Even if you’re not particularly a sports fan, you’ve likely heard about the ongoing controversy over head injuries in the NFL. This winter, a new movie dramatizes that fight.

He tries to alert the public to his findings, but the NFL denies his conclusions and stymies his efforts at every turn. Watch the Concussion trailer after the jump.

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.

Fans of Michael Bay‘s action comedy franchise Bad Boys got some good news last week when Sony Pictures slated both Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 for release in 2017 and 2019. However, fans may want to keep their hype in check, because their favorite parts of the film series aren’t locked in place for those movies yet.
As of now, fans were counting on seeing Will Smith in Bad Boys 3, and the studio knows he will be involved in some capacity. But there’s a chance that he might only produce the films, and not actually star alongside Martin Lawrence. However, he could just as easily end up doing both. It simply hasn’t been determined what the Suicide Squad star wants to do yet. Read More »

This fall we’ll see Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara on screen together in Pan (watch the latest trailer right here), and the two stars were meant to reunite on Collateral Beauty, the next film from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. But Jackman ended up falling away from the project, and a replacement has been sought over the past month or so.
Recently Johnny Depp was tipped as a potential replacement, but instead another international superstar has stepped up to the plate with Will Smith taking the lead role in the drama that still has Rooney Mara attached as the female lead.

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 »

Task Force X is the collection of villains and weirdos that makes up the men and women on a mission in David Ayer‘s DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, and now we’ve got a photo of the whole team.

Update: There’s also a photo that shows Will Smith’s character Deadshot in full masked regalia, set for action.
