UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 17th to Sunday 19th October 2014…
Despite “mixed” reviews from its U.S. release, Jonathan Leibesman and Michael Bay’s live-action reboot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles enjoyed the biggest UK debut since The Inbetweeners 2, pulling in a solid £4,785,448 including £1.56 million in previews to knock Gone Girl from the top of the chart in its opening weekend.

The Age of Ultron is nearly upon us. Tonight's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. featured an announcement that the first glimpse of the Avengers sequel will come during next Tuesday's broadcast. The film itself isn't due in theaters until May 1 of next year, so this preview will likely be just a tease of things to come from the metal madman who tries to save the world by wiping it free of human life.

Marvel has finally offered up a firm release date for the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. You won't see it in movie theaters or online. Nope; this hotly anticipated trailer will make its debut in primetime.
Next week's new episode of Agents of Shield is where Marvel has chosen to debut the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. Specifically, the trailer will be seen sometime in the hour starting at 9/8c on Tuesday, October 28. Expect Agents of Shield ratings for that episode to get a healthy bump as a result.
The expectation is that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer will closely resemble the Comic-Con footage that premiered this past July to a select audience of around 6,000 fans and journalists in San Diego, California. What's certain is that the trailer will start popping up online within seconds of its TV debut, hopefully starting with the official Marvel YouTube channel. »

If you were an actor starring in some big, flashy superhero movie, of course you're gonna want to take something home with you--if only to prove to your grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) that you were, like, totally cool back in the day. When it comes to the folks at Marvel, though, they don't like props leaving the set. I've personally been on the set of four Marvel movies, and when the taking-home-souvenirs question inevitably comes up (it always does), the answer is: nope. Not happening. That's because Marvel is very particular when it comes to holding on to every little prop from each of its films, mainly because the studio might need it again for the sequel(s). Knowing that firsthand, it's surprising to hear this story about Robert Downey Jr., who...

Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I know I sure didn't. A massive bombshell was dropped late at night last Monday when we all discovered that Marvel had been negotiating with Robert Downey Jr to tweak his contract and allow for another film in his deal. Of course...that particular bit of information was nothing new, right? We all saw Rdj hemming and hawing for the last several weeks about what was going on, and we all just went along with it and assumed it really did have something to do with a potential Iron Man 4 film (well, at least now we know the reason Rdj had been jerking us all around: keep us focused on whether or not Iron Man 4 was happening, and we would never see the news about Captain America 3 coming. That sly, brilliant Sob!) . No, the surprise came when we finally »
At the end of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, after the Battle for New York the only part of the "Stark" logo that remained at the top of Stark Tower was the giant "A" that serves as the Avengers emblem. Well, according to Robert Downey Jr., Marvel game him that giant prop. It's not uncommon for actors to take take home props from the films they work on. Downey Jr. also owns some of the Iron Man helmets used in the movies that he has been in. He may not own a full suit, but now he has a 30-foot Avengers logo to put in his office. The actor told the story of how this all came about in an interview with BBC Radio 1 (via: ComicBook.com).
"On the last Avengers, there's this scene where there's this 'A' which is probably 30 feet tall and I'm looking at it, and we're shooting in England, »

The Museum Of London’s Sherlock Holmes exhibition is packed with nerd gold for Doyle fans…
Just before the entrance to the final room of the Museum Of London’s superbly comprehensive Sherlock Holmes exhibition, three objects - a deerstalker hat, a calabash pipe, and a magnifying glass - are mounted on a white wall. In between those three objects is blank space, room enough for someone to duck in, pose in profile, and momentarily occupy the silhouette of the great detective. It’s a neat distillation of Sherlock Holmes’ iconic (and non-literary, as fans will happily tell you) popular image, but also tells us something about the nature of the fandom that surrounds him. In between Holmes’ fixed compass points - hat, pipe and glass; or deductions, Watson and London - is a vessel into which we can pour ourselves and our interpretations.

Robert Downey Jr. is front and centre stage throughout almost all of The Judge, and giving a typically high-energy, irresistible performance. I spoke to the film’s director David Dobkin about the practicalities of working with such a full-on, super-confident performer, about creating a space for actors in general, but also about the film’s very specific, carefully conceived look. It was like taking a ten minute film school in everything from lighting to lenses to rehearsal to editing.
When I think back on your film, I can’t not see that colour palette. It’s really controlled.
Yes. I’m glad you noticed that. I think you have to, as a filmmaker, be aware that everything people see or experience is part of the feeling that you create. Colours do create a feeling, »

We recently posted news that Robert Downey Jr. is very close to signing on to play Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, in Captain America 3. Lots of readers decried the news as false despite originating from Variety, who debunks or confirms rumors, but is not in the business of creating them. Iron Man's presence in Captain America 3 would kick off a Civil War story arc to run simultaneously with the Infinity Gauntlet arc, a war on two fronts if you will.

Many lead stars of the big screen have taken mementos from the sets of various films they've worked on. It's a nice token to remember that specific time in your life. Sometimes they steal them, other times they pay for them, but sometimes the production company just decides to give them to the stars. However, we're betting that no one has a movie memento as cool as what Robert Downey Jr. received from the set of The Avengers, courtesy of Marvel. You might remember a certain "A" from the sign on the side of Stark Tower, mostly because it was the only letter leftover after the action in Manhattan. Well, Downey now owns that. Downey explained how he came into possession of the "A" from The Avengers to BBC Radio One (via THR): "On the last Avengers, there’s this scene where there’s this ‘A’ which is probably 30 feet tall, »

In the wake of Robert Downey Jr.‘s return to the McU, Warner Bros. finally unveiled its own ambitious master plan for the DC Movie Universe in a conference call with investors, which included films led by female characters, black characters and a self-described “queer” actor. TheWrap‘s film reporter Jeff Sneider was traveling in the midst of all the action so he didn't have a weigh in on all the excitement, but he's back and full of both questions and opinions. Sneider seems burned out on comic book movies but watch the video above to get his thoughts on all the latest. »
