Last week, we proposed a series of Marvel Comics stories that you can show your friends in an effort to both get them into comics, and clearly communicate what the major characters are all about without having to watch a dozen movies. This week, we're going to do the same for the characters that we'll be seeing in this November's Justice League, the latest chapter of the DC Extended Universe. So, far, the DCEU has had only three films: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad. This June will see the arrival of the highly anticipated Wonder Woman, before the big team-up film arrives in November. While that doesn't represent nearly as much of a commitment as starting the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first...

Dwayne Johnson has stepped up his activity as a producer in the last couple of years. He serves as executive producer of his HBO dramatic series Ballers, for example, as well as other television shows, including CNN's Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History, which just debuted.

In 2014 Star Wars fans got some bombshell news. J.J. Abrams would not be returning to the franchise after The Force Awakens. Looper director Rian Johnson was taking up the mantle to direct Star Wars: Episode VIII. And not only that, but Johnson was also going to write the treatment for Episode IX. That was encouraging news. Changing director wasn't really huge news considering each film of the original trilogy was directed by someone different. But Johnson's involvement in both VIII and IX made it seem like a grand plan for where the story was going had emerged. Sadly, however, it turns out that's not the case. There most likely is indeed a grand plan in place (Lucasfilm has an entire division devoted to just keeping track of where Star Wars, from movies to games to...

The Great Outdoors is one of those movies that's fine for remaking. Although it likely has fans, especially those loyal to its stars Dan Aykroyd and John Candy and screenwriter John Hughes, for the most part it's a forgotten comedy that's almost 30 years old and hasn't aged into certain classic status. There's no use in complaining, then, that there is in fact a remake in the works. Deadline is reporting that Kevin Hart will star in the new version, which is being rewritten by relative newcomer Randall Green (TV's Billions). It hasn't been revealed whether he'll be filling the part of Candy, who played a man trying to enjoy a lakeside cabin vacation with his family, or Aykroyd, the rude brother-in-law who shows up unannounced with his family...
