Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #2

Concept Art for "Superman: Flyby"

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at what into relaunching the Batman and Superman franchises, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 1997. Batman And Robin came out and was a huge black eye for Warner Bros., effectively turning what was a once promising franchise into a punchline. It was the fourth installment of that series, and it killed Batman almost as definitively as the fourth Superman film had grounded the Man of Steel exactly 10 years earlier. 

But before we can look at how Warner Bros. planned to rebound its DC properties post-1997, we have to »

Walden To Develop "Billion Dollar Spy"

10 May 2016 5:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Walden Media is set to develop, finance and produce a film adaptation of David E. Hoffman's "The Billion Dollar Spy" while Ben August ("Remember") is attached to write the script.

The story follows an ordinary man, Adolf G. Tokachev, who became the Pentagon's most valuable spy during the last years of the Cold War.

Tolkachev, a senior engineer in a top-secret Soviet aerospace laboratory, used his high-level access to hand over pages of technical secrets, highly classified blueprints, diagrams and reports on radars, avionics, guidance systems and fighter designs.

Tolkachev and his handlers succeeded for years in eluding the feared Kgb in its own backyard, until the day a shocking betrayal put them all at risk. Akiva Goldsman ("Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "I Am Legend") is producing.

10 Reasons Batman V Superman’s Ending Is The Stupidest Part Of The Film

29 March 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Picture

If there’s one rule of DC comic book movies that Batman V Superman proves, it’s that Warner Bros. will always get their way eventually. After all, they’ve been trying to get these two heroes to duke it out on screen for over a decade (a script was written in 2003 and a foreshadowing easter egg inserted into I Am Legend in 2006), despite the concept not being a big part of the characters in print. In addition to the disappointing titular bout though, Dawn Of Justice also sees the studio finally live out another one of their biggest fantasies of the past quarter-century.

Back in the late nineties, Warner were very keen to get a reboot of Superman off the ground, bringing in Tim Burton as director and Jon Peters to produce. As reported by several writers who worked on the project – including super Super-fan Kevin Smith »

The producers of Batman V Superman talk to us about deleted scenes, building the DC universe and more...

Director Zack Snyder hasn't chosen the easiest route when it comes to following up his 2013 film, Man Of Steel. Rather than follow Superman on the next stage of his path as the defender of truth, justice and the American way, Snyder's brought us Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice - an explosive collision of two comic book titans and the launchpad for at least six DC movies still to come. Assisting Snyder along the way are producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven. Snyder's been Zack's producer partner since 300 in 2007, while Roven's been involved with Warner's DC movie adaptations since Batman Begins back in 2005.

On the eve of Batman V Superman's release, we sat down with Snyder and Roven to talk about the process of making Batman V Superman, the »

Seven Movie Trailers That Were Way, Way Better than the Actual Movie

16 February 2016 7:24 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

No matter how awful a movie is, it will always have its defenders. I’m still astonished at how many people actually liked I Am Legend. So theoretically, the barrage of hate I got should discourage me from daring to say other movies suck in a public forum, but you know what? I don’t care. As long as you can coherently argue why something is terrible, you’ve got every right to your opinion. And as I’ve said before, my opinion always happens to be right. I point you to the year 2008.  This was a year that had some amazingly good

Drive-In Dust Offs: Burn, Witch, Burn

13 February 2016 10:49 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Movies dealing with witchcraft are usually lumped in with the supernatural, so they’re sometimes unfairly shoved to the back of the horror line. However, I truly believe they should have their own category. With supernatural horror, forces are typically thrust upon a protagonist, revenge for misbegotten deeds perpetrated upon the deceased, or righting of wrongs from beyond the pale. Where witchcraft sets itself apart is in the approach – yes, it does deal with the unseen, unkempt and unwanted from beyond – but these forces are usually conjured by a human, for good or nefarious purposes. It’s definitely a case of “don’t call us, we’ll call you”, and you won’t find a finer example of filmic witchery than 1962’s Burn, Witch, Burn.

A British production (Independent Artists), Burn, Witch, Burn was picked up and distributed in North America by American International Pictures. In the U.K., it »

Revoltin’ Reviews: Pieces, The Mutilator, and The Vincent Price Collection III

12 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

This one’s going to be a cake walk, creeps: two vintage 80s slasher flicks and some Vincent Price. Sometimes ancient talismans procured in questionable eBay lots really do work as advertised!

Pieces

•             Release Date: Available March 1st on Special edition Blu-ray (2 Blu-rays + CD)

•             Written By: Dick Randall, Joe D’Amato

•             Directed By: Juan Piquer Simón

•             Starring: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Braña, Paul L. Smith

Pieces had a weird effect on me when I first saw it. I remember thinkin’ it was one of the greatest slasher films I’d e’er slapped my eerie eyeballs upon, as it pretty much had everything that makes the genre so outrageous, only amped up to the nth degree. I also remember thinkin’ “Man, I need to own this film right away; it’s the bat’s knees!” I then sat down, ate a slice of pizza (maybe it was a sandwich… »

"Hated It": Josh Brolin Talks ‘Jonah Hex,’ Says They Reshot 66 Pages In 12 Days

9 February 2016 7:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's certainly another lifetime ago for DC Entertainment, and the comic-book-movie world in general, but back in 2010, audiences and critics saw how ambitious projects could misfire badly with "Jonah Hex." "Crank" duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor were hired to write and direct the movie in 2007, but a few a months before filming was slated to begin, they exited the project, with the unlikely choice of Jimmy Hayward ("Horton Hears A Who!") stepping in. Production was pushed back slightly, the script was reworked, but the film ran into even more problems, and at one point, "I Am Legend" director Francis Lawrence was brought in for reshoots. The result was a disaster, and Josh Brolin is candid about his not-so-fond memories of the production. Read More: The 20 Worst Summer Blockbusters Ever “Oh, ‘Jonah Hex,’ hated it.

Sam Raimi To Direct Remake Of Jacques Audiard's 'A Prophet'

A few years back, it was announced that Neal H. Moritz, the producer behind cinematic acts of subtlety like "Furious 7," "Jack the Giant Slayer,"  "Battle: Los Angeles," "S.W.A.T," "Stealth," and "I Am Legend," was going to push ahead with a remake of Jacques Audiard's Oscar-nominated "A Prophet." It sent a chill down our spine, but luckily, there was no further news.....until today.... Read More: Novelist Denis Lehane Tapped To Pen Remake Of 'A Prophet' Deadline report that Sam Raimi is in early talks to direct the movie. Not the most obvious choice, but an interesting one, and let's not forget, Raimi has shown a penchant for surprises (check out his lean and nifty little thriller "A Simple Plan").

‘Harry Potter’ Producer David Heyman Stays Humble With PGA Honor

22 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With an impressive list of producer credits to his name, including all eight Harry Potter films, David Heyman, who will be honored by the Producers Guild of America with its David O. Selznick Award for career achievement, remains humble and appreciative.

“I’ve been very fortunate and I’m all too aware that I’ve had opportunities not afforded to people who are every bit as talented — and people think that you know a lot more about how this business works than you actually do,” says the London-born, Harvard-educated producer.

Heyman followed the Potter franchise with “Gravity,” earning him an Oscar nomination for best picture and a shared PGA Selznick Award for top movie when it tied with “12 Years a Slave.” He also produced “I Am Legend,” “Yes Man,” “Paddington” and “The Light Between Oceans,” starring Michael Fassbender, and is shooting the Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. »

Box Office Democracy: Norm of the North

20 January 2016 3:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Norm of the North is the worst movie I’ve ever seen in a theater. There was not a single aspect of this movie that indicated that any more than the minimum amount of effort was expended by anyone in the production process. It’s a lifeless dud all the way around; the kind of movie that had me wondering if I could get away with walking out after the first half hour and reviewing the delicious burrito I ate for lunch instead. But I endured, and instead I’m here to tell you about this wretched disaster of a movie.

I have no stomach for lazy animation. Norm of the North is some of the worst animation work I’ve ever seen. The character models have a bizarre lack of detail and the textures often feel slapped on. There’s a killer whale character in the first act of »
