The Scarlett Johansson-Morgan Freeman sci-fi thriller “Lucy” is proving super-human brainpower is a concept that translates globally — in a big way. Written and directed by Luc Besson, “Lucy” added $13 million this weekend to raise its foreign total to $253 million and more than $378 million worldwide. That's not bad for a movie with a $40 million production budget. Universal's share of the foreign total — Besson's EuropaCorp is handling it in several European markets and Hong Kong — is nearly $200 million.

This photo of Jeremy Renner wearing a Scarlett Johansson Black Widow mask is completely freaking me out! Renner posted the photo from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it's such a bizarre and strange visual that I won't get out of my head anytime soon. For those of you wondering why a mask like this even exists, it's for the stunt doubles who are filling in for the actress during shooting.

Magic in the Moonlight, 2014.
Written and Directed by Woody Allen.
A romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue.
Woody Allen has released a film every consecutive year since 1982 and has seldom missed a year since his first feature What’s Up, Tiger Lily? in 1966. His film releases are as much part of the ‘must see’ list of any given years as any directors, but the results can be mixed. For every Midnight in Paris you get a From Rome With Love and with the likes of Everyone Says I Love You comes The Curse of the Jade Scorpion. His latest offering Magic in the Moonlight is by no means Allen at his best, but I’ll take average woody »

We've spent months gorging on galaxy-traveling guardians, giant toy robots and angry lizards, ape-populated planets and a genetically enhanced Scarlett Johansson. Now that summer is basically over, we are expected to go from fluffy to heavy, and prepare ourselves for a season of prestige pics, biopics and soon-to-be Oscar picks. Yes, there are some popcorn movies coming out between now and December — a new Hunger Games entry, a long-awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel, the final chapter of Peter Jackson's Hobbit franchise — but for the most part, the fall is »
Luc Besson's Lucy exceeded Russian box-office expectations, bringing in one of the year's biggest opening-weekend performances in the country. The sci-fi/action thriller, released in Russia on Sept. 11, seven weeks after its U.S. release, grossed $9.6 million (363 million rubles) during its opening weekend, surpassing even the most optimistic forecasts. Besson and the film's star, Scarlett Johansson, are popular in Russia. Lucy was the top movie of the weekend and had the eighth-biggest opening weekend of the year in Russia. The opening-weekend figure put Lucy in the same league as the most successful recent

About six weeks ago, "Avengers" star Jeremy Renner joined social media. And he has been an absolute joy ever since. Never more so than when he shared this photo from the set of "Age of Ultron." During a slow moment, Renner donned the mask worn by Scarlett Johansson's stunt double… Wow. Such beauty. If you secretly — or not so secretly — ship "Clintasha" this might be the closest you'll ever get to beholding their daughter. But what the actual hell is happening? According to Beth, the mask was created to help special effects artists in post-production paint Johansson's facial expressions on top of her stunt double's body, since being pregnant threw off how much physical stunt work she could do. Of course, Renner has been goofing off on set for weeks. Case in point: whatever is going on here. Bless. [Via Jeremy Renner] »

Yesterday, Marvel Studios and Disney Pictures finally dropped a new press release, revealing the new, official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" super hero/action flick, and it sounds like things will get quite interesting and intense as Tony Starks aka Ironman runs into some major problems. All the Avengers team gets put to their most challenging test ever, and more! The official press release reads like this: "Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.

Have you ever wondered what Hawkeye and Black Widow.s baby would look like? Of course you have. Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are two preposterously good-looking people who sizzled with chemistry throughout Joss Whedon.s 2012 blockbuster, The Avengers. Well, here's your answer: Check out that ungodly image that Jeremy Renner recently uploaded to his Twitter account. When Renner unleashed the nauseating picture on his 81,000 followers, he did so alongside the caption: "Hawkeye and Widow? Widow and Hawkeye??? Hmmm. #iftheyhadababy #widow #hawkeye." There is just something unsettling and innately gross about seeing Renner as Clint Barton wearing what appears to be a mask of Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow face. However, if you.re able to take your eyes away from the truly terrifying, yet oddly hypnotic, coagulation of two beautiful Avengers, then you.ll also realize that it gives us a pretty good look at Hawkeye.s attire for »
Marvel and Disney have made available the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it doesn't give much away to someone like me that doesn't know anything about the comics, but I have to assume comic book readers can see between the lines. As much as I'm not all that interested in another film in which "the fate of the planet hangs in the balance", I have high hopes for this one. I think Joss Whedon is working with the best this "cinematic universe" has to offer, which is he gets to play with all the characters, which cleans up the issue of "Where is so-and-soc" right off the bat, though with the addition of so many new characters it will be interesting to see how he balances their screen time and how well we'll get to know them all.

Sequels for superhero movies are a dime a dozen in Hollywood of late. But perhaps the one follow-up on the current movie calendar that has the most expectation resting upon its broad and burly shoulders is Avengers: Age of Ultron. After all, its predecessor has stormed past $1.5 billion since release to become the third highest-grossing film of all time, and is adorned by Marvel fans worldwide. No pressure, then, Mr. Whedon.
With the anticipated sequel pegged for May of next year, only those who attended this year’s San Diego Comic-Con had the chance to see some early footage. For the rest of us, though, Marvel has released a plot synopsis that reveals just the right amount of information without delving into untimely spoilers.

Bits and pieces of info about "Avengers: Age of Ultron" have been flying around for two years, but now, they're finally coming together to form a more coherent picture.
Marvel released the official synopsis for the highly-anticipated sequel, which is set for release on May 1, 2015. We've known for awhile that the movie's big villain is James Spader's Ultron (duh) and that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson play Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
But there's also some interesting stuff to mull over, like Tony Stark's possible role in creating Ultron. Also, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are referred to by their actual names (maybe due to licensing issues with Fox, since those characters are part of the "X-Men" universe too).
Here's the synopsis. Let the mulling begin!
