Lights out looks scary as shit. OhMyDog.

Also wtf is with every trailer having some sad emo girl doing a cover of an old song to sound super mopey and hipster?

Like covering Coldplay's "Don't Panic" all over the trailers for XMen Apocalypse? Agreed

So apparently the BvS Ultimate Cut is so much better than the theatrical release that now the turn on Snyder is making a 180 and the blame is being placed on WB for forcing him to cut it to a shorter length.

and in this day and age, what's a news without memes

It validates Snyder as a filmmaker but if you can't tell a fucking superhero story in 2 and a half hours you done goofed as a commercial director.

I say this as a B vs. S apologist too. At least it'll give us some fodder in debates with marvel bots when they tout the new shiny, slick but ultimately soulless avenger-adjacent movie.

When does this hit the streets? I haven't seen the film yet and figure the extended version is the way to go.

I agree but I haven't seen it yet so I'd have to see how it all works out before judging. I think since this is a set-up to JL that they just have to plenty to tell. Since it is the ultimate cut, he had to put all of them in there but the film could probably also be done as a 90-100 minute film if edited perfectly.

How does it validate him as a film maker? Part of the job is being able to manage the process from start to finish. That includes dealing with and managing studio interference. If it was someone like Nolan, I would be fine blaming it on the studio. He has a fantastic track record and one stinker can be forgiven or blamed on interference.

Snyder? Not so much.

And I don't even hate the guy.

STAR TREK: REBOOTED MOVIE UNIVERSE'S ALTERNATE TIMELINE OFFICIALLY NAMED

The alternate timeline introduced to the Star Trek universe with the release of J.J. Abrams' 2009 film reboot has finally received an official name: The Kelvin Timeline.

The name was revealed in a post on Star Trek Online (via io9), which was later confirmed on Twitter by Holly Amos of CBS Consumer Products, who said they "needed an in-universe term since we needed some way to refer to it in the encyclopedia."

The Kelvin Timeline is named after the U.S.S. Kelvin, the Federation starship destroyed by the Romulan attack in the opening of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek film reboot. Previously, fans had to use unofficial names for the timeline, including "Abramsverse," "NuTrek," and "Alternate Original Series."

Kelvin bears personal significance to Abrams, as it was the name of his grandfather who was instrumental in shaping the director's life. As noted by HitFix, the name was also featured as an easter egg in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with Daisy Ridley's Rey referring to the "Kelvin Ridge" on Jakku, as well as in many other Abrams projects.

Sucks that Chekov died. Really liked him. Really 'fit'
