Leto Joker

Or perhaps a Moonie, maybe even a preacher on TV! Whatever your opinion might be on Suicide Squad‘s new Joker (portrayed by Jared Leto), the supervillain has made an impression on everyone who’s watched the trailers or even slightly kept up with the hype surrounding DC‘s upcoming all-supervillain movie. But how is the actor keeping up with the flamboyant psychopath that is Batman‘s archnemesis?

According to director David Ayer, better than expected apparently…

If you’re a fan of The NeverEnding Story, then you’ve dreamed of riding Falkor, the luck dragon. Knowing a number of hardcore The NeverEnding Story fans, one might think this NerdBastard would have know that one can ride the actual Falkor from the first film at Bavaria Films in Munich, Germany. Somehow that never came up, or they just didn’t know about it, until now. (more…)

You may not have heard, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a monster success. This past weekend, it added just over $10 million to the bank for a third place finish at the box office, which is far from the $247 million it opened with, but good enough that the film could make another significant step closer to a massive milestone. It’s already got several box office records in the books, but now, Star Wars is about to enter a plateau only previously enjoyed by James Cameron. Twice. For it’s worldwide box office take, The Force Awakens is on the verge of being a multi-billionaire. (more…)

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

For die hard fans of any alternate, imaginary universe, there is no acceptable number of installments for those stories, except for infinity. And infinity isn’t a number so much as an impossibly abstract concept, so there is no acceptable number of installments. This is as true for Harry Potter as it is for Marvel or Star Wars or My Little Pony (don’t judge). That’s why, when it was announced back in 2013 that another story set in the Harry Potter universe was set to hit the big screen, there was a worldwide plethora of pants that required changing. That movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, wil hit theaters in November and is the first screenplay written by Harry Potter scribe herself, J. K. Rowling! Now, there is finally some footage from this greatly anticipated movie. Check it out below!

Deadpool fever is reaching maximum engagement right now, with the movie’s release less than two weeks away.  Star Ryan Reynolds has been releasing several hilarious videos over the last few months, breaking the “fourth wall” and having Deadpool chat directly with the audience about a variety of topics.  Recently, though, Deadpool’s creative team has been using the character and his snarky attitude as a force for good, via funny-yet-serious public service announcements.  The newest entry into the series tackles a serious subject in a very Deadpool-y way: it’s a breast cancer PSA.

Captain America: Civil War features one of the largest assembly of superheroes in one movie, who are in an all-out war with each other. The worlds do-gooders are forced to choose sides and go toe-to-toe with one another due to a series of disagreements, skirmishes, and political pressures. You’d think a movie with no less that 15 some heroes (some even making their big-screen debut) and a whole lot of escalated drama, that there would be every kind of catalyst for a movie like Civil War to be too big for its breaches.  I mean, if past superhero sequels like Spider-Man and Batman have been any indication, more characters and more drama a good superhero movie does not make.

Conventional wisdom, of course, does not apply to Marvel. Against any shred of doubt, Captain America: Civil War  not only continues to generate positive buzz, but it’s also (supposedly) testing exceedingly well with some early audiences.  (more…)

The Deadpool marketing continues to triumph. When we’re not seeing emoji billboards spelling out Skull Poop L, or hearing Deadpool celebrate Australia day by making fun of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine,  it’s important to remember there is an actual movie coming out. Whether or not Deadpool turns out to be a great movie or not, well, remains to be seen. To remind everyone that this film will indeed deliver on all the swearing, violence, and crude humor that has been promised, FOX (who’ve taken quick break from all the genius meta marketing) have released an actual clip from the movie.

The one-minute clip was released on Twitter and features Deadpool, Colossus, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead as they head into battle; it’s hilarious titled “2 Girls. 1 Punch”. (more…)

If you’re a Deadpool fan living in the Big Apple then we’ve got a special treat to tell you about. If you don’t, like this Southern NerdBastard, then we’ve got a special treat to tease you about. Mike’s Harder Lemonade is sponsoring a Deadpool Beauty Pageant & early screening of Tim Miller‘s Deadpool. That’s right, not only can you strut your stuff down the runway, afterwards you can enjoy the superhero movie that is breaking all the rules a full four days before all your friends. Think of the torture you can inflict on those poor unfortunates that don’t get in. (more…)
