DC Movies Buzz: 'Lobo' Details Teased; J.K. Simmons' Crazy 'Justice League' Look Stuns

Wed, 06/08/2016 - 05:58

Back in March, we heard that Jason Fuchs (Pan, Wonder Woman) had been hired to write the screenplay for Lobo, based on the DC comic book character. Reportedly, Fuchs would "start from scratch with his own take" on the bounty hunter, described by our own Rick Marshall as DC's "most violent, edgy and altogether adult-oriented antihero."  DC has softened Lobo in recent years, making him "younger and hipper," so which version of the character would emerge on...

DC's 'Justice League' Gets Shortened Title, Will Be the End of a Trilogy

Tue, 06/07/2016 - 04:22

For a while, it seemed Hollywood was going to keep making movie titles longer and longer and longer. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of those recently exemplifying the trend, in a bad way. But perhaps we're headed in a new direction. One where even Batman v Superman's own megafranchise is learning to be more simple and concise. According to a recent tweet by DC Comics Chief Creative Officer (and DC Films cohead) Geoff Johns, the title of the Justice League movie is just...

John Boyega Will Cancel the Next Apocalypse In 'Pacific Rim 2'

Tue, 06/07/2016 - 04:21

Pacific Rim is the kind of movie with spectacle and literally larger-than-life characters that demands a franchise. That's why it's a special kind of frustrating to see Transformers movies come out seemingly left and right while a sequel to the far more original giant-robot movie struggles to get off the ground. The reasons for Pacific Rim 2's slow start, though, aren't entirely box office related. Legendary Pictures, which produced the first film, shifted its partnership...

What Parents Can Expect from 'TMNT: Out of the Shadows'

Mon, 06/06/2016 - 09:00

  In this day and age of hyperrealistic superheroes and villains where even Bruce Wayne is so flawed it’s hard to tell if he’s a good guy or a bad guy, as a parent I’m grateful for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the terrapins are made to look as authentic as giant humanoid turtles can look while never actually seeming real. The villains – mutant rhinoceros Bebop, mutant warthog Rock Steady and talking...

'Warcraft' Director Duncan Jones, on Making the Ultimate Video Game Movie

Mon, 06/06/2016 - 09:00

Duncan Jones is exhausted. He’s just spent the last three years of his life making Warcraft, the massive adaptation of the phenomenally popular series of video games created by Blizzard Entertainment over the past two decades. After directing the smaller, more character-driven sci-fi thrillers Moon (which he also wrote) and Source Code, Jones has taken the leap into blockbuster filmmaking with possibly the most formidable project he could have landed. Not only did he have to find a way...

A 'Splash' Remake Is Coming with One Major Twist

Mon, 06/06/2016 - 05:57

The idea for 1984's Splash was originally conceived during a late-night drive in 1977 after producer Brian Glazer was left wondering what would happen if he met a mermaid and fell in love. Cut to seven years later -- after many in Hollywood rejected the concept -- and the film Splash was born, starring Tom Hanks as a lowly everyman who falls for a mermaid (Daryl Hannah) while also trying to protect her from nefarious individuals out to capture her. Oh, and John Candy is awesome as Hanks'...

See a Bunch of New 'Batman v Superman' Footage in This DVD Trailer

Fri, 06/03/2016 - 06:22

We're nearly halfway through 2016 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still the most divisive movie of the year so far. Those who love it, love it with a raging passion. Those who hate it do so with a deafening indifference. And those who are somewhere in the middle seem to get caught in the crossfire from either camp. That reaction may not have been what the studio was going for, but it may very well end up lodging BvS deeper into pop culture than other superhero movies this year....

'The Flash' Movie Has a New Director... and He's Pretty Dope

Fri, 06/03/2016 - 06:02

There have been a number of shake-ups at Warner Bros. ever since Batman v Superman came up a bit short commercially and critically. Executives have been shuffled around and new divisions have been created to focus exclusively on the future of DC Comics movies. One of the very first changes made post-BvS was the departure of Seth Grahame-Smith from the director's chair on The Flash. At the time creative differences were cited as the reason, but it didn't take long for sources to say...

Are You Brave Enough to Watch the Killer-Shark Movie 'The Shallows' While Floating on Water?

Fri, 06/03/2016 - 05:57

It doesn't feel like a summer movie season without a movie to scare us away from ever going near the water, and this summer The Shallows (in theaters July 1) looks to be that movie.  So why not watch it while floating in water? Those brave enough to do just that are in luck -- one movie theater is actually staging a screening of The Shallows on water, but you'll need to have the guts (and be in Texas) in order to take on the challenge. Of course we're talking...

News Briefs: 'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Suggests Possible Mystique Spin-off

Thu, 06/02/2016 - 22:58

X-Men: Director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse) suggests that shape-shifting mutant Mystique (above) could be featured in an X-Men spin-off movie because she has a "different view of the world. … It opens up a lot of avenues." The character was originally played by Rebecca Romijn and more recently by Jennifer Lawrence, who has signaled her readiness to move on from the role. Still, Singer said that Mystique would be "right, whether it's Jennifer or not." [Empire...

Watch: The First 'Monster Trucks' Trailer Is Basically 'Herbie Fully Loaded' with Adorable Creatures

Thu, 06/02/2016 - 05:59

Randomly stumbling across Herbie Fully Loaded on TV the other day, a few things stood out. First, how delightful Lindsay Lohan and Justin Long were as fresh-faced teenagers. Second, just how dang charming the Herbie movies were. There's something about teens and a magical car with a mind of its own that just plain works. That formula is also why everything with Sam and Bumblebee is the best part of the first Transformers movie. Now that the first trailer for Monster Trucks is here, it...

See What Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man 4' Might Have Been

Thu, 06/02/2016 - 05:55

Back in 2007, Spider-Man 3 did not turn out exactly as director Sam Raimi wished. Though it was a financial success, earning more than $890 million worldwide, years later Raimi said, "It’s a movie that just didn’t work very well. I tried to make it work, but I didn’t really believe in all the characters, so that couldn’t be hidden from people who loved Spider-Man. I should’ve just stuck with the characters and the relationships and progressed them to the next...
