Will Joey King (‘The Act’) follow in big sis Hunter King’s Emmy footsteps? Hunter won twice for ‘Young and the Restless’
At just 19 years old, Joey King earned an Emmy nomination for Best Movie/Mini Actress for her role in the Hulu anthology series “The Act.” But she’s actually not the first member of her family to make the cut at the Emmys. Her older sister Hunter King has two trophies on her mantel for her work in daytime TV as Summer Newman on “The Young and the Restless.”

The King sibs are young adults now, but they have been acting since they were children. Hunter got her start in the 2000s with guest-starring roles in shows like “Roswell,” “Dexter” and “ER,” in addition to a big-screen appearance in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.” She got a big break in 2012 (when she was still a teenager) by joining the cast of “Y&r” as Summer Newman, the daughter of Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow).

How The Lion King’s Classic Score Was Updated

Don Kaye Jul 17, 2019

Composer Hans Zimmer on how and why he revisited his Oscar-winning score for The Lion King.

Hans Zimmer is one of the best-known and most acclaimed film composers of the past 35 years. The German-born Zimmer began working on films in 1984, landed his first Oscar nomination four years later for Rain Man, and won his first Oscar for Best Original Score in 1994 for the Disney animated classic The Lion King, which combined Zimmer’s work with traditional African music composed by the South African artist Lebo M.

The music from The Lion King has become as iconic as the film itself, and Zimmer has returned to perform the same duties on director Jon Favreau’s new photorealistic computer-animated remake, which recreates nearly all of the 1994 film’s story and emotional beats while trading its traditional animated style for the look and sweep of a nature documentary.

Nicki Minaj Says She’s Down To Play Catwoman In The Batman

With Robert Pattinson set to star as the titular vigilante, Warner Bros. will soon be seeking some talent to face off against him in The Batman. Arguably the character that’s getting the most interest online right now is Catwoman, who’s said to be one of the six or seven villains that’ll be making Bruce’s life a misery in Matt Reeves’ upcoming pic.

To date, a number of high profile actresses have been linked to the role of Selina Kyle, either through fan casts, rumors or their own social media pushes, but so far, WB has yet to announce anything. Still, that hasn’t stopped Nicki Minaj from becoming the latest person to express interest.

Yes, the rap superstar was recently interacting with a fan on Twitter when they said they’d love to see her as Catwoman, and in a response that could just be a joke,

The Dark Knight: Top 10 Darkest Moments From Nolan’s Trilogy

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy began almost 15 years ago. After some laughable Batman entries like Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, Warner Bros. was looking to reboot the series. Nolan crafted a film with a much darker tone than previous Batman movies, which most people were more than okay with.

His trilogy began in 2005 with Batman Begins starring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. The actor and director both returned for two more sequels; The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. The trilogy is highly regarded among superhero buffs, with The Dark Knight even holding the number four spot on IMDb’s top 250 movies of all-time. Here is The Dark Knight: Top 10 Darkest Moments From Nolan’s Trilogy.

Gotham: The Fifth And Final Season Blu-ray Review

In the eyes of this lifelong Batman fan, Gotham will forever remain a wonderful part of the character’s enduring mythos. I’m aware of how a percentage of you scoff at how it retold the Dark Knight’s beginnings – and those of his villains, for that matter – but it’s important that creators keep things fresh. After all, our hero couldn’t have gotten this far if everybody rehashed the same tales over and over again.

Over the five years that Gotham had been on the air, I couldn’t help making comparisons to Smallville in various news articles and reviews. And at a time like this, it’s hard not making another one. I say that because while both shows had a similar goal in fleshing out the backstory of a beloved icon, Smallville covered much more ground during its ten-season lifespan. On the plus side, like Smallville,

Bond 25 Star Rumored For Catwoman Role In The Batman

Now that The Batman has entered pre-production, it shouldn’t be much longer before we learn which other actors will orbit Robert Pattinson as the titular hero. So far, we’ve heard rumblings of Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face, Mad Hatter and Firefly joining the party, but it’s actually Catwoman whom we’re here to discuss today.

If you’ve been keeping score, then you’ve heard a few names being in the mix for Selina Kyle, specifically Chloe Grace Moretz, Jodie Comer and Vanessa Kirby. And though I’ve personally taken to the idea of seeing Daisy Ridley in the role after seeing some impressive fan art, we’ve never heard anything about her actually being in contention.

Now, we can add one more woman to the list, that being Ana de Armas. Surprisingly, her possible involvement hasn’t gained too much attention as of yet, though it’s worth

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Kicks Off With Limited Midnight Shows – Early B.O. Read
In a complete throwback to the way films use to open back in the early aughts, Sony began previews at midnight for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home in under 1,000 theaters. The studio is not reporting these numbers this morning, but we hear Far From Home made $2.8M-$3M from a handful of theaters, and note the sequel didn’t play in Canada. Before you jump to conclusions on that gross, read on, but let’s just say sources this morning are very impressed with the pic’s limited midnight release. As far as we know, Far From Home didn’t play at 2am, 3am, or 4am. This morning Far From Home is in full play at 4,634 — the widest July release ever. Already, after a weekend release in China, Hong Kong and Japan, Far From Home counts $110.8M.

Note, no studio has launched a pic at midnight, arguably since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises,

'The Batman' Eyes 'Hobbs & Shaw' Star Vanessa Kirby as Catwoman?

'The Batman' Eyes 'Hobbs & Shaw' Star Vanessa Kirby as Catwoman?
We have a new actress who may be in the running to join the DC universe as our next Catwoman. Pre-production is currently underway on The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson in the title role, with Matt Reeves set to write and direct. Now, we have word that Vanessa Kirby is possibly being eyed by Reeves for the coveted role of Selina Kyle in the movie.

According to a new report, Vanessa Kirby is one of the actresses on the shortlist for Catwoman in The Batman. At the present time, no other actresses were specifically named, but Kirby is just one of a handful who will likely be in contention. The studio hasn't officially confirmed that Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle, will be part of the equation. However, the character has been rumored for some time now. As for Kirby, she broke out on Netflix's series The Crown. She starred

The Batman Has Officially Entered Pre-Production

Matt ReevesThe Batman has finally entered pre-production. Well, if this little tidbit of information turns out to be true anyway. The IMDb Pro updates for the film today announced that it’s moved from the scripting stage to pre-production. So, what does this mean?

Well, with The Dark Knight Rises being the last solo Batman outing and a lot of attention given to the casting of Robert Pattinson, it appears that Warner Bros. are eager to finally get this one out of the gate. We’re hearing that the studio is targeting a June 25th, 2021 release date, with the shoot commencing in late 2019/early 2020.

My guess is that tucked away on the Warner Bros. lot are teams of artists conceptualizing what Pattinson’s take on the hero should look like. There’s a lot of design work that goes into a Batman movie, with the Dark Knight trilogy raising

Here’s How Daisy Ridley Could Look As Catwoman In The Batman

Now that Robert Pattinson has officially landed the titular role in The Batman, our attention turns toward who’ll possibly round out the rest of the cast. The latest reports tell us that Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, Firefly, Mad Hatter and Two-Face will accompany the Dark Knight, and we can only imagine how highly sought after those respective gigs will be.

Actually, it’s Catwoman who’s the focus of today’s conversation. Last we heard, Chloe Grace Moretz and Jodie Comer are in contention for the part, though Aubrey Plaza sounds game if the studio were to give her a call. And while I’m sure any one of those talented actresses have their own supporters, it’s someone else who’s gaining our attention for the moment.

Now, while I’m not necessarily good at fan-casting myself, Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame is who I’m backing until

Christopher Nolan’s Tenet reportedly has $225 million budget

He’s certainly no stranger to huge budgets, but it seems that Christopher Nolan will be working with the second-biggest of his career with his next film Tenet.

According to reports, the action thriller has a production budget of $225 million, second only to the $250 million-budgeted The Dark Knight Rises in terms of Nolan’s most expensive movies.

Nolan’s most recent project, the World War II epic Dunkirk, came in at $100 million, which was relatively cheap compared to the likes of The Dark Knight ($185 million), Interstellar ($165 million) and Inception ($160 million).

As expected with a Nolan project, plot details for Tenet are being kept tightly under wraps, but we do know that the film revolves around the world of international espionage, and features a cast that includes John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman), Robert Pattinson (High Life), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nocturnal Animals

Aquaman spin-off to take the ‘monster horror’ route

Warner Bros. is certainly not letting the success of James Wan’s ‘Aquaman’ slide, not only is it getting a sequel but Wan has confirmed a couple of details regarding a spin-off.

The spin-off has already started on development and is said to focus on The Trench creatures. There are rumours that Jason Momoa and Amber Heard will be making an appearance but whether any of the other characters from ‘Aquaman’ will be appearing isn’t clear.

The Kingdom of the Trench is one of the seven kingdoms that splintered off when ancient Atlantis sank, and its inhabitants devolved into savage deep-sea beings. Within said kingdom is a one-way portal to the Hidden Sea at the Earth’s core.

During an interview with Comicbook.com Wan also confirmed that the spin-off wouldn’t be a superhero movie and focusing more on the monster/horror element.

Every Batman Movie Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)

Every Batman Movie Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)
We’ve arrived at the 30th anniversary of the release of Tim Burton’s “Batman,” the film that you could argue ushered in the modern age of big screen superheroes. But whether or not you agree with that idea, you can rest assured that you will almost certainly disagree with our rankings of all the Batman movies. Because that’s just how these things go.

15. “Batman and Robin” (1949) is just an abysmal experience, with a bad lead actor wearing a floppy-eared Batsuit. Though The Wizard, a villain original to this serial, is admittedly cool looking, it’s not enough to stem the boredom in this four-hour slog.

14. “Batman” (1943) gets points for novelty thanks to its hilariously over-the-top old fashioned World War II racism. But Batman’s first onscreen appearance lacks pretty much everything that would mark it as an engaging filmgoing experience today. It’s cool that a grandfather clock

Halle Berry's Catwoman Is More Popular Than Pfeiffer & Hathaway in New Poll

Halle Berry's Catwoman Is More Popular Than Pfeiffer & Hathaway in New Poll
I don't know about you, but my favorite portrayal of Catwoman is hands down Michelle Pfeiffer from director Tim Burton's 1992 sequel Batman Returns costarring Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne / Batman and Danny DeVito as Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin. But it looks like us Pfeiffer fans are in the (slight) minority as a recent poll shows that America's favorite Catwoman actress is - what the hell? - Halle Berry?

Yep, it looks like the recent poll which let us know that people 18-29 preferred Robert Pattinson's casting as new Bruce Wayne / Batman over X-Men: Days of Future Past and Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nicholas Hoult, is also cluing us in on the fact that a majority of America's are wrong. I'm kidding. It's all a matter of opinion. And it's a view that filmmaker and critic Patrick H. Willems seems to think "comes down less to the actual

Christopher Nolan's Next Film Tenet Reportedly Has a Huge Budget

Director Christopher Nolan has made a practice of working on whatever budget he has been given. One of his earliest accomplishments was Memento, which he made for $9 million, and his budgets and films have just continued to grow since then as he has proved to produce one box office smash after another.

One of the largest scale films of his that’s also one of my favorites is Inception, which he made on $160 million, but that wasn’t even his largest budget. The Dark Knight Rises has that title with a $250 million budget.

This next film is looking to be another giant undertaking with a $225 million budget, over double that of his last film, Dunkirk, and that movie was incredibly large in scale! We don’t know much about the upcoming film Tenet yet, as Nolan has really been keeping details under wraps, but we know it will be “an

Halle Berry Tops 'Catwoman' Poll

According to TorontoCatWoman.Com, the Hollywood Reporter has named Oscar winner Halle Berry as America's favorite, supernaturally endowed 'Catwoman' movie actress, from a poll conducted among 2,201 adults. The under-rated performance by Berry won 42% of the votes, edging out "Batman Returns" actress Michelle Pfeiffer at 41% and Anne Hathaway in "The Dark Knight Rises" at 26% of the vote:

"...'Patience Phillips', a meek designer discovers a dark conspiracy within the cosmetics company she works for that involves a dangerous product which could cause widespread health problems.

New Poll Reveals Fans Prefer Halle Berry’s Catwoman Over Michelle Pfeiffer’s

A few days after a Batman poll stirred up nationwide controversy, another survey is out that’s bound to end up being even more controversial. Over 2,201 adults have spoken their minds and declared that Halle Berry’s Catwoman is somehow superior to Michelle Pfeiffer’s. Read that sentence again if you have to.

It’s currently unknown whether or not those thousands of adults were inebriated when voting and/or happen to be related to Berry, but those seem to be the only reasonable explanations as to why anyone would say this. No offense to the Academy Award winner, but her portrayal as the iconic Gotham City villain is often considered one of the worst of all-time. The character’s 2004 standalone film with her at the forefront was a box office bomb. It’s since become a punchline when discussing bad movies and even won Berry a Razzie for Worst Actress.

Estonia Braces for Huge Christopher Nolan Shoot, ‘Tenet’ Reportedly His Priciest Original Film

Estonia Braces for Huge Christopher Nolan Shoot, ‘Tenet’ Reportedly His Priciest Original Film
One of the earliest rumors that circulated about Christopher Nolan’s 2020 movie “Tenet” referred to the project as a “massive, innovative, action blockbuster,” and that seems to be correct considering the reported budget of the film is in the $225 million range. Nolan is gearing up to shoot part of the project in Estonia and Estonian Public Broadcasting (Err) first reported the budget number. Estonian finance minister Martin Helme is eager to provide the film with around $5.6 million in funding through the Film Estonia film fund as production is expected to boost the local economy.

“Estonia stands to win a lot,” Helme told Err about Nolan coming to film in the country. “On one hand, part of the support paid out will make it back into the state’s coffers as taxes, and on the other there is work and revenue for different sectors, from the film industry right down to the caterers.

Why A Spider-Man 4 Comic Book Would Be So Great For The Industry

If you’re an avid reader of comic books, then there’s a good chance you’ve read a media tie-in at some point – and no, I’m not talking about adaptations for existing movies. In recent years, we’ve seen TV shows like Smallville, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files continue their sagas in the medium we love.

On a similar note, we’ve seen the surface scratched when it comes to films that never were. Though Frank Miller was credited as a writer on RoboCop 2, his original screenplay didn’t exactly find itself adapted. Luckily, it was produced as a comic down the line. Conversely, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash brought us a crossover sequel of epic proportions.

The reason I’m bringing this up is because Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 has once again become a topic for discussion. In case you hadn’t heard,

Bautista as Bane: Marvel Star Is Willing to Take on The Batman and the Dceu

Bautista as Bane: Marvel Star Is Willing to Take on The Batman and the Dceu
Dave Bautista has responded to all of those fan requests for him to play Bane in the Dceu, and he's down to take on The Batman. Bautista got his start as a professional wrestler, but in the past handful of years, he's been carving out quite the career as a movie star, which really kicked off with his role as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, he's expressing interest in dipping his toes into the DC universe as well. And honestly, this isn't that unrealistic. Could we really see him duking it out with Robert Pattinson's Batman one day?

For starters, Dave Bautista has been a fan-favorite for Bane, a classic Batman villain, for some time. Recently, a fan took to Twitter to declare his support for the idea after watching a YouTube video that suggested this particular casting choice. Bautista got wind of the tweet and responded with two very simple,
