Zack Snyder Steps Down From 'Justice League' to Deal with Family Tragedy

Zack Snyder Steps Down From 'Justice League' to Deal with Family Tragedy

Would never wish that upon someone, good of him to take the time of and spend it with his family, justice league isnt as important as his family.

Holy shit. I feel really bad for their whole family.

Zack is right, at the end of the day, it's just a movie.

Hope he can overcome this.

This is fucking awful. I totally understand why he thought burying himself in his work might offer some kind of escape, but it's good that he's realised that it's not going to work out for him and that he needs a break. People say a lot of shit about him but he definitely seems committed to his job and to these movies. It's a shame he won't get to finish it himself, but at least he has someone competent in his place. Wishing him, Deborah and the rest of their family well.

What's sad is this quote:

“Here’s the thing, I never planned to make this public,” he says. “I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They’ll do what they do. The truth it…I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”

i.e. He knew if WB just announced "Zack needs a break, he's stepping down" all the blogs would've run with "JUSTICE LEAGUE IS A MESS!! WB FINALLY FIRES SNYDER!!!!!" So he felt the need to have to tell the world his daughter killed herself and he wasn't recovering from it like he thought he would. Hopefully this and his break kills the hard-on the internet has for hating him.

Spider-Man Homecoming’s Tom Holland is Nathan Drake in Uncharted movie

Tom Holland is playing Young Nathan Drake

focused on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan

If you are gonna make an Uncharted movie, that's an awesome place to start. Super interested to see who they cast as Sully.

"in what will be redrafted as a prequel to the treasure hunting action story line in the Naughty Dog video game for PlayStation. Shawn Levy is directing a film that will take its inspiration from a sequence in the third iteration of the video game that focused on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan."

If Tom Hanks ends up playing a moustached character called Sully twice , I'll be amazed.

Netflix got booed at Cannes, but it's not responsible for killing movies; at least it finances auteurs. A lot of blame should go to the major studios, which have become sequel and franchise-obsessed

Man that Cannes director sounds incredibly stubborn. Not good for the long term. I get no one likes change, but this is an unstoppable force that they should make peace with now

The last people who refused to accept Netflix changing the way the world does things, and refused to pivot with it?   

Blockbuster Video.

Edit:  Well, this blew up.  I didn't think the new reigning champion for my top comment would not be about masturbation.  But, well, there it is.

Not to mention: The movie-going audiences don't owe the movie industry a god damn thing. After so many shit movies made from cost projection spreadsheets instead of artistic inspiration, and then overcharging the shit out of audiences and theatres for the privilege... anyone who improves the landscape is a hero in my book.

Booing is like a sport at Cannes. The list of stuff that gets standing ovations or boos and walkouts is as strange as the Cannes Film Festival itself. I wouldn't take it too seriously.

If I did take it too seriously, I'd say that the audiences at Cannes see themselves as cinema purists and would say that the only way to see movies is on the big screen, which isn't Netflix's primary platform. Netflix's movie production has also been lackluster compared to their work in episodic TV (so far.) The trailer to Okja, the film that was stopped partially due to non-stop booing, also looks like it could be a total mess (but man, oh man, do I want to see it.)

That pink splotch in Finding Nemo has to be the jellyfish scene. That color is too distinctive to be anything else.

I forgot the ending scene of Finding Nemo where the nightmare missingno glitch face escaped the frames and took me away.

Also the angler fish scene is probably one of the dark spots.

I've hardly ever seen them be so indifferent about a movie.

I seem to be one of the few who absolutely hated this movie but I'm glad they brought up a lot of my issues. I just hate how clearly it's sanding down anything interesting in favor of boring gore and violence. I agree the David/Walter scenes were the only highlight but even that ended in a goddamn Kung Fu fight complete with cheesy one liners.

Mike really sums up my reaction to the movie, there are ideas here that can work, there are a couple of stand out sequences, but it comes out very meh.

And as Jay points out, Ridley Scott really seems to have a lot of resentment toward 'Aliens' and seems content to ignore everything it contributed to the Xenomorph mythos (seriously, where does the Queen fit into all of this??).

Scott made a brilliant, simple horror movie back in the 70s, then he tried to turn that into a profound meditation on human existence, but that didn't really work, so he's steering back into horror movie territory.

I think the mini-gun suggests that this is going to be nothing like the first movie.

Will this just be an action movie with the character of Rambo, or is it an actual retelling of 'First Blood'?

Tiger Shroff is a badass name

I went on a manhunt once. I just got back from Nam. I was hitchhiking through Oregon. Next thing I know there's a bunch of cops chasing after me through the woods! I had to take them all out, it was a bloodbath!!

What the hell defines a 'hit comedy' at Sundance? The audience not walking out?

I fucking love Kyle Mooney. The man's humor is right up my alley.

The audience applauded at something besides the opening credit and studio logos.

Kyle Mooney is so hot right now, I bet everyday people walk up to him and say "Hey you're that guy from Neighbors 2"

Damn, it's gonna be hard to top Topher Grace's iconic portrayal, but I'm willing to give this a shot.

Sigh.

Ya got me Sony. You found the one way I could find myself giving a shit about this movie.

We should have seen this coming after Mad Max, it makes perfect sense really:

Not Another Teen Movie (2001) is one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies-- a satire on 80s & 90s coming-of-age movies that introduced us to Chris Evans

Oh man, I used to love this movie!

Mr. Briggs: Hey, uhh…I might be late to pick you guys up.

Janey: Why, do you have a job interview today, daddy?

Mr. Briggs: No, honey, I'll probably just be wa-a-a-ay too drunk.

Janey: Oh, that's good, we don't want you drinking and driving.

Mr. Briggs: Oh, I'll be driving. I'll just be too shit-faced to remember to pick you guys up.

As a writer on the film, can't tell you how cool it is to see this Reddit post. We had so much fun making that movie and it's amazing to see that it still resonates for people. Thanks to everyone who has watched this movie multiple times! And feel free to ask any questions if you want. And yes, I can provide proof :)

"It was raining really hard that night, the roads were slippery."

"Janey...a car accident?"

"No, cancer."

Goodnight pumpkin tits

First behind the scenes look at Mera in upcoming Aquaman movie.

I wonder if they'll put Aquaman in his traditional orange and green for this.

Maybe they'll do something super subdued, but I really doubt we get Aquaman wearing comicbook orange.

I guess an Atlantian perk is always having that 'right out of the shower' look.

Seems like a pretty accurate rendition of the character.
