‘Striking Vipers’ to ‘San Junipero': Every ‘Black Mirror’ Episode Ranked, From Good to Mind-Blowing (Photos)
With the arrival of “Striking Vipers,” “Smithereens” and “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too,” it’s time to re-rank every episode of “Black Mirror,” going back to the first episode, “National Anthem.” There are no bad “Black Mirror” episodes, so we ranked them from good to mind-blowing.

23. Season 2, Episode 3: “The Waldo Moment”

Many have made the now-trite observation that this episode, about a cartoon bear who insults his way into higher office, predicted the rise of Donald Trump. Okay. This episode does a good job of again showing that we bend too easily before the loud and obnoxious. But “Black Mirror” usually had more novel things to say.

22. Season 3, Episode 6: “Hated in the Nation”

It’s disappointing that Season 3 — in which “Black Mirror” produced some of the best television, well, ever — ended on such a so-so note. This story about a killer hashtag and Terminator bees has shades of “Sharknado.

Will Smith Battles Against Himself - Literally - in the Action-Packed Trailer For Gemini Man
If Jordan Peele's Us had been an action-packed sci-fi flick rather than a gruesome, mind-bending horror film, then perhaps it would've looked a little closer to the trailer for Ang Lee's Gemini Man.

The film stars Will Smith as Henry, a highly trained expert-level hitman who's getting up there in age. Despite all his skills, nothing seems to matter when it comes to facing off against his latest opponent, who seems to know all his moves before he makes them. How? Because he is him.

In addition to heavy hitters like Smith and Owen, the film stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong, and Douglas Hodge. Watch the trailer for Gemini Man above before it hits theaters on Oct. 11.

Joker Floors CinemaCon with Dark and Sadistic First Footage

Joker Floors CinemaCon with Dark and Sadistic First Footage
The world will get a taste of director Todd Phillips' Joker when the first trailer debuts tomorrow. But today, we have word out of CinemaCon of what this sneak peek contains. The first footage was shown to exhibitors, and the word on the street is that we're all in for a very dark, tragic and sadistic treat as Joaquin Phoenix dons the make-up of DC's iconic Clown Prince of Crime.

This doesn't sound like your typical DC movie. While Man of Steel and Batman V Superman were dark and humorless, and Aquaman and Shazam were bright poppy splashes of fun, this Joker stand alone movie sounds like a completely different kind of beast altogether. It does not stand in the Dceu, and is not currently connected to any other movie or directly setting up another spin-off. It does however, in the first teaser, contain quite a few iconic pieces of Batman paraphernalia.
