Zack Snyder talks Batman vs. Superman

5 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We're still over two years out from the Batman vs. Superman (sure, it may not have a final agreed upon title, but I think that does the job for now), but, unsurprisingly, the excitement is high for the long awaited cinematic team up of the two comic icons (with Wonder Woman, and possibly The Flash thrown in for good measure). Also unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. have entered information lock down, but that didn't stop director Zach Snyder, returning after Man of Steel, from speaking to Forbes about what made them decide on putting The Dark Knight int the sequel. "After Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman", he said, "In the first meeting, it was like 'Maybe Batman?' Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite »

Box Office: Transcendence Flops; Captain America To Battle Rio 2 For #1 Spot...Again!

15 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Based on the trailers and cast, Transcendence looked set to be a hit. However, a wave of negative reviews for Wally Pfister's (the Dp of The Dark Knight Trilogy) directorial debut have resulted in a disappointing $850,000 debut at midnight showings. Now, the movie looks set to be yet Another flop for former box office draw Johnny Depp as The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the $100 million movie may not even be able to reach $20 million during this Easter weekend. There is a chance however that it could perform better overseas. Either way, that leaves the #1 spot in North America up for grabs with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2 each set to battle it out as they did previously. The latter is again tipped for the top spot with $24 million, but analysts predicted last week that the Marvel sequel would come in at second place »

Transcendence Review

16 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

For the last few years, Wally Pfister has been the cinematographer of choice for Christopher Nolan, providing the stunning imagery for the likes of Memento, The Dark Knight, and Inception. Now, with Transcendence, Pfister is trying his hand at directing, crafting a sci-fi thriller full of big ideas, that unfortunately falls down marrying these ideas to an effective narrative. Musing on the current state of technology, and what path it can take in the future, is nothing new. While the likes of Her kept it small, Transcendence goes as big as it can with the tale of Will Caster (Johnny Depp), whose life work is to create a viable artificial intelligence. Fatally injured in an attack by a militant anti-technology group, R.I.F.T., Caster's mind is uploaded to a computer by his distraught wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall), becoming in death what he strove to create in life. Ever evolving, »

Social Media Buzz: Science and Religion Collide as ‘Transcendence’ Takes on ‘Heaven Is For Real’

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Transcendence

The digital campaign for “Transcendence,” starring Johnny Depp, has tied into the movie’s plot with a viral campaign from extremist group “Rift” and ads appealing to sci-fi and technology fans.

Transcendence” has appealed to older demographics through partnerships with established tech firms like Ibm and through takeovers on technology websites like The Verge and news sites like the Huffington Post, attempting to sell fans on the intelligent, sci-fi plot. To reach younger males, “Transcendence” has been featured heavily on video games site IGN in an attempt to »

We love superheroes, you love superheroes, most everyone loves superheroes. Superhero movies have become so incredibly popular, sometimes it’s easy to forget their roots on the ink-covered pages of comic books. If it wasn’t for men like Stan Lee or  and Bill Finger, we’d never have movies like The Dark Knight or The Avengers. To […]

"Amazing Spider-Man 2" Aims For A Billion

17 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | 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

17 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | 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

17 April 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | 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.

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Interstellar

17 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | 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.

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.
