Austin Mayor Responds to Women-Only ‘Wonder Woman’ Screening Hate Mail With a Glorious Sick Burn

It was the Facebook post that launched a thousand (give or take) s— fits. When the Alamo Drafthouse announced a special women-only screening of Wonder Woman, the outrage from misogynist bros was swift, immediate and entirely insane, with many bizarrely labeling the event “sexist.” But those toxic reactions didn’t quite have the intended effect and only made the screening more popular among women, spurring the Drafthouse to turn it into a national event, much to the chagrin of all those whiny sexist internet trolls — including one particularly angry man who decided it might be more effective to bypass theater management entirely and take his complaints straight to the mayor of Austin, Texas.

Rumor: Universal Wants Dwayne Johnson to Play ‘Wolfman’ in Their Dark Universe

Universal was initially taking more of a “wait and see” approach to their burgeoning monster movie franchise, but that changed last week when the studio formally announced plans to kick things into high gear. The newly-dubbed and somewhat ambitious “Dark Universe” (not to be confused with Warner Bros.’ long-developing DC film) will feature long-rumored reboots like Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolfman, and rumor has it Universal is eyeing another one of their franchise super-stars to take the lead in the latter.

‘Taxi Driver’ Screenwriter Paul Schrader Drops Epic Diss Bomb on Terrence Malick

To say that Terrence Malick’s films have grown increasingly divisive would be an understatement; his dizzying (literally, there’s so much spinning), dreamlike aesthetic is something that is seemingly only loved or hated, rarely — if ever — eliciting a tepid reaction in between. (I’ve never seen someone walk out of a Malick film, shrug and say, “Eh, it was just okay.”) According to a very suggestive Facebook post, Paul Schrader, the Golden Globe-nominated screenwriter of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, has come out firmly in the hate camp — at least as far as Malick’s latest is concerned.

‘Wonder Woman’ London Premiere Canceled Following Manchester Terrorist Attack

Following Monday night’s terrorist attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, Warner Bros. has officially canceled the London premiere of Wonder Woman, the studio’s highly-anticipated superhero film — and the first in over 10 years to feature a female lead. The news comes just one day after British Prime Minister Theresa May elevated the terrorist threat level from “severe” to “critical,” and announced that another attack could be “imminent.”

‘Top Gun 2’ May Reunite Tom Cruise With ‘Oblivion’ Director Joseph Kosinski

Just yesterday, Tom Cruise himself confirmed that Top Gun 2 is finally, officially, honest-to-goodness-they’re-not-joking-this-time happening. Today, it looks like it’s even closer to reality than we thought, as Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is reportedly the frontrunner to helm the long-promised sequel to Tony Scott’s 1986 classic — not entirely surprising, since he’s worked with Cruise before.

‘Wonder’ Trailer: Julia Roberts and Jacob Tremblay Are Going to Make You Cry

After you watch the first trailer for Wonder, two things will happen: First, you’re going to need to grab some tissues because something damp might be happening around your eyeball-area. After you’ve successfully tended to that whole situation, you’ll probably demand — out loud, to no one in particular — the names of the complete monsters who made this movie.

Ava DuVernay Will Direct Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o in the Buddy Movie of Your Dreams

The photo that launched a meme that inspired a social media dream is now becoming a reality because sometimes the internet has some okay ideas (sometimes). Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are teaming up to co-star in a buddy movie directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Issa Rae — if that sounds too good to be true, that’s because it was…until it wasn’t.

‘The Angry Birds Movie 2’ Will Officially Smash Into Theaters in 2019

Following a successful collaboration on last year’s The Angry Birds Movie, Sony and Rovio are teaming up for another animated avian outing — that’s not really surprising, since the first film was a fairly big hit at the box office, making it a matter of when, not if, a sequel would happen. That sequel will now officially arrive in 2019, which also happens to be the 10th anniversary of the popular mobile game.
