Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer Easter Eggs
Earlier this week, the new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrived, which gave us our first look at the massive villain Doomsday. While some think the trailer gave away too many details, Mr. Sunday Movies has put together a new four-minute video that breaks down all of the Easter Eggs to be found in this new footage. While there aren't any particular "spoilers" in this video, the trailer does reveal a lot more than some fans would have liked, so if you're averse to spoilers and haven't seen the trailer yet, you may want to avoid this video.
Everything Wrong With the Captain America: Civil War Trailer

Movie characters sing Adele's "Hello" in New Mashup
YouTuber Matthijs Vlot decided to capitalize on the success of Adele's hit single "Hello" by putting together a wildly entertaining mashup that features a slew of different movie characters "singing" this beloved song. It doesn't exactly match up with the melody at times, but it's still quite hilarious.
