Jai Courtney says The Suicide Squad will be “tonally different” to the first movie

Although James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has been described as “a total reboot”, we know from the film’s casting that isn’t going to be exact the case as several members of David Ayer’s 2016 film are returning including Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and Amanda Waller.

Still, given Gunn’s sensibilities, it seems a pretty safe bet to say we’re in for a very different type of film come 2021 – something that Jai Courtney has confirmed during an interview with Comic Book.

“It’s kind of funny that we’re getting it up to go again and there’s a bunch of new people and a bunch of old people, too,” states Courtney, who will be reprising his role as Captain Boomerang. “It’s going to be different, for sure, but I think everyone’s welcoming that challenge and welcoming the new energy in.”

Are You Ready to Face the Mayhem? Birds of Prey Set to Premiere February 2020

  • Popsugar
We've only gotten a few sneak peeks at the upcoming Harley Quinn stand-alone film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), but we finally have the official premiere date: Feb. 7! The film's Twitter page dropped the premiere date for fans, along with the film's official poster, and it looks as fantabulous as we've been expecting.

The poster features the star-studded cast of what actress Margot Robbie has decreed the "girl gang" film in the DC universe, including Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya/Question, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary. Birds of Prey will have Harley team up Black Canary, Huntress, and Detective Montoya to protect a young Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) - who eventually dons the mantle of Batgirl in the comics - from the sinister Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) and Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina).

The Suicide Squad Quietly Begins Shooting, Full Character List Is Under Lockdown
The Suicide Squad has started production. James Gunn quietly revealed the news on social media after a fan asked him about it. The news comes one week after Gunn announced the official cast for the highly anticipated movie, which is much larger than people were expecting. With that being said, Gunn has warned DC fans to not get "too attached," meaning some of these characters more than likely won't be making it out of the movie alive. Fans will all have to start taking bets on who lives in the near future.

Yesterday, James Gunn posted an image from the Kids Climate March in Los Angeles. The image featured a kid holding a sign with Guardians of the Galaxy characters Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon on it with a message about saving the planet. Obviously, Gunn loved the picture and everything that it stands for, so he shared it with his 1.1 million followers.

Snider is set to direct the feature version of the short, which revolves around “a fourth-grade class who plays an innocent April Fools prank on their teacher (Robbie) that accidentally kills her. Convinced they’ll go to prison if anyone finds out, they try to hide her body before a police officer arrives for their anti-drug lesson.”

Check out the original short film here…

Fool’s Day is the second project announced this month from LuckyChap after Tank Girl, with Robbie’s Dreamland director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte attached to helm an adaptation of the cult comic book and Robbie circling the title role.

Breaking Down Jennifer Lopez's Oscar Odds For Hustlers

  • Popsugar
The reviews are in, and it looks like Hustlers is getting some major award season buzz, especially for star Jennifer Lopez. So will she actually be nominated for an Oscar? It's still too early to make solid predictions, since many of the year's biggest movies have yet to be released, but right now, Lopez is definitely a contender at the very least.

Based on the way the film's cast is billed - Lopez is billed second, behind costar Constance Wu - it's still a toss-up whether Lopez's Oscar campaign will push her towards the leading or supporting actress category. Both fields are crowded with other major turns, which could make Lopez something of a dark horse, since her film is decidedly less "Oscar-y" than some of her competition. If she chooses to compete in the leading category, she'll likely be up against award season vets like Saoirse Ronan (for Little Women

‘Peter Rabbit 2’ Hops Closer To Easter 2020

  • Deadline
Updated, 10:33 Am: Sony’s Peter Rabbit 2 is jumping away from its Feb. 7 release date to April 3, which is nine days before Easter. MGM’s 007 film No Time to Die will own the Easter frame. On the upside, with spring breaks the advance runway before Bond is an advantage for Peter Rabbit 2, as it plays to a younger crowd. However, per Comscore, the April 3-5 period is crowded with Warner Bros. claiming an untitled release during that time, Paramount’s Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani movie The Lovebirds, and finally Fox/Marvel’s much delayed The New Mutants. Sony has the Kevin Hart drama Fatherhood on April 3.

Previously, May 4, 2018: Peter Rabbit scored plenty of lettuce for Sony Pictures this year, and now the studio wants more. Sony said late this afternoon that it has greenlighted Peter Rabbit 2, which will be hopping in on February 7, 2020, nearly two years to

‘Ad Astra’ Film Review: Brad Pitt Journeys to the Edge of Space and the Depths of His Character’s Soul

‘Ad Astra’ Film Review: Brad Pitt Journeys to the Edge of Space and the Depths of His Character’s Soul
Is Brad Pitt’s character in “Ad Astra” a sociopath? That is the nagging question after watching director and co-writer James Gray’s remarkably stylish and fascinating space drama, which follows astronaut Roy McBride (Pitt) on a mysterious trek to the edge of the solar system to find his estranged father, Clifford (Tommy Lee Jones).

At its core, “Ad Astra” is a family saga about a man grappling with the person he’s become by way of an increasingly intense desire to reconnect with his astronaut dad who abandoned him, the man whose otherworldly curiosity far superseded his paternal ambition. Clifford is more of a figment than an actual person in Roy’s eyes — a man who by default is heralded because he dared to go where no other had gone before, regardless of the casualties along the way. But Roy, a man whose conflicted emotions are confined to internal

What Does Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Think of James Gunn's Rebooted Sequel?

What Does Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Think of James Gunn's Rebooted Sequel?
David Ayer is out and James Gunn is in when it comes to continuing the story of the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, but Ayer appears to be handling the situation with class. Following the underperforming reception of the original movie, Warner Bros. opted to take the Dceu in a new creative direction.

Ayer has since officially commented on The Suicide Squad in response to a tweet from a fan on Twitter, making it clear he harbors no negative feelings about it. "[Ayer] did an incredible version and it's now time for Gunn to shin. Please don't attack any of these parties, as all they are doing their good, and they're doing it in style too," the fan wrote on Twitter. Here's what Ayer said in response.

"Exactly! DC is blessed to have James Gunn. I'm getting my popcorn ready."

Tommy Wiseau Throws Himself Into The Suicide Squad Cast List, Will We See Him?

Tommy Wiseau Throws Himself Into The Suicide Squad Cast List, Will We See Him?
James Gunn is tearing Tommy Wiseau apart by not including him in the official cast list for The Suicide Squad, so the filmmaker behind The Room has apparently cast himself. Recently, Gunn posted an image on social media revealing the complete list of names who've been cast in prominent roles in the upcoming Dceu movie. Both confirming the returns of some names from the original and introducing plenty of newcomers, the cast list is practically a who's who of Hollywood stars. However, one key name is missing from that list, as Tommy Wiseau's name is nowhere to be found.

In a parody image posted to his official Twitter account, Tommy Wiseau edits the cast list provided by Gunn to have it include his own name. While Wiseau didn't provide a caption, the picture certainly speaks for itself. In between John Cena and Joaquin Cosio, Wiseau's name shines brightly, and it's

Margot Robbie Is in Negotiations to Join Comedy Fools Day
