Director Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) has reinterpreted his share of iconic work over the years, and now he’s the maestro behind the live action adventure Dumbo. The storyline centers on how a former circus star named Holt (Colin Farrell) and his kids (Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins), care for a newborn elephant who has the power to fly. Danny DeVito co-stars as circus owner Max Medici, with Michael Keaton co-starring as entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), the creator of Dreamland.
The just released teaser trailer suggests a movie that should pull on our heart strings, and one has to hope that this film reaches the emotional heights of such previous Burton work as Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish.
Co-starring Eva Green, Dumbo hits theaters March 29, 2019. Check out the teaser trailer and tell us what you think!
Adam West, Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck are among the actors who have taken on the mantle of Bruce Wayne/Batman, and now the Caped Crusader is off to another adventure with Justice League.
This film has been a long time coming, as this super group serves as the anchor of the DC Comics universe. Batman (Affleck), fearing a threat that could be even more dangerous than his recent run-in with Doomsday, creates the Justice League with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller). Although he’s not part of the official movie poster, Superman is also a big part of the Justice League, and it will be interesting to see how this film incorporates him into the narrative.
Although Batman’s vigilante tendencies is one of his most intriguing facets, the gadgets and vehicles at his arsenal also grab its share of attention. Click on the media bar below to hear Affleck discuss the “tricked out” Batmobile in Justice League.
Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, True Detective) stars in American Assassin as Ghost, a former CIA operative who feels betrayed by his country and his colleagues (Michael Keaton co-stars as his mentor Stan Hurley). Ghost’s plans at retribution may lead to a devastating terrorist attack, and it’s up to CIA recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien) to take him down.
Kitsch, who is a fan of the film’s “visceral” nature, got along with director Michael Cuesta (Homeland, Kill the Messenger) from the get go.
“The beauty of Cuesta was he let me do my thing,” said Kitsch. “Any great director has that ability to set you free. It was good even from the first time I was shooting a movie in Santa Fe and so I had to Skype with him and talk about the work and the character and all that. And that was over an hour and from then on it was pretty chill and easy.”
Kitsch was also excited to work with Keaton on the project, and in the audio clip below he delves into a pivotal scene between Ghost and Stan Hurley:
