James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel expected to announce its Phase Three plans at Comic-Con tomorrow, it seems we may be getting to see more of the Guardians of the Galaxy after the release of next week’s superhero space opera, with screenwriter Nicole Perlman telling The Wrap that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is happening, with James Gunn returning to direct.

“[Marvel] started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction. Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they’ll wanna do a sequel. So it’s going to happen. James will be directing Guardians 2, so he would also be writing Guardians 2.”

So, it looks like Marvel has plenty of faith in Gunn, and we’ll find out if it’s warranted when Guardians of the Galaxy arrives next week. »

Chris Pratt wants Star-Lord to kill Iron Man

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a press conference in London promoting Guardians of the Galaxy (read our ★★★★ review here), director James Gunn spoke about Chris Pratt’s ideas of what would happen if and when the Guardians meet Earth’s Mightiest Heroes...

“Chris and I were driving somewhere and we were having one of our ridiculous conversations about Guardians and what we could do with this universe,” the director explained. “And he looked at me and said, ‘dude, I really, really think Star-Lord should kill Iron Man. It would be so awesome if he just came down, and shot Tony Stark in the face. People would be so surprised!’”

“Marvel will never use any of my ideas, so this isn’t a spoiler”, Pratt adds. “But in the comics, Tony Stark and Gamora have a little thing – and how does Peter Quill feel about that? And he’s all like, ‘I don’t like »

James Gunn on the chances of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy teaming up

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shot down the rumours about The Incredible Hulk meeting up with the Guardians for the inevitable sequel to the upcoming superhero space opera, stating that “I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy.”

However, speaking to Digital Spy, it seems Gunn is more convinced that The Hulk may team up with the Guardians, albeit with the rest of the Avengers by his side, with the director stating that: “I think that there’s certainly a decent chance that in the near future some of the Guardians or some of the the Avengers, or the Guardians and the Avengers, or some permutation of that will meet at some point in time.”

Gunn is presumably referring to The Avengers 3, which is expected to see the superheroes squaring off against the cosmic villain Thanos (and for which »

‘Rio 2′ Flies Into Top Spot on Home Video Sales Charts

24 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The animated adventure-comedy “Rio 2,” from 20th Century Fox, easily snagged the top spot on both national home video sales charts the week ending July 20.

The sequel earned nearly as much at the box office as the 2011 original – $130.3 million versus $143.6 million – and, with no high-powered competition, sailed to the top spot on both the Nielsen VideoScan First alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The prior week’s top seller, Warner’s “The Lego Movie,” slipped to No. 2 on both charts, with a two-pack featuring both “Rio” films, available exclusively at Walmart, selling enough copies to debut at No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart.

“Rio” fever ran so high that the original, released on disc more than three years ago, shot back up into the top 10 on both sales charts, finishing at No. »

Ant-Man concept art revealed in new Comic-Con poster

24 July 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Ant-Man could use all the good press it can get, and what better place to get it than at San Diego Comic-Con? Geeks everywhere are still feeling the pain of Edgar Wright’s departure from the film, but things appear to be moving as scheduled and the studio will likely have something to show fans when they take to the stage in Hall H on Saturday.

The only thing we’ve seen from the film is a VFX demo reel Edgar Wright brought to Sdcc a couple years ago, so it’s about time that we get something new. Courtesty of Entertainment Weekly, we have some cool Ant-Man concept art in the form of a Comic-Con poster, which features a great look at Ant-Man’s look, as well as shots of the Ant-Men themselves, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. There’s also a great image of Ant-Man riding an actual ant, »

First Poster For The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

23 July 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Peter Jackson has shared the first poster for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies ahead of the big event Warner Brothers has planned for San Diego Comic-Con. And it is a ripper!The poster is clearly intended to remind us where The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug left off, rather than hype us up for the titular battle, which *Spoiler Alert* is a glorious clusterfuck crescendo of dwarves and men and elves and orcs and wargs and bats and giant eagles and motherfucking bezerker bear-mode Beorn. All in good time, and good times ahead. ...

Smaug is Ready to Strike in First Poster for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

23 July 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have released the first poster for Peter Jackson’s third and final instalment in The Hobbit franchise, The Battle of the Five Armies, a movie that they’re calling “The Defining Chapter”.

In the poster, we see Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) preparing to destroy Laketown, the location he set off for at the end of the last movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. With Bilbo Baggins and the dwarves still on the Lonely Mountain, only one person stands in the dragon’s way; Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans).

The first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will likely premiere at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, and should be online shortly after, so stay tuned to HeyUGuys for that.

The movie is set to be released on December 12th. Click on the poster below for the full-size version.

22 July 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Comic-Con 2014 just a few days away, which will offer fans a sneak peek at The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Warner Bros. has released two new photos featuring Gandalf (Ian McKellen) interacting with the elf king Thranduil (Lee Pace), and another with the wizard getting ready for battle alongside Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans). Take a look, then read on for what writer/producer Philippa Boyens has to say about director Peter Jackson's final Middle Earth adventure.

Back in April, Warner Bros. announced that this final adventure was changing from The Hobbit: There and Back Again to The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, which hints that this last Middle Earth tale will be more action-packed that its predecessors. Philippa Boyens revealed that fans don't remember what happens at the end of J.R.R. Tolkien's novel, which is much more intense than some may believe. »

Evangeline Lilly Denies Ant-man Rumors; Shares Thoughts On Edgar Wright's Departure

21 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Talking to SlashFilm recently, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Lost star Evangeline Lilly was asked whether she could comment on the constant reports that she'll be playing The Wasp in Edgar Wright's Peyton Reed's Ant-Man. Her response wasn't what many of us wanted to hear though! "No, I can’t," she bluntly replied. "I don’t know anything about those rumors." The trades recently confirmed that Lilly Is in the movie, so perhaps this denial has something to do with the fact that the Ant-Man cast will all be brought on stage at Comic-Con this weekend. That's a theory the site put to her, and when the Real Steel actress was asked whether she has more planned than just panels for The Hobbit and The Squickerwonkers, she said: "I’m an actress, but I’m not stupid. I can’t answer that question." However, for someone in the movie, »
