Well, that got dark.
“I’ve Got No Strings” from Pinocchio has never sounded more terrifying than in the background of the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ulton -- and Pinocchio is a pretty scary movie, to be quite honest.
The trailer for the film was leaked, and Marvel had the best reaction:

James Spader is Ultron, replacing Tom Hiddleston’s Loki as the main antagonist in the next Marvel installment. We don’t know what Ultron’s motives are yet, but we’re sure his methods are effective. Just look at Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) curled up on the floor of the Helicarrier. These guys are scared.

What the Devil: Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple on Horns
21 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT
Much like the Twilight movies, Horns is a supernatural thriller that takes place in Washington State, was filmed in British Columbia, and concerns young people in love and pain.
That’s where the similarities end.
Directed by horror helmer Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, The Hills Have Eyes), this indie is a more abstract, messier take on the paranormal. It starts with the news that one of its main characters, Merrin (Juno Temple), is dead, perhaps murdered by her longtime boyfriend Ig (Daniel Radcliffe). At least that’s what everyone in town thinks.
But when sweet Ig inexplicably sprouts devil horns and develops the magical — and incredibly annoying — power to make everyone around him spill their darkest secrets, he realizes he can use this power to find out who really killed his beloved.
“We don’t try to explain it, it just f--king happens,” Radcliffe says of Ig’s devilish new traits. »
