Watch: It's God Vs. Man In New Trailer For 'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

11 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It doesn't need to be repeated but Warner Bros. has a lot riding on "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice." So, they aren't playing coy when it comes to marketing the movie, and today comes yet another trailer which offers a slightly different tone, some new footage, and confirms this is a Zack Snyder joint all the way. Read More: Watch: The Bat Is Dead In New Clip From 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice' You know the basic rundown by now: Ben Affleck is an older gritty Batman, who doesn't take so kindly to Henry Cavill's Superman's destructive tendencies. Thus, they become enemies until they united against a common foe in Doomsday, with a little help from Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. According to Kevin Smith, Affleck will be a great Batman (see below), but it doesn't take much to get him excited. "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice »

Johnny Depp Stars in Funny or Die’s Donald Trump Biopic, Tragically Too Late for Oscar Season

10 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mordecai. The Wolf from Into the Woods. That little weird French-Canadian detective from Kevin Smith’s Tusk. Johnny Depp has made a career out of transformation, and he’s done it again in Funny or Die’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie. According to director Ron Howard, the 50-minute film adaptation of Trump’s 1987 memoir/business-advice book, directed by Drunk History’s Jeremy Konner and written by @midnight’s Joe Randazzo, was found at a yard sale outside Phoenix. Then again, Ron Howard is a notorious liar. Depp stars alongside Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler, and Kristen Schaal, with Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump. You can watch the entire film here to see Depp’s miraculous mutation, and you can be goddamn sure when Donald Trump wins the presidency, his first point of order will be getting Johnny Depp an Oscar, which will then be made out of pure brass. »

Multiple surprise DC cameos featured in The Flash – ‘Welcome to Earth-2′

10 February 2016 2:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Spoilers for last night’s episode of The Flash follow…

During last night’s episode of The Flash, ‘Welcome to Earth-2′, Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen traveled through the multiverse, during which the showrunners delivered a number of surprise DC cameos…

Perhaps the biggest of all was Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl, who featured ahead of the CBS show’s big crossover with The Flash

We also got to see Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen sporting a goatee…

As well as our first look at Johnathon Schaech as Jonah Hex ahead of his DC’s Legends of Tomorrow appearance…

A Legion ring, following Geoff Johns’ tease that the Legion of Super-Heroes could be set to feature on the small screen…

And finally, John Wesley Shipp’s Scarlet Speedster from the 90s Flash TV series…

So, can we now assume that all of DC’s television shows exist in the same multiverse? »

E!’s New Web Series ‘Hashtaggers’ Blends Comedy With Celebrity Cameos

9 February 2016 9:12 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

E! has launched a new comedy web series that fits its demographic. The NBCUniversal-owned channel is the home of Hashtaggers, which takes place at an “affordable” social media agency.

The four protagonists in Hashtaggers are low-level grunts who run the Twitter accounts of major celebrities. Or, as the show’s opening puts it: “In Hollywood,” it reads, “no one does 140 characters like these four characters.”

In each episode, the Hashtaggers take control of a new celebrity account and use it to drum up some interest on the Internet. The celebrities themselves show up to share their own opinions, and Hashtaggers is filled with fun cameos, ranging from William Shatner to Snooki to Kevin Smith. Here’s the first web series, in which the Hashtaggers use a Twitter feud to deliver a big social media push for sassy figure skater Johnny Weir.

Pre-order Star Wars: The Force Awakens via Amazon UK or Amazon Us

In this edition of The Week in Star Wars, we’ve got news on The Force Awakens reaching $2 billion, a confirmation of a returning character for Episode VIII, an announcement for Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith talking his Stormtrooper cameo and more…

Our top story this week surrounds the ambiguous Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While the character was featured heavily in the marketing for the movie, the character didn’t end up doing a lot in the movie. Well, perhaps she’ll be given more to do in the Episode VIII, which the actor confirmed she would be appearing in this week. “I will be in the next Star Wars movie. I think that’s an exclusive, actually,” Christie said at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. She »

Kevin Smith, movie critics, and Yoga Hosers

Kevin Smith’s new movie, Yoga Hosers, has been hit hard by critics. But both they and he have changed a little…

It’d be reasonable to say that writer and director Kevin Smith has had a more vocal and sometimes uneasy relationship with film critics than most filmmakers over the past five or ten years.

Infamously, he voiced his discontent with critics after the less than stellar response to his studio comedy, Cop Out. Back in 2010, he wrote on his Twitter feed that "from now on, any flick I'm ever involved with, I conduct screenings thusly: you wanna see it early to review it? Fine: pay like you would if you saw it next week".

There were interesting points in this (many of which were lost in the internet mass of noise that followed), and in an indirect way, it all seemed to build towards Smith's impressive horror Red State, »
