Chris Hemsworth: In Age Of Ultron, we see a more grounded, earthly version of Thor than we have in the past. It is nice because there are a few more opportunities to showcase some humor and see him in some casual gear »

Happy first anniversary to Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac! The 30-year-old bombshell actress and Avengers star and her French husband married in a super-private wedding ceremony at a ranch in Montana on Oct. 1, 2014. The two, parents of a baby girl, were introduced by their friend and tattoo artist, Fuzi Uvtpk, and started dating in late 2012. They got engaged less than a year later. Johansson revealed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last month that while she has been learning French, she prefers to speak English because it helps her win arguments with her husband. "When you're in a relationship with somebody you want to speak »
“I think Spider-Man can serve great purpose in our universe and that’s where he belongs,” said Feige. “That was what was unique about him in the comics was not that he was the only superhero in the world; it’s that he was a totally different kind of superhero when compared against all the other ones in the Marvel universe at the time.”
Sony will partner up with Marvel to bring the studio’s flagship superhero, portrayed by Tom Holland, to the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” next year. This Spidey appearance will introduce Holland to audiences before his standalone debut as the web-slinger in July, 2017.
Since the Marvel-Sony deal became official in February, Feige said that »

With its rather large roster of characters, many worry that Captain America: Civil War will make the titular character a secondary player in his own movie. Despite making claims about this not being the case already, Kevin Feige has reiterated that Captain America: Civil War is a Captain America movie.
“It is very much Cap’s story,” Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “It’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier. As that conflict builds, it is represented as a conflict between Cap and Tony.”
“There’s a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, but it still felt like a very singular and relatively simple thrill ride,” he adds. “Cap, in Civil War, follows very much that same way. That something that we pride ourselves on. Our screenwriters — Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely — are excellent at giving each character just enough. »

Tom Hanks stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday and ended up getting deep . . . real deep. After Stephen admitted that he sometimes likes to mull over life's biggest questions, he called on the actor to take part in a segment called Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars. The two then lay on a picnic blanket in the grass, took in the "scenery," and dove right into some of the biggest mysteries that plague us all. "What would you do with a time machine?" Stephen asked. Tom hilariously responded, "What would anyone do with a time machine? Go back in time and hold myself as a baby." Watch the hilarious clip above, and then check out Stephen reflecting on life with Scarlett Johansson. »

It’s almost October, dear readers, and that means prestige movie season is just around the corner. But it also means that we’re going to be getting trailers for more of next year’s big movies. And this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ is just that, with our first look at Disney’s The Jungle Book.
Premise: The orphan boy Mowgli (Neel Sethi) grows up in the Indian jungle with the help of a pack of wolves, the bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray), and the black panther Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley).
My take: The Jungle Book (1967) holds a special place in the Disney animated canon, being the final animated film to be in production while Walt Disney was alive, and the first to be released following his death. And in the last five years, Disney has found quite a bit of success with live-action remakes of its animated classics. »

Long before Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters, there were rumors that the Marvel Phase Two sequel would introduce Captain Marvel, although the character had not been cast yet. Just a few weeks before the release, producer Kevin Feige confirmed that Captain Marvel was in fact in an earlier version of the script, but they felt the time wasn't right to introduce her yet. If the studio had gone forward with introducing Carol Danvers, she would have appeared at the very end, in a scene where fans first meet the new Avengers, but executive producer Jeremy Latcham offered some more context as to why that didn't happen, during a Q&A session attended by Collider. He explains what the original ending should have been.
"In really early development there was a notion of there'd be a ton of new people. And then it was like, 'Well we haven't really introduced them, »
In naming Under the Skin the second-best film of the decade thus far, we said, “Scarlett Johansson has never been better than in Jonathan Glazer‘s visual monster of a film, playing an alien huntress praying on Scottish locals. Deliberately paced and pointedly told, Under The Skin feels like exactly the film Glazer set out to make; a singular vision with a delicate touch filtered through a sci-fi genre narrative. Brilliant from start to finish.”
It looks like we’re not alone in our affection for the film as writer-director Rian Johnson, who has talked with both Christopher Nolan and Terry Gilliam about his love for science-fiction, came to BFI to introduce the film, and now it’s available online. The director of Looper and perhaps a little Star Wars film you’ve heard about talks about being “knocked out” by the film and compares it to few other experiences. »

Rian Johnson sits down with Damon Wise at a recent British Film Institute screening to share his admiration of Jonathan Glazer's "Under the Skin," the Scarlett Johansson-starring, succubus-among-us art film that took us all by storm last year. Johnson talks about the visuals, editing, score and Johansson's performance as an alien who's having an unsettlingly human experience on Earth. "It's an all-timer, one of a few modern movies in the pantheon for me." Read More: Rian Johnson to Write and Direct Next "Star Wars" Films »

"Avengers? Assemble." Ok, so the quote got cut off as Joss Whedon brought his Avengers: Age of Ultron to a close, but the sentiment was there. Captain America (Chris Evans) looked out over his new team, which included Vision (Paul Bettany), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). But that now-famous scene was supposed to have a Lot more Marvel faces in it, and we.re finally finding out why the studio pulled back at the last minute. We have reported in the past that Captain Marvel and Quicksilver were options for the revamped roster at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. During a recent Blu-ray event held on behalf of Age of Ultron, though, Marvel Studios exec Jeremy Latcham said (via Collider) that the plan was always supposed to be bigger. then explained why it wasn.t. He said: »

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).

Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...
Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.
Here are 25 examples.
Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »
Scarlett Johansson stepped out with her husband, Romain Dauriac, on Monday afternoon. The couple kept things casual in workout clothes and linked arms, while strolling around the streets of New York City. Earlier this month, Scarlett walked the red carpet at the NYC premiere of He Named Me Malala and got deep during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. But we haven't seen much of Scarlett and Romain together since she showed off her postbaby body back in October, which was coincidentally, the same month that the duo secretly tied the knot. Read on to see more photos from the pair's day out, then check out Scarlett's amazing evolution. »

Disney recently debuted a brand new Russian teaser trailer for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, which was initially teased for the first time a few weeks ago. This new adventure features a real human Mowgli, played by Neel Sethi, but all of the animals are created in the computer, though they look very lifelike. Additional well-known actors voice the various animals, including Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken and Scarlett Johansson. There's a few impressive shots of additional footage in this trailer, otherwise we're going to have to keep waiting as they finish rendering more of the CGI leading up to its release next spring. Enjoy!

The cast of The Avengers: Age of Ultron might be a composed of a bunch of superheroes, but that can't save them from busting up in laughter when someone makes a mistake—as proven by the film's newest gag reel. Marvel just released the hilarious, minute-long snippet of the blooper video, and not only do we see some bathroom humor, a few F-bombs, a tumble and some good old fashioned fun on set, but it also happens to include one sexy scene…between Chris Hemsworth and Paul Bettany! Yes, at about 30 seconds into the teaser, Thor and Vision go at it—not violently, but rather in a passionate, sexy make out session. Scarlett Johansson appropriately follows the scene yelling, "What the »
From the very first images to the debut teaser, Jon Favreau’s live-action update of The Jungle Book appears destined to blow audiences away. Stunning CGI components blend together seamlessly with the shenanigans of young actor Neel Sethi. And that’s before any of the film’s starry vocal cast enter the picture. So if those early promo tidbits left you gasping for more, fear not, as this new international trailer offers plenty of fresh footage.
Mowgli’s jungle jaunt is a familiar tale for most moviegoers, as it’s based on the original Disney outing which was itself an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s stories. Taking that into account, there’s bound to be inevitable familiarities between the two movies. And yet Favreau and his crew seem steadfast in their plans to rejuvenate the source material for new audiences. You might know where it’s headed, but if these previews persist, »
