‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Director Zack Snyder Calls Into Detroit Radio Station To Defend Aquaman
Well, this is a bit random. This morning Zack Snyder, director of ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Man of Steel,’ called into Detroit radio station 97.1 The Ticket in defense of Aquaman when the presenters disparaged the character. While Snyder wouldn’t say if Aquaman was in the movie or not, he did defend the character’s abilities and how they might match up against Superman. Keep in mind, Jason Momoa has been rumored to be playing the character since December, and rather conveniently it looks as if he was in Detroit at the same rock climbing gym as Gal Gadot (Gadot’s Instagram and Momoa’s Instagram) last week.

With an October 17th release in place, IFC Films has unveiled this first trailer for Peter Sattler’s ‘Camp X-Ray.’ In the film, a young woman (Kristen Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots, but ends up as a rookie guard at Guantanamo Bay. Her mission is far from black and white, as she is surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive male squadmates. When she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (‘A Separation’ star Payman Maadi), both of their worlds are forever shifted. The film, with a screenplay by Sattler, also stars Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch.
