New TV spot for Batman prequel series Gotham

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen one TV spot that gave us a peek at the villains of the upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham [which you can see here], and now Fox has debuted another, this time focussing on the character of Detective Jim Gordon, played by Ben McKenzie; check it out below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Gotham is set to air in the Fall, with Ben McKenzie (The O.C.) starring as »

Danny Cannon on following Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy with Gotham

6 July 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Later this year we’ll be heading back to Gotham City for the first time since Christopher Nolan brought the curtain down on The Dark Knight Trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises as Fox launches its Batman prequel series Gotham. Speaking to IGN, pilot director and executive producer Danny Cannon (Judge Dredd) has spoken about the daunting task of having to follow the acclaimed trilogy.

“It was daunting at first, because you’re following three masterpieces. So I settled with the fact that — what we talked about when we first pitched this was, ’20 years before Batman.’ A world that’s starting to see a corrupt city rotting from the inside. It reminded us of New York in the late ’70s and early ’80s. That was our first meeting, and we kind of spring-boarded off of that. Luckily, that’s uncharted territory. Hopefully in the atmospherics of Gotham we created a romantic, »

I Need a Heroine: Adèle Blanc-Sec and the Dearth of Action Women in Film

3 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Royal Observatory Greenwich kicked off a trio of summer steampunk screenings with a treat last week – Luc Besson’s The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec. The more-than-slightly bonkers tale of the brusque authoress and adventurer is a HeyUGuys favourite. But when diva, dinosaur and mummies danced across the dome of the Peter Harrison Planetarium this time they provoked a sudden melancholy. And a question: Where have all the action women gone?

When little boys begin to look for heroes on the silver screen a deluge of options sweeps them away. Cowboys, astronauts, superheroes and gods. Leading men with sufficient derring-do to power a thousand dreams and aspirations. Of course little girls are equally able to dream of Superman but they wake up and grow up in a reality that undermines those nighttime fantasies. Disempowerment is an insidious and deadly foe, folks! Adèle Blanc-Sec is a singular character. But she ought not to be. »

"Transformers" Producer Not A Fan Of Critics

2 July 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Michael Bay proved surprisingly diplomatic the other week when he was asked about film critics and their universal panning of his often highly successful "Transformers" franchise. Bay essentially said he used to be bothered by it, not so much now, and actually welcomes it as it "makes me think, and it keeps me on my toes."

Series producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura was also asked by ScreenCrush the other day about the criticism of the franchise, and the just released 'Age of Extinction' in particular. His answer was far more condescending and dismissive:

"Well, first of all, I think every filmmaker cares what critics think because, you know, you're being judged. I think if someone says they don't care, baloney. Does it affect the gross of the movie? Probably a little bit. But, I think the problem with critics and the big movies in general is they don't understand the format. »

The Giver, the sci-fi period piece starring Jeff Bridges, has gotten itself a new poster. It can be viewed below, in anticipation of its August 15 release:

We nearly did a double take when we spotted Chris Evans's stunt double on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron in London yesterday (June 24).

Dressed in full Captain America costume, he was joined on set by fellow body doubles for both Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth, as filming for Joss Whedon's Marvel movie hits the halfway mark.

We're seeing double as we bring you more stars and their stunt performing shadows below:

24 June 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here are some of the hottest action heroines who could totally rule in the upcoming 'Predator' remake!

News broke today on The Hollywood Reporter that another beloved 80s classic is on the slate for a trendy millennial reboot. This time, it's the iconic action horror Predator, and it's reportedly set to be helmed by Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director/writer Shane Black, who also recently created Iron Man 3!

The original Predator starred an ensemble of classic macho '80s musclemen, led by Arnold Schwarzenegger and co-starring Rocky's Carl Weathers and the pro-wrestler-turned-Minnesota-Governor Jesse Ventura.

Mr. Freeze to show up in Gotham?

24 June 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham is shaping up to be quite the exploration of the Caped Crusader’s rogues gallery. What began as a telling of future police commissioner James Gordon’s origin has seemingly morphed into a larger exploration of what turned some of Gotham City’s citizens into the villains we know and love. We already know that Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), Edward Nigma (Cory Michael Smith), and Ivy Pepper (Clare Foley) will be featured, with characters like the Joker and Scarecrow planned to appear at some point in the future.

In a recent interview with HitFix, pilot episode director Danny Cannon revealed that he wants to bring one of Batman’s… cooler villains into the fold as well: the mysterious Dr. Victor Fries, the future pun-spouting criminal with a heart of ice, Mr. Freeze.

Ewan McGregor To Front Phillip Noyce's American Pastoral

23 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Australian director Phillip Noyce has been struggling to get his adaptation of American Pastoral off the ground for 11 years and counting. But it seems like at long last he's gearing up for production, having wrangled Ewan McGregor as his leading man. Coming Soon first snagged this curious bit of casting news while speaking with Phillip Noyce about his soon-to-open science-fiction drama The Giver, an adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel. Noyce, who has previously helmed such A-lister-fronted features as Angelina Jolie's Salt, Denzel Washington's The Bone Collector, and Harrison Ford's Clear and Present Danger, confessed that the inability to find the right actor for American Pastoral's lead role has been the main cause of its delays. However, with Ewan McGregor now on board, Noyce expects American Pastoral will roll into production by early 2015. American Pastoral will be based on the noteworthy novel by American author Philip Roth. »

Phillip Noyce Finally Directing Long-Gestating 'American Pastoral'

18 June 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For 11 years now, an adaptation of Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel American Pastoral has been trying to get off the ground, thanks to the efforts of Salt director Phillip Noyce (who has the sci-fi adaptation of The Giver coming later this year). One iteration was said to have included Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, but that never came to fruition and floated around as a rumor for years. Now Noyce seems to be on the right track as he tells ComingSoon that American Pastoral will be his next project, and it will be Ewan McGregor (August: Osage County, The Impossible) starring in the lead role. More below! McGregor (who has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in A Million Ways to Die in the West), has taken a wide variety of interesting roles, and this one is no different.
