Zack Snyder, who somehow went from being a fascinating visual stylist to one of the biggest lightning rod filmmakers in Hollywood, has announced a three-day event in which he will showcase director’s cuts of three of his movies: Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He’ll also be appearing in person to participate in Q&As, so hopefully someone will ask him about the mythical “Snyder Cut” of Justice League and we can finally close this chapter of our national history forever. Get the details about the event below. Read More »

Warner Bros. is so disappointed in the box office performance of Justice League that they’re changing up the way they handle their superhero movies going forward. The movie wasn’t nearly as divisive as Batman v Superman, but even those who appreciated Justice League‘s bizarre blend of tones and defend the movie can’t ignore that the movie failed to make the money a blockbuster of that size and cost should make.

Anyone who has been reading this site for any length of time probably knows that I’m a magic geek and two of my idols are the magic duo of Penn & Teller. Not only do they have a magic career spanning 40 years, but their many television shows and movies are equally impressive. So I’m excited to introduce this exclusive short guest post from Penn Jillette himself, presenting a behind the scenes video from his upcoming film Director’s Cut.
The film itself looks really interesting, the kind of story that could only come out of the democratic crowdsourcing process. The supercut-like clip gives you a fast-paced look at the making of the movie, but from the perspective of the clapboard that gets clapped before every single take of the film. Through this perspective, we get to see the film’s shooting locations, we even get a glimpse of Penn in costume as well as the other actors/characters in the film. Read Penn’s guest blog and watch the Director’s Cut clapboard video embedded after the jump.
