Joel Schumacher Is Really, Really Sorry About Batman & Robin

Yeah, so are we.

Batman & Robin, the almost completely unwatchable movie starring George Clooney as a nippled Batman and Arnold Schwarzenegger chewing the frozen scenery, is twenty years old this month. Director Joel Schumacher would like for you to know that he feels bad about it.

Review: Funny but Incomplete Comedy Hail, Caesar! Would Be a Great Pilot

4 out of 5 stars.

A new golden age of TV is upon us, the influence is clearly being felt in contemporary movies, and Hail, Caesar!, a clever and entertaining but ultimately light and somewhat insignificant parody about a single day at a movie studio, feels more like an introduction to a potentially great TV series—almost like a parody series in the spirit of Boardwalk Empire or Mad Men more than it is a stand-alone film.

George Clooney Is A-Ok With Ladies Taking Dudes’ Roles

"You’ll see this happening a lot, where they talk about there aren’t a lot of great roles for women. The truth of the matter is there are plenty of these films where you can stop and look and just change the gender and make a really interesting film."

Review: Tomorrowland is a Disneyfied Take on The Disaster Film

A Little Too Preachy and With Questionable Performances, but Great Visuals and Worthy Message

One of the interesting things about Disney's Live Action Films, is the fact that they usually mirror the current trends in Hollywood, and take a family friendly approach to the genre and spin it with a Disney philosophy. Sometimes this leads to good movies (I'll defend Condorman to my death) and sometimes the results are a bit more questionable (anyone remember that Star Wars rip-off Black Hole).

Tomorrowland Scribes Talk Writing Female Characters; George Clooney Addresses Moderation Vs. Censorship

"What if she doesn't get distracted by romantic entanglements? What if her "romance" is with the future?"

"It'll be nice in 10 or 15 years for this not to be a thing anymore. I think we're now in this post–Hunger Games, post-Twilight, post-Insurgent era where these movies make tons of money, you don't even think twice about it, and they're great characters."

Tomorrowland‘s Japanese Trailer, for the Disney Conspiracy Theorist in All of Us

Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is totally in on this too.

Last Monday's Tomorrowland trailer might have brought us George Clooney in a bathtub rocket, but Japan's version actually gives us a little more details on what to expect from the movie, plot-wise. (Batshit absurdity, apparently. If this trailer exhausts you, imagine what it must feel like to be an Illuminati truther all the time.)

Gravity Dropping a “Silent Space Version” That Removes the Score for Increased Scientific Accuracy

In space, no one can hear your Oscar-winning score.

Warner Bros. wants to remind everyone that Interstellar isn't the only space movie that's ever tried to stick to some actual scientific reality. They're releasing a new Blu-ray of last year's Gravity with new features, including a version of the movie that removes the score to drive home the silence of space. Now there will be nothing to distract you from hours of Sandra Bullock's panicked gasping.

George Clooney Investigating Human Rights Abuses by Satellite, Is Basically Batman in Real Life

Real life has far fewer Schwarzenegger puns to deal with, anyway.

Batman and Robin wasn't enough for George Clooney. (Who would want to go out on that note, anyway?) Now he seeks the means to fight injustice in real life with a satellite network that monitors human rights abuses. While already functional, they Satellite Sentinel Project is just now beginning actual investigations.

Gravity Could Have Been Really, Really Different

Allow Us To Explain

Alfonso Cuaròn's surprisingly intimate sci-fi thriller Gravity has been both a critical and box office success, generating some Oscar buzz for star Sandra Bullock. The film had a long road to its triumph, and there were a few narrow misses along the way to bringing us the movie as it exists now. Thinking of just how different Gravity could have been, or how it could have fizzled out before it even got to production, makes the film all the more amazing to watch.

Gravity and Other Forces to Be Reckoned With


Alfonso Cuarón’s ambitious Gravity does not need monsters, aliens, or traitorous humans to strike fear into viewers looking out at the empty black night. All that is required is the silent, lonely expanse of space itself; airless, without aid, and full of its own ethereal beauty. Perhaps the most intense 90 minutes I’ve spent in a theater this year, Gravity presents space itself as the true horror, a place where indifferent forces collide to spell catastrophe for any humans unlucky enough to be in their path. Despite a tendency to become overwhelmed in places by its own sentimentality (or simply by the soundtrack) Gravity is a taunt, breathtakingly arranged film that will likely leave you on the edge of your seat.

Extended Gravity Trailer Gives Us Five Terrifying Minutes of Sandra Bullock Floating In Space [VIDEO]

Don't Panic

The new extended trailer for Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity gives us a bit more plot to go along with the terror we have come to know from previous clips. There is plenty of hurtling through space on the part of stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but there is also a good hint at how their nerve racking ordeal starts, thanks to some tense radio communications with Earth. The film is set for release on October 4, 2013, and will, obviously, be in IMAX theaters and in 3D, to ensure that you feel as alone and uncertain as the characters floating in the vacuum of space as you view the truly terrifying looking thriller.
