Finding Dory Reviews

Finding Dory doesn’t arrive in theaters until next weekend, but a slew of press and critics have already seen the movie as they participate in press junkets with the cast and crew.

For many, it seems to be just as good as the original, inspiring some tears to roll, but there are a few who weren’t as impressed.

A month and a half ago the story was confirmed: This interpretation of Moore’s classic comic book is indeed rated R.

Directed by Sam Liu (co-director of Batman: Year One), Batman: The Killing Joke will be released on Blu-ray this August, but a few days prior you may have the opportunity to see it in a select theater. Below, learn more about The Killing Joke theatrical release.

Justice League Dark Animated Movie

There have been rumblings of a Justice League Dark movie in the works since as far back as 2012. Director Guillermo del Toro was once supposed to be behind the camera for an assembly of DC Comics characters such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Jason Blood/The Demon, Madame Xanadu and Anton Arcane, but he ended up falling away from the project nearly a year ago. More recently, some possible casting and director contenders have emerged, but we haven’t heard anything since last fall.

Now fans waiting for a Justice League Dark movie can pass their time with a forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movie that’s in the works according to the supplemental features on the forthcoming home video release of the animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. Find out more about the Justice League Dark animated movie below. Read More »
