Robert Downey Jr. brings roses and Josh Brolin as every Avenger gets a Marvel panel moment

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

Comic-Con 2014: Kingsman: The Secret Service shows key, action-packed scenes

26 July 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service blew the doors off Comic-Con’s Hall H with a storming presentation on Friday 25 July, showcasing two big, slick action sequences. Comic creator Mark Millar hosted the panel, and talked about missing the fun in modern spy movies, laughing, “When Bond kills a guy now, he cries in the shower about it afterwards.” Director Matthew Vaughn prepared a video intro for the crowd with Mark Hamill in tow. Vaughn wore a Kick-Ass mask, and after a brief intro, he spun the camera to reveal Hamill wearing a...

First Look at Mark Hamill in Kingsman: The Secret Service

26 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Super Hero Hype

We got to see some extremely fun new footage from Matthew Vaughn's upcoming spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service. The footage included a ridiculously action-packed scene that involved a secret agent trying to interrogate a character in the film played by Mark Hamill (Star Wars). It was really cool to see Hamill up on the big screen again. It got me even more excited to see him in Star Wars: Episode VII

Unfortunately, the clip hasn't been released online yet, but we do have a photo of Hamill with the films' star Colin Firth, who's obviously not very happy with him. I've included a few other photos for you to check out as well. 

The movie also stars Samuel L. JacksonMichael Caine, and Taron Egerton. The story is based on the comic book by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen). It tells the story »

‘Secret Service’: Mark Millar Says Colin Firth is the James Bond That’s Cool

25 July 2014 7:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Following the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and writer Mark Millar are preparing to release their next collaboration - Kingsman: The Secret Service. The film follows Harry Hart (Colin Firth) – who helps turn delinquent teenager Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) into a new spy recruit and bring him into the world of espionage. However, even though Eggsy is featured heavily in the trailers and serves as the inlet to the world of Kingsman, the most talked-about aspect of the project is Colin Firth’s move from romantic comedies and historical dramas to espionage action.

After three decades on the stage and screen, Firth has racked up enormous critical ...

Film Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

24 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the wayward denizens of “Star Wars’” Mos Eisley Cantina rose up and demanded their own starring vehicle, it would probably look something like “Guardians of the Galaxy,” an alt-“Avengers” in which a ragtag band of misfits and mercenaries make the world a safer place almost by accident. An unusually prankish and playful Marvel Studios vehicle, director James Gunn’s presumptive franchise-starter is overlong, overstuffed and sometimes too eager to please, but the cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant — as does Chris Pratt’s winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai. While these “Guardians” seem unlikely to challenge the box office benchmarks set by their Marvel brethren, this inaugural outing should nevertheless inject some much-needed life into Hollywood’s sagging summer fortunes.

Introduced in the January 1969 issue of “Marvel Super-Heroes,” the Guardians have been spun off, recast and rebooted several times over the decades, »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver' Revealed

24 July 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff', as played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson ("Kick-Ass") from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby...

...as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound...

"...the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

It’s all up to Chloë Grace Moretz in new trailer for If I Stay

23 July 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Based on Gayle Forman’s wildly popular bestselling novel, If I Stay follows Mia (Chloë Grace Moretz), a talented cellist en route to Julliard, who falls in love with a guitar player named Adam (Jamie Blackley) – as one does if you are a teenaged girl. Her bright future gets thrown into question, however, when a tragic car accident forces her into limbo between life and death.

This looks like the very definition of a “tearjearker,” and we’re intrigued to see Moretz, who is known for genre fare like Kick-AssLet Me In, and Carrie, in the role of Mia. The Fault In Our Stars crowd is going to love this one.

Check out the brand new trailer for If I Stay, which heads to theatres in August, below: »

The Weinstein Company To Release One Chance On Yahoo Screen Before It Hits Theaters

21 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.

Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.

Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »
