we once loved or hated with a fresh perspective and reevaluate. There was a period in time where I would have loathed 10 Thing I Hate About You because I was an idiot teenager who dismissed it as a ‘chick flick’, but now in my thirties I can view it as one of the better teen movies from that time period. Conversely I once praised Resident Evil: Apocalypse as the best video game movie ever made because it had Nemesis in it, but on reflection I now see it’s the worst of the franchise.

So, 20 years on and in hindsight, can we all just admit that Batman & Robin was kind of awesome?

Released in 1997, Batman & Robin was following on from the successful Batman Forever which brought in a new vision for The Dark Knight. »

Val Kilmer Really Wants to Be Batman Again

28 April 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Batman has come a very long way on screen from its relatively humble Adam West roots. DC Comics' beloved crimefighter is in a bit of an odd spot right now following the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Ben Affleck set to reprise his role in Justice League and probably a solo Batman movie after that, but the future beyond is less certain. So, what should Warner Bros. do if they need to fill those shoes once again? Well, they could always give Val Kilmer a call again, because he would be totally up for it.

The 57-year-old actor recently did a Reddit Ama and at one point, he was asked about the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, which he took on in 1995's Batman Forever. Specifically, he was asked whether or not he would reprise the role one more time, given the chance. His response was very simple and definitive. »

Val Kilmer Would “Love To” Play Batman Again

27 April 2017 3:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite Christian Bale having said he never wants to venture into the superhero genre again, it looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger could have some company when it comes to actors up for returning to the Batman film franchise. But unlike the aforementioned former supervillain, this guy, like Bale, has donned the iconic cape and cowl before, thus ears shall perk.

We are, of course, talking about Val Kilmer, who played the Dark Knight in the 1995 movie, Batman Forever. And, say what you want about him or the the flick itself, but those of us who remember its theatrical run will be able to recall that it was a cultural phenomenon. Well, maybe it didn’t quite achieve the level of “Batmania” that Tim Burton’s Batman did in 1989, but it was a box office and merchandising powerhouse. The commemorative glass from McDonald’s that I still proudly own is a reminder of that. »

Can Guardians of the Galaxy avoid the perils of the threequel?

18 April 2017 6:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Even before the second instalment of the franchise is out, director James Gunn is facing up to difficulties of a third outing for Marvel’s oddball superheroes

James Gunn is hooked on a feeling. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 hasn’t even been released yet and the writer/director has made a declaration of threequel rights. In a Facebook post, Gunn has confirmed he has signed up for a third movie featuring Marvel’s oddball band of sci-fi heroes. “There is a history in Hollywood of haphazard endings to trilogies,” he declared, “and I didn’t want to become a part of that dishonourable tradition of pretending the third one doesn’t exist.”

He’s clearly throwing shade at bellyflops such as Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Batman Forever, where received wisdom tells us acclaimed directors oversaw the first two instalments only to see the third messed up by lesser talents. »

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

11 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to »

Zack Snyder Shares Image From Henry Cavill’s Man Of Steel Screen Test

7 April 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite some lacking foresight and thinking that Superman won’t be appearing in Justice League, let’s face it, we all know he’ll be there. Still, I have to admit that failing to include Big Blue in the latest round of marketing was indeed a big risk that hopefully won’t backfire. Perhaps that served as minor motivation though for Zack Snyder releasing a picture of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel screen test.

Captioned with “I knew when I saw him he was my Superman,” the post from Snyder’s Vero account shows a younger, somewhat thinner Cavill lounging in Christopher Reeve’s suit, which when seen in black and white, you have to admit kind of looks like George Reeves’ suit from the 1950’s TV series, The Adventures of Superman. Or, maybe, the one Kirk Alyn donned in the 1940’s film serials.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He'd "Absolutely" Play Another Batman Villain

5 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Say what you want about Joel Schumacher's late-'90s Batman movies (Batman Forever, Batman & Robin), but the one thing we've always admired about them were their villains. Yes, they were cheesy and corny and all those similar words wrapped into one, colorful lump of Wtf, but they made a point to at least humanize their over-the-top bad guys in an attempt to get audiences to invest equally in both the hero and villain's journey. (That's a lesson Marvel Studios is just beginning to learn now, by the way, as both Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming feature more sympathetic villains.) However, perhaps no Schumacher-era Batman villain is quite as memorable as Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze from Batman & Robin...

Nicole Kidman will play Aquamum Atlanna in ‘Aquaman’

3 April 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about our DC cinematic universe superheroes so far, it’s that they love their mothers. Not wishing to be left out it seems that Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman will also rely on his mother. Stepping into the role of Princess Atlanna (finally a non-Martha) is none other than Nicole Kidman.

It seems that it was director James Wan that drew the Academy Award winning actress to the big-budget production. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly she admitted that she’s been keeping tabs on the fellow Australians career, and jumped at the chance to work with him. Especially as it meant she got to play a bad-ass mermaid warrior royal:

“The reason why I love [Aquaman] is James Wan is an Australian, and I’ve followed his career since he started. He’s a really good friend of mine, and he offered to let me play Queen Atlanna… »

Val Kilmer Jokes About Cate Blanchett Twitter Rant: ‘I Wrote Nice Things… Now I’m a Pervert’

30 March 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If loving Cate Blanchett is wrong, Val Kilmer doesn’t want to be right.

Kilmer, 57, made an appearance at the Irvine Improv in Irvine, California, on Wednesday night to introduce a special film screening of his one-man play, Citizen Twain.

During a Q&A, an audience member asked Kilmer who was his favorite costar to work with. “I can’t say Cate Blanchett,” he joked. “I wrote nice things about Cate Blanchett on Twitter and now I’m a pervert.”

He added, “I don’t know why loving an actor that’s so talented is creepy, but I guess I’m creepy. »

Val Kilmer is making his admiration for Cate Blanchett very clear.

The Top Gun and Batman Forever star spent his weekend flooding his Twitter account with unsolicited posts lauding Blanchett, with whom he appeared with in the 2003 Western The Missing.

Kilmer started off his bizarre rant on Friday by claiming he once flew to the actress’ native Australia to see her, only to be met by her husband Andrew Upton.

“Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate,” the 57-year-old actor wrote, »

Nightwing: who is he, & where will he fit in the Dceu?

Rob Leane Mar 28, 2017

Nightwing is getting his own movie as part of the DC extended universe. Here’s our primer...

The DC Extended Universe continues to add more movies to its slate, and one of the most intriguing prospects to join the big pile of in-development movies is Nightwing. An announcement was made recently that an impressive team was working on the project, which sent the internet into pure fan mode, with dream casting lists popping up all over the shop.

Since then, rumours have surfaced that Warner Bros and DC want to get something in front of cameras by the end of this year. Perhaps Nightwing will be put on this fast track, allowing Blüdhaven’s premier protector to swoop onto our screens speedily.

If the name Nightwing flew straight over your head, though, you’ve come to the right place. This is our primer on the character, to »

Hans Zimmer Breaks Down The Difference Between His Two Bats

17 March 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Love him or hate him, Hans Zimmer has quite the presence in the world of cinema. If you're here, reading this, then you've definitely heard his music, whether it be that from Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and even The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's just a sampling of his work! Whew!

Though he's not the only composer to score the music for two different Batman actors -- Elliot Goldenthal wrote the music for Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer and Batman & Robin with George Clooney -- he is the only one to write two completely different scores for separate Batman Universes. Based on the quality of Batman Forever and its sequel, I'm assuming Goldenthal didn't really give character motivation much thought when writing his Batman theme, but Zimmer took it very seriously. Now that he's done with superhero themes forever (or for now. »
