  1. Rahul Dholakia directorial 'Raees' starring Mahira Khan and Shah Rukh Khan hit the screens in 2017
  2. The heartthrob of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan has donned many avatars in his movies over the years, however, the one role noticeably missing from his repertoire is that of a cop. At a recent event, Umang: A Mumbai Police Welfare Fund's Initiative, Hrithik expressed his desire to someday, essay the role of a police officer. Acknowledging the efforts of the Mumbai Police, the War star said, "Mumbai is one of the best cities to live in and it is because of the Mumbai police force. I couldn't make it to Umang 2019 last year but this year I made sure that I come here. I am feeling wonderful performing at a stage for all the policemen who work for us day and night and keep us safe." View this post on InstagramThis oneâs all about the iphone. #ShotonIPhonePro . Good morning !A post shared by (@hrithikroshan) He also said that the role of a cop is one that he has been wanted to play for a long time. "In my entire life, I have essayed all kinds of roles. However, I haven't got a chance to play the character of a policeman. I would urge the filmmakers to write a police officer's role for me because that will be the most challenging role of my life. I am sure I will make it the best role of my life," he added. Don't know about you guys, but we think Hrithik, as a badass cop, beating the crap out of goons and criminals will be a sight to behold. Well, it this happens, looks like our beloved Singham and Simbaa will have some tough competition. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  3. 1917, is one of the best war-films released in 2019 across the globe and on 17 Jan, 2020 in India, that is sweeping the award season this year. But the reason why 1917 is so unique is that the film design makes the viewer believe that everything was shot in one single cut. Set in April 1917, the film takes place during the first World War. Germans have retreated back from the French territory mysteriously and without warning, later, it's found out that it's a trap set by the Germans. The British Battalion of 1600 men set to attack the Germans on the Hindenburg Line the next morning could potentially lose their lives in this trap. The film follows the mission of two soldiers Dean-Charles Chapman as Lance Corporal Blake and George MacKay as Lance Corporal Schofield who are asked to deliver the message to the battalion and further asking them to stand down. The pair has to cross the vast "no man's land" filled with the debris of dead soldiers and scavengers feasting on these bodies. © DreamWorks Pictures This anti-war film doesn't follow the generic format of the war-genre with a redemptive arc for the protagonist. Instead, the film focuses on making this mission an experiential one. You'll feel like following the two soldiers. Directed and co-written by Sam Mendes, the film features Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch among others in pivotal roles. With stunning visuals and exceptional narrative, the film has historical roots but is certainly not based on a true story. Here are seven real-life historical connections with the film that make the narrative even more compelling. © DreamWorks Pictures 1. Sam Mendes's grandfather, Alfred H. Mendes served as a soldier in World War 1 for the British army on the Western Front and was sent on a mission in which he had to traverse across the âno man's landâ. However, the plotline in this film is largely inspired by his experience and the characters are fictional. The mission was written by the scriptwriters and most events are fabricated versions of the real-life event. The narrative to save a soldier's brother and his entire battalion is an incredible tale but it's important to note that the story is necessarily not a true one. © DreamWorks Pictures 2. It's true that the Germans obliterated everything in their wake, that could potentially be used by the Allies while retreating, creating a vast âno man's landâ. Roads, bridges, and water pipes were all destroyed in case the Allies moved forwards. Instead, booby-traps and barbed wire were set up which is represented in the extremely authentic set design in 1917. Itâs partly based on real-life events. © DreamWorks Pictures 3. In real life, Mendes's grandfather was given the Military Medal after volunteering to locate soldiers during the Battle of Passchendaele. This instance inspired the discussion between the two soldiers in the film about the honour of a military medal. McKay's character had received one and claimed it as a "piece of tin" that he traded for wine when he was thirsty. While Chapman's character held it as a symbol of pride and was rather excited to receive one. © DreamWorks Pictures 4. During the war, these trenches went on for miles of complicated twists and turns. The trenches on the Western Front were a pivotal feature of WWI and were created with as much accuracy as possible in the film. They hired a British Army veteran, Paul Biddiss, to act as a technical adviser to make these trenches in the film look as authentic as possible. The crew had dug about 2,500 feet of trenches by the end of it. © DreamWorks Pictures 5. In the timeline that this movie is set up, in real time, the First Battle of Passchendaele (or the Third Battle of Ypres) was underway. The battle that occurs in the film is heavily modeled on the Battle of Poelcappelle, which took place during the previously mentioned battles. This battle too was based on misleading information, much like it was in the movie. During this battle, the Allies thought they had an advance, but in reality, they did not. © DreamWorks Pictures 6. The background characters in the film are seen passing time by performing certain actions that were actually done by soldiers as they 'waited' for the battle to take place. Army Veteran, Paul Biddiss lent his expertise in assigning them tasks or leisure activities possible at the front. These included using candles to kill lice, filling sandbags, or even playing chess with buttons. © DreamWorks Pictures 7. 6 April, 1917, the date the film is set is based on the events that took place on 5 April. During the war, the Germans moved their troops to the Hindenburg Line along the Aisne River. The dispute between the Allies seeing it as a 'retreat' and the Germans seeking resources and a better location was actually based on real events. Besides, 6 April was the date that the Americans entered the war. Source: SCREENRANT View the full article
  4. Disney drops 'Fox' name from 20th Century film studio: reportsNEW YORK: Disney will rename 20th Century Fox to distance its legendary film studio from the assets of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, US media reported Friday. The entertainment conglomerate last year acquired most of the assets of 21st Century Fox group, including the film house, while former owner Murdoch and his shareholders kept several TV channels, including Fox News. Variety magazine reported that the entertainment giant decided to rename its subsidiary to remove all links with Fox due to the ultra-conservative image of Murdoch and his Fox News channel — the preferred news source of President Donald Trump. Disney's decision is a symbolic step for one of Hollywood´s founding studios, which began production in 1914 and merged with 20th Century Pictures in 1935. The Fox Searchlight studio, 20th Century Fox's younger sibling, will also be rebranded as Searchlight Pictures. Disney has yet to decide on the fate of television studios 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television, according to Variety. Disney did not respond to AFP's request for comment.
  5. Under-fire Deepika Padukone visits temple, prays for new film 'Chhapaak'MUMBAI: Bollywood's top actress was snapped praying in a temple on Friday ahead of the release of her new film as a storm continued to rage over her attendance at a recent student protest. The presence of Deepika Padukone, 34, at the demonstration in New Delhi on Tuesday broke with the unspoken tradition of Bollywood stars remaining for the most part apolitical. It unleashed a furore on social media with detractors accusing the actress of a publicity stunt to promote her latest role as an acid attack survivor, while others applauded her courage. On Thursday Smriti Irani, a former model and TV actress who is now a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's cabinet, accused her of being unpatriotic. Padukone was "standing with people who celebrate every time a CRPF jawan is killed," Irani said, referring to an Indian paramilitary soldier. Members of Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have called for a boycott of her film Chhapaak (Splash), which came out on Friday. They have urged moviegoers to watch Tanhaji, a swashbuckling historical epic about a Hindu general, instead. Padukone was attending a protest after an attack blamed on a group close to the BJP at a Delhi university last Sunday injured 34 students while police allegedly stood by. The incident followed several weeks of protests nationwide against a new citizenship law during which police have been accused of using excessive force, with at least 25 people killed. Media reports said that Modi's government has also shelved a promotional video featuring Padukone in which she speaks about the need to give acid attack survivors equal opportunities. Meanwhile two Indian states and one union territory run by the main opposition Congress party have cut government taxes on tickets for Padukone's film.
  6. Fatima Sana Shaikh dismisses reports of signing film with Shah Rukh KhanBollywood actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has dismissed reports of signing any film with Shah Rukh Khan. In a recent interview, the Dangal actress said she had not signed a film with Shah Rukh Khan yet. Fatima said working with SRK was her biggest film dream, however, she does not know that something like this is on the cards. Earlier, there were reports that The Thugs of Hindostan actor was being considered for the female lead role opposite Khan in the upcoming film Salute. Fatima Sana made her Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan in Dangal in 2016. She also worked with him in Thugs of Hindostan. Fatima is a fan of Shah Rukh Khan and once she had admitted that she was dying to work with the superstar.
  7. Salman Khan announces his next film ‘Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali’Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has announced his next film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali after Radhe.

  8. Siddhant Chaturvedi isn't exactly a sneakerhead when compared to the rest of his brethren from the B-town. As opposed to most Bollywood celebs who have often been seen wearing some of the most flamboyant and unhinged sneakers ever made, Siddhant has much subtler preferences and poised taste when it comes to footwear. © Instagram/siddhantchaturvedi That being said, he does know how to make a statement or two, even with some really basic sneakers. © Viral Bhayani At the premiere of Deepika Padukone and our January 2020 cover star, Vikrant Massey's upcoming film, Chapaak, Siddhant was spotted wearing one of the coolest and most understated pairs of chunky white sneakers. Well to be honest, they kind of looked like a pair of sneakers that children wear to their schools on PT days, which make them even cooler. © Viral Bhayani First, let's get to the rest of his outfit. Siddhant is wearing a rather simple and laidback salamander orange crewneck sweatshirt from Jack & Jones, and rather sombre and classic pair of denim jeans from Levi's. The slim-fitting denim and the sweatshirt look rather dope on him and further add to the boy-next-door charm that the actor has. © Viral Bhayani As for his accessories, Siddhant's decision to keep it simple is actually a good one. When you've got an outfit as basic as this, you don't need to put on every watch, bracelet, and wristband that you've ever owned. A simple and tastefully made watch is sufficient. © Viral Bhayani Finally, coming to the sneakers themselves, they are a pair from Skechers, and legit look like one of those pairs of sneakers that students wear to their PT days. © Viral Bhayani That being said, the sneakers, with their chunky soles, and black and white lace loops do look cool, and make for a really hipster-looking pair of dad-sneakers. This just goes on to show how normcore has become the new norm. © Viral Bhayani All we'll say is that Siddhant does make a compelling case for dressing down for a grand event. Hats off, man, take a bow. View the full article
  9. Prime Minister Imran Khan, in an old video that has resurfaced recently, revealed that he was offered to work in Bollywood by renowned Indian actor Dev Anand. However, he rejected to do so. During an interview in a TV show titled India Questions, in 2006, PM Imran was quizzed about having thought of joining Bollywood. To this, he replied with a grin stating, ”You won't believe it, I was asked by one great Indian actor who we all used to look up to. Who in fact, even turned up in England to ask me to act in a film. But you know I was puzzled." The premier then raised questions about who made him the intriguing offer, and why did he turn it down. At first, PM Imran didn’t reveal the name and said, "I won't name him because it'll be embarrassing." However, the 1992 World Cup victor skipper, on insistence confirmed that it was none other than Dev Anand. “But for me, it's strange. Just because I'm playing cricket, how can I become an actor? It makes no sense to me," he said. PM Imran also shared, “In fact, Ismael Merchant once asked me to act in a film. But again, I was always puzzled, how can I act? I couldn't even act in a school play, forget about going into films." The incident has also been mentioned in Dev Anand’s 2007 autobiography Romancing with Life.
  10. Dawn Chief Executive Hameed Haroon (L) and film director Jamshed Mehmood Raza, known popularly as 'Jami' (R). Geo.tv/FilesKARACHI: Film director Jamshed Mehmood Raza, known popularly as 'Jami', has accused Dawn Chief Executive Hameed Haroon of rape, an allegation that Haroon categorically denied through a statement issued Monday, terming it "simply untrue and intentionally fabricated". Jami had first come forward in October earlier this year, saying he was "brutally raped by a very powerful person in our media world”. He had said he was speaking up to show solidarity with survivors of sexual violence and the #MeToo movement. At that time, he had refrained from naming the alleged perpetrator but claimed that he (the perpetrator) belonged to the media industry. In a Twitter thread on Saturday, Jami named Haroon as his rapist and said: "Im ready now. R u ready to print this @dawn_com?" However, Haroon "categorically [denied] the allegation of rape" in his statement and announced that he was "initiating legal action to clear my name and reputation, and to safeguard the freedom of the press". "But since I had not been specifically named in the [earlier] tweets, I was advised, that even though I had a fair idea of who was prompting Jami Raza, I should exercise restraint until I was specifically named. On 28th December, Jami Raza specifically named me and it has therefore become necessary to respond," he added. The Dawn CEO also "unequivocally condemn[ed] such dastardly acts" and said he "always demonstrated sympathy and support" for victims. However, he also talked of false allegations "leveled by powerful groups to serve their own social and political agendas with the calculated motive of destroying the reputation and dignity of a person". He noted that he was "convinced that the false and malicious allegation has been leveled at the instigation of powerful interests in the state and society who, for their own motives and the promotion of their own repressive narrative, wish to destroy my credibility and as a consequence thereof, the credibility of the newspaper group that I am associated with". "So far as the tweets and some newspaper reports are concerned, I am initiating legal action to clear my name and reputation, and to safeguard the freedom of the press by bringing to justice all those responsible for these false and malicious allegations against me," he added. In a statement responding to Haroon, Jami rejected the assertion that he was acting on behalf of anyone by accusing Haroon. "I'm from a family where we don't use any illegal means to serve any purpose at all. Rest we will see in court. This is for victims and survivors. We put our neck out (because) #metoo died here in Pakistan (because) of all these dirty tricks," he said in a statement posted on Twitter.
  11. Akshay Kumar's latest film Good Newwz is facing legal trouble just after its release. A PIL (Public Interest Litigation) has been filed in Karnataka High Court against the film asking a stay on its release, over the plot of the film. The film revolves around a story of two couples who opt for IVF to have a child through a private clinic and accidentally the sperms interchange. According to News18, A Mysuru-based NGO has filed the PIL and the petition calls the subject of the film misguiding and also makes the audience believe that IVF centers often makes such mistakes. View this post on Instagram The Batra's are coming to spread some cheer, this Christmas ð#3DaysToGoodNewwz #KareenaKapoorKhan @diljitdosanjh @kiaraaliaadvani #GoodNewwzThisFriday A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Dec 23, 2019 at 10:23pm PST The petition says, "The movie is about two childless couples, who come for IVF treatment, and the sperms get exchanged. This is bound to create a lot of confusion and uncertainty about the credibility of IVF treatment itself. As childless couples are already under immense social and psychological pressure, this may further cause emotional disturbance for them." It also says, "The lead actors of this film are endorsing that this type of mix-up does not happen at Indira IVF Center, which creates doubts in the minds of people about the credibility of other IVF treatment centers across India. The petitioner has absolutely no reservation for somebody making an effort to increase the credibility of Indira IVF but not at the cost of the others in the field. This is the wrong type of product placement.” The petitioner, Mir Sameem Raza said, "It may be a fictional movie. But the plot is evident that there is a sperm mix up. By endorsing only one IVF center, it is indirectly saying that mix-ups happen a lot in other IVF centers. Hence, we have petitioned for a stay.” The film has already been released in the theatres and has been well-received by the audience. View the full article

  16. Vidya Balanâs Kahaani became a massive hit, courtesy her brilliant character, a gripping story line and of course great direction work. One particular thing that stood out in the movie was the character of the innocent, naïve looking LIC agent Bob Biswas who is a cold blooded murderer in reality. Played effortlessly by actor Saswata Chatterjee, Bobâs character stayed on with the audience long after the movie was over and the credits rolled out. Turns out that the craze of Bob Biswas has gripped the makers as much as the audience and now after years since the movie released, it has been announced by none other than SRK that Bob Biswas is all set to have his own spin-off movie now. The movie is being produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and while the news of this movie is exciting to us, sadly, Saswata is not going to reprise the role, ironically made famous by him. Actor AbPhoto: © YouTube (Main Image)hishek Bachchan is going to step in his shoes now.

I honestly feel bad for #SaswataChatterjee upon hearing the news of #BobBiswas getting its own spin off! A character, with such limited screen time had such a lasting impact with audiences as the antagonist. I guess itâs the sad reality of pitching a scalable film! pic.twitter.com/qMo21PL8RX â ANMOL JAMWAL (@jammypants4) November 25, 2019 @greatbong Abhishek Bachchan to portray #BobBiswas in upcoming movie.

Your thoughts? pic.twitter.com/tOCcHLuguk â dorian (@stoicola) November 25, 2019 In fact, some fans are so upset with the makers and the general trend on Bollywood riding money on only A-listers, that people got #RIPBobBiswas trending.

  19. It's not everyday that you meet your idol and they end up recognising you and your talent. Rajkummar Rao's is one underdog story which is now an inspiration to millions of young talented individuals who are trying to make it to the big screen, struggling every day in the 'city of dreams' and maybe even trying to catch a glimpse of King Khan outside Mannat. Not long ago, Rajkummar, a self-proclaimed SRK fan himself, was doing the same. The actor worked his way up until his talent spoke for him. View this post on Instagram Filmy Ganon ke Rang, RaghuRukmini ke sang. #MadeInChina #IndiaKaJugaad @imouniroy A post shared by RajKummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Oct 18, 2019 at 9:54am PDT He has often posted about his love for Shah Rukh Khan, impersonated him many times and even danced to his songs. So it was only natural for him to be bewildered and in awe of him when SRK recently bumped into him and funnily said 'Vicky Pleej' to Rajkummar. In case you're not aware, it is a famous dialogue from Rajkummar's movie Stree and went viral when the movie was released. View this post on Instagram Since childhood I've been saying his dialogues. What a wonderful feeling when he decides to say my dialogue this time. There's is no one like you @iamsrk sir. You've inspired me to become an actor. Biggest fan ever. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ #Stree A post shared by RajKummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Nov 9, 2019 at 8:41pm PST The funny chemistry between these two 'Raj' has got all their fans hooting to see them work together in a film now. Super amazing video, Rajkummar. You guys should get together for a movie. I even have a story! — Kulpreet Yadav (@Kulpreetyadav) November 10, 2019 While SRK is on a sabbatical from working in movies and was recently seen on David Letterman's show as his guest, Rajkummar is currently soaring high on the success of Made In China which was recently released.

  20. “Hum aapki khubsoorti ka raaz hai, aapke sarr ka permanent taj hai,” - yes, the narrator is talking about your hair and the very quirky voiceover by Vijay Raaz, in the beginning, sets the whole mood for Bala, and you are assured that what you have signed up for is not some half-baked dish. Amar Kaushik's new movie, which highlights the ordeal of a prematurely-balding young man, asserts on how our society is obsessed with one's appearance and almost neglects everything else, irrespective of how one is from the inside. Interestingly, the movie kills two birds with one stone as it's not only talking about the woes of a man who has lost his hair at the age of 25 but also targets the unhealthy obsession with fair skin, particularly for women. From attacking age-old, bizarre 'solutions' that help you make your hair grow back (like applying cow dung on your head!) to how fairness creams are being sold by luring darker-skinned people, the movie touches all aspects of our society's obsession with 'looking beautiful', without paying heed to the cost it comes at. © Maddock Films Ayushmann Khurrana, who we know by now has a knack of picking out-of-the-box scripts, shines bright once again in Bala. He is the perfect fit for a script like this, as his character is convincing and relatable. A man consumed by self-loathing and his continuous hair-loss makes him even more miserable and he desperately looks for a permanent solution to get back the perfect hair that he had in his childhood. How would you react if you were the hottest person in the school because of your hair and cut to the present, you are struggling to keep a lush mane on your head. It's pretty common knowledge that men are obsessed with their hair and premature balding is a subject which was neglected earlier but now, the movie is trying to create a healthy discussion around this matter © Maddock Films Khurrana adds a certain vulnerability to the character and makes a point to convey the message with some well-written dialogues in the movie. In the movie, Bala falls in love with a TikTok sensation Pari (Yami Gautam) who is only obsessed with looking good all the time (in a way, the movie also attacks the whole social media culture). Following a failed attempt to tell Pari the truth about his wig, the two get married and when Pari discovers the truth, her reaction is just epic. Truly, Yami has done a brilliant job and you will end up feeling mighty impressed by her work. © Maddock Films As I mentioned earlier, the movie has also dealt with how our society tends to look down upon darker-skinned women. In the movie, it's through Bhumi Pednekar's character, Latika that the director touches upon this much-talked-about, but often neglected issue in our society. Bhumi doesn't believe in outer beauty but focuses on the idea of accepting the real you. But somewhere, I feel the movie had more potential in terms of showing the predicaments faced by the dark-skinned people in our country. Well, I cannot really complain here since the movie is about premature balding and still, they have tried to incorporate this issue. The movie boldly attacks the idea of using fairness creams that promote the concept of fairness being equivalent to being beautiful. © Maddock Films All the three leads have given their messages loud and clear but it's always the supporting cast that helps the lead actors shine. In Bala, we have an ensemble cast that includes Saurabh Shukla, Abhishek Banerjee, Seema Pahwa, and Javed Jaffrey. They help in bringing the extra laughs and have given justice to their roles and somewhere, without them, the movie wouldn't have been this interesting. © Maddock Films Now, moving to technicalities, the movie's music and score blends perfectly well and glides smoothly with the narrative of the movie. It has been shot pretty well and there are no such bumpy rides in the film. To sum it up, Bala is a light-hearted comedy that hits the bullseye with the message being loud and clear, which is to accept the real you and overcome the fear of body shaming. Takla, Nata, Mota, Patla, Gora, Kala are just tags and they don't define the real you. Bala is a must-watch indeed and I strongly recommend you to check it out at the earliest. View the full article

Shah Rukh Khan and Salman have worked on many films together in Bollywood and were last seen together in 'Zero' where Salman made a special appearance for a song in the film. But we as an audience have enjoyed them both in iconic films like Karan Arjun, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and many more. View the full article
  23. After his first short movie Mehsoos won the Silver Film of the Year award at Asia's largest filmmaking challenge, India Film Project 2019, Chand Mohammad spoke to MensXP about the film and shared some tips on short filmmaking. Chand has also edited and written the movie along with writer Saad Khan. The movie features Deepak Kalra in the lead role. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad Mehsoos shows us how even when you are at your lowest point, your loved ones will be by your side. “I was brainstorming ideas with my writer when he suggested to me the idea of Mehsoos which was about a person who wanted to travel and wander freely but couldn't because of his paralytic condition," explains Mohammad on how the idea struck him. But before we get into the nuances of making the film, here are 10 tips he had for all you aspiring filmmakers: 1 Keep a few ideas handy and ready which you know might just be perfect to shoot in the time frame you have. 2. Brainstorm for at least a couple of hours with your team because writing a fresh concept is the most important part of the film. 3. Write a story - be clear about what you want from your actors and what kind of location you're going to use. And have the script ready the next morning. 4. Share your script with your music director so that he/she can start working on it and in the meanwhile, you can start with shooting your movie as the whole packaging is pretty important. 5. Share your concept for visualization with your DOP and the actors as well. 6. Start shooting first thing in the morning. Try to complete your shoot as soon as possible. 7. Don't shoot in a hurry as it will affect your end product. Ensure that your filming is restricted to under 30 hours, so that you have the necessary time to edit perfectly. 8. Before editing, take a quick nap of around four hours to calm your head. If you're both the director and editor, you know what you're going to make, but if someone else is editing your film make sure the person is crystal clear about your vision or it will take time. 9. Try to complete the first cut as soon as possible and make sure the background score fits perfectly. If there are any changes, try to incorporate them in the first cut itself. 10. Make the graphics simultaneously while editing. The flow of the film is very important and you don't want your audience to skip anything at any time. So make sure your short film is intriguing enough to watch. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad Coming back to the filmmaker, Chand belongs to the small town Shahpur in Muzaffarnagar (UP). He started his career as a video editor and cinematographer in Delhi, before moving to Mumbai to work as a video producer and eventually a creative video producer. © Instagram/Chand Mohammad We all know how making a film is no cakewalk and elaborating on his challenges, Chand says, "I think keeping everyone on the same page on every process of the film was the biggest challenge because, on sets, everyone was confused about the idea as we were not shooting in a particular order." But he stuck with his conviction, "I was the only who knew what we were making because writing to editing a film in a small time frame is very difficult. But, I am glad everything worked out.” In case you're wondering where to catch his short film, here's a link to it:

For now, all we can say is 'Jai Mahishmati'! and let's hope we get to see this magical team work together again soon.
  25. Back in 1966, Batman was a little... different. Back then, comics were primarily targeted at children - and instead of the gritty, dark tone set forth by Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film, we had catchphrases, silly moustache-twirling villains and dance routines. It also introduced us, however, to a brand new kind of movie villains that clearly lacked said facial hair - the seductive, slick and stealthy Catwoman, who was arguably played best by Julie Newmar. Today, nearly 53 years on, we've been introduced to the next actor to take on the whip and catsuit - Zoe Kravitz. Jason Momoa, her step-father, was pretty excited too. On a side note, it's pretty cool to know that Catwoman and Aquaman are related in real life. View this post on Instagram I'm so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA. DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMANððð Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun Aloha P bear A post shared by Jason Momoa (@prideofgypsies) on Oct 14, 2019 at 6:21pm PDT With several action film credits - think Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: First Class and even Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - she's definitely got the chops to do some pretty fun scenes, and even has experience as voice-acting Catwoman in The Lego Batman Movie. Add in her work from Big Little Lies, and director Matt Reeves just might be able to pull off some truly exciting dialogue. However Whenever the Internet mentions Catwoman, there's a pretty decent chance that from the depths of 2004 mainstream movie culture, a film will be referenced. That film is Catwoman, where the titular character was played by none other than academy award winner, Halle Berry. Universally panned as her worst, and even the genre's worst film, it's become something of a meme - a globally recognised standard on how to screw up a superhero movie. We hope Zoe's listening, because I'm about to put down five of the horrible sins this movie committed - we hope she'll avoid in her stint as Selina Kyle. A Studio-Butchered Script The screenplay team had upto 12 writers working on the script at a time - several of whom claim that the movie single-handedly ended their careers. “As one of the credited writers of Catwoman,” said writer John Rogers in a 2018 tweet, “I believe I have the authority to say: it was a shit movie dumped by the studio at the end of a style cycle, and had zero cultural relevance either in front of or behind the camera. “ Rogers also claims that he was fired off the movie after writing the green light draft for raising his voice in meetings with studio executives whose ideas he considered 'very, very bad'. He says that he hasn't even watched the whole film once in 15 years, and skipped premiere night to film audition footage instead. Smart move, Rogers. The Worst Origin Story In Superhero Film History Now, let's not get ahead of ourselves - origin stories in comic books are pretty dumb across the board. Peter Parker's radioactive spider-bite was definitely an eyebrow-raiser, for example. Catwoman, however, took things way too far, in a scene that defies explanation even 15 years later. In the comics, the character undergoes a truly harrowing, dramatic arc that makes Batman's journey seem like a joyride. Raised by a suicidal mother and alcoholic father, she's thrust onto the streets as a child and becomes the skilled cat-burglar we all know and love. © DC Comics Halle Berry's character, however, gets… meowed back to life after drowning, by a bunch of CGI kitties. At least we know where that $100 million budget went, huh? The Worst Editing In Superhero Film History You can write a bad movie, drop in a bad premise and force a good actor into a terrible role, but no shitty movie is complete without the thing that ties all these soggy bits together - the editing. Take a look at this scene that ought to be played in film schools around the world, just to illustrate how NOT to edit a film. This nausea-inducing, cringefest of a scene was silly enough with the dialogue and awkward acting, but man oh man, did they really pick up the scissors for this one. Almost every cut is barely 2 seconds long, and it doesn't stop here - this jittery, disorienting trend stays throughout the film's action scenes as well. And no matter how great Halle Berry looks, it doesn't matter much once you're left convulsing on your bedroom floor. At Least Get The Name Right! Unusual for a critical rant, but this time I'm going to choose the licensing folks at Warner Bros. as the target of my rage. As a comic book purist, along with several others of you out there, I can pretty confidently state that while taking liberties with the source material can lead to great results (looking at you, Captain America). Unfortunately for Halle Berry, her Catwoman was so far-off from the source material that given a different superhero name, it probably wouldn't even qualify as a DC film. This becomes obvious right in the beginning - as the character isn't the tough-as-nails, street-thief badass we know as Selina Kyle, but a quiet, demure, patient graphic designer named… Patience Phillips. Seriously? The Worst Climax In Superhero Film History As the plot drags and CGI cat-jumps its way forward, we learn that scary-boss-lady Sharon Stone is about to fight to the death with Catwoman. Now, kick me if I'm wrong but pitting a supermodel against a superhero doesn't really make for a compelling climax scene. There's no tension at all over here - the entire scene is basically Halle Berry beating the crap out of Sharon Stone in a pantsuit, of all things. How this film made it to production and even raised over 80% of its budget is beyond me. All I can hope for is that Zoe's going to be a great Catwoman, especially since in the last 15 years, Hollywood has certainly proven that superhero movies can be excellent. Other than Suicide Squad, of course. (Note: I actually think the worst climax is from that *** scene in Zack Snyder's Watchmen. Hehe.)
