Today we have an extended Japanese TV spot for the upcoming "Terminator Genisys," showing some new footage from the film. Check out the TV spot below. Plot: The story is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor's mother, Sarah (Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won't ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected. "Terminator Genisys" is directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and is set to hit theaters on July 1st. TV Spot: »

Jared Leto Joker Image from Suicide Squad Reveals a Tattooed Psychopath

25 April 2015 9:37 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The third time's a charm for Suicide Squad director David Ayer. Late Friday afternoon he released his third Jared Leto Joker image from the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe film, and unlike the first two, this one wasn't a tease at all.

Ayer's design for the Joker is a striking image of a modern deranged man riddled with tattoos, rings, silver teeth and the character's signature green hair. Unlike the anarchist Heath Ledger Joker from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight before him and the gangster Jack Nicholson Joker from Tim Burton's Batman, Leto's makeup depicts a man who is a full blown psychopath from head to toe.

There are rumors that the reason the Joker is imprisoned and becomes a member of the Suicide Squad is that he killed Robin, former sidekick of Ben Affleck's Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There is no firm evidence »

Suicide Squad: Is This Another Pic Of Jared Leto's 'Joker' On Set?

Real image of Leto's Joker or a well-made fake? We're trying to source the pic now, but if it does turn out to be real it confirms that at some point in Suicide Squad the character will sport the classic lipstick grin he seems to be missing in the officially released shot.

David Ayer reveals Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

25 April 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director David Ayer has released the first image of Jared Leto’s Joker from the third film in the DC Cinematic Universe, Suicide Squad. It’s a definite departure from Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning portrayal of the character…

First impressions are often misleading, as many fans were shocked by the early behind-the-scenes photos of Ledger. No doubt these very strong choices by Ayer will lead to some polarizing reactions from fans.

I’m guessing this might break the internet in half.

What do you think about the new Joker?

Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, , Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller, »

First Official Picture of Jared Leto as The Joker in 'Suicide Squad'

25 April 2015 12:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Suicide Squad director David Ayer took to Twitter on Friday evening to offer up the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics Multiverse feature, as the Oscar winner is sporting several tats including the word "Damaged" across his forehead. I'm not necessarily familiar with the variety of Jokers found in the comic books, but this definitely has the appearance of being far afield Heath Ledger's version in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and even appears to be far more zany than Jack Nicholson's portrayal in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). In fact, they appear to be going a whole new route, almost the permanently psychologically damaged version if I'm reading this look correctly... am Ic That said, while I've never read a "Batman" comic book in my life, I'm well aware of Alan Moore's "Killing Joke", which seems to be the »

First Look At Leto’s Joker For ‘Suicide Squad’

24 April 2015 11:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So we’ve seen vague pictures of Leto going through the make-up process for his role as The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, but we’ve just been given the first complete look at the Clown Prince Of Crime, and it’s truly something to behold. Taking a completely different route, the look adds dentures, jewellery, and tattoos…lots and lots of tattoos, to a fairly classic look. This is obviously a Joker who has been active for quite some time, in-line with Affleck’s Batman.

It’s certainly a look that is going to divide opinion, but I really like that it’s going in a different direction. However, I just can’t imagine The Joker sitting down to get his ink done. This also goes further to establishing the darker world of DC, which contrasts with Marvel’s lighter superheroic action, which is something that has »

Jared Leto’s Joker Officially Revealed in Suicide Squad Image

24 April 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the Clown Prince of Crime's 75th birthday, director David Ayer gave those looking forward to Suicide Squad a fitting present: the first full, official look at Jared Leto as The Joker.

Ayer revealed the eye-popping photo on Twitter, showing a shirtless Joker wearing one purple glove (pressed against his green hair) with eyes wide and chrome-toothed mouth open wide in what looks to be a crazed laugh. His chest and arms are covered in tattoos, and his forehead is marked with one telling word: "Damaged."

Time will tell if Leto's performance can come anywhere near the intensely immersive depths of Heath Ledger's mesmerizing turn as the character in 2008's The Dark Knight, but the new take on the Harlequin of Hate is certainly memorable.

Shooting on Suicide Squad is currently underway with Ayer in the director’s chair and Charles Roven and Richard Suckle producing. Warner Bros. »

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

First Look: Jared Leto as The Joker in David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'

24 April 2015 5:59 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Hahahahaha... Finally, after teasing photos of cutting the hair, David Ayer has revealed The Joker in full. Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto plays the DC villain in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad, that David Ayer is preparing to direct with one hell of a cast. Besides Leto, it has Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. This first look is primarily just a promo shot, not an actual still from the film which just started shooting this month up in Toronto. He's got plenty of nice tattoos, that signature green hair, and a purple glove. You may also remember that other reference to The Killing Joke before this Joker reveal. This is a freaky way to introduce him, but damn does he look cool. David Ayer writes: "The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad" See the other cast »

Russell Crowe directs himself in 5 new featurettes from The Water Diviner

24 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Russell Crowe has returned to his native Australia for his directorial debut, The Water Diviner.

The film follows an Australian farmer (Crowe) who travels to Turkey after the First World War in search of his sons who went missing in the Battle of Gallipoli. It’s understandable that the patriotic Crowe settled on the Gallipoli campaign, as the battle is the focal point of Australia and New Zealand’s “Remembrance Day” equivalent, Anzac Day.

For The Water Diviner, Crowe has enlisted the help of breakout Australian actor Jai Courtney, who you may recognize as the Dauntless recruiter (and probable psychopath) Eric in The Divergent Series. Quickly making a name for himself in the “geek” scene, Courtney has been cast as Kyle Reese in Terminator Genisys and one of the many villains in Suicide Squad.

The Water Diviner also stars Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), and will play select Cineplex theatres in Toronto, »

Old & Young Schwarzenegger Fight in 'Terminator: Genisys' TV Spots

24 April 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Skynet has created a new Terminator to stop us." After the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys gave away a pretty big plot twist for the franchise sequel, some international TV spots bring that twist to the forefront of the marketing in Asian markets. However, there's also some new bits of footage here, including shots of the aged Terminator (old Arnold Schwarzenegger) fighting with the Schwarzenegger from the 80s. In addition, we also get to see some more shots of the advanced Terminator coming to blows with Schwarzenegger. And they're still milking that "I'll be back," line for everything it's worth. Watch below! Here's the international TV spots for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount International: You can still watch the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here. Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, »

New Terminator: Genisys TV Spots Reveal More Twists

24 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you caught the last twist-revealing trailer for Terminator: Genisys, then it’s likely that you’re aware of the movie’s unique conceit. The savior of humanity, leader of the resistance and all-around champion of mankind, John Connor is no longer on our side. As the franchise ‘reset’ takes liberties with every aspect of the series beloved by fans, Genisys has strung up its guiding light as the harbinger of doom. There’s no denying the fact that as daring, unexpected moves go, it’s ballsy. But did we really need to know so much about what’s an arguably intriguing plot point?

Paramount’s decision to clue us in to what could have been a Gotcha! moment in theaters wasn’t a mistake, and that particular narrative quirk continues to drive this new batch of international TV spots. The focus of which hones in on the movie »

The Water Diviner | Review

24 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Turkey Dressing: Crowe’s Well-Intentioned Debut Ultimately Mundane

In the comparable tradition of Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner, actor Russell Crowe makes a big budget, historically relevant directorial debut with The Water Diviner, a World War I Australian drama. As penned by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios, both writers accustomed to writing almost exclusively for television, the film’s significance is straightjacketed into a garden variety of manipulative clichés, replete with an unnecessary and oddly provoked romance that ends an otherwise workmanlike tale of woe on a sour note.

Beginning in 1919 Australia, well-digger Joshua Connor (Crowe) lives alone with his wife (Jacqueline McKenzie), using his powers of water divining (basically a concept where a stick or similar apparatus is used to steer a user toward a water source—often called water witching) to continue their idyllic farm. All is not well with the Connor’s, as he comes home to »
