What a long, strange trip it’s been for Batman on the big screen. There was the 1966 movie based on the TV show. Tim Burton’s 1989 hit, which lead us to the wild Joel Schumacher films. Christopher Nolan then took over and turned it into Oscar-bait and in a few years, not only will Batman fight Superman and join the Justice League, he’ll be the star of his own Lego movie.
That’s a whole lot of material to work with for writer Seth Grahame-Smith and director Chris McKay, who are making the Lego Batman Movie spinoff set for release in 2017. According to producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, they will acknowledge it all. Read the quote below. Read More »

Bryan Singer once again has the unenviable task of casting two of Marvel’s most iconic X-Men. Back in 2000, the director brought in Famke Janssen and James Marsden to play Jean Grey and Cyclops, rolls that extended through and including this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now that the series is continuing on with the X-Men: First Class versions of the characters in X-Men Apocalypse, he has to cast those two crucial roles again.
One report says three actors and three actresses are on Singer’s short list for each role. Among them? Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Read more about the X-Men Apocalypse Cyclops and Jean Grey casting below. Read More »
Despite being as good, if not better, than its previous two incarnations, The Expendables 3 didn’t light a fire at the domestic box office. After the first two films grossed $103 million and $85 million respectively, the third film only did $39 million (Internationally it did a respectable $206 million, but that was still a franchise low).
There are plenty of reasons why The Expendables 3 under-performed, but it certainly wasn’t for lack of star power. Original stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and others were joined by Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammar, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes as well as a whole team of young soldiers, including Kellen Lutz and Ronda Rousey.
You can see all those stars and more on the Blu-ray, which is released November 25. One example of the extras on the disc are a funny Expendables 3 gag reel, which features Ford and Gibson hamming it up on set, cursing, it’s good stuff. Check out the Expendables 3 gag reel below. Read More »

Since his return to the screen, Arnold Schwarzenegger has dabbled not only in new projects, but in films that return the actor to well-known roles from his past. There’s Terminator: Genisys, of course, in which Schwarzenegger steps back into the metal skeleton of the T-800. And there are possible returns to Twins and Conan, as well. Now the actor says there’s a potential Running Man sequel in the offing — that would be a return to the comic/dystopian world of the 1987 adaptation of Stephen King’s early novel of the same title.
