Gunn-ing for Peace: James Gunn on ‘Peacemaker’

Genius. Gonzo. Hilarious. Surreal. All four adjectives typically go hand-in-hand when speaking about the work of Peacemaker and The Suicide Squad mastermind, James Gunn. Indeed, the master filmmaker has been putting his unique, identifiable stamp on every project he’s shepherded since the first film he wrote — 1997’s Tromeo and Juliet. And from there, Gunn’s star has only grown brighter, serving as a testament to how sometimes, Hollywood gets it right, and rightfully rewards the talented.

‘Euphoria’ Promises More Drama and Trauma This Season


Directed by show creator Sam Levinson, the season 2 premiere, “Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door,” transports viewers into another night of Euphoria. That title does more than reference the show’s heavy inclusion of sex, drugs, and more sex and drugs, it’s a nod to its most central theme — that feeling of euphoria is a treasure sought out by most everyone in the series.

NOC Review: ‘Peacemaker’ Makes For a Solid Piece of Television

Without hesitation, I can declare proudly that James Gunn’s gonzo comic book masterpiece, The Suicide Squad was easily one of my top five films of 2021. In addition to a fun story, gorgeously shot visuals, and hilariously raunchy script, we fell in love with the likes of fellow misfits Ratcatcher II, Polka Dot Man, and King Shark.

Westeros is Coming to Life in the New ‘Game of Thrones’ Studio Tour

Linen Mill Studios. That was the home of a little show called Game of Thrones for several years. And in that time, it was never publicly available for visitors to tour to see the majestic, gorgeous sets of the Emmy-winning series. But today, December 1, the wall is coming down!

HBO Celebrates ‘Scene In Black’ With Launch Party In New York

When I got to Manhattan on Saturday, November 20, after a bumpy four-and-a-half hour bus ride, I didn’t know what to expect. Not only was it my first time in the city, I was there to attend HBO’s first “Scene in Black” event. The event, centered on the new DMX documentary, featured a premiere showing of the doc, a live conversation with director Chritopher Frierson and event host Brandon “Jinx” Jenkins, and a performance by Jadakiss.

Enter the ‘House of the Dragon’ as New Teaser Trailer Debuts

Let’s address the elephant in the room. Game of Thrones did not end well. For every brilliant season the show had, there was an episode in the final season that disappointed fans. But whatever the case, the fact of the matter remains, before GoT there had never been anything like it on television ever, and still isn’t. We can throw a million and one fantasy clones at a streaming service (Shadow and Bone, Wheel of Time, Foundation, The Witcher, Cursed, etc.). And yet none of them ever matched the sheer scale or cinematic quality of fantasy storytelling that the original show achieved.

New ‘Peacemaker’ Clip Shows Up in Full Cosplay Mode

For those out there, like myself, who can’t get enough of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, any semblance or scrap of a sequel is, frankly, something to foam at the mouth for. And though Peacemaker proved to be the sequel’s true villain, there’s something about John Cena’s oblivious earnestness and hilarious charisma that does make me curious to see where the upcoming Peacemaker series is going to go. We know after the events of the film, that ARGUS desk-jockeys John Economos (Steve Agee) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) were sent to take back a very-much-alive Christopher Smith. But where things go from there remains a real mystery.

Production Begins on HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’

I realize there’s been controversy from haters who disliked the second game. But to be quite frank, I’m not one of those people, and for my money Neil Druckman’s The Last of Us remains one of my favorite video games of all time! It is a beautiful story about humanity, love, loss, mistakes, regrets and redemption. The relationship between Joel and Ellie is one of the most beautiful human stories ever developed in any game.
