harley quinn animated series

Harley Quinn is back, baby, and this time she’s getting the spotlight all to herself.

The Batman villain and Hot Topic bestseller is getting an animated series to call her own, in the form of a half-hour action-comedy on DC Comics’ untitled streaming service. The series, titled Harley Quinn, will follow the adorable psychopath after she’s rightly severed ties with her abusive and equally iconic ex, the Joker. Because there can still be a Harley without her Mistah J.

batman flashpoint

Call it Justice League 1.5: Flashpoint will now boast more than half of the members of the Justice League, with Batman joining Wonder Woman and Cyborg in a feature appearance in the reworked solo Flash film.

With the Dark Knight’s inclusion in the adaptation of the massive crossover event that rebooted the DC Comics, it adds to chatter that Flashpoint could usher in a new era for the DC Extended Universe. That is, if Warner Bros. is still planning to move ahead with its potential universe-rebooting film after Justice League‘s disappointing opening weekend.

star wars the last jedi crystal foxes

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi crystal foxes didn’t grab out attention as much as the made-for-merchandising Porgs, but they were eye-catching all the same. Sharp, ethereal ears. Glowing, iridescent fur. And an eerie similarity to Pokemon designs.

The fox officially has a name, and it’s called a vulptex. The plural, vulptices. Sound familiar? Well, it’s only a few letters off from a very similar-looking Pokemon called Vulpix. Maybe Lucasfilm story group member Pablo Hidalgo, who created the name for the creature, is a Pokemon fan after all. Or maybe he’s just pulling from the Latin word for “fox,” vulpes. Whatever the case, we’re slowly learning more about these secretive, shimmering beings.

phantom thread trailer

Just as suddenly as Paul Thomas Anderson‘s mystery movie dropped its title and released a trailer, it is announcing special sneak preview screenings to be held in Los Angeles and New York.

Phantom Thread reunites star Daniel Day-Lewis‘ with Anderson a decade after their award-winning masterpiece There Will be Blood, and carries the additional burden of reportedly being Day-Lewis’ last film before his retirement — hence the air of intrigue and anticipation around this film. And it seems like Focus Features is tapping into that anticipation, announcing seven exclusive screenings in the two cities in late November, a month before the film’s limited release.

night of too many stars

HBO’s Night of Too Many Stars, a live benefit that supports programs that aid people with autism, lived up to its name, using its star-studded line-up to tease spoilers for the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The first came in the form of an auction, in which Episode IX director J.J. Abrams — returning to the franchise after reviving it with Star Wars: The Force Awakens — sold details of the plot to the highest bidder, only to be drowned out by spoilers for Hot Tub Time Machine 3 and Sharknado 5. The second is as spoiler-y as you can get on the set of a Marvel movie, with Ant-Man and the Wasp star Paul Rudd answering questions about I Love You, Man before slipping in some details on the Ant-Man sequel.

Three weeks after Amazon launched an investigation into two separate sexual harassment claims, star Jeffrey Tambor announced that he is leaving Transparent.

justice league box office

UpdatedJustice League‘s opening weekend box office numbers were actually lower than initially reported, with the superhero team-up film opening to $94 million domestically. This is $2 million lower than the estimated $96 million that Warner Bros. reported on Sunday.

Justice League failed to live up to the sky-high expectations of fans and box office trackers on its opening weekend, raking in a mere $94 million domestically, lower than what was initially predicted. That makes it the lowest opening for any DCEU Film.

With the pressure high on Justice League to keep up the momentum of the summer’s runaway success that was Wonder Woman, and to salvage the teetering DC Extended Universe, could these disappointing box office numbers spell doomsday for the fledgling superhero cinematic universe?
