‘Justice League': What Did You Think?

Be aware this is a spoiler discussion of Justice League. Love it or hate it (or think it's kinda just dumb but fun), Justice League is one fascinating piece of filmmaking. The product of two visions and two filmmakers, Justice League began as a Zack Snyder epic, but the filmmaker stepped down from the project over personal matters, Wonder Woman offered a course correction for the Dceu, and Joss Whedon was brought on board to finish the film in time for the release date. Well, the release date is here, the film is as finished as it'll ever …

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Visual Effects

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Visual Effects
A bunch of sequels and a remake are vying for the Best Visual Effects Oscar this year, many of them from Disney, including Bill Condon’s live-action remake of Disney’s classic “Beauty and the Beast,” Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” and Lucasfilm’s upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Three Fox films offer stunning VFX: “War for the Planet of the Apes,” which advances its visual effects technology over the last Matt Reeves installment featuring Weta Digital’s astonishing array of digital apes led by performance capture master Andy Serkis as Caesar, could win Weta’s Joe Letteri (“Avatar,” “King Kong,” “The Lord of the Rings”) his fifth Oscar. Another visually sumptuous sequel is Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049.” And Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” is also impressive.

Two Warner Bros. blockbusters, Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Patty Jenkins’ World War I superhero origin myth “Wonder Woman,

‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing

‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing
After an unspeakable family loss, Zack Snyder left “Justice League” in May and handed the film over to Joss Whedon to complete. However, Whedon was already been working with Snyder to write new material for additional photography. That Whedon was already taking his cues from Snyder in reshaping the film — to say nothing of the “Avengers” credit on his resume — made him the obvious choice to direct the reshoots and steer the film over the finish line.

Since then, “Justice League” producers, cast, and crew have been in lock-step in their message: Whedon selflessly came aboard to carry out Snyder’s vision. Wonder Woman herself chimed in: “This is Zack Snyder’s movie,” said Gal Gadot in an interview with Empire Magazine. “Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”

Movie Reviews: .Justice League. and .Mudbound.

We all know it.s .Justice League. weekend at the box-office but besides the superhero saga, we also have the Netflix film .Mudbound.. It.s blockbusters versus Oscar contenders at the box-office. Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look!

Justice League movie review: grab ’em by the fanboy

MaryAnn’s quick take… The cinematic equivalent of Trump and Brexit as awfulness brought upon ourselves. Incoherent and cheap-looking. There are no heroes, and everything is broken. I’m “biast” (pro): loved Wonder Woman, liked Man of Steel

I’m “biast” (con): …but not a fan of the other Dceu movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

These are the times that try woman’s soul. Trump. Brexit. Harvey Weinstein. Al Franken. (Really? Damn.) Global warming. Syria. Everything is awful. Everything is broken. Blake Shelton is People’s Sexiest Man alive? Christ, someone make it stop.

So it’s actually rather brilliant of Warner Bros and DC to fully embrace the everything-is-shit zeitgeist with a movie that just throws up its hands and agrees that the world and those in charge of it are garbage. Justice League is almost a meta exegesis of reality in

Warner Bros.-DC’s “Justice League” is heading for a disappointing opening weekend of about $95 million at 4,051 North American locations, early estimates showed on Friday.

Should it come in at the top of current estimates, “Justice League” might finish the weekend in the same range as “The Fate of the Furious” — which launched in April to $98.7 million as the seventh-largest opening of the year.

The six films that have cracked the $100 million opening mark this year are Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” at $174.8 million, Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” at $146.5 million, Warner-New Line’s “It” at $123.4 million, Disney-Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” at $122.7 million, Sony-Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” at $117 million, and Warner-dc’s “Wonder Woman” at $103.3 million.

Is Martian Manhunter Getting His Own Dceu Movie?

Is Martian Manhunter Getting His Own Dceu Movie?
With Justice League hitting theaters this weekend, the Dceu is hoping for another big hit along the lines of Wonder Woman, and while the reviews may not be the best (40% on Rotten Tomatoes), there is still plenty of improvement and growth within the Dceu. While promoting Justice League, producer Charles Roven was asked which of the numerous other characters from the DC Comics he would like to see have their own movie. Here's what he had to say, when asked what the "most unusual property in the DC toy box" could make for a good movie.

"I wouldn't necessarily say that I would rather do that character, because we know that there is going to be a Flash movie, we know that Aquaman is being done, I think that Cyborg deserves his own movie too, and I know that the fans are out there screaming for Green Lantern, that's for sure.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon both auditioned for Robin in Tim Burton’s Batman

Last year, Ben Affleck donned the cape and cowl as the DC Extended Universe’s incarnation of The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, reprising the role for Suicide Squad and this weekend’s big release Justice League.

However, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel, Affleck has revealed that he could have made his DC debut almost thirty years prior, with both he and his pal Matt Damon having auditioned for the role of Robin the Boy Wonder in 1989’s Batman from director Tim Burton. Here’s Affleck talking about their auditions…

The character of Robin was ultimately deleted from the script, with Marlon Wayans signing on for the role in Batman Returns, only for the part to be cut once again. Chris O’Donnell eventually portrayed Dick Grayson alongside Val Kilmer in Batman Forever, and returned opposite George Clooney in Batman & Robin.

Jessica Biel's Lilac Jumpsuit, Olivia Culpo's Sheer Perfection & More Best Dressed Stars of the Week

It's all in the details. Margot Robbie perfectly paired her velvet gown with a whimsical feathered jacket. Jessica Biel completed her pastel look with a lavender headband and Rachel Bilson added a touch of sparkle with gold dangling earrings.

An elegant or understated ensemble can be toned down or dressed up with the right amount of bling, a staple shoe or the perfect shade of lipstick. Or maybe, as was the case with Lisa Bonet, a stunning date like her new hubby, Jason Momoa, can make for some great arm candy. This week, accessories were among the staple pieces that added a fashion-forward punch to celebrities' outfits.

These stars -- and their handy stylists -- made all the correct choices and slayed the fashion game for the week of Nov. 12.

Justice League – hit or miss for the DC Extended Universe? Discuss with spoilers

It has patched-together directing, shoddy special effects and a wetter than ever Batman, but is the latest Dceu instalment still worth watching?

• This article contains spoilers

Just when you thought it was safe to head back into the Twittersphere, the ongoing war between Marvel and DC fanboys and girls is about to reignite. Why? Because the critics don’t really like new DC Extended Universe instalment, Justice League, much more than they did the operatically dark and muddled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or the bombastically nonsensical Suicide Squad. That’s now three out of four movies in this new superhero cinematic realm that have failed to pass muster, with only Patty JenkinsWonder Woman standing tall.

Warner Bros. reportedly concerned that Justice League could open lower than Thor: Ragnarok

The sixth and final superhero movie of 2017 hit cinemas today, as Warner Bros. assembles its greatest heroes for the DC team-up movie Justice League.

It’s the second superhero movie we’ve had in recent weeks after Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, and according to THR, executives at Warner Bros. are apparently sweating over Justice League’s opening weekend, being concerned that it may fail to outperform its Marvel rival.

“If a B character from Marvel shut downs and outperforms the A team from DC, that’s an embarrassment,” the trade quotes an insider at the studio. “It’s going to be a stressful weekend for some [Warners] execs.”

Thor: Ragnarok opened to $122.7 million domestically, while Justice League is said to be tracking between $110 million and $120 million – although as we’ve seen on numerous occasions, tracking is often wide of the mark.
