Watch the First ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer

San Diego’s Comic-Con has now called it a weekend, with the four-day “nerd” convention ending last night. Among all the cosplay and famous actors roaming the hallways, some of the most anticipated things were the trailers for the lengthy list of upcoming superhero films and television series.

One of the most anticipated trailers ended up being David Ayers’ Suicide Squad. Most of the cast was on hand during their panel with the exception of the Joker himself, Jared Leto, who is probably somewhere across the world performing with 30 Seconds to Mars.

During the panel, the first trailer for the supervillan-centric film was unveiled and of course, not everyone listened to the warnings of not filming what was shown at the convention panels, and that’s how we got a bootlegged version of the trailer.

Instead of letting the bootlegged version of the trailer run free on the internet, Warner Bros. decided to release the complete trailer.

Check out the trailer below.

Suicide Squad will hit theaters on Aug. 5, 2015.

Craig Aaronson (A&R for Jimmy Eat World, My Chemical Romance, and More) Passed Away

In news that feels like a dagger to the heart, the A&R guy responsible for discovering many of the bands that helped shape our music taste and love of music, passed away.

According to several music publications including Billboard and Alternative Press, Craig Aaronson famed A&R guy from Warner Bros., passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer.

It's with great sadness in our hearts that we write this message to you all. An integral part of our A7X family has passed away. Craig Aaronson was one of the driving forces behind our decision to sign with Warner Brothers Records back in 2004 along with Tom Whalley and Andy Olyphant. We had heard horror stories about independent bands signing with major labels so when we first met Craig we were skeptical. We ended up trusting him and Warner Brothers Records and in the end we are glad that we did. Craig had not only been a personal friend to us through the years, but also helped spearhead many of the bands successes, including allowing us to have complete creative control throughout all of our albums. No matter what we handed into the label he would get behind it and go to work. Our manager Larry Jacobson has always said working with Craig was like working with a partner, always agreeable even when you disagreed, and because of that, A7X and WBR got so many good things done together. A couple of years ago Craig left Warner Brothers to do other things, we were saddened by his decision but realized he needed to move on. A few months later we were informed that Craig had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. While on chemo Craig still made it out to our Hail to the King album release show in Los Angeles earlier this year. We were all blown away by his dedication and will to live. Sadly, yesterday he lost the battle against cancer. He is survived by an amazing wife and kids. We will always be grateful to Craig and everything he has done for us. He has done the same for many other countless bands and without a doubt will be sorely missed. Thank you for everything Craig. Love A7X P.S. Life is too short, spend some extra time with the ones you love today.

Aaronson was most well-know for bringing bands such as My Chemical Romance, The Used, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Avenged Sevenfold, Against Me! and more to the label and helping them reach success.

If anyone needs an example of Aaronson’s enthusiasm for the bands he helped discover and love of his job, the perfect example can be found on MCR’s first DVD, Life on the Murder Scene where we see Aaronson listening to some new tracks the band were working on at the time and how passionately excited he got while listening to them.

Aaronson kicked off his lengthy resume of successful bands by signing Jimmy Eat World back in 1995 to Capitol before leaving and getting his job at Warner Bros. Jimmy Eat World recently wrote about that and how when they had no money, Aaronson had let them sleep in his house.

All we can say is thank you very much for discovering those bands and we owe you a lot, Craig. You had a role in helping shape who we are today.

Warner Bros. Announce DC Entertainment Films Among Others


DC Comics has officially taken the war against longtime competitor Marvel Comics to the big screen.

Marvel has seen success in recent years thanks to the big screen adaptations of some of their beloved characters like Iron Man, Thor, and of course The Avengers as a whole. But today, Warner Bros. made an announcement that might result in Marvel and their parent company, Walt Disney, watching their back.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tuijihara announced plans for their DC Entertainment properties this morning which included ten DC movies to be released between 2016 and 2020. Three Harry Potter spin-offs and three Lego movies were also announced.

The on slaughter of DC movies will begin with the much-anticipated and talked about (#Batfleck?) Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice set for a March 2016 release date. Originally, the film was supposed to be released in May 2016, but Warner Bros. decided to move up the date to avoid competition from Marvel’s Captain America 3 reportedly due out around at that time.

In August, Warner Bros. had announced nine untitled releases for those years and now we have the official names for each film.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
Suicide Squad – directed by David Ayer (2016)
Wonder Woman  starring Gal Gadot (2017)
Justice League Part One – directed by Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
The Flash – starring Ezra Miller (2018)
Aquaman – starring Jason Momoa (2018)
Shazam – Dwayne Johnson said he would be playing Black Adam(2019)
Justice League Part Two – directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
Cyborg starring Ray Fisher (2020)
Green Lantern (2020)

Aside from the DC Comics, Warner Bros also announced three Harry Potter spin-offs which are set to be released in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively. The films will follow the book series/ film franchise’s mythology based on author J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them novella.

The first of three films will act as Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter and will be directed by Harry Potter director, David Yates.

The Lego Movie which saw major success earlier this year, will also be coming back with three movies over the course of four years. Ninjago in 2016, followed by The Lego Batman Movie in 2017, and The Lego Movie 2 in 2018.

Prince to Return with Two New Albums


The purple one is making a comeback!

That’s right, Prince has announced that he will be returning to the music world with not one, but two new albums. The albums will be the highly anticipated Art Official Age and Plectrumelectrum. Art Official Age will be Prince’s solo album, while Plectrumelectrum will be from his new band, 3RDEYEGIRL.

“Prince is one of just a handful of visionary artists who have truly reshaped and redefined modern music and culture,” said Warner Bros. Records Chairman & CEO Cameron Strang.

“For the past 35 years, he has never stopped evolving, challenging himself, reinventing his sound, and pushing boundaries. In true Prince fashion, he has just given us not one, but two extraordinary albums that express the incredible range and depth of his talent. All of us at WBR are immensely proud to be working with Prince to bring this brilliant new music to his legions of fans around the world, and needless to say we are thrilled to be working in partnership with him again.”
Both record are set to be released on September 30, but don’t expect it to be a joint record; the albums will be sold separately. Currently, both of them are available for pre-orders through digital retailers as well as Prince’s official website.

For those wanting to purchase the records early, the singer has revealed that fans will be able to unlock “instant grat” tracks from each record.

And that’s not even the end of the gift that is Prince. According to sources, the album releases will be marked by a series of “very special events” taking place globally. As of now, there has been no confirmation as to what exactly that means, but a confirmation should be set for soon.

Gerard Way Makes Official Solo Debut


Former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way officially made his solo debut this past weekend at Warner Bros. headquarters in Burbank, CA.

The frontman treated the people at Warner Bros. to several of his new tracks including lead single, “Action Cat” and another new track “Juarez” which will be featured on his upcoming solo debut record, Hesitant Alien.

At the time of the showcase, which took place last Friday, there were only a handful of clips and pictures from the performance since it was an intimate thing at the record label’s headquarters.

Thanks to some dude on YouTube, complete footage of both songs has now been acquired. In the video, you can also see that the group has now been dubbed, Gerard Way and the Hormones, because apparently you “can’t have rock and roll with out them,” at least according to Way.


“Action Cat”:

The showcase should not come as a surprise because for a week ro so now, there has been talk that Way would perform a secret show before his official solo debut at Reading and Leeds during the weekend of August 22-24.

My Chemical Romance Announce Details About Greatest Hits


When it was confirmed that My Chemical Romance would be coming out with a new album, let’s just say some of us were over the moon. When we were told that it was nothing more than a greatest hits album, the excitement somewhat diminished, but still there was hope that maybe some of the tracks from the ill-fated fifth album would make its way onto the upcoming compilation.

Well, it looks like some of the hoping has come in our favor because during the weekend, the band released a joint statement about the greatest hits album confirming that some never-before-released tracks would be featured on the album.

Also confirmed in the statement was the release date for May Death Never Stop You. Giving fans somewhat of a closure, the release dated has been confirmed for March 25; a year after the band decided to call it a day.

Read the full statement below and yes, Mikey Way did sign the end “Mike.” It’s definitely the end of an era.

“Hello all,

On March 25, we will be releasing a greatest hits album entitled “May Death Never Stop You.” The title is fitting, because as sad as it was to say goodbye to the band, we look at this collection as a celebration of our best songs, and hope the memory of them continues to bring joy to you all as they have for us.

The album also includes some previously unreleased material, including the infamous “Attic Demos,” and one of the last songs we worked on in the studio together.

On January 21, we will be opening pre-orders for the album right here on our site. We hope you take the journey with us into MCR’s past, and enjoy the small taste of what might have been.


Ray, Gerard, Frank, Mike”
