For a few months now, small nuggets of news have been dropped ever so quietly about the still untitled Christopher Nolan directed film. However, Robert Pattinson, just spoke about his experience reading the script, and it’s enough to get you amped for the new Nolan film.
Pattinson has been on a press tour this past week promoting his upcoming Sci-Fi film High Life, directed by acclaimed French director Claire Denis. And it is in this press tour that Pattinson told USA Today that he was “locked in a room” and got to read the script, and found it to be “unreal.”
Here is his full quote:
“I got locked in a room to read the script – I don’t have it myself…. I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff. He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has huge scale. I read the script and it’s unreal.”
Kevin Tsujihara, Warner Bros. CEO for six years, has stepped down as chairman. His move to step down as leader for the movie studio comes after a story broke in The Hollywood Reporter last week alleging that Tsujihara was involved with actress Charlotte Kirk in exchange for movie auditions and roles.
Tsujihara did publicly apologize for his conduct, however it is unbecoming of a CEO to operate in this way. If he had not stepped down he would have been forced out by higher powers.
WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey said on Monday regarding Tsujihara’s departure:
“It is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners for Kevin to step down as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Kevin has contributed greatly to the studio’s success over the past 25 years and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the Company’s leadership expectations and could impact the Company’s ability to execute going forward.”
A second trailer has dropped for the Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment film Pokémon: Detective Pikachuand you know, it still looks surprisingly good. The first trailer dropped back in November to rave success and it is no surprise that just after being out for one day this new trailer is tracking the same.
This new trailer features more of Justice Smith in the leading role and Ryan Reynold‘s voice. And it is displayed brilliantly. With the entire trailer set to the adrenaline-pumping classic “I Need A Hero” by Bonnie Tyler. They pack as many Pokémon references as they can to get every fan of the massive franchise excited for the upcoming film, and it is working. Including the addition of one very famous legendary Pokémon. Who’s that Pokémon?
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu opens in theater May 10th!
What did you think of the trailer? Are you looking forward to the movie, why or why not? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion out of it.
If you were a fan of the first Wonder Woman then you’ll unfortunately have to wait a little longer before you can see the sequel to the hit 2017 super hero film.
Wonder Woman 1984 will now open June 5th of 2020, putting the film in the same general area that the first movie opened in to great success. The movie was first set to open next year, November 1st 2019. However, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, tweeted the news on Monday of the change.
Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!
Warner Bro.’s president of domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, said in a statement moments after the tweet went out:
“We had tremendous success releasing the first Wonder Woman film during the summer, so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
Wonder Woman 1984 reunites Gadot with previous Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, and co-star Chris Pine, with Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig joining the franchise. The 2017 film broke many records grossing more than $412 million in North America and $821.8 million globally.
Lately, there has been pretty much nothing but setbacks in regards to the DC superhero universe. And while a movie moving back its release date is normally a sign of trouble, this seems genuine. The film did so well in the same spot in 2017 that it only makes sense to release the sequel in the same area. Don’t fix what isn’t broken.
What do you think of this move? Is it a sign of weakness, or a sign of confidence? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion out of it.
Also, I have an announcement that I made regarding a Podcast that I am building. Click here to see the details.
A first look trailer for the James Wan produced film, The Curse of La Llorona, has hit the web and once again shows that anything that Wan touches will haunt your nightmares.
Wan is responsible for such terrifying horror franchises as The Conjuring and Insidious. Now he brings us the story of La Llorona, a crying woman who lives between heaven and hell – cursed by her own hand when she drowned her two kids. The film is directed by Michael Chaves, who Wan has picked to direct The Conjuring 3, so this proves that the horror director/producer has a lot of faith in Chaves’ capability in directing horror.
The Curse of La Llorona stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Valasquez, Marisol Ramirez, and Sean Patrick Thomas. The film is set for a release date of April 19, 2019. Expect to be terrified.

Get ready fans of Tom and Jerry, as well as Scooby-Doo, you got movies coming!
According to an article published in Variety, Warner Bros. are in negotiations with director Tim Story to direct a new Tom and Jerry live-action/animated hybrid film, as well as talking to Chris Columbus to be the creative producer on a new Scooby-Doo animated movie.
This announcement comes on the heels of Warner Bros. announcing that they are aiming for a balance of animate movies as well as live-action hybrids.
Tom and Jerry is expected to start shooting in 2019. The plan is to shoot in the real world with an animated version of Tom and Jerry interreacting with real people. This sounds like it could be in the very same vein of Who Framed Roger Rabbit or Space Jam. Sources have also told Variety that, staying true to the characters of Tom and Jerry, they will not talk and will continue to rely on physical comedy as they have been since their inception in 1940.
As far as Scooby-Doo, the fully animated movie is full steam ahead with an expected release date in the first quarter of 2020. At the moment there is no casting announcement for the voices for the meddling kids, but expect one soon.
What do you think of this announcement? Are you a fan of any of these properties? And do you think these movies can work? Leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts. Lets make a discussion about it.
Warner Bro. dropped a bombshell today in the form of a “trailer” that is over 5 minutes long! This is has got to be one of the longest trailers ever put out for a blockbuster movie.
This trailer manages to cram in five minutes of footage yet accomplishes something that a lot of trailers can’t do in less time – it didn’t ruin the whole movie. Impressive.
If a trailer’s duty is to get an audience excited for a movie then DC and Warner Bros have successfully done just that. Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman is the same character seen in the last Justice League movie, and is all the better for it. Alongside Momoa is Amber Heard as Mera, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, and Patrick Wilson as Orm.
This trailer is awesome, the visuals look stunning, and the action is epic. JamesWan seems to have been the magical touch needed for this character. If this is DC’s best step forward then it’s a damn good step.
What did you think of the trailer? Have you been looking forward to Aquaman? Are you looking forward to it now? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion out of it.
Its been just over two years since the Suicide Squad movie hit theaters back in August of 2016, and the landscape at Warner Bros. has changed a lot since then. With announcements of movie cancellations, “mustache gate,” the constant revolving door of directors coming and going off TheFlash, and the still constant questioning on if we have a Batman or not – it has been really iffy on if we would actually get a Suicide Squad 2. However, it looks like there might actually be some movement on the project.
Todd Stashwick, the co-writer on Suicide Squad 2, recently said in an interview with Discussing Film:
We have finished our draft and I’m really proud of it… It’s a sequel to the first film. Again, I can’t say anything else. Our intention is to tell an exciting story, deepening these characters.”
The key quote here is “We have finished our draft.” They have turned in an actual script. This is something that a lot of people, including myself, never thought would happen.
At this time, there are three movies that DC fans can look forward to, Aquaman,Shazam!, and Wonder Woman 1984. It is safe to assume that if these movies are a success then the script for Suicide Squad 2 will be greenlit and production will start very soon. However, if they fail at the box office or critically, then this may be the last bit of news we get on a new Suicide Squad movie.
Something we haven’t heard a lot about lately from Warner Bros. is their plans to make a Man of Steel sequel. While one was announced a few months back, there is still no release date and still no casting news or plot details. After what seems like months of no talk at all, the silence has been broken.
Per a report put out by Collider, Mathew Vaughn is currently the studio’s top choice to direct Man of Steel 2, and preliminary conversations about Vaughn’s directing positions have taken place. If you are not familiar with the director, his best-known work is directing critically successful, action packed movies like Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, and Kick-Ass.
The report is quick to point out that Vaughn is not yet signed on as the director, and could very well end up not directing the project. However, Warner Bros. is still showing interest in Vaughn and will probably want him to helm other superhero movies tied to the DC movie universe should he not end up the director of the Man of Steel sequel.

Over the past several weeks there has been nothing but dreary news coming from Warner Bro. concerning their DC Universe. However, finally, this weekend has given way to some positivity!
A new trailer and poster for DC’s Wonder Woman has hit the web, showing off the Princess of the Amazon warriors, Diana, training on Themyscira. Check out the trailer and Poster below!
In previous trailers, we have seen Diana taking part in World War One, however this new trailer shows more of her training and honing her powers. In just this one trailer we see her as a young girl learning about her history, discovering her powers, and then her journey to London in order to save the world. This film is directed by Patty Jenkins, and stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor who, in the comics, is Diana’s love interest.
This past Friday Jenkins unveiled the new poster for Wonder Woman for the film via her twitter account:
Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters this year on June 2nd, 2017.
While things lately have seen down for the DC Movie Universe, I have never given up hope that Patty Jenkins will give us a great Wonder Woman movie. And after seeing this trailer, I am very much looking forward to it.
