The ‘Justice League’ Poster Reminds Us Of ‘Batman Forever’

Warner Bros.

‘Justice League’ poster

Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. dropped a new Justice League poster yesterday. If the colors and layout reminded you of something, that may not have been an accident. Yes, the poster art, in terms of its design and intent, is not unlike the posters for Joel Schumacher’s Batman sequels. The character layouts are not unlike the Batman Robin poster, while the action-y poses are similar to the Batman Forever one-sheet. Be it coincidence or design, it’s just another way that Warner Bros. hopes that Justice League, in terms of audience reception and box office uptick, will play like Batman Forever.

If you’re an old man like me, you might remember the outcry that greeted the release of Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. The Michael Keaton/Danny DeVito/Michelle Pfeiffer/Christopher Walken action sequel was, of course, the follow-up to Burton’s record-crushing Batman from

ROAM-ing around with Victoria’s pet searcher service

“I’m very sorry, we had to poster for a cat this morning,” said Lesli Steeves during our third call to finalize this interview. “What can I say? Cats and cars do not mix.”

In our next conversation, Steeves confirms the cat in question was found “safe and unhurt.”

Steeves is one of the nine volunteer administrators behind ROAM (Reuniting Owners and Animals Missing), an organization that works, as their acronym spells out (kind of), to reunite owners and missing pets. Based out of members’ respective homes across Victoria, this group of animal lovers works full-time hours to operate two

Sean Young’s fall from stardom is a story that sounds all too familiar right now

As “Blade Runner 2049” brings Ridley Scott’s original 1982 sci-fi masterpiece back into the news cycle, the biggest question on people’s minds isn’t whether Rick Deckard was indeed a replicant — but what the hell happened to Sean Young? The actress was a hot commodity back in the 1980s, with roles in movies like “Dune,” “No Way Out” and “Wall Street.” Then she ended up playing a tough-as-nails police lieutenant with a dick in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.” So what the hell?

In 2015, long before the dozens of accusations of rape and assault at the hands of Miramax head honcho Harvey Weinstein were made public, The Guardian’s Danny Leigh reached out to Young for an interview to coincide with the rerelease of “Blade Runner.” Her final request to Leigh, whom she admitted regretted ever responding to: “Please don’t write shit about me, OK?”

Leigh was curious why

The Dust of Time

Cuangar must be the strangest town in Africa, thought Okone as he lay on a lumpy straw mattress, in a chalky bed and breakfast that peered out west, onto the congruent jawline of Namibia’s skeleton coast. The five-hour drive from Windhoek was bumpy and had worn him out. It wasn’t in his nature to wonder far beyond the capital, where he spent his time as a quasi-archeologist digging up ruins from the ancient city of Silwa, on which Portuguese colonialists heedlessly built their city, Windhoek. Centuries of sand dunes had kept the primeval Kho khoi settlement hidden, but a new wind blew in from the north, and it slowly roused the days of old.

Okone couldn’t remember the last time his efforts brought forth

Waikato’s own pet detective reunites stolen cat with owners – NZ …

A much-loved moggy who went missing when the car he was in was stolen has been reunited with his owners.

The car was stolen last week from Tauranga and police pulled the vehicle over in Hamilton, but Murray the cat was nowhere to be seen.

Waikato Police community liaison Jack Driver said the Waikato Tactical Crime Unit found out the car had stopped in Te Aroha on the way to Hamilton. One of the police officers went back to Te Aroha and started asking around about the cat.

“They went down an alley way where there happened to be a child walking through who they spoke to about the cat and he said ‘yeah I’ve seen that cat’.

The child took them to a house and as they approached the house, the cat appeared from under the deck.
