Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Trailer Contains “No Surprises”, Says Alejandro Jodorowsky

Surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s unmade movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune is one of the all-time great “what ifs” in cinematic history, so I suppose it’s only natural that someone would ask him what he thinks about the new trailer that was released for Denis Villeneueve’s upcoming adaptation. And while Jodorowsky had some nice things to say about his fellow director, it also sounds like he was a little underwhelmed by what he saw in the trailer. Jodorow...

‘Mulan’ on Disney+ Has Seemingly Made More Money Than ‘Tenet’ Has in Theaters Worldwide

Today in news that isn’t good for theaters: Mulan has allegedly made more money on its premium Disney+ VOD run than Tenet‘s entire box office haul so far. The keyword here is “allegedly” since the numbers are a bit sketchy, but if reports are to be believed, it certainly looks like more audiences have plopped down their hard-earned cash to watch Mulan from the safety of their homes rather than venture out to a theater to see the latest from Christopher Nolan. All summer, we heard the same st...

‘The Matrix 4’ Style Has “Shifted” From the Original Trilogy, According to Neil Patrick Harris

It can’t be overstated how wildly influential the style of the original The Matrix films were. From their revolutionary tech (bullet time!), to their pioneering of Hong Kong-style action in Hollywood, to those sleek leather jackets that everyone and their mother started wearing, the Matrix films’ visual identity defined a generation. But times change, and 17 years have passed since The Matrix films were on the cutting edge. So naturally, they would shift gears with The Matrix 4, as teased by Ne...

‘The Batman’ Resumes Production After Robert Pattinson Recovers From COVID-19

The Batman is resuming production. Robert Pattinson has been cleared to once again stalk the streets of Gotham City after his positive COVID-19 test brought production to a screeching halt just three days after the Warner Bros. comic book film had resumed filming in London. Variety reports that The Batman production has resumed once again after Pattinson had recuperated following his positive COVID-19 test in early September. This follows recently-published paparazzi images of the actor hang...

Hans Zimmer Directed a Choir Over FaceTime to Create the ‘Dune’ Trailer’s Pink Floyd Cover

With the release of the buzzy Dune trailer last week, director Denis Villeneuve paid subtle homage to one of the past failed adaptations of Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi tome. The trailer featured a choral cover of the Pink Floyd song “Eclipse,” from the English band’s 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. But it was more than just a creepy cover of a rock song that makes the choice of Pink Floyd a surprising fit for the Dune trailer. Back in the ’70s, when Alejandro Jodorowsky famously attempted ...

‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ Will Feature More Shazam Family Fun

Shazam! had one of the most satisfying third act reveals in superhero moviedom, with the introduction of the Shazam family in their super-powered glory. The only downside was that it was too short, with only a few minutes shown of the foster family fighting as their alter egos. But for those itching for more of the Shazam family, fear not: the upcoming Shazam! Fury of the Gods will feature the whole super-powered family in action. In a DC FanDome fan Q&A (via Comicbook) with the cast and cre...

Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Will Have a New Theme and Score Composed by Junkie XL – Listen to It Here

HBO Max is pulling out all the stops for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which got the red carpet rolled out for it at the DC FanDome virtual event. In addition to the starry panel with the cast and crew on the first FanDome day, the second day of the virtual fan event brought longtime Snyder collaborator Junkie XL to tease his new score for Justice League, including a preview of a brand new theme for the superhero film. Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg), who scored Batman v Superman: Dawn of Jus...

Box Office: ‘Tenet’ Hits $200 Million Globally Despite Low Domestic Numbers, ‘Mulan’ Falters in China

Tenet and Mulan are both serving as the bellwether by which the movie industry will figure out how it can move forward amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Warner Bros.’ Tenet as the marker for box office success in the U.S., and Disney’s Mulan as a test on the power of streaming. But a week after both of their stateside releases, Tenet and Mulan are facing major box office struggles — with Tenet hitting a wall domestically and Mulan faltering in China.

‘Batman: Mask of the Phantasm’ Honest Trailer: The Dark Knight Is a Collection of Shapes and Feelings

It’s no secret that Batman: The Animated Series is one of the best adaptations of the DC Comics character that has ever been done. So it should come as no surprise that the movie that brought Paul Dini‘s cartoon take on The Caped Crusader to the big screen is also top notch comic book fare. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm brings a new villain into Batman’s sights, but as the Honest Trailer points out, it’s not long before the Joker rears his painted face into the picture and sends everything into ...

Watch: Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Trailer Side By Side with Footage From David Lynch’s Version

Earlier this week, the movie gods gave us a treat: the trailer for Denis Villeneuve‘s highly anticipated film adaptation of Dune, based on the classic science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert. The book has long been considered to be virtually unfilmable – but that hasn’t stopped multiple directors from trying over the years. Alejandro Jodorowsky gave it a shot but couldn’t get it over the finish line (as detailed in the 2014 documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune), while David Lynch actually succe...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Delayed Until Christmas, Maybe

Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed. The highly-anticipated superhero sequel from director Patty Jenkins is moving away from its October 2 release date, and will now open…well, we don’t know. Rather than keep announcing dates that could change, one report is simply stating that the film will be out “later this year,” while another says the film has moved to Christmas. The other day, a rumor started making the rounds that Warner Bros. was going to delay Wonder Woman 1984 yet again. Now it’s of...

‘The Adventures of Superman’ Radio Series Being Revived For DC FanDome

In case you forgot, DC FanDome isn’t over just yet. The big event celebrating all-things-DC was split in half, with the first installment – DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes – arrived in August. Now, DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse is set to arrive this weekend, and bring with it all sorts of new things for fans to nerd out about.

‘Tenet’ Will Play at a Southern California Drive-In Despite Indoor Theaters Being Closed, Ignoring WB’s Previous Mandate

If you live in Los Angeles and have been itching to see Christopher Nolan‘s mind-bending new action thriller Tenet on the big screen in the safest possible way, we have good news. Starting tomorrow, Tenet will be playing at Mission Tiki, a drive-in located about 40 minutes outside of the city center. But the fact that it will be playing at that specific theater flies in the face of a Tenet drive-in mandate that Warner Bros. issued a few weeks ago. So what’s going on here? On August 24, word c...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ May Be Pushed Back Again, Potentially Bumping ‘Dune’ to 2021

Brace yourself, Wonder Woman 1984 may be delayed again. Warner Bros. is reportedly considering pushing back the Wonder Woman 1984 release date from its current October date to either November or even late December, which would bump Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated Dune adaptation to 2021. These rumblings come in the wake of Tenet hitting the U.S. prior to the New York and Los Angeles markets opening their theaters. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. will likely move Wonder Woman 1984 fr...

‘Dune’ Trailer Breakdown: A Closer Look at Denis Villeneuve’s Jaw-Dropping Adaptation

Director Denis Villeneuve has given Dune the blockbuster treatment, and today’s newly released trailer makes it look like one of the biggest movie events of 2020. But if you’ve never read Frank Herbert’s 1960s sci-fi classic, there’s a good chance you were bowled over by the visuals in that trailer but were left wondering what exactly is happening in this story.

‘Dune’: Director Denis Villeneuve’s Two Conditions for Making the Movie, and Why the 55-Year-Old Story is “More Relevant Than Ever”

Denis Villeneuve is one of the most exciting filmmakers working today, and it looks like his hot streak is going to continue with his next big movie. As of a few weeks ago, the filmmaker behind Arrival, Sicario, and Blade Runner 2049 was still hard at work on Dune, the first part of a planned two-movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s massively influential 1960s sci-fi novel. But even though he’s in a self-described “sprint to finish the movie” before its December release date due to complications...

‘Dune’ Trailer: Denis Villeneuve’s Visionary Take on the Sci-Fi Classic Looks Truly Epic

Frank Herbert’s seminal 1965 science fiction novel Dune has long been considered a dense, sprawling, essentially unadaptable narrative, with the wreckage of several mediocre-to-disastrous attempts serving as a warning about the perils of trying to bring this story to the big screen. But it looks like director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Sicario) has finally done the story justice, because the film’s first trailer has arrived, and wow, this thing rules. Feast your eyes on one of the bes...

WB Says Ray Fisher Isn’t Cooperating with ‘Justice League’ Investigation, But Fisher Fires Back: WB is Playing “A Sad and Desperate Game”

Strap in, folks, because in the words of The Dude from The Big Lebowski: “This is a very complicated case…lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous.” Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in 2017’s Justice League, has spent this summer bringing forth allegations that there was a “toxic and abusive work environment on the set” of that film – specifically calling out Joss Whedon (who stepped in to direct reshoots after Zack Snyder left the production) and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. A few weeks...

‘Dune’ Teaser: See New Footage Ahead of Tomorrow’s Full Trailer

Those lucky enough to see Tenet in theaters have been treated to the first footage from Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune. Weirdly enough, it’s actually a theatrical teaser that announces the impending arrival of the full trailer, which will show up online tomorrow, September 9. But since not a lot of people are going to the movies right now, Warner Bros. has provided a different sneak peek at the movie with a Dune teaser that has a snippet of f...

‘Dune’ Director Denis Villeneuve Actually Thinks David Lynch’s Version is Pretty Good

Director David Lynch’s Dune is among the most famous box office bombs in Hollywood history. The eclectic filmmaker behind films like Mulholland Dr and Blue Velvet did not have final cut on his film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, and Lynch even had his name removed from a version of it that was later edited for television. Seeing the film morph into something beyond his control was clearly a painful experience for him, but the finished version wasn’t a total loss – in fact, new...

‘Tenet’ Spoiler Review: Christopher Nolan Creates Stunning Action in a Frustrating, Muddled Movie

Note: I saw Tenet at a press screening with about four other people, total. We all kept our distance from one another, and as far as I can tell, we all kept our masks on for the entire time. It was a seemingly safe situation, but I cannot in good conscience tell you you must run out to the nearest movie theater anytime soon. It’s my job to cover this film and cover it I shall. But please be safe out there, and don’t put yourself – or the people around you – in any unnecessary risk for the sake ...

All Eyes (and Ears) Are Back On ‘Tenet’ Yet Again as the Latest From Christopher Nolan Finally Opens in the U.S.

All summer, the same story: Tenet will fix things. Tenet will hail the return to movie theaters, and save them from bankruptcy in the process. Tenet will be the solution to the problem…if only it could open. Of course, nothing went according to plan. The planned July release date came and went. So did the August release date. Now, Christopher Nolan‘s big blockbuster has opened overseas, and is finally gearing up to arrive on American shores. Which means attention has been refocused onto the mov...

‘Matrix 4’ is a “Beautiful Story”, According to Beautiful Man Keanu Reeves

The Matrix 4 remains mysterious – we really don’t know much about it officially, although plenty of rumors run rampant. So whenever there’s some insight into the production – no matter how minuscule – we’re required by law to report it to you, dear reader. Recently, Keanu Reeves (who is in the film), and Hugo Weaving (who isn’t), dropped some knowledge on the project, so let’s all obsess over it, shall we? Hugo Weaving will not be back for The Matrix 4. The former Agent Smith wanted to be a ...

‘Dune’ is About Exploited People Saying “Enough is Enough”, According to Oscar Isaac

There’s a lot going on in director Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune. Based on the epic sci-fi novel from Frank Herbert, the story is not exactly what you’d call “simple,” which is why it’s not been the easiest material to bring to the screen. But in case you think this is just going to be a piece of big mindless blockbuster spectacle, the folks involved with the film want you to know that Dune has a lot on its mind. In a new interview, both Villeneuve and star Oscar Isaac talk about the themes that audi...

‘Project Power’ Directors to Helm ‘Nemesis’, a Revamped Film Adaptation of Mark Millar’s Comic

Way back in 2009, before comic book writer Mark Millar had even completed his comic, Nemesis, he was talking about its movie potential. The story, which boils down to “what if, instead of becoming a superhero, a genius billionaire embraced anarchy and became the world’s worst supervillain?”, unquestionably had a hell of a hook, and Hollywood spent years trying to adapt it into a film, with directors like Sam Raimi, Guy Ritchie, Tony Scott, and Joe Carnahan potentially directing at various point...
