10 Overlooked Movie Licensed Games (That Were Actually Awesome)

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ubisoft

After years and years of being burned by godawful movie tie-in games, players in 2015 are pretty justified when they meet every newly-announced title with the same exhausted sigh.

In fact, players have been disappointed by soulless movie games so much over the past decade or so, that even when a good title comes out, they probably won’t even play it due to the stigma that lingers around the entire sub-genre. But when it comes down to it, there are plenty of movie-inspired games that haven’t received the praise they deserved, just because they happened to be born out of one of the most hated genres in the history of gaming. 

Because of this reputation it’s very easy to forget that some of the medium’s most iconic titles have actually been licensed video games. You might have to dig through a pile of terrible Charlie’s Angels titles to find them, »

Alex Reviews The Death Of Superman Lives – A Must-See For Any Superhero Movie Fan

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jon Schnepp

Rating: ★★★★

Superman Lives is the ultimate superhero movie “What If?” A Tim Burton-directed, Nicolas Cage-starring reboot of the franchise adapting The Death Of Superman, it’s a bizarre film that languished in development hell mere years before the modern comic book resurgence began.

The thing is, what most people know about the film begins and ends with that single photo of Cage mid-blink at a costume-fitting. The cause of endless derision across the internet, it’s actually a pretty inaccurate representation of what Burton and co. were cooking up.

Jon Schnepp attempts to shed some light on the famed troubled production with his lovingly and exhaustively researched documentary, The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? What he reveals is that, far from being an obvious disaster waiting to happen, Lives was an incredibly exciting project, with a unique, well-defined vision. Whether it would have been any »

Gyllenhaal Talks Passing On Batman, Spidey

2 August 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One person who has been offered comic book movies in the past and has turned them down has been Jake Gyllenhaal. At times the actor was under heavy consideration for perhaps the two biggest superheroes there are - Batman and Spider-Man.

Gyllenhaal was being lined-up for "Spider-Man 2" after Tobey Maguire was injured and looked like he would not be returning to the role. Maguire ultimately was able to return to do the work. Gyllenhaal was also up for the lead in "Batman Begins," a role that ultimately went to Christian Bale.

He didn't get either role, and speaking with The Daily Mail he says it didn't really impact his career or life one way or another:

"I believe whatever happens, happens for good. I was definitely open to both the roles (of Spider- Man and Batman). However at a certain point you realise there is always someone more interesting, »

Michael Chabon Writing Disney’s Bob The Musical

28 July 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney’s long-gestating musical comedy Bob the Musical, in which The Artist helmer Michel Hazanavicius may direct Tom Cruise, will be written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon, The Hollywood Reporter revealed last night. Additionally, Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets has been enlisted to write songs for the pic.

Bob the Musical centers on a regular guy who suffers a head injury after which he is able to hear the heart songs of everyone around him – much to his confusion and dismay. It’s been in development for more than a decade but recently got a shot in the arm when Hazanavicius, searching for a mainstream project to tackle in the wake of 2011 Best Picture winner The Artist, got involved.

As for Cruise, he’s still circling the lead role but has not signed on yet. The actor has flourished in musical »

Sam Raimi Has Total Faith in Marvel's 'Spider-Man'

19 July 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Sony Pictures and Marvel are finally joining forces on a new Spider-Man movie, fans have been voicing their pleasure and displeasure with the news of a third Spidey reboot in 15 years. Tom Holland has signed on to play Peter Parker, with the studios offering Marisa Tomei the Aunt May role. One person we haven't heard from yet regarding this new web-slinger is director Sam Raimi, who directed Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. While promoting his upcoming Starz TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead at Comic-Con, the director told MTV that he thought Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 were "great," and expressed his excitement that the studios are bringing Peter Parker back to high school.

"I saw [both Marc Webb movies], they're great. And I'm really glad that Marvel is taking it to high school. I think that's gonna be refreshing, and just like my favorite of the Spider-Man comic-books. »

Icons of Fright Interview with 7 Minutes Director Jay Martin!

2 July 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Having started his career as both a music video director (his video for Atreyu’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” is a fave of mine) and a storyboard artist on films like Amazing Spiderman 2 and Constantine, Jay Martin’s directorial feature debut 7 Minutes is a heist gone wrong film full of tension and suspense. Dealing with jumping timelines, and a lot of energy, the Jason Ritter, Luke Mitchell and Zane Holtz-led crime thriller is now in theaters and is one wild ride.

Martin was nice enough to chat with Icons of Fright about his inspiration with the film, the transition of going from music videos to films and some awesome wardrobe choices for Zane Holtz’s character in the film. Read on!

 

I have always been interested in the heist gone wrong kinds of films, like Dog Day Afternoon. Those are my favorite movies, so your movie had me at the very beginning. »

Which is better, 'Terminator' or 'Terminator 2'?

1 July 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since the release of 1991's groundbreaking visual effects spectacle "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," folks have been wondering and debating: is the sequel actually better than the original movie? Both have their defenders, though "T2" falls into that rare category of sequels ("The Godfather Part II," "Aliens," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Evil Dead II," "Spider-Man 2," et al.) that are generally upheld as either equal or superior to their predecessors. So which is the better movie? This week seems like the perfect time to re-hash the question. Will you vote for the lean, mean original or its bigger-budget, CGI-enhanced sequel? Hot tip: if you think "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" is superior to both of those, please don't ever leave your house again. Vote below as if your future depended on it. »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

‘Terminator Genisys’ & ‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Enter July 4th Frame Too Close To Call

29 June 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Remember those Independence Day weekends at the box office when records were set? Well, this weekend isn’t going to be one of them. At the high end of the July 4 holiday, you have former titans such as Paramount’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon raking in $180.7M over six days in 2011 or Sony’s Spider-Man 2 posting a six-day bow of $180.1M in 2004.

Kevin Feige says Marvel has “big plans” for The Wasp

29 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who have been clamouring to have a big screen solo adventure for Black Widow might just have to wait a little bit longer, because according to Kevin Fiege, The Wasp could be a major part of the McU.

Speaking at a press event for Ant-Man, Feige talked about The Wasp and her place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“We have plans for her in the future,” he said. “And we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man].”

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne has not been confirmed for the next up coming ensemble movie Captain America: Civil War, but could a special cameo be in play?

Kevin Feige Says 'Spider-Man 2' Is "One Of The Best Superhero Movies Ever," Talks John Hughes Influence On New Spidey

29 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Perhaps like Christopher Nolan's take on Batman, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies (okay, except the third one), have set a pretty high bar for everyone's favorite webslinger. Try as they did, Sony, Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield couldn't get the mix right on the failed "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies, but Marvel is now getting their crack at Peter Parker, and honcho Kevin Feige knows that he's got a big job ahead. “We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think 'Spider-Man 2' is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to,” he told SuperHeroHype. But just how will this new iteration of Spider-Man differ? Well, as has been rumored for the past couple of months, Feige and co. will be drawing on the influence of one of key portraitists of young adult life. »

Kevin Feige thinks Spider-Man 2 is “one of the best superhero movies ever”

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, discussions about the character have been the number one topic of conversation for Kevin Feige. But it seems as though the Marvel head honcho is on the same page as most of the Internet in his preference of Spider-Man movies.

“Right now, it’s all about producing the new stand-alone Spider-Man movie,” Feige told Superhero Hype. “That’s what Sony is focused on. That’s what we’re focused on, and whatever happened before that or after that, sort of remains to be seen, but it’s all about producing the best Spider-Man movie we can, certainly within the Sony Universe… We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to.”

Marvel's Feige Talks "Spider-Man" Future

28 June 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Ant-Man" slated to hit cinemas soon, Marvel's Kevin Feige has taken some time out to talk "Spider-Man" and has shared some further details regarding how their deal with Sony Pictures works.

SuperHeroHype spoke with Feige who only had good things to say about the partnership:

"We're producing that movie for Sony and in partnership with Amy Pascal, so it's been going through the same process of any other Marvel film would, and it's been great. Tom Rothman at Sony has been very supportive in the decisions and obviously the two big ones we announced this week."

Would any of the previous Spider-Man films inspire the upcoming one?

"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that's a lot to live up to."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Marvel/Sony picks a Spider-Man actor in Tom Holland and a director in Jon Watts

24 June 2015 4:17 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After what seems like one of the longest casting processes in a while, Marvel and Sony have settled on the next actor to play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego Spider-Man. The search literally took months, involved names both expected and unexpected, but finally concluded yesterday. Putting on the costume will be young Tom Holland, while stepping behind the camera will be Jon Watts. Not familiar with either of those names that Marvel Cinematic Universe godfather Kevin Feige saw fit to hire? Fear not, as I’ll give you the rundown on who they are below, along with who they beat out for their plum new gigs in each case. First up, I should remind you where the character has gone before. We’re getting our third incarnation of Spidey, with Tobey Maguire as Peter in the first three films that Sony put out (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3 »
