New VFX video breaks down Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s epic space battle

22 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you a VFX reel looking at the digital recreation of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we’ve got another video, this time breaking down Ilm’s work on the spectacular space battle above Scarif. Take a look here…

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

The Lego Batman Movie Is DC’s First Good Theatrical Release Since ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

21 February 2017 3:30 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

DC has been struggling hard to keep up with Marvel in recent years.  Sure, their bottom line doesn’t look that bad, but it’s been nothing to brag about either.  Across the board, their movies have fallen increasingly far behind their chief rival both critically and financially.  Even their most ardent supporters are failing to drum up much enthusiasm for previously anticipated movies like Wonder Woman and Justice League. The tides, however, appear to be changing.  They just released a new Batman movie that is their highest rated theatrical release since 2008’s The Dark Knight and cleared more than $100 million

Check Out A New Trailer And Poster For Colossal Starring The Dark Knight Rises' Anne Hathaway

16 February 2017 10:18 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial) is back with another potentially brilliant oddity, which features The Dark Knight Rises' Anne Hathaway, and... a Kaiju. The movie is called Colossal, and it's about a despondent woman named Gloria (Hathaway) who somehow conjures and then psychically controls a giant monster that begins laying waste to Seoul. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world. The film premiered at Cannes last year to a generally favorable response, and based on the new trailer below, it should definitely be worth a look. Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene girl who is thrust into crisis when her boyfriend, Tim (Dan Stevens), grows sick of her antics and kicks her out of their apartment. With no other options, she moves back to her hometown and quickly regresses, »

If anything can be said about Batman’s rogues gallery, it’s that it boasts the deepest and arguably most psychologically complex collection of villains in all of comics. One such baddie that’s enjoyed some time in the limelight following the success of 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises is that of everyone’s favorite militant to don a luchador mask, who will soon be granted a 12-issue limited series written and illustrated by his original creators in the form of Bane: Conquest.

That’s right, none other than Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan will return to grant Bane “new cities to conquer and new enemies to crush.” And although we’re only two issues deep into the “I am Bane” story arc currently unfolding in the pages of Tom King and David Finch’s Batman, »

'Batman Begins' Finally Gets an Honest Trailer

14 February 2017 10:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

This is the one the people have been waiting for.

Honest Trailers has finally completed its take on The Dark Knight trilogy — and it saved the first for last with 2005's Batman Begins getting the treatment.

The trailer comes years after 2012's The Dark Knight Honest Trailer broke ground for the series as the first movie its gravelly voiced narrator had to admit was actually good. It's take on The Dark Knight Rises take a few months later was much less kind.

Now it's come full circle, going back to a time when audiences weren't sick of superhero »

The Lego Batman Movie: references and Easter Egg guide

David Crow Feb 13, 2017

The movie, TV show, cartoon and comic references of The Lego Batman Movie...

This article contains major The Lego Batman Movie spoilers.

Holy plastic building blocks, Batman! Almost everything really was awesome about The Lego Batman Movie. After years of dark nights and grim glares at other superheroes, the newest adventure of the Caped Crusader, as voiced by Will Arnett’s perfectly overdone gravel, was a breath of fresh air. Not afraid to let Batman’s sidekicks have fun - even if our cantankerous main guy still prefers to wear only black and sing about “darkness” - The Lego Batman Movie is poised to entertain Bat-fans of all Bat-ages.

Still one of its best gags is its shameless (and relentless) use of references, cutaways, and in-jokes to overstuff its narrative with more meta-humor than the most unwieldy episode of Community. As a consequence, it’s easy to »

The Movies That Changed My Life: ‘Dark Night’ Director Tim Sutton

9 February 2017 12:16 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Brooklyn-based writer-director Tim Sutton makes challenging, daring and experimental films often culled together from micro-budgets. His debut, “Pavilion“, is a coming-of age statement and his follow up, “Memphis”, is a poetically fragmented look at a musician’s drifting life. In his latest movie, “Dark Night,” Sutton continues to prove he’s one of the most fascinating, on-the-rise indie filmmakers working today.

Thought-provoking and unsettling, “Dark Night” is loosely based on “The Dark Knight Rises” movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado in 2014.

Affleck’s Out: Who Should Direct DC’s Next Batman Movie?

9 February 2017 5:45 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To the dismay of fans everywhere, news broke this week that Ben Affleck will no longer be directing the upcoming solo Batman movie.  For all the pessimism surrounding Warner Bros’ handling of their DC source material, the future was looking up for the troubled meta-franchise.  Wonder Woman looks like it could be the company’s first good movie since The Dark Knight Rises.  Entries like Green Lantern Corps and Shazam stand ready to radically shake up the grimdark formula that the other DC properties seem bullheadedly committed to.  And yes, a celebrated writer / producer / director like Ben Affleck was

The 12 Most Emotional Deaths In Superhero Movies

8 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s an old joke to say that death doesn’t mean anything in the world of superheroes. And while that is true in the sense that the dead often don’t stay that way forever – the list of ‘un-resurrectable’ characters is decreasing all the time in comics – that doesn’t mean to say that the unfortunate character’s demise won’t still pack an emotional punch.

Let’s look at a few examples from comic book movies. Yes, Batman might have somehow escaped to Paris after apparently sacrificing himself to save Gotham, for instance, but you can’t that say your bottom lip wasn’t quivering when you watched that scene in The Dark Knight Rises for the first time. Then again, sometimes a character’s death really does mean it’s curtains for them. In which case, it comes as a shock when the hero can’t save the day. »

Arrow Round Table: Welcome, Dinah Drake!

6 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There's a new Black Canary in town and we can't wait to see what's coming up for her. 

On Arrow Season 5 Episode 11 Tina Boland was revealed to be Dinah Drake and it was Amazing. 

TV Fanatics Steve Ford, Jim Garner and Paul Dailly discuss the big twist, Felicity's involvement with Helix and all things Talia al Ghul. 

What did you think of Tina being Dinah Drake?

Steve: I must admit, I got chills when Tina said her real name is Dinah. Those who don't follow the show that well may have been a bit confused by that reveal. I loved it, and it basically solidified Tina's fate as taking the mantle from Laurel.

Jim: They are kind of working backwards... Because in the comics (golden age mostly) Dinah Drake became Dinah Drake Lance, who's daughter is Laurel Lance.... So, I got no idea where they are going now. 

Paul: It was a great twist, »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #5

6 February 2017 8:49 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

[Editor's Note: This is a re-post of the last entry in this series. As I prepared for the latest installment, I realized that- through some sort of bizarre technical glitch- this post has disappeared from Lrm Online. The other four remained in place, but this one somehow vanished. I'm preparing Column #6 for later today, so you can reread this in the meantime.]

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm.

It's suggested that you read the previous entries in the series, as they all build upon one another:

Column #4

Last week, we left off with the arrival of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The film that began its first real rounds in the cinematic pop culture lexicon way back in 2002, and which gave birth to Batman Begins and Superman Returns– despite the fact neither of those films ended up factoring into the final evolution of the project- finally arrived on March 25, 2016.

Entertainment Weekly #664, back on July 26, 2002 when the project was first being buzzed about.

Why Ben Affleck Isn’t Directing The Batman, According To Kevin Smith

4 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

People are still getting over the shocking announcement from Ben Affleck earlier this week, stating that he would no longer direct The Batman. Sure, he’s been hesitant all along, hinting that he wasn’t completely happy with the script, but I don’t think anyone actually expected him to step down from the director’s chair. Turns out though that he just couldn’t resolve his differences with the studio and now, Warner Bros. is left to find a replacement.

They haven’t announced yet who might be stepping in to take the job, but a shortlist points to Matt Reeves and George Miller being the top picks, among others. Whoever ends up being selected, they’ll have an unbelievably tough task ahead of them. Expectations for The Batman are sky high and there’s a lot riding on it. We don’t want to say that the film »

Joshua Reviews Tim Sutton’s Dark Night [Theatrical Review]

3 February 2017 5:06 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

On July 20, 2012, James Eagan Holmes entered a theater for a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, and subsequently took the lives of 12 men and women, injuring another 70. Shattering the community of Aurora, Colorado, this event in turn helped spark yet another debate over gun violence, America’s gun culture, and the inability for governmental leaders to truly make headway with common sense gun reform.

But how does a filmmaker capture this event on screen? Does someone go the fictional route like Gus Van Sant’s Elephant? Or does the documentary route fit better, as with something like the superlative 2016 documentary Newtown? Well, for director Tim Sutton, the grey area between the two appears to fit best.

Sutton’s third film, Dark Night, is loosely based on the events that took place that horrific day in 2012, and more specifically looks at the fictionalized moments leading up to it in the »

Dark Night Review

3 February 2017 7:29 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first shot of Tim Sutton’s Dark Night is genius. We see a silent close-up of a woman’s eyes, smears of primary colored light flashing over them. It’s natural to assume she’s our reflection; a cinemagoer drinking in the big screen luminescence. Gradually, the sounds of sirens fade in and the light playing over the woman’s face is contextualized as the metronomic flash of emergency response vehicles. The camera pulls out to show an unfocused fuzz of activity around a traumatized woman. Mundanity has flipped into atrocity.

The root of the film is the 2012 mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado during a screening of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. But Sutton isn’t specifically dramatizing that massacre (we see the news footage of the trial of Aurora shooter James Holmes in the background of a scene, leaving this as an imagined copycat killing), but »
