I woke this morning to a variety of recaps of the new episode of Louie. My Twitter feed was full of references to some kind of amazing poop joke that Louis C.K. makes on the show this week. Who better, then, to star in a children’s film? They love poop jokes almost as much as they love fart jokes!

Warner Bros. has planned one of the most ambitious trailer launches in history for their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Monday, April 20, fans can attend a special event at IMAX theaters around the country where the new Batman v Superman trailer will debut after a special introduction from director Zack Snyder. They spent this week teasing that big unveiling with previews of the preview on Snyder’s Twitter feed. This was a carefully orchestrated media event.
There was a lot of star power on the stage at Star Wars Celebration yesterday; John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and old Star Wars favorites Mark Hammil, Anthony Daniels, and Carrie Fisher. But one man stole the show and the spotlight from all of them.
Ultimate Star Wars fans, take notice. Pretty soon you’ll be able to board a special Star Wars plane painted to look like R2-D2, perfect for taking flight — though not to a galaxy far, far away, unfortunately. You’ll need to talk to NASA about that. All Nippon Airways is launching the very special plane this fall in honor of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In case you weren’t aware, Star Wars is kind of a big deal again. It’s pretty much all we talked about on the internet today.
In case you had forgotten, there’s a new Peter Pan origin story hitting theaters this year, in which Hugh Jackman sports a questionable hair piece and even more questionable facial hair. To remind you, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming Pan, which comes from the beloved Joe Wright, the director of some movies you really enjoy, like Hanna and Atonement.
If the title Marwencol sounds familiar to you, that’s because Robert Zemeckis’ next project is a narrative feature adaptation of the 2010 documentary of the same name. That film was a hit on the festival circuit before finding a bigger audience on Netflix Instant (sorry, it’s no longer available), and now Zemeckis will bring that story to an even wider audience with the help of Steve Carell.
After watching this intense teaser, I sincerely hope that the fine folks at Blumhouse Productions do not release another trailer for The Gallows. Work whatever other marketing magic must be worked, but this teaser is seriously more than enough to get people in theater seats. The people who brought you Paranormal Activity and Insidious are at it again with their latest, a film that looks like it picked up the right tips from its predecessors.
A big part of the fun of the MCU is watching various superheroes pop up in other superhero films, and Marvel has also been taking that approach by having their film stars (sparingly) appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This helps solidify Marvel’s “everything is connected” approach, but will the studio go the same route with their Netflix shows? According to a new rumor, that may be the case.
Star Wars! It’s back! With lightsabers! And Stormtroopers! Jedis! The Force! The Force awakening! X-wings! X-wings flying over water! R2-D2! Other, additional droids! The Millennium Falcon!
Jared Leto’s hair is kind of a big deal right now. It’s become its own entity, mutating until it eventually takes its final form. It looks like we’re very close now, as the Suicide Squad star has revealed a selfie in which he sports some signature Joker-green hair, along with a little bit of lipstick, which really does make his eyes pop, you know? Sadly, we have had no updates on the hair belonging to any of his co-stars, as Leto continues to steal their hair-thunder.
