It is no surprise that Wonder Woman was this weekend’s top grossing film grossing a whopping $223 million dollars!

Wonder Woman surpassed everyone’s expectations as is being hailed as one of the greatest superhero films to date and the best film the DC Cinematic Universe has released to date. Even more impressive, however, are the records the film has broken. As of now it is the biggest opening for a female director ever! This breaks a glass ceiling in Hollywood and will definitely open opportunities for female directors in the action genre.

Marvel Entertainment eat your heart out!

Warner Bros./DC Comics films have just received their highest rating yet from Rotten Tomatoes all thanks to the new Wonder Woman movie!

The highly anticipated superhero film has received an amazing, and surprising, 96% from the film critic site which is highly coveted!

As you may recall most of the DC superhero films have been met with lackluster reviews from the critics. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice received 63%, and Suicide Squad received 62%, despite mass fan approval and controversy. It looks like Warner Bros. finally got it together behind the scenes and are delivering some serious storytelling when it comes to The Amazon Princess. This means we are going to see a lot more female superheroes on the Big Screen and makes this film the highest rated female-led superhero to date!

There are a few movies that make us laugh like none other, but very few franchises that keep the laughs coming consistently. Ice Cube’s Friday movies are definitely a few of them.

“We’re working on one right now,” Cube said. “We’re gonna call it Last Friday.”

“Hellboy” Reboot Set to Be Scarier, Bloodier and More Gruesome than Ever!

Reboots are a dime a dozen these days and while there are some we could honestly do without, there are others we all have just been dying to see.

The film franchise “Hellboy” is one of them.

According to the screenwriter for the film, this reboot of Hellboy will be darker and more gruesome than the previous films.

Fans of the film franchise have been asking for a third and final installment in Guillermo del Toro’s series, which starred Ron Perlman as the titular character, for years now, and they have yet to see their wishes fulfilled. After some back and forth with everyone involved in the series, earlier this year, del Toro finally said that a third Hellboy movie ‘simply isn’t in the cards’, but that didn’t mean audiences were done with the character forever. Game of Thrones’ director Neil Marshall will be helming an R-rated reboot of the franchise based on a screenplay from Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden, which will see ‘Stranger Things’ actor David Harbour taking over for Perlman as Brother Red.

[VIDEO] Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) Documentary set for June Release!

chris brown

“Welcome To My Life…” That is the name of Chris Brown’s documentary set for release this June. As you recall the singer/rapper/dancer teased news of a documentary about a year ago (you can see it by clicking here) and now a trailer has been released. Check it out below:

The trailer looks amazing and truly nostalgic. We get to stroll down to seemingly simpler times when Chris was the artist we all knew and loved. He had the potential to be the greatest entertainer on the planet and somehow, somewhere he lost his way. Eerily his shortfall sounds like Michael Jackson’s in the “not getting to have a childhood” arena. However, and unsurprisingly, we had no idea he was ever suicidal. Even more riveting are the labels attributed to him like “misogynist” and “violent.” This documentary goes there and we aren’t talking about Degrassi!

We definitely think a documentary on Breezy is definitely overdue. Over the last few years his life, career, and talent have been marred and overshadowed by controversy. Whether it is the lingering domestic violence, a restraining order from Karrueche Tran, or some mishap with a random woman or camera man as of earlier this week.

What do you guys think of Chris Brown’s documentary? Will you be tuning in? Sound off in the comments’ section below.
