Harry Potter IMAX Screenings

Just last week, we learned that Warner Bros. would be hosting a special fan event for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on October 13th that would offer a sneak preview of the forthcoming Harry Potter spin-off in 18 cities around the world. Also, the events hosted in the United States were slated to feature an exclusive IMAX screening of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Batman title

We still don’t know exactly when Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie will hit theaters, but now we know what it’ll be called when it does. The actor and director has revealed the film will be called The Batman, as has been rumored for years. In addition, Affleck has spoken a bit about Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), who was recently revealed to be the villain of the movie.  Read More »

Justice League Deathstroke

A few weeks ago, Ben Affleck posted a brief video revealing that Deathstroke would be making his way to the DC Extended Universe. Shortly afterward, Geoff Johns confirmed that Joe Manganiello had been cast in the role for Affleck’s Batman solo movie, which is expected out around 2018 or 2019. But it looks like we might get to meet the villain a little bit earlier than that.

Director Zack Snyder has posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of next year’s Justice League, which doesn’t look like much of anything at first glance but upon closer examination seems to suggest Deathstroke will appear in that movie.  Read More »

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Trailer

As a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise, I’ve been skeptical of whether or not Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them can deliver a quality magical adventure that lives up to the hype of the primary franchise. So far the trailers haven’t indicated much about the plot, and they haven’t been particularly exciting. But that all changes with the latest Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer. Not only does it take us inside Newt Scamander’s (Eddie Redmayne) magical suitcase, but it also shows off some new magical creatures, and gives us a better idea of who the villains turn out to be.

ben affleck batman release date

A Batman solo movie was never formally announced. We first heard rumblings that Ben Affleck was co-writing and might direct a solo adventure featuring his Justice League character. Then Warner Bros executives casually mentioned the project was happening at CinemaCon. But even when I was on the set of Justice League this past June, Affleck was non-committal about the project, telling us that he isn’t ready to make a movie “until there’s a script that I think is good.”

But earlier this month the actor/director felt confident enough to tweet out a screen test with Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, so it sounds like the script has hit the “good enough” tier. And while Affleck mentioned that Warner Bros has a tentative date for the movie, we have never heard when we might expect to see Batman’s solo detective story hit the big screen. Now Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes gives us some idea of when we can expect to see Ben Affleck’s Batman movie.

the age of shadows review

Almost every Kim Jee-woon film is a blasted battlefield where style and substance have declared war on one another. Most of the time, the two reach a stalemate – films like The Good, The Bad, The Weird and I Saw the Devil are energetic masterpieces that often feel as if they’re teetering on the edge of collapse, films whose expansive running times are justified by the sheer amount of things happening on the screen. It may take awhile, but even The Last Stand (Kim’s first and, so far, last foray into Hollywood) taps into his innate desire to tear up everything on the screen with gleeful, gory debauchery. It’s his default mode and it has served him well.

The Age of Shadows is a quite the departure for the director, who has returned to South Korea and has returned with a slick historical spy epic that finds his most identifiable traits being moved to the back burner, for better and worse.

fist fight trailer

Maybe I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I find it impossible to hate the trailer for any movie that features Charlie Day doing an old-timey boxer pose. So I certainly don’t hate the Fist Fight trailer, which looks silly and lowbrow and dumb, but also…maybe funny? I see a lot of funny people in this footage, so this is a situation where I’m fully prepared to keep my fingers crossed.

The Shining UK Re-Release Trailer

This year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for Stanley Kubrick‘s horror masterpiece The Shining, but that’s not stopping the United Kingdom from enjoying a theatrical re-release of the movie next month. Just in time for Halloween, The Shining will return to select theaters in the UK, and this time it will be what our friends across the pond refer to as the international cut.

Those of us in the United States have always known the longer version of The Shining, which stands at 144 minutes. But the theatrical release of the film in the United Kingdom had 24 minutes cut from the movie back in 1980. Now they get to see the movie Stanley Kubrick intended everyone to see it all its glory in the form of a a new digital transfer by Warner Bros. Pictures.
