‘Wonka’ Prequel Movie From ‘Paddington’ Director Now Has a Golden Ticket for a 2023 Release

Hollywood loves brand awareness. They love it more than life itself. A studio is far more likely to give a green light to an established property than to something fresh and original, because that’s just how it goes. It’s nothing new – Tinseltown has been doing this for decades. But that doesn’t make it any less draining. The latest example: Wonka, a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel movie that explores the origins of chocolatier and child murderer Willy Wonka. It sounds unnecessary, bu...

VOTD: Watch ‘The Heart of Batman: The Story of Batman: The Animated Series’ Documentary

Even though it was geared towards kids in the mid-90s, Batman: The Animated Series is still considered to be one of the definitive adaptations of The Dark Knight. Created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, the series made full use of Batman’s extensive rogues galley and wasn’t afraid to get a little dark and gritty on Saturday mornings. But how did this incredible animated series come together? You can find out in the documentary The Heart of Batman: The Story of Batman: The Animated Series, availabl...

The ‘Peacemaker’ Series Was Conceived and Written By a Bored James Gunn During Quarantine

HBO Max’s upcoming Peacemaker series seemed to come out of nowhere — all of a sudden, John Cena was going to star in a limited series spin-off of James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad, reprising his character in a movie that hadn’t even come out yet. And in a sense, the whole thing — which was announced and put in development in the span of weeks — was all unplanned, according to Gunn. In an Instagram post marking the beginning of production for Peacemaker, Gunn revealed that he conceived of and wr...

‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ is a Movie Again and No Longer a Miniseries, According to Snyder Himself

Zack Snyder‘s Justice League has transformed from a movie, to a years-long internet campaign, to a miniseries, and now, back to a movie again. That is, according to the filmmaker himself, who revealed a few new details of his highly anticipated “Snyder Cut” of Justice League, which is coming to HBO Max this year. Another day, another Vero update from Zack Snyder, who used the social media platform (of which he still appears to be the only high-profile user) to reveal that the currently-title...

Watch: HBO Max Teases ‘Mortal Kombat’, ‘Space Jam 2’, ‘The Suicide Squad’ and More in New Sizzle Reel

Warner Bros. Pictures is shaking up the theatrical release model this year by releasing their entire movie slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max for a limited time. Wonder Woman 1984 was the first to try out this strategy, but the studio wanted to take it much further by sending movies like Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, and more to the streaming service. Now a new HBO Max sizzle reel teases all the same-day premieres coming throughout 20...

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Release Date Bumped Up Two Months from May to March

Godzilla vs. Kong has been delayed several times over the past year, but the most recent delay from November 2020 came as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic. Though movie theaters likely aren’t going to be back at their normal operating capacity in this first half of 2021, that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from releasing the movie during that window. That’s because of their new release plan to send all of their movies into theaters and onto HBO Max simultaneously. In fact, Warn...

WB Scrambles to Appease Talent Following Its HBO Max Announcement

When Warner Bros. announced it would be releasing its entire 2021 film slate in theaters and simultaneously on HBO Max, it sent shockwaves through the film industry – and the reverberations were felt most strongly by the people who were directly involved with many of those movies, because none of them were told about the decision before it became public. Several big-name directors and actors (and their representatives) were none too pleased about potentially losing out on the financial bonuses ...

‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie ‘The Many Saints of Newark’ Will Now Open in September

The Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints of Newark has a new release date, again. The movie, which takes place during Tony Soprano’s younger days in 1960s and 1970s in Newark, New Jersey, was originally slated to arrive in theaters in 2020. Of course, the coronavirus got in the way, and the release was pushed to March 2021. Now, Warner Bros. has gone ahead and pushed the movie again – this time to September, where it will open in theaters and hit HBO Max on the same day. At the start of 20...

Ray Fisher Confirms That He is No Longer Playing Cyborg in ‘The Flash’ Movie

Last week, rumors swirled that Justice League team member Cyborg had been written out of The Flash, which is currently in development at Warner Bros. Pictures. This supposedly came as a direct result of the controversy that has been brewing between co-star Ray Fisher and the studio in the wake of the actor’s allegations of inappropriate and unprofessional behavior from director Joss Whedon during reshoots on Justice League. Now, Ray Fisher has confirmed that he will not be playing Cyborg in The...

A Chat with with Bob Scott, the cartoonist creator of "Bear with Me"

  by Mike Rhode Animator and webcomics artist Bob Scott has nothing to do with the DC-area. In fact, he has only been here as a teenage tourist, as he reveals later on in this interview. However, he's making the rounds to promote his new book, and sent me a very nice email, so why not expand our focus just this once in these odd times? He answered our usual questions, modified somewhat as necessary. First, here's a pocket biography, compiled from Bob's pages at Hermes Press a...

The ‘Harry Potter’ Video Game ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ Has Been Delayed Until 2022

Video game fans will have to evanesco the upcoming RPG Hogwarts Legacy from their most anticipated games of 2021 lists. Warner Bros. has delayed the Harry Potter game to next year, giving developers time to perfect the first open-world video game set in the Harry Potter universe. Warner Bros. announced Wednesday that Hogwarts Legacy, the first-ever open-world action role-playing game set in the Wizarding World, will be launching in 2022 instead of 2021, as had been originally announced. “We ...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Honest Trailer: We Ruined Movie Theaters for Goldar vs a Jellicle Cat

Wonder Woman 1984 arrived in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day, giving a nice holiday gift to fans stuck at home and a big middle finger to the future of movie theaters. But many who watched Wonder Woman 1984 felt like they got screwed too, because just like the wishes at the center of the DC Comics sequel, it came with some unsavory consequences. And as the Wonder Woman 1984 Honest Trailer illustrates, it’s not just the creepy use of a random man as a vessel for Steve Trevor to fulfill ...

‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ Trailer: The Fred Hampton Story is Headed to Sundance

Time for another great trailer for Judas and the Black Messiah, the film that tells the story of how the FBI targeted Black Panther leader Fred Hampton. Directed by Shaka King, Judas and the Black Messiah is expected to be an awards season contender, and the movie just got added to the 2021 Sundance Film Festival line-up to boot. The story focuses on how FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) infiltrated the Black Panthers to get close to Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). Judas and the Bl...

‘The Shawshank Redemption’ Honest Trailer: The Movie No One Saw in Theaters But Everyone Watches on Cable

The Shawshank Redemption may be a beloved drama that you’ll watch every single time it’s playing on AMC, TNT or whatever cable channel is playing it on a lazy Sunday afternoon. But as the Honest Trailer for the film from Frank Darabont reminds us, when it arrived on the big screen in September 1994, the movie only earned $16 million in its initial theatrical release. Meanwhile, Forrest Gump was in the middle of an insane 42-week theatrical run. Just like Andy Dufresne, the movie had to trek thr...

Warner Bros. and Legendary Nearing Deal Over ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Release

Late last year, Warner Bros. made history by announcing their upcoming 2021 theatrical slate would also be going straight to HBO Max on the same day said films were intended to hit theaters. It was a bold, game-changing move – and it was met with immediate resistance. Because as it turns out, the folks at Warners had neglected to inform the filmmakers and actors involved with their upcoming movies of the decision. Legendary Pictures, which has an agreement to co-produce and co-finance films wit...

New James Wan Horror Movie ‘Malignant’ is Rated R for “Strong Horror Violence and Gruesome Images”

James Wan last released horror movie was 2016’s The Conjuring 2 – but he already has his return to horror ready to go for 2021. It’s Malignant, a film that was initially set to open in 2020, until all that bad stuff happened to delay it. Malignant is now set to arrive in theaters and on HBO Max this year, and while we still have no idea what the damn movie’s about, we now know what it’s rated: R, for “Strong horror violence, gruesome images, and for language.” While Wan is the filmmaker who lau...

Zack Snyder Discusses His Future with DC Movies, Reveals Scrapped ‘Wonder Woman’ History Photo

Director Zack Snyder is busy getting his four-hour miniseries cut of Justice League ready for a release on HBO Max. There are plenty of fans excited about this prospect, and some of them are so hyped that they’re hoping this will let Zack Snyder follow through on his ultimate vision for the DC Extended Universe.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Box Office Drops 67% in Its Second Weekend

Wonder Woman 1984 might have been flying high in its opening weekend, with the biggest post-pandemic opening yet, but it experienced a steep drop at domestic theaters in its second weekend. But whether that’s down to the unusual day-and-date release on HBO Max or poor word-of-mouth buzz is still uncertain. Deadline reports that the Wonder Woman 1984 box office experienced a massive 67% drop during its second weekend in domestic theaters, more than the average second-weekend drop of roughly 5...

‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins Describes “Internal War” Over Character’s Direction in First Film

Patty Jenkins may not be the most critically acclaimed director in Hollywood right now considering the mixed reaction to Wonder Woman 1984, but she worked hard to get here. And the reception to the Wonder Woman sequel aside, Jenkins couldn’t be more on top of the world: Wonder Woman 3 has been greenlit, the filmmaker is set to direct a Star Wars movie, and she’s essentially got a blank check for her next projects. And it’s all thanks to the critical and commercial success of 2017’s Wonder Woman...

Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Movie Casts Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Blues Guitar Legend B.B. King

Kelvin Harrison Jr., who recently played Black Panther activist Fred Hampton in Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, will soon play another larger than life figure in a new movie. Harrison has been cast as blues icon B.B. King in Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann‘s movie about Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll. Get the details below. Hey, remember Baz Luhrmann?

Here’s Why ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Doesn’t Have Diana Using Her Sword or Shield

In the midst of all the tomfoolery and shenanigans taking place during Wonder Woman 1984, I totally missed the fact that Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman never once uses her iconic shield or sword – two things she used in the first film. She uses her magical lasso a lot, but the shield/sword combo never makes an appearance. Like all things in movies, this was a deliberate choice, and star Gal Gadot has revealed why the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel nixed Wonder Woman’s weapons. As I watched Wonder W...

Cool Stuff: ‘The Dark Knight’ Statue of The Joker Features an Uncanny Likeness of Heath Ledger

The Dark Knight is considered one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, and plenty of reverence for the film comes from Heath Ledger‘s brief but unforgettable screentime as the The Joker. There has been plenty of merchandise featuring Heath Ledger as the Clown Prince of Crime over the years, but we’ve never seen a collectible with such an uncanny likeness of the actor as we have on this new statue from Queen Studios. Get an up close look at The Dark Knight Joker statue below. Queen S...

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Box Office Strong Enough to Help Movie Theater Stocks, But Theaters Aren’t Out of the Woods Yet

Wonder Woman 1984 hit HBO Max on Christmas Day, but it also opened in theaters. This means for the first time in a while we have some box office numbers for a big studio movie, and guess what? Those numbers aren’t too shabby! To be clear, Wonder Woman 1984‘s opening weekend box office haul would be a disappointment in a normal year, but this isn’t a normal year. At the moment, Wonder Woman 1984 is looking at a $17 million domestic opening – good enough to bolster movie theater stocks. But there...

Will ‘Wonder Woman 4’ Come After ‘Wonder Woman 3’? Patty Jenkins Hints at Two More Stories

When word broke that Warner Bros. was moving ahead with Patty Jenkins directing Wonder Woman 3, there was much talk about it being the end of a trilogy. But not so fast! Jenkins herself says she has at least two different stories in mind. One is obviously Wonder Woman 3, but what about beyond that? It’s easy to jump to the conclusion that Jenkins has a plan for Wonder Woman 4 as well, but in the past, it’s been reported that Jenkins and Warner Bros. were developing a spin-off film about the Ama...

Patty Jenkins Fought for Both ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Opening Scenes When Warner Bros. Wanted One Cut

Wonder Woman 1984 opens with two different action sequences that serve two very different purposes. The first is a flashback sequence showing a young Diana (Lilly Aspell) competing in an Olympic-style competitive event on Themyscira, and the second brings us into Washington D.C. in 1984 with a vibrant, cartoonish sort of jewelry heist that adult Diana (Gal Gadot) stops in a shopping mall. However, one of them almost didn’t make the cut because Warner Bros. Pictures wanted director Patty Jenkins...

‘Wonder Woman 3’ Will Be a Contemporary Story With the Door Open for a Cheetah Return, Patty Jenkins Says

Almost immediately after Wonder Woman 1984‘s release, Warner Bros. greenlit a sequel, which director Patty Jenkins has been steadily teasing for the past year. But while plans are always in motion, Jenkins has some tantalizing hints about where Wonder Woman 3 could go. Spoilers for Wonder Woman 1984 follow. In an interview with Den of Geek, Patty Jenkins confirmed that she purposefully left the fate of Barbara Minerva ambiguous at the end of Wonder Woman 1984 in order to leave the door open ...
