Justice League's Opening Scene Was Director By Joss Whedon and it Was Originally Supposed to Be More Comedic

I know a lot of fans are wondering what scenes from Justice League were written and directed by Joss Whedon. We know all the Superman scenes where we see him with the CGI upper lip were done by Whedon. Now we know that the opening scene involving Batman capturing a burglar to lure out a Parademon was Whedon's doing as well.

The big reveal comes from actor Holt McCallany, who played the burglar. He explains in an interview with Comic Book that the opening scene was originally supposed to be more comedic. In fact, Whedon originally shot the scene they way he intended it to play out, but then Warner Bros. stepped in and had him change it up. That's kind of weird because the whole reason the studio wanted Joss Whedon on board was to lighten things up! Then he does that and they tell him to make it darker again.

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’: Watch The New Ronettes-Inspired ‘Maybe She’s Not Such a Heinous Bitch After All’ Video — Exclusive
Watch the “Maybe She’s Not Such a Heinous Bitch After All” on mute, and it looks like one of the happiest things “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” has ever done. But as with the rest of the musical sequences on the show, there’s always more behind what Rebecca Bunch tells herself.

There’s Rebecca (Rachel Bloom), just off one of the lowest points in her life, finally being Ok with moving back home and living with her mom Naomi (Tovah Feldshuh). As she starts to accept Naomi’s sudden change in attitude, complete with homemade milkshakes and TV-watching cuddle sessions, her thoughts take the form of a Ronettes-style, Wall of Sound tribute. Singing the song takes her from Naomi’s living room, straight through to a black-and-white TV performance, with a pair of backup singers for good measure.

IndieWire was on set for the filming of “Maybe She’s Not Such

Red Dwarf cast and co-creator interview: series Xii, the future

Rob Leane Oct 18, 2017

We interview Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Robert Llewellyn, Danny John-Jules and Doug Naylor about Red Dwarf Xii and more...

It’s a good time to be a Red Dwarf fan. After years off our screens, and talk of a movie that ultimately came to naught, the show made its return with Back To Earth in 2009. UKTV Freeview channel Dave was revealed as the new home of the show, and it’s fair to say that they’ve treated the small rouge one very well in the years since the big comeback.

Stephen King Reveals His Favorite Easter Egg to Look Out For in The Dark Tower Movie

There are going to be a lot of Stephen King Easter eggs in The Dark Tower. We already pointed out three of them that were included in the first trailer that was released. You can read up on those here. They include a photo of Overlook Hotel from The Shining, the ruins of an amusement park with a Pennywise sign inspired by It, and the Crimson King. Stephen King has a favorite Easter egg, though, that wasn't in the trailer and in a recent interview with IGN, he reveals what it is and where you can spot it. He explained:

“If viewers who are familiar with my work look very closely, they might see Cujo. Keep an eye out for Cujo in New York City.”

For those who aren't familiar with Cujo, he is a rabid St. Bernard from the novel and film. I saw the movie Cujo when I

WWE star punished backstage at Raw! Vince McMahon bans another WWE phrase?

In Dave Meltzer’s review of this week’s Raw in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, he recapped the main event segment where Mick Foley was defending all the progressive accomplishments Raw has had since the brand split. He mentioned Raw had the first women’s main event in 12 years and the first ever women’s Hell in a Cell match. You would think saying the first ever women’s match to main event a major WWE PPV would’ve been more impressive? Well according to Meltzer:

“They are still banned from saying that Charlotte vs. Banks was the main event at Hell in a Cell. So weird.”

After his altercation with Chris Jericho on WWE’s international tour, Sin Cara was reportedly ‘exiled’ to the Smackdown brand for the rest of the dates, and came very close to getting released outright for his third rumoured backstage bust-up. According to PWInsider and the Wrestling Observer,

James N. Kienitz Wilkins Introduces His Film "Indefinite Pitch"

  • MUBI
Mubi is partnering with the New York Film Festival to present highlights from Projections, a festival program of film and video work that expands upon our notions of what the moving image can do and be. James N. Kienitz Wilkin's Indefinite Pitch (2016), recipient of the festival's Kazuko Trust Award, is showing on Mubi in many countries around the world from October 18 - November 16, 2016.I’ve come to the conclusion that movies always communicate the circumstances in which they were made, and most of the time, these circumstances are unconscious influences. If one identifies with movies, or has dedicated one’s life to, or expects to make a living from, movies, then circumstantially, one's personal ambitions, dreams and memories get riskily exposed. Indefinite Pitch tries to pinpoint this.But not everything can be pinned down. In music, not all instruments make notes with a clear pitch. The rising and falling background

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 8 Review: eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12

For anyone who thought that Elliot inherited all of the unhinged genes in the Alderson family, well... Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 8 certainly cleared that misconception right up for you.

Darlene has been spiraling all season, in Elliot's absence, and "Successor" displayed the apex of that spiraling: cold-blooded murder.

The show has done a great, subtle job of hinting at Darlene slowly losing it since the very beginning of Mr. Robot Season 2.

In my review of Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 3, I specifically wondered whether Darlene might be capable of murdering Mrs. Romero, given her reaction to Mobley saying that Mrs. Romero saw him at the house shortly before her son was found dead. In retrospect, that's some great foreshadowing and a wonderfully subtle performance on Carly Chaikin's part.

I was a little bit disappointed that Darlene's victim was such a random character. Susan Jacobs' importance always felt like a bit of a retcon,

It's also pretty funny if you're a fan of the show to see these guys acting like this. See the video below.

Penny Dreadful Season Finale Review: The End

Is this truly the end?

The title card reading "The End" would seem to indicate without a doubt that, yes, the two part finale event comprised of Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 8 and Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 9 was actually the series finale.

As disappointing and downright traumatizing as that would be, I have to admit that these two hours did nicely tie up nearly every plot point in the series. It felt very series finale-ish.

Watch Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 9 Online

First, the elephant in the room (review) – Vanessa died. Voluntarily. At Ethan's hand. It was heartbreaking and tear-jerking, but ultimately, it made sense.

We'd already seen Vanessa reckon with what she was. We'd already seen her come to terms with the fact that she could never be a "normal" woman. Nor did she want to be, any longer.

Did You Catch Jennifer Aniston's Bizarre Reaction to Seeing Kate Beckinsale at the Critics' Choice Awards?
#JenniferAniston doesn't seem to like #KateBeckinsale's dress?? #CritcsChoiceAwards Wtf pic.twitter.com/qqrcke8mGh— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) January 18, 2016 As Kate Beckinsale prepared to present at the Critics' Choice Awards, the audience camera caught Jennifer Aniston's very strange reaction to seeing the Underworld actress walk across the stage. Jennifer noticeably gasps when she sees Kate, appears to say "watch out," and, after calming down, mumbles "okay" to herself. So weird! Was she worried Kate was about to pull a Jennifer Lawrence and trip on her gorgeous, floor-length silver gown?! Whatever the reason may be, Jen's face is a must see. Check it out above, and see her other hilarious candid moment from Sunday night.

Quentin Tarantino Made a Glaring Mistake in His Golden Globes Speech - And the Twitterverse Shamed Him for It
Oops. The Hateful Eight writer-director Quentin Tarantino made a major flub when he took to the stage to accept the Golden Globe for Best Original Score on behalf of the film's composer, Ennio Morricone. The director said Morricone had "never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show" - but as many film buffs were quick to point out on Twitter, Tarantino was wrong. The acclaimed composer has in fact won two Golden Globes, one for The Mission in 1987, and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000. Although Morricone has never won an Academy Award for a specific movie,
