Celebrate the Dark Knight's 75th Anniversary on Batman Day

2 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Batman is pretty spry for a 75-year-old super hero. It’s easy to explain away Superman staying so fit and young over three quarters of a century: he’s an indestructible alien powered by our sun. Bruce Wayne and his alter ego are perfect examples for the phrase, “You’re only as old as you think you are.” As far as he’s concerned, he’s still the same guy who pulled on the cape and cowl back in June of 1939 to solve “The Case of the Crime Syndicate.”

I won’t deny that Superman is the most powerful super hero in the world. He also stood tall as the greatest Boy Scout and patriot of the U.S.A. Until recently, however, I’ve never been able to fully connect to the Man of Steel. He was too perfect and too strong. Now, DC Comics has given the character »

Transcendence Blu-Ray Review

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a shocking and dispiriting turn of events, Wally Pfister, the talented cinematographer of InceptionThe Dark Knight and practically every other Christopher Nolan film, chose Transcendence, surely one of the most jaw-droppingly brainless sci-fi movies in years, as his first directing gig. And Pfister will hopefully get out just about unscathed from this agonizing trainwreck, because his consistently stylish and visually pleasing direction is the only reason Transcendence should get any stars.

But I still must ask, what was he thinking? How is it possible that an Academy Award winner who worked on one of the best and most thoughtful sci-fi films of the last decade could have looked at the story of Transcendence and thought, “Yup, sounds good”? I can’t think of a wannabe blockbuster in recent memory that has ever been as gruesomely mauled to death by its script as Transcendence – after learning that screenwriter Jack Paglen »

Cool Stuff: The Dark Knight Tumbler Lego Out September

14 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Outside of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance, arguably the most iconic addition to the Batman universe thanks to Christopher Nolan‘s Dark Knight Trilogy was the Tumbler. The way Nolan created a functional, realistic Batmobile and continued to evolve it over the course of three films was just beyond cool. It was one of those things fans […]

Lego Reveals The Dark Knight Tumbler as Well as Heath Ledger Joker

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

Lego and Batman have been together for years, but always in a fun, cutesy way.  But at San Diego Comic-Con, Lego Batman is getting a little grittier by releasing not only The Dark Knight Tumbler, but also a Heath Ledger Joker minifigure.  The Tumbler will be on display at Comic-Con beginning Wednesday, and will go on sale in September.  The toy has 1,869 pieces and will retail for $199.  If you want to buy it, you're also going to have to clear some shelf space because the toy measures 15 inches tall and 9 inches wide plus it comes with a fact-sheet/plate. The Tumbler set also includes a new Batman figure, which is painted slightly differently than previously released Batman minifigs, yet it doesn't have the same Bat symbol as the one from The Dark Knight.  But where things get a little confusing for me is the Heath Ledger joker.  It will be included in the Tumbler set, »

Kevin Feige Talks 'Ant-Man' and Marvel's Relationships with Directors

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Guardians of the Galaxy debuting in just a few short weeks, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds lately. In a new interview with Empire, he discussed the departure of Ant-Man director Edgar Wright, the arrival of new director Peyton Reed, his thoughts on the new DC Comics/Warner Bros. movie universe, and more.

Following a separate interview earlier this week that shed new light on Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man the director offered new details about why the filmmaker and studio eventually went their separate ways.

"I don't know if we ever thought of ourselves as invincible, quite the opposite. If you start thinking you're invincible you start making bad decisions. We think we're very vincible, and worry all the time! No, it's much more personal than that.

We've been with Edgar for eight years, we saw the premiere of a number of his films in this very theatre. »

Why Captain America 3 Won't Be Moving Away From Batman v Superman

20 July 2014 9:47 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Marvel-dc movie rivalry hasn't quite reached WWE levels yet, but something tells me it's getting there. There hasn't been any direct competition between the two sides as of yet: Marvel has consistently made comparatively strong films, while DC's range from great (The Dark Knight) to stupefyingly awful (Green Lantern). But the two super powers are headed into battle in less than two years, utilizing the May 6th, 2016 slot for both Captain America 3 and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice . And Marvel head Kevin Feige continues to not back down, in true Vince McMahon fashion. Speaking to Empire, Feige attempts to both downplay the rivalry while also disregarding Warner Bros. completely. In the interview, Feige reiterates that Marvel is not in the business of backing down. "So I continue to be all for quality entertainment for moviegoers to enjoy on weekends. If it is on the same weekend I »

Weekend Box Office: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Repeats in First; The Purge: Anarchy in Second with $28.3 Million

20 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Purge: Anarchy may have come in first on Friday but, as expected, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes won the weekend box office race.  In its second frame, the sequel earned an estimated $36 million, down just 50% from its debut.  Among this summer’s franchise pics only 22 Jump Street had a comparable sophomore hold (-52%), while Transformers 4, Spider-Man, X-Men and Godzilla all fell by 60% or more.  Title Weekend Total 1.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes $36,000,000 $138.9 2.  The Purge: Anarchy $28,369,000 $28.3 3.  Planes: Fire & Rescue $18,000,000 $18 4.  Sex Tape $15,000,000 $15 5.  Transformers: Age of Extinction $10,000,000 $227.1 6.  Tammy $7,605,000 $71.2 7.  22 Jump Street $4,700,000 $180.5 8.  How to Train Your Dragon 2 $3,800,000 $160.6 9.  Maleficent $3,302,000 $228.3 10.  Earth to Echo $3,260,000 $31.9   More after the jump. Unfortunately, good news for Fox’s Apes reboot did not translate into a robust weekend at the box office.  Overall earnings were down 25% from this weekend in 2013, when The Conjuring  was on top with $41.8 million.  The decline is particularly notable because last year »

John Ostrander’s Late Look: How To Train Your Dragon 2

20 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I don’t always get out to see movies these days and I’ve missed some this summer that I wanted to see. My Mary and I had a chance to sneak in a film this week and we chose to catch How To Train Your Dragon 2 before it disappeared from the movie theaters. We had seen the first one and I had been impressed: good story, good animation, and a sense of things having consequences.

I liked the sequel even more.

I should note that sequels can be notoriously difficult to pull off well. You’ve already told your story. What else do you have and, if it’s any good, why didn’t you tell it first? Mind you, there are notable exceptions to the rule. Godfather II is not only better than the first film, it’s often described as one of the best films of all time. »

Captain America 3 won’t back down from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

20 July 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January, Warner Bros. set the stage for the biggest superhero movie showdown of all time when it pushed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back ten months, setting a release date of May 6th, 2016 – a date already earmarked by Marvel Studios for a then-untitled movie, which has since been confirmed as Captain America 3. Both Warner Bros. and Disney have subsequently stated that they have no intention of moving dates again, and now Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has reiterated that Cap won’t be backing down from the World’s Finest.

The Dark Knight movies were rather successful and genre-defining, they altered the genre in big ways,” Feige tells Empire. “So I think there has always been competition that way. I mean Iron Man was the number one movie of 2008 until The Dark Knight came along, and I loved it. frankly. I love that the number 1 and the number 2 movies of that year, »

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Talks DC’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

19 July 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s fair to say that a conversation is about as close as anyone is ever going to get to a Marvel/DC crossover, and we can almost certainly expect to see more of those between now and 2016. Though Marvel have plenty on their slate between now and then – not least Guardians Of The Galaxy hitting cinemas on August 1 – the spectre of that May 6th Marvel/DC release date clash is always there, looming in the shadows. At the present time, that is the date that Captain America 3 will go head-to-head at the box office with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and, unsurprisingly, President of Marvel Kevin Feige was questioned about it when he recently appeared on the Empire Magazine podcast.

“I don’t think it is quite fair to say DC is finally getting their act together. The Dark Knight movies were rather successful and genre-defining – they »
