Justice League

The DC Extended Universe has been off to a rocky start, to put it mildly. Yes, their films have made money, but the audience reactions to Man of SteelBatman v Superman, and Suicide Squad have been divided at best. Still, they’ve got a few promising projects coming up on the slate including Justice League and The Batman. And those involved with the franchise would really, really like you to know that they’re going to be good.

In a new interview, Aquaman screenwriter Will Beall talks up Justice League as “much more fun” and “much poppier” than its somber predecessors. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck reassures fans that, yes, he’s still planning to direct The BatmanRead More »

mad max 5

Back in 2015, /Film stopped being a movie site and started being a Mad Max: Fury Road fan site for a little while. But can you blame us? Our favorite movie of that year struck a chord with movie fans all over the world, managing to appeal to action movie junkies and cineastes alike with its inventive filmmaking, wild performances, and rich attention to theme and detail. It remains one of the best movies I’ve seen in a theater in the past decade. So yeah, we’d welcome another entry in the series…and so would star Tom Hardy, who says he’s just waiting for someone to call him.

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spots

LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.

Below, watch The Lego Batman Movie TV spots.

Considering how battered and bruised 2016 left the world in general, the only sane thing to do is look at 2017 with caution and fear. Except for the movies. The movies look pretty cool. A bunch of new images from the year’s biggest movies have arrived online, suggesting that we may get to see some pretty cool movies before civilization completely collapses.

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spot

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.

Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »

blade runner 2049 rumors

Today brings us two pieces of Blade Runner 2049 news, both of which could be seen as spoilers and both of which should be taken with the necessary grain of salt. This paragraph exists to warn you away from reading further if you want to go into this one blind. So, you know, spoiler warning.

aquaman stunt team

One of my go-to “drunk in a bar and feeling shouty” conversation subjects is the lack of respect for stunt coordinators and the bruised, battered, and fearless men and women working with them. After all, these are people who put their personal safety on the line to bring movies to life and they don’t even have a category at the Academy Awards (something that has not gone unnoticed). And since one of my other go-to “drunk in a bar and feeling shouty” conversation subjects is all about how Mad Max: Fury Road really is as great, and maybe even better, than its reputation suggests, that film’s stunt team has nothing but my undying respect.

So the news that they’re working on James Wan’s Aquaman is the kind of display of good taste that makes me feel pretty warm toward the upcoming DC comics movie.

Ben Affleck's Batman Movie

Another day, another remark from Ben Affleck has come regarding the state of development on what is meant to be he first turn directing himself as The Dark Knight in the DC Extended Universe movie that may or may not be called The Batman.

Ben Affleck has consistently said that he wouldn’t direct a solo Batman movie unless the script was good, but more recently he sounded a bit more optimistic. However, now I’m starting to wonder if Affleck is just messing with film journalists, because he’s back to saying the project and his involvement is on unstable ground. Read More »

Kong Skull Island Trailer

I haven’t had the chance to go on the record with my thoughts on the latest trailer for Kong: Skull Island, so I’ll get that out of the way first: this movie looks nothing like I expected, I have no idea how it got made, and I can’t wait to buy a ticket to witness this madness. While that headline is all about a nifty piece of concept art from the film, the really interesting tidbit here is that director Jordan Vogt-Roberts seems as surprised as anyone that he was able to make the crazy movie he pitched.
