We already know that cinematographer Ben Davis (Kick-Ass, Guardians of the Galaxy) is set to take over from Seamus McGarvey on the 2015 sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now if a new rumour is to be believed, it seems that Marvel and Joss Whedon could also be going in a new direction with the musical score.
Treat this as a rumour for now, but according to a post over at Film Score Monthly (via ComicBookMovie), Brian Tyler - composer on this year's Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World, as well as the fanfare for the new Marvel Studios logo - is set to replace The Avengers' Alan Silvestri, who also scored Captain America: The First Avenger.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote her latest film In Secret, rising star Elizabeth Olsen offered up a few words about two huge blockbusters on the horizon in Gareth Edwards' Godzilla and Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
"I’ve never had to do camera tests. I’ve never done those before, and I was surprised that both Godzilla and Avengers didn’t do it. Both directors, Joss Whedon and Gareth Edwards alike, they just kind of know what they want and they both create things and have an energy and a way they communicate their plans. They can convince any person they want to do a role to do it. They just have such amazing visions. They’re people you want to work with. They are fun, smart guys, and you know it’s going to be a good time. You trust that they »

“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”
David Lowery’s Sundance hit is a 2013 film that I can guarantee you will grow in esteem as time goes by. Future generations will be surprised that it didn’t get enough attention on its initial release. I’ve been stunned at its complete absence in the year-end conversation. It’s not a perfect film but there’s a lot to like here from Bradford Young’s gorgeous cinematography to great performances by Casey Affleck, »

What up Cbm! It's Minty, and I’m back again with my analysis of the fourth of this year’s CBMs. While it’s not the most widely watched movie I’d love to hear your opinions on it. Just for context, I’m a massive fan of the original, and so I was really anticipating this one. As always, there will be Spoilers. Please read/skim, comment and enjoy! Kick-Ass 2 Studio: Plan B/Marv/Universal Release Date (Us): August 16, 2013 Director: Jeff Wadlow Box Office (Global): $59 million The Good - Colonel Stars & Stripes: The one thing that both the original and sequel did perfectly was to squeeze one last brilliant performance from a Hollywood star who has perhaps fallen past their prime. After Nicholas Cage’s strangely brilliant turn as Big Daddy in ‘Kick-Ass’, Jim Carrey doesn’t fail to impress as the Colonel, and delivers some truly hilarious lines of dialogue. »

Twentieth Century Fox is the studio behind Matthew Vaughn‘s adaptation of Millar’s miniseries The Secret Service, which [...]

2013 has been something of a vintage year for Brad Pitt – his troubled zombie thriller World War Z became a smash hit against all odds, and he co-produced Steve McQueen's critically acclaimed Oscar frontrunner 12 Years a Slave.
As the actor celebrates his 50th birthday, Digital Spy takes a look back over 10 key moments from his on-screen career.
Brad Pitt turns 50: 11 vintage pictures to celebrate
1. This Pringles advert from 1989
Because... wow. Pitt had a few early roles on the small screen – most notably in 21 Jump Street, Dallas and short-lived Fox high school drama Glory Days – but we feel 'Once You Pop', directed by Lawrence Bridges, really sums up the first era of his career. That era being "the eighties".
2. Thelma & Louise (1991)
2013 may not have featured anything quite as major as the assemblage of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes or the conclusion of an epic trilogy featuring a certain Caped Crusader, but it was still been a pretty good year for superhero movies. Two of The Avengers starred in their respective solo outings, Superman finally returned to the big screen, Wolverine at last got a worthy spin-off, and the second volume of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s critically acclaimed Kick-Ass was adapted.
There were a few other comic book movies released of course (none of which particularly impressed audiences or critics), but in this feature, we count down the ten best moments which were featured in Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Man of Steel, The Wolverine and Kick-Ass 2. Some of these would prove to be quite controversial, so as always, we’d love to hear whether or not you »

Hollywood is being good to us this December, dear readers. This past weekend brought us The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – which is a lot of fun, and I definitely recommend it – and this week sees the release of American Hustle and Saving Mr. Banks, both of which I’m quite looking forward to. And in even more good news, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column is one I’ve been looking forward to writing for a long time, because we finally have our first look at my most anticipated movie of next year – Godzilla.
Premise: An epic rebirth of Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
My take: As I’ve written about before in this column, I have loved Japanese monster movies ever since I was a kid. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? This little Texan indie is part romance and part dramatic thriller. Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, and Ben Foster headline this top-notch cast about a man on the run, the woman he loves, and the sheriff who tries to get between them. (Not in a romantic way, just, you know, because he's a man of the law and Affleck's character broke out of jail.)
Why We're In: It's a slow and sweet Sundance favorite, and the Texas weather looks a whole lot hotter than the snow most of us are dealing with every day.

The Grand Budapest Hotel: Wes Anderson's upcoming The Grand Budapest Hotel looks like another delightful adventure, with an all-star cast and a light comic tone. A cool new motion poster reflects that spirit. The movie opens in theaters on March 7.

20th Century Fox has acquired the film rights to Mark Millar's Starlight.
The studio will adapt the Kick-Ass creator's upcoming superhero miniseries, reports Latino Review.
The six-issue miniseries described as "Flash Gordon meets The Dark Knight Returns" was announced earlier in December.
It will centre around a hero who saved the universe 35 years before, but returned to a normal life on Earth, where no-one believed his tales.
He is called upon to ride out one last time when a rocket ship arrives on Earth.
The X-Men franchise's Simon Kinberg is expected to produce the movie.
The Goran Parlov-illustrated Starlight will kick off a new shared universe of superhero stories from the writer's Millarworld line when it arrives at Image Comics in 2014.
Our weekly round up of the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom, The Sinister Six, Batman vs. Superman, Superman Lives, Arrow, X-Men: Apocalypse, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and more....
After an absolutely crazy week for superhero news last time around, things have slowed down a little over the past seven days, although there's still plenty to get through in this edition of The Week in Spandex, starting with Sony's big announcement that it's given the green light to two villain-centred spin-offs from its Amazing Spider-Man franchise in Venom and The Sinister Six. Venom didn't come as much as a surprise, seeing as Sony has been keen to get it off the ground for some time now, having attached Chronicle director Josh Trank before he jumped ship to another Marvel project in »

“Wanted” and “Kick-Ass” creator Mark Millar (left) just sold his latest comic book, the Flash Rogers-esque sounding “Starlight” to 20th Century Fox, continuing the prolific Scottish writer’s partnership with the studio. As you’ll recall, the studio previously set Millar as their comic book movie universe “consultant” (whatever that means). According to THR, Millar’s “Starlight”, which includes artwork by Goran Parlov, “centers on a space hero who saved the universe 35 years ago but came back to Earth, where no one believed his fantastic stories. He settled down, got married, had kids and got old, but then is called back for one last adventure when his old rocket shows up.” Simon Kinberg, who was recently tapped by Fox as their version of Joss Whedon, by overseeing their comic book properties including the “X-Men” line of movies, will produce “Starlight” — if and when it eventually gets made. Being that a »
Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. The holidays will pack an extra punch this year as Kick-Ass 2, the second installment in the irreverent action-comedy franchise, comes to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack including Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital HD with UltraViolet™ and On Demand on December 17, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The film will also be available on Digital HD on December 3, 2013.

There.s no denying the superhero comic adaptation is nearing a saturation point . for some it.s well past . and there is still an enormous wealth of characters that haven.t even entered the conversation yet. Kick-Ass co-creator Mark Millar.s next limited series Starlight isn.t going to come out until next year, but 20th Century Fox is in negotiations to acquire the title, beating out two other studios for the rights. Even though the film versions of Millar.s films have ranged only from decent to watchable, his comics are good enough for directors to keep working with. Oh, and speaking of superheroes, X-Men: Days of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg is on board to produce the film, and while some sites are reporting he.ll also be screenwriting, the superhero brainiacs at Latino Reviewbroke the news via Twitter and said he.s only attached as a producer, »
