James Spader talks about playing Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As you’re no doubt aware, the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked ahead of its planned reveal during next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with Marvel Studios subsequently releasing the trailer officially. In the trailer we got our first look at the villain Ultron in action, along with his chilling voice, and now actor James Spader has spoken to Total Film about the character.

“There’s a humerous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon],” Spader revealed. “In many ways he’s a child, this character, because he’s a brand new being who’s just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he’s a very powerful, smart child.”

Spader was asked about comparing the character of Ultron to Raymond Reddington whom Spader portrays »

Ultron's Look Revealed in 'Avengers 2' Art

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after Marvel released the first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, following an online leak, the first promo art featuring a full look at the villainous Ultron (James Spader) has surfaced.

The image comes from Twitter user Galliettd, who found the art at Vk.com, although it hasn't been confirmed if this is official artwork or not. While it's certainly possible that this image isn't the real deal, Cbm notes that it is likely authentic, since it would be difficult to create such a high quality image between the time the trailer debuted last night, which gave us our first look at Ultron, and now.

The official synopsis released last month revealed that Ultron is "hell-bent on human extinction," a point which is made abundantly clear in yesterday's footage. Stay tuned for more details regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron as we get closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. »

1,000 Times Good Night Review

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

At the end of The Hurt Locker, the loose cannon sergeant William James, played by Jeremy Renner, returns home from the high-stakes tension of diffusing bombs in Iraq. He spends some time with his family but is unengaged in his responsibilities as a husband and father. There, he is a stranger in a strange land, yearning to return to a place more like home to him – the unit in the Middle East where he just spent a year risking his life.

The new photojournalist drama 1,000 Times Good Night is kind of a feature-length version of the last five minutes of The Hurt Locker, exploring the tug of a renowned war photographer to return to war, after an injury subsides her from her job and she has to spend time with her family. That shutterbug’s name is Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) and she has a purpose: to get right into the »

Movie Review: Kill the Messenger

11 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The history of America’s “War on Drugs” has produced many stories. One of the lesser-known ones is that of the late Gary Webb, an investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News who wrote a series of articles about the CIA’s involvement in cocaine trafficking into the United States. The film Kill the Messenger tries to tell the story of Webb and the backlash he faced because of his writing. Unfortunately, despite some good performances, the film falls short of its lofty ambitions.

Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner), a journalist for the San Jose Mercury News, thinks he’s found the story of a lifetime when he discovers information that seems to expose the CIA’s role in arming the Contra rebels in Nicaragua and supporting their trafficking of cocaine into the United States. But after Webb’s expose is published, he becomes the target of a vicious smear »

James Spader Says Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Titular Villain Is a “Powerful, Smart Child” and “Batshit Crazy”

11 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday, fans finally got a look at Avengers: Age of Ultron (click here for screengrabs from the trailer), which was dominated by James Spader voicing the eponymous, evil robot.  The highly-anticipated sequel looks much darker than the first, and obviously a large part of that comes from an intimidating villain.  If audiences are going to buy Ultron as a true threat—and, let's face it, someone as charismatic as Loki—then it's going to come from Spader. Thankfully, the actor has a strong understanding of how he sees the character, and how he'll bring the Avengers' foe to life.  Hit the jump for what Spader had to say.  The film also stars Robert Downey Jr.Chris EvansChris HemsworthMark RuffaloScarlett JohanssonJeremy RennerElizabeth OlsenPaul Bettany, and Aaron Taylor-JohnsonAvengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015. Speaking to Total Film, Spader explained what drew him to the character »

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in 'Avengers'

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Edward Norton signed on to play Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk, Marvel's second Phase One adventure, many fans assumed that he would return for The Avengers, which was teased at the end of Iron Man. Edward Norton eventually turned down the chance to reprise his role as the Green Machine, paving the way for Mark Ruffalo to step in. While discussing his new indie hit Birdman, which is currently playing in limited release, Edward Norton explained why he decided to step away from Hulk in a new interview with NPR.

"My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that. There were just a lot of things-i wanted more diversity. »

'Avengers 2': James Spader Calls Ultron a Crazy Psychopath

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After an early leak of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer last night, Marvel responded by releasing the official version a few hours later, a full six days before it was supposed to debut during ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fans got their first look at the villainous Ultron (voiced by James Spader), whose "No strings" line quickly became the talk of the Internet.

James Spader recently spoke about voicing the iconic villain with Total Film, where he revealed that there is a humorous aspect to the character, although we don't see much of his funny side in the trailer.

"There's a humorous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon]. In many ways he's a child, this character, because he's a brand new being who's just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, »

War is hell! 9 brutal war movies to watch before Fury

23 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The long and illustrious line of films about war extends this week with the release of Brad Pitt's Fury, a drama about the crew of a WWII Sherman tank fighting for their lives behind enemy lines.

David Ayer's film is brutal and bloody, highlighting the sheer trauma of warfare. In time for Fury's release, Digital Spy takes a look at 9 different war films that will leave you shaken.

1. Paths of Glory (1957)

Stanley Kubrick famously moved between directing in different genres, but war was something he returned to on multiple occasions. His 1957 offering heads to the trenches of Wwi as mutiny takes hold. The futility of war is clear for all to see here, and the film ends with a moving rendition of German folk song 'The Faithful Hussar' by Kubrick's future wife Christiane.

2. The Deer Hunter (1978)

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Teaser Trailer Released Early

22 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel released the first official Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer after it was leaked online one week before it was set to premiere.

Avengers: Age of Ultron First Teaser Trailer

Marvel announced on Tuesday that they would premiere the Age of Ultron trailer during next week’s new episode of Agents of Shield, but was forced to move up their timetable when the trailer was leaked Wednesday evening. Though Marvel lawyers were quick to get the trailer offline, they then decided to go ahead and upload it ahead of schedule. The official teaser uploaded to Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube channel is no different from the one that was leaked, though it is better quality. Most importantly, the teaser finally shows fans James Spader as Ultron, the film’s villain.

The trailer certainly sets a darker tone to the Avengers franchise, with images of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) looking sad, Black Widow »

Avengers: Age of Ultron gets its first trailer

Well, that got dark.

“I’ve Got No Strings” from Pinocchio has never sounded more terrifying than in the background of the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ulton -- and Pinocchio is a pretty scary movie, to be quite honest.

The trailer for the film was leaked, and Marvel had the best reaction:

 

Dammit, Hydra.

Marvel Entertainment (@Marvel) October 22, 2014

 

James Spader is Ultron, replacing Tom Hiddleston’s Loki as the main antagonist in the next Marvel installment. We don’t know what Ultron’s motives are yet, but we’re sure his methods are effective. Just look at Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) curled up on the floor of the Helicarrier. These guys are scared.
