Warner Bros Has a No Jokes Policy For Its Superhero Films?

29 minutes ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Hitfix is reporting that many of its sources have confirmed that the new policy at Warner Bros is for all of the studio's future superhero films to not have jokes. While humor can be a good way to alleviate tension, Warner Bros apparently wants nothing in their movies to be funny. It's not clear why such a policy would be in place when Marvel's movies are filled with jokes and consistently do very well at the box office. In fact, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is as far from a serious movie and it's about to set the domestic box office record. It's possible that Warner Bros may want to differentiate itself from Marvel by offering something darker. It worked for "The Dark Knight" trilogy and "Man of Steel." And the studio's "Green Lantern" had Ryan Reynolds cracking jokes every five seconds and that was a big flop. »

Sr Giveaway – Win A Joker Figure From Sideshow Collectibles!

20 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Batman is returning to the big screen in 2016′s Man of Steel followup, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, potentially setting up a new Batman series for star Ben Affleck, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has already gone down in history by Batman comic writers saying the director “got it right.” The most telling example of this is the at-the-time unusual casting of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight, a performance so memorable and powerful that the actor posthumously won an Academy Award. The Joker’s introduction in The Dark Knight came in the form of a bank heist (shot in IMAX) that the villainous mastermind organized, involving clown masks, a variety of weapons ...

New poster for Foxcatcher featuring Steve Carell

25 August 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony has released a new poster for director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) upcoming biographical drama Foxcatcher, which features Steve Carell as John du Pont, Olympic benefactor turned murderer. Check it out…

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 disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

Flattered by the attention and entranced by du Pont’s majestic world, »

Hawkeye's New Costume Takes Center Stage In Avengers 2 Pic

25 August 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

More purple! Marvel got my letters! Oh, I know. When Joss Whedon.s The Avengers came out, superheroes (the bulk of them, anyway) still had to conform to the dark, morose tones of Batman.s The Dark Knight template. So yes, while Captain America rocked the stars and bars, Jeremy Renner.s Hawkeye (and Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow) had to mainly wear black. Not any more, according to this new costume shot shared by Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie). Changes are being implemented, and are leading to vast improvements over Hawkeye's dull duds from The Avengers. Remember this? And the photo at the top? Except anyone who ever picked up a comic book knows that Hawkeye.s awesome costume is predominantly purple. Like, a bold purple! And stripping this hero.s costume of that dominant color was more than a shame. It.s supposed to look like this: Mind you, »

12 Blockbuster Films That Flopped In America (But Were Loved Overseas)

25 August 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Over the last few decades, the rapid expansion of international markets has seen domestic box office grosses become increasingly irrelevant when it comes to a studio blockbuster’s chances of commercial success. In fact, of the 50 highest-grossing movies in history only three of them have earned less than 50% of their box office totals from outside of the United States. Two of them are Star Wars and E.T. (which were released way back in 1977 and 1982), and the third is The Dark Knight.

Recently, the emergence of China as one of the movie industry’s most lucrative markets has seen numerous Hollywood blockbusters directly appeal to the country’s cinema audiences in an attempt to generate extra box office. For example, even though this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction is the lowest-grossing entry in the franchise domestically by some distance, it has sailed past the billion-dollar mark thanks »

The highs and lows of Frank Miller: The most divisive man in comics

24 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Whatever your feelings about Frank Miller are, his influence over comics cannot be denied. Only Alan Moore's work in the '80s can be compared in terms of the effect it would have on superheroes - in comics, films and the public eye - over the intervening decades.

With the release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For - his second collaboration with Robert Rodriguez adapting his noir comic of the same name - Miller is back in the public eye, talking about his love of Superman and Batman and generally upsetting everyone.

To mark the occasion, we look back at the highs and lows of Frank Miller's career.

The Highs

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

If there is one character with which Miller is best identified, it has to be Batman. 1986's The Dark Knight Returns - which he wrote and drew - is frequently cited »

How Politicizing Batman Gets Dangerous

23 August 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As far as most people can tell, though the actual chronology tends to get confusing, it all started with the late Andrew Brietbart.

In between the right wing of American politics stomping up and down about Hollywood liberals like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie, occasionally they take a break and instead summarily hijack a beloved film for their own political means.  As opposed to successfully producing content that is undoubtedly in line with their politics, guys like Rush Limbaugh and Brietbart are quicker to repurpose an already well-packaged product.

That’s exactly what Brietbart.com did with Christopher Nolan’s second foray into Gotham, praising The Dark Knight for its clear anti-terrorism pro-Patriot Act stance.  This became a major talking point throughout the news and blogosphere as the film’s popularity grew.  And for folks as far right as Limbaugh, it must have felt like Christmas.

I mean, here we have a film, »

Sin City Creator Frank Miller on the Future of Comics and Collaborating With Robert Rodriguez

22 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Comic-book iconoclast Frank Miller is his own best character. After his much-imitated, years-long run on Marvel Comics' Daredevil, he bullishly pushed the boundaries of how mainstream comics stories were told in milestone titles like The Dark Knight Returns, Ronin, and 300. His heroes are similarly self-assured beyond mere arrogance: They're above reproach, a standard that Miller maintains as a rejection of psychological realism. His comics often take place in decadent cities. But even in his Sin City comics, Miller maintains an undiminished — albeit deranged — sense of optimism and romance. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Robert Rodriguez's new "translation" of Miller's hyper-violent neo-noir comics, Josh Brolin plays a sucker that pines for Eva Green's vicious (and frequently naked) femme fatale with a little help from killer friends Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson. Vulture talked to Miller about how he stays optimistic, what the future of comics »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Gives Sandman Movie Update

21 August 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A feature film adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal Sandman comic book has been in development hell for years now, leaving many fans doubtful that the beloved series would ever make it to the big screen. Late last year, however, The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer (who recently signed a first-look deal with Warner Brothers) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced that they were working on an adaptation, with Gaiman himself on board to give them a hand.

There’s no word on when we can expect to see the film hit theaters, or whether or not it’s one of the nine untitled DC projects slated for release between 2016 and 2020. Rumor has it that Gordon-Levitt will star in and direct the project as well, but according to him, his focus right now is nailing the screenplay. He recently spoke with Moviefone, and gave the following »
