August 1, 2015: DC Fan Film - "Turpin: Terrible Toys" Kickstarter CampaignPrint

Filmmaker and Superman fan Robert Dodrill has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his DC fan film "Turpin: Terrible Toys" - a short film that takes place in a pre-Superman Metropolis. It follows Detective Dan Turpin as he sets out to find a serial killer who uses toys as weapons.

    My goal with the project is to create a unique and entertaining fan film based on the character of Detective Dan Turpin of the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit.

    You might be asking why Dan Turpin? Or even who is Dan Turpin? As a comic fan (especially a huge Superman fan), and also as an aspiring filmmaker, I have wanted to take on a fan film for quite some time. But I wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to take it, or which character I even wanted to do.

    The project began while I was brainstorming the possibilities of a Superman fan film. I eventually landed on an idea where Toyman would be the antagonist.

Visit the Kickstarter page for "Turpin: Terrible Toys" for more details and to help fund this project.


July 31, 2015: Nicolas Cage Talks About "Superman Lives" DocumentaryPrint

Nicolas Cage as Superman With the release of the full-length documentary "The Death of 'Superman Lives'; What Happened?", Yahoo! Movies asked Nicolas Cage to comment on the film and his thoughts about people now seeing more from the film in which he would have starred as Superman.

    There's a new documentary about the Superman movie you almost made with Tim Burton. Your costume as the Man of Steel is quite something.

    The only thing I'll say about that - because that is such a lighting rod hot topic and if I say anything at all it just seems to snowball - but I will say that I had great belief in that movie and in what Tim Burton's vision was going to be for that movie. I would've loved to have seen it, but I feel that in many ways, it was sort of a win/win because of the power of the imagination. I think people can actually see the movie in their minds now and imagine it and in many ways that might resonate more deeply than the finished project.

    People have really done a lot of imagining about how the film would have looked.

    Tim is the total artist, a pure artist with a real vision, and I've often said that he can create worlds and that's exactly what he does. I saw some of the tests of different characters and costumes for Krypton and they were just so surreal and so magical and beautiful. He's definitely one of my favorite filmmakers because of his originality, because of his vision.

July 30, 2015: Justice League Movie News and Jena Malone RumorPrint

Jena Malone According to the cover story in the September 2015 edition of Empire magazine, director Patty Jenkins is currently in London getting ready for a solo Wonder Woman film, with principal photography scheduled to start later this year. The Wonder Woman movie is scheduled for a June 23, 2017 release and stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.

Preparations are also underway for Justice League, which will start shooting early next year. "Justice League - Part One" is slated for a November 10, 2017 release, while the Part Two is expected to be released on June 14, 2019.

Meanwhile, with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" coming out in March 2015, LatinoReview.com claims that Jena Malone will be playing the role of Barbara Gordon, but it's unknown at this point in time whether she'll become Batgirl or Oracle within the scope of this movie. You'll recall that Jena was spotted on the set of "Batman v Superman" with Zack Snyder in August last year.


July 30, 2015: Limited Edition "Justice League: Gods and Monsters" Soundtrack CDPrint

Soundtrack La-La Land Records will be releasing the JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS soundtrack CD (limited edition 1000 units) exclusively at www.lalalandrecords.com on August 11, 2015. Composer Frederik Wiedmann (FIELD OF LOST SHOES, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS) composed the music for the DC Universe Animated Original Movie available on DVD and BluRay also on July 28, 2015.

"I was super excited to get to work on Justice League: Gods and Monsters with Bruce Timm, our second project together (after Green Lantern - The Animated Series)," said Wiedmann. "When I first saw the footage, I was blown away by how different everything was. Nothing was like I expected. It was a very unique, new take on our favorite superheroes, an invitation for me to reinvent myself a little bit from a musical perspective, which is a very exciting place to start a new project."

Witness a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet - but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. From the creative genius of executive producer Bruce Timm and co-producer Alan Burnett comes an original story where the world's greatest triumvirate of super heroes has distinctly different origins. Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. They are as likely the world's saviors as Earth's despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely "accidents," a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League - but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It's a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?

"Our three main heroes all have a very dark past, and as we get to learn about their backstory the music follows the tragic events of their journey beat by beat," Wiedmann described. "We recorded a wonderful group of 30 strings at East West Studios in Los Angeles (conducted by Hyesu Yang), giving the emotional aspects of the score the depth and warmth it deserves. You will also hear an array of dulcimers and guitars, as well as ethnic woodwinds (performed by Chris Bleth), mostly complimenting Wonder Woman's backstory and giving it a slightly ethnic flavor ("In Another Life")."

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, Frederik Wiedmann came to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a film composer. After a couple assistant positions, Wiedmann scored his first feature RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL for Dark Castle Entertainment, Warner Premier in 2007. Since then, he has written music for a wide variety of feature films such as COMPANY OF HEROS, HOSTEL PART III, THE DAMNED, THE HILLS RUN RED, JARHEAD II, FIELD OF LOST SHOES and many others.

After adding 2 Annie Award Music nominations to his resume for the critically acclaimed TV series GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, he moved onto scoring the brand new Warner Bros. Animation show BEWARE THE BATMAN (Cartoon Network), as well as numerous animated feature films based on DC Comics, such as SON OF BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE: FLASHPOINT PARADOX, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS, the successful Disney Junior feature LUCKY DUCK and series MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND, and the Netflix series KING JULIEN.

Warner Bros. Home Video presents JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS, available on DVD and BluRay on July 28, 2015. The JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS - Original Soundtrack will be available on CD (limited edition 1000 units) from www.lalalandrecords.com on August 11, 2015.
