Nicolas Winding Refn would like to direct a Batgirl movie

26 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Nicolas Winding Refn is keen to go from female-led horror to female-led superheroes, with The Neon Demon director revealing to Business Insider that he’d like to direct a Batgirl movie.

“God, I would love to make [a superhero movie], it would probably be great fun,” said Refn. “I just don’t know when it’s going to happen. I very much enjoy my freedom, creatively, but I also would love to make one of those big Hollywood films that costs a lot of money and has a lot of people running around with cell phones and all that insanity. What ones are left? You know the one I want to do? I want to make Batgirl. Let’s get Warner working on it.”

Gods Of Egypt review

17 June 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

google+

Gerard Butler shouts and transforms into a robot in Alex Proyas’ fantasy Gods Of Egypt. Ryan reviews a screamingly odd film...

Ancient Egypt - a land of pyramids, colossal statues and unconvincing scorpions. Did you know that, in the time of the pharoahs, gods lived among ordinary mortals and could transform into huge, fire-spouting robots? Director Alex ProyasGods Of Egypt may have been demolished by critics when it appeared in the Us earlier this year, but it’s certainly educational.

Proyas previously brought us such dark and moody delights as The Crow and Dark City, but Gods Of Egypt is completely unlike anything he’s made before. It’s big, it’s camp, it’s awash with CGI which varies in quality from shot to shot. In style and tone, it belongs in that same odd category of action fantasy films as Louis Leterrier’s Clash Of The Titans »

‘The Neon Demon’ Star Elle Fanning Was Driven To Push Her Dark Character Beyond the Script

16 June 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Tuesday night was the premiere of Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest film “The Neon Demon,” about a young, aspiring model (Elle Fanning) who breaks into the L.A. modeling world only to find a cabal of beauty-obsessed women who want to tear her down limb from limb and take what she has. The film had it world premiere at Cannes and received a decidedly mixed reception, but now the film will enter theaters next week and the public will come to their own conclusion about Refn’s horror film about beauty.

At the premiere, star Elle Fanning told Variety that she was drawn to the film because of its horror features, and especially the chance to delve deep into a role not usually assigned to her. In fact, she took her character to an even darker place than initially envisioned. “I think everyone has a side to them that is a little darker,” she says. “Going to that place was actually very, very fun and we made her a little bit darker than the script was initially.”

Elle Fanning has been acting since she was three years old, making star turns in films like Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Babel” and Sofia Coppola’s “Somewhere” at a young age. She played the main love interest in J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8,” and Sleeping Beauty in “Maleficent.” She’s also set to appear in Mike Mills’ latest film “20th Century Women.”

The Neon Demon” will open in theaters on June 24th.

Interview: Legendary SFX Artist Mark Coulier Talks Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

31 May 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 1813, renowned writer Jane Austen published a book called Pride and Prejudice, which tells the story of the Bennet sisters, who are gussied up and married off to wealthy suitors, one by one. The only sister who seems to question this system is Elizabeth, the rebellious member of the family, who feels strong disdain for the system that treats her more like property than a proper citizen. In 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith put a new twist on the old tale by creating a parody novel called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which loosely follows the same basic outline, but adds an entirely different obstacle to the tale: the living dead.

In Grahame-Smith’s story, the girls are not only fighting for the right to be married into regal families, but also battling for their lives on a daily basis. An outbreak has occurred within these humble streets, and now flesh-eating zombies »

Disney Scribe Linda Woolverton Offers Maleficent 2 Status Update, Talks Beauty And The Beast

30 May 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In light of the magical, record-breaking reveal, Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast is the talk of the town at Disney, after the first trailer stormed past 90 million views in only 24 hours.

Pegged to dance into theaters in early 2017, Condon’s modern reimagining is part of a grand vision at the House of Mouse to reintroduce its prized catalog of fairytale adventures, replete with live-action sequences and bleeding-edge CGI. In 2016, we’ve already seen The Jungle Book and, more recently, James Bobin’s fantasy prequel Alice Through the Looking Glass maintain that momentum, which will eventually lead to Angelina Jolie’s return in Maleficent 2.

Beyond a confirmation that it exists, there’s not much to report regarding the nascent sequel. But while doing the rounds for Alice Through the Looking Glass, esteemed Disney scribe Linda Woolverton offered a brief status report on the film, revealing that at “this very minute, »

X-Men: Apocalypse Beats Alice 2 at the Box Office with $65M

29 May 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two new releases hit theaters this weekend, both vying for the box office crown over the Memorial Day holiday. 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass both squared off in hopes of taking the holiday weekend box office crown, but it was X-Men: Apocalypse that came away as the winner, taking in $65 million. Unfortunately, this opening weekend is the lowest in this new prequel trilogy.

Box Office Mojo reports that X-Men: Apocalypse's opening is the lowest debut since 2011's X-Men: First Class, which debuted with $55.1 million back in 2011. This debut also comes in far lower than 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which took in $90.8 million, and significantly lower than the studio's X-Men spinoff Deadpool, which took in $132.4 million, en route to becoming the franchise's top-grossing movie with $362.7 million domestic and $763.1 million worldwide.

X-Men: Apocalypse debuted this weekend in 4,150 theaters, with Disney debuting Alice Through the Looking Glass »

Disney's Little Mermaid Live-Action Movie May Not Happen

25 May 2016 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, we reported that Universal and Focus Features are moving forward with a live action remake of The Little Mermaid, which has Chloe Moretz on board to star as the title character. We haven't heard much about this project since then, but now it seems Disney is eyeing their own live action remake of this classic tale created by Hans Christian Andersen. Nothing is set in stone, but Disney has reportedly engaged in early talks with producers, including some who have longtime ties to the studio. The studio hasn't officially green lit the project, though, with the Universal movie probably coming first. Which could halt the project until further down the road, or all together.

Deadline reports that Disney's production heads recently heard a new take on The Little Mermaid, and are currently contemplating whether or not to move forward with the project. It isn't known who came up with this new idea, »

Back in 2010, Disney's blockbuster Alice in Wonderland set the box office on fire, taking in a whopping $334 million domestically and over $1 billion worldwide, which helped spawn Disney's successful string of live-action fairy tale adaptations. In the years that followed, Disney released hits such as Maleficent and last year's Cinderella. This year, fans will be heading back to Wonderland with the studio's sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, arriving in theaters May 27. As we get ready for the theatrical release, Disney has released three clips which shed some light on the story.

The first of these clips, which debuted at the Disney Movie Trailers YouTube page, reveals Alice's (Mia Wasikowska) triumphant return to Wonderland, where she learns that the Hatter (Johnny Depp) has gone mad, becoming darker than ever.

You may call her Professor Angelina Jolie. The Maleficent star has been named one of the London School of Economics and Political Science's new visiting professors who will be giving lectures as part of the school's new Master's program in Women, Peace and Security.
