Justice League

During Comic-Con, Warner Bros. Pictures brought some superhero action into Hall H with a brand new trailer for Justice League, introducing the world to the villain called Steppenwolf, who both walks tall and carries a big stick, or rather an axe that appears to have the power to lay waste to the world.

As the new Justice League poster points out, you can’t save the world alone, and we certainly can’t let the new trailer go by without taking a cue from Aquaman and making a deep dive into what this footage tells us about the first big screen union of these DC Comics superheroes. So come with us as we deliver a Justice League trailer breakdown. Read More »

Godzilla 2 Mothra

Godzilla 2 (formerly titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters) began production last month, and we’ve since seen a few set photos emerge that indicate overturned cars, things on fire, and the general amount of destruction one might expect from a 350-foot-tall giant lizard stomping around and battling monstrous enemies.

One of those enemies is the winged creature Mothra, and a new photo from the film’s marketing department gives us another look at Godzilla’s formidable foe.

Zack Snyder DC Films

While Christopher Nolan kept DC Comics movies in the public eye with his Dark Knight trilogy starting in the mid-2000s, Nolan’s insistence that his movies exist in their own cinematic realm resulted in the higher-ups at Warner Bros. and DC looking for a new creative partner who could kickstart a cinematic universe to rival what was happening at Marvel Studios. They chose Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), who directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and (most of) Justice League, but a new report claims that Snyder’s influence over the DCEU will be significantly smaller moving forward. And if that weren’t enough, Suicide Squad director David Ayer might be leaving the DCEU entirely.

Ready Player One Trailer Breakdown

After reading Ernest Cline‘s Ready Player OneSteven Spielberg was amazed by the world on the page, but initially, he had no idea how to adapt it. He credited Cline as his handbook and guide for the OASIS, the digital landscape where much of the story is set.

“The virtual world was amazing,” Spielberg told the crowd at Comic-Con. “When I read Ernie’s book, it was the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time, to a decade I was very involved in, the 1980s. There’s a flash forward to a future I think is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not. The creation of a virtual world took almost two and a half years of preparation that will resolve at the end of March next year.”

Cline adapted his fun page-turner with Zack Penn, a co-writer of a movie that influenced the author, Last Action Hero. Based on the trailer, they’ve remained faithful to the story, but the world isn’t all about ’80s references. What Spielberg and his team look to have done with the OASIS appears to be nerd heaven for some fans. The trailer has plenty of easter eggs, but better yet, it teases some of Spielberg’s biggest and wildest set pieces.

According to the filmmaker, the teaser trailer gives audiences only a “slight taste of what’s to come.” Until then, let’s examine what we do see with a Ready Player One trailer breakdown.

Andy Serkis Star Wars Character

Andy Serkis‘ Jungle Book: Origins was originally scheduled to come out in October of last year, but it’s been postponed multiple times and is now scheduled for a 2018 release date. The two-year delay does give Serkis’ film more space from Jon Favreau‘s smash hit reimagining of the famous title. As for how the two adaptations differ, Serkis believes his take is more faithful to author Rudyard Kipling‘s original source material.

Below, the War for the Planet of the Apes star explains the differences between Jungle Book: Origins and The Jungle Book.

Ivan Drago in Creed 2

Update: This past weekend, Sylvester Stallone posted a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #drago, which is yet another piece of confirmation that a member of the Drago family will be a character in Creed 2. Read our original article from July 5 below for speculation about how this might play out in the sequel.

Ever since Creed hit theaters in the fall of 2015, surprising us all with just how outstanding a spin-off of Rocky could be, fans have been wondering when/if a sequel would come together. Though MGM CEO Gary Barber once mentioned that he would like to get a Creed sequel together for release in November of this year, that’s certainly not happening. But that doesn’t mean the prospect of a sequel is dead altogether.

Sylvester Stallone has been taking to Instagram over the past couple of weeks with some interesting nostalgic posts that seem to hint at what’s in store for Creed 2. In fact, one of them seems to flat-out confirm what kind of territory the story could be heading, and it includes a face from the past who could really make things interesting. Read More »
