Just as they did with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. will be releasing an extended cut of Suicide Squad on home video. Fans will be able to watch this extended cut with 13 minutes of new footage on Digital HD as early as November 15th, while the film hits Blu-ray on December 13th.
Soon after teasing big announcements to come for Wolverine 3, Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold took to Twitter to announce that the movie will be titled Logan. In addition, Jackman and Mangold also debuted the first poster for the movie, which is made up of a single shot of a child’s hand holding Logan’s … claws out.
Though Guardians of the Galaxy was a tongue-in-cheek, superhero space opera starring Chris Pratt, it’s actually the deadliest blockbuster of all time. Thanks to a comprehensive list from the financial services comparison website Go Compare, the movie has topped a study as having the biggest body count of all best-performing Hollywood films since the 1940s. This is thanks in large party to its especially bloody finale that sees the killing of over 80,000 Nova Corps pilots in one of its closing scenes – which brings the total number of casualties to 83,871.
Ben Affleck’s Live by Night is now jumping into the Oscar race. Warner Bros. on Tuesday announced that the film adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel will now hit select theaters on Christmas Day before it’s already pre-dated release on January 13th. Affleck directs and co-stars in the the crime drama alongside Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana and Chris Cooper.

Collider’s Steve Weintraub recently interviewed J.K. Simmons at the press event for The Accountant, where he mentioned the set visit he did on Justice League earlier this summer. Simmons spoke about his first day on set, which took place on the rooftop of police headquarters and featured Gordon conversing with the entire Justice League. He said he was excited about the whole universe and it has been a fun experience.
The first trailer has been released for Get Out, the new horror/thriller written and directed by Jordan Peele, one-half of the comedy duo Key & Peele. The movie tells the story of Chris and his girlfriend Rose on a weekend getaway to meet her parents where Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship. As the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. The movie is set to hit theatres on February 24th.
According to Variety, Rachel McAdams will join Rachel Weisz in Disobedience, a film based on the novel by Naomi Alderman. The movie tells the story of Ronit Krushka, a 32-year-old woman who returns to her Orthodox Jewish home after her father died, where she upsets the community when she rekindles a past love for her best friend, who is now married to her cousin. Weisz will play Ronit and McAdams will play her friend. Production is set for an early 2017 start.

Does the re-release of the Harry Potter films in IMAX count against their original box office totals? Meaning does the possibility exist they could surpass other films in the box office totals of all time?
Hey Collider crew, I have a question that has been on my mind since seeing Civil War. Homecoming was one of Buckys trigger words in civil war and homecoming is the title of spiderman. Do you think it’s just coincidence or will Bucky play some kind of role in the past or present of Peter parkers life?
