Netflix has released an official trailer for Klaus, an upcoming animated holiday season movie.
The movie stars J.K. Simmons, Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones, Joan Cusack, Will Sasso, and Norm Macdonald, and tells the origin story of Santa Claus. You can find more info on it and give the trailer a watch below.
Though San Diego Comic-Con is reserved for mostly geeky things and nostalgia, sometimes, they like to throw a curveball or two. Take for instance, the Russo Brothers panel. Now, their panel could have been the two just reminiscing about their days toiling and perfecting the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While that was the case for a good portion of the panel, they also talked about some of the other projects they are working on, which includes a gritty police crime drama called 21 Bridges.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) as a NY detective who comes across a crime between two drug dealers and dirty cops. What will he do to get to the truth of it all? Shut down all exits and entrances, even if that means bridges, subways, and more? Check out the trailer for 21 Bridges below.
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 Director: Zack Snyder Screenwriter: Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, CiarÃ¡n Hinds 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 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 Elfmanwill be composing the score for Justice League, you can hear a sample of his music below.
