The Dark Knight 10th Anniversary Screening

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since The Dark Knight blew audiences away. Christopher Nolan crafted one of the finest comic book sequels ever made. Hell, he crafted one of the best blockbusters ever made. It’s just a fantastic film all around.

If you haven’t gotten enough of the movie in your repeated viewings on Blu-ray/DVD or on HBO or TNT, fear not, because the 10th anniversary of The Dark Knight will bring the film back to select theaters. However, you might find it difficult to catch it if you don’t live on the East coast. Read More »

Tessa Thompson Kick-Ass

Netflix bought comic writer Mark Millar‘s Millarworld company last summer, but two Millar properties were not included in that deal: Kingsman (which saw a movie sequel released last year) and Kick-Ass. The latter is getting a new monthly comic series in 2018 with a brand new protagonist: the mantle of Kick-Ass will pass from Dave Lizewski to Patience Lee, a black woman who served in the military and is the mother of young children.

Now Millar says that if he could pick an actor to take over the Kick-Ass mantle from Aaron Taylor-Johnson, he’d choose Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson to play Patience Lee in a new movie. Read the writer’s Tessa Thompson Kick-Ass comment below.

heathers trailer

These aren’t the Heathers you remember. In the 1988 cult classic, the original Heathers, played with icy conviction by Kim Walker, Shannon Doherty, and Lisanne Falk, were willowy, beautiful mean girls who terrorized their fellow high school students — until Winona Ryder and Christian Slater’s rebellious outsiders took fatal action against them. Heathers was a heightened, sadistic satire of the pitfalls of high school whose body count would arguably not play well post-Columbine.

But here we are, with a modern reboot of Heathers, only with a new trio of Heathers cast as a body positive bully, a gender-binary guy, and an African-American fashionista. How very.
