Production on Justice League is still underway in London, and star Ben Affleck has apparently revealed a major spoiler for the film. We already know that Steppenwolf will be the primary villain of the upcoming superhero team-up, but it looks like he won’t be the only once menacing Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the team.
Last week, we brought you a new batch of images from HBO’s upcoming original series Westworld, inspired by the 1973 sci-fi classic directed by Michael Crichton. And just in case those photos weren’t enough to whet your appetite, the network has just offered up a brand new trailer for the series.
After a second season finale that marked a major victory for our heroes while also serving up the loss of one of its most significant characters, FX’s brooding, blood-soaked vampire drama The Strain returns to the airwaves tonight, kicking off a 10-episode third season that promises to streamline the storytelling – a welcome change, as too much of Season 2 felt like treading water.
Earlier this year, I attended the Sundance Film Festival for the very first time, and one of the films I was most looking forward to was Morris From America. But with so many films to cram into such a small window – I was only in Park City for the festival’s opening weekend – there were a number of conflicts to schedule around, and Morris From America was one of the unfortunate casualties. Seven months later, writer-director Chad Hartigan’s brilliantly conceived coming-of-age tale is finally making its way to theaters and VOD, and I’m happy to report that it was worth the wait.…
Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast is one of my most anticipated releases of next year, and ever since attending the D23 Expo and getting an oh-so-brief glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle, I’ve been anxiously awaiting even the tiniest bit of new information. The teaser trailer that debuted earlier this year promised a lush, vibrant reimagining of the Beast’s castle and its inhabitants, and today brings our first look at two of the original film’s most recognizable characters.
The rags-to-riches story of legendary Panamanian pugilist Robert Duran has always been ripe for a Hollywood sports drama, and it finally arrives this week in the form of Hands of Stone – named for the fighter’s real-life sobriquet, which he earned by mercilessly pummeling his opponents over the course of his four-decade career. But despite the compelling nature of Duran’s rise to boxing royalty, director Jonathan Jakubowicz (who also wrote the screenplay) fails to deliver a film worthy of sharing Manos de Piedra’s moniker.

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Blu-ray I reviewed in this post. The opinions I share are my own.* DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was definitely a wildcard going into the 2015 television season with its eclectic team of non-household name heroes and villains from the expanding DC Comics television universe on The CW. Season 1 ended up being quite a bumpy ride, but the highs outshone the lows in a series that never apologized for pushing the comic book limits of television.
