Avengers: Age of Ultron: Will it out-gross The Avengers?

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on whether Avengers: Age of Ultron will out-gross The Avengers…

Marvel Studios is on top of the world when it comes to box office success and is just two months away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest grossing film franchise of all time when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits screens.  Avengers: Age of Ultron is a shoe in to be one of the highest-grossing films of 2015 and might even break a few records. However, what I don’t think it will do is make more than its predecessor (which earned over $1.5 billion worldwide in 2012), and for a few reasons.

Let’s talk about the top five highest grossing films of all time, what they mean and why they ended up in the top five. Avatar at number one on $2.788 billion followed by Titanic ($2.788 billion), The Avengers ($1.519 billion), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($1.342 billion) and »

Editorial: Can The Power Rangers Reboot Actually Work?

28 February 2015 9:19 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I will not lie, I grew up a Power Rangers fanatic. Sure, I was not around when the original series was on, but I grew up with Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder, two epic iterations of the series. Last year, it was announced that Lionsgate (known for The Hunger Games series) and Saban (creators of the Power Rangers) would be teaming up to bring a new take on the rangers to the big screen. Following this announcement, we received official word that two of the most talented blockbuster writers had joined the film, and would develop the screenplay. Star Trek producer Roberto Orci also joined the film as a producer, and while many had a problem with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the film was not Orci’s fault, with the star of the film, Andrew Garfield, even calling Orci’s original screenplay “beautiful.”    Now, on paper this film seems to »

The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson interested in playing Spider-Man

27 February 2015 5:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of Marvel and Sony reaching a deal so Spider-Man can feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been a fair amount of speculation on who could play the friendly neighbourhood wall crawler. If reports are to be believed, Sony and Marvel are looking at Logan Lerman (Fury) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) as the front runners.

Back before Andrew Garfield was cast as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one man who did audition for the role was Josh Hutherson (The Hunger Games). Now that the role is available again, would be interested in putting on the suit?

“Yeah, of course I’d think about doing it: It’s Spider-Man, that’d be really cool,” Hutcherson told Yahoo! Movies. “There’s not been any conversations about that, but who knows what would happen?”

'Spider-Man': Marvel May Have More Control Than Sony

25 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are still buzzing over Marvel and Sony's announcement earlier this month that Spider-Man will finally join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the beloved web slinger reportedly set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, although that hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel yet. Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that Tom Rothman will step in for Amy Pascal, who left her job as Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman and Motion Picture Group president just weeks ago. Some have worried that this may hinder the new Spider-Man reboot, since Tom Rothman oversaw superhero flops such as Daredevil and Elektra during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. However, a new report from Latino-Review reveals that Marvel may have more control over Spidey than originally thought.

The site backs up previous reports that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach are "producers in name only" with the new Spider-Man movie, »

Tom Rothman’s Top Priorities at Sony: Cut Costs, Make Peace

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment endured a corporate tsunami last winter on the scale that few Hollywood players have ever faced, after its inner workings were laid bare by hackers.

By picking Tom Rothman, 60, an exec who approaches business and life with hurricane-force intensity, to run the studio, Sony’s leadership is unleashing another round of disruption in Culver City.

The surprise appointment by Spe chief executive Michael Lynton is intended to forsake the status quo, rein in costs and create more movie franchises to compete with rival studios. Rothman’s elevation is also expected to roil Sony’s executive suite and on-lot producers, and could potentially strain relations with some top talent.

The safe bet in the days leading up to Rothman’s ascension was that Sony would tap Doug Belgrad, the well-liked motion picture group president, to succeed ousted studio chief Amy Pascal. But Rothman’s prior experience co-running Fox Filmed Entertainment, »

9 Ways The Amazing Spider-Man Almost Turned Out Awesome

25 February 2015 8:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures/Marvel

The Amazing Spider-Man is now officially over. Andrew Garfield is a former Peter Parker, The Sinister Six will never assemble (at least not with Dane DeHaan at the head) and you’ll never have to suffer through Electro’s dub-step soundtrack again.

Across two films, Sony managed to take the once most popular superhero in the world and turn him into a bland establishment that life-long fans couldn’t give a toss about. After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 under-performed, the studio were so desperate they went running to Marvel involved, and thus the hero will be rebooted yet again in next year’s Captain America: Civil War (if not in another movie before).

It’s not an overly surprising run of events. The whole sub-franchise was built on Sony’s desire to retain the character (they have to make a new film every few years, or the »

Batman V Superman: Hans Zimmer discusses the music

24 February 2015 11:03 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hans Zimmer isn't writing the new Batman theme - but he is working on something for Wonder Woman and Aquaman...

More than any other composer in the superhero genre, Hans Zimmer has been able to leave his musical stamp. Sure, John Williams composed iconic soundscapes for Superman, and Danny Elfman also has a beloved legacy with both Batman and Spider-Man (Ang Lee's Hulk movie, too). However, Hans Zimmer has written themes for all three of those superheroes, and he’s not done yet.

While chatting with MTV at the Oscars, Zimmer talked about scoring for multiple heroes in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Because in addition to following up his memorable work of creating an all-American Superman sound for the 21st century on Man Of Steel, we now have new heroes that he has never worked with before, including Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Hell, for all we know, Cyborg »

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) movie review: winged infamy

24 February 2015 9:43 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s all a bit satirical. Or maybe not. Look, over there, Shakespeare in a superhero cape! I’m “biast” (pro): like the director, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

It was one thing when Birdman was the scrappy little indie that could. (Never mind that it was an indie with a budget of $22 million and an A-list cast.) Then it was just a snooty pretentious film with an arty gimmick that hardly anyone had seen. But now it has been crowned as the very best movie of 2014 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. The people who are the most Hollywood that people can be have officially spoken. And what they have said is, “We hate superhero movies. We hate the fans who make superhero movies huge. But we love your money, so thanks for that. »

Will Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange Have An American Or English Accent?

23 February 2015 9:51 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

So, Benedict Cumberbatch evaded answering that pretty well! It's an interesting question though. Doctor Strange is obviously American in the comic books, but he's the kind of character you can imagine an English accent suiting well. Sadly, it will likely be a long time until we find out either way! In the second video, Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Lupita N’yongo (12 Years A Slave) are a little more forthcoming about their respective Star Wars roles, but not much. The latter has a mystery role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while Jones has been cast as the female lead in Gareth Edwards' 2016 spinoff. What do you guys think of these comments?

Maps to the Stars movie review: kill it with fire

23 February 2015 4:18 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Quite hilarious in a deeply disturbing way that you won’t want to look straight on at, lest it forever ruin you as a lover of movies. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly like Cronenberg’s work, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Oh, did you have dreams of going to Hollywood, becoming a star, and living happily ever after? Maps to the Stars will put paid to them. This is one of Canadian horror auteur David Cronenberg’s (Cosmopolis, Eastern Promises) least trippy films: it’s hardly surreal at all. Which makes it all too plausible as it looks askew at the living nightmares that are the lives of the Weiss family of Los Angeles, all of whom are deeply entrenched in the industry. Except the one thing they think is horrific — and it’s pretty bad »

'Spider-Man': Donald Glover Ends Miles Morales Campaign

20 February 2015 5:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2010, when Sony Pictures was rebooting their Spider-Man franchise, a grassroots fan campaign sprung up for Community star Donald Glover to play the Miles Morales version of the web slinger, which the actor himself embraced. Despite a strong campaign, the studio eventually went with Andrew Garfield, who starred in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now, of course, Sony is rebooting the character once more, and, while promoting his new thriller The Lazarus Effect, in theaters February 27, Donald Glover was asked if he planned on campaigning for the role once again. Unfortunately for Donald Glover fans, the actor said he would still be honored to play Spider-Man, but it isn't something he will actively pursue.

"Of course, I would always be honored to play Spider-Man. It's Spider-Man. But I just want the Spider-Man movie to be dope, that's all I want. I'm leaving it to them. »

The Amazing Spider-man 2 "Environment Shot Build" Video

19 February 2015 5:30 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important conflict has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin. It's great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp. »

Harvey Dent And The Dollmaker Arrive In New Gotham Images

17 February 2015 7:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

A batch of new images from Gotham‘s strangely-titled upcoming episode, “Everyone Has A Cobblepot,” have appeared online, showing the return of young Assistant District Attorney Harvey Dent – played by Masters of Sex alum Nicholas D’Agosto – and the debut of the creepy serial killer known as the Dollmaker.

The Borgias and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor Colm Feore was cast as the Dollmaker (or in this case, Dr. Dulmacher) late last month, and based on the episode’s synopsis, he’s the one behind the creepy organ donation ring that Fish Mooney was recently caught up in, which makes sense considering he was attached to child smuggling earlier in the season as well.

Check out the new Gotham episode synopsis below, and be sure to tune in when “Everyone Has a Cobblepot” airs on March 2nd, 2015.
