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!

If You Haven’t Seen The Trailer For Jill Soloway-Produced ‘The Skinny’ Yet, It’s Time.

The Skinny

From the producer of Transparent, Jill Soloway, comes a web series created by comedian Jessie Kahnweiler, and it looks freaking dopppppe. Jessie plays Jessie, an aspiring YouTube star, a feminist, and a bulimic. The trailer portrays Jessie as the kind of gal who takes our anxieties out, rather than keeping them in. You’ll see what I mean while watching her crazy antics in the trailer. She’s definitely outspoken, and it’s pretty awesome. 

“I’m so sick of asking chubby white men with fucking man buns for permission to be myself,” she shouts at two dudes in the opening to the trailer. This may be the best opening ever, and a truth rarely told. More »

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

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.

Madonna Put Jack White On The Spot At Her Own Concert, And It’s Kind Of Hilarious

Madonna and Jack White

So Madonna was performing in Nashville last night, when she noticed one of the city’s finest in the crowd, Jack White. Apparently while everyone was dancing and singing along, the former The White Stripes frontman was too cool for school.  Madonna definitely noticed, and she took it upon herself to call the man out, in front of an entire concert hall. Jack looked super uncomfortable too, as he probably wasn’t trying to call too much attention to himself. Well I guess that wasn’t going to work out, because he was blasted on the teleprompter for all to see. More »

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

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!
