Spider-Man: Homecoming – Trailer 3

Cutting an effective trailer is a strange mix of art and science and too much of either can ruin it. And they’re more important than you think. Part of what saved Suicide Squad was the  trailer, which (unfortunatel) made promises the movie itself didn’t quite live up to, was so well-received by movie goers. By […]

The Second Week Curse Strikes Suicide Squad!

Which, if you follow Warner Bros. and DC Films is pretty much par for the course because, as big as the 67.3 percent fall for Suicide Squad was, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice performed even worse, declining 69 percent.

Though reshoots can also happen when a movie is believed to be in danger and […]

Crossbones From Captain America: Civil War!

Various movie sites have posted an image of Crossbones from the upcoming Captain America: Civil War and unlike most of the cast of Suicide Squad, he looks pretty awesome. For those of you that don’t recall, at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier you see Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo) in a hospital bed after […]

Jared Leto As The Joker!

You can say a lot of things about how DC Entertainment is creating movies, though one thing you can’t say is that they’re playing it safe.  Superman killing Zod, the virtual destruction of Metropolis, they’re definitely looking to make themselves a real alternative to Marvel Studios. ScreenRant recently posted the photo to the left, of Jared […]
