Countdown to Batman v Superman – Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

8 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church begins his countdown to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns…

In the 75+ years the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight have existed, there has been a wealth of stories involving two of the world’s greatest heroes. With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arriving in a few short weeks, Flickering Myth will be recommending some of the most influential and iconic stories that have examined the friendship (and sometimes rivalry) between both characters.

First up is the most obvious one, The Dark Knight Returns. Considered to be one of the most influential graphic novels of all time, the famous story sees Bruce Wayne in his late sixties after having retired as Batman for 10 years. Fed up with the increasing amount of crime in his absence Bruce once again dons the cape and cowl, setting off a chain of events in »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Dresses as Robin and Makes Out with a Man in Drag During Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Ceremony

7 February 2016 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A severe snowstorm couldn't keep Joseph Gordon-Levitt away from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Friday as he braved the elements to be feted and roasted by men in drag from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals for their 2016 Man of the Year award. Gordon-Levitt - the 50th recipient of the award presented annually by Harvard University's distinguished theater troupe - took the good-natured ribbing in stride, even as the evening's emcees poked fun at his Oscar snubs and less-than-stellar box-office returns. The decision by the actor - who starred last year in The Walk - to drop out of Columbia University to return to acting was a recurring joke, »

Listen to Junkie Xl's 'Dawn of Justice' Batman Theme

5 February 2016 11:51 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Deadpool to Power Rangers: comic-book movies' new irreverence

5 February 2016 9:07 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gloriously off-message and packed full of punky insouciance, the current crop of superhero films suggests we’re entering an era in which even the silliest of source material can shine

In The Dark Knight, which arguably ushered in the modern comic-book film era, the Joker’s “Why so serious” refrain is a call to arms in the face of mankind’s refusal to buy into his distinctive brand of psychopathic glee. Why bother with the burden of the human condition, wonders Heath Ledger’s killer clown, when it’s far easier to freewheel murderously through life without a care in the world?

Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is often seen as the dark, brooding counterbalance to the cheerier Marvel movies that followed it. And yet in many ways, Ledger’s cackling, sociopathic performance supercharged the trilogy’s 2008 middle instalment in the same way as Joss Whedon’s diamond-cut dialogue rocket-fuelled 2012’s The Avengers. »

The Bullets Fly In The New Deadpool Track By Junkie Xl

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tom Holkenborg, A.K.A Junkie Xl, is the hottest name in Hollywood music. Fresh off of Mad Max and Black Mass; Junkie Xl is only two week away from his latest film, Deadpool. "Twelve Bullets" is the latest track from the film featuring Ryan Reynolds in the red suit. This isn't the composer's last project either, as he and Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight Rises, Amazing Spider-Man 2, Man of Steel and Shark Tale) will be teaming up once again for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. »

Sundance: Looking Beyond the Winners’ Circle

2 February 2016 9:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: Well, I called it. Then again, who didn’t? Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” cemented its standing as the sensation of Sundance 2016 by winning the grand jury prize and audience award on Saturday night — an outcome that was hardly surprising, in light of recent double winners like “Precious,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Whiplash” and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” as well as the undeniable cultural weight that a film about slavery, featuring a black hero and told from a black filmmaker’s perspective, now carries. Later this year, when Fox Searchlight launches its not-so-secret weapon to prevent another #OscarsSoWhite, there will be plenty of opining (as there is already) that “The Birth of a Nation” is a cultural landmark but a far-from-great movie, one whose import and relevance overshadow some of its artistic shortcomings.

I’ve written plenty about Parker’s film, which strikes me »

Batman v Superman Tracking to Open at $154 Million Domestically?

1 February 2016 10:36 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While DC seems to weather a decent amount of internet hate these days, there's no denying the fact that Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Batman alone was able to garner billions in the The Dark Knight Trilogy, so throw him together with Superman, and the studio is bound to come across some serious coin.

But, of course, the real question is how much the film will make. The folks over at BoxOffice.com have crunched the numbers, and they've seen fit to track the film at a $154 million domestic opening, well ahead of Man Of Steel's $116 million opening, though a bit behind The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises' opening weekend earnings of $158 million and $160 million, respectively.

Despite the fact that the movie will indeed have two supers at the forefront, the site took into account the »

Los Angeles’ ‘6th Street’ Bridge Gets A Movie Tribute

1 February 2016 12:37 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

6th Street bridge movie tribute: Film fan constructs edit of movies featuring the Los Angeles landmark.

A film fan has created a 6th Street bridge movie tribute. A what? Well, the 6th Street bridge in Los Angeles is not necessarily a landmark that one would instantly recognise, but you’d be surprised just how many films the 80-year-old viaduct has featured in. There are literally hundreds. Well, the bridge is now closed (as of January 29th), and will be pulled down later this year and rebuild ready for a 2019 opening.

Vashi Nedomansky, an avid, prolific filmmaker/ editor over on Vimeo has constructed the 6th Street bridge movie tribute which features 11 of the many films that the bridge has featured in over the years since its construction in 1932. Amongst them are The Mask, Drive, Terminator 2, Point Blank (1967), The Dark Knight Rises and To Live And Die In L.A.

"Batman v Superman" To Open With $154M?

31 January 2016 10:23 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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).

The figures come as Empire has spoken with actor Jesse Eisenberg about his take on Lex Luthor in the film, the inevitable comparisons to Eisenberg's work on "The Social Network," and his relevance »

Lego presentation hints at Boba Fett appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

31 January 2016 3:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already know that Darth Vader is set to feature in this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now it seems that Lego may have revealed another fan favourite Original Trilogy character will appear in the Anthology movie.

During a presentation at Nuremberg Toy Fair – where several Rogue One costumes are also on display – The Lego Group unveiled some of its Star Wars plans for 2016, with Rogue One accompanied by an image of what appears to be Slave I, which is of course the ship of the fearsome bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Now, this is of course far from confirmation that Boba Fett will feature in the movie, but it’s been said there will be a big focus on bounty hunters, so it’s certainly within the realm of possibility. »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice forecast for $154 million domestic opening

30 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than two months to go before The Dark Knight takes on the Man of Steel, BoxOffice.com is forecasting a $154 million domestic box office opening for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which would be the tenth biggest North American opening of all time behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($158 million).

The Dark Knight Rises holds the record for the biggest domestic opening for a DC movie, debuting to $160.9 million in 2012. Its predecessor The Dark Knight opened with $158.4 million four years prior. Zack Snyder’s previous DC outing Man of Steel earned an opening weekend of $116.6 million back in 2013.

Rumoured details on Forest Whitaker’s character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

30 January 2016 8:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month, the folks at Making Star Wars posted some rumours about Mads Mikkelsen’s role in the upcoming Anthology movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now the site is back with some minor details about Forest Whitaker’s character.

According to the report, Whitaker’s character is said to be a good guy, who could also be a bounty hunter. A battle-hardened veteran, he has lost a leg and has a robot prosthetic, as well as needing a cane to walk. He also wears a cape, while “his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s castle).”

What if Christopher Nolan had said no, telling Zack Snyder that Batman should be off-limits only four years after he put the finishing touches on his Bat-verse trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises? I guess we'll never know, but it's one of those mysteries we'll have to ponder as the DC Cinematic Universe gets ready to expand with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

What Christopher Nolan Told Zack Snyder Before He Made Batman V Superman

27 January 2016 1:41 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is now under two months away. Doesn.t it seem like just yesterday that the whole world was up in arms about the casting of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne? As he did with Warner Bros.. Man Of Steel, Zack Snyder is directing Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The filmmaker admitted he sought the advice of previous Batman director Christopher Nolan on how to handle the blockbuster, and the Englishman told him to not be so precious about the characters. Zack Snyder told Empire, via Coming Soon, that, after revealing that he was going to pit Superman against Batman, Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises) "found it a little bit hard" to consider. But he ultimately told Snyder: Well, we don.t own these characters. When you.re done making Batman movies, someone else will [make them]. This »

Zack Snyder Says Batman V Superman May Not Have Come To Pass If It Weren’t For Christopher Nolan’s Blessing

27 January 2016 11:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There was a moment early on in the lifecycle of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – then referred to internally as Man of Steel 2 – when the concept of introducing Gotham’s Caped Crusader was floated by Warner Bros.’ top brass.

It was a decision that would completely upend any plans for a second Supes standalone feature, and was certainly one that wasn’t taken lightly. Perhaps more so than anyone else involved in the creative process, it was Zack Snyder who shouldered the responsibility of handling the titanic crossover, though he sought the advice of one Christopher Nolan before making any tangible progress.

Snyder and Nolan’s conversation was published by Empire earlier today – incidentally, the featured image above is a colorized version of the outlet’s new issue by artist Jeremiah Skipper – revealing that the former presented The Dark Knight director with something »

Christopher Nolan Gave Zack Snyder His Blessing on 'Batman v Superman'

27 January 2016 10:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some view Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight as the seminal example of comic book and superhero filmmaking. And to follow those three movies up with an all-new Batman is surely an endeavor no ordinary filmmaker would ever attempt to take on. In fact, despite the presence of The Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder was a little hesitant to bring Bruce Wayne back to the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after such a short absence. It has been only 4 years, after all, that we last saw Christian Bale don the cape and cowl in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. Because of that, Zack Snyder decided that he needed to get Christopher Nolan's blessing moving the character into the future. And he certainly got what he asked for.

Speaking with Empire magazine recently, Zack Snyder recounted his quest to get Christopher Nolan to sign off »
