Matt Reeves Says Warner Bros. Is Excited About His Take on The Batman

Matt Reeves Batman

Warner Bros.’ relationship with new The Batman director Matt Reeves is off to a great start as both sides are excited for his vision. Following Ben Affleck stepping down as the director on Batman’s solo movie, WB moved quickly to try to find a replacement. Instantly, Reeves’ name was put into contention and wound up beating out a few other contenders to get the highly coveted gig. That was at the beginning of the year, but his commitment to War for the Planet of the Apes has kept him from turning his focus towards the DCEU.

Gillian Anderson in The X-Files Season 10, Episode 6

Gillian Anderson is not happy with The X-Files season 11 writer’s room and rightfully so — there are no women involved in the writing process for the new season.

Analog Photos Bring Terror in First Polaroid Trailer


The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films have released the first trailer for this summer’s horror film Polaroid. Horror films now more than ever are a dime a dozen, as film distributors and producers churn them out with low-budgets to make a half-decent profit.

The hook of recently release 47 Meters Down was the terror of an underwater shark attack, the upcoming Wish Upon features a possessed, Hellraiser-esque box, and Annabelle: Creation continues the story of the possessed doll from The ConjuringThe hook of Polaroid is right in the title, as seen in the first-look trailer for the film.

Polaroid is similar to recent hits like Lights Out and Oculus in that it’s originally based on the 2015 short film by the director of the feature-length version, Lars Klevberg. The typical five or six teenagers from plenty of other horror films stumble upon ...
