Like the Death Star’s tractor beam, Comic-Con 2015 just can’t seem to let us go. Fortunately, we’re in no hurry to be set free of its warm embrace, not when it’s still giving us goodies like new epic cast team-up photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and Fantastic Four and X-Men: Apocalypse. In today’s Movie Morsels, we also have a trailer for what’s most certainly Jennifer Lawrence‘s next Oscar-nominated film, Joy, along with a clever new Shaun the Sheep Movie poster, a behind-the-scenes featurette from Pixels, and a red-bland clip from Cooties!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Before we’ve even had a chance to watch Batman and Superman team up for the first time in a motion picture, we’re already seeing them stand alongside the members of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad. Justice Leaguers Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot, as well as their allies and opponents, posed alongside Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robie) and their teammates in the largest DC live-action film cast photo we’ve ever seen, taken by The Hollywood Reporter at Comic-Con.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, co-starring the above Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter, and directed by Zack Snyder, opens on March 25, 2016, in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. Suicide Squad, co-starring the pictured Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, and Viola Davis (as well as Jared Leto) and directed by David Ayer, opens on August 5, 2016.
Not to be outdone in the superhero-casts-team-up department, the stars of Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four reboot posed with Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds, Gambit‘s Channing Tatum, and Wolverine‘s Hugh Jackman. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a Marvel movie mic drop!
Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse, starring the above James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Evan Peters, and Olivia Munn lands on May 27, 2016. Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell, debuts on August 7, 2015. While Deadpool, Wolverine 3, and Gambit bow on February 12, 2016, March 3, 2017, and October 7, 2016, respectively.
Hey, speaking of Jennifer Lawrence… The Oscar winner reteams with Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, and director David O. Russell in Joy, the first trailer for which is now online. Starring Lawrence as the inventor of the Miracle Mop and the President of Ingenious Designs, LLC, the comedy-drama biopic opens on December 25th.
Ant-Man/Shaun the Sheep
Aardman’s latest full-length animated feature, Shaun the Sheep Movie, pays tribute to Marvel’s Ant-Man with its latest poster. The Wallace & Gromit spinoff, directed by Richard Starzak and Mark Burton, is due out on August 5th. Ant-Man arrives on July 17th.
Chris Columbus’ video-game pile-on Pixels, out on July 24th, has a new behind-the-scenes featurette, shot entirely with Sony’s innovative GoPro camera. Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, Ashley Benson, and Jane Krakowski star in the action comedy, which releases in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
Finally today, Elijah Wood’s horror comedy Cooties has itself a new red-band clip. Directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, written by Ian Brennan and Saw/Insidious‘s Leigh Whannell, and co-starring Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Jack McBrayer, and Jorge Garcia, Cooties sees limited release on September 18th.
