‘Shazam!’ TV Spot Pokes Fun at ‘The Dark Knight’

The DC Universe has turned over a new leaf, with the decidedly goofy Aquaman getting followed by an even goofier superhero film, Shazam! And the latest Shazam! TV spot is remind you of that. The brief trailer is chock full of new, exciting footage, but the best part of the TV spot is its tongue-in-cheek nod to the famous The Dark Knight tagline: “Why so serious?” Because, honestly, why do we need to be so serious? Shazam TV Spot The new Shazam! TV spot explores what any kid would do if ...

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Extended Cut is Coming to Blu-ray and Digital HD

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald arrived in theaters last year to mixed reviews. Critics and fans alike took issue with the plot, the characterization, and the pacing, and were left wanting for something to recapture the magic of Harry Potter. One thing they weren’t wanting was a longer version of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel. But if you were jonesing for an extended cut, you’re in luck, because the Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald Blu-ray and Digital ...

Drew Struzan’s ‘Blade Runner’ Poster Will Be On Sale This Week

Drew Struzan is arguably one of the most influential pop artists of all time, responsible for creating the iconic movie posters for films like the Star Wars saga, the Back to the Future trilogy, the Indiana Jones saga, The Thing, and many more. He also created a poster for Ridley Scott‘s 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, and since we’re now living in 2019 – the year Blade Runner takes place – it seems appropriate that Struzan’s poster would be back in the spotlight. Bottleneck Gallery is sellin...

‘Aquaman’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide But Loses Fourth Weekend to ‘The Upside’

Aquaman has only been in theaters around the world for over a month, but the blockbuster comic book movie has already crossed the $1 billion mark. It’s the first DC Extended Universe movie to reach that box office milestone, and it’s only the 37th film in history to cross that threshold. Who would have thought it would be DC’s most mocked superhero making this achievement? However, even though Aquaman now has over $1.02 billion for its worldwide box office haul, the past weekend’s domestic haul...

More investors are betting on virtual influencers like Lil Miquela

Brud, the company behind the virtual celebrity Lil Miquela, is now worth at least $125 million thanks to a new round of financing the company is currently closing. Meanwhile, new venture-backed companies like the superstealthy Shadows, SuperPlastic, and Toonstar are all developing virtual characters that will launch via social media channels like Snap and Instagram, or on their own platforms.

The LEGO Movie 2 Confirms Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie & Jason Momoa as Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn & Aquaman

The LEGO Movie already gave us the minifigure version of Justice League, and they all came together again in The LEGO Batman Movie. But when we see a few of the DC Comics superheroes in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, they’ll have different voices than we’ve heard before, but they’ll still be very recognizable. Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie and Jason Momoa have all been confirmed to lend their voices to the LEGO minifigure versions of their live-action DC Extended Universe characters Wonder Woman...

Intel and Warner Brothers Teamed Up at CES to Show What Entertainment Would Look Like in a Self-Driving Car

With autonomous cars on their way to becoming a widespread reality, companies are starting to think about how they can monetize the extra time and space that a robot in the driver's seat allows passengers. Intel and Warner Brothers proposed a vision for what that media-transportation fusion might look like at this year's Consumer Electronics...

‘Minecraft’ Movie to Be Helmed by ‘Nick and Norah’s Infinity Playlist’ Director Peter Sollett

The Minecraft movie has found its new director. Following It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator and star Rob McElhenney‘s departure from the director’s chair after three years, Peter Sollett has been tapped as the new Minecraft movie director and writer. The Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist director steps up to helm the long-anticipated film adaptation of the popular video game of the same name.

Jazz Today: Take 6 at 30—Still in Sweet Harmony

None The members of Take 6 come down the stairs at New York's Blue Note jazz club in November of 2018, wireless microphones in hand and creating a complete orchestra of funk with their voices as they walk. They're having fun. Alvin Chea's resonant bass thumps and leaps as vocal percussion clips and whooshes. They slide through a narrow aisle, brushing the backs of fans sitting at tables as they smile and then ease up onto a stage set with six stools and, almost an afterthought, a couple of keyb...

‘Aquaman’ VFX Reel Shows How the Underwater City of Atlantis Came to Life

Director James Wan had to craft a lavish underwater world primarily out of visual effects, so it’s no wonder that the before and after shots are so dramatic in this Aquaman VFX reel. On the heels of Aquaman‘s splashy box office success, Warner Bros. has released a video that shows the painstaking work that went into building the expansive underwater world of Atlantis, and all those flow-y hair shots.

‘Space Jam’ Sequel ‘Skate Jam’ Almost Happened, Starring Tony Hawk

A Space Jam sequel is currently in the works with LeBron James in the lead, but at one point, we almost had a very different follow-up. According to skateboard legend Tony Hawk, Warner Bros. approached him in the early 2000s to star in a film called Skate Jam, which would presumably feature the Looney Tunes characters riding skateboards and saying things like “Sick shred, bro! Now hit the halfpipe!” Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?), the box office failure of Looney Tunes: Back in Action ...

Weekend Box Office: ‘Aquaman’ is Now the Highest Grossing DCEU Movie

It’s official: Aquaman is now the champion of the DCEU. A few years ago, if you had told me a movie starring Aquaman would outgross one featuring Batman and Superman, I might have laughed. But things change, and audiences can’t seem to get enough of James Wan‘s underwater hero. The Warner Bros. flick remained at the top of the box office for a third weekend in a row, with Escape Room coming in a distant second. The King of Atlantis is now the King of the Box Office and the King of the DCEU. ...

Cool Stuff: ‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Unveils Huge Apocalypseburg Playset

The LEGO Movie 2 is coming to theaters next month, but the LEGO sets inspired by the movie are already hitting shelves. We’ve gotten a glimpse at some of the playsets you can find in stores now, but the latest addition is one of the biggest that has ever been created for the LEGO Movie franchise.

J.K. Rowling May Have Been Teasing That ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Twist Since 2016

Love or hate the big twist at the end of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, you can’t deny that J.K. Rowling is a master of foreshadowing, even if it’s planting Easter eggs that no one will discover until two years later. The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald twist involving Credence (Ezra Miller) was one that no one saw coming — except for perhaps a few internet sleuths who dug through Rowling’s personal website and found a clue hinting at said twist all the way back in 201...

‘The LEGO Movie 2’ TV Spot: LEGO Batman is Such a Humble Hero

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part revealed a new international trailer not too long ago, showing off the return of the LEGO Justice League. Now a new TV spot brings the DC Comics superhero team back in the minifigure form, but of course, the real superhero star is none other than LEGO Batman making a return, and it looks like he’s even carrying some Oscars in this movie, even though The LEGO Batman Movie got snubbed for a Best Animated Feature nomination last year.

VOTD: ‘Ready Player One’ VFX Breakdown Reveals the Layers of Digital Animation

Regardless of whether you ended up enjoying the pop culture extravaganza that was Ready Player One, it’s hard to deny that the visual effects used to bring the digital world of The OASIS to life were quite the visual spectacle. It’s all thanks to the wizards at Industrial Light and Magic, and the special effects house has released a breakdown showing the layers of the animation we saw on the big screen.

‘Aquaman’ Spoiler Review: A Big, Goofy Cartoon With Larger Ambitions

Aquaman rides a bizarre line between serious and silly. On one hand, it’s a tale of environmentalism centered on a mixed-race character trying to find his place. On the other, it features Jason Momoa falling off a cliff, scored like a Wile E. Coyote cartoon. Only one of these really works. The film’s two disparate halves never quite coalesce; recent superhero movies like Black Panther and Into the Spider-Verse strike a much neater balance between tone and subject, but despite being sluggish...

‘Aquaman’ Swims to the Top of the Weekend Box Office For the Second Week

The final weekend of 2018 came and went, and Aquaman continued to sit at the top of the box office. January tends to be a dumping ground for studios, so it’s unlikely that James Wan’s submerged superhero will be washed away anytime soon – unless audiences really get a craving for Escape Room. The rest of the weekend box office remained predictable: Mary Poppins Returns held on at second, and Bumblebee is stuck at third.  Christmas is usually a big time for movies, but the holiday is gone, and...

‘Aquaman’ Easter Egg Added By James Wan Specifically for Edgar Wright

Based on the splash that Aquaman made at the box office this weekend, you probably got a chance to see this movie about a fish-man and his epic undersea adventures and get your senses assaulted by a tidal wave of lavish visual imagery So you’d be forgiven for missing a few Aquaman Easter eggs along the way. Unless, that is, you’re Edgar Wright. The Baby Driver director has an Aquaman Easter Egg dedicated just to him by James Wan, who gamely took on a bet with Wright two years ago involving a ca...

‘Green Lantern’ Was Either Made Five Years Too Early or Five Years Too Late

Most movies come and go without a second thought. Only a very few rise to the top of our minds and burrow into our subconscious as the exact movie we need at a particular time. The right movie of an age. Saturday Night Fever, The French Connection, Clueless, Apocalypse Now. A moment. A mood. They capture something fundamental about the time they exist in and say precisely what needs to be said about it. Green Lantern isn’t one of those movies. It’s an even rarer artifact. The kind of movie that...

Patrick Wilson Masters the Complex Villain in ‘Aquaman’ [Interview]

With his blonde hair and classically handsome good looks, Patrick Wilson is the spitting image of the comic book Aquaman. Which is why his casting as the aquatic superhero’s archenemy Orm Marius, aka Ocean Master, is such a stroke of genius. “Truthfully, me with blonde hair is closer to prototypical Aquaman,” Wilson told me in an interview ahead of the release of Aquaman. “So I thought, ‘Let’s use that to our advantage.'” Wilson dyed his blonde hair an even lighter shade — “almost a throwback t...
