Margot Kidder (1948-2018)

by Nathaniel R

My generation lost its Superman, Christopher Reeve, tragically early 14 years ago. And now we've lost our Lois Lane. The Canadian American actress Margot Kidder has passed away at 69. I can still picture the heroes flying together across that Metropolis sky. And I do mean heroes plural. The magic of the first two Superman films was definitely in the fact that they understood Lois's heroism, too. Their faces aren't the only thing burned in memory but their voices, too...

"Justice League" to Deny Us the Cavill-stache

Chris here. Depending on which report you believe, Justice League has been in nearly constant state of filming since production initially wrapped. But the latest bit of news out of a new batch of reshoots has the superhero tentpole going too far - Justice League will digitally erase Henry Cavill's mustache.

Think of all the possibilities that we are being denied with this false CGI smoothness aside from a change of pace for the squeaky clean hero! Evil Superman, Euro-Superman, Tom-Selleck-Tribute-Superman. Jokes aside it is an odd sort of digital trickery and another level to the ongoing saga of this tentpole's preproduction. (But reminder: the goal of all reshoots is to make a movie better!)

This is also an interesting tidbit to emerge considering that Warner Bros. has been dancing around admitting that Superman will return from the dead in some form (that new poster out of Comic Con has Supes' logo though he is nowhere in the actual lineup). The practical reason is that Cavill will be back and forth between Superman duties and the next Mission: Impossible. What are the odds on the Cavill-stache being one of the best M:I stunts?

Would you keep or CGI out the Superstache?

Amelia, Nixon, Byrne, Wonder Woman, and the Original "Death of Superman"

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1802 Alexandre Dumas is born. He dies just before cinematic technology begins to blossom so he couldn't have known that his novels like The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers series, and Queen Margot will all be adapted multiple times in a new artform.
1821 Gang leader William Poole, "Bill the Butcher" is born. Daniel Day-Lewis taps his fictional glass eye 181 years later on the big screen...

On this day: Royalty Porn, Superman Returns, Stonewall Riots

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1461 Edward IV is crowned King of England. Over a dozen actors will play him from silent film to TV miniseries including Roy Dotrice (The Wars of the Roses), John Wood (Richard III), and Max Irons (The White Queen) but despite awards-voters fetish for royalty porn this role has never resulted in an Oscar, Tony or Emmy nomination.
1838 Queen Victoria is crowned. Emily Blunt reenacts the ascenscion for Young Victoria (2009) receiving her third of five Golden Globe nominations (she's won once). Oscar, though, has yet to notice her gifts. When Oscar, when? What do you require?...
