First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

The Raid Remake Is “In The Vein Of Black Hawk Down And Zero Dark Thirty”

19 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though The Expendables 3 shot blanks at the box office last weekend, only mustering a weak $16.2 million, that threequel’s director Patrick Hughes is already moving onto hopefully bigger and better things by heading up Screen Gems’ remake of The Raid. It seems a little strange that an American remake would be thought necessary for a three-year-old Indonesian martial arts actioner that has already been widely embraced across the world, but here we are. And recently, Hughes provided more details on what we can expect from this new Raid.

In a Grantland article about The Expendables 3, Hughes briefly mentioned The Raid, revealing that the remake will boast twelve leads (one of whom is The Purge: Anarchy star Frank Grillo):

Stallone’s endorsement is already paying off for Hughes. As The Expendables 3 rolls into theaters, the director is prepping his next blockbuster: a remake of the 2011 Indonesian fight film The Raid: Redemption. »

Chris Hemsworth, Jimmy Kimmel, Vanessa Hudgens and Niall Horan Take Als Ice Bucket Challenge

19 August 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The nominations are never-ending! Thanks to his Avengers: Age of Ultron co-star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth accepted the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, which raises awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease. "I didn't do it within 24 hours, so I'll donate some money as well, and everyone should get involved," he said Monday. After ice water was dumped over his head, the Australian actor said, "That's rather cold. It's a little bit refreshing actually." Hemsworth nominated fellow co-stars Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. Jimmy Kimmel, meanwhile, took time out of his "very important" fly fishing trip to accept the challenge from "former friend" Kerry »

Stellan Skarsgard confirmed in an interview with Total Film that he would be reprising his role as astrophysicist Dr. Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The character has appeared in both Thor films, and The Avengers. Here's what he said,

"I'm going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It's something really nice."

Skarsgard went on to reveal that he will be naked again in his next appearance in the Marvel cinematic universe,

"Yeah, I was naked again. They called my agent and said, 'Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?' My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist!"

When asked what he could say about Age of Ultron, he provides an idea of why his character is coming back.

"First of all, I don't know what I'm allowed to say, but usually they call me in if they need something explained. »

18 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.

Thor's Stellan Skarsgard Returning For The Avengers 2, May Go Nude Again

17 August 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The ensemble cast put together by Joss Whedon for The Avengers: Age of Ultron really borders on the ridiculous at this point. Not only is the movie bringing back the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Cobie Smulders back from the first Avengers, now the gang is going to include James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Don Cheadle and Paul Bettany as well (Bettany getting an upgrade from voice-over performance to a live-action role). Really, though, that is just a list of the actors that we know about. We can probably expect a few surprise appearances from other established supporting characters as well. For example... Speaking with Total Film (via Cbm), Stellan Skarsgard revealed that he will be making his fourth Marvel movie appearance with a part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news »

Fan-made: Sdcc '14 Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer Storyboard

17 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Given that fact that most of the images appear to be references to previously released images of the Avengers, I doubt that this guy actually has the trailer and made storyboards to closely resemble the footage. Nevertheless, it gives you a much better idea of the trailer. Did you enjoy the fanmade storyboards? Did it give you a better idea of the exclusive trailer you missed or did it only pour salt on the wound which desires the actual trailer? Leave a comment below and let us know. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015. »

Stellan Skarsgård will return (and go naked) as Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron

17 August 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an interview with Total Film (via ComicBookMovie), Stellan Skarsgård has revealed that he will return as Dr. Erik Selvig in Avengers: Age of Ultron. That marks Skarsgård’s fourth appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the interview, the Swedish actor talked about first playing the character in Thor, and admitted to knowing very little about the Marvel universe before signing on…

“What I said to Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, was, ‘All those superheroes? Still in those comic books? Can you make money out of that?’ The whole table just froze and looked at me as if I was an idiot. But you sign on for at least five films, I think. Or I did. I’m going to do my fourth. I’m going to be in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, a small appearance. It’s something really nice. Even if it’s owned by Disney now, »

Chris Pratt and Robert Downey, Jr. take the Ice Bucket Challenge

NFL teams have done it. Mlb teams have done it. The United States Men's Basektball Team has done it.  Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates have done it.  By Saturday afternoon, the Ice Bucket Challenge in support for Als (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease) had reached a cultural tipping point.  Yes, Oprah had joined the fray. But, not only Oprah, "Iron Man" himself Robert Downey, Jr. (a relative newcomer to social media) and a certain "Guardian of the Galaxy" named Chris Pratt. You can watch Pratt's attempt to ditch the bucket by drinking other versions of "ice" here:   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Chris Pratt.     You can check out Robert Downey Jr.'s dousing here:   Hemsworth! »

'Thor' Star Stellan Skarsgard Will Get Naked Again for 'Avengers 2'

16 August 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is promising quite a line-up of characters, as it has been revealed that even Stellan Skarsgard will be back as Dr. Erik Selvig, and the actor promises that he'll once again be naked.

Dr. Erik Selvig is a character created for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, an old colleague of Jane Foster's father who first debuted in 2011's Thor. He went onto play an important role in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, but made the biggest impression when he was asked to run naked in Thor: The Dark World. It sounds like the actor will once again be stripping down to nothing, this time for director Joss Whedon.

"Yeah, I was naked again. They called my agent and said, 'Do you think Stellan will mind being naked?' My agent laughed his head off. Yeah, I almost insist! Sometimes with a contract you get a nudity clause, which is fantastic. »

A Fan's Opinion of the Infinity Gems Used in the Marvel Universe

14 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Marvel Movies Wiki has released an entry on the Infinity Stones that describes the ones used in the moves. It states that the Tesseract is the Space Stone, the Orb used in Guardians of the Galaxy is the Power Stone, and the Aether is still unknown, but I disagree, and I will tell you why. This is purely my opinion and whatever I say has no pull in the Marvel universe, but I feel like the wiki entry and what Marvel reps have told us about the stones doesn't make much sense. In my opinion the Stones that we have seen so far are Wisdom, Power, and Space. I am basing my opinion on the Stones’ properties mentioned on the comic wikipedia page.

In Avengers the Tesseract should be the Mind Gem, because the Tesseract was giving knowledge to those it was used on. When it was used on Hawkeye, »

Meet Brenton Thwaites, the Star of The Giver and Your New Crush

13 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Giver opens this week, and that means it's time to familiarize yourself with the star of the big-screen adaptation. Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, the young hero of Lois Lowry's famous novel, opposite Jeff Bridges. If you haven't heard of him, you probably didn't catch his run on the Australian soap Home and Away - the same show on which Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, and Guy Pearce got their big breaks. He also turned up in Maleficent this year as Prince Phillip, but when we caught up with him recently, we really just wanted some intel on The Giver. Don't be jealous, but he totally jammed out with The Dude. Popsugar: Did you have any hesitation signing up for an adaptation of such a beloved book? Brenton Thwaites: No, my only concern in the beginning was my age. We worked that out by aging Jonas up a bit from the book. »

10 Biggest Actor Paychecks In Movie History

13 August 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ever since Jim Carrey scored the first-ever $20m paycheck for The Cable Guy, Hollywood salaries have been spiraling out of control. Actors now have the potential to make $100m and above for single project, which is a quite frankly ridiculous amount of cash. However, the days of A-list stars pocketing a basic salary of $20m and above are on the way out in favor of lower upfront fees and profit participation deals that see them land a substantial amount of cash if the movie is a commercial success.

It is this system that has seen Robert Downey Jr. and Dwayne Johnson go from barely a blip on Hollywood’s radar to two of the highest-paid actors in the business in less than a decade, while starring roles in blockbuster franchises or pulling double-duty as producer have seen the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio rake in big bucks over the last year. »
