Why Sean Connery Turned Down ‘The Matrix’, But Not the Role You Think He Did

Pictures didn’t do enough to distance this movie from its predecessor, opting only to add “the” to the title and let audiences figure out whether it was a sequel or a reboot or whatever. Because as The Suicide Squad Honest Trailer po...

While his Marvel entries can’t be classified as subversive, he has plenty of other off-kilter work to his name – he directed the ultra-violent superhero send-up Super and the gooey mon...
