‘The Accountant’ Trailer: Ben Affleck Has a Beautiful Mind
Early details on The Accountant made the new film from Warrior director Gavin O’Connor sound like it was based on a graphic novel, even though it’s not: Ben Affleck stars as a white collar accountant who leads a double-life as a lethal assassin. So it wasn’t really surprising when WB announced plans to release a tie-in comic book for The Accountant. What is a bit surprising is the tone of the first trailer, which presents an intriguing and off-kilter drama about a man struggling with a vague mental disorder.

‘Justice League’ Casts J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon
Just last week Oscar winner J.K. Simmons commented on fans hoping he’d return as J. Jonah Jameson in Marvel’s new Spider-Man reboot. Simmons diplomatically said, “I’ll never close the door on anything.” Well, this may slam, lock and barricade that door. The Whiplash actor has just been cast as Commissioner Gordon in Warner Bros.’ two-part Justice League movie.

The Meddler received some pretty positive reviews when it premiered at TIFF last year, promising a charming and poignant new film from Lorene Scafaria, the filmmaker behind the flawed Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The trailer for her latest effort looks far more interesting, with Susan Sarandon as a persistent mother and recent widow who struggles to bond with her screenwriter daughter, played by Rose Byrne.

J.K. Simmons Heads to ‘La La Land’ for ‘Whiplash’ Director
Following his stunning feature debut with Whiplash, we’ve been excited to see where director Damien Chazelle will go next. That place is La La Land, a new film that reunites the Gangster Squad and Crazy Stupid Love duo of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. But the film has one other reunion up its sleeve: J.K. Simmons will re-team with his Whiplash director for the upcoming project.

J.K. Simmons — along with Michael Keaton — recently parted ways with Kong: Skull Island, but he still has some other (potential) big franchise plans. Simmons was one of the best parts of the mostly not-great Terminator Genisys, fully committing to his role as a frazzled cop and genuinely appearing to have fun with the film, which really needed it. The actor has now revealed that he’s signed on for more Terminator sequels, guaranteeing that if there are more of these movies, we can at least look forward to his part in them.

Universal is on quite a hot streak lately, with four of the top ten movies of 2015 so far including Jurassic World (the biggest movie of the summer), Furious 7, and Pitch Perfect 2. The studio doesn’t have a ton of big-ticket franchises, and they’re really the only major studio that’s not in the superhero game, but the brands they do have, people love. People love Jurassic Park, and the Fast & Furious movies, and those adorable little Minions, whose movie comes out in a couple weeks. People also love King Kong, which is why Universal’s rebooting that franchise as Kong: Skull Island, a new take on the old monster movie about the giant, soulful ape with a thing for blondes.

Throughout the marketing for Terminator Genisys, we haven’t really seen much (if at all) of J.K. Simmons, who appears to play a detective who helps Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor in the upcoming prequel-sequel-alternate timeline-something-or-other. That changes now with a new TV spot in which the recent Oscar-winner features prominently, also offering up some new footage from the film.
