Tick tock. WATCHMEN debuts this fall on HBO. From Damon Lindelof and set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, this drama series embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. The cast includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk. WATCHMEN is based on the graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.

This looks really bad. I can’t wait to watch it and be overly negative about the entire experience.
Avengers: Endgame has smashed box office records, pulling in an astonishing $1.2 billion globally in its opening weekend!! That is insane, like whole new levels of insane. Just doing the $357 in the US was nuts, but 1.2 billion… what!!

Got a great new shirt for Avengers fans, the Avengers Endgame Infinity Gauntlet Black T-Shirt is now in stock!!
The Curse of La Llorona did great, not such an awesome movie but still took the top spot. The real shame is Hellboy just getting crushed.
Don’t watch it at work and if you do, definitely put your headphones on.
THE BOYS is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and their formiddable Vought backing.
