Robert Downey Jr. is the New Dr. Doolittle

21 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plus: A news roundup, the best Fsr articles, and five perfect shots.

It might be difficult to remember, but Robert Downey Jr. is not just Tony Stark. For the last decade the actor’s filmography has been dominated by the role, with a little Sherlock Holmes thrown in for good measure, but other than that there have been very few gigs the actor has taken outside the franchise world.

But now there comes word, via THR, that Downey has booked his first major non-Marvel role in a little bit, and it’s quite the departure: Doctor Doolittle.

You know the good Doctor, he who can communicate with the animals and uses this power to, I don’t know, doctor them? Rex Harrison (My Fair Lady) first brought the character to life on the silver screen back in 1967, and of course there’s the Eddie Murphy franchise complete with a couple spinoffs that started in 1998, but if the »

20 March 2017 3:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Robert Downey Jr. returning as Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War next year, and another Sherlock Holmes movie in the works, the actor has still found time to pick up yet another potential franchise. Universal Pictures has landed the rights to Doctor Dolittle, bringing Robert Downey Jr. in as the title character in a new project entitled The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle. The studio picked up the rights to this franchise in a competitive bidding situation, with a number of studios vying for this film package last week.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Stephen Gaghan (Gold) has signed on direct and write the script, which had an earlier draft written by Tom Shepherd. The story will be based on the series of children's books by Hugh Lofting, which followed the title character who could speak with animals.

Hans Zimmer Breaks Down The Difference Between His Two Bats

17 March 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Love him or hate him, Hans Zimmer has quite the presence in the world of cinema. If you're here, reading this, then you've definitely heard his music, whether it be that from Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and even The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's just a sampling of his work! Whew!

Though he's not the only composer to score the music for two different Batman actors -- Elliot Goldenthal wrote the music for Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer and Batman & Robin with George Clooney -- he is the only one to write two completely different scores for separate Batman Universes. Based on the quality of Batman Forever and its sequel, I'm assuming Goldenthal didn't really give character motivation much thought when writing his Batman theme, but Zimmer took it very seriously. Now that he's done with superhero themes forever (or for now. »

Movie Review – Beauty and the Beast (2017)

17 March 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Beauty and the Beast, 2017.

Directed by Bill Condon.

Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregorLuke Evans, Josh Gad, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline, Sonoya Mizuno, Hattie Morahan, and Audra McDonald.

Synopsis:

An adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

Disney’s live-action remake of 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast literally wastes not a second before nostalgically pulling at those childhood heartstrings, as it booms the beloved theme immediately as the camera begins drawing us closer to the iconic blizzardy located castle. Call it reassurance for those worried that this new take (on what is arguably the studio’s greatest accomplishment in their decades-spanning, unparalleled history) would stray away from the revered familiar story beats and musical numbers.

Matrix Reboot Wants Michael B. Jordan, Writers Room Planned

15 March 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans are still reeling from the news that Warner Bros. is exploring a Matrix reboot, with the studio bringing on Zak Penn (The Avengers) to write a treatment. The project is still in the very early stages of development, although sources claim that Michael B. Jordan is being eyed for the project, with another report stating that Warner Bros. is planning a writers room to come up with ideas for a cinematic universe. But that hasn't been confirmed by the studio. If this does come to fruition, The Matrix 4 will become the latest in a growing group of franchises to use this writers room format.

Deadline broke the news of this potential writers room being utilized, but it isn't clear how Zak Penn will fit into this process. As of now, the initial report only revealed that he's writing the treatment and not the full screenplay yet, but perhaps »

‘Beauty and the Beast’: How Bill Condon Built Hollywood’s Most Expensive Musical

14 March 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Bill Condon knew that turning the 1991 animated musical classic “Beauty and the Beast” into a live-action musical would be a huge risk.

In many ways, Condon’s a perfect match for “Beauty and the Beast.” He’s one of the few directors who know how to deliver intimate, swoony romance, believable singing musical sequences, and  digitally enhanced visceral action. He wrote Rob Marshall’s Oscar-winning “Chicago,” wrote and directed “Gods and Monsters” (starring Oscar-nominated Ian McKellen) as well as the Oscar-winning musical “Dreamgirls,” and shepherded the last two “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” sequels to $1.52 billion worldwide.

Given the chance to make the biggest-budget movie of his career, he embraced what could be the most expensive Hollywood musical of all time. “Beauty and the Beast” clearly has The Condon Touch: two men in love with the same feisty heroine, digital wolves, magical creatures, Ian McKellen, swirling cameras, gorgeous production values, a rich orchestral score, »

When, in June 2016, rumour got out that director Danny Boyle had started filming the sequel to his cult hit Trainspotting people got very excited.

Paparazzi and fans alike flocked to the Edinburgh set and disrupted filming, making it tough for the filmmakers to keep anything secret. “They were trying to shelter our costumes. They had umbrellas and were like, ‘Put your hood on when you get your hair done,’” recalls Jonny Lee Miller, who once again plays platinum-blond drug addict Sick Boy. “Danny said, ‘It’s like f--king Star Wars up here.’ There was a level of excitement which was quite alarming.”

The 1996 film was an unexpected sensation and made instant stars out of Miller and his co-stars Ewan McGregor, »

Every Detail We Have About Disney's Live-Action Aladdin Movie

9 March 2017 11:00 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Once we finally calmed down after hearing that Disney is in the process of rebooting Aladdin with a live-action film (à la the new Beauty and the Beast), we realized we have quite a few questions. Who can possibly fill Robin Williams's shoes? Will the musical numbers be just as magical? And how, exactly, are they going to handle the talking parrot? Related:This Crazy Fan Theory About Aladdin Is Actually 100% True The Story So far, not much is known about the new story. Although we're sure it'll follow the same basic plot of a young thief who meets a magical Genie who grants him three wishes, it's been described as "nontraditional" and "nonlinear," so at the very least we can expect the remake to take a few liberties with the 1992 animated classic.

New Predator Image Gives First Look At New Characters

9 March 2017 7:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Alright, I admit it.  I’m getting a little curious about The Predator reboot.  At first I was pretty hesitant (and still am) but a new iteration of the classic John McTiernan film starring Arnold isn’t so far out of reach from my psyche.  It’s just hard for me to accept the Predator doing damage outside of a jungle (let alone Space and Metropolitan areas).  But apparently Shane Black is going for the suburbia thing this time around. Black (Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man 3) shared a full cast-photo to announce the beginning of production, and it appears he’ll keep sharing with
