Movie review: Kick-Ass 2 falls short of the original (with trailer)



presidents in the White House across several decades, the movie features an all star cast, including Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda. It was Fondas presence in the film that earned it two heavy thumbs down from theater owner Ike Boutwell, UPI notes. Can Honda Help Save Americas Drive-In Movie Theaters? Fonda, who plays Nancy Reagan in the movie, is infamous to many veterans of the Vietnam War due to her outspoken opposition to U.S. involvement in the conflict and a 1972 visit to North Vietnam during which she was photographed sitting on a an anti-aircraft gun.

Truly, the days of expecting Lee to appear in every movie based on a Marvel character in some increasingly tenuous, distracting manner are definitely over. our editor recommends Stan Lee's Chinese Superhero Project Scores 'Enchanted' Producer Bleeding Cool reports that Lee told fans attending his panel at the convention that he passed up the chance to cameo in next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past to attend the convention -- or, as he apparently put it, to not disappoint the fans -- meaning that next year's X-flick will be the second in a row in which he hasn't made an appearance (he wasn't in this year's The Wolverine either, as the Australia shooting locale was deemed too far to travel). Lee's Marvel movie cameos started with the original X-Men movie in 2000, with the co-creator of the Marvel Universe going on to appear in all three Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, both Hulk and The Incredible Hulk, the two Fantastic Four movies, all three Iron Man movies, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and last year's Avengers; you've seen him selling hotdogs and sunglasses, delivering mail and judging beauty contests, amongst many other things (He's also been mistaken for Hugh Hefner and Larry King by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in a nice play on the cameo conceit). RELATED: Stan Lee, Nathan Fillion Honored at Geekie Awards In fact, it's only been the X-Men movies that have seemed to have trouble keeping Lee in the picture. After launching his cameo career with X-Men, he skipped X2: X-Men United before reappearing in X-Men: The Last Stand. <br>Read more: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/stan-lee-chooses-conventioneering-x-613636

The film's audience had an average age of about 20 and was more than 80 percent female, according to an analysis of data from Weibo, China's popular Twitter-like service. "When the total market size is big enough, it is possible to develop some niche markets," said Zhang Benhou Kim Kardashian tape from Beijing-based HuiCong Research. Despite the success of smaller films, blockbusters rule at the box office. Revenues from the four highest-grossing films accounted for 44 percent of overall proceeds from about 100 homegrown movies screened in the first half of this year. "More diversity and creativity is needed in our film industry," said Yin. Some relaxation of censorship rules could help. <br>Read more: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/22/entertainment-us-china-idUSBRE97L05Y20130822





MOVIE REVIEW: 'You're Next' is not for the squeamish



"Holy smokes, Batman!" Adam West is possibly the best known of the Batmen. His campy, over-the-top portrayal of the Worlds Greatest Detective led to the popularity of the 1966 to 1968 Batman television series and the first full-length feature film, "Batman: The Movie" in 1966. Later West would voice the character in "The New Adventures of Batman" and "Super Friends." Twenty years after Adam West's Batman came Michael Keaton in Tim Burton's 1989 "Batman." He played more of a dark, explosive Batman, the opposite of West's goofy type. Keaton's performance received favorable reviews, and he became the first actor to reprise the role in 1992's "Batman Returns" with Danny DeVito Kim Kardashian dad as the Penguin. When the franchise changed directors, it also changed actors. Val Kilmer became one of the more forgettable of the Batmen in 1995's "Batman Forever." Kilmer was described as "childish and impossible" to work with. <br>Read more: http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/22/showbiz/ben-affleck-batman-superman





Ben Affleck to play Batman in next Superman movie



Both EzyFlix and iTunes let you register up to five devices, but EzyFlix offers a few key advantages over Apple's movie service. Firstly, EzyFlix supports Android, as well as iOS, Mac and Windows. Secondly, EzyFlix lets you download your purchased movies to any device to watch offline, or else stream those purchased movies straight from the cloud. iTunes doesn't let you stream your purchased movies from the cloud, you need to download them from the cloud first which takes time and is troublesome if you don't have enough spare storage space. Unfortunately there's no way to transfer EzyFlix movies between your devices Kim Kardashian engaged you must download a separate copy of each movie for each device. If you delete a movie from your mobile device to save storage space, you'll need to download it again if you want it back. Apple users can use iTunes to shuffle movies between devices. <br>Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/digital-life-news/online-movie-services-itunes-v-ezyflix-20130822-2sc9i.html





Movie review: Scarlett O’Hara gets Woody Allen treatment with Blue Jasmine (with trailer)



People wanted to invest their money with Hal (Baldwin) because they believed in him. They were also greedy, somehow believing they could get a much higher return on their money with Hal than with an existing institution. When the bottom falls out, itas Jasmine whoas left to collect the pieces a which she packs into those bags and carries around with her for the duration of the film. Each scene offers a glimpse of the salvaged debris, sometimes through pitiless flashbacks of Jasmine at her haughty prime, looking down her nose with honest disdain at the little people like some latter-day Marie Antoinette. Other scenes push Jasmine to confront the consequences of her previous life, with her sister sounding out the beats of her money-muted conscience. British actress Sally Hawkins is lovely as the sweet, simple, solid, ordinary sibling. But she is designed to disappear, as is everyone, in Jasmineas turbulent wake. <br>Read more: http://www.canada.com/entertainment/movie-guide/Movie+review+Blue+Jasmine+with+trailer/8738803/story.html





China's movie market booms with local content, cinema expansion



Jackson says often. And as with the first film, Kick-Ass 2 also goes to some very light, slapsticky places. Itas as if writer/director Jeff Wadlow (working from Mark Millaras graphic novel) wanted to have his cake and blow it up, too. It even dips into philosophical waters, with an interesting though ultimately undeveloped subtext about what it means to be yourself when youare an average citizen by day and a superhero by night. The ego can get a little confused by all the costume changes. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the character of Mindy Macready (ChloA Grace Moretz), now 15 and navigating the world of Millard Fillmore High School. <br>Read more: http://www.canada.com/entertainment/movie-guide/Film+review+Kick+with+trailer/8793968/story.html







Bergman mentioned on his Facebook page that he too had a role in Foxcatcher. Asked about who he portrays in the film, Bergman, a member of the 2013 US World freestyle team, responded, Just an Olympic wrestler - no one specific. Bergman then revealed that a number of other wrestlers had been cast in the much-anticipated movie about the murder of beloved US wrestler/coach Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) at the hands of multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) on the latters Foxcatcher estate outside Philadelphia in Jan. 1996. The three-time NCAA All-American for the Buckeyes mentioned that fellow former Ohio State NCAA finalists Reece Humphrey and Mike Pucillo, along with Keith Gavin and Zach Rey are among the mat stars that have a role in the movie. Keith Gavins Facebook page confirms that the 2008 NCAA champ for the University of Pittsburgh indeed appears in Foxcatcher, all the more appropriate, given that a number of scenes in the movie were filmed at Pitts Peterson Events Center.

Online movie services: iTunes v EzyFlix



The budget for The Scarehouse is about $300,000 in production costs. That much again will probably be spent in distribution and marketing. "This is by far the biggest thing I've ever worked on," said Booth. "Ten times the budget of anything else. And with the backing of a company like Universal, it's really intimidating. They made Jaws and The Fast and The Furious. <br>Read more: http://www.windsorstar.com/entertainment/Home+movie/8829301/story.html
