‘Suicide Squad’ Cameo Leaks, Jared Leto Talks Heath Ledger, Condom Controversy Explained, And Much More

2 hours ago

Much like “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” the story around “Suicide Squad” is becoming much more interesting than the film itself.

First Look: Tyler Hoechlin As Superman In ‘Supergirl’

Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson & Kristen Wiig Put Their Heads Together In New Trailer For ‘Masterminds’

21 hours ago
