Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the original TV (and movie) Batman is making a comeback. This fall, Warner Bros. and DC Comics will release an animated feature-film—called Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders—voiced by Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman). West, Ward and Newmar, of course, played the main characters on the 1960s TV series Batman and 1966’s Batman: The Movie.
Just so we’re clear, we’re talking about this Batman:
Here’s the teaser for the straight-to-DVD film, which will be available October 11 (Blu-Ray on November 1):
Who knows, maybe the 1990s nostalgia thing is about to give way to a 1960s nostalgia thing. Discuss
A new, longer look at the upcoming sci-fi thriller Arrival has been released, and it looks like it’s going to be one of the more intense alien movies in recent memory.
Instead of relying on huge special effects and mass destruction (like Independence Day), the story mainly focuses on a linguist’s (played by Amy Adams) effort to communicate with the intergalactic visitors before humanity wages an attack. As this trailer shows, things get tense—fast. The movie hits theaters in November. Discuss
The comedy team behind Talladega Nights and Step Brothers are headed back to the big screen, this time in an adaptation of Sherlock Holmes. The Shake and Bake version follows a string of successful movie and TV versions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective story, including Benedict Cumberbatch’s binge-worthy TV series Sherlock and Robert Downey Jr.’s action blockbusters.
According to Deadline, Ferrell will play Holmes and Reilly will be Watson in the PG-13 comedy directed by Ethan Cohen (one of the creative minds behind comedies including Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder and Get Hard). Discuss
A new international trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One has officially been released. Sure, it’s pretty similar to the domestic version released late last week, but there are a few new key moments added. (Just a heads up, there are some spoilers below.) Not only is there mention of the role Jyn Erso's father plays in the saga, we also get a fresh look at those cool looking blacked out Death troopers. The movie hits theaters this December.
Last week, the dramatic, action-heavy trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story took over the internet. The style of the new film is a far cry from the original movies, with its foreboding score and dark undertones.
But, thanks to the efforts of YouTuber and Star Wars fan Medley Weaver, we no longer have to imagine what The Empire Strikes Back would look like if it were made in the style of Rogue One. Honestly, this kind of makes you want to watch the 1980 classic all over again. Discuss
