Hi everyone, Bryan here….

When Ben Affleck isn’t making the next Boston crime movie or saying “Yes” to a cameo role in Kevin Smith’s latest direct-to-video film, he’s reading comic books with Matt Damon and deciding on which next Hollywood starlet to take out for a steak dinner and never call again. The guy is a badass in every sense of the word. There’s nothing he can’t do. I’m just surprised he doesn’t have an EGOT yet. You can say a lot of things about Affleck, but you can’t say he doesn’t know when to say “no”. Affleck announced today that he will be stepping down from his role as director in the upcoming ‘Batman‘ film for Warner Bros., where he will indeed be playing Batman once again.

SHOWBIZ Insider 1

Gillian Flynn has been a celebrated author well before ‘Gone Girl‘ hit the big screen, but she’s not limiting herself to only her works when looking at script-writing opportunities. Flynn is in talks to join a remake project with Ben Affleck and David Fincher.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Director Zack Snyder took to his TWITTER account and released the first photo of the new Batmobile and Ben Affleck as Batman. The monochrome image has Affleck in the batsuit with new Batmobile as he looks menacing. I have to say, it looks good. Enjoy. The Batman-Superman film will be released May 6th, 2016.

It looks like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are brining back ‘Project Greenlight‘ to HBO. If you don’t remember, ‘Project Greenlight‘ was a reality show where Ben Affleck and Matt Damon searched for new filmmakers and writers, ultimately giving the winner a chance to make their own film and distribute it. The show followed the entire filmmaking process. I believe there were only three seasons of this show with the first two seasons revolving around two indie drama films. One of them starred Shia Lebouf and Amy Smart. The third season was the best as they went with a fun balls-to-the-wall horror film with tons of gore. That movie was called ‘Feast‘ and spawned several sequels. It was directed by John Gulager, the son of Clu Gulager. Official press release below.

Ben Affleck Is The Next Batman!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 batman_superman_logo_by_balsavor-d3lkxih

It’s official. Ben Affleck will play Batman in the ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. We previously reported that the next ‘Man of Steel‘ film will feature Batman, but Christian Bale said many times that he did not want that role anymore. We heard a bunch of different names being tossed around, Affleck being one of them. However, I never thought he would be the chosen one. I mean, he’s O’Bannion.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Warner Bros. is developing a film called ‘Race to the South Pole’, which is a true story of two people in the early 1900s who want to be the first person to reach the South Pole, the last uncharted place on the globe.  The two guys in question are Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen, who are from different countries.  They were seen as heroes of their time and it gained national attention to see who would make to the SouthPole first. And Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are producing the film with Casey Affleck, Ben’s brother attached star.

The director who brought us ‘Gravity‘, ‘Children of Men‘, ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien‘, and the best Harry Potter film is now playing with the horror genre, which just excites me to the end of the Earth. You mean to tell me, that Alfonso Cuarón who has terrified us with outer space and women not having babies will take the horror genre on head first? I’m so in.

Jana B. here,

Image: A protester reacts as the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi burns

How do we know what took place when we were not there to witness an event? We wait for the movie to come out. The more common way is we wait for the book to come out, then someone writes a movie based off the actual events. Historical movies make big money so it’s not surprising that a book describing the first hand account of the Benghazi attack is in the works. It’s also not surprising that Paramount is already negotiating to purchase film rights to the book that hasn’t even been released, yet.

Affleck Making a Stand!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 30th, 2011

Or The Stand, actually. Ben Affleck (The Town…though it’s kind of like DiCaprio, I shouldn’t have to tell you.) will write and direct this remake of Stephen King’s gigantic novel for Warner Bros. He’s recently made several flicks for them, like The Town and Gone Baby Gone, but this one will test his abilities.

Hi Bryan Here….

“The workers at a posh Central Park condominium plot to steal back their pensions from the thieving Wall Street billionaire who’s about to get away with the ultimate white-collar crime in this heist comedy starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. Financial giant Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) has just been placed under house arrest in his luxury New York City penthouse for cleaning out his investors to the tune of two billion dollars. Meanwhile, on the complete opposite end of the financial spectrum, Josh Kovacs (Stiller) earns a modest living as the manager of the luxurious building where Shaw resides. Upon learning that the tower staffers who entrusted Shaw with their retirement funds are about to lose their life earnings, and that the thief will likely get off scot-free, Josh recruits crafty swindler Slide (Murphy) to help get their money back. Though the security in Arthur’s condo is unusually tight, between Josh’s knowledge of the building and Slide’s sleight of hand, this ragtag gang of criminals might just have what it takes to get the job done.”

Film Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 17th, 2017

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Again, how old am I? It’s the 25th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The Movie) and is getting a Blu-ray release and for the first time ever – a digital HD release #DigitalVampires.  Joss Whedon sure struck gold with this horror-comedy vampire genre that took place in high school, which spawned one of the best tv shows ever made. With an-all star cast that includes Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, Luke Perry, Ben Affleck, and Rutger Hauer, it’s all vampires, blood, guts, cheerleading, and prom.

There’s a new Justice League Trailer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

At San Diego Comic-Con today, the cast and crew of the upcoming Justice League movie debuted more footage, which looks amazing. Zack Snyder’s style is all over this film, however you can tell where Joss Whedon stepped in. The trailer shows all sorts of actions, characters and gives more insight on just what is going on in the film and where it’s going.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Kevin Smith is everywhere these days. He’s making movies with food that wants to kill you, podcasting in multiple cities, selling his comic books at his retail stores, and even conducting interviews for IMDB at film festivals. “The guy is like MacGyver. No, motherfucker’s better than MacGyver.” Since his last film ‘Yoga Hosers‘, Smith has been making some DC television series on top of teasing us with stories of a ‘Clerks III‘ film and a ‘Mallrats‘ sequel series, both of which I would have sold my Michael Jackson statue to see.

Film Review: ‘Live By Night’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I’m a big fan of Ben Affleck. When he stepped into the director’s chair with ‘Gone Baby Gone‘, he showed the world that he was one hell of a filmmaker that had a strong passion for cinema and how it’s made. ‘The Town‘ was also a gritty crime caper that was well shot with excellent performances, which paved the way for Affleck to twin the Oscar for his best directed film to date – ‘Argo‘. When it was announced that Affleck was going to write, direct, and star in ‘Live By Night‘, a prohibition era gangster film with similarities to ‘Goodfellas‘ and HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire’, I was extremely excited, because Affleck had not led me astray with his films that he’s directed so far.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Town’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 4th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

This Film Review Portion was written by Steve Long: Say what you will about Ben Affleck. I like the guy.  His previous film, “Gone Baby Gone” was actually really great as it was his first film he directed.  “The Town” is his second.  I look forward to more films out of Ben Affleck.  Perhaps a sequel to ‘Phantoms‘??  I kid.

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

a1kazv9rhrl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

4K UHD Review: ‘Argo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Ben Affleck’sArgo’ is a brilliantly told film.  Affleck has come a long way since ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Mallrats‘.  In my opinion, Affleck has gotten better with each directorial effort with ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘The Town’, and now ‘Argo’, which I think is his best yet.  Not only is ‘Argo’ a great film, it has a smart script, good acting, clever humor in a serious and tragic situation, and impeccable period detail that rivals AMC’s ‘Mad Men’.
