Not only do we know for sure when Legends will premiere in January 2016, but the latest DC heroes kick asses all over time and space with our first full trailer!

I have seen The Big Short. It is good. You should see The Big Short. But you should also be aware: This trailer feels almost nothing like the actual movie.
TV resurrections certainly hit a boiling point over the last few days, between last night’s dumpster-diving Walking Dead, or this morning’s surprise Game of Thrones revelation, a proximity not lost on the former’s creative minds. The Walking Dead took a playful shot at Game of Thrones for torturing fans, but is the pot calling the kettle (or perhaps just taking the) black?
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. But in lieu of Yuletide carols, maybe’ll give or receive an HBO NOW subscription this holiday season. If so, you’re definitely going to want to read the latest update of what’s coming to and leaving HBO’s stand-alone streaming service this December.
Earlier today, Matt Singer wrote an article all about the “Legacyquel” phenomenon where “beloved aging stars reprise classic roles and pass the torch to younger successors.” Recent examples include Creed, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and X-Men: Days of Future Past. One film that almost got added to that list is the now-defunct Aliens sequel where director Neill Blomkamp’s proposed follow-up would’ve had Sigourney Weaver returning co-star alongside a now-grown Newt, who would be the franchise’s new action hero.
Fargo Season 2 may not garner quite the same ratings as its predecessor (despite critical raves), and showrunner Noah Hawley seems to have picked up a few other projects in the meantime, but you can bet that another homespun tale of murder and mayhem is on its way. FX has officially renewed Fargo for a third season in our future, don’t cha know?

Despite resting up for Thanksgiving, The Flash will have plenty beyond turkey on his plate in the coming weeks, first kicking off the Legends of Tomorrow crossover (potentially with a shark-sized big bad). The final hour of 2015 may bring even more DC goodness however, returning Mark Hamill as the Trickster alongside Liam McIntyre’s Weather Wizard, and even introducing its version of fellow speedster Wally West.
It may be called Creed, but make no mistake: This is a Rocky movie. This next-gen legacyquel stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson Creed, the illegitimate son of Rocky’s late rival and friend Apollo Creed, who decides to follow in his dancing footsteps and become a professional boxer. He heads to Philadelphia and finds former champ Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) running his restaurant Adrian’s, then convinces him to come out of retirement and help train him for a championship match.
Sylvester Stallone became a star playing Rocky Balboa, but did you know that United Artists wanted to buy Stallone’s script for Rocky and cast another actor in the title role? Before they finally agreed to let Stallone have the part, they tried to cast actors like Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, and James Caan. That’s just one of the facts crammed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes the distance on the original 1976 classic, Rocky.
