Happy Saturday, it’s finally summer which means that’s there’s virtually nothing on TV but we still have plenty of film news.
The Flash Gets A New Director
In case you haven’t been paying attention, the DCEU (DC’s cinematic universe) is kind of a mess at the moment. To their credit they aren’t stopping to evaluate that mess but just blindly ploughing forward with their 5-year plan. The latest news is that their upcoming movie, The Flash, has just received a new director in the form of Rick Famuyiwa (writer and director of critically-acclaimed Dope). This is after already losing Seth Grahame-Smith as director earlier this year.
Disney Movies Available On Netflix From September
After Netflix signed an exclusive deal with Disney meaning that they would be the only streaming service with access to the massive studio’s growing catalogue, Netflix announced that all Disney movies would be available to stream from September. Amazing, right? Not quite. A lot of people have misinterpreted the news as Netflix getting all Disney movies but the deal actually only covers future releases. Still, if you have a Netflix account, you can look forward to watching Disney films a short while after their theatrical releases.
Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition Trailer
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came out three months ago and they just dropped another trailer. Honestly, don’t ask me why: we’ve already established that the DCEU is a total mess. Still, this is the ‘ultimate edition’ which will be available for purchase later this month. There are scenes that were not included in the theatrical release and we even get to see Jena Malone’s cut character. If you’re at all interested, you can check it out below:
That’s it for today but if you did miss anything this week then come back tomorrow where we will do a round-up of the week’s news. Until then:
Does this new director have you more excited for The Flash? Are you anxiously awaiting all of the Disney movies to be added to Netflix’s library? Will you be buying Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition? Let me know in the comments.
