Tony Gilroy on solving the “mess” of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

When Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Ron Howard would be replacing Chris Miller and Phil Lord as director of Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans of the blockbuster franchise felt a certain sense of deja vu.

A similar – although not quite as extreme – situation happened on the previous Anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with Lucasfilm bringing in Oscar-nominated filmmaker Tony Gilroy to work alongside Gareth Edwards, overseeing extensive reshoots and the post-production process.

Speaking to The Moment with Brian Koppelman podcast (via THR), Gilroy has now spoken for the first time about his work on the movie, and his efforts to salvage the “mess” that Lucasfilm had found themselves in.

“It was just a mess and fear that they gotten themselves in,” said Gilroy. “I’ve never been interested in Star Wars ever, so I have no reverence for it whatsoever. I was unafraid of that. And

Zack Snyder Explains Why Wayne Manor’s A Ruin In Batman V Superman

If you’ve been following superhero movie news at all this week, you’ll have seen that Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League (well, bits of it) director Zack Snyder has been spilling his guts on Vero about the imagery and canon of the films as he conceived them. We’ve seen stories about the repeated use of horses, Lex Luthor killing his father and explanations of the ‘Knightmare’ sequence.

The latest of these revelations concerns not-so-stately Wayne Manor, specifically why it was a partially destroyed ruin in Batman V Superman. While the jury’s out on whether the fact that Zack Snyder has had to go online and repeatedly explain what the film was trying to say is indicative of it being great cinema, this particular explanation rubs me up the wrong way.

Christopher Nolan Vows to Watch More Indian Cinema, Calls ‘Pather Panchali’ One of the ‘Best Films Ever Made’
Christopher Nolan visited Mumbai, India over Easter weekend to continue his fight to preserve celluloid film. The director joined British visual artist Tacita Dean for a series of events as part of India’s “Reframing the Future of Film” campaign, which included sold out screenings of “Dunkirk” in 70mm and “Interstellar” in 35mm.

“We had a very productive session with the Indian industry, just like we have had in Hollywood and the U.K.,” Nolan told press about his visit. “We are really trying to engage filmmakers in this discussion in how we can continue to enjoy a celluloid, photo chemical, analog infrastructure in filmmaking.”

“It’s not about film versus digital,” the director stressed. “It’s about preserving this medium for future generations.”

Nolan pointed out that his visit to India made sense since Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world, which makes it even more important

Justice League Concept Art Reveals Batman’s Scrapped Batcycle

Over the course of Batman’s expansive cinematic history, the Caped Crusader has enjoyed no shortage of vehicles. Most notable of them has been the Batmobile, his highly stylized car that has appeared in some form or fashion in every movie he’s appeared. Still, there have been other methods of transportation, like, for instance, the Batwing and even the Batskiboat.

But one notable omission, at least in my view, has been that of the Batcycle. Sure, we may have seen the Batpod in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, but the Batcycle hasn’t been seen in its purest form since Adam West wore the cowl. And before you split hairs with us, we’re well aware that it’s appeared in animation and comics in the time since; we’re talking live action here.

Believe it or not, it came close to appearing in Justice League,

Shortly after the film rights to Doctor Dolittle were auctioned off to Universal Studios, the production studio announced their plans for a reboot of the film. The children's book series was first turned into a film in 1967. The film was later rebooted in 1998, with Eddie Murphy starring this time around. This particular film earned itself two sequels.

The planned reboot under Universal Pictures was announced and will be titled The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. set to star, and an April 2019 release. It will be written and directed by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan. Gaghan has previously written and / or directed films such as Syriana, Gold, Havoc, and Rules of Engagement.

This was all we knew about the film for quite a while, until Robert Downey Jr. recently took to Twitter to reveal the full cast list for next year's film. This star studded cast includes: Robert Downey Jr.

DVD Review – Female Fight Club (2016)

Female Fight Club, 2016.

Directed by Miguel A. Ferrer.

Starring Amy Johnston, Cortney Palm, Rey Goyos, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Zito, Levy Tran, Shaun Brown, Sean Faris, and Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez.

Synopsis:

A retired fighter reluctantly returns to the sport in order to rescue her sister from an unscrupulous underground promoter.

Female Fight Club is obviously a title designed to evoke a certain idea, and when you have action legend Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV/Universal Soldier) and stunt coordinator Amy Johnston (Deadpool/Suicide Squad) amongst the cast then you would assume the ingredients are in place for a rollicking action rollercoaster in the vein of other fighting competition movies like Bloodsport, Enter the Dragon or even something brutal but a little more thought-provoking, like Fight Club of course. Well, think on because despite lofty ambitions, Female Fight Club has the heart but not the stamina to go the distance against any of those classics.

Justice League Ends Run with Lowest Dceu Box Office Yet

Justice League Ends Run with Lowest Dceu Box Office Yet
Justice League has officially concluded its run at the box office and it can now be declared the lowest-grossing Dceu movie to date. The live-action, interconnected DC movie universe got started in 2013 with Man of Steel, just a year after Christopher Nolan concluded his seminal Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises. That movie has found its fans and did modestly well at the box office, but it never seemed possible that the first live-action Justice League movie could somehow make less money than a middling Superman movie did at the box office. Yet, here we are.

All told, Justice League brought in $657,924,295. That number would be cause for celebration for many blockbuster movies, but this wasn't your average tentpole franchise movie. This is the first time in cinema history that the Justice League, DC's most important superhero team, has ever assembled on the big screen in live-action. Unfortunately, they

Robert Rodriguez: The $7,000 Movie Is Now Reality TV on ‘Rebel Without a Crew’

Robert Rodriguez: The $7,000 Movie Is Now Reality TV on ‘Rebel Without a Crew’
Before Robert Rodriguez created the El Rey Network in 2013, he came up with the contest: He would task burgeoning filmmakers with executing their first features in two weeks for just $7,000, the same limitations that produced his storied debut. (Said Rodriguez: “I thought no one was going to see it; that’s why I spent so little.”) “El Mariachi” secured Columbia Pictures distribution and the Guinness World Record for lowest-budget flick to earn more than $1 million (the same amount the studio reportedly spent on its marketing).

For the film’s quarter-century anniversary, Rodriguez made the competition a reality: Borrowing its name from Rodriguez’s 1995 memoir, “Rebel Without a Crew” began streaming March 19 on go90. He handpicked five directors (who include three women) from a capped pool of more than 2,000 applicants.

Each contestant had directed only shorts and possessed a completed feature script (or said they did). Rodriguez flew them and their on-set plus-ones into Austin,

Marvel Studios whipped fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe into a frenzy yesterday with the release of a brand new trailer for April’s superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War. The culmination of the first ten years of the McU, the film pits Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy against the Mad Titan, Thanos, as he attempts to acquire the six Infinity Stones, granting him unlimited power in his quest to wipe out half of the life in the universe.

So, what did our writing team make of this latest peek at Infinity War? Here’s our reactions:

Gotham Star Would Jump At The Chance To Play Catwoman In Gotham City Sirens

While Gotham has had its ups and downs over the years, lately it feels like it’s found its groove with season 4, which has taken inspiration from classic Batman stories like The Long Halloween, Year One and No Man’s Land. One consistent highlight over the four seasons has been Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. The character’s appearance in the show has differed from almost every portrayal across TV, comics and film by showing Kyle growing up.

Bicondova was only 15 when she began playing the part, so it’s safe to say she’s got a better understanding of her than most. And, were Warner Bros. interested in a little cross-media pollination, she’d be a great candidate to portray Catwoman on the big screen in the upcoming Gotham City Sirens.

In fact, Revenge of the Fans mentioned the prospect of her taking the role in an

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Used Steven Soderbergh for Inspiration and Shot With A New Kind of IMAX Camera

The Russo Brothers are known for their surprising sources of inspiration when it comes to their Marvel movies. The filmmaking duo cited Alan J. Pakula’s classic conspiracy thriller “The Parallax View” when talking about “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” while David Fincher’s “Se7en” was listed as a reference point for “Captain America: Civil War.” So what movies did the brothers look at before “Infinity War”? It turns out a Steven Soderbergh crime classic.

“The movies that we looked at [were’Two Days in the Valley’ and ‘Out of Sight,'” Anthony Russo told Collider. “We always look to movies for an inspiration for the energy that we’re looking for, or a narrative construct that we want to be inspired by, and those two films in particular.”

Joe Russo admits that people have misinterpreted their inspiration choices in the past. For “Infinity War,” for instance, films like “Out of Sight” weren’t used for plot
