Stephen Colbert Becomes Immortal in Final Star-Studded 'Colbert Report'

18 December 2014 7:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"If this is your first time tuning into The Colbert Report, I have some terrible news," Stephen Colbert joked during the opening of his final episode. "This is also your last time tuning into The Colbert Report. Until 10 years from now when they reboot it with J.J. Abrams."

News: Late-Night Hosts React To Colbert Replacing Letterman

After building a comedy powerhouse, Stephen Colbert hosted his final episode of his beloved satirical Comedy Central talk show Thursday, and it was just the right mix of humor and emotion. Here are some of the best moments from his historical series finale.

Colbert Explores His Impact on History

During Colbert's last installment of "The Word," he chronicled his impact on history and all that he's accomplished since the show began in 2005, including:

Michelle MacLaren in talks to direct Wonder Woman

12 November 2014 11:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to several outlets, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones alum Michelle MacLaren is in talks to direct the Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot.

Her name appeared on a recent shortlist that included other female directors, including Kathryn BigelowDeep Impact‘s Mimi Leder, and Twilight‘s Catherine Hardwicke. I’m personally a huge fan of MacLaren’s, and will be more than ecstatic if she lands the job.

Despite working mostly in television, MacLaren has proven herself to be a strong director. Plus, we’ve seen other TV helmers make the jump from the small screen to taking the reins of big screen superhero blockbusters, like Community and Arrested Development alumni Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War) and Game of ThronesAlan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Terminator Genisys).

Tell us, would you be happy with a Michelle MacLaren-directed Wonder Woman film? »

Michelle MacLaren In Negotiations to Direct 'Wonder Woman' Standalone Movie

12 November 2014 4:21 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, when the shortlist was first revealed her name wasn't on it, but her's seemed to be the first name on everyone's lips once it was revealed Warner Bros. was hoping to fill the director's chair on their upcoming Wonder Woman movie with a female director. That name being Michelle MacLaren, whose work on "Breaking Bad", "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead" has resulted in some of the most talked about episodes when it comes to fans of those series. Tonight, it seems I was right to write early on that I felt "before all is said and done you know Michelle MacLaren's name will bubble to the surface" and bubble it has as Variety reports MacLaren is in negotiations to direct the film, which will feature Gal Gadot in the title role with plans for a June 23, 2017 release date. Names that were on the shortlist to begin »

"Wonder Woman" May Have Found A Director?

10 November 2014 3:22 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Reports emerged last month that Warner Bros. Pictures was seeking a female director to handle their upcoming stand alone "Wonder Woman" movie starring Gal Gadot.

Filmmaker Lexi Alexander, who has been one of the few women to helm a comic book adaptation ("Punisher: War Zone"), has revealed to Forbes that an offer is out to someone but she won't name names for now:

"If she says yes, everybody will be very happy, including me. Still, I don't see at this point why anyone would say yes. There is huge pressure. If [a female director] does fail, then all of a sudden it's 'all women suck at directing.'"

Alexander says she has not been approached for the film and has discouraged her managers from putting her name in the hat: "I can't say they wouldn't consider me, but they haven't reached out."

At last report the rumored shortlist for the gig included the »

Neil deGrasse Tyson Reviews Interstellar, Science Nerds Rejoice

10 November 2014 11:58 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

America's favorite astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is weighing in on this year's biggest sci-fi film Interstellar, and he's pretty happy with how the science checks out. The Cosmos host has previously shared his thoughts on big budget films like Deep Impact, Terminator, and Gravity. Though he's often critical of movies that fall flat when they trade scientific accuracy for Hollywood glitz and glam, Tyson seems to give a seal of approval to the new Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway hit. Among the highlights, Tyson is pro-feminism and anti-fist fights. For movie buffs who wish more reviews included the word "electrodynamics," this one's for you! Warning: »

'Wonder Woman' Movie Offered to a Female Director

10 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that Warner Bros. is seeking a female director for their upcoming stand alone Wonder Woman movie, which will have Gal Gadot reprising her title role after being introduced in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. During an interview with Forbes, filmmaker Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans, Punisher: War Zone) revealed that Warner Bros. has made an offer to a female filmmaker, although she wouldn't reveal who it is.

"If she says yes, everybody will be very happy, including me. Still, I don't see at this point why anyone would say yes. There is huge pressure. If [a female director] does fail, then all of a sudden it's 'all women suck at directing.'"

Lexi Alexander also added that she has not been approached for Wonder Woman, and that she has discouraged her managers from putting her up for consideration.

‘Second Sight’ bends the mind, and bonds the soul

3 November 2014 3:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Second Sight

Free Radical Design

Codemasters

PS2, Gc, Xbox, PC

If tasked to name a game by Free Radical Design (currently known as Rare Crytek UK Dambuster Studios), it’s likely one in particular will pop up, and rightly so. The TimeSplitters franchise was a much loved and well reviewed series, with TimeSplitters 2 serving as the highlight. Taking much of what the team had learned during their time at Rare working on seminal titles such as Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark, Free Radical created a superb trilogy of shooters that played smoothly, had a wonderful multiplayer and even matured into some fairly decent storytelling by the end.

Of course, the other title that might come to mind would be Haze, a game so bad it near-singlehandedly bankrupted the studio.

In-between those two extremes, however, sits a game that has been largely forgotten. It held neither the fast-paced scrappiness that the TimeSplitters series had, »

Which Female Filmmaker Should Direct ‘Wonder Woman'? (Poll)

24 October 2014 4:27 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Multiple reports surfaced Friday that Warner Bros. was angling for a female filmmaker to direct Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman,” which is slated for 2017. The obvious choice might be Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), as she's the only woman to ever win a directing Oscar, but she's far from the only qualified candidate. See photos: 19 Best and Worst Superheroes to Hit TV: What's Flown? What's Blown?

Rumoured shortlist of directors for Wonder Woman movie

24 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday it was reported that Warner Bros. is looking for a female director to helm its upcoming Wonder Woman movie, and so naturally it hasn’t taken long for the rumour mill to kick into gear, with Forbes posting a rumoured shortlist of candidates for the director’s chair on what will be the Amazon Princess’ solo big screen debut…

According to the site, the studio is considering Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), Julie Taymor (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) and Tricia Brook (The Walking Dead).

Given the timing of this report, and past form from Forbes, I’m personally chalking this one down to pure speculation, but of course if Warner Bros. is looking for a female director for Wonder Woman, then you’d have to imagine most of those names would be high on Warner’s shortlist… »

Bigelow, Hardwicke and More Lead Search for Female 'Wonder Woman' Director

24 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"Hey! If we're going to have a female superhero movie it should be directed by a female!" Hilarious. And I'm not saying that because I don't think a female should be hired to direct Warner Bros. and DC Comics' planned Wonder Woman movie, but because it's not as if they are breaking any gender lines in doing so. Why isn't a female director also being sought to direct The Flash, Aquaman or Shazamc Oh... I see... Either way, it is what it is and I guess women will just have to be satisfied for the bone they're thrown for the time being as The Hollywood Reporter brings word WB is searching for a female director to direct the Gal Gadot-led Wonder Woman feature targeting a June 23, 2017 release following Gadot's appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. While sites have already started putting together their wishlists, Forbes »

"Wonder Woman" Gets A Directing Short List

24 October 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Along with a lack of female superheroes on the big screen, there's also been an obvious lack of female filmmakers tackling the genre. Lexi Alexander was an exception, helming the quickly forgotten "Punisher: War Zone," whilst Patty Jenkins came very close to directing "Thor: The Dark World" before Alan Taylor ultimately took the gig.

Now though, with the announcement of a "Wonder Woman" movie, it looks like Warners is using the opportunity to also push for more diversity behind the camera and is currently considering a shortlist of female helmers for the gig.

Forbes reports the studio has already drawn up a list of possible directors including established filmmakers like Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight"), Mimi Leder ("Deep Impact"), Karyn Kusama ("Aeon Flux") and Julie Taymor ("Across the Universe") along with some TV directors such as Michelle MacLaren ("Game of Thrones") and Tricia Brook ("The Walking Dead").

Rumor: Kathryn Bigelow, Catherine Hardwicke & More On Shortlist To Direct 'Wonder Woman'

24 October 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With Warner Bros. laying out the roadmap for their DC Comics movies through 2020, get ready for years of speculation about cast members and directors, so let's get started with "Wonder Woman." THR reports that the studio is already looking for a woman to direct the Gal Gadot-starring film slated for 2017. Meanwhile, over at Forbes, they've already got a list of the names that are apparently on WB's shortlist. Let's take a look.... According to business site, Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight"), Karyn Kusama ("Girlfight"), Mimi Leder ("Deep Impact"), and Julie Taymor ("Across The Universe") are all names being tossed around. Of course, some are more likely than others, even at first glance. Bigelow seems a long shot, though is easily the most desirable name from a studio standpoint. She's an acclaimed, Oscar-winning filmmaker who can do action and drama, and would bring a serious face »

Shortlist For Wonder Woman Director Includes Kathryn Bigelow And Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke

24 October 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What a difference a month makes. Four weeks ago, Warner Bros. refused to comment on whether a solo Wonder Woman film was in the works. Fast forward to today, though, and we know for sure that the Gal Gadot’s Amazon Warrior will indeed star in her own stand-alone movie. With the actress already in place, all eyes have now turned to the directing chair, and it appears as though WB has drafted up a shortlist of potential candidates.

In accordance with yesterday’s report, it seems Warner Bros. and DC have their mind set on recruiting a female filmmaker for the big-screen adaptation, and according to a list published by Forbes, we now know which directors have topped the studio’s alleged wishlist.

Those big names that are reportedly in with a shout include The Hurt Locker’s Kathryn Bigelow, Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke and Michelle McLaren of Game of Thrones fame. »

Warner Bros. Said To Be Eyeing This List Of Female Directors For Wonder Woman

24 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Forbes claim to have heard that Warner Bros. already have a list of female directors they're hoping will helm Wonder Woman for them in 2017. This list includes Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), and Julie Taymor, the woman responsible for the disaterous Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark. However, she has found acclaim for her work on The Tempest and others. Also being considered are TV directors Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) and Tricia Brook (The Walking Dead). The site adds that Bigelow, Leder, and Hardwicke, with MacLaren are the main contenders. Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow is of course a fan-favourite choice to helm Wonder Woman, and while the site says that she's in the mix, it appears as if that's based more on speculation than reliable insider information.  Regardless, if true, this isn't a bad start and it will be refreshing to »

How 'The Shawshank Redemption' invented Morgan Freeman, and how Morgan Freeman invented himself

Guardians of the Galaxy renamed to “Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team” in China

8 October 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s not unusual for China or other Asian countries to change the names of popular movies and, more often than not, they end up being funnier or more apt than the original English titles. It was announced by James Gunn via Twitter that Guardians of the Galaxy is no exception to the rule and has been renamed Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team for its Chinese release.

Here’s the tweet:

星際異攻隊 – that is, Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team -opens Friday in China! pic.twitter.com/9XpSoxqrAU

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) October 6, 2014

However, some have noted over at Reddit that this could actually be the Taiwanese title and the poster in Gunn’s tweet is using traditional Chinese letters rather than simplified ones, which is a big deal when it comes to translation. Should that be the case, the title is actually Interstellar Special Ability Team or Interstellar Different Commandos. Both of which »

Donaldson Helms "Western Front" Remake

24 September 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Roger Donaldson ("The Recruit," "The November Man") has hopped onboard the remake of "All Quiet on the Western Front" for Radar Pictures.

The story explores the physical and emotional effects of trench warfare on a 19-year-old German soldier and his friends in uniform. The new take, penned by Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell, is said to include a gritty and realistic look about the "unforgiving nature of trench warfare".

Erich Maria Remarque's 1928 novel was previously adapted into the 1930 Lewis Milestone directed feature which won a Best Picture Oscar. Mimi Leder ("Deep Impact") was attached to direct several years ago, but she is no longer involved.

Filming is slated to begin in March in Europe.

'All Quiet on the Western Front' Lands 'November Man' Director

24 September 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The November Man director Roger Donaldson has boarded the gestating remake All Quiet on the Western Front for Radar Pictures. We first reported on the project back in July 2011, when Mimi Leder (Deep Impact) was attached to direct, but she is no longer involved.

The project is based on the 1928 novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque, a German World War I veteran who described the incredible stress of combat soldiers in his book. The original All Quiet on the Western Front adaptation was released in 1930, taking home Oscars for Best Picture and director Lewis Milestone. The remake is being developed to capture the "gritty realism and unforgiving nature of trench warfare."

Roger Donaldson is directing from a script by Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell. The writers are also producing alongside Radar Pictures' Ted Field, Mike Weber and Michael Napoliello. The director also has a personal connection to this remake, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

You don't want to miss a thing...that's wrong with Michael Bay's 'Armageddon'

26 August 2014 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When "Armageddon" was released in theaters in 1998, one might have thought audiences were done with asteroid movies. After all, "Deep Impact" had just come out two months before. But never underestimate the power of Michael Bay to inexplicably be a box office draw despite little to no care for things like pacing or plot. CinemaSins took a bullet (in space) for the team and counted up everything wrong with this film. But I take umbrage with the sentencing. I grew up in that town and quite frankly, haven't they suffered enough lately? »
