Late in 2014, Sony announced that they’d be mounting a crossover film uniting the diegetic universes of their flagship properties 21 Jump Street and Men In Black. It’s impossible to ignore the feeling that the aging properties are responding to...

A new trailer for Concussion has arrived, featuring more footage from the upcoming sports drama starring Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who discovers just how traumatic — and fatal — head injuries can be for football players. Based on actual events (and ongoing controversy), Concussion looks like a very different kind of sports movie, though there’s still something a bit average about these trailers.
By now, you’ve surely seen the two Suicide Squad covers on Empire Magazine highlighting Jared Leto’s new version of The Joker. Just in case you thought that was going to be all, today brings us even new Empire covers, including two of the other big stars of the film, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Will Smith as Deadshot.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie looks like a lot of things: a gritty comic book movie, a super villain super-team-up, an action-packed anti-hero story, a showcase for Batman villain / career nut job Harley Quinn, etc. etc. It looks like a lot of things, but what it doesn’t look like is a love story. According to Ayer and Will Smith, there is actually a bit of a love story happening in Suicide Squad — actually, it’s more of a wacky love triangle.
Back in June we learned that Joe Carnahan (The Grey) is interested in directing Bad Boys 3, and in August it was reported that Sony had officially put the long-awaited sequel on their release calendar for 2017 (along with a spot for Bad Boys 4 in 2019). Not much else has been reported about the third installment in the franchise, but Will Smith himself has officially confirmed that we’ll be seeing Bad Boys 3 very soon.
Jared Leto could probably best be described as a little intense. And this was before he signed on to play The Joker in Suicide Squad. Rumors that Leto never broke character have been confirmed by co-star Will Smith who said that despite working with the Oscar-winning actor for six months, he still has never actually met the man himself.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song has earned a permanent place in all our ears, but did you know NBC briefly canceled the series after Season 4? Or that Will Smith had only a single acting credit to his name before? We'd like to take a minute, just sit right there, ‘You Think You Know TV?’ will tell you all about The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
The first trailer for Sony’s Concussion dropped earlier this week, showing off the new Will Smith football drama centering on the doctor who challenged the NFL over the longterm effects of repeated head injuries. Although the film doesn’t hit theaters until Christmas, it’s already inspiring a bit of real-life drama as reports suggest that Sony may have had the script changed to avoid angering the NFL, while the league itself has begun to develop its own game plan.
As of December 2012, thirty-three former NFL players have been formally diagnosed post-mortem with CTE. As the NFL continues to try to bury the issue (they recently denied permission to Seau’s daughter to speak in-person at her father’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony over fears she would publicize the CTE debate), a new film looks to tackle the issue head on and today we have our first look at Concussion.
Captain America: Civil War isn’t the only major superhero film that wrapped principal production this week — Bryan Singer completed his primary work on X-Men: Apocalypse, and David Ayer also finished the principal work on Suicide Squad. To celebrate, Ayer grabbed (almost) the entire cast along with much of the crew for one big photo.
