The upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero adventure Justice League is given the 1980s style trailer treatment in a new fan video.

The Shawshank Redemption and Office Space are good examples of this phenomenon. Both were box office flops that went on to become classics in their respective genres.
Then there are the movies that go the other way. Beloved hits upon release see their reputations diminish with the passage of time. There can be a variety of reasons why this happens. Some have very “of the moment” stories that lose their relevance. Others contain elements that pass muster initially, but are problematic in the ...

As the highest-rated Marvel movie since the MCU started back in 2008, it already looked like Ragnarok had the “spark” to keep the Thor series alive a little longer.
