American Ultra trailer

Jesse Eisenberg is just about the last guy you’d expect to emerge as a lethal agent. It’s easier to buy him as a supervillain, even. But that’s exactly the point of his latest movie, American Ultra.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Max Landis, the action-comedy stars Eisenberg as an aimless stoner who’s secretly a highly trained operative. So secretly, in fact, that even he has no idea. Kristen Stewart plays his girlfriend. Watch the latest American Ultra trailer after the jump. Read More »

Robert Rodriguez hosted two panels for the Television Critics Awards today on behalf of his El Rey Network, speaking about his interview series The Director’s Chair and season two of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. He even showed a clip of his chat with Michael Mann about Heat. After the panel, Rodriguez stayed to answer follow-up questions, so I asked him about his plans for the live-action Jonny Quest.

LEGO Dimensions trailer

If you’re a frequent reader of SlashFilm, you know that we love LEGO, and we love even more when the building block toy gets blended with our favorite films. Whether it’s an official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set or a custom Jurassic Park visitor center, we like seeing the building blocks come together to make things from the movies we love.

Therefore, our interest is piqued by the forthcoming video game LEGO Dimensions, a new collectible figure video game which combines the likes of Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Batman (and other DC Comics heroes), The LEGO Movie, Ninjago and even The Wizard of Oz.

And now a new trailer has arrived online, showing the story behind how all these different franchises came to be mixed up with each other. But the real highlight is seeing Batman fight another Batman. Watch the LEGO Dimensions trailer after the jump! Read More »

DJ Cotrona Superman

Today I had an interview with D.J. Cotrona for the second season of El Rey Network’s From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. Cotrona plays Seth Gecko of the infamous Gecko Brothers in the series, but if things had gone differently he might have inherited the mantle of one of the most popular comic book and screen characters several years ago.

In 2007/2008, Cotrona was slated to play Clark Kent and Superman in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. In addition to a DJ Cotrona Superman, the film would have featured Armie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord.

Ultimately, the film fell victim to the 2008 WGA strike. I asked him to share what he remembered of that film’s development and what it could have been, and Cotrona was happy to oblige. Read More »

Jena Malone in Batman v Superman

Last fall, a rumor surfaced that Robin would be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in a way unlike any version of the Dark Knight’s sidekick we’ve seen on screen before. This incarnation of the character was rumored to be female. And there were even rumblings that Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was playing the character.

However, we’ve since seen that Robin is likely dead in Batman v. Superman, seemingly killed by The Joker in a quick shot glimpsed in the most recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con. The suit the sidekick wore doesn’t look to belong to a female with the physique of Jena Malone, and is likely a young man played by the director’s son Eli Snyder.

So if Jena Malone isn’t playing Robin, then just who is her character? We may finally have an answer. Find out more about Jena Malone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »

Battling Boy Movie

It makes sense that the first movie based on a comic by Paul Pope would be his entertaining and relatively accessible Battling Boy, rather than something more strange and complex like his Mars epic THB or the set of future-Manhattan stories from 100%. A boy hero, even a boy hero who is a demigod who fights with magic t-shirts, is the sort of character who makes for a slightly easier movie marketing pitch.

Still, Plan B and Paramount have been working on a Battling Boy movie for years, since long before the book was even published. But now a director has been hired, and it’s a choice that will probably generate some great interest for the Battling Boy movie: the person in question is Patrick Osborne, who directed the short Feast for Disney.
