Iron Man 3 Revisited: “Some People Say Progress Is a Bad Thing”

11 hours ago

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening on Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] Marvel’s Phase Two begins without a Marvel movie. It may have a “Marvel Studios” logo on it and technically follow the events of The Avengers, but Iron Man 3 is really a Shane Black film that stars Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Rather than invest further into the new world established by The Avengers, Iron Man 3 takes some big steps back and flies in the opposite direction by ignoring as much of Joss Whedon’s film, and even the previous Iron Man movies, as possible. After a prologue taking us all the way back to 1999 and Tony’s carefree, insensitive times, the movie does try to throw in a bit of post-Avengers “Ptsd” by explaining how he can’t sleep and it’s caused by his near-death experience during the Battle of New York. The movie doesn’t really expand on this in any significant way, and it functions more as “Yes, »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Vehicles Revealed by Michael Bay

12 hours ago

I have yet to see last year's live action take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not out of any resentment for the material (I loved the B&W comics as a kid and there are actually quite a few Platinum Dunes movies that I really enjoy - Friday the 13th chief among them) aside from the fact that it just didn't seem like my thing. But enough of you did, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is on the way next year. The other day producer Michael Bay revealed images of some of the vehicles from the film on his website. I'm not sure if the Turtle's party wagon was in the first installment or not, but I'm willing to bet that Polaris' three wheeled motorcycle was not. Check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 vehicle images below. The film hits on June 3rd, 2016. It stars Megan Fox, Tyler Perry, »

Weekend Box Office: Furious 7 Scores Fourth Win on Pre-ultron Frame

14 hours ago

For the fourth weekend in a row, Furious 7 is the number one movie at the domestic box office. That puts the film in rarified company, as only the fourth film of the past decade to spend four consecutive weeks in first place. The other three four-time champions were Avatar, The Dark Knight and The Hunger Games. To give credit where it’s due, Avatar actually spent seven weeks in first place in 2009-2010 (what were we all thinking back then?) and Guardians of the Galaxy had four wins last summer – just not in a row. According to studio estimates, Furious 7 earned another $18.2 million between Friday and Sunday, or a drop of just 37% over last weekend. That brings the film’s domestic total to $320.5 million after 24 days. But the real story continues to be F7’s momentum overseas. Already the fastest film to break $1 billion in global sales (17 days »

Olivia Wilde Talks Meadowland and Tron 3

15 hours ago

Olivia Wilde has served as executive producer on a number of projects, but Meadowland marks her very first go at producing a feature film. As if that’s not challenging enough, she also stars as Sarah, a mother struggling to cope with the disappearance of her young son. It’s been a year since Jessie vanished during a trip up to Ithaca, but Sarah is still completely consumed by the loss and desperately searching for answers. While in New York City for the world premiere of Meadowland at the Tribeca Film Festival, I got the opportunity to sit down with Wilde to discuss her experience producing and starring in the film. She talked about her determination to champion accomplished cinematographer Reed Morano’s directorial debut, the nine-minute walking shot they did in Times Square, what it was like tapping into a character who’s in the midst of such a devastating situation and more. »

Courteney Cox Talks Directorial Debut Just Before I Go, Gus Van Sant’s Advice, and More

15 hours ago

From first-time feature director Courteney Cox, the off-center dramedy Just Before I Go follows Ted Morgan (Seann William Scott), who has been treading water for most of his life. After his wife leaves him, Ted decides to go home and face or confront the people he feels are responsible for turning him into who he has become. But the more he tries to get closure from his demons, the more he realizes that everything isn’t always what it seems. At the film’s press day, Courteney Cox spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about wanting to tell a story that provokes extreme emotions, the challenges of making this film, getting great filmmaking advice from both David Fincher and Gus Van Sant, why the editing process comes easy for her, how her background in acting helps her as a director, and how fortunate she feels about being in the position she’s in, »

Orphan Black Recap: “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis”

25 April 2015 7:04 PM, PDT

The Orphan Black season 3 premiere was a little underwhelming, but episode 2, “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis,” is everything I’ve been waiting for. Not only do most of the Leda clones feel like a piece of the same puzzle again, but so do the Castor clones as well. Tatiana Maslany delivers as usual, but Ari Millen’s Rudy steals the episode. After Seth frees Rudy, the two opt to have a little fun. Rudy brings a woman home for the night and they seem to be hitting it off, but little does she know, her new beau likes to share. In a handful of stunningly haunting visual tricks, Seth gets closer and closer until Rudy’s poor date finally realizes she’s in the middle of a threesome.  The two definitely come across as absolute psychopaths, but at the same time, there is an undeniable gentleness to Rudy and, as this episode progresses, »

Outlander Recap: “Lallybroch”

25 April 2015 7:01 PM, PDT

"Lallybroch" was one of those meditative episodes that spends a lot of time in the past, but it also spent ample time world-building. It's also probably the most novelistic episode Outlander has had, taking its time not to set up big moments or huge reveals, but just to portray a slice of life, and some more important (though quiet) moments in Claire and Jamie's relationship. "Lallybroch" was, fittingly, all about introducing us to Jamie's ancestral home, and meeting his sister Jenny. Even though it seemed likely from the start that Jamie and Jenny's frictions would be solved by the end of the hour, the journey was still delightfully awkward to watch. Her treatment of Claire "the trollop" was unsurprising, and that most of that ambiguity towards her Englishness certainly made sense given what Jenny and the Fraser tenants had been through.

Outlander: Ronald D. Moore and Gary Lewis Talk Fans, Partridge Family Socks and More

25 April 2015 6:30 PM, PDT

Ronald D. Moore certainly knows a thing or two about dealing with especially passionate fan bases, so who better to head up a book-to-tv adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander than him? The show centers on Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a WWII combat nurse who accidentally winds up traveling back in time to 1743. While Claire’s busy cozying up with Scottish soldier Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) in the 18th century, her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) is trying to track her down in 1945. I recently got the opportunity to sit down with Moore and Gary Lewis who plays Colum MacKenzie, the chieftain of the MacKenzie Clan, about working on the series. They discussed if the demographic of the book had an effect on what they do in the show, the especially steamy sex scenes, the “Partridge Family socks” Lewis has to wear so that they can depict the effect Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Home Release To Include Extended Cut, Alternate Ending

25 April 2015 3:59 PM, PDT

Is talking about Avengers: Age of Ultron's theatrical release already passe? Because new rumors are focusing on Phase 2: home release. Apparently (according to those who have seen it), many scenes from Ultron's trailer don't make it into the theatrical release, meaning that fans will be getting an extended release at some point that is closer to Joss Whedon's initial 3-hour version (which he confirmed in a recent Collider interview). That version may come sooner than later, though, as an email from Amazon UK about pre-ordering the home release has also confirmed not only that the movie will contain that extended version, but that it will also include an alternate ending. This is also interesting because it seems like Marvel won't be holding back on a ton of features for a (presumable) future box set release, which should certainly make fans happy, at least. Now, as for this »

Theo James Talks Franny, Working with Richard Gere and Allegiant at Tribeca

25 April 2015 12:13 PM, PDT

Theo James hit it pretty big after Divergent so if you’re quick to peg him as an indestructible action hero that’s pretty fair, but just wait until you see the more dramatic turn he takes in Franny. The movie stars Richard Gere as the title character, an insanely wealthy guy who doesn’t have a family of his own, but has basically become a second father to his best friends’ daughter Olivia (Dakota Fanning). Five years after their passing, Franny becomes obsessed with taking care of Olivia as if she were his own and that generosity extends to Olivia’s new husband, Luke (James), as well. Luke knows he shouldn’t accept the over-the-top gifts Franny keeps giving, but with a baby on the way, how can he turn down a house and a great career? While in New York City for the Franny world premiere at the »

The Avengers Revisited: “I Was Playing Something Even Riskier”

25 April 2015 10:02 AM, PDT

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening on Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] “The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could become something more,” Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) tells a downtrodden crew after Loki (Tom Hiddleston) escapes and the team is scattered. The same applies to Marvel’s plan for The Avengers. If Iron Man showed a new path for superhero movies, The Avengers showed a new path for blockbuster franchises. It wasn’t enough to just keep making more superhero movies. Marvel Studios showed that there could be superhero films far bigger than anything we’d seen before. And the studio put it all on the shoulders of a guy who had helmed three cult TV shows and a sci-fi film that flopped at the box office. They put it on a guy who broke from Marvel’s mold by having a distinct, singular voice that would unite characters who came from a »

Caption This: Cobblepot Confusion on Gotham, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Coulson Gets Casual

25 April 2015 9:33 AM, PDT

Last week in our inaugural Caption This post, I noted that when putting together our recaps over here on Collider TV, we’ve noticed that every week, episodic stills for some of our favorite shows end up being unintentionally hilarious, awkward, or just plain strange. So now on Saturdays, we’ll be posting one (or two) of these images, and asking you to leave your best caption in the comments. In the second week of "Caption This," I present to you a dilemma at the Cobblepot home. What realization do you think Gotham's Oswald Cobblepot and mother Gertrud Kapelput have come to in this scene? [caption id="attachment_448941" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image via Fox[/caption] And as a bonus (because often I simply cannot choose), this week's "Caption This" is brought to you in part by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Casual Coulson: [caption id="attachment_448939" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image via ABC[/caption]

Friday Box Office: The Age Of Adaline Tops Furious 7 on Opening Day

25 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT

This weekend is our last before Avengers: Age of Ultron brings the hammer down on the domestic box office. The sequel started its international rollout on Wednesday and took first place in all of its initial markets. In its first two days, Ultron earned $44.8 million. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the deluge to come, as evidenced by the fact that the film is already outpacing Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man 3 overseas. With so much attention focused on next week – when the official summer box office season begins here in North America – it’s no wonder that this weekend’s box office feels a bit subdued by comparison. The good news for Universal is that Furious 7 should have no trouble holding on to first place for a very rare fourth consecutive frame. The last film to spend four weeks in first place was The Hunger Games, »

The Best Reactions to Jared Leto’s Joker Reveal

25 April 2015 8:41 AM, PDT

Last night, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the character, director David Ayer revealed our first official full-size look at Jared Leto as The Joker in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Suicide Squad. With Heath Ledger’s iconic performance from The Dark Knight looming large, we figured we’d be in for something entirely different with Leto's take—and we were right. In keeping with this new Zack Snyder-created tone for the Warner Bros. DC Universe that was set in Man of Steel and will be solidified in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Leto’s Joker is like Nolan’s gritty Batman on steroids. The darkness of Nolan’s trilogy remains, but there’s an added twinge of revelry in the comic book source material as opposed to simply translating everything to “real life.” [caption id="attachment_449637" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via David Ayer[/caption] Reactions to the reveal of Leto’s Joker were unsurprisingly »

Salem: Creator Adam Simon Talk Season 2, Tituba, and Witch Cakes

25 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

Salem season 2 is taking things to a new level. The Great Rite was performed and the witch plague is in full force. Though Increase Mather (Stephen Lang) met his end at the hand of his son, Cotton (Seth Gabel), we’ve now got angry Puritans declaring all-out war against the women of the town, including Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery). A scientist (Stuart Townsend) has moved in to study the plague, while a powerful hereditary witch (Lucy Lawless) has come to investigate why this particular Great Rite was successful whereas her past attempt didn’t work. Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant) is now a powerful witch and Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle) is on the warpath. I got a chance to visit the Salem set in Shreveport, Louisiana a while back and talked to the cast and crew, including creator Adam Simon. He talked about the strangest thing he found out while researching the real Salem witch trials, »

Top 5: CinemaCon 2015, Fantastic Four Trailer, Spider-Man Shortlist, Black Mass, Amy Schumer Obliterates Rape Culture

25 April 2015 5:13 AM, PDT

Currently streaming on Netflix is director Tony Shaff's fascinating documentary Hotline. The film premiered last year at Canada's Hot Docs festival and focuses on a slew of American telephone hotlines for suicide prevention, psychic readings (starring Miss Cleo!), phone sex, and more. Its tagline states that "It's ok to talk to strangers" and while that's probably not the best advice to give the children in your life, within the context of the doc it's entirely appropriate. The idea of learning more about the hotline industry and the people on both ends of the phone is intriguing in its own right, but Hotline really found its footing with me through its exploration of telephone technology as a means of fostering meaningful, often times cathartic, human interaction amongst two anonymous parties. The doc puts an emphasis on the unique value of being able to verbalize our deepest fears, concerns, insecurities, etc. »

Michiel Huisman Talks Age Of Adaline, Game Of Thrones, and More

24 April 2015 8:38 PM, PDT

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

Wolverine Sequel: Michael Green Will Pen Hugh Jackman’s Last Turn as the Mutant

24 April 2015 7:02 PM, PDT

20th Century Fox has hired Green Lantern and Heroes scribe Michael Green to write the script for the upcoming The Wolverine sequel. Hugh Jackman will reunite with director James Mangold for the follow-up to their 2013 stand alone film, which offered a more introspective look at the character (until the third act devolved into the obligatory comic book movie action-fest). Per The Wrap, Green is returning to superhero territory after penning the highly anticipated Bladerunner sequel. David James Kelly was previously attached to pen the script for what Jackman recently announced will be his final performance as the grizzled mutant. According to recent comments by Patrick Stewart, the film may feature Professor Xavier and explore the fascinating relationship between the two characters. The Wolverine sequel is expected to arrive in theaters March 3, 2017, so it makes sense that Fox is putting the wheels into motion on the project at this time.

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

The Flash: New Promo Teases Final Showdown with Reverse Flash

24 April 2015 5:50 PM, PDT

The secret is officially out! After last week's episode "Who is Harrison Wells?", Team Flash is finally united in the knowledge that who Harrison Wells is isn't really Harrison Wells at all. When Cisco discovered the blueprints that led him, Barry and Caitlin to Dr. Well's super-secret lair of lies, the cat was out of the bag. And now it's time for the final showdown. With only four episodes left in the season, the time has come for Team Flash to confront the man that lied to them for so long and for Barry to exact justice on the man who killed his mother (and hopefully clear his father's name in the process). Trailer via The CW: Is it just me, or does that final shot of Reverse Flash look like it might be someone other than Tom Cavanagh? I detect a twist in our midst. And that's to be expected at this point. »
