Daniel Day Lewis

Recent comments by Diane Lane pointed to the fact that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel would be yet another origin story of the Kryptonian cast-off turned farm boy turned big city reporter; and I and others like me instantly started whining. Well, to add to this story, The Latino Review says that they have a shadowy source involved with the film, and they’ve beaten some more specifics about what we’ll be seeing out of him. Possible spoilers that will be revealed in the film’s advertising eventually anyway below. According to Deep Throat, we will in fact be seeing the planet Krypton, and we will get scenes with Superman’s birth parents Jor-El and Lara. And not only will we be seeing them, but they seem to be meaty enough parts that Snyder is going after big actors to play them. He’s even been hounding the greatest living actor Daniel Day-Lewis to play Jor-El. In addition to Superman’s parents and the already cast General Zod, we’ll also be getting another female Kryptonian. Her name is Faora and she was a man-hating serial killer who offed 23 dudes back on Krypton before she was trapped in the Phantom Zone. The source also says that the crystalline look of Donner’s Superman films will be changed, and this time Krypton will have more of a futuristic cityscape look like Coruscant from the Star Wars prequels. So people complaining that this Superman movie looks like yet another retread of Donner’s films now have […]

What is Movie News After Dark? This is a question that I am almost never asked, but I will answer it for you anyway. Movie News After Dark is FSR’s newest late-night secretion, a column dedicated to all of the news stories that slip past our daytime editorial staff and make it into my curiously chubby RSS ‘flagged’ box. It will (but is not guaranteed to) include relevant movie news, links to insightful commentary and other film-related shenanigans. I may also throw in a link to something TV-related here or there. It will also serve as my place of record for being both charming and sharp-witted, but most likely I will be neither of the two. I write this stuff late at night, what do you expect?

It appears Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis will portray President Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s long gestating biographical film, Lincoln. The role has belonged to Liam Neeson for quite some time now, but delays in the project eventually led to the actor dropping out of contention due reportedly to his age. He’s 58, which is two years older than Lincoln was when he caught a bullet in the back of his head while interrupting a matinee of Wicked on Broadway. It’s also only five years older than Day-Lewis’ age of 53.

For 36 days straight, we’ll be exploring the famous 36 Dramatic Situations by presenting a film that exemplifies each one. From family killing family to prisoners in need of asylum, we brush off the 19th century list in order to remember that it’s still incredibly relevant today.

Whether you’re seeking a degree in Literature, love movies, or just love seeing things explode, our feature should have something for everyone. If it doesn’t, please don’t drink our dairy-based dessert beverage.

Part 7 of the 36-part series takes a look at “Obtaining” with There Will Be Blood.

Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie is still finishing up his rewrites on Sherlock Holmes 2, a film that Warner Bros. has already given a (rapidly approaching) release date of December 16, 2011. But even though the new script is not done, he’s been thinking about who he’d like to take over as the villain Moriarty. Just as it was in the first film — it doesn’t appear to be Brad Pitt.

What could possibly be even better than seeing Daniel Day-Lewis in another movie so soon after his Academy-Award-winning performance as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood? Another Day-Lewis-Scorcese partnership, that’s what. And that’s exactly what audiences are going to get.

Fergie

Ms. Stacy Ferguson, better known as Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas fame, has joined the cast of Rob Marshall’s Nine. Fergie had a small role in the zombie flick, Planet Terror, but has otherwise had no chance to showcase any acting talent she may possess. Nine is a screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical for the Weinstein Company. Marshall was also the director of the 2003 smash musical hit, Chicago.

There Will Be Blood

In my original review of There Will Be Blood, I mentioned how odd it was that a film which shuns being entertaining is so engrossing. On DVD, we see that it is much of the same.
