Suicide Squad direcor David Ayer has revealed this maniacal first look at Jared Leto's Joker, and the guy just looks nuts.    The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) April 25, 2015 But a familiar kind of nuts, with the pic giving off a sort of cracked-out throwback to that image from the 1988 graphic novel The Killng Joke.   In The Killing Jake, the Joker is a failed stand-up comedian who runs with the wrong crowd and winds up disfigured after a battle with Batman; chemicals scarring his skin, permanently turning him loony. If that's the version we see in the movie, then know he's definitely not as suave as...

Brad Bird got his start in animation, so it would be totally appropriate for him to include animation in his live-action work. Unfortunately, we never got to see a cartoon Tom Cruise running around in a special sequence of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. And also unfortunately, we won't get to see animated sequences produced for his latest, Tomorrowland, as part of the movie. But we do at least get to see those sequences by themselves, online. These little animated shorts now function as a two-part backstory prequel laying out some alternate history informing the plot of the upcoming feature, which is inspired by the same-named section of Disney's theme parks. Here we learn that Jules Verne, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and Gustave Eiffel came together as a kind of...

The story of Frankenstein, the mad scientist who creates new life out of the reanimated parts of dead people, has been told so many different ways that it feels like a story as old as time. In reality, Mary Shelley's story is a rather young 197 (for comparison, Romeo and Juliet is 427 years old), but it's been approximately 8 minutes since we've seen a new version of it, so we're due for an updating. The latest version is titled Victor Frankenstein, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's all about him. The twist here is that it's primarily about the relationship between the mad doctor and his assistant Igor, played by James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe respectively. And today we've gotten our first look at the pair in their period piece...

Hot off the success of Paranormal Activity, but before that innovative horror movie would spawn its own franchise and countless knockoffs, writer-director Oren Peli made another movie that used found footage and a cast of unknowns to put a new spin on an old source of scares. It was called Area 51, and nobody has seen a thing from it since people first learned Peli was making it way back in 2009. So where has it been for six years? According to a few sources, Peli has been tinkering with it here and there, along with his Paranormal Activity producer Jason Blum. Normally such a long delay between filming and eventual release isn't a good sign, but we'll soon finally find out if Peli is the real deal or a one hit wonder, as Area 51 (his only other movie as a director) is about...

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:   With Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out in a week, you'll want to recap the entire MCU franchise with this comprehensive seven-minute video (via Design Taxi):   See Jurassic World star Chris Pratt compete against six-year-old viral video sensation Noah Ritter (the "apparently" kid) in a dinosaur quiz (via THR):   Want to buy that crashed Star Destroyer seen in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer?

Here's the thing about being a genre film fan: you have to grow a thick skin. It's slightly easier for horror fans, who are bombarded with so much junk on a daily basis that they're more bemused by a bad film than offended. It's far more difficult for fantasy fans, who get a new movie every once in a blue moon and it's usually something abysmal like Seventh Son. Science fiction fans fall somewhere in the middle. We have a lot to love, both in the past and the present, but it's so easy to get under our skin, no matter how thick it is. We tell ourselves that the Star Wars prequels didn't hurt, but oh boy, did they hurt. We rush to the internet to complain about Star Trek Into Darkness because we know more people will see one of the worst Star Trek movies...
