50 Best Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30. Lady Snowblood Part 1 and Part 2

While American comic books have struggled for legitimacy as adult entertainment for decades, their Japanese counterparts have long enjoyed acceptance as legitimate elements of mainstream culture. So while the American comic book movie only properly took off in the last fifteen years, jidaigeki adaptations of popular manga have been a staple of Japanese pulp cinema since the early 1970s. The best of these remains Lady Snowblood, director Toshiya Fujita’s two part revenge opera of a woman checking off a kill list of the gangsters who killed her family and left her for dead. Any familiarity to Kill Bill is entirely intentional, with multiple visuals, soundtrack elements and plot points lifted whole cloth by Tarantino. But even for those only familiar with the update, Fujita’s films remain feats of hard edged efficiency, actress Meiko Kaji a goddess of death in a world of opposing colors and sudden violence. »

Armie Hammer Joins Tom Ford's 'Nocturnal Animals'

31 August 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Tom Ford had no trouble scooping up Us distribution for his buzzy postmodern thriller follow-up to "A Single Man" at this year's Cannes. The Focus Features project has now added Armie Hammer, recently seen in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," to a cast that already includes Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon and Kim Basinger. Hammer will play Adams' husband in the fashion icon turned filmmaker's first film since 2009. Based on Austin Wright's 1993 book "Tony and Susan," Tom Ford's script follows a woman, Susan (Adams), whose ex-husband sends her a book manuscript containing two stories: the title tale "Nocturnal Animals" about a man whose family vacation takes fatal turns, and the story of Susan as she recollects her first marriage and confronts her spiritual demons. Writer/director/producer Ford, who presented his vision to Cannes buyers this month, is set to begin production on the postmodern neo-noir this Fall, »

27 August 2015 4:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Learn more about the behind-the-scenes process of realizing the maniacal Ultron for the big screen in the first of two new featurettes for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving on 3D Digital and Digital HD September 8 and on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Sd and VOD October 2.

Marvel At The Creation Of Ultron In New Featurette For Avengers: Age Of Ultron

27 August 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Amid the cacophony of visual effects and bombastic action in Avengers: Age of Ultron, one of the more impressive feats was rendering a realistic and indeed formidable version of the title big bad to lock horns with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Part and parcel of that achievement comes down to the gravitas of James Spader and his dulcet tones, but as today’s new featurette reveals, there was also a chunk of CG-intensive work to do before the power-mongering AI could walk onto the screen as a compelling villain.

Releasing in anticipation of the sequel’s Blu-Ray launch at the beginning of October, the clip gives fans a little insight into the creative process within Age of Ultron. Standing at eight feet tall, Spader’s sentient creation needed to assimilate into the scene seamlessly, and a large part of that comes down to the reaction of his surrounding stars. Here, »

See What James Spader Looked Like in His Wild Mo-Capped Ultron Suit

26 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As Avengers: Age of Ultron gets ready to drop on digital HD and the Disney Movies Anywhere app on September 8, and then on DVD/Blu-ray October 2, we're starting to get some fun behind-the-scenes images and videos, like this showing us what James Spader looked like as Ultron. Well, we know what Ultron looked like, but this is what Spader actually looked like while performing as Ultron in a full motion-capture suit --complete with red dots high above his head meant to be Ultron's eyeline for those actors playing off him. In this case it's Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) who, in the video below, admit it was difficult to act opposite Spader because they couldn't look at him -- they had to look three feet above him.

The post-credits scene for the year's biggest Marvel movie snuck online this week with Thanos' appearance at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron landing on YouTube.

The latest in an increasingly long line of fan-rewarding teasers, its arrival heralds a new and very dangerous list: Marvel's post-credit stings from worst to best.

Tony Stark confronts General Thunderbolt Ross

Tony Stark's hypercool presence is a welcome one - and it's neat that Ross's drink is Gamma green - but Marvel never followed up on this tag in future films and eventually had to make a special short to explain it. Incidentally, William Hurt will be back for Captain America: Civil War next year, where hopefully he won't punch any plot holes into the script. »
