Warner Brothers has done something no one would have predicted a year ago – released to good-to-great superheroes inside a calendar year. (No, they’re nowhere near Marvel consistently, but they’re moving in the right direction.)
Justice League maintains the portentous/brutalist look that director Zack Snyder set for the DCEU, but following the few faint glimmerings of wit in Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman – and the wit, charm and adventure of Wonder Woman – the film maintains the levels of danger and conflict from earlier DCEU films while making a point of balancing its darkness with genuine fun.
It’s November 2017 and a lot big budget movies are getting their release! As such, this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News begins with the hosts revealing their Rotten Tomatoes and Opening Box Office Predictions for: Murder on the Orient Express, Justice League, and Coco.
After all of that, GeekScholars Fox and Jill share their spoiler-free review of Thor: Ragnarok!
Earlier today, Warner Bros. dropped the final trailer for Justice League.
It still has the kind of ponderous feel of a Zack Snyder film, but is leavened with some very potent humor (personally, I’m going to see Justice League for Aquaman’s somewhat flip attitude and zest for battle, alongside The Flash’s geeky awe and enthusiasm).
Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed (and that is the correct word) a new Justice League trailer at SDCC 2017 earlier today.
It sets up Steppenwolf as the villain (has the invasion from Apokalips begun?) and gives us a really good look at our heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash (Aquaman’s moment is particularly invigorating).
Mattel gave me a tour of their Comic-Con booth last night and there were some interesting Justice League movie reveals. Namely all the vehicles they’ll be using in the movie. We got a great glimpse of the Batmobile with the unveiling of a brand new remote controlled Batmobile (which I’m so tempted to buy!), the new Batwing and a brand new Troop Transport. So check out this indepth look at the Brand new Batmobile followed up by a booth tour.
Warner Bros. has released a couple snippets of film to tease the release of the first trailer of Justice League on Saturday – one featuring Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and one featuring Batman (Ben Affleck).
As any long time Batman fan can tell you, Batman has a number of suits beyond the standard scare-the-crap-outta-the-bad-guys-night-time-avenger uniform. There are suits for deep sea, outer space and many more.
Zack Snyder has just revealed a new Batsuit from Justice League and it looks like a serious tactical suit – sporting goggles and much heavier looking armor. In short, it’s kinda bad@$$. Check it out after the break.
The hosts are finally reunited on this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News! There’s lots to discuss including Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly starring in a comedic Sherlock Holmes movie, a Big Lebowski spin-off, a Jumanji sequel, a Clue reboot and much more! To close things out, the GeekScholars weigh in on the first preview for Arrival, an upcoming alien thriller from Denis Villenueve (Sicario, Prisoners).
