Now that the wildly popular podcast Serial has come to a close, we're ready to watch the murder mystery unfold on the big screen -- and we know just who would play Jay, Sarah Koenig, Adnan Syed, Hae Min Lee and of course, Mr. S.
Photos: The 10 Biggest Breakout Stars of 2014
If you're unfamiliar with the true crime podcast that draws over 1 million listeners per week and is put on by the This American Life producers, Serial reexamines the 1999 murder of an 18-year-old Baltimore high school senior named Hae Min Lee.
Not long before Lee went missing, she had broken up with her boyfriend, then-17-year-old Adnan Syed, an honors student of the Muslim faith who was later tried and convicted for killing her. Adnan is now 33 and serving a life sentence for Hae's murder, but insists in a series of telephone interviews with producer Sarah Koenig that he's innocent.
Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.
Warning – potential spoilers…
So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

It is the end of the year which means we have all kinds of awards heading our way to tell us what the best of the best is. We decided to delay ours a little bit to allow the last of the years games to come out, and to also do something special. Every year we do a behind the scenes discussion on what the staff thinks should win each award. The winners then get announced and we tell you why we picked that game. This year we thought we would show you who our staff is nominating, and why they are brought up in these discussions. We will tell you the overall winners this Friday, but to kick things off here are Dustin’s top 5 games of the year!
Number 5 - Watch Dogs
Was the game perfect? No, and it was a bit overhyped through advertising. That being said »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…
So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Oscar Isaac is making his way from indie flicks to sure-to-be blockbuster hits with roles in 2014’s A Most Violent Year, writer-director J.C. Chandor’s Oscar hopeful, and J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is slated for a December 2015 release.
A Most Violent Year features Isaac as a husband and father trying to run an honest business in New York City in 1981, which is statistically the most violent year in the city’s history. The film opened AFI Fest and was recently voted best film by the National Board of Review. Isaac tied with Michael Keaton (Birdman) for best actor.
As for joining the Star Wars franchise, Isaac told IGN that the experience was “like living out a childhood dream. Being on those sets and being surrounded by those people — talking to Anthony Daniels, seeing him getting suited up, and Peter Mayhew »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”
So although it is a small role it sounds like it »

Filming has wrapped, but we’re still a little way off from an official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (unless it does come out this year, attached to The Hobbit: The Five Armies), but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill churning.
So what do have today? Robin? Doomsday? KGBeast?? Nope. According to Bad Ass Digest, there will be a major Batman character that will already be dead by the time the movie starts.
Still with us? Spoilers ahead…
So, the site is claiming that Detective Jim Gordon will already be dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with script calling for a shot of his memorial plate. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumour that the Batman character will already be dead, with the same site reporting that Robin would have bitten the dust as well.
What do we make of this new rumour? »

We asked some of our writers what their top 5 games of 2014 were, and have since compiled them into five parts. They will be released every two days, starting today, with each writers top 5 counting down through successive entries.
5) Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
Even with the controversy of the title and its release model, it’s hard to argue against the quality of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The graphics are some of the best ever seen, and serve handily as a showcase for the power of the new console generation. Moreover, the gameplay offers a staggering amount of depth, with literally dozens of ways to achieve the directives of your mission. While the plot can undoubtedly be a little self-serious, it does take the Metal Gear Solid mythos in a shocking new direction, and as an appetizer for next years Phantom Pain, Ground Zeroes serves as an engaging and enthralling precursor. »
Having been shooting since May, cinematographer Larry Fong has taken to Instagram to announce that filming has now wrapped on Warner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The production has taken in locations in Los Angeles, Detroit and Chicago, as well as scenes in New Mexico which were originally planned for Morocco.
Now, let’s see if we get that first teaser trailer which is rumoured to be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies…

That’s right – after months of speculation, DC have finally announced the main cast for their supervillain team-up movie Suicide Squad. Comic book favourites Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang and Joker will all appear. Which is why we appear so serious.
In other supervillain news, the main foe of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been uncovered and the title and cast for the new James Bond movie has been announced, along with a mighty find automobile (spoiler: it doesn’t double up as a submarine). Find out the answers to all that and more in this week’s episode of the Movie Newsgasm below.
Fmtv will be back next week with our Jurassic World trailer video review and again on Friday for the Movie Newsgasm. »

A year has come and gone, and Sony’s PlayStation 4 has had an undeniably spectacular first 12 months, arriving amid sky-high expectations, and for the most part living up to them (at least as far as the hardware is concerned). It’s been a fascinating year to be a gamer regardless of which platform you own, but the PS4 has had an especially colourful time since launch, enjoying the good, enduring the bad and trying to flee from the ugly side of the video game industry.
Financial glory, an interesting inversion of the typical next-gen model, one hilariously near-sighted business decision, and a host of games that both exceeded expectations and fell far short of them. This is the first year of the PS4 in a nutshell, largely a series of innovative and interesting highs, sure, but also unquestionably saddled with a few embarrassing and less-than-stellar lows as well. »

According to Badass Digest – who are usually spot on with “scoops” – Doomsday will indeed be in the main villain of the piece. Not only that, but Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will have a henchman who is called Anatoli Knyazev in the script. Hardcore DC fans will take pride in knowing that this is in fact DC villain KGBeast, who has battled with Batman in the past. It is unlikely that we’ll see KGBeast in action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are always other films…

Welcome To Issue 72!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
Wonder Woman has a director in Michelle MacLaren! This woman has made some good TV from Co-ep on the X-Files where she tried her hand at directing, through Breaking Bad with fellow X-alum Vince Gilligan to the most impactful director on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Now, she’ll be stepping into Warner Bro’s DC Universe for Gal Godot’s headlining effort in 2017.
Over the years, Oscar Isaac is an actor that’s been constrained to supporting roles, having cropped up in films like Drive, Robin Hood and Zack Synder’s Sucker Punch. But when the Coen Brothers placed him front and center for their wonderful, critically-acclaimed drama Inside Llewyn Davis, it was almost a bygone conclusion that the actor’s career would receive a monumental shot in the arm.
Fast forward to today, and Isaac has landed himself a number of eye-catching roles including Alex Garland’s promising sci-fi Ex Machina, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, more recently, X-Men: Apocalypse. But before diving into the genre of science fiction, the actor is set to play Abel Morales in J.C. Chandor’s upcoming drama, A Most Violent Year, which recently debuted an all-new featurette that takes a closer look at the concept of the American Dream.

Taylor Swift doing "Blank Space" is a hard act to follow, but she might've gotten one-upped at this year's AMAs. Wearing a bright red pair of Lolita sunglasses, Charli Xcx hit the stage to perform a medley of songs from her upcoming second album Sucker, "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules." American Music Awards: Best and Worst Moments With the stage dressed up to resemble a high school prom, Charli delivered her top 10 hit and had the whole audience singing along. Even better, it was a one-two Sucker punch -- She tore off her prom gown to

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has moved from Detroit to Chicago to do a final month’s filming before post production. Last night the set of the film was getting ready to shoot the Wayne’s murder scene, which is an iconic moment from the Batman story. It has now been revealed that this scene was shot in IMAX.
Twitter user Mike Eisenberg, who is a Chicago local and runs a production company, was near the set last night and tweeted about it. He first said “Lots of people waiting in cold to watch scene film, but it looked like the IMAX cameras were not handling the cold well. Could be a while.”
He then confirmed that they were using IMAX cameras to shoot the iconic scene: “I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman v Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras. »
