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

4 hours ago | 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

22 hours ago | 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: »

21 July 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

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 »

Trailer released for Laggies starring Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz

17 July 2014 12:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After her great work with films such as Your Sister’s Sister and Humpday, director Lynn Shelton returns this autumn with Laggies, a film which could see her bridge the gap between indie and mainstream. A24 have released a new trailer for the film, which you can view below…

Laggies stars Keira Knightley (Begin Again) as Megan, a 28-year-old who is at the beginning of a early-life crisis. When her loving boyfriend proposes to her, she freaks out and flees. Aiming to lay low for a while as she tries to figure out what to do with her life, she begins to hang out with 16-year-old Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz, Kick-Ass) and her single Dad (Sam Rockwell, The Way, Way Back).

Given some quite positive reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Laggies is definitely one indie to keep a look out for in the  second half of the year. »

New Stills From Matthew Vaughn's Kingman: The Secret Service

16 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Matthew Vaughn’s big screen adaptation of Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons’ (Watchmen)The Secret Service has so far been received very well by those who have seen footage at a number of events, and we now have some brand new stills from the movie. It’s hard to tell how much the story has changed in its transition from page to screen, but there do appear to be a few notable character alterations or additions. Regardless, the story – Colin Firth’s Bond-like agent teaches his rough around the edges nephew (Taron Egerton) to »

The making of Kingsman: The Secret Service | A spy movie game changer?

16 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn has become something of a go-to filmmaker for quality comic book movies, having worked on the well-received X-Men: First Class and the adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's offbeat superhero adventure Kick-Ass.

Now he's back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on a concept he and Millar hatched together. Millar and Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons have already published the story as a comic book, and now Vaughn is working on the film version, which is less an adaptation than his own imagining of the original idea.

Vaughn has attracted a top cast, including Colin Firth and Mark Strong (who appeared together in a very different take on the spy genre, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as well as Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine and newcomer Taron Egerton.

The film centres around council estate kid Eggsy (Egerton), a young tearaway bailed out of jail by his late father's »

10 July 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the full Thursday schedule for Comic-Con 2014 was announced today, several studios such as Paramount and DreamWorks Animation did not reveal which movies they are presenting in San Diego. 20th Century Fox is trying a more direct approach, announcing that they will present Let's Be Cops, The Maze Runner, The Book of Life, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Hitman: Agent 47 during their Hall H panel on Friday, July 25, although the studio's highly-anticipated superhero reboot The Fantastic Four was not included.

Nicole Kidman is having memory issues in writer/director Rowan Joffe's ('Brighton Rock') new thriller 'Before I Go to Sleep'.

Lyndsy Fonseca Will Be The Escort

2 July 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After winning the hearts of action aficionados everywhere by starring on The CW’s Nikita for four seasons and appearing in the superhero caper Kick-Ass, Lyndsy Fonseca is set to delve into more comedic territory for her next big screen role, having recently signed on to star in romantic comedy The Escort.

As per Deadline, the pic “tracks a sex-obsessed journalist (Michael Doneger) who throws himself into the world of high class escorts when he starts following a Stanford-educated prostitute (Fonseca).”

That cursory plot outline doesn’t give us much to go on, but it’s clear that Doneger, who also co-wrote the script with Brandon A. Cohen, is hoping to use The Escort to prove himself as a leading man. Doneger tried something similar with indie flick This Thing with Sarah last year, directing, starring in and scripting that project, but it never made much noise upon release. Of course, »
