Watch: A Brief History of J.J. Abrams' Abandoned 'Superman: Flyby'

29 August 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Plenty of people are familiar with the failed Superman Lives project that director Tim Burton tried to put together with a script from Kevin Smith and wacky actor Nicolas Cage in the lead role. We've featured a couple trailers for a Kickstarter documentary showcasing the making of the movie that never was, but there's another attempt to make a Superman movie that fewer people might know about. Before Bryan Singer would direct Superman Returns, Warner Bros. tried their hand at a film called Superman: Flyby, with a script from J.J. Abrams and questionable director Brett Ratner behind the camera. Watch now! Here's a brief history of Superman: Flyby in an excerpt of Mr. Sunday Movies (via io9): It's not hard to find the script online if you really want to read what could have been, but here's what Wikipedia has written on the project that fell apart in 2003: »

DC superhero movies that never got the greenlight

27 August 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…

Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.

However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.

We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »

'Trick 'r Treat' director to unleash Christmas demon 'Krampus' in 2015

19 August 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Dougherty's next holiday-themed horror movie is coming to a theater near you. The "Trick 'r Treat" director's "Krampus" - based on the German legend of a pagan demon who punishes misbehaving children at Christmastime - has been slated for release on November 25, 2015 by Universal and Legendary Pictures. The film is Dougherty's first directorial effort since the 2007 Halloween-themed horror anthology, which was delayed for two years before finally being released straight to DVD and Blu-ray in 2009 by Warner Bros./Legendary. Best known as the screenwriter behind Bryan Singer's "X2" and "Superman Returns," Dougherty announced development on a "Trick 'r Treat" sequel last October. The studios today also announced the release date for "Spectral," a 3D action-thriller about "an elite Spec Ops team on a mission to take down an aggressive phantom threat that cannot be explained." Directed by Nic Mathieu from a script by Ian Fried, George Nolfi and John Gatins, »

Interview: Composer John Ottman on 'X-Men,' Honey Boo Boo, and his favorite score ever

18 August 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Poznan, Poland—John Ottman is a traditionalist. The composer for such films as “XMen— Days of Future Past,” “Superman Returns,” “The Usual Suspects,” “X2: XMen United,” and “Apt Pupil,” writes scores in the style of his musical heroes, John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith. Here at the Transatlantyk Festival in Poznan, he talked to attendees about the emotional points film music should hit and lamented the lack of finesse in so many of today’s scores. Ottman is unique among composers in that he serves not only as the scorer for Bryan Singer’s films, he also edits them, which severely limits the amount of time he has to score. He recently emerged out of a three-year work jag that included working on “Jack the Giant Slayer,”  “X-Men—Days of Future Past.” My colleague Kris Tapley interviewed Ottman about “Days of Future Past,”  in May so I decided to do »

6 movie adaptations that, like 'The Giver,' came too late

15 August 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you were to go see The Giver this weekend without knowing a thing about the book it was based on, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s some sort of suburban Hunger Games ripoff. In reality, Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel predates just about every modern Ya film franchise, from The Hunger Games to Divergent to The Maze Runner—you might even say it established the authoritarian dystopia motif that’s in vogue these days. Unfortunately, all of those other books beat it to the big screen. Instead of looking like the groundbreaking, thoughtful story that’s in the novel, »

Oscar-winning composer Jan Kaczmarek on his Transatlantyk Festival and returing to scoring

14 August 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Poznan, Poland—Jan Kaczmarek is ready to get back to his first love. The composer, who took home the Oscar in 2004/ for scoring “Finding Neverland,” shifted his focus for the last several years to creating Transatlantyk here in Poznan, in his native Poland. In its fourth year, the week-long  “festival of ideas” continues to draw top composers and filmmakers and other creative talents who join together for screenings, thoughtful discussions, concerts and much more.   Kaczmarek has managed to squeeze in the occasional film score, such as this year’s German film, “Inbetween Worlds,” but it’s been a while since he has scored a Hollywood film, such as 2002’s “”Unfaithful.” or “2007’s “The Visitor,” or 2009’s “Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.” Most recently, he wrote an opera commissioned by Poland's Jagiellonian University that premiered in front of 14,000. His first step is to get back to Los Angeles —he splits his »

Guillermo del Toro May Use TV’s Constantine For Justice League Dark

11 August 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fan-favorite director Guillermo del Toro is a pretty busy guy, who picks up and drops out of projects at an alarming pace. Luckily for us, Justice League Dark is a film that he’s very much interested in making, and recently stated that he’s still hard at work on making it a reality. The film will focus on the “Dark Universe” of DC Comics mythology, and exist within the same continuity as the rest of the Dccu, which kicked off with last year’s Man of Steel and continues in 2016 with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. If del Toro plays his cards right, and impresses the studio heads at Warner Brothers, Justice League Dark could very well become one of the nine untitled DC films that are slated for release between 2016 and 2020.

One of the most interesting (and inherently problematic) things about Justice League Dark is the fact »

Watch the return of Coach Ted Lasso featuring Jason Sudekis

11 August 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Jason Sudekis (Horrible Bosses) brought us a skit that featured him as an American football (or soccer) coach who was hired to manage Tottenham Hotspur. Since he was let go from duty (after just six and a half hours), he now finds himself working at NBC as a pundit.

Still inept as ever, watch as Ted Lasso as he doesn’t understand live TV, struggle with time differences and run into someone how looks an awful lot like Everton and USA keeper Tim Howard.

Watch the video below:

Jason Sudekis will return to cinema screens later this year with Horrible Bosses 2 alongside returning cast members Charlie Day (The Lego Movie), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jennifer Aniston (We’re The Millers), Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) and newcomers Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Christoph Waltz (Muppets Most Wanted).

Menahem Golan, prolific producer of '80s action pics, dies at 85

8 August 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Menahem Golan, best known for producing and directing scores of schlocky ’80s action pics under the Cannon Films banner—including the likes of Bloodsport and some of the Death Wish sequels—died Friday, Haaretz reports. He was 85.

Obsessed with movies from a young age, the Israeli-born Golan got his start working with B-movie master Roger Corman on 1963’s The Young Racers. He eventually teamed up with his cousin Yoram Globus to head up The Cannon Group, a fledgling production company that they bought in 1979. They transformed Cannon into a veritable force in the industry by the mid-’80s, producing testosterone-driven »

Full ‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Features Ra’s al Ghul

27 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Whereas Arrow season 1 was more or less Green Arrow by way of Christopher Nolan’s Batman (with some CW drama mixed in for good measure), season 2 upped the ante considerably by adding Deathstroke the Terminator, superpowered villains, Barry Allen, the Suicide Squad, and more. Plus, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) himself became more of a “superhero” than a vigilante; now he sports a green domino mask like the one he wears in the comics, he goes by “Arrow” instead of “The Hood,” and he no longer kills as he did in the first season.

Good news, Arrow fans – everything we know about season 3 indicates that it’ll up the ante even more. Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) will play Ray Palmer, who becomes The Atom in the comics; Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) will become Click to continue reading Full ‘Arrow’ Season 3 Trailer Features Ra’s al Ghul

Wildcat And Ra’s Al Ghul Are Heading To Arrow

27 July 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman ReturnsBrandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.

The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

Bryan Singer Dismissed From Sex Abuse Lawsuit

25 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Bryan Singer has some cause for celebration. The X-Men: Days of Future Past director has been dismissed from a UK sex abuse lawsuit filed by an anonymous British actor.

Court papers were filed in central California today that dismisses the case against Singer “with prejudice,” ending Singer’s involvement in the suit and vindicating both him and his attorney Marty Singer (no relation), who says that he’s “pleased the case was dismissed.”

Bryan Singer has had several sex-abuse allegations levelled against him, beginning with the lawsuit brought about by actor Michael Egan that stated Singer had abused him when he was a teen. Both that lawsuit and the now-dismissed UK suit were filed by attorney Jeff Herman. The UK suit involved allegations that Singer had sex with the then 17 year old plaintiff at a Superman Returns after-party in London. The plaintiff claimed that he resisted, but was held »
