'Justice League' Could Function as Batman Reboot

Published by

Dark Knight Rises
Christopher Nolan has said he's done with Batman. He's been saying it for a while. And even though The Dark Knight Rises is closing in on a Billion dollar worldwide gross, it's unlikely he'll be swayed. But it's not as if he didn't leave Warner Brothers some options, and those options might be pursued in the Justice League movie.

The Expendables 2
You wouldn't know it from the weather, or practically anything else, but summer is over. At least for movies, where we're getting second and third stringers in the theater. And that's why only one film cracked ten million this weekend, and that's why The Expendables 2 stays on top. It's a weak week.

Though The Bourne Legacy couldn't top the last two Bourne sequels, it did manage to win the weekend, and is the first new film to hit number one since The Dark Knight Rises opened. More than anything, it did the right thing by moving back a week, and if its big competition was...

The Best And Worst Reboots In Cinema

Best And Worst Reboots
There's a thin line between remakes and reboots. And sometimes, in this business, we makes the mistake of using them as synonyms for each other. But there's a big difference between the two, the main one being that there actually aren't very many movie reboots out there... yet. Remakes there's a ton. Movie reboots on the other hand, aren't as popularized. But that's going to change in...

Bane (Tom Hardy)
Christopher Nolan actually filmed a scene that would have explained Bane's backstory to us, but when the time came, opted to leave it out of The Dark Knight Rises. In a recent interview with the film's costume designer, she revealed that there was flashback footage that would have probably provided us with a better understanding of Tom Hardy's villainous...

Box Office Predictions: Can 'Total Recall' Dethrone 'The Dark Knight'?

Total Recall Movie Review
I wonder who's actually excited to see the Total Recall remake. Are people stoked to watch a set of B-list actors go through the motions? It seems the film keeps getting three stars from those who like it, and it feels like a movie that is satisfied with being good enough. But is good enough enough to break The Dark Knight Rises run at the...

'The Dark Knight Rises' Scores $300 Million So Far, Breaks IMAX Box Office...

Published by

Dark Knight Rises
Say what you will about the flaws of The Dark Knight Rises—it’s Swiss-cheesed with more plot holes than the entire Nolan oeuvre combined, it lacks some of the idea-based thematic unity of the previous Nolan Bat films, etc—it’s still an out-and-out spectacle of technical filmmaking.  A little bloodless, yes, but still more comprehensible than anything Michael...

Here’s the pitch for The Dark Knight Returns, an animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s 1986 graphic novel: it’s been a decade since Bruce Wayne last appeared as Batman, but a new threat to Gotham in the form of a hulking madman helps to draw the Dark Knight out of retirement as he makes a final bid to save Gotham, and this time he teams up with...

Box Office Predictions: Who Watches 'The Watch'?

Published by

The Watch - Cast in Action
The Dark Knight Rises opened big but not so big that it broke any major records. But that too can be qualified in that in pure ticket sales it would be the #1 if - say - the film were in 3D.  TDKR may just make somewhere north of $450 Million domestic instead of trumping The Avengers. The film should make a billion...
