Will Batman V Superman Surprise Us With A Super Bowl Trailer?

1 hour ago

Even though it.s still over a year away from release, there.s been a lot of talk about if we.ll see a trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice airing soon. Aside from the images of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman and the Comic-Con exclusive clip that aired last July, there hasn.t been any official footage released for the film yet. There have plenty of rumors in recent months about when Warner Bros plans to give us our first taste of what.s coming in 2016, and the latest one suggests that the first preview for the superhero team-up film might air during this Sunday.s Super Bowl Xlix. Comicbook.com has heard rumors that Warner Bros. may air a TV spot during the football championship game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. The article mentions that this could be Warner Bros.' way of »

This Insane Fast & Furious 7 Car Stunt Will Blow Your Mind In 7 Seconds

3 hours ago

All week, we will be confirming the airing of various Super Bowl movie trailers during Sunday.s big game. Jurassic World and Insurgent already promised to show us footage. Now we also know that Universal bought time for James Wan.s Furious 7, and . appropriately . seven seconds of car-flying awesomeness hit social media this afternoon: (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 Paul Walker. This clip was posted to Paul Walker.s official Facebook page, and it very quickly runs through some incredible vehicular stunts that will be part of the latest Fast & Furious adventure. The part that I love about this is that you can pause on each insane stunt, and still not get »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2's Super Bowl Spot Has A DeflateGate Joke

4 hours ago

If there.s one reason for which we can give credit to the puzzling sequel, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, it.s clearly, no pun intended, timeliness. The upcoming raucous romp rippling through the space-time continuum has unveiled its upcoming Super Bowl spot and, appropriately enough, a joke about the football-related scandal of the month regarding "air pressure" was present in the comedy's new Super Bowl spot and shown in all its prominent, non-flaccid glory. Indeed, in the wake of the scandal that has rocked the sports world, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was intent on making sure that the balls which it was obligated to display would not be graspable by dubious, unsportsmanlike means. Because, as anyone can attest, balls need to be handled in a delicate manner, yet, with a modicum of roughness, for they are shy and fickle by nature and the temptation to pull them out »

Super Bowl Movie Trailers: 10 Films That Need Awesome TV Spots

4 hours ago

Super Bowl Sunday is a lot like Christmas morning for movie geeks. In between breathless updates on Deflategate, we are able to "unwrap" new footage from a full slate of pending, effects-driven blockbusters. well, the ones that were able to spend millions on a 30-second TV spot showcasing their wares. Not every 2015 blockbuster needs a Super Bowl spot. Hollywood knows that you.re already sold on The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World (and the latter already confirmed its presence on the Super Bowl airwaves). Why waste money preaching to the choir? Instead, these are the 10 movies on Hollywood.s release schedule that could use a Super Bowl boost. Maybe they aren.t on your radar yet? Maybe a studio showed some footage, and it didn.t go over as well as planned? Super Bowl Sunday could be Salvation Sunday if these films play their cards right and blow »

The Huntsman: These Dwarves Want No Part Of The Sequel

5 hours ago

Snow White and the Huntsman 2 seemed ridiculous to begin with. It cut out the Snow White part and is simply being called The Huntsman. I mean, that can happen when one of the worst parts of your movie is Snow White herself. But now that the film has a solid release date of April 22, 2016, two more familiar faces revealed they won.t be returning. Actually three, but two of them didn.t really want to be involved. We.re referring to three of the seven dwarves, the ones played by Simon Pegg.s comedy buddy Nick Frost, Toby Jones of the Captain America films, and Ray Donovan.s Eddie Marsan. Marsan was already unlikely to return because of his television duties, but Deadline reports that the other two did not agree to the terms. Instead the trade states that The Huntsman will only feature three members of the fairy tale »

Ewan McGregor Thinks Star Wars: The Force Awakens Already Got One Big Thing Wrong

5 hours ago

It doesn.t look like .ole Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a role when Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits this December. However, Ewan McGregor, who played the younger version of the grizzled Jedi and a veteran of some of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.s most seizure-inducing lightsaber battles, has some lightsaber-related criticism on the upcoming film.s most notable new weapon. While discussing his thoughts on Episode VII with Vanity Fair, McGregor brings up what is increasingly becoming the film.s 800 lb. gorilla in the new, quasi-medieval crossguard model lightsaber wielded by new character, Kylo Ren. His initial thought on the matter was that he was "a bit dubious," adding: It.s got a hilt now. You don.t need a hilt. If you know how to handle a lightsaber, like we did, you don.t need a hilt. That.s just one thing that I think »

Jupiter Ascending Premiered And It Did Not Go Well, At All

5 hours ago

It was revealed yesterday that the surprise screening at this year.s Sundance was the Wachowski.s highly anticipated sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending . which is kind of odd, because you don.t normally think of a film requiring 3D glasses as the secret screening of Sundance. Nevertheless, this was the first time anyone has seen this film. Unfortunately, the reception was not what Warner Bros. was hoping for (i.e. it was really bad). As reported by Yahoo Movies, the event was invite-only and took place at the Egyptian Theater in Park City. Despite all the hype and secrecy, though, there were clusters of vacant seats in this 300-person theater. Worse still, a "handful" of people left before the movie was even done, and by the time Jupiter Ascending finished, people were heard sneering. Someone in attendance, who wanted to remain nameless for obvious reasons, called it "ridiculous," while another »

How Marvel Will Use Avengers 2 To Set Up Civil War

6 hours ago

Captain America: Civil War was one of the bigger news items to come out of Marvel.s massive announcement of the Phase Three slate. Not only will it introduce Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther to the cinematic universe, it will also pit Chris Evans. Captain America against Robert Downey Jr..s Iron Man. But, as one of Marvel.s screenwriters reminded us recently, we.ll see the first seeds of discord planted in The Avengers: Age of Ultron in May. Collider recently spoke with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writing duo who.ve been working on a number of Marvel projects. In addition to writing the first two Captain America movies and the Agent Carter series, they have returned to pen Civil War. However, as McFeely revealed, they did not have any involvement in that scene we saw from Age of Ultron that sets up tension between the star-spangled »

Are The Farrelly Brothers Breaking Up?

7 hours ago

Bobby and Peter Farrelly have been joined at the hip since 1994 . cinematically speaking, of course. Their first film together was with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber, and they.ve since gone on to direct eleven feature films together. But is it finally time for them to cut the chord and set out to make waves on their own? We wonder, because Bobby has signed on to direct his first movie without his big brother. As reported by The Wrap, he will helm a comedy called One Night Stan, which was something that both brothers were originally attached to. Though, Peter is at least working on it as an executive producer. The story is also very Farrelly Brothers-esque: Stan, known for his one-night stands, finally considers settling down when he falls in love with a woman named Amy, but she too "has her own ideas about relationships. »

Star Wars: The Weird Way J.J. Abrams Reacted After Harrison Ford's Injury

7 hours ago

We all react to incidents in different ways. Some choose to lash out at others in the wake of pain or tragedy. Some choose to internalize everything until it explodes out of them in a fury or tears. But if you.re like Star Wars: Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams, you might turn all this pent-up energy into an emotional speech about how beautiful the moon is. At least, this was what happened after Harrison Ford broke his leg. We all know the story of how Han Solo got injured on the set of the new Star Wars movie: the Millennium Falcon door broke off its hinges and impaled him, breaking his leg and sending him to the hospital. With the 72-year-old.s health in jeopardy, not to mention his future in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams was undoubtedly worried for the man. However, after the incident when »

But just when you've thought you know what's headed your way, a surprise hits you in the face. This time, that surprise is coming from Tom Brady, as we've received news that the New England Patriots quarterback is not only going to be in the Super Bowl ad for the Seth MacFarlane directed sequel, but that he's also in the film! The Hollywood Reporter got the news from sources that Ted 2's Super Bowl spot is so secret that not even Universal-owned NBC knows what it'll contain. That, however, didn't stop the inside from providing some details about just what Tom Brady will be doing in the ad for in the film. If you don't want to know anything about Ted 2's plot »

The 6 Main Ghostbusters Characters And Who Will Probably Play Who

19 hours ago

Earlier today, Sony Pictures delivered rather huge news about director Paul Feig.s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. The studio announced that they had officially signed deals with the Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon to play the lead roles in the movie, the comediennes assigned the task of bringing the horror comedy franchise into the 21st century. What the big reveal lacked, however, were any kinds of details about the characters that each of the ladies will play. Now those details have started to come out. HitFix has apparently gotten the inside track where Ghostbusters reboot information is concerned, and they have published an article chock full of information about both the main characters in the new film and the identities of the actors most likely to play them. They note that the upcoming blockbuster won.t just be creating female versions of Venkman, Spengler, Stantz, and Zeddmore, »

Ant-Man Will Feature This Training Montage

19 hours ago

While the first trailer didn't do the best job of showing it, Ant-Man promises to be one of Marvel.s funnier projects. Helmed by Peyton Reed, who has directed movies like The Break-Up and Yes Man, written by Anchorman director Adam McKay and starring comedy veteran Paul Rudd, the shrinking superhero.s debut will include many lighthearted moments interspersed among the superhero and heist elements. One of these humorous scenes will be a sparring match between Scott Lang and Hank Pym.s daughter, Hope Van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly). Empire Magazine was on set to watch this scene being filmed. It starts off in Hank Pym.s basement gymnasium, or as Rudd calls it, "the Pymnasium." Rudd is warmed up and ready for the training session - presumably getting in fighting shape so that he can get ready for his job in the Ant-Man suit. Suddenly, he is punched »

Robert Downey Jr. Is Going To Give Us A Really Sad World War II Movie

20 hours ago

As famously recounted in Quint's dramatic monologue in Steven Spielberg's Jaws, the fate of the USS Indianapolis is one of the most horrific tales of World War II. It's a story of capsize, starvation, dehydration, shark-attacks and death, and while there was ultimately a light at the end of the tunnel, that doesn't make the events any less brutal. Now those events will be getting brought to cinematic life courtesy of producer Robert Downey Jr. and director Tate Taylor - though they will be unfolding through the filter of a young boy looking to find justice for a hero in the whole mess. The Wrap has the news out of Sundance at that the helmer of the Oscar-winning The Help and last year's Get On Up is now set to direct the USS Indinapolis-centric film, which does not yet have a title. The main story in the movie will »

Then you.ll get a kick out of this supercut tribute to women in prominent action movie roles.literally. Women have been kicking ass on the big screen since before Sigourney Weaver proved she could hold her own against vicious aliens in Alien, but over the last 36 years, stars like Milla Jovovich (in The Fifth Element and Resident Evil), Carrie Anne-Moss (The Matrix), Linda Hamilton (the original Terminator movies) and Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) have succeeded her as the kick-ass female action stars of the modern era. This supercut seems to honor the ladies by giving us a taste of some of their best moments. Compiled by Vimeo user ClaraDarko, the clips are cut to the song "Derezzed" by Daft Punk, »

At Least One 2015 Oscar Musical Number Is Going To Be Awesome

23 hours ago

Part of the what makes the Oscars ceremony so spectacular are the elaborate musical numbers. And if Neil Patrick Harris has anything to do with it, it won.t simply be something as misogynistic or toilet humor-y as Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs." He.ll be sure to add some of his class and Broadway flair to the mix. However, a new development has emerged that will make you even more excited to see the multi-talented, Tony-winning, Golden Globe-nominated actor hit the stage. Have you ever heard the names Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez? No? It.s ok. They only wrote one of the catchiest songs of all time - the song you and your Disney-loving kids have been humming to yourselves since 2013. They.re only the magical duo who made us all want to "Let It Go." The Academy announced this morning that the married duo who »

Suicide Squad: Will Harley Quinn Have A Thick Accent?

27 January 2015 2:17 PM, PST

After decades of appearing in various cartoons and video games, Harley Quinn is finally heading to the big screen in 2016.s Suicide Squad. Although this isn.t her first live-action appearance (she was an antagonist in the short-lived 2002 series Birds of Prey), the movie will be her most high=profile appearance yet, introducing her to moviegoers not familiar with her history at DC. Although it.s still unclear what exactly this version of her will be like, there are several things that are likely to be brought over for her theatrical debut - like her white-skinned, harlequin-like appearance, and her unhealthy relationship with "Mistah J". Chief among Harley.s defining qualities, though, is her infamous Brooklyn accent, but will we actually get to hear it during the film? The actress playing her seems to think so. Margot Robbie recently sat down with SuperHeroHype, and revealed during the interview that while »

Avengers 2: Scarlet Witch Will Be More Of A Dancer Than A Fighter

27 January 2015 2:01 PM, PST

In Joss Whedon.s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can surely expect to see characters like Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America getting into fisticuffs with various henchmen and bad guys, but action sequences will be a very different deal when Elizabeth Olsen.s Scarlet Witch is involved. After all, she is more of a spell-caster than a punch-thrower. What.s interesting about that separation, though, was how it impacted the approach to the character in the film, and as such, Olsen was told to see the character as more of a dancer than a fighter. This interesting bit of background was recently provide by Elizabeth Olsen during an interview with Empire Magazine, where she went in depth about playing one the Marvel Cinematic Universe.s newest characters in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Discussing the way she went about moving in the skin of Scarlet Witch, the »

Independence Day 2 Is Happening With Liam Hemsworth, Get The Details

27 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST

It appears that the Independence Day sequel is finally a go, and it has now locked in on the actor that it wants to cast as the new hero: The Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth! The nearly two-decades-in-the-making sequel, titled ID Forever will finally get off the ground for a new generation of moviegoers. According to a scoop from The Wrap, Liam Hemsworth, the younger brother of Thor star Chris Hemsworth, has been offered the leading role in the long-anticipated sequel to the 1996 perennial crowd-pleaser. Should the report prove true, this will be a major jump in the stock of the younger Hemsworth brother, as he attempts to fill the unmistakably charismatic leading man shoes of Will Smith - who, after a period of negotiations, decided he would not be returning for a second run with the Independence Day franchise. With Liam Hemsworth in the spotlight - likely as the »

The All-Female Ghostbusters Movie Casts Melissa McCarthy, 3 Other Comediennes

27 January 2015 1:17 PM, PST

Who ya gonna call? Paul Feig finally revealed who he dialed up to star in his all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and the choices are incredibly exciting, and funnier than you.d ever imagined. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are "expected to sign on" as the four spirit hunters in Paul Feig.s anticipated comedy, THR now reports. Katie Dippold is writing the script for the new movie. We have no idea when the film is expected to be in theaters, though, as Ghostbusters has been mired in uncertainty for years now. Finally however, it seems to me driving in the right direction, with a new "captain" and an exciting new cast. Let.s break down the choices. Melissa McCarthy McCarthy is Paul Feig.s go-to warrior, having popped up in Bridesmaids and the buddy-cop comedy The Heat. It was basically understood that Feig would be bringing his »
