Justice League Photo Introduces the New Trinity

20 December 2016 2:14 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In less than a year, DC Comics fans are going to get to see the Justice League unite for the first time ever in live-action. There is some hesitation after the mixed reaction to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the marketing materials released by Warner Bros. so far have given fans hope. Now, we have another new image to get us amped for what is an important and hopefully great superhero movie.

The new image comes courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and doesn't unite the entire Justice League, but it does feature a few key members. The picture features Batman (Ben Affleck}, Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) as the New Trinity, with Superman still buried six feet underground. Director Zack Snyder is in the middle of editing the movie, but gave a brief comment to EW about it. Here is what he had to say. »

‘Justice League’: The Flash Joins Batman, Wonder Woman in New Image

20 December 2016 1:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The upcoming “Justice League” is starting to feel almost like a family get-together.

Ezra Miller, who plays the Flash, referred to Batman as a “Dad” and Aquaman as “Uncle Fish Curry,” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. So it’s probably not a step too far to consider Wonder Woman as a stern mother and the Flash as perhaps a wise-cracking child?

In the interview, which was accompanied by a new still from the film of Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and the Flash all suited and booted, Miller described his character as the Ringo Starr of the Justice League crew, explaining that “he annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone.”

The movie will also see Henry Cavill reprise his Superman role, while Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher will step into the roles of Aquaman and Cyborg, respectively. Back in October, the film’s director, »

Justice League: Ezra Miller Calls The Flash The 'Ringo Starr' Of The Team

20 December 2016 7:33 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Moments ago, I shared with you a newly-released promotional still for Justice League that shows off The Flash (Ezra Miller), Batman (Ben Affleck), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), standing around in all of their demigod glory. That photo came courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which is owned by DC Comics parent company Warner Bros.

Included in an upcoming preview feature for Justice League in EW is this fun little quote from Miller about the role he feels his Flash plays on the Justice League team:

“Flash is Ringo Starr. He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone. Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too. (He’s had a long life of fighting crime.) ­Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she’s annoyed with the Flash, she’s still very compassionate.”

Ringo, of course, has always been joked about as everyone's least »

The “Justice League” is ready for battle in a new image from the upcoming film. In the image (below), we see Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) looking off into the distance, ready to combat whatever the forces of evil can throw at them.

Breaking: "Holy Epic New Justice League Still, Batman!"

20 December 2016 7:20 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Yesterday I shared with you a story about a fan's encounter with Justice League director Zack Snyder, where he assured them that "promo" for the film was going to start "really soon."

Boy, he wasn't kidding.

While we're still expecting a new trailer to drop for Justice League, and possibly as soon as this Sunday, Warner Bros. [via Entertainment Weekly] has just released this gorgeous new still from the DC epic that's going to bring many of their most famous heroes together for the first time:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, »

20 December 2016 7:11 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly has released a new image from the upcoming Justice League movie, along with a brief comment from Zack Snyder, who said he is “super happy with the chemistry of my league of justice doers.”

The Flash star Ezra Miller also commented on what the team’s dynamic will be like, especially since this iteration of Flash is the youngest member of the Justice League. “Flash is Ringo Starr, he annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone. Uncle Fish Curry (Aquaman) is very grumpy. Dad (Batman) gets grumpy too. ­Wonder Woman is very considerate, so even though she’s annoyed with the Flash, she’s still very compassionate.”

Rogue One: Let's Talk About Darth Vader's Castle... (Details & Concept Art Included!)

20 December 2016 7:06 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of the things that left a big impression on me when I caught Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last week was the fact that we finally got a great look at the place Darth Vader calls home. I recall talking to my friends after the screening about the fact that Gareth Edwards was given the uniquely incredible responsibility of showing the world what Vader's lair looked like, some 40 years after the world first fell in love with the character. Pretty neat stuff. 

So I've been digging around trying to find out everything I can about the impressive, monolithic structure that we saw on the lava planet Mustafar, and wanted to share with you what I've discovered about Darth Vader's castle in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

For starters, let's just tackle why Vader lives on the desolate, fiery planet of Mustafar to begin with, aside from it being badass:

Batman, The Flash And Wonder Woman Assemble In New Justice League Action Shot

20 December 2016 7:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there’s one core element that can make or break a superhero ensemble movie – or indeed any film crammed with an all-star cast – it’s chemistry. Forget city-levelling CG destruction or scenery-chewing villains, more often than not it’s the interplay between those costumed heroes that tends to resonate with audiences the most after the credits roll, and in 2017, director Zack Snyder will be bringing together DC’s finest for the Justice League movie.

Earmarked for November of next year, production on the 2017 tentpole has all but entered the home stretch, with Snyder sharing scores of set photos to give fans but a taste of what’s to come. The latest hails from Entertainment Weekly and it’s a doozy, bringing together three of DC’s greatest heroes in Bats, Wonder Woman and The Flash.

Yes, it seems Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Ezra Miller’s characters are transfixed by something (someone? »

A new Trinity assembles in amazing photo from Zack Snyder’s Justice League

20 December 2016 6:41 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Josh Wilding

There have been rumblings lately that we’d get a new look at Justice League before the end of 2016, and this may very well be it! As you can see below, an incredible new shot has been released featuring Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) standing side by side as they stare down an unknown threat. Steppenwolf, perhaps?

If you’re a fan of the comic books, you’ll know that “The Trinity” is Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, but with the Man of Steel M.I.A. for a big chunk of Justice League, it seems like we can expect the Fastest Man Alive to take his place for at least a little while here.

“Flash is Ringo Starr,” Miller (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) says. “He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone. »

Awesome New Justice League Still Features Batman, The Flash And Wonder Woman Assembled

20 December 2016 5:32 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Director Zack Snyder recently revealed that we'd see a promo for Justice League this month, and while we assumed he was talking about a new trailer, there's a chance he meant this new image that just debuted over at EW. The pic gives us a great new look at The Flash (Ezra Miller), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), as they gaze intently at something... or someone. Could this be the moment in the movie that Superman returns from the grave? You can check it out below along with some new quotes from Miller, who offers up a frank assessment The Scarlet Speedster and some of his teammates. “Flash is Ringo Starr. He annoys everybody, but he doesn’t have any specific beef with anyone. Uncle Fish Curry [Aquaman] is very grumpy. Dad [Batman] gets grumpy too.

Star Wars: Rogue One - Gareth Edwards On How They Brought Back A Certain Set Of Characters For The Third Act

19 December 2016 10:17 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Lucasfilm’s recently-released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story managed to be quite the surprise this past week. While many fans expected the movie to be an entertaining, solid entry in the franchise, not many expected it to be as great as it was. Even if you take away all the fan service, I’d argue the film still holds up as a more-than-serviceable entry in the long-running franchise.

At the same time, some of the nods to the original trilogy definitely managed to push the film into slightly more memorable territory — even if you disapprove of some of the characters they brought back for little more than for said fan service. Needless to say, this also applies to a certain set of pilots who managed to make it into the film in the closing act. »

19 December 2016 10:14 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In just about a month, Vin Diesel will be returning to the xXx series that he helped to launch- before promptly abandoning it; Kind of like he did with the Fast & Furious franchise. In January, we'll be treated to xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and, this time around, the film is more of an ensemble affair. 

One of the notable members of the cast of the D.J. Caruso-directed sequel is Donnie Yen, who's currently cementing himself as a standout in the worldwide smash Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The new poster features Yen quite prominently.

You can scope out the new poster for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage right here:

Watch the First Trailer for Luc Besson’s Space Opera ‘Valerian’

10 November 2016 7:09 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first trailer for Luc Besson’s sci-fi epic “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” landed on planet Earth Thursday morning.

The film is based on the French comic series “Valerian and Laureline” and stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian and Cara Delevingne as Laureline. Herbie Hancock, John Goodman, Rihanna, Clive Owen and Ethan Hawke also star. Besson directed the film and wrote the screenplay.

The 90-second teaser trailer shows DeHaan and Delevingne teaming up to the tune of the Beatles’ “Because,” which Besson said is the first time the group gave up rights to the song.

“I’m so happy,” he said, explaining that he had assumed Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr would have declined their request.

Set in the 28th century, “Valerian” exists in a time when humanity has discovered the craft of time travel.

Besson launched the trailer on IMDb’s Facebook live feed, and also »

'Blindman': The Story Behind a Drunk Beatle's Spaghetti Western

2 November 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Paul McCartney shocked the world in April 1970 with his announcement of the Beatles' break-up, drummer Ringo Starr added a surprise of his own by becoming (initially, at least) the most musically active member of the former Fab Four.

As he would later recount in the lyrics of "Early 1970," the deceptively jaunty b-side of his 1971 hit "It Don't Come Easy," Starr was the only Beatle who didn't have any serious beef with any other member of the band at the time. Feeling lost without the family dynamic of the musical »
