More From Ezra Miller On Finding Out He Was Going To Be The Flash

30 January 2015 11:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Considering Justice League is still years from release, Ezra Miller probably couldn't give too many details about his role as the Fastest Man Alive even if he was allowed to, but that didn't stop MTV's Josh Horowitz from quizzing him about it. Joined by Watchmen's Billy Crudup (who jokingly fishes for a role in the movie), Miller elaborates on finding out he'd be playing The Flash after director Zack Snyder called him while he was having a meal on holiday in Costa Rica. The The Perks Of Being A Wallflower actor says it came as a shock, but that he was "immediately all in," and also reveals that he was a comic book fan beforehand. So what about a bit of early preparation? “I’m not running yet,” Miller joked. “Right now, I’m still in the stretching phase. I want to stretch for a while.” Get More: Movie Trailers, »

Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

29 January 2015 3:59 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Is it possible to have a conversation about British culture - and its perceived idealism's in film - without mentioning James Bond? The valor, the silk-induced accent, the martini (shaken, not stirred, of course) - no matter what you draw on, one thing is certain... Mr. Bond oozes class, and has been representative of her Majesty's fine isle for as long as people took interest.

Skip forward to 2015 and things have changed. Mr. Bond - now in his eighth reincarnation - is evolving around his audience. Given the success and popularity of darker, more perturbed action heroes (such as Christopher Nolan's Batman, or Zack Snyder's Watchmen), so to has James bittered. Articulation and swagger are met in equal measure with substance abuse and insomnia, resulting in a spy that's as crazy as he is co-ordinated...and we love it!

And so, when the concept of the British spy »

Watch: 'The Avengers' Get The Zack Snyder Treatment In 'Watchmen' Trailer Mashup

27 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You know how Zack Snyder is known for directing hyper-stylized, green-screen and slo-mo heavy action films, most of which are based on comic books? Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't, but it’s an identifiable aesthetic. Well, YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has just re-cut the 2012 “The Avengers” trailer in the style of Snyder’s “Watchmen,” because the end result is surprisingly awesome. Unusual Suspect captured the look, feel and sound of a Snyder blockbuster perfectly, making “The Avengers” come across as a much darker, somber film intended as an, ahem, more mature viewing experience. Even if you hated “Watchmen,” we think props are due Unusual Suspect. Fun side fact: The domestic box office numbers for Snyder’s three biggest graphic novel/comic book adaptations to date don’t quite add up to the U.S. returns on “The Avengers” alone. “Watchmen” netted just over $107M domestic and didn »

Snyder Meets Marvel in 'Watchmen' vs. 'Avengers' Trailer Mashup

27 January 2015 11:05 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As much as I haven't necessarily enjoyed Marvel's movies as of late and the same goes for a relatively lackluster appeal to Zack Snyder's latest output of films, I have to admit to watching this mashup, giving Joss Whedon's The Avengers the Snyder visual touch, and actually thinking it works quite well. Then again, I'm not convinced it's all about the music. In the end, the Smashing Pumpkins' "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" is what made that Watchmen trailer as it is still an immensely watchable trailer even today, long after the bad taste of the film has left us. Check out the mash-up below. via The Playlist yt id="DYYlYnT1CZg" width="500" »

Watchmen Style Trailer for The Avengers

26 January 2015 6:15 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Unusual Suspect is back with another cool trailer mashup for your viewing enjoyment. This one combines footage from the Marvel films like The Avengers with the tone and music from Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. I guess this is the closest thing we’ll ever see to a look at what a Snyder-directed Marvel movie might feel like. It kind of gives the Marvel films a darker, grittier vibe. Check it out!

24 January 2015 2:12 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron approaching fast, fans can't seem to get enough of their favorite Marvel superheroes. Ever since the arrival of its trailer in October of last year, the worldwide web has gone bonkers for everything and anything Avengers, creating knockoffs, remakes, mashups and spoofs of Cap, Stark, Hulk, Widow and the rest of the gang. Arguably, The Avengers franchise has inspired more fan-made internet material than any other film series in history. Right now, we're going to draw attention to a newly-surfaced throwback mock trailer of The Avengers done in the style of Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Check it out below. The mashup trailer, posted by The Unusual Suspect, features the Smashing Pumpkins track "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning," which you may recognize from the original Watchmen trailer from about half a decade ago (it seems so long ago).

Video: Watch The Avengers Cut In The Style Of Zack Snyder's Watchmen Trailer

24 January 2015 6:02 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last week, we shared a very impressive Star Wars/Age Of Ultron trailer from YouTube editor, The Unusual Suspect. It seems he's been up to his old tricks again, delivering another entertaining little mash-up. This time, he turns his focus on Joss Whedon's original Avengers movie and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. The video features footage from Marvel's 2012's smash hit, re-cut in the style of Snyder's epic trailer - arguably one of the best Cbm teasers of all time. Check it out below: Perhaps what's most impressive here is the way he manages to seemlessly blend together two movies with such contrasting tones. It's also always great to hear that Smashing Pumpkins theme again. The Unusual Suspect has been making waves for some time now. If you haven't already, I'd recommend you check out some of his other works over on his channel. What did you guys think? Are »

Model and Actor Plitt, Killed in Train Accident, Was Original 'Body' of Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan

21 January 2015 5:38 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fitness model Greg Plitt killed in train accident: Plitt was the 'body' of Dr. Manhattan in 'Watchmen' movie Fitness model Greg Plitt, best known for adorning countless fitness magazine covers and for his participation on the reality TV show Work Out, was killed by a passenger train while being videotaped last Saturday afternoon, January 17, 2015, in Burbank, about 20 kilometers northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Authorities are now trying to figure out how Plitt and his two-person crew were able to access a restricted area – without a filming permit – and what exactly they were doing there. Online tabloids claim to have the answer, asserting that Greg Plitt's death was the result of a failed thrill-seeking stunt. The athletic Plitt, who had previously shot at least one workout video on a train track, was purportedly trying to outrun the passenger train, but tripped and fell on the tracks. Police have »

1. Guardians of the Galaxy What more can I say? James Gunn did an fantastic job with this film. All of the performances were great. The visual effects were amazing. The score and the soundtrack were iconic. And it was a fun experience at the theater. 2. Marvel's The Avengers/Watchmen It is a tie between these legendary films. The former had amazing performances and changed cinema forever. It was also a fun experience at the theater. Joss Whedon brought together all of these heros. The latter was wonderfully directed by Zack Snyder. It is still his best film. It talked about complex issues, such as nuclear war and morality. At what cost would you save the world? 3. The Dark Knight/X-Men: Days of Future Past Another tie for me. The former had extraordinary acting, especially from Heath Ledger's Iconic performance as the Joker. It talked about complex issues, such as »

'Batman v Superman' Is Cinematic History Says Henry Cavill

17 January 2015 11:32 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When your movie is called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it better be something quite special, and beyond spectacular. These are not just two of DC Comics biggest superhero characters, but arguable the most iconic crime fighting warriors to exist in any medium. There is a lot of pressure for this to be one of the greatest movies ever made in the genre. In a recent interview, Henry Cavill promises just that, taking it one step further by claiming it as one for the record books. Speaking with The Daily Mail Online, the actor states:

"It's Zack Snyder so it's going to be a visual spectacle and it's cinematic history. We're doing Batman and we're doing Superman and it's all happening at the same time so fingers crossed it turns out to be as exciting as I think it is."

If we're to believe the constant stream of rumors on the Internet, »

The picture starred Patrick Wilson as Dan Dreiberg, who takes up the crime-fighting mantle of his idol, the Nite Owl.

Watch: Patton Oswalt and Patrick Wilson Discuss the Slavishness of Zack Snyder's 'Watchmen'

14 January 2015 1:30 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In a world flooded with comic book adaptations, one of the more hotly debated films in recent history is Zack Snyder's take on the classic Alan Moore graphic novel Watchmen. Some love it. Some hate it. Mec I sway heavily in the direction of hate. I don't necessarily hate it, but I do see it as a missed opportunity. Snyder seemed to be far more concerned with recreating images from the source than building in a story. That translation is exactly the topic of this brief discussion between comedian and comic book/film nerd Patton Oswalt and Night Owl himself Patrick Wilson. The slavishness of the adaptation is something the two have very different takes on. Oswalt thinks it hurts. Wilson thinks it helps, and I don't think he is just saying that because he was in the movie. What I like about this is the two have differing opinions on the film, »
