Your Favourite Fan Theory About Jared Leto’s Joker Is Not True

13 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It originated in the deep, dark wilds of the Internet, and has been a fan theory that has persisted all the way during the production of Suicide Squad: that Jared Leto’s Joker is actually Jason Todd, the second Robin to fight at Batman’s side who died at the hands of the Clown Prince of Crime. It was a pretty convincing theory, backed up by eagled eyed fans noticing one of The Joker’s tattoo’s included a Robin, he had similar scars to holes in Jason Todd’s graffiti covered Robin costume from Batman v Superman, and around the same time the saga of Jason Todd was being played out in video game form in Batman: Arkham Knight. Sadly, it turns out not to be true, with Suicide Squad director David Ayer in an interview with Wsvn-tv (and reported by THR) shut down the theory by turning to camera, »

Gareth Edwards discusses Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alien creatures Pao and Bistan

21 July 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the Star Wars Celebration sizzle reel for Rogue One, we got our first glimpse of two alien creatures from December’s Anthology movie, affectionately dubbed by fans as “Bigmouth” and “Space Monkey”, and now director Gareth Edwards has offered up some details on the two characters, who are actually called Pao and Bistan.

“There was this great design of this creature that’s mouth would open really wide, and he looked like he was really good at giving orders and shouting at people during a battle,” said Edwards with regards to “Bigmouth”, a.k.a. Pao. “I was like, ‘We’ve got to give him that moment in the film,’ and so [Pao] was born out of that.”

As for Bistan, he’s a gunner on a new gunship/troop transport vehicle, the U-Wing: “It’s not necessarily a character that we get to know, but I think he has a very memorable, »

Great Job, Internet!: Video essay shares Christopher Nolan’s techniques for telling stories

20 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Christopher Nolan may make blockbuster films for large audiences, but he seemingly does so on his own terms with his own storytelling idiosyncrasies. His earlier indie films like Following and Memento may not have been for audiences everywhere, but they still garnered cult followings thanks to both the craft on screen and Nolan’s subtle work in creating complicated narrative techniques. And while he has his own visual language he likes to preserve, Nolan also puts his own spin on more traditional storytelling, even in the studio efforts like Insomnia, The Prestige, or The Dark Knight Rises.

A new video essay by YouTuber James Hayes examines the three most-often used elements of Nolan’s storytelling and how it has proven effective and enduring with audiences. The video is a fairly rudimentary examination of Nolan’s favorite three techniques for putting kinks in his stories—frame narrative, non-linear storytelling, and crosscutting »

'Star Trek Beyond' Review: The Franchise's Final Frontier

20 July 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Despite the futuristic tilt in the title, Star Trek Beyond works best when it boldly goes retro. The third chapter in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, with J.J. Abrams ceding the captain's chair to Justin Lin, is plenty fast and furious (Lin directed four of those adrenalized F&F babies). But it also openly gives its heart to what came before; any Trekkie that doesn't choke up at this 50th-anniversary edition is no longer in the club. Feelings run deep stemming from the death last year of original Spock Leonard Nimoy »

It’s Time To Meet The Suicide Squad

19 July 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems as though we’ve been talking about Suicide Squad for a very long time, and for good reason. Having DC supervillains forcibly banded together to work for the government under threat of death by explosive implant is a brilliant concept. In the source material, the original Suicide Squad first appeared in The Brave And The Bold #25 in 1959, and has popped up in various media numerous times over the years.

Now, however, the third film in the burgeoning DC Extended Universe is among the most highly anticipated of the year – thanks to early images of the cast and, in particular, of actor Jared Leto as a very different kind of Joker. But, it’s not just the stellar casting and stunning production design that makes Suicide Squad such an exciting film prospect. It’s also the very fact of who these characters are.

Mark Rylance praises Christopher Nolan’s “pure war film” Dunkirk

19 July 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fan favourite filmmaker Christopher Nolan is currently hard at work on production of Dunkirk, a World War II epic which chronicles Operation Dynamo – the 1940 evacuation of 330,000 Allied soldiers surrounded by advancing German forces on the beaches of Dunkirk.

During an appearance on the Empire Podcast (via Collider), Oscar-winning Mark Rylance has offered some praise for his director on the film, stating that be believes Nolan is crafting something very special.

“Chris is the most serious and interesting filmmaker. Every great filmmaker at some moment makes a war film. But Chris’ script-writing is so brilliant that I think he has the potential to make a very, very powerful and simple, pure war film about a miraculous loss. I think it has the potential to be just a marvelous film. With some of those old war films you used to get a lot of build-up, you play the guessing game: who’s »

Kathleen Kennedy doesn’t think we’ll see an opening crawl in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

18 July 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy suggested that the upcoming Anthology movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not feature the saga’s iconic opening crawl, and she’s reiterated that stance this weekend during an interview with Et at Star Wars Celebration Europe.

“You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, but I don’t think these films will have an opening crawl,” said Kennedy with regards to Rogue One and future Anthology movies such as the Han Solo film. “I think that’s what we kind of telegraphed at the beginning of the event today.”

Director Gareth Edwards was less committal, replying that: “I think basically there’s a lot of things that I probably can’t talk about, is probably the safest way to answer that. The idea is this film is supposed to be different than the saga films…the whole crawl »
