22 September 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The already star-studded voice cast of Netflix’s multi-Emmy-winning Trollhunters is about to get another healthy dose of star power, as Deadline reports that three acting heavyweights have signed on for recurring roles in the show’s second season.

Film and TV stars Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and David Bradley (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) will lend their voices to the acclaimed animated children’s Netflix program, which comes from Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) and DreamWorks Animation TV. They will be joined by returning season 1 cast members Charlie SaxtonJonathan HydeKelsey GrammerRon PerlmanAmy Landecker, Steven Yeun and Anjelica Huston. The star of the show, Anton Yelchin, recorded nearly all of his lines through season 2 before his untimely death, so his voice will once again be heard in the forthcoming season.

Ed Catto: On Target with Green Arrow and Richard Gray

18 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Moving Target: The History and Evolution of Green Arrow by Richard Gray. Sequart, $17.99 paperback; $6.99 Kindle edition

Way back when, Green Arrow was sort of the “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” of the superhero set. For a long time, fans could enjoy a new Green Arrow adventure just about every month, but he didn’t enjoy the headliner popularity of his hero pals like Batman or even Wonder Woman.

That’s all almost forgotten now. Today, so many fans enjoy this modern-day Robin Hood in comics, on TV and with licensed merchandise.

For some, Green Arrow became “a thing” when he debuted on TV, first as one of Superboy’s pals in Smallville and then in his own series. (He was briefly on Saturday morning cartoons before that too.)

Comics fan, and local dad, Greg Parker started with the TV series and now reads the comics. “In today’s »

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the »

Locarno Festival 2017 Lineup: The Best Summer Movie Counterprogramming You Could Ask For

15 July 2017 10:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The summer movie season may start winding down by early August, but for cinephiles, that’s when the real fun begins. While the fall season festivals — epitomized by the trio of awards season influencers Telluride, Toronto and New York — are a massive platform for major prestige titles at the end of the year, the Locarno Film Festival has the jump on all of them, and provides the most diverse range of cinema you’ll see anywhere in the world.

The 70th edition, announced this week, provides the latest example. No festival embodies the “something for everyone” philosophy better than Locarno, which complements its cinephile-oriented sections with another one exclusively designed for wider audiences. That would be the Piazza Grande, where 16 features screen outdoors for an audience of 8,000 people. But rather than simply showcasing the same summer blockbusters that have dominated the box office, the Piazza features international efforts well suited to pleasing massive crowds, »

Sam Beazley obituary

11 July 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Harry Potter actor and antiques dealer who worked with Gielgud in the 1930s and returned to the screen and stage at age 73

Few actors can have enjoyed a career as unusual as that of Sam Beazley, who has died aged 101. After appearing as a child actor in Where the Rainbow Ends, the Edwardian children’s standard, and as a teenager with John Gielgud’s company in two of the most famous Shakespeare productions of the 20th century, he abandoned the London stage, depressed by a bad review. He went on to run an antique shop in London, but returned to acting full time when he retired at 73, working steadily on stage, screen and TV, playing an infinite variety of old men, including Professor Everard in the film Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).

Beazley came from a Wirral family in the cotton-broking business. His father, Gordon, had emerged »

Best ‘Harry Potter’ Book Plotlines and Scenes Left Out of the Movies

26 June 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Exactly 20 years ago, J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” hit bookshelves, marking the birth of a massive franchise, both in literature and on the big screen.

The films are lauded by fans by being largely faithful to Rowling’s beloved books, but there are a few key plotpoints that many wish had made it into the movies. In honor of the 20th anniversary milestone, Variety breaks down some of the biggest omissions.


Ask any Hermione Granger fan what the biggest injustice of the “Harry Potter” movies was, and they’ll likely tell you S.P.E.W. Hermione founded S.P.E.W. — Society for the Promotion of Elvish Welfare — after witnessing the gross treatment of house-elves at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. While the movement was highlighted briefly in the movies, thanks in large part to Dobby, S.P.E.W. saw Hermione as a champion for equal rights »

This 1 Overlooked Harry Potter Detail Reveals So Much About Mad-Eye Moody

8 June 2017 8:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Just when we thought we knew it all about Harry Potter, another subtle detail about the series comes and blows our minds. This time, it's about Alastor Moody, the retired auror who boasts an enchanted glass eye and a propensity for paranoid conspiracy theories. It turns out that Moody may have been the only person who laid eyes - errr, eye - on the true form of one of the series' most memorable magical creatures. A Redditor called UnavailableUsername_ made the connection using a specific moment from the Harry Potter books, notably in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Check it out below. Alastor Moody may have been one of the few wizards to see the real appearance of a boggart. from harrypotter You see, because of the magical qualities of Moody's glass eye, he was able to see through solid objects, and therefore, when presented with a boggart, »

12 Moments From MTV's Newlyweds That We're Still Laughing at Over a Decade Later

19 May 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

By far, 2003 was a big year. Lance Armstrong won his fifth Tour De France, Americans tried to rename "French Fries" to "Freedom Fries," and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was published. Oh, and MTV also released one of the greatest reality TV treasures of all time: Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica. The show followed the lives of newlywed singers Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson between 2003 and 2005, and although some episodes consisted entirely of Nick cleaning the pool while Jessica talked on the phone and bought expensive underwear, it was also full of iconic lines courtesy of the "With You" singer that went down in TV history.

Jude Law to Play a Young Dumbledore in 'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel

12 April 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Fantastic Beasts has found its Dumbledore!

Jude Law will play a young Albus Dumbledore in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, Warner Bros. announced via press release on Wednesday.

Exclusive: Emma Watson Says 'Harry Potter' Cast Has an Active Group Text Chain!

The film will take fans back to the world of Hogwarts, where Dumbledore, a contemporary of dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) is serving as the school's Transfiguration professor.

Law is the third actor to take on the role of Dumbledore. Richard Harris played the Hogwarts Headmaster and Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) mentor in the first two Harry Potter films, before Michael Gambon took over after his death.

J.K. Rowling, who made her screenwriting debut with the first Fantastic Beasts film, has also written the screenplay for the second movie, which is set to explore an "increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where [link=nm »

Why Ian McKellen Didn't Want to Play Dumbledore in Harry Potter

4 April 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While most fans of the Harry Potter movie franchise would associate the actor Michael Gambon with the iconic headmaster Albus Dumbledore, famed British actor Richard Harris originated the role. He appeared in the first two movies, 2001's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and 2002's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, before passing away in the fall of 2002, just weeks before Chamber of Secrets hit theaters. While Michael Gambon took over the role for the next six movies, another iconic big screen wizard could have played the role, Ian McKellen. The actor revealed during a BBC HardTalk interview that he was approached to take over for Richard Harris, but there was a very good reason why he didn't do so.

During his appearance on HardTalk, which recently surfaced on YouTube, interviewer Stephen Sackur mentioned that there was a time where Richard Harris himself criticized fellow British actors Ian McKellen, »

Harry Shearer: Why My 'Spinal Tap' Lawsuit Affects All Creators

4 April 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A little over three decades ago, This Is Spinal Tap perfectly parodied hard-rock excess with a pint-sized Stonehenge, amps that go "one louder" and the unforgettable phrase "Hello Cleveland." The mockumentary, which Ozzy Osbourne has said felt all too realistic, was written by its stars, comedians Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer, and director-actor Rob Reiner. "The closer we dared to get to the real thing, the closer the real thing dared to get to us," Shearer once told Rolling Stone. "It's like reality is calling our bluff at every step along the way. »

‘Dark Clouds’ is a Gorgeous, Visually-Stunning Environmental Snippet

21 March 2017 5:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Short of the DayFrom a member of the ‘Avatar’ VFX team.

Today’s short film comes from Peter Szewczyk, who some of you might know for his work in the field of visual effects: Szewczyk has worked on such groundbreaking films as Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2012, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Thor: The Dark World, and oh yeah, Avatar.

The following film, Dark Clouds, was made back in 2009 in Szewczyk’s spare time between the productions of 2012 and Avatar, and marks his first time in the director’s chair. It’s dialogue- and actor-free, environmentally-minded, and — as you’d expect given the director’s day job — visually dynamic and stunning. It’s also brief, just 1:45 seconds, but in that time it manages to pack a powerful punch and relay a vital message.

NYC Weekend Watch: Valentine’s Day Massacre, Andrzej Wajda, ‘Make Way for Tomorrow’ & More

9 February 2017 8:15 PM, PST | 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.

The annual “Valentine’s Day Massacre” offers films by Pialat, Elaine May, Albert Brooks, and Zulawski.

Dziga Vertov features screen.

Dceu: The WB's Bizarre Bookkeeping Strikes Again, As 'Banned' Producer Made $50M on Man Of Steel, More!

17 January 2017 3:17 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Something I've touched on many times before is that the accounting offices over at Warner Bros. deserve a closer look. If you follow box office analysis like I do, you'll come across experts in the field making claims like Harry Potter And The Order of The Phoenix actually Lost money for the studio, despite earning $938 million worldwide (I'll include a link to that in the Source). You'll also hear about the idea that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice needed to make something like $900-$920 million in order to be profitable, meaning the $827M it made actually leaves Warner Bros. in the red!

A new report from The Hollywood Reporter reveals exactly what kinds of practices often lead Warner Bros. to doing anything but "laughing all the way to the bank" when their movies fail critically but seemingly do so well financially.
