So is Shazam part of the DC Movie Universe, or not? We originally thought it might be, but the film is from New Line rather than Warner Bros. proper, and comments from New Line head Toby Emmerich have suggested Shazam might be off on its own. But now a new post from DC has led people to thinking that the character Shazam is part of the same universe that also features Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman — which naturally has us wondering if he’ll fit into the big Justice League story after all. So, first off, is the big question: Is Shazam in the DC Movie Universe as an active group participant, or not? Read More »
Since the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, I’ve been saying that once Peter Jackson‘s Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy is released some fan will edit together an awesome epic three hour movie using all the footage. Well with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies gearing up for release, we are already beginning to see what this might look like.
Los Angeles-based editor Joel Walden has edited together a trailer for what he calls The Hobbit: The Complete Journey, which yes combines footage from all three films into one epic film. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

It took Zach Braff ten years to get from his first directing effort to his second, and even then he had to turn to Kickstarter for funding. But it looks like he won’t be waiting quite so long to make his third. And he won’t need crowdfunding to get this one going, either.
Braff has entered talks with New line to direct Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 caper starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Hit the jump for more details on the Zach Braff Going in Style remake. Read More »
Dwayne Johnson recently tweeted a photo of him reading the script for his next movie. He described it as a “big action comedy” and said his co-star would soon be revealed. That’s now happened. It’s none other than Kevin Hart, the current go-to second lead in big comedies (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Get Hard, The Wedding Ringer). They’ll co-star in a buddy action comedy called Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers). Read More »
Here’s the final trailer for Peter Jackson‘s final Middle-Earth film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. We find Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) in control of his goal, the Lonely Mountain, and facing problems that might be even greater than the dragon Smaug. Specifically, forces from the re-awakened Sauron are tramping towards the Mountain, and Thorin and Bilbo (Martin Freeman) find themselves at the focal point of a titanic battle. Check out the final Hobbit trailer below.

We’ve all slept through in-flight safety videos dozens (if not hundreds) of times. But most don’t have Elijah Wood, Peter Jackson, and other Hobbit cast members. Few feature the scenery of Middle-Earth, and effects that would make a micro-budget film weep. In fact, only one other video does: the last in-flight safety video from Air New Zealand. Now the company has a new video, dubbed “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” Watch this new Hobbit in-flight video below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re pretty familiar with the sight of good actors jumping and rolling about in mo-cap suits while doing performance capture work for effects-based films. We’re especially familiar with that image when it comes to Peter Jackson‘s Middle-Earth movies. And yet there’s something special about seeing Benedict Cumberbatch, whose on-screen presence radiates control and composure, crawling on his belly and fire-breathing dialogue for the worm Smaug in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. A few short featurettes about the creation of the dragon, and the Smaug mo-cap work, have gone online. They’re probably more fun than at least half the other stuff you could be watching. Check out a few below. Read More »
