Batgirl Star Leslie Grace Reveals First Look At Her Costume

Not to be confused with Batwoman, the Batgirl character has appeared in multiple animated series and "The Lego Batman Movie," but this is our first bonafide chance to see a live-action Batgirl si...

Hannah Shaw-Williams' Top 10 Movies Of 2021

2021: what a year! What a weird, bad, liminal space nightmare of a year. It was groaning under the weight of all the movies that had been pushed back from their 2020 release dates, but the ups and downs of the pandemic flattened the flood of new films. After holding out for a theatrical release, many ended up relegated to either a day-and-date streaming release or no theatrical release at all. Nothing about was certain. In the space of a week I went from cheerfully sitting through three showings...

Brian Cox Was The Original Choice For Robert Baratheon On Game Of Thrones

"Succession" premiered on HBO while "Game of Thrones" was in the home stretch of its eight-season run, and it has since gone on to make Brian Cox into more of a household name. Cox was already a well-known character actor who had appeared in many Hollywood movies, not to mention a veteran of Shakespearean theater and the London stage. He played Hannibal Lecter in Michael Mann's "Manhunter" before the character was ever a twinkle in Anthony Hopkins' eye. However, the role of the wealthy patriarch...

What LeVar Burton Could (And Couldn't) See When He Put On His Star Trek Visor

Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" ranks among LeVar Burton's most iconic roles, but the character's instantly recognizable VISOR was a literal pain for the actor. The ocular device was one of the many advanced technologies in "Star Trek," letting the blind Geordi receive visual information through the electromagnetic spectrum. Geordi's VISOR became one of the defining symbols of not only the character, but all of "The Next Generation." The mechanism lets ...

The Surprising Influence H.R. Giger Had On Batman Forever

"Batman Forever" has gained something of an infamous reputation in the halls of comic book cinema. The 1995 film, helmed by the late Joel Schumacher and starring Val Kilmer as the Dark Knight, was a box office success upon its debut. It made $52.2 million on its opening weekend, which eventually led to a $336.6 million haul in total. However, critics were split on Kilmer's performance as Batman and some fans cried foul over the tonal departure from the gothic visuals and dark tone established in...

Patrick Stewart And Hugh Jackman Improvised One Of Logan's Most Intimate Scenes

The "X-Men" franchise is largely responsible for ushering in the modern superhero movie era as we know it, along with "Blade" and "Spider-Man." That is in no small part thanks to the popularity of Hugh Jackman as the fan-favorite mutant Wolverine, who made his debut in the 2000 live-action adaptation of the Marvel Comics title and kept at the role for nearly 20 years. Jackman's run ended with "Logan" in 2017, and it's widely considered to be one of the best comic book movies ever made.Directed b...
