Matt Ryan to reprise Constantine role for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3

8 October 2017 2:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In addition to the newly-announced CW Seed animated series, it has been announced that Matt Ryan will be returning to the Arrowverse in live-action, reprising the role of supernatural detective John Constantine for an upcoming guest role in season three of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Asked by Rotten Tomatoes what season three holds, executive producer Phil Klemmer said: ““We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar (Simon Merrells) on the beach in Aruba in the premiere. We meet [new team member] Zari (Tala Ashe) in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the 80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism. We do a Freaky Friday episode. The only thing we haven’t been able to do: We really wanted to do an Abba ‘Waterloo’ in then Napoleonic »

Why J.J. Abrams’ Your Name’ Remake Could Be a Golden Opportunity for Hollywood to Get Things Right

28 September 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Imagine that you’re one of the most powerful people in the film business. The sun is just starting to set on another ominously hot September day, but everything looks beautiful and infinite through the floor-to-ceiling windows of your sleek Hollywood office. It wouldn’t be accurate to say that you’re living the dream, because even your wildest fantasies were never this good. The check you got to direct your second “Star Wars” movie had so many digits on it that it looked more like a business card, and the next check someone writes you is going to be blank. And then — pop! — it happens. You get another one of those magical Big Ideas that minted you as a modern titan: What the world truly needs right now is another live-action American remake of a phenomenally popular Japanese anime.

Perfect. A foolproof plan. Sure, Netflix wouldn’t tell you »

‘Hillary Clinton’s Not Very Bright’: Steve Bannon Says President Trump Is Smarter Than Ex-Secretary of State

11 September 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In his first television interview since leaving the White House, President Donald Trump‘s former chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, where he asserted that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “not very bright.”

“Everybody says she’s so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump,” Bannon said of Trump’s 2016 presidential rival. “She doesn’t really have a grasp. She doesn’t have a grasp on what’s important and what’s not. And that’s what’s essential in a leader.”

'High Fantasy': Film Review | Tiff 2017

10 September 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A Freaky Friday exploration of identity politics as they're felt by today's college-age kids, Jenna Bass' High Fantasy sends four ethnically diverse friends off into the desert of South Africa's Northern Cape and then magically transports each one into the body of another. It's shot mostly on these characters' haphazardly-held phones, spliced together with reality-tv-style post-trip interviews, and any reader to whom this is starting to sound annoying will almost certainly say "yep, thought so" while viewing. That doesn't mean the picture is totally without merit, even for viewers to whom the many kinds of inequality plaguing our world are »

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in September

16 August 2017 5:07 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

August has been Friends Month at Hulu, with the streaming service getting a big collection of movies and TV shows that are all about people who have friends or whatever, so it’s appropriate that September will be Family Month—a month dedicated to movies and TV shows about people who either have families or don’t have families because their parents were gunned down in an alley. In September, Hulu subscribers will be able to catch such family-centric content as The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, season 13 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Batman, Batman Returns, Carrie, My Girl, Robocop, And You Thought Your Parents Were Weird, Silent Hill, Freaky Friday (1977), Freaky Friday (2003), and Lilo & Stitch—though that one’s technically about ‘ohana, which means family.

Subscribers will also be able to watch a bunch of classic Tgif sitcoms, most of which revolve around families »

Face/Off at 20: revisiting the film

27 July 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Martinovic Jul 28, 2017

John Travolta and Nicolas Cage scored a big hit in John Woo's Face/Off. We take a look back...

One of the great pleasures of following genre cinema is the long, enduring onscreen conversation that’s taken place between movie directors from the East and the West, a creative push and pull which has resulted in some of the most boundary-pushing, inventive and important films ever made. When Akira Kurosawa wrote The Hidden Fortress, an airy homage to the John Ford Westerns he loved so much, he can’t have predicted its rollicking adventuring would be re-interpreted and sent into space by George Lucas to form the basis of the most successful film franchise in history in Star Wars: A New Hope. Similarly, when Ringo Lam took the tropes of 70’s Eurocrime and American gangster movies of the 30s and 40s, and upped the machismo and »

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Drops Season 3 Trailer, Explains Those Dinosaurs

22 July 2017 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After rolling a new Season 3 trailer out at the top of the Warner Bros. panel, “Legends of Tomorrow” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Phil Klemmer took the Comic-Con stage with cast members Tala Ashe, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Victor Garber, and Franz Drameh.

Here’s what we learned: Guggenheim explained, “We won’t fix time immediately but we’ll see how dinosaurs in Los Angeles happened.” Klemmer added, “Last season, Legends were the only game in town. Now, Rip Hunter has constituted a new version of what Time Hunters are. Now, Legends are up against the best and brightest.”

About villains fans can expect in the new season, Klemmer teased, “We want to lean into that collection of villains from various DC shows, perhaps some non-human villains.” Guggenheim added, “We’re bringing Colassa from the CW Seed series onto the show and the inevitable confrontation between Maisie and her granddaughter.”

‘Crosswind #1′ Review

27 June 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Gail Simone | Art by Cat Staggs | Published by Image Comics

One of the best benefits of comics is that the format allows you to easily take a known concept or storyline and modify it to an unexpected genre. Gail Simone and Cat Staggs’s  Crosswind takes the idea of the good old body-swap we have seen in movies like Freaky Friday and adds a more mature tone. As a first issue, it works as mostly setup. Like a long form standup,  we have a long lead into the eventual punchline that happens in the final moments. Some of that lead in has its rough patches, but overall as a first issue, it works well enough to garner interest for what is to come next.

Unlike Freaky Friday this is not a story where a mother and daughter switch bodies. In fact, the two people in this story do »

Our Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting Duos

Our Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting DuosOur Favourite Mother/Daughter Acting DuosZachary Dent5/12/2017 3:40:00 Pm

To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.

Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis

Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

NYC Weekend Watch: Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tarkovsky x2, ‘Twin Peaks’ Performances & More

11 May 2017 7:09 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

A series devoted to films scored by Ryuichi Sakamoto offers an absolute murderer’s row.

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies, »
