He's had a change of heart and I'm PSYCHED!
Y’all. I feel so warm and gooey inside right now. So, the great Quentin Tarantino had a pretty rough year. Shortly after announcing that he was working on a new movie, the script for that movie leaked and all hell broke loose. Tarantino came out and publicly accused some of his actors, and even attempted to sue Gawker for leaking it. Then he announced that he was not going to make the movie after all. Well, someone or something changed his mind because the project is officially back on! Click inside for more!
feat. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore & Natalie Dormer
Over the weekend I shared some great pictures from the San Diego Comic-Con Hunger Games: Mockingjay event, and I mentioned that fans there got a look at the new trailer for the movie. And today we have our first look as well! For me, the best/worst part was seeing Philip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee) in the beginning of it. But yeah, it looks pretty awesome. Peep the trailer for more!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 hits theaters November 21.
Also starring Haley Joel Osment, which is great
OMG, what is this movie?! I truly have no idea what I just watched, but since it’s a Kevin Smith movie (and he’s responsible for one of my favorite movie characters of all time), I’m kind of into it. Tusk stars Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, and it’s being described as a “wacky horror thriller” about a man who gets turned into a walrus. Lots of weirdness in the trailer, and lots of great jokes about Canada, so peep the video for more!
Tusk trailer just debuted at Comic-Con and it will be released on September 19.
Warner Bros. *just* unveiled a new promo poster that gives us our first look at actress Gal Gadot in costume as Wonder Woman as she will appear in the upcoming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (tho you may recall that we got to see Gal in costume as Diana Prince on set in Detroit back in May). As you may also recall, we learned earlier this year that this new incarnation of WW (the first ever to appear in a movie) will wear battle armor as part of her costume. As you can see below in the first
grainy photo (updated with a high res photo) of Wonder Woman, her armored costume looks sleek and — as far as I can tell — pretty damn good. Check it out. More »
Avengers Assemble, Again!
In celebration of San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel Comics has released a full set of concept poster artwork for the upcoming superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Every day, for 3 days, a pair of posters were released that show illustrations of The Avengers battling the evil forces of Ultron. Click thru the gallery to see each of the posters, including a look at what all of the posters look like assembled into one larger photo.
So... much... awesome...
Every time there’s a Comic-Con I spend about a week just hating on everyone involved, everyone in attendance, everyone everywhere. It’s not fair! I wanna go to Comic-Con! But I can’t. Luckily, we have Twitter, and many fans have been sharing some awesome pictures, especially from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay presentation. They were treated to brilliant holographic images, and a new teaser trailer. We don’t get to see that bad boy today (it comes out Monday!), but click inside for some other cool stuff!
The unsexiest interview EVER
Yesterday we finally got to see the FIRST trailer for the much-ballyhooed big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey and today we get to see the first joint interview given by Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson about the film. Jamie and Dakota made an appearance on the Today show yesterday for the worldwide premiere of the trailer and as you can see above, their interview was probably THE most unsexy thing you’ve ever seen. Jamie comes off as cutely shy, Dakota comes off … well, poorly, IMHO. It’s interesting to see their chemistry in this interview and then compare it to the way their characters relate in the movie. I think Fifty Shades will turn out to be a hugely successful mess. People will see it for curiosity’s sake, even if it’s terrible. I’m going for Jamie, no doubt. This interview makes me like him more. I can’t say the same for Dakota, tho :/
Yesterday, in honor of the 75th anniversary of Batman, the cape and cowl that Ben Affleck will wear as The Dark Knight in the upcoming superhero film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was put on display at San Diego Comic-Con this week. Today we get to see a new photo of Affleck wearing his new Batman cape and cowl that has also been released in conjunction with SDCC. DC Comics has installed a 75th anniversary wall in honor of the Batman character and among the photos on display is only the second photo of Ben Affleck in costume as Batman (the first photo was released back in May, as you may recall). Click below to see this new Batman image in full. More »
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder posted a photo on Twitter last night that is so curiously weird that I has to be shared far and wide. Ahead of the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Snyder shared a photo that shows Henry Cavill‘s Superman character dressed up as a jedi from Star Wars. TECHNICALLY, not to get all geeky, the fact that he’s wearing a black robe and is wielding a red lightsaber, means that he’s more likely a sith (eg. a bad jedi) but that’s beside the point. What in the world could a Superman/Star Wars mash-up photo mean? More »
'Dead Men Tell No Tales'
After it seemed very likely that Johnny Depp would not return for another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, it has been announced that Disney has successfully convinced Depp to return for a 5th Pirates movie that is set for a 2017 release. My guess is that Johnny‘s most recent movie flops (most notably The Lone Ranger, OOF) have convinced him to stick with a movie formula that he knows will work. A fifth Pirates movie has been bandied about for some time now with a tentative title Dead Men Tell No Tales. It’s unknown if the title will stick but we do know, for sure, that the 5th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is on the way! More »
