Following the exciting presentation at CinemaCon last week, 20th Century Fox released some new details for their upcoming releases. Check out the official synopses along with some photos for all their 2015 and 2016 films.

But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, Nasa and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, »

Watch: Hailee Steinfeld is an Assassin Turned High Schooler in 'Barely Lethal' Trailer

24 April 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Hailee Steinfeld to Play Carrie Pilby in Ya Adaptation If Matthew Vaughn's box office hit "Kingsman: The Secret Service" proved anything earlier this year, it's that audiences never get too tired of a cocky-teenager-turned-kickass-assassin storyline. While such a character is a staple of young-adult spy movies, director Kyle Newman and star Hailee Steinfeld are shaking the genre up in this summer's action-comedy "Barely Lethal." Steinfeld stars as Megan Walsh, a ruthless teenage special ops agent who yearns for a normal adolescence. After faking her own death and assuming the role of an exchange student, the agent quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of a typical American high school can be even more difficult than international espionage. "Barely Lethal' co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Dove Cameron and Thomas Mann. The film will be available on DirectTV beginning April 30. A theatrical »

Valiant comics ‘Bloodshot’ and ‘Harbinger’ getting movie adaptations

21 April 2015 5:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel and DC aren’t the only two comics companies churning out page-turning, pulpy action, and now they won’t be the only two studios duking it out for superiority on the big screen either.

Valiant Entertainment last month received a huge investment in their movie and TV development arm, and THR today reported that the comic publishing company has signed a five movie deal with Sony to bring two of their flagship titles, Bloodshot and Harbinger, to the big screen.

Bloodshot and Harbinger will each receive two films, with the first Bloodshot movie planned to arrive in 2017. The fifth film, Harbinger Wars, will bring the two properties together, effectively creating a Vcu to rival Marvel’s. This move was inspired by a 2013 crossover comic series of the same name.

This is an exciting move, as we’ve been interested in Valiant here at Sound on Sight for some time. »

New Fantastic Four trailer debuts: Doctor Doom makes first appearance

19 April 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new trailer for Fantastic Four has debuted online.

The clip offers a quick glimpse of Toby Kebbell's Doctor Doom, and provides a more detailed look at the group adapting to the powers they receive after teleporting to an alternate universe.

Kate Mara's Sue Storm is seen getting to grips with her new invisibility and force field abilities, as Michael B Jordan's Johnny Storm tries to control his flame.

The clip also shows a clear look at Jamie Bell's The Thing, while Miles Teller's Reed Richards feels guilty after his problematic expedition, declaring that he "just wants to fix" his friends.

The upcoming movie re-envisions classic Marvel Comics villain Doctor Doom as an anti-social programmer who turns evil, and he is no longer referred to as Victor Von Doom, but Victor Domashev.

Directed by Josh Trank and produced by Matthew Vaughn, Fantastic Four will be released »
