Director Robert Rodriguez has crafted some of the finest action films in the past 30 years, from the El Mariachi trilogy to Sin City, even becoming part of The Mandalorian team! His new film Hypnotic, hitting theaters this Friday, features a terrific ensemble of fantastic character actors, from Ben Affleck to William Fichtner, but none more charming than the incredible Alice Braga.
The first reactions for The Flash are hitting the internet as we speak. After a successful Los Angeles screening and a wider screening at this week’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the hype for the movie is growing increasingly strong with every social reaction that hits the internet.
CinemaCon, the annual trade show where Hollywood unveils its most exciting upcoming releases exclusively to the world’s theater owners , is currently underway in Las Vegas. As part of Warner Bros.’ presentation today, new images from The Flash were released, as was the movie’s latest trailer!
We’re a few months out from the theatrical debut of The Flash, but the merchandise stream keeps flowing! Today, McFarlane Toys officially unveiled their line of 7-inch figures, but it was a couple of vehicles that stole the show. For the first time ever, Michael Keaton’s Batmobile and Batwing will be available for 1:12 collectors!
For basketball fans, the GOAT debate is never-ending. And while LeBron may have just broken an unbreakable scoring record, only Michael Jordan can claim an A-List origin movie… for his shoes. Now that movie, AIR, has unveiled an official trailer.
AIR directed by Ben Affleck, from Amazon Studios, Skydance Sports, Mandalay Pictures, and the first project from Affleck and Matt Damon’s Artists Equity, will receive a wide global theatrical release in advance of its premiere on Prime Video.
We love Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck. They’re terrific actors. And they elevate every project they’re in. No matter how repetitive and pointless it might be. And those are the two adjectives that come to mind when I think about Deep Water.
Well, so much for that DC Films sizzle reel that premiered during the Super Bowl and was attached to each reel of The Batman over the weekend. After promising all the heroes we were going to see in 2022, it seems it was all a beautiful lie (sorry, Batfleck).
A few weeks ago, Hulu released a teaser for their upcoming psychological thriller, Deep Water, starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas. Yesterday, the streaming service has just released a longer, fuller trailer with more elements about the story, and showcasing the power for de Armas! Check it out here!
After raking in $130 million at the box office, Keith, Dominic, and Britney are here to break down all the highs and lows of Matt Reeves’ epic film noir take on The Batman. How would Keith rewrite The Riddler? What did Britney think of Emo-Bruce? Where does Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman rank for Dominic?

The first substantial glimpse of The Flash film premiered at DC FanDome today, after years of teaser images and fan speculation surrounding the much-anticipated DC Universe live-action feature. The video released today confirms that the titular super-speedster will meet up with Batman, the Batcave, the Batmobile, and we reckon, another Batman.
The timing and relevancy of Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel underscore how little has changed for women between its 14th century France setting and now. Based on a true story, the gripping period piece tells the story of a courageous Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) who accuses squire Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) of rape. Though no one believes her accusations, her husband, Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), challenges his former friend, now bitter rival grueling duel to the death.
Today is the day. Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguehas finally been released to HBO Max and people can now see the director’s four-hour magnum opus as he bids adieu to the DC Universe. And while a lot has been made about the restored scenes and characters that were left on the cutting room floor of the theatrical edition, I was most struck by the differences between shots that appear in both versions. Below you will find side-by-side comparisons of several of these scenes.
Long time readers of this site will know that I have a a complicated history with Zack Snyder’s take on DC’s most iconic characters. While my opinion on his first foray, Man of Steel1, has waxed and waned over the years, I’ve never been able to see Batman v Superman as anything more than a convoluted mess of bombast and pretension feigning to be more profound than it actually was (Batman’s fight in the warehouse was cool, I guess). Moreover, the ferocity of the online debate about these films — both the religiosity of Snyder’s fans and the unnecessary cruelty of his detractors — turned me off to the whole enterprise. Talking about these movies on the internet was not worth the hassle or the harassment (says the guy who actively engaged in online arguments defending The Last Jedi for at least three years).
I am a Marvel fanboy. I always have been. DC has been kind to my youth, don’t get me wrong, but as the last several years have attested, it’s been difficult holding our collective breath for a superhero movie from DC that didn’t get immense flack. I won’t lie to you — I’ve goaded friends, some more than others, for rallying behind something like #TheSnyderCut back in 2017.
Fast forward a handful of years and a whole lot of headlines to Saturday’s Snyder Cut panel at DC FanDome and… I’m sold.
DC FanDome’s DCEU Flash panel was a short one. Or rather, it went by in a flash.
Bad pun aside, the panel was a little disappointing content-wise, especially when put up against Wonder Woman 1984. No plot or title was revealed. No new casting announcements. But what little we did get with respect to the film’s concept is sure to keep DC fandom occupied with speculation.
