Henry Cavill On What's Next For Superman


Henry Cavill brought Superman back from the dead this weekend in Zack Snyder's Justice League - which is an excellent time at the movies for those wondering - and it sounds like the actor has a few ideas in mind about where he'd like to take the Man Of Steel for his next big screen appearance.

Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Cavill said: "There’s a wonderful opportunity to tell the Superman story,” Cavill said. “Now there is a fantastic chance to show Superman in his full colors and tell a very complex, character-driven movie that is based on story and have that wonderful sensation of hope and happiness. A feel-good movie with lessons laced in there as well."

He then went on to share that both he and director Joss Whedon saw eye-to-eye on many aspects of Superman during the reshoots. "I’ve always enjoyed the traditional, very classic view on Superman in the comic books," Cavill said. "I think there’s an enormous complexity to that character. I know when I was working with Joss he and I saw eye-to-eye on some of the aspects of Superman. That paragon of hope. That ideal. That wonderful feeling of, ‘Oh, good, Superman’s here!’ I have also developed a very personal and protective relationship over this character, and it was just lovely to have the opportunity to smile and feel good."

Cavill was contracted for a total of four DC Films when he signed on to play Superman, so here's hoping he gets to portray the Man Of Steel he really wants the next time we see him. Until then, we highly recommend you check out Justice League in theatres now.

Justice League Scores $185-Million International Opening


Justice League may have stumbled slightly here at home with a $96-Million opening, but overseas is a different story. The Zack Snyder superhero ensemble scored a huge win internationally, dominating the box office with a huge $185.5-Million from 47,000 screens across 65 different overseas markets.

China led the charge with a very impressive $51.7-Million.

This puts the DC tentpole ahead of the international opening weekends for Warner’s Wonder Woman and Disney's Thor: Ragnarok. In China, Justice League played across 20,500 screens and took in 65% of grosses from the top five films. Additionally, the film scored the second biggest debut for a Warner Bros. film in that country, edging out last year's Batman v Superman.

Justice League also ranked first in 10 other Asian markets with $41.2-Million as the second highest Warner Bros. launch after Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Latin America contributed $35.4-Million, while results from Europe also topped the likes of Warner's Wonder Woman and Disney's Thor: Ragnarok.

Other results from overseas include Brazil with $14.2-Million, the United Kingdom with $9.8-Million, Mexico with $9.6-Million, South Korea with $8.8-Million and Russia with $6.5-Million. The film now sits at $281.5-Million.

It is expected to hit $300-Million worldwide later on this week.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe and Connie Nielsen, Justice League is in theatres now.

How many times have you seen it?

Thundercats Voice Actor Earle Hyman Has Died


Sad news to report today, Infinite Earths fans!

Earle Hyman, known for his role as Russell Huxtable on The Cosby Show and voicing Panthro on the classic Thundercats cartoon, has passed away at the age of 91.

Hyman passed away Friday at the Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood, New Jersey.

Hyman was a classically trained actor with a career spanning six decades both on and off Broadway. He was known for celebrated runs in such Shakespeare plays as Julius Caesar and Macbeth, and would even receive an Emmy nomination for his role on The Cosby Show.


Born in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Hyman would develop a love of theater and Norway while growing up. He would eventually end up performing here in North America and Norway respectively, making homes for himself in both countries.

Hyman came of age during a time marked by a new flourishing of African American writers and stars, including playwrights Lorraine Hansberry, Amiri Baraka, Ed Bullins and Ntozake Shange, and actors Gloria Foster, Mary Alice, James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman, among many others. He was also an advocate for colorblind casting, once saying: "I am 65 years old and I am still saying that all roles should be available to all actors of talent, regardless of race. Why should I be deprived of seeing a great black actress play Hedda Gabler?"

Hyman's last New York stage appearance came in 2009 when he played Ferapont in Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters.

Rest in peace, Mr. Hyman, and thanks for the memories!

Monster Mash! The History Of Rampage


Earlier this week, Warner Bros. released the very first trailer for Brad Peyton's Rampage.

The film focuses on a primatologist attempting to stop three genetically modified animals from causing a worldwide catastrophe as they battle it out across North America.

Being a kid that grew up in the 90's, I am more than familiar with the Midway video game that this new movie is based on. However, tonight I learned that there are many out there who have no idea that this upcoming Dwayne Johnson creature feature is based off a game.

And so, with that in mind, we present a brief history of Rampage...

Released by Bally Midway back in 1986, Rampage was initially an arcade game that saw players taking control of gigantic monsters as they destroy multiple cities across North America while trying to survive against an onslaught of military forces.

Players take control of one of three different monsters including George, a giant gorilla transformed after ingesting an experimental vitamin, Lizzie, a lizard mutated by a radioactive lake, and George, a wolf that was changed after ingesting food laced with an unknown addictive. The monsters need to raze all buildings in a high-rise city to advance to the next level, eating people and destroying everything from helicopters and tanks, to trolleys and taxis along the way.

The monsters can climb up buildings, punching them to reduce them to rubble. Various people, and food items, can also be found throughout the stages and can be eaten for energy. The monsters receive damage from enemy bullets, sticks of dynamite, shells, punches from other monsters, and falls. Should a monster take too much damage, it reverts into a naked human and walks off screen - however, as the human leaves the arena, it can be eaten by the other monsters.


During gameplay, windows can be smashed to reveal hidden items. These, like food and humans, can be helpful, while others, like bombs and cigarettes, can harm you. Each monster can also hold a specific human to increase their scores.

Rampage takes place over the course of 768 days across 85 different cities that repeat themselves a total of five times before reverting back to the beginning. Each time the monsters reach the city of Plano, Illinois in the original Midway arcade game, all three receive a mega vitamin boost that restores health and provides a large point bonus.

In the 31 years since the game was initially released, it has been ported to numerous home console gaming systems. Rampage also saw release on the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx, Atari 8-bit, Atari ST, Commodore 64, MS-DOS/IBM PC, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, NES, and Sega Master System respectively. This has allowed an entire generation of gamers to enjoy the monster-mashing fun of this classic arcade title. In more recent years, the game was released on numerous classic game compilation discs for the Sony PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo Game Cube and the Microsoft Xbox.

Numerous sequels to the game have also been released. In 1997, we got Rampage: World Tour. This follow-up sees the monsters on the loose once again. It was released in arcades and on such home consoles as the Nintendo 64, the SEGA Saturn and Sony PlayStation. Rampage 2: Universal Tour followed in 1999, with the Sony exclusive Rampage Through Time dropping in the Fall of 2000.

In 2006, the game got a sequel entitled Rampage: Total Destruction that was released on the Nintendo Game Cube, Wii and Sony PlayStation 2. This updated version included the original game as an included bonus feature.

 

So, there you have it, Infinite Earths fans! A brief history lesson on Rampage.  
 
Hopefully it helped make things a little clearer regarding the upcoming film.
 
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
 
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, P.J. Byrne, Marley Shelton, and Matt Gerald, Rampage stomps into movie theatres on April 20th, 2018.
 
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
