The Justice League movie that never was

9 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mad Max's George Miller was agonisingly close to bringing Justice League to the screen. Here's why it didn't happen...

With Mad Max: Fury Road currently melting minds at multiplexes worldwide, it seems like the right time to remind everyone that the film's director, George Miller, was once set to helm a Justice League movie back around 2008. The project was known as Justice League: Mortal and it was far more than an unproduced script. A full cast was in place, sets and costumes were in production from Weta Workshop, and filming was all set to begin in Australia before things got...complicated.

It's a shame, too. Based on the script I read, Justice League: Mortal would have been a fairly impressive, very recognisable representation of DC's flagship super team. It also would have beaten The Avengers to the big screen by at least a couple of years.

Comic book movies, and the exposition dump

28 May 2015 10:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book films are full of intricate storytelling. But sometimes, even Batman, Spider-Man & Iron Man need Basil Exposition's help...

This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and various other comic book movies - if you're not entirely up to date, then watch out as you read on...

As you know, we're enjoying a golden age of comic book movies and there are around 30 more of them pencilled in before the decade is out. Since Marvel Studios started experimenting with continuity between movies and whole franchises, there's been criticism of its use of MacGuffins and plot exposition - it provokes nightmares of long-winded recaps of already established stuff, starting with dreaded phrases like 'as you know'. And who'd start anything with those three words?

It's not that we're mistaking the use of exposition for poor storytelling - it's a super-broad term to describe something that's kind of essential to most stories. »

James Holmes References The Dark Knight Rises In Disturbing Diary Entry

28 May 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The trial of James Holmes, who killed 12 people and injured 70 others in July 2012, all of whom had gathered to watch The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado, has produced arguably its most integral piece of evidence in the pursuit to judge whether he maliciously planned his atrocities, or whether it was simply a psychotic episode. The evidence is a diary entry, which alarmingly makes reference to the final instalment in Christopher Nolan.s Batman series.  The horrifying passage from James Holmes, which appears in Time, was part of a particular section of his notebook, which had been sent by Holmes to his University of Colorado psychiatrist, Dr. Lynne Fenton, eight days before he became a mass murderer. It reads: I was fear incarnate. Love gone, motivation directed to hate and obsessions, which didn.t disappear for whatever reason with the drugs. No consequences, no fear, alone, isolated, no work for »

Suicide Squad movie: Everything you need to know about the members, cast, release date and more

20 May 2015 5:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With filming now well under way on Warner Bros and DC Comics' Suicide Squad movie, it seems like the perfect time to cast an eye over the lesser-known members of the world of Batman and Superman.

Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Jai Courtney lead the cast of the superhero film.

Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.

What we've seen so far

The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.

Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.

What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.

Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »

'Star Wars' writer Lawrence Kasdan tells it like it is: Blockbuster movies are getting too long

19 May 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" was beloved by fans, critically praised, won 11 Oscars and featured some truly stunning battlefield sequences, but I'll always remember it for being a butt-numbing 3 hours and 21 minutes long. There's no excuse for that! I was crying by the end of that movie. Crying because I never thought it would end. Let's face it: blockbuster movies are getting too long, and the worst offenders in this regard include such A-list directors as Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight Rises" at 165 minutes), Michael Bay ("Transformers: Age of Extinction" at 165 minutes) and James Cameron ("Avatar" at 161 minutes and can you imagine how long those sequels are going to be?). Thankfully, we have a high-profile savior in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, who promises that the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel won't represent a cinematic endurance test in a new interview »

George Miller wanted Heath Ledger for Mad Max: Fury Road, reveals title of next sequel

19 May 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Mad Max franchise returned to the big screen after a thirty year absence this past weekend with the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, marking the end of a fifteen year plus journey for director George Miller, who originally started developing the film back in the late 90s.

Having originally planned to shoot the film with Mel Gibson in 2003 before security concerns over its shoot in Namibia put the breaks on the project, Miller started giving consideration to recasting his franchise lead in 2006, and he’s revealed to The Daily Beast (via The Playlist) that he was actively pursuing the late Heath Ledger for the role.

Having been shot way back in 2012, George Miller’s post apocalyptic action sequel/reboot Mad Max: Fury Road finally roared into cinemas this past Thursday, with the film pulling in a $109.4 million opening weekend around the globe.

Film Review: An Adrenaline Junkie’s Dream, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ a Badass Bass Haven

15 May 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s “the greatest action movie ever made,” so says the television commercials (which means it’s true). And it’s buoyed by other quotables galore including “what a lovely day!,” “from mastermind George Miller,” “pulse pounding,” “heart wrenching” and “teeth grinding”.

While these words are actually true, though, the film doesn’t need them to sell it.

Though a cinematic “thrill ride” is often marketing speak – sometimes rightfully earned and oftentimes overhyped – this $150 million film sells itself because it really is exactly that. Gritty, dirty, mad and fun as hell, you can’t get much more of a thrill ride than “Mad Max: Fury Road”. And there’s no other filmmaker for the job than George Miller yet again, who not only proves he’s still got it but reminds us that he’s more than just the “Mad Max” mastermind. He’s also the creator of the »

Mad Max: Fury Road review - Charlize Theron takes the wheel in mad and memorable ride

15 May 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: George Miller; Screenwriters: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nick Lathouris; Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, Josh Helman; Running time: 120 mins; Certificate: 15

We Do need another hero.

But it's not an angry chap called Max. Instead, Charlize Theron's honourable heroine Furiosa dominates a bonkers and brilliant action movie that's relentlessly thrilling and full of surprises.

It's been three decades since Mel Gibson's policeman turned vigilante Max Rockatansky left the Thunderdome in the franchise's third instalment. The sands of time and pixels of TMZ have removed the leading star from the equation, but the infectious attitude and wild nature of this new incarnation are still the same thanks to co-creator, writer and director George Miller remaining at the helm.

While Mad Max: Fury Road functions as a continuation of the post-apocalyptic plight of the adventurer set in the Australian desert, it crucially »
