A movie that didn’t really make much of a wave at TIFF last year, “Message From The King” (our review) is now destined to live in the corners of Netflix you probably don’t venture into very often.

“Berlin Syndrome” is a different kind of serial killer thriller: one that slows the predator/prey process down, in order to focus on the clinical and psychological details. Imagine a version of “The Silence of the Lambs” that’s entirely about Buffalo Bill and Catherine Martin, the woman he traps in his pit.

With DC Films‘ “The Batman” gearing up to shoot next spring, we still don’t know much except that it will feature Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, and Ben Affleck has co-written the script, will direct, and of course, wear the cape and cowl. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s getting friends and strangers ringing him up, to see if he needs them for any roles.
