Report: Matt Reeves’ ‘Batman’ Movie Won’t Star Ben Affleck

2 hours ago

Seriously, I do not know what to make of the DC Films and Warner Bros. strategy. Grab a pen and paper. Ok, the world of “Batman V Superman,” “Wonder Woman” and “Suicide Squad”? That’s one timeline and one extended universe (the Dceu). But there are two films apparently coming that are going to live outside of the extended universe. One of them is a Joker origin story that won’t star Jared Leto (something gritty, like an early Martin Scorsese film) and the other is Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” film which was revealed to be a stand-alone movie that also exists outside of the current continuity.

A Joker & Harley Quinn Movie Is Coming From The ‘Crazy.Stupid.Love’ Directors

3 hours ago

What.is.going.on over at DC Films and Warner Bros? The film industry is suffering from whiplash in the last 24 hours thanks to schizophrenic news coming out of Warner Bros.’ Dceu. First up, you’ve got a spin-off origin Joker film announced last night coming from producer Martin Scorsese and director Todd Phillips, and it was meant to live outside of the current DC Films continuity; yes, this would be a new Joker not played by Jared Leto but possibly someone much younger.

Martin Lawrence Doesn’t Think ‘Bad Boys For Life’ Will Happen

8 hours ago

For years, Sony has been trying to crack the nut on “Bad Boys 3.” The math was pretty simple — add up Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as wise-cracking cops, and you’ll probably have another hit. However, getting a script, and aligning schedules, and just getting everyone on board proved difficult. However, in recent years, things looked promising, with the studio throwing some release dates on the calendar, and even talking about a potential “Bad Boys 4.” Well, at least one of the film’s co-stars isn’t holding his breath for this to happen.

‘Bushwick’ Is Pure, Overwhelmingly Grim Provocation [Review]

9 hours ago

Ever get the feeling that the movie you’re watching is sentient, ill-tempered, and perfectly happy to kick your legs out from underneath you at the worst possible moment for maximum cruelty? That’s “Bushwick,” a slick, swaggering gallimaufry of alt-history war-cum-propaganda movie a’la “Red Dawn,” oriented on a sudden and violent invasion of New York (yes, that Bushwick) by unknown, ad libbed, but altogether well-organized military force.

Noomi Rapace Talks ‘What Happened To Monday?’ & Embracing Working With Netflix

10 hours ago

Swedish-born Noomi Rapace has been slowly but surely building up a career in American movies and making a real mark in the industry. Her facial gestures and looks can sometimes be filled up with an innumerable amount of emotions, and her physical prowess — she’s no slouch in the muscle department — builds considerable screen presence in itself. Lately, the 36-year-old actress has been working with genre fare, starring as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott’s “Alien” prequel “Prometheus,” leading the horror flick “Rupture,” and featured in the upcoming Netflix blockbuster “Bright.”

Her latest performance might be her most ambitious yet.

James Gunn Says ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy 3’ Will Set Up The Next 20 Years Of The McU

10 hours ago

We all really want to know what’s Marvel‘s plan, post-Phase 3. There is so much demand from fans for answers about what’s next in the McU fans that Marvel head Kevin Feige has had to address the swirling rumors a few times already by stating that there is no plan at the moment to unveil a new phase. However, I’m betting that once we catch “Avengers: Infinity War” next year ,answers will come pouring in and things will become a little more clearer.

Matt Reeves Says ‘The Batman’ Is “A Standalone, It’s Not Part Of The Extended Universe”

10 hours ago

While Film Twitter remains shaken up about Warner Bros. and DC Films‘ plan to make a Joker origin story movie, that will just be one of a string of spinoff that won’t connect to the mainline cinematic universe, it seems this plan has been in the works for a while now. Director Matt Reeves, in an interview from last month on Kcrw that’s only making the rounds now, reveals that his upcoming “The Batman” won’t be cinematically canon either (or whatever).

Rumor: Han Solo Spinoff Title Leaked

11 hours ago

We’re still reeling a bit from Michael K. Williams being snipped out of the upcoming Han Solo spinoff movie, but the good news is that perhaps we’ll no longer have to call it “the upcoming Han Solo spinoff movie.”

Even though the picture is than a year away from release, Lucasfilm has yet give the presumed blockbuster an official moniker. And while weren’t expecting anything too colorful like “Han Solo & Chewie — Space Buds Forever,” if this marketing material (via JoBlo) is anything to go by, the final name will quite anti-climatic when it’s formally announced:

Han Solo movie title revealed by toy production materials (cc.

Rumor: Jesse Eisenberg Cut From ‘Justice League’

11 hours ago

In the latest of series of fires that Warner Bros. and DC Films can’t seem to extinguish completely, Joss Whedon‘s reputation took a major hit this week, with revelations about his personal conduct with his ex-wife. I’m not going to get into that here, but needless to say, it’s another issue for WB/DC to workout as Whedon has been pegged to be the new Zack Snyder of sorts for the cinematic universe of films.

First Look: Netflix Western ‘Godless,’ Directed By Scott Frank, Executive Produced By Steven Soderbergh

12 hours ago

Believe it or not, Netflix has never released their own limited series. Well, that changes this fall with “Godless,” a project we’ve been highly anticipating forever, and that we’re very glad is finally seeing the light of day.

Written and directed by celebrated screenwriter Scott Frank (“Out Of Sight,” “Minority Report,” “The Lookout”), “Godless” has been kicking around forever, and started as a movie script that was so tantalizing that both Steven Soderbergh and David Fincher considered making it.

‘The Racer And The Jailbird’ Trailer: Adèle Exarchopoulos & Matthias Schoenaerts Explore Romance & Racing

12 hours ago

After delivering the knockout “Bullhead,” writer/director Michael R. Roskam could do whatever he wanted, and we’d be there. So we followed him to “The Drop,” and were rewarded with an entire film with Tom Hardy and a puppy (it was pretty good too). Now, the filmmaker is reteaming with Matthias Schoenaerts for “The Racer And The Jailbird,” and we’re pretty much sold already.

13 hours ago

While there have been plenty of movies about soldiers returning home from war and adjusting to civilian life, few have been told from a female perspective. However, “Blood Stripe” offers an intriguing break from the usual, and today we have the exclusive trailer for the film.

Co-written and directed by Remy Auberjonois, and starring Kate Nowlin (who also co-wrote the film), Tom Lipinski, Chris Sullivan, Rusty Schwimmer, Ashlie AtkinsonKen Marks, and Rene Auberjonois, the story follows a woman who returns from three tours in Afghanistan.

DC Films Launching Off-Continuity Superhero Spinoff Movies

14 hours ago

To be honest, I can’t work up the energy to care enough to be outraged or surprised or concerned about whatever DC Films randomly decides to do next. Most recently, it’s hiring Todd Phillips (“The Hangover,” “Old School“) to direct a Joker origin story movie, divorced from the Dceu, and produced by Martin Scorsese. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ At any rate, the reaction to the news was swift, and members of The Playlist team have also already shared their early thoughts on a new podcast.

‘Stranger Things’: Duffer Brothers On Inspiration, Season 2, And Knowing When It Will All End [Interview]

14 hours ago

When I sat down with Matt and Ross Duffer (collectively known as the Duffer Brothers) last month they were pretty calm, cool and collected for two guys whose first series, “Stranger Things,” had become a cultural phenomenon and earned a tantalizing 18 Emmy nominations after the debut of its first season. To clarify, they certainly were not cocky or overconfident, but considering the looming deadline to submit nine episodes of the second season to Netflix they certainly were not as stressed as you or I would probably be.

Doug Liman Says ‘Edge of Tomorow’ Sequel Couldn’t Have Happened Without Fans

15 hours ago

You might have missed the exhilarating work director Doug Liman, and his stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, gave us in the summer of 2014 with “Edge of Tomorrow.” The film only earned $90 million at the box-office, and while you might have dismissed the film as a sci-fi “Groundhog Day,” you weren’t exactly wrong. However, Liman’s film was more than just a gimmick.

Ok, this is the strangest news we’ve encountered in months. Martin Scorsese along with “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips, Warner Bros. and DC Films are going to make a Joker origin movie and spin-off film. No, ahem… joke.

‘Tulip Fever’ Is A Movie That Actually Exists: Here’s The Nsfw Trailer Proof

22 August 2017 1:44 PM, PDT

Tulip Fever” has become something of a running joke, much to the misfortune of The Weinstein Company. The distributor has kicked back and delayed the release of the period drama so often that one wonders if the film actually exists. Well, apparently it does, and will finally be opening in cinemas next week. However, TWC seems to be aware that everyone is ready to have the rug pulled out from them, so they’re convincing potential audiences to buy a ticket the only way they know how — with boobs.

Michael Almereyda Talks ‘Marjorie Prime,’ Artificial Intelligence & The Film’s Unsettling Premise

22 August 2017 1:21 PM, PDT

Michael Almereyda‘s “Marjorie Prime” is a powerful story, set in the near future, where humanity has created artificial-intelligence that serves a very specific purpose. 86-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith) has a new partner in her life who, oddly enough, looks like a younger version of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm), and it doesn’t take long to realize that he’s A.I. programmed to spend time with her, and reflect back the story of her life.

‘The Third Murder’ Trailer: Hirokazu Kore-eda Goes Off Brand For Legal Drama

22 August 2017 1:01 PM, PDT

Hirokazu Kore-eda is known for a gentler kind of cinema, telling deeply human and intimate stories in pictures like “Nobody Knows,” “Hana,” “Still Walking,” “Like Father, Like Son” and “After The Storm.” However, the director is switching gears considerably and tackling the kind of movie we’d never expect from the patient, quiet filmmaker: a legal drama.
