The release of Suicide Squad is still a couple months away, but Warner Bros. Pictures has already begun the onslaught of marketing on television with a batch of TV spots that debuted earlier this week during the NBA Finals. There’s a lot riding on the next film from the DC Comics cinematic universe after the studio was not happy with the box office performance and reception of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. Thankfully, everything we’ve seen so far paints this as the DC Comics movie that will make fans and general audiences alike very happy.

Just over a week ago, we learned that Warner Bros. Pictures was considering expanding their future roster of DC Comics films with a spin-off that would focus on Margot Robbie reprising her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn. Instead of being a solo outing for the villain, the movie would feature a new ensemble of characters with Batgirl and Birds of Prey mentioned as possibly appearing. However, she might not be the only Task Force X member getting a spin-off.
A new rumor reveals that Warner Bros. is also considering other Suicide Squad spin-offs for the other members of the villain team being assembled on the big screen for the first time this summer. Find out more below. Read More »
If you’re one of the DC Comics fans who ended up disappointed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the good news is that there’s one more film you can look forward to later this year that will expand the cinematic universe and might lessen the blow. Suicide Squad is bringing together a bunch of villains and nefarious criminals from the comic books for a ragtag assembly of unlikely heroes who are tasked with unsavory missions, only so that if they go wrong, no one respectable can be blamed.
Now a new Suicide Squad trailer has surfaced from overseas, showing off some new footage from the comic book flick and keeping things a little more fun and fast-paced than the first trailer by dispatching with the ballad portion of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” a little quicker than the first time around.

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 »
