Chris Hemsworth on How Ultron Can Hurt Thor in ‘Avengers 2′

4 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Avengers: Age of Ultron sees Marvel’s superhero team facing the threat of Ultron, a robotic entity created by Tony Stark to police the world – a directive Ultron believes to be only achievable through the extinction of humanity. When Tony’s greatest creation becomes the world’s worst nightmare, how well can the Avengers protect the world – or even their bond as a team?

That’s one question facing us in Avengers 2, but for the real hardcore fans (and/or those generally curious) there is also the question of how much of a threat a robot poses when faced with the likes of an unstoppable green rage monster and/or a god of thunder – both of whom have been known to trounce gods. From what fans saw of the Avengers 2 teaser footage at Comic-Con 2014, James Spader’s Ultron will be a formidable ...

5 Ways to Make That ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’ Prequel

6 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Now let’s just hold our horses and keep away from the “who asked for this?!” talk, because you know who asked for a sequel to Rupert SandersSnow White and the Huntsman? Every single person who paid to see the first film – $400M worth of ticket sales, worldwide – probably including you. It’s okay, we all have to learn from our mistakes, and perhaps now we’ll get a new revisionist fairy tale (heavy on the revisionism) that doesn’t feel so bizarrely dark and boring. Back in June, we learned that director Frank Darabont was indeed set to helm the newest film and, what, we’re sorry, Kristen Stewart, no, we don’t need you for this one, thanks though. Now we’re getting still more information, thanks to Deadline, including a release date for the film (April 22, 2016), the news that both Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are indeed set to come back and that »

Chris Hemsworth to Lead 'The Huntsman' Prequel for April 2016

16 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month came word that a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman was in the works with Frank Darabont behind the camera, but without Kristen Stewart in front of it. Instead, the follow-up at Universal Pictures was going to focus solely on Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman. Now we have confirmation from a press release by the studio that Darabont will definitely direct the film, simply titled The Huntsman, and the film will arrive on April 22nd, 2016. The film will be a prequel revealing "how the fates of two characters, The Huntsman Eric and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White." So there you go. Now we know why it was previously said that Charlize Theron might return, despite her fate in the original 2012 fantasy. We're not sure of any specifics regarding the story, but the current script was rewritten by Darabont himself with previous drafts by Craig Mazin (The Hangover III, »

Dates confirmed for The Mummy and Huntsman spin-off

16 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new The Mummy and Snow White And The Huntsman films will both arrive in 2016...

Universal has been having a strong year at the box office without sequels and franchises (save for The Purge: Anarchy). However, it's not taking that gamble again anytime soon, and it's lined up a couple of big hitters for 2016.

The studio has confirmed that the reboot of The Mummy, which Alex Kurtzman is directing, will arrive on June 24th 2016. That's two months later than originally announced.

The reason for the delay? So the studio can slot in the spin-off from Snow White And The Huntsman. Entitled The Huntsman, the new movie will focus on Chris Hemsworth's character, and Frank Darabont is attached to direct the movie. Charlize Theron will return, and The Huntsman is now set to land on April 22nd 2016.

We've nothing else to add at this stage, so we will go away. »

"Guardians of the Galaxy" Is the Delicious Gateway Drug to a Larger Marvel Universe

18 hours ago | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

To put it simply, Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel Studios betting that it’s built up enough of a reputation for crowd-pleasing romps of heroism that they can cash in their chips and take a risk on a franchise that doesn’t boast Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, or Chris Evans as Captain America. They’re willing to wager that you’ve come to trust the Marvel brand just enough that a space opera about a 70s hits grooving space pirate (played by first-time leading man Chris Pratt), a green-skinned assassin (Zoe Saldana), a blue-skinned maniac (Dave Bautista), a walking tree thing (Vin Diesel), and a gun-toting talking raccoon (Bradley Cooper) will be just within the limits of plausibility for audiences who can’t claim to have ever heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy to still give it a shot. »

22 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new Avengers: Age of Ultron international banner has been spotted in the wild, which reunites the original Avengers team. Standing in front of the new Avengers Tower (which used to be Stark Tower), we see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and just a sliver of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Together again, facing a sun that is about to set on their past adventures, these Marvel superheroes now face a new threat in Ultron, an android AI who is about to destroy their world. Take a look:

Snow White And The Huntsman 2 Officially Cuts Snow White, Gets A Release Date

23 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Somebody give Kristen Stewart a hug. Universal has been puzzling over how to make a sequel to Snow White And The Huntsman after the first film made $396 million. Rumors circulated that she would play a small-to-nonexistent part in the new film, which would primarily focus on the character of the Huntsman played by Chris Hemsworth. But no one would have guessed the studio was ruthless enough to simply subtract her from the equation completely to make The Huntsman. Universal has announced both a title and release date for The Huntsman, a prequel that will follow the adventures of Chris Hemsworth's character from the first film. You'll recall he had something of a tortured backstory, with his wife murdered by nefarious forces. We'll probably get to see more of that in this follow-up, which also brings back Charlize Theron's Raveena. Stewart at least has company on the unemployment line: »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

23 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

New Release Date Announced for The Mummy Reboot

31 July 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Yesterday we reported that The Mummy reboot was finally starting to emerge from its cinematic tomb with a new director, Alex Kurtzman, announced at the helm. Originally slated to come out in theaters on April 22nd, 2016, Universal Pictures has already revealed a new release date for the upcoming Mummy movie that will have fans waiting just a bit longer to see this monster in action.

Deadline reveals that The Mummy reboot will now hit cinemas on June 26th, 2016. Since the release has only been delayed by about two months, there shouldn’t be any major holdbacks in production.

The reason for the move comes from another big Universal property that filled in the abandoned April 22nd slot: The Huntsman, the prequel to 2012′s Snow White and the Huntsman that will be directed by Frank Darabont (showrunner on Season 1 of The Walking Dead, director of The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption »
