Batman vs. Darth Vader… lives up to the title.

No, really. That’s how Batman would do it. That’s precisely how Batman would do it. Because he’s the goddamn Batman.

So, they’re gonna do a Hawkeye series on Disney+.

This works for me.

It’s from the comics and everything, and Marvel has gotten pretty good at panning for gold there, so I am cautiously optimistic. I’m also subscribing to Disney+ anyway, so there’s that. I know I’m going to end up watching this whether I was optimistic or not.

Looks like the Dumbo movie ain’t doing so hot.

I understand that these live-action flicks generally have been bringing in the cash for the Mouse, but I’m wondering whether Disney went all the way back to Dumbo this time because they wanted to muddle the copyright waters. This dude is saying no, and he raises some fair points, but: I still dunno. I could see a remake of Cinderella, because it was a proof of concept; but why Dumbo? It’s not really a popular movie today, is it? Classic, sure — but popular?

The ‘Addams Family’ Teaser trailer.

I cannot tell. I legitimately cannot tell if the new Addams Family is going to be a good movie, or not.

The Mortal Engines Honest Trailer.

Brutal, but presumably fair. I didn’t actually see Mortal Engines, and apparently neither did almost anybody else. I probably should have, but this Honest Trailer raises a compelling argument as to why I was probably right not to, all along.

…And a part of me is going ‘Dammit.’ It was, perhaps, just not gonzo enough.

The ‘possibly endearingly stupid’ Stuber trailer.

I am not sure how I feel about this movie.

Stuber would normally just be stupid, except that people get shot and things blow up under logically questionable circumstances. ‘Logically questionable’ seems to be a major theme of this movie, in fact. I can’t help but wonder if that’s a good sign.

Apparently out July 12th.

Shazam! overachieves with $53 million opening weekend.

I will spare you the lightning jokes.

The magic word at the box office this weekend was “Shazam!” Warner Bros.’ latest DC superhero adventure easily topped charts in North America, pocketing $53 million when it debuted in 4,217 venues.

Buoyed by positive reviews, “Shazam!” arrived ahead of expectations, which anticipated a start around $40 million to $45 million.

So, hey, Season 2 of the Tick is up.

Could have sworn that the premiere for Season 2 of The Tick was tomorrow, but then it’s Friday already over a large portion of the planet, so go figure, right? Or maybe it’s just Episode One, and the rest drops tomorrow. Either way: SPOOOOOOOON!
