What If Man Of Steel Was In Colour?

11 hours ago

We all know Man of Steel was a pretty bleak affair, but this darker vision of the Superman mythos bled over to the colour grading, with director Zack Snyder taking cues from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight saga. It really wasn't a vision that suited Superman, with all the muted colours, especially the iconic red and blue suit, just looking drab. But the talented folks at VideoLab have come to the rescue, peeling back Snyder's colour grading to reveal a much sunnier, and more appropriate, Superman movie which really pops. It is really is something quite remarkable, and tells you a lot about the current approach to DC Comic's super heroes on the big screen. »

New Clip From Arnie's Maggie

12 hours ago

A very different take on the zombie genre, Henry Hobson's Maggie is gaining a lot of notoriety because of a rare dramatic turn from Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the man himself has shared with us a new clip from the movie, featuring those dramatic chops in action. Here is a clip from my new film @MaggieMovie. You've never seen a zombie film like this. https://t.co/jA80UTHbWX — Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) April 24, 2015 Concerning itself with the more human drama to be found when your loved ones become the brain eating undead, Maggie definitely has my interest piqued, both as a unique vision of an over saturated genre and an example of what the Austrian Oak is really capable of. Released: 8th May (U.S.)/ 17th July (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: A teenage girl in the Midwest becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. »

First Look At Frankenstein

12 hours ago

The story of Victor Frankenstein and his monstrous creation has being brought to the big screen quite a few times before, and now it's director Paul McGuigan's (Lucky Number Slevin) to bring a new version of Mary Shelley's classic tale to life. Told from Igor's (Daniel Radcliffe) perspective, the screenplay comes from Chronicle writer Max Landis, and Empire have the first look at Radcliffe and James McAvoy as the titular mad scientist, giving us a great look at the gothic tone of the piece. Frankenstein is a story I love in all its forms (well, most at the very least), and I find myself looking forward to McGuigan's take on the tale. Released: October 2nd »

12 hours ago

There has been a lot of movement on David Greens's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 lately (including the reveal of fan favorites Bebop and Rocksteady joining the sequel), and now producer Michael Bay has shared with us our first look at the new vehicles the Turtles will be using in their fight against evil, including a pretty faithful version of the turtle van/garbage truck and the very 66' Batman Polaris Slingshot. Released: June 3rd 2016 »

Jared Leto's Joker Fully Revealed

24 April 2015 6:09 PM, PDT

We've gotten our first full glimpse at Jared Leto's Joker from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie...and it's certainly going to divide opinions.  Director David Ayer has tweeted a pic of the clown prince of crime to celebrate the character turning 75 today, giving us a proper look at his vision for the Suicide Squad movie. Sporting short green hair, a purple glove and some comic-book type tattoos, this Joker is definitely a different take than anything we've had before. While I appreciate that they're trying to something different from what has gone before, to me this just feels off. It's too much like a biker-gang take on the character, and the ink and dental grills feel contrived. It also looks like he's going for the madness route over menacing, which may work for the movie, but the character is definitely going to be compared to Heath Ledger's work, »

Fifty Shades Sequels Release Dates

24 April 2015 1:32 AM, PDT

Cinemacon, where the studios roll out the big guns for cinema owners (and the press) was firing on all cylinders this week. Think of it like Comic-Con without the 24 hours of queuing.  Universal Pictures announced the release dates for the Two Fifty Shades Of Grey sequels. Fifty Shades Darker will arrive on February 10th 2017 and Fifty Shades Freed being will blandly climax on February 9th 2018. Oh, and to make this news even more exciting, El James' husband will be writing the screenplay for the second one. So that's just fucking wonderful. If there were ever a trilogy of movies to be known as a boner / wideon killer, these are them! And I don't care If I'm jumping the gun here. Fifty Shades is a brutally written trilogy and the movie was pure and utter tripe. But still, idiots and their money... Oh, and before you leave comments of bullshit about »

The Creepy First Trailer For M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit Is Here!

23 April 2015 3:46 PM, PDT

The first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit has arrived, and while I'm it will leave you asking the question of whether this is found footage or not (some shots look found footage, while others are definitely more traditional), there is no denying this has the makings of a very creepy horror/thriller. Ok, so I don't have the slightest clue what's going on here (but a stab could be made at a Hansel and Gretel analogy, especially with the oven scene at the end), but god dammit, I'm intrigued by the creepy and down right weird goings on. Shyamalan may have made some serious missteps in recent years, but his early movies showed such promise that you are always left waiting for him to return to that quality. It may be the first trailer, but The Visit could be just that. Released: September 11th Synopsis: Writer/director »

Jason Statham Tells Us Why He's A Real Spy In New Clip From Spy

23 April 2015 2:54 PM, PDT

Melissa McCarthy's latest team up, Spy, with her Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig may be more of the same from the actress, but she does have a great cast of straight men, and women, around her that you wouldn't necessarily peg as having comedy chops. Case in point is Jason Statham, who in the clip below plays up his hard man persona to hilarious effect. Released: June 5th Synopsis: A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster. »

The First Trailer For Black Mass Is Intense And Unsettling

23 April 2015 2:31 PM, PDT

For all those who think Johnny Depp is only good now for recycling his one off the wall, quirky routine, feast your eyes on the first trailer for Black Mass, Scott Cooper's biopic of notoriously violent gangster Whitey Bulger. It could be his eyes are so blue they're off putting. Maybe, it's the way he goes from friendly to calm and menacing in a split second. Or that we haven't him go this far into a role in a very long time. It's probably all three. I genuinely got chills from this trailer, all thanks to Mr. Depp's unnerving portrayal of the infamous Bulger. This is definitely one to watch out for. Released: 18th September (U.S.)/ 25th September (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. »

Real Life Iron-Man Pulsar

23 April 2015 2:22 PM, PDT

Thankfully, some folks have way too much time on their hands. Tony Stark, sorry, Patrick Priebe of Lazer Gadgets decided he'd embed a 3000mW blue laser into a home-made Iron Man hand and recreate the man in a tin-can's awesome pulsars and sets fire to blocks of wood and teaches an orange a lesson it'll never forget!

Kevin Feige Age Of Ultron Interview

23 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

Producer Kevin Feige is thrilled to reassemble The Avengers team and bring Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” to the big screen for the legions of fans who helped make the record-breaking Marvel’s “The Avengers” a worldwide hit.  “Making ‘The Avengers’ films is in certain ways just plain fun, especially now as we are embarking on the second one,” says Feige. “It’s exciting to get these great actors, who had a good time on the first movie and who have had their own experiences filming their solo movies, and bring them all back together. That’s half of the issue right there. With Joss Whedon’s dialogue and the way he can bring those characters to life, I could just watch The Avengers sit in a room and talk for two hours. I think a lot of people in the audience could too. But we have to do more than that, »

Scarlett Johansson Age Of Ultron Interview

23 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

When Scarlett Johansson dons Black Widow’s gear for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” she has one clear goal in mind: keeping true to her character. Johansson says, “The most important aspect of my job as an actor, who’s been carrying this character from ‘Iron Man’ to ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ is to keep consistency with the character’s arc and have the character’s evolution be one that is cohesive. You want to feel like the character is growing as opposed to just staying the same.” Although Johansson worked with different directors over the course of inhabiting the Natasha Romanoff character, it was her first meeting with director/writer Joss Whedon that allowed her to explore her character’s past. “In my first meeting with Joss, I had the chance to talk about Natasha’s backstory and her sordid past,” recalls Johansson, “and »

Elizabeth Olsen Age Of Ultron Interview

23 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT

When Elizabeth Olsen signed on to play Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” she was unfamiliar with the comic-book character, so she knew immediately that she would need to do some research. “I asked Marvel to compile a bible of the comic books that were centered on her,” says Olsen. “It’s just unbelievable the amount of material there is to draw from. All of the stories that are already in the comic books are so interesting. I like the journey that she goes on and how she develops her skills and how much power she has without realizing it. She is connected to the universe and has the ability to manipulate minds. Her powers create a huge plot point in this film.” Once she read the screenplay, Olsen was totally drawn into The Avengers’ world. “There are so many things to play with in this script »

Jada Pinkett Smith Takes Over New Magic Mike Xxl Character Poster

23 April 2015 5:01 AM, PDT

Released: July 1st (U.S.)/July 3rd (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, “Magic Mike Xxl” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways. »

Robert Downey Jr. Age Of Ultron Interview

23 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT

Fan-favorite Robert Downey Jr. reprises his seminal portrayal of Tony Stark/Iron Man for the fifth time in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” In Marvel’s “The Avengers” Tony Stark struggled to become a team player and in “Iron Man 3” audiences saw him transcend his dependency on the tech that was keeping him alive.  So where does he go now? To Robert Downey Jr. the answer is simple: “There’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron.” Right from the beginning of the project, Downey Jr. found a lot to like in writer/director Joss Whedon’s compelling screenplay. “To me it’s further developing the complexities of the »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Age Of Ultron Interview

23 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT

British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson makes his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he takes on the role of Quicksilver in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Taylor-Johnson says that the offer was “hugely exciting” and comments, “First, I was flattered to be thought of and then second that Joss Whedon approached me for it and thought I could be another addition to the story. It was very overwhelming and surreal all at the same time. It was like being asked to be on a big league team. It was very cool.” Taylor-Johnson admits that it was somewhat unnerving stepping on set for the first time with all of The Avengers, who had already done three or four films. “They’re very comfortable with the way that they want to portray their characters and comfortable with each other,” says the actor. “So, it felt kind of daunting, but that was »

Phil Lord And Chris Miller Take On An Animated Spider-Man Feature

23 April 2015 2:19 AM, PDT

While he has five live action movies under his belt, with more on their way, Spider-Man has always thrived in animated form with numerous small screen cartoons dating back to the 1960's, reaching a high point in the 90's with the highly popular, arc heavy Spider-Man. Now, announced at CinemaCon by Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, an animated web slinger is coming to the big screen, independent of the live action, masterminded by The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street's Phil Lord and Chris Miller. This is fantastic news as Lord and Miller have shown a great level of fun and inventiveness in their animated work, especially Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and are the perfect pair to tackle ol' web head. They excel at the irreverent, and you don't get more irreverent that Spider-Man and his wise cracking ways. The movie is expected to come our way July »

M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit Drops Two Really Creepy Posters

23 April 2015 1:43 AM, PDT

A trailer will be coming our way tomorrow for M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit, but our first look comes in the form of two posters which carry with them a really spooky vibe for the tale of two children who discover their grand parents are involved in something deeply disturbing while on a week long visit at their remote farm. Shyamalan may have had the Worst track record lately, but it seems with every movie he attaches his name to my expectations are reset, based on the promise and quality of his earlier work, The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable especially. On top of that, this is a Blumhouse production, who've delivered some great horror movie in the last couple of years, including Sinister and The Purge. Of course, we'll have to wait till the trailer before forming a solid opinion, but I do find myself quietly looking forward to this one. »
