You’ve probably already seen the new Suicide Squad trailer that was unveiled yesterday. You may have already seen it a few times because it is one seriously impressive piece of marketing that showcases a tone and style that no one saw coming. Warner Bros. has obviously taken a few cues from how Marvel sold Guardians of the Galaxy to introduce this gang of misfits and oddballs to a wider audience and it works absurdly well. Director David Ayer has cooked up something that takes place in the same world as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it looks completely different in just about every way.
While the trailer does a fairly good job of establishing the basic premise (the government recruits a bunch of imprisoned DC comics super villains into a task force that is forced to go on dangerous missions), it doesn’t delve into the plot specifics. At the same time, it’s bursting with mysterious images, insane moments, and surprising beats. This thing begs for a frame-by-frame breakdown.
And your wish is my command.

It’s no secret that Terminator Genisys wasn’t the hit that Paramount Pictures hoped it would be this past summer. The film only pulled in just under $90 million at the domestic box office, and while it raked in a surprising additional $350 million in international box office receipts (with the movie opening huge in China), it’s not enough to keep the studio from rethinking the future of the franchise.
But it’s not just the financial return that’s a problem, because the movie has a 23% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the worst rated movie in the Terminator franchise. And so, that makes the Terminator Genisys Honest Trailer quite the hilarious roast of this unnecessarily complex and unwanted sequel. Read More »
Before Terminator: Genisys hit theaters this past summer, Paramount Pictures was hopeful that the sequel, which also functions as a franchise reboot, would be a big hit for them. The studio even scheduled two sequels to arrive in 2017 and 2019. However, when the film only rounded up a disappointing $89 million, the future of the franchise remained uncertain.
But nearly a couple of months after being released in the United States, the film hit the big screen in China where it landed $27 million in a single day, making it the 4th best opening day ever for a Hollywood movie in China, just behind Furious 7, The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction.
And since then, the Terminator Genisys box office overseas has only gotten bigger, with a total that just might be enough to get a sequel for fans who are still curious to see what happens in this new Terminator timeline. Read More »

This past weekend was a big one for superhero movies. Not in the sense that any of them actually opened in theaters (alas, we’re still stuck with Fantastic Four), but in the sense that a whole bunch of next year’s superhero movies have just wrapped shooting.
But while the cast of Captain America: Civil War celebrated at a bar in Leipzig and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse relieved Montreal of its entire supply of Red Bull, the Toronto-based cast of Suicide Squad indulged in a sweeter treat. Stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney stopped by a little girl’s lemonade stand to help her raise money for charity. Read More »

Forget the Avengers, the Justice League, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. Cinema’s most tight-knit superpowered crew is the cast of Suicide Squad, as evidenced by the fact that the actors have elected to give each other matching “SKWAD” tattoos. Not get matching tattoos, like from a tattoo parlor — actually give them to each other.

One of the buzziest trailers to come out of this year’s Comic-Con was Suicide Squad. As Russ put it, the footage teased “a viciously detailed film, with a real eye for keeping things grim and weird.” It won the interest of fans and non-fans alike. Which is all well and good for Warner Bros. — but if you fall into the latter category, you might’ve found yourself as confused by the trailer as you were intrigued.
While characters like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are familiar to just about everyone on the known planet, that’s definitely not the case with Suicide Squad. Fortunately, with over a year to go until the film’s release, there’s plenty of room to get your bearings, and with our help you’ll be caught up in no time at all. Hit the jump for our rundown of the Suicide Squad characters. Read More »
With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »
Lets face it: You’re probably not very excited about the new Terminator movie. And why should you be? The last two films were varying levels of bad, and this one doesn’t look much better. The marketing focuses on a much older-looking Arnold Schwarzenegger, who seems to be regurgitating catch phrases from decades past for what might seem to be nothing more than a paycheck. And maybe that works in Terminator Genisys‘ favor, as it is much easier to beat expectations when they are low.
I was pleasantly surprised by Terminator Genisys, and I think you will be too. So here is my (virtually) spoiler free Terminator Genisys reaction, giving you my thoughts and observations about the latest installment in the Terminator franchise. Read my Terminator Genisys review after the jump.

Five character posters for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys have just hit the web and they are so metal. Not “metal” in that rocking, awesome way though. I mean literally. Four of the five feature either a terminator, or a piece of a terminator, suggesting the July 1 release is going to be very, very heavy on the metal-to-metal action. Plus, we get to learn the name of the next evolution of Terminator tech. There was the T-800, the T-1000, everyone forgets about the T-X, but now we have the T-3000. Check out all the Terminator Genisys cast character posters below. Read More »
