Justice League

Justice League‘s disappointing turn out at the box office last weekend could give way to a huge financial blow to Warner Bros. Normally, a film that grossed $94 million would be a cause for celebration. But when you factor in the cost of production and promotional material, a low $94 million is not even enough to cover a fraction of the overall film. In fact, Justice League is already lined up to becoming the lowest grossing DCEU film since the universe was launched back in 2013.

These low numbers could have a negative impact on the future of the DCEU has a whole. More on the story below.

Justice League Banner

Justice League

Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon

Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 120
Release Date: November 22, 2017

It’s easy to go into watching Justice League with very low expectations considering how the entire DCEU is filled with bad to god-awful films, with the exception of Wonder Woman. That film was a huge step forward in the right direction for the superhero universe, as it used themes of hope and optimism to do some course correction.

But with Justice League looking like it did in the trailers, one would think that the film would be a step back. However, that isn’t the case. While it is flawed, Justice League has a lighter tone, is funnier, and isn’t as bleak as some of its predecessors. That being said, it is a DCEU film. But at least it is a DCEU film that takes another step in the right direction. Check out my full review below.

‘Justice League’: Get To Know Aquaman, Cyborg, and Danny Elfman’s Music

Justice League

Justice League won’t have the standard build-up to the team-up we’ve all be expecting. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman were already introduced in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Wonder Woman, but Justice League will be the first time that we will be seeing Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash. Of course, we can find out all about these characters through a simple internet search, but the film will probably interpret their origins differently. So, through a series of promotional videos, we will learn about the heroes that make up the Justice League in the weeks leading up to the film’s release.

Also, since Danny Elfman will be composing the score for Justice League, you can hear a sample of his music below.

Justice League Banner

Justice League is only a few more weeks away from being released, and the anticipation is high for the DC superhero ensemble. Of course, the DCEU does have somewhat of a stigma with most of the films being flat out bad. This year’s Wonder Woman put an end to that streak, and it looks like Justice League can continue that turnaround.

Reports are estimating that the film could have a $110 million-plus opening weekend, which would be fairly impressive for a franchise that seems to be just getting out of the hole it dug itself into. More on the story below.

‘Justice League’ Runtime Reportedly Won’t Be As Exhausting As You Think

Justice League

Zack Snyder films are near visual epics that could care less about the narrative. And that is okay for some. But they can be exhausting to watch if they have a very long runtime. While that may be true for most of his films, his departure from Justice League left many wondering if Joss Whedon, his replacement, will change anything.

Justice League

Featurettes are a nice piece of marketing material that goes behind the scenes of your favorite films. And for Justice League, we are getting a look at the newest superhero ensemble and the person that helped bring them all together.

In what will probably the first of many, this featurette takes a look at the dynamics between members of the team, their motivation, history, and more. While there is not a whole lot of new footage to look at, it’s great to see that the cast has some chemistry with each other. Because they’ll need that with all the mixed reactions the trailers have been getting. Check out the latest Justice League featurette below.

Movie Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Gets Lost In The Subplots

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, David Goyer
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 151 Minutes
Release Date: March 25, 2016

When there is a film as hyped as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you expect a fight between the two heroes that resembles an epic title card match that you paid good money to watch. So you go in, feeling excited about a fight between two of “The World’s Finest.” It will be a match for the ages. Two heroes with different ideologies on what it means to be heroes. As impressive as a movie about a fight between two iconic comic book characters sounds, this one that doesn’t live up to the hype thanks in part to sloppy editing, a poor script, and a director with an absolute disrespect for the characters.

Sure, a movie like its predecessor Man of Steel isn’t perfect, and no film is. But it can be considered the prologue to a film that will set the foundation to the DC Expanded Universe. But what took Marvel years to set up, DC is attempting to do in just two films. It’s an admirable attempt at trying to create a shared universe like their competitors did, but the moment you step foot into this world, you start to get lost in a convoluted mess.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Movie Review

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Director: Zack Snyder
Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, David Goyer
Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 151 Minutes
Release Date: March 25, 2016

“What have you done?”

You know those combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell fast food places where you can get a Pepperoni Lover’s® Personal Pan Pizza and a Doritos® Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Mountain Dew Baja Blast®? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is kind of like that, except the pizza is a soggy, overloaded sadness pie and the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is deep-fried in sweat and dread. So, your standard Taco Bell experience I guess.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Watchmen), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is both deadly serious and aggressively silly. It’s a heavy-handed treatise on post-9/11 America written on a Quesalupa wrapper; a soliloquy on sacrificing freedoms for the illusion of security, delivered by a GameStop manager between trade-ins of LEGO Batman 3.

Don’t get me wrong: A movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman could be compelling, but that isn’t this movie. There are no heroes in this movie, only violent psychopaths trying to one-up each other in the “right-wing nutjob” department. This isn’t a battle of ideologies; it’s a war for bragging rights. These guys aren’t fighting for justice – they’re gunning for the highest body count.

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Trailer Doomsday

2016 will see two movies about two legendary heroes at odds and forced to fight each other by some outside force. It’s a bit perplexing as to why WB didn’t release the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during their Flash and Arrow annual crossover episode and decided to debut the trailer during Jimmy Kimmel Live, which airs on ABC, a Disney owned network, but I digress. The fact of the matter is, we are getting a new trailer for Dawn of Justice, and after a lackluster teaser, and a fairly descent Comic-Con trailer, this latest one will surely have comic book fans (yes even the Marvel ones) excited for this one.

Check out the latest trailer for the film below.
