Starring Oscar winners Christian Bale (The Dark Knight), Cate Blanchett (Carol) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan), the film premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival and is being released by Broad Green Pictures.
Bale plays a “bewildered man in a life of Hollywood excess.” Antonio Banderas (Automata), Brian Dennehy (Romeo & Juliet), Jason Clarke (Terminator Genisys), Imogen Poots (She’s Funny That Way) and Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad) are set to co-star in the film, if they make the cut through Malick’s rigorous editing process.

For fans of 1972’s “Match of the Century,” the film is everything you’re hoping for. Zwick’s movie is flawless right down to the re-enactment of the 1971 interview with Dick Cavett.
Bobby Fischer first makes waves in the elite world of chess as a 6-year-old whiz-kid from Brooklyn famous for his laser-like concentration and ability to dominate all challengers. By his teens, the boy wonder has gone from chess savant to international grandmaster, but his meteoric rise is punctuated by unpredictable personal behavior and escalating demands that raise hackles in the conservative chess establishment.

You might have noticed that superhero movies do a lot of business these days. That once frowned upon sub-genre consisting of cheesy one-liners and really bad costumes has somehow managed to brand itself with a reputation for pulling in excessive amounts of cash, resulting in box office hauls in the hundreds of millions… and sometimes the billions.
A movie has to create a real cultural explosion if it is to reach that elusive billion dollar mark, of course; it has to rip and resonant through the fabric of modern life, ensuring that either everyone has seen it (or at the very least, knows what it is). You know, a zeitgeist film. Three of the top 10 highest-grossing films ever made are superhero movies, by the way, which proves that – all things considered – this particular genre carries a massive punch.
But might there have been a bunch more billion dollar »

How do you go about adapting a supposedly unadapatable text? While faithful translations tend not to artistically successful, a faithful adaptation with fetishistic attention to detail can create something unique. While Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller had it comparatively easy when adapting Miller’s Sin City to screen as they more or less would just be recreating paintings but with moving parts, Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation painstakingly recreated much of Alan Moore’s tome by hand, capturing much of Moore’s world in camera. Snyder creates a lived-in and breathing universe, a key part to selling the idea to the audience of this time-hopping opus about the natural decline of superheroism. Watchmen is often accused of being too literal, speaking in the language of comics instead of cinema, but it is precisely this literal approach that makes Watchmen a stellar page-to-screen success. By being a “literal” film, it becomes personal, »
20. Story of Ricky (Lik wong) – Starring Siu-Wong Fan as the titular character, Riki Oh, based on a manga series which eventually became an anime, marks the end of an era of Japanese exploitation flicks, before the new generation of filmmakers such as Takashi Miike took over. Unlike Miike’s movies, or other recent entries such as Tokyo Gore Police, Riki Oh’s tone borders on comedy, played up by bad voice dubbing, foolish plot lines, cartoonish gore and eccentric characters (including a one-eyed assistant warden with a hook for a hand). For a prison film, the movie never seems mean-spirited, and if anything it masquerades as a bizarre superhero flick. The effects are the main draw – Riki Oh exists simply to showcase several outlandish set pieces, ramping up the level of violence, gore and action with each new scene. Made before the days of CGI, director Lam relies simply on practical effects, »
Batman is bad news for Gotham City and the only man who can stop him is The Joker.
According to Reddit user Generalzee, Heath Ledger's cackling supervillain should be credited with saving Gotham. An excerpt of the theory can be read below, for more head over here.
"Entire sections of the city were closed off due to madness, organised crime ran rampant, and the majority of important city officials were wildly corrupt.
"The city even tolerated a renegade vigilante who ran around wearing a rubber suit (Okay, special armour and carbon fiber, but they don't know that).
"Along comes the Joker and by the end of a very short time, almost all organised crime was eliminated, many corrupt officials were imprisoned or dead, »
Samuel Brace on bad movies on bad content…
There has to be consequences for making a bad movie. There just has to. Consequences for bad movies, bad TV shows, bad video games, whatever. If a studio produces a movie, a bad one, one that is below a certain standard, a standard that we are not entitled to but that we should expect, it’s imperative that we as a consumer provide the people behind the product with real repercussions.
Now, I’ve recently become quite proud of everyone, of movie goes the world over. We as a collective consumer decided that Fantastic Four was a bad movie and that we didn’t want it. No matter why the film turned out the way it did, if it was the directors fault, the studios, or both, we decided that ‘No’ would be our response. This was good, this is what needed to happen. »

It sounds like the internet must have some kind of obsession with turning heroes to villains and vice versa. Hot on the heels of a video essay saying that Daniel Larusso was actually the villain in The Karate Kid, and a fanmade trailer that turns Harry Potter into the villain of the fantasy franchise, a […]

Suicide Squad is bringing a new version of The Joker to the big screen for the first time since 2008's The Dark Knight. It will have been 8 years since Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance as the clown prince of crime. And people still can't stop talking about the actor's contribution to the comic book genre. Will Jared Leto be able to live up to the legacy? Maybe. But it's debatable wether or not fans will still be talking about him in 2024 as passionately as fans still talk about Heath Ledger in 2015. And a new fan theory has arrived to help push the point home.
This essay points to The Joker being the hero at the heart of The Dark Knight. And despite all the death and mayhem caused by The Joker, the author seems to have some evidence to back this up. Christopher Nolan is credited with creating the The »
The beauty of great film is that it when they end, they often leave room for debate as to what the audience has just witnessed. Seven years after its release, audiences continue to find new and intriguing ways to interpret the events in Christopher Nolan.s Batman epic The Dark Knight. According to a fan theory posited by Redditor Generalzee, Heath Ledger's Joker is actually the protagonist of the events that transpire in The Dark Knight. While he.s certainly unhinged, and leaves a trail of carnage in his wake, he does more to actually clean up the streets of Gotham City than Batman or Harvey Dent ever could. The theory reads: Entire sections of the city were closed off due to madness, organized crime ran rampant, and the majority of important city officials were wildly corrupt. The city even tolerated a renegade vigilante who ran around wearing a »
Jared Leto is going to have to do a lot to top Heath Ledger's take on The Joker, and you have to believe that the Dallas Buyers Club star will face plenty of comparisons to what we saw in The Dark Knight back in 2008 when Suicide Squad is released next year. His take is no doubt going to be very different, but now a new theory has surfaced which may just change how you view The Joker from Christopher Nolan's movie. Here's the theory from Reddit user GeneralZee (via Uproxx). Joker, although a lying psychopath, is actually the hero in The Dark Knight. Before the Joker, Gotham was a mess. Entire sections of the city were closed off due to madness, organized crime ran rampant, and the majority of important city officials were wildly corrupt. The city even tolerated a renegade vigilante who ran around wearing a rubber suit (Okay, »
Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Pierce Brosnan about turning down the opportunity to play The Dark Knight in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman movie, and now the former 007 has been speaking about the possibility of a gay James Bond.
“Sure. Why not?” said Brosnan, when asked by Details if he could picture the iconic spy as a gay man. “Actually, I don’t know how it would work. I don’t think Barbara Broccoli would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing. Let’s start with a great black actor being James Bond. Idris Elba certainly has the physicality, the charisma, the presence. But I think Daniel Craig will be there for a while yet.”

Now that Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Suicide Squad has wrapped production, many fans are looking forward to the next wave of footage, following the first trailer that debuted at Comic-Con last month. That trailer only gave us a brief glimpse at Jared Leto as The Joker, but with just less than a year before this superhero movie hits theaters, we'll surely be seeing a lot more of him and the rest of the Squad between now and then. Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, revealed in an interview with New York Daily News that she got so used to Jared Leto wearing The Joker makeup, complete with gold teeth and green hair, that seeing him out of costume scared her even more.
"What he's doing with the character is so cool. At first it was kind of confronting (to be up close) but now I'm so used to it, I »
West. Kilmer. Keaton. Clooney. Bale. Affleck. Brosnan? Speaking in an interview with Details, former 007 Pierce Brosnan revealed that he was once offered the chance to play The Caped Crusader for Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film.
At the time, Pierce Brosnan was one of a number of stars in line for the coveted part, rubbing shoulders with Mel Gibson – fresh off the Mad Max trilogy – Tom Selleck, Charlie Sheen, Kevin Costner and Bill Murray. Ultimately, though, it was a role that never really caught the actor’s attention, and here he reveals exactly why he passed up the chance.
“It was the beginning of these huge movies, and I just thought, Batman? Batman held such an indelible place in my own childhood, but I said something flippant to Tim Burton like, ‘Any guy who wears his underpants outside his trousers cannot be taken seriously.’ So, yeah.”
Low and behold, it was »

Jason Mitchell, who plays Easy-e in this weekend’s big opener in the UK, Straight Outta Compton, is in negotiations to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island. If he takes on the job, he will join the already cast Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and fellow ‘Compton’ star Corey Hawkins in the film, which kicks off shooting very soon.
Not much is known about the flick yet, other than that it follows “a team of explorers who venture into the mysterious, creature-laden isle that is also the home of the king of the apes.”
