Images from the pilot episode of Gotham

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With three weeks to go until the series premiere, Fox has debuted a batch of images from the pilot episode of Gotham, which we have for you below courtesy of Spoiler TV…

 

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Gotham is set to premiere on Fox on Monday, September 22nd, with Ben McKenzie (The O.C.) starring as Detective Jim Gordon alongside Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) as Alfred Pennyworth, »

Is Joaquin Phoenix Reluctant To Sign On For Doctor Strange?

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joaquin Phoenix has been circling the title role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange for a while now, and he was supposedly nearing a deal just before San Diego Comic-Con in July. Late last week, we heard that after some long talks with the studio, the three-time Academy Award nominee was in final negotiations for the role… but a new report suggests that he may be getting cold feet.

Not only is Phoenix reluctant to sign one of those famous multi-film Marvel contracts, but he’s supposedly uncomfortable with the way big-budget blockbusters like this are made and may in fact back out of his talks altogether.

The report comes from Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, whose sources tell him that Collider’s report about the final negotiations last week may have been premature. Marvel wanted to get Phoenix to sign on for the role in time to announce it at Comic-Con, »

There have been numerous reports that Marvel is in active talks with Joaquin Phoenix to play the lead role in the studio's upcoming "Doctor Strange" film. Now comes word that the actor may pass on the offer. According to BadassDigest, Phoenix is interested, but isn't convinced that he can take the role.

Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is directing "Doctor Strange," which is set to hit theaters on July 8th, 2016. »

Jump Scares: Option Or Obsession?

30 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’ve been writing publicly about horror films for a little over five years, and I’ve been watching a healthy dose of horror films for over two decades.  One would think that after watching so many films, I’d be desensitized to all of the traditional tricks and tropes that trigger a response from the average audience member.  I may be able to sit through graphic imagery and my stomach is now strong enough to handle the goriest and most exploitative films ever made, but I’m still that sucker who jolts and screams in the middle of a theatre when a stupid cat runs across the screen and shrieks in the middle of a silent scene.  Jump scares are a combination of building tension, sound design, and visual trickery.  It’s the moment when a killer moves after you think they’re dead, it’s a sudden rush »

First look at Carol Kane as The Penguin’s mother in Gotham

29 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than a month to go before its premiere, we should expect to hear plenty about Fox’s upcoming DC show Gotham over the next few weeks, and thanks to Cbm we now have our first look at Carol Kane (Annie Hall) as Gertrud Kapelput, the mother of Oswald Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin. Take a look…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Joaquin Phoenix In Final Talks To Play ‘Doctor Strange’

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rapidly expanding entity that evolves and deepens with each successive entry the mega-franchise receives. After two fantastic Marvel Studios productions earlier this year, fans and general moviegoers can rest assured that the on-going series will continue to thrive and flourish for many years to come. Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy successfully demonstrated (once again) that the studio can consistently produce original material, that stands out against the fierce competition.

With that in mind, audiences are frequently looking ahead to what Marvel have in store for us next year and beyond with their future ‘phase 3′ releases that are currently lined up. Doctor Strange is an adaptation that has been name-dropped several times in the past by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. However, it is only recently that the film has finally started showing signs of life after spending years as »

Is Joaquin Phoenix the prescription for Marvel's 'Doctor Strange'?

28 August 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Marvel Studios is trying to bring Joaquin Phoenix in-network as Doctor Strange, the surgeon turned wizard warrior, whose existence was teased in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The three-time Oscar nominee for Gladiator, Walk the Line, and The Master has been mentioned before as one of the contenders for the role of Dr. Stephen Strange, but Collider reported today that Phoenix is in final talks and sources close to the film confirm to EW he is their top choice for the role.

Joaquin Phoenix is in final negotiations for Doctor Strange

28 August 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was reported that three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix was at the top of Marvel’s wishlist for Doctor Strange, and that he was in negotiations with the studio. Now Collider is reporting that those talks are about to be concluded, and that Phoenix is in final negotiations for the title role.

This news comes hot off the heels of a recent rumor claiming that Boardwalk Empire alum Jack Huston was being eyed for the role, but according to Collider’s sources, that simply isn’t true:

“Despite rumors to the contrary, we’re hearing that Phoenix is absolutely still in line to play Doctor Strange in the Marvel adaptation, with our source telling us that his contract is essentially at the 1 yard line, about to pass into the endzone. Though some believed the length of time it’s taken for Phoenix to finalized his deal was »

Joaquin Phoenix Is Now In Final Negotiations For Doctor Strange

28 August 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It looks like the search for Marvel’s Doctor Strange may be coming to a close, as Collider reports that Joaquin Phoenix – who was first rumored to be in contention for the role last month – is in final negotiations to play the Sorcerer Supreme.

Just a few days ago, we reported that Jack Huston (American Hustle, Boardwalk Empire) was under consideration for the role, but Collider’s sources tell them that’s not the case:

“Despite rumors to the contrary, we’re hearing that Phoenix is absolutely still in line to play Doctor Strange in the Marvel adaptation, with our source telling us that his contract is essentially at the 1 yard line, about to pass into the endzone.”

The site also notes that it’s taken a while for Phoenix’s negotiations with the studio to finalize, mainly because the actor doesn’t want his Marvel contract to restrict his »

‘Doctor Strange’ Rumor: Jack Huston in Running to Star

25 August 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Doctor Strange doesn’t have an official release date yet, but with director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) onboard and screenwriter Jon Spaihts (The Mummy (2016)) actively revising the script, odds are this is the film that Marvel Studios is eying for a July 2016 arrival.

That means that a casting announce concerning who’s going to play Stephen Vincent Strange ought to be coming sooner than later, well ahead of when production should be getting underway in the first half of 2015. Jack Huston is the latest actor whose name has been thrown into the rumored Doctor Strange actor ring, thanks to This Is Infamous.

31-year old Huston – a Boardwalk Empire veteran, costar of such recent films as Kill ...

Jack Huston In The Running To Play Doctor Strange

25 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

File this one under ‘rumors’ until we hear something more concrete, but This Is Infamous is reporting that Jack Huston, the up-and-comer known for his role on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, is in the running to play the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s upcoming Phase Three title Doctor Strange.

The site doesn’t name its sources but claims that Huston, who will next be seen slaying the Victorian undead in the genre mashup Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is “under consideration” for the role, and that “Marvel is very close to settling on a guy.”

Other actors who have been rumored to be in the mix for the part include Joaquin Phoenix (looking less likely every day, especially when one considers his noted distaste for big Hollywood productions), Jon Hamm (who has flat-out denied that he’s in the running) and Benedict Cumberbatch (who has also denied reports).

Deliver Us From Evil Review

23 August 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Proclaiming your newest horror movie is based on true life events isn't anything new for movie studios, to my mind it reaches back to 1979's The Amityville Horror, but with the recent run of 'based on real life events' horror movies, including The Conjuring and The Quiet Ones, I for one am getting sick of getting hit over the head with this trend. The latest movie to proudly proclaim the spooky goings on you see are rooted in the real life is Deliver Us From Evil, based on New York police officer Ralph Sarchie's (played here by Eric Bana) account of a case where he came face to face with demonic possession. Coming from director Scott Derrickson, who brought us the similary 'based on a true story' The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister (one of the finest horror movies in recent memory in my opinion), Deliver Us From Evil »

Watch a 20-minute behind-the-scenes preview of Gotham

22 August 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With exactly a month to go before the premiere of Gotham, Fox has released a special 20-minute three-part behind-the-scenes preview of the Batman prequel series entitled ‘The Legend Reborn’, which you can check out below after the official synopsis…

Gotham is the origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), this one-hour drama follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the genesis of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Brave, earnest and eager to prove himself, the newly minted detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. »

Scott Derrickson interview: Deliver Us From Evil, Deus Ex, reactions

21 August 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The director of Deliver Us From Evil, Scott Derrickson, chats to us about the film, Deus Ex, and horror for kids...

After drumming up decent business in the Us at the start of July, Sinister director Scott Derrickson's latest film, Deliver Us From Evil, is finally in UK cinemas.

Currently on the set of Sinister 2, before he heads off to direct Marvel's Doctor Strange (and you won't be surprised to hear that's a movie that we couldn't explore in this interview), he spared us time for a chat about what he's done, and what he's up to. Without further ado...

Welcome to the world of international staggered release dates! We get Deliver Us From Evil this week in the UK, whereas it had a July 4th weekend release in the Us. It seems to me that it's a more natural fit over here than there.

Exclusive First Look at Amityville: The Awakening

21 August 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Dread Central readers are everywhere, and they're sometimes wonderfully sneaky too! Playing ahead of this weekend's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is the teaser trailer for the newly titled Amityville: The Awakening, and we've got screen grabs from it!

A DC reader known only as Egon Spengler has busted these first images of the haunting new film. Amityville: The Awakening is the Blumhouse-produced next installment in the franchise that continues to endure all these decades later.

Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as lead character Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house, which of course has a very dark history. Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Taylor Spreitler, and McKenna Grace are also on board.

Maniac remake director Franck Khalfoun will direct.

Dimension had planned on reigniting the popular horror franchise using a found-footage angle, but that idea has been dropped. Amityville remains scheduled »

Universal Veers From Superhero Trend for a Monster Plan

21 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While most studios in Hollywood are betting on superheroes to save the box office, Universal Pictures is doubling down on creature features.

This month, the studio acquired rights to Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles” book series. In July, it announced plans to create a Marvel-like cinematic universe around Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man and the Creature From the Black Lagoon. At the same time, the studio inked an eyebrow-raising 10-year, first-look deal with microbudget horror producer Jason Blum, whose Blumhouse Films is behind the profitable “Paranormal Activity,” “Sinister,” “Insidious” and “The Purge” franchises. Last summer, the studio lured Legendary Entertainment into the fold, and now the production firm is co-financing U’s “Jurassic World” and “Dracula Untold,” and has its own upcoming thrillers, including “As Above, So Below” and King Kong tentpole “Skull Island,” which Universal will release.
