What That 'Justice League' Post-Credits Scene Is Setting Up

5 hours ago

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Justice League.]

The final post-credit sequence for Justice League teases something at once both obvious and exciting for long-term comic book fans.

Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) has escaped from prison and meets with Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), suggesting that now that the good guys have a team, maybe the bad guys should think about doing the same thing, too.

This is, of course, hardly the most original idea in the world — Lex, you're supposed to be a genius! — so it should come as no surprise to discover that the Injustice Society of the World debuted in »

Jordan Peele and 'Get Out' Team Celebrate Fan-Inspired Art

6 hours ago

There has been a recent online debate about Get Out being positioned as a comedy at this year's Golden Globes with director Jordan Peele himself disputing this recognition. 

The man behind the film, which turns the lens on racial and social injustices, took to Twitter asking what was funny about the film and suggested that it's much more of a documentary.  On Friday night in Hollywood, however, one thing everyone could agree on is that his directorial debut is, in fact, art and this was evident when fans created their very own masterpieces based on images from the »

'What Haunts Us': Film Review

7 hours ago

A lament for scores of boys at a South Carolina school who were molested by a teacher, Paige Goldberg Tolmach's What Haunts Us is most moved by a part of the assault equation that isn't yet getting enough attention in our current focus on sex and harassment scandals: the number of bystanders who had suspicions (or more) about what was happening but did nothing to stop it. Though the debut film makes its share of storytelling missteps, its heartfelt message will surely connect with viewers, many of whom will likely remember teachers in their own schools who worked for years »

If the 'Justice League' Villain Confused You, This Will Help

8 hours ago

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Justice League]

Those leaving Justice League and wondering what Steppenwolf actually wanted, what the deal was with the Mother Boxes and what about that weird teleportation tube — it's okay. While the movie was less than forthcoming about the backstory of the villain beyond "He's a bad guy and he's doing bad stuff," there's a lot more information to be found in DC's comic book mythology, and it can help you understand some of the ambiguous stuff in the movie.

Steppenwolf first appeared in 1972's New Gods No. 7, a creation of legendary artist »

How 'Justice League' Rewrites DC's Cinematic Past

11 hours ago

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Justice League.]

Justice League is a movie that demands that its audience has seen Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in order to understand it, but hopes that its audience also doesn't really remember BvS all that well. Justice League sets the stage for a brighter DC cinematic universe by quietly rewriting the brief history of its own movies.

The most obvious shift is the core concept that drives Justice League as a whole: Superman's (Henry Cavill) death took hope away from the world, spiked fear and anxiety and activated the Mother Boxes, which feed »

How Sony Nabbed Quentin Tarantino's Manson Movie

14 hours ago

In the wake of the sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, his career-long collaborator Quentin Tarantino’s next movie became one of the hottest projects in years on Hollywood’s auction block.

Sony Pictures Entertainment made a high-powered presentation Nov. 8 that included chairman Tom Rothman, Columbia Pictures president Sanford Panitch and marketing president Josh Greenstein, but the studio had to wait on pins and needles for more than a week before learning it beat Warner Bros. and Paramount to land worldwide distribution rights to the film.

It’s a significant win for Sony given its currently anemic slate, but to acquire the project, »

Danny Elfman Hates When Reboots Scrap Classic Themes

14 hours ago

Composer Danny Elfman didn't have a lot of time to decide to step back into the world of DC with Justice League.

The film was in flux after director Zack Snyder stepped away in May following the death of his daughter, and filmmaker Joss Whedon was brought in to write additional scenes and oversee reshoots and post-production. Whedon made another change, ushering out Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice composer Antonius Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie Xl.

"I got the call from Joss very last second," Elfman tells Heat Vision. "I got the call and it was, ‘You have to decide »

Jessica Chastain, Martin Sheen and Barking Dog Turn Up to Honor Aaron Sorkin at AFI Fest Closing

17 November 2017 6:31 PM, PST

Just a few years ago, Aaron Sorkin found himself at his New York City apartment with his father the morning the Academy Award nominations were revealed. A film he had written was among the hopefuls, but it was not to be. Sorkin's father helped ease the sting by asking his son this question: How many people in the world do you think woke up this morning even with a reasonable expectation that they might get an Oscar nomination?

"That's when I discovered that for most people, it's an honor just to be nominated. In my family, it's an honor just to »

'Atomic Homefront': Film Review

17 November 2017 4:49 PM, PST

A calmly infuriating look at an environmental nightmare that will have many viewers wondering "why haven't I heard of this before?," Rebecca Cammisa's Atomic Homefront introduces the Missouri communities who claim the dubious honor of having some of the world's oldest atomic waste buried in their backyards. More straightforward and less muckraker-ish in tone than many similarly themed docs, the film lacks some of the cinematic punch that can help break through the noise of a thousand tales of governmental and corporate wrongdoing. But its dedicated interviewees make the subject's seriousness undeniable, and with luck, their cause will attract attention »
