‘Incredibles 2’ Trailer Gets to Work Saving the World Again
Disney-Pixar has released the first Incredibles 2 trailer. The upcoming film will pick up after the events of the first movie, and will focus more on Helen Parr/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) as Bob/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) stays home to raise Jack-Jack.

‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing

‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing
After an unspeakable family loss, Zack Snyder left “Justice League” in May and handed the film over to Joss Whedon to complete. However, Whedon was already been working with Snyder to write new material for additional photography. That Whedon was already taking his cues from Snyder in reshaping the film — to say nothing of the “Avengers” credit on his resume — made him the obvious choice to direct the reshoots and steer the film over the finish line.

Since then, “Justice League” producers, cast, and crew have been in lock-step in their message: Whedon selflessly came aboard to carry out Snyder’s vision. Wonder Woman herself chimed in: “This is Zack Snyder’s movie,” said Gal Gadot in an interview with Empire Magazine. “Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”

Lena Dunham walked back her defense of former “Girls” executive producer and writer Murray Miller, who was accused Friday of raping actress Aurora Perrineau in 2012 when she was 17. Dunham apologized Saturday for not supporting Perrineau, saying she was “absolutely wrong” for accusing her of submitting a false report. “Every woman who comes forward deserves to be heard, fully and completely, and our relationship to the accused should not be part of the calculation anyone makes when examining her case,” Dunham tweeted.

What That 'Justice League' Post-Credits Scene Is Setting Up
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Justice League.]

The final post-credit sequence for Justice League teases something at once both obvious and exciting for long-term comic book fans.

Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) has escaped from prison and meets with Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), suggesting that now that the good guys have a team, maybe the bad guys should think about doing the same thing, too.

This is, of course, hardly the most original idea in the world — Lex, you're supposed to be a genius! — so it should come as no surprise to discover that the Injustice Society of the World debuted in...

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson blasted Gop candidate Roy Moore and the political polarization that is keeping him in contention in the Alabama Senate Race. During an appearance on the digital news network BoldTV Friday, Carlson said she was stunned that there would be so many voters willing to vote for someone facing those kinds of allegations. “We have reached rock bottom in our political divide,” said Carlson. “It’s very disheartening to me that people on either side would say that even if the allegations are all proven to 150 percent, that they’d still vote for a child predator.

‘Wonderstruck’ Colorist Joe Gawler on How Film’s Multi-Period Look Was Created

‘Wonderstruck’ Colorist Joe Gawler on How Film’s Multi-Period Look Was Created
Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck,” which screened in the main competition at Camerimage, tells the complicated story of two children, both deaf, growing up in New York during different historical periods, whose paths strangely and magically converge.

To tell this multi-layered story, Dp Edward Lachman, a Camerimage regular and frequent Haynes collaborator (“Far From Heaven,” “I’m Not There,” “Carol”) shot the film on black and white and color film, as well as on digital. Joe Gawler, partner and colorist at New York post-production studio Harbor Picture, who has also worked with the two men, tells how he graded the widely varying footage to give the film a seamless look.

How did you happen to get the “Wonderstruck” assignment?

I’ve had a relationship with Ed Lachman for a number of years. I’ve remastered maybe 100 titles for the Criterion Collection, and they brought on Ed to consult on the color. Ed is a real encyclopedia of filmmaking. I’ve also

Icg President Steven Poster Pushes On-Set Safety, Slams Government’s Anti-Union Stance

Cinematographer Steven Poster, who’s shot such films as “Donnie Darko” and “Stuart Little 2,” and is a former president of the Americans Society of Cinematographers, has been head of the International Cinematographers Guild, Local 600, since 2006. He sat with Variety to assess the state of the organization at this point in its history (good) and anti-union trends at the national level (bad). The organization, he says, continues the fight against the view, in some quarters, that labor is just another commodity.

How many Camerimage festivals have you been to now?

This is my fifth. I’m serving on the student competition jury and hosting the screening of the Icg Emerging Cinematographer Awards. We showcase those films here and around the U.S. every year. I’m amazed at their quality. It just keeps getting better.

‘Justice League’ Fans React to Henry Cavill’s Mustache Removal: ‘This Is F–king Real?!’
Justice League” has dropped in movie theaters but its fans can’t seem to drop the weirdness going on with Superman’s upper lip caused by the CGI removal of Henry Cavill’s mustache. Even Seth Rogen has weighed and tweeted, “This is f–king real?!” “Justice League” underwent reshoots this summer, which ended up taking longer than Warner Bros. anticipated. Cavill was faced with a conflict as a result: he had grown a mustache for “Mission: Impossible 6,” but he obviously couldn’t have a mustache while playing Superman/Clark Kent.

Production Designer Adam Stockhausen on Building Wes Anderson’s Worlds

Production Designer Adam Stockhausen on Building Wes Anderson’s Worlds
Production designer Adam Stockhausen, known for creating much of the fantastical look of Wes Anderson films such as “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Grand Budapest Hotel,” for which he won the Oscar, says he derives much of his inspiration from intensive research.

Working closely with Anderson, Stockhausen most recently designed the upcoming “Isle of Dogs” while also creating the look of adventures inside a video game for Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi actioner “Ready Player One.”

Stockhausen, also known for Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” and Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,” for which he was Oscar-nommed, has achieved a notably quick rise from theater work in New York through his film debut in 2004, working for production designer Mark Friedberg on the surreal “Synecdoche, New York” by Charlie Kaufman.

The old-fashioned stop-motion look of “Isle of Dogs” is already generating buzz.

It’s an amazing story. I’m so excited for it to come along. The actors
