Aaron Sorkin Has Meetings With Both DC And Marvel

10 hours ago

Aaron Sorkin has written some pretty incredible films including A Few Good Men and The Social Network, in addition to being one of the only show-runners to write nearly every episode of his creation, The West Wing. Among his numerous other awards, Sorkin won an Oscar for writing The Social Network, and was nominated for a second for Moneyball. Now his attention may be turning to the most lucrative genre of all... superhero flicks.

ComicBook.com caught Sorkin at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, and he revealed he has meetings with both DC and Marvel to possibly write a film for either of their Cinematic Universes:

“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel. I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them, it »

For Good Reason Romantic Scene Gets Cut From Power Rangers Film

10 hours ago

Although coming in second to Beauty and the Beast, Saban's Power Rangers had a successful opening weekend. For the most part audiences around the globe were satisfied with the film. With that being said our attention now shifts to future films as well as scenes that didn't make the final cut. We have already talked about the possibility of a series of films as well as the inclusion of the Green Ranger. Now some interesting information has surfaced regarding a scene that was cut from the film that we saw in one of the trailers.

A Taste Of What To Expect In Westworld Season 2

10 hours ago

Westworld is the latest, great HBO show, as well as one of the most talked about shows of 2016 (perhaps behind only Stranger Things). It masterfully blended the science fiction and western genre into a creepy and very entertaining little package, completely shaking up the formula and leaving the original film it is based on in the dust. Mysteries abound, the show featured some incredible writing and acting, with Ed Harris and Anthony Hopkins both at the top of their game. Have you watched it yet? If not, let me be the most recent person to pester into watching it. It really is that good. If you haven't watched it, there be Spoilers ahead!

Unfortunately, the wait for Season 2 will be a long one; we aren't getting more Westworld until 2018. That hasn't stopped co-creators/show-runners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan from offering us a taste of what to expect in the second season! »

Patrick Wilson Teases The Arrival Of Ocean Master

11 hours ago

The last week has been filled with Justice League images, character teaser trailers and finally a full trailer. With that we have learned that the League will in fact have their hands full with parademons and mother boxes. Also that although we know that Superman will have an impact in the film, we still don't know how soon or late he will come back to life. We saw a lot of focus on Cyborg and Aquaman who no doubt had some of the best moments overall. With a lot of the focus on the King of Atlantis, a certain actor playing a relative of his made his presence known on Twitter. 

The Hollywood Reporter posted a video of the Justice League trailer yesterday with the question "Why are bad guys in superhero team-up movies always faceless drones?". To everyone's surprise one of the responses came from Patrick Wilson who responded »

Fate Of The Furious: New Video Teases The Film As A New Start For The Franchise

13 hours ago

The Fast & Furious franchise is one that perhaps doesn’t give enough credit for how much it’s evolved since the first film. This was one that started off taking itself way too damn seriously. Sure, for those into the idea of street racing, it may have been pretty cool, but its appeal was ultimately a bit limited. It wasn’t until the fourth film in the franchise, Fast and Furious, that things finally got kicked up a notch.

Since that film, each successive movie has raised the bar a little bit more, with the action growing more ridiculous and over-the-top as time goes on. At this point, the gang has effectively become a superhero spy group that carries out missions, and let’s face it, they’d be able to do that into perpetuity if they really wanted. 

However, things changed a bit when the first trailer was revealed, »

Justice League: Snyder On How Aquaman, Flash, & Cyborg Add To The Film, Plus Life Without Superman

14 hours ago

It's safe to say that the most recent two DC Extended Universe movies (Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad) have been panned to death by both fans and critics alike, leaving many people eager to see if WB can fix the beloved universe. Some think that ship has already sailed, while others (myself included) are a bit more cautiously optimistic. 

Nonetheless, despite a shaky development process, WB seems to be intent on moving forward, as they have a half dozen films slated for the big screen over the next few years. 

One of the people at the center of all this controversy is, of course, Zack Snyder, director of the first two Dceu films.. Though he has certainly been the lightning rod of hate for fans, the director is hoping to finally give fans what they want with his next film due out this November: Justice League. It's pretty much do or die at this stage. »

HBO’s Vice Principals: Georgia King Talks Expanded Role And Fun Times On Set

15 hours ago

It’s currently on of the funniest shows on HBO.

Vice Principals season one is currently available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download today.

The show’s premise is about two competing vice principals of a high school, who are vying for the top job as principal. Then the school district hired an outsider for the top job—leading the two vice principals to develop crazy plans to rid of her from the school.

The nine episodes are some of the most creative laugh-out-loud comedy you’ll ever experience.

The show stars Danny McBride, Walton Goggins, Kimberly Hebert Gregory and Georgia King.

Lrm had an exclusive phone interview late last month with Georgia King to talk about the first season of the show Vice Principals. She discussed the evolution of her character on the show and working with a hilarious cast.

Pirates: New Video Behind-The-Scenes Confirms Will Turner’s Son

15 hours ago

Pirates of the Caribbean is quite the interesting little franchise. It had its start with Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley right at its center. However, when Disney realized the main draw of it was Johnny Depp’s drunken interpretation of the now iconic Jack Sparrow. The fourth film saw both characters Will Turner and Elizabeth completely gone from the franchise in favor of Jack, and it was worse for wear.

After the franchise’s long hiatus, there were always rumors that Orlando Bloom would reprise his role as Will Turner, and even stronger rumors that the upcoming film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, would follow his son. Recent trailers show some guy running around who seems an awful lot like Will Turner-lite, but there was never really a confirmation for us to see, and if you looked at IMDb, you’d see that his character was simply listed as Henry. »

Valerian: Luc Besson Already Writing The Script For A Sequel

16 hours ago

Very rarely does it seem like Hollywood is content with sticking the landing for an ambitious, big budget film and simply walking away. If a film catches on and a sequel isn’t being made, there’s a whole lot of money being left on the table. As such, regardless of whether or not we know if a film will ultimately be successful, filmmakers are often already doing prep work on potential sequels. For studios, it’s another means to make money, but for creatives, it’s an opportunity to delve deeper into a fun world they’ve created.

Filmmaker Luc Besson is someone who has had a chance to create numerous stylized and fun worlds, and the latest of them comes in the form of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Already a teaser has hit the web, and there’s a full trailer on the way. »

Stephen King’s It Trailer Teaser & Poster: ‘We All Float Down Here’

18 hours ago

It’s been a long and winding road for the production of Stephen King’s It. It seems like there never was a time when this flick wasn't in development. In the time since, a lot has changed. The project has cycled through a filmmakers, but when all said and done, I think it’s settled on a good place. The images shown so far have been full of promise, but it’s impossible to gauge a film’s style and tone using photos alone.

We’ve been eagerly following the progress on this project, and despite some of the disappointing updates in recent years (especially the departure of Cary Fukunaga as director), we think we may have a veritable classic on our hands. Now we’re one step closer to seeing this become a reality. »

Luc Besson's Valerian & The City of A Thousand Planets: Description Of The New 3D Trailer

19 hours ago

French filmmaker Luc Besson has earned quite a reputation as one of the more influential action directors out there, but he also has played frequently in the realm of science-fiction, most memorably with his 1997 movie, The Fifth Element.  

Conveniently, the 20th anniversary of that film has Besson returning to a similar space opera with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, this time adapting Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières’ French graphic novel that had a big influence and impact on his earlier film. According to Besson, the movie is mostly adapted from the 1975 graphic album The Ambassador of Shadows, but that’s only one of 22 graphic novels starring Valerian and his partner Laureline.

For Besson’s movie, Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) while Laureline is played by Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad).

Earlier this week, Lrm had a chance to get an early glimpse at »

Tom Holland & Jon Watts Defend Spider-Man: Homecoming As Something New And Different

19 hours ago

Is Spider-Man stuck in a creative rut, or is Sony just afraid to take risks with the character? After watching the latest official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, I was struck by how similar it felt, not just other Spider-Man movies, but rather how it seemed so paint-by-numbers (if you're old enough to remember when that was a thing). The reason many fans have responded to Deadpool and Logan, aside from the freedom of their R-ratings, is how different these films were from other superhero movies. Deadpool told a non-linear story of anti-hero dying from cancer while Logan tells a linear story of an anti-hero dying of Adamantium poisoning... Uh. 

Wait. Rewind. What point was I trying to make?  

Look, we all know that superhero films follow a clichéd formula: get powers, lament powers, make a big mistake, take a beating from the big bad, and then even the score in a climactic boss fight. »

The Avengers Trailer Recut Like Justice League Trailer

20 hours ago

The internet is a beautiful thing. Thanks to advancements in technology, folks with a simple laptop can come up with some crazy talented work, such as this trailer a fan cut to make The Avengers from 2012 resemble the new Justice League trailer. 

The work on the trailer was outstanding. It was seamless and really came across like an actual, professional movie trailer. It also showed what I felt was the big problem with the Justice League trailer. The trailer itself told no story. What do I mean? Watch the original trailer from The Avengers.

While it doesn't tell the whole story of the film like some trailers are guilty of, the trailer itself tells it's own little story showcasing the disfunction the group had as well as the difficulties they had working together. Compare that to the Justice League trailer. Justice League has some great action segments as well as »

Could The Black Cat & Silver Sable Movie Be Shooting Sooner Than We Thought?

21 hours ago

Sony looks to be at it again. If you’ll recall, a few years back, they were looking to ignore the Marvel Cinematic Universe altogether and create their own universe off of The Amazing Spider-Man films, which saw Andrew Garfield in the lead role. While the first film in the franchise was solid enough, the second one kind of sent it off into the deep end. In an attempt to set things up for a Sinister Six spinoff, the film became too overloaded with villains to remain focused. The result? The movie didn’t live up to their expectations, the universe was canceled, and Spider-Man joined the Avengers in the McU.

Wilson Director Craig Johnson On Making Daniel Clowes’ Offbeat Film With Woody Harrelson

22 hours ago

Daniel ClowesWilson is now playing in theaters across the country and hopefully, those who’ve had a chance to see it still have some questions about how the filmmakers and cast captured the tone of Clowes’ graphic novel so well. (It didn’t hurt that Clowes adapted it into a movie himself.)

It is director Craig Johnson’s third film, following 2009’s True Adolescents and 2014’s The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, which won a screenplay at Sundance that year.

In the movie, Woody Harrelson plays the title character, a cantankerous and unfiltered loner who tries hard to be social but ends up putting those he interacts with off. When he tries to reconnect with his ex-wife Pippy (Laura Dern), he finds out that he had a baby daughter she gave up for adoption. The two of them go look for their now teen daughter Claire »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #2 - Peter Parker Screws Up Royally

23 hours ago

For some time, audiences were suffering from massive Spider-Man fatigue. Even before Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man hit theaters, audiences weren’t too thrilled to see another interpretation of the character hit the big screen so soon after Spider-Man 3. In the eyes of many, the character had run his course, and there was little more that could be accomplished in another series of film.

Of course, that all changed when the webslinger made his way into Captain America: Civil War. Taking advantage of the overly-ambitious and eager-to-please nature of high schoolers, Marvel Studios and Sony managed to give us plenty of memorable moments for Peter Parker, thereby rejuvenating enthusiasm for the character. Surprisingly enough, audiences can’t seem to wait for him to hit the big screen again.

Sony Pictures Motion Group Chairman Tom Rothman is very excited to reveal Blade Runner 2049 to the audiences of CinemaCon 2017 this week.

He reminisced his days when he first watched the original Blade Runner back in June 25, 1982. He loved being transported in the world created by Ridley Scott and starred Harrison Ford. He described the original film “cool as sh!#.”

With Blade Runner 2049 on the horizon, Rothman introduced Ryan Gosling on to the stage. He even described on visiting the set, in which Gosling had thousands of gallons of water dumped on him for take after take.
