‘Friends’ Sales Rise as the Show Lies in Limbo Between Streaming Services

Breaking news: turns out people still really like watching Friends. The mega-hit NBC sitcom has become a cross-generational juggernaut, resonating with not only the original audience who watched it live, but also with millennials who may not have even been born yet when the show debuted in 1994. Now, with the show having left Netflix and awaiting its arrival on the soon-to-be-launched HBO Max streaming service, fans are still looking for their Friends fix – and they’re getting it by buying the ...

‘The Batman’ May Draw Inspiration From ‘Batman: Year One’ and ‘The Long Halloween’, Could Introduce the Flying Graysons [Updated]

Update: Set photos have been posted online that appear to depict jack-o-lanterns on the set of The Batman, which lends credence to the long-held speculation that Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s beloved comic graphic novel Batman: The Long Halloween may serve as an inspiration for Reeves’ movie. We won’t link to those photos, but they’re out there if you want to track them down. In any case, the apparent Halloween setting may mark the first time a live-action Batman movie has taken place during that ho...

‘The Batman’ May Draw Inspiration from ‘Batman: Year One,’ Could Introduce the Flying Graysons

Since Robert Pattinson stepped into the cape and cowl, it was clear that Matt Reeves‘ The Batman would follow a younger Caped Crusader. But just how early? We still know very few details about the plot of The Batman, but previous reports suggested that the film would show the early days of Batman’s career, barring the origin story that we’ve already seen dozens of times before. Now a new tweet from Reeves hints that The Batman will draw inspiration from one of the most iconic depictions of Batm...

Ben Affleck Opens Up About Struggles With Alcoholism, Why He Left ‘The Batman’

In 2016, it seemed like the future was bright for Warner Bros.’ The Batman. Ben Affleck, who had just made his debut as an older and wearier Caped Crusader in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was set to direct the Batman solo flick from a script he was co-writing with longtime DC Comics stalwart Geoff Johns. But a year later, Affleck would step down from the director’s chair. Two years after that, Affleck left The Batman altogether. At the time, Affleck was dealing with publicly-docum...

Baz Luhrman’s ‘Elvis’ Biopic Adding Rufus Sewell as The King’s Father

Elvis Presley has been prominently featured in a number of films, ranging from the horror comedy of Bubba Ho-Tep to the meeting of Elvis and Tricky Dick in Elvis & Nixon. But there hasn’t been a definitive biopic about the man who was dubbed the King of Rock and Roll. That’s about to change with Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrman tackling the musician’s life, and another name has just been added to the film’s cast. Rufus Sewell (A Knight’s Tale, The Man in the High Castle) has joined the Elvis b...

‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

‘Birds of Prey’ Gets a New Title in Theaters After Underperforming at the Box Office

Birds of Prey may have topped the box office last weekend, but it opened far lower than box office analysts predicted. Even the expectations from Warner Bros. Pictures were nearly $13 million higher than what the movie actually earned. And it sounds like the studio may have figured out what part of the problem is: the title. After being marketed as simply Birds of Prey, and occasionally by the comically longer title Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the new t...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

‘Birds of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson on Writing Harley Quinn and How ‘Trainspotting’ Influences Her Writing [Interview]

DC has been a good home to screenwriter Christina Hodson. After writing Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), DC and Warner Bros. hired Hodson to adapt two other comic book properties, including Batgirl. Based on the glowing reception to Birds of Prey, the studio now has another strong voice behind their comic book movies. They haven’t always this much sense of authorship and crystal clear vision. Birds of Prey is a comic book movie that doesn’t overstay its welc...

‘Birds of Prey’ Video Review – A Fresh, Action-Packed Take on a Classic DC Character

Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has style to spare. The new film features a quirky and colorful Gotham, a memorable cast of characters, and some pretty impressive hand-to-hand combat. All of it is tied together by Margot Robbie, who commits to this version of Harley Quinn with a zaniness and intensity that is irresistible. Even in moments when the movie doesn’t quite work, you can still feel the love and care that was put into bringing these char...

Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Batman’ Will Be “Raw” and “Not Sanitized,” Says Peter Sarsgaard

Robert Pattinson’s Batman won’t be showering in Matt Reeves’ upcoming take on the Caped Crusader. Well, he will metaphorically won’t be showering. Peter Sarsgaard, who stars in the film as new character Gotham District Attorney Gil Colso, teased The Batman tone, which the actor said will be “raw” and “not sanitized.” Sarsgaard appeared on SiriusXM radio this week for an interview and was asked to tease his role in The Batman, in which he stars as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colso, a new cha...

Black Mask and Victor Zsasz’s Relationship in ‘Birds of Prey’ is About Obsession and “Control”

Black Mask and Victor Zsasz are a dynamic duo — in more ways than one. Unlike many mob boss-henchman relationships, Ewan McGregor‘s Roman Sionus, aka Black Mask, and Chris Messina‘s Zsasz, a serial killer with a penchant for face-peeling, are utterly devoted to each other. The pair are rarely seen without each other in Birds of Prey, and seem to have a secret language between the two of them that only they understand. Zsasz becomes violently defensive of his boss whenever he perceives any kind ...

Margot Robbie on Crafting Harley Quinn’s “Origin Story” in ‘Birds of Prey’ and Who She Could Team Up With Next

Harley Quinn is emancipated and feeling fantabulous about it. Margot Robbie‘s breakout character from the 2016 comic book movie Suicide Squad has been in the shadow of the Joker since her inception — and a fan-favorite for almost as long. Introduced as an ordinary henchman to the Clown Prince of Crime in Batman: The Animated Series, Harley Quinn soon shot up to fan-favorite character status, making the leap to comic books and video games before she finally made her big-screen debut a few years ...

‘Birds of Prey’ Review: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun in This Stylish, Hilarious and Satisfying DC Superhero Movie

Birds of Prey just wants to have fun, and damn to hell anyone who won’t let it. A pulpy, kaleidoscopic funhouse ride that feels simultaneously high-stakes and low-stakes all at once, Birds of Prey is as cheeky, irreverent, and erratic as its central character, Harley Quinn — to both its benefit and its detriment. But mostly, it’s having too much of a blast to notice. Margot Robbie‘s breakout character from Suicide Squad finally gets a movie all to her own, and despite its title, Birds of Pre...

Why ‘Birds of Prey’ Took Creative Liberties With Its Comic Book Characters

With every comic book movie comes legions of comic book fans who grumble that the costume doesn’t look at all like the one on the page. Birds of Prey has received plenty of that criticism — not only are the central members of the all-female Gotham team very different from the comics, the movie revolves around Harley Quinn, a longtime Batman villain who has never been associated with the Birds of Prey on the page. But “the desire was to create characters that worked for the screen,” producer Sue...

How Jackie Chan and ‘John Wick’ Inspired the Action Sequences in ‘Birds of Prey’

One of the prevailing issues with recent superhero movies are the clear division between the drama and the action sequences. The comic book movie industry has become a well-oiled machine, and as a result, you get CGI-packed action sequences designed by a VFX team while the indie auteur who was plucked out of obscurity to helm a major blockbuster gets to focus on the narrative and character scenes. But Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan didn’t want that to happen with her comic book film. “It was ...

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ author Kevin Kwan will discuss the impact of his novels in Irvine

Kevin Kwan has reignited the Asian American a voice. His three best-selling novels and the success of his and Jon Chu’s box office sensation, “Crazy Rich Asians” (which, grossed $238 million worldwide), proved that an all-Asian cast was a bankable option for Hollywood. But stardom has not gone to Kwan’s head. The Singapore-born, Houston-raised writer remains a humble guy and “a huge techno-luddite,” who champions a new generation of creatives such as Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng and Constance Wu. B...
