More Evidence Points to ‘Tenet’ Opening Overseas This Summer, Leaving the U.S. in Limbo

Tenet, the movie that keeps getting delayed due to the coronavirus, is now in a kind of limbo. Rather than keep kicking the can down the lane, Warner Bros. pulled the Christopher Nolan movie off its schedule entirely, and are waiting to announce a new date. When the news came that the film was being pulled yet again, it was accompanied by rumblings that Warners would be throwing out the traditional release playbook. Instead, the studio might be considering opening Tenet overseas this summer fir...

Productions Move Forward Despite COVID-19 Surges as Warner Bros. Considers New ‘Tenet’ Release Options

The coronavirus continues to linger, and in my cases, surge. But Hollywood is determined to get back to work. Studios are in the midst of working with the guilds to figure out new protocols to shoot in California, New York, Georgia, and Illinois, even as the pandemic spikes in some of those places. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. is having to weigh its options regarding Tenet, the movie that everyone was hoping would be able to save the more-or-less dead 2020 summer movie season. California has been...

‘Tenet’ Release Date Delayed Indefinitely

In a move that virtually everyone saw coming, Warner Bros. has moved the Tenet release date yet again. The big Christopher Nolan action pic was meant to revive the stagnant movie theater industry and single-handedly save the summer movie season by opening in mid-July. However, as coronavirus cases continue to surge across the country, Warners moved the film first to July 31, and then to August 12. Now, the film’s release date has been pushed back again – indefinitely. Warner Bros. has announ...

Why ‘The Sandman’ Adaptation Could Only Happen Now, and Only First on Audio

It seemed like an adaptation of The Sandman was trapped in development hell for nearly as long as the titular personification of Dream was imprisoned by his captors in Neil Gaiman‘s acclaimed graphic novel series (okay, that was 70 years, but the point still stands). Multiple attempts have been made to bring Gaiman’s weird, fantastical world to the big screen, with Warner Bros. periodically planning adaptations throughout the ’90s, and writers like Roger Avary, David S. Goyer, Jack Thorne, and ...

‘The Matrix’ Cinematographer Blames Stanley Kubrick for Why the Sequels Are So “Mind-Numbing”

It can’t be understated how hugely influential the Wachowski’s The Matrix was. Many a film after it tried (and often failed) to imitate its look, its tone, its groundbreaking visual effects. And the man responsible for the stylish look of the 1999 sci-fi film was cinematographer Bill Pope, who would go on to shoot the film’s much-maligned sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions to less than satisfactory results. There are a lot of things that can singled out for the reasons of Th...

Warner Bros. Goes Looney Tunes by Taking Elmer Fudd’s Gun

 U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- Cartoon characters Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam will be stripped of their trademark guns, CNN and other major news outlets are reporting. “We're not doing guns,” executive producer Peter Browngardt reportedly told The New York Times. “But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered in.” But guns will not be? As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a maroon!” “No mention is made of whether or not that the guns being removed was a r...

The Snyder Cut of ‘Justice League’ is Coming to HBO Max

Fans demanded it – frequently and vocally – and now it’s happening. The long-awaited “Snyder Cut” of Justice League will finally see the light of day on HBO Max. I know – I can’t believe it either. But here we are! We’ll probably never know the whole story about what happened behind-the-scenes – and anyone who tells you they know it is probably lying. But it boils down to this: a lot of the footage original Justice League director Zack Snyder shot for the superhero film ended up on the cutting ...

Michael B. Jordan Will Play ‘Methuselah’ For Danny Boyle

Danny Boyle will direct Methuselah for Warner Bros., with hopes of launching a franchise. And Boyle and Warners have lined-up a great lead actor to get things going: Michael B. Jordan. Early drafts of the script were inspired by the biblical figure of Methuselah, who lived for 969 years. But a “new approach” is being taken now, which suggests they might want to change the title. Variety has the scoop on Methuselah, a new pic from Danny Boyle that will star Michael B. Jordan. At one point, To...

‘Clouds’ Moves From a Warner Bros. Theatrical Release to Streaming on Disney+

In a surprising move, Clouds, a film that was originally supposed to be released theatrically by Warner Bros., will now go straight to Disney+. Moving a film from theaters to streaming isn’t the surprising part – we’re seeing a lot of that these days. But it’s curious that Warners would sell this off to another streaming service when they have their own streaming service – HBO Max – ready to launch this month.

Watch a Screen Test of 21-Year-Old Orson Welles (1937)

We remember Orson Welles as a film director, and given the influence of Citizen Kane, we do it with good reason. It certainly doesn't hurt the image of Welles-as-auteur that he was only 25 years old when he made that movie, now considered one of the greatest of all time. Not only did he direct, he co-wrote, produced, and starred, showcasing a set of acting skills he'd been honing on radio and the stage since childhood. If any man was ever born to give commanding performances, it was We...

These are the first words ever heard in a feature film

“Wait a minute... Wait a minute... you ain’t heard nothin’ yet.” In 1927, Al Jolson spoke those words in The Jazz Singer, marking the end of the silent film age. (Of course, that film also featured Jolson in blackface which unfortunately was common at the time.) From The Guardian: Just a year before (The Jazz Singer), Warners had made Don Juan, starring Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Astor, which didn’t exactly set the Hudson river on fire, despite sound effects like the clash of swords ...
