Ben Affleck as Batman
Batman is celebrating his 75th birthday at this year's Comic Con, and to honor the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. unveiled a new photo of Ben Affleck wearing the hero's famed cowl at the annual pop culture event.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still nearly two years away, it's a good bet that DC Comics will be using the occasion to steal a little thunder from rival Marvel Comics, which will be trotting out several superhero films between now and then, beginning with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens August 1 and will be the studio's main focus at Comic Con.

The new "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer is drumming up controversy from conservative groups who aren't fond of what they believe shows violence against women.

Dawn Hawkins is the executive director of Morality in Media, which fights against porn and indecency. She believes the trailer "deceives the public with a visually appealing melodramatic love story that romanticizes and normalizes sexual violence."

She added that the film promotes "rape and sexual violence culture [that] is now permeating our society."

The film centers on a college student, Anastasia Steele, who embarks on an S&M re...

You Won't Believe What Type Of Hair Was Used For Dwayne Johnson'
Dwayne Johnson was shocked when he found out what kind of hair was used to make his "Hercules" beard.

The actor was forced to spend three hours in the make-up chair every day to portray the Greek demigod, and the process got him thinking about what exactly was being put on his face.

He explained on "Live With Kelly & Michael," "The beard hair... had to be put on, strips cut, inch high, quarter inch wide, piece by piece. I asked my Italian designer, I said, 'Matteo, what is this?' He goes, 'Oh, it's the hair from a yak'. It's very expensive, very fine hair... He was putting it on my face a...

The nice thing about hosting a talk show on ABC is that parent company Disney sends over the entire cast of their blockbuster superhero films.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Dave Bautista appeared together to discuss the making of the film and some of their odd interactions with one another. The comedic Pratt was in his element, explaining his Zumba and Shake Weight workout regimen and reveali...

Review: While Sensual, Polanski's 'Venus In Fur' Is Unsatisfying and Stoic

Review: While Sensual, Polanski's 'Venus In Fur' Is Unsatisfying
It’s funny that way back in 1965 filmmaker Roman Polanski had all but mastered drama in a single space. The picture was called "Repulsion" and featured French actress Catherine Deneuve as a gal who is driven to madness inside her small London apartment. It was a movie experience that in the hands of Polanski went way beyond the confines of one location – it was an asset not a burden. Which is why the last few films directed by Polanski, including the new "Venus In Fur," have been such a terrible disappointment. Not just because they’ve been based on Broadway plays (also see "Carnage") o...

Review: Post-Apocalyptic Flick 'Aftermath' A Classic Case Of Bee
With post-apocalyptic films having been done to death, it’s hard for a film with such a subject to captivate with any sort of fresh perspective. Most recently it was surprisingly accomplished by filmmaker Xavier Gens who examined the after effects on the human animal with his dark and moody flick "The Divide." It’s what makes the arrival of the below average thriller titled "Aftermath" even less welcome. It’s yet another look at survivors after the use of nuclear weapons and comes off like "The Divide" light complete with characters we don’t care about and situations already seen – been ...
