Robert Zemeckis Returns To Science Fiction With ‘Project Blue Book’ & ‘Bios’

Robert Zemeckis Returns To Science Fiction With ‘Project Blue Book’ & ‘Bios’
Exclusive: Now this has a familiar ring to it: Robert Zemeckis is revisiting the 1950s to rewrite history with one new project and then he’s going back to the future to prove the power of love with a second project.

No, Zemeckis isn’t revving up the DeLorean for more Marty McFly sequels — however, the director of the Back to the Future trilogy (1985-1990) and Contact (1997) is making a relatively rare return to science fiction with the two projects. This time around, however, his foray into the genre is in a producing role. On Monday, Zemeckis talked about the two projects: Bios, the upcoming feature film; and Project Blue Book, a television series that premieres in January on History.

Bios, scheduled to start filming early next year, reunites Zemeckis with one of his most celebrated collaborators. “We’re producing a really magnificent science fiction project called Bios with Tom Hanks,

Cameron Monaghan Confirms Batman Will Appear On Gotham Season 5

After waiting five years to see young Bruce Wayne graduate to becoming Batman, Gotham fans would naturally be pretty perturbed if the Dark Knight never appeared on the prequel show in its upcoming fifth and final season. Thankfully, the cast and crew have been very open about the fact that the Caped Crusader is 100% on his way.

For example, Cameron Monaghan – who plays proto-Joker Jeremiah Valeska on the series – was asked by a fan on Twitter if Batman would be turning up in season 5. The actor wasted no time in confirming that this was the case with a simple “yes.”

Those paying attention to all the updates about Gotham season 5 will know that we shouldn’t expect to see Batman’s pointy ears rise out of the shadows until the series finale. Showrunner John Stephens has previously confirmed that the last episode will jump forward ten years and give us

Avengers 4 Director Says The Runtime Is Currently 3 Hours Long

Now that superhero movies are cock of the walk over in Hollywood, I’m very glad whenever studios don’t mandate that these things must be confined to 90 or 120-minute running times. Hey, some tales can organically accommodate for just that, but whenever the stakes are high or you’re dealing with an ensemble piece, it’s best to afford the narrative ample breathing room.

In the case of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ next cinematic outing, both those requirements will be met, so I’m going in with the expectation of remaining in my seat for a fair amount of time when the saga resumes next spring. Of course, there were reports circulating not long ago saying how a three-hour running time isn’t likely, but now we’re being led to believe otherwise.

You see, while doing a Q&A session at his new bar, Duello, Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo said the epic does,

Matt Reeves And Ben Affleck Said To Have Very Different Visions For The Batman

The Dceu is turning out to be a fascinating experiment in what happens when a cinematic universe fails to gain that Marvel momentum yet pushes on regardless. The commercially underwhelming Justice League in particular feels like the moment where the chickens came home to roost, and the consequences continue to be felt in the rocky journey that The Batman is taking to theaters.

Comic Book Movie has just published a thorough breakdown of the troubled history of the Caped Crusader’s latest screen incarnation, while offering the update that disagreements between Ben Affleck, Warner Bros. and director Matt Reeves could be continuing to hold up the character’s first solo film since The Dark Knight Rises.

I Usually Can't Watch Anything Scary, but Here's Why I'm Hooked on The Haunting of Hill House
If you told me I'd spend 48 hours binging The Haunting of Hill House , I would've said, "there's no way in hell." I'm not a fan of scary things. I refuse to enter a corn maze, I'll cry if you jump out at me from behind a wall, and I walked out of The Dark Knight Rises in high school because I was too freaked out. A Batman movie, y'all - we'll revisit what's truly wrong with my psyche at a later date. Yet somehow, last weekend I found myself pressing play on the Netflix show that's giving fans collective nightmares. So, is The Haunting of Hill House scary? Yep, and I'd absolutely watch all 10 episodes again.

The psychological and emotional drama is more piercing than any scream could ever be.

Gotham Season 5 Premiere Date Finally Announced

Though it may be tough to accept how Gotham‘s fifth season will indeed be its last, the reality of the situation is that every show must conclude at some point. Still, not knowing when the Batman prequel series would return for its final tour has made the wait especially hard, but all that ends today.

Fortunately, Fox has let the cat out of the bag, thus announcing the final ten episodes will begin airing on Thursday, January 3rd at 8 pm Est, therefore remaining in the very same time slot season 4 called home. Hey, this may be a truncated affair, but at least it wasn’t sent to Friday nights in order to live out its remaining days.

Oddly enough, we probably know more about what to expect going in than we had with previous seasons. The reasoning behind this is that filming commenced over the summer as usual, so

"Gotham" -Season 5 - New Set Images

  • SneakPeek
Take a look at new set images, plus footage from the final season of "Gotham" airing in 2019, adapting DC Comics' "No Man's Land", including a first look at 'Bane' (Shane West) and 'Bruce Wayne' (David Mazouz) revealing the first 'Batman' suit:

"Its closer to 'The Dark Knight Rises'," said series showrunner David Stephens.

"It's a little more metallic 'Bat battle-y' looking rather than something like the 'Suicide' one or the 'Affleck' one"...

"... it's got to look good. Because you don't want to spend five years, and all of a sudden go, 'Great episode, but that was a really crappy looking costume.'

"There’s a lot of pressure, but luckily our wardrobe department is amazing so all the designs they're doing are going to be great. And we went with short ears..."

New Gotham Season 5 Photos Reveal Bruce’s Proto-Batman Armor

Gotham is reaching its end with the 10-part fifth season and you know what that means – Batman’s finally coming to the Fox prequel series. Bruce Wayne’s destiny as the Dark Knight has been hinted in myriad ways over the past few seasons, including a spectral vision of the Bat during a hallucination in season 4, but it’s been confirmed 100% that he’ll suit up as the caped crusader in the series finale.

While filming hasn’t progressed to that episode just yet, the latest photos from the set reveal that young Master Bruce will don a proto-version of Batman’s armor at an earlier point in the season. You can check out the awesome images below, one of which sees David Mazouz together with a bunch of the other cast members, decked out in an armored vest and dark trench coat.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Pays Tribute To The Dark Knight’s Heath Ledger

It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Heath Ledger’s villainous turn in The Dark Knight one of the most celebrated performances in all of blockbuster history, but in a recent Throwback Thursday Instagram post by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, The Dark Knight Rises star offered a more personal recollection of the late Oscar-winner.

When Gordon-Levitt was still in his teens, the actor performed opposite Ledger in the 1999 high school rom-com 10 Things I Hate About You. In the time the two spent together during filming, Gordon-Levitt recalls how his co-star helped shape his taste in music.

“Heath turned me on to a lot of great music during that summer we worked together. I remember the first time I ever heard Radiohead’s Ok Computer was when I was riding in the back of his car.”

New Gotham Set Photos Bring Us Closer To The Next Bane

You’ve heard of him, haven’t you? Bane?

He’s arguably one of Bruce Wayne’s deadliest foes – a hulking brute capable of breaking Batman’s back as though he were snapping a toothpick.

It’s a character that took on a life of its own thanks to The Dark Knight Rises and Tom Hardy’s raw, emotionally-charged performance, in particular, but now it’s Shane West’s turn to pick up the mantle as Bane. And, well, let’s just say his supercharged mercenary is worlds away from the one that brought Gotham to its knees six years ago.

Speaking of Gotham, a series of never-before-seen set photos have emerged onto the interwebs (h/t Heroic Hollywood) today, which essentially reveal a major dust-up between Bane and, er, Jim Gordon. Let’s just say we don’t fancy the latter’s chances of survival…

Gotham – Season 5: Time jumps and Batman at last

We won’t see the fifth and final season of Gotham until its premiere in 2019. With the final appearance of the show at the recent New York Comic Con, however, the prequel to the iconic superhero Batman is already receiving a lot of attention. From the reveal that we’ll finally be treated to an appearance from the Dark Knight himself in the finale to the fact that Shane West will star as Bane, there’s no shortage of talking points.

Another point of discussion has been whether the show would jump forward in time after the events that unfolded at the end of Season 4. The final episode ended with Jeremiah (Cameron Monaghan) blowing up the bridges connecting Gotham with the rest of civilisation. That essentially set up a story inspired by DC comic books story “No Man’s Land”. Well, it seems we can now expect a three-month jump

Tony Gilroy shines light on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots

Tony Gilroy has teased the state Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was in when he came in to direct the reshoots.

Today, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story holds a high place in the pantheon of Star Wars films for many a fan, with the movie giving a fascinating look into the pivotal mission to steal the first Death Star plans.

The film wasn’t always looking like a winner, however, as Tony Gilroy was drafted in to fix parts of the film during reshoots. Speaking at a Montclair State University event (via NorthJesery.com), Gilroy said about the characters:

“When things pass through many hands and there’s a great deal of confusion … and there’s all kinds of accessories and jewelleries and bootstraps and zippers, and all the rest of the stuff. The purity for the characters, if it’s not there to begin with, it just

‘Gotham': Here’s How Bane Will Look in ‘Batman’ Prequel’s Final Season
Fans of both mouth-breathing villains who break Batman’s spine and weird-as-hell clunky costumes had plenty to celebrate on Monday, as the first images of Bane, from the upcoming fifth and final season of “Gotham,” were released to the public.

Played by “ER” and “Salem” alum Shane West, Bane will likely make his debut during the first run of Season 5 episodes, judging from the title of episode 8, “I Am Bane.” You can see exactly what being Bane means in the image below, tweeted out Monday by “Gotham” writer and producer Tze Chun:

Gotham Season 5: First Look at Shane West as Bane

Joseph Baxter Oct 22, 2018

Shane West’s version of Batman-breaker Bane on Gotham Season 5 has been revealed in a first-look image.

Gotham Season 5 has been teasing a tour-de-force final season that looks to wrap the eccentric Fox Batman prequel series in a satisfyingly poetic manner. Amongst said teases is the debut of the masked muscle-bound Batman-back-breaker and reaper of reckonings himself, Bane, as played by Shane West. Now, the first image of West in full Bane mode has been released.

Here it is, the Gotham-ized version of the brutal Batman antagonist, Bane. – At least, that’s what we’re being told by writer/producer Tze Chun, who posted the image today.

Longtime viewers of Gotham understand that the series, in its – often boundaries pushing – status as a prequel set during a time when Bruce Wayne is a teen, tends to embrace a unique aesthetic that tends manifest as a bizarre stylistic amalgam.

First Look At Shane West As Bane On Gotham

Now that Shane West has been confirmed as Bane for Gotham season 5, there’s no more room for debate as to whom Eduardo Dorrance may be. At first, it was assumed he’d wind up as King Snake, the brute’s father in the comics, but it’s important to stress how that guy’s first name was “Edmund,” not “Eduardo.” Basically, the producers of the show gave the iconic villain a full name to go along with their reinterpretation.

And though the creative minds behind the Batman prequel series have taken liberties with certain characters’ origins and such, much of the costuming has been pretty spot on. If you don’t believe me, please refer to past appearances made by Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, Firefly, Professor Pyg and Solomon Grundy. I’d throw the Joker in there as well, but Jeremiah Valeska isn’t actually the true Clown Prince of Crime.
