“I didn’t know our government had such good taste in secretaries.”
That's definitely something that you wouldn't want to say to Agent Peggy Carter, especially after seeing her kick some ass in this new action-packed spot for Marvel's Agent Carter. I'm really excited for this series, and I think it's so cool that Marvel managed to get the same actors from Captain America: The First Avenger to star in it.
The series stars Hayley Atwell, Chad Michael Murray as Ssr Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Ssr Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, and Shea Whigham as Ssr Chief Roger Dooley. The series was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who are also currently writing Captain America: Civil War.

Marvel’s Agent Carter is heading your way on January 6th, and you can finally get a decent look at the show.
The next venture in the Marvel television universe is a different game from what people might expect, and has little in common with the film and television efforts people are used to seeing. That’s hard to call good or bad at first glance, but it’s certainly an interesting move. Adding to the confusion, my best guess is that if you’re a fan of Marvel’s Agents of Shield, that doesn’t necessarily translate into being a fan of this one. That means recommendations are a confused affair.
As much as I never took to Marvel’s AoS, especially considering that it is a show that would have been pulled after two months at most if not for the fact that it is a marketing vehicle »

Over the past decade, Lee Smith has worked alongside Christopher Nolan as the director has climbed to the highest peaks of Hollywood, with "Batman Begins," "The Prestige," "The Dark Knight," "Inception," and "The Dark Knight Rises." I recently had the chance to speak to Smith about his approach to editing, Nolan, their relationship, and their change of pace (both literal and figurative) that is "Interstellar." Coming from an Australian family deeply involved in the film industry, Smith started his career working in sound. In the editing realm, he cut his teeth on genre films like "The Howling III" and "RoboCop 2" and soon began a collaboration with Peter Weir on titles such as "Fearless," "The Truman Show" and "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" (for which he earned his first Oscar nomination). While working in Hollywood on "Master," Smith was first asked if he was interested in meeting Nolan, »

This summer’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, was released on Digital HD today and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Dec. 2. 20th Century Fox is pushing its cast, including Andy Serkis for his motion-capture performance as ape leader Caesar, for supporting actor nominations, but the film also has a serious shot at a nomination for visual effects. Rise of the Planet of the Apes garnered a nomination for visual effects at the 84th Academy Awards. Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which opened Nov. 5, is also a visual effects contender, but it is also a cinematography contender.
The nominees are chosen by specific branches of the Academy based on expertise, but voting is done by all the members. Most of the films nominated for cinematography differ from those nominated for visual effects. »

Want to know what's in contention for Best Picture? Look to Best Film Editing. No category except Best Director has as much overlap with the top category as of late. Is that how things will turn out this year? Let's take a look… That aside, the branch is also fond of suspense films, action films and war films. Musicals (if they are big players overall) and films with non-linear narratives tend to have a leg up, too. We don't tend to see film editors racking up nods like we do other disciplines, though. Michael Kahn is the all-time nominations leader with eight. And don't get me wrong – that's a lot of nominations. But compared to "all time" figures in every other crafts category, it's on the low side. So with that out of the way, what can we bank on this year? William Goldenberg won this category two years ago »

ABC has released an extended sneak peek at Marvel's Agent Carter. It features a scene between Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), and it's good to see Howard again! It also introduces us to Stark's butler, Jarvis, who is played by James D'Arcy. The clip aired during Marvel's little self-promoting documentary, Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp To Pop! So far everything I've seen from the show looks great, and I think this even has potential to be better than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we'll just have to wait and see. You can find the full, detailed synopsis of the series under the clip.
The series will premiere sometime in early 2015.

It seems that these days, anything to do with superheroes or comic book adaptations is always ‘highly anticipated.’ With built-in, deeply loyal fanbases, DC and Marvel in particular tend to have audiences in the palms of their mighty corporate hands when it comes to new projects. While DC has staged a multi-pronged assault on TV viewers – with Gotham, Constantine and The Flash all launching this year, Marvel has been teasing its ace-in-the-hole, Agent Carter.
Heading to the small screen in early 2015, Agent Carter is the spinoff TV show for the supporting character from Captain America: The First Avenger. It will see fan favourite Hayley Atwell reprise her role, and Marvel recently released a teaser for the series, reminding us that when it comes to protecting the world, the best man for the job is actually a woman:

"Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman."
Marvel has released the first TV spot for their highly anticipated new series, Agent Carter. The 15 second promo offers us our first look at footage from the series, and even though it's short, it gets the point across. The spot features a little taste of Hayley Atwell in the title role getting ready for some action.
As much as I enjoy Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I think Agent Carter has potential to be an even better series, so I'm looking forward to seeing more! Below you'll find a detailed synopsis for the series along with the promo trailer. If you missed it last night, make sure to check it out!

Marvel has released a full detailed synopsis for their upcoming new series Agent Carter. The show doesn't premiere until 2015, and up until this point we really didn't know what exactly it would entail other than it would include the return of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) from Captain America: The First Avengers, as well as add a some new characters. The synopsis lays out what kind of secret missions Carter will be doing for Stark in the the series.
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognized as being as »

Marvel has released a lengthy new synopsis for their upcoming Agent Carter TV series, which is set to premiere this winter in early 2015 while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on break. The show stars Hayley Atwell, who reprises her role as the titular SS agent who was seen in Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and her own eponymous Marvel One Shot short film.

ABC has released the official synopsis for the upcoming action drama Marvel's Agent Carter, which will debut in 2015. The press release reveals what we'll see in the series, along with the cast and crew involved.
Marvel's Agent Carter is ABC's second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel, inspired by the feature films Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger and Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger," Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
Cling. Clang. Crash. Welcome to the category of Best Sound Editing, which awards the creation and integration of artificial sounds into a movie's soundtrack. This distinguishes this category from Best Sound Mixing, which awards the mixing of the film's overall soundtrack. Due to the emphasis on creating artificial sounds, action films and war films tend to do particularly well here. The branch is also not afraid to give a film a standalone nomination (this decade, that has included "All is Lost," "Tron: Legacy," "Drive" and "Unstoppable"). In the not-too-distant past, animated films were also practically annual staples, which is unsurprising given the need to manifest everything you hear in such productions. The sound branch has its favorite contenders who regularly return. Names like Richard Hymns and Wylie Stateman immediately jump to mind. This is likely the case to a greater extent in Sound Editing than Sound Mixing. But every year also sees new nominees. »

Michael Andreen has been named Svp Production at Fox International Prods. and will assume his new role on August 1, Sanford Panitch, Fip’s president said today. Fip has a strong local-language business and Andreen’s hire likely indicates a ramping up in that area. It’s also a homecoming for Andreen at Fox. He previously served in various creative production capacities, working on titles including Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World and The Day After Tomorrow. He has also held senior positions at Walt Disney Studios, where he developed strategy and pursued operational implementation of the company’s international initiative to extend […] »
The Weinstein Company has entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire The Water Diviner, the directorial debut of actor Russell Crowe. The actor/filmmaker presented 12 minutes worth of footage to potential distributors at the Cannes Film Festival earlier today, with Deadline reporting that most distributors were impressed with what he has done.
TWC has reportedly offered $4 million to acquire the distribution rights, which includes a commitment to a wide release. Russell Crowe previously worked with The Weinstein Company on the 2003 nautical adventure Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World.
The actor/director stars as Connor, an Australian farmer who journeys to Turkey in 1919, to find the bodies of his three sons who died in battle during World War I. The supporting cast includes Jai Courtney, Olga Kurylenko, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Cem Yilmaz and Damon Herriman.

Bad titles aren’t a big deal. You can have a bad title and still be a great movie. Just look at Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Or The Shawshank Redemption, which appears on as many lists of the worst titles of all time as lists of the greatest movies of all time. Typically, though, a bad title is assigned to a bad movie. It’s not really a coincidence, either, as a bad title is a good sign of a bad production overall. It’s a first impression of a total failure on all creative levels. So, when we see a title like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there’s good reason to think there’s trouble brewing with that movie. It’s not just worthy of snark and parody (although I am proud of my “Dawn of Buford T. Justice” gag). Titles of franchise installments have been getting out of »

J.A.R.V.I.S. is getting a reboot in the next Avengers film, being upgraded from computer servant to android superhero. Paul Bettany talked to Jimmy Kimmel about his new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Vision.
Paul Bettany is a talented actor, having been in Oscar-nominated films like A Beautiful Mind and Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World. He’s never been an A-Lister, but his role in the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron could help raise his profile. In previous Marvel films, he’s provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark’s helpful computer AI. In the sequel, he’ll be playing the Vision, an android super hero who has been a member of the Avengers in the comics since 1968. The character was a revised version of earlier hero created by the legendary Jack Kirby in 1940, also called the Vision. »

After voicing a key character in four Marvel Studios movies to date, Paul Bettany is finally going to be appearing in one of them as well. The British star of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Priest, Legion and the upcoming Transcendence plays the artificially intelligent companion known as J.A.R.V.I.S. to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in all three Iron Man films and The Avengers, but in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, he’s playing two characters.
Bettany was spotted two months ago leaving one of Marvel’s production offices where it was reported he underwent makeup and costume tests for the role of Vision – another Avengers character from the comics. It was a surprise bit of casting and something fans didn’t see coming after all of the new character buzz had been focused on newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet »

Movies for me generally fall into one of two categories: 1) movies I watch and 2) Biblical movies. "The Ten Commandments"? I'm sorry, but isn't that like four hours long? "The Passion of the Christ"? Oh yes, let me please subject myself to horrifying acts of torture porn for two whole hours."The Prince of Egypt"? I stopped watching Disney animated musicals right around the age of nine, when my heart died. So no, I probably won't be breaking the mold by checking out "Noah," Darren Aronofsky's big-budget take on the Biblical flood that looks a little too much like a remake of ""Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" for my liking. But hey, you know who else hasn't seen the movie? The catty Stepford Wives on Fox News who are now criticizing it for not being accurate enough. And who better than Jon Stewart to point this out, »
