First Look at ‘Wonder Woman’ Shows She’s All Kinds Of Badass

Who is this Amazon princess?

DC Comics released a sneak peek of the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, and it makes me want to grab my shield, jump on a horse and wield my sword. Okay, not exactly, but I am intrigued on seeing this Wonder Woman flick, starring the kickass Gal Gadot. Ever since Lynda Carter immortalized this Amazon princess warrior on TV in the ’70s, it’s been quite a journey bringing a big-screen Wonder Woman to life, with many starts and stops. But DC Comics finally got their act together and set up a plan to release a whole slate of movies revolving around their Justice League superheroes, including Wonder Woman, whose mortal name is Diana Prince. In the film, we’ll see her come of age and question why her mythological race of warrior women gave up on their mission to protect humans. We also get a glimpse of Col. Steve Trevor, played by cutie Chris Pine, Wonder Woman’s love interest, as she ventures into our world, circa WWI. Watch the first look above! Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters June 23, 2017.

Jennifer Lawrence Set To Play Fidel Castro’s Lover In New Film ‘Marita’

Jennifer Lawrence has landed another major film role! It seems as though she will soon as another biopic role in to her (already) amazing resume. She is set to play Fidel Castro’s lover in the forthcoming Marita, according to The Hollywood Reporter. If there’s anyone who can tackle a crazy love story like this, it’s definitely J. Law. She will reportedly play Marita Lorenz, a woman who had an affair with the Cuban dictator as a 19-year-old in 1959, only to be sent back to Cuba on a mission to assassinate him one year later. Is it too early to say we smell an Oscar win for Jennifer for this role?

The New ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer Is Here And It Looks Ridiculously Good

"We're the bad guys...it's what we do"

The new Suicide Squad trailer is insane in every sense of the word! Late last night, Warner Bros. unveiled the first official teaser for the upcoming anti-hero movie, and we literally can’t wait for more. The trailer gives all of us a glimpse at what happens when you round up the world’s biggest villains for a suicide mission. Absolute mayhem! What makes it even better? They’re all kicking ass to the soundtrack of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The whole gang — including Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Enchantress, the Joker, and more — appears in the video ready to take on the world one last time. “This is the deal. You’re going somewhere very bad to do something that will get you killed,” a voiceover says as the villains attack people and destroy cities. Watch the video above — it’ll get you even more excited than you already are for the film’s release in August!

New ‘Dawn of the Justice League’ Poster Art Shows Whole Gang For The First Time

And what a fearsome crew it 'tis!

We’ve all seen plenty of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) – but they only make up half of DC Comics’ legendary Justice League. Now, DC Comics has presented a new poster of the entire Justice League on their Facebook page that includes Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller). This is only artwork, so it just gives a hint of how these characters will look, but I’m certainly impressed with the badassery. The poster is also promoting the TV special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, which airs tonight at 9:30 on The CW.

Pee-wee Is Back! And Ready For A ‘Big Holiday’! [Cue Pee-wee's Laugh]

I know you are but what am I?

What fun! Paul Reubens is bringing his iconic man-child Pee-wee Herman back for another adventure in the upcoming Netflix original movie, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. I loved the 1985 cult classic Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, directed by the then relatively unknown Tim Burton. It was incredibly quirky, silly and fabulous. Reubens had created this character while doing improvisation with The Groundlings, and after the film, and the subsequent hit Saturday morning kids show Pee-wee’s Playhouse (which I didn’t watch but know it was way ahead of its time), the actor stayed in character for all public appearances. Reubens eventually got burnt out playing the character and then arrested for indecent exposure at an adult theater, so you know, that seemed like the end of Pee-wee.

‘Neighbors 2′ Trailer: Zac Efron, Seth Rogen Take On The Girls Next Door

Zac and Seth take on the girls...

They’re backkkkkk! In the first trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, trouble maker Chloë Grace Moretz comes to town and decides to start her own sorority since Selena Gomez‘s doesn’t allow any partying to be done. Of course, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are still living next door and are not happy with this new breed of sorority. Luckily, they have Teddy (Zac Efron) to help out. The debut trailer see the many attempts they all take in shutting down Kappa Nu — and yes some of them look as painful and hilarious as the first film. The best part though, is when Mac, Kelly, and Teddy give us all a lesson in spelling! Except they have no idea how to spell sorority. Watch the video above — it’ll get you excited for some shirtless scenes with Zac and…Seth!

Tim Curry Is Joining The ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Remake, Making It Totally Official

Tim Curry

It’s astounding…no, it really is. I couldn’t be happier that THE Tim Curry, you know, the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter, is joining Fox’s remake of  Rocky Horror Picture Show, because let’s be honest, it just wouldn’t be real with out him. While we already reported that Laverne Cox will be taking over Curry’s role (and you know she’ll kill it), Tim will be playing the narrator/criminologist, which just feels freaking perfect. In the movie Charles Gray played the role, but make way for Tim. More »

Watch: Yep, ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Is A Sequel AND The Trailer Is Quietly Freaky

Don't go outside.

J.J. Abrams, you sneaky bastard! The director/producer has been secretly producing a sequel to his 2008 surprise hit Cloverfield and didn’t tell anyone. Instead, according to Collider.com, 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg threw people off in 2014, saying he was directing a post-apocalyptic thriller called Valencia. Now, granted, 10 Cloverfield Lane could have been called Valencia at that time, but still, it’s sticking with Abrams’ M.O. about keeping his projects a secret. The first Cloverfield‘s marketing campaign was so shrouded in deep mystery, it’s why the film about a giant Godzilla-like monster attacking New York City did so well at the box office. Now, 10 Cloverfield Lane – which Abrams told Collider is a “blood relative” to the original – stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a woman who wakes up to find herself in a cellar with two strangers, played by John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and is told that there as been an apocalyptic nuclear fall-out and it’s not safe outside anymore. Um, the “not safe outside anymore” is correct, but the reasons are faaaar different, aren’t they? Watch the creepy trailer above and check out the movie when it attacks theaters March 11.

Oh Hell Yasss! Black Widow Totally Needs Her Own Movie

Let's make this happen.

I’ve always thought the Marvel character Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, played so perfectly by Scarlett Johansson, deserved a stand-alone movie. And after seeing the last Avengers movie, Age of Ultron, in which we see a glimpse of some of Natasha’s harsh assassin training, it made even more sense to give Black Widow her spotlight. Thankfully, I’m not alone in my assessment. Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are totally in favor of bringing Black Widow’s story to the big screen. Question is, are they hinting it’s in the works?

The First Trans Person In Over 30 Years Was Finally Nominated For An Oscar!

Antony Hegarty

And her name is Antony Hegarty. The singer for Antony and the Johnsons was nominated for Best Original Song, “Manta Ray,” which is from the documentary Racing Extinction. This is the second time a trans person has ever been nominated in the history of the Academy Awards. Before Antony, there was Angela Morley, a composer who transitioned in the early ’70s and was nominated for multiple scores that decade. But that’s basically an over thirty year gap. Let’s not forget that Mya Taylor and Kiki Rodriguez of Tangerine were completely snubbed, as was the movie entirely. So Antony’s nomination gives us some semblance of hope for the future of the most hyped awards show ever. More »
