13 Mind-Blowing Moments From the First 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Trailer

23 October 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From the sinister Ultron to the amazing Hulkbuster armor, this 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' trailer is incredibly revealing.

In a move that is likely to set a bad precedent, Marvel Studios released their extended teaser/trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron a whole week earlier than planned after a low-res version leaked online early Wednesday.

According to Deadline, acting quickly, and wanting their fans to get a good, solid look at the film's massive explosions, Marvel released this incredibly exciting sneak peek.

Video: Robert Downey Jr. and Avengers Cast Unleash Age of Ultron Details and Big Laughs at Comic-Con

Oh wow, this movie looks amazing. Dark, somewhat bleak and a little nihilistic, but amazing.

In this harrowing sequel, Sheild has been destroyed and the Avengers are getting worn out from all this "constantly saving the whole world" business. So, in a stroke of genius, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) restarts an old peacekeeping intuitive »

Weta Digital: Peter Jackson’s VFX Company is About ‘Immersive Filmmaking’

22 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Weta Digital is observing its 20th anniversary this year, but the celebration is low-key, because the team is too busy to rest on its laurels.

Top priorities include “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies,” the culmination of 17 years and six films in the J.R.R. Tolkien canon; “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” slated to bow in 2016; and the upcoming “Avatar” films. Then on to other projects, both large and small.

Peter Jackson has five companies in Wellington, but Weta Digital is the best known, thanks to its visual-effects breakthrough creations such as Gollum, Caesar, Smaug and the Na’vis.

Joe Letteri, the company’s director and senior visual effects supervisor, says, “If we can shoot it live-action, great. If not, we’ll do it digitally.” (Letteri is in the above photo, flanked by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.)

The company’s executive producer David Conley adds that Weta Digital is unlike traditional visual-effects houses. »

'Birdman' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Michael Keaton's Big Comeback Movie

17 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton is perhaps best known for playing Batman in a pair of Tim Burton-directed superhero movies, whose visionary tone has set the standard for the genre until this day. And now he's stepping back into the superhero suit (sort of) for "Birdman," the latest film from "Babel" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

"Birdman" tells the story of an actor who has been immortalized in a series of superhero movies (played, obviously, by Keaton), who decides to attempt a comeback by writing, directing, and starring in a stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story. Of course, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. (Andrea Riseborough, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone co-star.)

So why is everyone talking about this relatively little movie that could conceivably do very big things? Read on to find out!

Open Grave DVD Review

17 October 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Gonzalo López-Gallego

Cast: Sharlto Copley, Thomas Kretschmann, Joseph Morgan, Erin Richards

Certificate: 15

District 9’s Sharlto Copley awakens in a muddy pit full of corpses. How did he get there? He can’t remember. who is he? He can’t remember that either. After wrenching himself out of the pit he meets a group of people seemingly in the same predicament as him but can he trust them, and should they trust him?

The group are all suffering from memory loss, though pieces start to come back bit by bit. As snapshots of their lives start to flashback they find they all have a hidden skill. The cast are an electric mix of personalities and nationalities. Kretschmann will be familiar to many as the Captain of the ship in King Kong and plays a distrusting, potentially violent, man. Fans of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals will be pleased »

Tom Hiddleston Cast In 'Skull Island'

24 September 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Legendary Pictures has confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will star in "Skull Island," a film exploring the mythical home of King Kong, with Jordan Vogt-Roberts assuming the role of director. It's unclear what character Hiddleston will portray, but he will almost definitely be the film's lead. Legendary has not revealed any more plot information, nor whether it will have any connection to the original 1933 "King Kong" or Peter Jackson's 2005 remake. "Skull Island" was originally announced during Legendary's panel at Comic-Con International in July, with a very short teaser trailer and few other details. The production company did say that the movie will "take audiences deeper inside the rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions," citing 2013's "Pacific »

Huston to Follow Heston as Ben-Hur Casting Announced

17 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jack Huston cast in 'Ben-Hur' remake? 'Boardwalk Empire' actor to follow in the footsteps of Ramon Novarro and Charlton Heston Jack Huston, best known for playing World War I veteran-turned-bootlegger-cum-assassin Richard Harrow in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, may star in the latest Ben-Hur "remake," to be jointly produced by Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. I have "remake" between quotes because officially this fourth big-screen version of the semi-biblical epic (more on that below) isn't an actual remake of either the multiple Oscar-winning 1959 Ben-Hur or its 1925 predecessor, but a direct adaptation of former Civil War general Lew Wallace's 1880 bestselling novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, which happens to be conveniently in the public domain. Timur Bekmambetov, whose credits include the Angelina Jolie-James McAvoy thriller Wanted and the supernatural cult classic Night Watch, has been attached as director of what is in fact A Tale »
