Robert Zemeckis has revealed his thoughts on directing a Marvel or DC movie

Robert Zemeckis is one of the biggest names in directing but would he consider helming a Marvel or DC movie in the future?

Director of such classics as Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, and Cast Away, Zemeckis is as accomplished as it gets. One of the biggest markets for directors these days is, of course, the superhero movie but would Zemeckis be interested in crafting a film in this space?

Speaking to BadTaste, the iconic director said he would be happy to be involved in such a movie, as long as he can put his own spin on things: “I would do any project… I don’t have any… you know, the projects that I’m attracted to are the ones that require the director’s vision. You know, the filmmaker’s own and personal artistic stamp. So yeah, if there’s room for that,

Christopher Lloyd is Up For a Back To The Future Part IV But Robert Zemeckis Says It'll Never Happen

The Back To The Future trilogy is perfect as is. I don't think there never needs to be a reboot or even a sequel. But, if the right story presented itself, Christopher Lloyd, who plays Doc Brown in the film, says he'd be totally up for it!

While talking to Phoenix New Times, the actor was asked if he'd be a part of a sequel if it happened and this was his response:

"I’d be delighted. I'd love to be in a fourth film, if they could come up with the right idea that extends the story and does it as well as the first three.It’s important if Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale are excited about doing another episode.

Ahoy! Hawkins, Indiana is getting a mall in the third season of Stranger Things! A fun retro promo video for it was recently shared on Twitter and it shows off all the totally awesome things that you can do at the Starcourt Mall!

Christopher Lloyd Still Thinks Back to the Future 4 Is a Good Idea

Christopher Lloyd Still Thinks Back to the Future 4 Is a Good Idea
There have been rumors about Back to the Future 4 since the third installment hit theaters back in 1990. There was even a report last month that declared the sequel was officially happening with Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox on board, but it was later proven to be false. However, if the right idea for the story came into fruition, Lloyd says that he'd love to do Back to the Future 4. While this does not mean that the sequel is actually happening, it's still awesome that Lloyd has a special place in his heart for the Back to the Future franchise.

In a recent interview, Christopher Lloyd was asked about the possibility of a Back to the Future 4 and the actor revealed that he would be "delighted" to return to the iconic role of Doctor Emmett L. Brown. The first movie debuted 33 years ago and is still what Lloyd is best-known

Lea Thompson on Hollywood Sexual Harassment: ‘It Was Like Kryptonite’ (Video)
Lea Thompson, the veteran actress who has directed her own daughter in her first feature, said on Thursday that getting sexually harassed during auditions “was like Kryptonite” – killing her ability to win roles in her younger years.

“I didn’t realize these things were unacceptable and how they kept me down all these years,” she said, speaking at TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast in San Francisco. “I was in really bad auditions and people would start on me and it would take all my power away to the point where I didn’t get the job. It was like Kryptonite… It was obvious when a director was shopping for a girlfriend.”

If You Didn't Know Zoey Deutch's Mom Is Hollywood Royalty, You Need to Read This

If you've watched Netflix's sweet romantic comedy Set It Up, you might wonder why the frazzled aspiring journalist played by Zoey Deutch reminds you of someone you already know from Hollywood. In fact, she looks a lot like the mother in the Back to the Future trilogy and Tom Cruise's love interest in All the Right Moves. Well, that's because Deutch's mother is none other than, drum roll please, the iconic Lea Thompson!

Thompson has been in so many shows and movies over the years that it's hard to keep track of her highly productive career. Before movies and TV shows, her interest in the arts started with professional ballet training. After Thompson devoted years to the craft, a ballet instructor told her that she was good, but just "too stocky."

Thompson then switched gears to acting. She made her big-screen debut in

‘Cielo’ Film Review: A Poet’s Guide to the Galaxy Via Time-Lapse Views of the Chilean Sky

  • The Wrap
Things are largely chaotic down here on Earth, which gave poet and filmmaker Alison McAlpine good reason to explore the night sky and its resonance with her spectators.

McAlpine’s film “Cielo” premiered in the documentary competition at this year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, a reprieve from a section thick with Vladimir Putin’s accused corruption and how state journalists cover him.

The thing is, “Cielo” is not really a documentary. McAlpine and her cinematographer Benjamin Echazarretta (of the 2018 Best Foreign Language Oscar winner “A Fantastic Woman”) set up camp in Chile’s Atacama Desert and rolled time-lapse shots for some stunningly clear views of the heavens.

Aquaman And Flash Get The Wonder Woman 1984 Treatment With New Fan Posters

Wonder Woman 1984 will pretty much do what it says on the tin and jump several decades on from 2017’s Wonder Woman to follow Diana of Themyscira’s adventures in the 1980s, further revealing what she got up to in the years preceding Batman V Superman and Justice League. Due to the time period, we’re not expecting other DC heroes to pop up for cameos – but what if they did? How would they look redesigned for the 80s?

Fan artist Boss Logic has created two new mock teaser posters for WW84 that imagine a few of Diana’s League teammates as they might look in the 1980s. The Aquaman poster is based on a young Jason Momoa, casting the future king of Atlantis as a teen surfer, while the Flash poster seems to run with the premise that the Scarlet Speedster has travelled back in time from the present.

Tim Robbins used an American movie classic to criticize President Trump as a “child abuser” and a petulant bully in a blazing acceptance speech on Friday.

Accepting a top prize from Central and Eastern Europe’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Robbins said a failed audition earlier in is career for “Back to the Future” helped him frame the current state of discourse in his native country.

“This guy named Robert Zemeckis was directing a movie called ‘Back to the Future’ and I auditioned for the role of Biff. The arrogant, childish bully. The petulant, overgrown child monster. I got close, but I didn’t get the part. I could have been Biff. So why was I thinking about this movie?” Robbins said, accepting the festival’s Crystal Globe award for impact on world cinema.

Tim Robbins Attacks Trump at Karlovy Vary Fest Opener

Tim Robbins Attacks Trump at Karlovy Vary Fest Opener
Launching with a tribute to the founding of Czechoslovakia a century ago, the 53rd edition of the Karlovy Vary film fest kicked off Friday amid gymnastic stunts, fireworks and a call to action by Tim Robbins, who lambasted President Trump for his maltreatment of refugee children. The actor-director joined in the commemoration of Czech freedom, paying tribute to the leading voice of the Velvet Revolution of 1989, Vaclav Havel. The courage of such men is as needful today as it was when the masses turned out in Prague to demand the end of communism, Robbins said.

Recalling his unsuccessful bid in 1985 to land the role of bullying Biff in “Back to the Future,” Robbins confessed that lately, when reading the news, he has been struck by the image of a “petulant, overblown, child monster.”

He explained that the time travel concept in the Michael J. Fox film is relevant today because

‘Lucha Underground’ Review (June 27th 2018)

Here’s your Lucha Underground Season 4, episode 3, review for Wednesday June 27th 2018:

Match #1: Xo Lishus beat Jack Evans

Regularly known as Sonny Kiss, this was Xo Lishus’s debut. With a vibrant personality and a buoyant move-set, Xo took on Jack Evans, one of wrestling’s best aerialists and all-around fighters. Evans was a heel here, which never seems to be the way the people want him, but Lucha Underground isn’t very flexible in the way they book their faces and heels, so its just some-thing he’s stuck with. These two matched up really well, Evans leap from corner to corner like a maniac and Xo bouncing around like a peacock colored pin-ball. I’m glad to see that Lu doesn’t have a problem with putting over new stars on the first night, especially ones who look like Vince McMahon’s worst nightmares come true.
