When the Weinstein Company, Dimension Films, and Blumhouse delayed the film after lead actor Jennifer Jason Leigh was nominated for an Oscar, we assumed someone paid to have it taken out back to see the rabbits. But it survived after … [Read more...]

Wonder Woman Is Almost Definitely Coming To The Rescue Of ‘Flashpoint’

Warner Flashpoint, the DCEU’s solo movie for The Flash (Ezra Miller), hasn’t exactly zoomed into theaters. The film lost its first director, Seth Grahame-Smith, over “creative differences,” although that may be for the best since Grahame-Smith has never directed a feature film before (He wrote Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter among other things). Then the highly-sought-after Rick Fumayiwa (Dope) signed on but ultimately … [Read more...]

The ‘Wonder Woman’ Honest Trailer Doesn’t Confuse Length With Depth

“She’s the hero the DCEU doesn’t deserve, but sure as hell needs right now.” That’s right, it’s Wonder Woman, the not-much-maligned subject of the newest honest trailer from Screen Junkies. They took on the Herculean task of trying to find reasons to complain about a critically acclaimed and record breaking movie. About that challenge they say, “If we’re being honest there’s no way this … [Read more...]

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Still Looks Like A Smashing Joyride In A Very ’80s Trailer Edit

“What if Thor: Ragnarok was actually made in the ’80s?” That’s the question answered by The Nerdist in the trailer edit and mashup above. The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok already had a bit of an ’80s action movie feel to it thanks to What We Do In The Shadows director Taika Waititi, but this trailer edit redoes the whole thing like it’s a Cannon Films VHS being rented out until the tape disintegrates. The … [Read more...]

Here’s Our First Look At ‘Hellboy’ Along With A Whitewashing-Free Casting Update

Via Lionsgate Lionsgate tweeted a first look at David Harbour (of Stranger Things and SAG Awards speech fame) as the stone-fisted red demi-demon himself in the upcoming Hellboy reboot.

Nic Cage Says His Unmade Superman Movie Is ‘More Powerful’ Than All Those Other Ones

Touchstone Nic Cage Week may already be over, but Nic Cage himself never ends, and if he does, he’ll decide where the end is. And so Cage is at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he fielded a question about Superman Lives, the Tim Burton-directed movie that would have starred Nic Cage as the Man of Steel. Warner spent around $50 million on development back in the ’90s before canceling the project, perhaps because, as Nic … [Read more...]

Jared Leto Method Acted Himself Temporarily Blind For ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Warner Bros. Jared Leto has done it again. The Oscar winner and living embodiment of the HAM horn is back in the news for his method acting, but this time Edgy McEdgerton the edgelord wasn’t scaring his coworkers, but rather making his depiction of blind villain Neander Wallace in Blade Runner 2049 a little more realistic. Both Leto and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve spoke to The Wall Street Journal about Leto’s newest … [Read more...]

‘Blade Runner 2049’ TV Spot Hints At The Villain’s Plot And Shows Off Ryan Gosling’s Girlfriend

“Replicants are the future of the species, but I can only make so many,” intones Jared Leto in an inscrutable, unsettling accent an international TV spot for Blade Runner 2049. As we gleaned from the film’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, Leto’s character is Neander Wallace of the Tyrell Corporation, and he both solves a worldwide hunger crisis and works to lift the ban on creating replicants. But this is the Blade Runner … [Read more...]

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’s Title Is Explained, Along With A Wild Promo

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, has laser lassos, whiskey drones, and Channing Tatum as a cowboy secret agent named Tequila. In other words, Fox read our wish list.
