‘Incredibles 2’ Trailer Gets to Work Saving the World Again
Disney-Pixar has released the first Incredibles 2 trailer.

‘Justice League’: Why Joss Whedon is Only Receiving a Credit for Writing, Not Directing
After an unspeakable family loss, Zack Snyder left “Justice League” in May and handed the film over to Joss Whedon to complete. However, Whedon was already been working with Snyder to write new material for additional photography. That Whedon was already taking his cues from Snyder in reshaping the film — to say nothing of the “Avengers” credit on his resume — made him the obvious choice to direct the reshoots and steer the film over the finish line.

Since then, “Justice League” producers, cast, and crew have been in lock-step in their message: Whedon selflessly came aboard to carry out Snyder’s vision. Wonder Woman herself chimed in: “This is Zack Snyder’s movie,” said Gal Gadot in an interview with Empire Magazine. “Joss only did a few weeks of reshoots. He was Zack’s guy and knew exactly what he wanted to get.”

Idfa: Syrian Comedian Looks for Fresh Start in France

Fares Helou was one of Syria’s most celebrated actors when the Arab Spring arrived in Damascus. But once his political beliefs forced him to flee the country, he suddenly found himself playing his most challenging role yet—as an exile in a foreign land.

Helou’s story is at the heart of “A Comedian in a Syrian Tragedy,” a documentary by director Rami Farah being pitched at Idfa Forum. An intimate portrait of exile, the pic spans four years as Farah and Helou leave Syria and struggle to rebuild their lives in France.

The French-Danish-Norwegian-Jordanian co-prod is produced by Lyana Saleh, of Osor; Signe Byrge Sørensen, of Final Cut for Real; Anita Rehoff Larsen, of Sant & Usant; and Cindy Le Templier, of Shashat Multimedia Productions.

When the first demonstrations against President Bashar al-Assad began in 2011, Farah found himself with the challenging task of trying to document the very protests he was taking part in.

The final post-credit sequence for Justice League teases something at once both obvious and exciting for long-term comic book fans.

Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) has escaped from prison and meets with Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), suggesting that now that the good guys have a team, maybe the bad guys should think about doing the same thing, too.

This is, of course, hardly the most original idea in the world — Lex, you're supposed to be a genius! — so it should come as no surprise to discover that the Injustice Society of the World debuted in...
