El Camino A Breaking Bad Movie review: Aaron Paul gives a brilliant, nuanced performance in this Breaking Bad sequel movie. In terms of look and feel, it feels like a particularly eventful episode of the show.
Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker was envisioned by Todd Phillips, best known for the Hangover trilogy. He pitched an idea to Warner Bros about making DC movies that were set on a smaller scale, were low-budgeted and told intimate character-based stories instead of trying to beat MCU at its own game.

Batman has been played by Hollywood superstars like Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and most recently, Ben Affleck. On Batman Day, let's revisit the character's adaptations in live-action television and cinema.
Spider-Man, starring Tobey Maguire in the lead role, was the harbinger for the current times in cinema, when the superhero genre has become so utterly dominant. Spider-Man was the springboard that launched future Marvel films, including the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Inception, released in 2010, reinforced Christopher Nolan's reputation as that rare auteur who employs a layered, high-concept script in a summer blockbuster and finds success. The story follows Leonardo DiCaprio's Dominick "Dom" Cobb, an "extractor" who steals thoughts or ideas from the minds of people through a shared dream world.
Star Wars featured an overarching conflict between an empire and a group of rebels. This was an immersive, dazzlingly-detailed world populated with noble heroes, malevolent villains and a sarcastic scoundrel. Here how the film was made.
If Iron Man had failed, it is probably safe to say the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it would not exist. Everything else -- the Avengers, Thanos and what came later -- depended on the film's success.
