Quick Search: Batman v Superman American Ultra Night Moves The Double Rio 2 The End of the Tour Now You See Me

Without a catchy Pharrell Williams tune and coming a little too late to take advantage of any possible World Cup bump, the Brazilian-flavored “Rio 2”, the sequel to the wildly popular “Rio”, is out on Blu-ray and DVD, finding Blu traveling to the Amazonian rain forests to search for macaws. DVD extras include three featurettes and a music video from Janelle Morae while Blu-ray extras include a deleted scene, a featurette and a few more downloadable songs.


“Rio 2” is released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 15, 2014.

As many fans know, Jesse Eisenberg will portray Lex Luthor in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Japanese actress Tao Okamoto also has a part in the film, and reports came out earlier this month that she would play Lex’s assistant Mercy, based on the comic book character Mercy Graves. Now, we have some new looks at both actors.

Eisenberg appears in a photo on Twitter with David Kwong, who designed the magic for the actor’s film Now You See Me. Kwong was in Detroit earlier this week performing magic at the Ford Motor Company, and Eisenberg was there to support him.


The photo shows the actor in a baseball cap, but he’s got plenty of hair under it. Reports have maintained that Eisenberg’s version of Lex would have somewhat blonde hair that resembles Kurt Cobain’s.

The New Group has announced the three productions that will run at the Pershing Square Signature Center during its 2014-15 20th-anniversary season. Special events at The New Group will be announced soon.

The first major New York revival of David Rabe’s Sticks and Bones, directed by Scott Elliott, will kick off the season in the fall. Holly Hunter and Bill Pullman are set to star in this brutally funny play about an average American family torn apart by a son’s return from the Vietnam War. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

In early 2015, The New Group will present the New York premiere of Joel Drake Johnson’s Rasheeda Speaking. The play will be helmed by Tony-winning performer Cynthia Nixon in her directorial debut. Broadway favorite Dianne Wiest and Tony winner Tonya Pinkins will lead the cast as Ileen and Jaclyn, two women who have developed a bond in the six months they’ve worked together at the front desk of Dr. Williams’ office.

The season’s final offering will be the world premiere of The Spoils, a new play written by and featuring Jesse Eisenberg. The Spoils follows Ben, a young man who’s been kicked out of grad school, lives off his parents’ money, and bullies everyone in his life. Running in spring 2015, the play will feature direction by Scott Elliott, with casting still to be announced.

While many are still arguing and debating over the casting of Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, Jesse Eisenberg is still the most intriguing actor to discuss in Zack Snyder’s ambitious superhero film. Eisenberg does not meet the physical characteristics we have come to associate with Superman’s nemesis and we have been hearing a lot of theories as to how he will be portrayed uniquely in the follow-up to MAN OF STEEL.

A couple of reports on shooting currently taking place for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has yielded corroboration for previous theories as to how Lex Luthor will appear in the film as well as some new details about what hairstyle he will (or will not) be sporting in the movie. First up is this tidbit from Batman-News:

Eisenberg has “a lot of hair”. It’s not Eisenberg’s typical curly look — it’s a bit longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it’s dirty blonde. Eisenberg’s Luthor has spastic mannerisms, like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day.

That immediately made me think of his hairstyle in NOW YOU SEE ME. This obviously will upset long time fans of the bald Lex from every iteration of the character we have seen in comics, movies, television, and animation, but that does not mean he may not end up bald by the end of the film.

ComicBook.com supports the same details from their source while also indicating that the scenes being shot at the Google/Facebook-esque LexCorp office features Lx shooting a basketball and sinking the shot before turning to shake hands with a senator. The senator in question is said to be played by Holly Hunter, somewhat confirming her role in the film. Here are some more Lex details.

“[Lex is] a slimy businessman we can all despise. You are going to hate this guy. You are going to root for him to be punched by Supes when he weasels his way out of legal trouble. He is cocky and confident because he is THAT good at what he does. He’s a billionaire who knows he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman visiting because he’s a billionaire.”

All in all, I am about as affected by this news as I was by the shifting of Perry White to a non-Caucasian actor and Jimmy Olsen becoming Jenny Olsen. In the end, times change and shifts like this do not disrupt or ruin the film, at least for me. As long as Lex is an evil motherf*cker and a worthy opponent to Superman, I am all in.
