After a rough few months following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s release, and rumours of backstage arguments over the direction of the DC Expanded Universe, Warner Bros. turned up at San Diego Comic Con’s Hall H, screened (and then publicly released) two huge trailers, dropped the mic and left. The much-mocked studio won Comic Con 2016.

Oli and Luke give their thoughts on those two trailers – the first teasers for next year’s Justice League and Wonder Woman.

Edgar Wright Lists His 1,000 Favorite Films Of All-Time: ‘Metropolis,’ ‘Annie Hall’ & More

27 July 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Edgar Wright is a multifaceted director, writer and producer known for his films “Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” among others. If you’ve ever wondered what movies he watches and what are his favorites, now you’re in luck!

Wright created a list of his 1,000 favorite films. Yes, one-thousand movies! The list, compiled by Mubi, is composed chronologically starting with Robert Wiene’s 1920 film “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” It’s unknown how long it took the filmmaker to create this catalog of classics, but it’s pretty interesting to see what’s on it.

The list has a variety of titles that would be a great place to start if you’re a film fanatic and want to do some research on classic cinema. It contains features from Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Woody Allen and many other great helmers. The list ends with »

Fantasia: Frontières showcases film and TV genre gems

22 July 2016 3:29 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two hot TV projects, an environmental zombie and an unhinged park ranger were among highlights at the eighth edition of the horror market.

Frontières International Co-Production Market continued to showcase its growth at Fantasia International Film Festival as it kicked off its eighth edition on Thursday [July 21].

Earlier this year, the genre market announced a new partnership with the Marché du Film at Cannes, and the popularity of its pitching session at Fantasia meant that it moved to the festival’s bigger venue to accommodate the growing industry interest.

This edition’s 20 projects also saw the market’s remit expand to include two television projects for the first time.

House Of Psychotic Women from Rook Films, behind the likes of Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers and Peter Strickland’s The Duke Of Burgundy, is based on horror critic Kier-La Janisse’s acclaimed memoir.

Centred on 15-year-old Carly as she navigates Winnipeg’s child welfare system, each episode »

'Star Trek Beyond's' Simon Pegg Reveals His Comic-Con Disguises

20 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The first year I went to Comic-Con was 2004 for Shaun of the Dead, and nobody had any idea who we were. I liked walking the floor — it was fun. It was bustling and interesting and full of things to look at. It was a huge celebration of all things geeky — childhood for adults. But nowadays it's hard for me to go anywhere in San Diego in July because a lot of what I've done has some relevance in that world. Nowhere do I feel more famous than at Comic-Con because if it's not Shaun of

Keanu review

18 July 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Published Date  Tuesday, July 19, 2016 - 05:39

The first movie from the team behind Comedy Central's Key & Peele sets itself apart from most action comedies in its prologue, in which an adorable grey kitten scampers through the slo-mo crossfire of a bloody warehouse massacre like he's the hero of a John Woo movie. Unlike so many genre parodies of its kind, Keanu actually captures the style of its subject. It only gets more impressive when it mixes in some authentic-looking Michael Mann too.

The cat then runs all the way to Rell (Jordan Peele), a heartbroken layabout who's recently been dumped by his girlfriend. Keanu the kitten brightens up Rell's life considerably, much to the relief of his strait-laced cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key). Their happiness is short-lived when Rell's home is targeted by burglars looking for his drug-dealing neighbour (Will Forte) and they've catnapped the only one who was at home. »

Gal Gadot talks Wonder Woman movie and working with director Patty Jenkins

16 July 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you a batch of new images from Wonder Woman featuring Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor [see here], and now we have some comments from Gadot, who has spoken to EW about Diana’s character, and working with director Patty Jenkins on the film.

“I feel like Diana is really accessible,” states Gadot. “It’s very easy to relate to her. She has the heart of a human so she can be emotional, she’s curious, she’s compassionate, she loves people. And then she has the powers of a goddess. She’s all for good, she fights for good, she believes in great. I want to be her. And in Wonder Woman, she has this naiveté in her. It isn’t stupid, it’s magical. I would want to be naïve like that again. She’s a young idealist who’s been taught »

The Last Sci-Fi Blog: Appreciating 'Ghostbusters'' Respect for Nerds

14 July 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

1984’s Ghostbusters is a comedy, first and foremost. However, the real brilliance of the film and its lasting appeal can be attributed to how each gag services the characters and their world. Even when Bill Murray is cracking wise and Dan Aykroyd is being a big goofball, the threat at the center of the film - a threat of “biblical proportions” - isn’t in on the joke. When an ancient demonic destroyer takes on the form of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the threat being imposed upon New York City isn’t lessened – it just looks absolutely hilarious. Like Back to the Future and later genre-infused comedies like Shaun of the Dead, Ghostbusters isn’t afraid to embrace the fact that it’s a ghost story. It’s just spooky enough, its...

Missing From Movies: William Atherton’s Dick

14 July 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Some actors were just born to be typecast.

“This man has no dick.” And neither do the movies anymore.

If you’re going to write a part specifically for William Atherton, it’s probably going to be inspired by his three most famous roles. That was clearly the case when he was cast for an episode of the TV series Lost, in which he plays a slimy high school principal character who was conceived with him in mind. It was a throwback to the assholes he embodied in Ghostbusters, Real Genius, and the first two Die Hard movies. Another one of his dicks.

Unfortunately, there aren’t enough people writing dick parts specifically for Atherton to play on the big screen. It’s been 20 years since his last (slightly) memorable movie continuation of the type, in Bio-Dome, and many of his fans probably aren’t even aware that he’s still alive and working regularly.
