Warner Bros. has shaken up the release calendar for many of its upcoming films — including “The Batman” and “The Sopranos” prequel, titled “The Many Saints of Newark.”
“The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, was originally expected to debut June 25, 2021, and will now launch in theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
Numerous films, including “The Batman,” have been forced to put production on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic. Movie theaters in the U.S., and in much of the world, have also mandated to close because of the global heath crisis, causing studios to reshuffle movies scheduled for summer and fall of 2020 and beyond.
As part of Warner Bros.’ announcement Monday, “The Many Saints of Newark” has been pushed from Sept. 25, 2020, to March 12, 2021. Continue reading →
Zoe Kravitz has been cast to play in the role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves’s upcoming “Batman” film.
The director himself confirmed the casting, in the same way he announced Pattinson’s casting last summer: via a tweet on Twitter.
Kravitz follows in the footsteps of Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer and Lee Meriwether who all have portrayed Catwoman previously on film.
Some fans may be already know that Kravitz has previously played Catwoman in The Lego Batman Movie (2017). She also appeared in another superhero film X-Men: First Class, as well as roles in the acclaimed action film Mad Max: Fury Road, and iFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and its sequel.
She will next appear in “Viena and the Fantomes” and the TV series “High Fidelity.”
Giant monster animals are on the loose wrecking havoc and its up to Dawyne Johnson to save the world in the first official trailer for Warner Bros/New Line’s action adventure “Rampage.”
The film is directed by Brad Peyton who was responsible for Johnson’s another massive blockbuster San Andreas, which raked in $473 million worldwide.
Set to “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” by the Smashing Pumpkins, the trailer features a gorilla named George who starts growing into a monster size after a scientific experiment gone wrong. Soon after a giant wolf and a giant lizard shows up and all three stomped all over Chicago and starts destroying cities. The mutated giant animals duke it out as David (Johnson) attempt to deliver antidote.
Based on the epic visuals on display in the trailer, there’s good reason to believe this will be another monster hit for the team after the trailer was trending at number one in youtube after it release.
From the story by Ryan Engle, who wrote the screenplay with Carlton Cuse, Ryan J. Condal and Adam Sztykiel, the film also stars Naomie Harris, Malin Åkerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The film is based on a classic 1980s arcade video game of the same title.
Rampage is slated for release on April 20, 2018.
Here is the film’s synopsis courtesy of Warner Bros:
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
