Ant-Man’s Michael Pena Tapped To Star In Sony Horror The Bringing

19 August 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Pena, star of End of Watch and Marvel’s Ant-Man, has agreed terms to join The Bringing, a new horror-thriller that’s entered pre-production over at Columbia Pictures and Sony.

Sherlock alum Jeremy Lovering is reportedly circling the director’s chair, chronicling the story of Elisa Lam, a woman who was found dead on the rooftop of the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles under suspicious circumstances. Pena is on board to play the man tasked with unravelling that mystery, and considering that CCTV footage of Elisa’s perplexing death – whose body was uncovered in a water tank – later went viral, we don’t envy him.

Brandon and Phillip Murphy are the brains behind the script, which wound up on Hollywood’s infamous Black List two years ago. It’s now been repackaged and placed firmly on the fast-track at Sony, with the studio now on the hunt for »

Suicide Squad Review

16 August 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As movies based on comics continue to take over the world, those holding the purse strings obviously to capitalize as quickly and completely as possible. This means that we’re going to get some “expansion” titles (like Guardians of the Galaxy) that feature characters that aren’t as well known to the masses.

This leads to a lot of problems when it comes to working through the plot and characters, and Suicide Squad gets almost every decision wrong.

The film builds its own theory at you, while trying to simultaneously exist as that theory, with elusive, government pawn manipulator Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) sharing notes on the criminals she wants to have on hand in case the next Superman isn’t so friendly. This plays out as a 15-minute highlight reel that gives us our characters.

Deadshot (Will Smith) was taken down by Batman, and though he’s a morally »

War on Everyone Trailer Teams Pena and Skarsgard as Corrupt Cops

12 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Beloved filmmaker John Michael McDonagh, who has won fans around the world for his first two films, The Guard and Cavalry, returns to the big screen this year, crossing the pond to tell his first American story in War on Everyone. As of now, this movie doesn't have a Us release date, although it will hit UK theaters on October 7. Today we have the first UK trailer for War On Everyone, which could be the film that dark comedy fans have been waiting all year for.

Award-winning writer-director of The Guard and Cavalry, John Michael McDonagh crosses the globe for his much-anticipated third film, a jet-black action comedy starring Alexander Skarsg&#229rd, Michael Pe&#241a and Theo James. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Terry Monroe (Skarsg&#229rd) and Bob Bola&#241o (Pe&#241a) are two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. »

Michael Peña And Alexander Skarsgard Wage War On Everyone In New Trailer

12 August 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

John Michael McDonagh is a filmmaker that has become synonymous with a very particular breed of black comedy. Across The Guard and Calvary, the Irish writer-director repulsed just as much as he entertained, and has carved out a loyal following in the process. For his latest, though, he’s about to wage War on Everyone.

Enlisting Michael Peña (End of Watch, Ant-Man) and Alexander Skarsgård (The Legend of Tarzan) as two morally questionable brothers in blue, War on Everyone is a thriller that involves blackmailing, extortion, racketeering and just about every other offence that would lead to any other career going up in smokes.

With McDonagh behind the lens – expect razor-sharp dialog throughout – and signs of a cracking chemistry between Peña and Alexander Skarsgård’s gun-toting leads, color us intrigued.

Also starring Creed breakout Tessa Thompson, Malcolm Barrett, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser, Stephanie Sigman and David Wilmot, War On Everyone »

Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)

9 August 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad, 2016.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, Ben Affleck, Karen Fukuhara, Common, Ike Barinholtz and Scott Eastwood.

Synopsis:

A group of highly dangerous super-villains are forced to carry out secret missions for the government.

(Spoilers!)

For over a year now we’ve been drip-fed pictures, information and rumours about DC’s latest (anti)superhero film. The trailers and posters teased and prepared us for a funny, twisted and anarchic film, which is exactly what writer/director David Ayer (End of Watch, Fury) has delivered. However, despite a record-breaking opening in America, the film has received incredibly mixed reviews, much like DC’s last film Batman v Superman. While it does share a couple of the same problems, it has what that film was sorely lacking – an enormous sense of fun. »

Suicide Squad's Margot Robbie talks transforming into Harley Quinn

Suicide Squad's Margot Robbie talks transforming into Harley QuinnSuicide Squad's Margot Robbie talks transforming into Harley QuinnIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine8/8/2016 3:57:00 Pm

Margot Robbie can’t tell you why she’s the perfect choice to play Harley Quinn.

She does know that fans of DC Comics’ demented female antihero were gleeful when she got the role in this month’s comic-book extravaganza Suicide Squad, and that their excitement only grew after the film’s trailers offered snippets of Robbie’s deranged turn as the baseball bat-wielding bad girl in a miniskirt.

“I don’t know, and I wondered that too when I first got the role, sensing how big her fan following is and everyone’s excitement at seeing her portrayed in real life,” says the 25-year-old actor on the line from Budapest, Hungary, where she’s shooting the thriller Terminal.

Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)

6 August 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad, 2016.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, Ben Affleck, Karen Fukuhara, Common, Ike Barinholtz and Scott Eastwood.

Synopsis:

A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.

Suicide Squad is a welcome addition to the superhero genre that quite frankly, should be a better movie than it already is. I don’t know if the movie is supposed to be DC’s answer to Guardians of the Galaxy or Deadpool or an answer to something else entirely, but the resulting film is definitely something of a mixture of the above, alongside its own refreshing elements that honestly do make for one of the more enjoyable movies of its kind – and going one step further, one of the better summer blockbusters of the past few years. »

5 August 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

It.s finally here, one of the most anticipated movies of the year! But is .Suicide Squad. worth all the hype? Check out my movie review of .Suicide Squad..

Here.s the official synopsis from WB:

7 Ways In Which Suicide Squad Is DC’s Guardians Of The Galaxy

5 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In light of the polarizing response to Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. and DC were likely reassured that at least fans were responding positively to early footage of its next DC Extended Universe project, the villainous team-up Suicide Squad. The project – written and directed by End of Watch filmmaker David Ayer – aimed to follow-up the self-serious smackdown between DC Comics’ biggest icons with a lighter, more unconventional comic book film, one which would introduce mainstream audiences to fan-favorite character Harley Quinn and build upon the shared universe that Warner Bros. kicked off with Man of Steel.

However, though Suicide Squad was positioned as a refreshing antidote to the superhero fatigue that some critics have pinpointed, the film ultimately bears a striking resemblance to another project released by DC’s more box office-savvy competitors over at Marvel Studios, namely 2014 hit Guardians of the Galaxy.

Suicide Squad: 2016's most cynical summer movie

5 August 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 8, 2016

With spoilers, Ryan looks at Suicide Squad's cynical edge, and asks: who is its true villain?

Right from Suicide Squad's first trailer, it was evident that Warner DC had a heady stew on the way, and so it's proved. Writer-director David Ayer's movie is a comic book movie laced with elements from war and gangster pictures, topped off with a bit of fantasy and science fiction and spiked with a dash of horror.

You hardly need reminding that the reaction from reviewers hasn't been kind, to say the least, though it's arguable that all but the film's harshest critics would agree that it isn't without merit. As his superb screenplay for Training Day or his 2012 cop movie End Of Watch showed, Ayer's far from a hack, even if his films can sometimes fall on the wrong side of brutal and chaotic - such as »

Kevin Smith Praises ‘Suicide Squad’ Director David Ayer: ‘I Think He Made Magic’

5 August 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kevin Smith has come to the defense of “Suicide Squad” and director David Ayer after the bulk of reviews for the highly-anticipated DC Comics movie have been overwhelmingly bad. Smith posted a photo of himself and Ayer on Instagram, saying how much he enjoyed Ayer’s previous films “End of Watch” and “Fury.” “When I heard he was shepherding a cinematic ‘Suicide Squad,’ my already-high interests in a DC Comics movie shot over the top: What would a gritty guy like Dave do with the likes of Deadshot & Harley Quinn?

Warner Brothers hopes to right their DC ship with “Suicide Squad”

4 August 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There’s an awful lot riding on Suicide Squad for Warner Brothers and their DC cinematic universe. They really need not just a financial hit, but a cultural one too, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was considered a downgrade from Man of Steel. Besides this, only Wonder Woman has a chance to right the ship before Justice League basically makes or breaks their superhero efforts. This week, they finally release Suicide Squad out into the world, riding a wave of tremendous advertising for the film. I have no doubt that it’s going to be a hit, but I’m sadly here to report that it’s not going to change the quality conversation. This movie is terrible, through and through. The film is, in some ways, a sequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in that it takes place after the events of that flick. Government »

It's official: 'Suicide Squad' is as poorly-reviewed as 'Batman v Superman'

4 August 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, our own David Eckstein reported on a ludicrous petition by an angry DC movie fan to have Rotten Tomatoes shut down over the poor critical average for Suicide Squad, which then sat at an awful 33% "Rotten" average. Unfortunately for them, reviews have only gotten worse from there. Had it held steady at 33%, Suicide Squad would have finished out its tussle with critics a full 6 percentage points higher than March's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which rated a dismal 27% on the review aggregator. Alas; thanks to further negative reviews for the Warner Bros./DC blockbuster over the last 24 hours, the David Ayer-directed spectacle has now dropped an alarming 5 points to 28% "Rotten." If you had asked me earlier in the summer whether Suicide Squad would be as poorly-received critically as Batman v Superman, my answer would have been an almost unequivocal "no." The trailers for the film were far »

Review: Ayer's 'Suicide Squad' Squanders an Impressive DC Ensemble

3 August 2016 6:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Written and directed by David Ayer (of Fury, End of Watch, Street Kings, and Harsh Times previously), Suicide Squad sounds like it should be a very fun movie. A secret government agency recruits incarcerated super-villains (from DC Comics lore) to carry out high-risk black ops missions in exchange for reduced sentences? It's The Dirty Dozen with Harley Quinn and the Joker and a few other bad guys, what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, everything. While the premise is intriguing, the movie is unfortunately an incoherent, aggressively dull mess that squanders an impressive ensemble cast of characters. Based on the DC series by John Ostrander, Suicide Squad begins with Amanda Waller, a ruthless Us intelligence officer played by Viola Davis, hand-picking bad guys from the notorious Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary, a facility designed to hold the "worst of the worst." Her team, Task Force X, includes Deadshot (Will Smith »

Suicide Squad review

3 August 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Thursday, August 4, 2016 - 05:29

Marching to the rattle of machine gun fire and an ever-present mixtape of 60s and 70s rock, along comes writer-director David Ayer’s starry Suicide Squad to see out the summer season. Like a comic book-tinted Dirty Dozen, it introduces a band of criminals and misfits pressed into service as heroes by Amanda Waller (a glowering Viola Davis) - a government operative well versed in “getting people to act against their own self-interest.”

There are dark forces at work in Midway City, and so it’s up to sharp-shooting assassin Deadshot (Will Smith), crazed ex-psychiatrist Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and a bunch of other “psychotics and freaks” to bring order out of chaos. The only trouble is, neither Deadshot nor the rest of his motley crew - which also counts Aussie thief Boomerang (Jai Courtney) man-eating monster Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and »

The Preview Reel: Suicide Squad Likely Kills

3 August 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to another “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. The summer movie season is typically full of superhero flicks, and this week brings the last one of the season. After Captain America: Civil War and X-Men: Apocolypse, the latest DC offering, Suicide Squad, finally hits the screen. Will it live up to the hype or be another DC disappointment? There’s also Kevin Spacey as a cat in Nine Lives, which I guess we have to talk about too.

  Suicide Squad

What we are excited about:

This is one of the most intriguing releases of the summer, mainly because it has a lot going for it. The A-list cast is certainly the main draw here with the likes of Will Smith, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, and Margot Robbie all having major roles. The trailers make it seem like they have all bought into this weird, »
