Apparently, he started talking up his desire to be a full-time producer six months ago. Full Story

It’s the season of giving.

You know that description of Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when Harry is post-life in the way station between places? “…Raw and rough…it had been left, unwanted, stuffed out of sight, struggling for breath.” Voldemort, defeated, provides the most apt description of Justice League, a messy movie which never manages to choose a path, and feels as though it was abandoned as everyone agreed to just write it off as the last vestige of Zack Snyder’s misfiring creative vision for the DC cinematic universe. Full Story

Justice League opens tonight. Sarah’s review of the movie is coming up this afternoon.

Justice League is a week away. So the North American press push for the movie should be underway. Here’s Ben Affleck arriving in New York, all smiles with Lindsay Shookus.

The big question mark in November’s box office is what is going to happen with Justice League. We’ve already seen the numbers Thor: Ragnarok put up, and now the question is, how much more can one month support?
