Way back in November 2014, it was revealed that composer Hans Zimmer is teaming with Junkie Xl (a.k.a. Tom Holkenberg) to work on the score for Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hans Zimmer will craft the theme for Superman (Henry Cavill), like he did in 2013's Man of Steel, with Junkie Xl working on a new Batman (Ben Affleck) theme. Earlier today, Water Tower Music released the Batman theme, entitled "Men Are Still Good (The Batman Suite), which you can listen to below.
Before taking on the job, Hans Zimmer admitted in September 2013 that he was unsure about taking on this job, because he didn't want to create new Batman music after working on Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. Junkie Xl, a.k.a. Tom Holkenborg, most recently composed scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Mass and Point Break, along with the upcoming Deadpool. »

Happy anniversary, Facebook! What is the gift theme for 12 years? It's hot fudge, right? Quick, someone pour hot fudge all over Mark Zuckerberg! To celebrate the anniversary of Facebook's debut on the World Wide Web, we thought we'd take a look back at what the social media site used to look like, way back when it was only available for Harvard students and "poking" was still a thing. Remember poking? That was a weird time for everyone. 2004 If you've seen The Social Network, then you know that Facebook started as just a website for Harvard students. This is what the login page looked like back then. Notice how "Harvard University" is in giant letters? We get it, »

The Fault in Our Stars helmer Josh Boone has spent the last two years wrangling his big-screen rendition of Stephen King’s The Stand into shape. Last we reported, Matthew McConaughey was in line to play one of the lead villains, Randall Flagg, in a series that would seemingly span one single R-rated feature and even a Showtime miniseries.
But Deadline brings word that Boone has placed the sprawling adaptation on the shelf for the time being, filling his time by, well, adapting another Stephen King novel. This time it’s 2014’s Revival that’s poised to leap onto the silver screen, and word is that the director has already finalized a script. Working in tandem with producer Michael De Luca (The Social Network, Fifty Shades of Grey), the project has been pitched to Universal, though the outlet notes it may yet find a different home.
Here’s the official »

Last week, box office analysts started tracking Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the early projections claiming that this highly-anticipated superhero adventure will take in approximately $154 million during its opening weekend in late March. While we still have to wait several weeks to see if those projections will hold up, Warner Entertainment Japan has released an international trailer, which doesn't include any new footage but offers a brief refresher course on this blockbuster-to-be, in case it's been awhile since you've seen the previous trailers. It isn't known if the studio plans on releasing any new footage between now and the March 25 release date.
If you look closely at this trailer, you'll notice Scoot McNairy's mysterious character in two scenes, one where he's in a wheelchair near the Metropolis memorial, and another where Superman (Henry Cavill) is seen entering a Senate hearing. A rumor surfaced yesterday »
Updated: Relativity Media will have to wait at least one more day before it gets court approval to emerge from bankruptcy. After lasting through much of Monday, the company’s confirmation hearing will reconvene at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.
During Monday’s hearing, it emerged that Relativity has raised only $20 million of the approximately $100 million it hoped to come up with in equity financing, but Joseph Nicholas, an investor in the company, said there were more than 50 parties interested in putting money in the company.
“We definitely can raise the money…it’s really about what kind of valuation will we be able to raise it at,” Nicholas testified in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on Monday.
Nicholas said that companies were interested in putting between $5 million and $100 million into the bankrupt studio behind “The Immortals” and “Limitless.” The major hold up is that these parties don’t want to risk »

Move aside, Marvel! It looks like there's a new player on the scene, and this town may not be big enough for the both of you! That's right, DC Comics' two new upcoming 2016 movies, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, are tracking 500% higher than other superhero competition on all digital and social media outlets. Climbing the Dar-Film leaderboard, these highly-anticipated comic book movies are overshadowing and out-pacing even the epic Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange.
2016 will see plenty of other comic book movies debut as well, including heavyweights Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse from 20th Century Fox. But early digital tracking places DC Comics at the forefront of this intense race, which is based on their standing at the same point pre-release. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently the #1 movie in volume and awareness. Number 2 is Suicide Squad. And standing at Number 3 is, »
Kevin Spacey addressed U.S. Bankruptcy Court on Monday via a pre-taped video, declaring himself “enormously excited” to take over as Relativity Studios’ chairman.
The “House of Cards” actor said he had filmed his remarks after winning a Screen Actors Guild Award last weekend and urged Judge Michael Wiles to allow Relativity to emerge from Chapter 11 protection.
“Rule whatever you want — frankly you’re the judge,” Spacey said, adding, “I hope that it will go forward and we will produce some great films in the future. ”
Spacey and his producing partner Dana Brunetti are taking over the creative direction of the bankrupt studio, but contrary to press reports, attorneys for Relativity said that Trigger Street, the pair’s production company has not been acquired outright. Spacey and Brunetti will have greenlight authority over the studio’s film and television production, but Trigger Street’s assets were not purchased.

Tracking figures aren't in yet, but the first long-range box-office estimates are out for Warner Bros. Pictures' "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" over at Pro Box-Office which suggest the new film is aiming for a $154 million opening against a project $388 million domestic gross.
That would put it certainly above the $116.6 million opening of "Man of Steel" and nearly on par with the $160 million opening weekend haul of "The Dark Knight Rises". The report, which has also tracked social media figures, suggest the film is performing stronger on those fronts than "Jurassic World" and "Furious 7" but softer than "Avengers: Age of Ultron" at the same point in their respective cycles (ie. around 7 weeks out from release).

2016 SAG Awards Predictions: The Winners Last-minute SAG Awards predictions, as the 2016 SAG Awards ceremony will begin in about half an hour (Jan. 30) at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. So far, there's one clear winner at the ceremony. That's veteran film and (mostly) television actress Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show, Annie), who will be handed the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be handling that particular presentation. As for the SAG Awards' competitive motion picture categories, this year remains murkier than most even though the list of likely winners has been narrowed down in recent weeks – especially following the Golden Globes ceremony and the Oscar nominations announcement. The 'oddities' The easy part: eliminating the “oddities.” No matter how good (or not-so-good) their performances, Johnny Depp in Black Mass, Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back, Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold, Idris Elba »

But gradually, The Social Network star has started to win over even the most stubborn of naysayers, and despite the fact Zack Snyder had initially intended for Eisenberg to play another part, the director now couldn’t imagine anyone else portraying the power-mongering megalomaniac.
More News From The Web
Citing his intense and indeed award-winning turn as Mark Zuckerberg in the David Fincher drama, Snyder spoke to Empire recently about the qualities that Eisenberg can bring to such an iconic DC villain.
“Just from a pop-cultural viewpoint you can’t pretend the movie doesn’t exist. Because he has played Mark Zuckerberg, Jesse represents a very contemporary sort of business model. In the sort »

The casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was a controversial one, to say the least. As most interpretations of the character are of a middle-aged man, to swing so far into the opposite direction seemed to fly in the face of any aspect of the comic canon. It didn't help that Jesse Eisenberg had, as recently as 2010, portrayed another technological wunderkind in the film The Social Network.
In a recent interview with Empire, director Zack Snyder said the following in regards to that very subject.
"Just from a pop-cultural viewpoint you can't pretend the [Social Network] movie doesn't exist. Because he has played Mark Zuckerberg, Jesse represents a very contemporary sort of business model. I the sort of post-dotcom world where fortunes can be made from your basement, it is not hard to image Jesse-as-Lex being as powerful as he is."
Actor Jesse Eisenberg didn't seem to agree with his director on this front. »

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

However, like so many seeking fame and fortune in 19th century America, those dreams didn't pan out as expected. Maybe it got a rattlesnake bite. Maybe it got dysentery and died. Maybe we're mixing our Little House on the Prairie with too much of The Oregon Trail. The point is, that movie obviously never ended up happening. Little House on the...
