Mondo has unveiled a rather nice poster for last year’s Marvel blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. Illustrated by Tyler Stout, poster is available now over on Mondo’s official site and comes in three versions: regular, priced at $65, a variant priced at $110, and a ‘Vibranium’ metal poster priced at $350; take a look here…
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. »

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 26th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself.
There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.
That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »
In this weekly feature from Murtada we follow Oscar contender appearances and interviews
The Oscars are just 9 days away so this will be our last Oscar Week column of the season. Let’s look at how contenders are hustling in Phase 2. In this phase campaigns pivot their messages to try and secure the win. This gives us more pointed and sometimes bold messaging. Like the exploitative use of the Muslim Travel ban by Lion. Always happy to see Sonny Pawar's expressive face, but this message is a bit of a stretch. Arrival is going for the heartstrings, showing Amy Adams hugging Jeremy Renner and talking to her daughter, rather than talking up the sci-fi elements. This is smart messaging since the mother-daughter relationship is what most leave the theater talking about »

In the clip, suburban married couple Scott (Farrell) and Kate's (Poehler) daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins) receives an acceptance letter to college and the couple quickly discovers they don't have money to cover the tuition.

The outlandish scheme includes a nail salon, »

Ferrell and Poehler portray parents who lose the money intended to pay for their daughter’s college tuition and open an underground casino out of desperation. Poehler totes a flame-thrower, proclaiming “I feel like such a badass!”
They also wind up telling their alarmed daughter — played by Ryan Simpkins — to keep her nose out of their business. “We love you so much but you need to shut up,” Ferrell tells her.
The trailer concludes with the implication of a cheater getting axed on some undisclosed part of his body after he taunts Ferrell and Poehler by saying, “What are you going to do about it?”

When twelve mysterious spacecraft appear around the world, linguistics professor Louise Banks is tasked with interpreting the language of the apparent alien visitors.
In an era full of crash-bang-gee-whiz science-fiction films, a movie like Arrival is a welcome it of fresh air. While its plot treads well-worn movie tropes about fearing aliens who suddenly arrive from another planet and humanity’s struggles to unite in their response to the situation, Arrival’s story digs deep into some interesting themes, including the question, “If you knew the future, would you change anything you’re doing right now?”
Based on Ted Chiang’s tale “Story of Your Life,” Arrival stars Amy Adams as Louise, a college professor who’s a well-known linguist. One day, a dozen alien spaceships arrive at different places around the world, »

Yep, yet another fleet of giant alien spaceships has Earth surrounded, but Denis Villeneuve’s movie is not your garden variety invasion fantasy. Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner have a limited time to figure out how to communcate with alien creatures whose intentions are a complete unknown. It’s a rare sci-fi thriller that succeeds on a personal and emotional level — while teaching us how to converse in coffee stain hieroglyphics.

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool. But perhaps more cool was the look at Thanos that was provided in the video. Now, in another welcomed reveal, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely has explained Thanos' grand plan.
Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.
"His goal is to re-balance the universe as he sees it. »

The Russo Brothers are currently hard at work in Atlanta shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, a shoot that is expected to take most of 2017 to complete. The next two Avengers movies are going to be the culmination of 10 years worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will see the Marvel heroes fighting their greatest foe yet; Thanos. Now, Marvel Studios has released a brand new, behind the scenes video, giving us our very first look at Avengers: Infinity War, and it is amazing.
Marvel dropped the video online out of nowhere, completely surprising fans with their first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. It may not be a trailer, but it is easily the next best thing and is more than enough to get McU fans extremely excited. In the video, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had this to say about finally bringing Thanos properly into »
Marvel certainly doesn’t have a shortage of movies on their plate at the moment. This year alone, they’ve got Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok set for release, and that’s without mentioning the multiple other films in various stages of production. Yet, Black Widow remains curiously without her own starring vehicle, even though Johansson was 2016’s top-grossing starlet. Indeed, it’s a no-brainer, yet Marvel still doesn’t have Black Widow on their schedule. So, what gives?
According to Johansson herself, it’s a “timing” matter that’s preventing it from happening. In an interview with Total Film for next month’s Ghost in the Shell remake, Johansson discussed the long-promised project, believing it’s still very much possible.
I’ve talked to Kevin Feige about it. We’re creatively really compatible. I think we both agree that the character is right for a standalone, »
