Suicide Squad Comic-Con trailer officially released

13 July 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite a reluctance to release the trailer by Warner Bros. President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution Sue Kroll, the studio has now decided to release the San Diego Comic-Con trailer for David Ayer’s DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad, and we have it for you here in all its HD glory…

Here’s a statement from Sue Kroll: “Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, »

Warner Bros. finished up its big DC panel at the San Diego Comic-Con a short while ago by releasing an epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer [which you can see here]. During the panel, footage was also shown from Suicide Squad [read a description here], and while it hasn’t been released, someone did manage to capture some audio featuring Jared Leto’s Joker. This probably won’t last long, so listen while you can…

Film Rights to Michael Crichton’s Micro Acquired by DreamWorks Studios

26 June 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Andromeda Strain to Jurassic Park to Prey and beyond, the late Michael Crichton offered readers numerous gateways to intelligent escapism on the printed page. Published posthumously, 2011's Micro is no exception. DreamWorks Studios seems to agree, as the company has picked up the film rights to the thriller.

Press Release: "Los Angeles--(Business Wire)--DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the Michael Crichton novel, “Micro,” it was announced today by Michael Wright, CEO of DreamWorks Studios. Frank Marshall is on board to produce, with Sherri Crichton and Laurent Bouzereau set as executive producers for CrichtonSun LLC.

The high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

"Micro" was unfinished when Michael Crichton passed »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
