Faster than a speeding bullet, Comic-Con is upon once again. The biggest, nerdiest party in the world kicks off on Wednesday in San Diego and, yes, Team ScreenCrush will be on hand to cover it all. With Marvel, Sony, and Paramount, all sitting out this year’s big geek bash, the clear #1 panel to anticipate is Warner Bros. Saturday morning showcase of their upcoming slate. The presentation will include clips from the new live-action Pan starring Hugh Jackman, and the movie version of the ’60s spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But the star attraction is unquestionably an appearance by Zack Snyder and the stars of next spring’s hotly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Can Guy Ritchie work the same magic on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. that he did with Sherlock Holmes (not the sequel, let’s not mention that)? After seeing the first trailer back in February, it seems possible, but even more so with the second trailer which just arrived today. Rather than modernize the classic ‘60s television series, Ritchie keeps things retro with this period action piece, and it looks like it could be kind of fun.
Seemingly taking a cue from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, the latest promo art for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (be sure to take a break to catch your breath every time you say that title) is also adorned with graffiti. According to the official plot synopsis released yesterday, Batman and Superman aren’t just fighting — they’re at war. And these new promo photos definitely encourage that idea.
The title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is so detailed that you almost don’t need an official synopsis of any kind. From that collection of words, you can easily extrapolate the following: the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel will fight each other, but it will ultimately lead to them teaming up and forming the Justice League. Anyway, the actual, official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s superhero throwdown has arrived and it confirms everything you expect it to confirm.
Man, it’s just all about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week. And this movie doesn’t come out for almost another year! You’ve got the first teaser, you’ve got the first posters, and now there’s a new video, from Bleacher Report, that features NBA player DeAndre Jordan touring through Warner Bros. Studios’ Batman exhibit, and getting a special sneak preview of the Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman costumes from Batman v Superman, along with the brand-new Batmobile. It’s not enough that he’s hugely successful and wildly rich? He gets to see the Batman costume before the rest of us too? Lucky son of a gun.
Man, things are just not going well lately for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. First, someone leaked the filmmakers’ plans to release a snippet of the film’s teaser trailer on Twitter to advertise a big premiere event for the rest of the coming attraction at IMAX theaters around the country. Then someone uploaded a grainy bootleg of the trailer, essentially spoiling the big reveal almost a week early. (Warner Bros. later released a high-res version.) Now someone’s defaced the movie’s first posters! Damn internet hooligans! Get off my digital lawn!
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.
Earlier today we learned that the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its debut at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in California. But that’s not the only major film we’re interested in — unless you went to Comic-Con last year, you didn’t get to see the teaser for Batman vs. Superman, and you’ve been anxiously awaiting your first look at the feuding heroes in action. Turns out, you’ll get your chance much sooner than you realize.
Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the popular 1960s NBC spy series ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ is very much a throwback to the classic spy movies. Whereas most modern spy movies, like ‘Skyfall’ or the upcoming ‘Kingsman’, do their best to distance themselves from the Roger Moore style, ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ actually embraces it. It’s even set in the 1960s. But, is there an audience for a good, old fashioned spy movie? Watch the new ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ trailer and see for yourself.
At the start of the weekend, rumors began swirling that ‘Batman v Superman’* would be split into two parts, thanks to the circulation of a supposedly leaked screenshot teasing two different installments. It was difficult to read the official URL at the bottom of that screenshot, which many journalists were quick to point out was likely an unofficial, fan-created site. And now Superman himself, Henry Cavill, is officially debunking the rumors, confirming that the film will definitely not be split into two parts—so you can all stop being cranky about it.
