JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017)

The wait is now over, and probably one of the most anticipated movies of 2017 is finally hitting aussie cinema screens; achieving a whopping $325-million-dollar release (deadline.com), a huge win for the DCEU and Warner Bros.

But with its predecessor films (not including critically acclaimed Wonder Woman), lying dead within a field of rotten tomatoes, can we be excited by DC’s hopeful, first team-up theatrical?

The Mummy (2017)

Tom Cruise helms this re-imagining of a movie monster classic; The Mummy, in an action packed, visual ‘feast for the eyes’ Hollywood movie, complete with insane stunts and underdeveloped characters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

This whimsical film is a myriad of mess and magic as the new Harry Potter spin off tale tries its best to capture the nostalgia of the original tales. Though it wows in conception and screenplay, it fails to entice viewers with complex story archs and dizzying visual effects, losing much of the raw beauty of the wizarding world portrayed in the Harry Potter films.
