Ever since the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released back in late November, fans have been clamoring for more footage from director J.J. Abrams' highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure. An unconfirmed report from January revealed that the second trailer will be attached to prints of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now being backed up by a new report from Collider, which states that the trailer is "definitely attached to every copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will play in theaters." Obviously, this move makes perfect sense, since Disney owns both Marvel and LucasFilm, and because Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected to be one of the biggest movies of the year. But the news hasn't been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm yet.
The site also reports that, as expected, Disney will first roll out the trailer for fans who attend Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, »
If you've been skeptical about Warner Bros. Pictures' reboot of the classic comedy Vacation, this news might change your tune. The studio is placing a lot of confidence in the comedy starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth because THR reports they've just bumped up the film from its original release date in October to a much better opening on July 31st this summer instead. That should make for some decent counter programming for anyone who isn't interested in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which was also bumped up from its original Christmas Day release. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are also back as Clark and Ellen Griswold, but this time it's Helms taking his own family on vacation as a grown up Rusty Griswold. Applegate plays his wife, with Mann playing his sister Audrey, and Hemsworth playing the latter's husband. This comedy reboot was one of »

A couple of key release date announcements and changes have been revealed today.
First up, the "Vacation" reboot has been pushed up by several months from October 9th to July 31st. This rekindling of the "National Lampoon's Vacation" franchise stars Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.
Finally, Sony Pictures has locked down a January 13th 2017 release date for Antoine Fuqua's remake of the classic western "The Magnificent Seven". Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D'Onofrio have signed on to star in the film with shooting expected to begin next month. »

Warner Bros. must have a lot of faith in its upcoming Vacation remake/reboot. The studio has bumped the comedy from it's October 9 release date, opening it a couple of months early. Vacation will now be a summer release, as it is scheduled to hit theaters in July.
July 31, to be exact. This is seen as a bold movie, as the film will now be going up against heavyweight sequel Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Also opening on that day are the boxing drama Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and The Gift, which marks the directorial debut of Joel Edgerton. Both Southpaw and Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation released trailers last week to much praise.
Vacation stars Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold, the grown-up son of Clark and Ellen. The story follows Rusty, his wife and two sons as they set off on their own road trip for Wally World. Christina Applegate will play Rusty's wife, »
Warner Bros. is apparently very bullish on its new Vacation movie. The studio has opted to move up the film’s release date from October 9th to July 31st, not only putting the comedy in the heat of the summer, but also squaring it off directly against Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. It’s a smart piece of counter-programming that WB hopes will draw audiences into the comedy redo, which is essentially a sequel to National Lampoon’s Vacation. The film marks the directorial debut of scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2) and stars Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty Griswold, who opts to take his own family on a vacation that goes horribly, horribly wrong. Christina Applegate plays Rusty’s wife, Leslie Mann is his sister Audrey, and Chris Hemsworth plays Audrey’s up-and-coming anchorman husband, marking »

Back in February, it was finally confirmed that Andy Serkis' mystery role in Avengers: Age of Ultron is in fact the Marvel comic book character Ulysses Klaw, after he briefly appeared in the first two trailers. It was never known how large a role the actor has in this Phase Two sequel, but he revealed at the Empire Awards that he only has a cameo appearance. Here's what he had to say, adding that Joss Whedon is a lot of fun to work with.
"It was really minimal. It's a tiny role, a little cameo role. But I just loved doing it and it's a great character. Joss is just great fun to work with."
Ulysses Klaw's appearance in the second trailer was just one of several hints that Avengers: Age of Ultron could be setting up their upcoming Black Panther movie, which is slated for release on July 6, 2018. In the comic books, »

In a recent interview with Den of Geek, Branagh was quizzed on if he would consider directing a future Thor movie.
"I have seen more of the movies, and as I've said before, I had a good time there," he explained. "It was a really sort of pivotal moment to me doing Thor, and I like them. I like [producer] Kevin [Feige] very much. You know, you never say never."
He continued: "I think I couldn't begin to speak for the complications of their interweaving of this ever-expanding universe, which is totally fascinating to behold. But I think they're masters of their own destiny.
"They know what they want, and we all got on terribly well. »

One facet that almost slipped through the cracks during the furore that is Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s marketing campaign was Anthony Mackie’s involvement — or lack thereof — in Joss Whedon’s much-anticipated sequel. Thankfully, there is a space at the admittedly crowded table for one Sam Wilson, and during a recent panel at the Emerald City Comic-Con, Mackie spoke about his part for the very first time, while also hinting at the relationship between Falcon and Steve Rogers for Captain America: Civil War.
Here’s what the actor had to say on the role, that friendship, and how Age of Ultron is akin to Disneyland for adults.
“With Falcon and Cap, what’s so great is there’s a mutual respect,” he started. “There’s a soldier respect. What’s great about Age of Ultron and [Civil War] is you get to see their relationship grow. Remember the first time you saw a 3D movie, »

What's so fun about talking to someone like Elizabeth Olsen about something as huge and important as "Avengers: Age of Ultron," is that it's clear she's not used to not be able to talk about stuff. The star, who famously starred in "Godzilla" last summer, which had an air of mystery but nothing like the behind-several-locked-doors secrecy of a Marvel movie, seemed genuinely befuddled, as the tried answering question after dweeby question without spoiling anything or getting herself (or others) in trouble. It was one of the more endearing qualities of a movie star made almost exclusively of endearing qualities.
In "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Olsen plays Scarlet Witch, a character more closely associated with the X-Men, but clearly a big part of Avengers lore as well. Her human name is Wanda Maximoff, the twin sister of Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver (played in the film by Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Instead of having powers involving punching, »

Joining a team as closely knit and unforgettable as "The Avengers" has got to be something of a challenge, even for an actor like Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who has gamely appeared in "Kick-Ass" (and its follow-up) and last year's mega-successful "Godzilla" reboot. "Avengers: Age of Ultron," after all, is the sequel to the most successful superhero movie of all time, and one that stars a chummy group that includes Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner.
Add to that the additional pressure of playing Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver, a super speedy Marvel character that audiences had just been introduced to the previous summer in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and it sounds like a pretty daunting proposition. (He'll appear alongside his "Godzilla" co-star Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Quicksilver's twin sister, Scarlet Witch, as the two new kids on the block.) Not »

Gal Gadot has been working out hard in an effort to appease critics of her casting as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, releasing several pictures of herself having ” bulked up” for the role. Personally, I literally cannot tell the difference before and after. Some will argue that it makes me misogynistic for criticizing an actress for not resembling the comic book character they’re portraying. However, I don’t think Gal Gadot is a good fit for Wonder Woman, and it has got nothing to do with sexism when I say that.
I have a question that the Gal apologists seem unable to answer. Why is it that it’s okay to say males need to have a certain physique to play a comic book role, but not females? Why is it that Chris Hemsworth »

During a lengthy piece over at Buzzfeed, Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige have been speaking about introducing the Maximoff twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, during which the director and producer commented on 20th Century Fox’s decision to include the silver-haired speedster in last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“It’s a unique scenario,” said Feige. “That’s the only character where that could happen, and it happened. We knew it would be very different based on the various interpretations of the character through the comic. It may as well be different characters.”
“Months after I started [on Age of Ultron], they were like, [Days of Future Past] just changed Juggernaut to Quicksilver. I’m like, ‘What?!’,” added Whedon. “There’s going to be an entire season of The Flash that’s gone on before my movie too, and what »

This is somewhat of a surprise. With one of its most popular hosts, Dwayne Johnson, NBC’s Saturday Night Live, dipped in the ratings to hit a season low in households. The show, hosted by Johnson with musical guest George Ezra, averaged a 3.7 household rating in Nielsen's metered markets and a 1.9 in adults 18-49 in the markets with Local People Meters. That was down from SNL‘s most recent original (4.0 household rating, 2.0 in 18-49) on March 7 hosted by Chris Hemsworth… »
[Last Updated March 29, 2015] There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is the superhero movie. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero films in droves. With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture. Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered. Below, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all the way up to the year 2020. Moreover, »

In an interview with BuzzFeed, director Joss Whedon has confirmed that his new sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron will be one full minute shorter than Marvel's The Avengers, clocking in at a hefty 142 minutes (2 hrs and 22 minutes). The first cut of the movie was actually a full hour longer, but a lot of backstory was cut out. Especially some moments with Scarlet Witch, which helped better explain her powers. But we'll still get to see those powers in full effect. The director reveals that we'll get to see inside this team of superheroes' heads, as Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is capable of giving them nightmares. He explains:
"She can make you have a nightmare, is one way of putting it. Trip balls would be another one. That was something I very much wanted, because it meant we could spend a little time inside the Avengers' heads, either their »
