The Wonder Woman They Didn’t Want You To See

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot…

This week sees the return of Wonder Woman to the big screen, the first time she’s appeared in her own live action project since the Lynda Carter fronted TV show ended in 1979. It wasn’t meant to be that way, though. Like other big name superhero projects, there have been other attempts to get Diana Prince on the screen.

One of those came in 2011, when NBC created a pilot TV show for Wonder Woman that, as happens with these things, was never picked up for a series or screened anywhere. Adrianne Palicki, who had appeared in an unsuccessful Aquaman pilot in 2007 and an episode of Smallville in 2004, but was probably best known for starring as Tyra Collette in the series Friday Night Lights, was cast in the lead role.

Pilots are greenlit, produced and scrapped without a second thought »

Netflix's Shimmer Lake Trailer Unravels a Backwards Mystery

24 May 2017 6:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a few weeks until it debuts on the streaming service, Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming indie Shimmer Lake, which is slated to arrive June 9. This dark comedy is set during the aftermath of a bank robbery in a small town, but nothing is as it seems, including the actual format of the movie itself. While we can't exactly tell from the trailer, this movie is told in reverse time.

Netflix debuted the trailer for this darkly comic crime thriller on YouTube today, which follows a local sheriff named Zeke Sikes (Benjamin Walker) hunting three bank robbery suspects, one of whom is his brother Andy (Rainn Wilson). From the trailer's opening moments, we can tell that Zeke is a straight shooter, so to speak, telling his young niece Sally (Isabel Dove) that everyone in town thinks they can do whatever they want with no repercussions. »

Newswire: Jesse Eisenberg to play Marcel Marceau in new biopic

19 May 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Jesse Eisenberg dabbled with biographical films in 2010’s The Social Network, where he played Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. Now Variety reports the Now You See Me 2 star is going full biopic for an upcoming movie about Marcel Marceau, the internationally renowned mime and actor who was a part of the French Resistance in his youth. Eisenberg will play Marceau, who joined the French underground in Limoges, where he would alter the ages on the identification cards of other Jewish teens in an effort to keep them out of the labor camps. He also hid Jewish children from the Gestapo, and even posed as a Boy Scout leader to smuggle them into Switzerland. Sadly, when he returned to his hometown of Strasbourg, he learned his father had been captured and sent to Auschwitz, where he was killed along with so many others.

Jesse Eisenberg to Play Marcel Marceau in French Resistance Tale

19 May 2017 12:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jesse Eisenberg has been tapped to play legendary mime Marcel Marceau in “Resistance.”

This won’t be the usual artist biopic, however. The film will focus on Marceau’s involvement in the French resistance when his country was occupied by the Nazis during World War II.

The film’s backers compare it to “Life Is Beautiful,” the 1999 Oscar-winner about a man using comedy to help his son cope with the Holocaust. In a similar vein, Marceau learned to mime to survive and to save the lives of Jewish orphans whose parents had just been killed by the Nazis. Before taking on his stage persona of Bip the Clown, he was born Marcel Mangel to a kosher butcher from Strasbourg. His father was eventually killed in Auschwitz.

Marceau gave his first major performance to 3,000 American troops of General Patton’s army after the liberation of Paris in August 1944. He went on »

Jimmy Kimmel to return as 2018 Oscars host

16 May 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd will return as producers.

Jimmy Kimmel will reprise his hosting duties at the 90th edition of the awards ceremony to be held on March 4, 2018.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs made the announcement today that Kimmel, De Luca and Todd will be reuniting for Hollywood’s biggest night. 

While the performance of all three received generally favorable reviews, they were ultimately overshadowed by the badly fumbled best picture announcement that incorrectly named La La Land the Oscar winner rather than the actual winner Moonlight. 

Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of Jimmy Kimmel Live! now in its 15th season. The show has earned six Emmy nominations in the outstanding variety series talk category, the writing for a variety series category, and the variety, music or comedy series category.

De Luca earned best picture Oscar nominations for producing Captain Phillips, Moneyball and The Social Network and has more than 60 film credits including »

Jimmy Kimmel is back, PriceWaterhouseCoopers be damned.

Strong reviews for the 2017 Oscar telecast were buried by the dramatic Best Picture envelope snafu and surprise “Moonlight” win. So the Academy CEO Dawn Hudson and outgoing president Cheryl Boone Isaacs decided to give the same team another chance to score for Oscars 2018.

Dear David Fincher, Please Return to the Alien Franchise

16 May 2017 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan with an open letter to David Fincher

Dear David,

I’m going to jump right into it: you should consider lobbying to direct the next Alien movie, whatever it may be.

Don’t stop reading! I know your last experience of the franchise on Alien 3 was a clusterfuck and you felt your career was being torn to shreds like Bishop at the end of Aliens. I understand why you look like you’ve suffered a death in the family every time someone mentions it to you, and I believe you when you say no one hates that film more than you. I get the pain, David. I. Get. It.

The experience made you develop a distaste for franchise blockbusters, it seemed you would never jump into something with prescribed expectations for success again. That was until you signed up for World War Z 2 (please change the title). Now, »

Girl in the Spider's Web Targets Claire Foy as Lisbeth Salander

15 May 2017 5:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems Sony Pictures may have found their new Lisbeth Salander in The Crown star Claire Foy, despite reports from March that both Scarlet Johansson and Natalie Portman were up for the role. Claire Foy is reportedly in early talks, but she may not be set quite yet. Insiders claim that, while Claire Foy has in fact been offered the role, there are still scheduling issues that need to be worked out before she can sign on.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this coveted role went down to both Claire Foy and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones. It's possible that Felicity Jones may be offered the role if these scheduling conflicts can't be worked out, but that has yet to be confirmed. Claire Foy has also been fielding interest to star in Universal's biopic First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as American astronaut Neil Armstrong, although it »

Mark Zuckerburg’s Real Reason For Creating Facebook

11 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In the movie The Social Network, Hollywood portrayed Mark Zuckerberg as a relatively awkward guy who was having a hard time getting along with females.   The movie makes it seem as though his real intention for starting Facebook was to “get girls.”   While some of this may be true, it’s important to point out that this is Hollywood and the narrative had to be relatable so that audiences would be more drawn in.   Zuckerberg did create Facemash, a “hot or not” clone which eventually led to Facebook but if you were to ask Zuckerberg today why he created the site

‘The Big Sick’ Trailer: Why It’s Still Possible To Spoil a Movie That’s Based on a True Story

4 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warning: The following article may — or may not — contain spoilers for “The Big Sick.” …It’s hard to say for sure. 

Emily Gordon has a problem: She can’t stop spoiling her new movie. She gives away the ending literally every time she leaves her house. But that’s not all — she reveals crucial plot information with every interview, with every tweet, and with every Instagram post. She just can’t seem to help herself. It’s not that Gordon wants to make it harder for people to enjoy “The Big Sick,” it’s just that she’s written an autobiographical story that hinges on the question of whether she lives or dies, and so the mere fact of her continued existence kind of gives away the ending.
