As ever, spoilers for the episode follow...
‘Young Harvey Dent!” I said to myself, excitedly. It’s about time: Two-Face is the most iconic of all Batman villains and his duality is as much a metaphor for the struggle between man and vigilante as it is a tragedy with which we can sympathise. Joker might be more emblemic, more primordial, more mythological – the yang to Batman’s yin – but Harvey Dent and Two-Face are the flip-side of the two-headed coin to Bruce Wayne and Batman. I have been wanting to see his younger self in action since the pilot and now is definitely the right time to introduce him.
Oddly enough, the episode appears to have a bit of a multiple personality disorder of its own: it doesn’t seem able to focus on any one aspect of the show for too long and it keeps »

The competition movie line-up has been revealed for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, which runs from January 22nd to February 1st 2015. Below the announcement video you'll find the U.S. and World Competition categories, as well as the Next section.
Out of the 12,166 submissions that the festival received this year only 185 were selected. It looks like there are going to be a lot of great films this year. I always enjoy going to Sundance because you never know what film gems are just waiting to be seen.
U.S. Dramatic Competition
Presenting the world premieres of 16 narrative feature films, the Dramatic Competition offers Festivalgoers a first look at groundbreaking new voices in American independent film.

Today the first wave of titles playing at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival were announced and while the majority of the titles are new to me the names in front of the camera most certainly are not as you'll see the likes of Michael Fassbender, Nicole Kidman, Saoirse Ronan, Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, James Marsden, Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Jemaine Clement, Sarah Silverman, Toni Collette, Vincent Cassell and many, many more among the titles featured. I have collected several photos from many of the films playing the festival, which will take place from January 22 - February 1 in Utah next year. Today's selection includes the U.S. Dramatic Competition, U.S. Documentary Competition, World Cinema Dramatic Competition, World Cinema Documentary Competition and Next program. I'll be adding a few more pictures soon enough, but for now, have a look and see what stands out. »

In all, 66 films were announced in this initial lineup, with the Premieres and Documentary Premieres arriving December 8 and the Short Film slate arriving December 9.
Among the lineup, as always, are some intriguing prospects.

A funny thing happened on the way to Park City: The general upsurge of comedians in the independent film world wound up playing a major role in shaping the 2015 Sundance Film Festival program, per fest director John Cooper and director of programming Trevor Groth.
The effect can be felt across all aspects of the feature lineup, which boasts a total of 118 films (103 of them world premieres), but especially among the 16 titles set to screen in the always buzzy U.S. dramatic competition. That’s one of the four juried slates (including U.S. documentary, World Cinema dramatic and World Cinema documentary) unveiled today along with the festival’s noncompetitive Next section.
“There are probably more comedies in the dramatic competition than ever before,” Groth said, citing such titles as “Results,” a romantic laffer from mumblecore auteur Andrew Bujalski, with Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders as a pair of personal trainers; Patrick Brice’s “The Overnight, »

Sundance Film Festival director John Cooper and head of programming Trevor Groth have unleashed their first volley of films in what will be a 118-strong line-up overall culled from 12,166 submissions. Of these, 103 features are world premieres. The festival will run January 22 to February 1.
Us Dramatic Competition includes Craig Zobel’s post-apocalytpic tale Z For Zachariah starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine; Jack Black in comedy The D Train; and Kristen Wiig in the 1970s San Francisco-set coming-of-age story The Diary Of A Teenage Girl.
Other likely highlights are Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s The Stanford Prison Experiment starring Billy Crudup and Ezra Miller; and Saoirse Ronan in Stockholm, Pennsylvania, about a young woman who returns to live with her parents after she is freed from her abductor of 17 years »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, the latest effort from DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, casts Batman aside (for the most part) in order to focus on Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad. The anti-hero team has gotten quite a bit of press lately for its planned live-action adaptation, so now's a great time to take a look at one of the Suicide Squad's animated iterations, now available on Blu-ray. While Batman: Assault on Arkham takes the opportunity to cast Batman villains in lead roles, it doesn't come close to exploring all the potential those characters offer. The voice acting is spot on as usual and the animation style is a visual joy, but the half-baked plot and immature on-screen antics makes this a weak adaptation rather than a must-have addition to your collection. Hit the jump for our Batman: Assault on Arkham Blu-ray review. Feature: The Good Any time the villains get to take center stage, »

Ever since Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment finally announced their upcoming slate of superhero films for the next few years, quite a large amount of attention has been given to David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The comic adaptation will introduce audiences to a group of imprisoned supervillains, brought together to earn their redemption by working for the government on impossible suicide missions.
It is believed that Suicide Squad will showcase some of DC Comics’ lesser known characters such as Deadshot, Black Spider, King Shark and Amanda Waller. However, recent reports have indicated that David Ayer (Fury) has re-written the existing screenplay from Justin Marks to include the likes of Lex Luthor and The Joker. It has long been rumoured that Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy are in negotiations to join Ayer’s team of imprisoned antagonists, with Jesse Eisenberg also expected to reprise his role as Lex Luthor »

Seven of Nine is two of three.
Meaning, TVLine has learned that Jeri Ryan will fill the plum NCIS role of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ never-before-seen second ex-wife, Rebecca, who will be introduced in a January 2015 episode of the long-running CBS drama.
NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg first revealed to TVLine the plan to meet Gibbs’ missing ex last January, saying, “I can promise you that it is probably going to get touched on in Season 12.” Introducing the character, he effused, promises to be “[storyline] gold.”
Bill Chais and Kevin Falls, who both previously worked together as writers on the short-lived Emmy-nominated James Woods legal drama Shark, teamed up in 2011 for an all-new legal drama, Franklin & Bash, which follows lawyers and lifelong friends Jared Franklin and Peter Bash, a pair of unconventional lawyers whose M.O. typically involves them doing everything a lawyer shouldn’t (drinking in court, hitting on clients) in order to win their cases. Once such case sees the duo score legal win against the large and prestigious law firm Infield Daniels, which brings them to the attention of Stanton Infield, one of the said firm’s major partners, who recruits the pair to work for the very firm they beat in court – bringing both their legal skills and their sense of »

"Suicide Squad" may be the smartest title on the entire slate of DC Comic movies announced recently by Warner Bros. With David Ayer onboard to direct, this is the story of how some of the nastiest bad guys in the DC Universe are pressed into service to do something for the government. It can play rougher than other DC movies and it would seem appropriate. One of the key characters in any "Suicide Squad" movie should be Harley Quinn, the Joker's psychotic girlfriend, but I'm not sure if they're including her or not. Just because there is a rumor that Margot Robbie is being courted to star in the film, that doesn't mean they're using Quinn. I'd love to see Robbie play her, I think. That sounds terrifying. And sort of awesome. She could also easily be Amanda Waller, the doctor who puts the team together. But that's assuming she's »

Today sees the release of Zombeavers, in which a group of spring breakers are terrorized by a horde of killer beavers. It’s sounds ridiculous (because it is, of course) but these bloodthirsty little buggers continue a long tradition of awesome animals on the big screen. In case you’ve forgotten, here’s a countdown of some of cinema’s greatest ever beasts.
10. Flying Monkeys – The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
What’s more terrifying than an evil pointy-nosed witch? Try an evil pointy-nosed witch with an army of flying monkeys! In the original Oz books, the winged simians were mischievous but intelligent creatures, but by the time they received their big screen debut they’d mutated into the stuff of nightmares.
As Dorothy and her gang find themselves in a darkened forest, the Wicked Witch of the West sends her sinister army to monkey-nap them, and they are returned to the Witch’s castle pronto. »

Rupert Sanders is apparently targeting Scarlett Johansson for the lead role in Ghost In The Shell. It was earlier reported that Margot Robbie, of The Wolf Of Wall Street fame, was up for the part, but perhaps due to the success of Lucy and The Avengers, Johansson is the action star of choice. Although Robbie is still aiming for the DC adaptation of Suicide Squad which is looking to acquire Will Smith and Tom Hardy for the DC adaptation centred on super villains carrying out black op missions for the government.
Plans for a live action Hollywood version of manga/anime Ghost In The Shell have been in the pipeline for a very long time. First released in 1989, the film focuses on a division of police investigating cyber crimes. From the mind of Masamune Shirow, it was certainly before its time and went on to influence works such as The Matrix. »

And here’s a rundown of the special features…

A few weeks ago, Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer was announced as the frontrunner to direct Warner Brothers’ upcoming Suicide Squad film. Now, that news has been made official. As part of the announcement of Warner Bros.’ massive DC Comics slate, studio head Kevin Tsujihara revealed Ayer’s involvement in the film during a meeting with investors this morning.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know much about the project other than the fact that it will hit theaters even sooner than expected, a mere five months after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. While many (including myself) thought that WB would hold off on introducing the all-villain team until after bigger films like Justice League, the studio seems to be moving full-steam ahead with this lesser-known property.
Of course, the big question now regards who the team will consist of. The roster of supervillains-turned-mercenaries has shifted a lot over the years, »
