Hot Toys' Tony Stark with Arc Reactor Creation 1/6th Scale Set

18 December 2014 11:17 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

After jumping in the water first and making such a big splash with the first Iron Man film, it seemed like Jon Favreau was forced to awkwardly tread the same same water in Iron Man 2 so as to not swim too far ahead of the origin films for Captain America and Thor, which were a solid year or more away. The stakes didn’t seem high enough, and all the groundwork being laid for the eventual Avengers team up just wasn’t as fun as it could have been. Even though Iron Man 2 had its missteps — pretty much everyone involved in the making of that film, including Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr., have acknowledged its flaws — it had some extraordinary set pieces and very iconic imagery. Who granted Mickey Rourke’s requests to do scenes in his underwear? Yeah, that was Favs. But who made a scene involving »

Evangeline Lilly says Ant-Man is in ‘good hands’ with Peyton Reed

16 December 2014 12:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Ant-Man got off to a rough start when original director Edgar Wright, who was working on the project from 2006, left over creative differences. Since his departure Peyton Reed took over and now in an interview with IGN to promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, star Evangeline Lilly has Peyton Reed as the new director:

“He was a delight. He actually in some ways reminded me a bit of Peter [Jackson],” she said “He had a fantastic sense of humour, was extremely immersed in the comic world all his life, is a big fan-boy but also extremely strong in his vision. He knew what he needed, and he knew if we had it or if we didn’t have it, and it’s such a huge luxury as an actor to know that your director really knows what he wants. He knows when he’s got it »

First Look At The Iron Man Armour From Avengers: Age Of Ultron

15 December 2014 1:47 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the movie hitting this side of the pond in April, time is getting short for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and we've seen relatively little from the highly anticipated sequel, save the hugely impressive teaser trailer. Well, Hot Toys is here to rectify that somewhat, giving us an extremely detailed look at their latest figure, which sees Tony Stark sporting the Mark Xliii he will be using to take the fight to Ultron.  It's pretty similar to the Mark Xlii from Iron Man 3, except for an inverted paint job, and a healthy injection of silver, harking back to the suit case armour from Iron Man 2. We all knew that the Clean Slate protocol wasn't the end of Tony suiting up, but it'll be interesting to see how Avengers: Age of Ultron brings in this bad ass new armour. Released: April 24th Ireland & UK / May 1st USA Synopsis: Marvel Studios »

Hot Toys Reveals Iron Man’s Mark Xliii Armor from Avengers: Age Of Ultron

15 December 2014 7:58 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Since Tony Stark decided to do away with all of his Iron Man armor in Iron Man 3, the superhero needs a new suit, and he'll have one for Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Hot Toys will have a line of new figures for the upcoming film, and they're kicking it off with the Mark Xliii armor, which features a new paintjob that tries to find a fresh way to blend the gold, silver, and hot-rod red from the previous armors.  I wasn't a big fan of the Xlii armor from Iron Man 3, and this one is only a little better.  I guess I'm old fashioned in thinking the Mark III from Iron Man was the best in terms of design, and the colors here just don't seem to go together all that well.  At least they're sticking with the circular arc reactor rather than returning to the triangle from »

Dfm talks distribution challenges

14 December 2014 1:14 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A Dubai Film Market (Dfm) panel discussed the challenges in distributing Arab films in the region and internationally, and how Emirati filmmaker Ali Mostafa’s From A To B may become a game-changer.

The film is set to receive a groundbreaking theatrical release across nine Middle Eastern territories on some 60 screens at the beginning of January.

By Us, European or Chinese standards, 60 screens may not seem a big deal but in a region where the widest releases – even for high-profile Hollywood titles – are on 120 screens, distributor Empire International’s plans for From A To B are ambitious. 

Arab films, bar a few Egyptian star vehicles, rarely travel beyond their territories of origin in the region, or further afield in Europe and the Us, and often even have a hard time finding distribution at home.

10 Man Of Steel Easter Eggs That Will Mean Something In Future DC Movies

10 December 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

Comic book movies are absolutely teeming with Easter eggs and Warner Bros.Man Of Steel was no different back in 2013.

The majority of such Easter eggs are simply included for the fun of it – they’re enjoyable for viewers to look out for and Man Of Steel included several that were nothing more than nods – but some have more relevance.

Occasionally, Easter eggs can serve as predictions for future movies or as a foreshadowing of things to come, such as in the case of Iron Man 2 when Wakanda was shown on a map (Black Panther is on his way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe) or in the case of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when a lot of recognisable villain paraphernalia was seen in the Oscorp building (the Sinister Six are on their way to that franchise).

Now the the DC Cinematic Universe is set to expand with »

Where next for Star Trek?

8 December 2014 6:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Has Paramount lost ground a little already with its Star Trek plans? And what are its movie, TV and videogame options?

This article contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.

Way back in 2009, Jj Abrams managed to reboot Star Trek successfully, attracting a bunch of fans who had never warmed to or tried Trek before, whilst managing to hold on to lots of the old ones. Abrams' film spun a yarn that kept the universe of Gene Roddenberry’s original series intact, even allowing for cameos from Leonard Nimoy’s Spock Prime (rumours abound that Shatner’s Kirk was meant to appear too).

Lots went right. The casting was strong, the film was good, and both critics and paying cinemagoers alike responded favourably (the film has an 83% aggregated rating on Metacritic and took $385 million at the global box office, certainly not to be sniffed at compared to previous Trek films). Why then, »

'Black Widow' Covers "Esquire"

7 December 2014 3:04 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ everybody's favorite 'Black Widow' actress, Scarlett Johansson, crowned "The Sexiest Woman Alive" in "Esquire" magazine.

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career. 

"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.

'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'. 

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

7 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We think of Marvel Studios as having the golden touch with can’t-miss hit films one after the other. As a result, our selective memory obscures Hulk and Iron Man 2 (and for some, though not me, Iron Man 3) as creatively underwhelming. Instead, we look at the box office totals only and, ahem, marvel at their track record. As a result, some had their knives out ready to skewer the studio for being audacious enough to offer up Guardians of the Galaxy. After all, who ever heard of them? How quickly one forgets. Critics were saying the same thing in 2008 when Iron Man arrived, wondering if enough non-geeks would turn out to see a B-list hero with a former addict in the lead.

Even the entertaining trailers, which clearly signaled the tone was going to be substantially lighter, couldn’t make people hold their judgment. Then the film opened. »

'Suicide Squad': A Brief History of the Black-Ops Bad Guys

5 December 2014 11:27 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As the casting announcements this week made clear, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is a movie that’s likely to draw a lot of attention when it’s released in 2016. The second of Warner Bros’ upcoming slate of movies based around DC Entertainment properties — and third movie in the current Dcu movie universe, following Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — the relative obscurity of the property makes it look as if Marvel went directly from Iron Man 2 to Guardians of the Galaxy. For those who might be wondering just what kind of characters

Evangeline Lilly says Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man “would have stuck out like a sore thumb” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

3 December 2014 2:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Buzzfeed caught up with Evangeline Lilly, during which they managed to quiz the actress on her upcoming role in Marvel’s Ant-Man, during which she shared her thoughts on Edgar Wright’s vision for the project, stating that it “would have stuck out like a sore thumb” as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I thought Edgar’s idea to blend the [Hank and Scott] stories was brilliant. You’re going to have fans up there who insist that you tell the story of Hank Pym, and fans up there who will be more on the Scott Lang side of it. … I think we are going to come close to pleasing them all. And what’s cool is that, you know, Janet Van Dyne is my mom. Hank Pym is my father. I was raised by two superheroes. I’m no schlump. »

'Avengers 2' Poster Has Best Look Yet at the Vision

3 December 2014 9:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans at an international Disney event spotted an Avengers: Age of Ultron promo art poster, which offers a new look at Paul Bettany's Vision. The sequel marks Paul Bettany's first live-action appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Marvel's The Avengers and Iron Man 3. So far, this is the best look yet that we've gotten at Paul Bettany's addition to the 2015 Avengers lineup.

As you can see in the promo art below, Vision is surrounded by Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). There is still very little we know about how Vision fits in to the sequel, but the story revolves around Tony Stark trying to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program. Things go awry, »

Mickey Rourke Defeats Opponent Half His Age in First Fight in 20 Years

28 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mickey Rourke has gone from The Wrestler back to boxing. The actor, 62, returned to the ring Friday, defeating a fighter less than half his age in a Moscow exhibition bout. Rourke sent Elliot Seymour, a 29-year-old former California Golden Gloves champion with a 1-9 professional record, to the canvas twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight. Many know Rourke as the '80s actor from 9½ Weeks or his more recent roles in Sin City and Iron Man 2, but the star got his first taste of fame as a boxer in the '60s and '70s. »

20 Past McU Easter Eggs That Will Mean Something In Phase 3

27 November 2014 7:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Movies these days are absolutely full to the brim with Easter eggs, references and director nods. Often, they are simply included for the sake of giving people something to search for, but they can also potentially foreshadow future inclusions in subsequent movies.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such inclusions are particularly prevalent and are more likely than most franchise’s Easter eggs to foreshadow future instalments for the simple reason that there are so many films.

Some Easter eggs have already proven to mean something, such as mid and post-credits scenes like Nick Fury’s visit to Tony Stark’s mansion in Iron Man, Mjolnir appearing at the end of Iron Man 2 and Loki’s interest in the Tesseract in Thor, as well as the likes of Captain America’s shield showing up in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Hawkeye’s cameo in Thor and the »

What's New on Netflix Streaming in December 2014

25 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Netflix streaming is upping the ante this December, adding enough high-profile TV shows and movies to more than make up for last month's lackluster offerings.

On the movie side, highlights include Will Ferrell and gang in "Anchorman 2," the Heath Ledger-starring "A Knight's Tale," Cameron Crowe classic "Almost Famous," Oscar-winning "American Beauty," and horror hits "Oculus" and "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." Oh, and let's not forget '80s classic "Troop Beverly Hills," '90s cult favorite "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion," or Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

And there's plenty to love about what's coming on the TV front: "American Horror Story: Coven" finally gets its day on Netflix, "Sharknado 2" storms its way to streaming, and Brit hit "Broadchurch" finally lands stateside. Oh, and December sees the premiere of the hotly anticipated Netflix Original series "Marco Polo" on the 12th.
