Last week was a weird one for Zack Snyder and his film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film’s first trailer was briefly teased on Instagram, then released online in low-quality bootleg form, forcing Warner Bros. to officially release the trailer days in advance of its planned theatrical IMAX debut. (That’s still happening tonight.) But that’s all out there now, so we’ll just move forward. Now you can get a look at the primary Batman v Superman costumes thanks to a video featuring NBA star DeAndre Jordan checking out a Warner Bros. exhibit of the suits and new Batmobile.
UPDATE: B-Roll footage has now been put online with a much more detailed look at the costumes. Read More »

Writer/director John Michael McDonagh is following up Cavalry with a new movie called War on Everyone, featuring Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård in the lead roles. They play “two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.” Now the first image is out for the film, and while McDonagh’s name should be enough to raise your interest, seeing Skarsgård flip us the bird in this War on Everyone image might help.

Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a new Cameron Crowe movie coming out next month. That may sound crazy because buzz around the film has been almost non-existant, but it’s true. The director of Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire and Say Anything is about to release Aloha, a Hawaiian-set military romance starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Bill Murray, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin.
It’s an insane cast in a film with a weird plot that involves satellites and space. Aloha seems difficult to peg. But what better way to preview a Cameron Crowe movie than with its soundtrack? The writer/director recently revealed the songs that make up the Aloha soundtrack, which you can hear below. Check out a new poster, too. Read More »
For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »

I’m in Las Vegas for the yearly CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest) which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. The convention is filled with talks about how to maximize profits and a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of their upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond, and some even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
This morning we saw a presentation from Paramount Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Star Trek 3, Zoolander 2 and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free CinemaCon Paramount reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Three things are certain in life. Death, taxes, and Internet trailer parodies. The instant a big film trailer hits the web, you know hundreds of people start working on different parodies, memes, and whatever else they can come up with. In the past week, two of the year’s biggest trailers came online: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, so too came the parodies.
For Batman v Superman, Screen Junkies did an Honest Trailer version of the trailer, and someone else re-edited the footage with shots of Christopher Reeve and Adam West to give it a retro feel. Check out the Batman v Superman trailer parodies below. Read More »
