Jason Momoa says the Snyder Cut of Justice League is “ssssiiicccckkkkkk”

Almost two years out from the movie, one would have to assume that by this point, all but the most optimistic of fans have resigned themselves to the fact that we’re never likely going to see Zack Snyder’s original vision for Justice League with the release of the fabled ‘Snyder Cut’.

However, when you’re the King of Atlantis, it seems you’ve got enough sway to get the Snyder Cut out from under lock and key, as Jason Momoa has taken to Instagram to share a video of himself and his friend and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League director, during which he thanks Snyder for showing him his original version of the film and describing the cut as “ssssiiicccckkkkkk”.

Zombieland Double Tap Retro Website Resurrects Tom from Myspace

  • MovieWeb
The latest website for Zombieland Double Tap is a hilarious parody of an old MySpace account. It's hard to believe, but there were a lot of people still using MySpace as their social media platform of choice back in 2009 when the first Zombieland hit theaters and became an unexpected hit. Facebook didn't even start making money until 2009 and was still in its infancy as far as the masses catching on at the time. The marketing for Zombieland Double Tap is certainly picking up where the first one left off.

The Zombieland Double Tap MySpace page boasts a custom layout with a special "Z" cursor and even includes the top eight friends feature, which of course includes Tom. The parody site is called "Zomspace: a place for survivors" and it is sure to bring back some decade-old memories of the earlier days of social media, before everybody and their parents were

Is Jesse Eisenberg’s “The Art Of Self Defense” A Dark & Comedic Version Of Brad Pitt’s “Fight Club” And Also Addressing The Pitfalls Of Toxic Masculinity?

The Art of Self Defense is a dark comedy directed by Riley Stearns, set in the middle of America with characters that seem mediocre on the surface, but are extremely eccentric once we get to know them. Jesse Eisenberg comes off as a boring accountant, Casey Davies, who has a mild-mannered dog as his primary companion and an overall lack of excitement for life until he is brutally attacked by a motorcycle gang. Being physically and emotionally scarred from this experience, he finds himself becoming immersed in karate classes, hosted by the ultra-masculine sensei played by Alessandro Nivola. The sensei encourages him to carry on with the classes by placing him on a pedestal for his efforts and with the motivation of the only female classmate, Anna, who is played by Imogen Poots. The more intimate Casey becomes with this group of people, the more disturbing the reality of his situation becomes.

International Trailer For Zombieland: Double Tap Offers up Some Fun New Footage

We’ve got an international trailer for you to check out today for the highly anticipated film Zombieland: Double Tap. It’s pretty crazy that after all these years the original cast of the film agreed to come back for the sequel! It sees the return off Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Oscar Winner Emma Stone as they continue to battle for survival in a world filled with zombies.

The new trailer offers up some amusing new footage, most notably, with a new character Madison, played by Zoey Deutch. As the group is trying to scope out the road ahead, Madison ends up playing with a pair of binoculars, looking through them backwards in order to make Tallahassee look like he’s far away.

Other new additions to the cast include Rosario Dawson, Avan Jogia, Luke Wilson, and Thomas Middleditch. Here’s the synopsis that was released:

Zombieland: Double Tap International Trailer Offers Some New Footage

Honestly, it’s nothing short of a miracle that all four members of the original cast – Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin – were able to return for Zombieland: Double Tap. Since the original film hit theaters 10 years ago, each of their careers have really taken off, both critically and financially. And as that riot-of-a-trailer that we got a few weeks back made clear, all of them have been up for at least one Academy Award.

Now, after giving us our first taste of the action and the laughs we’ll be getting come October, Sony has dropped another new preview for the sequel, and it even has a few snippets of fresh footage. Though mostly the same as the initial promo, this latest look at the film comes in the form of an international trailer and can be seen up above.

Zombieland: Double Tap International Trailer Brings New Footage & More Zoey Deutch

We have a brand new, international trailer for Zombieland Double Tap. This is one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the fall season and its release is creeping up fast. So far, we've seen just the one, main trailer, which was released by Sony last month, in addition to a couple of posters. Bearing that in mind, any additional footage at this point is valuable. While there's not a ton to speak of, this latest trailer does bring with it just enough new, not-spoilery footage to make it worth watching.

This trailer is a bit more lean than the main trailer. It skips the dramatic bit at the beginning in favor of jumping right to the action and carnage. It also shifts around a lot of the previous footage in a different order, while losing some of the extended bits. However, there are a few, slightly different shots. The main

Woody Harrelson Reveals He Turned Down Tom Cruise's Role in Jerry Maguire — and Regrets It!
Woody Harrelson was this close to having Renée Zellweger at hello.

In an interview with Esquire, the 58-year-old actor shared that there was one role he regretted turning down.

“I was offered what’s the ‘Show me the money’ movie? Jerry Maguire? I was offered Jerry Maguire,” he said.

As for why he passed on the part, which eventually went to Tom Cruise, Harrelson said that he thought audiences wouldn’t be interested, as the storyline revolves around a sports agent.

“I said to Jim [James L. Brooks, one of the film’s producers], ‘Nobody is going to give a s— about an agent,

How Many Zombieland Movies Will There Be? A Billion, If Emma Stone Has Her Way

  • Popsugar
Zombieland's sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap, is rising from the dead this October, but there's a chance it won't be the end of the road for Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). While sitting down with Entertainment Weekly, Ruben Fleischer - who directed the original 2009 horror comedy and is back to helm the sequel - revealed that an infinite amount of Zombieland movies could be on the horizon thanks to Emma Stone's interest and Woody Harrelson's ridiculously good health.

"We have to see how this one's received and if that's something audiences would want," Fleischer explained. "But I think we all had so much fun making this one, we'd be really lucky to get to return to Zombieland. Although, I will say, Emma said, she thought it would be fun if we did one of these every 10 years. Knowing that Woody's just the healthiest guy there is,

It's Time to "Nut Up or Shut Up" in the Zombieland: Double Tap Trailer

Ready to go back to Zombieland? I hope you just said "hell yes," because the trailer for director Ruben Fleischer's follow-up to the 2009 horror comedy, Zombieland: Double Tap, has arrived, and it's time to "nut up or shut up"

"Welcome to Zombieland. Life is about more than just survival. We were a family," Jesse Eisenberg's character, Columbus, says in a voice-over, before the new footage reveals what the gang - Columbus, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) - have been up to since we last saw them. After battling a horde of the undead to take up residence in a dilapidated White House, it seems the group picks up a few new recruits and finds a new community. Oh, and Little Rock decides to ditch everyone for a boy, and a dangerous rescue mission ensues.

Jesse Eisenberg Knows His Characters Are Arrogant, But They’re Never the Joke

Jesse Eisenberg Knows His Characters Are Arrogant, But They’re Never the Joke
Jesse Eisenberg excels at playing jittery, insecure young men, but he’ll never pursue those roles as a punchline. “People describe me as playing characters that are shy or introverted,” he said during a recent lunch in Chelsea. “These are things that are also natural to me as a person. I grew up introverted and shy in a smart family, and so when I read scripts that commodify and mock that…” He trailed off and grinned. “Is ‘kryptonite’ the right word?”

It was an ironic choice for the guy who played Lex Luthor in “Batman v. Superman,” a role that Eisenberg said he tackled for the villain’s longstanding pop-culture pedigree. It was better than some of the other paycheck gigs sent his way. “There was a movie that I heard was being developed at a major studio, which was about a guy who comes up with a math equation to make the perfect girlfriend,
