To paraphrase the author E.A. Bucchianeri:
“You can kill a superhero crossover movie quicker by your silence than by a bad review.”
Dawn Of Justice got a lot of good word of mouth going for it, with nerds praising it to high heaven after some early screenings, while stay-at-home critics in Rotten Tomatoes gave it a series of scathing reviews and a solid 33% score, very eloquently calling the film:
“a grim whirlwind of effects-driven action”
But we guess that the internet talks while box office walks, especially considering the massive success of the film this opening weekend…
The charity website Omaze has done some, pardon the pun, pretty o-mazing things with Hollywood over the last few years in their drive for giving back to both individual communities and the global environment. The group has recently started working with the stars of the upcoming film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to not only raise money for a good cause, but also to give fans a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime experience. (more…)
Jimmy Kimmel took Oscar night to a new level with guest Ben Affleck promoting Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Affleck brought the sad news that Kimmel’s cameo in BvS had been deleted and might never been seen. He decided to soften the blow by bringing that deleted clip and trying to bury the hatchet between Kimmel and Matt Damon. Check out how it all turned out in the videos below. (more…)
Finally a Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer that makes the 8-year-old nerd inside of all of us giggle with glee. The trailer that finally proves that it’s all about the Bat, or at least all the really “Holy Crap” moments of this trailer. That’s the only warning you’re gonna get, be careful that you don’t holler out a couple of “Holy Craps!!!” while watching this trailer in your cubicle. You’re boss might not be as amused as we are.

Though the majority of the world’s current cinematic fervor seems to be directed at the latest iteration of Star Wars (the stunning new trailer didn’t hurt) comic lovers are rejoicing thanks to a new crop of photos and a few juicy plot points from the beginning of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film, slated to release in 2016, marks the start of DC Comics’ push to compete with the all-encompassing Marvel Cinematic Universe. (more…)
Nerds, geeks, super-fans – whatever you’d like to call us, one thing is for sure: there’s going to be a lot of cool stuff for genre fans to check out on TV this Fall. Information on most of the new (and returning) projects has been moderately available, and it’s always nice when the studios themselves offer up direct access for the fans. In advance of the new Supergirl TV series coming to prime-time on CBS this Fall, the network has released a 3-minute behind-the-scenes featurette designed to give fans some advance info on the new caped crusader in town.
It seems like the perfect combination: take the guy who directed Snatch, Sherlock Holmes (the Robert Downey Jr. versions), and RocknRolla, and let him make a spy movie that stars Superman and The Lone Ranger. Oh, and set it in the 1960s, where men were men and you had to rely on your wits and your talent instead of letting technology do your dirty work. Sounds pretty badass, right? Well, movie-goer, you’re in luck – because The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an amazingly-cool movie that’s fun to watch and easy to enjoy.
Empire Magazine recently debuted the cover of its upcoming September 2015 issue, featuring the likes of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel as they’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The photos give us a better look at The Dark Knight, Supes and a rather hip looking Lex Luthor. (more…)
The last time I paid $10.00 for a magazine, Olivia Munn was naked in it. Empire Magazine asking that same absorbent price for its September 2015 issue would normally be the equivalent of using a $10.00 bill as toilet paper, but this issue features Batman and Superman on the cover. Paying $10.00 for a magazine in this internet age is still dumb, but any time super heroes grace the cover of a popular national mag, it does stand as victory of nerd cultures dominance over society.
This upcoming issues of Empire Magazine gives us another head-on look at Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel as they’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. (more…)
Warner Bros. Hall H Panel has released a new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that will quite literally knock your damn socks off.
