If you tuned out of the teaser for Bright after a few seconds, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was just another gritty police drama starring Will Smith. You have to keep watching to understand just how weird the movie really is.
Suicide Squad is a weird movie, and not just because it’s about a motley crew of supervillains set in the DC universe. The movie itself is also a motley amalgamation—a strange blend of different tones, stories, and pacing all mashed into something that has cool individual elements, but never really comes together.
There is literally no way the actual movie could be crazier than the stories we keep getting about what the cast suffered during filming. Every single day, I think there can’t possibly be more. And every single day I am proven wrong. Often, more than once in a single 24-hour period. And now, parts, like, 4,000-4,005…
Every time we find out more about what filming Suicide Squad was like, the more convinced we are that it was a nightmare beyond understanding. This week: Viola Davis calling Joel Kinnaman a “pussy” and a “bitch.”

Our first glimpses of the suit from the new Robocop remake didn't blow us away exactly, with their "Bat-armor" vibe. Luckily, a new set photo reveals a very different version of Robocop's suit. Check out Robocop's "combat mode."
Could Joel Kinnaman from the The Killing be our new cyborg police officer? Variety's Jeff Sneider tweeted that Kinnaman was offered the part in the Robocop remake by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad: The Enemy Within). The trades are starting to speculate that he will have his answer fairly soon, and this should all be a…
