The Star eCentral: Movie Reviews

A sidekick for Batman


TV star Adam Driver has been rumoured as top choice to play Nightwing.

Girls star Adam Driver has emerged as the frontrunner to play Batman's crime-fighting partner Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing (formerly Robin), in Zack Snyder's superhero sequel Batman vs. Superman, two individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Warner Bros had no comment.

Driver boasts a unique look that fits the rumoured description of Nightwing – Grayson's post-Robin alter-ego – as a "young John Hawkes", as first reported by Latino Review. At 1.9m, Driver could hold his own against 1.95m Ben Affleck, who will play an older and world-weary Batman.

A source tells TheWrap that at least two other actors may be in the mix to play Grayson, the Caped Crusader's former sidekick, who's been estranged from Bruce Wayne for years in the movie, according to Latino Review. Henry Cavill is set to reprise his role as Superman alongside his Man Of Steel co-stars Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne.

Driver – who did a stint in the US Marines after the Sept 11 terrorist attacks – is a new favourite on the Warner Bros lot, where he made a strong impression on the studio's Greg Silverman with his performance in WB's dysfunctional family comedy This Is Where I Leave You.

Shawn Levy directed the 2014 release, in which Driver plays the brother of Tina Fey, Jason Bateman and Corey Stoll and the son of Jane Fonda. Warner Bros has been busy searching for Batman vs. Superman's female lead, who is expected to serve as a love interest for Batman. Olga Kurylenko is the frontrunner, though Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) and Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) have also tested for the part and remain in contention.

It's unclear whether the coveted role is that of Wonder Woman or her alter ego Diana Prince, who is expected to make a brief appearance along with fellow DC Comics character the Flash.

Warner Bros will release Batman vs. Superman on July 17, 2015.

Since his breakout, Emmy-nominated turn as Adam Sackler on Girls, Driver has worked with Clint Eastwood on J. Edgar, Steven Spielberg on Lincoln and the Coen brothers on Inside Llewyn Davis. Driver next stars opposite Mia Wasikowska in John Curran's Tracks and will soon be seen alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Mackenzie Davis in CBS Films' romantic comedy The F Word.

He has also reteamed with Frances Ha director Noah Baumbach on While We're Young. — Reuters

Game on for Harrison Ford


More than 30 years after Star Wars, Harrison Ford has returned to inter-stellar space battles in big-budget sci-fi spectacular Ender's Game.

But the 71-year-old insists it's the human relations rather than hi-tech wizardry that drew him to the project, developed from a novel by Orson Scott Card and directed by South African X-Men director Gavin Hood.

"It doesn't matter to me whether I go back into outer space or not," he told reporters in Beverly Hills.

"The job is the same and I don't have any sort of genre preferences.

"I'm just looking for a good story, a good character, whether Earth-bound or not."

In a film which will resonate with Star Wars fans recalling the young Luke Skywalker and the crusty Han Solo, Ford plays Colonel Graff, training a group of children and teenagers how to protect the Earth from an alien invasion.

The best bet to save the world is Ender, played by Britain's Asa Butterfield, who starred in Martin Scorsese's 2011 drama Hugo.

Timid, but with an exceptional gift for military strategy and tactics, he becomes the hero of a film in which inter-galactic battles are played out in space and in a simulated game world.

It is almost Ford's first sci-fi film since the last Star Wars movie, apart from a role in 2011's Cowboys And Aliens.

And science fiction has changed quite a bit since director George Lucas released the initial trilogy of the cult movie franchise in 1977 – as Ford explained as he presented his latest movie.

"When we were making Star Wars, they were putting together space ships out of plastic model kits of cars, boats and trains, and gluing them all together, and then putting them on a stick and flying them past the camera.

"And it worked. It was fine. Add a little music and you believed that big spaceship coming over your head," he said.

Dismisses the label "icon"

Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) can achieve incredible effects, but the veteran Hollywood actor warns they should not be abused.

"Often in those cases I feel you lose touch with the human characters and what it is that they would feel and how they might feel, and that's still the most important part.

Into his seventh decade, the actor is in fact busier than ever, with three other films released this year: 42, Paranoia and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

But the legendary Indiana Jones actor, while one of the most famous actors in the world, dismisses the label of "icon".

"An icon means nothing to me. I don't understand what it means to anybody, actually. It seems like a word of convenience.

"It seems to attend to the huge success of certain kinds of movies that I did, but ... I don't know what an icon does, except stand in a corner quietly accepting everyone's attention," he joked. — AFP Relaxnews
