Warner Bros. and DC still has a couple of open slots on its impending release slate heading out of this decade. It has now been confirmed that Nightwing is one of those movies. And the live-action adventure will be directed by none other than Chris McKay, the filmmaker behind this month's hugely successful animated comedy The Lego Batman Movie.
Nightwing will revolve around the DC character of Dick Grayson, also known as Robin, and perhaps the best known member of the Batman family outside of Bruce Wayne. The movie will tie directly into The Batman, which was confirmed earlier today to still be moving forward with Cloverfield and Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves at the helm.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris McKay is currently in negotiations for the standalone DC movie, with The Accountant screenwriter Bill Dubuque tackling the script. In DC lore, Dick Grayson is the original Robin. »
Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.
In an effort to do right where the Academy effed up, I give you the Travers Awards – my own personal version of the Alt-Oscars. (For those of you playing along at home, the award is an engraved image of a critic screaming.) It's one last chance to single out the »

The best sound editing category is going to be tough to call at this year’s Oscars, but the race is boiling down to Hacksaw Ridge versus La La Land. While we won’t know who won the Academy’s favor until Sunday, we already know the Motion Picture Sound Editors have honored these two films — among others — at their annual Golden Reel Awards. How often does this society of sound editors predict the corresponding category at the Academy Awards? Let’s take a look and find out.
Nominated alongside Hacksaw Ridge and La La Land in the best sound editing category at this year’s Oscars are Arrival, Sully, and Deepwater Horizon. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg predicts that Damien Chazelle’s modern musical will take home the trophy by overtaking Mel Gibson’s big Hollywood return. »

Auralnauts, the comedic team who have previously riffed on the rest of the Star Wars series, The Dark Knight Returns, Terminator, and much more, have here done the public service of redoing A New Hope, only this time R2-D2 can talk. In hindsight, it is sort of surprising that George Lucas did not deem this one of the things he had planned to do but was unable to using the technology of 1977, as it performs the very Lucas-ian service of dissolving the film’s sci-fi allure in favor of literalism and lame banter. R2-D2 is not necessarily funny; the notion that he is comes from the unexpected reactions by C-3Po and others as they repeat his sarcastic asides or scoff at him.
About nine minutes in, though, the joke takes a turn, when Obi Wan Kenobi first shows up and acts like he has never met R2. “You »

Fantasia, for all its merits, isn't many people's favourite Disney film. But in the early 90s, it became the biggest selling VHS ever...
I don’t think I’m going out on much of a limb to suggest that we all have a favourite Disney animated movie. Mine is Beauty & The Beast, for an abundance of reasons, not least that it caught me off guard and I wasn’t really expecting the utter treat I got. Yours is likely different.
But also, for all its merits, there are few people, I’d suggest, who list Fantasia as their top choice. Sure, I believe lots of people admire it, and there are segments of the film that remain cherished: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice sequence is an obvious standout. It’s also bold, ambitious and full of beautiful work. Yet how many watch it on a loop? Furthermore, how »
But disappointed fanboys can at least take comfort in knowing that Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel is equally bummed that “Deadpool,” the 20th Century Fox tentpole starring Ryan Reynolds as a disfigured anti-hero, got snubbed by voters.
“I would have liked to have seen ‘Deadpool’ get nominated,” Kimmel said in this week’s Variety cover story, as he gears up for Sunday’s show. “I do think there’s a certain type of movie that’s not considered for awards. It’s a shame, because there’s nothing serious about the movies; they’re an escape.”
“I think comedies are also underappreciated,” Kimmel added. “There’s »

It has been nearly a decade since the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences expanded the number of nominations for best picture from five to a possible 10 films, in a move meant to inject more blockbusters into the Oscar mix and generate more excitement around the telecast. Whatever the intentions, the experiment in populism has yielded mixed results.
Popcorn adventures like “Avatar,” “Inception,” and “Toy Story 3” have been nominated for best picture, but the vast majority of films in the category are smaller dramas and indie fare. This year, no big studio blockbusters made the cut.
“The more happy meals and candy and cereal boxes that your film is plastered across, the less chance you have of being taken seriously at the end of the year,” notes Jeff Bock, analyst with Exhibitor Relations.
That bias was exactly what the category’s expansion was supposed to address. After 2008’s “The Dark Knight »

DC has been struggling hard to keep up with Marvel in recent years. Sure, their bottom line doesn’t look that bad, but it’s been nothing to brag about either. Across the board, their movies have fallen increasingly far behind their chief rival both critically and financially. Even their most ardent supporters are failing to drum up much enthusiasm for previously anticipated movies like Wonder Woman and Justice League. The tides, however, appear to be changing. They just released a new Batman movie that is their highest rated theatrical release since 2008’s The Dark Knight and cleared more than $100 million

Between the countless absurd action sequences, fist-pumping one-liners and monologues about family, you’d think each Fast & Furious film had a lengthy runtime, but such is not the case — at least not yet. According to European movie site Cinemarx, the upcoming eighth entry in the beloved franchise, The Fate of the Furious, will be the longest film yet.
Over time, the Fast & Furious movies have generally been getting longer, while still remaining at a reasonable length, with the first four films in the series all running in the 100-minute range and the three more recent movies in the 130-minute range. In fact, Furious 7 was the previous title holder of longest in the series, coming in at 137 minutes. Despite this trend, »

Last round's thread is here! The Battle I guess only Cap can defeat himself? And who will win between the two films that arguably opened the flood gates in 2008? Pick one film from each battle (copy and paste into comments), or leave it blank if you can't choose. You can still vote if you haven't seen a particular film in any particular battle. I'll count the votes, and the winning film goes to the next round, the losing film is eliminated. 1 Captain America: The Winter Soldier v Captain America: Civil War 2 The Dark Knight v Iron Man The Final 8 Results 1 Captain America: The Winter Soldier (41) defeated Doctor Strange (3) Doctor Strange was briefly mentioned in The Winter Soldier, but the Sorcerer Supreme was no match for the film that made Captain America cool. 2 Captain America: Civil War (28) defeated The Avengers (16) This was the toughest decision for votes, as although The »

Well, scratch one candidate off the list for “The Batman.”
As you know, Ben Affleck vacated the director’s chair on the brewing solo outing for his take on The Dark Knight, leaving open of the biggest job vacancies in Hollywood at the moment. Hope shone in the sky last week, when it was revealed that “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” director Matt Reeves was in talks for the project, but it seems the deal couldn’t be sealed.

Home Entertainment is looking to give fans of HBO's Westworld more insights into the series than ever before with their upcoming March 6th Digital HD/Sd release of the series' first season.

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with 2008's original Iron Man film, few people realized that the first appearance of Nick Fury in the inaugural Marvel Studios post-credits scene would've led to something so monumental. It's actually kind of hard now to think about a superhero film climate without the massive shared universe's presence, since it's existed for nearly a decade by now. In 2008, the big superhero movies that arrived that summer were the aforementioned Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and that was also the summer that gave us The Dark Knight. We were only two years removed from entries like X-Men: The Last Stand and Superman Returns, with both of those franchises being in precarious positions by the time the McU debuted. Now, though, we...

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
“Jesus, it breaks my heart seeing you like this.”
That’s probably not the quote word for word, but as Donald Pierce (head of security for a research facility up to no good and a southern drawl speaking cyborg leader played by Boyd Holbrook of Narcos rising fame) and his army of mercenaries physically have their way with Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman reprising the role possibly for one last rodeo) beating the crap out of him, »
