trolls sequel release

While this year’s Academy Awards had a bumpy ending, it got off to an entertaining start with Justin Timberlake performing “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” It was a lively introduction for the Oscars. Timberlake obviously knows how to put on a good show. Maybe in a couple of years, he’ll be back at the awards show to perform another song from Trolls 2, which DreamWorks has scheduled for April 10th, 2020.

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Ben Affleck seemed deeply skeptical when Anna Kendrick (jokingly) demanded he cast her as Robin in his solo Batman movie. But she’s got the support of at least one of Affleck’s The Batman co-stars. Joe Manganiello, who’ll play the villain Deathstroke, is throwing his weight behind the “Anna Kendrick for Robin” campaign on social media.  Read More »

Ben Affleck Anna Kendrick Batman Robin

The internet may be clamoring for Anna Kendrick to play Marvel’s Squirrel Girl, but it looks like the Oscar-nominated actress has her eye on a different superhero project. Kinda. You see, Kendrick stars in this weekend’s The Accountant with Ben Affleck, who just so happens to be the star and director of that Batman solo movie we keep hearing about. In a funny new video, Kendrick tries to convince Affleck to cast her as Robin in the upcoming film. Or Batman, she’s not picky.

The Accountant Reviews - Ben Affleck

This weekend brings Gavin O’Connor‘s action thriller The Accountant to theaters, giving us a second round of Ben Affleck action following his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The trailer promised an engaging thriller following an assassin under the guise of an accountant who also happens to fall on the autism spectrum. So how did the movie turn out? The consensus seems to be that the movie’s concept and plot are rather ridiculous, but that doesn’t stop the movie from being enjoyable while also garnering comparisons to Batman.

Trolls trailer

At Comic-Con, DreamWorks showed 15 minutes from their upcoming animated film Trolls. Based on the toys from the ’90s, it looked like co-directors Mike Mitchell (Sky High) and Walter Dohn‘s (SpongeBob SquarePants) were aiming higher than most movies based on toys. For starters, its soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake, who recorded his first single for the film since 2013. Some of the music choices added personality to the animation, but one sequence played to Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood,” as unsubtle as that sounds, made Trolls look more charming than we may have expected before Comic-Con.

Below, watch the new Trolls trailer.

A little over a month ago, Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick expressed interest in playing the Marvel Comics superhero Squirrel Girl. Advised by her brother that the character perfectly fits her, Kendrick said she would probably be down to be half-squirrel if the opportunity arose. Fans of the comic didn’t think it was a bad idea at all, and now she has the support of one of her former directors in the form of Scott Pilgrim vs the World helmer Edgar Wright.
