Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Suicide Squad In St. Louis

9 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From director David Ayer comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith, Oscar winner Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman and Oscar nominee Viola Davis.

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?

Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC, the film also stars Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, »

First Look at Harley Quinn's Jester Costume in Suicide Squad

26 July 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Out of all the characters in Warner Bros.' upcoming Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) might have the most interesting history. While most of these characters are rooted in the DC Comics, Harley Quinn was actually created for the 1990s TV series Batman: The Animated Series, before transitioning into the comics. Today we have new photos that reveal our first look at one of this character's most iconic outfits, along with a different nightclub/stripper look we haven't seen before.

Earlier today, a B-roll video surfaced that was eventually removed, but images still surfaced from this behind-the-scenes sneak peek that features our first look at Harley Quinn's jester outfit. The first photo features Margot Robbie holding up this outfit, while the second is a behind-the-scenes shot with director David Ayer and Jared Leto, where the costume is on display via a mannequin. We don't know for sure yet »

Wonder Woman Trailer Arrives from Comic-Con

23 July 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The superhero movie craze has been going on for quite some time now, and still, there has been no quality female led superhero movie made in that time. That is all about to change as Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Wonder Woman. Marvel Studios may be ahead of the curve in a lot of ways, but this is something that DC managed to beat them to in a really big way. And by the looks of it, they did it right.

Warner bros. first debuted the trailer during their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, which is currently taking place in Downtown Dan Diego, California. Prior to this, the only footage we had seen from Wonder Woman was during the CW's 1-hour Justice League special a handful of months ago, and it didn't really show much. But what it did show was promising. This is real deal footage though, »

How Batman is Utilized in 'Suicide Squad'

11 July 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Back when Suicide Squad was filming, it seemed like there was no semblance of security on set. There were dozens of photos of the Caped Crusader atop the Joker's flamboyant Infiniti G35, and no indication that the studio even cared about making Batman's involvement in the film a secret.

“Well we had to make a choice of do we shoot the movie or don’t we shoot the movie?" Producer Charles Roven told Collider in their set visit. "Do we tell the story we want to tell and block the streets off so the people of Toronto don’t see anything? We just said, ‘Ok you’re gonna see what you’re gonna see.’ But he has purpose for what he’s doing, and you couldn’t tell the story of the Suicide Squad—as you mentioned so many of the characters that are in that squad had some »

"Suicide Squad" Reports Talk Batman, Villain

11 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A set visit embargo was lifted this morning for the upcoming David Ayer "Suicide Squad" feature with numerous reports going online about this highly anticipated film adaptation of the DC Comics title.

A couple of key quotes from those involved have also revealed how Ben Affleck's Batman fits into the overall storyline, and some vague details of the 'Adversary' - a villain that has yet to be shown in the promotional material. First up, producer Charles Roven talked about Batman's appearance in the film and why he was essential to it:

"He has purpose for what he's doing, and you couldn't tell the story of the Suicide Squad - as you mentioned so many of the characters that are in that squad had some interaction with him in order to get into Belle Reve, so you have to deal with that at the very least.

If you send a feminist to the 'Suicide Squad' set, you're gonna get uncomfortable questions

11 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Set visits are like a blind date. You know a little about them before you show up, but you’re never really sure what you’re going to get until it’s too late to back out.  Which is how I found myself in Toronto in June of 2015 asking director David Ayer just what he was thinking when designing costumes for the women of Suicide Squad. After all, the men are in armor and or at least fully-clothed (even Killer Croc!), but all of the women are baring skin. I asked Ayer what the deal was because it was a little disheartening. “I just wanted to see Waller in a bikini. I mean really that drove everything for me. [Laughs.] For me it's, if you look at the aesthetic of comic books and you look at how the imagery of it and sort of what it means and what it does »

Multiple Warcraft Sequels Teased By Film's China Twitter Account

10 July 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It was a tough year for director Duncan Jones.  He lost his dad, rock icon David Bowie, and saw his passion project, the live-action Warcraft movie open to scathing reviews and an abysmal domestic box office return.  However, the film performed admirably overseas and is still going strong in a few territories.  Will that be enough for Legendary Pictures and Universal to move ahead with a sequel?  If the film's Chinese Twitter account is to be believed, that certainly is the case.   For more background information on the project and the likelihood of a sequel, head over to our sister site, GameFragger.com. Warcraft arrives in theaters on June 10, 2016. The film is a 3D epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based upon Blizzard Entertainment’s globally-renowned universe. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Duncan Jones, the film is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production. »

How the 'Warcraft' Movie Failed

24 June 2016 1:53 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The makers of the Warcraft movie did everything right. They tapped a video game universe with an immense collection of lore and backstories as source material. Director Duncan Jones had indie cred, a commercial and critical hit in Source Code, and a verifiable history of love for the games he was drawing from. His actors were intriguing performers who had shown great potential in other roles. Dean Redman, who plays Varis, said Jones helped the actors see their characters' motivations and goals, and then gave them the freedom to express »
