Hot Toys’ Batman Armory from The Dark Knight

1 hour ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In The Dark Knight, Bruce Wayne has a secret underground lair that stood in for the Batcave while Wayne Manor was being rebuilt. It was a well-lit, rectangular room that was a stark contrast with the more familiar, cavernous and moody Batcave which would be finished in The Dark Knight Rises. The makeshift Batcave wasn’t without its charms, though. It was clean and functional, and Bruce Wayne’s armory housed all the badass Bat gadgets one could ever want. Every piece of that armory is faithfully recreated in Hot Toys’ 1/6 scale version that comes with both Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth.

You can check out the rest of the detail images at Cbm. »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

4 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

12 Biggest Missed Opportunities In Comic Book Movie History

5 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Twentieth Century Fox

At present it is easy to forgive the minor miscasting or questionable narrative choices that occur in comic book movies. For every trifling disappointment there is a triumphant pay-off to be found in films such as The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy, which have received virtually universal seals of approval from the fan community since their release.

Even in great superhero flicks though there can be head scratching moments which make you think how much they would be improved if they’d utilised certain characters in more effective ways, or made a different narrative choice, or in extreme cases, even if a different version of the property, with an entirely different creative team, had been greenlit instead.

What follows are twelve of these moments, opportunities that could have improved the film in question or projects that never saw the light of day, that could have »

21 Greatest Batman Movie Easter Eggs

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Regardless of how you might feel about all of the directors who have handled the Batman franchises – and those who will in the future – one unavoidable thing is that each of them has created something that pays open homage to the source. Such is the nature of the beast – the films are interpretations, and even the most removed – the films of Nolan – had to express similarities to keep the Batman fans engaged.

Yes, some – Schumacher – lacked the restraint and self-awareness to really make anything good, but he showed exactly the same joy for Batman, and indeed for film-making as a whole as Burton and Nolan did. He just got over-excited and nobody told him to calm down.

As a result of that filmic awareness and passion, each of the Batman films, from 1989 onwards, were positively rammed with in-jokes, references and Easter Eggs, and as Batman film fans we »

20 Best Selling Blu-Rays Of All Time

9 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The entire movie industry is all about the cinema. Any film released direct-to-dvd is viewed as not worth your time (a fair estimation most of the time) and the home video market is rarely paid as much attention as the box office. Which is pretty strange given how it’s an increasingly important part of how people consume films. The likes of Waterworld, which is still highly regarded as one of the most high-profile flops ever, managed to actually turn a profit once they hit home video (in that film’s case VHS), but that’s often ignored as a cheeky little nest-egg that studio’s don’t have to report.

In fact, if you want to find actual numbers for a film’s post-cinema success you’ll have to bring a calculator and some extreme patience; finding actual information about home video sales is nigh on impossible. All »

10 Biggest Parts Of The Marvel Movie Formula (That Will Destroy The Series)

15 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

After The Dark Knight it initially appeared superheroes had nowhere else to go. Here was the zenith of the genre, expertly bringing the graphic novel source to life in a totally legitimate way that almost, gasp, didn’t feel like a comic book movie. Surely anything that followed would be unable to escape the shadow of Christopher Nolan’s epic.

In the intervening six years we’ve seen comic book movies raise the game to a whole other level. Nothing is yet to hit The Dark Knight levels, but with shared universes now in vogue the genre’s only increased its box office dominance. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, which sneakily kicked off with Iron Man mere months before The Dark Knight, took the essence of what made Nolan’s Batman work, threw in an overarching continuity and more levity, and became one of the biggest franchises of all time. »

Patrick Warburton Will Return as The Tick for Amazon

31 August 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

According to People.com, Patrick Warburton is set to reprise his role as the title character in The Tick, which is being revived on Amazon.

The Tick is a comic by Ben Edlund that was first adapted as a cartoon series in the mid ’90s before being turned into a live-action comedy. Despite receiving critical acclaim, the show only lasted one season before being cancelled by Fox in 2002. The show likely lacked the action and drama more mature audiences were expecting going up against a show like Smallville, which also debuted in 2001. It was also a little too adult for young fans of the animated TV series. The fact that Fox didn’t own the rights to all The Tick characters made the show feel even less familiar to those fans as well, with Die Fledermaus and American Maid being changed to Batmanuel and Captain Liberty. However, the series has »

L.A. Slasher Set to Terrorize Salt Lake Comic Con with Two Special Screenings

30 August 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Social satire horror film L.A. Slasher is opening and closing the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con, running September 4-6; and if you'll be there, we have all the details you need right here, including a look at the Con's guest list, which is pretty impressive considering it's only their second year.

L.A. Slasher, directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys, The Alphabet Killer), will have a special advance screening to open the festival and a midnight screening to close it out.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2013 was the largest first-year comic convention in North American history and the largest convention ever to take place in Utah. This year’s event will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“We are thrilled that such an iconic event will be screening our film,” said L.A. Slasher producer Jeffrey Wright.

Liam Neeson Would Reprise 'Ra's Al Ghul' Role In Arrow "In A Heartbeat"

29 August 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Get More: Movie Trailers, Celebrity News Ra's Al Ghul was recently revealed to be the big bad of Arrow's third season, and while we still don't know who will play the villain in The CW series, we do now know of at least one actor interested in taking on the role even if does just so happen to be someone who's already played him! Asked by MTV News whether he's been approached about making a return, Liam Neeson told them: "No, I haven’t, I haven’t at all," but if asked, "I would, in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah Very much so." Of course, the chances of the network being able to afford an actor of Neeson's calibre or Arrow linking to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy in this way are pretty much slim to none, but it would still be interesting to see! »

Week in Review: ‘No Jokes’ in DC movies

29 August 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We can debate all day which comic book hero is cooler: DC or Marvel? Superman or Spiderman? Justice League or The Avengers? Batman or anyone who isn’t cool enough to be Batman? But it’s no question that Marvel has a serious leg-up on DC in the movie business.

Outside of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, DC has had a harder time making their characters stick and is even behind the ball in planning their lineup of films. Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was one of the highest grossing films of last year, but it was forgotten as a dour, colorless, over-important mess as soon as it arrived. And yet this model may be the template DC is pursuing with all their future projects.

Drew McWeeny at Hitfix wrote a column saying that he’s heard numerous rumblings from Warner Bros. insiders that the policy for all their »

Cool Videos: What if Christopher Nolan directed The Incredibles

29 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Just last week we got a look at the trailer for Up if it had been directed by Michael Bay. Using the all of the tricks, lens flares, and explosions the filmmaker is known for, the clip was a good one. Now, we have another mash-up, this time combining two of the best superhero films of all time: The Dark Knight and The Incredibles. Imagining the Pixar classic as if it were helmed by Christopher Nolan may be the closest we will ever get to seeing what his vision for Watchmen may have looked »

What a “No Jokes” DC Comics Movie Universe Would Look Like

29 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You may have heard that Warner Bros. has introduced a new policy to their future DC Comics universe, summed up in two simple words (that, we assumed, were delivered while yelling and slamming one’s hand on a table): “No Jokes.” That’s what Drew McWeeny says, over at Hitfix. Warner and DC are looking at the success of stuff like The Dark Knight and Man of Steel, and the abysmal failure of Ryan Reynolds’ goofy Green Lantern, and making an executive decision. Two rights + one wrong = stop that laughing. From now on, all future DC Comics movies will be grim and dark and gritty and gritty and serious and dark: watching any future DC film will be like chewing a mouthful of gravel while your dad says you were an accident that he never loved. You may have then heard a few other sources call foul on this report. Forbes »

Jesse Eisenberg Says 'Lex Luthor' Is 'Complicated And Challenging' In Batman V Superman

29 August 2014 5:35 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Total Film caught up with Jesse Eisenberg to discuss his new drama Night Moves and, more importantly, his role as Lex Luthor in the highly-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the 30-year-old actor revealed he does not read comics nor has he seen any comic book movies. In fact, when Tf mentioned how Heath Ledger reinvented the Joker and tapped into modern-day fears of terrorism in The Dark Knight, Eisenberg could only reply, "Oh, that's interesting, really interesting." However, after he had landed the villain role in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up, the actor did look through stacks of comics and he also watched "that movie with Gene Hackman," referring to one of Christopher Reeve's early Superman movies. "My father always cautions me against thinking of something as a means to some other end, because then its irresponsible to the 'means' thing," explained Jesse Eisenberg, »

New trailer for Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo

We got a new poster earlier in the week, and now Sony has dropped another trailer for Foxcatcher, the upcoming biographical drama starring Steve Carell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street) and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers); check it out below…

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his »

No Jokes Allowed In "Batman v Superman"?

27 August 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

If you thought "Man of Steel" was a bit dour and lacking a sense of humor, it turns out there may have been a reason for that.

Hitfix has reported that according to multiple sources, there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development. That mandate is just two simple, direct words: "No jokes."

Wrtier Drew McWeeny says: "Last week was about the fifth time I've heard that there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development, and it's very simple and direct and to the point. 'No Jokes'." Others have since weighed in and claim their sources have heard the same.

In comics form, DC has generally been seen as the serious, grim brother to Marvel's more unabashedly fun personality - a trait that has carried over to the movies with films like "The Dark Knight »
