For years now, James Bond has been the most bankable action character in the business. We may chuckle a little at Universal Pictures‘ plans to produce 10 different “Fast And The Furious” movies or Disney‘s aggressive release calendar for its slate of Marvel movies, but that’s nothing compared to the success that Bond has seen. Since Sean Connery‘s first outing as the dashing spy in the 1962 film “Dr. Continue reading Annapurna Pictures Emerges As A Surprise Contender For The Rights To James Bond at The Playlist.

When people say that you shouldn’t remake the classics, what they really mean is that you shouldn’t remake the classics without a good idea. George Cukor‘s 1954 film “A Star Is Born” is undoubtedly in the inner circle of Hollywood greats, but that hasn’t stopped first-time director Bradley Cooper from planning an ambitious and — let’s admit it — intriguing big screen remake. We’ve known for a while now that Cooper would be transplanting the movie to the country music scene and bringing in actress and pop star Lady Gaga for the Judy Garland role, but Warner Bros Continue reading Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake Gets Its First Photo And Some New Plot Details at The Playlist.

For the past decade, Warner Bros. Animation has been giving DC Comics fans the movies they deserve, juggling a variety of tones and art styles to deliver adaptations of some of the biggest events in comics history. Beginning with ‘Superman: Doomsday‘ in 2007, the DC Animated Universe has served as both a blessing and a curse: on the one hand, examples of what faithful comic book adaptations can look like, and on the other hand, proof that the live-action Warner Bros.  Continue reading Warner Bros.

LAS VEGAS – The big headlines out of Warner Bros.’ buzzworthy CinemaCon presentation were over their DC movies “Wonder Woman,” “Aquaman” and “Justice League,” but that’s not all that created a stir from the studio on Wednesday.

LAS VEGAS – It’s been a long time since Marvel Studios and Disney got theater owners excited with a glimpse of new footage for their films let alone trekked some of their big stars to Sin City to walk the CinemaCon stage. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are happily not following that model.  During Warner Bros.’ almost two hour presentation the studio dedicated the final act to its fledgling superhero universe unveiling complete scenes from this summer’s “Wonder Woman,” a concept art trailer for 2018’s “Aquaman” and some new shots thrown into an extended trailer for “Justice League,” arriving at a cineplex near you this Thanksgiving.

It’s hard to believe “Live By Night” could’ve gone wrong. Ben Affleck has proven he could make top-shelf blockbuster entertainment with “Gone Baby Gone,” “The Town,” and “Argo,” and getting together a cast including Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper, to adapt a book by Dennis Lehane seemed like it couldn’t lose.
