New quad poster for The Imitation Game

With just under three weeks to go until its release, a new poster has arrived online for The Imitation Game, which features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as British mathematician and World War II codebreaker Alan Turing…

See Also: Read our review of The Imitation Game here

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.

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). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Kick-Ass 3′

17 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Mark Millar | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 232pp

When Kick-Ass was introduced to the world by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. not only were we introduced to that him as a character, but more importantly Hit-Girl.  Dave Lizewski aka Kick Ass wasn’t a real superhero, Hit-Girl was, and she made Kick-Ass into everything he was destined to be.  Now we are at Kick-Ass 3 is Dave finally a fully fledged superhero, or still a comic book obsessed wannabe?

Kick-Ass 3 starts with a shocker, Hit-Girl is arrested and stuck in a maximum security jail.  Leaving instructions for Kick-Ass on how to break her out she waits for the day he finally rescues her.  The only problem is he has other things on his mind, mainly a new girlfriend and the Justice Forever team which is fragmenting, and his focus is on everything but being a superhero. »

Robert Downey Jr. may bring Iron Man to 'Captain America 3'

13 October 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have never really gotten along. They may not be enemies, but if not for The Avengers they probably wouldn't be friends, and the abrasive relationship between Iron Man and Captain America has fueled one of the greatest storylines in the modern Marvel Comics universe: Civil War, the epic 2006-07 crossover series that pitted hero against hero. Now comes word that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to join Chris Evans in Captain America 3 in a story that would bring this clash to the big screen, two sources confirm to EW. But it is "far from a done deal, »

Chloë Grace Moretz -- I Win Big Bucks If Denzel Puts Asses In Seats

13 October 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Nobody's pulling for Denzel Washington's new action flick more than his young co-star Chloë Grace Moretz -- because she's on the verge of a six-figure haul that will make her one of the highest paid teens in Hollywood. 17-year-old Chloë -- who also starred in the "Kick-Ass" movies -- already took home a $400,000 payday for "The Equalizer" ... but according to the her contract she stands to make a ton more if the movie achieves »

Is Mark Strong in Bond 24?

2 October 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daniel Craig is currently preparing to begin work on the still-untitled 24th James Bond movie, and payed a little pre-filming visit to Morocco this week. There, he’s been spotted with The Imitation Game and Low Winter Sun actor Mark Strong.

The photo taken of them in Morocco together has sparked quite a bit of speculation that Strong is in fact in Bond 24, perhaps as the newest Bond villain. He’s often stated his desire to play that role, and has shown throughout his career that he can be a formidable adversary (just look at his work in Kick-Ass, Green Lantern, and Sherlock Holmes, which landed him on the top of fan wishlists for the role of Lex Luthor).

While it’s entirely possible that Strong is playing a Bond villain, this news should be taken with an Aston Martin-sized grain of salt. He and Craig are close friends, »

She may be a teenager, but Chloë Grace Moretz already has over 40 film and TV credits to her name.

Moretz got her start early, making her big screen debut at the age of 6 in "Amityville Horror," but it wasn't until 2010 that she broke out in bloody crowd-pleaser "Kick-Ass." Since her performance as the tough-as-nails Hit-Girl, the actress has turned in memorable starring performances in "Carrie" (2013) and "If I Stay" (2014). This fall, Moretz stars opposite Denzel Washington in the action-thriller "The Equalizer."

From her connection to Miley Cyrus to her unlikely acting coach, here are 17 things you probably don't know about Chloë Grace Moretz.

Chloe Grace Moretz is taking on 24-year-old actresses for adult parts and winning

23 September 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto - Chloe Grace Moretz has been working in the movie and TV business before she turned 7-years-old.  She's played a Hit Girl, a vampire, a horror movie icon and, most recently, a young woman deciding whether to come out of a coma or not in "If I Stay."  It's safe to say, however, that Moretz's role in Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" is her toughest yet.  The again, most 16-year-olds aren't playing prostitutes in an R-rated action flick. Speaking to HitFix before the world premiere of "Equalizer" in Toronto earlier this month, Moretz talked about her character,  Teri, a young Russian immigrant who has found herself trapped in the clutches of a mob boss who pimps her to the rich and not-so rich men of Boston.  Luckily, Teri has a guardian angel watching her in Robert (Denzel Washington), a friendly man she has casual conversations with at a local dinner every night. »

Check Out Colin Firth as an Action Star!

23 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Another movie based on a comic book is coming at you, and this one has Colin Firth! He stars as a secret service agent who recruits a mixed-up young kid (Taron Egerton) in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) actually cowrote the comic book with his Kick-Ass collaborator Mark Millar, so it should be a pretty faithful adaptation. It's cool to see Colin Firth fling a beer mug at a guy using an umbrella handle, especially when it's set to a new track from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding. Have I mentioned Samuel L. Jackson plays a ridiculous-looking villain? This is a must watch. The movie is set for a Feb. 13 release date, so stay tuned for more footage and pictures until then! »
