    How ‘Justice League’ Became a ‘Frankenstein’ (Exclusive)

    “Justice League” had a lot of enemies: a looming corporate merger, a family tragedy, an internal clash between light and dark themes. Specifically, the weird, computer-generated look of his face — just one byproduct of the film’s rushed schedule.  Here, according to insiders, is the story of how “Justice League” just ran out of time. Despite the assembled might of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and The Flash, “Justice League” opened well below studio expectations, at $96 million. It’s easy to forget now, but the disappointment of “Justice League” began with success.

    The best and worst director's cuts in movie history

    Films are getting longer, but that’s only because audiences’ appetites have only gotten more voracious. Zack Snyder is a filmmaker who will not be constrained by namby-pamby running times. Snyder’s first superhero epic was his most well-received but it wasn’t until Snyder released the Director’s Cut that 24 minutes of essential material was restored to the run-time, including the death of Hollis, extra Rorschach and some crucial Comedian flashbacks.

    James Cameron cites Zack Snyder as an inspiration

After recalling that he’s “studied the masters,” before then citing David Lean, Alfred Hitchcock, and Stanley Kubrick as examples, Cameron admitted that he goes “to school everyday” to seek inspiration from other films.

    Biggest movie plot holes of 2016

    The tangled and twisted ‘X-Men’ universe is so full of plot holes and parallel timelines it’s impossible to join the dots. By far the biggest plot hole in ‘Apocalypse’ is the fact that none of the characters seem to have aged at all – the film is set in 1983, 21 years after the events of ‘X-Men: First Class’, but the cast have barely aged a day.

    Five bad movies that fooled us with amazing trailers

    A good trailer can be worth its weight in gold to a studio, and it can also be more trouble than you might expect. Just ask Suicide Squad’s David Ayer, who according to industry reports was sidelined during editing of the poorly-reviewed supervillain smackdown in favour of a cut made by the company behind the film’s high-octane, Queen and The Sweet-soundtracked promos.
