Is Joe Manganiello Still Playing Deathstroke in ‘The Batman’?
Step back in time with me, if you will, to a simpler time: September 2016. At that time, Zack Snyder was still the director on Justice League, and Ben Affleck was still directing The Batman. Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) was announced to play the villainous Deathstroke, who would be squaring off against Batman in his solo feature and possibly making an appearance in Justice League. Fast forward to July 2017 and Snyder has left Justice League for personal reasons with Joss Whedon overseeing extensive reshoots, and Affleck has handed directing duties on The Batman over to Matt Reeves (War for … »

Dunkirk opened in India last Friday to stellar reviews and what is considered a strong box-office opening for a Hollywood film, bringing in an estimated $2.4 million. But not everyone in the country is impressed.
Various reports in leading media outlets have questioned why Christopher Nolan's movie ignored what the Times of India newspaper calls the “significant contribution” of Indian soldiers at Dunkirk. The article, titled "How Nolan forgot the desis (Indians) at Dunkirk," notes that the omission should be seen in light of the fact that the “British public is more well-informed today about the Indian role »

He'll be back: why old age can't keep Arnold Schwarzenegger down
The man they call the Austrian Oak has wielded a sword, a shotgun and a governor’s pen. But as he turns 70, is time finally catching up with Arnie?
All his life, Arnold Schwarzenegger has embodied dominance. Mr Olympia, Conan the Barbarian, the Terminator, the Governator – on screen or on a podium he was the biggest, the strongest, the mightiest. Whether wielding a sword, a shotgun or a governor’s pen, as a film character or himself, he exulted in success – in victory.
“Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of the women.” “I’ll be back.” “If they don’t have the guts, I call them girlie men.” He was, and seemingly always would be, the Austrian Oak.

‘Room 104’ Director Breaks Down the Mind-Boggling Ending to Episode 1 — Spoilers
[Editor’s Note: The below interview and analysis includes spoilers for “Room 104,” Episode 1, “Ralphie.”]
“Room 104” welcomed guests with an absolutely wild first episode, setting a high bar for the season to come (but one they do meet).
In “Ralphie,” a single father (Ross Partridge) leaves his adolescent son, Ralph (Ethan Kent), with a babysitter, Meg (Melonie Diaz), while he goes out on a date. The job seems simple enough: Feed the kid, get him in bed at a reasonable hour, and expect the dad to return relatively early. Granted, Meg wasn’t explicitly instructed not to strangle Ralph to death, but she also wasn’t warned of an evil, identical twin brother named Ralphie who terrorizes them both.
…if that’s what happened. Thanks to a few well-placed clues as to Meg’s mental state, including a lack of references, as well as the creepy vibes of the room itself, it’s plausible she might have imagined the whole thing. Ralph could have »

How Deadpool 2’s Director Feels About That Weird Spider-Man Theory
Film Review: ‘I Dream in Another Language’
At the outset of Mexican director Ernesto Contreras’ entrancing fourth feature, “I Dream in Another Language,” the fate of an indigenous language hangs in the balance: Only two living souls — once the closest of friends, now bitter rivals — still speak Zikril, which could easily die with them. Like certain species of rare butterflies, languages really do disappear, but the director (and his screenwriter brother, Carlos) pursue the metaphor further: In a world of globalization, endangered primitive languages represent different ways of seeing and understanding the world, perspectives that are lost when we fail to show sufficient curiosity in the generations and cultures that have come before.
In a perverse twist, this lovely, festival-anointed art film (which won the world dramatic competition’s audience award at Sundance) opens the same day as “The Emoji Movie,” and though each film depicts the death of communication in its own fashion, only one could be described as a poetic elegy to »
