After making three films on a very large scale (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Cowboys & Aliens), director Jon Favreau opted to go much smaller on his most recent feature, Chef. The result is a character-centric dramedy about a man who starts up a food truck business in the hopes of reconnecting with his family and getting back in touch with his artistic freedom. In conjunction of Chef’s release on Blu-ray and DVD today, we here at Collider have been provided with four exclusive Chef food truck graphics that bring the punnery to Favreau’s filmography. Stop by the Elf Eatery for some breakfast food, or hit up the Swingers truck for cocktails and wings. Take a look at the Chef food truck graphics after the jump, and click here to buy the film on Blu-ray. [gallery link="file" columns="1" ids="362974,362975,362976,362977"]

Before Marvel fans will see Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark again in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," they'll get to spend some time with his dad, Howard Stark. Dominic Cooper has signed on to reprise his role as the the inventor father of Tony "Iron Man" Stark in ABC's upcoming "Agent Carter," starring Hayley Atwell. The news was announced on Marvel's official site. Cooper first played the senior Stark in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," and reprised the role in 2013's "Marvel One Shot: Agent Carter." As seen in "The First Avenger," Stark was involved with the supersoldier project which created Captain America, and later went on to play a key role in the founding of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Carter" takes place just after WWII. Atwell recently popped up in a flashback scene on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," so it's not out of the question for »

The Movie on its own merit…
There are some experiences that, while not life changing, are life reaffirming and leave an impression not easily forgotten. Arguably, the best kinds of these experiences are the ones that are fully unexpected. Being caught off guard, leaving the unmistakable mark of joy stretched across one’s face. Moments that make us smile, spontaneously. I am reminded of the very first time I had an authentic Cuban sandwich, which happened to be off a food truck in Austin, Texas. Watching Jon Favreau’s newest film, Chef, is the cinematic equivalent.
From the filmmaker who Made (2001) an independent first impression, immortalized Will Ferrell as a holiday staple in Elf (2003) and realized the Iron Man trilogy on the big screen, its refreshing to see writer and director Jon Favreau returning to his smaller, indie roots with Chef. Favreau also stars as the film’s central character, »

Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm).
“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”
There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

Co-written by Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, the film harkens to the noirs of times past. Bomer will join Ryan Gosling, who plays Holland March, a troubled private detective in 1970s Los Angeles. When March hooks up with tough guy Jackson Healy – played by Russell Crowe – the pair unite to track down a missing girl and solve the seemingly-unrelated death of a porn star. Somewhere in the mix, Bomer’s character makes an appearance. As yet, we’re not sure who he’s slated to play.
We do know that as well as Gosling and Crowe, he’ll be joining The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley who’s set to take the female lead. Currently back on set for Magic Mike Xxl, Bomer will start shooting after principal »

As if you needed another reason to head to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, we have reports that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer will play ahead of it in theaters. If you are Russian, you will definitely get to see the Avengers teaser, as Warner Bros. Russia has announced that it will be attached to the space odyssey in that country. It makes sense for that to be true here in the States as well, given that Interstellar’s November 7 (U.S.) release date puts it almost exactly six months ahead of Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 (also U.S.) release date. That’s about when the Marvel PR machine starts rolling things out. They also usually put their trailers online a few days before theatrical release, so come back at the end of October/beginning of November to watch it here.

"...when 'Tony Stark' tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including 'Iron Man', 'Captain America', 'Thor', 'The Incredible Hulk', 'Black Widow' and 'Hawkeye', are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
"As the villainous 'Ultron' emerges, it is up to 'The Avengers' to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

"...with 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' destroyed and the 'Avengers' needing a break from stopping threats, 'Tony Stark' creates 'Ultron', a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence, who can assess threats and control Stark's 'Iron Legion'.
"However, things quickly go awry when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth..."
She is the daughter of 'Magneto', twin sister of Quicksilver and paternal half-sister of 'Polaris'. »

Marvel Studios has turned unknown characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy into major stars, but we still don’t have a Black Widow movie. It’s a touchy subject, considering Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has told the fans a Widow film is in development for sometime. They have one of the most popular actresses in […]

Robert Downey Jr. suffered the loss of his mother this week and he subsequently decided that a "generic" obituary wouldn't do.
According to her son, Elsie Ann Downey died Monday night at the age of 80, and today the actor took to Facebook to pen a touching.and yet signaturely quirky.tribute to the woman to whom he owes so very much.
"As promotion for The Judge kicks off this weekend, I feel the need to run the risk of over sharing..." Downey's essay began as he delved into describing different stages of his mom's life, from her birth as Elsie Ann Ford near Pittsburgh in April 1934, through her short but turbulent marriage to Downy's father, filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., her unremarkable acting career and her struggle with addiction, and onto how she helped him battle his own demons when he was at his worst, how she bonded with her grandchildren »
Denzel Washington may exert the purest form of star power in movies today.
His name above the title guarantees a film will open to solid numbers, something few actors in Hollywood can credibly claim to deliver. He did it again last weekend, when his gritty R-rated thriller “The Equalizer” bowed to a sterling $35 million.
“He’s a name people trust,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “He is a brand. Really, it’s no different than Marvel or Pixar. People hear Denzel Washington and they show up.”
Over three decades in the film business, Washington’s films have generated north of $3 billion at the global box office, but he’s put up those lofty numbers in a unique way. At the age of 59, he is launching his first franchise with “The Equalizer,” an adaptation of the CBS action series that Sony, the studio behind the film, »

Robert Downey Jr.'s mother passed away on Monday, the actor has revealed.
The "Iron Man" star shared the sad news on his Facebook page, in a lengthy letter that celebrated his mom's life.
"My mom passed away early this week....I wanna say something about her life, and a generic 'obit' won't suffice... Elsie Ann Ford was born outside Pittsburgh in April of 1934, daughter of an engineer who worked on the Panama Canal, and mother who ran a jewelry shop in Huntingdon, where they settled....a bona fide 'Daughter Of The American Revolution,'" he wrote.

Marvel and the family of Jack Kirby have settled their long-running copyright dispute over characters he created for the studio. This comes just days before the matter was to be taken to the Supreme Court.
This is their joint statement:
"Marvel and the family of Jack Kirby have amicably resolved their legal disputes, and are looking forward to advancing their shared goal of honoring Mr. Jack Kirby's significant role in Marvel's history."
Jack Kirby was a 'work-for-hire' who helped Stan Lee create some of the biggest characters in the Marvel universe, most of which are now either raking in big bucks on the big screen or soon headed there. He held no rights to such famous works as Captain America, The Fantastic Four, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the original X-Men and a number of other characters both well-known and obscure.
The settlement between Disney, Marvel and the Jack Kirby estate is confidential. »
In issue 225 of Total Film magazine, Robert Downey Jr. tells us about swapping his Iron Man suit for a tailored two-piece in prestige drama The Judge. Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad - Downey Jr. reveals that the hard-hitting film is a dream project for him. "This is the kind of movie I grew up wanting to do," he says. "The role's great but it's more what kind of movie it is: the script was really good, smart but not 'clever' or schmaltzy. Just reading through the script with the cast... I've never seen...

Yup, you read that right—Gwyneth Paltrow is actually 42 today! It's no secret that the Goop gal is an obvious style icon with impeccable taste, and the birthday girl's red carpet looks are no exception. Blending sophistication and glamour into one neat package, the Iron Man actress turned heads in a soft blush Prada gown with a T-back bow at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. The glossy blonde wowed again earlier in the year at the Academy Awards, wearing a sleek metallic Calvin Klein creation. Working a bit more color into her usual neutral palette, Paltrow picked a frothy peach Zac Posen creation for the 2007 Oscars. Then switching it up entirely, the actress stepped out in a sparkling emerald Ellie Saab »

Rumour has is that Robert Downey Jr. will say goodbye to the character of Tony Stark after just two more movies, the first of which is next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, followed by a third Avengers film expected in 2017/2018. Many cannot imagine anyone else taking over the iconic role. However, President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has suggested that the role will eventually be recast and this will be a continual process as seen with long-standing franchies such as James Bond and Doctor Who. But Kevin Feige has also expressed the possibility of introducing new Avengers and phasing old ones out, giving characters a definitive ending and avoiding the need to recast.
Despite his immense popularity as Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. recently stated in an interview that as an actor playing a character, »

As of today, Marvel Comics and the estate of Jack Kirby are friends again. Or, at least, they’re not fighting out a dispute in court. Kirby was the creator or co-creator of many of Marvel’s biggest characters including The Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and the original X-Men. But his work for Marvel was under a work-for-hire […]

While debating the necessity of a Justice League Dark movie with Shannon Barnson from the "Geek Show Pod Cast", I brought up that Justice League Dark could/would be DC's Guardians of the Galaxy. "They have to have their Iron Man first." He replied. He is absolutely right. DC's Movie Studio has yet to find their Iron Man. Let's take a look at the recipe that made the Iron Man movie such a huge success. Add 1 second rate character: Before 2008 very few people knew that Iron Man was more than a triathlon in Hawaii or a Black Sabbath song. Though an important component in the comicbook version of Avengers, many comicbook fans doubted the character’s ability to hold his own in a full length feature film. 1 Cupof a relatively unknown actor (at the time): It's difficult to think of Hollywood’s leading man and now Marvel's poster boy, »
