First Four Batman Movies Heading Back To Theaters This May

Batman was my hero growing up, literally and figuratively. I had toys of the Batplane and Batmobile from Batman ’89 and Batman Returns, and I even had the garish, be-finned Batmobile from Batman Forever. The six Batmen I had, all with different costumes, had one thing in common: I gnawed the ears off of them all, due to anxiety…or just being one of those “weird” kids.

Since I was born in 1992 – ancient history to some – I missed the first two films, was too young to see Batman Forever in theaters, and my mother, in her infinite wisdom, did not waste her time taking me to see Batman & Robin. Thanks to Fathom Events though, I’ll finally have a chance to see, on the silver screen, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney take turns telling people that they are, indeed, Batman.

Composer Marco Beltrami to Be Honored by Ghent Film Festival (Exclusive)
American composer Marco Beltrami will be the guest of honor at the World Soundtrack Awards, part of the Ghent Film Festival, on Oct. 18 in Belgium.

Beltrami, a two-time Oscar nominee (for “3:10 to Yuma” and “The Hurt Locker”), recently scored the horror hit “A Quiet Place” and the Oscar winner for Best Documentary “Free Solo.” Music from both will be performed in a concert by the Brussels Philharmonic.

Festival music director Dirk Brossé, who will conduct, called Beltrami “an all-around composer whose music moves within the most diverse musical styles and genres. Dedicating considerable attention to melody and obsessed by rhythms, Marco offers a rich palette of both acoustic and electronic colors.”

The Ghent Film Festival runs from October 8 to 18 this year. It is widely considered one of the world’s leading events devoted primarily to film music; past concerts have featured such leading composers as Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone,

Disney Dumps Fox 2000 Label as Studio Restructuring Begins

It's the end of the media world as we know it and nobody should feel fine. That may sound dramatic but with the Disney / Fox merger complete and the ramifications now coming to light, it's clear this isn't going to be sunshine and rainbows. Case in point, it's been revealed that Disney is shutting down the Fox 2000 label, a label responsible for making mid-budget movies that are already having a tough time finding a home in the marketplace these days.

According to a new report, Fox 2000, which has been run quite successfully by executive Elizabeth Gabler, is getting the ax as Disney starts their layoffs and restructuring. It's expected that 4,000 employees will be laid off as the now massive media empire tries to do away with redundancies within their corporate structure. Disney now owns 11 different studio labels and at some point, that may qualify as redundant. As such, Fox 2000 will soon be no more.

How Disney Could Shake Up Fox Film Slate, Starting With Brad Pitt’s ‘Ad Astra’

  • The Wrap
Disney’s $71 billion acquisition of Fox may be complete, but the studio’s distribution team now must figure out how to integrate Fox’s existing movie slate into its own.

The Burbank-based studio plans to release all of Fox’s films, an individual with knowledge of the slate tells TheWrap, but some of the 13 Fox films slated for release in the next 12 months will be moved around in the coming weeks to avoid competing against Disney’s own 2019 slate. Disney declined to comment.

The likeliest target for a move: James Gray’s sci-fi film “Ad Astra,” starring Brad Pitt as an astronaut who chases after his father (Tommy Lee Jones) who disappeared on a failed mission to Neptune decades earlier. Fox has booked the film to open May 24 — the same day as Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated hit “Aladdin,” making a date change all but inevitable.

Cannes Intrigue Spikes: Tarantino, Almodóvar, Malick Trending Up; ‘Ad Astra’, ‘Against All Enemies’, Netflix Not Expected
We’re just a few weeks away from the annual unveiling of the Cannes Film Festival lineup, and, as ever, speculation is running high about what will and won’t strut down the Croisette from May 14-25. Also as usual, nothing is set in stone until fest chief Thierry Frémaux makes the announcement. However, we’ve been able to glean some intel into what’s likely to be in store for the official selection — and what is not.

Regarding the big-ticket titles, the one on everyone’s lips is Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. While we’ve heard a possible May 21 date floated — which would slot in nicely given it would mark 25 years to the day that Tarantino debuted Pulp Fiction, going on to win the Palme d’Or — and sources have indicated the film is likely to make it, we also understand that no firm

New Regency & Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society Team For Jordan Vogt-Roberts Creature Feature
Kung: Skull Island filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts will be directing an original monster movie next, one based in his hometown of Detroit Michigan, a pic that will be produced by New Regency and Michael B.

Shooting in Detroit is important for Vogt-Roberts. When the State film incentives abruptly ended in 2015, the filmmaker was quite vocal about still wanting to bring production back to Michigan. Vogt-Roberts accomplished this through collaborations with brands that ranged from Sundance to Quaker Oats to Activision with the 2017 live action trailer he directed for the record-breaking videogame Destiny 2. Vogt-Roberts also co-founded the Detroit non-profit The Detroit Creativity Project, which uses improv training to transform how young people in the city view their potential in school and in life.

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor
As with the award for leading men, the winner of Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars is usually one of the more seasoned competitors. At the 2019 Academy Awards, Mahershala Ali won for “Green Book.” He had previously prevailed in 2017 for “Moonlight.” He was the 29th winner of this award to be in his 40s. Sam Rockwell, who won in 2018 for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was the 30th, having picked up this prize eight months before he turned 50.
