Zack Snyder’s Justice League finally has its first trailer

Zack Snyder’s Justice League | Official Teaser | HBO Max

It’s only going to take four years and a controversial fan campaign to happen, but Zack Snyder will finally bring his vision for Justice League to audiences in 2021 — and now the appropriately titled Zack Snyder’s Justice League has its first, official trailer.

Snyder premiered the trailer August 22 during the DC FanDome event, a virtual comic convention of sorts with online panels dedicated to various projects featuring DC Comics characters. During the Justice League panel, Snyder recounted the long road to the screen his preferred cut of the film has taken — a journey that will culminate in Zack Snyder’s Justice League premiering on HBO Max next year.

The fifth installment of Warner Bros. Pictures’ live-action DC Extended Universe, Justice League originally premiered in November 2017. The film had Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) team up with Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to battle an alien invasion force led by the powerful Steppenwolf. Their efforts lead to the resurrection of Superman (Henry Cavill), who sacrificed his life in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the Man of Steel’s return comes with its own, deadly set of problems.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League will offer an extended, recut version of the 2017 film that aligns more closely with Snyder’s original vision for the project. Snyder exited Justice League during the production of the film due to a family tragedy and was replaced by The Avengers director Joss Whedon. The film was met with underwhelming ticket sales and negative reviews from both professional critics and general audiences, and ended up becoming one of the lowest-grossing films in the DCEU both domestically and worldwide.

Snyder’s cut of the film is expected to restore all of the work he did on the film before departing the project — much of which was reportedly scrapped by Whedon.

All the Saw movies, ranked from worst to best
Billy the Puppet from the Saw franchise.

This weekend, Saw X is out in theaters and the latest sequel is keeping the legacy of Jigsaw alive. Or we could call it a "midquel" if you prefer, because the film's story is set between Saw and Saw II. Since the first movie's debut in 2004, Saw has proven to be one of the most resilient and best franchises in horror alongside The Conjuring and Insidious. Not even killing off the main character has prevented Lionsgate from revisiting Jigsaw and his apprentices again and again. The movies have even made Jigsaw's puppet, Billy (pictured above), into one of the franchise's most iconic creations.

Now that Saw X has arrived, this is the perfect opportunity to rank all 10 of the movies in the Saw franchise. There's definitely a dramatic drop in quality from the worst film to the very best. But it's also worth saying that Saw X offers some promising signs that the filmmakers may have finally recognized why the franchise was floundering and come up with some ideas as to how it might continue beyond its 20th anniversary next year.

The 10 most popular shows on Max right now
A promotional image from HBO's Savior Complex.

The latest update of the 10 most popular shows on Max has arrived, and for the third week in a row, the original animated series Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake is No. 1 on the list, thanks in large part to a fresh episode of the show. However, this week marks the first time that three of the AMC+ shows on loan to Max have dropped out of the top 10. So Killing Eve, Interview with the Vampire, and Gangs of London are out, while TLC reality shows like Welcome to Plathville and Sister Wives are in. That really puts the Discovery in Warner Bros. Discovery.

This week's biggest addition is the HBO documentary Savior Complex, which debuted at No. 3. Meanwhile, the racy British dating show Naked Attraction remains near the top spot at No. 2. Never say that sex doesn't sell, because it clearly does. As of September 29, these are the 10 most popular shows on Max right now.
