Adam West, Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck are among the actors who have taken on the mantle of Bruce Wayne/Batman, and now the Caped Crusader is off to another adventure with Justice League.

This film has been a long time coming, as this super group serves as the anchor of the DC Comics universe. Batman (Affleck), fearing a threat that could be even more dangerous than his recent run-in with Doomsday, creates the Justice League with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller). Although he’s not part of the official movie poster, Superman is also a big part of the Justice League, and it will be interesting to see how this film incorporates him into the narrative.

Although Batman’s vigilante tendencies is one of his most intriguing facets, the gadgets and vehicles at his arsenal also grab its share of attention. Click on the media bar below to hear Affleck discuss the “tricked out” Batmobile in Justice League.



Justice League opens nationwide November 17.

THE POST

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on acclaimed projects that have spotlighted various facets of U.S. history (most recently with 2015’s Bridge of Spies), and now they’re back to spotlight the Washington Post’s battle to publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971. This film, which will probably make a wonderful bookend to the cinematic classic All The President’s Men, features Tom Hanks as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep as the newspaper’s publisher Katharine Graham.

The trailer spotlights the various pressures Graham and the newspaper faced, as holding the U.S. government accountable may have seriously crippled or ended the Washington Post. Movies like Spotlight, State of Play, and hopefully The Post focus on the continuing importance of solid journalism, and it’s a safe bet that this movie will be remembered come Oscar nominations time. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!


The Post, co-starring Bradley Whitford and Sarah Paulson, hits theaters December 22.

thor-ragnarokIt’s been well-documented that the first two standalone Thor movies left a lot to be desired. Fans weren’t impressed, and the box office numbers were disappointing. Everyone involved with the movies knew that changes would have to be made if the series was to survive. Well, it worked. Thor: Ragnarok has been getting the best reviews we’ve seen for a Marvel movie in years, and the fans have responded in a positive way, giving the movie an opening weekend nearly $40 million better than the last Thor film. Some of the changes made to the movie happened behind the scenes, but one of the biggest changes was pretty obvious — although it’s still Chris Hemsworth playing the character, he looks a lot different in the new movie, and he told us why they made those changes.

Thor: Ragnarok, which is already closing in on $500 million in worldwide box office totals, is playing now in theaters everywhere.

As Hollywood has proven time and time again, sometimes a new spin is all that’s needed to revive an old idea. The Archie comics are more than 70 years old, yet The CW is having great success with Riverdale, a drama series based on Archie Andrews and his friends in their seemingly perfect small town. With over seven decades’ worth of canon to work with, the show has a lot of options for developing its stories and its characters. For example, there have been several different versions of the character Jughead through the years, and we talked to Cole Sprouse — the actor who plays him on Riverdale– to find out which version he’s trying to channel in his performance. (Click on the media bar below to hear Cole Sprouse)

Riverdale airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.

As evidenced with the critically acclaimed In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, filmmaker Martin McDonagh knows how to find humor amidst tragedy. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri centers on a mother (Frances McDormand) who is attempting to find justice for her murdered daughter. Under different hands, this story would be a straight ahead drama, but McDonagh has other plans.

“Well because it sort of starts off in such a sad place I didn’t want to stay or dwell in that place for too long,” said McDonagh. “My natural metier as they say in France is to try and find some kind of humor in most situations. Not to stay in the darkness but to try and find something a little bit lighter than that.”

It wouldn’t have been funny if Frances McDormand rejected the part, as she was McDonagh’s first and presumably only choice for the part. Click on the media bar below to hear McDonagh talk about casting McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.


Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri opens in select theaters on Friday, November 10.

NUP_179682_3212.jpgWhen a brand-new TV show becomes an immediate hit with both viewers and critics alike, the pressure to live up to expectations can be overwhelming. In fact, it’s stopped some promising shows dead in their tracks. However, that hasn’t been the case with This Is Us. In its sophomore year, NBC’s hit family drama has a lot of fans and critics raving that the new season is even better than the first! While the show’s writing and acting have certainly contributed to its continued success, Justin Hartley — who plays Kevin Pearson on the show — says there’s a deeper, more fundamental reason for its success. He says the very premise of This Is Us — an interesting, realistic family dealing with interesting, realistic situations — is one that’s built to last, and one that can appeal to all walks of life. (Click on the media bar below to hear Justin Hartley)

This Is Us airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on NBC.

With Wonder Woman being one of the year’s biggest and best-received movies, fans can’t wait to see Gal Gadot play the character again in the Justice League movie opening later this month. Because of her inclusion in the DC universe, this is Wonder Woman’s third appearance in the last two years, and three more films featuring the character — including 2019’s Wonder Woman 2 – are already in development. There’s clearly a clamoring for more Wonder Woman content; Gadot thinks it’s because, in a genre where all of the stars have superhuman qualities, her character dares to also acknowledge her very human qualities. (Click on the media bar below to hear Gal Gadot)

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.

While Hollywood has had plenty of negative publicity lately for its treatment of women, many of the actresses working in TV today are trying to change society’s perception of women by playing characters that serve as strong role models for young females. Candice Patton plays Iris West on The Flash, and she’s thrilled that in the show’s fourth season, her character has grown into having a leadership position within Team Flash. (Click on the on the media bar below to hear Candice Patton)

The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
