Production on The CW’s upcoming Flash series has begun, with the pilot filming in Vancouver this month. We got our first look at Glee alum Grant Gustin in costume as the scarlet speedster (well, from the neck up, that is) at the end of February, and now have our much anticipated look at the full outfit, which you can check out below.
The first thing worth noting is that this is a terrible angle and pose. I get what they’re going for here, but Gustin just looks incredibly awkward and a bit uncomfortable. The suit, however, looks great. The costume was designed by three time Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Alice in Wonderland) who also designed Oliver Queen’s costume on Arrow. While Arrow has been a bit shy about its superhero roots, and the costume has a very gritty, Dark Knight-like feel, this get-up for The Flash is decidedly, »

A week and a half ago, The Flash‘s costumed head was bestowed upon us, but now, check out the extraordinarily cool look at the entire suit as modeled by Grant Gustin, who plays the part of Barry Allen, known by the cool kids as The Flash, as he will be attired in the pilot of the same name:
News Flash — In Full! The Flash Full-suit Image Revealed For The First Time As Production Continues On New Pilot For The CW From Warner Bros. Television, Based Upon Characters Published By DC Comics Costume Designed by Three-Time Academy Award® Winner Colleen Atwood
As production continues on The CW’s new pilot The Flash, from Warner Bros. Television and based upon characters published by DC Comics, the companies today are releasing the first full-suit image of series star Grant Gustin as The Flash.

Late last month, The CW released the first official image of Grant Gustin as The Flash as filming on the pilot began. However, as the image showed him both only from the neck up and from the side, the majority of fans were still anxious to feel the suit in its entirety. Well, consider that wish now granted!
As you can see, a full shot of the iconic DC superhero in the Arrow spin-off has now been unveiled, albeit with a not so impressive lightning effect in the background. Other than that, it’s hard to find any real faults with the look they’ve created. It’s interesting though that he’s not quite as red as his comic book counterpart, a sign perhaps that Warner Bros. want a way for fans to distinguish this version of the character from the one they apparently intend to introduce in Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League! »

You have to be pretty quick to get a glimpse of the Fastest Man Alive, but The CW has slowed down time enough to capture a still photo of Grant Gustin in full costume as The Flash. Take a look here: The sleek, generally faithful costume was designed by Oscar winner and "Arrow" vet Colleen Atwood ("Alice in Wonderland," "Memoirs of a Geisha," "Chicago"). It's much less bulky and a darker red than the one sported by John Wesley Shipp in the short-lived 1990s TV series. “I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit,” said pilot director/executive producer David Nutter ("Arrow," "Game of Thrones"). The CW is hard at work on the pilot for the "The Flash," based on the DC Comics superhero, and it's »

Superhero costume design is some serious business. “I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit,” said pilot director/executive producer David Nutter (Arrow, Game of Thrones).
Atwood also created Stephen Amell‘s costume for Arrow, but she’s probably best known for her motion picture credits including Oscar®-winning costume design for Alice in Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha and Chicago, as well as seven additional Oscar® nominations for films such as Snow White and the Huntsman, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Sleepy Hollow, among others.

It's finally here, The Flash fans! Your first look at Grant Gustin in full Flash costume is above. We previously got a sneak peek at the Glee star in costume with a just a headshot, but this new photo has us so ready for the CW's take on the classic DC Comics character. "I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash's iconic suit," David Nutter, the director and executive producer of The CW's Flash pilot, said in a statement.

If you are a movie watcher of any intensity, chances are you have heard many musical scores from the great John Williams, who is most famous for his scores for the films of Steven Spielberg and for the Star Wars franchise. Many of his themes have become iconic in popular culture, from the majestic theme for Superman to the imposing Imperial March for Darth Vader.
Film music has a way of conjuring up powerful memories of the movies from which it originates. Someone listening to a longing French horn playing the Force theme and building to a powerful crescendo will instantly picture the binary sunset on Tatooine from Star Wars. The soaring flying theme from E.T. will summon an image of a bicycle flying across the moon, or a simple, but ominous, two note stab instantly inspires anxiety in people as they picture a shark fin protruding from the water. »

I know you. You woke up this morning desperate to know what Zhang Ziyi's Oscar ballot looked like. I am here, as ever, to improve your day with answers and actressness.
The Chinese superstar wasn't* nominated for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000) or Memoirs of a Geisha (2005, around the time AMPAS invited her to join) despite plentiful Us media attention. (I imagine teen and early 20something readers aren't super familiar with her since it's been 9 years since she was a regular fixture in the Us entertainment press???) The Grandmaster raised her profile a bit again and she obviously helped the costumes and cinematography to their Oscar nominations on account of good god she's photogenic.
She discussed her ballot with fans on her Weibo account though she was cleverly vague about whether she was talking votes or predictions (AMPAS members aren't supposed to reveal their actual votes).
She wrote [translated for Tfe - thanks Tony!]:
Quite a chaotic year. »

After making his debut on Arrow last year, Grant Gustin will suit up as The Flash in an upcoming pilot from The CW. The actor first appeared as Barry Allen in a two-parter which saw him gain his powers at the conclusion of that story, and it was recently revealed that plans to use an upcoming episode of Arrow as a backdoor pilot for the character had been scrapped in preference of The Flash getting his own solo debut outing.
While those working on the series promised that the iconic DC superhero would appear in his classic superhero costume, many fans were sceptical, especially after waiting a decade for Clark Kent to don his tights in Smallville (even Arrow’s Oliver Queen only recently donned his domino mask for the first time).
Well, as you can see below, they really weren’t lying! Ahead of the pilot episode which is »

The first pic of Grant Gustin from The Flash (production begins next week) has been released. The costume is designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood (Memoirs Of A Geisha, Alice In Wonderland, Chicago) and from this glimpse, it looks to be very … form fitting (but sadly, not spandex). Now I can’t wait to see the rest. But it does seem a shame to cover that face.

In the lead-up to the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2, HitFix will be bringing you the lowdown on all 24 Oscar categories with multiple entries each day. Take a few notes and bone up on the competition as we give you the edge in your office Oscar pool! Year after year, Best Original Score is probably the technical category where I'd most like to see a significantly different slate to the one the Academy has put together -- a certain cronyism and conservatism often keeps them from recognizing standout work in the category. This year, two films scored by relative newcomers face off again three established Academy favorites (two of them due an award by now, the third amply recognized), and it's the freshman nominees' work that is generating more discussion in the category than the others. Personally, I'd suggest that there's only one truly great score in the race this year, »

John Williams, the cinema's most widely and wildly celebrated composer, is a nominee again this year for The Book Thief (you can download some sheet music from the score here). He is 82 years old but in a delightfully senior twist, he is only the third oldest nominee (after June Squibb and Patricia Norris). IMDb's database for composers is very confusing so I can't share "number of original scores" but his feature film career, starting with Daddy-o (1958) and continuing on through the The Book Thief (2013), is prolific and highly regarded with more presumably to come since the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises are still alive and so is he.
