As we’re all getting ready to head into Oscar season, we’re reminded once again that it’s also Razzie time! The Razzies are the counter awards to the Oscars that are presented each year the day before the Academy Awards celebrating the absolute worst in film that year. See the full list of Razzie nominees here.
While the Comic Con trailer for the upcoming Batman V Superman was considered by many to be one of the best, if not the best, trailer of 2015, the follow-up showing the trio of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman together gave us our first look at Doomsday, and had many scratching their heads. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, director Zack Snyder talked about the decision to include Doomsday in the recent trailer. He said the following:
“We had a long conversation about just taking ownership of that, of giving it to the audience in a controlled way that I felt was consistent with the escalation of the campaign. To us it really made sense to give [Doomsday] to the audience now. I really wanted to make the audience a promise that… though I’m super excited and happy and fulfilled by the conflict of Batman and Superman, there’s also a bigger world to start to think about.”

The upcoming Fox superhero film Deadpool is now less than one month away, and although we’ve known for some time that the film was aiming for an R rating, it is now official. The MPAA has just given Deadpool an R rating for, as they describe it: “strong violence and language throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity.”
While most of us have been talking about George Clooney’s upcoming film Hail, Caesar, a new trailer has just dropped for his other upcoming film Money Monster. Clooney stars as Lee Gates, a bombastic television stock huckster, whose program (the titular “Money Monster”), and life, are taken hostage by an outraged gunman. As much of the world watches live, Gates must keep himself alive and, with help from the woman who produces the show, uncover the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.
Coming off the success of 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, there was a lot of talk about the next Mad Max film director George Miller would do. There has even been talk about him having 2 new chapters in the story ready to go. However, in a recent interview with Page 6, Miller announced he’s done with directing the Max films saying the following:
“I won’t make more ‘Mad Max’ movies. ‘Fury Road’ was forever getting completed. If you finish one in a year, it’s considered a leap of faith. Start, stop, start again. I’ve shot in Australia in a field of wild flowers and flat red earth when it rained heavily forever. We had to wait 18 months and every return to the US was 27 hours. Those ‘Mad Maxes’ take forever. I won’t do those anymore.”

Jorge Lopez writes: I was recently reading about the casting list of the actors that are being taken in consideration to play Han Solo in the next Star Wars movie Rogue One and I was surprised that Anthony Ingruber (Age of Adaline) didn’t make it to that list. I think he is the perfect guy to play the character not only because he looks a lot like Harrison Ford but at the same time he doesn’t need to do much because he is not the main character. What are your thoughts? Keep up the good work.
Cedric Cannon writes: There was no discussion on the news regarding the Chinese based company acquiring Legendary Pictures in your recent show. With that in mind I was wondering if you feel that Legendary’s absence in BvS would be felt? I personally think Legendary has been one of the most genre fan friendly production companies of the past ten years but Marvel seems to overshadow them attention wise even though financially, they have both done pretty well. Stay filthy my friends!
