[Review] The Water Diviner

24 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his directorial debut The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe already aligns himself with the Ben Affleck ideology of acting-directing. The ideas are the same here as with Affleck’s The Town, or parts of his preceding, Academy-dazzling Argo: when directing, shuffle around between a moral dilemma, comic relief, precise historical context, and broad melodrama. When acting, embrace the roots […] »

Henry Cavill says Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel

22 April 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There has been a lot of backlash from fans of the Last Son of Krypton that The Dark Knight is hijacking his sequel in order to make room for the build to the Justice League. However, Henry Cavill has spoken out against this idea, and says that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a sequel to Man of Steel.

“I’ve only seen a little bit of Adr stuff, but that’s it, and that wasn’t even in colour,” he told MTV News. “I’m hoping to see it [the whole movie] some time this year, for a friends and family screening or something. But I really know nothing about what the finished product looks like. I wouldn’t call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman versus Superman, so it’s a separate entity altogether. It’s introducing the Batman character, and expanding upon this universe, which was kicked off by Man of Steel. »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer | Flickering Myth Reaction

19 April 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth team react…

The film may still be 11 months away, but we’ve been given our first look at Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice via a teaser trailer! It was first leaked online (who didn’t see that coming?!) and then it was officially released less than 24 hours later. But did the release of the excellent teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dampen the spirits of the Flickering Mtyh writing and editorial staff?

Let’s find out…

Eddy Gardiner: I’ve said it from the very start: Affleck’s going to be a cracking Batman. Forget about the Star Wars trailer for a moment; this looks good.

Matthew Skeen: I think Affleck will fill the older Batman cowl well. Does look as gritty and dark as the source material, hopefully Henry Cavill will do better in this than his first outing.

Batman v Superman set photo suggests another major DC character is already dead before the movie

18 April 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Major spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the DC Cinematic Universe follow. You have been warned…

If rumours are to be believed, two big characters from the DC universe will already be dead going in to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with reports suggesting that both Jim Gordon and Jason Todd will have passed away prior to the events of next year’s DC superhero showdown. Well, a new (and alleged) set photo has surfaced, which suggests Robin will indeed be dead – only not the Robin we were expecting…

Update: Image removed by request of Warner Bros., so looks like it was genuine.

During filming on The Dark Knight Rises, a fake name was used on the tombstone seen at the Wayne family plot with “Bruce Wayne” added with CGI during post-production to protect the film’s ending, so assuming the above photo isn’t a fake, »

Official credits for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed on film’s official website

13 April 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While not exactly ground-breaking news, some new tidbits have been released on Warner Bros. Pictures first film in their DC Cinematic Universe, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the credits for the film unveiled on the official website(although they have subsequently been removed).

There are no real surprises here, with Ben Affleck getting top billing above Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot receiving ninth credit on the list behind Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter, suggesting her role is perhaps not as substantial as first thought. Fellow Justice League cast members Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) are not present in the list, although both are set to cameo in the film.

George Clooney’s Smokehouse Pictures Acquires Film Rights to ‘Three Minutes to Doomsday’

12 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures has picked up the film rights to Joe Navarro’s “Three Minutes to Doomsday.”

The book follows the FBI’s leading body language expert, Navarro, who was sent to track down Rod Ramsey to report on his knowledge or association with Clyde Lee Conrad, an U.S. Army officer who sold top-secret classified information to the People’s Republic of Hungary. It documents Navarro and Ramsey’s relationship and interviews against the backdrop of the Cold War.

Scribner, a division of Simon & Schuster, recently acquired North American rights for the book.

Howards Means, who collaborated with Robert Baer on “See No Evil” and “Sleeping With the Devil,” assisted Navarro in his writing. “Syriana,” for which Clooney won an Oscar, was based on Baer’s books.

Smokehouse most recently produced “August: Osage County,” starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, the Clooney-directed “Monuments Men »

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.
