Leslie Grace Is Batgirl, the Movie Finds Its Barbara Gordon
HBO Max has found its Batgirl. Previously, it had been reported that a live-action Batgirl movie was in the works at HBO Max, though not much else has been revealed about the project since. This week, a major casting update brought about the news that the project had narrowed down the shortlist of actresses in consideration for the titular role. Per Deadline, the list included Isabella Merced, Zoey Deutch, Haley Lu Richardson, and Leslie Grace.

After these recent screen tests, Warner Bros. and DC Films have reportedly decided to go with Leslie Grace to play the live-action Barbara Gordon in Batgirl. The studio is said to have been high up on the rising star already after she impressed audiences and critics with her breakout role in In the Heights. Her subsequent audition reportedly sealed the deal according to Deadline, though the studio hasn't yet provided an official comment.

Johnny Mnemonic Blu-ray Review

Johnny Mnemonic Blu-ray Review
A brief history lesson, if you’ll indulge me.

Far from arriving fully-formed in 1984’s ‘Neuromancer’, the sci-fi subgenre now dubbed ‘Cyberpunk’ was not was a melting pot of ideas first developed by writers such as Philip K. Dick, Jg Ballard and Harlan Ellison. Projecting their paranoia of capitalist enterprises gaining more and more control over our lives and sedating any resistance through ubiquitous cheap sex and chemically distraction. The aesthetic elements-dense cityscapes covered in neon, integrated Western & Eastern cultures-were drawn from Japanese Cyberpunk, influenced by the country’s urban architecture and culture. All of which proved appealing to a young jobbing writer named William Gibson.

Gibson had been immersed in the counterculture scene since his late teens. He took mind-altering substances, sold drug paraphernalia and became close friends with punk musician John Shirley. Shirley encouraged his then-nascent writing and the result was 1986’s ‘Burning Chrome’ demonstrating the purest distillation

A Crazy Story about Paul Verhoeven on the Set of Starship Troopers

A Crazy Story about Paul Verhoeven on the Set of Starship Troopers
So let’s just say that technically a director shouldn’t be trying to surprise their actors on purpose all the time, since there needs to be a good line of communication between them in order to keep a good working relationship since this goes into making an effective movie that people will want to watch. But when Paul Verhoeven was questioned by one of his actors, Dina Meyer, on the set of Starship Troopers, he performed a gesture that effectively silenced the actress and made it clear that he wasn’t asking them to do anything he wasn’t willing to do, within

Sci-Fi Spoof Featuring 42 Star Trek Actors To Premiere This August

Sci-Fi Spoof Featuring 42 Star Trek Actors To Premiere This August

For those of you who don’t know (you won’t), there’s a new sci-fi spoof on the way called Unbelievable!!!!! It stars Snoop Dogg, 42 former Star Trek actors, Michael Madsen, and a ficus on a skateboard. That ought to answer all of your questions.

In the can for what appears to have been an eternity (some of the footage dates back as far as 2013), the film does at last have a release date. I say at last, but I’m not sure it was at the top of anyone’s list of movie treasure troves. Anyway, if you’re feeling particularly trashy (there’s no shame in that), sit down for Unbelievable!!!!! in an online premiere this August 1st. The premiere will also come with a virtual convention.

‘In The Line of Duty’ VOD Review

Stars: Aaron Eckhart, Ben McKenzie, Courtney Eaton, Dina Meyer, Giancarlo Esposito, Jessica Lu, James Hutchison III | Written by Jeremy Drysdale | Directed by Steven C Miller

In 2015 Steven C. Miller, director of horror hits such as The Aggression Scale, Under the Bed and Submerged, made a move into the action genre with the Bruce Willis-featuring Extraction (the first of three film he made with Willis). He has since stuck with the genre directing films like Mararuders, Southern Fury (aka Arsenal), and Escape Plan 2 – ever so slowly working his way up the echelon of named stars. Be they in cameo roles a la Bruce Willis and Sly Stallone…

However now comes In The Line of Duty (renamed from just Line of Duty here in the UK to avoid confusion with the TV detective drama of the same name), which sees former Two-Face Aaron Eckhart in the lead role as a put-upon,

Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3 DC Easter Eggs Explained

Mike Cecchini Jim Dandy Dec 10, 2019

Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3 finally reveals the fate of the Flash, the status of the DC Multiverse, and much more!

This article contains nothing but Crisis on Infinite Earths Part 3 spoilers.

Well, you certainly can’t say that Crisis on Infinite Earths is anything less than ambitious. The Flash episode of the massive Arrowverse crossover, long known as the one on which so much of this show would turn, is “Crisis on Infinite Earths Part Three” brought of the death of a Flash, the return of some fan favorites, the introduction of a character who will likely prove to be pivotal down the line, and a stunning betrayal. In other words, it’s Crisis through and through, and the stakes in the Arrowverse have never been higher.

Film Review: ‘Line of Duty’

Film Review: ‘Line of Duty’
High on energy if low on credibility, “Line of Duty” stars Aaron Eckhart as a cop from Birmingham, Ala., whose day gets a lot more hectic when he’s caught up in a kidnapping whose victim is under immediate mortal threat. This latest from prolific genre helmer Stephen C. Miller is a little off-putting at times with its undercurrent of pro-police, anti-everyone-else rhetoric — though that may play well with some of the target demographic. In any case, action fans looking for a lot of forward motion could do worse than this lively, increasingly over-the-top feature-length chase. It opens Nov. 15 on U.S. screens, day-and-date with on demand.

Officer Frank Penny (Eckhart) is a street cop with a world-weary, borderline-demoralized demeanor (we don’t find out exactly why until much later), starting his day bantering with a favorite neighborhood kid (Elijah Cooper). Some blocks away, his superiors are orchestrating a trap

Birds of Prey’s Ashley Scott will reprise Huntress role for Crisis on Infinite Earths

The Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover has just added another face from DC television’s past. TVLine reports Ashley Scott, who portrayed Huntress in the short-lived Birds of Prey series, will reprise her role for the massive CW crossover.

Birds of Prey debuted in 2002 and took place in New Gotham City, set several years after Batman seemingly abandoned his war on crime and Gotham following a fateful encounter with The Joker. Helena Kyle, aka Huntress, is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman and has metahuman abilities giving her increased strength, speed and healing. She works with Oracle, the former Batgirl Barbara Gordon who is confined to a wheelchair after getting shot by Joker, and Dinah Redmond, a telepath who is the daughter of Black Canary. Starring alongside Scott was Dina Meyer as Oracle and Rachel Skarsten as Dinah. The series ran for 13 episodes, but was cancelled due to declining ratings.

Ashley Scott to Reprise Birds of Prey Role on Crisis On Infinite Earths

Crisis On Infinite Earths is going to be a nostalgic affair.

Another new name has been added to the cast of the 2019 Arrowverse crossover, and this one is quite the surprise.

TV Line is reporting that Ashley Scott will reprise her Huntress role from the one-and-done Birds of Prey during the five-part event.

Scott played the Helena Kyle on that series, and viewers will find out what became of the character following the conclusion of the series in 2003.

Birds of Prey was saddled with low ratings from the get-go, meaning that it did not survive beyond the initial 13 episodes ordered.

The series also starred Dina Meyer as Batgirl and Rachel Skarsten as Black Canary.

This will not be the first time the Huntress has appeared in the Arrowverse. That honor goes to Jessica De Gouw, who recurred on Arrow's first two seasons.

Crisis on Infinite Earths Adds New Atom, Birds of Prey Huntress

Jim Dandy Sep 27, 2019

A new Atom and a new show are on tap for the Crisis multiverse

The onset of autumn means several things: leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, and a new show from the DC TV back catalogue being welded to the Arrowverse in Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The latest show to be hammered in is Birds of Prey, the 2002 one season wonder from the old WB. Ashley Scott returns as Helena Kyle, the Huntress of that show, for Crisis. Birds of Prey starred Scott as Huntress, Dina Meyer as Batgirl, and Batwoman’s Rachel Skarsten as Black Canary.

They’ll be joined by Osric Chau. Chau will not be linking his old show, Supernatural, to the crossover, though. Instead, he’s going to be playing Ryan Choi, a character who has not yet appeared in any live action DC TV show on any network. Choi is a mild-mannered professor at Ivy Town University.
