viewed over 3 million times in North America alone. Their next foray into the world of cinema will be the start of their four movie deal with Adam Sandler, and the majority of the press over the first film, The Ridiculous Six, has been the abhorrent racism occurring towards Apache culture in the film causing several Native American actors and a cultural adviser to leave the project. Netflix is obviously hoping the conversation can now shift over to the movie itself with the release of the first trailer for The Ridiculous Six, which you can watch below.
After launching Green Arrow and The Flash to their own individual TV shows, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg have shifted their attention to getting a third DC Comics mainstay her own television program; Supergirl. While she's been a mainstay in a number of animated TV shows for years now, her live-action appearances have been limited to a recurring role on Smallville, her own 1984 solo feature film featuring Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole and a brief cameo in a segment in Movie 43 where she was played by Kristen Bell. Thanks to the massive marketing campaign they've given the show, it's fairly obvious that CBS hopes this new show will take her to the next level of pop culture recognition.

The scene in question has been taken off of YouTube, but basically, it depicts Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) after they've set off to find Claire's nephews who are lost in the park. In order to avoid detection by the various dinos (some of which like to munch on humans), Owen suggests that he and Claire smear dinosaur feces on their bodies. While Owen simply gets some of the stuff on his arms, Claire covers her legs and chest in droppings. Her applying the stuff to her body is depicted in the same fashion lotion commercials depict women rubbing lotion on their various body parts i.e. in a manner that's meant to be alluring.
Continuing the tradition of the Jurassic Park films having at least one scene dedicated to dinosaur droppings (only The Lost World: Jurassic Park bucked this trend, though the rest of the movie was crappy enough to make up for that omission), this scene seems like one that would have sent the movies intense tone careening off into oblivion as well as continuing the entire features troubling gender politics. Claire can't just rub the crap (literally!) onto her arms like Owen, she has to do it in a weirdly seductive manner. It also appears like this scene attempts to establish the first time where Owen begins to rekindle his romantic feelings for Claire, and I'm not quite sure if this is worse than the way the final cut of Jurassic World handled the duos relationship, which culminated in a Man Of Steel-esque kiss while innocent civilians are being plucked by pterodactyls.

But what we do know is that this thing has some beautiful sets and shots, holy hell. This looks like a magnificently crafted film when it comes to its numerous technical aspects (costumes, sets, etc.), with that opening shot of Rey (Daisy Ridley) waltzing around an abandoned spaceship alone giving me shivers. And oh my God, Harrison Ford looks awesome as Han Solo. Is he...is he actually emoting? Good for him! Plus, Oscar Isaac looks to be in trouble, poor Finn (John Boyega) is trying to hold his own in a lightsaber fight against Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and our first look at Leia (Carrie Fisher)!
I don't think there really needed to be any marketing to get everyone to go see a new Star Wars movie, but goddamn if this new trailer and its marketing forefathers haven't done the trick.

Terminator: Genisys went bust at the box office this past summer (it managed to sell fewer tickets than the 1984 Terminator film domestically), it's no shocker that the Chief Creative Officer at Skydance (the production house that was responsible for this newest Terminator film), Dana Goldberg, attempted to put a happy face on the whole debacle. She confirmed that Skydance was going forth on their effort to create a universe of Terminator related media. It seems to have been forgotten as Genisys came out, but the initial deal with Skydance and Terminator included not only a trilogy of new films, but also a TV show chronicling young Sarah Connor growing up with the Terminator sent back in time to protect her.
