Oscars: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’ Arrives With the Zeitgeist in Its Sights

Oscars: Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Post’ Arrives With the Zeitgeist in Its Sights
When producer Amy Pascal first acquired Liz Hannah’s spec script “The Post” she thought, “Hillary Clinton is going to win [the presidency], so this will be perfect,” the former Sony Pictures head said at the film’s first west coast screening on Sunday night. “It was the story of a woman finding her voice, and an entire country finding its voice.”

Last year’s election, of course, went in another direction, but it was still an important theme to explore, perhaps more important than ever.

Alongside members of the film’s cast and crew, Pascal was speaking to an audience of Academy, guild, and press members who filled Fox’s Darryl F. Zanuck Theater for a look at director Steven Spielberg’s latest effort, one of the awards season’s most anticipated releases. It also screened in New York on Sunday, with Spielberg and key players Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep among those in attendance.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight animated movie gets a trailer, cover art and cast

IGN has revealed a trailer for the DC Universe Animated Original Movie Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, the upcoming adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s 1989 one-shot of the same name; check it out below…

“An adaptation of the popular 1989 tale that introduced us to a Victorian Era Dark Knight who was in pursuit of Jack the Ripper. Written by Brian Augustyn and drawn by Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame, Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is largely considered to be the very first “Elseworlds” tale. At 48 pages, the original comic is relatively slim, meaning the movie version will offer an expanded version of the story, something that’s sure to delight fans of its cobblestone-paved world.”

Update: Here a look at the cover artwork…

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Trailer Promises An Awesome Animated Outing

DC’s Elseworlds series were some of my favorite comics as a kid. Why would I want to get wrapped up in the stodgy, never-ending plots of Death and Return of Superman or Knightfall when I could enjoy Batman becoming a vampire in Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, a Communist Superman in Red Son or the weird alt-dc Universe of Jla: The Nail?

The originator of this label was Brian Augustin and Mike Mignola’s excellent Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which transposes Bruce Wayne/Batman to the late 19th century and has him tangle with Jack the Ripper (and was subsequently ranked as the 11th greatest Batman graphic novel of all-time by IGN). Clearly, someone at DC agrees with me, because 2018 will see the arrival of an animated adaptation of the story and, from the looks of the trailer above, it’s going to be awesome.

Apparently hewing pretty close to the original,

Gotham by Gaslight Trailer Has Batman Fighting Jack the Ripper

Gotham by Gaslight Trailer Has Batman Fighting Jack the Ripper
The first trailer for the animated adaptation of Batman: Gotham by Gaslight has arrived. It's taken the live-action DC universe a little while to truly find its footing, but, a few missteps aside, the animated DC movies have been truly terrific for a very long time. The next animated DC adventure has Batman facing off against Jack the Ripper at the turn of the century and it's going to be a bloody, action-packed, R-rated adventure.

Warner Bros. confirmed during San Diego Comic-Con that Gotham by Gaslight was going to be the next classic DC story to get the animated movie treatment. While this is just a teaser trailer, it looks like director Sam Liu has done something that looks to be pretty faithful to the source material. It certainly gives us a version of Batman we haven't seen on screen before, animated or otherwise. It looks like this could be

Trailer drops for Steven Spielberg’s “The Post”

It was only a matter of time. Perhaps the biggest X factor all season long has been what to make of The Post, Steven Spielberg’s latest film. Centered on the epic fight that The Washington Post had with the United States government over the right to publish the infamous Pentagon Papers, this is Academy catnip. Until now though, it had been completely unseen. We were just going by the fact that Spielberg working with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, plus the subject matter, makes it a force to reckon with. Now, a Trailer has dropped, just a few hours ago. You’ll be able to see it shortly, but first…a tiny bit of discussion is in order.

First Trailer for Steven Spielberg's 'The Post' Starring Hanks & Streep

"To make this decision, to risk her fortune and the company that's been her entire life, well I think that's brave." 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's other film, The Post. Before Spielberg's Ready Player One movie comes out, he has this one first - a story about The Washington Post and publishing the Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War. This seems like a very important, very timely story to present in these times. It will hit theaters in December and expand wide in January. Tom Hanks stars as editor Ben Bradlee, and Meryl Streep stars as Post publisher Katharine Graham. The cast includes Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods.
