George Clooney Once Again Apologises For "Destroying" The Batman Franchise

24 May 2015 4:36 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman and Robin. Like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it's a movie only idiots or children enjoyed*. Too mean? Anyway, in the video below, George Clooney talks in detail about his experience filming that movie and why he regrets being the one to nearly destroy the Batman franchise. It's hard not to feel a little sorry for Clooney when he talks about how he thought at the time it would be a smart career move (he's still done well though, so it's not that big of a deal). It sounds like filming Batman and Robin was a unique few months anyway, so check out the video below for his comments. *in My opinion, anyway. You know what else sucks? Pacific Rim!  »

Beyond Fright: Heist Gone Wrong Film 7 Minutes Gets Poster/Trailer/Release Date

22 May 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I don’t know about you fright fanatics, but I’m a massive fan of heist films. Dog Day Afternoon, Heat, and every other great entry into what can easily be one of the best intense genres around if done right. One film that seems to be a good contender into that kind of movie is Jay Martin’s 7 Minutes (hitting Theaters, VOD & iTunes June 26) . Having cut his teeth being the storyboard artist on films like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Amazing Spiderman, I Am Legend, and Constantine, Martin made the transition to director,when helmed music videos for everyone from Cold War Kids and Deathcab For Cutie, to legendary rapper Nas.

It’s pretty obvious that Jay knows what he wants in front of the camera and how to get it and the heist film led by Luke Mitchell (TV’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L. »

Transformers Universe Brain Trust Grows To Include Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn And More

20 May 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount isn’t messing around with plans to evolve its mega-grossing Transformers franchise into an expansive cinematic universe. Today brings news that I, Robot scribe Akiva Goldsman, previously tasked by Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura with assembling a writer’s room to pitch ideas for Transformers spinoffs and a multi-part sequel, has finalized his brain trust – and it’s a pretty stunning lineup.

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim 2 and The Incredible Hulk‘s Zak Penn, and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) have all been recruited as four separate, creative teams that will work to transform Transformers from one franchise into a rich, diverse universe of films. Goldsman, who has known Bay since their college days, worked tirelessly to bring all these sci-fi heavy hitters into the fold, and though the ink isn’t yet dry on their deals, »

20 May 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Transformers Spinoff Writers Found; The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman Among Them

20 May 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It was revealed a little earlier this year that Paramount and their Transformers brain trust (made up of Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura) had turned to Akiva Goldsman to come up with ideas for new instalments of the main Transformers franchise along with a number of spinoffs. Part of that including creating a writer's room, and it has some very impressive names! According to Deadline, it will be made up of The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman, Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), and Jeff Pinkner (ugh, The Amazing Spider-Man 2). It's too early to say who will be working on what, but it looks like we're going to be getting an entire cinematic universe of Transformers movies. That's hardly a surprise after the success of the franchise, and it's going to be very interesting to see how this develops! »

Matthew McConaughey Eyed For Spider-Man Villain Role?

20 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This particular rumor should be taken with a massive grain of salt, but that doesn’t change how exciting it is. Just days after Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey noted that he’s circled roles in comic book films before and would be open to starring in Marvel and DC adaptations, we’re hearing that he may currently be in Sony’s crosshairs for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.

The news comes from a YouTube channel called That Hashtag Show. Now, while they aren’t exactly the most credible source and don’t have a history for big scoops like this, they did correctly report several big Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers back in April, so there could be some truth here.

The role in question is that of Peter Parker’s longtime nemesis, Norman Osborn, who of course goes from being your traditional run-of-the-mill corrupt business magnate to glider-flying supervillain, »

Lawrence Kasdan Doesn't Want 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' To Be "One Of These Very Long, Bloated Blockbusters"

19 May 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

These days, blockbuster movies are bigger in almost every sense you can imagine — from the budgets to the special effects that are thrown up on the screen. But it also seems that big ticket movies are getting longer too. "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" runs 141 minutes, "Furious 7" clocked in at 137 minutes, "Interstellar" took 169 minutes to explore the galaxy, while "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" ran 142 minutes, and "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" logged 165 minutes. It seems studios want to ensure audiences get the most bang for their buck in every way possible, but "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan is hoping that his film packs a lot of punch in something resembling a more standard running time. "...this new movie, first of all, it’s turning out really great. J.J. [Abrams] directed it so beautifully, and it’s so exhilarating and everything," he told Vanity Fair. "It’s a big movie. »

Having scored a surprise box office smash in last summer's Lucy, director/screenwriter Luc Besson (Leon: The Professional) has revealed the name of his next sci-fi venture: Valérian And The City Of A Thousand Planets - due for release July 21, 2017.

More movie news coming at you from this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Jamie Foxx is joining Blink, which is directed by Noam Murro (300: Rise Of An Empire), reports Deadline.

Blink tells the story of a hospital caregiver (Foxx) taking care of a patient who was a victim of a bank robbery, but has his ulterior motives.

Foxx's last films were Annie, Horrible Bosses 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all from 2014.

The actor-singer also revealed that he is releasing his fifth album Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses on Monday, May 18. His last album was in 2010 with Best Night of My Life.

Earlier this month, Foxx sang the Us national anthem before the huge fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao; however, his 'Star-Spangled Banner' rendition divided opinions.

"Well, here's the thing with it," he said. "First of all, »

Deadpool Video Provides Close-Up Look at Ryan Reynolds in Costume

13 May 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first official Deadpool set video has been released, although unfortunately it’s through Extra. That means Mario Lopez spends half this piece making this piece about him. Because that’s who audiences really care about: Mario Lopez. Also, his statement “Only we were invited to the top secret Vancouver set of Deadpool,” is untrue. Steve was there last week. Lopez’ vanity aside, this is the first look at Ryan Reynolds up close in the video. Granted, you won’t hear anything about the movie itself, but it’s still nice to get another look at Reynolds wearing the costume and doing it so well. Since filming will likely be completed or at least mostly completed by the summer, I’m wondering if Fox will take some footage to Comic-Con. An even better move would be putting Reynolds on stage in character like Sony did a few years back with »

Box Office Report: Avengers Still Mammoth Over Mother’s Day Weekend

10 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although it’s not drawing the massive crowds that its predecessor did, Avengers: Age of Ultron is still putting up very big numbers. The 3D superhero sequel added another $77.2 million to its gross, a 60% drop from its muscular opening last weekend. Despite a hefty drop, that is the second-best second weekend in history (after The Avengers’ $103.1 million take). Meanwhile, the film’s $312.6 million total after 10 days is the third-best in history, just slightly below the $313.8 million that The Dark Knight made in the same span seven summers ago.

For movies based on Marvel Comics, though, the drop is in the higher end, worse than the last two Iron Mans (-59%) and Thor: The Dark World (-57%), although a bit better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last year (-61%). With a large drop, more lukewarm word-of-mouth and competition from Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road next weekend, this should »

Weekend Box Office: Ultron Holds, Witherspoon Bombs

10 May 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron had no trouble fending off the dismal debut of Warner’s Hot Pursuit to repeat as the number one film at the North America box office. Despite Age of Ultron’s solid second go around, business overall was down five percent from last year at this time when Universal’s Neighbors debuted with $49 million and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 scored $35.5 million in its second round.

Ultron faced the typical 60% drop off for a front-loaded event film, which translates into an estimated $77.2 million sophomore session from 4,276 theaters and a ten-day total of $313 million. The film’s second weekend was more in line with 2013’s Iron Man 3 than it was with 2012’s The Avengers, the latter which dropped 50% to earn $103 million in its second weekend. Age of Ultron crossed the $300 million mark in ten days, the same amount of time it took 2008’s The Dark Knight »

CBS Orders Rush Hour, Limitless, and More to Series

8 May 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today it’s CBS’ turn to announce which pilots it is moving forward with, and unsurprisingly the theme is franchises. The network announced that the Rush Hour and Limitless TV show adaptations will be greenlit, as will a Criminal Minds spinoff, a medical drama, and two comedies. Let’s take a closer look… Rush Hour is, of course, an adaptation of the feature film trilogy of the same name that starred Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. This hourlong dramedy revolves around a by-the-books Hong Kong police officer (Jon Foo) who is assigned a case in Los Angeles where he’s forced to team up with a cocky Lapd officer (Justin Hires). The pilot was penned by Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and Cougar Town alum Blake McCormick, with the two are executive producing alongside Jeff Ingold and the film’s Brett Ratner, Arthur Sark, and Jon Turtletaub, who directed the pilot. »
