Armie Hammer Joins Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Armie Hammer is in talks to join the ensemble of Tom Ford’s next pic “Nocturnal Animals,” starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Michael Shannon and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also on board to star, with Ford writing, producing and directing.

Focus Features is handling worldwide distribution after winning a bidding war this past May at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film is an adaptation of Austin Wright’s 1993 novel “Tony And Susan.” The first of the two-part story follows a woman (Adams) who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second part revolves around a man (Gyllenhaal) whose family vacation turns violent.

Hammer will play Adams’ husband in the pic. Production is set to start this fall on the pic, which Robert Salerno will also produce.

Hammer was most recently seen in Warner Bros. action pic “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” alongside Henry Cavill. »

'Avengers 2' Blu-ray Featurettes Spotlight Ultron, Vision and the Twins

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. Stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo discuss what it was like working with James Spader, while we get to see behind-the-scenes footage of the actor in his motion-capture suit. We also hear from Andy Serkis, who not only played Ulysses Klaue in the superhero sequel, but he also served as a consultant for the motion-capture work.

The second Avengers: Age of Ultron preview features more behind-the-scenes footage of James Spader as Ultron, but his motion-capture outfit is just a bit different this time. Later on in the film, Ultron evolves and becomes a much bigger machine, so to compensate for the size difference, »

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.

Join in the discussion in the comments box below and consider the spoiler alarm sounded for anyone not fully up to date with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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. »

Bryan Cranston didn't want his Godzilla character to die: 'It was a mistake... what a waste'

13 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's not uncommon to see an actor criticise their own movie after the fact, but few do it with as much class and thoughtfulness as Bryan Cranston.

Appearing on the Nerdist podcast, the Breaking Bad star revealed that he wasn't happy with the way last summer's Godzilla killed off his character Joe Brody mid-way through the movie.

Instead of tearing apart the decision, Cranston instead offered up an articulate explanation of exactly why he had an issue with the blockbuster.

"That character dying at that time was a mistake," he said. "I knew it when I read it. When I read it I said, 'Oh, page 50 this character who was the emotional core at the centre, that was guiding the audience in the story up to that point - he dies?' What a waste.

"They kind of dealt with it poorly, that's my only criticism of it because I »

Godzilla And His Monster Buddies Will Be A Whole Lot Bigger In The Sequel

11 August 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/Toho

I sort of admired last year’s Godzilla, but I definitely didn’t love it. The film’s attempt to channel a more character driven narrative through the usual blockbusting pigmentation was admirable, but unfortunately the human dramas weren’t strong enough to justify the decision. Godzilla ended up as a bit-player in his own movie, whilst Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s vanilla soldier dominated the story-telling to turgid effect. Nice try, but no dice.

One of the film’s screenwriters Max Borenstein seems to think the sequel will mark an improvement. Talking to Collider, Borenstein suggested that having laid the initial groundwork, he and director Gareth Edwards can heighten the scale. Whether that means we’ll be getting more of the bombastic action that characterizes the 2014 film’s finale, or a plethora of new monstrous titans for the eponymous lizard to face-off against remains unseen, but it »

UK Blu-ray for Avengers: Age of Ultron causes “sexist controversy”

10 August 2015 1:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Avengers Assemble (or just The Avengers as its known elsewhere) was released in the UK a few years ago, there was a huge uproar that it didn’t contain the commentary track from director Joss Whedon. Well, the UK release of its sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron has stirred up even more controversy.

The special edition covers, released yesterday, show Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and The Hulk, but not female characters Scarlet Witch or Black Widow. It also doesn’t contain Hawkeye, Quicksilver or Vision. The regular edition cover has the poster, which has Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury, but still no sign of Scarlet Witch.

Check out the images below:
