In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we've seen Bruce Banner (both the Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo versions) suffer the embarrassment that comes with unintentional public nudity multiple times. This is because whatever clothes he happens to be wearing tend to shred like paper whenever he transforms into the Hulk. This is definitely a problem that's been going on for far too long, but it's one that is finally given a solution in Joss Whedon's upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron. ComicBook.com has gotten its hands on a Disney-published list of 13 facts about the next Marvel Studios blockbuster, and included amongst trivia about new characters and the sweet new Avengers Tower is an interesting tidbit about the way that the film will be finally addressing Hulk's tendency to rip his pants and leave Bruce Banner stranded without clothing. Allowing him to avoid this is the fact that he's now »
Considering that millions of people around the world play poker, and the number of colorful characters that are part of the game, it is surprising that poker has not been a more common plot for movies.
There are several reasons that the number of what writer Jason Kirk calls “pure poker movies” is very small.
The language of poker – More than any other sport, the language of poker is very unique. Terms like “gutshot”, “outs”, “runner, runner”, “felted”, “table stakes” and “going south” are not intuitive. In order for poker players to take the movie seriously, the terminology must be correct; in order for the general movie going public to follow, the movie the language must be explained. The result is either a slow moving script or an unrealistic one.
Poker is a slow moving game – Poker, and tournament poker in particular, has been described as hours of boredom punctuated »

Hollywood is not exactly a warm and fuzzy place where everyone gets along like best friends. That’s why so many film sets are hotbeds for drama. But no drama is more intense than the art-infused feuds between actor and director, because Art!
Here are some of the biggest and best actor-director fights in film history.
Let’s start with the most recent. After Mo’Nique won an Oscar for her role in Precious, she says Daniels told her she was blackballed for not playing the Hollywood game. Then recently she announced that she’d been offered roles in both The Butler and Empire, but never heard anything more until she learned Oprah and Taraji P. Henson were respectively playing what she’d been led to believe were her roles. Despite the struggles, Mo’Nique says she “could work with Lee Daniels tomorrow.”

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I introduce the teams over the Pa system... In its bumpy early days, "Agents of Shield" was a superhero show that seemed unwilling and/or unable to admit that it was a superhero show. The stars of the movies were absent (aside from that goofy cameo where Nick Fury showed up to yell at Coulson about a repair bill), and though the team dealt with alien artifacts and people with powers, it always felt like the show was trying to hold all that stuff at arm's length, as if even the popularity of the Marvel films had somehow not made this stuff mainstream enough. That was a long time ago, though, and "One of Us" was a fun damn episode of a show that takes place in a superhero universe and is no longer the least bit ashamed to admit it, »

Ryan Kavanaugh, the founder of Relativity Media, and model Jessica Roffey were married Friday in a private ceremony near Malibu, his rep confirms to People.

Filmmaker Patrick Willems has released a short video of The Uncanny X-Men shot in director Wes Anderson’s unique style. All the Andersonian visual aspects are there – the symmetrical cinematography, the simplistic, yellow font – along with his favourite character archetypes ‘manipulative father figure’ (Professor X) and ‘confused fish-out-of-water’ (Bobby Drake). Watch the video below, and then try to not want Edward Norton playing Cyclops.
The next time we’ll see the actual X-Men is in X-Men: Apocalypse, set for release on May 19th, 2016. It stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Nightcrawler. »

Up-and-coming performers, take note! T. Schreiber Studio’s One Year Conservatory places stage and screen actors in the heart of New York City’s Off-Off-Broadway scene under the guidance of some of the industry’s most seasoned professionals. Running from mid-September 2015 to mid-May 2016, the renowned studio immerses students in the kind of technical and practical training that leads to fully rounded artists—such as alumni Edward Norton, Maria Bello, and Peter Sarsgaard—who are ready to take the industry by storm. “The One Year Conservatory has changed my life professionally and personally,” said one former program participant. “After studying at previous acting programs in the city I know and feel that there is no program quite like it. I have never worked with such incredibly passionate, challenging and encouraging teachers in a supportive and safe environment. The changes and progress that have happened collectively and individually since beginning the program are just extraordinary. »
The American dream gets a dark tweak when author Chuck Palahniuk strangles it into graphic novel format with artist David Mack, who created the “American Gothic”-inspired cover of the second issue of “Fight Club 2.” While the iconic 1930 painting by artist Grant Wood hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago collection, the second issue of the graphic novel is coming in June to a comic book store near you.

If, by some chance, you’ve never seen any of the Marvel superhero movies, then here’s your chance. Marvel, in association with AMC and Regal Theaters, will be re-airing the eleven films in cinemas preceding the release of the franchise’s latest film, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The catch? They’re playing them one after another for over 29 hours of footage, not counting additional time they may take to give people bathroom breaks, concession runs, and maybe an occasional nap. The films, which include the three Iron Man films, both Thor flicks, two Captain Americas, both the old and the new Avengers films, Guardians of the Galaxy, and 2008’s The Incredible Hulk with Edward Norton as everyone’s favourite mad scientist.
So far there aren’t many locations offering this day long special. According to The Dissolve, AMC theaters will be showing the marathon in Kansas City, New York, »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.
Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.
Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.
Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

Fans don’t want to see it. Studios try to avoid it. But sometimes a recast in the midst of a movie franchise is inevitable.
Whether it be a scheduling conflict, salary negotiations gone wrong, or even an unexpected death – we’re taking a look at six times a movie recast was too obvious to ignore.
1. James “Rhodey” Rhodes – The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Terrence Howard played James “Rhodey” Rhodes in 2008’s Iron Man. But a salary conflict stopped Terrence from returning for the sequel. Re-casting Don Cheadle as Rhodey for Iron Man 2 was a bit obvious, so Marvel made a light of it in the 2010 sequel. Cheadle’s first line: “Look, it’s me. I'm here. Deal with it. Let's move on.”
2. The Incredible Hulk – The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Are you still rubbed the wrong way by the winners of this year’s Oscars? Wish that if they have 10 nominations, they should realistically use them to nominate cool movies everyone has seen like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars, and if you’re not going to, why not just go back to 5?
That’s what the MTV Movie Awards are for, and surprisingly, they’ve made some choices that are making them look even more diverse and in touch with society than the Academy.
The movie of the year nominations are a healthy mix of blockbusters and critical darlings, with Oscar winner Birdman nowhere to be found (except for Best Female Performance by Emma Stone and Best Fight, between Michael Keaton and Edward Norton).

Nominations are in for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and leading the way overall was "The Fault in Our Stars," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Neighbors" with seven mentions each. Little surprise, that, given the demographic, but at the same time, it's a relatively inspired (as far as it goes) mish-mash of consumer and prestige work across the board. "American Sniper," "Boyhood," "Selma" and "Whiplash" doubled up on their Best Picture fortunes from the Academy by landing in the Movie of the Year category. There they are joined by "Fault," "Gone Girl" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." Other Oscar nominees who found room include Bradley Cooper, Rosamund Pike (three nominations), J.K. Simmons, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon. "Whiplash," in particular, had a heartening showing. Miles Teller landed in the Best Male Performance category, and also picked up Best Wtf Moment and Best Musical Moment nods. And though it's no »

Only a couple hours after I ask if anyone expected films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Transformers: Age of Extinction or Maleficent to receive Oscar nominations for Best Picture do we receive the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations wherein two of those films actually do get nominations along with the likes of Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars as the two other "Movie of the Year" nominees that didn't make the Academy's cut. Oscar Best Picture winner Birdman was not nominated for Movie of the Year, but Emma Stone did receive a nomination as did Edward Norton and Michael Keaton for Best Fight. When it comes to overall tallies, it's Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars leading all nominees with seven each. The »
