‘Transcendence’ Review: Johnny Depp Is a Ghost in the Machine in This Bug-Riddled Techno-Thriller

18 minutes ago | 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"

10 hours ago | 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:

"That's my problem, »

Creepy Vampire-Like Version of Frank Miller's Dark Knight

11 hours ago | 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.

Hans Zimmer Confirms His Return as 'Batman Vs. Superman' Composer

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. Here's what he had to say in a recent interview with Digital Spy, where he revealed that he will start crafting music for the DC Comics superhero follow-up once he finishes work on Christopher Nolan's 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."

Back in September, the composer revealed that he was undecided about taking on this sequel, since he will have to come up with a new Batman theme, after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He explained »

Hans Zimmer Set to Compose the Score for 'Batman vs. Superman'?

12 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment holding firm on their Batman vs. Superman release date of May 6th, 2016 to open against Disney and Marvel's Captain America 3, all we can do is wait and see what each of the superhero films do as they move through development and closer to production. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel already has a pretty full cast with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as Superman and Batman, not to mention Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but now we have another name added to the behind-the-scenes roster with Hans Zimmer confirmed to compose the score. Zimmer was previously unsure if he should return to score the film that will see the first big screen combination of Batman and Superman, mostly because of his work on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight franchise. Zimmer told Vulture: "Honestly, I’m just »

Hans Zimmer Returning to Score 'Batman vs. Superman'

12 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There was some doubt Hans Zimmer might not return to score Batman vs. Superman. In fact, Zimmer was leading the charge telling Vulture, "Honestly, I'm just sort of grappling with that right now... Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don't want to go and take what I did with Christopher Nolan and just plonk it into another movie. There isn't one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it." The biggest concern is clearly retreading the same territory he's already traveled on Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy saying, "I wouldn't want to put the ideas I used in the Chris Nolan Batman movies into a Superman movie. It just wouldn't feel right." Well, I guess he's comes to grips with the situation as he confirms with Digital Spy that he will return adding, "We've already had a couple of chats, »

Batman vs Superman Movie: 10 Cameos We Hope To See

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

Warner Bros.

Next to the impending Star Wars Episode VII, there is no movie production as obsessively followed and keenly scrutinised as Batman vs. Superman, which is due for release on May 6, 2016. What do we know so far?

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is once again helming, it will take many narrative cues from the comic The Dark Knight Returns, Ben Affleck is playing Batman, Gal Godot is playing Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons has snagged the role of Alfred Pennyworth.

Most of the news coming out of the movie’s camp so far has been pretty divisive to say the least, and with it being just a matter of time before high-profile shoots begin and images begin to leak out of Affleck’s new Batsuit, it’s time to consider what we actually want to see show up in this movie. Which characters, »

Hans Zimmer to Score Batman Vs. Superman

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though director Zack Snyder’s Superman redo Man of Steel proved to be a slightly divisive film, one of the highlights that most can agree on is composer Hans Zimmer’s score.  Following in the footsteps of John Williams’ iconic Superman theme was no easy task, but Zimmer succeeded in crafting something wholly separate from the 1978 classic that helped reinvent Superman for our modern age.  It also marked a shift for Snyder, who had collaborated with composer Tyler Bates on all of his previous features save for Legend of the Guardians. As Snyder is knee-deep in pre-production on his Man of Steel follow-up Batman vs. Superman (unofficial title), many have been wondering whether Zimmer would return.  As Zimmer already reinvented the Batman character less than a decade ago with Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, we were curious to see if he’d be up for the challenge of »

Hans Zimmer Says He's Scoring Batman vs. Superman

13 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Hans Zimmer is a pretty hot commodity right now in terms of musical composition, being attached to a number of high profile film projects; most recently The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  He's behind all of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, so many assumed he'd be returning to score Batman vs. Superman.  In a recent interview, Zimmer all but confirms he's returning and expresses his fears about coming up with a new theme for the caped crusader.  

I like Hans Zimmer...I like him a lot.  I think he does great work (though it may not be exactly subtle) and felt that Man of Steel benefited greatly from his work.  To be entirely honest, soundtracks on films have never been all that important to me.  Music hasn't ever been my "thing" especially since I'm deaf in one ear, but Zimmer's soundtracks always manage to catch my attention. »

Hans Zimmer will return to score Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman

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

After scoring all three films in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy (along with James Newton Howard), composer Hans Zimmer is gearing up to return to the DC superhero world with Batman Vs Superman. Zimmer, who is currently at work on Nolan's next outing, Interstellar, just supplied the score for The Amazing Spider-man 2, but has his sights clearly set on bringing the noise to Zack Snyder's next entry in the Man Of Steel franchise (or is it the Justice League franchise? Who knows...), »

Hans Zimmer Confirms That He Will Score Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman

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

In an interview with Digital Spy, Hans Zimmer has confirmed that Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have asked him to return for the follow-up to Man of Steel which will see Superman come face to face with Batman as soon as he finishes working on Christopher Nolan's 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 is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas," Zimmer revealed. However, the composer also commented on his concern over simply repeating the Caped Crusader's theme from The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the pressure of coming up with something new for this alternative take on the iconic DC superhero. "That's my problem, that's my dilemma.

David Fincher No Longer Attached to Steve Jobs Biopic Over $10 Million Dispute

14 April 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When it was revealed earlier this year that David Fincher was in talks to reteam with The Social Network’s Aaron Sorkin on a Steve Jobs biopic, excitement for the movie reached an all-time high, something which was hardly a surprise after the success of their last collaboration.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Ficher’s demands for his $10 million fee upfront and control over marketing (something which backfired for Sony on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo when they reportedly lost hundreds of thousands of dollars on metal, razor-blade-shaped one-sheets which couldn’t be used in cinemas) led to him parting ways with the project.

While sources tell the site that the director could still potentially re-enter negotiations down the line, they also state that David Fincher’s demands are “ridiculous”, adding: “You’re not doing Transformers here. You’re not doing Captain America. This is quality – it’s not screaming commerciality. »

Talking To The Cast And Director Of Transcendence At The World Premiere

14 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Wally Pfister’s Transcendence is kind of a big deal. For one, it stars a stunning cast that boasts Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Kate Mara. That aside though, Pfister has been Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer and has turned films like The Dark Knight and Inception into visually stunning pieces of work. So, it’s quite understandable why moviegoers are eager to see him make his feature-film debut.

For those who haven’t been keeping up, Transcendence follows Dr. Will Caster (Depp), a scientist who uploads his brain to a computer before he dies. While it seems like good idea at first, Will’s “thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power,” and it becomes increasingly apparent that there is no way to stop him.

Last week in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. rolled out the red carpet for Pfister and his cast »

Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall And the Cast Of ‘Transcendence’ Talk The Singularity Of Wally Pfister’s Directorial Debut

14 April 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since their first partnership on 2000’s “Memento," the work of Oscar-winning Dp Wally Pfister has helped shape and define the trademark style of Christopher Nolan and his output. His influence has proved so pronounced that Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar” will mark an unclear break in DNA, it being “The Dark Knight” director’s first outing in 14 years without his usual collaborator. Not that bad blood had anything to do with the split, however. Instead, Pfister harnessed the years of working alongside Nolan into his first directorial effort, “Transcendence," starring Johnny Depp. An ambitious cyber-thriller in the vein of “The Lawnmower Man," the film still boasts a lineup of familiar faces to any fan of Nolan’s work, but in a recent Los Angeles press conference, members of the massive cast, along with Pfister and screenwriter Jack Paglen, set about discussing the unique aspects to the cautionary tale. “Technology is probably »

14 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier has had a second stellar weekend at the box office.

That makes it two worldwide weekends in a row at over $100 million and nearly half a billion to date as it continues to draw audiences internationally and in North America. With the success of directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s sequel , Marvel/Disney have officially announced Captain America 3 will open on May 6, 2016.

About two years have passed since the alien invasion of New York was repulsed by Nick Fury’s special team – The Avengers. The world is now well aware that extra-terrestrials, godlike beings and monsters may be lurking in the cosmos and that Super Heroes walk among us. The demand for protection of the world’s citizenry has reached a zenith. In response to the world’s justifiable fears, S.H.I.E.L.D. has expanded its presence to enhance the security of Earth. »

TV Review: 'Fargo' Honors the Coens' Original Vision While Allowing Us More Time in Their Wintery World

"It's a red tide, Lester, this life of ours. The shit they make us eat day after day, the boss, the wife, etc, wearing us down, if you don't stand up to it, let 'em know you're an ape, deep down where it counts, you're just going to get washed away." That's Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo on the new FX miniseries, "Fargo," an adaptation of Joel and Ethan Coen's Oscar-winning film from 1996. Thornton's character is the hand that tips the dominos in writer, executive producer, and showrunner Noah Hawley's miniseries that the Coen brothers also produce. He's the stimulant. He's the creator of chaos, and what makes him truly unique, compelling, and magnetic is that he loves every second of it. Malvo will say and do anything to get a rise out of someone, sometimes with ulterior motives in mind and sometimes for the sheer joy »
