Illustrator Andy Park has given us a peek at some of his early concept designs for the titular villain in Marvel’s blockbuster sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, posting the following images to his Facebook page…
“These are some initial passes done for the big baddie, Ultron. What a crazy fun project to work on,” states Park. “I don’t get to do the more robotic designs that often here given our resident robot experts in Ryan Meinerding, Phil Saunders, along with Josh Nizzi and Josh Herman. But when I do get a chance I just savor the moment. Too much fun!”
Avengers: Age of Ultron is out now and sees Joss Whedon directing a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill »

Already shaping up to be one of this year's most exciting thrillers, Sicario promises to deliver a combination of cinematic excitement and thoughtful insight into the drug issue when it slams into theaters in limited release on September 18, and then wide on September 25. The film exploded out of the Cannes Film Festival in May. Emily Blunt stars as an FBI agent who is assigned by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to go to Mexico to help bust a powerful drug cartel. She joins a team led by Benicio Del Toro, whose mysterious past clouds the situation as the investigation proves to be far more complicated and dangerous than anticipated. Denis Villenueve directed; he's built up a tremendous head of steam recently with the acclaimed thrillers Prisoners...

La Muerte! I'm really loving the marketing for this movie. The latest artwork to debut for the upcoming thriller Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Emily Blunt, was designed in the style of loteria cards from Mexico (a game like bingo but with symbols on cards). The film takes place mostly around Mexico, examining the relationship between Us government agents and drug cartels in Mexico. There are two excellent themed posters, then three more for some of the main cast: Emily Blunt es La Soldado ("the Soldier"), Benicio Del Toro es La Muerte ("Death") and Josh Brolin es El Araña ("the Spider"). I really like how striking and unique the marketing is, and the film looks great (trailer). Can't wait to see it myself. Here's the new set of loteria card posters for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, originally debuted by Movies.com: Click above for full-size. In addition to these posters, »

Earlier this month, writer-director James Gunn revealed that he has finished the script for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which was so good it apparently brought star Chris Pratt to tears after reading it. We know the main characters will all be back, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer Zoe Saldana's Gamora, Vin Diesel's Groot and Bradley Cooper's Rocket Raccoon. While we wait for other characters to be confirmed for the sequel, IGN recently spoke to Benicio Del Toro, who played The Collector in last year's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, who said he would love to reprise that role, but he hasn't heard anything official yet.
"I would like to keep working on that character, though. It was kind of like a cameo. I would like to keep developing the character based on what's written in the comic books. I'd like to see some different sides. »
We're confident in saying that Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War will be pitting Earth's mightiest heroes against Thanos the Mad Titan, but some casting calls suggest that a secondary villain may be showing up as well. Before we get to just who that might be, let's play a little catch-up to see where we are now. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor is in search of the Infinity Stones/Gems, some of which have already been accounted for, and all of which can be placed in an incredibly powerful device known as the Infinity Gauntlet. The film's mid-credits stinger shows Josh Brolin's Thanos griping about his incompetent minions and their inability to get the job done, so he grasps the golden gauntlet and affirms to do it himself. So unless Marvel wants to push Thanos further down the road, he should finally make his debut (for more than a few seconds, »

Marvel is definitely playing the long game with Benicio del Toro’s powerful and eccentric Collector. The ancient supervillain, also known as Tanleer Tivan, appeared first in the post-credits sequence of Thor: The Dark World, being entrusted with the Aether (one of six Infinity Stones), then showed up again in Guardians of the Galaxy, when he attempts to gain possess of another Infinity Stone contained in the mysterious Orb, only to have his entire workshop disintegrated by an opportunistic slave. Now, del Toro is saying that it’s really anyone’s guess when the Collector might show up again.
Speaking with IGN on the eve of Escobar: Paradise Lost hitting screens, del Toro said that he has no idea whether director James Gunn is incorporating his character into Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He commented:
“I would like to keep working on that character, though. It was kind of like a cameo. »

After receiving rave reviews out of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the latest trailer, as well as a new poster and three new images for Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated cartel thriller, Sicario.
When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black-ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000) along with special agent Matt Graver (Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin, Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008).
Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. »

Coming off of great buzz at Cannes, Denis Villeneuve's Sicario arrives on U.S. shores September 18. Today the trailer dropped and it's a doozy.Starring Emily Blunt as an FBI agent who gets thrust into the Mexican Cartel drug war, the Prisoners helmer's latest effort looks to be a morally complex, audacious action-thriller made for adults. Our own Jason Gorber reviewed the film at Cannes and had this to say: "Villeneuve's film feels at times deeply operatic, but it never loses itself into reverie. Blunt in particular is extremely effective, coming across as authentically powerful and vulnerable in equal measure."With some stunning work from cinematographer Robert Deakins the trailer does indeed hint at Jason's take. Sicario also stars Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro. Take a...
