According to a new report from Batman News, a Hollywood Producer, named Daniel Alter, hopped on Twitter to reveal new spoiler scoopage for the upcoming "Batman Vs. Superman" flick. It turns out that Ben Affleck's version of Batman will be semi-retired, and also controls drones from his Batcave. Apparently, Daniel has worked with Warner Bros on other movies: Hitman,The Apparition ,and is scheduled to produce Jonny Quest for them. His official tweet went like this: "Can't wait for #BatmanvsSuperman.. #batfleck semi-retired/not speaking to Robin anymore.. Controlling drones from the batcave." In related news, movie director/podcaster, Kevin Smith, revealed that the new Batsuit is going to be like something we've never seen before and amazing. The movie is set to hit theaters on July 17th, 2015. »
A new tweet has arrived people. A tweet! Yes, it’s Friday and we're all halfway into the weekend, so let’s get right into it. What are we carping on about? Superhero in-the-know blogger Umberto Gonzalez has been generally on the money with his “Batman Vs. Superman” reporting of late. This morning he tweeted he was about to retweet a “scoop” about the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed superhero film for Warner Bros. And so he did, retweeting film producer Daniel Alter who tweeted “Can't wait for #BatmanvsSuperman.. #batfleck semi-retired/not speaking to Robin anymore… Controlling drones from the batcave.” First off, why should you believe Alter? While he isn’t a producer on “Batman Vs. Superman” he does have some ties to Warner Bros. (an exec-producer on “The Apparition” and a still-in-development “Johnny Quest” film). He also appears to be a fan of the characters for what that’s worth. »

The casting of Ben Affleck as Batman caught Everyone off guard. The way I found out about it was not on twitter, but when the Variety newsletter came into my inbox with the news. I thought it was one of their Hollywood & Swine humor pieces. I couldn’t believe it. Then the Deadline newsletter came in next and I knew it was no joke. Then my phone started blowing up and it set in… Warners got their man. Personally, I think it is an Awesome choice. I dig Affleck as an actor and especially as a filmmaker. I’m excited to see what he brings to the table.
The conversation with my friends and peers have been nonstop since the news broke. I had one cool conversation with my Kings Of Con partner Daniel Alter and told him he should articulate his thoughts into an article. Lo and behold here it is below so enjoy. »

Garret Dillahunt (“Raising Hope”), Tom Felton (Harry Potter), and Jake Abel (The Host) are set to star in Ghosts Of The Pacific, the true story of three WWII Navy flyers cast adrift on the South Pacific in 1942. The feature will be produced by The American Film Company, which specializes in making movies based on true stories from America’s past.
Producer and American Film Co. president Brian Falk will be making his directorial debut recounting the incredible journey of pilot Harold Dixon (Dillahunt), bombardier Tony Pastula (Felton), and radioman Gene Aldrich (Abel) – virtual strangers assigned to a scouting mission on January 16, 1942. When they are forced to ditch their plane, the men are left with no food, water, or supplies; only a 4×8-foot yellow life raft to keep them afloat on a dangerous ocean.

The Haunting in Connecticut 2 Ghosts of Georgia is the directorial debut for Tom Elkins. He was the editor for the original The Haunting in Connecticut (2009) and The Apparition (2012). This is his first attempt at directing but is supported by a solid cast that includes Katie Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica and Chad Michael Murray fresh off of One Tree Hill. All in all this looks like another hauntingghost story in the same vein as So many others. When nothing new is offered on story front so much more depends on the execution putting a lot of pressure on a rookie director. »
Lucas Till co-stars opposite Haley Bennett and Greene (Twilight, The Apparition). Olly Blackburn (Donkey Punch) helms, with Anthony Jaswinski penning the script. Production on the film that will be distributed by Dimension Films later this year is currently under way in New Orleans.
Blackburn recently told EW that we'll see a whole new side of Greene in Random: "She plays Violet, the worst of the lot." Violet is the sociopathic leaser of a gang that targets a student left alone on a college campus over a holiday break. "I told them I'd be willing to get all the piercings [required for the role]," said Greene, who did intense research to play Violet. But in the end they used fakes so Greene added, »

Once again, the spirit world is restless in The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia. Getting a limited release alongside VOD platforms on February 1st, Ghosts of Georgia finds Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray), his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer), daughter Heidi (Emily Alyn Lind) and his sister-in-law Joyce (Katee Sackhoff) moving into their new Georgia home. What they never could have anticipated is the terrifying secret the grounds hold or the malevolent presence that threatens them all. Director Tom Elkins (editor of The Apparition, Haunting in Connecticut and White Noise 2: The Light) spoke exclusively to me by phone about crafting a spooky ghost story.
You’ve edited quite a few horror movies. What made this an interesting vehicle for your directorial debut?
It’s partly what the first film, Haunting in Connecticut, had and that is this awesome mix of heart and horror, which I think is a »

Despite an eerie premise, The Apparition quickly squanders any of the chills the opening sequence managed to create and instead presents a .by the numbers. haunting movie that fails to give the audience one real scare. Written and directed by Todd Lincoln, the film stars Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton, Julianna Guill, Luke Pasqualino, Rick Gomez, Anna Clark, and Marti Matulis. The film opens with grainy documentary footage of 1973 experiment, called "The Charles Experiment," where six people attempted to contact a dead man named Charles Reamer by staring at a drawing of his picture in hopes of harnessing their combined psychic powers to summon his spirit into the room. This opening sequence is the scariest moments »
