Oscar’S Year Of Visual Effects, and The Art Of Seeing And Believing

6 February 2016 9:16 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

If you have been living and routinely interacting with other human beings over the last month, you’ve probably heard one or two words involving this year’s Academy Awards and the heated controversy over the startling lack of both films and people of color among the nominees. Personally, I think that the real focus of concern ought to be less on the back end-- awards handed out for films which were financed and/or studio-approved, scheduled for production and filmed perhaps as much as two or three years ago-- and more on addressing the lack of cultural and intellectual and experiential diversity among those who have the power to make the decisions as to what films get made in the first place. This is no sure-fire way to ensure that there will be a richer and more consistent representation of diverse creative voices when it comes time for Hollywood »

Check Out A Behind the Scenes Look at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

1 February 2016 5:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a Behind the Scenes look at the much-anticipated adventure Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which you can check out below.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an all-new adventure returning us to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling.  

Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.  Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, »

Lynda Carter won’t cameo in Wonder Woman

25 January 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Lynda Carter indicated that she’d be open to an appearance in Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman movie, should she be offered ” a piece that meant something”, as opposed to a walk-on cameo.

Well, it seems the former small screen Wonder Woman won’t be making an appearance alongside Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess after all, with Carter’s publicist telling The Washington Post that she isn’t in the film, but “wishes its success.”

The "Wonder Woman" Movie

20 January 2016 12:26 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports the role of  'Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons', the mother of 'Wonder Woman' (Gal Gadot) has been cast in director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" solo feature, based on the female superhero debuting in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":

Actress Connie Nielsen ("Gladiator", "Nymphomaniac") will play the character 'Hippolyta', originally created by "Wonder Woman" writer/psychologist William Moulton Marston and illustrator Harry G. Peter, debuting in "All Star Comics" #8 (1941).

Hippolyta and the Amazons once resided in 'Amazonia' in the days of ancient Greece...

...until they were 'beguiled and bested' by the demi-god 'Hercules', who had been sent after her by 'Ares', aka 'Mars'.

Hippolyta is seduced by Hercules, and he takes from her the 'Golden Girdle of Gaea', a gift from the gods...

...that enhances the strength and stamina of its wearer. Soon after Mars appropriates the girdle.

Watch the first footage from Wonder Woman solo film

20 January 2016 12:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Tuesday night, Warner Bros. gave fans an exciting look at several films in the DC Extended Universe as part of a half-hour special, DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League. Much of the special was devoted to DC’s 2016 outings – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad [watch the trailer here], but we also got a glimpse of what’s to come thanks to concept art that highlighted the other members of the Justice League – namely Aquaman, The Flash,and Cyborg – and the very first footage from the Wonder Woman solo film starring Gal Gadot.

Wonder Woman is currently in production under director Patty Jenkins, but the special still managed to provide an impressive amount of footage from the film, which shows Gadot in action as the Amazonian Princess (reintroducing speed-ramping into the Dceu) as well as a few glimpses of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.

Bet Founder Offers Solution to Fix Oscar Diversity Problem

19 January 2016 4:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L. Johnson weighed in on the furor surrounding the lack of minority nominees in this year’s Academy Awards race, suggesting the key to better outcomes in the future is encouraging both the movie studios and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to bring more minorities into their ranks.

Johnson did not comment directly on director Spike Lee’s call for a boycott of the Oscar broadcast on Feb. 28. Instead the Bet founder, now chairman of Rlj Entertainment, laid out four reforms to improve diversity:

•Engage the studios to encourage the casting of more African-Americans in films with black themes. “For example, why were ‘Gladiator,’ starring Russell Crowe, or ‘Braveheart,’ starring Mel Gibson, both greenlit, but not films based on the true story of the African general Hannibal or the African chief and warrior Shaka Zulu?” Johnson asked, in a prepared statement. “If »

Oscar Nominations 2016: Snubs, surprises and shockers

19 January 2016 1:23 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So, the long-awaited list is finally out, and it reads more like a luck-of-the-draw hand this year, particularly for some. Some very notable and highly conspicuous misses this year, that shouldn’t have been misses at all, and not in a way folks might be ruing over lost chances with the recent Powerball jackpot. Quite predictably, the reactions keep pouring in, sound and fury and all.

Here’s our top 5 upsets this Oscar season, and that’s even before Leo gets the snub all over again (we hope not, though!)

1. Ridley-me-that!

The Martian did pick up nominations for a number of categories including Best Picture and Actor in a Leading Role, but somehow failed to make the cut for the Best Director nomination! That’s one really hard-to-explain glitch in the system, coming on the back of the fact that Scott has also never won despite the critical and popular success of his films. »

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller took home the night’s best director award, »

New Wonder Woman set photos show Gal Gadot wielding a sword and shield

18 January 2016 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince/Wonder Woman can be seen wielding a sword and shield alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in new set photos from 2017’s Wonder Woman. In the photos, it looks like Prince, who is not in her traditional superhero costume, comes face to face with the sword and shield due to an encounter with an unknown woman. Also noteworthy is that the sword and shield appear to be different than the ones the Amazonian warrior has been seen holding in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check out the pictures below…

The photos come on the heels of the announcement that Connie Nielsen has joined the film’s cast as Queen Hippolyta; additionally, Chris Pine confirmed in a recent interview that the film will be set during World War I.

'Wonder Woman' Casts Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta

15 January 2016 3:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production on Wonder Woman has been under way since November, with most of the major cast members in place before principal photography commenced. There is one important character from the comic books that hasn't been cast, but now it seems that role has been filled. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Danish actress Connie Nielsen has signed on to portray Hippolyta, ruling Queen of the Amazonians and mother of Gal Gadot's title character.

No details were revealed about how she is involved in the story, but last year a rumor surfaced that Wonder Woman will be set in three different time periods and settings. One of these settings is Diana's homeland of Themyscira, and it is rumored that the Italy portion of the shoot will be used for the Themyscira scenes. It was also recently confirmed that another setting is World War I, with the last setting being present day, »

Wonder Woman's Mother Cast in Upcoming Film

15 January 2016 2:24 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While it won't be long now until Wonder Woman makes her DC Cinematic Universe debut, let's not forget that we have an actual "Wonder Woman" moving making its way to theaters in the next year and a half or so. The past several weeks seem to have been a revolving door of actresses rumored to play the superheroine's mother. First it was Cate Blanchett who was rumored to take on the role of Hippolyta, and not long after that, Nicole Kidman was rumored to be taking on the role. Some also speculated that Robin Wright will be portraying the character, but now we know that such rumors were false.

The Hollywood Reporter had the exclusive report that Danish actress Connie Nielsen will indeed be playing the Amazonian queen Hippolyta in the film. While the actress is no stranger to American TV (she was in several episodes of "The Good Wife, »

Wonder Woman Just Cast A Major Role, Get The Details

15 January 2016 2:14 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Although Wonder Woman’s principal cast has been assembled since last November, most of the characters haven’t been identified. Until today, all we kew was that Gal Gadot is reprising Diana of Themyscira following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while Star Trek’s Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor. Now we can add a third player to the list, as Warner Bros. just cast Gladiator’s Connie Nielsen as Wonder Woman’s mother Hippolyta. Just like in the comics, Nielsen’s Hippolyta will be the queen of the Amazons in Wonder Woman, according to THR. Although Nicole Kidman was briefly rumored to be up for the role, that obviously didn’t end up working out. In addition to Gadot and Pine, Nielsen joins a cast that consists of Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena »

Connie Nielsen to play Hippolyta in Wonder Woman, Chris Pine confirms World War I setting

15 January 2016 2:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we heard some potential casting news on Aquaman, with Amber Heard (Magic Mike Xxl) in talks to play Mera, and now comes news on another DC Extended Universe movie, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Connie Nielsen has nabbed the role of Hippolyta in Wonder Woman.

Hippolyta is the mother of Diana (Gal Gadot) and the queen of Themyscira; the character made her first comic book appearance alongside her daughter way back in 1941’s All Star Comics #8.

Meanwhile, Chris Pine has been speaking to the Toronto Sun about the Amazon Princess’ solo movie, confirming what we’ve suspected given the set photos: that the film is set to take place – at least in part – during World War I.

“It’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II,” said Pine. “Our costume design is incredible. »
