Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.
Warning – potential spoilers…
So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

Scoring a hat trick, Lionsgate has passed the $1B mark at the international box office for the third year in a row. The exact estimate after this frame is $1,000,302,862. That’s largely off the wings of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 which now has an overseas cume of $334M. This weekend, Mockingjay added $16M in offshore coin, playing in 86 markets. Brazil has now passed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s lifetime gross and that’s also occurred in 24 other territories including Chile, Venezuela, Central America and Portugal. The Top 5 Mockingjay markets are now the UK ($42.9M), Germany ($32.7M), Australia ($24.8M), France ($22.7M) and Mexico ($22.3M).
The global cume on the penultimate Hunger Games installment is now estimated at $611.4M. After leading the international box office for three consecutive weeks, Mockingjay is still playing but will see its flight path begin to shorten somewhat as competition heats up around the »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…
So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”
So although it is a small role it sounds like it »

Filming has wrapped, but we’re still a little way off from an official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (unless it does come out this year, attached to The Hobbit: The Five Armies), but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill churning.
So what do have today? Robin? Doomsday? KGBeast?? Nope. According to Bad Ass Digest, there will be a major Batman character that will already be dead by the time the movie starts.
Still with us? Spoilers ahead…
So, the site is claiming that Detective Jim Gordon will already be dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with script calling for a shot of his memorial plate. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumour that the Batman character will already be dead, with the same site reporting that Robin would have bitten the dust as well.
What do we make of this new rumour? »

Having been shooting since May, cinematographer Larry Fong has taken to Instagram to announce that filming has now wrapped on Warner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The production has taken in locations in Los Angeles, Detroit and Chicago, as well as scenes in New Mexico which were originally planned for Morocco.
Now, let’s see if we get that first teaser trailer which is rumoured to be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies…
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, »

That’s right – after months of speculation, DC have finally announced the main cast for their supervillain team-up movie Suicide Squad. Comic book favourites Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang and Joker will all appear. Which is why we appear so serious.
In other supervillain news, the main foe of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been uncovered and the title and cast for the new James Bond movie has been announced, along with a mighty find automobile (spoiler: it doesn’t double up as a submarine). Find out the answers to all that and more in this week’s episode of the Movie Newsgasm below.
Fmtv will be back next week with our Jurassic World trailer video review and again on Friday for the Movie Newsgasm. »

According to Badass Digest – who are usually spot on with “scoops” – Doomsday will indeed be in the main villain of the piece. Not only that, but Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will have a henchman who is called Anatoli Knyazev in the script. Hardcore DC fans will take pride in knowing that this is in fact DC villain KGBeast, who has battled with Batman in the past. It is unlikely that we’ll see KGBeast in action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are always other films…

As Universal powers full steam ahead with its plans to relaunch its library of classic movie monsters, red-hot writer Jay Basu (Monsters: Dark Continent) has become the latest scribe to join a brain trust being set up to mastermind the studio’s ambitious endeavor. It’s unclear which entry in Universal Monsters Basu will be personally heading up (if any), but his feedback will be incorporated into all projects under the banner.
Super-producers Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Chris Morgan (the Fast & Furious franchise) are serving as the architects of Universal Monsters, which will expand and join together a network of classic monsters. So far, Universal has also recruited Fargo scribe/creator Noah Hawley, Prisoners screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski and Now You See Me scribe Ed Solomon to help with the effort. Out of those writers, only Guzikowski has been tasked with a specific script – for The Wolfman.

20th Century Fox has released entertaining red-band and green-band trailers for the upcoming Vince Vaughn comedy Unfinished Business. The actor re-teamed with Delivery Man director Ken Scott to bring us this new flick that looks funny. This seems like the kind of film that will provide some great entertainment for audiences.
"Vaughn plays a hard-working small business owner who, along with his two associates, played by Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, Michael Clayton) and Dave Franco (Neighbors, Now You See Me), travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable – and unimaginable – way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit."

Louis Letterier knocked it out of the park with the first Now You See Me movie, and Jon M. Chu is looking to duplicate that success with the sequel, which co-star Mark Ruffalo may have just revealed the title for.
This from Instagram:
The sequel, which if you didn’t catch from the pic above will be called Now You See Me: The Second Act, will be set in London and sees Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco return, alongside Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.
Here’s the official synopsis.
One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me 2 only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet.

Over the past few months, we’ve heard some pretty awful proposed titles for Now You See Me 2, Summit’s announced sequel to the 2013 magician caper, including (believe it or not) Now You See Me: Now You Don’t. Luckily, the filmmakers chose to go with a different tactic when subtitling the follow-up, as Mark Ruffalo has just revealed that the full title is Now You See Me: The Second Act.
Hardly the catchiest title, I know, but it does remind us that the sequel will continue to set up the larger universe merely teased in the first installment. In The Second Act, three of the Four Horsemen (Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Jesse Eisenberg – Isla Fisher opted not to return) are drawn out of hiding to face a new enemy, who enlists them for a dangerous heist. Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) also returns to the franchise, »

2013’s Now You See Me was one of those quiet box office successes that kind of flew under the radar. The magician-centric heist picture didn’t garner great reviews, but it opened to a solid $29.3 million and went on to gross $351.7 million worldwide. With an international hit on its hands, Lionsgate/Summit unsurprisingly put the wheels in motion for a sequel. G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu takes over from previous helmer Louis Leterrier this time around with the entire main cast returning plus Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou (The Green Hornet). And now that filming is set to get underway soon, star Mark Ruffalo has revealed the official Now You See Me 2 title: Now You See Me: The Second Act. More after the jump. With pre-production on the sequel now underway, Ruffalo opted to break the news of the Now You See Me 2 »

Now You See Me didn't get a lot of attention but certainly made enough at a box office to garner a sequel when it grossed over $350 million worldwide; there is an audience for this somewhere it seems. Director Jon Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) takes over duties this time and the entire cast with the exception of Isla Fisher is returning. We also get to welcome new magical faces Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou. Mark Ruffalo took to Instagram today to reveal the upcoming »

Now You See Me 2: The Second Act has gotten a full title, as revealed earlier today by returning star Mark Ruffalo. The anticipated sequel has officially begun shooting, with Ruffalo announcing his arrival on set via Instagram. It is not known if any of the other actors have arrived on set.

One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public's adulation with their mind-bending spectacles, the Four Horsemen resurface in Now You See Me 2 only to find themselves face to face with a new enemy who enlists them to pull off their most dangerous heist yet. Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Jay Chou are all new additions to the cast, alongside returning members Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine..

There’s been a lot going on with Universal’s Classic Monsters lately, now that the studio has brought together a team of veteran producers and writers to spearhead a new chapter of Universal Monsters that will reintroduce iconic characters to modern audiences. Recently, we heard that Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley and Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski had been brought into the fold to pen entries in the new cinematic universe, and now we have another name to add to that growing lineup: Now You See Me and Men in Black screenwriter Ed Solomon.
Hawley, Guzikowski and Solomon will form a sort of brain trust with producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, both well-respected scribes in their own right. All of them will work on one another’s movies and help out where needed to ensure that the new Universal Monsters installments feature the kind of serialized storytelling that the studio is looking for. »
