The Batman Casting May Reveal Interesting Detail About Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon

The DC Extended Universe may have had a rocky takeoff, but Warner Bros. has hit its stride with the last few releases. Shazam! and Aquaman proved what the shared universe could do, while Joker was set outside of the DCEU and has earned a whopping 11 Oscar nominations. There’s some very exciting blockbusters coming down the line, with Birds of Prey and The Batman putting an emphasis on Gotham City. The latter movie will feature Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, and new casting information may have revealed a twist related to his character.

Anaconda Is Getting A Reboot, But Will It Include Jennifer Lopez?

And that’s probably a smart approach to take. While Anaconda wasn’t much of a hit with critics upon its release, it proved to be a surprise success at the box office. It followed a team of documentary filmmakers (J-Lo, Ice Cube, and Owen Wilson among them) as they battled both the killer snake and the hunter trying to capture it. These days, it more or less qualifies as a cult classic, thanks to its, um, creative use of CGI and an over the top performance from Jon Voight as the villainous anaconda hunter. And it’s spawned some pretty remarkable sequels, including Anacondas: Trail of Blood and the crossover film Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

9 Terrible Movies That Roger Ebert Loved

Junior (1994)

Granted, there aren’t many movies where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets pregnant. Nevertheless, Junior finds a way to take an extremely ludicrous premise and turn it into something that’s… well, weirdly serious. Not in a good way, either. While I’ve, admittedly, got a bit of a soft spot for it, Junior didn’t reach its potential. Despite Schwarzenegger’s commitment, along with another fun turn from Danny DeVito as his maternal doctor, Junior is, frankly, oddly dull. You would think such a ridiculous premise would produce bountiful results, especially from director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters ’84, Animal House). Nevertheless, Junior is a missed opportunity, and an uninspired body comedy that doesn’t produce as belly laughs as it should.

Margot Robbie Reveals How She Felt About Brad Pitt’s SAG Joke About Tarantino And Her Feet

Margot Robbie responded to Brad Pitt’s speech while speaking with ET at the Harleywood and Highland event in Los Angeles to promote her upcoming movie, Birds of Prey. The actress is plastering back on her pale makeup and bringing her bat for a return to Harley Quinn without Jared Leto’s Joker. She’ll find a girl gang in Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress, Jurnee Smolett-Bell’s Black Canary, Rosie Perez’s Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco’s Cassandra Cain.

Why Joker Isn’t Quite The Game-Changer As People Think

Does Joker draw attention to the comic book movie genre as a whole? Sure, but it’s a double-edged sword, because by switching to a psychological thriller narrative that lacks the spirit and outlandish nature of a superhero story, let alone one from Batman’s world, it ends up feeling more like an honorary comic book movie. Again, if you like Joker, that’s perfectly fine, but think twice about putting in the same category as the superhero/comic book movies that embrace their roots rather than largely ignore them.

Taylor Swift’s Documentary Miss Americana Has Screened, See What People Are Saying

The music industry is certainly still a “man’s world,” and Taylor Swift has been subject to scrutiny from the very beginning that her male counterparts would never have to deal with, such as the many men she’s dated, like Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Disney’s Bambi Will Be The Next Live-Action Remake, With Some Marvel Talent

The story of the little deer prince of the woods, Bambi is one of Walt Disney’s most memorable films from their golden era of cinema. Though part of that infamy comes from the fact that for generations after its release, children were traumatized by the death of Bambi’s mother in the picture’s earlier moments. A tale of growing up and sticking with your friends, it’s definitely a legacy title that’s ripe for the remake treatment.
