Alan Arkin Joins Tim Burton’s Dumbo Remake

17 August 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dumbo, Disney’s latest live-action remake of one of their classic animated films, has found yet another big name talent to add to its cast.

Variety has confirmed today that Argo‘s Alan Arkin has now signed up for the pic. A legendary actor and one who always impresses, this will mark the second time that Arkin’s teamed up with director Tim Burton, as the pair previously worked together on 1990’s Edward Scissorhands.

He’s not the only Burton regular to be roped in for the project, either. Former Beetlejuice and Batman star Michael Keaton is on board, as is his Batman Returns co-star Danny DeVito (who also worked with Burton on Mars Attacks! and Big Fish). Another Burton regular, Eva Green (Dark Shadows, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), is involved as well, rounding out what’s a very impressive cast.

As you no doubt know, Dumbo »

The ‘Justice League’ Batman Will Be Very Different Than the ‘Batman v Superman’ Batman

16 August 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Ben Affleck‘s future as Batman appears uncertain with the rumor mill suggesting he wants out. Just yesterday his own brother said he doesn’t think he’ll star in The Batman. Affleck, however, recently dismissed these rumors at Comic-Con. The Argo director is still Batman until he (or Warner Bros.) says otherwise. This Fall, he’ll be back as the character in Justice League, which […]

Casey Affleck Doesn't Seem To Keen On Playing A Superhero

16 August 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

While his older brother, Ben, is currently portraying one of the biggest superheroes on the planet, Batman, younger brother Casey Affleck was asked about his interest in taking on the role of a comic book character on the Dale and Holley with Keefe morning show.

“Eh, they’re all taken. Now, all the superheroes coming out are guys you haven’t heard of, and Swamp Thing. Maybe if they found one for me, it’ll make the kids happy.”

The younger Affleck is correct, most of the top tier of heroes has been claimed by other actors. However, before 2008’s Iron Man, Tony Stark was not a well-known superhero outside of people who actually read the comic books. So it is possible he could take a relatively unknown hero and bring them to the forefront of popularity. the same way Robert Downey Jr. did. I would be completely open to »

Casey Affleck Says He Doesn’t Think Ben Affleck Will Return As Batman

16 August 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As much drama as there’s been surrounding the casting of Daniel Craig as James Bond, there’s been a whole lot more surrounding the mystery of whether or not we’ll be seeing Ben Affleck as Batman after Justice League

Back before the release of Batman v Superman, it seemed like a match made in heaven. Affleck’s name was on the rise as a killer director and actor, and based on what we saw, he seemed like a fittingly intimidating Batman. When the film came out, fans still appreciated his take on the character, but Affleck himself seemed to pull back from his involvement of the universe as the film, and the Dceu as a whole, was subjected to increasing critical backlash. After clawing his way to the top with films like The Town and Argo, he didn’t seem too enthusiastic to return back to that part of his career. »

‘Justice League’ – Ben Affleck calls it “An Interesting Product of Two Directors”

14 August 2017 5:51 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

The recent news that director Zack Snyder would be stepping down from ‘Justice League‘ after the death of one of his daughters was shocking to say the least. Immediately, WB announced that Joss Whedon would step in as director to see that the film is completed. Whedon was already hired onto the project as a writer for the reshoots, since signing on to helm the in-development ‘Batgirl‘ film for the studio. Up until this time, Whedon had been working closely with Snyder on tightening up the film, as well as injecting his signature brand of humor into the project.

We’ve already seen the first trailer for ‘Justice League‘, which was clearly 100% Snyder. We alssaw the release of a special extended Comic-Con trailer, which had more of the Whedon brand, specifically with scenes of The Flash (Ezra Miller) in action. I’m sure the soon-to-be-released final trailer will give us »

Justice League Is the Product of 2 Very Different Directors Says Affleck

11 August 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We are rapidly approaching the release of Justice League in theaters. Coming off the massive success of Wonder Woman, DC fans are hoping for the best here, and so is Warner Bros. The movie has had some trouble, with Zack Snyder having to leave the production over a personal tragedy, making way for Joss Whedon (The Avengers) to step in at the last-minute and finish the movie. Ben Affleck recently talked a bit about how that will affect the movie and, according to him, Justice League is unlike anything he's ever experienced before.

The actor, who plays Batman in the DC Extended Universe, recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the two director situation on Justice League, which is set to arrive in theaters on November 17. According to Ben Affleck, the movie will truly be a product of both directors, with both seemingly having quite a bit of influence over the final cut. »

Ben Affleck says Justice League is “an interesting product of two directors”

11 August 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Justice League still currently undergoing its much-discussed reshoots, Ben Affleck has taken a quick break from production to chat with Entertainment Weekly about the DC blockbuster, commenting on Joss Whedon taking over directing duties from Zack Snyder and describing the superhero blockbuster as “an interesting product of two directors”.

“It’s a little bit unorthodox,” said Affleck. “Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could’ve possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in. [It’s] an interesting product of two directors, both with kind of unique visions, both with really strong takes. I’ve never had that experience before making a movie. I have to say, I really love working with Zack, and I really love the stuff we’ve done with Joss.”

Affleck also brushed aside the incessant rumours suggesting that the reshoots are »

Ben Affleck Discusses The Experience Of Working With Two Directors On Justice League

11 August 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Admittedly, Justice League is a movie I’ve waited my entire life for, as it’s bringing several of my favorite characters together for the first time in live-action cinema. Likewise, I imagine that many of you reading this share that sentiment, hoping that the combined talents of directors Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon will make for a viewing experience like no other.

In the past few months, the subject of the reshoots this film continues to undergo has been a hot point for discussion, often being labeled by absolutist fanboys and conspiracy theorists as “fake news” or part of some “Dceu smear campaign” organized by the evil media.

Casting such hilarity aside, the fact of the matter is that reshoots began in June and are still currently ongoing, thus this is much more than what’s usually allotted to any sort of project. Most recently, actor Joe Morton confirmed »

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

7 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Read More‘Logan’ Composer Marco Beltrami on R-Rated Wolverine Minimalist Score

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there. There are plenty of other worthy contributors to the medium who didn’t make the cut — Danny Elfman and John Williams, we’re looking at you — but rest assured that this top dozen represent the cream of the crop.

Platino Awards: Edward James Olmos on Latino Power and Donald Trump

21 July 2017 5:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Soon to be seen in “Blade Runner 2049,” where he reprises his role as Gaff, Edward James Olmos sounded a note of large hope for Latino moviemaking as he talked to journalists in Madrid a day before he receives the 2017 Honorary Platino Award for career achievement.

Latinos account for more than 20% of the population but only 4% of images in the U.S., said Olmos, a seasoned voice of Hollywood’s Latino film and TV community who shot to fame in “Miami Vice” to snag an Oscar nomination for “Stand and Deliver.”

That contrasts with Afro-Americans – 12% of Americans and 17% of images. In 1940, there were 750 cinema theaters in the U.S. screening movies in Spanish. Now there are only 35, Olmos said, adding he was shocked no mention was made in “Argo” of the fact that the real-life Tony Mendez played by Ben Affleck in the film was Mexican-American.

The situation, Olmos argued, can only get better. »

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Is the First Slam-Dunk Oscar Contender of 2017

17 July 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was shocking.

Warner Bros. had played all the right notes with “Inception.” A summer blockbuster that quickly took on a prestige sheen, Christopher Nolan’s mind-warping actioner was easily one of the year’s best films. With overwhelming critical, popular and industry approval, it was instantly set on a crash-course for a best picture Oscar nomination.

A director bid, meanwhile, seemed a foregone conclusion, particularly in the wake of Nolan’s 2008 “The Dark Knight,” which came up short in the major categories and, in part, led to the film Academy’s decision to expand the best picture field to better accommodate movies of its ilk. But “Inception” was a step above in this regard, bravura filmmaking, the kind of entertainment directors only dream of conjuring (no pun intended). Nolan was secure.

Then: the nominations. Not only was Nolan passed over for directing, but somehow, a film built on its structure and editorial prowess was ignored by »

The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

12 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Cai Ross

The original Planet of The Apes movies occupied a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the new post-Rise cycle) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Enormous box office successes in their early stages, they spawned »
