We’re quickly approaching the release of Suicide Squad and Warner Bros. is no longer being stingy with the footage. Not only have they released eight new clips from the film, they have released eight new clips that touch on characters, details, and plot points that have been specifically left out of the various teasers and trailers released so far. So yeah, please watch all of the clips below, if that is what you care to do (I did). But if you feel like you’ve seen enough and want to go in a little fresh and can happily wait another week and a half, feel free to opt out.

The jury is still out on whether or not a sequel to Blade Runner is a good idea in the first place, but I’ll say this much: director Denis Villeneuve has been assembling a cast that certainly makes it look like a good idea. The latest actor to join the increasingly large ensemble is British character actor Lennie James, best known to audiences for playing Morgan Jones on AMC’s The Walking Dead.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H. Thankfully for fans at home, every single piece of footage they showed at the convention ended up online, from the Justice League sizzle reel to The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. But honestly, the best thing to come out of the panel was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. You’ve probably watched it plenty of times by now, but we wanted to do a little breakdown of the footage we see in the tease for the first solo adventure of the DC Comics superhero.

Some of your favorite actors and actresses can be just as geeky and nerdy as you and me. However, since they have some of the most recognizable faces on the planet, they can’t walk around places like the Comic-Con show floor without being bombarded with fans looking to snap a picture or get an autograph. That means celebrities often have to have some kind of disguise in order to enjoy Comic-Con like an average attendee, and Henry Cavill did just that this past week.
In a video posted to the actor’s Instagram, Henry Cavill shows how he donned the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vendetta in order to walk around Comic-Con. He even snapped some photos with fans wearing Superman shirts and ended up surprising some of the cast members of Suicide Squad during an autograph signing sessions at the DC Comics booth. See the Henry Cavill Comic-Con disguise fun after the jump. Read More »
UPDATE: Charlie Hunnam is not coming back for Pacific Rim 2. Over the weekend, he spoke to Yahoo Movies and said that he “was forced to exit the production at an early stage due to scheduling conflicts.” So his character Raleigh Becket will not be in the sequel, though Hunnam says he’s still excited to see what they do with the follow-up. Our original story follows.
For a short while, the possibility of a Pacific Rim 2 appeared doubtful. Universal scrapped the sequel’s original release date, but soon after that a new date was announced and it was announced that John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will play the son of Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost in Steven S. DeKnight‘s sequel. But what about the original cast? Will Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) return? What about everybody’s favorite black market Kaiju salesman, Hannibal Chau (Ron Perlman)?
Producer Guillermo del Toro confirmed we’ll see a lot of the original film’s cast members come back. Below, learn more about the Pacific Rim 2 cast.

UPDATE #2: Variety confirms Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to play female lead Iris West in Rick Famuyiwa’s The Flash. Our original story from July 8, 2016 follows.
When Warner Bros. needed a new director for The Flash, it looked to Dope and picked up filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa. And now that Warner Bros. is starting to cast The Flash, it’s borrowing from Dope again. Kiersey Clemons, who worked with Famuyiwa on that Sundance charmer, has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner to play the female lead in The Flash, opposite Ezra Miller as Barry Allen.
UPDATE #1: The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit adds that Rita Ora (Fifty Shades of Grey) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) are also in the running. More below. Read More »
On Saturday, Warner Bros. revealed the first footage from the upcoming Justice League to a packed audience at Comic-Con. And then it arrived online. It would be unfair to call this a trailer – it’s obviously been put together from a movie that isn’t close to being finished, focusing on simple dialogue scenes instead of the VFX shots and action beats you’d expect from this sort of thing.
And yet, it still looks promising! There’s an attitude on display here that simply wasn’t present in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which certainly lends credence to all of that buzz about director Zack Snyder attempting a serious course correction for the DC movie universe.
So how about we go through this thing frame by frame? I’m sure we’ll find something to talk about.

A few years ago, South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon‘s sojourn in Hollywood came to an abrupt end when The Last Stand was a box office bomb. And while I have a soft spot for that goofy, endearingly odd movie, a late-period Arnold Schwarzenegger shoot ’em up was probably not the best use of the man who directed A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, I Saw the Devil, and The Good, The Bad, The Weird. Here’s a filmmaker who has always been at his best when he’s allowed to go totally for broke. He wasn’t made to juggle aging action stars and studio notes.
Now, Kim has returned to his homeland and has a new movie arriving this year. And I’m a little biased because I have loved almost all of his work so far, but The Age of Shadows looks like one of 2016’s more exciting movies, an espionage story that looks genuinely fresh and tense.

For this year’s Hall H panel, Warner Bros. brought along not one but two Batmen. There was Ben Affleck for the Justice League presentation, of course — and then there was Will Arnett for The Lego Batman Movie. Arnett and director Chris McKay brought some new The Lego Batman Movie footage and took a few minutes to answer some questions about the movie.
