The first trailer for Zack Snyder’s superhero epic Batman v. Superman has leaked online. Yesterday, the director tweeted that the trailer would be unveiled on Monday, but someone managed to capture a bootlegged video with Portuguese subtitles and leak it to the Internet. It was pulled from YouTube almost immediately, but sites including Variety, Uproxx, CNET and others still featured an embedded version. All of the hype may be somewhat overblown though: Aside from some dramatic voiceovers, a few glimpses of Superman and a clip of a glowing-eyed Batman, you really don’t get to see much of the movie. Authorities are currently looking for these guys, who they believe may be responsible for the leak ... Discuss

As far as movie trailers go, this new one for Marvel’s Ant-Man is pretty great. Anyone rightly skeptical about a non-satirical superhero movie featuring a man with the power of ants starring Paul Rudd, can put their concerns at ease. At least judging from this trailer, Ant-Man may actually be a decent action movie ... Discuss
If J.K. Rowling gets her wish, Eddie Redmayne will be the face of the new Harry Potter spin-off franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. According to The Independent, Redmayne is the Harry Potter author and Beasts screenwriter’s choice to play Newt Scamander in a new franchise—based on a fictional Hogwarts textbook—that is described as “neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world.” Redmayne hasn’t committed to the franchise, but has become a major star in recent years with roles films including Les Miserables, Jupiter Ascending and The Theory of Everything for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. The first installment of the franchise is slated for a November 2016 release ... Discuss
Your dream of being a in a Left Behind movie may soon become a reality. The makers of Nicolas Cage’s Left Behind reboot, which opened to a 2% Rotten Tomatoes rating when it released last fall, are attempting to raise $500,000 to make a sequel. Just for context, last year’s Cage version cost $16 million. Sure, the budget constraints may leave you with some doubts about the quality of the action epic, which depicts a very literal version of the book of Revelation, but just listen to these perks. For $200 you can “Be one of the ‘raptured’ by having your image featured on the ‘Missing Persons’ wall in a special, limited edition Left Behind 2 movie poster!” For $500 you can have your name listed in the credits. For $750 you can “be included on a wall in the background of the film as one of the raptured missing persons.” For $2,500, you can be an extra.
Sadly, yet totally unsurprisingly, the $7,500 level—which lets you get an actual speaking role in the film—is sold out. On the Inidegogo page, the film’s producer said, “There is a lot of story to tell. And ultimately, until my last breath or until the Lord returns, I will be pushing to bring the entire story of the end-time prophecies to the big screen.” Considering the first film covered just the first few pages of the 16-volume novel series, we may be looking at A LOT more Left Behind in the coming decades ...
