'Superman Lives' Screenwriter Dan Gilroy Explains What Tim Burton Would Have Done
[Dan Gilroy directing on the set of Nightcrawler] In the late '90s, Warner Bros. was very keen to make a new Superman movie. An up-and-coming screenwriter named Dan Gilroy, whose big calling card at the time was the 1992 sci-fi movie Freejack, was hired to write a script that would be directed by Tim Burton and would star Nicolas Cage as the Man of Steel. It was a dream job for Gilroy and he spent a year pouring everything he had into the movie, right on up to the moment that Warner Bros. pulled the plug on the whole thing. A decade-and-a-half later, Gilroy has made his directorial debut with the truly fantastic thriller Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as an ambitious but disturbed man named Lou who takes on a rather grizzly line of work that involves filming...

Watch: The Real Science Behind 'Interstellar' Will Kinda Blow Your Mind
We don’t know a whole lot about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which is amazing because it’s just weeks away from landing in theaters. What we do know is that it involves science fiction, with Matthew McConaughey and a crew exploring outer space in search of a new planet for humans to inhabit. However, it turns out the science might not be so much fiction after all. Physicist Kip Thorne is an executive producer on the project, and he spent months meeting with Nolan to help the filmmaker get a handle on the real science of space travel, black holes, and wormholes for the film. From scattering matter to the intense gravitational pull of collapsing stars, the black hole featured in Interstellar promises to be the most accurate portrayal of the phenomenon...

Don't Freak Out... Kristen Stewart Is Just Taking Some Time Off from Acting
After being the public face for teenagers worldwide in the Twilight series, dodging the press during her romance with her costar, being the target of Internet shamers after a relationship “scandal,” and working in film nonstop for the past few years, what’s left for 24-year-old Kristen Stewart? According to USA Today, some time away. "I'm taking some time off because I've been working for two years," she told the outlet. "I'm an actor and that's my art form, and because I started so young, I've always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create. I'm going to take so much time off." She elaborated: "I'm going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I'm...

New 'Nightcrawler' TV Spot Teases One of the Most Intense Movies of the Year
If this Halloween you want to go to the movies for an unforgettable glimpse into darkness, don't even bother with a traditional horror movie. See Nightcrawler instead. Dan Gilroy's directorial debut is a brilliant, gripping thriller about Lou (Jake Gyllenhaal), a slightly off kilter man in his 30s just looking for some kind of career when he stumbles across the very real but rarely talked about world of nightcrawlers, which are basically camera crews that drive all over big cities in the middle of the night to film grizzly crime scenes and sell the footage to news stations. What follows is a sizzling descent into understandable madness, all filtered through the lens of the American dream. We first saw the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it got rave...

Why Christian Bale's Role As Steve Jobs Will Be One of the Hardest He's Ever Taken On
Earlier this year, we heard that David Fincher would only direct a movie based on the life and career of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs if Christian Bale agreed to star. Since then, Fincher dropped out and Danny Boyle came on board to helm Jobs, featuring a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin drawn from Walter Isaacson's biography. It's a challenging role, one that will track Jobs in real time during three pivotal events in Apple's history, and now Bale is officially attached to the film, which is scheduled to shoot next spring. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Sorkin spoke about the role, about Bale and why it's going to be one helluva difficult role to tackle. "He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies...

Watch: You've Never Seen Brad Pitt Insulted Like This Before
Fans of Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die show Between Two Ferns are all too familiar with its edgy format, in which the actor (playing a moronic version of himself) interviews various celebrities by insulting them over and over again. It's often very comical to watch, and the guests are always in on the joke -- heck, President Obama starred on an episode! It all feels very much like a comedy roast where one person is doing the roasting, and this week's show featuring Brad Pitt will go down as an all-timer -- a menacing barrage of Brad Pitt insults that are so mean and hilarious, the random Louis C.K. cameo in the middle isn't even the best part. Watch for yourself below... Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis: Brad Pitt from Zach...

Whoa! Watch the First Trailer for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'
Just when you thought you'd be waiting a whole week to watch the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, those devious troublemakers over at Hydra have cracked Marvel's secret trailer codes and leaked a dark first look at what's poised to be one of next year's biggest movies.    Responding to the early leak via Twitter, Marvel had this to say...   Dammit, Hydra. — Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) October 22, 2014   Forget Hydra, this is definitely one of the darkest trailers we've seen for a Marvel Studios movie -- but that just further proves how massive the sequel will be.

The Geek Beat: These 17 Movies Will Guarantee a Geektastic Halloween Marathon

Comics on Film: Is DC Comics Too Late to the Movie Party?
Last week, Warner Bros. made a major announcement concerning the future of DC Comics-based characters on film: namely, that there would be one. The studio has predominantly been hit with a case of chronic cold feet outside the likes of Batman and Superman, but with a series of several new movies confirmed through the year 2020, it looks like it finally has its act together. Still though, in a cinematic climate where the characters of rival publisher Marvel Comics have cemented their domination of superhero cinema, will the studio be too late to the game? Or, will its material bring about a viable alternative to the Marvel characters by offering the likes of the Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, a new Green Lantern, and more Batman and Superman?   On the One Hand:  The...
