Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Dubs Jared Leto's Joker "Majestic"

6 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When The Dark Knight was in pre-production I recall seeing a blurry photo of Heath Ledger walking to the set in what appeared to be his Joker makeup. People went crazy, and not in a good way. “He looks nothing like the Joker, this is going to be awful” was the gist of it. Then the film came out and everyone found themselves blown away by his interpretation. Now the time has come for a new Joker and I dread having to go through that once again. This is why we »

Viola Davis Talks Joining "Suicide Squad"

28 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After rumors and then numerous unofficial confirmations, actress Viola Davis finally confirmed earlier this week that she will be Amanda Waller in David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" movie and other films in the DC Cinematic Universe. Speaking about taking on the role, Davis tells THR:

"As a comic book and Wonder Woman fan, I love the whole DC Comics universe. I traded comics as a kid so all of that appeals to me. When you dream about being an actor as a kid, that's what you dream about.

It's like play acting: being the superhero, getting the gun; it plays into that fantasy. How to Get Away with Murder changed my exposure. I don't know if it changed the quality of roles as much as it the exposure. I mean certainly Amanda Waller is a fabulous character."

The comments follow various people involved in the film have been talking it up this week. »

Rosamund Pike set for The Deep Blue Good-By opposite Christian Bale

27 February 2015 7:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having enjoyed critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination for her work in the superb Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike has wasted no time in choosing her next project.

Variety is reporting that the British actress is set to join Oscar winner Christian Bale (The Fighter, The Dark Knight Trilogy) in The Deep Blue Good-By, an adaptation of a Travis McGee novel to be directed by James Mangold, who worked with Bale in his 3:10 To Yuma remake in 2007.

Travis McGee is a detective in John D. MacDonald’s popular mystery series, and The Deep Blue Good-by was first published in 1964. The official synopsis of the story is:

Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He.s also a knight-errant who.s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule »

Margot Robbie didn’t audition for Suicide Squad, says it’s more Dark Knight than The Avengers

27 February 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad set to begin in April, we will be hearing a lot from the cast members involved over the next few months. We’ve heard from Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) on several occasions over the past couple of weeks while she is on the promotional tour for Focus (read our review here) and we’ve now got some more insights from her on the role.

“I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,” she told MTV News before adding that she, “didn’t have to do chemistry reads or anything like that.”

Robbie, who is signed on to play Harley Quinn for the next ten years, was also asked about the tone of the movie.

Margot Robbie Compares 'Suicide Squad' to 'Dark Knight'

26 February 2015 4:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Focus will be in theaters this Friday, which means our wealth of Suicide Squad quotes will soon run dry as Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, and Will Smith, the man who promises to give us the greatest Deadshot in the history of comic books, leave their press tour behind to actually start filming. But we still have one more day, which means one more piece of insightful information, offering a tease of what director David Ayer has in store for this DC Comics super villain adventure.

Speaking with MTV, Margot Robbie was asked where Suicide Squad falls in the spectrum of superhero movies. Will it be dark, serious and somber like Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight? Or will it be colorful and fun like Marvel's The Avengers? This being a DC Comics movie, her answer shouldn't surprise you:

Movie Review – The Boy Next Door (2015)

25 February 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Boy Next Door, 2015

Directed by Rob Cohen

Starring Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Ian Nelson, John Corbett, Kristin Chenoweth

Synopsis:

A newly divorced woman falls for a younger man who has recently moved in across the street from her, but their torrid affair soon takes a dangerous turn.

Those disappointed that Jupiter Ascending and Fifty Shades of Grey didn’t provide them with endless amounts of unintentional comedy, then The Boy Next Door is here to save the day. With an unmissable stench of “straight to video”, The Boy Next Door is an “erotic thriller” with ludicrous plot holes, laughably bad dialogue and a tremendously awful villainous performance. In short, it’s terrible.

One hopes that Jennifer Lopez was not planning on this to be the movie that revives her career, but it was clearly a project she thought had legs. She’s not only a producer on the movie, »

Batman V Superman: Hans Zimmer discusses the music

24 February 2015 11:03 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hans Zimmer isn't writing the new Batman theme - but he is working on something for Wonder Woman and Aquaman...

More than any other composer in the superhero genre, Hans Zimmer has been able to leave his musical stamp. Sure, John Williams composed iconic soundscapes for Superman, and Danny Elfman also has a beloved legacy with both Batman and Spider-Man (Ang Lee's Hulk movie, too). However, Hans Zimmer has written themes for all three of those superheroes, and he’s not done yet.

While chatting with MTV at the Oscars, Zimmer talked about scoring for multiple heroes in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Because in addition to following up his memorable work of creating an all-American Superman sound for the 21st century on Man Of Steel, we now have new heroes that he has never worked with before, including Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Hell, for all we know, Cyborg »

How to Fix the Oscars in 5 Easy Steps

24 February 2015 3:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscars weren’t just a disappointment in terms of viewership — down 16%, with tepid reviews for host Neil Patrick Harris — it also speaks to a much larger problem for Hollywood. The Oscars are supposed to be a celebration of all facets of the movie-making business, but in recent years, the ceremony has started to feel more and more insular, like an employee-of-the-year celebration that happens to be televised for the entire world. The gap between the movies that win the Oscars (“Birdman” with its relatively small box office of $37 million) and movies that general audiences love to watch (“The Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain America 2,” etc.) continues to grow wider, which is why the ceremony is facing an identity crisis. Popular actors such as Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans attend only as presenters, while a mega-hit franchise like “The Hunger Games” has yet to receive a single Oscar nomination. »

Hans Zimmer Will Compose 'Aquaman', 'Wonder Woman' Themes

24 February 2015 10:02 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, we reported that composer Hans Zimmer will team up with Junkie Xl to provide the score for Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated DC Comics adaptation Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With post-production currently under way, MTV caught up with Hans Zimmer on the Oscars red carpet, where he revealed that he hasn't quite begun work on the score yet. He also talked about providing the individual themes for incoming heroes such as Jason Momoa's Aquaman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. Here's what he had to say, revealing that he already has a couple of ideas in mind for the entire Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice soundtrack:

"I have one day off and you guys have to go right to the unwritten score. No, I've got an idea. I've got a couple of ideas."

Zimmer, Robbie On "Batman" Music, Quinn

24 February 2015 9:01 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Having worked on both Chris Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy and Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel," composer Hans Zimmer is understandably returning for Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" which brings together Henry Cavill's Superman with a new take on Batman played by Ben Affleck.

With various films and shows involving multiple heroes and villains, one trick often used is to give each of the characters an individual theme to help differentiate them. Speaking at the Oscars on Sunday, Zimmer was asked by MTV if that was the plan:

"I’m trying, I’ll put it that way. We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do...I’ve got a couple of ideas."

Zimmer admits proper work has not yet begun on the film's score, which he is collaborating with Junkie Xl on. He was, however, »

9 Awesome Deleted Scenes From The Dark Knight Trilogy

24 February 2015 7:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Brothers

The Dark Knight Trilogy is one of the most critically acclaimed and financially successful movie series of all time. By merging modern world issues with classic Batman lore, writer and director Christopher Nolan played a key part in ushering in the current age of superhero movies.

People love these movies, and so naturally many are constantly on the prowl for new snippets of intriguing facts detailing their production. However, Nolan is known for being a particularly secretive director who, similar to a magician, likes to keep details of filmmaking a mystery. He is not especially fond of commentaries and, yes, deleted scenes. In fact, since he usually doesn’t start filming before he is completely satisfied with a script, not much is actually deleted from his films. And since he considers his theatrical cuts to be his director’s cuts, don’t expect to see what little deleted »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

James Gunn Defends Comic Book Movies After a Few Awards Jabs

23 February 2015 6:53 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Director James Gunn has quickly become an idol behind the camera after bringing Guardians of the Galaxy to the big screen for Marvel Studios. It was a refreshing sci-fi adventure that defied the expectations of everyone, and it was one of my own favorite movies of 2014. However, there's always those who are perpetually against blockbuster films like that, whether it's The Avengers or Star Wars or The Dark Knight or any big budget movie that rakes in the dough. And after a couple jokes and remarks from this past weekend's awards shows, Gunn took to Facebook to talk about genre elitism from the "serious" filmmakers. First of all, here's a little context, since it seems this was inspired by two specific instances of superhero movie bashing at the this past weekend. First of all, during the opening musical number, Jack Black had a solo which included these lyrics: “This industry »

If You Love This Year's Oscar Winners, Watch These Four Similar Nominees Next

23 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's only one rule as far as the kinds of performance that get nominated for Oscars go: Someone has already been nominated for a role just like it. While it was thrilling to watch Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette, and Jk Simmons pick up expected Oscars for their work this year, it cannot be denied that many of their roles have obvious Oscar forebears. Here are four performances you should watch next if you loved "Still Alice," "The Theory of Everything," "Boyhood," and "Whiplash."  If you liked Julianne Moore in "Still Alice," watch Bette Davis in "Dark Victory" Julianne Moore copes with the inevitability of a devastating condition in "Still Alice," and her decline is both grim and undeniably cinematic. Her emotional and physical transformations serve as the movie's entire plot, and her family's shifting response to her progressing Alzheimer's is just as compelling. In Oscar history, we actually »
