The FIFA scandal that finally unseated organization president Sepp Blatter broke just as FIFA’s own promo movie, United Passions, landed in theaters. The film hit with a flat thud in the US, but a new project in development now has the potential to fare much better. This one is a FIFA scandal movie with Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) set to direct for producer Ben Affleck, and it will focus on one particular executive who took part in underhanded dealings. Read More »

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.
The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.
Reportedly, Warner Bros. has Ben Affleck lined up to direct his own solo Batman movie for release in the fall of 2018. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Batman after the jump. Read More »

With the natural disaster thriller San Andreas on the way to theaters this weekend (watch the latest trailer here), there’s no better time to take a look at another film that threatened humanity on a massive scale. Armageddon had plenty of mass destruction on Earth before sending a team of oil drillers and astronauts to the surface of an asteroid to blow it up. And now Honest Trailers has drilled into what they call Michael Bay‘s last fun movie, full of plenty of explosions and clock-ticking.

Fans first saw the Ben Affleck Batman suit in a cryptic, black and white image next to the Batmobile. Then there was a shadowy close up on the cowl. The full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer revealed more of the full body, then we saw the full suit, but again bathed in shadow. That was followed by a video with all three costumes. By that point, it was obvious Zack Snyder and his team were being careful to show the full suit, giving fans just enough to keep them guessing.
They probably still want to do be mysterious but leave it to the Internet to foil those plans. Two new images of Ben Affleck’s Batman have now arrived online. One is the Batman v Superman IMAX poster image, with the distracting Superman symbol removed, and then there’s the same shot, but from a step back and in full color, leaving the whole suit up to intense scrutiny. Check out the latest images of the Ben Affleck Batman suit below. Read More »

Rumors of Ben Affleck, either as Bruce Wayne or Batman, showing up in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad have been floating for months. There’s still no official announcement but if a photo says a thousand words, maybe this is good enough.
Not only was Affleck caught by paparazzi at the airport in Toronto, where the film is being shot, he was caught on set, with black and white hair a la the latest version of Bruce Wayne. Check out the Ben Affleck Suicide Squad photos below. Read More »

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it sees the world of DC’s comic book heroes reeling from the aftereffects of Man of Steel.
As humanity struggles to come to terms with the presence of the godlike Superman (Henry Cavill) we hear a clamor of voices discussing the post-Superman world. Some sound like real-world quotes — are Charlie Rose and Neil deGrasse Tyson heard early on? — while others, such as Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor, are definitely unique residents of the DC Movie Universe.
And then there’s Jeremy Irons as Alfred, who is heard in voiceover after the rumbling dies down, and Ben Affleck, whose Batman looks incredibly huge even without armor. The confrontation promised by the movie’s title is teased with a question phrased as both a command, and a threat: “Tell me… do you bleed?”

The last time I saw the 2003 Daredevil movie was 2003. I didn’t like it then and I’m pretty sure I don’t like it now. To be honest, I don’t remember much about it. Its memory faded faster than I could walk out of the theater. That’s what bad movies do. But Daredevil has since, somehow, never left the public consciousness. In the past decade, it’s become the punchline of every superhero movie joke there is. Plus, it continues to have all these odd connections to today’s popular culture. (Affleck playing another superhero, Affleck marries Garner, etc.)
One of the biggest modern connections is the fact Marvel finally got the character back and turned it into a Netflix series which will be released this weekend. That makes it the perfect time for Screen Junkies to remind us why the Daredevil movie is so bad with an Honest Trailer. Check it out below. Read More »
