Zack Snyder's Justice League gives HBO Max hope in the streaming wars

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Mar 29 2021 5:41 PM CDT

Zack Snyder's Justice League has made its huge debut on HBO Max, with parent company AT&T enjoying a huge surge in users as they flocked in to watch the original vision of Justice League from Zack Snyder.

WarnerMedia's streaming platform saw an 8.9% surge in users launching the HBO Max mobile app, while the HBO Max app itself had downloads skyrocket by 68% during the week that Zack Snyder's Justice League debuted. The only source on this right now is Bloomberg, where writer John J. Edwards III is wrong about the theatrical release of Justice League being Zack Snyder's "original 2017 cut" but "completed by a different director".

The theatrical release of Justice League was not Snyder's "original 2017 cut", it was a hacked-together Frankenstein mess that had almost nothing to do with Snyder after Whedon's extensive re-writes and re-shoots. It wasn't simply "completed" by another director, but that director made it into nearly a completely different movie.

Hulu drops new hilariously offensive Solar Opposites Season 2 trailer

Jak Connor | Tue, Mar 16 2021 2:35 AM CDT

Hulu is preparing to release the brand new season of its new hit animated show Solar Opposites and to kick things off, we have a new trailer to enjoy.

Solar Opposites is created by Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick and Morty. If you enjoy Rick and Morty, then there is no doubt that you will enjoy Solar Opposites as both of the shows are quite similar in terms of comedy. In the above trailer, we can see Korvo with his family of aliens attempting to get off Earth in their spaceship.

Before the launch, Korvo makes some offensive jokes about the current state of Earth. At the end of the trailer, we are shown the release date for season 2 of Solar Opposites, which will premier on Hulu on March 26th. If you are interested in reading more about Solar Opposites, or if you want to check out some more trailers for the show, visit this link here.

Check out this epic final trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League

Anthony Garreffa | Sun, Mar 14 2021 6:15 PM CDT

Zack Snyder's Justice League is nearly here with an epic final trailer for the movie released, fully unleashing the hype engines. Check it out:

Snyder tweeted out the final trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League with "The Time is Now. #ForAutumn", Autumn being his daughter that took her own life as he was finishing up Justice League. Warner Bros. removed him from the project as he needed time with his family and that didn't suit their schedule, they had Avengers director Joss Whedon step in and re-shoot Justice League into the theatrical mess it was.

It's a beautiful way to end this journey into the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League from the man himself, saying this is For Autumn. Many of the fans, myself included, have been with Zack throughout this entire journey. There have been large sums of money raised for suicide awareness because of it, with the Snyder family fully embracing the movement.

Disney+ flies past 100 million subscribers, achieved in just 16 months

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, Mar 10 2021 7:31 PM CST

It was only a month ago that I was reporting Disney+ had breached 95 million subscribers, but now we're already at 100 million subscribers and the future is looking very pretty for Disney's huge streaming service.

Disney+ flies past 100 million subscribers, achieved in just 16 months 09 | TweakTown.com

Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a press release: "The enormous success of Disney Plus ... has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high-quality content. In fact, we set a target of [more than] 100 new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic".

It should come as no surprise given the popularity of shows like The Mandalorian, the entire back catalogs of Star Wars, Pixar's entire library, the entire of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and a million-and-one other TV shows, movies, documentaries, sport and entertainment.

Is WB sabotaging Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max?

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Mar 8 2021 9:39 PM CST

Zack Snyder's Justice League is still 10 days away and yet the movie "accidentally" debuted on HBO Max when users searched and tried to stream 'Tom & Jerry'.

Streaming Tom & Jerry on HBO Max surprised viewers with an early viewing of Zack Snyder's Justice League, but what happened? HBO Max parent company WarnerMedia explained in a statement: "Zack Snyder's Justice League was temporarily available on HBO Max and the error was addressed within minutes".

The movie was then made available in various sources across the internet, but it took many hours before Warner Bros. responded and in the end Twitter sent takedown notices on behalf of Warner Bros. to Twitter users who were sharing screenshots from the leaked Zack Snyder's Justice League movie.

Here's all the Zack Snyder's Justice League teaser videos so far

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Mar 8 2021 5:45 PM CST

Zack Snyder's Justice League is less than 10 days away if you can believe it, with Snyder and HBO Max dropping individual character teases with seconds of new footage in each trailer. Check out the official trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League before that, and below I have the individual trailers and character posters.

The team have been slowly releasing character trailers leading into the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League on March 18 where it will debut and I'm sure break many records on HBO Max. We started with Batman, and went right into the beautiful black suit Superman, then Aquaman and The Flash and today Wonder Woman.

Zack Snyder has referred to Cyborg as "the heart" of the movie, so it's fitting that his individual video has been left until last. Every single video has given me goosebumps, I've literally cried in a couple of them with pure happiness and geeking out, but holy f***ing shit this is looking absolutely phenomenal.

  • You can read my breakdown and nerd out over the official trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League right here.

Hulu debuts Solar Opposites Season 2 trailer and release date

Jak Connor | Thu, Feb 25 2021 2:32 AM CST

The wait is finally over, Hulu has released the new trailer for the coming season of its hit show Solar Opposites.

If you are a fan of Rick and Morty and haven't check out Solar Opposites, you are missing out. Solar Opposites is basically like Rick and Morty but a little tamer when it comes to jokes and references. However, the creator of Solar Opposites is Justin Roiland, who also created Rick and Morty, and if you know anything about Roilands kind of humor, you can expect some pretty interesting jokes.

Above you will find the new trailer for season two, and you can see that the family of aliens gets up to quite a lot of mischief while trying to fit into society on Earth. According to the announcement, season two of Solar Opposites will be released exclusively on Hulu on March 26th. For more information on Solar Opposites, check out this link here.

The Halo TV series has hopped from Showtime over to Paramount Plus, and will go live on the small screen a few months after Halo: Infinite's launch. Paramount Plus includes CBS All Access and a plethora of content produced from other labels like Showtime.

Pablo Scrheier (Orange is the New Black) stars as Master Chief in the show, and the series will chronicle the adventures of Blue Team, a group of elite Spartan warriors in the Human-Covenant War. Showtime promises the show will be character driven and spin a dramatic and personal story

"It is a very different genre, it's futuristic, space-based science fiction, it's not fantasy. It took us a long time to get the script but we felt like we had something that was really interesting and felt like it belonged on Showtime in terms of its character depth, and it's gonna be a big show," Showtime CEO David Nevins said in 2018.

Listen to the first track from Zack Snyder's Justice League soundtrack

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, Feb 17 2021 12:59 AM CST

Can you believe it's barely a month until Zack Snyder's Justice League is streaming on HBO Max, and we see what Snyder's original vision of the movie would've been -- and some more. Well, now we can listen to some of the score from the movie, listen to this:

This is the track "The Crew at Warpower" from Zack Snyder's Justice League, with Junkie XL handling the score to the movie. Junkie XL or Tom Holkenborg, worked with Hans Zimmer on Snyder's previous movie in the DCEU with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

I've listened to it a few times before writing this post and I'm really enjoying what Junkie XL has here so far with his score to Zack Snyder's Justice League. The movie is a lengthy 4 hours long so it'll be interesting to see how long and how many tracks there are for the soundtrack for Zack Snyder's Justice League.
