'Silver Linings Batman': The Darkest Hour

Is this what rock bottom looks like? We're now weeks past the announcement that Ben Affleck will play Batman in Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman film and the situation is growing more grim for our hero. He's trying to keep it positive and focus on all of the good that can come from this casting, but cracks are starting to show. For instance, drinking Beefeater and Cutty Sark in unison from a straw. Those are significant cracks. Keep your chin up, drunk guy on Internet!

David Lynch Directs Another Commercial For His Coffee Line

Who knows what he secretly switched our coffee with. Coffee. It's a rite of passage into each new day. Many of us look forward to waking to the deep aromas of a fresh pot. It's the only thing that can get us out of bed. Well, now the associated nightmares will also do the job. David Lynch has made a new commercial for his David Lynch Signature Cup Organic Coffee. It's as moody and foreboding as you'd expect from the director of Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive. I especially like the part where the coffee kills its clone and assumes its identity. The master has done it again.


NBC Taking Another Crack At It With 'Heroes: Reborn' Trailer

Here's hoping things go better this time. Just as they did with Paul Reiser and Michael J. Fox, NBC is hoping to cash in on the name recognition of a once-successful series. Thus, we have the trailer for Heroes: Yeah But Do You Like It Now? The original series headed quickly downhill after a string of good episodes, before stalling out when characters became played out before talent contracts did. But this new Heroes promises to be different while looking exactly the same. Ordinary people develop extraordinary powers while strange symbols that ultimately mean nothing appear all over the world. Hiro is back too. He's used his ability to travel through time to grow a soul patch.


'71' Trailer: Jack O'Connell Once Again Caught Behind Enemy Lines

It's like an Oscar bait version of 'Judgment Night'. Jack O'Connell has eased into a successful groove by playing young soldiers left for dead by their governments. He's drawing rave reviews for his performance in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, and likewise for '71, the directorial debut from Yann Demange. In this film, he once again plays a soldier forced to go through hell in order to return home safely. However, the setting and circumstances are different here. He plays a British soldier lost amongst during violent riots in Belfast, Northern Ireland. With the IRA hunting him down, he must survive the night in a city that wants him dead. It's really just an Oscar bait version of 1993's Judgment Night. Both films are about a likable guy being hunted by the Irish. Here it's the Provisional IRA, there it was Denis Leary.


Take A Look At 'Gotham' Before The Batman

It's the Muppet Babies version of Batman How many times do we need to watch Bruce Wayne's parents get murdered? Lots more I guess, because now there's a series devoted to the immediate fallout of that event that focuses on the earlier days of Gotham City while its defenders and costumed crazies were still Muppet Babies. A Smallville for the Batman universe, if you will. Gotham is anchored by a young Jim Gordon, the rookie officer who actually gives a damn. He navigates corruption, gangland politics, and the small time crooks who will one day harness the destructive powers of penguins, flowers, and being really good at riddles. I'll stick with the Tommy Wiseau version.
