Yeah, I saw both. The Voices was creepy in a very dark way, you gotta watch it someday. Adi Shankar is in it, I remember us talking about this guy's work like Dredd and that Venom short a while back.

The first fan reactions are coming in and they're raving about most one thing primarily, Wonder Woman.

No tickets yet cause I imagine I'll wait a few weeks but being the impatient fucker that I am that could change at any second. I've never pre-ordered tickets before, do you do that regularly?

‘Batman V Superman’ London Premiere Sees Heightened Security After Brussels Attack
In the wake of the deadly attacks this morning in Brussels, Warner Bros made a slight adjustment for tonight’s London premiere of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The event went on as planned, though the studio canceled the typical red carpet interviews.

Aside from heavy traffic on the streets of London to reach the venue, the red carpet portion of the premiere felt typical of these types of events at Odeon Leicester Square, though police did appear slightly more on edge outside the theater. It was a full house ahead of the screening.

After the stars walked the red carpet, director Zack Snyder addressed fans from a stage outside.

“You guys are probably aware of the tragic events that happened earlier today in Brussels,” he said to the crowd. “I just want to take a second to say our hearts and thoughts and prayers are with everyone and we want to thank everyone for being here. Can we — can everybody take a second?” He bowed his head slightly, and after a short while, the festive mood returned.
 
Earlier in the day, after the attacks in Brussels, the studio released a statement about its plans for the premiere: “Our hearts go out to the victims of recent terrorist attacks, their families and the communities impacted around the world. Rather than yield to terror, we’ve decided to join the film’s fans and move forward with the London premiere of Batman V Superman this evening.”

The team from the film is here including stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill along with Snyder. When I passed through Leicester Square last night, the red carpet was already rolled out with monitors lining the area, spelling out “Batman” and “Superman” in a V, being tested by technicians.
 
This premiere follows events held in China, Mexico and New York. There were no plans for an event in Brussels, where the Kinepolis and UGC cinema chains shuttered for the day today, pending further news. The film is still due to be released in Belgium tomorrow, though it remains to be seen if the theaters will open and, indeed, if folks will venture out.

Following the deadly terrorist attacks Paris in November, cinemas in the French capital were closed for much of the weekend, although the UGC and MK2 circuits opened on the Sunday. The next weekend, as Belgium widened its search for Salah Abdeslam, one of the suspects in the Paris attacks — who was ultimately apprehended there just days ago — cinemas and other public gathering places were shut at the urging of authorities.

Preview screenings and press junkets for a handful of films were also postponed last year in Paris, and some films deemed sensitive were held back from release.

Sad day in Brussels today, more security is necessary. Tragedies are either at airport or at the movies nowadays, it's really sad. People don't feel safe anywhere anymore. People are sick of these attacks.

I think it's time to put metal detectors at the movies too.

@WyldeMan wrote:No tickets yet cause I imagine I'll wait a few weeks but being the impatient fucker that I am that could change at any second. I've never pre-ordered tickets before, do you do that regularly?

I was just asking, I never buy tickets online either. Usually when I go see a movie, everybody has already seen it and less than 10 people are there with me. lol! So, buying tickets early isn't necessary. I don't actually get why people do that. It's the same thing with pre-ordering video games. Rolling Eyes

Reviews are coming in, they say it's really good. I've only read non spoiler reviews. They say it's much better than MOS. Cool

The only thing anybody seems to be talking about right now is Wonder Woman. They also praise Batfleck of course but I think the clear winner of BvS will be WW.

DC has finally given the world what they wanted, a woman warrior in leather kicking ass with a lasso.

And hey, Marvel will be right along in a few more years too.

Same, everyone seems to be liking WW and I'm glad. I know there was hate on Gal in the beginning but it's cool that people liked her.

BUT.......I'm reading/watching a couple of negatives on the movie too, non spoilers of course. Critics on RottenTomatoes are not being too kind to it either.

I noticed over 126k audience members have rated this at 78% but 123 critics have called this Rotten. Critics are fucktards and they were planning to rip this apart long before it ever came out. I could give a damn what they say, I loved MoS and I know I'll love this. The critics can go back to blowing Disney's dick.

Plenty of fans crushing it. General consensus is they should have ditched this, started with Wonder Woman, then gone straight into the Justice League.

I'll go check it out in the next few days.

‘BvS’ KOs ‘Avengers’, ‘Ultron’, ‘Dark Knight’ & ‘Iron Man 3’ With $27.7M Preview
Whatever war of words Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lost with critics with a 30% Rotten Tomatoes score, it’s making up for nine-fold at the box office. Last night,  Zack Snyder’s Dark Knight and Son of Jor’El smackdown had a great Thursday at the B.O. reaping $27.7M, punching out the preview cash made by Disney/Marvel’s Age of Ultron ($27.6M from 7PM shows), Avengers ($18.7M, midnight) and Iron Man 3 ($15.6M, 9PM) as well as Warner Bros. 2008 midnight shows from Dark Knight ($18.5M).

BvS Thursday night also drives Universal’s Furious 7’s $15.7M preview from a year ago off the record books, becoming the best pre-Easter preview. F7’s Thursday repped 23% of its opening Good Friday figure of $67.4M. That number was the best pre-summer opening day before turning into the best April and Easter opening of all-time with $147.2M. Despite BvS’ reviews, weekend projections continue to be in the $160M+ range. Some believed that if the reviews had hit 60% rotten, that the pic’s FSS would surge to $175M, however, last night’s ticket sales indicate that the best is yet to come. Essentially, Friday could potentially generate over 90% additional ticket sales on top of last night’s results for BvS, when you consider that Avengers: Age of Ultron made 33% of its $84.4M first day from Thursday showtimes starting at 7PM, while Avengers grossed $18.7M or 23% of its $80.8M opening day from midnight previews.

Typically such superhero pics are critic-proof (Man of Steel‘s 56% rotten wasn’t impeded by any negative ink posting a $116.6M opening). Star Wars: The Force Awakens threw the preview B.O. bar up to all-time high of $57M back in December, and among superhero movies, The Dark Knight Rises midnight shows best BvS’ Thursday with $30.6M. BvS Imax hubs made $3.6M, the best pre-Easter for the format ever.

Love me some Amy Adams.

Seems like a cool chick to hangout with.


Wonder if she had a gin and tonic again?

That's what she requested back in 2013, when her, Henry and Russell was on Graham Norton.

Promoting Man of Steel.

After hearing people's thoughts on the movie, I think it's time to replace Snyder and take this in a different direction. I've heard NOTHING good on Eisenberg as Lex and something about not getting Superman right. Evil or Very Mad

I think the biggest problem with the film as a whole is the editing. It's bad but at the end it's fucking terrible.

Batman uses guns and kills. That doesn't sit well with me at all. Snyder was criticized for being fetishistic in his adherence to the comic with Watchmen and here he has a Batman killing people. Very disappointed.

I'll post a better review later on, maybe after I see it again, but not in as big of a hurry as I expected to be

Yes, Batman started out in the first comics carrying a gun and regularly killing criminals by shooting them, strangling them, knocking them off buildings, knocking them into vats of acid (not the Joker, but another dude in the first Batman story), pits, etc.

The rule against killing came later.

Batman "kind of" killed the Joker in the 1989 film Batman, stating his intention by saying outright "I'm going to kill you," and then trying the Joker's leg to a statue that yanked him from a helicopter and sent him plummeting to the ground, dead.

In Batman Returns, Batman overtly kills two people: he turns the batmobile around and blasts the jet engine onto one of Penguin's circus freaks, burning the man alive. Later, he sticks a bomb down the pants of a Strong Man and kicks the guy into a hole where the bomb -- and the man -- blow up. Batman grins at this killing, by the way.

Do you know who you're talking to? I know about his origins and the no kill rule being a product of the Comics Code. But that's the thing, they turned a limitation into an important character trait that makes sense.

‘Batman V Superman’ Kicks ‘Avengers’ For Best Superhero Global Debut

Warner Bros. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t beat The Avengers  in the states ($207.4M), but worldwide they punched out the Marvel hero team with a $424M debut. That beats Avengers’ $392.5M opening, and is the fourth highest bow of all-time globally, even outpegging Universal’s Furious 7‘s $397.7M.

The Burbank, CA-based studio needed this opening like a guy in the desert thirsting for water, particularly  after a 2015 fraught with big budget disasters like Pan, Jupiter Ascending, In the Heart of the Sea, and Man From U.N.C.L.E. Obviously, BvS is another big win for franchised properties on the big screen. That’s what stands out here as the winning formula next to last year’s previous pricey ambitions greenlit by Warner Bros.

As one rival studio executive exclaimed today after looking at BvS’ success, “I don’t think anyone read the reviews!” Advance ticket sales firms are reporting that BvS is already generating 30% more repeat business than they normally see. Late night shows are even bigger than Warner Bros. calculated. Originally, they thought BvS made $49M yesterday, but when they woke up this morning, its second day take moved to $50.8M.

He kills? Fuck! I don't like that at all. I guess people weren't exaggerating on that trailer. I thought it was a special weapon he used against Doomsday.

The biggest issue I read was also the editing. They are praising the cinematography and action though.

Ohhhhhh you people are killing me with this one, killing me like all those before that Batman has. Indirectly of course, since planting a bomb and walking away means you're not responsible.

Terrorists could use the Batman defense by you people and your logic.... Evil or Very Mad

Millions of fan boys are crying around the interwebs right now how Batman kills so the movie was ruined for them. The same people who cried when Supes killed in MoS. I look forward to hearing this complaint many more through the rest of Snyder's long tenure at the helm because it means he's making the movies I want to see.

Is the issue that he isn't shown struggling with any moral
Dilemma?

Does Batfleck appear to be getting off on it?

Terrorists could use the Batman defense by you people and your logic.... Evil or Very Mad

Millions of fan boys are crying around the interwebs right now how Batman kills so the movie was ruined for them. The same people who cried when Supes killed in MoS. I look forward to hearing this complaint many more through the rest of Snyder's long tenure at the helm because it means he's making the movies I want to see.

I haven't watched it yet buy killing someone depending of the situation is ok like in MOS. That one I completely supported 100%, fuck what the fan boys think. Realistically, he did the right thing.

No, the issue seems to be geeks on the interwebs and critics everywhere crying foul that Batman doesn't kill ever when clearly those people have no real knowledge of Batman.

I understood when they took issue when Supes did it in MoS because he didn't have a history of it ever but Batman has always had blood soaked hands, he was born in blood and lived that way until people got sensitive and said he couldn't kill so they tried to retconn everything that came before. It doesn't bother me that he kills because this is the wise old battle hardened Batman.

I haven't heard anybody mention Batfleck's reactions to his kills just that he kills.

Zack Snyder Reveals Christopher Nolan's Role In The [SPOILER] Of [SPOILER] In BATMAN v SUPERMAN

Spoiler:

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder reveals Christopher Nolan's role in the movie's shocking ending and talks in great detail about both that and what lies in store for Justice League.

Fans are so wrapped up in bickering about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's critical and commercial response that no one seems to be discussing the fact that the movie featured the freaking Death of Superman! While we all know he'll return in Justice League, his demise at the hands of Doomsday was still very powerful and a moment sure to be remembered for a long time to come. Talking to Collider recently, director Zack Snyder revealed that he initially talked to executive producer Christopher Nolan about his decision to take the Man of Steel out of the equation. "It was pretty early, and [Christopher] Nolan and I had long conversation about it, a really great, sort of philosophical conversation about it. He was really cool because he played an amazing devil’s advocate about why not to do it, and then in the end was like, ‘No you’re right, it’s better to do it.’" So Nolan was initially sceptical of the idea, but what about Warner Bros.? "The studio was like, ‘What?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah but, how about I called the movie Dawn of Justice?’, and they’re like ‘Okay, okay, I like what you’re doing, I see what you’re doing.’"

In the video above, Snyder talks more about his reasoning behind killing off Superman, including the fact that he considered having the hero live, but taken out of the equation in some way in order to allow Batman to assemble the Justice League. Going back to why he decided Superman had to die though, the director added: "I thought for the evolution of Superman’s character, there’s a crucible that he has to go through to really embrace his humanity or find what is the ultimate thing about being human? The ultimate thing you face is your mortality, and that’s a thing that I think is really cool about this."

Batman v Superman ends with the hero's return teased as the dirt on his coffin starts to rise, but why include that moment rather than letting moviegoers remain under the impression that the Man of Steel is a goner? "I’m gonna say this: the second you do the first part of it, the death and resurrection are the same thing in a weird way. You have to know. The reason I wanted to do it the way we did it is because I don’t want the audience completely off the hook with it. They still have to go like, ‘What the [frick]? Are you kidding me?’. There’s a way to signal towards a more definitive resurrection concept, but I didn’t wanna do that because I want that to be real for them when they see it, I want the experience to be real and then the sort of need to be real later on. Suffice it to say there is a plan, but that’s gonna be—you need to wait and see."

When I read that article it was the very first mention of this major event, everybody is so busy across the interwebs bitching about Batman killing that nobody is even talking about the damned movie and this seems like a massive event to not mention.

Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition To Be Released July 16th


Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrived in theaters today so that means it's already time to start looking forward to the blu-ray/DVD release.

According to Amazon, the release date of Dawn of Justice's blu-ray sets is set for July 16, 2016, about four months after its theatrical release. It is already available for pre-order.

If the blu-ray isn't enough, there are not one, but two different collector's editions of the film. Each comes with its very own statue. One comes with Ben Affleck's Batman and the other with Henry Cavill's Superman. The film will be included in both editions, in both 2D an 3D.

The home theater release will include 30 minutes of extra scenes from the already 2 hour and 41 minute film and be an R-rated cut as opposed to the theatrical PG-13.

Snyder Reveals Deleted Scenes Included on R-Rated “Ultimate Cut”

While the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is finally upon us, there are still even more secrets about the film yet to be unveiled. Warner Bros. announced a few weeks ago that an extended, R-rated cut of the film will be getting the Blu-ray treatment later this year, with director Zack Snyder going so far as to refer to that version of the film as his “director’s cut.” This isn’t simply a case of a studio double-dipping—the extended cut of the film runs half an hour longer than the 2 hours and 32 minutes of the theatrical cut and even includes new characters, like the mystery role filled by Jena Malone.

When Steve sat down with Snyder at the recent press day for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he asked the filmmaker about what’s included on this extended cut, which Snyder says they’re now referring to as the “Ultimate Cut”:

“We call it the Ultimate Cut because to me it’s a deeper dive into that world and there are storylines in there that get fleshed out by the longer version… I would say that we didn’t really take out much of the Superman/Batman story because I felt like, you know that’s kind of the movie, but there was some sort of interstitial stuff that surrounds the story, that kind of finishes some of the ideas that we trimmed back, and I think that’s what you get.”
 
Snyder also spoke about the greater level of violence in the film, which earned the Ultimate Cut an R-rating from the MPAA, as well as an alternate version of the ending:

“There’s a little bit of action, there’s a little bit of violence that we trimmed out for the MPAA that we put back. The Batman warehouse rescue, there’s a couple shots of Doomsday that were too intense. Then there’s a little bit longer ending, sort of the ending sequence, and the opening of the movie, the North Africa sequence is really much different.”



Why did this footage come out in the first place? Snyder says the film started to feel too long:

“It was in there until very recently, so all of it’s finished. It was really just a function of time, to be honest. Because the movie’s long now, long-ish—I don’t think it’s long, but when you get over two and a half hours the studio starts getting nervous. I’m not JamesCameron who’s like ‘No it’s three hours, suck it!’, which is cool by the way. I just wanted to try and get it to a length that is work-able.”
 
Perhaps this extended cut helps clarify a few of the film’s more muddled plot points, and as Snyder went on to talk about the “TV version” of his 2009 film Watchmen versus the director’s cut, he hit upon the notion of the studio really pushing for a shorter version of that movie:

“If you watch Watchmen on TNT or whatever, the TV cut, it’s the movie, it’s in there, if you watch it you’re like, ‘Oh okay, I get it,’ but all the edges get knocked off of it by the nature of putting something that’s kind of that rough on TV. In a weird way, the theatrical cut is a step up from that, and then the director’s cut [of Watchmen] is really where it’s at, in my opinion. With a movie like that where I was in a, I don’t wanna say I was in a battle with the studio but I was probably more headstrong on that movie because the material was so important to me. And then they promised me that they would make this director’s cut and that was where the deal was made, I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll get you [the time you want].’ And also a lot of the time of that movie was dictated by IMAX because it was an IMAX release and there was no digital IMAX, it was all prints. That movie, if there’s humidity in the projection booth the film will fall off.”

So does Snyder prefer the “Ultimate Cut” of Batman v Superman over the theatrical, and is this a situation similar to Watchmen where Warner Bros. agreed to put the R-rated cut on Blu-ray if Snyder shortened the theatrical? That’s unclear at this point, and honestly the studio was probably thrilled to have a longer version to put on the Blu-ray regardless because that ups the value of getting the film on home video. Snyder seems to be happy with the version of Batman v Superman that’s in theaters, but it is interesting that Warner Bros. announced the extended R-rated version of BvS so soon before the theatrical cut hit.
