#LukeForNewt: Fans campaign for In the Flesh star in Fantastic Beasts

13 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jk Rowling will revisit the world of Harry Potter with new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and, according to producer David Heyman, the search to find Newton Scamander will begin early next year.

Fans already have their own ideas about who they'd like to see in the role of Rowling's Magizoologist and have started their own social media campaign championing an upcoming British actor for the part.

In the Flesh and Suspects star Luke Newberry is at the centre of the #LukeForNewt Twitter hashtag, which has spawned creative photoshop posters and vocal support for the 24-year-old.

Newberry is largely unknown to the wider filmgoing public, but that might not be much of a barrier. The original Harry Potter trio were unseen actors before being cast in Philosopher's Stone. Henry Cavill, like Newberry, was also a TV regular before landing the lead role in Man of Steel.

Star Wars, Jurassic Park, more: 9 original trailers for classic movies

27 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The huge level of hype surrounding movie trailers doesn't seem like it's going to subside anytime soon. "First looks" and teaser premieres seem to have more currency in film fandom than the actual movies themselves these days.

With the big unveiling of the Jurassic World teaser this week and the incoming promo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Digital Spy has decided to look back through the archives to see how the art of cutting a trailer has changed over the years.

1. Star Wars

"Somewhere in space... this may all be happening right now!" This opening voiceover doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "a galaxy far, far away", and without the John Williams score or polished sound mix it just doesn't really feel like Star Wars at all. Still, this first-ever trailer didn't put off audiences from seeing the finished film in the summer of 1977.

2. Jurassic Park »

Jurassic World trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

26 November 2014 4:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth team react…

Released upon the world yesterday (a couple of days early no less!), we finally got our first look at Jurassic World. But what did our the Flickering Myth writing and editorial staff think of it?

Kris Wall: Dinosaurs and Chris Pratt – Shut Up And Take My Money. I’m more than a little bit excited for this, even more so than I am for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Mike P Williams: Right up there as one of my most anticipated for 2015 – alongside Inside Out and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Simon Columb: This could me a brilliant reinvention for a new audience. The trailer hints at some nice links to the previous films yet there is a touch of Transformers-esque gloss… the story may be trite. Chris Pratt seems solid but his ‘trailer lines’ are a little on the nose. As long as the »

'Justic League: Dark' Script Is Finished Says Guillermo Del Toro

26 November 2014 1:10 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The script for Justice League: Dark was turned in to Warner Bros earlier today. The news was confirmed by Guillermo del Toro, who has been attached to the project since 2013. The film adaptation is set to be called Dark Universe.

Justice League: Dark is a relatively new team in the comics, made up of many familiar but also odd faces (to comic fans at least). It is essentially a team made up of supernatural-based characters that wouldn’t really fit in with the proper Justice League. Characters featured in the team include Deadman, Zatanna, and John Constantine (who currently has his own TV show). Think of these guys as more Hellboy and less Avengers, which is perfect considering that the man behind the Hellboy films is also behind this one.

The film is still in the very early stages of production so anything can happen. Aside from Man of Steel »

New Look At Batman v Superman New Mexico Set (Video)

25 November 2014 10:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Anytime a big-budget Hollywood film like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rolls into a small town you can expect the local news stations to cover the impact it has on the community. Last night, Krqe News 13 ran such a story. The video contains new aerial footage of the set, which looks quite a bit like Wonder Woman's Amazonian home of Themyscira (aka Paradise Island). There's also a nice bit about the Man of Steel dropping by a local restaurant and posing for photos with star-struck servers. That Henry Cavill seems to be just as much of a Superman in real life as he is on-screen. Am I right or am I right? Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. »

10 Signs Warner Bros. Have No Clue About Batman V Superman

25 November 2014 4:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

It’s nearing the end of the year, which normally leads to everyone looking forward to the next. And while 2015 boasts some of the biggest movies ever – it will somehow contain Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Bond 24 and The Hungers Games: Mockingjay Part 2 – this time eyes are gazing further into the future.

That’s right – it’s only the end of 2014 and yet we’re already thinking of 2016, particularly with regard to Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a film that’s enticing and depressing in equal measure.

When first announced at Comic-Con everyone got excited for Zack Snyder’s superhero showdown, instantly forgetting the lacklustre Man Of Steel, but, as time’s gone by, various developments have revealed a confused production that pushes the idea Warner Bros. really don’t have a clue what to do with their D.C. »

Christian Bale Had A Moment When Affleck Was Cast As Batman

24 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"...and he's using your Tumbler to drive Jennifer Garner's kids to nursery school, Master Bruce."

Now that his days as the Dark Knight are behind him, Christian Bale can look back fondly at what it was like to be Batman for a whole new generation of fans. As his trilogy of films came to a close with Christopher Nolan, there was an overarching sense of finality to his time in the role. He was ready to hang up the cowl and move on. He was so ready to move on that he even reportedly turned down all sorts of lucrative offers from Warner Bros to return for their current slate of Justice League-related films. 

Something funny happened, though, when his formal replacement in the iconic role was announced last year. He realized there was a part of him that had, indeed, kept the possibility of a return alive and, »

Christian Bale Was Bummed When Ben Affleck Was Cast as Batman

24 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you thought you were bummed when Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman, you've got nothing on Christian Bale.

Bale, who played the Caped Crusader in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, revealed in a recent interview with Empire Magazine (transcribed by ComicBookMovie.com) that he was shocked by the announcement of Affleck's casting in Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" follow-up, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" -- and thought that perhaps he would one day don the character's cowl again.

"I've got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, 'Oh go on... Let's do another,'" Bale told Empire. "So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour."

Batman Vs Superman: 35 Revealing Images Every Fan Should See

24 November 2014 6:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

It was only ever a matter of time before DC and Warner Bros. bumped their heads together and realised that Superman simply cannot do the business on his own at the box office, no matter what the quality of the film. In that respect we were always on a count-down to the big reveal that comic book fans would finally get to see the two biggest comic book icons of all time face-off in the Versus movie event to end all Versus movie events.

The film itself – announced on the back of disappointing box office figures for Man Of Steel – won’t land until March 2016 but with Henry Cavill having announced that he is done filming, excitement will inevitably ramp up further as we head towards the last twelve months before release.

So far, information comes at a premium: plot details are non-existent beyond alleged leaks and informed guesses, »

Christian Bale Talks Ben Affleck As Batman And Whether He Contemplated A Return

23 November 2014 8:52 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Despite the voice, Christian Bale is widely considered to be the best big screen Batman to date, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck has a lot to live up to after the British actor's superb take on the iconic DC Comics superhero in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. Talking about his upcoming movie with Sir Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Bale was asked to compare the role of Moses to Batman. "It's a little embarrassing to compare Moses to Batman," Bale laughed. "There are similarities, you know, tragic beginning and then a heroic future. But Moses is a little more violent. I'm sure if there'd been guns around at that time, Bruce Wayne might have had a chance." As for how he felt to learn that Gone Girl's Ben Affleck had been cast as the »

Why I Think Man of Steel Is Great

22 November 2014 5:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Man of Steel has been polarized by a lot of critics and it has like a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes. Although it seems like most critics don't really like a lot of Zack Snyder's work. Like 300 which everyone would agree was amazing they gave it a 60%. Also, Watchmen which I really enjoyed they gave it a 64%, most people might not agree with me on that but I still really enjoyed Watchmen. With that said though I really liked Man of Steel a lot and it's the best Superman movie in opinion. I know a lot you will be like, "What about the first two Christopher Reeve Superman movies?", and yes they're great and classics, but let's face it they're extremely dated and they didn't have the technology back then to show everyone Superman can do on the big screen. If Man of Steel suffered from anything, it suffered from some of the most unfair, »

Shawshank Redemption celebrates 20th anniversary: The cast then and now

21 November 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying.

The Shawshank Redemption celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and director Frank Darabont reunited for a special Academy screening of the film this week.

Digital Spy goes then and now with the cast of the beloved drama to find out what happened to them in the years since Shawshank's original release.

Tim Robbins (Andy Dufresne)

Already a well-established and respected actor by the time he won the role of Andy Dufresne, Tim Robbins saw his career surge in the wake of Shawshank. He bagged the role after Kevin Costner, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt turned it down, but their loss was his gain.

Post-Shawshank he starred in films ranging from Mission to Mars, to High Fidelity and Green Lantern. His biggest career success »

10 Most Ludicrous Powers Displayed By Superman

20 November 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Superman is, without any shadow of a doubt, the most famous of all comic book superheroes.

Whether people have read the Kryptonian’s titular comic books or not, they’ve definitely heard of the Man of Steel and they know his basic powers – he can fly, he’s super-strong and he’s super-fast. Most people tend to be aware of his heat vision powers and freeze breath as well.

But that’s everything he can do, right? Wrong. Superman has displayed all kinds of esoteric powers in his various incarnations across different sources of media. He’s far from simply being the archetype superhero with the basic powers that the vast majority of superheroes tend to possess.

There was a time in the comic books when Superman used to pull powers out of the bag like a magician pulling a rabbit out of his hat – they just came »
