Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for Bright, their new original movie set in an alternate, present-day universe where "humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time."
Despite its solid box-office take, critics are pretty much in agreement that DC’s Suicide Squad film was a narrative mess. Now director David Ayer has chimed in, admitting there are a few changes he wishes he could go back and make.
David Ayer is attached to direct the upcoming Harley Quinn spinoff film, but this movie would look very different if directed by a woman. The fact that Margot Robbie is heavily involved and there's a female screenwriter on the project is encouraging, but fingers are crossed that we don't get another male-gazey antihero comic book movie.
Despite a mountain of buzz from those awesome pre-release trailers, the reviews are in — and Suicide Squad is apparently a Batman v Superman-sized mess of its own. Now it seems the studio had an inkling things could be going awry.
Things got a little uncomfortable during last night’s New York City premiere of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad when the director introduced his DC film onstage and made a derogatory remark vis-à-vis comic book archnemesis Marvel Comics.
Though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might be the heavy hitter on paper, a whole lot of the buzz seems to be building around Warner Bros.’s other big DC Comics movie hitting this year. Turns out the studio is also starting to hedge its bets.
