‘The Flash’ Movie Has Been Delayed Again, May Not Come Out Until 2021
The Flash may be the fastest man alive on the comic book pages, but when it comes to the big screen, he’s positively sluggish. The Flash standalone movie has been hit with yet another delay, as Warner Bros. pushes back the expected production start date for Ezra Miller‘s solo superhero film. Now it seems that […]

Oscars: Olivia Colman Will Compete in Best Actress for ‘The Favourite’ as Acting Races Get Clarified

Oscars: Olivia Colman Will Compete in Best Actress for ‘The Favourite’ as Acting Races Get Clarified
When it comes to predicting the Oscars, one of the major hurdles early in the season is figuring out in which categories some of the actors will be competing. Someone like Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained is more of a co-lead performance, but it’s on the studio to decide where to campaign for the actor, and on the Academy to either accept or re-categorize. In the case of Waltz and Django, he was submitted for Best Supporting Actor …

‘Annabelle 3’: Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga Will Play the Warrens in Spinoff Sequel
In the Conjuring universe, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play married paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Wild ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 Trailer Has Magic, Homicidal Unicorns, & an Evil Stein Puppet

The CW has released an extended trailer for Legends of Tomorrow season 4 and words can't quite express just how much of a straight-up, undiluted delight it is. While fellow CW DC series Arrow and The Flash are dangerously close to running out of ideas—they're currently at the "idk, swap costumes?" stage—Legends seems to have so many ideas. Too many ideas. Legends of Tomorrow is bursting with candy-colored, genre-twisting ideas and this mere two-minute trailer cannot contain them. Watch it, rewind to the part where Brandon Routh flees with a corgi in …

Viggo Mortensen Filmed an Iconic ‘Lord of the Rings’ Scene Surrounded by Old Bombs, and Peter Jackson Feared for His Life

Aragorn rallying soldiers from Gondor at the foot of the Black Gate of Mordor is one of the most iconic scenes in “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” but it turns out filming the moment wasn’t a walk in the park for Peter Jackson. Ian Nathan’s upcoming book, “Anything You Can Imagine: Peter Jackson and the Making of Middle-Earth,” includes never-before-known tidbits from the making of Jackson’s epic trilogy, one of which explains how Viggo Mortensen filmed the Black Gate scene surrounded by unexploded bombs (via Entertainment Weekly).

Jackson filmed Aragon’s speech at the Black Gate in a section of the Rangipo Desert once used by the New Zealand military, and the land was covered in unexploded artillery shells as a result. Prior to the film shoot, the New Zealand army designated a safe area away from the bombs where Jackson could

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Original Ending: Evangeline Lilly Was “Grateful” It Didn’t Make the Final Cut
Ant-Man and the Wasp isn’t a movie filled with important universe-altering events. There were plenty of those in Avengers: Infinity War, and director Peyton Reed made the smart decision of not trying to compete with that gargantuan effort; instead, he made a smaller scale film that’s easily one of the funniest films in the Marvel Cinematic […]

‘Venom’ Producers on Carnage, ‘Morbius’, & Why ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse’ Is “Mindblowing”

Warning: Venom spoilers are discussed in this interview. Shortly before Venom arrived in theaters, I sat down with producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach for a spoiler-filled conversation about the making of the film and future projects.

‘First Man’ Composer Justin Hurwitz Is the Real Obsessive Musician at the Heart of Damien Chazelle’s Films

‘First Man’ Composer Justin Hurwitz Is the Real Obsessive Musician at the Heart of Damien Chazelle’s Films
Damien Chazelle has never made a film without his go-to composer (and former college roommate) Justin Hurwitz. Moreover, one could argue that Chazelle has never made a film that wasn’t in some way about Justin Hurwitz.

That idea continues to hold true with his solemn but starry-eyed historical Neil Armstrong biopic, an intimate epic that can hardly be contained by the IMAX screens on which it debuted last week. Another visceral story about a man who’s caught in the grip of his own ambition, “First Man” may not focus on an obsessive musician — which, at this point, is enough to qualify it as a major departure for its director — but Armstrong’s tortuous journey from the depths of grief to the surface of the Moon nevertheless underscores Chazelle’s signature affinity for characters who are consumed by a single idea, often at the expense of their own well-being.

Peter Jackson’s Stunning Documentary ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Brings World War I Into 3D [Lff Review]

It’s been a funny old decade and a half for Peter Jackson. After the critical, commercial, and awards triumphs of the “Lord of The Rings” trilogy — a blockbuster the lasting impact of which is as big as anything since “Star Wars” — he had the world at his feet. But, perhaps inevitably, given how entirely massive his initial Middle-Earth films were, his follow-ups since have struggled to get the same amount of love.

Revisiting ‘What Lies Beneath’, Robert Zemeckis’ Forgotten Alfred Hitchock Riff
What Lies Beneath is a film I really didn’t like when I saw it upon its release in 2000. As a fan of Robert Zemeckis, I was looking forward to him taking on a Hitchcockian thriller with a cast top-lined by Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer. And when I left the theatre that first time, […]

New ‘Daredevil’ Season 3 Featurette Explains the Return and Rise of Wilson Fisk

Daredevil season 3 is a dark, dark story but there are shining bright lights in the return of Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio) and his pristine white suits and immaculately shined head. A new featurette explains the Kingpin of Crime's return from prison and renewed rivalry with blind vigilante ninja Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). I must point out the video also includes D'Onofrio describing Fisk as "not a happy pup," the most delightful phrase you'll hear all day, guaranteed. "The character that Vincent created has become so iconic, so to have him back is absolutely thrilling," says …
