The CBR Hallway Poll: Ben Affleck as Batman – Yay or Nay?

The CBR offices are located in the Laemmle Theater building in the NoHo Arts District in Los Angeles, California. It’s a small building that’s home to a seven screen movie theater, a Chipotle (oh, man, do we love burritos!), CBR and Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krikorian’s field office. There’s not a lot of traffic in our hallways, but enough that we thought, “HEY, WE HAVE TO TAKE THE PULSE OF THE BUILDING ON THIS BEN AFFLECK BATMAN NEWS!!!!” Well, it wasn’t quite that dramatic, but close.

We put our nifty white board on the door to our suite and asked the question of anyone walking the halls since last Friday. Here are the results.

What have we learned from our super scientific survey? That our hallway is far more supportive of Ben Affleck as Batman than the Internet as a whole is. HALLWAY FTW!

The World Ends At The CBR Speakeasy?

Team CBR might be planning their own in-studio pub crawl to celebrate the opening of “The World’s End.” I think Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, & Nick Frost would approve, don’t you? Thanks to Focus Features for sending these over — they’ll be properly used in the CBR Speakeasy, for sure.

For more on “The World’s End,” check out the review on Spinoff Online by Josh Wigler.


Goofing Off on the Docks at Comic-con

Love this Charlie’s Angels inspired photo of me, Video Producer Remy Minnick and my assistant Andhrea Gapunay on the docks outside the CBR Yacht!

The set turned out nice year.

These SDCC WB Bags are too fun!

Here’s my assistant Andhrea wearing the giant ARROW bag. Love it! It’s functional, it’s fashionable!

Editor Steve Sunu dons one of the massive WB bags that have capes this year. Obviously he’s hard at work. Also, video editor Seth Sherwood in the background checking footage.

You’re Next masks will freak you out!

Our friends at LIONSGATE sent over a Comic-Con care package filled with water, pens, note pads, sun screen, hand sanitizer, a Subway gift card and more, plus this freaky ass mask from YOU’RE NEXT that CBR video producer Remy Minnick was kind enough to wear. We’re making him wear it all day today as he toils away on our Comic-Con schedule. It’s not awkward at all!

Who will you tip – The Joker or Lex Luthor?

Love the comic book theming of the tip jar at SteamPunk Coffee Bar in North Hollywood, CA. I tipped The Joker, naturally.
