YouTube will soon put their ‘stars’ in films

We all love (or tolerate) those end-of-year YouTube montages, which highlight the best viral videos in addition to various creators who have made a name on YouTube. those creators are a lynchpin for success, as various other platforms are trying to steal them away to create instant viewership. In their latest attempt to encourage those creators to stick around, YouTube will “release several feature length films over the next two years, all driven by YouTube stars”. The films will naturally debut on YouTube.

First look at Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

First look at Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

The director of the forthcoming movie Suicide Squad, about a group of DC comics supervillains sent on a special mission by the government, tweeted a photo of Jared Leto on Friday giving us our first look at the actor's take on the Joker. The last time we saw Batman's arch-nemesis on film was when he was played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. This new look gives the impression of a villain just as terrifying, but also unique from the previous portrayal.

‘Warcraft’ movie pushed to summer 2016

We’ve known for a while now that a movie based on World of Warcraft was in the works, but those who are eager to see it will have to wait a wee bit longer.

Previously the movie was scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 11, 2016, but now with the schedule change it has been bumped a few months ahead to June 10.

The Avengers Age of Ultron Spider-Man scene that wasn’t

The Avengers Age of Ultron Spider-Man scene that wasn’t

First of all - there is no post-credits scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron at all. None. There is, however, a very clever hoax being delivered to the web this week courtesy of one serious hoaxer. How exactly they created the sequence you're about to see, we do not know - but it's fairly believable. Especially since this is the quality at which most "post credits sequences" are delivered these days, generally speaking. And it wouldn't make much sense for Marvel to reboot Spider-Man like this AGAIN, would it?

Netflix’s library to get shakeup on May 1

Netflix regularly purges content from its library and replaces it with new content -- this is generally a bittersweet moment, in that there's a good chance something you enjoyed will disappear, but that something you'd like to watch will be incoming. It is that time again, with May 1 marking the start of more content being added, as well as the start of a bunch of content being removed. Amongst those that are outbound is Skyfall and RoboCop, and inbound are a load of new things including Zombeavers.

Transformers 5 movie confirmed, expected for 2017

Transformers 5 movie confirmed, expected for 2017

Yesterday it was confirmed that a fifth Transformers movie will be produced, expanding the franchise yet again with what will hopefully be a reversal of the progressively disappointing film series. The confirmation was given during a Hasbro earnings call yesterday during which the company’s CEO Brian Goldner said the movie was expected to hit theaters in 2017. The movie itself hasn’t yet begun production — in fact, there’s not even yet a story in place, though it has been teased that we could end up seeing a storyline from any part of the Transformers’ history.

Jurassic World full trailer released: watch this madness

Jurassic World full trailer released: watch this madness

The next Jurassic Park movie - Jurassic World - is going to be truly nuts. More nuts than Jurassic Park III - and that was completely nuts. What you're about to see is the first full-length "global" trailer for the film with full-on plot details and more Star Lord - I mean "Owen Grady" than you can handle. Because Chris Pratt is still Chris Pratt, and his jokes are tendered to his fabulous down-to-earth ability to make you giggle. But the velociraptors used as hunting dogs - that's not a joke. That's for real.

Pantone names a new color after Dispecable Me’s Minions

Pantone names a new color after Dispecable Me’s Minions

You know a pop culture thing is a BIG thing when even serious business institutions get into it as well. That definitely sounds like the situation here when the Pantone Color Institute, which is responsible for one of the most popular color palettes in the industry, has just added "Minion Yellow" as its newest named color, designed after the lovable yellow creatures from the Despicable Me films. This is quite big when you consider that Pantone has not named any new color since 2012, and the first one it does it names after fictional characters.

“Reimagined” Fantasic Four trailer goes dimension-hopping

“Reimagined” Fantasic Four trailer goes dimension-hopping

The comic book world is known, in fact notorious, for its reboots and retcons, and revisions, sometimes not exactly coherent. And it seems that the trait has bled into their big screen adaptations as well. Fantastic Four will be screening less than four months after Avengeers: Age of Ultron, but 20th Century Fox wants viewers to know that FF will be just as a big a thing. Except, it won't be your regular Fantastic Four thing. Well, the Thing is there and the rest of the cast, but things will be slightly different.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ official teaser trailer goes live

‘Batman vs. Superman’ official teaser trailer goes live

Earlier this week Zack Snyder confirmed that the Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer would be launching soon, but someone else trumped his claim and leaked the trailer even sooner. It had hard-coded foreign language subtitles and was in exceptionally poor quality, and Warner Bros. moved to get the video pulled down quickly. As with all things on the Internet, though, a handful of copies would appear every time a copy was pulled, and so the studio did what many before it have elected to do: officially released the trailer sooner than it had originally planned.
