New Trailer For ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Brings Together Heroes, Villains, And Bricks

23 July 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

” ‘Lego Batman’ is ‘About A Boy‘ as directed by Michael Mann,” director Chris McKay told USA Today. “This is a single guy who suddenly has a kid literally drop into his world.” If that’s not the perfect sell for “The Lego Batman Movie,” I don’t know what is, but the more the filmmaker talks about […]

Newswire: Lego Batman’s Comic-Con panel introduces Lego Robin and Lego Batgirl

23 July 2016 2:11 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The new Justice League footage is a less serious than anything in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but that’s not really saying much. If it’s still too serious for you, though, it sounds like The Lego Batman Movie will prove once again just how versatile the Dark Knight can really be. Lego Batman director Chris McKay underlined this point during Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con panel, explaining that he wants the movie to be “About A Boy as directed by Michael Mann.”

That’s an appropriate comparison, considering that the panel also showed off some new footage that featured the introduction of Michael Cera’s Lego Robin, who reportedly annoys Batman by repeatedly calling him “Dad.” The footage also featured a Lego Barbara Gordon, who Batman introduced as his “platonic bat-friend,” an especially weird line given that Killing Joke stuff. There was even a new trailer, which hasn’t »

The Joker and Robin featured in The Lego Batman Movie sneak peek images

20 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the Warner Bros. San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday, the studio has unveiled four never-before-seen images from The Lego Batman Movie, the upcoming animated spin-off to 2014’s The Lego Movie. Will Arnett’s titular superhero/Bruce Wayne was the main focus of the first two teasers and batch of images released for the film earlier this year, but these new pictures offer up a glimpse at two hugely important characters in Batman and DC Comics lore: Zach Galifianakis’ The Joker and Michael Cera’s Robin/Dick Grayson. Additionally, The Joker’s Suicide Squad co-star and iconic sidekick, Harley Quinn, is shown driving a flashy convertible in one of the stills.

Elba and Winslet in "Mountain" Love

10 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We just don't get enough romantic plane crash epics anymore. Or even actual romantic fireworks.

But here's a future screen coupling too hot to ignore: Kate Winslet will be joing Idris Elba in the disaster romance novel adaptation The Mountain Between Us. With their collective charisma, that's a tough pair to imagine not stirring some real screen passion. Is it too late to just retitle it They Have Lots of Sex Scenes on A Beach?

Mountain stars the two a strangers whose plane goes down in the mountains and they must battle broken bones and frigid cold as chances for rescue grow slim. So not as sexy as one would hope. The drama sounds less like a Swept Away trifle than it does The Revenant with kisses replacing the stabs. Hany Abu-Assad (twice Oscar nominated in Foreign Language for directing Omar and Paradise Now) is helming a script from Chris Weitz »

Season three will see Rodrigo and many musicians take their talents on tour to Europe, an Amazon statement said.

Bellucci recently played a Bond girl named Lucia in “Spectre” and will be starring in Showtime’s upcoming “Twin Peaks” reboot TV series, details of which are being kept under wraps.

Interview: Nicholas Hoult talks ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

17 May 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The X-Men are about to meet their most formidable adversary yet, and to fight a mutant who is essentially a living god, they’re going to have to work together like never before. 10 years have passed since the events of Days of Future Past and our heroes are in very different places. While Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult) finally have their school for gifted youngsters open, welcoming and educating mutants who are just growing into their powers, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is clandestinely helping less fortunate mutants to fight back against human oppression, convinced that there will never truly be peace. And Erik Lensherr, the man also known as Magneto (Michael Fassbender) has opted for a quiet family existence in Poland. But all their lives change when the supremely powerful Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) awakens in 1983. Angered by what he views as a human society gone very wrong, »

The Final Six

Sony has scored the movie rights to Alexandra Monir's upcoming space thriller novel "The Final Six," a deal made even though only the book proposal and a few chapters were available - in fact the book's publishing rights are about to go up for auction.

The story imagines a present-day world under a first-of-its-kind coalition between the United Nations and the international space agencies, with a plot to send a team of six intrepid teenagers to create the first human settlement on Jupiter's moon, Europa. [Source: Variety]

Deadpool

Following the news about its massive success on Digital HD, Fox has released the full six-minute gag reel for the "Deadpool" film and - understandably - is definitely not safe for work.
