justice league rotten tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes stirred up some uproar yesterday when the review aggregator website announced that it wouldn’t be releasing the Tomatometer score for Justice League, the highly anticipated and embattled DC Comics superhero movie, until Thursday — until a full day after the review embargo lifted. The score would be revealed in conjunction with the website’s new Facebook show See It/Skip It, and fans would have to be satisfied with combing through reviews without a final score. Of course, a few news outlets even did the legwork themselves and produced an unofficial Justice League score. You know, for science.

But a mistake may have been made and the Rotten Tomatoes score was leaked early. The leaked score is no longer available, but the evidence is strewn all across Twitter. Continue reading if you dare.

Roy Conli interview

Don’t call Olaf’s Frozen Adventure a short film. “Technically, it’s a featurette,” according to producer Roy Conli. Whatever you’d like to call it, the 21-minute animated story is set to play in theaters before Pixar’s upcoming Coco. The “featurette,” which is directed by Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton, centers on Olaf, the childish and joyous snowman from Frozen, as he learns about the holiday traditions of the citizens of Arendelle in an attempt to give Elsa and Anna a tradition of their own after the years they spent apart. It’s a fun continuation of the Frozen narrative and a nice return for beloved characters from the 2013 smash hit.

A few weeks ago, I visited Walt Disney Animation and sat down with producer Roy Conli, who told me about John Lasseter‘s involvement, a rejected alternate idea for the special, how the featurette’s music could possibly follow the mega-hit “Let It Go,” and more.

Batman Forever Honest Trailer

Justice League hits theaters this coming weekend, bringing us Ben Affleck‘s take on Batman again as he rounds up the DC Comics superhero team on the big screen for the first time ever. But it was a long road to get here with a couple sizeable speed bumps courtesy of director Joel Schumacher.

After Batman Returns got a little too dark, gothic and kinky for parents taking their kids to see the new Batman movie, Warner Bros. dulled things down by shifting into a more ludicrous gear with Batman Forever. Watch as Honest Trailers takes on the beginning of the end of the 1990s era of Batman, including Bat nipples and a perpetually open-mouthed Val Kilmer.

New Blu-ray Releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

It’s time for another round-up of physical media. Are you like me – living in the past and unable to give up material possessions? If so, you prefer good old fashioned physical media like Blu-rays to just going digital. There’s something more special (at least in my broken brain) about displaying your Blu-ray collection on a shelf than just purchasing something digitally and then forgetting all about it. With the actual physical disc, it’s always there, in front of you. Or maybe I’m crazy!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features one of the coolest action movies of the year, a somber, snowy drama, a five-film box set, and a documentary about cats. What more do you need, folks? Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Galaxy Quest TV show

Back in August, we learned that actor/writer Paul Scheer had been hired by Amazon to write a TV adaptation of the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest, a movie about a group of washed-up actors who used to star on a Star Trek-style sci-fi show who are swept up into a real space adventure. This is great news – Scheer’s comedic sensibilities are a perfect match for that world.

Yesterday, I had a chance to sit down and speak with him about his role in The Disaster Artist. While that full interview will be published closer to that film’s release, he gave me an update on Galaxy Quest that fans will be very excited to hear. He confirmed that the show will continue the story of the characters from the movie, and it’ll include two separate casts whose adventures merge as the season progresses. Read on for everything we know about the Galaxy Quest TV show so far.

luke skywalker jedi temple

Ahch-To may have you thinking back to a certain recurring joke in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tightsbut the oddly-named planet is crucial to Star Wars lore and the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker finds himself in self-exile, and where the aspiring Jedi Rey finds Luke at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But The Last Jedi won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the former Tatooine farmboy ended up in the Ahch-To Jedi Temple — nor will the movie overshare details at all, really — so you’ll have to look to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game to gain insight into this particular journey.

jimmy kimmel superhero trailer

There’s nothing like having super friends to make you a special superhero movie trailer based on a comic book you wrote when you were a 10-year-old nerd.

That’s what a flushed Jimmy Kimmel received on his 50th birthday, courtesy of Ben Affleck (his on-and-off boyfriend and actual superhero actor in the upcoming Justice League) and J.J. Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. The Terrific Ten are an invention of 10-year-old Kimmel’s mind, only existing on the worn-out pages of a comic book drawn by the prepubescent talk show host. Until last night.
