Textless version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman character image from Batman v Superman released, first trailer coming over Easter?

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…

On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane »

Amy Adams And Jake Gyllenhaal Are Circling Nocturnal Animals

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following on from yesterday’s news that George Clooney will produce the next project for writer-director Tom Ford, today sees Variety reporting that Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in aggressive pursuit of the lead roles in the adaptation, titled Nocturnal Animals. While firm offers have yet to be made, “insiders say it is headed in that direction.”

The fact that potential casting news has so closely followed the announcement of the project and its producers is indicative of the momentum that is building behind this film – the second directorial outing for fashion designer Tom Ford. His previous effort, 2009’s A Single Man earned an Academy Award nomination for its lead actor, Colin Firth, as well as Golden Globe nominations for Firth and lead actress Julianne Moore. Ford penned that adapted script, which is why such excitement has sprung up around Nocturnal Animals – it being his second adapted script for film. »

First look at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

25 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though we know it’s setting the scene for the larger DC cinematic universe and have a good idea who’ll be in it, there isn’t that much information around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until today, we didn’t even know if Lex Luthor would have hair or not. But now we do!

Just released by Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:

He definitely look intense, plus he’s got previous experience from The Social Network playing a billionaire who isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Eisenberg is set to debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is also rumoured to be a part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016.

Gal Gadot responds to criticism of her Wonder Woman casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

22 March 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Robot Underdog, Gal Gadot has been speaking about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more specifically, the criticism levied towards her casting as the Amazon Princess.

“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. hen I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t… After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I »

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles: Christina Ricci returns with a vengeance in campy new Lifetime series

21 March 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Lifetime’s new limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles premieres Sunday, April 5 at 10/9Ct. In January 2014, Lifetime took a proverbial whack at bringing the sordid tale of Lizzie Borden to a new generation of horror fans with its original film Lizzie Borden Took an Ax. Starring Christina Ricci as the parent-dispatching Lizzie and Argo’s Clea DuVall as her obedient sister Emma, Lizzie was a bloody good time and a ratings killer, luring 4.4 million viewers on its way to becoming cable’s second-most-watched original film of the year. A few months later, the network approached Ricci with another idea — reuniting with … Continue reading →

Meet Sheila Vand: Artist, Cinephile and Star of 'A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night,' Now on VOD

20 March 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You may have seen Sheila Vand as a housekeeper named Sahar in Ben Affleck's "Argo," or currently on NBC as a CIA analyst opposite Katherine Heigl in "State of Affairs." Or, you've seen her in what may be the first Iranian vampire noir ever, "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night," an ingenious work of pop pastiche written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, who Vand calls "Lily."  When she's not cultivating her screen career, Vand is foremost a performance artist, who starred on Broadway with Robin Williams in "Bengal Tiger at the Bagdad Zoo" and has worked independently on her own exhibitions, such as a musical act she dubbed "Sneaky Nietzsche." Vand brings her onstage dexterity to the role of a lonely, sullen, centuries-old vampire known simply as "The Girl." In a desolate ghost town torn from the pages of dusty American westerns by way of Italian neorealism, »

Trailer Round-Up: No Escape & Big Game

5 March 2015 3:20 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To throw your child off a roof for her own safety, you have to be stuck in a really dire situation. Such a hellish, last resort scenario is experienced by Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson) in the first trailer for No Escape, a thriller featured along with Big Game in our latest trailer round-up. No Escape (formerly titled The Coup) comes from the writing duo of brothers John Erick and Drew Dowdle (As Above/So Below, Quarantine) and stars Wilson and Lake Bell as Americans caught up in a coup. To get their daughters to a U.S. Embassy alive, they must rely on each other and their friend Hammond (Pierce Brosnan). Big Game, meanwhile, comes from Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale writer/director Jalmari Helander and stars Samuel L. Jackson as an on-the-run President of the United States who is striving to survive in Finland after Air Force One is shot down. »

Continuum (aka I’ll Follow You Down) movie review: the time traveler’s family

2 March 2015 4:15 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Indie science fiction with a rare humanism, a scientific and emotional mystery with a solution Hollywood wouldn’t dare go anywhere near. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big sci-fi geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I needed a really good science fiction flick to wipe away the couple of bad ones I’ve had to endure in the past week or so, and Continuum — aka I’ll Follow You Down in the U.S. and Canada — did the trick beautifully. This is almost the movie that Project Almanac wanted to be — kinda maybe, if it could have broken out of the cheap Hollywood trope in which FX trump emotion — an exploration of the human impact that time-travel could potentially have. There are next to no FX here, and not even any new SFnal ideas. What there is »

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Hans Zimmer briefly talks Batman v Superman score, writing individual themes for each hero

25 February 2015 12:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Catching up with Hans Zimmer at the Oscars this past weekend, MTV managed to grab a few comments from the composer about his work on the upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, asking him whether he plans to develop individual themes for each of the heroes.

“I’m trying, I’ll put it that way,” states Zimmer, who has previously stated that he plans to tackle Superman, whilst handing Batman over to Junkie Xl. “We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do.”

Zimmer was also asked if Warner Bros. has him down to score any future DC movies, with the composer responding that: “Look, the studio is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one…. And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it’s really »

Mary Elizabeth Winstead starts over in ‘Alex of Venice’ trailer

24 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Is it me or is Mary Elizabeth Winstead not getting the attention she deserves from her work?

Winstead looks to be on top of her game again in the first trailer for Alex of Venice. The film, directed by The Mindy Project star Chris Messina, debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year.

The film stars Winstead as Alex, an environmental attorney who finds her workaholic regimen thrown into flux when her husband, George (Messina), asks for a break. For Alex, George has always been the one to take the reins at home. When his unexpected departure dawns as something more permanent, Alex finds herself caught balancing her family’s demands, her aging father, played by Don Johnson, and her ambitious career, which she now struggles to maintain.

Alex of Venice is the directorial debut of Messina, who has always lit up in bit parts in films such as Argo, »
