Important investigation: what would Henry Cavill's Superman look like with a moustache?
In the true spirit of investigative journalism, we recently learned that Henry Cavill will be sporting a moustache during his Justice League reshoots, so we set to work imagining what such a thing would look like. Screw you, Failing New York Times, that Pulitzer is mine.

The 9 most insane things I saw on my trip to Disney's D23 convention
Like most people who have recently travelled to LA, I am most keen to tell people that I have recently travelled to LA. So, check this out: I recently travelled to LA to attend the D23 convention at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. D23, for those of you not familiar, is the official worldwide Disney fan club; held once every two years, the Expo is one of the fastest growing fan conventions in the world. It is also one of the most insane places I have ever been in my life.

Dunkirk fails the IMDB search algorithm for 'dunk'
Apparently, in the week of the release of one of the biggest films of the year and an early Oscar frontrunner, IMDB thinks that if you type 'Dunk' into its search bar, you are still more likely to be looking for 'Slam Dunk', a Japanese cartoon about an awesome basketball player.

Side note: Janet Jackson? What are you doing here?

Oh, hi Mark! How does James Franco sync up with Tommy Wiseau?

Hmm, it's not perfect. Gah, YOU'RE TEARING ME APART, JAMES FRANCO!

We really need to talk again about Transformers: The Last Knight
This year has seen the first female-led superhero movie, two Apocalypse Now inspired monkey movies, a curtain call for Logan, a launch of Universal's Dark Universe, and the return of Cars, Captain Jack, Renton and Xander Cage. And yet there's only one film I can't get out of my head right now.

What horrific game is played in the new image from Jigsaw?
FINALLY after a frankly ridiculous seven long years since Saw VII: The Final Chapter, Jigsaw is returning to the big screen to further tap the rich and largely unexplored concept of 'a killer kills people with killing games'. Not a moment too soon, I say!

Here are some notes on Assassin's Creed from a plane, the only acceptable place to watch it
Hello there. I am on a plane as you read this. At the time of writing, I am somewhere over Winnipeg. I'm talking to you via the wonder of £25.99 WiFi. I've been very lucky to be invited to cover the Disney D23 Expo in California over the weekend, and although I wouldn't dream of humblebragging my way through this post, it does promise to be very exciting, and I think you'll all agree that, yeah Ali, relax, you deserve this guy, great job. Anyway, before that, I have an 11-hour flight to sit through. Eleven! That's like… four movies! I'm not going to watch four movies. But I did just sit through Assassin's Creed.

More Sony franchises that need Iron Man to rescue them

More Sony franchises that need Iron Man to rescue them
Critics can't fawn over Spider-Man: Homecoming enough: hooray for a competent Spider-Man movie! There's no doubt that Marvel have to take some of the credit for Homecoming's success - Kevin Feige was parachuted into Sony HQ to save the franchise, and he did so by basically letting them have a go on Iron Man for a bit. Is it really that simple? Does adding Iron Man always improve a franchise? Sony aren't waiting around to find out: they've already green-lit the following new sequels to their existing franchises. Now to contact Robert Downey Jr and assume he's available!
