Gary Whitta to Adapt Mark Millar’s Starlight After He Wraps up Star Wars Script

19 September 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Gary Whitta is on what you'd call a roll lately.  After being hired to write one of the upcoming Star Wars standalone films (to be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards), it was announced today that he'd be adapting Mark Millar's graphic novel Starlight for Twentieth Century Fox.  The comic, written by Millar and illustrated by Goran Parlov, hit stores in March under the Image comics banner and is intended to be a six-part miniseries (issue number five arrived last month).  Millar has called the material a mash-up of Flash Gordon and The Dark Knight Returns. We already knew that Fox was tackling the project and that Simon Kinberg, the comic gatekeeper over there, would be producing.  But Whitta's hire is significant in that he's highly in demand and his involvement signals faith in the material all around.  Hit the jump for more. THR broke the news of Whitta's involvement. »

Holy 'Star Wars,' Batman: Millennium Falcon footage features Batmobile

18 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

While some unofficial photos of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars Episode VII have been popping up, there hasn’t yet been an official look at Han Solo’s hunka junk … until now. And with it comes the appearance of another famous vehicle, though not one fans may have expected.

J.J. Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, debuted the first footage of the Millennium Falcon in a short clip. The shot pans down the side of the Falcon when, suddenly, Hans Zimmer’s theme from The Dark Knight kicks up. The audio cue isn’t just a fun reference, however—the »

The Batmobile Is Part of the New Millennium Falcon

18 September 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Director Zack Snyder has been on a bit of a Star Wars kick lately, tweeting out various pictures from the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice set that riff on classic Star Wars visuals. This morning J.J. Abrams and his production company Bad Robot have struck back. A YouTube clip entitled "Hunka Junk" features a long, lingering tour of the exterior of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: Episode VII, accompanied by John Williams' classic score. Midway through, the music shifts into Hans Zimmer's work from The Dark Knight trilogy, with the camera eventually settling upon a small addition to

Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 Staffing Up with Former Warner Bros. Exec

17 September 2014 12:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeff Robinov’s Sony-based Studio 8 has been ramping up staffing, hiring former Warner Bros. exec VP Robert Brassel and Mythology Entertainment exec Jon Silk.

Studio 8 closed its distribution deal with Sony on Sept. 8 with plans to release six films a year. Robinov, the former Warner Bros. studio chief, said at that point that he expected to raise $1 billion from financiers and a partnership China’s Fosun Group.

Brassel joined Warner Bros. in 1986 and oversaw “The Fugitive,” “Outbreak,” Oliver Stone’s “Alexander”  and “Interview With The Vampire.” He became a VP of production at DreamWorks Skg, then returned to Warner Bros. in 2001.

Robinov carries a strong reputation for maintaining strong relationships with filmmakers such as Christopher Nolan and Ben Affleck. He oversaw “Gravity” and “The Dark Knight” franchise during his tenure at Warner Bros.

Prior to taking the Mythology gig, Silk worked at Warner-based Lin Pictures and co-produced “Gangster Squad. »

20 Most Epic Wrestling Matches That Weren’t Supposed To Be Epic

16 September 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

If you were to compare pro wrestling history to the film industry, then it would be safe to state that the majority of fans best remember the matches that are comparable to the epic big-screen classics. The Godfather, The Dark Knight, and Titanic are three examples of celebrated movies that all have in common a length befitting of a thorough and complete story.

Since the 1980s birthed “The WrestleMania Era,” it has been similarly lengthy dramas in sports entertainment that have drawn the most critical acclaim and fan adulation. Yet, what of those matches that were never intended to be epic? Are not their achievements of remaining memorable amidst a sea of lengthier counterparts just as if not more impressive?

Today, we look back at twenty bouts that may not have been given the time to be “matches for the ages,” but wound up being epic all the same. »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Matthew McConaughey on Another World in New 'Interstellar' Poster

16 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following yesterday's awesome Poster Posse collection from Blurppy for this fall's release of Interstellar from director Christopher Nolan, an official poster from Paramount Pictures has debuted online. This one is a little more conventional as it merely shows Matthew McConaughey on another world, which we've seen glimpsed in the most recent trailer for the film as well. Some think that the most recent trailer showed too much, but considering it's all out of context and a Nolan movie has never been spoiled by trailers, it shouldn't be anything to worry about. Could we get one more trailer before the release? We'll see. Here's the latest official poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from Empire: Watch the most recent trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar right here! Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. »

16 September 2014 1:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The image on this new poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar may look a little familiar from our last story, but The Dark Knight director liked the image he selected for Empire so much that he has also made it the official Us one-sheet for the film.As ever with this particular director, he's not giving much away. We can tell, from that strange folded-over landscape, that Matthew McConaughey's Cooper ain't in Kansas anymore, as we glimpsed in the trailer. But beyond that the film is keeping its secrets close. What we do know is that Cooper and his team are sent from a dying Earth to find a new home for humanity, and we're guessing this is one of the possibilities they inspect.The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine and John Lithgow.

10 Great Film Directors and Their Very Specific Obsessions

15 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There are some directors whose work you can identify on the spot because of their films' style, look, music, or the actors involved. (Think Wes Anderson or Tim Burton.) And then there are some who can be I.D.d by recurring motifs that pop up again and again in their work. Alfred Hitchcock had a weird thing for blondes, yet compared to some of these other filmmakers' recurring obsessions, Hitch seems downright clean-cut. Let's take a look at some of our favorite directors and their … well, interesting proclivities.Christopher Nolan:Dead wives (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception)Nolan is beloved by his fan base for the tightly calculated precision of his screenwriting and shooting styles. In that cool detachment, he may have been unaware of an increasingly disturbing trope that shows up time and again in his films: dead wives. The entire plot of Memento is driven »

Ben Affleck Talks About Batman’s Anger Issues In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

15 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite its constant appearance in the news cycle, we still don’t know very much about Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially when it comes to the version of the Caped Crusader that we’ll see on screen. No two Batman interpretations are completely alike, and from the sound of it, Ben Affleck will play a far different Batman than Christian Bale did in the Dark Knight trilogy.

We’ve already heard reports that this version is in his mid-40s, making him a bit older than previous versions of the character, and that he’s likely been operating in the shadows of Gotham for quite some time. This darker, more seasoned crime fighter will draw inspiration from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, and even has a massive and powerful Batmobile to prove it.

Ben Affleck Can Relate to the Anger in 'Batman v Superman'

15 September 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Affleck has a great challenge ahead of him in the next few months as he heads out on the road to promote David Fincher's Gone Girl, in theaters the first week of October. He will be asked to talk about the 2016 release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice without really being able to talk about it. The UK Sunday Times manages to get him to open up a little bit about the character of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego The Dark Knight, with the actor explaining how he deals with Batman's rage issues.

Anger is something Ben Affleck has had an easy time suppressing. Though when it comes, it comes in loud quick bursts. The actor was able to channel this into his performance as Bruce Wayne, an aging vigilante who has a run-in with the universe's strongest alien life form, known to mankind as Superman.

Ben Affleck talks about playing the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

15 September 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”

In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

Video: Jessica Chastain Briefly Discusses Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

THR caught up with Chastain at the Toronto International Film Festival, and asked her about her role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Although her character is rumoured to be the grown up daughter of Matthew McConaughey's space-fairing lead, since that still hasn't been confirmed she plays coy with specifics -- simply stating that although she's "not a huge part" of the film, she does have a "great role".
