Eisner Award Nominees

11 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Eisner Awards, the "Oscars of Comics" have announced their nominations for the current season (they follow more of a Tony Awards timetable) and the results are heavy on Image comics with Marvel scoring in the top "continuing series" category with the current run of Hawkeye. Maybe there's hope for Jeremy Renner's unloved movie hero after all?  Or maybe not. It's up against last year's winner Saga. 

I want to share two categories that have particular appeal to us here at Tfe. They have an adapted category (which sometimes pulls from movies) and a digital comics category and you know I keep trying to start one though admittedly I never fully commit.

Best Adaptation from Another Medium

The Castle, by Franz Kafka, adapted by David Zane Mairowitz and Jaromír 99 (SelfMadeHero) The Complete Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes, adapted by by Rob Davis (SelfMadeHero) Django Unchained, adapted by Quentin Tarantino, »

11 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jeremy Renner is set to narrate History’s three-night event series, “The World Wars.”

The series tells the story of three decades of war from the perspective of men like Franklin Roosevelt, Adolf Hitler, George Patton, Benito Mussolini, Winston Churchill, Hideki Tojo, Charles de Gaulle and Douglas MacArthur. It will also examine the two World Wars as one contiguous timeline, starting in 1914 and ending in 1945.

The World Wars” is produced by Stephen David Entertainment for History with David as executive producer, and Russ McCarroll, Paul Cabana and Elaine Frontain Bryant as as executive producers for History.

“The stories that came out of the World Wars are heroic, horrific and everything in between,” said Renner. “I’m happy to lend my voice to History and help tell these stories in a very different way.”

The series premieres at 9 p.m. on May 26.

Chadwick Boseman Rumored To Play Black Panther In Avengers: Age of Ultron

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

The latest bit of speculation to hit the internet regarding Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to us courtesy of Nerd Reactor, who thinks that 42 star Chadwick Boseman may be showing up as Black Panther in the film.

Black Panther is one of the most prominent minority superheroes and in the comic books, he is most often depicted as the ruler of the fictional African country, Wakanda. Nerd Reactor quotes a report from Devin Faraci of Badass Digest, who says that the plot of the new Avengers film will involve the titular villain Ultron building his armor out of the material vibranium (the same material that Captain America’s shield is made out of), which he gets from Wakanda. So presumably, that’s how Panther will tie in.

Frankly, it’s about time the Black Panther made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel movies, »

Elizabeth Olsen "Terrified" of Spilling Avengers: Age of Ultron Secrets, Slightly Intimidated by Cast

18 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Avengers is one of the most profitable films of all time, earning $1.5 billion since its April 2012 release. So when Elizabeth Olsen was cast as the Scarlet Witch in the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, she was understandably nervous about joining returning cast members Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. "With a situation like The Avengers where there's already an established franchise, you're the newbies. That's kind of intimidating," the actress tells Flaunt of joining the movie with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays her twin. "But I feel like I swing back and forth. I've been prepping this since January, at »

New Poster For ‘The Immigrant’ Starring Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix

15 April 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Immigrant made its debut at Cannes last year and has reunited director James Gray with Joaquin Phoenix for the fourth time, after they previously worked together on We Own The Night, Two Lovers and The Yards.

We already previously heard that Gray wrote this role specifically for Cotillard, who here plays Ewa Cybulski, a woman who sails to New York with her sister from their native Poland in search of a new start. However, when they reach Ellis Island, the doctors discover that Magda is ill, and they are separated.

Out on her own, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician  - restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

Massively Photoshopped Poster for 'The Immigrant'

15 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Set for release on May 16, The Weinstein Co. is finally getting started on some marketing for James Gray's The Immigrant, which premiered at last year's Cannes Film Festival and left me rather agitated. Here's a snippet from my review: The second half of the film only proves worse than the first. Dialogue is so obvious it hurts, "Hey Ewa... Would you like to go West with mec You could be my assistant." All said without an ounce of inflection or feeling, not that Gray's script is necessarily giving them Shakespeare to recite. I never got the impression the actors had much, if any, interest in the feature outside of Phoenix who ranges from very good to over-the-top mimicry. In the film's final moments you're likely to see several critics praising Phoenix's performance. If there was ever a bid for an Oscar nomination on screen this year, this is the scene. »

Review: FX's 'Fargo' reinvents the Coen brothers movie

15 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I don't watch movies," declares Lorne Malvo, the slippery, malevolent figure at the center of FX's new "Fargo" series. (The first of 10 episodes debuts tonight at 10; I've seen the first four.) The line rings true to what we have learned about Malvo, a professional hitman and amateur troublemaker who takes pleasure in encouraging people's worst impulses to see what will happen. But it also functions as a sly acknowledgment of the large shadow "Fargo" the movie casts over "Fargo" the TV show. Created by Noah Hawley (a "Bones" alum who created the charming but short-lived ABC cop show "The Unusuals," starring a then-unknown Jeremy Renner), the new "Fargo" takes place in the same frozen Minnesota winter of the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning film(*), though it is not a remake of that film's story. Still, there are many nods to the movie both big and small — each episode, for instance, opens with »

Paul Bettany Confirms Vision Role In ‘Avengers 2′

14 April 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Bettany has been with the Marvel cinematic universe since the very beginning, taking on the role of Tony Stark’s AI butler J.A.R.V.I.S. However, it seems as though vocal work just isn’t enough, and although rumours have persisted for months regarding Bettany’s promotion to physicality in the form of The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there was never any real official confirmation. Now Paul Bettany has gone on record commenting on his role during a live performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Transcendence:

It’s very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give ma huge bag of cash and then I’d go home. »

Paul Bettany Talks Vision in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, it was announced that the voice of Tony Stark's personal A.I. system J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers, Paul Bettany, would be taking on the role of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he talked a bit about the challenges of accepting the role. While he couldn't delve too deep into Vision's story or powers, he did hint that it is quite a change going from a voice actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to someone who is needed on set.

"Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me...It's very exciting for me, »

Paul Bettany on playing The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

We’ve known for a while now that Joss Whedon will expand the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron, bringing in Godzilla duo Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as mutant ‘miracle’ twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, while Paul Bettany is also set to add to his voice work as Jarvis by bringing life to The Vision. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the British actor has spoken a little about his new role in the eagerly-anticipated sequel…

Eight Predictions For The Marvel Cinematic Universe

13 April 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach with eight predictions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe…

Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.

The success is trying to be imitated by Warner Bros. with the DC cinematic universe and Fox who have ambitions of a shared universe between X-Men and Fantastic Four – the only Marvel properties they own. Marvel Studios has definitely got it right though where the others fail. It is a great time for Marvel Studios and there is no sign of this slowing down any time soon. »

New Avengers: Age of Ultron Set Photos Show Black Widow on Captain America's Motorcycle

11 April 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Joss Whedon has been shooting "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on the streets of Seoul, South Korea. We've already seen Captain America (Chris Evans), Quicksilver (Aaron Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and now we have a few shots of Black Widow. In the photos, the character is seen driving Captain America's motorcycle. Since Scarlett Johansson is pregnant and because Marvel doesn't want the actress to get hurt, the person doing the actual driving is Johansson's stunt-double. Check out the photos below. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is set to hit theaters on May 1st, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »

Is 'Iron Man 4' Part of Marvel Phase 4?

10 April 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Iron Man is one of the most popular movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with three adventures and over $1 billion in ticket sales, the future of Tony Stark is uncertain. We know we'll next see Robert Downey Jr. reprising the role he made famous in Avengers: Age of Ultron. And he has commited to The Avengers 3. But after that, Marvel hasn't offered any details. Now, a new survey sent out by Marvel Studios over the weekend during NYC screenings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier suggest we may be seeing Iron Man 4 sooner than later.

The sequel is certainly on the minds of those at Marvel. This portion of the survey asks fans which Marvel movie are they most interested in seeing next, and it includes Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Iron Man 4, Thor 3 and Captain America 3. Not included are Guardians of the Galaxy and suspected Phase Three movie Doctor Strange, »

Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #12: Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein Expose Deceptive Truths in 'An Honest Liar'

10 April 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Documentaries are prone to exposing surprising truths, which makes Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein's film "An Honest Liar" all the more complex given the nature of its subject: the art of deception. Measom and Weinstein chronicle the life of famed magician James "The Amazing" Randi and his attempt to expose the numerous frauds who use their tricks to con people out of money, which ultimately proves to be quite the trick itself. Tell us about yourself. Tyler Measom: I am but a humble chimney sweep and documentary filmmaker laboring to put bread on the table. "An Honest Liar" is my third feature to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The others: "Take" (2008) starring Minnie Driver and Jeremy Renner and the documentary "Sons of Perdition" (2010). I live and work under the shade of a large oak tree in the lovely town of Salt Lake City. And no, I'm not a Mormon. »

Black Widow Takes Cap's Motorcycle For A Spin In Latest Avengers: Aou Set Snaps

9 April 2014 7:38 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Some previous shots from Seoul saw Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in some precarious traffic-related situations, so from the above pics we can surmise that at some point he has to ditch his motorcycle, leaving Widow to commandeer it and come to his aid. Just an assumption of course, but it'd make sense given the snaps we've seen. Thanks to Unleash The Fanboy for the pics. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015. »
