In the early 1990s, Warner Bros actually built a Gremlins theme park ride called Gremlins Invasion. The attraction was built in two Warner Bros. Movie World theme parks, one in Bottrop-Kirchhellen Germany and the other in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. While the dark ride was open for almost ten years, I had not heard of its existence until this year. Last week I wrote about a Ghostbusters theme park ride that was being developed for Six Flags that was never built, so I thought now was a good of a time as any to explore the lost Gremlins ride.

Edge of Tomorrow isn’t the worst film this summer, not by a long shot, but it might be the worst title. It’s bland. It’s forgettable. It tells you nothing about the movie. And it’s infinitely less memorable than the original title, All You Need Is Kill.
Apparently, Warner Bros. doesn’t much like the name either. As Edge of Tomorrow prepares for a home video release, the studio is downplaying the real title in favor of its tagline, Live Die Repeat. In fact, that’s actually the film’s title on iTunes. Hit the jump to see what we’re talking about.

UPDATE: Ben Affleck is currently shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’ve seen photos of him on set, he appeared at Comic-Con to promote it, but not much has changed in regards to his feelings.
In September 2013, the actor praised the script’s unique take on the character, the work of director Zack Snyder, and discussed how he got cast – with Warner Bros. showing him clips of previous superhero casting backlash. Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said all of this again. We’ve got the new Ben Affleck Batman quotes, along with the old ones (and a video), below.

While photos of the main heroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been released, we have yet to see images of the heavy. That would be Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

We now have an idea thanks to quotes from an extra on the film and another site.
If true, these are massive, massive Batman v Superman spoilers so beware. Read More »
