jutice league comic con
When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent. So its not shocking that Zack Snyder brought his still-in-production film to San Diego — its more like an expected surprise. They revealed a new piece of Justice League concept art, giving you a better look at the Aquaman and Flash costumes. We also got a sizzle reel, which you can watch below.

making of kubo and the two strings

The magic of stop-motion animation is that it still conjures a “How the hell did they do that?” reaction. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of films from Pixar, Disney Animation, and DreamWorks Animation, but the filmmaking process on CG-animated films doesn’t fill me with awe and wonder. At the end of the day, most modern animation is all about talented people sitting around computers and watching files render for hours on end. The end result can be impressive, but it doesn’t exactly light a fire under my imagination.

So bless Laika, the production company that has spent the past decade making stop-motion movies that dazzle the senses while telling offbeat and unique stories that push the boundaries of the medium. And as much as I have enjoyed their finished work, I often find myself enjoying behind-the-scenes looks at their process even more. This new featurette on the making of Kubo and the Two Strings kind of blows my mind.

jared leto joker

When Jared Leto‘s take on the Joker was initially revealed, it resulted in the loudest, angriest fanboy temper tantrum to hit the internet since, well, Heath Ledger’s take on the Joker was initially revealed in the early days of marketing for The Dark Knight. Since then, most everyone has seemingly come to terms with the fact that the new Clown Prince of Crime is a heavily tattooed maniac from the streets who looks nothing like any previous version of the character. At least everyone has stopped screaming and has started quietly muttering to themselves.

We won’t be able to give Leto’s performance any final marks until we actually see him in action in Suicide Squad next month, but we can watch this new promo that puts the spotlight on the character and jump to some hasty conclusions. You know, if that’s your thing.

suicide squad clip

Suicide Squad opens in just a few weeks and the best thing I can say about the movie’s marketing is that I have no idea what to expect. The trailers have been offbeat and impressive. The character designs are funky and completely out of left field. It looks hugely different in scale and intent from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which suggests a burgeoning DC movie universe that won’t be afraid to try different things. There’s a lot of stuff here that has me excited, which does a fine job of tempering the aspects that I’m dreading.

Above all, I’m most curious to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, the Joker’s psychopathic girlfriend who finds herself sprung from prison and forcibly recruited into a special ops team composed entirely of super villains. A new clip from the film shows her in action and let’s just say that she can give Captain America a run for his money in the “fighting bad guys in an elevator” department.

Suicide Squad TV Spots

Yesterday, Warner Bros. released an extended promo introducing audiences to Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), “one of the scariest characters in the movie” and the mastermind who puts the Suicide Squad together. One of the leaders of that squad is Deadshot (Will Smith). Smith, who’s probably most famous for playing heroes, stars in David Ayer‘s film as the assassin/supervillain. The newest promo tells you all you need to about the character, including the fact only his friends call him by his real name Floyd.

Below, watch the Suicide Squad extended promo.

star trek beyond marketing

Star Trek Beyond opens in just a few days and a new TV spot has spoiled one of the film’s biggest twists. In other words, you probably shouldn’t watch that new TV spot. I highly recommend not watching that new TV spot. And now Simon Pegg, the co-writer of the film and the man wearing chief engineer Montgomery Scott’s red uniform, has made it clear that you shouldn’t watch this new TV spot. This may have the opposite effect and entice you into actually watching this new TV spot, but hey, at least we’re trying here. At the very least, now you know exactly what you’re getting into here rather than blindly stumbling into a 30 second advertisement that blatantly gives away a third act reveal.

In just a couple days, fans will get to see Star Trek Beyond in theaters. Some will be lucky enough to attend the premiere at Comic-Con on Wednesday night while others can see it if they’re able to check out the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres that same day. Otherwise, Thursday night will bring the first nationwide screenings of the movie so we can all see if the early buzz on the sequel is right on the money.

In the meantime, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has arrived and it reveals an interesting detail about the villain played by Idris Elba. However, if you’re looking to go into the sequel knowing as little as possible, this could be considered a spoiler, so we’ve saved this reveal for after the jump. Read More »

rogue one behind the scenes

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the thousands of fans who piled into Hall H for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel expected to see a new trailer for the most eagerly anticipated film of 2015. Instead, director J.J. Abrams revealed that they weren’t ready to unveil a new trailer…but they had something else. The video they played was key to energizing the narrative around The Force Awakens, a movie that was, at the time, surrounded by mixed buzz and engendering uneasy feelings amongst the most devoted fans. A look behind the scenes of the film proved to be just as powerful as a traditional preview, touching every nostalgic note while promising a move to the future.

Now, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is attempting a similar narrative at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in London. While just about everyone was expecting a new trailer for director Gareth Edwards‘ new movie to arrive with the film’s panel, Lucasfilm has instead released a video that takes us behind the curtain, offering tantalizing glimpses at the film’s set and the scale of this ambitious production.
