‘Dunkirk’ Battles To Top Spot, ‘Valerian’ Flops [Box Office]

2 hours ago

If you had flagging faith that audiences would show up in numbers to a movie that wasn’t based on a comic book or brand, or a sequel, “Dunkirk” will restore your hope. It’s the first non-franchise film to win the weekend at the box office since March.

Christopher Nolan‘s nerve-jangling WWII movie battled its way to the top of the box office this weekend with an impressive $50.5 million. Outside of franchise films “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” it’s the director’s second best opening of his career behind “Inception.” It’s a feat made all the more remarkable considering there are no major stars in the film, Tom Hardy‘s face is mostly covered and his few words of dialogue are muddled for most of it, and where Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance arguably get the biggest emotional scenes.

‘Captain Marvel’s Pre ‘Iron Man’ Era & Villains Revealed

4 hours ago

Here’s a semi-interesting twist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, its upcoming “Captain Marvel” film will be set in the 1990s essentially making it a prequel to every McU film thus far beginning with “Iron Man” in 2007. The reasoning for this is unclear immediately, though fan theories are already sprouting, but at San Diego Comic Con yesterday several key details were revealed.

Ben Affleck Sort Of Denies Rumors: Suggests He Has One More ‘Batman’ Movie Left

15 hours ago

It appeared Warner Bros. and DC Films were going to be embarrassed. 24 hours before the Comic-Con panel for “Justice League” and the Dceu slate, a report came out revealing Ben Affleck would be slowly easing out of “The Batman” role. The news followed months of reports that said Affleck was tired of the role, tired of the exposure and tired of the Internet blowback and parsing every single thing he said.

New Poster For Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Breaks Out The Claws

Black Panther” is one of Marvel’s most highly anticipated films ever, and for good reason. For one thing, it’s directed by “Fruitvale Station” and “Creed” director Ryan Coogler, a filmmaker with a genuinely interesting point of view and distinct visual style. For another, it takes place in an entirely new locale for the McU, The Panther’s home country of Wakanda.

New Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Brings The Noise

17 hours ago

With the exception of James Gunn and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, it’s feeling more and more like Marvel, as a corporation, is itself the auteur behind their McU films. Irrespective of director — and Marvel has had their share of otherwise distinctive filmmakers (Jon WattsKenneth BranaghShane Black) — each film is distinctly “Marvel,” with the filmmakers barely leaving a trace of their own character on the work.

First Trailer For ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Steps Back Into The Park

18 hours ago

Let’s be honest, HBO is looking for a show to take over the “must-watch” status of “Game of Thrones,” after that show ends its run sometime next year. While they try to hammer out an idea for a prequel, it looks like they might have another show ready to step up. “Westworld” finished it’s first season as a bonafide hit for the network. For all the hype surrounding the first series, with it’s huge budget and all-star cast, HBO has to be pleased with how well received the first season was.

New ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Trailer Returns To The Upside Down

19 hours ago

Ever since Netflix’s “Stranger Things” came out of nowhere a year ago to become a pop-culture sensation unlike any other of recent memory, an air of mystery has surrounded its upcoming sophomore season. With a release date of Halloween 2017, a chilling Super Bowl teaser, and cast members referring to season 2 as “a lot more dark [than season 1], a lot more horror-oriented,” you can rest assured that the ‘80s throwback series is indeed upping the ante in its impending return.

‘Legion’ Might Bring In Professor X

20 hours ago

I will admit, ashamed as I am, to not yet having finished watching the first season of FX’s “Legion.” While the series pilot was truly one of the best episodes of television to air this year, subsequent episodes disappointed in their stricter adherence to traditional superhero show conventions. I bailed on the show fairly early.

I’ve been assured that in later episodes the show returns to the experimental short-film aesthetic of the pilot, and have been planning  to catch myself up on the series at some point down the line.

‘Wonder Woman 2,’ ‘Suicide Squad 2’ & More DC Films Confirmed At Comic Con

22 hours ago

It’s been an interesting 48 hours for Warner Bros. and DC Films. On Friday, it was reported that Ben Affleck was leaving the Batman role, or more precisely would be phasing himself out of the role (by Kim Masters of THR who is rarely wrong, fyi). It seemed like a PR disaster; just 24 hours before the Warner Bros. Comic Con panel, it appeared as though there would be no more Affleck as Batman in the Dceu.

Trailer For ‘Riverdale’ Season 2 Welcomes The Angel Of Death

22 hours ago

While I’ve never seen a single episode of “Game Of Thrones,” I’ve seen all of “Riverdale” so far. That’s right, the dark Archie Comics adaptation is my jam, and the title town is my Westeros, which means I can’t wait for the second season. I’d definitely wager that some of our readers are (secret) fans of the show too.

Spoilers ahead if you’re still catching up, but at the end of first season, Archie’s dad, played by a weathered Luke Perry, was left with a bullet in the gut.

Ben Affleck Shrugs Off The Rumors He’s Leaving ‘The Batman’ Role

22 hours ago

Yesterday, the geek world was rocked when it was reported that Ben Affleck was hanging up the cape and cowl as Batman after “Justice League.” Of course, nothing was official, but Kim Masters at The Hollywood Reporter is a veteran who knows her stuff, but nonetheless, Dceu fans held firm that the report was unsubstantiated. Well, today, they have some good news from Affleck himself. Sort of.

The actor swung through San Diego Comic Con for his obligatory stint plugging “Justice League,” and addressed the rumors he was saying farewell as Batman, by saying the following:

"I would be a fucking ape on the ground for Matt Reeves," says Affleck.

‘The Flash’: DC Films Will Make A ‘Flashpoint’ Movie

22 hours ago

So that “Flash” adaptation starring Ezra Miller has false-started a few times. First Rick Famuyiwa (“Dope”) was supposed to direct the film and before that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were developing the property (and there’s rumors that they could come back now). Now, today at San Diego Comic Con announced by DC Films chief Geoff Johns with the cast of “Justice League”— Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher looking on— comes the news: “The Flash” movie is finally coming and it’s now called “The Flash: Flashpoint” an adaptation of a 2011 comic book storyline that features an alternate universe for the character Barry Allen.

Christopher Nolan Explains Why He Doesn’t Allow Phones On Set

22 July 2017 7:29 AM, PDT

As Christopher Nolan continues his press rounds for his excellent “Dunkirk,” he has been revealing a lot about his filmmaking process including who got to look at his scripts, why he cast Harry Styles, and why he doesn’t like Netflix. During an interesting Q&A with Esquire, he also revealed that he doesn’t allow cell phones on set and his reasons why.

Like his friend and fellow filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, Nolan doesn’t allow phones on set because he believes they are a “huge distraction,” and prevent people from being truly focused on the task at hand.

Rumor: WB/DC Films Working On ‘Harley Quinn Vs The Joker’ Spin-Off Film

22 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT

It seems as if audiences area going to get a lot of Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe. While critical reception to “Suicide Squad” was mixed, to say the least, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was a clear standout, and Warner Bros. was quick to announce a pair of films that feature the character. The first was the obvious “Suicide Squad” sequel, rumored to be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.

New ‘Game of Thrones’ Trailer Looks Ahead At Season 7

22 July 2017 5:35 AM, PDT

So, this year “Game of Thrones” started airing prior to San Diego Comic Con, which made Friday’s big GoT panel a less-than-streamlined event. And while there wasn’t a hotly anticipated season trailer to reveal, HBO did release a “weeks ahead” Comic-Con trailer which has some tantalizing morsels of Westeros action for us Throneheads to pore over while we wait impatiently for the next episode of the show to air literally in two days.
