A new trailer for Superhero Face Punch debuted on Jimmy Kimmel last night—that’s Marvel’s backyard but Kimmel and Ben Affleck are pals—and for the first time, I am totally on board with this movie. It looks RIDICULOUS, like the grimdark, “no jokes”, moody-broody DC hero treatment has come all the way around to straight up camp and I am 100% into that. Full Story

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly is being teased online, and the issue is dedicated to Captain America: Civil War. Cap, Iron Man, and Black Panther are on the cover—and WTF with putting “meow” next to Black Panther?

Yesterday’s gossip highlight came to courtesy of Leonardo DiCaprio – the joke about him getting f-cked by a fake bear in The Revenant. Click here for a refresher. The headline got so out of hand that Fox had to release a statement clarifying that Leo does not in fact get humped and pumped by the digital Ursa Major, telling Entertainment Weekly Full Story

So this is what we’re talking about today. Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant. And according to The Drudge Report, he’s violated during his bear attack. Multiple times. The explicit moment from Oscar winning director Alejandro Inarritu has caused maximum controversy in early screenings. Full Story

Adam Sandler’s “movie”, The Ridiculous 6, premiered last night in advance of its 12/11 release on Netflix. I will be reviewing this eyeball garbage because I’m a masochist, but also because I feel you can’t really sh*t on a thing until you’ve seen it, so I’m going to have to live this hell to determine if Sandler’s string of (alleged) cinematic crimes Full Story

When I do catch up with them it’s always a good time. Full Story
