Robert Downey Jr confirms Sherlock Holmes 3: 'We want it to be the best'

7 October 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Downey Jr has confirmed that Sherlock Holmes 3 is in development.

During a question and answer session on Reddit, the actor revealed that the third instalment in Guy Richie's series is now in the works, following the 2011 release of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Asked for an update on the film's status, Downey Jr said: "Yes, we have a Sherlock 3 in development. We want it to be the best of the series, so that's a pretty tall order."

Last year, Jude Law told Digital Spy that he believed writing had already begun on the project, but confirmed that at the time Warner Bros had not yet financially backed it.

Producer Dan Lin first teased the film in January 2013, when he confirmed that Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) was working on the script.

This followed an earlier report that Ritchie had signed up to direct the third film, but »

Long Before Downey Jr. There Was Gillette: Lost Holmes Movie Has Been Unearthed

2 October 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sherlock Holmes' movie found at Cinémathèque Française (image: William Gillette in 'Sherlock Holmes') Sherlock Holmes, a long-thought-lost 1916 feature starring stage performer and playwright William Gillette in the title role, has been discovered in the vaults of the Cinémathèque Française. Directed by the all-but-forgotten Arthur Berthelet for the Chicago-based Essanay production company, the approximately 90-minute movie is supposed to be not only the sole record of William Gillette's celebrated performance as Arthur Conan Doyle's detective, but also the only surviving Gillette film.* In the late 19th century, William Gillette himself wrote the play Sherlock Holmes, which turned out to be a mash-up of various stories and novels featuring the detective, chiefly the short stories "A Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Final Problem." ("May I marry Holmes?" Gillette, while vying for the role, telegraphed Conan Doyle. The latter replied, "You may marry or murder or do What you like with him. »

DC superhero movies that never got the greenlight

27 August 2014 3:26 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We may be in the golden age of superhero cinema, but here are some DC movies that never made it…

Naysayers would have you believe that Hollywood chucks bucket-loads of cash at any old comic book movie pitch that happens to float through their corner-office window, get stuck to their shoe or come to them miraculously as an on-the-toilet epiphany.

However, this is not the case, particularly with DC comics characters. While some films that do get made may seem like bog-fodder (oh hey, Green Lantern), there are plenty of comic adaptation pitches, in-development scripts and passion projects that have ended up not getting made for various reasons.

We had a rummage through the aeons of DC cinema history (also known as extensive Googling) and pulled together all the comic book movie projects we could find that ended up in the bin of crushed dreams for Batman, Superman and more. »

25 August 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Guy Ritchie has been flying under the radar lately (his last film was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows back in 2011), but we’ll finally get to see the helmer’s next project in the summer of 2015. After numerous date changes, Warner Bros. has settled on an August 2015 release for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which reintroduces the 1964 TV series to a new generation.

New official images from the spy blockbuster appeared in Empire’s latest issue, and you can check them out below. The accompanying article didn’t offer much by way of plot details, but the movie will find two spies (Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill) forced to team up to combat a shared threat.

Here’s WB’s official synopsis:

Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile »

Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass Kicks Off Production

4 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.

Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass Officially Starts Production

4 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going.  Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release.  Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.  

I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released.  Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great.  So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it.  From the press release:

Heaven Is for Real movie review: extraordinary claims, no evidence

30 May 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

You’d think any movie that an all-powerful deity had a hand in would be awesome, right? Turns out, not so much. There’s barely even a story here. I’m “biast” (pro): always want to love Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly

I’m “biast” (con): total atheist

I have not read the source material

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

Heaven is for real? Proven by a movie?! Well, no. At best, this cinematic sermon almost humbly acknowledges that even Christians know their fairy tale about a heaven of fluffy white clouds and Jesus in a bathrobe sounds like, you know, a fairy tale that is hard to accept at face value. At worst, it’s a shameless money grab by a family in desperate financial straits cashing in on the fantasies of their little boy. I don’t see how either option — or »
