Mission: Impossible – Fallout is unique in several ways: it’s the first time a writer-director has done two consecutive IMF missions; it’s the first time an entry in the series is a direct sequel to the previous one; it’s the first entry in which its star suffered an injury severe enough for the film to take an eight-week hiatus, and it’s the second straight entry to feature a female character – Ilsa Faust – who is as good at her job as Ethan Hunt is at his.
It’s also a non-stop rush – and really puts the impossible in Mission: Impossible.
Netflix’s Sand Castle examines the real cost of war as it follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who together with several fellow soldiers is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger.
Netflix has released a handful of photos from the production. The four remaining follow the break – double click to embiggen. Sand Castle’s premiere date is TBD.
Well, now we know. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice missed the mark because its heart was edited out before it hit the theaters.
Check out the short but informative trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition after the break. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition – on Digital HD on June 28th and Blu-Ray on July 19th.
The first trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was ponderous, portentous and pretentious. It really worried me. Then the succeeding trailers told us that we were getting Lex Luthor and Doomsday in the same movie – on top of adding the introduction of Wonder Woman. That seemed like an awful lot of apples to put in one basket – but there’s actually more than that in the movie.
Zack Snyder has released two posters for Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice – and they are dark & twisted, as you can see frm the Superman poster above. Follow the jump to check out the Batman version.

After someone in Mexico posted a pirated copy of the Batman v Superman trailer, DC and Zack Snyder responded by making it available online in its full, in focus, deeply dark entirety. Check it out after the jump.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens wide – very wide – on May 25, 2016.
Wow! That did not take long! That being, of course, a slickly edited fan trailer for Man of Steel 2, Barman vs. Superman, or whatever it’s being called this week. It’s a skilful interweaving of scenes from Man of Steel, Daredevil and a few other films and it looks pretty good.
Man of Steel is to movie adaptations of DC Comics characters what Iron Man and Iron Man 3 are to movie adaptations of Marvel’s superheroes. It cuts through the multiple iterations of Superman origin stories from 75 years of the character, takes the best bits, filters them through the filters of story writers Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer and then zaps them with the energy and vision of director Zack Snyder. It is best Superman movie since Superman II – and easily on a par with that film.
