Hayley Atwell Has Role In Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Plus Joss Whedon Talks About Movie’s “Darker, Weirder, Tougher World”

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though her Marvel character Peggy Carter, a love interest for Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in the WWII-set Captain America: The Winter Soldier, had of course aged into an old woman by the time Cap was thawed out of the ice and tasked with saving the world twice more in The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell isn’t done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. She’s toplining the ABC series Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will replace Marvel’s Agents of Shield at midseason, and it turns out that Atwell will be stopping in for a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well.

Funnily enough, Atwell has a night on the town with director Joss Whedon to thank for her Age of Ultron role:

“We went out drinking one night and he was like, ‘You know, it would be great to write something for you. »

Marvel Will End Each Phase with an 'Avengers' Sequel

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, I had the chance to sit down with Marvel Studios president and uber-producer Kevin Feige, the architect behind the enormously successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, to discuss Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters on August 1. While you can check back for the full interview next week, the producer shared new details about Marvel's release strategy, how close they are to casting Doctor Strange and how they plan on ending each Phase with an Avengers sequel.

Marvel's highly successful Phase One culminated with the release of Marvel's The Avengers, and Phase Two is no different, coming to a close next year with Avengers: Age of Ultron. With Phase Three just around the corner, Ant-Man (July 17, 2015), Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016) and Doctor Strange have been confirmed, with The Avengers 3 almost certain to close out the phase. I asked Kevin Feige if they still plan on ending each of their future phases with Avengers sequels, »

Nicholas Bell’s Top 10 Best of 2014 So Far…

10 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#10. The Grand Budapest Hotel

Without a doubt, Anderson’s darkest film to date, this also has to be the richest and most complex of his films. A starry supporting cast whirls around the delectable Ralph Fiennes, treading throughout the director’s glorious off beat style. By now, many perhaps take Anderson’s visual mastery for granted, or even dismiss him, yet his work has only become more thrillingly accomplished.

#9. Locke

A film completely set in a moving car with only the visage of Tom Hardy to interact with disembodied voices (one of which is Olivia Colman)? Abandon all fear of tediousness as you experience one of the most inventive and engaging experiments you’ll see this year. Hardy, if you’ve seen Bronson, obviously has no hard time sharing the screen with himself, and while it’s a more subdued performance here, this one’s not to miss.

#8. Burning Bush »

Toronto International Film Festival unveils first wave of films for 2014

13 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.

The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Whether or not this was the right move, Tiff has still managed to secure the films of Noah BaumbachDavid Cronenberg, Lone Scherfig, »

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay About Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer'

13 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The low key release of Snowpiercer is finding a pretty decent size audience after getting a release in limited theaters two weeks later, followed by a wide release and availability on nearly all VOD platforms last weekend. It's turned out to be a pretty big hit with Thompson on Hollywood learning from Harvey Weinstein, who battled with Bong Joon-ho over the final cut, that the film has pulled in $2 million in just one week from VOD releases. That's the kind of stuff that keeps changing the face of distribution. Now to explore the film and see what everyone is talking about, here's a video essay analyzing the film very well. Here's the 10-minute video essay on Snowpiercer from Press Play (via The Film Stage): The cast for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer includes Chris Evans with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, »

'Avengers 2' Creates an Existential Crisis for Its Heroes

21 July 2014 9:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production continues on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still don't have too many confirmed story details regarding this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk, recently teased that Joss Whedon is at the top of his game, and that the Avengers are dealing with a lot of widespread hatred towards them after S.H.I.E.L.D. came crumbling down.

"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They're really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There's a lot of negativity towards them."

The actor also teased that his character Bruce Banner is »

'Batman V Superman,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' And 'Fantastic Four' To Make Surprise Appearances At Comic-Con

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel and DC will go head-to-head at Comic-Con 2014, causing some to theorize that DC and Warner Bros. will unveil a possible Justice League cast lineup.

Batman V Superman Footage

DC’s Justice League movie will be their first shared superhero film, coming out of the recent Superman reboot in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and the upcoming sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Last year, Snyder announced the Batman V Superman sequel at the Warner Brothers Comic-Con panel, and fans are anxious to see whether or not Snyder will surprise Comic-Con with another revelation on the Man of Steel sequel.

Rumors, of course, are already running wild about what potential Warner Bros. and DC surprises could be in store for San Diego this week, with many citing footage of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, at the top of their list. »

Hayley Atwell Says Agent Carter Is Back in 'Avengers 2'

21 July 2014 6:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hayley Atwell is ready to reprise her Peggy Carter role in the new ABC series Marvel's Agent Carter, but that's not the only place fans will be able to see her. She is also making an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We last saw modern day Peggy in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when Steve Rogers visited his former flame in an old folks' home. For Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon wanted to write a scene specifically for the character.

Hayley Atwell explains,

"We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you,' And I was like , 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"

It was not confirmed if she will be appearing in flashbacks that will tie into Marvel's Agent Carter, which debuts on ABC this winter, or if Steve will be making »

Will Joss Whedon Direct 'Avengers 3'?

21 July 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Badass Digest, who broke the supposed big Star Wars: Episode VII plot scoop yesterday, claims to have sources deep inside Disney, and this time they are reporting that Joss Whedon will most likely not return to direct The Avengers 3. They go onto claim that James Gunn is being groomed by Marvel to take over the franchise. Which makes sense if we're to believe that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will show up in this impending Marvel sequel.

Badass Digest points out that James Gunn is signed to do a second Marvel movie, though the title hasn't been revealed. They also point out that most Marvel directors never make it to two movies, Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon being the exception, and Jon Favreau will never return to this Cinematic Universe as a director, at least for the time being (of course that could change). It sounds like Joss Whedon »

Exclusive: Harvey Weinstein Explains How 'Snowpiercer' Became a Gamechanger, We Crunch Theater vs. VOD Numbers

21 July 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Thirty years in, Harvey Weinstein knows the distribution business. While he's a wily theatrical animal who knows when to spend big on a wide release and when to dump a movie, he took a radical route with Bong Joon-ho's action adventure "Snowpiercer," starring Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton, seizing the chance to try something new. Weinstein's decision to open an action picture with major movie stars via autonomous subsidiary RADiUS with a video-on-demand release two weeks after its theatrical opening is rippling through the film community. As the Hollywood studios struggle with a depressed summer box office, losing the fickle young male demo and locked into a standoff with theater chains on release windows, they're watching the independents experiment with video-on-demand release models. "Snowpiercer" marks a tipping point in the movie industry's shift from analog to digital. Why? It marks the most commercial movie to ever open in theaters and quickly go to. »
