David Ayer reveals Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

25 April 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director David Ayer has released the first image of Jared Leto’s Joker from the third film in the DC Cinematic Universe, Suicide Squad. It’s a definite departure from Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning portrayal of the character…

First impressions are often misleading, as many fans were shocked by the early behind-the-scenes photos of Ledger. No doubt these very strong choices by Ayer will lead to some polarizing reactions from fans.

I’m guessing this might break the internet in half.

What do you think about the new Joker?

Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, , Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller, »

Ultron and the meaning of robots and AI in modern Sf movies

23 April 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Age Of Ultron is about evil AI, and Ex Machina’s about a sentient robot. Ryan explores the link between these and other modern Sf films.

It’s an idea as old as literature itself: a lifeform is created, only for it to behave in a way its maker hadn’t anticipated - and sometimes with fatal consequences.

Writer-director Joss Whedon has drawn attention to the parallels between Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein and Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the latest opus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Whedon’s reading of Marvel comics lore, Bruce Banner and Tony Stark create Ultron - an artificial intelligence intended as a global defence program, but instead turns against the Avengers and humanity in general.

Brought to life by a peformance-captured James Spader, Ultron’s a charismatic example of a recent wave of AI characters in the movies. We’ve seen sentient, mutant »

Suicide Squad adds Common to its ranks in mystery role

22 April 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has broke the news that Oscar winning musician and actor Common (Selma) has joined the cast of DC and Warner Bros.Pictures’ Suicide Squad in a mystery role.

In the last year or so, Common’s name has cropped up in amongst various rumours for DC projects, and he was previously set to co-star in George Miller’s abandoned Justice League film back in 2008, which would have seen him play Green Lantern John Stewart. We wait with anticipation to see who the actor will play this time around.

Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, , Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller, »

Child 44 movie review: Stalin glance

22 April 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Overly complicated yet somehow anticlimactic, and constructed more with pat Hollywood pomp rather than the authentic grit it demands. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

Tom Hardy, Soviet hero of World War II, solves murders in 1950s Russia. Well, actually, there could be no murders under Communism, or so everyone tells one another in Child 44, because that’s a crime of decadent Western capitalism. Nevertheless, there are a lot of boys dead under suspicious circumstances all over southwestern Russia. Based on a novel inspired by the same real-life Soviet serial-murder case that the far superior 1995 HBO movie Citizen X details, this is an odd duck of a film: overly complicated yet somehow anticlimactic, more concerned with professional and personal jealousies among elite military investigators in Moscow than with police procedural, »

Over the past few weeks, Jared Leto has been gradually teasing his transformation into the Clown Prince of Crime for his role in Warner Bros.Suicide Squad, and now it seems we may have our first look at Leto’s Joker from the DC supervillain ensemble.

Jared Leto shares his Joker look from Suicide Squad

16 April 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jared Leto has given us our closest look yet to his final appearance as The Joker in Suicide Squad, snapchatting an image of himself with dyed green hair and red lips. No white face makeup yet, but with production on the DC ensemble now underway, surely we won’t have to wait much longer before we start getting to see the cast of supervillains in all their glory…

Child 44 review

15 April 2015 10:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Rob Smith's acclaimed novel Child 44 comes to the movies with Tom Hardy in the lead. Here's our review...

How does a state where 'there is no crime' handle an act like murder when it occurs not once but dozens of times? The answer is that the state – in this case, post-World War II Stalinist Russia – creates an 'official' story and buries the truth as capitalist propaganda.

That’s what happens in Child 44, the new political thriller based on the first in a trilogy of novels by Tom Rob Smith. Tom Hardy stars as Mgb agent Leo Demidov, who is busy at his job of routing out political dissidents when two major challenges come into his life: he is asked to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor, and also stumbles upon a series of grisly child killings that seem to stretch across 20 years »

13 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director David Ayer (Fury) has taken to Twitter tonight to announce that principal photography is underway on Suicide Squad, Warner Bros.’ big DC supervillain ensemble, which will join Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as part of the studio’s 2016 slate…

Ayer has certainly been active on social media throughout pre-production, teasing us with a series of images, so let’s hope he keeps it up during the shoot… and maybe even throw a few character images our way.

Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Will Smith (Hancock) as Deadshot, Jai Courtney (Terminator: Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller, Scott Eastwood (The Longest Ride) as Steve Trevor, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje »

As production is set to begin, the cast of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad got together to have their first read-through of the script. And to mark the occasion, the director tweeted out a photo of the cast together.

Elite Squad director Jose Padilha making Sf thriller, Mindcorp

8 April 2015 11:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Previously of Elite Squad and RoboCop remake fame, Jose Padilha is to co-write and direct a new sci-fi thriller called Mindcorp...

The outright brilliance of the two Elite Squad movies - a pair of drama-thrillers set in the favelas of Brazil - means we're always keen to see more from director Jose Padilha.

We found lots to like in his RoboCop remake, even if it did have its flaws - the final act, in particular, had the distinct air of studio interference hanging over it. But Padilha is likely to get freer creative reign with his next project, since it's based on his own original concept rather than a potentially blockbusting pre-existing one.

It's called Mindcorp, and Deadline describes it as a sci-fi thriller about "next-generation mind-body experimentation and a priest who becomes responsible for the survival of humanity."

Mindcorp began life as a short story written by Padilha himself, »

Vin Diesel and Chris Tucker are in negotiations to join Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk along side newcomer Joe Alwyn as the title character, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin and Kristen Stewart. The Wrap Carl Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress) has replaced John Singleton as director of Morgan Creek's Tupac the long-in-development biopic about rapper Tupac Shakur, with casting underway. Shooting is planned to begin in August or September. Why is Singleton off the picc Here's how he tells it on Instagram: Variety

Real talk! The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren't really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur. I won't say much if you want you can read my articles in Hollywood Reporter on authenticity in Black Storytelling ... To Pac's real fans just know I am still planning a movie on Tupac ... It doesn't matter what they do mines will be better. »

New rumours suggest Red Hood will be a part of Suicide Squad

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

Just like its Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice counterpart, the cast of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad seems to be constantly growing. We’ve had reports so far that have included Onslaught and Antiphon as the main villains with Deathstoke as their hired gun, as well as Hugo Strange and Plastique rumoured to have roles in the film. Not only that, but it’s been confirmed that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has joined the cast as Killer Croc and now we have a new rumour to add to the list.

According to Latino-Review (who seem to have quite the hold on this movie based on their obscene amount of rumours), Red Hood is set to also have a part not just Suicide Squad, but also the rest of the DC Cinematic Universe. The site claim he is now a priority character for DC.

Nothing confirmed for now, so just a rumour for the time being. »

Karen Fukuhara rumored to play Plastique in Suicide Squad

31 March 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, newcomer Karen Fukuhara may have landed a minor role in Suicide Squad as explosion-projecting Firestorm villain Plastique. Mayimbe jump-started the rumor on his Instagram page, clarifying that it’s unconfirmed at this time:

Mayimbe describes the part as “a minor role on the actual Squad,” explaining that she’s present in a nightclub scene. With pre-production in the final stages, it’s likely that that’s all the screentime Plastique will really have, either as a cameo or as one of the Squad members who gets her head blown off after disobeying Amanda Waller’s orders.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Will Smith (Hancock) as Deadshot, Jai Courtney (Terminator: Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, »
