During his recent interview with Collider the director for the live-action take on Death Note, Adam Wingard was quick to confirm that the film will stay true to the bloodiness and maturity of the source material:

“We can do whatever we want,” he started. “So, doing my first live-action anime thing, to me it was important that you have those adult themes. So, it’s got nudity, it’s got swearing, it’s got a ton of violence.”

Wingard went on to say that the adult-oriented part of Anime has always fascinated him:

“The thing about anime is that it’s so adult-oriented,” he explained. “I remember going to Suncoast growing up and you see Akira there with the little 'Not for Kids' sticker on it. That always made an impact on me.”

And further, that there's no way this movie's going to get anything less than an R-rating.

“It’s definitely for adults,” he stressed. “It is zero chance it will be below an R-rating. [It] will be one of the first manga adaptations that feels very grounded but still has fantastical elements.”

Not really sure what is happening here -- did Baffleck finally lose his senses altogether? -- but during an interview with Spanish-language news outlet Cines Argentinos, Ben Affleck offered up the following response when asked about his plans for the untitled, future solo Batman project:

“I think what I would do is, I would probably do in some ways what Zack [Snyder] did with this movie, which is to borrow great stories from the great comic books but create an original story around it. I wouldn’t want fans to already know the story, but I would borrow — steal — great things that have been done before in the comics.”

During his interview with Conan O'Brien, Frank Grillo was asked about something he'd said to EW a while ago, along the lines of, 'yeah, Crossbones could take Hulk.' 

So Conan, ever the entertainer, broached the subject when the two sat down together:

O'Brien asked Grillo, “You’ve said he could take The Hulk?”

Grillo answered, “I think Hulk is a dumb-dumb. Oh Hulk, I could trip the Hulk. Like, one of my guys could stand behind the Hulk and push him over...Tony Stark? Not so much.”

Ohhhkay Grillo, okayy.

Like, is the dude insane or what?

Via The Guardian: 

At a time when many believe the creativity of Japan’s once-bold video game industry is in decline, Miyazaki has captivated global audiences without compromising his vision. He is as enigmatic as his creations: he refuses to appear on film and, while he often meets fans, never talks about his own life, always shifting the focus on to the games or his team. He appears younger than his 40 years, despite the grey pallor of his face – the result, perhaps, of too many days spent under the fluorescent lights of his studio, by a dirty underpass in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo. He is clearly admired by his staff, who, one of his team quietly admits, will apparently call him for personal advice while he’s travelling overseas.
