Quantum Mechanix releases Harley Quinn Q-Fig from Suicide Squad

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Quantum Mechanix has announced the release of its chibi-style Harley Quinn Q-Fig from this year’s DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad, which is available to purchase now via the QMx website, priced $14.95.

 

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Friday the 13th Remake and Rings Release Dates Delayed Again

23 September 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, the Friday the 13th remake is getting a new release date. The movie hasn't started shooting yet, and there was no way it was going to be ready by this January. What is kind of surprising is that Paramount Pictures is also delaying its other big horror franchise release by quite a few months. While many were expecting to see the long-anticipated sequel Rings this October, fans will have to wait until next year.

The all-new Friday the 13th, which explores Jason Voorhees' family life by introducing his father for the first time on the big screen, has faced quite a few production delays over the past couple of years. But as Platinum Dunes continues to perfect the script, they have to keep aiming for the next Friday the 13th available on the release calendar. Originally scheduled to hit theaters on January 13, 2017, the movie will now be Paramount Pictures »

Justice League: Henry Cavill Hangs Out With Some Real Heroes In New Photo

22 September 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production continues to truck along on the London set of Justice League, but the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, took time out from filming on Zack Snyder’s 2017 tentpole to hang out with two children as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Proving that not all heroes wear capes, Cavill swung by the UK arm of the charity, dressed to the nines as the Last Son of Krypton, to spend some quality time with some very brave kids. Word of the actor taking time out from Warner’s ensemble film hails from a photo on Cavill’s Instagram feed (which you can see below), revealing standees for the remainder of the DC heroes, including Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg and of course, Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader.

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In October 2016, Including ‘Unforgiven’ and ‘Dazed and Confused’

22 September 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Next month, Netflix offers up a big selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Best Picture winners to teen phenomenons — and we’ve picked seven that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Unforgiven” (available October 1)

The winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture, Clint Eastwood’s 1992 film “Unforgiven” is the last Western he directed and starred in, and he made it count. About an aging outlaw tasked with one final job, the film examines the myths of the West and how they’re perverted and distorted over time, as well as the contradictions within established national archetypes. It’s arguably Eastwood’s defining masterpiece, and one of the very best films of the 90s. See it immediately.

2. “Dazed and Confused” (available October 1)

Henry Cavill Shows Off New Justice League Art for a Good Cause

22 September 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production started on Warner Bros.' Justice League, we haven't seen a whole lot of Henry Cavill on set. We did see the actor sporting Superman's spit-curl in a photo that surfaced last month, but the actor was the only main cast member absent in a video to support the Rezpect Our Water campaign. Earlier today, Henry Cavill shared a very special photo alongside two brave kids and some never-before-seen Justice League superhero art.

The actor revealed the photo on his Facebook page, where he's seen in his full Superman costume along with two young children, Orin and Summer. They are all flanked by full-sized standees representing the rest of the Justice League cast, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Here's what Henry Cavill had to say on Facebook about these two brave children. »

Time-Warner boss says DC Films have room for improvement creatively

22 September 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

2016 was meant to be the year that the DC Extended Universe exploded onto the scene, and while both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad have performed well at the box office, they’ve been mauled by critics, and left audiences divided.

We’ve already heard from DC Films boss Geoff Johns with regards to the studio adopting a new, lighter approach to the movies starting with Justice League, and now Time-Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes has stated on an investor conference call that there is “a little room for improvement”, but it’s something they are addressing.

“These movies were very successful in the strategic aims and the financial aims that we have for them,” said Bewkes (via Seeking Alpha). “The reboot of Batman with Ben Affleck was a big success. We can do a little better on the creative … What you shouldn’t take away is to be worried about them. »
