Two DC Superhero Movies Per Year

Are You Ready For More DC Superhero Movies?
In the past, Warner Bros. hasn't done too much with their partner, DC Comics. Sure, they've regularly put out films about Batman and Superman, but the line has really always stopped there. Despite having a cadre of superheros at their disposal, they've never seemed to be inclined to take full advantage of them. Then Marvel got into the movie business and now everything is changing.

 At New York Comic Con, is reporting that DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns expects two DC properties to hit theaters every year after the end of the Harry Potter franchise. The second most successful franchise of all time, the Harry Potter films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the box office since 2001 and each averages about $285 million. Naturally, the end of the series leaves a big whole in the pocket of the studio, and, apparently, they believe that their comic book rights are the perfect remedy.

Next summer will be a perfect litmu…

Marvel Superhero Will Appear In The Deadpool Movie?

Which Other Marvel Superhero Will  Appear In The Deadpool Movie?
Here’s the dish from New York Comic-Con on which Marvel universe characters you can expect to see in the promised Deadpool movie. I can tell you that there’s definitely one guest star lined up that really took me by surprise.

So if you don't want to find out who might be appearring then turn away now!

Of course, some of the characters are very closely associated with Deadpool anyway.

There’s Blind Al, Deadpool’s sort-of-roommate, and Patch, the barman-come-mercenary dispatcher who gives Deadpool his jobs. I’m sure you were already expecting those. Then there’s several Weapon-X characters, including (but not limited to) Wyre, Ajax, Sluggo and Garrison Kane.

Wade Wilson’s love affair with Vanessa Carlysle is apparently a key part of the story, though I’ve been promised that she’s never seen in her Copycat guise and there’s no indication she’s a mutant at all. But this won’t be a mutant-shy production…

Blue Valentine Trailer & NC-17 Rating

Blue Valentine Trailer And Slapped NC-17 Rating
Now after watching the trailer to the film you will wonder how did this film get slapped with the evil NC-17. The film is a romantic drama film written and directed by Derek Cianfrance. It is co-written by Joey Curtis and Cami Delavigne and stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.

The film centers on a married couple, Dean and Cindy, and their relationship over a number of years by shifting between different time periods. Problems with the marriage centre around Cindy's ambition, juxtaposed to Dean's contentment to centre his life around his wife and child.

After the Jump, it is explained why the film got the NC-17 rating.


It is a powerful, worthy film, and the NC-17 is an absolute head-scratcher. I'm told the rating was given for a scene in which the characters played by Gosling and Williams try to save their crumbling marriage by spending a night away in a hotel. They get drunk and their problems intensify when he wants …

Mike Myers To Voice Pepé Le Pew

Mike Myers To Voice Pepé Le Pew
Mike Myers used to joke that donning the 80 pounds of faux-latex blubber to play Fat Bastard in Austin Powers caused him to sweat so much that "by the end of the day, I was Pepé Le Pew." We have learned that Warner Bros. Pictures is now developing a live-action/CGI movie on the lovelorn French skunk and Myers is attached to voice the lead role.

The decision to reinvigorate the Looney Tunes cast of characters — which includes fading American icons like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig — is a high priority for Warner Bros., for while they still throw off a billion dollars in licensing revenue annually, that’s barely a fifth of what Disney makes every year from licensing better-known characters like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

Created in 1945, Pepé Le Pew starred in over a dozen animated short films for Warner Bros., and one of them, Chuck Jones’s For Scent-imental Reasons, even won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Subject (Cartoons) in 1…

First Picture Of Michelle Williams As Monroe

Michelle Williams As Monroe
It's icons 'r' us this afternoon, thanks to this uncannily doppelganger-like shot of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. The actress is togging up to play the iconic blonde in the Weinstein Company/Trademark Films co-production, now underway at Pinewood.

My Week With Marilyn is an adaptation of Colin Clark's novel, which recounts the story of Monroe's visit to Britain to film The Prince And The Showgirl with Lawrence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) in 1956.

As you might expect, the pair don't exactly become bosom buddies. Under pressure and looking for a temporary escape from the Hollywood spotlight, Monroe takes off on a week-long jaunt with Clark (Eddie Remayne), a lowly on-set assistant, in a kind of Roman Road holiday. Monroe, recently married to Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott), gets to sample the delights of London life. Here's hoping she gives jellied eels a wide berth.

Williams joins a strong British cast …

"Slash" Forms Slasher Films

"Slash" Forms His Own Movie Company-Slasher Films
Unless you answer to Rob Zombie, what musician has a name better suited to horror film making than Slash? The iconic guitarist of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver has teamed with Scout Productions to start Slasher Films. They will produce edgy contemporary horror fare with a nod to the thrillers of the '70s and '80s. They've set up their first: Nothing to Fear, a horror/thriller that follows a young family as it tries to reinvent itself by moving to a small town in rural Kansas. The family is tormented by an ancient demon with an insatiable blood lust. The script was written by Jonathan W.C. Mills, who's currently working on the Gold Circle pic Inside Passage.

"My audience is made up of young, edgy, discerning consumers, with an appetite for quality and a hint of anarchy."
Scout Productions has generated the TV series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and films that include Transsiberian, Session 9 a…

New 127 Hours Trailer & Poster

Do You Have The Will To Live?
Here is the second trailer for the upcoming film called 127 Hours, and it stars James Franco(Aron Ralston) and is directed by Danny Boyle(Slumdog Millionaire.) In 2003, climber Aron Ralston and his harrowing, nearly disastrous mishap out in the Utah wilderness. The 20-something had been hiking in Blue John Canyon when a boulder dislodged, crushing his right forearm against the canyon wall. Making matters worse, nobody knew where he was.

After five days, with his water gone and desperation his only option, you can guess what happened next. What makes the story even more unbelievable is that Ralston, once free, was still some eight miles away from his truck.

Reboot Ghost Rider! No Sequels! By: Jonathan Cyfer

Reboot Ghost Rider! No Sequels! By:  Jonathan Cyfer
Make sure you Follow Jonathan Cyfer on twitter and read his blog The Missing Man.

Nicholas Cage has made some terrific films and, at least at one point in his career, he was an engaging actor who brought a lot of edgy power to his roles. Ghost Rider (2007) was not one of his better roles or even an engaging film.

I can't really lay the whole thing at Cage's feet. The film was badly conceived, badly written, badly directed, badly...well, you get the idea. I didn't like it. And I really wanted to like it. I have kind of a thing for 1970s fiction. Too bad this film missed the mark.

I'm not a fan of "Satanic" comic books. It takes a very fine writer to blend the supernatural and superhero genres and most of the time, it doesn't play well. It also is a story that may be too rooted in its context.

The original comic book characterGhost Rider/Johnny Blaze first appeared in 1972, about the same time as the film Th…

Watch the trailer after the Jump..



Synopsis:

After 10 years in prison, Driver (Dwayne Johnson) has a singular focus – to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his imprisonment. Now a free man with a deadly to-do list in hand, he’s finally on his mission…but with two men on his trail – a veteran cop (Billy Bob Thornton) just days from retirement, and a young egocentric hitman (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) with a flair for the art of killing and a newfound worthy opponent. The hunter is also the hunted. It’s a do or die race to the list’s finish as the mystery surrounding his brother’s murder deepens, and new details emerge along the way hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete.

Get Your Tokens Out Flynn's Arcade & ElecTRONica Opens This Weekend
I shared with you information about ElecTRONica the new attraction that is coming to Disneyland California's Hollywood back lot about a month ago. Well we have some new information for the upcoming event. Beginning October 8th, 2010. It runs from Friday through Sunday this fall, and select holiday weeks from 6:00 p.m. to Park close.

Chelsea Handler "This Means War"

Chelsea Handler To Star In "This Means War"
Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler has landed a juicy role opposite Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine in This Means War, the McG-directed 20th Century Fox comedy. Handler will play the best friend and confidante of a woman (Witherspoon) who is lusted after by two best friends. The pals are CIA agents who wage an escalating war for her affection. This marks Handler's second studio role, as she just completed the Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment CG-live action film Hop, which stars Russell Brand.

The film deal comes at a time when the E! host has hit the bestseller list with her third book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, with her first two, My Horizontal Life and Vodka, It's Me, Chelsea still on the paperback lists. She just hosted the Video Music Awards and her stand-up comedy tour has sold out in 80 cities. She begins shooting This Means War later this month.

Idris Elba Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Idris Elba Talks Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth are in negotiations to join the cast of “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” Columbia’s sequel to the 2007 hit.

The movie, with Nicolas Cage back as the demonic biker anti-hero, has Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor behind the cameras. Based on the Marvel comic, the pic is set to begin shooting in late November in Romania and Turkey.

The story sees Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Ciaran Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son’s body on the kid’s birthday.

Elba plays an alcoholic warrior monk tasked with finding Ghost Rider. Whitworth plays a criminal who is recruited by the devil to find the boy and is later turned into a demonic creature.

Neveldine and Taylor also wrote the script, working off a story by David Goyer. Avi Arad, Ari Arad, Michael De Luca, Ashok Amritraj and St…

Tom Hanks Thinking About "Sleeping Dogs"

Tom Hanks Thinking About "Sleeping Dogs"
Tom Hanks may be the first actor to board Paramount’s “Sleeping Dogs,” Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to “The Hurt Locker.”

The project was previously known as “Triple Frontier” and reunites Bigelow with her “Hurt Locker” scribe Mark Boal.

The story is set in the border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, which is a haven for organized crime, and centers on five men of various ages working in the zone.

The project became a hot property in the wake of “Hurt Locker’s” Oscar wins, and since the winter months of the awards season many names have popped up in association with “Dogs,” whose title may change yet again, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Sean Penn and Jeremy Renner.

No attachments had been made as the script was being worked on and the project had no start date. But as it firms up, so does the acting component.

Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson El Presidente

Cruise and  Nicholson To Team Up Again In "El Presidente"
Here's a truth we could handle: Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson sharing the big screen again.

The two A-listers, who famously squared off in a courtroom in the 1992 blockbuster "A Few Good Men," could be teaming and going on the run in "El Presidente," late-night writer Dan Goor's action comedy about a dedicated Secret Service agent assigned to protect a bumbling and degenerate ex-president.

Warner Bros. has made an offer to Nicholson for the presidential part, while Cruise has attached himself to the project as the agent, according to several people familiar with the film. The studio could not immediately be reached for comment.

The potential pairing of these top stars, which has piqued Hollywood in recent days, is also likely to tantalize fans. In Rob Reiner's "Men," Cruise, as lieutenant judge's advocate Daniel Kaffee, defends two court-martialed Marines and famously que…

Darren Aronofsky Offered Wolverine Sequel

Darren Aronofsky Offered Wolverine Sequel
We just  learned that 20th Century Fox today entered into negotiations with Darren Aronofsky to helm the sequel to last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the director is still being offered other valuable consolation prizes by Warner Bros., like Tales From the Gangster Squad, a high-priority project that this blog told you about last week.

Back in August, Fox brass had been focusing on a handful of directors for Wolverine 2, including Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade and Red director Robert Schwentke. At the time, Fox had actually considered Aronofsky its top choice, as had its star, Hugh Jackman: The pair had collaborated on Aronofsky's ambitious 2006 movie, The Fountain, and are said to still have a close relationship today.

And despite the financial failure of Fountain, Fox bosses were impressed by Aronfsky's willingness to work frugally on smaller movies and still get big results: Aronofsky directed Mickey Rourke…

Mark Ruffalo Talks Hulk & Avengers Film

Mark Ruffalo Talks Hulk & Avengers Film
Mark Ruffalo talked to Empire recently about his new film The Kids Are All Right, and gave us a little on his role as Bruce Banner, and his big green alter-ego the Hulk, in the forthcoming Avengers movie - and possibly a few more besides.

"They set up several pictures over a couple of years and possibly there will be a Hulk movie. There'll probably be a couple more Avengers too, which would be fun."
"The way I see it, Edward Norton has bequeathed this role to me. I reckon the part is my generation's Hamlet, and there's still some room for interpreting who The Hulk is."

His views on the original 1970s show may give us a clue as to his take on the character too. "Growing up I'd rush home to watch my favourite show. You had the main character, played by Bill Bixby, and he had this calming quality to him. I watched it again recently, and it was so different from anything on TV at the time. You could really …

Tony Gilroy To Direct The Bourne Legacy

Tony Gilroy To Direct The Bourne Legacy
Universal Pictures is making a deal with Michael Clayton helmer Tony Gilroy to direct a fourth installment of The Bourne Identity. Gilroy was hired to write the script back in June. This signals that the picture -- tentatively titled The Bourne Legacy -- is on a clear forward track, though it doesn't answer the question of whether Matt Damon will return to reprise his signature character of the amnesiac assassin/agent Jason Bourne. Damon last indicated that he wouldn't come back unless director Paul Greengrass helmed what would have been his third installment, after Greengrass exited the picture in a huff when the studio began developing it while Greengrass and Damon were making Universal's Green Zone. I'm told that Universal plans to make the film, even if it has to replace Damon, who'd be crazy to give up his franchise character and a huge paycheck if the script is any good.

There is every reason to think it will be, since …
