The final trailer for Suicide Squad dropped today, and it’s three minutes of serious noise and action. I’m still curious what the actual plot of the movie, but we’ll find out soon enough.
The Justice League trailer just dropped at Comic-Con, and it feels pretty darn good to us.
How about you?
This week’s edition of “Pump Up The Jam” features Allie X, Ty Segall, and more.

It’s a big weekend at the box office, as two more sequels look to duke it out for the top spot. Can either of them take down the reigning animation champion? Here are our predictions:
Star Trek Beyond is the third film in the rebooted franchise. This one is a stand alone, original story, rather than the pseudo-remake of the original Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan the previous film, Into Darkness acted as. Directed by Fast and Furious helmer Justin Lin, the film currently has solid reviews and decent word of mouth going for it, even in the face of the tragic death of series co-star Anton Yelchin. The question is, following the lacklustre reception to Into Darkness from die hard fans, has Star Trek Beyond lost a piece of its core audience? The secret weapon here is Simon Pegg, who co-wrote the film, along with co-starring as Scotty. Pegg is a geek and knows what the audience wants, and I’d be surprised if this third film doesn’t deliver. Look for a first place showing with $65 million.
They get me excited!
And first issues by great creators that I trust and whose work I constantly follow due to their reverence for the history of the comic book art forum – as well as their interests in turning it on its head? Well, that makes a “Wednesday Run” to the local comic book shop all that much easier!
In that vein, today sees the release of a brand new superhero series from some pretty incredible talent. Action-filled and full of mystery, adventure, and science fiction elements, it’s a series that should prove worthy of your monthly comic book reading habits.
After a lot of buildup and a lot of anxious wait, today finally sees the release of Black Hammer #1!
For too long in the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s quest for the Cosmic Seed, we have been thinking of it as an object, but it may be more than that. This powerful MacGuffin may also have been affecting our heroes’ actions as well. Check out my review of “I’ve Been Searching So Long” after the jump.
Ever seen a man shoot himself deaf? How about a guy offer his own no-longer-attached penis to his friends? Ever watched a guy hold his daughter’s guts in one hand and a cow’s in the other while crying about the fact they’re both just meat? If you watched “El Valero,” last night’s episode of Preacher, you can no longer say no to any of these questions. I will give the show credit for its creative use of disturbing imagery.
While last week’s number one film held strong for a second weekend, all eyes were on four ladies with proton packs on their backs. How did things turn out at the movies? Here’s what went down:
The Secret Life of Pets held on to the top spot at the box office for the second week in a row, bringing in an estimated $50.5 million, raising its two week total to an excellent $203 million on a $75 million budget. It looks as though Illumination has a new franchise on its hands. Read the rest of this entry
