Despite receiving a handful of negative reviews from film critics, the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earned more than what was expected, and one very good reason for that is the positive feedback on Wonder Woman's big screen debut. And with the success of her very first exposure comes her first standalone movie, which according to rumors, will hit theaters next year.
But because it is still a long wait before we all can see Gal Gadot in the lead role, the makers of the film found a way to spark interest – by providing some production footage via a local TV news show in Italy, where the movie is currently shooting. The footage, according to GameSpot, shows the remarkable set in Matera, specifically built to represent "Themyscira," the home of Wonder Woman.
Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster, 2003), the film also stars Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor. The other cast members include Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy. more >>

But after surprisingly losing to late fill-in Nate Diaz in his previous fight, McGregor may have decided to retire.

On Tuesday, McGregor posted a cryptic Twitter message, announcing his retirement. The tweet goes, "I have decided to retire young. Thanks for the cheese. Catch ya's later." more >>
Semi-retired shooting guard Ray Allen once held the distinction of being one of the greatest shooters ever in basketball. But with the emergence of Golden State Warriors' Steph Curry, Allen himself admits that the reigning NBA MVP is in a league of his own.
In a recent interview with SLAM, Allen said that Curry is "creating a lane all of his own" in terms of determining the greatest shooter of all-time. Interestingly, the statement was given even before Curry became the very first player in history to hit at least 400 three-points in a single season. According to FOX Sports, he already broke the record for the most threes in a season for the third straight year. It's should be pretty curious to figure out what Allen might add to that.
Anyway, here's an excerpt of the interview: more >>
