Wonder Woman movie sets revealed in new video

Up until now no filmed footage has been seen from the Wonder Woman sets, but  recently an Italian news station showed footage from the sets of Themyscira and it looks pretty good.

The local Italian new station didn't show any of the actual filming, but it did show that Themyscira will be filmed on a real location and not in a green screen room. It did also show viewers what they can expect from the home of the Amazons. Viewers can get a good look at the architecture, some weapons, and something that looks like a market.

Those who understands the Italian language might get more of a glimpse into the new Wonder Woman movie, but those of us who don't just gets to enjoy what we can see in the video above.

The Wonder Woman film is scheduled to come out June 23 in 2017

Check out the latest trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

Quite a few new trailers have been released over the week and the latest to come out is the second trailer for TMNT 2. Luckily for us, it's packed with glorious action!

Two years ago the world got the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and this summer the world will get to go a second round with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Out of the Shadows. If the new trailer is anything to go on then the second installment of the TMNT movie franchise will be filled with action, explosions, one-liners, and Megan Fox. What more can the viewers ask for from a TMNT movie?

The new trailer also shows a bit more of Stephen Amell's character Casey Jones and it looks like his training as the Green Arrow paid of.

TMNT 2 is scheduled to release June 3.

The reason for Suicide Squad reshoots revealed

Rumors suggested that the reshoot for the next DC film Suicide Squad was to add more humor to the film, but according director David Ayer it is NOT the case.

With Batman v Superman getting surprisingly low scores in the US, rumors surfaced that the reshooting of Suicide Squad was to add more humor to lighten up the film up and make it a bit less serious than Batman v Superman.

Apparently, that is not the case. David Ayer took to Twitter to officially state that the reshooting has nothing to do with adding more humor and making it a lighter film.

AMC Entertainment CEO looking to allow texting in movie theaters

A recent interview with Variety and AMC Entertainment's CEO, Adam Aron,  has brought up some interesting talking points for the future of moviegoers and their theaters.

The biggest and strangest, answers Aron gave was involved with texting being allowed in certain theaters. Now as this is appalling to most moviegoers, including myself, Aron justifies his belief of this "allowed texting" with the fact that 'millennials' can't be told, "to turn off their cellphone."

Yes. When you tell a 22-year-old to turn off the phone, don’t ruin the movie, they hear please cut off your left arm above the elbow. You can’t tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That’s not how they live their life.

Movies typically run 1:30 – 2 hours long, which means if someone can't put their phone away for that long, if the specific theater allows it, you will be seeing a lot of  little bright lights popping up all over the theater. However, Aron understands that this most likely annoy most consumers.

At the same time, though, we’re going to have to figure out a way to do it that doesn’t disturb today’s audiences. There’s a reason there are ads up there saying turn off your phone, because today’s moviegoer doesn’t want somebody sitting next to them texting or having their phone on.

Aron also notes that these texting allowed theaters probably won't be certain sections in the theater, but rather specific auditoriums altogether.

That’s one possibility. What may be more likely is we take specific auditoriums and make them more texting friendly.

If these texting allowed theaters are to come to AMC, you could expect a lot of people being upset. This is where the recent news of the Screening Room would kick in pretty effectively.The service is supported by many of the big Hollywood directors including Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, the Ron Howard/Brian Grazer team, Martin Scorsese, J.J. Abrams, Taylor Hackford, and Frank Marshall

The service will offer users the ability to stream movies that are still in theaters in the comfort of your home. But of course, it comes with a caveat, the price for a single movie will cost you up to $50 and you will need a $150 specific stream box to make it happen. However, you will be able to get the movies on day one of its release and have access to it for 48 hours.

How would you guys feel about texting being allowed in theaters? Would you want the Screening Room to become an official thing? Let us know in the comments below!

The Flash movie loses its Director over "Creative Differences"

It may still be two years away, but The Flash movie has just hit a major snag. The movie's Director Seth Grahame-Smith has left the project citing "creative differences" as the cause. 

Grahame-Smith is known for his work on Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as an author and screenwriter but The Flash was due to be his directorial debut. Ezra Miller's role remains unchanged as the movie is still two years away from release on March 16, 2018.

The movie will still use Grahame-Smith's script which features Barry Allen as "The Fastest Man Alive", who made a brief cameo in Batman v. Superman.

New Warcraft movie clip shows off the rebel

The hype for the Warcraft movie is real. Legendary's epic movie releases on June 10 and now they have started releasing short character trailers. First up is Durotan from the Frostwolves.

"The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home."

This is where it all began, this is before Warcraft and World of Warcraft. These are the events that forever changed Azeroth.

There will surely be more of these character trailer before the release of the Warcraft movie.

Rumor: The Green Lantern Corps movie has found its director

If you were among the many who were disappointed by 2011's Green Lantern movie, nobody would blame you if your trust was shaken. But the bridge may be slowly being rebuilt with this latest rumor, if it is indeed true. According to Umberto Gonzalez, co-host of Heroic Insider, George Miller is allegedly rumored to be directing DC's Green Lantern Corps movie.

The Green Lantern Corps is due to release in 2020 with many other movies including both Justice League movies, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg releasing in between. No doubt Ryan Reynolds left a sour taste in many fans mouths, so it's clear that DC is steering the attention towards other heroes until they feel confident enough in the brand to reintroduce it to the public.

The Green Lantern Corps movie was revealed back in January during a primetime special event called DC Films: Dawn of the Justice League. My gut tells me that since DC can't afford another meltdown like 2011's Green Lantern movie, they will look to snag an established and respected name to help return the Green Lantern to prominence.

The Joker is no joke in the latest Suicide Squad Blitz trailer

There are still those who are skeptical towards DC's Suicide Squad, however the latest trailer should eliminated at least some of that skepticism.

Those who follow the TV show Arrow know what sort of person Amanda Waller is, since Arrow already gave its viewers a taste of what a Suicide Squad film could look like. It is fair to say that the latest Suicide Squad trailer looks promising, it also gives viewers an awaited second glimpse of The Joker who looks like a madman.

Perhaps even critics will like this DC film since it seems to be closer to the average Marvel film instead of the dark and gritty DC universe many of us are used to.

Some fans may be skeptical about having Will Smith as Floyd Lawton after Michael Rowe's portrayal of the world's most deadliest and most accurate sharpshooter in Arrow. Take a look for yourself and decide. 

While waiting for Suicide Squad's August 5 release fans can go watch the animated Batman: Assault on Arkham film to prepare for the overdose of bad guys in a single sitting.

Robert Downey Jr. says he's up for one more Iron Man movie

He's most likely stating the obvious here, but in an interview with Nightline on ABC News, Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. admitted he'd be up for doing Iron Man 4. The interview took place during a piece on Captain America: Civil War and ABC's Nick Watt managed to get it out of him (though I imagine it wasn't that hard).

"I feel like I could do one more" said Robert Downey Jr.

Check out the full piece below. The chatter about the possibilities for Iron Man 4 begin at 3:55.

We haven't seen an official Iron Man movie for almost three years now since 2013, though the character has been kept relevant through The Avengers films and cameos through various Marvel movies. Iron Man is confirmed to appear in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, so it's already clear that Robert Downey Jr. has no plans of letting his take on Tony Stark go any time soon.

AMC cancels their own plans to allow texting in theaters

It recently came to light that AMC Entertainment was considering allowing texting in their theaters. The reasoning behind the move was the belief that "You can’t tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That’s not how they live their life."

The statement came by CEO Adam Aron, who is now backtracking on that thought.

That idea has quickly been shut down by avid movie goers. AMC has released a statment saying that they were going to listen to their audience and keep the texting ban active.
