In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure.

Justice League Star Wants Jared Leto’s Joker In The Sequel

DC fans had their minds blown when it was announced back in the summer that an origins movie for the Joker was in the works. Sitting outside the DC Extended Universe, the film is set to feature a new actor as the Clown Prince of Crime in place of Jared Leto. Furthermore, The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is directing with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese on hand to produce.

Since that initial announcement, however, all’s gone quiet on the project with few to no details having been released. As such, fans are left wondering where they’ll see Leto’s Mr. J show up next. Right now, it’s looking like it may be in Suicide Squad 2, after Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) pipped Mel Gibson and Jaume Collet-Serra at the post to sign on as director, while we understand Warner has also drawn up plans for Gotham City Sirens

A Bad Moms Christmas movie review: cruel coal in the stocking

MaryAnn’s quick take… This rushed sequel is an insult to its progenitor movie. A cheap knockoff that doesn’t understand what made Bad Moms so smart, funny, and feminist-wise. I’m “biast” (pro): love the first movie

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer looked awful

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sequel throw its progenitor movie under a bus the way that A Bad Moms Christmas does. If I hadn’t just rewatched Bad Moms, I would have been doubting what I remembered as a very positive reaction to it last year as I sat through this barrage of nasty, cruel, antiwoman, even antimom garbage. But no: as I had just reminded myself, Bad Moms truly is a terrifically smart and wise movie — and also a very funny one — about the impossible job that modern

A Bad Moms Christmas review

Meet the comedy sequel with more montages than Rocky IV: it's A Bad Moms Christmas...

If you didn’t know going into seeing A Bad Moms Christmas that this was a sequel scrambled together in double-quick time, you could soon figure it out. It’s a hodgepodge of half-formed characters, erratic narrative pace, and parts of story that just about smash together to make something okay. That it does so is no small achievement, but it’s worth stating from the off that the comedy heights of last year’s Bad Moms are rarely troubled.

The idea this time is that the Bad MomsMila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn – each have their own Bad Moms to put up with. Respectively, they get Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Baranski gets to play the overbearing, everything has to be perfect one. Hines is the clingy, living her life through her daughter mother.

‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ Review: Gleefully Foul-Mouthed Sequel Is An Unholy Cocktail of Good Cheer and Terrible Taste

‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ Review: Gleefully Foul-Mouthed Sequel Is An Unholy Cocktail of Good Cheer and Terrible Taste
Sometimes, only sometimes, Hollywood serves up exactly what its audiences asks for. Just last summer, many of us asked for “Bad Moms” breakout Kathryn Hahn to gain more recognition for her comedic chops. But not like this: Enter “A Bad Moms Christmas,” a fast-tracked, holiday-themed sequel to the surprise smash hit (nearly $185 million worldwide) that giddily plays up all the worst impulses of Hahn’s indelible character Carla, culminating with the Emmy nominee spouting off the year’s most eye-popping line: “It was almost like waxing the balls of the Dalai Lama.”

You want raunchy Kathryn Hahn, you’re gonna get it, care of a slapdash followup that has mostly forgotten what made the original so weirdly charming.

Set soon after the events of the original film, “A Bad Moms Christmas” follows the eponymous bad moms as they attempt to work through the most stressful time of the year — aka the holidays.

Patty Jenkins Funnels Ideas of Female Empowerment Into Anti-Recidivism Efforts

Patty Jenkins Funnels Ideas of Female Empowerment Into Anti-Recidivism Efforts
After making the 2003 independent film “Monster,” about serial killer Aileen Wuornos, director Patty Jenkins started to correspond with prisoners around the country. “I became educated in how incredibly difficult it can be for people to get out of prison — even when they are innocent, even when they are reformed,” she says. “The world brands a person a prisoner forever.”

While doing research for another project, she connected with producer Scott Budnick, who experienced a similar epiphany when he volunteered to teach creative writing to incarcerated juveniles in Los Angeles. In 2013, Budnick officially started the nonprofit Anti-Recidivism Coalition to help men and women leaving prison navigate ways to reenter society.

Arc offers counseling, mentoring services, education and assistance with housing. It also has partnered with chains like Starbucks, Home Depot and The Cheesecake Factory to facilitate job placement. Budnick uses his connections to the movie industry when he can. “I had a few folks straight out of prison

Awesome New Art Imagines Tom Hiddleston As The Joker

DC fans had their minds blown when it was announced a month ago that an origins movie for the Joker was in the works. Sitting outside the DC Extended Universe, the film is set to feature a new actor as the Clown Prince of Crime in place of Jared Leto. Furthermore, The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is directing with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese on hand to produce.

By leveraging Scorsese’s involvement in the spinoff project, Warner has reportedly set sights on Leonardo DiCaprio for the title role, which would mark the actor’s first major foray into Hollywood’s bustling superhero genre. It would undoubtedly be a historic coup for the studio, but at least at the time of writing, there’s been no mention of Warner Bros. tabling an official deal between both parties.

DC Confirms That The Joker Movie Is Not Connected To Dceu In Any Way

Today’s interview with DC Creative Officer Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson explained that, post-Justice League, Warner Bros. is planning to de-emphasize the shared universe across their films. Now, we know a little bit more as to how it’ll be structured.

You’ll still have movies that are technically within the same universe, but we probably won’t be seeing events in one film influencing another. On top of that, there’ll be a separate line of pics with no connection to the Dceu whatsoever – like the upcoming Joker project.

Perhaps the most intriguing prospect on the DC radar, the film has The Hangover director Todd Phillips attached to co-write and helm, with none other than Martin-freakin-Scorsese apparently in talks to produce. Not only that, but it’s been said that Warner Bros. is targeting Leonardo DiCaprio to play the title role. We’ll see

Geoff Johns talks Warner’s standalone DC movies, Dceu to focus less on interconnectivity

Back in August it was announced that Warner Bros. is set to launch a new DC Comics division, focussing on standalone movies separate from the wider DC Extended Universe and beginning with a Joker origin film from director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and producer Martin Scorsese (Silence), which will see a new actor cast as the Clown Prince of Crime.

During a new interview with Vulture, DC’s chief creative officer – and co-head of DC Films – Geoff Johns and DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson have been chatting about the studio’s plans for their comic book properties, with Johns providing a brief overview of what they are looking to achieve with this newest venture:

“They’re outside the mainstream film universe and they feature different actors and worlds and takes on the characters. They’re most likely all going to be one-offs. We’ll be announcing the name of it soon-ish,

Wrinkle in Time Gets Game of Thrones Composer
Disney's adaptation A Wrinkle in Time is shaping up to be one of next year's most highly-anticipated films, as fans wait for the next batch of footage following the first A Wrinkle in Time trailer that dropped at the D23 Expo back in July. There has been no confirmation as to when the next footage may arrive, but director Ava DuVernay just recently dropped an interesting piece of news on social media, confirming that Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has come aboard to do the score. The director included a photo of herself alongside the composer in the editing bay, where fans can get a new glimpse of Storm Reid's pivotal character Meg Murry.

The director revealed on social media that she has "listened to his music for years and swooned," before confirming that he will compose the score for A Wrinkle in Time. It's possible that the

‘Father Figures’ Trailer: Owen Wilson & Ed Helms Are Brothers Looking For Their Father

Father Figures” is another addition to the stable of raunchy studio comedies that made stars Owen Wilson and Ed Helms’ names, and caps off a year wherein Wilson is also looking for awards recognition in the weepie “Wonder.”

A new trailer has arrived for the Warner Bros. comedy which marks the directorial debut of “The Hangover” cinematographer Lawrence Sher — here’s hoping that this film can recapture some of that first film’s gonzo charm and less of the seedy and misogynist humor of the following films in that franchise.

Todd Phillips’ Joker origin movie script to be turned in next week

Almost a month ago to the day, it was revealed that Warner Bros. had tapped Todd Phillips (The Hangover) to direct a Joker origin movie, which would be separate from the DC Extended Universe.

Well, it seems the project may be further along than we thought, as Justin Kroll from Variety is reporting that Phillips and his co-writer Scott Silver (8 Mile) are set to turn in their script next week, and may even be looking at shooting the project in 2018.

The Joker Origins Movie Already Has A Completed Script, May Shoot In 2018

DC fans had their minds blown when it was announced a month ago that an origins movie for the Joker was in the works. Sitting outside the DC Extended Universe, the film is set to feature a new actor as the Clown Prince of Crime in place of Jared Leto. Furthermore, The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is directing with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese on hand to produce.

Still, there wasn’t initially any guarantee that the project would see the light of day anytime soon. After all, plenty of other DC films have been announced only to never end up materializing (see: Lobo and Justice League Dark). That won’t be the case for The Joker, though, as we’re now hearing that it’s being fast-tracked into production.

Variety’s Justin Kroll confirmed via Twitter that sources have informed him the script is set to be handed in to Warner Bros. next week.

The Joker origins movie screenplay nearly ready

Simon Brew Sep 21, 2017

Warner Bros might just have its Joker origins movie ready to film next year at this rate...

It looks like news broke of the planned The Joker origins movie that Warner Bros is setting up long after work had actually begun on the film. This is the movie that won’t feature Jared Leto as The Joker (although he will be back in at least two films, including Suicide Squad 2), will be overseen by Martin Scorsese in some capacity, and that The Hangover’s Todd Phillips is set to direct.

Furthermore, it looks like the project may be on the fast track.

Variety is reporting that the screenplay for the movie is expected to be handed over to Warner Bros next week. It’s a fair assumption that the studio will want to do some tinkering work with it, and the script that lands may, of course,

Margot Robbie Calls Joker and Harley Quinn a Messed Up Love Story

  • MovieWeb
Harley Quinn Vs. the Joker is definitely happening. And while David Ayer had some fun last week sharing an old image from Suicide Squad that showed Harley in her Jester outfit, and got everyone speculating about his return as a director, it sounds like writer/directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa might actually be taking on this iteration of the two characters. Out promoting Goodbye Christopher Robin, Margot Robbie confirmed that she's also heard that this director duo is on board for the super villain spin-off.

As nice as anyone wants to be to DC Films, there's no denying that their impending Dceu slate is an outright mess. There are movies in development all over the place, but none are a sure thing. We've heard that Shazam, which is technically a New Line movie, will be the next to go into production after Aquaman. And from there it is anyone's guess.
