Justice League: The Flash's Dad Is Actually a Very Famous Actor

Image Source: Warner Bros. Ok, maybe Justice League isn't the best superhero movie that's ever been made, but there's still plenty of room to enjoy it. Once you look beyond the sad Amazonian costume redesign (and the other myriad issues), it's still an action-packed, much more lighthearted, overall sort of entertaining addition to the cinematic branch of the DC Extended Universe. All things considered, some of the best fun during Justice League comes from the little Easter eggs that are sprinkled throughout. You know, like the postcredits scene and the little superhero cameo. Oh, and then there's the (very handsome) man who plays the father of the Flash aka Barry Allen aka Mr. Ezra Miller, who is also very handsome. Barry's dad, Henry Allen, only pops up in a couple of Justice League scenes. Henry is in prison for allegedly murdering Barry's mom, Nora Allen. Near the beginning of Justice League,

Donald Sutherland Reflects on Storied Career Ahead of Governors Award

Donald Sutherland Reflects on Storied Career Ahead of Governors Award
Despite a storied career and some 180 screen credits, Donald Sutherland has never been nominated for an Academy Award. The closest he can recall being involved is he got to present one once. So he was shocked when he learned he had been selected as one of this year’s honorary Oscar recipients. But he’s been a favorite for some time, no doubt due in large part to the sense that the Academy is tardy in its recognition.

“I don’t think I’m overdue,” Sutherland says, “but certainly we’re running out of time at 82.”

The moment invites reflection on his career — a career that is still very much in progress, as his recent schedule has the professional traveling from Toronto to Los Angeles to Rome to perform at the top of his game for filmmakers including Danny Boyle and James Gray.

He’s had very few bad tastes left in his mouth over the years

Without Limits: Vietnam review – six disabled people tackle Southeast Asia in this epic travelogue

This 900-mile journey along the Ho Chi Minh trail shows its protagonists are more than a homogenous group. Plus: Love Island meets Gladiator in Bromans

Without Limits: Vietnam (BBC1) is a programme about six people with physical disabilities embarking on a 900 mile journey, which gives the lie to the idea that disabled people are or should be treated in any way as a homogenous group. Vicky lost her leg two years ago in a rollercoaster accident, and the shock of it has been as much a life-changer as having a leg amputated. Charlie, set for life as a rugby pro until he broke his leg so badly he chose to have part of it amputated to free him from continued pain, feels “like a fraud” for leading a relatively unaffected life. Lou faces the complications that come from having an “invisible” disability – a degenerative condition that’s making her increasingly deaf.

Watch The Thrilling Trailer For Marshall Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad And Kate Hudson

Witness the rise of the man who changed America. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) is Thurgood Marshall.

Also starring Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown and James Cromwell, watch the exciting trailer now.

Such an dynamic trailer – with a fall season release date, expect to see awards buzz for such a powerful film. Acting, directing, writing, producing categories, including the technical categories for cinematography, costumes, hair and makeup, and production design, with score and song to round out the possible nominations.

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, Marshall, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

The film has a top notch production team.

Directed by Reginald Hudlin, Marshall is produced by Paula Wagner, Jonathan Sanger ( The Elephant Man, Vanilla Sky, Flight Of The Navigator), and Reginald Hudlin. It is written by Jake Koskoff and Michael Koskoff.

Hudlin co-produced the 88th Academy Awards ceremony in 2016 and was one of the producers of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture for the film.

Paula Wagner launched Cruise/Wagner Productions (C/W) with her former CAA client Tom Cruise. C/W went on to produce such critically acclaimed films as The Others, The Last Samurai, Vanilla Sky, Without Limits, Shattered Glass, Narc, Elizabethtown, and Ask the Dust, as well as Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds (which Wagner executive produced). C/W was responsible for the original Mission: Impossible film trilogy (Mission: Impossible 2 and Mission: Impossible III).

Open Road Films will release Marshall on October 13, 2017. Mark it on your calendar now.

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History
All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one. Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine? Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth? A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe? It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe?

Rory McIlroy Takes Over EA's Golf Franchise

  • Cinelinx
Tiger Woods has Long been the face of EA's PGA Tour title, but today the company has announced some fresh blood is taking over with the reveal trailer for Rory McIlroy's PGA Tour. Come inside to check it out and learn more about the upcoming Golf video game!

While I completely and totally understand the reasoning behind the change up in cover athletes for the video game, I can't help but feel it's the end of an era, of sorts. For well over a decade, it's been Tiger Woods' PGA game, so it's just a little odd to see someone else in the title. Even so, fans of the sport should be happy to see a fresh face taking over. EA announced the game today with this trailer and some new details:

Electronic Arts Inc. (Nasdaq: EA) today announced Rory McIlroy as the cover athlete and namesake of its golf franchise,

Film Review: ‘Ana Maria in Novela Land’

It’s not absolutely necessary to be familiar with the conventions and archetypes of soapy telenovelas to enjoy a few laughs with “Ana Maria in Novela Land,” a lightweight comedy about an obsessed viewer who magically switches places with the leading lady of her favorite TV show. But those who have at least a nodding acquaintance with the highly addictive serial dramas will smile even more often than the uninitiated as director and co-scripter Georgina Garcia Riedel (“How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer”) affectionately satirizes both the limited-run series and their most avid aficionados. This overlong but modestly amusing bilingual indie could attract a few fans of its own in limited theatrical release and ancillary platforms.

Edy Ganem, of Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” is by turns perky, sultry and screechy in the dual role of Ariana, the sexy/sullen heroine of a popular telenovela titled “Pasion sin limites” (“Passion Without Limits”), and Ana Maria,

‘Ana Maria in Novela Land’ Review: Smart, Hilarious Trading-Places Comedy is a Future Slumber-Party Classic
The mainstream embrace of ABC’s “Ugly Betty” and The CW’s “Jane the Virgin” will hopefully mean that the charming and hilarious telenovela satire “Ana Maria in Novela Land” can find a larger audience beyond the Latino movie ghetto. Starring Edy Ganem (“Devious Maids”) in what should be a star-making turn as both schlubby millennial Ana Maria and hyper-glamorous “gold-digging orphan/whore” Ariana (the protagonist of the fictional “Pasión Sin Limites,” or “Passion Without Limits”), this switching-places comedy warmly and trenchantly sends up the telenovela genre’s swooning melodrama and oversexed-but-prudish contradictions. “Novela Land” begins with a flawless spoof,

Trailer For William H. Macy’s Directorial Debut Rudderless Is Now Online

William H. Macy arrived at last January’s Sundance Film Festival with his directorial debut, a music dramedy called Rudderless. Reviews were good, the cast is solid and the story is heartwarming and inspiring – so it is strange that we have heard so little about this upcoming feature. Now, however, Rudderless has a feel-good trailer online that promises a solid run on demand and in theaters when the film releases this October.

Rudderless tells the story of Sam (Billy Crudup), a high-profile ad exec who loses his son in a school shooting, only to turn to grieving through the drink. After he finds a collection of his deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics, he decides to share the music with others. These tunes draw the eye of a younger rock group, led by Quentin (Anton Yelchin), who decides to enlist Sam in a rock band where the father can

Golf Without Limits In EA Sports PGA Tour 15

After taking the past year off and removing Tiger Woods from his former headline position, EA is returning to the links next year with EA Sports PGA Tour 15.

Revealed during the company’s E3 2014 press conference, PGA Tour 15 has been built using the powerful Frostbite 3 engine, which promises that the title will not only look stunning, but will also feature “no load times between holes.”

While the world of golf may not appeal to everyone, EA is hoping that the new “extreme fantasy courses” will pull in a wider audience. An example of this was shown in a video clip that started off as your typical golf experience, with a professional looking golfer driving a ball from a lush green landscape. As the ball flew through the air, however, we saw it fly over an exploding battleship that is reminiscent of something you would see in Battlefield 4. The tagline “Golf

'Suburgatory's' Jeremy Sisto loves his kids and 'The Deer Hunter'

On ABC's Wednesday sitcom "Suburgatory," which launched a new season in January, Jeremy Sisto plays George Altman, an architect and single father of a teen daughter (Jane Levy) who moves to the suburbs to give her a better life. He discovers life there is different, but whether it's better is a work in progress.

In real life, Sisto is a 39-year-old father of two: daughter Charlie and baby son Bastian. He got married to wife Addie a few months after his daughter was born, but Sisto has no regrets about taking the plunge.

"I love my family," he tells Zap2it. "I have a great wife. It took me a while to figure that out and commit, but now I'm really happy I did. She's a human being, and we're committed to each other. It's a nice thing. The kids are just amazing. It's a different level."

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu No Longer Directing The Jungle Book

We.ve got ourselves another competing project-logjam! The good old days of Volcano/Dante.s Peak, Babe and Gordy and Prefontaine and Without Limits is still with us, as proved by last year.s Olympus Has Fallen/White House Down confrontation. Studios have tried to avoid this in recent years, axing a Howard Hughes film by Chris Nolan and an Alexander The Great film by Baz Luhrman, but sometimes you just end up with two competing Truman Capote movies. It happens, and it.s about to happen again: Rudyard Kipling.s The Jungle Book is in the public domain, which means we could have two versions of the film coming up.

Documentarist 2013 means more in light of Gezi Resistance

The 6th Istanbul Documentary Days was blessed with an outstanding location for a documentary film festival: a park which has become a cause and a symbol of an urban uprising movement that has spread to the whole of the country. What makes it even more fantastic is that it was not meant to be so. It all happened naturally, so to speak.

In 2012, an announcement was made that there was a plan to turn Gezi Park, a small historical park in central Istanbul, into a shopping mall area. Activists for environmental as well urban rights launched a campaign to preserve the park. As work which would destroy the park began in the second half of May this year, a small group of activists set up tents in the park to stage a peaceful protest.

As the police reacted violently to push the protesters out of the park, tens of thousands

Ten of the best running movies

From Marathon Man to Forrest Gump, we complete a circuit of the best running-themed films. What's your favourite? Let us know below

Since the moment Eadweard Muybridge captured a man sprinting in 1887 runners have worn a path across the cinematic landscape. Whether on the pristine oval of an Olympic running track, a dusty patch in a prison rec yard or the damp tarmac of a rural country road, film has documented the sweat and solitude of running in all its pain and glory.

Here are 10 of the best.

The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner

Opening with the sound of Tom Courtenay's feet thudding against a bleak rural lane, Tony Richardson and Alan Sillitoe's 1962 British New Wave classic is one of the most poetic running films in cinematic history. As Colin Smith, a petty delinquent, Courtenay gives a

'Chariots of Fire,' 'The Cutting Edge' and other Olympic movies that have gone for the gold

"Charlie Chan at the Olympics" (1937): Yes, really. Footage from the previous year's Berlin Olympics figures into this caper that takes the sleuth (Warner Oland) to those Games.

"Jim Thorpe - All American" (1951): Burt Lancaster surely had the physique for the title role in this portrait of the Native American who medaled in both the pentathlon and decathlon.

"Walk, Don't Run" (1966): Cary Grant made his final screen appearance in this comedy set against the backdrop of the Tokyo Olympics, where scarce quarters make roommates of strangers (Grant, Samantha Eggar, Jim Hutton).

"Chariots of Fire" (1981): Generally acknowledged as the top Olympics movie to date, confirmed by its Oscar for best picture, director Hugh Hudson's drama casts Ben Cross and Ian Charleson as British competitors in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris.

"Personal Best" (1982): An athlete (Mariel Hemingway) becomes deeply involved with a rival (Patrice Donnelly) for a spot on the U.
