Ever since they announced their divorce back at the end of June this year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been spotted together in public putting up a united front for the sake of their three children.

As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone.

He believes Superman is to blame for all the horror the Earth has been faced with, and vows to take him despite his limited abilities. It isn't long before the two are forced to unite, however, in order to protect the citizens of Earth from a real threat that could prove to thrust the planet into oblivion.

Jesse Eisenberg Likens Comic-Con To "Genocide"


Jesse Eisenberg Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Robert Pattinson Jeremy Irons Holly Hunter

Jesse Eisenberg apparently didn’t enjoy being at Comic-Con, likening his experience at the massive convention to “some kind of genocide”. We know the crowds can be a little forceful, but seriously?

Giving a reaction to this year’s annual sci-fi and comic fest to the Associated Press on Monday (July 13th), the actor made the somewhat questionable remarks. “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people,” he reflected, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

Zack Snyder Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Gal Gadot Ray Fisher Amy Adams Jesse Eisenberg Jeremy Irons Ezra Miller

The first trailer for the DC crossover movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has finally arrived - and it's difficult to tell who's most formidable, despite the fact that one superhero has earned his power, and the other was gifted at birth.

Batman v Superman logo'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is coming next year

Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.

As far as publicity goes, the leaked Batman vs. Superman trailer may have worked in the movie’s favour. Sure, the early release meant it sort of clashed with the first look at Star Wars: Episode VII, but then this probably means that the superhero showdown will get an extra day of hype, once the actual, legit trailer drops/is released by the studio for real.

The shaky, second-hand recording of the trailer was only on YouTube for minutes, before being taken down, but it was enough to generate pages and pages of coverage, because, you know, content is kind of like gold for entertainment writers.

Ben Affleck And David Fincher Remaking Hitchcock's 'Strangers'


Ben Affleck

Following the runaway success of Gone Girl - the mystery-drama has now grossed over $365 million worldwide - David Fincher and lead star Ben Affleck are reteaming to work on a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train. 

Ben AffleckBen Affleck and David Fincher scored a hit with the mystery thriller Gone Girl

Titled simply Strangers, the movie will tell the story of a movie star in the middle of an Oscar campaign whose private plan breaks down. He is offered a ride to Los Angeles on another plane by a wealthy stranger. However, in the original, Hitchcock's plot revolves around two strangers meeting on a train and discussing the idea of exchanging murders - an idea that one of the strangers actually carries out. Given Fincher's work on Gone Girl, Strangers is likely to be tonally similar to the darkness of the 1951 original, which starred Farley Granger and Robert Walker.

David Fincher Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike

David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel Gone Girl has won the box office for the third week in a row in both America and Britain, a remarkable achievement for a two-and-a-half hour long mystery that loses its surprise value on first viewing. So audiences must be responding to its complex exploration of relationship issues, mainly how difficult it is to know what's going on in a partner's head.

Ben Affleck in Gone GirlBen Affleck in Gone Girl

This week in America, Gone Girl saw off competition from both Dracula Untold (which landed in second place) and Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day (at No 3). In Britain, newcomers The Maze Runner and Annabelle were held off at 2 and 3. And the film shows no signs of slowing down, at $162 million worldwide and climbing. Competition this week in America comes from Brad Pitt's Fury, while in the UK the top titles are Palo Alto and The Judge. In both markets, romantic drama The Best of Me is also expected to make its mark.

Gone Girl is Fincher's top grossing film to date.

With $26,8 million, Gone Girl narrowly beat our the critically panned Dracula Untold. The gory, vaguely historical flick came in second with $23,5 million, meaning that, despite abysmal reviews, Drac still has a shot at next week’s throne. Recently, director Gary Shore even let slip that he’s thinking about a possible sequel. Even though nothing’s been greenlit just yet, it looks like we won’t be rid of the Romanian prince for a while. Sigh.

Could Ben Affleck Return For 'Gone Girl' Sequel?


Ben Affleck David Fincher

Gillian Flynn had always played down the possibility of a sequel to her bestselling novel Gone Girl. After the insane plot twists and famous ending, the book and movie works well as a standalone piece of work - though given the box-office success of the latter, has Flynn changed her mind?

Speaking to the website at which she used to work, Flynn told Entertainment Weekly in 2012, "I didn't write it as an open ending to set up a sequel at all. It was the only thing that made sense to me, that made sense to what was true to the book and true to the characters. Amy's not going to end up in jail. She's Amazing Amy!"

Is Ben Affleck Right About Islam?


Ben Affleck Bill Maher

Ben Affleck called out Bill Maher over his “gross, racist, disgusting” ideas about Islam during a heated debate on the presenter’s Real Time show on Friday night. Affleck took time out of promoting his latest movie Gone Girl to appear alongside author Sam Harris, former chair of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele and Nicholas Kristof.

Maher set out his stall early, telling Harris, "You and I have been trying to make the case that liberals need to stand up for liberal principles," Maher said to fellow panelist, author Sam Harris. “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for,” Maher continued, “…but then when you say in the Muslim world this is what's lacking, then they get upset.”
