'Cyborg' Star Talks 'Justice League' and 'Batman v Superman'

21 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.

The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie. »

DC's 'Cyborg,' Ray Fisher, didn't know he was getting his own movie

21 October 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Nobody told Ray Fisher the plan. The 27-year-old had no idea he was set to explode into Hollywood movie stardom, top-lining as the title character in a Cyborg movie set for release in 2020. In fact, producers called the New Jersey-born theater actor on Oct. 15 with the heads-up only hours before Warner Bros. publicly revealed its slate of mega-budget superhero movies tied to the DC Cinematic Universe—Wonder Woman, The Justice League, Suicide Squad, and Shazam among them. “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” says Fisher, who was hired in »

Warner Bros. Eyeing Gosling, Hardy, Robbie, and Smith for 'Suicide Squad'

16 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Yesterday, Warner Bros. announced a massive slate of DC Comics films set for release between now and 2020. Of the announced titles, the one that caught my eye the most was Suicide Squad, a movie that will follow a team of incarcerated super-villains who undertake high-risk black ops missions on behalf of the United States government in exchange for reduced prison terms. It sounds a little like The A-Team, though not entirely the same of course. I had never heard of the property before yesterday, which makes sense given I was a card collector -- basketball, not Pokemon -- during my formative years instead of being a comic book junkie like several of my friends. However, the description above makes me curious about the project, especially since it will be directed by David Ayer (Fury). Warner Bros.' announcement gave no inclination as to who might be cast in the film, »

Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie And Tom Hardy Wanted For Suicide Squad

15 October 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to THR, Warner Brothers is already looking at actors to fill the roles in their recently-announced Suicide Squad film, which will be helmed by Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer. The studio is reportedly looking to fill the film with A-list talent, and have already approached Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy.

Despite the fact that the project is still in early development, the actors are “fielding offers” as we speak as the studio is “making overtures for what is to be an A-list ensemble piece filled with colorful anti-heroes.” Yep, sounds like the Suicide Squad!

Gosling is also eying the lead in Dean Parisot’s Houdini, while Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) is currently enjoying a nice, busy schedule with high-profile projects like David Yate’s Tarzan and the Ghost in the Shell adaptation. Whether or not either of them will »

Will Smith is like a grifting Hitch in first 'Focus' trailer

10 October 2014 5:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At 46, after 20 years in the business, Will Smith is still the coolest guy in the room. Say that his recent output reflects a former heavyweight star waning into obscurity and I'll show you a man who transcends the biggest duds. He still made those stuffy men in black look good in "MIB3," wound up overshadowing his kid successor as Cypher Raige in "After Earth," and joined Godly ranks as a wickedly funny Devil in mystifying "Winter's Tale." (And for fact-checkers: He only played the creation of the gods in "Hancock.") Smith isn't versatile, but he's reliable. The trailer for "Focus," the actor's latest, puts a darker spin on that established cool, Smith playing a confidence man in the thick of conspiracy. The man knows confidence. From "I Love You Philip Morris" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love." writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, "Focus" stars Smith as Nicky, a top-of-his-game grifter and »

Netflix, Weinstein Co. Bust Windows With ‘Crouching Tiger’ Sequel Day-and-Date Release

29 September 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has reached a deal with The Weinstein Co. for its first original movie — a sequel to Ang Lee’s 2000 martial arts pic “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” — set to hit IMAX theaters and the streaming-video service simultaneously next summer.

The film, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend,” is slated for a Aug. 28, 2015, debut. Produced by Weinstein Co., the movie is the first of several major films to premiere day-and-date both on the Svod service (at no extra charge) and in select IMAX theaters worldwide. Financial terms of the pact were not disclosed.

Netflix has been eyeing day-and-date releases of movies, as chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a keynote last year at the Film Independent Forum in Los Angeles. The launch of the movie is likely to catch the ire of exhibitors — who have in the past viewed digital encroachment on theatrical windows as a threat.

Oscar-winning 'Apollo 13' sound mixer set for career achievement honor

29 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether you knew it or not, you've been listening to sound mixer David Macmillan's work for years. There's early stuff, like "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "Birdy" and "SpaceCamp" (yes!). There's recent stuff like "Twilight," "Hancock" and "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin." And there's the Oscar-winning stuff scattered throughout, like "The Right Stuff," "Speed" and "Apollo 13." The guy is a legend in the field, so of course he's a great fit for the Cinema Audio Society's (Cas) Career Achievement Award. Macmillan began his career over half a century ago as an apprentice in Canadian television before eventually connecting with Francis Ford Coppola. The "Godfather" director was in the process of building American Zoetrope in San Francisco and hired Macmillan to run the company's mixing facility. From there, his career took off. He has more than 80 feature films to his credit, the three aforementioned Oscars (he won every time he was nominated), collaborations with Oliver Stone, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Jason Bateman talks Tiff'sThis Is Where I Leave You

3 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ah, family. It’s the cement of civilization, the source of many people’s most reliable love, and the folks who have to take you in when no one else will.

And if families weren’t so serioulsy screwed up, Jason Bateman might not have a career.

The actor, who got his start as a child on such family-oriented series as "Little House on the Prairie," "Silver Spoons" and "Valerie," owes much of his adult success to playing Michael Bluth on the hit TV series "Arrested Development."  Bluth was one of the “sane, conservative, everyman, straight men that I always play,” says the 45-year-old actor. Often those straight men of his exist within a family of lunatics.

Since "Arrested Development," Bateman has played similar roles in films as diverse as Hancock, Juno, Couples Retreat, The Change-Up, The Switch and even the slapsticky Identity Thief, all of which placed him in some family-related, »

First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Tim Key Q&A as it happened

Enigmatically droll comedian Tim Key is in Edinburgh with his show Single White Slut, and hes answered your questions from what it was like being trussed in tinfoil for the Alan Partridge movie to considering wrestling with Shaun Murphy on a snooker table onstage in Sheffield

And with that, Tim heads off into the Fringe. His show Single White Slut is at the Grand until Monday 25 August thanks to him and to everyone who asked questions.

2.19pm BST

Gingification asks:

If I could only watch one show at the fringe this year with slut in the title, which show should it be?

One with that in the title would be Single White Slut. 9.40 at The Grand. One without would be Monsieur Butterfly, by Alex Horne. I watched it last night and it blew my mind. He's at 8.10, so we don't clash.
