For the most part, critics came out swingin with guns blazin' after seeing Suicide Squad in early screenings. Some of the reviews were so harsh, we've seen particularly inspired DC fans band together to try and set in motion a petition to straight up squash Rotten Tomatoes.

Well, at least Warner Bros. enjoyed it, right?

“It bested anything that we could have expected,” Jeff Goldstein, executive vice president over at Warner Bros. told Variety. “The marketing campaign was brilliant and the performances by the cast, starting with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, were just extraordinary. They’re fun and wicked and fans enjoy it.”

The guy who has plans to sue Warner Bros. with his brother (who happens to be a lawyer) kicks off his fiery, inspired rant with just the kind of intro you'd expect...

My brother (who is a lawyer) and I are going to sue WB and DC for false advertising, misleading visual images and gaining a profit from us and millions others due to these acts. Our case has been accepted. We begin 11.08.16

And then he dives deep into all his reasoning for this madness...

"Movie Trailers are like food menus, they give you a preview of what your gonna get. If you look at a McDonald's menu and you choose to get your favourite burger, presented/showcased in a nice picture with pickles, chicken, mild cheese(you're favourite, in-fact...that's the only reason you're getting this burger...because you love mild cheese). So you use your hard worked money to pay for this burger, you get the burger, but only to find out that...this isn't the burger you ordered. Yes it has pickles and chicken...but...it doesn't have mild cheese...it has regular cheese.

Suicide Squad trailers showcased several SPECIFIC Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those SPECIFIC SCENES that WB/DC had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: When Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says, ''let me show you my toys'', when Joker punchs the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ''BYE BYE!''. Non of these scenes were in the movie. I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads...and they didn't show them to me. Adding to this, they were also 2 specific Katana scenes they advertised that were also the reason I wanted to go watch the movie. These scenes were: Katana's eyes going black, and a slow motion shot of her and her sword taking souls...in a smokey kind of style. These scenes were advertised several times in the 1st trailer and many TV ads...but they didn't show it to me in the movie. I wasted alot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me and all of us saying, ''hey, check out our preview! this will all be in our movie, come watch it on the 5th!!''. All lies. I told the theatre about this unjust act and said I didn't get what I came here to see...can I have my money back. They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I'm now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the 160 pounds of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland.

If you advertise something...give me what you have advertised. Period. This is becoming a habbit with movie studios, showing epic scenes in trailers...but their never shown in the movies. It's unjust.

I just want to say, join me if you feel the same way. Let's stop this nonsense of false bullshitery...and don't let them bribe you with their ''deluxe premium special directors gold extended edition supreme cut'' nonsense. You should get what they advertised as their first theatre showing and what you have paid for based on what they have showed you in their advertisements.

Our court process will begin on 11/08/16 this week."


Why so litigious, bruh?....



Alriiighty then...just wait for Jared Leto to lash out at this ridiculousness somehow.

Warner Bros. might make a Dungeons and Dragons movie

Warner Bros. wants to take the imagination out of the game.

The studio announced Aug. 3 that it has a script and producers lined up to make a new Dungeons & Dragons movie.

Mashable has the story:

The announcement signals the resolution of a rights-holders lawsuit between Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast LLC and Sweetpea Entertainment, each of which will be involved in the project. What it does not signal: any sort of guarantee that a Dungeons & Dragons movie will actually get made.

Warner Bros. has had enormous success with the fantasy genre, through franchises like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings — but those were literary adaptations with rabid, built in followings and established characters. Dungeons & Dragons, first published in 1974, went on to become the world's most popular role-playing game — but the cultural relevance of real-world RPGs went into staggering decline with the rise of video- and massively multiplayer online games.



You might remember that they tried this back in 2000 with a weird, lame movie of a thing with Thora Birch, Jeremy Irons and Marlon Wayans. It only has 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and dragged in a scant $7.3 million on its opening weekend.

That won't detract from the enthusiasm.

Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman talked some marketing talk in the circulated press release.

"We are so excited about bringing the world of Dungeons & Dragons to life on the big screen. This is far and away the most well-known brand in fantasy, which is the genre that drives the most passionate film followings. D&D has endless creative possibilities, giving our filmmakers immense opportunities to delight and thrill both fans and moviegoers new to the property."



We should also not ever let you forget about the 1982 film Mazes and Monsters. Born out of the cultural panic that D&D would turn your children into murdering psychopaths, this gem stars Tom Hanks in his first leading role.

Oh, and it's available on YouTube if you have the inclination.



After the popularity of The Avengers in 2012, the floodgates have opened on big tent-pole Superhero Universes. To compete with Marvel/Disney, Sony is going ahead with a Spider-Man Universe, Fox has their X-Men starting to make solo films and Warner Brothers is teaming up with DC to bring every Justice League member they can find to the big screen.

Today we learned WB's exact line-up. With 10 confirmed movies from 2016-2020, they're shaping up to be Marvel's biggest competition.
