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.
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
Clark Kent’s journey of self-discovery continues in the second installment of Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s remarkable reimagining of Superman’s origin story. This chapter takes young Clark to the Pacific coast and beyond, as he discovers a place as sensational as he is…Atlantis! There he meets new people, finds love, clashes with gargantuan beasts and discovers the man he’s meant to be.

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
Black Stars Above #1: "Vault is thrilled to announce Black Stars Above, a terrifying new comic book series that is part of Vault's annual autumnal horror imprint, Nightfall.
A horror story that's part The Revenant and part At the Mountains of Madness, Black Stars Above is a chilling historical cosmic horror tale of survival from the deranged minds of writer Lonnie Nadler and debut artist Jenna Cha, with colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
The year is 1887 and a storm brews.
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
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.
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.

In every version, Batman is billionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne by day, orphaned at a young age when his parents were killed. By night, he's Gotham City's protector and vigilante against its criminal underworld. With each new iteration, more and more issues surrounding his origins, his motivations, and his morals arise. Does he have a strict anti-gun rule, or only in certain films?
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.”
“This story will be set in the world its creators painstakingly built… but
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,
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

"After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in 'Arthur', a young mercenary, in a quest to find 'Merlin' and deliver an ancient sword.

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.

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

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.
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
