Justice League Trailer 1: The Age Of Heroes Is Here

8 hours ago

Coming out of Batman v Superman, there were a whole lot of criticism. While many pointed to the story and characters as the main issue, one other word critics tended to use was “fun.” Simply put, they didn’t think Batman v Superman was “fun,” and apparently if a movie is based on a comic book it needs to be fun. Since then, Warner Bros has been on overdrive trying to incorporate these notes into their films. Suicide Squad suffered a massive overhaul in the editing room, and when discussing Justice League, they were quick to point out its more hopeful nature.

It’s been months and months that we’ve had this narrative thrown at us, and after all that time, Warner Bros has finally released its first official trailer, and I have to say, despite all my misgivings, I’m on board. »

Joe Manganiello Plays Dungeons & Dragons in CelebriD&D on Nerdist and Geek & Sundry’s Project Alpha

20 hours ago

After all these years, Dungeons & Dragons is still going strong.

Many celebrities are well known for playing Dungeons & Dragons, including Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodrigeuz, Whil Wheaton and even Blindspots’s Ashley Johnson.

Now many more celebrities will get their chance to wield a sword, to cast a spell, or rather to roll some dice.

The first episode of CelebriD&D has premiered this week with a 45-minute episode featuring Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike Xxl), who admitted playing D&D since his childhood days.

He joins Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role cast members Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Taliesin Jaffe, along with Nerdist’s Dan Casey and Jessica Chobot in this exciting battle between good and evil.

Manganiello plays Arkhan “The Cruel” in this D&D game. Ironically, he is a paladin and a worshipper of Tiamat. So fitting of him.

Zombieland Director To Helm Valiant's Archer & Armstrong

24 March 2017 4:37 PM, PDT

DC. Marvel. Industry giants, yet not the only names in comics. Not by a long shot.

Valiant is one such company that has been around for quite a while, founded in 1989 by former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter and Steven Massarsky. Like the two industry leaders, we have the Valiant Universe including such titles as X-o Manowar, Harbinger, and Shadowman. Valiant already has a five-picture deal with Sony to bring the Valiant Universe to life, including movie versions of Bloodshot and Harbinger, leading to an Avengers style event in Harbinger Wars

Heat Vision has learned that now that Valiant is developing Archer & Armstrong in house before being shopped around to studios. The project certainly won't be a hard sell, considering the talent that just joined the film.

Archer & Armstrong has already secured Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) to direct a script from Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise). Rossio is also »

I started mowing lawns when I was in 4th grade just to be able to pay for comic books. »

Justice League: New Poster, Plus Every Teaser & Poster Released So Far!

24 March 2017 4:00 PM, PDT

Justice League has a lot of ground to make up for. In the three films released in the DC Extended Universe, none of them have been universally praised or beloved. Sure, there are a select few who sing said praises to Man of Steel, and even Batman v Superman, but it would be an understatement to say that they were underwhelming to fans. When all said and done, fans have generally agreed that the films could have been better, and with properties like this, that’s the last thing you want moviegoers thinking as they’re exiting the theaters. Warner Bros clearly seems to be wanting to shift the narrative with the strong marketing of Justice League.

Since yesterday, Warner Bros and DC Films have released a series of trailer teasers and posters. Each has highlighted a different member of the Justice League (with the exception of Superman), and shown »

Netflix's Godzilla Anime Has A Title, Synopsis, and Poster!

24 March 2017 3:25 PM, PDT

Godzilla is hot, hot, hot right now! Hotter than his atomic breath.

In 2014, the King of the Monsters returned in a big way (pun intended) in Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, the official start of the MonsterVerse. Last year saw the release of Shin Godzilla, the latest Japanese entry in their storied franchise dating back to 1954. And there's more Godzilla to come, both in the MonsterVerse's Godzilla: King Of The Monsters and Godzilla Vs Kong, as well as a new anime film set for release on Nextflix. Said anime film is now officially titled Godzilla: Kaiju Wajusei, which translates to Godzilla: Monster Planet.

We knew little about the film up until this point, but now Anime News Network has updates from Polygon Pictures' official website. More specifically, a poster and full synopsis! 

I don't speak or read Japanese, but the Anime News Network reports the poster reads, »

Akira Rumor: Life Director Daniel Espinosa Is Frontrunner To Helm Manga Adaptation?

24 March 2017 2:44 PM, PDT

There are three anime and manga properties that have pretty much been in development on some level or another for pretty much the past decade. Those films are Ghost in the Shell, Akira, and Death Note. This year will see the release of two of those films after a lifetime in development hell, and that leaves one last adaptation left on the table from the main trio that Hollywood has been circling. If you thought that they had given up on adapting the beloved manga (and even more beloved anime) Akira, then you are sadly mistaken. Yes, like many projects in the business, it seems like it took a bit of a reprieve, but it is by no means dead.

In a recent episode of Meet the Movie Press, The Tracking Board editor-in-chief Jeff Sneider mentioned that Warner Bros was searching for a new director for the manga adaptation, there »

Spider-Man: Homecoming - Check Out The First Two Teaser Posters Now!

24 March 2017 1:58 PM, PDT

It's basically a fact that if DC releases any sort of advertising for their films, let's say, all of the Justice League mini-teasers and posters that are leading to tomorrow's full trailer release, then Marvel Studios follows suit with something huge. Today, Marvel continues that trend with the first two official teaser posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming (domestic and international). And boy, is the domestic one marvelous and completely unlike anything Sony has done.

Marvel Studios now has joint custody of Spider-Man, sharing him with Sony so that he can join his friends in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and everyone can make dump trucks full of money. We've already seen Spidey pop up for a very memorable appearance in Captain America: Civil War just last year, but this year we will see his first solo adventure in Spider-Man: Homecoming. From what we've seen so far, the first Peter Parker to actually »

Arrow 'Disbanded Trailer': The Series Finally Emerges From Batman's Shadow

24 March 2017 1:52 PM, PDT

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for the most recent episode of Arrow.

I've been with Arrow since the very start; through the good, the bad, and Season 4 too. Arrow has (arbuably) returned to form in Season 5, yet it has still failed to fix its most glaring narrative flaw: Arrow has too-long lived in the Batman's shadow. However, after the revelations expressed in last week's pivotal "Kapiushon" episode, the series might finally be establishing itself as something truly different -- whether that's good or bad depends entirely upon where it goes from here. 

The strongest argument against Arrow having a distinct identity, beyond anything but a poor-man's Batman, has resided in the forced duality of Oliver Queen and Green Arrow, played by Stephen Amell. Similiar to the Wayne/Bat paradox, we've endured four and half seasons of the same tired, clichéd premise that these are somehow separate characters, each following differents paths, »

Netflix’s Death Note: Light Meets The Genius Detective L In Official Photo

24 March 2017 1:26 PM, PDT

So 2016 may have been the year that video game movies took a big swing and a miss at mainstreaming the adaptation of their medium, but 2017 looks to be the year of the anime and manga adaptation. In a little over a week, we’ll be getting Ghost in the Shell, and if the trailers — as well as the first five minutes of the movie — are any indication, it looks to be a good time in the theaters. On a more lowkey note, however, is the release of Death Note.

For those who don’t know, Death Note is based on the popular manga by writer Tsugumi Ohba and artist Takeshi Obata. The series ran for about two and a half years in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and had a meteoric rise in the time since then. It’s since been adapted into a Japanese film series, an anime series, and a TV drama. »

Seth Rogen and James Franco Team Up For '90s Teen Drama On Hulu

24 March 2017 12:59 PM, PDT

James Franco and Seth Rogen have been friends and colleagues for a long time now, starting with a different 90's teen series, Freak and Geeks, back in 1999. Since then, they have appeared in countless films together, including what I consider the "Rogen/Franco Trilogy" made up of Pineapple Express, This Is The End, and The Interview; all about the undying bromance between the two on-screen stoners. This doesn't count the many cameos the two have enjoyed in the other's projects and the upcoming, well reviewed, The Disaster Artist.

And that's just acting! Both have experience behind the camera, with Franco directing The Disaster Artist, the documentary Saturday Night, and an episode of the Hulu show he starred in, Stephen King's 11.22.63. Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg have also directed films and TV, from The Interview and This Is The End, to three episodes of AMC's Preacher. Rogen »

Justice League: We Finally See Cyborg In Action With New Teaser & Poster

24 March 2017 12:33 PM, PDT

Pretty much every member we have seen of the Justice League so far sort of has their place in mainstream fandom. It pretty much goes without saying that Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Flash all have their places in the mainstream pop culture zeitgeist, and even Aquaman is pretty well known on some level. There is one member of the Justice League that stands out as a relative unknown: Cyborg. Yes, comic book fans are well aware of the superhero, but as the character has yet to make into an actual film (barring his single scene in Batman v Superman), there are a lot who know little to nothing of the tragic backstory of one Victor Stone.

Power Rangers Review - Go, Go Mixed Bag! Aye, Yai, Yai, Yai, Yai!

24 March 2017 11:35 AM, PDT

Let me preface this review by admitting I wasn't allowed to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a child -- neither the original 1993 television show nor the first 1995 film -- so you have the unique opportunity to experience the new Power Rangers movie through the eyes of an outsider, or the common man, as it were. Are we good? Then let's go, go... review Power Rangers!

Power Rangers focuses on five misfits who do very much fit the Breakfast Club mold. Through different circumstances, including Saturday detention, all end up at the rock quarry when one of them makes a startling discovery. Upon a little excavation, Billy (Rj Cyler) unearths five stones -- that look quite a bit like Infinity Stones... but wrong Universe -- and a buried spaceship. The stones are taken by the five teenagers, blue for Billy, pink for Kimberly (Naomi Scott), black for Zack (Ludi Lin »

Power Rangers Makes $3.6 Million In Thursday Sales, Takes On The Beast

24 March 2017 10:38 AM, PDT

It may only be March, but the weekends are already starting to get pretty darn stacked. This weekend alone we have Power Rangers set to go head to head against Beauty and the Beast, and the weekend following will see the manga adaptation Ghost in the Shell joining the fray. As such, it’s a bit difficult to predict just how these movies will be doing, and how much they will be cannibalizing each other’s box office revenue in weeks to come. So how is newcomer Power Rangers faring against the big, bad Beast?

Early numbers are in for Thursday receipts, and it looks like Power Rangers is off to a strong start, with Thursday numbers coming in at around $3.6 million. This is just a hair lower than Kong: Skull Island, which brought in $3.7 million in its Thursday previews.

So what does this mean in terms of the entirety of the weekend? »

A Crazy New Red Band Trailer You Just Have To See For In Bruges Director's Next Flick

24 March 2017 9:11 AM, PDT

We see a lot of blockbuster, big-budget movie trailers here at Lrm, and sometimes it's easy to overlook smaller films telling simple, personal stories. But every once in a while a new independant feature appears that demands our attention, and isn't afraid to crack us upside the head with its message.

Martin McDonagh, best known for the tragically dark 2008 comedy In Bruges, about a pair of Irish hitmen trying (and failing) to lay low after a botched assassination. In Bruges was wickedly funny and surreal, a great work by a dynamic, new director. However, aside from 2012's little-seen crime-comedy, Seven Psychopaths, McDonagh has been off the grid.

Well, he's resurfaced and judging by the trailer for Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the English-born auteur has made a new film that appears to be his funniest, darkest, and edgiest project to-date.

Justice League: Wonder Woman Gets A Trailer Teaser & Poster

24 March 2017 8:49 AM, PDT

The countdown continues today! Yesterday, Warner Bros began releasing a series of teasers that show off all the members of the Justice League in anticipation of the forthcoming trailer. So far, we’ve seen the likes of Aquaman, Batman, and The Flash, and now Wonder Woman.

Check it out below!

Wonder Woman is in a particularly special position when compared to the other members of the Justice League in that she has a new film coming up very soon. Over the course of the past several months, we’ve grown very used to seeing trailers for her upcoming movie. As such, you have to wonder if the mainstream audience is going to have a bit of a hard time understanding how Justice League fits into this whole deal. For all we know, they may actually start thinking that they’re the same movie. »

Skydance Media CEO And Life Producer David Ellison -- Interview

24 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT

David Ellison first created Skydance Productions for his own 2005 directorial debut When All Else Fails, but Skydance Media really started making waves in 2010 when it teamed up with Paramount Pictures for the Coen Brothers Western True Grit.

It went on to become the highest grossing Western ever and cemented the relationship between Skydance Media with Paramount who teamed-up for World War Z, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and other franchises like Star Trek and 2014’s Terminator: Genisys. (Obviously, some of those movies did better than others.)

For his new science fiction movie Life, based on an idea that Ellison came up with, he’s teamed with Sony Pictures, bringing together a cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson as part of the crew of the International Space Station who must examine a sample of life that’s been brought back from Mars.

Director For Mulan Niki Caro Clears Up Rumors About The Songs In The Film

24 March 2017 7:58 AM, PDT

There is no doubt that Disney has found the formula for creating successful live action remakes of our favorite classic animated films. They have done a fantastic job with stories like Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Part of what is making these films great is how the film makers have made sure to include a lot of favorite moments and songs from the animated films, which for a lot of us bring back great childhood memories that we can now share with our kids. Of course, some of the new material added to the films has also been really helpful at filling in plot holes that were probably over looked the first time around.

Recently in an interview for Moviefone.com Niki Caro, director for the upcoming live action Disney Mulan film, was quoted saying "from what I understand, no songs right now, much to the »

Chris Evans On His Future In McU: ‘I’m Not Going To Sit Here And Say, ‘No More’’

24 March 2017 7:06 AM, PDT

Every so often we get to this point in an actor’s contract where the future seemed uncertain. Following Iron Man 3, it became clear that Marvel Cinematic Universe poster boy Robert Downey Jr was approaching the end of his contract, and there was a lot of speculation that this could be the end. Given that Downey ended up in Captain America: Civil War, and that he’ll be around at least through Avengers 4, it’s clear that renegotiations are always up for discussion.

The same can be said of Chris Evans. This was an actor who initially seemed unsure and uncomfortable in the role of Captain America. While the first film did well enough, it by no means catapulted his character to the forefront of everyone’s favorites list. That wouldn’t come until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s around that time that Evans seemed to »
