I cannot recall a film that left me with such a sour taste in my mouth by its end. Does the movie deliberately defy itself with obnoxious intent? I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Firth
I’m “biast” (con): the trailer did not inspire hope
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
This is not an gentlemanly movie.
Now, most movies are not very gentlemanly, and this isn’t necessarily a problem — except, perhaps, to those of us who lament the passing of true gentlemanliness as a thing a dude might aspire to. But it’s a honking huge problem forKingsman: The Secret Service. Because this movie makes such a big deal about how gentlemanliness is a thing a dude must exude, certainly if he wants to become a member of the titular elite society of gentleman spies and »

Jason Momoa was announced last year as playing Aquaman in the DC Cinematic Universe, and while his first appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still over a year a way, fans are keen to get any little bit of information they can about the film.
During a panel at the Sundance Film Festival, Momoa has offered up some new details, responding to a question from a fan about what we can expected by stating: “Well, things are going to be a little different. When I first went in I met with Zack [Snyder] and his idea is pretty amazing. When I went in, he told me … my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn’t normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for … definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know… I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got »

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.
“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

With his latest film, The End of the Tour, premiering at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, Variety caught up with Jesse Eisenberg about the film, but also dropped in a few questions about another small indie film he has coming out next year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While Eisenberg didn’t divulge too much, particularly about his hairstyle for the film, the actor did suggest that he would be more than happy to reprise the role in any future DC film, let alone a Batman v Superman sequel.
“I would love to,” says Eisenberg. “It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play.”
Rumours are abound that Luthor is set to appear in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, whether in a cameo or as the film’s big bad. But while he has obvious excitement about the role and the forthcoming film, »

Oooh, it’s just Ben Affleck with a ‘six pack’ (or ‘beer gut’) as Batman in the latest photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Speaking of that epic team-up film, we also have the thoughts of its fight choreographer (he reckons it’s the best movie ever) And George Lucas, the Star Wars daddio, finally gives his thoughts on Jj Abrams’ The Force Awakens.

We still have nearly a year and a half until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters, but it's clear that this superhero adventure is just the start of the massive DC Comics movie universe. Warner Bros. and DC announced their slate of upcoming releases back in October, which includes Suicide Squad, a two-part Justice League movie and stand-alone adventures for Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Shazam!, Cyborg and Green Lantern. Variety recently caught up with Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice villain Lex Luthor, and asked if he would be willing to reprise his role in a Superman sequel. Here's what he had to say below.
"I would love to. It's a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play."
Those of you who frequent our website often will notice in posts about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Scoot McNairy is noted as starring in the movie in a “as-yet-unrevealed roles”. During an interview with USA Today, McNairy was grilled about the movie, but wasn’t letting up any information.
“Man, I would love to spend hours with you about it but I don’t know if you’d see me in another movie if I did,” the actor joked before calling director Zack Snyder “an incredible filmmaker and an incredible visionary”.
“Playing in that world with comic books you’ve been reading since you were a kid, being someone in that world, it’s awesome,” he added.
Rumours about McNairy’s character have spread from Jimmy Olsen, »

Paramount Pictures has pushed its spy comedy Grimsby from its originally-slated July 31, 2015 release date to February 26, 2016. The spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen was set to go up against Warner Bros. Point Break remake, Focus Features' Selfless and The Weinstein Company's Southpaw on July 31, 2015. Now it will face Paramount's Ben-Hur remake next winter.
Grimsby centers on a British secret agent (Mark Strong) who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown with his dim-witted soccer hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). Penélope Cruz also stars as a benevolent corporate leader who is hiding a secret. Annabelle Wallis, Rebel Wilson, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas and Isla Fisher round out the supporting cast.
A new image of a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice crew member shirt has been making waves online today, and for good reason.
Not only does it offer up a great illustrated look at an armored Batman facing off with Henry Cavill’s Superman in what’s very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but it uses a quote from that seminal comic as well: “…Remind them that giants walk the Earth.”
Interestingly, the quote is actually only part of what Miller originally wrote: “We must not remind them that giants walk the Earth.” If the actual quote is in Batman V Superman at all, perhaps Snyder is paraphrasing or reworking it. Or maybe it’s just included here because it looks badass on the T-shirt.

With rumours floating around the Internet that the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be hitting the world next month (attached to Jupiter Ascending), the wait to see The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel square off is almost upon us. But how will the fight go down?
“Warner Bros., they are very strict, so I can’t say much, but it’s no surprise if I say Batman and Superman come face-to-face in the movie,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice choreographer Guillermo Grispo told Los Andes Diario (translated by Batman News). “It’s one of the most important sequences and I was actively involved in the design of the fight: the exchange of punches and the physical movement were put together with my partner Ryan Watson.”
“There’s a thought that Batman has no chance, that [Superman] will squash him like a bug,” he continues. »

Ever since Jesse Eisenberg was first cast as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there has been a lingering question regarding whether or not the actor would sport the legendary villain's classic chrome dome look. Unfortunately, the film has also worked hard to keep that little item a mystery, as The Social Network star's head was constantly covered while he was outside filming scenes for the blockbuster. Funny enough, however, it now seems that the great question has been answered thanks to a new look at Eisenberg's character in the upcoming Now You See Me 2. The first look image at Now You See Me 2 has come to us courtesy of director Jon Chu's Instagram feed, and if you look at Jesse Eisenberg's head, you'll notice that he isn't exactly sporting a lot of hair, suggesting that he may now be growing it back »
The folks at Joblo have posted an alleged new promotional image for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from the Hong Kong Licensing Show, which features the previously seen character shots of Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, along with a new look at Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight…

Next year, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will bring together its most iconic superhero characters together on the big screen for the very first time with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set to introduce the characters of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg to the world created by Zack Snyder in 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel.
During the BAFTA Tea Party, Mail Online caught up with Superman himself Henry Cavill, asking the British star what fans can expect from the DC ensemble: “It’s Zack Snyder, so it’s going to be a visual spectacle. And it’s cinematic history. We’re doing Batman, we’re doing Superman, and it’s all happening at the same time. So fingers crossed it turns out to be as exciting as I think it is.”
Cavill was also asked if he had any advice for Ben Affleck »

After a surprise turnover at the box office back in 2013, the Four Horsemen are set to return for another bout of might and magic with the release of Now You See Me: The Second Act, and director Jon. M Chu recently showcased our very first look at the ensemble cast for the upcoming sequel.
With Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and Lizzy Caplan — in lieu of Isla Fisher — on board as the aforementioned tricksters, the film will also herald the return of Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine, who will be joined by newcomer Daniel Radcliffe who is set to play his son, Walter Tressler. As for story, The Second Act will pick up around one year after the events of the original film, pitting the Horsemen against a new threat as they make a move to pull of their “most dangerous heist yet.”
Not exactly reinventing the wheel, mind you. »
