Film Review: ‘Teen Titans Go! to the Movies’

Film Review: ‘Teen Titans Go! to the Movies’
“Teen Titans Go! to the Movies,” a brash and blithe-spirited animated comedy adventure for kids, demonstrates that when it comes to superhero movies, meta has become the new normal. The whole meta fixation in mainstream movies didn’t start with superhero films, of course. It probably goes back to “Scream” (1996) or even “Last Action Hero” (1993). Yet it was still startling, in 2014, to see how far “The Lego Movie” — a picture that invited three- and four-year-olds into its big tent of fun — could push the notion of look!-we’re-using-Lego-blocks-to-construct-a-fantasy-world-that-we’re-also-deconstructing-the-concept-of.

The Lego Batman Movie” nudged the cheeky self-awareness a notch further by using it to tweak the mindset of Bruce Wayne, a rich-dude vigilante with narcissistic personality disorder who enjoyed being Batman not because he liked saving people but because he loved the image of himself as Batman. And it wouldn’t be farfetched to say that “The Lego Batman Movie” was influenced,

Sketch interview with Rob Liefeld in the Deadpool dream suite at Comic Con!

  • JoBlo
At the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego this year, Fox Home Entertainment has rented out the biggest suite and turned it into one that represents the home of both Blind Al and Wade Wilson Aka Deadpool. Filled with little winks and nods to the film, crayon-drawn artwork, a copy of Green Lantern and (assuming) a cure for blindness somewhere under the floorboards, it seemed like the perfect setting to talk to Deadpool's creator, Rob Liefeld, who is always an energetic and geeky presence.

‘Deadpool’ Director Tim Miller Discussed Turning Negasonic Teenage Warhead Into The Villain For The Sequel

Considering “Deadpool 2” was an incredible success at the box office, proving once again that Ryan Reynold’s R-rated superhero is still a hit with audiences, the drama surrounding the production of the film has disappeared from the discussion. However, back before David Leitch came aboard to direct the film, “Deadpool” director Tim Miller was at the reins. And apparently, he had some very different ideas for where to take the franchise.

Zazie Beetz In Talks to Join 'Joker' Film

  • Cinelinx
A rising star may be joining Joaquin Phoenix in Todd Phillips' Joker Movie!  More within...

Just before Sdcc 2018 opened its doors, Warner Bros. began announcing information regarding Todd Phillips' "Joker", starring Joaquin Phoenix.  With production set to begin in September to meet an October 2019 release date, we knew that casting news would like trickle out over the next couple of months, but here we are a few days later and we've already got a possible casting.

According to a report from THR, Atlanta and Deadpool 2 star, Zazie Beetz is in talks to trade in her luck to play opposite Phoenix in the upcoming DC film, Joker.

While details are being kept airtight, for the modestly budgeted film ($55 mil), it's said that Beetz would play "a single mother who catches the interest of the man who will become the "clown prince of crime." As we mentioned, previously, Phillips and co-writer

Deadpool 2 Star Wants A Crossover With The New Mutants

With The New Mutants being marketed as the first horror movie of the X-Men franchise, it’s a safe bet that the Josh Boone-helmed flick will have a drastically different tone from the comedic Deadpool films, and yet Stefan Kapicic is eager to have these two parts of the cinematic universe meet.

That’s not to say that the Colossus actor wants to see the Merc with a Mouth cracking wise amidst all the panic and dread of next year’s release, but rather Kapicic desires a reunion between his own character and Colossus’ sister Illyana Rasputin, aka Magik. The teleporting superheroine will have her big screen debut in New Mutants, portrayed by Split actress Anya Taylor-Joy, and in an interview with Red Carpet News, Kapicic has now expressed interest in sharing some scenes with his onscreen sibling.

“I’m waiting for Colossus to meet his sister Illyana,” Kapicic said.

Dark Phoenix Director Hopes He Never Stops Making X-Men Movies

Despite a report to the contrary surfacing earlier this month, on Thursday, Comcast officially pulled out of the bidding war for the rights to intellectual properties owned by 21st Century Fox – which include Deadpool the Fantastic Four and the X-Men – leaving The Walt Disney Company as the sole competitor vying for the Rupert Murdoch-founded corporation.

However, should the pending amalgamation go through – which, by the way, has already been previously green-lit by the Department of Justice – the aforementioned assets could find themselves incorporated into the highest grossing film franchise of all time: the McU. And although longtime producer of the mutant brand, and Academy Award nominee, Simon Kinberg has no issue with the integration, he does hope he’s “never” done making X-Men movies.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kinberg – who’s worked on nine X-Men features – was asked if the franchise will ever reach a point when it’s too much,

Colossus Actor Stefan Kapicic Wants To Go Up Against Galactus In The McU

Now that Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox is ready to move forward – at the expense of Comcast – comic book fans are beginning to dream up weird and wonderful crossovers involving Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and those Marvel characters about to join them.

We are, of course, referring to Deadpool, Fantastic Four and the X-Men, who are ostensibly homeward bound now that Comcast has ended its pursuit of Fox. There is still some work to be done before fans can truly celebrate, mind you; this proposed Disney-Fox merger is still subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, but it’s ‘so far, so good’ for the Mouse House.

Over on the Fox lot, Colossus actor Stefan Kapicic is still hoping to one day join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and go up against Galactus. While promoting Deadpool 2 back in May, the towering actor sat down with Red Carpet TV News (h/t ComicBook.

Tim Miller Originally Hoped For Negasonic Teenage Warhead To Be The Villain Of Deadpool 2

“Negasonic Teenage–What The Shit?! That’s the coolest name ever.”

Be that as it may, it turns out Negasonic Teenage Warhead was initially earmarked to be Deadpool 2‘s chief villain, long before the Fox sequel changed hands and David Leitch, co-director of John Wick and the creative mind behind Atomic Blonde, took charge at the helm.

Back in May, Brianna Hildebrand, the actor responsible for Negasonic Teenage Warhead (real name: Ellie Phimister), revealed this juicy little tidbit while appearing at McM London Comic Con, where she spoke to Red Carpet News TV (h/t ComicBook.com) about how her adolescent anti-hero almost walked down a very different path during Deadpool 2.

I feel like every time I wish for something specific, maybe it doesn’t happen, or the opposite happens. I know that we switched directors for the second film, but I remember after the first film was over,

Josh Brolin Reveals the Reality of Being 50, Shares a Selfie After Peeing 'All Over’ Himself

Josh Brolin Reveals the Reality of Being 50, Shares a Selfie After Peeing 'All Over’ Himself
Getting older isn’t making life any easier — or drier — for Josh Brolin.

The actor shared the realities of being 50 years old in an Instagram photo he shared on Thursday.

In the photo, Brolin stood shirtless wearing dark-colored cargo pants while pointing at his leg which had dark splash marks on it.

“Stoked about pissing all over myself again,” he wrote in the caption. “One of the great gifts about turning 50 is the sudden, biological changing out of your shower head.”

“What used to be a rush of garden hose, now seems to have morphed into a multi-directional sprinkler,” he continued.

Dave Franco (The Disaster Artist), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising), Corey Hawkins (The Walking Dead) and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) have joined Ryan Reynolds in Six Underground, the upcoming action film from director Michael Bay and Netflix.

Six Underground has been scripted by Deadpool and Deadpool 2 screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and is described as “a high testosterone mission movie” which will see Reynolds leading a team of four men and two women as they attempt to stop some kind of evil.

Production on the $125 million budgeted film is slated to begin in September, with further casting news expected soon. As yet, there’s no word on an exact release date, but Netflix is looking to debut it in 2019.

Disney CEO Excited To Move Forward With Fox Acquisition

It’s officially official: Comcast is no longer in pursuit of 21st Century Fox and its sought-after media assets.

Despite two eye-watering bids ($65 billion) and months of speculation, the U.S. cable giant announced Thursday that the Disney-Comcast bidding war had come to a close, and it’s the Mouse House, whose $71.3 billion offer was tabled three weeks ago, that is now in pole position to acquire most of 20th Century Fox and its entertainment assets – X-Men, Deadpool and the Fantastic Four included.

Yes, Marvel’s First Family are headed home, which will only expand Marvel Studios and its reign over the superhero genre for months – if not decades – to come. This potentially historic merger is still subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, so Disney isn’t across the finish line just yet, but Bob Iger, for one, is feeling pretty confident about the whole ordeal now that Comcast

Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg “never” wants to stop making X-Men movies

X-Men producer and director Simon Kinberg has said that he never wants to stop making these movies.

Simon Kinberg has been involved with X-Men movies for a long time and is immensely proud of what he and his colleagues have achieved, especially on critical hits like Deadpool and Logan.

Asked recently by The Hollywood Reporter if he would ever have enough of making X-Men movies, Kinberg responded: “I hope never. We have found in terms of doing stand-alone movies like Logan and Deadpool that we can smuggle a different genre into the comic book movie. Logan was a Western, and Deadpool was like a Monty Python, R-rated comedy.

“Genre material has sort of pushed out a lot of drama and comedies. If you can smuggle those kinds of movies into this very digestible genre, then you can have more fun.”

And when Kinberg (director of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Comcast Lets Disney Win Bidding War for Fox

One of the most costly bidding wars in the history of media is officially over. Comcast has announced that they are no longer going to pursue Fox, meaning that Disney's current bid is going to stick and, assuming Disney gains the remaining approvals they need, the sale will be a done deal. There are still a lot of moving pieces in place, but Disney's only real competition for Fox's media assets has taken themselves out of the running. Here's what Comcast had to say in a statement.

"Comcast does not intend to pursue further the acquisition of the Twenty-First Century Fox assets and, instead, will focus on our recommended offer for Sky."

Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts congratulated Disney saying, "I'd like to congratulate [chairman and CEO] Bob Iger and the team at Disney and commend the Murdoch family and Fox for creating such a desirable and respected company." Disney had

Michael Bay’s ‘6 Underground’ Sets Ensemble to Join Ryan Reynolds (Exclusive)
Michael Bay’s “6 Underground” looks to be full steam ahead, with Dave Franco, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona, and Corey Hawkins signing on to join Ryan Reynolds in the big-budget action pic.

Netflix will co-finance and distribute Bay’s next film, marking both the director and Reynolds’s first collaboration with the streaming giant.

Skydance developed the movie and brought on Bay and Reynolds before going to Netflix to partner on the project. It will serve as a co-financier and producer.

The film will also reunite Reynolds with “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2” scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who wrote the spec for “6 Underground.”

The actioner is based on an original idea from Wernick and Reese, who will also executive produce. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce “Six Underground” along with Bay and Ian Bryce.

The X-Men Are Headed Home As Comcast Pulls Out Of Fox Bidding

Looks like the Fantastic Four are heading home to Marvel, and they’re bringing Deadpool and the X-Men along for the ride.

How do we know? Comcast has officially waved the white flag, after the U.S. cable giant announced Thursday that it has now pulled out of the bidding war for 20th Century Fox, ceding those precious assets to Disney, which lodged a $71 billion cash and stock offer late last month. In a statement, Comcast reaffirmed that it will instead shift its focus to British broadcaster Sky, which is 39 percent owned by Fox.

Back in May, the cable company looked to have pipped Disney at the post with an all-cash bid, but today’s withdrawal signals the end of what was undoubtedly one of the biggest corporate duels in modern media history.

Per Comcast CEO Brian Roberts:

Comcast does not intend to pursue further the acquisition of the Twenty-First Century Fox assets and,

Deadpool’s Bathroom Stunt at Comic-Con May Be the Weirdest ‘Swag’ of the Year

Wednesday night is known as Preview Night at San Diego Comic-Con, an opportunity to get a glimpse of the booths and exhibits on display for excited pop culture fans — but the most interesting thing at the convention center might have been found in the bathroom, courtesy of the Marvel Universe’s least reverent and least killable superheroes.

In at least one of the women’s restrooms at the convention center (IndieWire was not able to verify that this was also the case in the men’s restrooms or do a complete survey of every women’s restroom at this time), if you turned to look at the paper seat cover dispenser in a stall, you saw this message peeking out:

Wondering what it means when a piece of bathroom tissue tells you that “This is all Fox could afford?” Well, once you pulled it out of the dispenser, the full image was revealed.

The Oscar Legacy of ‘The Dark Knight': Christopher Nolan’s Hit Changed the Rules, But Did That Even Matter?

The Oscar Legacy of ‘The Dark Knight': Christopher Nolan’s Hit Changed the Rules, But Did That Even Matter?
The release of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” 10 years ago led directly to a decade in which big commercial hits like “Wonder Woman,” “Deadpool,” “Straight Outta Compton,” “Skyfall,” “Bridesmaids” and “Star Trek” received Best Picture nominations.

Best picture nominations, that is, from the Producers Guild Awards. Not the Oscars.

Sure, the Academy changed its rules in the aftermath of the notorious 2009 snub of “The Dark Knight” in an attempt to increase the likelihood of well-reviewed commercial hits landing nominations for the top category, but the change has mostly resulted in nominations for even more little indie films, not more big studio ones.
