It’s nothing new that movie studios like to release their films early in many of the international markets. In fact, it’s almost a given that those in the UK and other select countries will see the big blockbuster flicks before we do. It looks like Warner Bros./DC is following the trend by reserving an early international release date for their upcoming Batman vs. Superman flick. (more…)

Leaked Poster Reveals ‘Batman versus Superman’ Title

With CinemaCon officially wrapped up there seems to be a few dangling threads. Late last week, twitter was abuzz with the possibility that there might be a few reveals trickling out of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel; most notably the big reveal on Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit in celebration of DC’s launch of Batman’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those fires were kicked up a notch when Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara told the New York Times that announcements (note the plural) on a unified DC cinematic universe were imminent.

Well, the weekend has come and gone, and so far we haven’t see any sign of those announcements (save for those Green Lantern rumblings.) But, that might not be entirely true. The folks over at SpoilerShoot.com have posted a handful of pictures late last night from what was reported to be the abandoned launch for DC’s foray into the joined comic book universe market.  (more…)

With the success of The Lego Movie, Gravity, the buzz surrounding the upcoming Batman & Superman team up film and the news that we will see a new trilogy from the Harry Potter-verse in the future, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara is surely riding high, but he’s not Marvel Studios high, and that may be something that the exec wants to change. (more…)

No word yet as to how mere “movies” or pint-sized “cinema” feel about their newly discovered, beastly-sounding kin.

News of Fantastic Beasts’ super-sizing was slid into a New York Times profile of Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara.  This expansion should come as a surprise to no one, as nearly every studio has been chasing after a new YA cash-cow following the end of Harry PotterTwilight, and Beautiful Creatures (wait…). Even when the project was first announced, it was being “planned as the first picture in a new film series.” What is a bit of a shock, however, is that new words had to be added to the English vernacular in order to describe such a monolith of motion pictures.

There’s a new Jupiter Ascending trailer hitting today, but until we get our latest glimpse of the Wachowskis’ Cloud Atlas follow-up in motion, we have two “side of a van” worthy character banners to whet our appetite. One has Channing Tatum flashing his beefy tattooed arms, while the other features Mila Kunis looking like she’s waiting to get admitted into a free Ben Kweller show at SXSW.

Andy Serkis Directing WB Jungle Book

In the case of the dueling Jungle Books, the Warner Bros version has taken another step forward with the hiring of director Andy Serkis.

But on The Jungle Book, Serkis will now be calling the shots, filling the director’s chair recently vacated by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel, 21 Grams). (more…)

Being as the shows are on separate networks let’s not expect CW’s Arrow and FOX‘s Gotham to ever intermingle, but that won’t stop DC and Warner Bros. from continuing to dominate the television superhero gig. Over the weekend it was announced Ben McKenzie snagged the starring role of Jim Gordon for FOX’s new crime drama. Now four more roles have been cast, and some are extremely noteworthy. (more…)
