"Frankie and Alice," directed by Geoffrey Sax and starring Halle Berry in the titular characters, is based on true events in the life of Francine “Frankie” Murdoch, a black woman who was severely hindered by multiple personality disorder. The film takes place in the early 70’s, when Frankie (Berry) is finally diagnosed with, and begins treatment for Dissociative Identity Disorder, under the care of Dr. Oswald (Stellan Skarsgard), soon after our protagonist is found half-dressed and passed out in the middle of traffic. The opening scene finds Frankie working as an exotic dancer. After a caged stage dancing segment - an oddly orchestrated sequence - is over, she’s in the »

IMAX will be giving away a free poster at early screenings of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the question is, which poster will early ticket buyers be receivingc For the new Avengers movie they are leaving that decision up to Twitter as the four you see below are in the running and the winning poster, based on hashtag retweets, will be handed out. You have a choice between a couple of minimalistic posters, a floating head poster and my personal favorite, the infected grey scale logo version with elements from the film worked into the image. If I didn't vote for that one I guess I'd go with the black-and-white, Punisher-style minimal poster, but who are we kiddingc I'm not voting in this, but if you are click here and get in on the action.

[Last Updated March 29, 2015] There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is the superhero movie. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero films in droves. With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture. Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered. Below, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all the way up to the year 2020. Moreover, »

Directed by Kenneth Branagh.
When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.
Re-boot, Re-imagining, Re-telling, Re-make, Re-hash, regurgitation… There are a lot of “Re’s” in Hollywood lately, some of them work… (Dredd, Evil Dead, True Grit) and some of them don’t… (Spider-Man, Total Recall, any recent Tim Burton films). Unfortunately the latest uh… re-telling, I guess… Cinderella falls into the latter, but its not all bad…
We all know the story so I’m not going to bore you with the glass slipper routine, it’s just a shame that the makers of this »

We’ve seen glimpses of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in action in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailers, but Marvel UK just unveiled a brand new featurette called “Super Siblings” that gives us a far more in-depth look at the characters, especially Scarlet Witch. As someone who isn’t too familiar with the source material, I never really knew how powerful she was, but based on what we see in this promo video, she’s going to have an especially devastating effect on the Avengers. Check out the Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette below. The film opens in 3D on May 1st and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba and Don Cheadle. Via Marvel UK. Here’s the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron »

On the surface of it, Disney's decision to frontload their updated live-action Cinderella with a brand new Frozen short looks like a bad move. A large part of Frozen's appeal with critics (if not with kids) was its subversive treatment of familiar storybook tropes like "true love's kiss", where Princess Elsa's relationship with her estranged sister became the central focus and romance was an afterthought. Surely attaching Frozen Fever could only emphasise how creaky and regressive the Cinderella story now looks.
But of course, Cinderella has endured for a reason. Director Kenneth Branagh has a steady handle on both the wonder and the humanity of the story, which was originally set to be adapted by Never Let Me Go's Mark Romanek. Though an intriguing prospect, Romanek's »
Cinderella hits UK this Friday. A traditional take on the classic fairy tale, Kenneth Branagh directs Downton Abbey‘s Lily James as the titular heroine. The film is a true live adaptation of Disney‘s iconic cartoon and features a plethora of fine actors and actresses, most of them British. Kenneth Branagh’s name on the directors chair obviously helped get a few to sign the dotted line; the film stars Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Derek Jacobi and Stellan Skarsgard to name but a few.
Ahead of Cinderella’s cinematic release (which feature new Frozen short film Frozen Fever) we were invited to the luxurious Claridges to attend a very special press conference. We felt just like Cinderella as we walked through the historic building. There were many questions that people were dying to ask, but we had but one – had Prince Kit not learned anything from Rob Stark’s marital choices? »

Another bout of social media scoopery arrives this morning as the official Avengers: Age Of Ultron Twitter account has debuted a brand new TV spot for the forthcoming superhero sequel. In most cases, TV spots are merely re-edited trailers. Condensed into commercial-sized teasers, their sole purpose is for consumption between shows. However, in this minute-long video there’s practically no recycled footage.
Without wanting to give anything away – which is hard! – the clip feels unlike any other trailer released thus far. Where the one point of contention has been on the downbeat tone of earlier previews, this clip is peppy, excited and all about how much fun the cast appear to be having. Plus, we finally get a chance to hear one of the newest additions speak! Check it out for yourself above, and be sure to let us know your thoughts.

The Avengers will face a serious threat in new enemy Ultron, but the latest TV spot for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is definitely on the lighter side. When called "boss" by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) jokes that Captain America (Chris Evans) is the real boss. "I just pay for everything and design everything, make everyone look cooler..."
The 1-minute spot shows most of the characters in action - including Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson), and even a quip from Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). James Spader voices Ultron (who notes that "it's time for some fun"), and the big sequel cast also features Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. Jackson.
"Age of Ultron" will be released May 1. Are you ready to have some fun? »

This morning, Marvel dropped a special new baddie-centric poster for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which features Ultron, the evil mechanical tyrant, standing in what appears to be an industrial workshop.
Posing with his back to us, this type of stance has often been employed when showcasing the exemplary derriere of Scarlet Johansson’s Black Widow. So, it’s a pleasant change for synthetic individuals to now be subjected to the obligatory “butt shot” as well.
All jokes aside, the image offers a close-up look at the movie’s main baddie in a drab, gun-metal grey environment. In comparison to all the other Avengers character posters to have arrived in the last month, Ultron’s is the only one captured in a different location. Whether that means anything significant or not though remains to be seen.
Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in the UK on April 23, and in Us theaters on »

Marvel’s dedicated marketing strategy for its upcoming superhero sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron has been ambitious to say the least. As well as the expected trailers, clips, Superbowl spots and stills, a string of solo Avenger character posters have flooded the web. Up to now, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Thor, Hawkeye and Captain America have all graced their very own one-sheets.
With those franchise main players established, the focus has shifted to newbies Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). When they’re not behaving all superhero-esque, the sibling duo go by the names Wanda and Pietro Maximoff – but don’t let that fool you. Armed with an arsenal of powers, the pair are primed to do battle against anyone who stands in their way. If the last full-length trailer is anything to go on – that’s probably going to be all of the Avengers. »
