Alice Through the Looking Glass movie review: a mirror cracked

24 May 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Believes six impossible things — like implausible character motivations, or big emotions — because they’re in the script, without bothering to earn them. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Alice Through the Looking Glass may bear even less resemblance to anything Lewis Carroll wrote than its predecessor, Tim Burton’s 2010 flick Alice in Wonderland, so perhaps it’s not surprising that it follows up on the adventure that Burton’s adaptation hinted was in store for Alice, something that Carroll would never have imagined for her. Glass opens with adult Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska: Crimson Peak, Madame Bovary), now captain of an English merchant ship in 1847, executing a daring escape from pirates on the high seas. It’s a thrilling sequence, not least because Alice’s all-male crew appears to have no »

Sherlock Holmes 3 Aims for Fall Shoot, More Sequels Possible

19 May 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, while promoting Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr. teased that production on the long-awaited Sherlock Holmes 3 could begin later this year. He also confirmed that director Guy Ritchie will return to the helm. Those details were never confirmed by the studio, but today we have word from producer Joel Silver, who backed up the actor's claims, revealing they are eyeing a fall shoot. The producer also confirmed that they have a script in place, and that both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law will be available to reprise their roles as Holmes and Watson.

Back in 2011, the same year Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was released, Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) came aboard to write the script, but it isn't known if it's this script that the producers are moving forward with, or if other writers have come aboard since then. Unfortunately, Joel Silver didn't »

Sherlock Holmes 3 to be the next of lots of possible sequels

Producer Joel Silver says Sherlock Holmes 3 may start filming in the autumn - and more sequels are planned...

Considering how long it’s taken to get a third Sherlock Holmes movie moving, you’d think that there’d be caution when it comes to talking about more of them.

But no! Producer Joel Silver has all-but-confirmed that the plan is to get Sherlock Holmes 3 in front of the cameras this October. That’s nearly five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, and both Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law will be reprising their roles as Holmes and Watson. Guy Ritchie is expected back to direct.

“Downey says he wants to do it. He’s gotta launch into another Avengers movie, right after the new year, so we’re trying to get it done”, said Silver.

Confirming too that the screenplay is now in place, »

11 DC Comics movies awaiting a greenlight

From Justice League Dark and The Batman to Lobo and Man Of Steel 2 - the DC movies that await a greenlight...

Big spoilers lie ahead for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Whichever side of the imaginary rivalry you fall into, there's no denying that when it comes to movies, DC has got some catching up to do. In the same year as Marvel Studios released their first major crossover, The Avengers, Warner Bros released The Dark Knight Rises, the final chapter in Christopher Nolan's acclaimed Batman trilogy, which was firmly grounded in the notion that Bruce Wayne is the world's only superhero.

Nolan's disinterest in the larger DC toybox left Warners a few steps behind Disney and Marvel, especially after the failure of 2010's Jonah Hex and 2011's Green Lantern, the latter of which was intended as the first step into a wider universe. »

James Coyne is hired for rewrite work on Sherlock Holmes 3, with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law both set to return...

Further signs of progress, it seems, surrounding Sherlock Holmes 3. Notwithstanding the fact that it's been nearly five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Robert Downey Jr has recently expressed his keenness to return to the series, and even suggested last week that the film could be before the cameras this year.

The latest? A fresh writer has been brought aboard the project, to do some rewrite work.

The previous draft of the movie was penned by Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce. Now, James Coyne has been hired by Warner Bros to do some further work on the Sherlock Holmes 3 screenplay.

It's not just Downey Jr likely to return when this one gets going. »

Sherlock Holmes 3 is back in action, James Coyne to rewrite script

25 April 2016 7:22 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I've got one heck of a soft spot for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes franchise, not only are they immensely entertaining, but the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is, for lack of a better word, delightful. It's been close to five years since the release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows and given the sequels success, I'm a little surprised that... Read More »

Robert Downey Jr hints that Sherlock Holmes 3 might finally be happening...

It’s been five years since Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law came together for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Since then, both actors have expressed that they’re keen to make a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure, and director Guy Ritchie is also on board with the idea. The problem has been scheduling, and just fitting the project in.

But there could now be progress.

Robert Downey Jr is currently doing the interview rounds for Captain America: Civil War, and he’s confirmed that a third Sherlock Holmes big screen adventure is edging closer. “We’re talking about it right now”, he told Shortlist. “I can’t wait. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much as I love him – and he damn well should. When we’re making those Sherlock movies »

Robert Downey Jr. Says 'Sherlock Holmes 3' Still In The Works, Might Happen This Year

21 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's been a half decade since "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and while no one is exactly clamoring for a sequel, Robert Downey Jr. is still a mega-franchise star thanks to Marvel, so I'm sure someone at Warner Bros. wants a third movie to happen. But thus far it's been a lot of a talk and little action, with producer Lionel Wigram saying last year they were still figuring out the script, and trying to nail down a story that would work. But it seems some progress has been made since then. “We’re talking about it right now. We can do some preliminary stuff,” Rdj told Shortlist, teasing that the film could start rolling this year. “If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have the whole [movie] done in a week,” the actor quipped. “When we’re making those 'Sherlock' movies it is off the hook.

Confirmed: Robert Downey Jr Shooting 'Sherlock Holmes 3' Later This Year

21 April 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

To the mainstream public, actor Robert Downey Jr is Iron Man. That's where the actor had his triumphant comeback, and that's where he's spent a good portion of his career for the past eight or so years. Some may have forgotten, however, that he's also the lead in another franchise. While it may not be on the same level as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's fairly large in its own right.

That's right. We're talking Sherlock Holmes. Nowadays, we have a few different interpretations of the world-famous Arthur Conan Doyle character: one on the BBC, one on CBS, and one series of big screen adaptations starring Rdj himself.

Both films in the latter film series were directed by Guy Ritchie, and brought in well over $500 million apiece. Not a bad haul for a property that's over 125 years old. However, following the release of the second film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, »

Sherlock Holmes 3 Shoots This Year with Robert Downey Jr.

21 April 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been a long time since we've heard about Sherlock Holmes 3, a direct follow up to the blockbuster smash hit Sherlock Holmes, which hit theaters in 2009 under the direction of Guy Ritchie. It was followed in 2011 by Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Now, star Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed that he is returning for the next sequel, and that Guy Ritchie will be back as well. There is no word yet on whether or not Jude Law will reprise his role as Watson, but the assumption is that he'll also return for a third mystery.

Speaking with ShortList.com, Robert Downey Jr. revealed that production is set to start on a third Sherlock Holmes as early as the end of this year. The man has been super busy playing the iconic Marvel superhero Iron Man over the past couple of years, appearing in three standalone movies, two Avengers adventures, »

‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ is Still Afoot, Says Robert Downey Jr.

21 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes was one of 2009’s more pleasant surprises, a slick, silly, and surprisingly faithful cinematic re-imagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary “consulting detective.” It’s 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, wasn’t nearly as good, replacing much of the original’s charming bombast with very loud bombast. But I’d be lying […]

Robert Downey Jr. Plans to Film 'Sherlock Holmes 3' This Year: 'I Can't Wait'

21 April 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How can Robert Downey Jr. squeeze a third "Sherlock Holmes" movie into 2016, what with worldwide promotion for "Captain America: Civil War" followed by "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and filming for Marvel's two "Avengers: Infinity War" behemoths? It won't be elementary (here all week!), but Downey is itching to crack another case with director Guy Ritchie and co-star Jude Law.

Downey recently talked to ShortList about "Civil War" and name-dropped Ritchie, who directed both 2009's "Sherlock Holmes" and 2011's "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows."

Here's the conversation from there:

You mentioned hanging out with Guy Ritchie in London. Have you had any discussions about a third Sherlock Holmes film?

We're talking about it right now. Now. I can't wait.

Do you mean today?

We can do some preliminary stuff. If we could shoot it on Skype, we could have it done in a week. I know Guy Ritchie loves me as much »

DC's 'Lobo' Movie Brings in 'Wonder Woman' Writer

16 March 2016 8:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Long before Warner Bros. set up their DC Comics Extended Universe, which will start to fully take shape with next week's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the studio was developing Lobo, which had many filmmakers come and go but never seemed to get off the ground. Today we have word from The Wrap that the project is back in the works again, with the studio hiring Wonder Woman screenwriter Jason Fuchs to write the script. This report claims that the writer will start over completely from scratch on the project.

We first reported on Lobo back in 2009, when Guy Ritchie signed on to direct. He ended up leaving the project in 2010, to make Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. After the failures of comic book adaptations such as The Losers and especially Jonah Hex, Lobo was considered a dead project, but in 2012, Brad Peyton came aboard to direct, working »
