Do ya really wanna, do ya really wanna taste it? The trailer for new TV show Peacemaker shows why James Gunn's creation was a standout character from darkly comic DC Comics blockbuster The Suicide Squad , as the gun-loving super-lunk played by John Cena blasts his way onto HBO Max in the new year. The first trailer was shown to press at the Television Critics' Association press tour Sept. 22, and the public got to see it at virtual fan event DC Fandome on Saturday. To the tune of Wig Wam's soft rock banger Do Ya Wanna Taste It? the trailer also revealed a release date for the show. The eight-episode spinoff series is written by the film's writer and director, James Gunn. Judging by Gunn's gory, glorious Suicide Squad flick, the Peacemaker series is likely to be violent, profane and a heck of a lot of shiny-helmeted fun. Peacemaker release date The spinoff show will stream on HBO Max on Jan. 13, 2022.

Warning: Spoilers ahead! Spoilers ahead! The Suicide Squad lives up to its name with most of the cast being killed off in a gleefully gory mission . But one member of the DC comics cast gets a second chance in the post-credits scene (or technically, mid-credits scene) of the new movie. This new 2021 Suicide Squad sequel/reboot is a scabrous, side-splitting and surprisingly smart supervillain romp, as I note in my CNET review . It's in theaters now (even if it isn't making a ton of money) and is available to stream on HBO Max HBO Max until September 5. When the smoke clears, let's see how the movie's climactic scene sets up the forthcoming Peacemaker TV series , which the film's director James Gunn and star John Cena are bringing to streaming service HBO Max in 2022.

If writer and director James Gunn has a trademark, it's his use of toe-tapping pop music. That, and also sickening violence. His films Guardians of the Galaxy , Super, and Slither are filled with classic rock tunes, and sure enough his latest movie, the 2021 version of DC's The Suicide Squad , is bursting with ear-catching pop nuggets. Plus, from opening massacre to bonkers ending and post-credits scene , hilariously gory death. Although it isn't doing great in theaters (possibly because it's also streaming now on HBO Max ), this Suicide Squad sequel/reboot is a "scabrous, side-splitting and surprisingly smart supervillain romp", as I exclaimed in my CNET review . We want to celebrate DC's latest adventure in the same tone as the colorful, irreverent, utterly vile film itself, and what better way than with a good old-fashioned ranking. People love ranking things! From indie darlings the Decemberists and Pixies to classic rock gods Kansas to a human person with … [Read more...] about The Suicide Squad: Let’s rank the music and the gory kills, because why not
The Suicide Squad , now in theaters and on HBO Max , is a raucous adventure filled with righteous action, glorious gore and a sick sense of humor. It builds to a truly bonkers ending (and a post-credits scene setting up a new Peacemaker TV series ) which may have left you as dazed as the film's giant slow-witted King Shark, so here's all the details of the 2021 Suicide Squad jaw-dropping climax. The 2021 Suicide Squad sequel/reboot is a scabrous, side-splitting and surprisingly smart supervillain romp, as I note in my CNET review .

A woman who was injured in the large apartment bombing in Gothenburg, Sweden late last month has died in a local hospital. The woman was one of 16 people who were injured and taken to the hospital in the aftermath of the explosion, which took place late last month in the Annedal district of Gothenburg at around 5 a.m. Stefan Gustafsson, press spokesperson for the police in the western region, commented on the case, telling broadcaster SVT: “It has been investigated as attempted murder, now it is a completed murder. It is tragic that it led to a death.” While most of the 16 people hospitalised following the bombing were taken in with symptoms such as smoke inhalation, four of the victims were taken to critical care. All but the now-deceased woman were able to recover from their serious injuries.

Big No Time To Die spoilers follow. Watch the film before reading this. They actually went and did it… For a franchise that’s spent most of its six decades adhering to a strict formula, No Time to Die’s final act was as bold as they come. Not only was perennial singleton James Bond on the verge of becoming a family man, he was unexpectedly (and definitively) killed off at the sharp end of a barrage of missiles. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. One of Hollywood’s biggest certainties – that 007 can, and will, walk out of any situation intact – was instantly turned on its head. This was unfamiliar, through-the-looking glass territory – and all the more exhilarating for it. But perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised. Ever since Daniel Craig first ran through walls in Casino Royale, his tenure at MI6 has been characterized by a desire to work outside conventional mission parameters. Craig’s five movies haven’t always hit the target – No Time to Die … [Read more...] about Daniel Craig’s James Bond movies show where the Star Wars sequels went wrong
Let's jump into a time machine and visit the magical days of the early 1990s, the formative years for older millennials. Disney enjoyed a golden age, with blockbuster films like Aladdin , Beauty and the Beast , The Lion King , and The Little Mermaid hitting theaters. Besides those massive movies, Disney also made a daily impression on kids with its televised Disney Afternoon cartoon block. Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers , Darkwing Duck , DuckTales , and TaleSpin were must-watch TV for any kid who just got home from school between 1990 and 1997. Additionally, Disney Afternoon spawned some of the best platforming games on the Nintendo Entertainment System, thanks to developer Capcom. And, 20 years later, the excellent Disney Afternoon Collection PC game . The company that created Mega Man developed six NES games based on the four aforementioned cartoons: Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, and TaleSpin. … [Read more...] about The Disney Afternoon Collection (for PC) Review
Game Details Developer: Interceptor Publisher : 3D Realms Platform : Windows, PS4, Xbox One Release Date: January 29, 2016 Price : $35 Links: Steam | Twitter In Bombshell , the new isometric shooter from Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms, there is a shield. I know this with 100 percent certainty, because for the last third of my playthrough, every step, action, and breath I took was punctuated by a robotic voice intoning "shield activated." That’s not because I was spamming my character's comically overpowered bubble shield (though I did plenty of that), but it resulted from what I assume was a bug. I say "assume" because I'm not entirely sure that Bombshell hadn't grown sentient and developed just a bit of malice toward me. The game seems sapient enough to at least realize what a repetitive drag it had been up to that point, so maybe it turned its newborn ability to think and feel entirely toward mocking my efforts to find the fastest path to the … [Read more...] about review: An arm, a leg, and entirely too much of your time
Further Reading Spy tech goes cheap: Track your car, kid, or enemy for $10 a month Last fall, a Maryland man’s frequent activities at a local casino resulted in robbers using a GPS tracker to follow him home. Days later, they bound and gagged his two children, then stole $6,000 in cash plus an iPhone 6. If that wasn't crazy enough, Mario Guzman (a pseudonym) was also followed by someone else less than a week earlier. His wife, Alicia Guzman (another pseudonym), had hired a private investigator to keep tabs on her husband, according to a Montgomery County Police report. (Ars has changed the names of this feuding couple to protect their privacy interests.) Mario Guzman regularly drove 50 miles, six days a week, from his home in Germantown to a casino in Baltimore, according to a recently released police report that Ars obtained Tuesday from the Montgomery County Police Department. The report notes that Alicia Guzman suspected her husband of adultery and "gambling with large sums … [Read more...] about Casino thriller, IRL: Crooks track a man’s car, gag his family, and steal $6,000
