The CW/DC universe is continuing to expand its superhero franchise, and next year, the creative team behind Arrow and The Flash will be launching Dctv’s first team-based series, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Canadian director Denis Villeneuve isn’t exactly new to the Toronto International Film Festival. Two of his most critically acclaimed films, the dark thrillers Prisoners and Enemy, both premiered at the fest, putting him on the map as one of Canada’s finest filmmakers.
This September, Villeneuve will be back at Tiff with his latest film, Sicario. Following an FBI agent who gets caught up in a dangerous drug war around the U.S./Mexico border, Sicario looks at the more morally complicated aspects of law enforcement.
Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin star, along with Jon Bernthal and Victor Garber. Based on the new trailer, Sicario is looking like one of the most heart-poundingly intense movies of the festival, if not the entire year. Every one of Villeneuve’s movies had us on the edge of our seats, so we don’t expect Sicario will be an exception. »

"Every day across that border people are kidnapped, or killed." Lionsgate has debuted the second full-on trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario starring Emily Blunt and it is intense as all hell. This is the film, which already premiered at Cannes (read our review), starring Blunt as a young FBI agent working the drug cartels in Mexico. The first trailer was solid but this cranks things up and reminds us that there's no safety around any corner. The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan and Victor Garber. This is still one of my most anticipated films to see this fall, can't wait to check it out. Here's the second trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, direct from YouTube (via The Playlist): Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, from a script by Taylor Sheridan, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival as an In-Competition film.

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »

Before Hawkman flies onto The CW as part of the upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the character is set to make his debut on the network’s other superhero shows Arrow and The Flash, Entertainment Weekly has revealed.

The site reports that The CW’s version of Carter Hall is described as “charismatic and wise beyond his years, Hawkman is a natural-born leader with an abundance of charm and confidence—well, that’s because he’s 5,000 years old. Much like the comic book iteration, Carter retains his memories of his past lives each time he is reborn, though his lover (aka Hawkgirl) is born anew. In other words, Kendra Saunders will have no idea who he is at first.”

Earlier this year, The CW showed off an epic teaser trailer for DC's Legends of Tomorrow. But, as it turns out, none of that footage is going to be included in the series itself. One of the most interesting items on display was the return of Sara Lance as The White Canary. While it seemed that she would be getting her origin story told in DC's Legends of Tomorrow, producer Marc Guggenheim confirms that her backstory will be set up in Arrow Season 4.
Caity Lotz's Black Canary was killed off in Arrow Season 3, and her return has been a hot topic of conversation amongst fans. The trailer confirmed that Sara is being brought back from the dead through the Lazarus Pit. While it seemed that her superhero origin would be told in full as part of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, fans will learn how Lance became White Canary in »
Although Fox's X-Files Revival still doesn't have an official title yet, the cast keeps getting bigger and bigger. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose (Dig) have signed on for guest-starring arcs.

As far as high concepts go, Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds playing the same person isn't a bad start. But this switcherooo turns out to be one of the least distracting elements of Tarsem Singh's slick, silly sci-fi Self/less, which gets a running start with smart ideas it can't follow through on.
Kingsley is Damian Hayes, a haughty and emotionally detached real estate tycoon with terminal cancer. Desperate to survive at any cost, he crosses paths with a shadowy scientist (Matthew Goode on enjoyably snakelike form) who offers him a radical new procedure known as shedding, whereby his consciousness is transferred into a healthy, lab-grown new body. What do I have to lose, he asks himself, because presumably he's never heard of Faust.
From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...
The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.
So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.
Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Part of Netflix’s own connected slice of the McU, there has been a lot of confusion over when we »
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s stint in TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite at the Hard Rock Hotel kicked off with a little superhero roll call.

Confused about what's going on with Firestorm in the upcoming "The Flash" spin-off, namely will Robbie Amell still be in the role? His co-star and the character's other half Victor Garber (who plays Martin Stein) says he knows about as much as us:

Directed by Tarsem Singh.
An extremely wealthy man, dying from cancer, undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man. But all is not as it seems when he starts to uncover the mystery of the body’s origin and the organization that will kill to protect its cause.
Self/less is one of those films that wants to be one thing, unfortunately is another thing, and as a result is two ideas clashing leaving behind a fragmented mess of a movie. Typically movies like this were usually always destined to be terrible but Self/less had the potential to be a provocative science-fiction thriller. The problem is that the science-fiction part (and pretty much everything interesting about the story) are ditched for an onslaught of generic action scenes, »

We already know that the third of The CW's superhero series will be the upcoming "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," an ensemble piece featuring fan favorite characters from both "Arrow" and "The Flash" along with some new ones.
At the Comic Con panel for the show, it has been confirmed that the first halves of the new seasons of both "Arrow" and "The Flash" will explicitly set-up elements of 'Legends'. Specifically they will deal with the returns of both Ray Palmer's full-sized Atom and the resurrection of Caity Lotz's Sarah Lance/White Canary.
Lotz says the return of Sarah Lance via the Lazarus Pit means: "I want her to go nuts, off the rocker, that's my plan." She'll also be the most dangerous member of the team since she has no fear of death.
It also sounds like we'll also be properly introduced to Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) and Hawkman - »

Gramercy Pictures released their new sci-fi/action flick, "Self/Less," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was very entertaining, serving up a very interesting plotline that featured plenty of great action and drama. The movie stars: Ryan Reynolds, Ben Kingsley, Derek Luke, Victor Garber, Matthew Goode, Natalie Martinez and Michelle Dockery. In the new flick, Billionaire industrialist ,Damian Hale (Ben Kingsley), is dying of cancer, so he agrees to try a new, radical medical procedure called "shedding," in which his consciousness is transferred to a healthy body, taking on the identity of Edward (Ryan Reynolds). However, there is a side effect that causes him to hallucinate, and he must take some red pills everyday to ward off hallucinations. From there, he takes on his new life, enjoying all the good times that a good-looking, young guy can take part in. This continues until he's »
