The mere fact that a Suicide Squad movie is coming out next year is proof that Warner Bros. isn’t afraid to dip its toe into the weirder corners of the DC comic book world. And that’s great news because the weirder corners of the DC universe are where the best characters tend to hang out. Forget about Batman and Superman and their dawn of justice – let’s see the dark and magical likes of John Constantine and Deadman and Swamp Thing and Zantana team up on the big screen.
While we’re bummed that Justice League Dark will no longer be a Guillermo del Toro joint, we’re excited that it’s still in the works and is still utilizing many of the characters and concepts from del Toro’s screenplay. The film is far enough along in development that the names of certain actors and actresses are starting to come crawling out of the rumor mill. So who’s in contention for Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Madame Xanadu? And who apparently the frontrunner to play villain Anton Arcane? Let’s dive in.

Just last week, the final trailer for James Bond next’s mission, Spectre, arrived with a lot of action. It arrived not long after the film’s new theme song, “Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith, debuted online. And now the film and the theme song meet in the Spectre theme music video.
While there are a lot of shots of Sam Smith singing while looking very sad and introspective, there’s some new footage from Spectre in the video as well, including some shots of James Bond (Daniel Craig) getting frisky with Monica Bellucci and also sharing a tender moment with Léa Seydoux.

Every Bond movie’s gotta have its Bond girls, and Spectre has four of them. Although maybe “Bond girls” isn’t really the correct term here. “I don’t consider myself a Bond girl,” Léa Seydoux said back in February. “I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl.”
In any case, Spectre does have four kickass female characters, played by Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Naomie Harris, and Stephanie Sigman, and today we have the opportunity to get to know them a little better. Get images and details on Bond’s new female characters after the jump. Read More »

It was almost exactly a year ago that we saw the sales trailer for The Whistleblower, a thriller in which Rachel Weisz plays a Nebraska cop working as a peacekeeper in postwar Bosnia who uncovers a sex scandal. The movie played Toronto last September, and hit a few other fests afterward, but we haven’t heard much about the picture since then.

Clint Eastwood is currently shooting his J. Edgar Hoover biography called J. Edgar, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role and Armie Hammer in the key secondary role of Hoover colleague and reported lover Clyde Tolson. Even as the film shoots it is adding cast members to fill out ancillary roles. The latest addition is Stephen Root, a character actor that is always a pleasure to see on screen. (You can see him right now doing great work in Cedar Rapids.)
Mr. Root will play Arthur Koehler, “an introverted man and wood specialist who helps J. Edgar Hoover piece together the mystery of the Lindbergh kidnapping case through an examination of the ladder used by the abductor.” [Variety]
