42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Directors Still Learning the Subtleties of Digital Intermediate

4 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Often the work of a colorist — like that of an editor, a composer or a sound designer — is most profound when it is invisible to the common viewer.

Yet for that reason, color grading and digital intermediate are often overlooked, though they can be essential for storytelling.

Technicolor’s VP of imaging research and development, Josh Pines, points to Patti Bellantoni’s 2005 book “If It’s Purple, Someone’s Gonna Die” as a vital study of the ways tiny variations on color can play with audience expectations, functioning either as foreshadowing or misdirection.

“I don’t believe in numerology, but we are wired to have certain associations and find certain symbolism in things like numbers,” says Pines.

“It has an impact on the subconscious. It’s the same thing with color. I don’t sit down and say, ‘Oh, this color represents death, and this color represents…,’ but being aware »

Something Wicked This Way Comes Adaptation Adds Wrath Of The Titans Writer

30 October 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Halloween coming up tomorrow, new information about Disney’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s seminal October novel Something Wicked This Way Comes seems rather apropos. The planned film version of the fantastic novel already has a director in the form of author/screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith, and now, it also has a writer: Wrath of the Titans scribe David Leslie Johnson.

Something Wicked This Way Comes is based on the Bradbury novel of the same name, and tells the story of two adolescent boys whose small Midwestern town is invaded by a traveling circus. The circus, and its head honcho Mr. Dark, promise to give the townfolk all they ever wanted, but at much higher price than a sideshow ticket. The novel has been adapted by Disney once before, in a version featuring Jonathan Pryce as Mr. Dark.

With the hiring of Johnson to pen the script, it now appears »

This Guy Went to Comic Con Dressed as Multiple Johnny Depp Characters

14 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Half the fun of attending Comic Con - either the New York or San Diego iteration - is the cosplayers. Whether elaborately, cleverly or just plain ol' hilariously costumed, cosplayers are the beating heart and soul of comic conventions. And this attendee has taken the art to new levels, as this picture (circulated on social media earlier today - New York Comic Con wrapped up Sunday) shows. This man took it upon himself to dress as characters from multiple Johnny Depp films, a postmodern experiment in actor worship that we can describe as pretty cool. In no particular order, this »

Lego Batman Scores His Own Spin-Off Movie

12 October 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chris Pratt's Emmet may have been the star and focus of The Lego Movie, but one of the undoubted highlights of this year’s animated success was the arrogant, self-satisfied and, most importantly, orphan-status-obsessed Batman, voiced by Will Arnett. Warner Bros. has taken note of the attention and is pushing a Bat-centric spin-off into production.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lego Movie animation supervisor and co-editor Chris McKay is switching his focus from the in-development Lego Movie sequel to concentrate instead on getting Batman ready for his close-up in a potential 2017 release slot. Dark Shadows script man Seth Grahame-Smith is in charge of putting words in Arnett’s mouth, as the actor will reprise his none-more-gravelly delivery for the new film.Nothing is known about the plot for this one yet, but presumably it will once again see Batman act like he's the coolest guy in the world and »

Lego Batman Gets His Own Movie

10 October 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

There is no denying that The Lego Movie was huge success, and it seems Warner bros. are eager to capitalise on that success, with a Ninjago movie, based on Lego's ninja themed line, set for release September 23rd 2016, and now word has reached us, courtesy of THR, that a Lego Batman spin-off has being put put on the fast track. Will Arnett will reprise his role, which turned out to be one of the scene stealers (all together now, "Darkness! No Parents!"), from the original, and the movie is eyeing a 2017 release, possibly the original release date for the now delayed The Lego Movie 2. Chris McKay, animation supervisor on the The Lego Movie, will take on directing duties, working from a script by Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith. »

Warner Bros. Developing Batman Lego Spin-Off Film with Will Arnett

10 October 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Batman was one of the most entertaining characters in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's The Lego Movie. He was absolutely hilarious and stole every scene that he was in. Warner Bros. is going to take advantage of the situation and develop a Batman Lego spin-off movie, which is freakin' awesome! 

The animation supervisor on The Lego Movie, Chris McKay, was set to direct the sequel. That sequel has now been pushed back, and the Batman spin-off movie is being put on the fast track with Mckay now directing Lego Batman instead. It's also being written by Seth Grahame-Smith who wrote the novel Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and the screenplay for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows.

Will Arnett is also set to reprise his role as the voice of the Caped Crusader. Lord and Miller are attached to the film as producers, so hopefully the movie will still include their »

'Lego Movie's' Batman to star in spin-off film in 2017

10 October 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Move over, Ben Affleck. "The Lego Movie's" hilariously mopey and gravelly-voiced Batman -- voiced by Will Arnett -- is getting his own spin-off film, and it may be in theaters before the official "Lego Movie" sequel. Warner Bros.' original plan was to get "Lego Movie 2" in theaters in 2017, following the initial spin-off "Ninjago," which is still scheduled for September 23, 2016. However, the official sequel is reportedly being pushed back to an unfixed date, in order to fast-track a "Lego Batman" spin-off, which is now aiming for a relatively quick 2017 release, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move puts "Lego Batman" in theaters just one year after Warners' own 2016 live-action film "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice," which will star Affleck as the Caped Crusader and "Man of Steel's" Henry Cavill as Superman. it's the second film in an "Avengers"-style crossover universe; "Justice League" -- expected in 2018 -- »

2 October 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The 87th Academy Awards could see a collection of familiar names in the costume design category, from Oscar winner and 10-time nominee Colleen Atwood to one-time nominee Michael Wilkinson. When It comes down to securing nominations for costumes, it doesn’t matter how well the film has fared in other Oscar categories. Films such as Jane Eyre (2011), Mirror Mirror (2012) and The Invisible Woman (2013) were only nominated for costume design.

Atwood could receive nominations for Disney’s Into the Woods and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes during the upcoming awards cycle. Of her 10 nominations to date, she’s won three: best picture winner Chicago (2002), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) and Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010). Atwood has designed the costumes for nine of Burton’s films: Edward Scissorhands (1990), Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

30 September 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Tim Burton Wants Asa Butterfield for 'Big Eyes' Follow-up, 'Miss Peregrine'

25 September 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Apparently they didn't have the make-up to turn Johnny Depp into a 16-year-old boarding school student, so "Hugo" and "Ender's Game" star Asa Butterfield is Tim Burton's top choice for the lead in the upcoming "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children." Based on Ransom Riggs's best selling fantasy novel, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" follows 16-year-old boy Jacob as he investigates his grandfather's paranormal murder, meets a firestarter named Emma, and travels back in time to 1940 to miss the titular caretaker. The "peculiar children" are like a Hogwartsian spin on the X-Men, each with their own super-powered gifts. The Wrap reports that, if deals go down the way they're predicted to, Butterfield will take on the role of Jacob alongside Eva Green's Miss Peregrine. The disappointing returns of "Frankenweenie" and "Dark Shadows" aren't keeping Burton down. The gothic auteur's next film, "Big Eyes," is looking like »
