Palacio. “Room” star Jacob Tremblay is playing Roberts’ son. Tremblay will play Auggie Pullman, a young boy born with a facial deformity who encounters bullies while attending school for the first time.

Julia Roberts Drama ‘Wonder’ Moves to November (Exclusive)

13 February 2017 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Julia Roberts fans will need to wait a few more months to see the “Pretty Woman” star back on the big screen. “Wonder,” an upcoming drama about a boy with facial differences that features Roberts as his fiercely supportive mother, will hit theaters just in time for Thanksgiving. Lionsgate, the studio behind the film, has moved its debut from April 7, 2017, to Nov. 17, 2017, Variety has learned.

The decision was made after “Wonder” had a strong reaction from test screening audiences, particularly those with families. Lionsgate believes the new date will be more commercially viable. In its former perch, “Wonder” would have faced off against “Going in Style,” a comedy with Alan Arkin and Morgan Freeman; “The Case for Christ,” a faith-based drama; and “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” which features a vocal turn by Roberts as Smurfwillow. Now, “Wonder” will debut on the same weekend as “Justice League, »

Behind-the-scenes images of The Dark Knight’s warehouse fight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have come in for heavy criticism in some quarters, it’s fair to say that the big warehouse showdown between The Dark Knight and Anatoli Knyazev’s goons is one of – if not the – best Batman fight scenes ever put to film, and thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we’ve got a look at some behind the scenes images from the production of said sequence…

“The script was still being worked on when we came in, and that’s generally earlier than a lot of directors have us come in, but Zack likes to really let it flow from early R&D,” said second unit director Damon Caro with regards to the conception and construction of the scene. “Half the time it’s like, ‘try this, try that,’ because there are a »

Zack Snyder shares Batman v Superman before-and-after VFX video

8 February 2017 3:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has shared a twelve minute video detailing the visual effects work on last year’s DC blockbuster, giving us a behind-the-scenes peek at the incredible VFX work on the film with side-by-side comparison shots.

Logan Lerman on Sundance Drama ‘Sidney Hall,’ Aspirations to Direct, Perks and Drawbacks of Fame

26 January 2017 3:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan Lerman knows a thing or two about being famous at a young age. He’s been acting since he was a preteen and at the age of 25, he’s already notched impressive performances in the likes of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Noah,” and the Percy Jackson franchise.

That early brush with notoriety may have served him well for “Sidney Hall,” his new drama that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. In it, Lerman portrays a white hot literary talent, who achieves fame in his 20s, only to turn his back on the public.

Lerman spoke with Variety about the perks and drawbacks of fame, his ambitions to direct, and how he landed the “Sidney Hall” role.

I’ve read that every 20-something actor in Hollywood went after this role. Was it a cattle call? 

Whenever there’s a good script around, it’s usually a cattle call. »

Sundance Review: ‘Sidney Hall’ Squanders a Talented Cast

26 January 2017 2:56 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sometimes a movie just does not have any reason to exist. That would be the case with Shawn Christensen‘s misbegotten Sidney Hall, a film which offers a mystery that never feels mysterious, falls so flat one is bewildered as to why and how such a project could even be green lit.

Squandering a fine class of young talent, which includes Logan Lerman and Elle Fanning, the drama is tediously realized on page by screenwriter Jason Dolan and director Shawn Christensen (Before I Disappear), who appears to be game with stylish visual decisions, but can’t find a way to get the audience engaged.

The film begins with its titular character, Sidney (Lerman), reading aloud to the class an essay that ends up being a masturbatory fantasy about a cheerleader. The conservative teacher, who asked for an essay on the meaning of life, is obviously appalled. A particularly questionable decision »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Sidney Hall’

25 January 2017 11:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are few things more frustrating than a mystery without a satisfying conclusion, unless it’s a mystery that didn’t need to be a mystery in the first place. “Sidney Hall” strings its audience along on a tedious journey that runs out of steam long before reaching an embarrassingly overwrought finale. A cast of promising young talent, led by Logan Lerman and Elle Fanning, struggle with a messy script co-written by Jason Dolan and director Shawn Christensen (“Before I Disappear”), but this shouldn’t register as more than a blip in long careers.

We’re introduced to precocious protagonist Sidney (Lerman) as he reads aloud his sexually explicit story about a popular cheerleader to his high school English class. The teacher had assigned students to write about the meaning of life, and Sidney’s effort is masturbatory in more ways than one. The lurid introduction is played as a joke, »

Superman will “play a big part” in Justice League, confirms Zack Snyder

24 January 2017 1:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To go along with the earlier Justice League image showing Batman, The Flash, Cyborg and Wonder Woman united and ready for battle, director and DC Extended Universe overseer Zack Snyder has made some comments in the print version of Empire regarding the role Superman that will play in the narrative.

“Superman does play a big part in this movie,” said Snyder. “His presence, and lack of presence, are big story points…”

Although he’s been absent from the marketing material so far, it would take a very, very gullible mind to believe that Superman would not have a physical presence in the film at all. Still, some official confirmation of Superman’s return and his importance to the plot is sure to be welcomed by fans of the Man of Steel.

Riverdale: spoiler-free episodes 1 to 4 review

Chris Cummins Jan 24, 2017

Arriving on Netflix UK from Friday the 27th of January, here's a spoiler-free look at The CW's smart and sexy Riverdale makeover...

This spoiler free Riverdale review is based on the first four episodes.

See related  Shane Black: a career retrospective Zack Snyder interview: Batman V Superman

Twenty-one minutes. That's all it takes for Riverdale, The CW's stylish blend of post-Gossip Girl teen drama and Twin Peaks-inspired mystery, to have Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) begin making out. But like everything in this highly addictive show, there's so much more bubbling under the surface than you initially realise. "Check your sell-by date ladies, faux-lesbian kissing hasn't been taboo since 1994" barks cheerleading squad leader/Heathers refugee Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch). It's a delightfully snarky moment that works as a meta commentary on Riverdale itself. Yes, this is a show that mixes sex and murder and noir with Archie, »

'Beauty and the Beast' Star Emma Watson Explains Why She Chose Belle Over Cinderella

18 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Emma Watson made her movie debut at the age of 11 in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and literally grew up on screen. But it wasn't until the series concluded in 2011 that we started to get a sense of her range as an actress, apart from her signature role as Hermione Granger. She acquitted herself quite well in My Week With Marilyn and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, capably handling key supporting roles. Watson really stood out in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, as a fame-obsessed young woman who happily breaks into the homes of celebrities to steal their material goods. Darren Aronofsky's Noah allowed her to showcase her dramatic abilities, such as in this scene opposite Anthony Hopkins. About four years ago, Watson was in very early talks to star...

Emma Watson Explains Why She Turned Down Disney’s Live Action ‘Cinderella’

17 January 2017 1:21 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Post-“Harry Potter,” Emma Watson has actively avoided blockbusters, instead turning her attention to auteurs like Sofia Coppola (“The Bling Ring“) and James Ponsoldt (this spring’s “The Circle“), or using her star power to get small projects off the ground, to varying results (“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” is great, “Colonia” isn’t).

Watch Jimmy Fallon playfully jab Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the 74th Golden Globes

9 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to be the butt of many jokes, this time from Jimmy Fallon during his opening routine at last night’s 74th Golden Globes ceremony.

The joke came when Jimmy Fallon noticed Matt Damon in the audience, to which he delivered a zinger suggesting that Damon’s best acting role was telling Ben Affleck (the two are very good friends) that he liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Louis Ck as Archie?

It may seem like a stretch, but before Archie Comics inspired The CW's forthcoming TV drama Riverdale, that was the pitch presented to Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa about a potential Archie movie. Other potential movie plots included Archie traveling through time and Archie traveling through portals to other dimensions.

"It's like an episode out of Entourage," Aguirre-Sacasa told reporters Sunday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour when discussing one of the first meetings for an Archie movie.

Henry Cavill reveals awesome behind-the-scenes shot from Batman v Superman

5 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new behind-the-scenes shot from the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shows a furious Henry Cavill charging forward, presumably during the film’s fight scene between its two titular superheroes. Check it out below…

Cavill unveiled the picture to the whole world via his Instagram and Facebook and attached a humorous caption along with it that read: “Remembering a time while shooting BvS and they told me I wasn’t allowed my usual Salted Caramel Mochaccino with skinny coconut milk and whip… #NoMercy #NoExcuses #Superman.”

Despite the negative reviews directed toward the film, most of them took no issue with Cavill’s portrayal of the Man of Steel, which, considering how much scrutiny certain actors receive for their interpretations of classic comic book characters, is worth something. The case could even be made that Cavill hasn’t really had the proper material from Dawn of Justice and »
