After it was secretly recorded and leaked online following its exclusive unveiling at the San Diego Comic Con last weekend, Warner Bros have now officially released the full and glorious trailer for Suicide Squad.
The movie is written and directed by David Ayer, (Traning Day, Fury), and stars among others Will Smith as Deadshot and Jared Leto as The Joker two members of a special group of super villains which a secret government agency recruits to execute dangerous black ops missions, in exchange for clemency.
There has been a lot of concern by rabid fanboys about the prospect of a Suicide Squad movie but judging from the trailer it looks like they really had nothing to worry about.
Suicide Squad is scheduled for general release on August 5th, 2016.
A fire will rise…along with your pants after you watch this latest trailer for the third and final installment of the Christopher Nolan directed Batman franchise.
Of course there’s a lot more plot reveal in this trailer including an elaborate jail break from a mid-flight plane. July cannot come quick enough.
Above is a feature video for the now cancelled gaming title Gotham By Gaslight, based upon the DC Comic of the same name.
Apparently the game was centred around the adventures of a Victorian styled Batman, battling crime on the cobbled streets of London town while attempting to track down Jack The Ripper and bring him to justice. Game developers Day 1 and THQ pitched the idea of Gotham By Gaslight with concept art and the prototype video above, but for reason they were unsuccessful, which is a great shame as the idea of a steam punk themed Batman game sounds amazing.

We’re a bit late to the party with this post but there’s a good reason. We really, really didn’t want to watch this trailer as our intention was to go in to see this film completely free from any kind of spoilers. Unfortunately we succumbed and although we resent ourselves, we were’nt disappointed either.
Want to know the finer details of the plot? Go read them elsewhere, all we know is Christian Bale is back as The Batman and Tom Hardy plays Bane who is the central villain of this final installment in the Dark Knight franchise. Consider our tickets bought.
Nothing cheapens a legitimate protest over unregulated greed and economic irresponsibility than the involvement of a ridiculously well financed Hollywood blockbuster movie, but that’s exactly what could happen if the latest Batman movie, (The Dark Knight Rises), films at the ongoing Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a rumoured casting notice has been issued to crew outlining a plan to shoot in the cityon the 29th of this month and scenes could include the Occupy Wall Street protests, as urban unrest is one of the main themes latest installment of the Batman franchise.
It’s unclear how protesters would react if cameras for “The Dark Knight Rises” were nearby. A former independent-film director, Nolan wouldn’t seem to have much in common with Wall Street fat cats. But he is overseeing a $250-million production financed by one of the world’s largest media conglomerates.
On the other hand, some demonstrators may find that the film accords with their mission. The casting call says that characters will inhabit “a city besieged by crime and corruption.” That’s almost like a description you’d read on a, well, Occupy Wall Streeter’s protest sign.
We’re hoping this is just another of director Christopher Nolan’s infamous red herrings for throwing the press off the scent of his latest movie, as it would be pretty crude and unseemly to hijack a legitimate protest about financial greed with a multi million dollar movie about a wealthy capitalist who spends his spare time running around in a cape and tight fitting spandex.

Set phaser to shitters! Here is your first look, (and by look we mean around five seconds of actual footage from the film), at what will become the most over hyped movie of a generation – The Dark Knight Rises.
The third and final Christopher Nolan installment of the Batman franchise will be released next year and will feature Tom Hardy as muscle bound Bane and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
