justice league reshoot

Reshoots are a common part of the blockbuster movie business and while we can whip ourselves into a frenzy over news of “significant reshoots” or additional returning characters, the vast majority of additional photography exist for one purpose: to make a movie better. But with Wonder Woman surprising everyone with its critical acclaim and box office success, it’s no wonder that it may be affecting upcoming Warner Bros. projects…including the next big DC Extended Universe movie: Justice League.

Photos from the set of the superhero team-up movie suggest that Gal Gadot‘s role in Justice League may be bigger than originally intended. And honestly, I don’t mind.

Cannonball Run Remake

A remake of the 1981 action comedy Cannonball Run has been in the works for years. The last update we heard on the project had Get Hard director and Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen writing and directing. But it appears that deal never came to fruition, as a new director and pair of writers have been brought on board the project.

Mondo Edge of Tomorrow Vinyl

Mondo previously gave the Tom Cruise led sci-fi flick Oblivion a special vinyl soundtrack, because M83’s score for the film was one of the best of the past decade, along with Daft Punk’s score for TRON Legacy. Now they’re giving the same treatment to Tom Cruise’s superior sci-fi action flick directed by Doug Liman the year after.

Edge of Tomorrow, or Live. Die. Repeat. as it came to be known on home video, is getting a collectible vinyl soundtrack release today, and it’ll make a great addition to your vinyl collection, especially if you love colored vinyl. Read More »

wonder woman casting

Reddit board members weren’t the only ones initially on the fence about when Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman. Patty Jenkins, who at the time wasn’t yet announced to direct Wonder Woman, said she almost gave up on her dreams of directing the solo female superhero film when she heard about Gadot’s casting.

But in 2015, Jenkins signed on to direct Wonder Woman, and she — and the world — were happily proven wrong by Gadot’s performance in this year’s record-shattering, critically beloved superhero blockbuster.

Zhang Ziyi

Zhang Ziyi is the latest to join the cast of the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla and the third movie in the Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

But the Chinese actress best known for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Memoirs of a Geisha won’t just be playing monster fodder. Her role will reportedly figure prominently in the MonsterVerse, with Ziyi set to appear in future monster movie installments.

Trailers Before Trailers Green Band
If you’re the kind of person who seeks out movie trailers when they debut online instead of passively watching them when you happen to be at a theater, you’ve likely noticed a trend that’s become increasingly prevalent over the past year or two: three-to-five second mini-trailers, featuring snippets of what you’re about to see in the full trailer, are being tacked on to the beginning of full-length trailers on sites like YouTube and Facebook. Call these things what you like – trailers before trailers, pre-trailers, or the industry-preferred term “bumpers” – but they have been annoying me and many of my colleagues for a while now, and since absolutely nothing else of any importance is going on in our country at the moment, I figured this was worth exploring further.

I first noticed this trend about a year ago and quietly hoped the practice would stop, but since I’ve only seen it grow in popularity over the past few months, I decided to reach out to some key players at the studios and some of the world’s top trailer editing companies to learn more about these bumpers, find out why they came about in the first place, and see how they might evolve in the future.

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Robin Wright Justice League

Did you enjoy Robin Wright’s performance as the hard-hitting General Antiope in Wonder Woman as much as the rest of the world did? Then you’re likely still riding a high from the film, and Warner Bros. is looking to extend that excitement all the way through November. Wright will be reprising her role as the tough-as-nails warrior (and Diana Prince’s aunt) in Zack Snyder’s Justice League later this year.

Patty Jenkins Directing Wonder Woman 2

After Wonder Woman had a huge opening weekend at the box office and shattered records, it was full steam ahead on all the chatter about a sequel. Director Patty Jenkins had already been vaguely discussing possible paths for a Wonder Woman sequel to take, and everyone reporting on the success of the film has been saying she’ll be back to direct again. But that’s not a done deal yet.

Don’t worry, Wonder Woman 2 is a foregone conclusion at this point, but apparently all the talk of Patty Jenkins being set to direct the sequel were misinformed. At this time, the filmmaker is not currently signed on to direct Wonder Woman 2. However, don’t get out your torches and pitchforks just yet, because she’ll be negotiating a deal to direct very soon.

Jason Mantzoukas (who plays Frank) gives us a guided tour of the casino and all its glorious accommodations, which includes five-star dining, a kick-ass pool and handjobs.
