Promotional Posters For Suicide Squad Tease New Looks At Harley Quinn

44 minutes ago

See Full Gallery Here

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn means business in a pair of new promotional posters for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Wielding a baseball bat and a devil-may-care attitude, the psychiatrist formerly known as Harleen Frances Quinzel is shaping up to be true scene-stealer in Ayer’s anti-hero feature, and today’s admittedly low-res images only drive that point home.

More News From The Web

Headlining a motley crew of the “worst heroes ever,” Robbie’s unhinged character will naturally play a pivotal role in Suicide Squad – she is the muse to the Clown Prince of Crime, after all – with earlier screenshots teasing the actress in normal guise as the aforementioned Harleen Qunizel. Couple this with the baptism shot from the film’s most recent trailer, which appears to be situated in Ace Chemicals, and you have all the makings of a true origin story for what »

Titanfall 2 Will Feature Single-Player Campaign After All

1 hour ago

It is “looking fantastic,” set for a multi-platform release and now, developer Respawn has confirmed that Titanfall 2 will include a single-player campaign, a feature that was totally absent from the original 2014 release.

That’s according to the sequel’s Lead Writer Jesse Stern, who spoke about the “vision of grand global colonial warfare” that will underpin Titanfall 2 during an interview with Forbes. Firstly, Stern noted that the multiplayer component of the follow-up will be a step up from its predecessor, before acknowledging that the lack of a single-player story was perhaps one of the shortcomings of Titanfall two years ago.

“The multi-player game will be even better than it was the first time around. The first game was an Xbox exclusive (initially). This one is going to be widely available, I believe on all platforms. One of the shortcomings of the first game was we just did not have the »

Amanda Seyfried To Star Opposite Ed Helms For New Comedy The Clapper

1 hour ago

Writer-director Dito Montiel (Man Down) is set to take the reins of his own passion project The Clapper, Deadline reports that Montiel has already secured his two leading cast members in Ed Helms and Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried.

Adapted from Montiel’s own novel of the same name, The Clapper is pitched as an offbeat comedy that chronicles the life of a professional clapper, who makes a living sitting on in infomercials and applauding on cue. A drab and dreary profession, it’s understood that Ed Helms will take point in the lead role as Eddie Krumble, who unwittingly becomes the center of attention while in the audience for a Jay Leno talk show. Thrusting him into the limelight for 15 minutes of fame, Helms’ character is soon left battling unwanted attention that threatens both his employment and flailing love life.

As for Seyfried, the actress has reportedly been cast for the role of Judy, »

This New Grum Track Will Get “Under Your Skin”

1 hour ago

Since being signed to Anjunabeats, Scottish progressive house DJ/producer Grum has been blessed with an ever-growing audience – and his latest release follows the upward trend. On the most recent edition of their radio show, Above & Beyond have given “Under Your Skin” the honor of Group Therapy Record of the Week, exposing it to the program’s worldwide listener base.

As with Grum’s other releases, the introspective soundscape that is “Under Your Skin” matches the more classical definition of progressive house – one that more closely compares to what artists like Eric Prydz put out than the releases of mainstagers like Hardwell and Martin Garrix. Vocal contributions by Rothchild compliment the groove of the track exquisitely, coloring its driving melody with a somber melancholy that suits it well.

It’s almost been half a year since Grum‘s previous release, but with any luck 2016 will see more tracks from the celebrated talent. »

Keanu Green Band Trailer Features Shootouts, Car Chases And A Cute Little Kitten

1 hour ago

It was late last month when Warner Bros., New Line and Comedy Central peeled back the curtain on the first trailer for Keanu – part John Wick homage, part internet fever dream – and today we arrive at the new green band trailer.

Filtering out much of the expletives, the snippet retains the same running order as the original trailer, reminding us all that Peter Atencio’s comedy feature is shaping up to be one of the earlier surprises of the year. Reuniting beloved duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, Keanu finds the latter’s character Rell down the dumps and coming to terms with an emotional breakup.

But what better way to bounce back from a disheartening event than adopting a cute and seemingly stray kitten? That’s exactly what Rell does when he crosses paths with the titular feline, only for it to be cruelly kidnapped a few days later. »

Crime Caper Mr. Cranky Casts Brendan Gleeson For Title Role

2 hours ago

Irish actor Brendan Gleeson has boarded Jonathan Teplitzky’s crime caper Mr. Cranky, according to Screen Daily.

Assuming the title role of Kevin Darcy, a temperamental crime-boss-cum-debt-collector, Gleeson’s addition is the first piece of casting to come out of the nascent project, which recently earned the backing of Metro International. Teplitzky (The Railway Man) will be working from Chris Nyst’s script, with the director eyeing a September shoot Down Under – Melbourne, to be specific.

Having arguably stole the show across both In Bruges and The Guard, Brendan Gleeson is perhaps the perfect fit to play a cantankerous mob boss, and he’ll be causing nine kinds of headaches in Mr. Cranky by threatening those people who can’t pay their debits. A standard mob boss, then; though things take a turn for the worse when Darcy’s rampant temper gets the best of him, sparks a gang war, »

Hardwell Makes Cameo In Video For Armin Van Buuren’s “Heading Up High”

2 hours ago

International trance superstar Armin Van Buuren has allowed the songs from last year’s Embrace several months to emotionally connect with his audiences, and at long last he’s revealed the official music video for one of the album’s bolder departures. In an exclusive premiere with MTV Music, the Armada label head has released the video for his Kensington collaboration, “Heading Up High” – which features an unexpected cameo from fellow Dutchman and progressive house icon Hardwell.

The video depicts inmates of an island-bound prison attempting to escape through a hole at the top of its dome-shaped structure by climbing a conveniently placed rope while Van Buuren and the members of Kensington perform “Heading Up High” on a just as conveniently placed stage. What inmates aren’t directly participating in the jailbreak – including one played by Hardwell – fist pump in unison to the performance from the periphery of the room. »

Square Enix Details Hitman Beta Content And Start Time, File Size Weighs In At 4.7Gb

2 hours ago

Square Enix and developer Io Interactive have all hands at the pump in preparation of the imminent beta test for Hitman. Set to go live for PlayStation 4 users first on February 12, today brings forth a new trailer for the vertical slice, along with a detailed breakdown of the content therein.

Weighing in at 4.7Gb in size – how very apropos – the beta will expand to PC soon thereafter (February 19) though there are no plans to host an early test on Xbox One.

Hosting a Faq in anticipation of the beta’s arrival, Square cautioned that the only way to access said test is by pre-ordering a digital version of the stealth title either on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Those who pre-ordered physical copies of Hitman aren’t eligible.

Here’s an extract from the Faq section. YouTubers and content creators will be pleased to note that you will be able to »

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Reteam With The Revenant Scribe For Paramount’s Conquest

3 hours ago

Buoyed by the success of The Revenant, both in financial and critical circles, Paramount has snapped up the rights for Conquest, a new project that will reunite Leonardo DiCaprio with screenwriter Mark L. Smith.

Smith co-wrote The Revenant alongside director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and given that the raw tour-de-force is one of the early frontrunners going into this year’s Academy Awards, it’s clear that Paramount is keen to reassemble its pool of talent. First reported by Deadline, it’s understood that the studio fended off several other bidders in its process of securing Conquest, though beyond that there’s little-to-no information regarding plot or setting.

Conquest is by no means the only DiCaprio-fronted project populating Paramount’s slate, with the fast-tracked (and indeed long-in-development) The Devil In The White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America poised to reunite the Oscar-nominated actor with his good-luck charm, »

Unravel Review

3 hours ago

Video games continue to prove themselves as an art form with every passing day, week and month. This is because more and more developers are showing a lack of fear in approaching sensitive subject matter, including love, loss and the human condition. A perfect example of this is That Dragon, Cancer, the recently released, heavy hitting tearjerker, which resulted from a close family’s terribly unfortunate loss. Unravel — the new title from Coldwood and EA — also fits into this category, as it’s more than just a game.

Unravel begins in the quiet and lonely kitchen of a sad-looking old lady. A knitter out of hobby and perhaps necessity, too, she grabs her basket of yarn and heads up to bed, failing to notice that a large spool of the red fibre has fallen out and tumbled back towards the kitchen’s expanse. The lady never returns for it, and »

Assassin’s Creed Star Michael Fassbender Compares Upcoming Video Game Film To The Matrix

3 hours ago

Justin Kurzel, Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender, fresh off creating one of the finest Shakespearian films in recent memory with Macbeth, will reunite later this year to tackle Ubisoft’s historical epic Assassin’s Creed.

A science fiction franchise at its core, the video game mega-franchise centers around players unlocking the DNA memories of their ancestors, effectively gaining the ability to relive the events of yesteryear. It’s a creative well that has allowed the Assassin’s Creed series to hop between the American Revolution and Ancient Italy, and Fassbender underlined these sci-fi tendencies during a recent interview with Empire.

In fact, the one film that the actor compared Assassin’s Creed to was The Matrix, and while we don’t expect Justin Kurzel’s adaptation to utilize bullet time or jet-black trench coats anytime soon, Fassbender touched base on how the concept elevates the film from your standard fantasy fare. »

Ballers Star Arielle Kebbel Enlists For Fifty Shades Freed

3 hours ago

If the Fifty Shades franchise was placed on a temporary hiatus in 2015 – backroom drama likely didn’t help matters – then Universal is ready to fire up production once again with plans to shoot both Fifty Shades Darker and its sequel Fifty Shades Freed back-to-back.

What that means is the studio’s erotic adaptation is fast becoming a hive of activity, now that Kim Basinger and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actress Bella Heathcote have been enlisted for next year’s Darker. But make no mistake, Universal is playing the long game with its lucrative franchise, as evidenced by today’s casting of Arielle Kebbel in Fifty Shades Freed.

Best known for her role opposite Dwayne Johnson in HBO’s Ballers, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Kebbel has joined the threequel as Gia Matteo, a beautiful architect and, surprise, former flame to Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey. Drawing jealously from »

Mike Hawkins Joins Julian Jordan In Leaving Spinnin’ Records

4 hours ago

Seriously, what’s going on at Spinnin’ Records lately? It was only a matter of hours ago that Julian Jordan announced his split from the Dutch record label, and Danish DJ/producer and Megaton label head Mike Hawkins has revealed that he will also end his partnership with them to pursue an alternative distribution strategy.

Hawkins had already alluded to his “new journey” on social media, then subsequently took to Facebook to issue the following Statement:

Continuing on what I announced last week, I would like to inform fans, followers, friends and other supporters that Spinnin’ Records and I have mutually agreed to end our deal.

Following two very exciting and fruitful years for me it has been a key stone for my personal aspirations that I pursue wider and different creative paths in my music.

I have worked hard on several new records the past half year, and both »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blasts Past $2 Billion Mark At Global Box Office

4 hours ago

This weekend past, Star Wars: The Force Awakens made box office history. Not that that should come as much of a surprise – J.J. Abrams’ franchise revival has been breaking through records left, right and center. Although Disney and Lucasfilm announced that the sci-fi sequel has now officially crossed the $2 billion mile marker at the international box office.

It is only the third motion picture to do so, providing the figures aren’t adjusted for inflation, arriving behind Titanic ($2.18 billion) and the seemingly insurmountable box office king, Avatar ($2.78 billion).

More News From The Web

How and ever, there’s every chance that The Force Awakens will retain its steady stream of income thanks to the recent launch in China. Plus, this is a film that hasn’t even been out in the wild for two months at this point.

Regardless of how things shake out at the tip-top of the box office standings, »

Nina Forever Review

4 hours ago

This review originally ran as part of our coverage of SXSW 2015. It is being reposted as the film opens theatrically this Friday.

In the realm of cockblocks, there’s nothing more intrusive than a vengeful ex-girlfriend who wants to sabotage every future relationship you attempt without her.

Wait, let me rephrase that. In the Realistic realm of cockblocks, that’d be the absolute worst – but Nina Forever doesn’t care to explore our human world. No, according to the Blaine brothers, the absolute Worst cockblock known to man comes in the form of your dead ex-girlfriend who only appears during passionate lovemaking sessions with other woman. This is the lustful tale of Nina Forever, a morbid fable about letting go and moving on – even if the past comes back from the grave.

Holly (Abigail Hardingham) is in love with Rob (Cian Barry), and Rob is in love with Holly. This all seems healthy and promising, »

10 Formerly Great Actors That Have Completely Lost Their Way

4 hours ago

There’s little else more tragic than watching a great actor’s career go to the dogs. It’s no surprise when lesser performers fall by the wayside, the movies moving on as they fail to prove they belong (*cough* Orlando Bloom *cough*). But it doesn’t just happen to the substandard and the shoddy – it happens to the best of them as well.

In cinemas right now is a little film called Dirty Grandpa, a dirty old man bawdy sex comedy starring Zac Efron and none other than double Oscar-winning legend Robert De Niro. The film’s been trashed so far, called by some critics a low point for the actor. What those critics are failing to realize, however, is that Bobby De Niro seemingly gave up years ago.

He’s not the only one, either. Here, then, are ten other great actors that, far from living up to »

Black Panther Writer Joe Robert Cole Talks Marvel, Movies And Diversity

4 hours ago

Filmmaker Joe Robert Cole is about to take on the biggest project of his career to date, with the upcoming Marvel tent-pole movie, Black Panther. Hired to write the first solo movie of the first black superhero of mainstream American comics, the pressure is undoubtedly on for the young scribe. He could not be better placed for the job, however, having written, directed and edited his own film – Amber Lake – in 2011, and then having participated in Marvel’s two-year in-house writing program. The combination of a broad experience behind the camera, along with time spent in Marvel-specific writing rooms means that his in-progress script for Black Panther is something to be very excited about indeed.

The story he will be taking on is that of T’Challa, also known as Black Panther – warrior king of the technologically advanced fictional African nation of Wakanda. Having teased his appearance with mention of »

Julian Jordan Ends Business Relationship With Spinnin’ Records

5 hours ago

Update: Within an hour of Jordan’s announcement, Danish DJ/producer Mike Hawkins has announced that he will also end his partnership with Spinnin’ Records.

One of Spinnin’ Records’ most promising recent talents, Julian Jordan, has announced that he will discontinue his business relationship with the Dutch record label. In a turn of events that hints vaguely at progressive house icon Martin Garrix’s split with the same imprint, the Amsterdam-based talent has opted to follow a course that would afford him more creative liberties.

Jordan was signed to Spinnin’ in 2012 with the release of “Rock Steady” at the tender young age of 16 – the same age at which Garrix had been signed. In an official statement, Jordan made the following comments on the split:

The last few months we’ve been trying to sign a new agreement with Spinnin’ Records but unfortunately we couldn’t agree on a new deal. »

Watch Gotham Stories: Chapter 2 – “Mr. Freeze Targets Penguin”

5 hours ago

Fox has just released yet another exciting chapter of Gotham Stories, which bears a rather straightforward title in “Mr. Freeze Targets Penguin.” As you have no doubt gathered, it delivers what it promises.

Featuring the voice talents of Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle/Cat), Nathan Darrow (Victor Fries), Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) and Donal Logue (Harvey Bullock), this episode is the second of five motion comics that intends to bridge the gap between the first half of Season Two, “Rise of the Villains,” and the second half, “Wrath of the Villains.”

In this particular episode, which picks up right where last week’s left off, Mr. Freeze (whom you can get a new look at here) wastes absolutely no time making his frosty, lethal presence known. And while we may not know what caused his vendetta against Penguin, Freeze gives the impression that someone may have hired him. »

Making The Division Look Much Better On PC Over Consoles Would Be “Unfair”, Says Ubisoft

5 hours ago

Ubisoft are reluctant to make the PC version of The Division look considerably better than the game’s console versions due to the discrepancies being “unfair”, said the company.

In a video posted by Team Epiphany, a developer on The Division stated that, “one good thing about The Division is we’ve always considered the PC as a separate platform. I’ve worked on projects before that the PC version’s a port from a console so it carries that limitation over, but we’ve always been in the mind that we’ll have a dedicated PC build, so it hasn’t really held it back too much.”

However, those comments were immediately followed by ones that will undoubtedly irritate PC gamers across the land. It’s no secret that PC ports of games in the past have failed to replicate the high quality of their console alternatives (Batman: Arkham »
