Justice League: breaking down the new trailer

25 March 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Mar 27, 2017

There's so much DC superhero stuff hidden in the new Justice League movie trailer that we broke it all down for you.

Well, it sure took them long enough, didn't it? We've been waiting since last July for an 'official' trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League movie. At San Diego Comic Con 2016, Warner Bros. unveiled a reel of footage, but it wasn't what they were officially calling a trailer. But this one is something different, and it reveals lots more about what's actually happening in the movie than that initial footage.

So the first thing you should do before I start overanalyzing every piece of this thing, is you should watch the trailer yourself if you haven't seen it yet.

Here it is...

The biggest thing to note here is that they're still aggressively pushing a very different tone (if not look) from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. »

"The Dark Knight" Wins The Day

25 March 2017 7:11 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Director Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" (2008) is considered by many to be among the best comic book films to have been released in recent times and along with the rest of the "Batman" movie series, enjoys a massive cult following from fans of all ages who flock to comic fan sites to stay up to date:

The fact "The Dark Knight" was released almost 10 years ago has done nothing to limit the movie's popularity, consistently ranking in top ten Best Movie Lists from around the world. Starring actor Heath Ledger in the role of the super-villain antagonist 'The Joker' and Christian Bale as 'Bruce Wayne'/'Batman', it was only a matter of time before new platforms were developed to breathe fresh life into "The Dark Knight" story.

Marc Alan Fishman: What DC Could Learn from Logan

25 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Having finally caught and absorbed James Mangold’s Logan, the finale to the Og X-films, I find myself hoping that the execs behind the soon-to-be-released Wonder Woman and Justice League movies were taking notes. A caveat: I’m going to attempt to keep my lens wide this week. While I don’t believe I’ll be spoiling anything more than people on your Facebook feed have blathered about, be nonetheless forewarned.

Before I get into my listicle (they’re what make articles click-baity, don’t-cha-know), let me quickly pontificate. Logan was one of the most powerful superhero films I’ve ever seen. Perhaps second only to The Dark Knight. It was a straight-forward small-scale road picture that kept a handle on a single-thread story, presented as an homage to the westerns it evoked throughout the picture. In spite of a heavy-handed two-hour run-time, the film itself moves at a steady pace. »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 TV Trailer Debuts as Tickets Go on Sale

24 March 2017 7:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bust out your wallets, Marvel fans, because tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are officially on sale. With the movie set to hit theaters in a little over a month, Marvel Studios has decided to let eager fans get a head start as they have opened up advanced ticket sales for the highly-anticipated sequel around the world. They did so by releasing a brand new, extended TV spot for the movie that doesn't feature a ton of new footage, but definitely does the trick.

Marvel Entertainment released the video online today in order to declare that tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are up for grabs. The new spot features quite a bit of footage we have already seen. Some from the Super Bowl spot, some from the most recent trailer and a couple of new shots. But none of those new shots are anything to write home about. »

'Life' Star Ariyon Bakare on Wanting to Be America’s "Elegant Black British Guy"

24 March 2017 1:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The U.K. could soon lose another one of its acting talents to the lures of the U.S.

Ariyon Bakare, after a career spanning two decades on British TV in shows such as Doctors, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and Dancing on the Edge, alongside some acclaimed stage performances, has Hollywood in his sights.

While the Londoner has already notched up a number of smaller roles in some major blockbusters — most notably The Dark Knight and Rogue One (playing Blue Squadron pilot Blue Four, no less) — in Daniel Espinosa’s sci-fi thriller Life, released by Sony on Friday, he’s found »

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In April, Including ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ and ‘Casting JonBenet’

22 March 2017 3:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The hits keep on coming from your friendly neighborhood streaming giant, Netflix, which announced a fresh round of titles hitting the airwaves next month. Ranging from never-before-streamed comedy specials to historical classics to critically acclaimed kids’ films, these titles are sure to keep you cooped up and entertained throughout mud season. Enjoy.

1. “Richard Pryor: Live & Smokin'” (available April 1)

The first of only four specials ever filmed by the legendary comedian, this 45-minute stand-up set from 1978 was released on VHS in 1985 and has never been available to stream before (legally). Almost universally revered by comedians of all stripes, this special has stayed relatively obscure due to an uneven performance from Pryor. Still, you can learn from a genius even on a bad day.

2. “Across the Universe” (available April 1)

Even Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess anchor this visually enchanting Beatles movie musical from visionary Broadway director and choreographer Julie Taymor (“Titus »

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Sets Pre-Summer Record for a Tuesday

22 March 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s smash hit “Beauty and the Beast” is showing no signs of slowing down, setting a pre-summer record gross for a film playing on a Tuesday.

The live-action remake earned $17.9 million. That’s far above the previous North American record holder, “Furious 7,” at $13.3 million and last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” at $12.1 million. The number also topped the first Tuesdays of three other Disney blockbusters: “The Avengers,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and “Captain America: Civil War. ”

22 March 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While some novices may not realize what is about to hit Netflix this summer, fans do, and they have been waiting for the American Death Note adaptation for quite some time. Originally envisioned as a big screen reboot of the popular Japanese franchise, the movie eventually wound up at Netflix. And now, it is set to be one of their biggest original summer movie releases ever. Today, we have a first look at this thriller.

'We suggest you obey the rules'. That's the warning issued at the forefront of this spooky tale. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the »

Could Green Lantern Corps be heading for a 2018 release with David Goyer at the helm?

20 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Warner Bros. could very well be stepping up the pace with the DC universe in a bid to try and catch-up with Marvel’s dominance of the big screen with a possible fast-tracking of Green Lantern Corps to be released next year alongside James Wan’s Aquaman.

With currently five DC projects under their wing for their next potential release, Green Lantern Corps is looking to pip the rest to the post with screenwriter David Goyer, currently tipped to take the helm on Suicide Squad 2, taking up its director’s chair according to The Tracking Board.

Jeff Sneider told Meet The Movie Press

“I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumours last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. »

Joe Manganiello Sounds Less Certain About Playing Deathstroke in ‘The Batman’ Now

Development of the first standalone Batman movie featuring Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight has been somewhat difficult recently.

Joe Manganiello unsure if he’ll get to play Deathstroke in The Batman

19 March 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. had decided to push back production on The Batman to 2018, owing to director Matt Reeves’ ongoing commitments to this summer’s War for the Planet of the Apes.

Coinciding with the news was a rumour that the screenplay for the Dark Knight solo movie would be undergoing a complete page-one rewrite, and now Joe Manganiello has been chatting to Pittsburgh Today Live, where he seemed uncertain about whether he’ll get to portray Deathstroke, stating “maybe, we’ll see” when asked about his participation in the movie.

Manganiello has been very active over the past few months on social media showing his training and research for the role, so this U-turn definitely seems to support the rumour that the project is receiving a major overhaul.

Hans Zimmer Misses Bale's Batman, Isn't Happy with Affleck

17 March 2017 4:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans were surprised when composer Hans Zimmer announced last year that he has retired from the superhero movie genre, after composing the score for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with Junkie Xl. The composer brought in Junkie Xl to compose the Batman theme, since he didn't want to betray the work he did with director Christopher Nolan in his blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy, which starred Christian Bale as Batman. In a new interview, Hans Zimmer revealed just how much he misses Christian Bale as Batman, and how he's definitely not a fan of Ben Affleck's rendition of Batman.

Inverse caught up with the composer, who was promoting his new online MasterClass, where he teaches aspiring musicians how to compose film scores. When the talk eventually shifted towards Hans Zimmer's superhero retirement, the musician revealed that he just couldn't work in the genre anymore, after the 12 years »

Hans Zimmer Breaks Down The Difference Between His Two Bats

17 March 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Love him or hate him, Hans Zimmer has quite the presence in the world of cinema. If you're here, reading this, then you've definitely heard his music, whether it be that from Pirates of the Caribbean, Sherlock Holmes, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and even The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And that's just a sampling of his work! Whew!

Though he's not the only composer to score the music for two different Batman actors -- Elliot Goldenthal wrote the music for Batman Forever starring Val Kilmer and Batman & Robin with George Clooney -- he is the only one to write two completely different scores for separate Batman Universes. Based on the quality of Batman Forever and its sequel, I'm assuming Goldenthal didn't really give character motivation much thought when writing his Batman theme, but Zimmer took it very seriously. Now that he's done with superhero themes forever (or for now. »
