We’ve now had two seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil tv series which has introduced a lot of classic antagonists: The Kingpin, Elektra, The Hand and Punisher. But the biggest omission so far has to be Bullseye, a merciless assassin that never misses his mark, able to turn anything into a lethal weapon. Daredevil star Charlie Cox is fighting to bring in Bullseye for Daredevil Season 3, but some of his co-stars don’t want it to happen.

Ben Affleck’s Batman will be back onscreen next year for Justice League, but before we get there we’ll see a completely different version of the Dark Knight, in the form of a tiny plastic minifig voiced by Will Arnett. Yup, we’re just a few months away from the release of The Lego Batman Movie, which picks back up with the endearingly obnoxious take on the character first introduced in 2014’s The Lego Movie.
We’ve seen little teases of The Lego Batman Movie here and there over the past several months, and now a brand-new Lego Batman Movie trailer offers our best look yet. Watch it below. Read More »
The cast for director Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle in Time adaptation keeps getting better and better. The film is already set to star Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and in the lead role, Storm Reid. A few more additions to the cast have been announced, including Zach Galifianakis, who we most recently saw in Keeping Up with the Joneses. Below, learn more about the Zach Galifianakis A Wrinkle in Time casting.

Since we’re right in the middle of election season, we’re undoubtedly going to be seeing presidential candidates popping up everywhere leading up to November. Most appearances will be very serious in nature on various news programs, talks shows and more, but every now and then we’ll get to have some laughs at their expense too.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on a new episode of Funny or Die’s ongoing web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, and though it’s not quite as charming or funny as Barack Obama’s appearance back in 2014, there are still some really good laughs to be had here.
Watch Hillary Clinton on Between Two Ferns after the jump. Read More »

Jared Hess‘ Masterminds centers on a real-life $17 million heist, but Ocean’s 11 or Inside Man this ain’t. Instead, the thieves behind the operation include an unassuming armored car driver played by Zach Galifianakis, his flirty co-worker played by Kristen Wiig, their not-very-brilliant mastermind played by Owen Wilson. Jason Sudeikis stars as a hitman, Kate McKinnon as Galifianakis’ wife, and Leslie Jones as the cop who’s out to get them all. Yep, this film stars three of the four new Ghostbusters. Watch the new Masterminds trailer below. Read More »
Standing before me in black tactical gear, hair combed back but just a bit unruly, Jon Hamm looks exactly like Sterling Archer. He’s not wearing a tactleneck, but aside from that detail the illusion is perfect. As seemingly everyone did, I watched Hamm on Mad Men for years, so the timbre of his voice and his patterns of speech are intimately familiar. But in this getup I expect — I want — him to sound like Archer.
Jon Hamm knows this. He’s voiced a character on the show, after all. And would you be shy if knew you were the living incarnation of TV’s greatest/most irritating spy? Probably not. “Lanaaaaaaa!” he bellows before anyone can ask him to do so.
We’re outside the Atlanta set of Keeping Up With the Joneses, a 20th Century Fox movie in which Hamm plays half of a super-spy couple living undercover in the suburbs. His character Tim Jones is partnered with Natalie Jones, played by Gal Gadot, in life and work. We see the glamorous, ultra-capable pair through the eyes of a much more mundane couple, who are more than slightly agog as the spies-in-disguise set up stakes in their quiet, tree-lined neighborhood.

Between the Fast and Furious movies and her ongoing role as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ DC universe, Gal Gadot has plenty of action-hero cred. What she hasn’t really had a chance to do is show off her comedy chops. But that changes now, thanks to director Greg Mottola (of Superbad and Paul).
Gadot and Jon Hamm star as the Joneses, a glamorous, sophisticated, picture-perfect couple who move into a perfectly ordinary suburb. They dazzle their new neighbors, especially Jeff (Zach Galifianakis) and Karen (Isla Fisher). What Jeff and Karen don’t realize right away is that the Joneses are spies. Watch the Keeping Up With the Joneses trailer below. Read More »

Alicia Vikander was downright inescapable in 2015. The Swedish actress had no fewer than seven films out in U.S. theaters last year — including The Danish Girl, which won her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She’ll be a little less ubiquitous in 2016, but there’ll still be plenty of her to go around. She’s got Jason Bourne coming this summer and The Light Between Oceans due this fall. And before either of those hit cinemas, she’ll be seen in Tulip Fever.
Directed by Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), the romantic drama follows Sophia (Vikander), a young woman in 17th century Amsterdam. She’s married to a wealthy older man, Cornelis (Christoph Waltz), but risks everything when she falls into a passionate affair with Jan (Dane DeHaan), the artist hired to paint the couple. Tom Stoppard wrote the screenplay, and it’s based on the book of the same title by Deborah Moggach. Watch the first Tulip Fever trailer after the jump. Read More »

Don’t tell anyone, but my most highly anticipated Batman movie isn’t Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or even Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie. It’s The Lego Batman Movie, featuring Will Arnett as the grizzled and raspy voice of the Caped Crusader. I mean, who can who can resist a description like “About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann,” as director Chris McKay recently put it?
We first met the Arnett’s version of the character in 2014’s The Lego Movie, but the spinoff promises an even more up-close-and-personal look at the solitary vigilante. Following a first look at some Lego Batman Movie photos this week, Warner Bros. has dropped the very first The Lego Batman Movie trailer, and you can watch it after the jump.

“We’re making About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann.” If that quote doesn’t raise your hopes and dreams for The Lego Batman Movie, then what will? Funnily enough, both Christopher Nolan and The Lego Batman Movie director, Chris McKay, were inspired by Mann’s filmography for their Batman films — but obviously we should expect a slightly more comedic spin on the director’s crime movies in this instance.
The above quote comes from McKay, who describes this Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) as “an island onto himself.” Read what else McKay and Arnett had to say about the film, and check out the first The Lego Batman Movie images, below.
