WarnerBros is going full steam ahead with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice clips, with the latest TV spot airing during a recent episode of Conan.
The TV spot doesn't show much new, but what it does show is Superman ripping open the doors to the Batmobile, and being a menace to Batman. Superman says "next time they shine your light in the sky, don't go to it. The Bat is dead. Bury it."
Batman seems pissed, responding with "tell me, do you bleed?" with Superman looking at him like he's nothing - and then flying away. Batman looks to the skies, adding "you will".
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit cinemas on March 25, and I for one, cannot wait.
We're so close to the fourth season of Netflix's hit original show House of Cards, with the new "The Leader We Deserve" trailer showing Frank Underwood's journey so far.
The trailer premiered during the Golden Globes last night, and concentrates on its main character: Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood. This is the first proper teaser for the full season, with the previous teasers being faux campaign ads for Underwood and his Presidency within House of Cards.
Two new photos have surfaced from the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie that seem to show both the more modern setting as well as quite the action packed historic backdrop.
Now we can sort of see that the larger plot elements are at least being taken into consideration. There's no explanation as to what kind of captivity Michael Fassbender's character is in, though at least it's in the modern age, or the near future. How they plan on working in the Animus will be interesting.
Now the second shot, below and after the break, is far more action packed and set in what should be 15th Century Spain, which is the era that Fassbender's character is from. But the clothing and other elements actually look like they could be from an earlier time. Regardless, for two hours in 2017, we'll get to watch someone be sneaky and skulk in the shadows while looking for secrets to save the world, instead of playing it ourselves.
CES 2016 - After rumors that the second season of Daredevil would premiere against Batman v Superman, Netflix has set the record straight: Daredevil's second season will premiere on March 18 at 12:01AM PST.
Marvel has since released a teaser trailer for Daredevil's second season, teasing Matt Murdock's battles throughout the binge-worthy season. If you haven't watched the first season already, you need to load it up right now.
Daredevil was one of the best Netflix shows from 2015, with season two rumored to drop on March 25, the same day that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice flies into theaters.
The rumor is coming from sources of ComicBook.com, but Netflix and Marvel haven't confirmed the news just yet. Daredevil's first season premiered on April 10, 2015 - so the second season would be arriving a little earlier. Most people seem to think this is a big problem for Warner Bros., as it will somehow stop people from going and seeing Batman v Superman, but I don't think that'll be an issue.
Netflix binges are enjoyed at home, on the train, or wherever you are - whereas Batman v Superman will be an event in itself, going to the theater to see something that has never happened before - Batman and Superman being featured in a movie together.
Batman v Superman is only three months away from its debut, with Entertainment Weekly getting its hands-on two new photos of the Batcave featured in the movie.
Ben Affleck is playing Bruce Wayne/Batman, with his new Batcave stocked to the walls with armor, weapons, cars, gadgets and more. This iteration of the Batcave is cemented in reality, with director Zack Snyder and his collaborators creating an entire line of next-gen technology and design choices that a billionaire would make.
Remember that Batman is long established in this world, so with a near unlimited budget, this is what he would do - especially given the 10-year-plus timeframe that Batman has been in the world for. Ben Affleck talked with EW, where he said: "[Batman] represents human beings, mortal men. In a world of Flashes and Aquamen and Supermen, there needs to be that guy. It's interesting that he became the leader of the Justice League in the books - I'm not sure how that'll play out here - but his humanity is also an asset".
Jeremy Irons, who plays Alfred, added: "Alfred is a lot more hands-on in our film than he has previously been. He's a bit of a grease monkey, and he's very involved in the decisions Bruce makes".
What was the most pirated movie of 2015? Interstellar. Christopher Nolan's space epic, according to the best estimates, was downloaded 46.7 million times.
Coming in second place was Furious 7 with 44.7 million downloads, and Avengers: Age of Ultron with 41.5 million. Excipio tracks BitTorrent downloads, noting that there were 36.8 million downloads of Jurassic World, and 36.4 million for Mad Max: Fury Road. Here's the full list and their exact downloads:
These numbers wouldn't include downloads through VPNs, Usenet and other underground sources - so I'd expect these numbers to be quite conservative. Considering how Hollywood loves to bang on the 'piracy kills profits' drum, we have hundreds of millions of collective downloads here, yet Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the fastest movie to reach $1 billion, and before it Jurassic World make a Titanic amount of money.
Christopher Nolan is known for The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception and Interstellar - fictional stories, and for the first time in his career, he will be directing a movie on something that actually happened - the miracle of Dunkirk during World War II.
Variety reports that Nolan's new project will be about the miracle of Dunkirk, where 195,000 British soldiers and 145,000 French and Belgium soldiers were saved after they were trapped by Germans. Nolan's movie will focus on Operation Dynamo, and at the gritty details of how one of the most notable evacuations in history happened.
Nolan will reportedly be securing Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance - with Dunkirk being show on 65mm large format, and 65mm IMAX format.
The first shot of Michael Fassbender in the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie has been released by Entertainment Weekly, with Fassbender playing Callum Lynch.
Lynch is a character who doesn't appear in any of the Assassin's Creed games, but he acts like a kind of "cypher for all the time-traveling, first-person action in the games", reports EW. Fassbender however, didn't play any of the Assassin's Creed games before taking the role, only playing the games after he signed the dotted line.
Fassbender is currently in Spain filming the movie, where he said to EW: "I've played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character. We're striving to find something special. We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can. The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We're really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element. We're working hard to make this something special".
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens nearing $1 billion in worldwide box office revenue, we're hearing more about the making of Episode VII - more so, in November 2014 when it was dubbed 'The Force Awakens'.
The Force Awakens was actually called something completely different until that point, with Pablo Hidalgo, the Creative Executive for the Lucasfilm Story Group taking to Twitter to explain it. Hidalgo was tweeting with Jedi News editor Justin LaSalata, saying that The Force Awakens had an alternate title.
Hidalgo said that "for a while" Episode VII was referred to as "Shadow of the Empire". Shadow of the Empire is close to the written novel from Steve Perry titled "Shadows of the Empire", which took place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, featuring the iconic trilogy characters, including Darth Vader.
