Can We Give The DC Extended Universe A Little Credit?

24 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

"The DC Extended Universe is in trouble." That’s a lot of the narrative surrounding this universe from Warner Bros that began with Man of Steel in 2012 and continued in 2016 with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Frankly, a lot of fans don’t seem to like these movies, and some have seen the last two films on the slate as a desperate attempt to catch up to Marvel’s own Cinematic Universe before they’ve earned their place alongside them.

But is that really the case? Do they really deserve all the naysayers surrounding them these days?

We believe the answer is twofold, as in "yes, and no."

First, let’s start by getting the negative press out of the way. The Flash lost two directors in a year, and The Batman lost Affleck at its helm, seeming to imply a lack of faith in the project. Meanwhile, they »

What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey

13 February 2017 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment

I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone »

Behind-the-scenes images of The Dark Knight’s warehouse fight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have come in for heavy criticism in some quarters, it’s fair to say that the big warehouse showdown between The Dark Knight and Anatoli Knyazev’s goons is one of – if not the – best Batman fight scenes ever put to film, and thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we’ve got a look at some behind the scenes images from the production of said sequence…

“The script was still being worked on when we came in, and that’s generally earlier than a lot of directors have us come in, but Zack likes to really let it flow from early R&D,” said second unit director Damon Caro with regards to the conception and construction of the scene. “Half the time it’s like, ‘try this, try that,’ because there are a »

Films that led to other films being cancelled

9 February 2017 2:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 15, 2017

Had Tomorrowland been a hit, we might have had a Tron sequel. We look at movies whose fate had a knock-on effect on other films...

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback.  In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.

The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

Zack Snyder shares Batman v Superman before-and-after VFX video

8 February 2017 3:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has shared a twelve minute video detailing the visual effects work on last year’s DC blockbuster, giving us a behind-the-scenes peek at the incredible VFX work on the film with side-by-side comparison shots.

“This is a look behind the curtain and what my amazing VFX team is able to achieve,” said Snyder on Twitter. “They are simply amazing.”

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Militia: Jack Huston, Jeffrey Dean Morgan And Ralph Ineson Join Black List Script Production

7 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Henry Dunham's Black List script from 2015, Militia, is moving forward according to a report over at Deadline. Jack Huston, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Ralph Ineson are attached to the project.    Described as an intense character study mixed with suspense and violence, Militia is said to be in the vein of Heat, The Usual Suspects and Glengarry Glen Ross. The story picks up after a shooting at a police funeral by a suspected militia member. A recluse ex-cop and fellow militia man must then interrogate the suspected gunman in his own militia, before copycat attacks start a nationwide war.   Huston (Ben Hur, Boardwalk Empire) is attached as “Gannon,” Morgan (The Walking Dead, Watchmen) as “Olsen” and Ineson (The Witch) as “Morris.”   (Henry...

Newswire: A surprising number of people want Zack Snyder to direct The Batman

3 February 2017 11:20 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Rumors and questions are currently circling around Warner Bros.The Batman, after star Ben Affleck dropped out of the director’s chair earlier this week in order to focus on his performance, and also on not getting asked questions about directing The Batman all the goddamn time. Names on the shortlist to replace him are rumored to include Matt Reeves, from the recent Planet Of The Apes franchise, and Captain Fantastic director Matt Ross. Now, though, there’s a petition circulating to hand the job to the one man who really understands this relentlessly grim, God-bleeding version of The Dark Knight: Zack Snyder.

Created by ScreenGeek writer Jennifer Huneycutt, the petition lauds Snyder for his refusal to inflict dreaded “artistic license” on rigorously faithful comic book adaptations like 300 or Watchmen, while praising him for his “beautifully dark Dceu.” (We’d argue that decisions like making Pa Kent commit suicide-by-tornado »

3 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Well, it’s happened, folks. Pretty much whenever some big piece of comic book movie news drops, if you are to mosey on over to Change.org, there’s a good chance you’ll see a petition in place, crying out for some director to be hired, some actor to be brought on board, or some action to be taken. As I’m sure you’ll well aware, this past Monday, Ben Affleck officially dropped out as director of The Batman

This bit of news came to the chagrin of fanboys worldwide (this one included), who would have loved to see a film noir detective story starring Batman and helmed by Ben Affleck. Since the news hit, there have been countless articles out there running down some of the best options in Hollywood this film has going for it.

One fan in particular has the perfect man to take on the job: Zack Snyder. »

Cats and Dogs, Living Together: DC Fans Launch Petition For Zack Snyder to Direct ‘The Batman’

3 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I like Zack Snyder. That needs to be said first. His Dawn of the Dead remake is a superbly constructed, savvy joy. 300 is so much more interesting and beautiful than you remember. Watchmen is flawed but audacious, tackling un-adabtable source material with raw nerve and bravery. Sucker Punch is a disaster, but it’s the kind […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice production designer Patrick Tatopoulos has shared a piece of concept art from the DC blockbuster showing his design for the Bat-creature which attacks Bruce Wayne during his nightmare sequence. Take a look here…

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

8 Theories About How Watchmen Fits Into The DC Rebirth Universe

2 February 2017 5:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DC Comics received a lot of flak for Before Watchmen, a run of limited series books which filled in some of the blanks in the histories of those characters without the involvement of creator Alan Moore. However, the reaction to the reveal that the characters are now part of the DC Universe thanks to DC Rebirth has generated an awful lot of excitement amongst fans – and it’s not hard to see why.

While the events of Watchmen didn’t take place in the world of Batman and Superman, it appears as if Dr. Manhattan had something to do with The New 52 reboot, while there have also been numerous references to the likes of the Comedian and Ozymandias in recent months, which will soon be investigated by Batman and the Flash.

So, with all of that in mind, how exactly will Watchmen fit into the DC Universe moving forward? For now, »

Fans Petition for Zack Snyder to Direct The Batman

2 February 2017 4:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Should Batman V Superman and Justice League director Zack Snyder direct The Batman? Some DC fans sure think so. A new petition was launched today on change.org, and it's asking for just that. As you can see, DC fanatic and film enthusiast Jennifer Huneycutt has a perfectly good case for why Snyder should return, despite a majority of fans certainly thinking other wise.

As most probably know already, Ben Affleck stepped down from directing The Batman this past Tuesday. He is staying attached to the project as an executive producer and co-writer. He decided to step away from the director's chair so that he could fully focus on his performance as Batman. And it has since been revealed that Justice League writer Chris Terrio has recently turned in a rewrite of The Batman script.

It's unclear just how good of a working relationship Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck have at this point. »

New Petition Wants Zack Snyder To Direct The Batman

2 February 2017 3:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. sent shockwaves through the internet when they announced that Ben Affleck would no longer direct The Batman. It wasn’t terribly surprising, given how hesitant he’s been about taking on the job, but everyone assumed that he’d be able to work out his differences with the studio and come to an agreement that he felt comfortable with. It turns out though that Big Ben just couldn’t get on board with the script and so, he pulled out of the director’s chair.

Now, the search is on to find a replacement and fanboys have been extremely vocal in regards to both who they do and don’t want to see take the job. We’ve heard that names like Matt Reeves and George Miller are being eyed, among others, but Warner Bros. still hasn’t made an official announcement, and may not for some time. »
