Though Clint Eastwood is one of our finest and most prolific directors, his decision to adapt a Tony award-winning, worldwide smash hit musical always felt odd. A macho, old-school actor/filmmaker making an upbeat rags-to-riches movie filled with popular songs? Not the obvious move. Well, the first Jersey Boys trailer is finally out and things now seem much clearer.
In this short look at the film, which opens June 20, we finally get an idea of Eastwood’s version of the musical version of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the group that went from the street corners of New Jersey to one of the biggest musical acts in history. Check out the Jersey Boys trailer below. Read More »

In his directorial debut, Christopher Nolan‘s longtime DP Wally Pfister serves up a dire warning about all the things that can go wrong when someone other than Christopher Nolan tries to make a Christopher Nolan movie. Transcendence is Inception, in spirit if not in plot, only without the heart, style, intelligence, or grace.

Directing a massive superhero film has lots of privileges. Money? Sure. Fame? Of course. But also the ability to geek out and see things before anyone else in the world. In a new interview, Zack Snyder – the director of Man of Steel and 2016′s Batman vs. Superman – admits he doesn’t know when fans will get to see the new Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes. But he has a huge of them photo up in his office, geeks out over it daily, and really wants to upload it. He just knows he can’t.
He also talks about the first moment Batman was mentioned as a possible foil for Superman in the sequel, what it will be like when they finally show down, the “rivalry” with Marvel Studios and, oddly, Slashfilm. Read the quotes below. Read More »

Chloë Grace Moretz is no stranger to (onscreen) life-or-death situations. She’s played a superhero, a vampire, and a telekinetic outsider with a furious grudge. But she’s never been in one quite like this.
Directed by R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) and based on the novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay stars Moretz as a bright, talented teen who falls into a coma after a car accident kills the rest of her family. She’s faced with a choice — wake up an orphan and get about the hard work of moving on, or let go and die with her loved ones. Jamie Blackley plays her punk rock boyfriend, who may just give her something to live for.

He also said all of the cast members — including Matthew McConaughey – are expected to return, even though deals haven’t been set. Read his quotes and more below. Read More »
Hans Zimmer provided the emotional sound of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, and he he helped build the soul of Zack Snyder’s new Superman, too, for Man of Steel. But Zimmer has been reluctant to commit to the Batman vs. Superman film that acts as sequel to Man of Steel, because it will bridge his own Superman, and a new version of Batman. It’s a strange spot to be in for a composer. Yet it seems that whatever reservations the composer had are now slipping away, as he says in a recent interview that he’s going to work on ideas for Batman vs. Superman. Read More »
We haven’t even hit the summer of 2014 and the summer of 2016 is beginning to fill up. We know there will be two Marvel movies (one of which is Captain America 3), Batman vs. Superman, X-Men Apocalypse, The Amazing Spider-Man 3, Finding Dory, Independence Day 2 and now Guy Ritchie is getting in the fun with what could be the start of a whole new franchise.
Warner Bros. has just dated Ritchie’s 3D King Arthur film for July 22, 2016. Joby Harold (2007?s Awake) wrote the script, which is tentatively planned to be the first in a six film series. No casting has been made official yet but Ritchie has been attached for several years.
The Guy Ritchie King Arthur release date all but assures Batman vs. Superman stays in May, as Warner Bros. wouldn’t want two of their own movies to cannibalize each other. [THR]
