When the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with 2008's original Iron Man film, few people realized that the first appearance of Nick Fury in the inaugural Marvel Studios post-credits scene would've led to something so monumental. It's actually kind of hard now to think about a superhero film climate without the massive shared universe's presence, since it's existed for nearly a decade by now. In 2008, the big superhero movies that arrived that summer were the aforementioned Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and that was also the summer that gave us The Dark Knight. We were only two years removed from entries like X-Men: The Last Stand and Superman Returns, with both of those franchises being in precarious positions by the time the McU debuted. Now, though, we...

Capping off a busy day for the Marvel camp, a series of behind-the-scenes pictures for Thor: Ragnarok have now surfaced online showcasing all-new aliens, otherworldly sets, and Chris Hemsworth leaping into action as the eponymous Norse God.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt For the Wilderpeople), Ragnarok is the third and final Marvel movie on course to release in 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first two – and it’ll herald the hotly-anticipated reunion of Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. But if Joss Whedon’s Avengers toyed with the idea of pitting the allies against one another all those years ago, by tapping into Greg Pak’s beloved Planet Hulk comic book, Thor: Ragnarok will take that bubbling rivalry and thrusting it smack bang in the middle of Sakaar’s gladiatorial arena. You’ll even get an early glimpse of that »

Thor: Ragnarok is a flick that’s shaping up to be one of this year’s potential wild card movies. While we all loved the character of Thor, there was much to be desired in his first sequel, Thor: The Dark World. As fun as that movie was at times, there was little denying that it was a bit of a narrative mess. So much so that, as of this writing, it sits at 66 percent on Rotten Tomatoes as the lowest rated Marvel flick in the McU (though, still not that bad, when all said and done). Since the bar had been so consistently high in the past, its narrative weaknesses were all the more glaring.

With the digital release of Doctor Strange today, we’ve got some brand new concept art for Thor: Ragnarok from the Phase Three preview bonus feature, which sees The Incredible Hulk dressed in his Planet Hulk armor as he does battle with the God of Thunder, along with a first look at Cate Blanchett’s villain Hela; take a look here via Cbm…

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk. »

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
If you're going to spend millions of dollars on a Super Bowl commercial, you might as well do something special and have a well-known director at the helm. Many of the ads playing during Super Bowl Li are indeed from established filmmakers. And for a special distinction this year two of the spots will be produced and broadcast live, one by Peter Berg and another starring Adam Driver.

“I think the overall sense that I’m trying to give to the audience and what I want the audience to leave the cinema carrying with them is a sense of joy really,” said Waititi. “Sometimes I would stop and think, I’m doing a movie that’s got Thor and Doctor Strange and The Incredible Hulk and Loki and every character is so strange and different… Civil War it’s just humans, humans with human problems. Ours is creatures and beings and all these sorts of really different characters. Again displaying human problems, but in outer space or in other worlds.”
Waititi also confirmed that he’ll be making a cameo in the film, »

2017 certainly looks to be an eclectic year for Marvel Studios, one which will be capped by Thor: Ragnarok, the long awaited third solo outing featuring the titular Asgardian warrior. And from what we’ve recently learned, the film’s director, Taika Waititi, plans on showing us that cameos aren’t reserved only for Stan Lee.
Although we don’t know what his onscreen role will entail, Waititi had this to say in a recent interview with Av Club:
”It’s not like a thing that I’ve ever planned, but now I’m in all of my movies in a small role or a larger role. I’ll probably just keep doing that. It’s like a dumb thing I do now.”
By now, it’s certainly no secret that Thor won’t be the lone Marvel hero showing up in this movie, as it’s set to feature two »

This year looks to potentially be the biggest year to date for Marvel Studios. For the past several years, the studio has managed to churn out two movies a year every year, and in 2017, with the help of Sony Pictures, there will be three official Marvel Cinematic Universe movies: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and finally, Thor: Ragnarok.
While we’re properly excited for the former two films on that list, the latter movie has the most question marks, as well as the most untapped potential. We know so far that the film will feature both Thor and Hulk (presumably going head-to-head in a gladiator-type match), and that it’s been coined (more often than we dare to tell) as an “intergalactic road trip movie.” We also know that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will be making an appearance, as implied in the mid-credits scene in the Doctor Strange movie. »

Movies and TV shows have always served as a perfect source of inspiration for slot machine designers. The Vegas Palms casino online has quite a few of them, titles like Jurassic Park, Bridesmaids, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Battlestar Galactica (with a Jurassic World inspired slot machine reportedly in the works). Movie and TV show inspired slots are great not only to retain players but to promote upcoming movies, too – at least two of the above were released in time for their respective franchises’ revivals.
The world seems to have an unlimited supply of movies, yet the number of slot machines inspired by them is rather low. It’s a pity – fans should be able to enjoy the company of their favorite stars in a bit more active fashion. Here are a few franchises that could make perfect slot machines, bringing them one step closer to their fans’ hearts…

We've noticed that directors tend to get a bit wibbly when talking about actor Dane DeHaan, and Mr. Besson is no exception...
2017 looks set to finally be Dane DeHaan's time to shine.

After starring in Josh Trank's 2012 sci-fi flick Chronicle as an abused lad driven mad with (super)power, and as a troubled soul in Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines in the same year, DeHaan became a hot ticket.

Doctor Strange was finally released in Japan this weekend, and it debuted there with an impressive $4.5 million. This was the final territory that the Marvel Studios movie had to debut in, and as a result, it's now reached the $664 million mark worldwide ($433 million of that has come from overseas). That's a great result for Doctor Strange, and you have to believe we'll now end up seeing a sequel. The movie passing $700 million would have been nice, but considering the fact that it was produced for around $165 million, it's earned more than enough to justify a follow-up in the very near future. After all, don't forget that Doctor Strange has passed the worldwide cumes of The Incredible Hulk ($263 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($371 million), Thor ($449 million), Ant-Man ($520 million), Iron Man ($585 million), and Iron Man 2 ($623.9 million). Long before the Sorcerer Supreme returns in a solo outing, however, he'll soon return »
Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends get to play studio execs and cast talent for upcoming projects. We sort of take the same tact as the old Wizard Magazine features where we choose our dream picks for coveted roles without necessarily being tied down to realistic options.
With the case of Universal's upcoming Cinematic Universe of Classic Monsters, we thankfully have a very wide palette to choose from since the studio has already secured some surprisingly high-profile talent. So that actually takes some of the "pie in the sky/fantasy" nature out of our picks, since it seems like they're able to get who ever they want to appear in these films.

Scott Derrickson has been using his newly-elevated profile to sound off on all kinds of things lately. If you follow the director on social media, you've likely seen that he's relishing the added exposure awarded to him thanks to his work on Marvel's Doctor Strange. One interesting topic he was recently asked to give his two cents on was which character(s) he'd most like to see enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As you likely know, if you're at a site like Lrm, before there was a Marvel Studios, Marvel Comics used to pimp out there characters to different studios in order to get movies made. Sony gobbled up the film rights to Spider-Man, Universal had the rights to The Incredible Hulk, and Fox grabbed the X-Men rights, for example. Then, once Marvel Studios was founded and wanted to start making its own Cinematic Universe that included all of its beloved characters, »

Yesterday, production started on Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, with filming taking place for several months as this movie shoots back-to-back with a currently-untitled Avengers 4 Sequel. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo shared the first set photo yesterday, featuring the many trailers used by the massive cast during the shoot. Today, we have another photo from Sean Gunn, who has essentially confirmed he'll be featured in this sprawling superhero adventure as his Guardians of the Galaxy character Kraglin (though, he does also embody Rocket Raccoon on set as well, with Bradley Cooper giving Rocket his voice). What's more, the actor is seen sporting a new winter hat, which features the Infinity War logo on it.
While we have heard in the past that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, those reports didn't say one way or antoher if supporting characters from the Guardians movies »
Last week, a report surfaced from the Sundance Film Festival that production starts today, Monday, January 23, on both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers sequel, which are both shooting back-to-back. Earlier today, the Russo Brothers confirmed this report, by sharing the first photo from the set of Avengers: Infinity War, although it doesn't feature any members of the star-studded cast. Instead, this photo showcase a few of the large trailers that are used by the stars during production, and with a cast that could feature upwards of 67 characters, this may be just a small fraction of the trailers that are used on set.
The Russo Brothers took to Facebook this morning to share this image, which could very well be the first of many that surface from this production. Both movies are shooting on a rumored budget of $500 million, with the back-to-back shoot expected to last upwards of six months, »
Super Bowl Sunday is just a few weeks away, and while we'll still have to wait and see who'll be playing in the big game, one of the very first TV commercials has debuted early. Wix returns to the Super Bowl this year, with their campaign kicking off on YouTube Live and Facebook Live, marking the third year that Wix has been part of the Super Bowl ad lineup. This year's ad features two of the biggest action stars from the big screen, Jason Statham and Gal Gadot, who team up to destroy a fancy restaurant.
The ad, which Wix debuted on YouTube, shows a restaurant owner named Felix, who starts designing a website for his restaurant on Wix, while some action-packed drama unfolds in the dining area. When some thugs start harassing the patrons, Jason Statham and Gal Gadot take action, taking down these thugs while destroying Felix's restaurant in the process, »
