Margaret and Anne Marie here, reporting from AFI Fest ("presented by [corporation]!").
Last night the AFI and the La Times kicked off a series of panel discussions with its "Young Hollywood Roundtable," whose panelists ranged widely in age and perspective but are all of whom making their mark on the movie business. Jenny Slate, writer/star of critical hit Obvious Child and former SNL castmember, was joined by Jena Malone (Inherent Vice, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), and Joey King (Wish I Was Here, FX's Fargo).
Here are 8 lessons we learned from the Young Hollywood Roundtable:
1. Queen Latifah's royal legacy is enduring and eternal. When asked who her inspiration was, Joey King informed the audience that Queen Latifah is underrated. What followed was a 5 minute Latifah love-fest where Jenny Slate promised a detailed list of reasons why Queen Latifah »

Daniel Radcliffe stars in Horns, a nightmarish tale adapted from Joe Hill’s book of same name. One of the immediate changes to the film from page to screen has a deep impact on the story, and it is the transition of Radcliffe’s character – Ig Perrish – from being a student to a professional DJ.
As a result the soundtrack deeply mirrors both Ig’s past and his actions within the film.
One of the very first scenes, in fact, is scored by David Bowie’s iconic track, “Heroes”. Ig picks the LP out of a wall full of record spines, drops the needle and is immediately transported back to the life he enjoyed with his since-murdered girlfriend, Merrin (Juno Temple).
The rest of the musical cues for the first half of the film are familiar, if not slightly clichéd choices. “Heroes” is 36 years old and one of Bowie’s best loved tracks, »

Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics recently released their full slate of upcoming comic book movies through the year 2020. Outside of Justice League and Wonder Woman, two other announcements really stood out. The Flash and Aquaman will be getting their own films in 2018. With The Flash TV show just premiering to great numbers it makes sense to bring that character to the cineplexes. Well DC has other ideas about who will be playing The Flash.
Along with the announcement of the film, it was announced that The Flash would be played by Ezra Miller. The young actor is best known for his roles in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Critics have praised his performance in both films and he is looking like a standout star of this generation. Well that wasn’t enough for comic book fans.

American author Abbi Glines is showing a lot of faith in neophyte Australian producer/writer Gary O.Toole.
Glines has just sold an option on her novel While It Lasts to O.Toole, who recently launched production banner Red Rock Pictures after splitting with his producing partner at Three Kings Pictures.
O.Toole was alerted to the novel in 2013 by young Aussie actor Addam Bramich, who was keen to get the rights as he saw the project as a potential starring vehicle for himself.
At the time the novel was in The New York Times young adult best-seller list behind The Fault in our Stars, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Divergent. The producer initiated negotiations with the Alabama-based author and her New York agent and clinched the deal overnight.
.Abbi has taken a punt on us,. O.Toole told If. .I don.t think she wanted the rights »

Earlier today, it was announced that The Conjuring director James Wan had officially signed on for the horror film’s sequel, which was recently delayed and is now slated for release in 2016. However, buried in that news story was a little hint pointing toward another project on Wan’s slate: A DC Comics film.
Wan’s Conjuring 2 directing gig comes with a nice producing deal at New Line Cinema, but Warner Brothers is interested in keeping him behind the camera for as long as possible. They see him as “an emerging major filmmaker” and they hope he will grow in that capacity on their lot. So, what better way to keep Wan around for a bit longer than hand him the reins to one of the recently-announced high profile comic book films slated for release between 2016 and 2020?
The director will reportedly “make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC. »

The response to Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash has been vocal to say the least. Some fans believe he's completely wrong for the role due to the fact he shares very few similarities with the Barry Allen from the comic books, while others would have preferred to see the small scren Flash (Grant Gustin) get the chance to speed onto the big screen. The casting appeared to come out of nowhere, though Miller's physical similarities to Adam Driver (who was said to be up for the role of Nightwing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before picking Star Wars Episode VII) could mean that the actor playing The Fastest Man Alive was being decided on long before we even realised! Anyone who has seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower or We Need to Talk About Kevin will know that Miller is an incredible actor, and there's »
Which seems to be yet another controversial casting decision, as Ezra Miller will be portraying Barry Allen/The Flash on the big screen. I'm going to state my reasonings as to why I support him in the role. He's A Talented Actor I'm not familiar with Ezra Miller, so surely Warner Bros saw something in him to end up nabbing the role as Barry Allen/The Flash. Particularly looking at his roles in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and We Need To Talk About Kevin, meaning he's incredibly talented no doubt. I'll be sure to watch those films at some point, in order to get an idea what he'll be like as Barry. I Like The Casting.. Simply Because It's Different I don't expect everyone to like this choice, I get that. But for me this is interesting, seeing similarities in reaction to Jesse Eisenberg being cast as Lex »

David Ayer's "Fury" rumbles into theaters today. We've talked to Ayer, we've talked to composer Steven Price and now, one of the stand-outs from the cast, Logan Lerman. Lerman has been carving an interesting path for himself ever since he started in this business as a young boy. He debuted alongside Mel Gibson in 2000's "The Patriot," though most probably sat up and took notice in TV's "Jack & Bobby" or James Mangold's "3:10 to Yuma" remake. He's dabbled in franchise ("Percy Jackson") and sparked on the indie scene ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower"). This year he's in a pair of epic productions from Ayer and Darren Aronofsky ("Noah"). In "Fury," his character is very much the eyes through which the audience experiences the world of the film and he's a great anchor throughout. In "Noah," meanwhile, he's paired with Russell Crowe again after working with him in »

Brad Pitt is the marquee name in Fury - but he's not the only reason to go see it. David Ayer (End of Watch) directed the WWII drama about a five-man tank unit carrying out a dangerous mission on enemy territory, and it's not for the faint of heart. From the very first scene, Fury shows the extreme brutality of war. Likewise, Pitt's character, ominously nicknamed "Wardaddy," hands out his own style of punishment. He's a highlight of the film, but there's so much more to this movie that will captivate you. If you're thinking about seeing it, you absolutely should. Here's why. The chemistry between the actors is palpable. The movie opens with the loss of a member of Wardaddy's five-man team. He and his men (Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, and Shia Labeouf) have been fighting together for years, and their group dynamic shifts when a young new soldier »
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's six children played a large role in their parents' recent wedding - after all, it was the kids who urged them to get married and even penned the couple's vows. So how are Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox enjoying their mom and dad being husband and wife? "They like it," Pitt told People at the world premiere of his new movie Fury in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, pausing thoughtfully and smiling. "They like it." Pitt spent time with members of the military, including retired WWII veterans, at the patriotic premiere. »

Today, Warner Bros. officially laid down the gauntlet to Marvel as they announced and named a whole bunch of movies which they’re intending to release all of the way up to 2020. The list of films obviously contain quite a few DC titles, and the big news to come out of the announcement, made by Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara at the Time Warner Investor Day, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara, was that a movie based on The Flash is set for 2018, starring Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower), and Jason Momoa will officially play Aquaman in a stand-alone film in the same year.
Before all of that though, the WB will release Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016, a solo Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot in 2017 and Justice League: Part One in the same year, which will be directed by Zack Snyder. »

Following the huge news from Marvel Studios this week, with Robert Downey Jr. set to join the cast of Captain America 3, kicking off a Civil War adaptation, Warner Bros. has now dropped its own piece of massive DC movie news, revealing its full line-up of superhero offerings set to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
And that’s not all, as it has also been revealed that Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) has been cast as the big screen version of The Flash, while Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) has finally been confirmed as Aquaman.
Here’s the full schedule of DC movies slated to arrive between 2016 and 2020:

Just one small part of Warner Bros.' massive announcement today that laid out their DC Comics movie slate was the news that Ezra Miller will play Barry Allen in The Flash, debuting in 2018. The actor will likely have a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where the entire Justice League team will presumably be revealed for the first time.
The Flash doesn't have a writer or director attached at this time, but it will occupy one of two 2018 release dates (March 23, 2018 or July 27, 2018) that Warner Bros. set in August, with Jason Momoa's Aquaman movie taking the other slot. Ironically, the news comes just one week after The Flash TV series debuted on The CW, starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, but the show will have no connection to this burgeoning movie universe.
Not to be overshadowed by Marvel’s big Captain America 3 / Iron Man / Civil War rumour action earlier this week, Warner Bros. and DC have gone ahead and slapped a big, fat slab of news down on the table with a release date binge for films including Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad. They have also finally given confirmation that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman and revealed that The Perks Of Being A Wallflower’s Ezra Miller will be The Flash.Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes took the opportunity to liven up an otherwise staid shareholder earnings meeting to drop word about Miller’s casting along with the other details.The Flash – which will not be related to the just-launched Us TV drama, where Grant Gustin plays the speedy character – will find Miller as Barry Allen, who awakens from a coma to discover that he now has super-speed.

Amongst the handful of DC bombshell announcements today was the news that Ezra Miller had been cast as The Flash, with the character getting his own solo outing in 2018 and presumably joining the Justice League film as well, which we now know will be directed by Zack Snyder. This piece of casting might disappoint some as it means that the DC TV Universe will be separate from the film one (as Grant Gustin plays the character on television), but it’s still pretty exciting stuff.
DC’s master plan is starting to come together now, with news of several other characters getting the solo outing treatment (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg) as well, and of course, the announcement of the Justice League film being split into two parts and arriving in 2017 and 2019, respectively. As for how The Flash will factor into all this, early reports say that he’ll »
