FilmDistrict has released a batch of new images from the upcoming revenge film Dead Man Down. We recently caught a look at the film’s first trailer, and the footage promises a rather intense thriller led by Colin Farrell and Noomie Rapace. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev (the Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Farrell stars as Victor, a right-hand-man for a New York crime lord who seeks revenge against his boss following the death of his wife and daughter. When a victim (Rapace) blackmails Victor into getting some revenge of her own against the crime lord, the two get caught up in the fallout. In addition to the release of these new images, FilmDistrict has announced that another trailer for the pic will be released on January 2nd, so check back here on Collider on Wednesday to take another gander at the film. Hit the jump to check out the new images. »

"While "The Avengers" posed many visual efffects challenges, one of the larger challenges was pulling together the "tie-in" shot during the third act of the film. Rather than frames, this single shot is measured in minutes on screen and is one of the longest effects shots in the film. It incorporates both practical special effects and extensive digital visual effects by Ilm. The New York City environment that serves as the setting for this shot (and virtaully the entire alien invasion) is computer generated by the visual effects team at Ilm." The Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) is a shared film universe consisting of superhero film adaptations based on characters and concepts from Marvel Comics. Phase I of the McY saw Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America: The First Avenger share themes, items and concepts before culminating in 2012's The Avengers. A risky endeavor, the »
Pain and Gain marks Michael Bay’s first film outside of the Transformers franchise since it began back in 2007, and with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson leading the cast, it is an absolute must-see next year.

“From acclaimed director Michael Bay comes “Pain & Gain,” a new action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie. Based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong.”

It’s been nine years since the last Lord of the Rings installment hit theaters but this Friday, December 14th we can finally return to Middle Earth with the debut of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The film, directed by Peter Jackson, is the first part of trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth sixty years before The Lord of the Rings which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome Dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard, Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo »

Richard Armitage’s career has been going from strength to strength and it’s no wonder that Director Peter Jackson cast the up and coming British actor for the role of Thorin (which we find out means ‘a darer’ in Elvish) in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first of three movies in this latest franchise. We’ve recently seen Armitage in Captain America: The First Avenger but Brits will know him well from TV series Spooks and Robin Hood where he plays Lucas North / Guy of Gisbourne respectively.
In the interview conducted by James Kleinmann, we get to hear about how he took on the role of Thorin, what he felt like taking on the role, the songs and what it felt like seeing his character turned into an action figure! The interview is below in all it’s glory.

Angry Birds, the most downloaded paid app of all time, will not fly into theaters 2016, as much as Hop into them. Hop and Despicable Me producer John Cohen will oversee the making of the film for Angry Birds creator Rovio Entertainment, who is going into the movie making business for the first time with this film. That's likely the reason thev've also tapped former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel to exec produce the Angry Birds movie. Maisel exec produced the Iron Man movies, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and even the 2008 Edward Norton version of The Incredible Hulk - maybe that means Big Brother Bird Terence will Smash!

Movies we now get to see stars of the Michael Bay (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) film, Dwayne “The Rock “ Johnson (G.I.

Pain and Gain sees director Michael Bay return behind the camera for his first film outside of the Transformers franchise since 2005’s The Island. And with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in the leads, there’s every reason to expect great things next spring.

The new year is fast approaching and, on the Internet, that means just one thing: Time to put together some top 10 lists. And since "The Avengers" was undoubtedly the film event of the year — $1.5 billion worldwide doesn't lie — we thought it would only be fitting to ring out the old by taking a look at the Top 10 Avengers of 2012.
Just how awesome are the Avengers? They're so awesome that they get a Top 10 list even though there were only six of them in the movie.
And that's because "The Avengers" wasn't just the top grossing film of the year; it's also become the centerpiece for Marvel's ever-expanding film universe. Which means there were characters who didn't even appear in "The Avengers" that still managed to produce some of the most buzzed-about moments of the year in Hollywood.
So grab your Uru hammer and strap yourself in, because this list is »

Marvel Studios had a grand ambition of binding together various franchises into one intersecting mega-narrative. While such a thing is easily and often done in comics, in movies it proves much trickier, what with the wrangling of talent, and different visions from different directors risking a disconnect. But Marvel has been dedicated and meticulous in allowing individual films a unique vision, while binding them together with recurring characters. Chief among these is Nick Fury, played pitch-perfectly by Samuel L. Jackson. Jackon's Fury first appeared in 2008's Iron Man, and has since popped up in every successive Marvel venture, from Thor to Captain America: The First Avenger and as a full-fledged force in The Avengers. Considering this track record, we sort of assumed Jackson would also reprise his role in Marvel Studios upcoming slate of sequels, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, Jackson himself »

Iron Man 3 has become so exclusive that even Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) isn't allowed in. The "No Avengers Allowed" production directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) is locked down as a Tony Stark-centric experience after the fallout of the events in The Avengers. While Robert Downey Jr. won't have to share any screen time with his heroic teammates this time around, you can be sure to expect some sort of end credits tag linking it to Thor 2, aka Thor: The Dark World. Surprisingly, Jackson may not appear in that film either, but will next play Fury in Captain America 2, aka Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hit the jump to see what Jackson had to say. In a recent interview with Total Film (via Crave), Jackson commented on his scheduled appearance in the upcoming slate of Marvel's "Phase 2" films: "I think my next time as »

Last month, it was confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson will return as Nick Fury in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, there are still two more Marvel Phase II movies hitting theaters before that sequel, with Iron Man 3 arriving May 3, 2013 and Thor: The Dark World debuting November 8, 2013. Today, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that Nick Fury will not be popping up in Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World.
After that, The Avengers 2 will likely be the next Nick Fury appearance, unless he makes some sort of surprise cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor is still working under a massive nine-picture deal he signed with Marvel Studios. He has »
As the Marvel universe continues to expand, the one sort-of constant has been Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, popping his head into "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and of course, "The Avengers" to ensure he can provide the exposition to keep the movies connected. But it seems he'll finally get to take a bit of break as the "Iron Man 3" won't be needing his services. "I think my next time as Nick Fury is in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Because I’m not in 'Iron Man 3,'" he told Total Film (via MTV). "None of the Avengers are in 'Iron Man 3.' It’s a standalone 'Iron Man' movie." So that will still leave plenty for fans to speculate about, particularly when it comes to the post credit sequence. With none of the Avengers being involved, will »

What is Casting Couch? It’s a round-up of Hollywood casting news, not one of those porn videos where a 19-year-old gets exploited in a grimy-looking office. Move along, perv. Now that we’ve got all of those live action Snow White movies out of the way, it makes sense that we would move down the fairy tale lineup and start seeing a rash of new Cinderella projects popping up. And, if Disney has their way, their Mark Romanek-directed Cinderella script from The Devil Wears Prada scribe Aline Brosh McKenna will be the hit that starts the trend. They’re trying to get casting for the film off on the right foot with the acquisition of a big name, as Deadline reports that the House of Mouse is in serious negotiations with Cate Blanchett to come on board to play a character called Lady Tremaine, known in some circles as the wicked stepmother.

The latest to emerge from the set is a video of a stunt, giving us a little tease of the action we have to look forward to from the upcoming blockbuster, due out in Autumn / Fall 2013, and we can’t wait for it to hit.
“Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” in theaters November 8, 2013, continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful »
