Composer Hans Zimmer “Retires” From Superhero Movies

Composer Hans Zimmer “Retires” From Superhero Movies
Composer Hans Zimmer has a major element in the success of some of DC’s biggest box office hits of recent years (plus one flirtation with Marvel for The Amazing Spider-Man 2) but it looks like superheroes won’t be able to call on his services in the future. Zimmer has told the BBC that he is retiring from doing superhero movies after struggling to find a way do something new with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, on which he worked alongside...

Dance Your Cares Away: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Starring in a Fraggle Rock Movie
Music is set to be playing down in Fraggle Rock once again in a new feature film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Variety has revealed. The movie is being developed by New Regency, with Gordon-Levitt also serving as its producer. First broadcast in 1983, Fraggle Rock was created by Jim Henson and produced by HBO, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Henson Associates and UK company Television South. The original series ran for five seasons, with some...

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard to Star in Macbeth Movie
A new See Saw Films adaptation of Macbeth is due to start filming in the UK early next year, with Snowtown director Justin Kurzel at the helm. The title role will be taken on by Michael Fassbender, whose proven range and intensity as a performer render him an exciting choice for the part. Fassbender is of course no stranger to literary adaptations, having starred as Mr Rochester in 2011’s Jane Eyre film. Natalie Portman was originally... 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving. Thrown back into resurgence after the well-received (500) Days of Summer, he has since been part of many a lucrative hit. Since the 2009 anti-rom-com, Gordon-Levitt has been in films such as Inception, 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper and Lincoln. To star in those five movies alone is unprecedented, and yet JGL is one of Hollywood’s hottest current commodities. More recently... 

Killing Them Softly Review – Is Brad bad?

Killing Them Softly Review – Is Brad bad?
Directed by Andrew Dominik Starring Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Ben Mendelsohn and Scoot McNairy Is Brad bad? The answer is YES, but in a good way. Brad Pitt plays the scary hit man Jackie Cogan in Andrew Dominik’s dark crime comedy Killing Them Softly. Pitt is excellent and despite his reputation as a heartthrob, his portrayal of Cogan clearly demonstrates his versatility as an actor. In the same vein as Javier Bardam... 

Lawless Review. Lawless or Pointless?

Lawless Review. Lawless or Pointless?
Directed by John Hillcoat Starring, Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce With the huge success of Sky Atlantic’s Boardwalk Empire, a show about the 1920’s prohibition in the USA and bootlegged booze, it was inevitable that Hollywood would cash in on the prohibition era. Lawless tells the story of the Bondurant brothers, played by Shia LaBeouf, Jason Clarke and the excellent Tom Hardy, following on from his powerhouse... 

The Colorado shooting and its effect on The Dark Knight Rises

The Colorado shooting and its effect on The Dark Knight Rises
By now I’m sure everyone will have heard about the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. A lone gunman by the name of James Holmes opened fire at a Century 16 Movie Theater, randomly shooting 70 people, 12 of whom were killed. Thoughts and prayers are no doubt with the victims and their families. That this took place during a midnight screening of Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight Rises has unfortunately cast a shadow on the film. As noted by Devin Faraci... 

What happens when Christopher Nolan fans read negative Dark Knight Rises reviews

What happens when Christopher Nolan fans read negative Dark Knight Rises reviews
The Dark Knight Rises has had the kind of anticipation that’s probably akin to the coming of Christ. So should anyone happen to say something unfavourable about the film, they will end up having to endure the wrath from irate Christopher Nolan fans. Nolan’s latest blockbuster did have a fresh rating of 100% on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, but then the first negative review came in from Marshall Fine of Hollywood and Fine. Here... 

The Dark Knight Rises Review

The Dark Knight Rises Review
I know this is a big claim, but I think that The Avengers has just been knocked off the top spot for superhero movies. Sure it may not gross as high and the film may not have the mass appeal that the family friendly action blockbuster had, but The Dark Knight Rises fills a very different and equally important role in the landscape of superhero films. Let me start of by saying that The Dark Knight Rises is less of a Batman film, and more of a Bruce... 

The Avengers Assembles Opening Weekend Record at US Box Office!

The Avengers Assembles Opening Weekend Record at US Box Office!
Joss Whedon’s The Avengers has proven to be a fantastic start to the summer movie season, making US box office history by scoring the highest opening weekend EVER! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 broke the record back in July 2011 when it earned $169 million, but it could barely hold on to it for more than a year. This past weekend saw Potter’s wand smashed by Thor’s hammer after Marvel Studios’ The Avengers completely obliterated...
