5 Of The Best: Gerard Butler Movies

This week, Gerard Butler takes to the big screen once again in the third film in the ‘… Has Fallen’ series with Angel Has Fallen. The film follows the previously released Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen, released in 2013 and 2016 respectively. Those two movies pulled in $170 million and $205 million respectively, a huge return on the studio’s investment. The third film will be hoping to reflect that success in a couple of days’ time.

Ahead of the big release of Angel Has Fallen, we look at 5 of the best Gerard Butler performances in his three-decade-long career.

300

Arguably the film that secured Butler’s name as a global superstar, 300 was an adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel of the same name, swinging into cinemas in 2006. Directed by future Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice helmer Zack Snyder, 300 saw Butler play the role of King Leonidas, the Spartan ruler who led

Best of Frightfest: ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Dirs. Robert Rodriguez & Frank Miller

Best of Frightfest: As the twentieth anniversary of Arrow Video Frightfest approaches, we at team Thn take a look back at some of the best and brightest films that have screened over the last two decades. Today we look at the divisive Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

It is no wonder that it can be a little difficult to find people who have a similar amount of affection for the Sin City sequel that they do for the original. Coming out a whole nine years after the 2005 original, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had been held in production limbo for a frustrating amount of time. While the original certainly has fans and was deemed a success critically and commercially, there’s no denying that the nine year gap was never going to do the sequel any favours. And while A Dame to Kill For certainly isn

Batman Universe is a New Kind of Dark Knight Adventure

Marc Buxton Aug 13, 2019

Brian Michael Bendis spoke to us about bringing the Riddler and a Brave and the Bold vibe to Batman Universe.

Early last year, DC introduced a series of Walmart exclusive comics featuring new stories by some of comics’ top creators. One of those featured a Batman tale written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington. These stories were kind of difficult for many fans to find on a consistent basis, so DC’s faithful will be thrilled to hear that Bendis and Derington’s Batman story is currently being reprinted as Batman Universe, available wherever comics are sold.

When Bendis arrived at DC, many fans predicted that the author, crime writer extraordinaire that he is, would be all over Gotham City. Instead, Bendis made Metropolis and the Superman titles his home, making Batman Universe his first crack at the World's Greatest Detective. It was our

Every Alan Moore Movie, Ranked According To IMDb

If you ever saw Alan Moore in the street, you might walk in the other direction. But for over thirty years. Moore has been taking his unique curmudgeonly style to all kinds of popular heroes, crafting marquis stories like “Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow?” For Superman. He’s also created quirky superheroes for Marvel like Captain Britain. He helped to reinvigorate, along with Frank Miller, The Batman in “The Killing Joke.”

His greatest works though are his original takes on the superhero genre and his maxi-format sagas like Watchmen, V For Vendetta, and From Hell. He helped reinvigorate Swamp Thing for DC. He has won countless awards over the years and is loved by plenty of comic book fans world-wide. The guy just doesn’t like his work being adapted for the screen. He has always insisted that his stories should exist only in the medium that they were first presented in.

Netflix’s Arthurian Legend Series ‘Cursed’ Adds ‘Humans’ & ‘Troy: Fall Of A City’ Star Bella Dayne

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Netflix’s Arthurian legend series Cursed has added Humans and Troy: Fall of a City actress Bella Dayne.

Dayne joins previously announced cast including Katherine Langford, Devon Terrell, Gustaf Skarsgard, Peter Mullan and Lily Newmark. In a series-regular role, she will play Red Spear, described to us as “a regal and ruthless viking captain, with an eye for treasure. … Loyal to no one, the Red Spear and her crew raid villages along the coast of Britain until a Fey stowaway boards her ship and entangles their fates.”

Netflix gave a 10-episode order to the project, which is based on comics supremo Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler’s upcoming illustrated book. Zetna Fuentes (Jessica Jones) and Jon East (Killing Eve) are among directors on the drama epic, which is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of the young woman (Langford) who would become the Lady of the Lake.

10 Hilarious Batman Logic Memes Only True DC Fans Will Understand

As one of the most recognizable of all comic book superheroes, Batman's illustrious career as the Caped Crusader has spanned countless decades. Emerging as just another Superman clone in the late '30s from the minds of Bob Kane and Bill Finger, his affable charm would be replaced fifty years later with glowering menace when Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns debuted. Since then, he's seen many incarnations in video games, several film franchises, and no less than a dozen animated series.

In every version, Batman is billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne by day, orphaned at a young age when his parents were killed.

Does he have a strict anti-gun rule, or only in certain films?

‘Watchmen’ Comic Creator ‘Not Thrilled’ About Adaptation, HBO’s Casey Bloys Says

‘Watchmen’ Comic Creator ‘Not Thrilled’ About Adaptation, HBO’s Casey Bloys Says
Alan Moore, whose popular graphic novel “Watchmen” will provide the basis for an HBO drama created by Damon Lindelof, is “not thrilled” about the new project, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said Wednesday.

That’s not a surprise: Moore has famously opposed attempts to adapt his work for the screen. Asked if Moore has changed his stance, Bloys said no.

“I think that remains the case. That he’s not thrilled,” Bloys said in a Television Critics Association Q&a.

Bloys added that Moore isn’t consulting on the show. Again, no surprise.

Zack Snyder directed a film version of the 12-issue “Watchmen” comics series in 2009. Lindelof has said his take isn’t a remake or sequel, but a “remix.”

Rutger Hauer, Star of Blade Runner, Passes Away at 75

Joseph Baxter Jul 24, 2019

The inimitable Rutger Hauer has died at 75, leaving behind a prolific legacy in film and television.

“I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.”

Rutger Hauer passed away this past Friday, July 19, at the age of the age of 75, having succumbed to a short illness. The news was revealed today by the actor’s agent, Steve Kennis. However, unlike the unforgettable soliloquy – quoted above – that he delivered in 1982’s Blade Runner, his moments will not be lost in time.

Indeed, the ever-emotive and versatile Dutch actor, Hauer, whose funeral was held today, leaves behind a breadth of work in the realms of film and television, spanning back to his first onscreen role, in the 1969 medieval television series,

The Next ‘Game Of Thrones’? A Post-Comic-Con Appraisal Of Potential Heirs To The Throne
Watching the Game of Thrones contingent take their final (and somewhat complicated) bow this weekend at Comic-Con International I found myself wondering: Will we ever see the likes of the HBO hit series again? Fans will continue to debate the creative choices made in the finale season but the overall accomplishment of David Benioff & D.B. Weiss and their writing staff was truly staggering. They not only delivered the most stirring fantasy epic since Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings they did it on a weekly basis and with nuances that made the sword-and-sorcery show a must-see favorite even among non-fantasy fans.

That now-activated audience is more than ready to get back on the dragon for another ride, too, if a worthy television or film steps forward with a comparable epic. No surprise, there are a slew of would-be heirs to the crown lining up, not least among

Comic-Con Crowd Tells ‘The Batman’ Director Matt Reeves ‘Don’t Screw Up Our Batman Movie’

Comic-Con Crowd Tells ‘The Batman’ Director Matt Reeves ‘Don’t Screw Up Our Batman Movie’
If director Matt Reeves wasn’t worried about pressure from fans over his upcoming DC Comics movie “The Batman,” maybe he’d better start. Because on the first day of Comic-Con 2019, Bat-fans in San Diego told him bluntly “don’t screw up.”

The jab came Thursday during a completely unrelated panel, the 7th annual “Musical Anatomy of a Superhero” in Ballroom 20. Among the panelists in attendance was “Up” Oscar winner and composer Michael Giacchino, who in addition to scoring superhero films like “Doctor Strange” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” also happens to be good friends with Reeves. So it is that Giacchino recorded a video for his pal, showing the huge Ballroom 20 audience shouting “Hey Matt, don’t screw up our Batman movie.”

“Nothing like a little encouragement,” Reeves said later when he posted the video on Twitter. Check it out below.

Hero Nation: John Carpenter, JJ Abrams Join Hollywood’s Push Into Comics
John Carpenter is taking his Hollywood horror sensibilities to Gotham City, with DC Comics’ recent announcement that the director of The Thing, Halloween, and The Fog is co-writing a special 40-page Joker comic book.

Carpenter isn’t the only Hollywood notable dabbling in the comic book world — far from it, in fact, he’s actually part of a crush of celebrity tourists who are putting their names on comics. The allure for some is the IP creation opportunities, while others hope to tap into the evolving medium’s new indie-spirited cachet. For some it’s a purer pursuit, a low-cost way to produce a pet project or a nostalgic lark that reconnects them with comics traditions and characters they loved in their own youth.

With Hollywood poised to make its annual southbound pilgrimage to San Diego’s Comic-Con International this week, here’s a look at two dozen notable show-biz

Oscars invite 842 new members in 2019: Complete list by branch (and 2014-2018 totals too)
This year, the motion picture academy made history by inviting an equal number of women and men to join. In all, 842 film professionals were invited to become part of the organization that hands out the Oscars. Compare this intake to the totals of the previous five years: a record 928 in 2018; 774 in 2017; 683 in 2016; 322 in 2015; and 271 in 2014.

While Academy Awards nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

For example, actors must “have a minimum of three theatrical feature film credits, in all of which the roles played were scripted roles, one of which was released in the past five years, and all of which are of a caliber that reflect the high standards of the Academy.” For writers, directors and producers they need have just two of these credits.

The Batman Has Officially Entered Pre-Production

Matt ReevesThe Batman has finally entered pre-production. Well, if this little tidbit of information turns out to be true anyway. The IMDb Pro updates for the film today announced that it’s moved from the scripting stage to pre-production. So, what does this mean?

Well, with The Dark Knight Rises being the last solo Batman outing and a lot of attention given to the casting of Robert Pattinson, it appears that Warner Bros. are eager to finally get this one out of the gate. We’re hearing that the studio is targeting a June 25th, 2021 release date, with the shoot commencing in late 2019/early 2020.

My guess is that tucked away on the Warner Bros. lot are teams of artists conceptualizing what Pattinson’s take on the hero should look like. There’s a lot of design work that goes into a Batman movie, with the Dark Knight trilogy raising
