I’m pretty sure if you are checking out this post, you are most likely excited for David Fincher’s newest film, Gone Girl, set to release in early October. In the meantime while we sit and wait in anticipation, Gap has released four stylish ads as part of their new “Dress Normal” campaign – and all four spots were directed by the man himself. Leave it Fincher to completely strip away those earthy Gap colors, and showoff their new collection in stylish, cinematic black-and-white instead. The acclaimed director of such films as Fight Club, Zodiac, Se7en and The Social Network, is not, on the surface, who you’d expect to be associated with Gap’s bright persona; but these spots do tie into Gap’s product lineup for fall, which is heavy on black and gray denim. Taglines for the campaign include “Black is a color,” “Don’t be afraid of the dark, »
It's too long (almost three years) since we had a new film from David Fincher, the director having spent time away with TV series "House Of Cards," and with his frustrating and ultimately unfulfilled quest to make "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." But the wait is almost over: it's just a few weeks before "Gone Girl" premieres at the New York Film Festival. But to tide us over for one of the most anticipated films of the fall, four new commercials helmed by the "Fight Club" and "Social Network" director have arrived. Working in the advertising world is nothing new for Fincher, but the four spots are for a brand that you wouldn't traditionally associate with the director: the Gap. Yep, everyone's second-favorite khaki emporium have hired Fincher for a new campaign, and they've dumped their pastel and celeb-heavy approach for the director's technique. The ads are still pretty terrific, displaying »

Filmmaker David Fincher is one of the greatest directors currently living, having given us genuine masterpieces like "Fight Club" and "Zodiac." He also, occasionally, needs to get paid. So every so often he directs very expensive (and expensive-looking) commercials for companies who want his distinctive look and style for their products. And just like in his feature film work, the results are almost always brilliant (like a series of deliriously hilarious Nike commercials he directed in the nineties that featured Dennis Hopper as an unhinged referee).
Fincher's latest commercial work, as Adage points out, is for the Gap, who are doing a massive rebranding this fall. They're attempting to move away from the "chinos your less cool coworkers wear" image into something sexier, more vital, and definitely more youthful. The opening salvo in this campaign are a series of black-and-white commercials artfully directed by Fincher that are really, really cool. »

German Films said today that its nine-person jury has selected Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters as Germany’s official submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar race. The film tells the little-known true story of a ménage-à-trois among Friedrich Schiller and the von Lengefeld sisters, a utopia on the eve of the French Revolution. Florian Stetter, Hannah Herzsprung and Henriette Confurius have the lead roles. “This designation is for me the greatest joy and the confirmation of my work,” producer Uschi Reich said. “What great luck for us all.” Beloved Sisters premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February and hit German theaters July 31 via Senator Film Verleih. Nominations for the 87th Academy Awards will be announced January 15.

A major player in the movie industry not knowing who David Fincher is seems impossible. Even if you've never seen the likes of Se7en or Fight Club or Panic Room, the man's received two Oscar nominations for Best Director in the past five years. Fincher is big-game Hollywood talent. If you're involved in the industry, you'd have to at least know who he is, right? Well, no. Not if Tyler Perry is to be believed. The creator of the Madea series and a seemingly endless supply of other low-budget, high-earning hits is actually in David Fincher's new movie Gone Girl, but he revealed to New York Magazine that he wouldn't have said yes to the movie if he knew who David Fincher was: "When he agreed to play Gone Girl’s charismatic defense attorney...

Tyler Perry's social network apparently didn't include David Fincher prior to Gone Girl. During an interview about the movie with Vulture, the Madea writer-director-actor said he never would have signed on to the project if he'd known how popular the book was or been familiar with Fincher's career, which includes blockbuster films like The Social Network and Fight Club. "I had no sense of that," he said of all the anticipation around the movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling crime thriller, in which he stars as attorney [...] »
On Monday we learned from an interview with New York Magazine (via Yahoo) that before signing on to star in Gone Girl for director David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network), Academy member, director, actor, screenwriter and producer Tyler Perry had never heard of Fincher, wasn't familiar with his work and had no idea about the popularity of Gillian Flynn's novel from which the film is based. Perry has now said pretty much the same thing in a new interview with Vulture, though this time with a little bit of praise added to the quote. "I had no sense of how big the book was," Perry said. "If I had, I probably would have walked away from it. If I had known ... This is the honest-to-God's truth. If I had known who David Fincher was, and his body of work ... If I had known that the book was so popular, »

With a little over a month to go before its release, Fox has released a new trailer for Gone Girl, director David Fincher’s (Fight Club, Zodiac) adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name, which sees Ben Affleck (Argo) as a man who may or may not be responsible for the disappearance of his wife, played by Rosamund Pike (Hector and the Search for Happiness).

Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble.

Tyler Perry is incredibly successful when it comes to his Madea movies and his many TV shows, but he also likes to take supporting roles (and one lead role) in studio movies. But apparently he feels very uncomfortable joining the cast of films that are under the direction of top Hollywood directors. So why is he in David Fincher's "Gone Girl"? According to Perry, he had no idea who Fincher was. "I probably would have walked away from ['Gone Girl'] if I had known who David Fincher was and his body of work, or if I'd known the book was so popular," said Perry. "I would have said 'No' and my agent knew that! He didn't tell me until after I signed on!" The entire quote sounds bizarre. Is it possible that Perry never heard of the man who made "Fight Club," "Se7en," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Zodiac," "The Social Network, »
Tyler Perry is an above-average director, a money-making machine and by all accounts, a pretty affable guy. One thing he is not, however, is a film scholar. He proved that this week when he casually mentioned he had no idea who the hell David Fincher was until after he accepted a role in the acclaimed director.s newest adaptation, Gone Girl. Speaking to New York Magazine, Perry outlined some fun stories about singing along with Ben Affleck and discussed the pressures of playing a character from a book adaptation. Not surprisingly, however, those statements aren.t getting quite as much press as his casual reveal that he wasn.t at all familiar with David Fincher. Like David Fincher, David Fincher. The dude who directed Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network. Here.s a portion of the exact quote, courtesy of Yahoo. "I probably would have walked away from »
[Beware Of *Spoilers* Below!]
Thanks for Batman-News, we may have just gotten a little insight into what Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne may be like. According to the site, they've got the scoop on one of the man's hobbies- and it's one that seems pretty fitting to the character.
Bruce likes himself some Mma.
Their anonymous source claims that a scene was recently shot in a place that was turned into a mock-underground Mma arena. It evoked thoughts of Fight Club, and included a large crowd of men placing bets, as underground brawlers duke it out center stage. Wayne apparently shows up, which causes a bit of a stir as the onlookers are surprised to see a billionaire alone in this dark, violent, seedy place. As he places a bet and goes to the bar, he nonchalantly explains to a stunned patron, "I'm kind of a night person."
This sounds about right. It definitely »

In 1985, MGM brought former cop turned government agent Remo Williams to the screen with Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (a.k.a. Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous), hoping to launch a franchise based upon Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series of pulp novels with Fred Ward (Tremors) in the lead role.
While that effort failed to take off, it looks like Sony is looking to give the character another chance at big screen success, with Deadline revealing that Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3) has signed on to direct The Destroyer from a script by Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney, co-author of several books in the series.
“Shane has been a fan of the original Destroyer book series since its inception and he has an incredible vision for this film,” said Charles Roven (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who will serve as producer. »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
When a great project is in development, directors attempt to join that project by convincing producers that they're the right people for the job. One of the ways of getting that done is to put together a video, comprised of footage from other films, giving the producers an idea of the style and tone that they will bring. Today we have Rian Johnson's pitch video for "Looper." We know that he went on to direct the sci-fi movie, but it took footage from such films as "Se7en," "Fight Club," and "Blade Runner" to comprise a video that eventually convinced investors that he should be given an opportunity to direct the movie. "This is a fairly common thing to do when you're trying to get a movie off the ground, but it was the first time I tried it," Johnson explained. "It was meant to show more some of the film's tone, »
To celebrate the anniversary of the announcement of Ben Affleck as the new Batman, long-running fan site Batman News has posted a brief description of a scene regarding the character in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film.
Very Minor Spoilers Ahead
With Affleck having recovered from his injuries, the actor and Snyder were in Detroit shooting in the city's Masonic Temple which is normally used for weddings and other events.
The film crew didn't use the reception hall, rather they reportedly moved into the facility's giant kitchen and transformed it into an underground ultimate fighting arena ala "Fight Club".
Turns out Bruce Wayne is a bit of an mixed martial arts fan and the scene involves Mr. Wayne showing up and placing a bet on the outcome of a fight. When he's asked what he's doing there, he replies: "I'm kind of a night person. »
