Will The Batman Let Willem Dafoe Be the Next Joker? The Lighthouse Fans Sure Hope So
After seeing the two killing it on screen together in The Lighthouse, many fans are calling for Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe to reunite as Batman and the Joker in The Batman. For quite a while, Dafoe's name has come up often with DC fans discussing dream casting options for the Joker, and he has been depicted in the role many times with fan art. Now that Pattinson will be playing the next Batman, however, the idea of Dafoe playing the next Joker is once again picking up steam, as fans feel the Lighthouse reunion makes the casting that much more perfect.

As of now, there's no indication that the Clown Prince of Crime will even make an appearance in The Batman. With so many villains already confirmed to appear in the upcoming movie, bringing in the Joker at this point might be just a bit too much. Still, if the movie turns out well,

Five Obscure Movies For Wes Anderson Lovers

Five Obscure Movies For Wes Anderson Lovers
Like all great filmmakers, Wes Anderson is a voracious cinephile, bringing together many different influences to shape his own unique style. Over his long and varied career he has borrowed from many filmmakers — his love of Rolling Stones tracks set to slow-motion sequences from Martin Scorsese, his sense of colorful spectacle from Jacques Demy and his oddball sense of adventure from Orson Welles. Side-by-side analysis of certain shots also shows that he directly lifts scenes from other movies — the opening candle-filled credits of The Royal Tenenbaums evokes The Red Shoes while the scene of Willem Dafoe on a

Meet The Cast of Guillermo Del Toro’s Nightmare Alley
There’s quite a cast lineup for the next Guillermo Del Toro movie and thus far it’s including Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Rooney Mara, and David Straitharn. The movie, titled Nightmare Alley, already sounds like a spine-tingling story that’s going to include a very skilled and talented group of people and will likely start filming eventually, with a possible release date by the end of the year if things go exceptionally well, but likely in 2021 as this sounds far more likely. With such an impressive list of talent it’s easy to think

  • MovieWeb
Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for The French Dispatch. This is the latest from Wes Anderson and marks his first live-action feature in nearly six years.

The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Timothee Chalamet, Lea Seydoux, Owen Wilson, Mathieu Amalric, Lyna Khoudri, Stephen Park and Bill Murray.

The French Dispatch” is the 10th feature film by renowned auteur Wes Anderson, and it features his usual stylistic signatures: head-on character shots, symmetrical compositions, and diorama-like tableaus. Those impressive visual features helped his last live-action film, 2014’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” rack up four Oscars out of nine nominations.

“Dispatch” is the 10th feature film written and directed by Wes Anderson, and even if you didn’t know it was a Wes Anderson movie ahead of time, you’d figure it out pretty quickly by watching these two-and-a-half minutes of scenes with their head-on character shots, symmetrical compositions, and diorama-like tableaus.

‘Loki’: Gugu Mbatha-Raw Joins Marvel Series On Disney+
Exclusive: Coming off Apple’s The Morning Show, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is heading to another streaming drama. The British actress has been cast in Loki, the Disney+ series starring Tom Hiddleston as the trickster demi-god and brother to Thor, I have learned.

As is the case with every Marvel project, details about Mbatha-Raw’s role are kept under wraps but I hear it is a prominent character, possibly a female lead. In addition to Hiddleston, the only actor who has been confirmed by Marvel/Disney, Mbatha-Raw joins in the series fellow cast members Owen Wilson and Sophia Di Martino. Marvel had no comment.

In the new Marvel Studios series, Hiddleston returns as the mercurial Loki, the Asgardian god of mischief and everyone’s favorite Marvel villain, in stories that take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with a likely tie-in to the May 2021 supernatural sequel Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

The French Dispatch: Trailer Arrives For New Wes Anderson Movie

David Crow Feb 12, 2020

The new Wes Anderson movie, The French Dispatch, finally has a trailer. Watch it here.

Wes Anderson hasn't made a live-action film since 2014’s sumptuous and melancholy The Grand Budapest Hotel. So his return to the form that made him an internationally beloved filmmaker after six years is both welcome and intriguing. Nothing against his last movie, the stop-motion animated Isle of Dogs, but everything teased so far about The French Dispatch suggests a thematically richer experience. The French Dispatch shot between November 2018 and March 2019 in Angoulême, a small city located in the southwest of France, and it's et to be one of the first releases under Fox Searchlight’s new post-Disney moniker, "Searchlight Pictures."

"The film is a love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th Century French city and brings to life a collection of stories published in 'The French Dispatch' magazine."

Wes Anderson has never won an Oscar, much to the consternation of many indie film lovers. With six career nominations to his credit, he’s certainly a chief member of the Overdue Auteurs Club. But he could cash in that awards Iou with “The French Dispatch,” an upcoming comedy about an American newspaper in a fictional 20th century French city. Searchlight Pictures just released a new poster for the film, which will be released on July 24, 2020. Could this finally bring him into the winners circle?

First Images and Poster for The French Dispatch Introduce Wes Anderson’s Star-Studded Cast

Update: Watch the trailer here.

Ahead of the trailer debut tomorrow, we finally have our first look at Wes Anderson’s highly-anticipated, star-studded The French Dispatch, which follows the staff of a European publication who decides to publish a memorial edition highlighting the three best stories from the last decade: an artist sentenced to life imprisonment, student riots, and a kidnapping resolved by a chef.

Fittingly, The New Yorker (which loosely inspired Wes Anderson in making the film) has been granted the first look, which shows off much of the cast, as well as character details and the detailed, fictional French metropolis Ennui-sur-Blasé that the director brought to life for the project. The first images also reveal a mix of color and black-and-white, as well as the employment of shifting aspect ratios once again, seemingly when the film jumps to the stories within the main narrative.
