Warner Bros has confirmed a collection of new release dates for some of its upcoming projects, Each of these thus far as an American date, but we expect the UK arrival in each case to be roughly around the same time.
First up, there's The Accountant, from Warrior director Gavin O'Connor. The film stars Ben Affleck, Jeffrey Tambor, Anna Kendrick and J K Simmons. It follows the story of a man who's an accountant most of the time, and an assassin the rest of it. And it's now due to arrive on January 22nd.
Then there's the new film from The Hangover director Todd Phillips. Entitled Arms & The Dudes, the new comedy stars Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as a pair of friends who decide to bid on Us military contracts during the Iraq war. »
After I walked out of Mad Max: Fury Road over the weekend, I was impressed by a lot of things. The performances, namely Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. The absolutely insane practical effects that were filmed in-camera. The fact the film was made by a man whose last three directorial credits include Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet and Happy Feet Two. Don't get me wrong, I like dancing penguins and city-dwelling pigs as much as everybody else, maybe more, but let's agree the War Rig in Mad Max: Fury Road takes viewers on a ride that those animals, cute as they are, simply cannot. Perhaps two of the biggest highlights of the film, however, are its stunning attention to detail and the way it embraces the world around it, to the point its world doesn't feel created so much as it just exists. There is a sense of »

As of the writing of this post we're still waiting for final weekend numbers for Mad Max: Fury Road's opening weekend, but estimates peg it around $109.4 million worldwide, which isn't too bad for an R-rated film, though it still has some ways to go given its $150 million production budget before it covers all its costs. That, however, isn't stopping director George Miller from discussing the future of the franchise as he's already revealed there is "more Max to come" and has now told The Q&A Podcast with Jeff Goldsmith the title of the next entry will be Mad Max: The Wasteland. iOTA in Mad Max: Fury RoadPhoto: Warner Bros. "We've got one screenplay and a novella," Miller said. "It happened because with the delays on Fury Road, and writing all the backstories, they just expanded." Speaking of expanding storylines, Miller revealed the origins of the flame-throwing »

Australia/United States, 2015
Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) stands atop a sandy, rocky hill overlooking the unforgiving Australian desert, still haunted by the memories of his deceased family. Having perfected what it means to fend for one’s self, his ability to survive is seriously put to the test when kidnaped by a band of sickly, youthful warriors belonging to a secluded but powerful community run by Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne. They bring him back to their dungeons, torture him, and preserve him as a ‘blood bag’, a source of energy to help the citadel’s fighters, plagued by an unknown illness. Immortan Joe’s grasp on the people is simple: he controls the water supply. But not everyone is willing to simply abide by his tyrannical rule. Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a scarred »

Shared universes are big business right now, and here are seven franchises that could, and should be expanded...
It's likely that by the time you finish reading this sentence a new cinematic universe will have been born. In fact, it may be one of the cinematic universes I propose later in this article. If that's the case, I apologise for my obsolescence. Furthermore, if you're reading this in the future and any of my proposed cinematic universes have come to pass and turned out awful, I also apologise.
Just know that I'm sorry, and I've a feeling that many of us are going to be sorry and that the film industry could be in a sorry and confusing mess in five years time thanks to 'Cinematic Universe Fever' (a real affliction, and currently a very common complaint on the casebooks of doctors and private physicians in Hollywood). Right now, really »
If "Mad Max" is "A Fistful Of Dollars" and "The Road Warrior" is "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly," then clearly "Fury Road" is George Miller's "Once Upon A Time In The West," the moment when his movies move from the archetypical to the profound. It seems impossible that George Miller has been away from live-action for 17 years. Then again, nothing about George Miller's career has ever really fit into any typical model. I always think of him as part of the Class of '82, the directors whose work really crystallized in what I maintain is the greatest geek movie line-up of all time. Most of those guys came out of the system, either through the Roger Corman training program or moving from TV to movies, trained at southern California film schools so they all had similar skill sets. Miller was different, though. He was never really one of them. »

It was another strong weekend at the box office – both in the U.S. and on the international scene – and Avengers: Age Of Ultron shows no signs of slowing down.

But he has revealed that nothing prepared him for the physical challenges that faced him in his latest role - the title character in Mad Max: Fury Road.
"(Mad Max was) heavy metal in the baking sun, blunt traumas and car crashes, cars rolling over, spikes... Everything's metal," he told SFX magazine. "You're on wires with very little clothing on, and you've got a harness.
"It's very sweaty and hot and you're getting wrenched in the air and trying to bounce, smashed against metal, day in/day out, for six months. I got battered. I mean, it was bad."

Jeff Nichols, who earned widespread acclaim for his dramas Take Shelter and Mud, has next lined up Loving, a drama he wrote and will shoot this September. Warrior actor Joel Edgerton and World War Z actress Ruth Negga are attached to lead the drama in the roles of Richard and Mildred Loving, the couple at the center of 1967 civil rights case Loving v. Virginia.
The Lovings were an interracial couple who married in June of 1958, only for their union to be met with violence and legal repercussions. Authorities broke into their home, arrested them and sentenced each to a year in a Virginia state penitentiary. The sentence was dismissed on the condition that both of them left Virginia and did not return, a compromise neither wanted to simply accept. Over nine strenuous years, the Lovings battled against a racially prejudiced system to find their way home together.

Almost exactly one year from now -- on May 6, 2016 -- a bunch of people you just saw in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" will return in "Captain America: Civil War," along with a few familiar faces from other places, and some total newbies who remain mysterious. For now.
Emily VanCamp, very soon to be a "Revenge" alumnus, is returning to "Captain America" as Agent 13, aka Kate/Sharon Carter. She was briefly in "Winter Soldier" as next door neighbor Kate, assigned to protect the hero. Not sure what she'll be up to in "Civil War," but Emily tweeted confirmation about the scoop:

The moment I was sent the download link for the "Fury Road" soundtrack, I loaded the entire score onto my iPod specifically so I could play it in my car. Big mistake. The first time through, I didn't even realize how fast I was going, but around the time we got to track four, "Blood Bag," I glanced at the speedometer and was startled to see I had crept up past 90 Mph. I pumped the brakes, and since then, I've had to fight my own natural inclination to speed up as I have been assaulted by the intense cacophony that is Junkie Xl's "Mad Max: Fury Road" score. I had about five days to live with the score before my phone rang one morning last week, and I jumped right into what turned out to be a great conversation with Tom Holkenborg, the Dutch composer who is building a »

The summer is here, and with the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World right around the corner, the heat is really kicking up. Still, no movie has had me as excited as Mad Max: Fury Road.
The trailers have been insane, and no movie in years has sold me so quickly with the theory of wild, adrenaline-rush like this one.
You’ve seen plenty in the trailers to get your mind racing, but the new set of images really give you a lot of information (I think) about how cool this really might be.
Just take a look at this one –

Sure, you’ve seen the idea in the trailer, but just the sheer insanity of everything in this image. If this movie doesn’t turn out to be the most fun of the year, that in itself will be a feat.

I think that I can speak for the other writers on Dtb but Mad Max: Fury Road is probably one of the most anticipated films on our 2015 checklist. I grew up watching The Road Warrior (aka.

Good. We want you to have a lovely day! Read below to see how you can score a pass.
