Yes, Ben Affleck Will Definitely Direct THE BATMAN

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about whether or not Ben Affleck is really into starring in and directing The Batman. But in today’s Movie Morsels, we finally have confirmation from the filmmaker himself that he will indeed take on the project. Plus, the latest video from Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the red band trailer for Matthew McConaughey‘s next film, and much more!

The Batman

Despite his recent statement that he would only direct The Batman if the script was good enough, Ben Affleck appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week and admitted he will certainly direct the movie, though he laments that no one is paying much attention to his new movie Live by Night. In a way, I feel for Affleck. And in another way, when an Oscar-winning filmmaker signs on to make a movie about the world’s most famous superhero whom he’s already received a boatload of cash for playing onscreen…

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

While it’s unlikely that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is really the last Resident Evil movie ever, I suspect it will be the last directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and the last to feature his wife Milla Jovovich. So the action star is obviously intent on going out with as big a bang as possible. Below, you can watch Jovovich introduce a new Resident Evil: The Final Chapter “The Killing Floor” 360° Experience video to whet fans’ appetite for the video game adaptation’s January 27th release…

Gold

Hey, wanna watch Matthew McConaughey get good and naked (and just a little bit bald)? Then make sure your coworkers or significant other aren’t looking over your shoulder and feast your eyes on the red band trailer for Gold. The Oscar winner’s latest sees him playing a real-life prospector keen on striking it rich, opposite Edgar Ramírez and Bryce Dallas Howard…

The Bye Bye Man

Usually January horror releases aren’t exactly known for their high quality, but there’s something deliciously retro-looking about The Bye Bye Man. It’s a film apparently designed with the simple goal of scaring the crap out of teenagers, by giving them the latest in a long line of cinematic boogeymen (as embodied by our old friend Doug Jones!). Saw and Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell features in the latest clip for the chiller, which hits theaters this week on, fittingly enough, Friday the 13th…

Dark Night

Finally today… The real life 2012 theater shooting that took place in Aurora, Colorado during a Dark Knight Rises screening was one of far too long a line of shootings that have taken place in this country over the last decade. No fictional story could be as terrifying. Thankfully, its dramatization in Dark Night is, by all accounts, not played for cheap scares, and is instead handled as sensitively as something this horrifying could be. The trailer for the acclaimed drama has just arrived online…
