Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

Robert Downey Jr. Hypes New 'Spider-Man'

16 April 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Apparently far more engaged in this interview than he was in the one I covered two days ago, Robert Downey Jr. opened up a bit more about Spider-Man. Why? Well, unless you've been living under a rock, you should know that Sony and Marvel have reached an agreement where a new take on Spidey will be shared by both studios- which will finally allow ol' web head to make his present felt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Along with that news came our report that Downey Jr's Tony Stark/Iron Man was going to make a meaningful appearance in the new Spider-Man reboot. 

So, naturally, as he goes around doing press for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Rdj has been fielding a ton of questions about Spider-Man. This time around, the actor had this to say when asked what it will mean to have Spider-Man around:

Iff Panama: Distributors Optimistic for Central America and the Caribbean

15 April 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Reflecting just how far Iff Panama has come in four years, the festival’s closing film, “Whiplash,” marks the first time one of the major studios has chosen to use the festival as a launch platform for a release. The company in question is 20th Century Fox Central America, which handles Sony Pictures in the region.

The general manager of 20th Century Fox Central America, Renato d’Angelo, was one of an all-star cast assembled by the festival to discuss distribution in Central America and the Caribbean with filmmakers and festival guests.

Other panelists included Elba McAllister, co-founder of Colombia’s Cineplex; Jose Pepe Victoria, general manager of Vista Entertainment, which controls the Central American and Caribbean distribution rights to Walt Disney’s theatrical division; Luis Carcheri of Costa Rica’s Romaly Distribution, which in Costa Rice represents Paramount, Universal, Walt Disney, Cineplex Colombia, Ablo, Sun Productions and Weisner; and Miguel Joseph, »

Iff Panama: Central America on the Right Track for Growth

11 April 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Panama – As the leaders of the Americas, including U.S. President Barack Obama, meet in Panama City for the seventh Summit of the Americas, they will be all too aware that it is the economies of Central America that are leading growth in the region. And, according to a report published on Tuesday (April 7) by the United Nation’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, Central America will continue to lead the way in 2015, with Panama, with an expected 6% increase in Gdp over the coming year, at the forefront.

Central America, which consists of seven countries (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama), is also on the right track for growth in its theatrical movie market, according to Luis Vargas, managing director of Rentrak for Mexico, Caribbean, Central America, Colombia and Venezuela.

“Central America is a region that you can consider as one country, one big country, »

Harry Potter Spinoff May Star Eddie Redmayne

10 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Best Actor Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) is in talks to star as Newt Scamander in Warner Bros.'s highly-anticipated Harry Potter spinoff series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Harry Potter scribe J.K. Rowling will make her screenwriting debut for the franchise, which is expected to span at least three films. Per Variety, no official offer has gone out, and Warner is also looking at Nicholas Hoult, but Redmayne's the frontrunner for the part and it's his to lose. Scamander is a "magiczoologist" who finds and studies magical creatures. In addition to Scamander, there are four other main roles that have yet to be cast - two American girls and two American boys. The films will take place seventy years before Harry Potter, and Rowling has described the new trilogy as an expansion of her wizarding universe that is not intended to be a prequel or »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Box Office Tracking at $200 Million; Can It Beat Avengers?

9 April 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1st, it’s going to be big at the box office. And by big, I mean massive. Herculean, even. This isn’t a surprise to anyone paying attention, since Age of Ultron is the sequel to the film that holds the record for the highest grossing opening weekend of all time. Moreover, Marvel Studios has been on a roll as of late, with its recent string of films all opening to over $85 million. But the question now is, can Avengers: Age of Ultron surpass The Avengers’ $207.4 million opening weekend? Per THR, pre-release tracking currently has Avengers: Age of Ultron ahead of The Avengers in nearly all categories, though it is officially projecting an opening weekend between $190-$200 million. It’s hard for sequels to surpass the opening weekends of their predecessors when the first films broke out huge. Spider-Man 2 opened nearly $20 million under Spider-Man, »

Fast & Furious 7 dominates, Byomkesh Bakshy! is decent!

4 April 2015 12:27 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

This is a rare week where a Hollywood venture, Fast and Furious 7, dominated the box-office. In fact the film (which released on Thursday) is on a record breaking run netting nearly 12 crore (including dubbed versions), shattering the records of all earlier Hollywood ventures, including Spiderman 2.

Starring Vin Diesel (along with our very own Ali Fazal) Fast and Furious 7 is expected to continue its record breaking run as the four-day extended weekend appears to be huge.

Meanwhile, the Dibakar Banerjee directed Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, managed to hold its own (more so at the multiplexes), despite a stiff resistance from Fast and Furious 7. As per the initial reports the Friday release has managed a 40 percent opening day occupancy at the city multiplexes and is expected to end up with a decent weekend haul. The first day, as per early estimates looks to be in the 5 crore plus range. »

Hugh Jackman Says 'Wolverine 3' Will Be His Last Turn As The Mutant Character

28 March 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s always a weird disconnect with age in Hollywood. You hear actors often suggesting, “Oh, I’m getting too old for this part,” while actors routinely play parts where their character is much, much younger. Andrew Garfield was 28 when he started playing the teenage Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and yet when the “Spectacular Spider-Man” reboot was announced, much of the news was about how the character was going younger and going back to high school (he had barely left, Parker graduated in ‘”Amazing Spider-Man 2”). Robert Downey Jr. has said much the same, that he’s getting too old to play Tony Stark now that he’s going on 50 (next year). But 50 is the new 40, and Rdj has signed on for even more Marvel films, including a major role in “Captain America: Civil War,” so we’ll be seeing him as Iron Man until at least “Avengers: »

5 Great Retro Game Movie Tie-Ins

17 March 2015 7:03 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

These days, movie tie-in games have developed a poor reputation, and seen mostly as quick and dirty cash-ins than enjoyable gaming experiences.  That wasn’t always the case, however, and back in the day, gamers were treated to some amazing games based on their favorite films.  Today, I’m looking back at some of the most enjoyable retro games that happen to be movie tie-ins! 

 

Aladdin & The Lion King

Sure, these are two separate games, but frankly, they’re worth listing together as they’re both from Disney (based on movies of the same name) and feature some rather impressive platforming.  Frankly speaking, the accolades I’m about to mention are going to be the same for both of these games, so rather than copy and paste, I’m just going to list them together.  

The truth is that Disney could have Easily cranked these games out and made tons of money. »

14 March 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Patton Oswalt is a hardcore nerd, which is a big part of why we love him. Remember that epic improvised Star Wars filibuster? You probably know that he.s a big fan of comic book movies, and if you.ve been fretting over which big screen adaptation the comedian thinks is the best, today is your lucky day. While Patton Oswalt.s personal favorite superhero movie is Sam Raimi.s 2004 Spider-Man 2, he thinks that the best comic book movie of all time is American Splendor. Talking to Screen Junkies, Oswalt answered tons of awesomely geeky fan questions. When someone asked about the best comic book movie of this century, while Spider-Man 2 may be at the top of the superhero heap, he says American Splendor, the 2003 adaptation of underground comic artist Harvey Pekar.s life and work, is the best comic book movie of this century in a larger, »

The Dark Knight Tops Empire's Greatest Superhero Movies List

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though technically it doesn't actually feature any super-powered characters, many consider Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight to be the best superhero/comic book movie ever made, and Empire's most recent list of the 30 greatest cape-flicks would seem to confirm as much. The fact that the 2008 Batman epic came in at #1 on their publicly voted poll is a testament to how highly it's still regarded. Apparently it won by a fairly wide margin, but chasing it for the top spot at #2 was Bryan Singer's X-Men 2/X2, followed by Superman II at #3, Marvel's The Avengers at #4 and the first Superman at #5. Some of the rest of the movies in the top 10 are bound to stir up plenty of debate! We have Spider-Man 2 at #6, Batman Returns at #7, Unbreakable at #8, Watchmen at #9, and one of the most recent on the list, Guardians of the »

Rumour: Spider-Man could feature in Avengers: Age of Ultron

26 February 2015 4:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, that didn’t take long.

As soon as it was announced that Spider-Man had joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to a cross-pollination deal between Sony and Marvel, speculation was abound that there would be rumours of an appearance of the wall crawler in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

As we said, it didn’t take long.

According to speculation from various websites, the poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was released on Tuesday) reveals that Danny Elfman has provided “extra music” for the film. Now the speculation goes that Danny Elfman provided music for Ang Lee’s Hulk back in 2003, but more famously wrote the score for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 for Sony. Could this mean he has been hired to bring back his Spider-Man score for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Check out the poster below:

Of course, this is all rumour and speculation. »

A new alternative poster has been released for touching drama Love is Strange, which you can check out below. You can also read our review of the movie here.

A darling of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Love Is Strange has had some very strong reviews and word-of-mouth have left many waiting patiently for the film to be released.

The Downside of The Avengers adopting Spider-Man

11 February 2015 2:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pim Razenberg on the downside of The Avengers adopting Spider-Man

So, there we have it! Monday this week Marvel announced their new partnership with Sony, after striking a deal to cement The Amazing Spider-Man’s future firmly within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The news was welcomed by many of the web-slinger’s fans, who were left disappointed by Sony’s previous Spider-Man instalments.

Personally, I’m not very thrilled.

Every time there was talk of “negotiation” between Marvel Studios and Sony it gave me the awkward feeling that something just didn’t fit. Marvel has been on a winning streak for years producing entertaining, yet highly qualitative superhero movies, while the Spider-Man franchise has been in a downwards spiral ever since the series’ highlight, Spider-Man 2. Not once, but twice Sony killed its own cash cow by oversaturating their Spider-Man movies with an unbalanced amount of characters and diluting the characters that actually mattered. »
