LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.
Below, watch The Lego Batman Movie TV spots.

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.
Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »
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.

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 »
