Joseph Gatt on How His ‘Dumbo’ Villain is the Darth Vader to Michael Keaton’s Emperor [Set Visit Interview]

Joseph Gatt is used to playing the bad guy. With his striking chrome dome, high cheekbones, and thin eyebrows, it’s no wonder that Gatt has been typecast as a villain. He’s tried to kill Thor as a Frost Giant, and he’s terrorized various heroes as countless Russian mercenaries. But in Dumbo, his villain Neils Skellig (the psychotic hunter and right-hand man of Michael Keaton’s ruthless circus entrepreneur V.A. Vandemere) hits a little closer to home. “I’m very anti-hunting and I’m involved in a...

From The Set: How the New Dumbo Differs from the Original Movie

BEGIN SLIDESHOW From the Set: How the new Dumbo differs from the original movie As far as live-action remakes of classic Disney movies go, some of them have an easier path than others. The likes of Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King have full length movies as their blue prints, but the upcoming Dumbo didn’t have the luxury. Released in 1941, the original Dumbo clocks in at 64 minutes long and features very little speaking roles for humans. Don’t worry though, director Tim Burton has e...

When the first strains of the haunting “Baby Mine” float over the first trailer of the live-action Dumbo, you know you’re in for some emotional damage.

Michael Keaton in Talks to Play Villain in Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’

You either win an Oscar for playing a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself play the villain. That seems to be Michael Keaton‘s career trajectory at least, potentially following up his villainous turn as Vulture in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming with a role as the villain in Tim Burton‘s live-action remake of Disney’s Dumbo. Keaton is in negotiations with Disney to play the villain Vandemere, who takes over the circus and exploits the lovable elephant Dumbo and his mother, accor...

‘Ghost in the Shell’ Spoiler Review: A Cold, Distant, and Familiar Future

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Rupert Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell.) Ghost in the Shell sometimes feels more preoccupied with how characters are framed than what they’re doing and saying. They usually look and sound fantastic, but rarely do they register as real flesh and blood in director Rupert Sanders‘ adaptation of the classic manga and anime. Ghost in the Sh...

‘Ghost in the Shell’ Review: An Adaptation as Cold and Lifeless as a Machine

The live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell is a cinematic cubic zirconia that thinks it’s a diamond. The real thing exists, and is much easier to recognize; even at its gloomy, stylish best, this version is a poser unable to hide its true nature. The 2017 Ghost in the Shell is itself a ghost, a trace of something familiar left behind that can’t quite replicate the sense of being introduced to a strange new world that feels disturbingly close to our own. Though many of the themes inherent in t...

‘Ghost in the Shell’ Early Buzz: A Visually Appealing, Often Familiar Piece of Science-Fiction

Ghost in the Shell may come up short on humanity, but the early reviews suggest director Rupert Sanders‘ live-action remake of Mamoru Oshii‘s 1995 manga adaptation is satisfying eye candy. Some reviews note that the film features another exceptional performance from Scarlett Johansson, although some of the movie’s critics write that the script holds her back a little. Sanders’ second feature may lack a heart and a sturdy third act, but by most accounts, it overcomes some of its problems with st...

Ghost In The Shell Is Gorgeous, With A Really Big BUT! (As In — It's Almost Great, But…)

Much ado has been made of the whitewashing in the live action remake of Ghost In The Shell; that alone will probably keep many from bothering to give the film their business. But we were curious -- was all the controversy even worth it? We mean, is the movie any good at all anyway?? Well, the answer to that is apparently almost. In perusing what the critics are saying, the resounding opinion is that the filmmakers have created a gorgeous, technically immaculate recreation of a cartoon that seeme...
