Empire Magazine Reveals Another Image of Chris Evans as Captain America

31 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Next month's edition of the UK magazine appears to show the first image of the superhero in action for the 2011 Marvel Studios film. The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans »

Lr's The Blu Room: Legend Of The Guardians 3D & 2D Blu-Ray Review

30 December 2010 1:06 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Legend Of The Guardians:the Owls Of Ga' Hoole – (3D Blu-ray)Warner Home Entertainment2010/Rated PG/Running Time 97 minsList Price $44.98 – Now AvailableWhat would possess Zack Snyder to make a kiddie film about owls? I remember asking myself this question many months back when I first caught the trailer for the 300 director's latest, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. Had Snyder licked one too many Tootsie Roll pops or was he trying to show Warner Bros., the studio which had produced his last two films, that he could be a versatile director? Perhaps making a sure fire hit children's film was the only way the studio would back a radical idea like his bizarre looking epic Sucker Punch? Whatever the reason, I don't really care, because Lotg not only marks Snyder's best film, but proves he can handle stories of substance over style. Not that any of Snyder's familiar style is missing from Lotg, »

“Harry Potter,” “Twilight” sequels lead list of anticipated 2011 releases

29 December 2010 7:15 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: As soon as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” ended, I wanted to see the finale … so it’s no surprise that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two” leads a list of the Most Anticipated Movies for 2011 in a poll conducted by Fandango.com.

More than 1,000 people surveyed over the Christmas holiday chose the last “Harry Potter” as the film they can’t wait to see next year. Fans of the boy wizard will have to wait until July 15, which is when Warner Bros.’ series finally concludes.

Coming in second place in the poll was yet another sequel: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1,” which is due in theaters on Nov. 18. Guys, meanwhile, said they are most looking forward to the second “Hangover,” which will be in theaters on May 26.

So 2011 looks sequel-heavy, and Marvel has to be a little »

Legend Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’Hoole Blu-ray Review

28 December 2010 4:24 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Zack Snyder. A CG animated owl movie. Holy crap, did that actually happen? Yes it did, it’s that movie with the terrible name Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. It’s based on a kid’s book, but still. The story of a young owl named Soren (voiced by Jim Sturgess) who’s stolen with his siblings to be a slave for the “Pure Ones” headed by Metalbeak (Joel Edgerton) and his wife Nyra (Helen Mirren), but Soren’s destined to be a great owl, and perhaps savior. Abbie Cornish, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Richard Roxburgh, Hugo Weaving, and David Wenham are also feature voice performers. The review of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole on Blu-ray follows after the jump. It takes about a half hour to fall in with the film, as owls are weird creatures to personify. But that’s all the set-up. »

New Set Pics From Captain America

28 December 2010 8:44 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Nothing too fantastic to croon about, but at least it’s more than just pieces of some plane or extras walking around on some set. You do get to see star Chris Evans chilling on set (between takes, we assume), Hayley Atwell looking all Kate Beckinsale-lite in her WWII uniform and hairdo, and director Joe Johnston doing what he’s supposed to be doing, which in this case is directing. Plus, a shot of some smoky room with some folks meeting or some such. Anyways, the scans are from Veronica Magazine, and brought to you courtesy of the Chris Evans Blog. “Captain America: The First Avenger” stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Toby Jones, and is directed by Joe Johnston. The Cap slings his shield July 22, 2011. click on the pics to enlarge »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole’ Wastes Talent

27 December 2010 2:17 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The best parts of a Zack Snyder picture have consistently been the opening title sequences, from “Dawn of the Dead”’s apocalyptic montage to “Watchmen”’s brilliant prologue scored to Bob Dylan’s “The Time They Are A-Changin’.” Snyder’s latest problematic novel adaptation, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is no exception.

The film kicks off with a promising opening shot from an owl’s perspective, soaring through the air to show off the spectacular work of the animators. Billowing clouds, breathtaking waterfalls, and towering trees provide the photogenic framework for the gorgeously lensed owls, and for a fleeting moment, the film succeeds in capturing the exhilarating freedom of flight. Yet the film instantly falls apart once the owls open their beaks and celebrity voices come tumbling out.

Blu-Ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

More than any recent computer animated adventure, “Ga’Hoole” begs the question: why go »

Chris Evans Talks Captain America & The Avengers

21 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Last month, we got a look at the first official images of Chris Evans (as Steve Rogers/Captain America), Haley Atwell (as Peggy Carter), Hugo Weaving (as Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. The Red Skull), Stanley Tucci (as Doctor Abraham Erskine) and Richard Armitage (as Heinz Kruger) from the Joe Johnston directed, Captain America: The First Avenger.

Cap himself, recently spoke with Wizard Magazine and talked about the film, the fans, The Avengers and more. Check it out below!

Comic book fans are particularly protective of Captain America. He is after all supposed to be the physical and moral pinnacle of humanity. Does that shield feel heavy under all that pressure?

Chris Evans: As far as the physicality goes, that comes from the serum, and I think special effects will help me carry the load. As far as who he is as a man, the reason he’s chosen »

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole - Blu-ray Review

21 December 2010 9:56 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Legend of the Guardians is a grand, Shakespearean look at a world of warring owls. It.s done as a fantastic world that I delighted in being immersed in. It.s perhaps a bit more of an adult adventure since there are conflicts and suspense aplenty. Soren (Jim Sturgess), his brother Kluud (Ryan Kwanten), and younger sister Eglantine (Adrienne DeFaria) are owls being raised in their nest by their father Noctus (Hugo Weaving), mother Marella (Essie Davis), and nursemaid snake Mrs. P. (Miriam Margolyes). Noctus delights Soren with tales of the Guardians of Ga.Hoole, warlike owls who defend the land, but Kluud is jealous of his brother.s natural skill and father.s attention. The rival brothers fall out of their »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

[DVD Review] Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

18 December 2010 3:58 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

First off, just wow. This film has remarkably and unexpectedly incredible visuals. With that said (and to be expounded upon more later on) let’s continue.

In the wake of the overwhelming success of the Harry Potter film franchise, studios have bought up rights to countless young adult fantasy novels and thrown their film adaptations at the wall hoping that one of them will stick as the next big thing. City of Ember, The Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Golden Compass, and now Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole have all failed to make the mark needed to establish themselves as the serious contenders for that all-important “family film” niche. In the case of Legend of the Guardians, directed by Zack Snyder, the fault doesn’t lie with the visual or audio presentation as it features stellar animation, well-executed fight sequences (owl-on-owl violence »

Jon Favreau Won’t Be Directing Iron Man 3, Visiting the Magic Kingdom Instead

15 December 2010 10:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Earlier this month, we brought you the news that Marvel Studios was location scouting in Troy, New York for the production of Iron Man 3. Director Jon Favreau (Cowboys & Aliens) also dropped some info about the third installment, saying that Iron Man 3 would actually be more of a sequel or continuation of Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, and the Joss Whedon directed team-up, The Avengers, than a follow-up to Iron Man 2.

Now, NYMag reports that Favreau will not be directing the third installment of the Iron Man franchise. The director will however be sticking with Marvel’s parent company for his next film, directing Magic Kingdom for Walt Disney Pictures.

Favreau confirmed the news on Twitter – saying,

It’s true, I’m directing Magic Kingdom, not Iron Man 3. I’ve had a great run with Marvel and wish them the best.

The director then told the La Times, »

Could 'Mass Effect' be the first worthwhile videogame adaptation?

9 December 2010 8:59 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Do you remember the Super Mario Bros movie? Either you’ve erased it from your memory, or failing that, it’s ingrained itself onto your brain forever, like some virtual cattle-brand. It was the stuff of nightmares, a true example of Hollywood at its appallingly naïve worst. They took a game based on a fundamentally light-hearted adventure in which two whacky Italian brothers side-scroll across the screen, jumping on Goombas and eating colourful mushrooms (which explains a great deal)... and turned it into a dystopian B-movie. It had zero resemblance to the game except for the slapped-on character names.

Yet for the changes within the industry itself, Hollywood’s take hasn’t changed a bit. If you take a look at the track record of game-to-movie adaptations across the years, it’s plain to see that the standard has not been raised one bit. Movies like Street Fighter, House of the Dead, »
