Common says George Miller’s Justice League Mortal was going to have a “raw edge”

Common is currently participating in interviews for the now released John Wick: Chapter 2 [you can read my review here], and as us to be expected the actor is fielding a number of superhero related questions. Specifically, Yahoo Movies asked about his casting as Green Lantern in Mad Max creator George Miller’s unfortunately canned Justice League Mortal project.

“Yeah, I was cast and we started rehearsals for the film,” said the actor/rapper. “I went to Australia. I tried on the outfit and everything. It was heartbreaking, but it happened. The script was super-dope. It was intricate. And knowing George Miller was going to do it, you knew it was going to have that raw edge. But it had Superman, Aquaman, it had all of the characters really involved. Each one of them had moments and you got to know them. It was a strong piece.”

‘Atlanta’ Star Keith Stanfield Crashes Critics Choice Stage to Accept Best Comedy Series Award
Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards took a strange turn when “Atlanta” star Keith Stanfield gave a short acceptance speech for an award his show didn’t win. After “Silicon Valley” nabbed the Best Comedy Series award — for which “Atlanta” was also nominated — Stanfield appeared on stage before “Silicon Valley” executive producer Tom Lassally could get to the mic.

“I want to thank everybody for honoring us in this way,” Stanfield said. “We worked very hard on ‘Silicon Valley’ and here we are. Thank you.” Many in the audience then applauded, no doubt relieved that Stanfield wasn’t actually confused about which show won, and especially releived he wasn’t taking a page from Kanye West’s 2009 MTV Music Video Awards book.

“No idea who that was,” Lassally said, before giving his own acceptance speech.

‘Starship Troopers’ Remake Is Still Happening, Gets New Writers

  • The Playlist
You may have forgotten, but half a decade ago, producer Neil Moritz (the ‘Fast & Furious‘ franchise, “xXx,” “Stealth,” “S.W.A.T.”) snapped up the rights and plotted a remake of “Starship Troopers,” with fellow producer Toby Jaffe also working on the project. Writers Zack Stentz (“Thor” and “X-Men: First Class”) and Edward Miller were tasked with knocking out a draft of the script, and a couple years ago described their movie as “[l]ess a satire, and more an actual adaptation of the [Robert A.

How Did This Get Made: A Conversation with Jon Iles, Military Advisor of ‘Stealth’

  • Slash Film
If you stick around and watch the credits of almost any movie featuring armed combat, you’re likely to find someone listed as that film’s “Military Advisor.” But what, exactly, does this job entail? And how much more realistic does their work make our movies? To find out, we spoke with Jon Iles—a 25+ year veteran […]

‘Chef’s Table’ vs. ‘Top Chef’ for Emmys as Haute Cuisine Rides High on TV

‘Chef’s Table’ vs. ‘Top Chef’ for Emmys as Haute Cuisine Rides High on TV
The signature moment in each episode of Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Chef’s Table” is no more than a succession of plates. Composer Duncan Thum’s melodramatic strings herald abstractions of texture and color, labeled as if on view at the Met: A rough pile of gray shards and purple flowers spattered with orange liquid (Grant Achatz’s “Graffiti, Carrot Spray Paint, Wild Mushrooms”); a wood husk filled with delicacies in the guise of dirt, twigs, and moss (Dominique Crenn’s “A Walk in the Forest”). Each montage is an expression of the belief that haute cuisine is high art, one shared by the series’ renowned subjects. “There [are] other disciplines that we can draw on for inspiration,” Achatz remarks. “There are no rules. Do whatever you want.”

For a series defined by cuisine that defies convention, however—gold-leafed ants and pillows of nutmeg air, flights of fancy and sleights of hand

‘BoJack Horseman’ Eviscerates SeaWorld With Killer (Whale) Strip Club Sequence

‘BoJack Horseman’ Eviscerates SeaWorld With Killer (Whale) Strip Club Sequence
[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episodes 2 & 3.]

“What are you talking about? It’s just whales!”

The idea of seeing zoos as prisons is nothing new, but Raphael Bob-Waksberg took the concept a step further in “BoJack Kills,” the third episode of “BoJack Horseman” Season 3. In light of the allegations made against SeaWorld in the wake of “Blackfish,” the opening moments of Episode 3 obliterated all other interpretations, efficiently and effectively establishing how parents paying for their children to watch abused animals perform is pretty damn similar to grown men throwing dollar bills for grown women to scoop up from their knees.

“Families come together to admire the fine female form of the majestic killer whale. It’s educational!”

“You and your little ones are going to get moist!”

“Bring your pre-pubescent daughters who are just beginning to be cognizant of a woman’s role in the world. They won’t internalize deeply problematic notions about the commodification

What next for our Oscar winners?

From Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars, Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux, Jamie Foxx in Stealth, to Eddie Redmayne in Jupiter Ascending, Oscar winners always ride the momentum of their award glory to the next prestige film. 

So what's next for our Oscar winners?

Leo finally won so he can crawl back into the bear (supermodel) cave (mansion) and never work again right? Unlikely, although he has absolutely nothing on his slate at the moment except for staring at his Oscar muttering "the way of the future... the way of the future....". I would genuinely love to see Leo in a movie where he plays a unlucky in love animal services employee who keeps stealing Kathryn Heigl's dog so he can give it back to her and appear the hero, that gets 36% on Rotten Tomatoes. Lighten Up Leo! There are rumours of another Scorcese collaboration about a serial killer. Just the light material we're looking for.

George Miller discusses the aborted Justice League Mortal

Over the past six months or so, we’ve had our first real glimpse at George Miller’s aborted DC movie Justice League Mortal, including concept art of Aquaman, a sculpture of Martian Manhunter, some storyboards, and images of Megan Gale’s Wonder Woman. Now the Mad Max: Fury Road director has been talking about the 2007 project to The Hollywood Reporter, explaining how it came about, and how it fell apart…

“There was a really great script. And Warners said, ‘Let’s do it. Let’s do a Justice League.’ I really was attracted to it. But there was a writers strike looming. We had to cast it very quickly, which we did with Warners’ casting people. And we cast it really quickly and we mounted it very quickly. And it depended on a start date and it depended on some basic rebate legislation that had just got through a new Australian government.

Sam Raimi To Direct Remake Of Jacques Audiard's 'A Prophet'

  • The Playlist
A few years back, it was announced that Neal H. Moritz, the producer behind cinematic acts of subtlety like "Furious 7," "Jack the Giant Slayer,"  "Battle: Los Angeles," "S.W.A.T," "Stealth," and "I Am Legend," was going to push ahead with a remake of Jacques Audiard's Oscar-nominated "A Prophet." It sent a chill down our spine, but luckily, there was no further news.....until today.... Read More: Novelist Denis Lehane Tapped To Pen Remake Of 'A Prophet' Deadline report that Sam Raimi is in early talks to direct the movie. Not the most obvious choice, but an interesting one, and let's not forget, Raimi has shown a penchant for surprises (check out his lean and nifty little thriller "A Simple Plan"). There is also a bit of silver lining to cling to as Dennis Lehane ("The Drop," "The Wire," "Mystic River") is penning screenplay, and

'The Fast and the Furious' Director Is Making a Movie About Hackers Fighting a Hurricane

  • Movies.com
Rob Cohen directed The Fast and the Furious, kickstarting what would eventually become a billion-dollar global powerhouse. His career, however, didn't gain the same fury as the franchise he started. He's remained a go-to director for modestly budgeted action movies, delivering the likes of xXx, Stealth and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor-- all movies that are fine to watch on cable on a lazy afternoon. His next movie has a premise that's so absurd, though, it may be worth intentionally watching. It's called Category 5, but this isn't your ordinary hurricane disaster movie. It's about a gang of hackers who use the storm of the century as a cover to try and steal $102 million from a U.S. Mint facility that's at the heart of the hurricane...

Rob Cohen to Direct a Disaster Action Thriller 'Category 5'

  • LRM Online
The past decade hasn't been too kind to director Rob Cohen. The director, who is perhaps best known for directing Vin Diesel in the "Fast and the Furious" and "xXx" in the early 2000s hasn't done much for me to be excited about in recent years. In 2005, he directed "Stealth," the forgettable plane movie starring Jamie Foxx. In 2008, he directed the third "Mummy" flick, which effectively ended the franchise. In 2012, he directed the terrible "Alex Cross" movie, and most recently, he helmed the Jennifer Lopez vehicle "Boy Next Door," which wasn't any better received by viewers or critics.

It's now been revealed that Cohen will be going back to the crazy silly action genre with "Category 5," a film that "follows a team of tech hackers who infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility on a small coastal town to steal $102M in cash, just as a disastrous Category 5 hurricane, the storm of the century,

Abe Forsythe's black comedy Down Under is set to hit Australian cinemas on August 4.

Distributed by StudioCanal, the film is a black comedy set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots.

As Forsythe's second feature, it is the story of two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide..

Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious yet poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds, and what was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.

During the shoot, Forsythe told If the narrative mined comedy through the heavy drama.

Director Abe Forsythe and Studiocanal have given us the first look at the new Australian feature film set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots.

Down Under is a black comedy about two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight who are destined to collide..

Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious yet poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds.

What was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.

Director Abe Forsythe, who is also responsible for writing the film.s screenplay, has .taken a balanced look at the ridiculous side of a serious subject..

.There is nothing more satisfying than getting people to laugh at something they feel like they shouldn.t be laughing at. Comedy is the best way to say something meaningful,. he said.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Episode 7 Review – ‘Stealth Strike’

Chris Cooper reviews the seventh episode of Star Wars Rebels season 2…

Stealth Strike goes all in on nostalgia and uses it to brilliantly bring together characters from two very different Star Wars time frames.

Focusing on Kanan and Rex, the episode uses their different pasts and abilities to the forefront. Sure, the ending is exactly what you expect it to be. But when the journey is great fun who cares?

I’m going to get a bit spoilery here Fyi, so beware. You’ve probably all seen it now anyway haven’t you?

You’ll have read before that I do love seeing the various vehicles and vessels of Star Wars, so any time a new one is introduced I’m giddy. Interdictors and their gravity well projectors have been around for a long time, but it’s fantastic to see them taken as canon now. They’re a powerful

…Kicking things off this week with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and after the plethora of new footage from TV spots and on-set visits last week, we got two new spots this week. First up was our third TV spot which featured a few glimpses of unseen footage, and then we got our fourth spot that focused solely on John Boyega’s Finn. Last week I said we wouldn’t get anymore footage, which shows what I know…

Superman takes on Wonder Woman in storyboard art from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).

Check them out below:

So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug.
