Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American dream, but of course the real draw was the gyrating hardbodies on stage. So far, Magic Mike XXL seems to be leaning into that raunchy appeal, with a marketing campaign heavy on half-naked torsos and naughty puns. Not that we’re complaining.
The newest Magic Mike XXL trailer continues in the same vein, commenting on how hard (wink wink) it was to resist showing off all the best parts (nudge nudge) of the movie. Even so, there’s plenty to enjoy here. Feast your eyes on the new Magic Mike XXL trailer after the jump. Read More »
The enduring image from the television adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It has been Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown. For all the failures of that mini-series, Curry’s Pennywise remains bizarre and frightening. He’s perhaps even more unsettling in still images than in motion, thanks in part to his Buster Poindexter-like approach to the character.
Now, the new version of It, a two-film affair to be directed by Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Beasts of No Nation) will feature a very different vision of Pennywise. This time the clown will be played by Will Poulter, of The Maze Runner, We’re the Millers, and Son of Rambow. And evidently it was the Will Poulter Pennywise audition that swayed the director away from much older actors. Read More »
Despite the devastating earthquake that recently rocked Nepal, the Warner Bros. blockbuster San Andreas starring Dwayne Johnson is still hitting theaters at the end of the month. The studio is, however, making sure its worldwide marketing campaign is modified in order to be more sensitive to those dealing with the aftermath of the natural disaster. And now one more piece of promotion for the film has arrived: a somber new San Andreas trailer. Read More »
Task Force X is the collection of villains and weirdos that makes up the men and women on a mission in David Ayer‘s DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, and now we’ve got a photo of the whole team. Ayer has dropped hints here and there, and released an arresting image of Jared Leto as the Joker. But this image has so much more: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, among many others. Check out the Suicide Squad cast photo below.
Update: There’s also a photo that shows Will Smith’s character Deadshot in full masked regalia, set for action.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Fans first saw the Ben Affleck Batman suit in a cryptic, black and white image next to the Batmobile. Then there was a shadowy close up on the cowl. The full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer revealed more of the full body, then we saw the full suit, but again bathed in shadow. That was followed by a video with all three costumes. By that point, it was obvious Zack Snyder and his team were being careful to show the full suit, giving fans just enough to keep them guessing.
They probably still want to do be mysterious but leave it to the Internet to foil those plans. Two new images of Ben Affleck’s Batman have now arrived online. One is the Batman v Superman IMAX poster image, with the distracting Superman symbol removed, and then there’s the same shot, but from a step back and in full color, leaving the whole suit up to intense scrutiny. Check out the latest images of the Ben Affleck Batman suit below. Read More »
“We’re on track to deliver a slate of films that will delight audiences everywhere thanks to the efforts of the many exceptionally talented people invested in the success of this universe.”
That’s Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production at Warner Bros., talking about the studio’s upcoming slate of DC movies. It’s not only the obvious studio sentiment, it’s what fans all over the world want to believe. They hope one of the biggest, most powerful movie studios, controlling some of the most beloved characters, is going to treat them right in a way we can all treasure.
While that statement very well might end up being true when the films hit the theaters, at the moment, it’s a bit more difficult to believe. The Hollywood Reporter has a fascinating and scathing report on the construction of the DC Cinematic Universe. It cites numerous examples that no one knows exactly how this is all going to come together. One example? Five writers were hired to write competing versions of Wonder Woman. Three writers were hired to do that for Aquaman, and more. Read more about the upcoming DC movies below. Read More »
