Peter Jackson doesn’t shy away from the idea of making epic-length stories, and of creating conflicts within them that match the overall scope of his Middle-Earth films.

Batman means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. The best thing about Mondo's new gallery show centered around DC Comics' Dark Knight is that it knows this. If your Batman is the violent, grizzled version Frank Miller drew and wrote, you're covered. If your Batman is the level-headed martial artist and detective of the Christopher Nolan films, you'll find plenty to love. You love Bathound? This gallery show has Bathound. Few characters have had the longevity of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego and this show is evidence of why.

You know there’s something wrong right off the bat when a movie is based on a board game. It’s just another pitiful extension of Hollywood’s obsession with making movies out of recognizable brands or toys or theme park rides. Sometimes those initially terrible ideas work out (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), and most of the time they don’t (Battleship, almost all of the Transformers movies).

Multiple reports surfaced Friday that Warner Bros. was angling for a female filmmaker to direct Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman,” which is slated for 2017.

The ABCs of Death 2 gives twenty-six directors (or, in some cases, directorial teams) the chance to explore whatever mean, violent, strange ideas they want. Each is anchored only with a letter, a small budget, and a running time of just a few minutes. One director is Rodney Ascher, who made Room 237, and is now making a film about sleep paralysis. We have an interview coming with Ascher where he talks about his work on the anthology film, but for now we’re going to give him room to talk about one of his favorite death scenes.

A few days ago we had the chance to sit down with Shailene Woodley and the cast of White Bird in a Blizzard and talk about the project.Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green) disappears, just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. In fact it's almost a relief.

We don’t know a whole lot about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which is amazing because it’s just weeks away from landing in theaters.

However, it turns out the science might not be so much fiction after all. Physicist Kip Thorne is an executive producer on the project, and he spent months meeting with Nolan...Read MoreRead Comments

Although it doesn't hit theaters until next month, we can tell you that 'The Babadook' is one of the best horror movies of 2014 and that director Jennifer Kent is someone you will want to keep your eyes on for the foreseeable future. However, before her film freaked everyone out at Sundance and Fantastic Fest, Kent made a short film titled 'Monster,' which acted as a warm-up to her first feature gig.

Every few months, someone on the internet loudly declares that we're probably nearing the end of the superhero movie as a popular genre. And then, every few months, another trailer arrives that proves that we're going to be watching movies starring people wearing capes and tights for a long time yet. The new trailer for 'Avengers 2' lit the internet on fire, as you'd expect from the sequel to one of the most popular blockbusters in recent years. In fact, if success can be measured in trailer views, then Marvel and Disney can already call this one a big winner. Continue reading…
Few films possess the skin-crawling nightmare sensibility of Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” a claustrophobic classic that has burrowed its way into the minds of moviegoers for decades now. Scott has since dabbled in a slew of genres—everything from gangster yarns to swords and sandals epics—and yet, some argue that he’s never come close to capturing the sinister perfection on display in his landmark 1979 sci-fi picture.
Reviewer’s note: I saw “Low Down” at Sundance earlier this year in January. Since then, the movie has apparently gone through some kind of rigorous edit to improve the picture and give it shape. Having recently rewatched the new edit—now 114 minutes down from 119 originally—I can safely say that most of the original issues still stand, unfortunately. John Hawks and Elle Fanning are great, but “Low Down” is still far too monotonous, lethargic, and sluggish a picture to really endorse in any meaningful way. What follows is a slightly edited version of my original Sundance review.
From the Graham Norton Show on BBC 1 tonight, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Miranda Hart and Timothy Spall. So for Benedict, more Sherlock in 2015. No comment on being in the next Star Trek. But no he’s not in Star Wars – though he did pop by the set. And finally, Benedict Cumberbatch gets to say the word “penguin” correctly.
The Shawshank Redemption's Frank Darabont directed the first episode of The Walking Dead, but it will be Adam Davidson who brings the planned spin-off to the small screen. Shooting is scheduled to begin later this year, but when the "companion" series will air hasn't been made clear. Comic book scribe and executive producer Robert Kirkman developed the untitled show with Dave Erickson (Marco Polo) and it apparently takes place during the same zombie apocalypse shown in The Walking Dead (just in a different location and perhaps even a different time period).

Sony Pictures Classics Dawn Wiener is dead, long live Dawn Wiener! Todd Solondz‘s second feature film, Welcome to the Dollhouse, is hailed as the filmmaker’s big breakthrough — a bold, gross, weird and uncomfortably honest look at one awkward tween’s coming-of-age in nineties New Jersey. The film starred Heather Matarazzo as Dawn “Wiener Dog” Wiener, an outcast desperate to fit in with her bone-headed peers, her terrible family and a classmate who repeatedly attempts to rape her.
Alex Ross Perry makes no attempt to mask that the Philip of his new film Listen Up Philip, played to perfection by Jason Schwartzman, at least partly takes his inspiration from the daunted body of work of author, Philip Roth. Though Perry doesn't aim at any one Roth work in specific, he manages to evoke the tone of Roth's ideas far more effectively than other proper adaptations of his books. Schwartzman plays Philip, a young writer anticipating the release of his second novel.
