New GONE GIRL TV Spot Tortures Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne

Can’t it just be October 3rd already?  I already know Gone Girl will be good because I’ve never disliked a David Fincher movie and I love the book by Gillian Flynn.  But I’m starting to be more and more convinced this will be one of Fincher’s major works.  For me his best stuff is Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Social Network (with The Game, Panic Room, Benjamin Button and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo all being very good but not all time greats).  My money is on this new one joining the upper ranks.  This new TV Spot doesn’t diminish any of that and focusses on the tribulations of Ben Affleck‘s character (be sure to check out the trailer first if you haven’t seen it).

Hit the jump to take a look at the new Gone Girl TV Spot.  The film also stars Rosamund PikeTyler PerryCarrie CoonKim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Gone Girl will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, and will open nationwide on October 3rd.

David Fincher Says He Cast Ben Affleck in GONE GIRL for His Experience with Public Scrutiny; Talks Walking a Satirical Line

Director David Fincher’s Gone Girl is my most anticipated film from the rest of 2014.  I like Gillian Flynn’s book well enough, but it seems to be a fantastic foundation on which Fincher could build something truly special.  As the film’s October 3rd release date looms closer, we’ve started hearing rumblings about what Fincher’s adaptation entails, including more than a few mentions of the word “satire”. The filmmaker recently took part in an interview for the film in which he was candid about his tonal aspirations and why he cast Ben Affleck in the lead role.

Specifically, Fincher admits that Affleck’s experience of being under public scrutiny was an invaluable resource for playing the character of Nick Dunne—a man who becomes the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance—and also discusses how the crux of the film is about “the idea of our collective narcissism as it relates to coupling.”  Read on after the jump.

Most of the Avengers know how to have some fun and the Guardians of the Galaxy certainly enjoy their fair share of messing around, but Batman’s a different story.  Bruce Wayne makes an effort to be cordial and dishes out the occasional smile, but Batman is all business all the time, so between that, his demeanor and his growl, he can come across as a pretty angry guy.

While discussing playing the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck spoke to Batman’s anger issues and connected them to his own.  Hit the jump to find out how Affleck relates to Batman’s rage.  Batman v Superman hits theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Set Pictures Detail the New Batmobile

It’s been an entire week without any kind of photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so how about we blow the dust off with a reveal of Bruce Wayne’s new Batmobile?  Okay then.  To me this thing looks like it was informed both by Christopher Nolan’s films and by the more classic Batmobile designs.  It’s got the militaristic look and jagged edges from the Nolan-verse, but the shape itself leans ever-so-slightly back to the old school design in the way it tapers off in the middle.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The Zack Snyder directed film stars Ben Affleck, Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on May 6, 2016.

Even though Ben Affleck is busy shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he’s still moving forward with his next directorial endeavor, his adaption of the Dennis Lehane novel, Live By Night.  Affleck just recruited Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Elle Fanning to star in the film, which tells the story of Joe Coughlin’s experience going from petty theft in Boston in the 1920s to climbing the organized crime ladder.

Affleck adapted the book himself and will also produce alongside Appian Way’s Jennifer Killoran Davisson and Leonardo DiCaprio.  Hit the jump for more on Miller, Saldana and Fanning’s roles in the film.

David Fincher’s GONE GIRL Movie Ending Potentially Clarified

I’m very much on the record in saying that I’m very, very excited for Gone Girl.  It’s easily one of my five most anticipated films of the year.  I love Gillian Flynn’s book and I’m an ardent fan of director David Fincher, so the fact that I may have to wait another month to see it has me on pins and needles.  I’m not concerned about the film’s ending either, though many people seem to be.  There were some comments from Flynn that Fincher had “started from scratch” in his approach to the book’s finale (Flynn also wrote the film’s script).  Then Fincher offered a hilariously vague comment when asked to elaborate on her statement.  But now we have some new info that may settle the debate (at least until we see the film).

Hit the jump to read about the Gone Girl movie ending.  The film stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris.  Gone Girl will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, and will open nationwide on October 3rd.  Potential spoilers ahead.

Jesse Eisenberg Talks About the Psychology of Lex Luthor in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

When Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel (perhaps it’s actually a spinoff at this point considering how many new characters there are) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there was a lot of head scratching.  But I actually can totally see him in the role.  Leaving aside the completely arbitrary question of whether the character will have hair or not, Eisenberg has an intelligence that reads well onscreen not to mention the fact that he can really play entitled and angry.  Eisenberg recently spoke about the film and, while he couldn’t say much, what he did say makes me more confident than ever that he’s the right choice for the role.  In fact, I think his casting could potentially be the most interesting thing about the movie.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in Detroit under the direction of Zack Snyder for a March 2016 release.  The film also stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams and Jason Momoa.  Hit the jump to see what Eisenberg has to say about playing Lex Luthor.

David Fincher is one of my favorite filmmakers working today, and so it’s with great joy that I greet a new batch of behind-the-scenes Gone Girl images that have landed online.  Fincher’s new film is an adaptation of the page-turner novel of the same name by author Gillian Flynn, and revolves around a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  Fincher has always been leading the charge when it comes to innovative filmmaking techniques, and one of these new Gone Girl images shows the unique way in which he photographed an underwater scene involving Pike.  Moreover, accompanying the images are some comments from Fincher, Pike, and Affleck about the film, with the latter explaining why he thinks it’s the perfect date movie.

First TV Spot for David Fincher’s GONE GIRL Hurls Accusations at Ben Affleck

20th Century Fox has released the first Gone Girl TV spot.  Directed by David Fincher, the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  This is one of my most-anticipated films of the year, and I hope the marketing stays on this level where they’re using Fincher’s moody vibe and sinister tone to sell the movie rather than giving away chunks of the plot.  I have the feeling this is going to be one mean movie, and I can’t wait to see it.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Set Image Reveals a Different Look at Henry Cavill’s New Costume

by     Posted 30 days ago

Judging by some of the reaction to this picture, it appears as though there are some slight shifts away from the established Man of Steel look in Henry Cavill‘s costume for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Not that I can tell.  I’ve seen Man of Steel exactly once and don’t really plan on seeing it again to see if I can spot some minute differences.  This set image (obviously) adds more color to the costume than the official still from last month, and I suppose it’s interesting to see the painted-on muscle patterns in the light of day.  But, on the whole, I think this is a less interesting development than the picture of Scoot McNairy as (potentially) The Flash.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming in Detroit under the direction of Zack Snyder for a March 2016 release.  The film also stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Jesse Eisenberg.  Hit the jump for the Batman v Superman Henry Cavill set image. 

David Fincher Offers a Hilariously Confusing Clarification on the Ending of GONE GIRL

by     Posted 36 days ago

gone-girl-ending-david-fincher

There are very few films I’m looking forward to this year as much as Gone Girl.  Not only am I a huge fan of director David Fincher, I love the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name.  The film stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  Fincher made a big splash earlier this year when he claimed that the ending had been completely changed, stating that he had “started from scratch.”  This upset some die-hard fans of the book (Flynn has subsequently stated that the rumors were exaggerated), but I think we’re in good hands regardless of whether or not it has been changed.  Not only is Fincher a genius, but Flynn herself wrote the screenplay.  I’m sure whatever happens is true to her vision.

Today Fincher hilariously (and probably intentionally) confused the situation by offering a further “clarification.”  Hit the jump for his new comments on the Gone Girl ending and click here for the trailer.  Tyler PerryKim DickensPatrick FugitScoot McNairyMissi PyleCasey WilsonEmily Ratajkowski, and Neil Patrick Harris also star.  20th Century Fox releases the film on October 3rd.

When you sign on to play a superhero, especially someone as iconic as Batman, you’re going to undergo quite a bit of scrutiny.  Warner Bros. was well aware of it and the studio wanted to make sure Ben Affleck was well aware of it before taking the role as well.  However, clearly that didn’t stop Affleck from joining the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as the new Bruce Wayne/Batman.

While discussing his decision to take the part, Affleck highlighted that if he didn’t think he could do it, he never would have signed on in the first place.  Hit the jump for more of Affleck’s thoughts on being the new Batman.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016 and also stars Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

Now that on-location filming for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is underway we can expect plenty of set photos and videos because that’s how these things work now.  Yesterday, we got some of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, and today that filming continues as Affleck and/or his stunt double engage in some more action-oriented material.  I won’t “spoil” what it is even though it’s clearly nothing major, and the footage is unintentionally funny because it’s out of context.  If you do want some possible details on what’s happening in the scene, I’ve included them after the jump.
