"The Judge" is back in court for another trailer. Oscar vets Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall star in this family drama about a slick, big city lawyer returning to his hometown to defend his father -- a renowned local judge -- in a murder case. The latest trailer doesn't do much to dispel the idea that "The Judge" is Grade A Hollywood cheese, pairing uplifting, soft-lit images with an inspirational pop anthem cranked up to 11. It also gives viewers a better look at co-stars Vera Farmiga (as the small town beauty) and Billy Bob Thornton, who looks to be enjoying his turn as a sharp-tongued prosecutor. So far, the critical reception has been somewhat mixed to say the least; HitFix's own Drew McWeeny calls it "risible Hollywood dreck" that "goes from pedestrian to painful to unintentionally funny before finally petering out somewhere around interminable." However, it may just be »

He won't have his buddies in The Avengers by his side, or CGI spectacle to carry him, so for the upcoming dramedy "The Judge," Robert Downey Jr. will have to rely on his quick wit, and the kind of acting chops we don't see from the actor when he's out saving the world. Instead, he'll have to save Robert Duvall. A new trailer has dropped for the Tiff Opening Film, and it mostly avoids the funny stuff in order to focus on the uplifting and rousing moments instead. Co-starring Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton and Leighton Meester, the movie tells the story of a slick, big city defense lawyer with daddy issues, who returns to his hometown to defend that aforementioned parent from a murder charge. Cue feelings! Cue indie rock songs! Cue emotions! Yes, this is pretty manipulative, old school stuff. "The Judge" opens on October 10th. »

During the San Diego Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures revealed that it's developing a "King Kong" prequel, called "Skull Island," focusing on the island where the giant ape lives.

Now comes word that the job went to Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer). And the star of the new film will be Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers). "Skull Island" is set to hit theaters on November 4th, 2016. »

Dominic Cooper played Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and the Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter, which the series is based on. Series star Hayley Atwell hinted in June that Dominic Cooper is returning as Howard Stark, but his casting has not been confirmed at this time.
The Stark butler is also an ally of Hayley Atwell's title character, although no other details about the role were released. It's possible that James D'Arcy is playing Edwin Jarvis, who was a faithful butler for The Avengers in the Marvel comic books. The character was changed to a high-tech AI computer for the Marvel movies staring with 2008's Iron Man, with Paul Bettany voicing the character.
As previously reported, we'll be meeting the original, human version of Jarvis in Marvel's Agent Carter. Though he's not mentioned by name, Variety report that British actor James D'Arcy has signed on to star as Howard Stark's (we still don't know if Dominic Cooper will reprise that role) butler in Marvel's upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger spin-off series. This will almost certainly be Edwin Jarvis, who served as The Avengers faithful butler in the comics, but was replaced by Paul Bettany's AI version for the movies. The site don't elaborate any further though, simply stating that he'll be an ally of Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter. D'Arcy was last seen as the villain in Let’s Be Cops, and he'll also have a role in Warner Bros.' upcoming sci-fi flick, Jupiter Ascending. »

Marvel fans who can’t get enough of the demigod Loki may be drawn to the massive monster franchise Legendary is cooking up, as it’s just been announced that Tom Hiddleston will play the lead role in the upcoming King Kong origins movie, Skull Island. A new director has also been attached to the film that will explore the seemingly prehistoric island teeming with colossal creatures.
Legendary announced today that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct Skull Island off a screenplay by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein. Skull Island was revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con during a surprising teaser video that concluded with an amped-up King Kong. In late July we reported that Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) had been offered the director’s chair for the project, but now it is Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) who will helm the large-scale adventure.

Have you ever wondered what Hawkeye and Black Widow.s baby would look like? Of course you have. Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are two preposterously good-looking people who sizzled with chemistry throughout Joss Whedon.s 2012 blockbuster, The Avengers. Well, here's your answer: Check out that ungodly image that Jeremy Renner recently uploaded to his Twitter account. When Renner unleashed the nauseating picture on his 81,000 followers, he did so alongside the caption: "Hawkeye and Widow? Widow and Hawkeye??? Hmmm. #iftheyhadababy #widow #hawkeye." There is just something unsettling and innately gross about seeing Renner as Clint Barton wearing what appears to be a mask of Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow face. However, if you.re able to take your eyes away from the truly terrifying, yet oddly hypnotic, coagulation of two beautiful Avengers, then you.ll also realize that it gives us a pretty good look at Hawkeye.s attire for »
When it comes to screen presence, few actors nowadays can compete with the power of Tom Hiddleston. Just look at his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: playing Loki, he is meant to be second fiddle to the likes of Thor and The Avengers, but he's walked away from all three of his features as one of the most buzzed about elements. That screen presence will definitely be coming in handy soon, because before too long the star is going to be sharing the screen with a cinematic legend who also happens to be a giant gorilla. Legendary Pictures has officially announced that Tom Hiddleston will be the star of Skull Island, the King Kong-related project announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and, what's more, the studio has also found a filmmaker to helm it. Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who made his feature debut last year with the critically beloved »
Marvel and Disney have made available the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it doesn't give much away to someone like me that doesn't know anything about the comics, but I have to assume comic book readers can see between the lines. As much as I'm not all that interested in another film in which "the fate of the planet hangs in the balance", I have high hopes for this one. I think Joss Whedon is working with the best this "cinematic universe" has to offer, which is he gets to play with all the characters, which cleans up the issue of "Where is so-and-soc" right off the bat, though with the addition of so many new characters it will be interesting to see how he balances their screen time and how well we'll get to know them all.

Legendary Pictures announced at Comic-Con in July that they are making Skull Island, which will be a King Kong origin story. The studio has now announced that Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers) will star in the movie, and it will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who is the director of the fantastic indie comedy Kings of Summer.
The studio showed off a teaser of the film at Comic-Con that took us through Skull Island and ended with King Kong standing up through the trees, beating his chest and letting out that classic Kong roar.
Hiddleston is an great actor and a favorite among fanboys and fangirls. There's no word on who he'll be playing in the movie, but I'm glad that he's going to be in it. I'm sure Legendary is happy about it as well. I also think that Vogt-Roberts is talented director and that he'll do an awesome »

Legendary Pictures announced today that Thor: The Dark World and Only Lovers Left Alive star Tom Hiddleston is in talks to star in the new King Kong film, Skull Island, with The Kings of Summer and You’re the Worst director Jordan Vogt-Roberts at the helm.
Unfortunately we still don’t know much about the project, though it will explore the titular island that King Kong and various other mysterious and monstrous creatures call home. Previous reports suggested that Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish was on the studio’s mind for the directing job, but they must have found something special in Vogt-Roberts.
This is not the only high-profile project on Vogt-Roberts and Hiddleston’s plates, however. Vogt-Roberts is already signed on to direct Metal Gear Solid for Sony, though that project will likely get pushed aside for now. Hiddleston, on the other hand, has a few upcoming films on his slate, »

The director is behind the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie for Sony, and helmed the pilot episode of FX's You're the Worst.

At this year’s Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures confirmed that along with Godzilla 2 they were developing a King Kong origin story called Skull Island. No additional details were revealed, though we have since learned that Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein would be penning the screenplay for this monster movie.
That has now been confirmed via press release today as the studio have announced that Jordan Vogt-Roberts is attached to direct Skull Island. He’s best known for popular Sundance film The Kings of Summer, but he’s also attached to Sony’s big screen adaptation of the Metal Gear Solid video game franchise.
Skull Island is set to be released on November 4th, 2016 and a brief (but rather vague) description of the film was included in the announcement. “Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences »
