Denzel Washington is not only reprising the role of Troy Maxson from August Wilson‘s hit stage production of Fences, but he’s also directing the adaptation. Washington starred in the play on Broadway back in 2010, and with his feature film, he’s directing a script written by Wilson himself. Also returning to their roles from the 2010 production are Viola Davis, Mykelti Williamson, Stephen McKinley, Henderson, and Russell Hornsby, and we have a first look at the Fences movie.

Now that the reviews for Suicide Squad have hit the interwebs, you might be wondering if the film has a post-credits scene. This weekend when you see Suicide Squad, should you remain in your seat until after the credits finish?

With the release of Suicide Squad just a few days away, the first reviews of the movie have been unleashed on the web. Many who were disappointed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been hoping that Suicide Squad would help get the DC Comics universe back on the right track, injecting some much needed fun and energy into the comic book work. Meanwhile, those who enjoyed Zack Snyder’s superhero face-off were excited at the prospect of seeing some of DC’s most iconic villains grace the big screen together. So how does Suicide Squad fare?
Most of the Suicide Squad reviews have some pretty unkind things to say, with many writing that it has an illogical story, a ridiculous and awful villain, and some pretty sloppy editing. Sadly, it doesn’t sound like this will save the DC Comics universe for those who were already disappointed in it. But there may be hope for those who found themselves disagreeing with critics about Batman v Superman, because even the negative reviews add that there’s some fun to be had among the messiness and the cast makes it better than it otherwise could have been.

There’s a lot riding on Suicide Squad, the third entry in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman made a lot of money, but polarized fans. Among the chief complaints? That the DC films were too grim, too gloomy, and not nearly “fun” enough.
Which is where Suicide Squad comes in. With its zippy pop tunes and its neon color scheme, the Suicide Squad marketing campaign has been all about fun. The trailers and posters promised a movie that’d finally bring jokes back to the DC universe, not to mention a welcome shot of comic book weirdness. So does Suicide Squad get the franchise back on track, or send it veering further off the rails? Read our Suicide Squad spoiler-free review after the jump. Read More »

For months now we’ve heard about how tight the cast of Suicide Squad is, and that camaraderie was definitely on display at the film’s New York press conference this weekend. The stars, director David Ayer, and producers Richard Suckle and Charles Roven talked about the pressures of making the film, the lengths they went to in order to research their roles. They also talked about the unusual and welcome diversity of the Suicide Squad line-up, and some of the crazier on-set antics (one of which involves a naked Jai Courtney).

We’re quickly approaching the release of Suicide Squad and Warner Bros. is no longer being stingy with the footage. Not only have they released eight new clips from the film, they have released eight new clips that touch on characters, details, and plot points that have been specifically left out of the various teasers and trailers released so far. So yeah, please watch all of the clips below, if that is what you care to do (I did). But if you feel like you’ve seen enough and want to go in a little fresh and can happily wait another week and a half, feel free to opt out.

At last year’s Comic-Con, we got our first look at David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. The response to the trailer was enthusiastic, and since then, we’ve seen no shortage of footage, most recently the new extended TV spots highlighting the villains in the ensemble film. If you want another look at the comic book movie, though, then Warner Bros. has unveiled another look at Ayer’s picture just for you.
Below, watch the final Suicide Squad trailer.

Yesterday, Warner Bros. released an extended promo introducing audiences to Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), “one of the scariest characters in the movie” and the mastermind who puts the Suicide Squad together. One of the leaders of that squad is Deadshot (Will Smith). Smith, who’s probably most famous for playing heroes, stars in David Ayer‘s film as the assassin/supervillain. The newest promo tells you all you need to about the character, including the fact only his friends call him by his real name Floyd.

Compared to most of the other Suicide Squad cast members, Viola Davis‘ Amanda Waller seems downright ordinary. Unlike most of these other ragtag supervillains, Waller seems completely sane, wields no high-tech firearms or otherworldly powers, and is technically on the right side of the law. She doesn’t even have a colorful style to help her stand out — in her pressed slacks and tasteful pearls, she looks just like any other 50something professional.
But during our set visit last year, producer Andy Horowitz described her as “one of the scariest characters in the movie,” and a new Suicide Squad extended promo reveals exactly how formidable she can be. As Deadshot puts it, in the understatement of the century, “that is just a mean lady.” Watch the new footage below. Read More »
