"Amazing Spider-Man 2" Aims For A Billion

3 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's a lot of pressure on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to perform well. Just how well though? You may be surprised.

Variety reports that Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal has set a goal of a $1 billion worldwide box-office for the sequel.

The figure isn't as outlandish as you might expect. 2012's first film raked in $752 million, while the three previous Sam Raimi films clocked in between $783 million to $890 million.

Even so, only four comic book movies have grossed over $1 billion worldwide - "The Avengers," "Iron Man 3," "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises".

Sony has reportedly bet big on the film with more than $400 million in production and worldwide marketing costs riding on the movie. It is paying off though with tracking figures suggesting the film is headed for a $100 million opening weekend in the United States - a big jump up on the $62 million opening weekend of the first film. »

Actors Turn Directors for Cannes 2014

4 hours ago | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut.  The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »

Snyder Talks Batman, Superman, Marvel, & More

4 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Forbes has conducted an extremely thorough interview with director Zack Snyder. In it, he covers just about everything there is to discuss about Batman vs Superman. From how Batman came to be involved in the film, to his views on the characters, to the costumes, his philosophies, and more, Snyder speaks quite candidly.

Read on to see what Snyder has in mind for his upcoming DC epic. But keep in mind that some of this sounds cooler than it actually is, since Snyder is prone to talking about elements in his films that don’t actually exist- except for maybe in his head.

Here’s how Batman came to be involved in the sequel to Man of Steel, according to Snyder. Though I think interviewer Mark Hughes’s theory from a few months ago was also a likely factor, as well.

“[...]after Man of Steel finished and we started talking »

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Interstellar

9 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

Director Christopher Nolan is known for the secrecy that surrounds the production of his films. Think locked rooms, surreptitiously delivered scripts, each page watermarked with the name of the actor, and endings that are verbally delivered. In fact, during the filming of the final scene from The Dark Knight Rises (Spoiler), Christian Bale was on set in order to prevent leaks about the ending. Although, considering the recent escapade surrounding the Quentin Tarantino Hateful Eight leak, one can never be too careful. Nolan has been as evasive as ever about Interstellar, which will be his first film since the end of The Dark Knight Trilogy in 2012. But, since the release of the teaser trailer in December, hints about the up coming science fiction picture are slowly beginning to emerge.

“We have always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.” So begins the teaser to Interstellar. What follows is »

From Superfan to Supervillain

16 April 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the comic book movie trend of the superfan becoming the supervillain….

Comic book adaptations are often accused of being unoriginal. These movies are ‘On the rails’ as they say. A predetermined path of familiar tropes and storytelling techniques that very rarely deviate from the familiar. The glut of superhero themed movies has rapidly accelerated some of these redundancies making them feel glaringly obvious. While I was watching the latest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 I noticed a familiar theme; the superfan that becomes a supervillain.

Jamie Foxx’s Electro starts off as a total geek with glasses and a terrible comb over. He starts off as Spider-Man’s biggest fan but eventually transforms into the super powered villain who wants to destroy Spider-Man. The sycophantic idol becomes the sociopathic monster obsessed with destroying his one time idol. It sounds familiar, and it should. There have been »

'Transcendence' (2014) Movie Review

16 April 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The idea behind Transcendence is big, ambitious and nearly impossible to pull off in a two hour feature film. For a logic-based narrative such as this one it becomes troubling when it ends up with logic flaws of its own, largely as a result of the film's running time as it would take nearly four hours or one thousand pages to properly set this story up so critical audiences wouldn't ask questions such as, "Why hasn't the government noticed this yetc" However, it's the underlying fabric of this story, the questions it poses about our future, that I found compelling, even if the characters and scenarios involved are a little hokey and ridiculous. Transcendence takes a look at "what's next" for humanity, with the increasing influence of technology in our lives, and how it will be used in the future, driving the narrative. Looking into the idea of what's next »

‘Transcendence’ Review: Johnny Depp Is a Ghost in the Machine in This Bug-Riddled Techno-Thriller (Video)

15 April 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Transcendence,” the directorial debut of cinematographer Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight”) is a sleek, smart techno-thriller loaded with interesting ideas — until it stops being any of those things. Like a snazzy new laptop that immediately heats up and stops working, this exploration of our reliance upon technology — and how far mankind will subsume itself to its creations — seems great when it's right out of the box. But by the end of two hours, you'll find yourself wishing that first-time screenwriter Jack Paglen had taken his creation to a Genius Bar for a thorough de-fragging.

Hans Zimmer Is Back For "Batman vs. Superman"

15 April 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He's taken some time to decide, but "The Dark Knight" trilogy and "Man of Steel" composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed he will provide the score for Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman Vs. Superman".

Speaking with Digital Spy, he says he will start crafting music for the project once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic "Interstellar":

"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack (Snyder) is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."

Zimmer says the biggest challenge, and the one that kept him undecided about committing to the project for such a long time, was that he had to come up with a completely new Batman theme for Ben Affleck's Caped Crusader:

Creepy Vampire-Like Version of Frank Miller's Dark Knight

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Christian Ronchi's version of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight looks like a creepy vampire Batman. This version of the classic superhero is pretty terrifying, and he'd definitely scare the shit out of the criminals of Gotham. I imagine the people of the city would be scared to death to leave their homes with this thing out on the streets! He looks mean as hell.

Hans Zimmer Confirms His Return as 'Batman Vs. Superman' Composer

15 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After months of speculation, Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer has confirmed that he will return to provide the score for its sequel, Batman Vs. Superman. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview with Digital Spy, where he revealed that he will start crafting music for the DC Comics superhero follow-up once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.

"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack (Snyder) is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas."

Back in September, the composer revealed that he was undecided about taking on this sequel, since he will have to come up with a new Batman theme, after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He explained »

Hans Zimmer Set to Compose the Score for 'Batman vs. Superman'?

15 April 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment holding firm on their Batman vs. Superman release date of May 6th, 2016 to open against Disney and Marvel's Captain America 3, all we can do is wait and see what each of the superhero films do as they move through development and closer to production. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel already has a pretty full cast with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Superman and Batman, not to mention Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but now we have another name added to the behind-the-scenes roster with Hans Zimmer confirmed to compose the score. Zimmer was previously unsure if he should return to score the film that will see the first big screen combination of Batman and Superman, mostly because of his work on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight franchise. Zimmer told Vulture: "Honestly, I’m just »

Hans Zimmer Returning to Score 'Batman vs. Superman'

15 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There was some doubt Hans Zimmer might not return to score Batman vs. Superman. In fact, Zimmer was leading the charge telling Vulture, "Honestly, I'm just sort of grappling with that right now... Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don't want to go and take what I did with Christopher Nolan and just plonk it into another movie. There isn't one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it." The biggest concern is clearly retreading the same territory he's already traveled on Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy saying, "I wouldn't want to put the ideas I used in the Chris Nolan Batman movies into a Superman movie. It just wouldn't feel right." Well, I guess he's comes to grips with the situation as he confirms with Digital Spy that he will return adding, "We've already had a couple of chats, »

Batman vs Superman Movie: 10 Cameos We Hope To See

15 April 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Next to the impending Star Wars Episode VII, there is no movie production as obsessively followed and keenly scrutinised as Batman vs. Superman, which is due for release on May 6, 2016. What do we know so far?

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is once again helming, it will take many narrative cues from the comic The Dark Knight Returns, Ben Affleck is playing Batman, Gal Godot is playing Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons has snagged the role of Alfred Pennyworth.

Most of the news coming out of the movie’s camp so far has been pretty divisive to say the least, and with it being just a matter of time before high-profile shoots begin and images begin to leak out of Affleck’s new Batsuit, it’s time to consider what we actually want to see show up in this movie. Which characters, »

Hans Zimmer to Score Batman Vs. Superman

15 April 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though director Zack Snyder’s Superman redo Man of Steel proved to be a slightly divisive film, one of the highlights that most can agree on is composer Hans Zimmer’s score.  Following in the footsteps of John Williams’ iconic Superman theme was no easy task, but Zimmer succeeded in crafting something wholly separate from the 1978 classic that helped reinvent Superman for our modern age.  It also marked a shift for Snyder, who had collaborated with composer Tyler Bates on all of his previous features save for Legend of the Guardians. As Snyder is knee-deep in pre-production on his Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), many have been wondering whether Zimmer would return.  As Zimmer already reinvented the Batman character less than a decade ago with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, we were curious to see if he’d be up for the challenge of »

Hans Zimmer Says He's Scoring Batman vs. Superman

15 April 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Hans Zimmer is a pretty hot commodity right now in terms of musical composition, being attached to a number of high profile film projects; most recently The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  He's behind all of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, so many assumed he'd be returning to score Batman vs. Superman.  In a recent interview, Zimmer all but confirms he's returning and expresses his fears about coming up with a new theme for the caped crusader.  

I like Hans Zimmer...I like him a lot.  I think he does great work (though it may not be exactly subtle) and felt that Man of Steel benefited greatly from his work.  To be entirely honest, soundtracks on films have never been all that important to me.  Music hasn't ever been my "thing" especially since I'm deaf in one ear, but Zimmer's soundtracks always manage to catch my attention. »

After scoring all three films in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy (along with James Newton Howard), composer Hans Zimmer is gearing up to return to the DC superhero world with Batman Vs Superman. Zimmer, who is currently at work on Nolan's next outing, Interstellar, just supplied the score for The Amazing Spider-man 2, but has his sights clearly set on bringing the noise to Zack Snyder's next entry in the Man Of Steel franchise (or is it the Justice League franchise? Who knows...), »
