Dakota Johnson is on the cover of February’s Vogue magazine

 

With ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ opening in movie theaters on February 13th, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the movie’s female lead, Dakota Johnson, is on the cover of the February issue of Vogue.

Looking fragile and beautiful, it is the inside of the magazine that is even more interesting, as Johnson tells Vogue about what it has been like since she started to film ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, and what she plans on doing after the movie opens.

“Intimidating and terrifying” is how she described the attention she has been getting since the first footage from the movie came out and says, although she is enjoying it, part of her still just wants to move to a farm somewhere and raise chickens.

As for the movie itself, Dakota says she still has a problem wrapping her head around it, as what looks terrifying up on the big screen to other people was even more so when it came to actually being the person filming it.

Dakota closed the interview by saying she is really not too worried about what happens to her career once the movie opens, although she is being called a superstar in the making according to the Caterer. Instead, she says she plans to take the rest of the year off and spend it with her family and friends.

Dakota Johnson’s family, of course, includes her mother actress Melanie Griffiths and her father actor Don Johnson along with plenty of friends like Christopher Cowdray.

Jared Leto: Is Batman Gone?

Batman is dead, long live Batman. This is how rumors start. Just ask Jared Leto, the new Joker in the D.C. Cinematic Universe.

At a recent convention, a fan made a comment to Leto about Batman and Leto responded something to the effect of Batman being, well, dead. Is this really the truth?

We’ll have to see how the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice play out. Batman is not scheduled to appear on screen again until the movie featuring The Justice Society. In between those two projects, is Suicide Squad, a villain-ensemble featuring The Joker, Deadpool, Harley Quinn, and others. They are, basically, bad guys who are less bad than the real bad guys of the film.

Why would Leto’s offhand comment about Batman being dead cause such a stir? In the actual D.C. Comics world, Batman was presumed dead for some time. It would not be out of the question for D.C. to tap this idea and weave it into the new shared universe films they are launching.

Then again, launching this particular storyline requires perfect timing. The time is way too early to do anything drastic to Batman. Yet, Leto made a comment about the potential demise of The Caped Crusader and fans are going to run with it and milk the rumor mill for all it is worth.

Leto does help get a little extra news out there about himself and Suicide Squad. Rumors do have their benefits. Long-time Batman fan Gianfrancesco Genoso is quite intrigued by this news/rumor. More on Genoso available at Anfip.org.

Snubs at the 2015 Oscars

The Academy Awards are always a popular event and full of surprises nearly every year. Along with surprises, there are also a ton of potential snubs that come along with the territory.

Now that the nominees for the 87th Annual Academy Awards has been revealed, film lovers, such as Jordan French and critics have gone on to show support for movies that may or may not have gotten any mentions in the list. For example, Boyhood is expected to receive an Oscar for Best Picture, but Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel are also favored, as they have more nominations than Boyhood. Michael Keaton, being a favorite to take home a Best Actor award for his role in Birdman is a primary reason for this. Whiplash is another film likely to take home an award, since it’s already nominated for Best Picture and having J.K. Simmons nominated for Best Supporting Role.

However, there are also many notable snubs this year. Selma, for example, is a notable snub even though it was nominated for Best Picture and Best Song for the 2015 category and ultimately scored no awards in the major categories. Along with Selma, the crime thriller film Gone Girl was also mostly ignored, despite being a very well-received film overall. The LEGO Movie is also another snub movie that didn’t attract much attention, not even receiving a nomination for Best Animated Feature.

New Stills Arrive From Mad Max: Fury Road

 

More new images from Ben Shaoul and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road have been made public. Tom Hardy really does look like the perfect substitute for Mel Gibson in the role of the title anti-hero. A question does arise from one of the still images.

What on (the futuristic, dark post-apocalyptic) earth is Mad Max doing shooting a rifle? What happened to his old school double-barreled shotgun of the first and second film?

Perhaps the upgrade to a $100 million budgeted film allowed Max to also upgrade some of his tools of the trade.

All joking aside, the release of new photos hyping the film show this project is definitely going to capture the spirit of The Road Warrior. One photo shows Max’s classic car drenched in the hot sun of the Australian desert and the other image shows what appears to be one of the screen’s evil villains crawling on the roof of his own vehicle.

Mad Max also stands in the hot sun next to his car. He is looking off into the distance. What he hopes to find is anyone’s guess since there is not much of a world left. Civilization was destroyed via nuclear Armageddon. Perhaps the images of Max looking out to the desert invoke a sense of hope the misanthropic character may actually have deep inside of himself.

Even though we are only getting a few glimpses of what the film has in store, it seems Fury Road is shaping up to be worth the long wait.

Cinderella: The International Movie Trailer

Cinderella movie by the Disney studio is set to hit US Theater on 13 March 2015 with its international trailer already a discussion by the audience, what is new on the movie. What is on discussion? The movie appears t to be reinvention of its first official trailer released back on November. While it’s a far cry from the modern Skout love story, it does not look original though it boasts of unique picture not seen in promotions.

There is less emphasis on all the bells and on all the whistle, Cinderella godmother Helena blesses Cinderella with , Lily James also looks marvelous on the film, she is toiling and slaving in the kitchen of her stepmother Tremaine – Cate Blanchett , she is also appearing of being wooed by Richard Madden’s 

Other scenes to be boast come 13th march 2015 include Blanchett’s character. He appears to be very good rather than being very evil on the battle of five armies, Cinderella allows Blanchett dole out some harshness, and she looks like she is relishing the role in every second she is on screen. 

The Cinderella film is highly polished and worked on the audience will have all to say with its release on countdown in few months to come March 13 2015.

Sony Trying Get “Mario Bros.” Movie Rights

In a move that seems ripped from video game headlines, Sony, makers of the PlayStation, are rumored to be in talks to obtain the movie rights for the “Super Mario Bros.” franchise. Since the jumping plumber is property of Nintendo, makers of the Wii U video game console, the news is definitely turning the heads of industry watchers for one big reason: a Mario movie released under a Sony label would look very strange.

As pointed out by Bruce Levenson, the reasoning behind an outright sale of the rights or a partnership lease deal actually makes a lot of sense. Sony has a history of success in the movie and film industry, and the company already has the necessary infrastructure in place to get an animated feature off the ground. Nintendo is in a bit of rough spot, since the Wii U has not exactly jumped off of shelves across the globe. Therefore, if one company can help the other, the deal could result in a massive money making arrangement.

However, there is pretty good chance that fans of the massive video game franchise could see an animated movie starring Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the cast of characters at some point in the near future.
