Yesterday saw the first image of Matthew McConaughey’s radical body transformation in his next film Gold. Not to be outdone, his Dallas Buyers Club co-star Jared Leto has undergone a similar appearance overhaul to play the Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Will Smith – who stars alongside Leto as Floyd ‘Deadshot’ Lawton – spoke how seriously the actor took the role.
“[Suicide Squad] is insane. I’ve never actually met Jared Leto. We worked together for 6 months and we’ve never exchanged a word outside of ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be ‘Hey, Jared. What’s up?’ He was all in on the Joker.”

She wasn't his four-leaf clover. Oscar-nominated actor Gary Oldman and his fourth wife, Alexandra Edenborough, have finalized their divorce after six years of marriage. Oldman's split was finalized on Tuesday, Sept. 29, and approved by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Maren Nelson. Oldman is the highest-grossing actor in film history, and has starred in films like Bram Stoker's Dracula, Beethoven, Leon: The Professional, and RoboCop. In the documents obtained by the Associated Press, the Dark Knight actor, 57, agreed to fork over $3.3 million to Edenborough. The papers [...] »

Reports have suggested that Englund could be tempted back to the role for the latest upcoming remake after he made comments about wanting to make some sort of return to the franchise.
Englund clarified his comments via his official Twitter account…
Just for the record, I will Not be starring as Freddy in any new Nightmare projects, real or fictional

Leto said, when asked about the film: “I can’t wait for you to see this – they’re going to lock me away in a box after this movie comes out.”
The star’s words will continue to spark speculation about what role Joker will play in Suicide Squad and how Leto will approach the role made iconic on the big screen by names as big as Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.

While critics loathed it, fanboys scoffed at it, and domestic audiences stayed away, the 2014 "RoboCop" remake/reboot did pretty decently overseas. In fact, the numbers helped push the movie to over $240 million worldwide, more than double the film's budget. Not bad at all. That said, Sony hasn't exactly been showing all that much interest in making another one, but apparently, they are not opposed to the idea. Den Of Geek is reporting that the studio is open to pitches for another "RoboCop," but the site's own report makes it seem like Sony is pretty half-hearted about the whole thing. Essentially, it's not a high priority, but the door is still open, and basically it sounds like if they get the right idea that sparks enough excitement then maybe, possibly, they'll make another one. Or not. And by the same token, whether or not Joel Kinnaman suits up is also a question mark. »

Just three months after he signed on to direct 20th Century Fox's Gambit, starring Channing Tatum, Deadline reports that Rupert Wyatt has backed away from the project. Production was originally scheduled to start in November, but filming has recently shifted to start in March, which conflicted with an unspecified project for Rupert Wyatt. Here's what the filmmaker had to say in a brief statement about why he is leaving.
"I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox, but regrettably a push in the start date now conflicts with another project. I thank them for the opportunity, and I know that Gambit will make a terrific film."
The site reports that 20th Century Fox is quickly trying to find a replacement director, but it isn't clear if the studio has a specific filmmaker in mind. Back in January, the studio set an October 7, 2016 release date for Gambit, »
If you, like me, were very much indifferent to the RoboCop reboot last year, then this news may actually come as a surprise; it seems there is still talk of moving forward with another movie. Despite relatively poor box office receipts in the U.S. the movie opened very well in China, and now it's being reported that Sony may go ahead with a follow up, either co-produced by a Chinese company or partially set in the East. China only allows 34 foreign movies to be shown there each year, and because of population alone, any movie lucky enough to make that shortlist usually does quite well from the territory. The biggest hurdle will be getting Joel Kinnaman to return as the cyborg, given his contractual obligations now with Warner Bros and Suicide Squad. We'll keep an eye on this and see how it develops...for the few of you who really really liked that movie! »

Fans of the 1987 Robocop certainly weren't fans of the 2014 reboot. The two movies bear very little resemblance, though since its release, newer fans have gravitated to this much-different version of RoboCop starring Joel Kinnaman. And while it wasn't the box office success Sony had hoped for, it has found its audience, picking up steam once it started streaming on Netflix. Now it's being reported that Sony hasn't completely abandoned the idea of a sequel. RoboCop 2, which has the working title RoboCops, is still very much a possibility.
The 2014 RoboCop tried to mirror it's predecessor by presenting some big ideas about war and technology, and the times we live in. But it was saddled with a PG-13 rating, and wasn't allowed to go as gloriously over the top as the 1987 Robocop. Some sci-fi fans truly appreciated what it had to offer, though others believe it was always destined to fail as »

There may still be a new RoboCop 2, as Sony hasn't closed the door on the project yet...
The reboot/remake/whatever of RoboCop remains, for us, one of the more pleasant sci-fi surprises of recent times. Appreciating it wasn’t everyone’s tin of baby food, we liked that it had ideas of its own, tried something different, and took something of a gamble. It would have been even better had the need for a 12A/PG-13 certificate been removed, and thus RoboCop could have a proper gun. But that’s how things are right now, it seems.
The film proved to be a decent hit for Sony and its assorted distribution partners around the globe, with it bringing in $242m on its cinema release, and plenty more on home formats. Granted, it wasn’t cheap to make ($100m), and it didn’t do the business in the Us ($58m »
Almost quarter of a century after her first appearance in the Batman: The Animated Series episode ‘Joker’s Favor’, Harley Quinn will make her big screen debut as part of Warner’s big DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad, which hits cinemas next year.
Back in May, DC Animated Universe legend Bruce Timm shared his thoughts on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn [see here], and now fellow co-creator Paul Dini has followed suit, telling the Shanlian On Batman podcast (via Forbes) that:
“[Suicide Squad] very much a real-world look. Jared Leto’s version of [The Joker] is almost like a decadent rockstar and there’s a little bit of Sid and Nancy to the Joker and Harley look, which I always felt would not be a bad look if they were in a live-action movie. I know it’s jarring to a lot of the people who love the classic Bruce Timm suit, I love it myself. »

Principal photography may have wrapped, but cameras were rolling again yesterday on Suicide Squad as the stunt doubles for Batman, The Joker and Harley Quinn filmed an action sequence for the DC supervillain ensemble. Thanks to eTalk, we’ve got a video of the action, as well as a mildly spoilerish description of the scene in question…
In the scenes, Batman breaks through the top of The Joker’s car, as The Joker and Harley Quinn sit inside. As the car goes plunging into the water, Batman repels off just in time.

Film and television composer Pedro Bromfman teams up with Brazilian director/producer José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) for a third time to score the Netflix series, “Narcos” a chilling tale of Pablo Escobar’s reign as the infamous drug kingpin and the bloody drug wars that waged through the 70's and 80's in Colombia. Bromfman scored and played most of the instruments on the soundtrack. He talks to us about his unique approach.

The cast and crew of Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming DC comic book adaptation Suicide Squad have commemorated the end of principal photography by posing for a group photo…
Director David Ayer shared the photo on his official Twitter account earlier today as he and the entire cast and crew posed for the photo, though it seems Jared Leto might be the only absentee (let us know if you can spot him!).

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
Gone are the days when Netflix had but one series per season; this summer has seen the streaming behemoth debut an electric new sci-fi property and the continuation of arguably its most popular show. Next in line is Narcos, premiering all ten of its episodes on Friday, August 28. The show tells the true-life story of the slow rise to power of Pablo Escobar and his massive cocaine empire that spanned cities and countries, and the handful of DEA agents who made it their life goal to put an end to his operation.
Like the service’s previous hour-long dramas, Narcos is handsomely produced, with unmistakably confident direction from José Padilha (2014’s RoboCop) and a warm color pallet that highlights the trickly sweat-drenched actors and the sticky air of both the Miami and Colombian city streets of the late 70’s/early 80’s. Unfortunately, where »

During an interview with Deadline to dicuss her work on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder, Viola Davis has offered up a few words on Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad., where she plays the character of Amanda Waller, head of A.R.G.U.S. and Task Force X.
“DC Comics have a tendency to have darker characters,” states Davis. “You know, Batman is a darker character, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and what David Ayer has managed to do is humanize them. I think that you see it in the trailer too–just something different about it that makes you lean in. What he’s explored is the pathology behind all of these characters, so you just get that extra spin that gives you the flavor and a look which is very different. »

Next year Margot Robbie is set to give a big screen debut to the fan favourite DC character Harley Quinn in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad, and speaking to Daily News, the Australian actress has revealed that she had previously been under consideration to play Susan Storm in 20th Century Fox’s box office bomb Fantastic Four – a role she eventually lost out on to Kate Mara.
“I didn’t really resonate with the script, and I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t really know how it turned out different from the page,” states Robbie. “But I had a great meeting with the director [Josh Trank] and I really enjoyed that. I guess it’s part of the game: sometime you win some, sometimes you lose some.”
Given the reception to Fantastic Four, I guess this one can be chalked up as a “win”.
Meanwhile, the actress also shared a »

Earlier this month, we reported that 20th Century Fox is testing actresses for the female lead in Gambit, with Léa Seydoux (Spectre), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation) and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) all competing for the coveted role of Belladonna (Bella) Boudreaux in this X-Men spinoff. Today, Deadline reports that the part was offered to Léa Seydoux. It was also revealed that Rebecca Ferguson had to drop out of contention after she landed the lead role in The Girl on the Train.
In the original comic books, Belladonna Boudreaux was the daughter of the New Orleans Assassins' Guild leader, who fell in love with Remy LeBeau (Channing Tatum). LeBeau was a member of the Thieves Guild, and was set up with an arranged marriage to Bella to unite both guilds, but Remy was forced to flee to New Orleans. Bella went on to receive her own super powers, »
Over the weekend we heard that Captain America: Civil War and X-Men: Apocalypse had both wrapped production, and now we can tick off another of 2016’s superhero (or supervillain, in this case) movies, with principal photography on Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad coming to an end yesterday.
However, it won’t be long until production gets underway on Warner’s next DC movie, with 2017’s Wonder Woman set to commence filming later this year.
