Tech Support: Period and fantasy do battle for Best Costume Design

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Clothes don't make the man?" That rule certainly doesn't hold true in the movies. Dress can say a lot about characters, their class, their self-image, their self-consciousness, the period and place in which they live, the story they're living and how a director wishes an audience to perceive them. Fortunately, the Academy's Costume Design branch recognizes this, as it consistently proves itself to be one of the most original sects of the organization, not overtly swayed by a film's overall perception. Every year, films that are critically maligned and/or have no other nominations tend to score here and the overall state of the Best Picture race tends to play only a peripheral role. Nevertheless, trends can be noted. Period pieces almost always take a majority of the nominations, frequently all five. Glamor is also awarded frequently. There are also great designers (such as Sandy Powell, Milena Canonero and Colleen Atwood »

29 October 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

On Tuesday, Marvel Studio's held a special event, where they unveiled the slate for the upcoming Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there were quite a few surprises revealed, including new characters and epic story lines. So join me, as I take a look at what Marvel's Phase Three has in store for us. Captain America: Civil War A major event, masterminded by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, in recent Marvel Comic's history, Civil War saw hero turn on hero with the introduction of the Super Hero Registration Act, which required all heroes to unmask and become a registered police force for the U.S. government. This didn't sit well with Captain America, who lead the dissenters against the pro-regristion side, headed up by Iron Man. Now, unless Ant-Man, the only movie between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, introduces an entire universe of heroes, »

Teaser For Agent Carter Is Released, Plus Detailed Synopsis

29 October 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that these days, anything to do with superheroes or comic book adaptations is always ‘highly anticipated.’ With built-in, deeply loyal fanbases, DC and Marvel in particular tend to have audiences in the palms of their mighty corporate hands when it comes to new projects. While DC has staged a multi-pronged assault on TV viewers – with Gotham, Constantine and The Flash all launching this year, Marvel has been teasing its ace-in-the-hole, Agent Carter.

Heading to the small screen in early 2015, Agent Carter is the spinoff TV show for the supporting character from Captain America: The First Avenger. It will see fan favourite Hayley Atwell reprise her role, and Marvel recently released a teaser for the series, reminding us that when it comes to protecting the world, the best man for the job is actually a woman:

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on. »

‘Kite’ Blu-ray Review

27 October 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Samuel L. Jackson, India Eisley, Callan McAuliffe, Carl Beukes, Deon Lotz, DeVille Vannik, Zane Meas, Lionel Newton, Jaco Muller, Terence Bridgett | Written by Brian Cox | Directed by Ralph Ziman

Yasuomi Umetsu’s (chief animator for Arms Corporation who has also worked as a designer on Akira, Spriggan, Elfen Lied and Casshern) original anime Kite was, when first released in 1998, a highly controversial graphic story of hard, gory action and illicit eroticism. Banned in certain countries across the globe due to its scenes of rape and revenge, in Japan it has sold nearly a million DVD units.  It has also been released in Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Russian, Czech Republic, Slovakia and the United States – where it remains popular; yet the original Ova and its sequel, have never had a UK release. In fact this Us film adaptation is the first time the franchise has been legitimately available in this country. »

Lyndsy Fonseca nabs recurring role in Agent Carter

27 October 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Lining up alongside Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter will be Lyndsy Fonseca’s new character Angie…

Marvel Studio’s Agent Carter is expected to hit our screens in the mid-season gap of the vastly-improved Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season.

The show comes more hotly anticipated than most thanks to the love shown for the preceding Agent Carter one-shot which was initially released on the Iron Man 3 DVD, to much acclaim.

As well as a tease during Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2’s first episode which confirmed the return of the Howling Commandos, and the recent confirmation of Dominic Cooper’s return, we now know a little more about the cast.

Lyndsy Fonseca - previously seen in Nikita, Kick-Ass and Hot Tub Time Machine - will play Angie, an aspiring actress and a friend to Peggy Carter. Whether Angie ends up getting involved with the espionage action remains to be seen. »

Lyndsy Fonseca Boards Marvel’s Agent Carter TV Series

25 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Former Nikita agent Lyndsy Fonseca has been recruited by Marvel to finalize the cast for the upcoming Agent Carter TV series set to debut during the Agents of Shield winter hiatus. Though Fonseca's resume, which also includes Kick-Ass, might indicate she'll be kicking Hydra butt alongside Hayley Atwell, that assumption  couldn't be further from the truth.

Instead, Fonseca will play an aspiring actress by the name  of Angie Martinelli. Like Peggy Carter, Martinelli is struggling to find her place as a woman in the post-war world of 1946, and she will befriend Carter as they lean on each other to overcome numerous obstacles.

Here's Marvel's official synopsis for Peggy Carter, based on a character that first appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, in modern times in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of Shield. She will also appear in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

13 Mind-Blowing Moments From the First 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Trailer

23 October 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From the sinister Ultron to the amazing Hulkbuster armor, this 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' trailer is incredibly revealing.

In a move that is likely to set a bad precedent, Marvel Studios released their extended teaser/trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron a whole week earlier than planned after a low-res version leaked online early Wednesday.

According to Deadline, acting quickly, and wanting their fans to get a good, solid look at the film's massive explosions, Marvel released this incredibly exciting sneak peek.

Oh wow, this movie looks amazing. Dark, somewhat bleak and a little nihilistic, but amazing.

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy).
