birds of prey movie title

From the moment Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn appeared in the first trailer for 2016’s Suicide Squad, it was clear Robbie was a perfect fit for the character. She’s one of the few brights spots in that total mess of a movie, so it’s no surprise Warner Bros. is bringing her back in Birds of Prey, a female-centric spin-off movie that sees Harley Quinn team up with characters like Black Canary and Huntress.

Now Robbie has taken to Instagram to reveal the full Birds of Prey movie title, and…well, it’s a bit extra, as the kids say these days. Read on to discover the title in its full glory.

rocky 3 idea

Rocky III saw Sylvester Stallone‘s persistent pugilist stepping into the ring to battle Mr. T, but according to Stallone, there was an even crazier idea for the film at first. In an old interview, Stallone revealed his original Rocky III idea had a half-blind Rocky Balboa duking it out in Roman Coliseum, with the Pope himself in the audience.

Aquaman director James Wan confirmed that almost 90% of the comic book movie is in full IMAX aspect ratio. The visually eye-popping technology has been used more frequently in blockbusters since Christopher Nolan helped spearhead the use of IMAX technology in big action sequences in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Usually IMAX is used for a few key action sequences, but it seems that the Aquaman IMAX scenes will take up the majority of the movie.

Watchmen photos

We’re intensely curious about what Damon Lindelof is cooking up over at HBO with his new Watchmen TV series, but in true mystery box fashion, the creator/showrunner is keeping us largely in the dark about the specifics of what he’s doing. Instead, the Watchmen Instagram account has revealed two new looks at some of the show’s characters, giving us a better view of the masked police officer characters seen in last month’s first look photo. Take a look below. Read More »

they shall not grow old trailer

Peter Jackson has put his cutting-edge visual technology to good use with They Shall Not Grow Old, a World War I documentary unlike any other. The documentary takes BBC archival footage shot during the war 100 years ago, and brings it to life via a state-of-the-art restoration and colorization process — and in 3D for good measure. The documentary has already aired in the U.K. on BBC Two, but now the stunning film comes to U.S. theaters for a limited time next month. Watch the They Shall Not Grow Old trailer below.

serenity trailer new

The sexy thriller Serenity was originally supposed to hit theaters in October – but that didn’t happen, and we all sort of forgot about it. Now it’s back!

In this sun-dappled noir, McConaughey is reunited with Interstellar co-star Anne Hathaway, who here plays a bleached-blonde looking to bump off her husband, Jason Clarke.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

This post contains spoilers for Castlevania season 2.

When you think of “Prestige Television,” what are the necessary elements? For me, the main ingredients are a deeply interconnected narrative with multiple moving parts that require the viewer’s full attention, a significant production budget, and emotionally resonant acting. For spice, most shows that get labeled as Prestige™ tend to be on the dark side, with characters dealing with heavy burdens and traumas. Think Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead or Breaking Bad or Westworld. Using that criteria, I would submit that Netflix’s Castlevania qualifies as a whole new sub-genre: Prestige Animation.

Everything about Castlevania is an over-dramatic gothic confection sprinkled with modern sardonic wit. Brutally violent, the plot hinges on the death (or fridging) of Dracula’s human wife which causes him to go berserk. As vengeance, he promises to kill all humans. It is up to the last scion of the Belmont family (Richard Armitage), a mage (Alejandra Reynoso), and Dracula’s son (James Callis) to put a stop to it. By itself, that narrative is enough. Heck, it’s already a better story than any other video game adaptation to date. But writer Warren Ellis wasn’t content to tell a simple, linear story because life is neither simple nor linear.

And he’s introduced one of the best new villains of 2018 in the show.
