Batman and Superman are headed to Detroit. Contrary to rumors that the superhero crossover movie would film in Vancouver , theMichigan Film Office announced this week that the Great Lakes State will shell out $35 million in incentives for the DC Comics flick to shoot in metro Detroit. "Detroit is a great example of a quintessential American city, and I know it will make the perfect backdrop for our movie," director and producer Zack Snyder said in a press release . "Detroit and the entire state of Michigan have been fantastic collaborators, and we are looking forward to working together on this film." It's ahefty incentive for DC Entertainment to pour an anticipated $131 million into in-state spending. The movie expects to employ 406 Michigan workers, use approximately 500 Michigan vendors during production, drop $5.1 million on hotels, and give $3.5 million to cast and crew in per diem payments, which they will likely invest in the local economy. The Detroit Free Press reported that the percentage rate of return on spending is greater than what Disney received for shooting "The Great and Powerful Oz" atPontiacs Michigan Motion Picture Studios in 2011. Production on "Batman vs. Superman" ( working title ) is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014 , and the movie is slated to hit theaters in summer 2015 . <br>Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/batman-superman-movie-will-film-in-detroit-michigan-2013-8
She hired this guy just to help her keep him off death row. The idea of him being innocent is more than she can fathom. She hasn't got the equipment. Without proof, she hasn't got the equipment. So she just says, "I can't do this anymore." And it's a line that's completely applicable to the case, but it's also a line out of a romance and it's their break up and then you see her thinking, "Oh my God, what have done," and then she follows him out. And so it was fun. I think Tom and I had a very easy chemistry. <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/lee-child-david-oyelowo-and-rosamund-pike-talk-about-jack-reacher-movie
The sexy comedy follows a thirtysomething woman (Kathryn Hahn) who decides to let a stripper (Temple) move in with her family. The supporting cast includes Jane Lynch, Josh Radnor and Michaela Watkins. Here's a trailer: &amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;!--iframe--&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; Now, I'm generally averse to any "stripper with a heart of gold"-type story, but this cast intrigues me, and I'm a longtime fan of Soloway's writing. Even when she's not in a great movie (like Year One or Kaboom), Temple's presence usually makes me feel like I haven't wasted my time. It's nice to see Hahn get a leading role as well; you probably recognize her from Parks and Recreation and/or Girls. <br>Source: http://www.usatoday.com/story/popcandy/2013/08/29/afternoon-delight/2730057/
Cool movie alert: 'Afternoon Delight'
Is the home video revolution what made it such a massive success? Yes. Two things happened simultaneously: One was that home video came along in the early '80s, and the other was that I got hired by Entertainment Tonight, when the show was brand new, red-hot and the only program of its kind. It gave me tremendous exposure and recognizability, and that's when my publisher, to my astonishment, said, "We want to put your name above the title and your photo on the cover." I know you must go to screenings most of the time, but do you ever just go to the movies with the regular folks? I do, but I go at pics of Kim Kardashian off hours. I like seeing a film with people, but not necessarily with a horde of people. <br>Source: http://www.usatoday.com/story/popcandy/2013/08/29/leonard-maltin/2727523/
