Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) – The Review

1 hour ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A thing is a thing, not what is said of that thing.” That’s a message on a postcard displayed on the dressing room mirror of Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton) in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance). With that phrase in mind, I feel it’s best to simply say, “Go see the movie. Then we can talk about it.” I could leave this review at that considering the film brings into question the role of the critic when an actor, director, or artist puts their heart and soul on the line for his or her art. But just plainly urging you to see the movie is also counter-productive when there is so much love, effort, and ideas pulsating from this work of art. And it is just that. Birdman is a work of art. Don’t take my word for it though, go and see it for yourself. »

Jena Malone's Mystery Batman v Superman Role on This Week's Most Craved

12 hours ago | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Although we're still not certain who she's playing, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jena Malone is reuniting with Sucker Punch director Zach Snyder for a mystery role in the much-anticipated comic book showdown Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although it's far from confirmed, rumors have suggested that she might playing the Carrie Kelley Robin, Batman's sidekick from Frank Miller's epochal The Dark Knight Returns! We're sharing our thoughts on this week's Most Craved along with discussion about Eli Roth's just-announced plans to remake Cabin Fever with the same screenplay and the tremendous amount of nostalgia-driven franchises headed to television ("Full House," "Big," "Rush Hour," "Bachelor Party," and "Uncle Buck" just to name a few). »

Christian Bale Confirmed To Play Steve Jobs In Danny Boyle’s Untitled Biopic

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aaron Sorkin has kicked rumors and speculation to the curb and confirmed that Christian Bale will indeed play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s as-yet-untitled biopic.

News comes via Bloomberg, where The West Wing scribe formally confirmed Bale’s involvement in the film, stating that The Dark Knight is “gonna crush it” as the late visionary.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. It’s an extremely difficult part and he’s gonna crush it. There was a meeting. The role is an extremely difficult role; he has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or frame that he’s not in.”

While the casting of Bale is hardly surprising, early reports indicated that he was one of the many actors in contention for the role, »

Avengers: Age of Ultron official trailer will make you weep with its sheer beauty

14 hours ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was reportedly leaked on the internet, in poor quality, resulting in Marvel Studios releasing the official version early. It was originally scheduled to debut with Marvel's Agents of Shield, which would have been obvious brand synergy, as well as casting a spotlight on the awesomeness of that show. (Bad Rising Tide! Pop culture reference, sorry.)

But the official trailer is here now, and it's stunning in its melancholy beauty. This is somewhat atypical for a superhero blockbuster, though increasingly common in recent years (c.f. Iron Man 3, The Dark Knight trilogy). With the trailer for The Avengers, director Joss Whedon seemed to be taking after the epitome of blockbuster bombast, Michael Bay (Transformers); whereas with the trailer for the follow-up, Avengers: Age of Ultron, he seems to be taking after the master of visual and emotional film-making poetry, Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers »

The movie stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper, an astronaut seeking new habitats in space as humanity chokes on a dying earth. »

Outrage Over Superhero Casting

22 October 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics recently released their full slate of upcoming comic book movies through the year 2020. Outside of Justice League and Wonder Woman, two other announcements really stood out. The Flash and Aquaman will be getting their own films in 2018. With The Flash TV show just premiering to great numbers it makes sense to bring that character to the cineplexes. Well DC has other ideas about who will be playing The Flash.

Along with the announcement of the film, it was announced that The Flash would be played by Ezra Miller. The young actor is best known for his roles in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Critics have praised his performance in both films and he is looking like a standout star of this generation. Well that wasn’t enough for comic book fans.

Ezra Miller as The Flash? »

Chris Nolan's Interstellar Expected To Beat Batman Begins Opening

22 October 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Variety, early tracking of Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic, Interstellar, puts the film on course for a $50M debut when it opens in theaters next month. Though, it will face some stiff competition from Disney's Big Hero 6, which opens during the same weekend. Interstellar cost $165M to create, coming in $10M under budget. A $50M opening would make Interstellar the fourth best opening for a Christopher Nolan-directed film. The Dark Knight Rises opened with $160M in 2012, The Dark Knight opened with $158M in 2008, Inception had a $68M debut and 2005's Batman Begins pulled in $48M in its opening frame. Update! The Hollywood Reporter says both, Interstellar and Big Hero 6, could open closer to $60M. How much do you think Nolan's film will make in its opening weekend?

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

The release of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar is finally within arm’s reach, and as the date looms closer we’re starting to hear much more from Nolan himself and his impressive cast about how the project came together, the experience of making it, and the extent to which Nolan grounded the space-centered film in reality.  All of this and more is touched on during a lengthy roundtable interview with Nolan, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, and Anne Hathaway in the latest issue of THR, and we’ve taken the liberty of gathering up some of the highlights from the fascinating and somewhat revealing conversation.

‘Interstellar’ Eyes $50 Million-Plus Launch at Box Office

22 October 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The opening of Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” is still almost three weeks away, but tickets for the space adventure are going fast.

Like all of Nolan’s projects, “Interstellar” remains cloaked in secrecy. Its plot is a mystery besides a few clues that it will center on an ecological cataclysm on earth and wormholes. It’s not a sequel, it’s not based on a young adult bestseller or a toy. Instead, it’s a wholly original concept.

After the success of “The Dark Knight” films and “Inception,” Nolan has become a brand in and of himself and “Interstellar” is performing as well as popular franchise pictures.

The picture is looking at a debut of more than $50 million based on early tracking and that number could rise as reviews roll in, television commercials become ubiquitous and word-of-mouth increases. An opening in the range of “Gravity’s” $55.8 million seems achievable, even »

Does the Dark Direction is a Good Thing for DC Movies?

22 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Marvel movies are obviously much more lighter than the WB/DC movies. After all, Avengers had bunch of jokes and funny stuff, while Man of Steel was the movie where Superman broke Zod’s neck. Many people say that the DC movies are so dark gritty, but is that a bad thing? Let’s face it, two of the best and most influential comic-book movies in the last 15 years were Batman Begins and the Dark Knight. Both of these movies changed the game for comic-book movies. Iron Man was so good because it some queues from Batman Begins, as Marvel did a much serious and realistic version of Iron Man. Many people will say that the first X-Men movies were pretty realistic and dark, but it was only after the Batman Begins movies that Hollywood started to take comic-book movies much more serious. And I think we can all »

Keanu Reeves has revealed that he's always wanted to play a high-profile superhero.

The Matrix star said that he has never been offered the chance to be a specific hero on screen, but that he would have loved to get the chance to play Batman or Wolverine.

Speaking about his interest in comic book movies in general, he said: "I love the graphic novel form. I like how it's been translated.

"I certainly think it's impactful, »

Fox Picks Up Inception-Like Graphic Novel Doctors, David Goyer Attached To Produce

22 October 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Dash Shaw’s — the creative mind behind comedy-drama, Bottomless Belly Button — independent graphic novel Doctors, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sources tell us that David Goyer is also on board to produce the project alongside his production company, Phantom Four.

In terms of the source material itself, Doctors follows a group of doctors (who would’ve thought?) who are as tech-savvy as they are medically brilliant. One day, the medical experts find themselves in possession of a technology that allows them to temporarily assimilate their own subconscious with that of the recently deceased and bring them back to the land of the living for a short period of time. However, a spanner is tossed in the works when the titular group come across a young mother who, despite her daughter’s pleas, doesn’t want to come back.

It’s an interesting premise, »

The Flash Videos Introduce New Character, Develop Old Characters

21 October 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Do you guys love The Flash? I love The Flash. I have been waiting since Comic-Con to tell you how much I love The Flash. I have brooding emo superhero fatigue, and The Flash is such a breath of fresh air. I’m not saying there isn’t a place on the superhero shelf for The Dark Knight, because obviously there is. The Dark Knight is the greatest. But lately tortured seems to be the default for superhero movies, and The Flash is so optimistic. It just makes me happy to watch it. End rant.

The Flash airs on Tuesday nights, so a new episode is almost here, but to bring a little joy to your life before then, you can check out these swell videos. The first features the introduction of Ronnie Raymond, Caitlin Snow’s fiancé who died in the thunderstorm that supercharged Barry. Although this scene is a flashback, »
