Jude Law and Guy Ritchie have got a little thing going on thanks to a couple of Sherlock Holmes movies, and now they might work together again on Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. Ritchie is making his own version of the Arthurian story cycle — perhaps to become a whole franchise of films with sequels loosely based on various characters from Arthurian stories — and he’s now got Jude Law in line to play the bad guy in the first one. Get what info we have on the Jude Law King Arthur casting below. Read More »

UPDATE: An IMAX spokesperson confirmed to /Film that IMAX cameras are being used for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The original article follows, with minor edits.
Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is, without a doubt, one of the biggest movies of all time. Now it quite literally might be one of the biggest of all time too. The film is currently shooting in Chicago (including a particularly recognizable, even iconic scene involving Batman) and several fans who were watching the filming say they saw IMAX cameras capturing the action. We had an idea it would be released in IMAX, but it’s news if the film is shooting in IMAX.
A rumor about this did begin floating over the summer but no one representing Warner Bros. or IMAX would confirm. Now they have. Batman v Superman is filming in IMAX. Below, we reveal how we discovered the Batman v Superman IMAX connection. Read More »
Jai Courtney has been in a significant TV series (Spartacus), a film franchise (Die Hard), helped anchor another would-be series (Jack Reacher) and will soon be seen in Terminator: Genisys (above).

Director Clint Eastwood has great aspirations for American Sniper. First and foremost, he hopes to make a movie paying tribute to the most deadly sniper in the history of the United States. That’s the late Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper. He also hopes to show Kyle not as only a heroic solider, but a complex man confident in his actions and concerned about of their results. The film paints a grim picture of post-traumatic stress disorder and what it does to our veterans, especially in regards to their families. Finally, there’s also a drive to keep things exciting, so there are many gun battles in the deserts of Iraq.
Yes, American Sniper is an incredibly ambitious film with many moving parts. All of those parts work in certain instances, but only on rare occasions do they all come together at once. The disconnection makes the film fall just short of those great aspirations.
American Sniper had its World Premiere on Veterans Day at AFI Fest presented by Audi and you can read the rest of our review below. Read More »

Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity did a fantastic job of showing how isolated one might feel in space. It also really pushed the emotions because of Steven Price‘s Oscar-winning score. Space is a silent vacuum, however, and to give Gravity fans a wholly new experience, an upcoming re-release of the Blu-ray will have a “Silent Space” audio track to give the viewer a sense of what the events of the movie might actually sound like in space. Read more about the Gravity silent space version below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
After the defining performance from Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight, it’s easy to understand why Warner Bros. and the team assembling DC Comics movies at the studio would be wary about writing a new Joker role for a new actor. But it is bound to happen — in fact, it appears to be happening, but not for the film you might assume. A new report says that the Joker may factor in to Suicide Squad, to be directed by David Ayer. And Jared Leto is the current choice to play him. Read More »
