But just as fans were divided by Snyder's interpretation of the Superman mythos, many are taking to the Web to voice concern over Warner's choice to have Affleck play Batman. They remember Daredevil, a 2003 stinker from 21st Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOX ) that displeased fans despite a decent run at the box office. (The rights to that character have since returned to Marvel and Disney.) For its part, Warner's press release says Affleck has the acting chops to play a "seasoned crime fighter" who's older and more experienced than Superman. The message? Even if Snyder pursues a different take on the character, it won't be a pure reboot of the Batman franchise. Thatwon'tbe enough for fans who distrust Affleck. But as both a fan and an investor, Tim says he's Kim Kardashian biography willing to suspend disbelief.

Mighty Movie Podcast: Joe Swanberg on Drinking Buddies
In Drinking Buddies, Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) are co-workers at a craft brewery whose friendship may be turning into something more. The problem with that: both are already in relationships -- with Ron Livingston and Anna Kendrick respectively -- and life is managing to throw them curves that may well lead to the "unfortunate discovery" phase of a relationship well before either have decided whether they're actually in love. As with such previous films as Hannah Takes the Stairs and Alexander the Last, Swanberg's story-telling style is pleasantly relaxed and Kim Kardashian age ragged, although here he's working with a more high-profile cast (albeit with such walk-ons as director Ti West). We got a few minutes with Swanberg to talk about his approach, and also to explore the life-or-death, take-no-prisoners (joke) world of craft brewing.

Father fears 2007 movie inspired missing son to flee into Oregon woods
That character was known as Red Mist in the first movie, but here rebrands himself as something we canat print in the paper, but which Samuel L. Jackson says often. And as with the first film, Kick-Ass 2 also goes to some very light, slapsticky places. Itas as if writer/director Jeff Wadlow (working from Mark Millaras graphic novel) wanted to have his cake and blow it up, too. It even dips into philosophical waters, with an interesting though ultimately undeveloped subtext about what it means to be yourself when youare an average citizen by day and a superhero by night. The ego can get a little confused by all the costume changes.

Digital divide hits drive-in movie business
The father said he became concerned that his son may have gone missing after he failed to return last Monday to resume classes at Mesa Community College in Arizona, after driving to visit a friend in Washington state. Kim Kardashian swimsuit Croom said his son sent a text message to a friend more than a week ago saying: "I'm going adventuring." Croom described his son as a happy young man with an electric smile who had - in the past six months - grown fascinated by the true story of Christopher McCandless. In the early 1990s, McCandless, a recent college graduate, embarked on a cross-continental journey, discarding his possessions and living in the rugged Alaskan wilderness, where he eventually died of starvation. McCandless' story was made famous by "Into the Wild," a best-selling non-fiction book by adventure writer Jon Krakauer, published in 1996, that was made into a popular movie. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office found Croom's car on Wednesday. David Croom, who is in Riddle to help in the search for his son, said residents there told him they'd noticed the abandoned vehicle as early as last weekend. Dwes Hutson, a spokesman for the sheriff's office, declined to comment on the case.

Movie review: Kick-Ass 2 falls short of the original (with trailer)
(Photo: Bill Neibergall, The Des Moines Register) The United Drive-In Theatre Owners Association figures 50 to 60 theaters have already converted to digital gear. At least one operator decided to close instead of switch, but it's not clear how many more might go dark next year. Kim Kardashian s boobs "You'll be digital or you'll close your doors," said Walt Effinger, whose Skyvue Drive-In in central Ohio opened a year before the Valle. "If you're not doing enough business to justify the expense, you're just going to have to close up." The Skyvue, like the 61 Drive-In on Highway 61 south of Maquoketa, Iowa, has already converted to digital. The movies now come on a device the size of a portable hard drive and are downloaded to the projector, which requires less hassle for the staff and gives viewers a stunningly clearer image. Think of the picture on a flat-screen digital TV, compared with the old tube set.
