A new theory has been floated that helps explain WHY Schumacher’s Batman movies are so different than any other Dark Knight story… and it’s worth exploring.
It’s rare that the women in the Batman movies got to do much beyond “be rescued” or “die horribly to anger our hero.” Yes, Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway donned the Catwoman suit for alternate Batman films from Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan. But those are the exceptions that prove the rule carried out by the likes of Katie Holmes, Maggie Gyllenhaal or Kim Basinger.
First up is Joss Whedon, who knows a thing or two about superheroes having directed the most successful comic book movie of all time. I have a feeling Whedon’s opinion is powerful enough to get at least 5% of people flipping their opinions on Affleck’s involvement. Geek culture can be pretty fickle at times.
Regardless of whether it’s a “good” or a “bad” choice, casting Affleck was definitely an interesting choice, as were each of those chosen to take the role before him. Let’s take a look back at those previous actors that donned the cowl, and how the role figured into their careers.
Terrence Malick movies aren't generally associated with chainsaw-wielding maniacs, or intense violence of any kind really, which is why we're trying and failing to make sense of the new photo from the set of his upcoming movie. With the Fun Fun Fun Fest happening in Austin, Texas, Malick and his actors are on hand to shoot scenes on and around the concert stages
As proven by the popularity of the Harry Potter and Twilight series, a proven recipe for success is just to start with a popular young adult novel and work from there. Well, DJ Caruso is cooking up something from exactly that, a novel called The Goats. Caruso’s last project, I Am Number Four, took the same approach and it seems the Disturbia director is looking to continue being a part of this trend
Coppola plans to present TWIXT as a live performance, where he’ll edit the movie while people watch, changing what you’ll see depending on how each audience is responding to it. In theory, that means you’ll never see the same movie twice. In practice… well who the heck knows how this will play out. The new TWIXT trailer itself offers very few clues.
Val Kilmer and Ving Rhames have agreed to star in the indie thriller Seven Below for director Kevin Carraway. The two actors will be joined by Luke Goss and Rebecca De Costa, the trade adds, though given the numerical nature of the title, I’m wondering if three more actors will be cast before the production gets underway.
Production is already under way under director Mike Feifer, which makes it even more logical that Kilmer will merely be providing voiceover and scenes of the older Earp. So which of these actors will be the actual star of the film?
There’ve been rumors, for almost as long as I can remember, about how difficult Val Kilmer is to work with. It’s hard not to believe them, when you look at his filmography
Kill the Irishman stars Ray Stevenson as a mob enforcer who goes rogue. Christopher Walken and Val Kilmer are involved somehow too, though even after watching the movie’s first trailer I’m not entirely sure how
The film’s based on the true story of a 1976 turf war in Cleveland between an Irish mobster and the Italian Mafia. Ray Stevenson stars in the story of Danny Green, a mob enforcer who stops taking orders from the mafia
This past weekend, for the first time since 2005, Robert Downey Jr. and Michelle Monaghan starred in the same movie: Due Date. Of course, that 2005 film was Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the criminally
When you're the director of The Godfather movies and Apocalypse Now, it's not exactly easy to start making a film secretly, but that's exactly what Francis Ford Coppola has been doing. According
My review of MacGruber at SXSW in March was decidedly mixed and I think these new clips do a pretty good job of illustrating what was wrong. The thing is, none of the scenes you’re about to see
When it comes to MacGruber my opinion on the film seems to be at the low end of the early reaction spectrum and even I had fun with it. Sure it’s full of easy scatological jokes, but at least they’re really funny
With the recent downfall of the record industry, it’s necessary for musicians to become brands in place of just playing music. You can’t only be the dude who plays a guitar; you have to own a clothing brand as well
Will Forte will of course, play MacGruber and Kristen Wiig is still involved as his helpful assistant. But guess who they’re bringing in to play the villain? Val Kilmer. No really. Also in negotiations to join the cast, Ryan Phillipe
