lex_luthor

During Super Bowl 50, Warner Bros. aired two spots that give a PR spin on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with ads for Turkish Airlines adding two new destinations to its schedule – Gotham City (with billionaire Bruce Wayne talking up Gotham) and Metropolis (with billionaire Lex Luthor inviting tourists to visit).

Check them out after the jump.

The Good Wife Is Gone!

THE GOOD WIFE

CBS has announced that The Good Wife will conclude its run at the end of the current (7th) season.

With the show’s creators, Robert and Michelle King, leaving at the end of the season and star Julianna Margulies’ contract ending at the same time, the move makes – despite the show continuing to draw over 11 million viewers a week in a tough Sunday night timeslot.

Follow the jump for the date of the series finale and reactions from the Kings and Margulies.

One thing I’ve enjoyed about The X-Files (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) during this six-episode run is the way the show has touched on familiar themes by producing fresh variations on the kinds of episodes that won the show its following in the nineties.

This week’s episode, Home Again – written and directed by Glen Morgan – gives us a supernatural mystery while also giving us events that are anchored in reality.

Literally, this week’s episode of The Magicians (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) finds Quentin back in a very familiar – yet strangely different – environment: the hospital we saw in the premiere.

Only, of course, it’s not quite the same… is it?

Thus begins Pride & Prejudice & Zombies – the movie adaptation of the novel that married Jane Austin’s social satire to the zombie apocalypse. All the important plot points (and best lines) from the novel are here – along with a large amount of blood and gore.

The Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar Is a Demented Delight!

Hail, Caesar - Baird Whitlock

The Coen Brothers’ love of movies – especially, in this case, movies of the fifties – has never been in greater display than in Hail, Caesar. As the film follows Capitol Films’ Head of Physical Production, Eddie Mannix, through twenty-fours of doing his job (he fixes problems that the studio’s actors create) we are taken through four very clever pastiches.

The problem with Hail, Caesar is that, if you’re not an avid fan of films from 65 years ago, you will probably miss out on over half the movie.

The Choice Is Yet Another Nicholas Sparks Movie!

The Choice is better than I was expecting – which is to say it was a notch above mediocre. It follows the standard Nicholas Sparks formula – a couple meets cute, bickers ‘til they don’t, fall in love, obstacles (sometimes tragic) ensue, and love conquers all.

What is unexpected is the genuine chemistry between the leads – Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer – and some lovely supporting performances (including a couple by some very talented dogs).
