The first teaser trailer for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to premiere on Monday, April 20. This clip that director Zack Synder tweeted Wednesday night is a preview. In essence, it’s a teaser for the teaser. How ridiculous is this insanity?
For those hardcore fans who want to see the teaser trailer on the big screen, Synder revealed it will be screened in selected Imax cinemas with a special intro from himself. Simply RSVP at http://www.batmanvsupermandawnofjustice.com/imax/ to reserve your spot.
Though the very short clip doesn’t reveal too much, it does build anticipation. It gives up close shots of Superman and Batman’s costumes with dramatically chilling music playing in the background. Check it out below.
In 1893, New Zealand was the first self-governing country to grant women over the age of 21 the right to vote. In Britain, however, women were only given the right in 1918 and that was only for those over the age of 30 and meeting certain property qualifications. A decade later, suffrage was extended to all woman over the age of 21.
The painful struggle of these trailblazing women is being told in a new movie titled Suffragette. Meryl Streep plays legendary British activist Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. The Oscar winner is joined by Carey Mulligan who portrays a foot solider in the feminist movement. Rounding out the cast are Helena Bonham Carter, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw and Brendan Gleeson.
SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
Focus Features has set the film for an October 23, 2015 limited release. Check out the first teaser trailer below.
Betsy Braddock, better known as Psylocke, is a female mutant with telepathy and telekinesis powers who later becomes a ninja assassin in the X-Men comic books.

Did you watch the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday? How fine did Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez and Matt Bomer look as they presented the Best Scared-As-S**t Performance award to Jennifer Lopez? I can’t wait to see these studs grinding their hips once again on the big screen on July 1, 2015.
Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed Tatum’s character poster for the hotly anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL. It comes with the hashtag #MagicMondays which probably means the studio will be unveiling each character’s artwork the following Mondays. Check out Channing’s below and in case you’ve missed it, I’ve also embedded the teaser trailer.
Good things do come in small packages. When I first heard about Ant-Man, the premise didn’t overly excite me. Really a pint-sized action hero? But since it starred Paul Rudd, whom I love, I was willing to give it a shot.
After watching the first full-length trailer, I’m actually stoked for it now. The clip gives a first glance at the origin story of the diminutive superhero. Marvel’s new offering looks to be one action-packed piece of awesomeness.
“The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man, when master thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.”
Joining Rudd and Douglas are Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, T.I., Bobby Cannavale and Corey Stoll who plays the villain Yellowjacket. It’s crawls into theaters on July 7. Check out the trailer below.
It’s the final curtain call for the “Dancing Queens” of Mamma Mia. After 12 years on the Great White Way, the ABBA-inspired musical will shut down production on September 5. I guess theatergoers were no longer answering their “S.O.S”
“‘Mamma Mia!’ has celebrated a passionate 14-year love affair with New York City,” creator and global producer Judy Craymer said in a statement. “I am thrilled that ‘Mamma Mia!’ has brought the music of ABBA to Broadway and so grateful to the hundreds of wonderful actors, musicians, stage managers, crew, front of house staff and the other people of the theatre who have given their professional lives and souls to be part of the ‘Mamma Mia!’ family and adventure on Broadway. And a huge thank you to our fans who have come from all over the world to see the show.”
According to Variety, Eddie Redmayne is on top of the list to play the lead in the Harry Potter spin-off. The events of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them takes place in New York seven decades before Potter’s story begins.
Redmayne is being eyed to play Newt Scamander in the highly-anticipated film. The character is described as a “magiczoologist.” For all you Potterheads, you know that’s a person who studies magical creatures. Besides Scamander, there are four other main roles — two American girls and two American boys.
Just when you thought the cast couldn’t get any more star-studded, Sir Ian McKellen enters the scene. The 75-year-old actor is the latest to join Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty & The Beast.
He joins previously announced cast members Emma Watson (Belle), Daniel Stevens (The Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Audra McDonald (Singing Wardrobe), Kevin Kline (Maurice) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts). There aren’t many roles left to fill. Have any guesses which one McKellen has been tapped to play? Find out below.
