Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.
I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;
“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Easily one of the best films of the year so far, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is coming to blu-ray in just a couple months and Fox has revealed all the special features you can expect upon its release. Come inside for all the details!
When I first saw Kingsman in theaters, I called it "the first genuine must-see movie of the year" and my opinion on that hasn't changed in the least. It's an incredible film that manages to hit all the right notes. If you missed it in theaters (for shame), or simply can't wait to see it again, Fox has revealed the details on the upcoming blu-ray release on June 9th-or digitally on May 15th.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment invites you to join Kingsman: The Secret Service when it hits Digital HD™ May 15 and Blu-ray™ and DVD June 9. Matthew Vaughn, director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

A never-before-seen passage from “A Wrinkle in Time” has hit the web. For those eagerly (or hesitantly) anticipating the Disney movie adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved sci-fi/fantasy book, the question arises, Could these newly discovered pages influence the direction of the film? “A Wrinkle in Time” — which would be likely classified as Ya today, though L’Engle once said her books were for people, not just children — follows 13-year-old Meg Murray and her wunderkind five-year-old brother Charles Wallace as they traverse between planets to find their missing scientist father. Jennifer Lee, who co-directed “Frozen,” is set to pen the script for Disney’s upcoming big screen take on the book. Last week, The Wall Street Journal posted the cut passage, three typewriter-composed pages discovered by L’Engle’s granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. In these pages, which you can read here, Meg asks her father how the Black Thing (pure evil Mr. »

We know the story is set in the 1980s, but very few plot details have been confirmed at this point. The movie, set for release on May 27, 2016, will also be bookended by two new movies that take place within the X-Men cinematic universe, Deadpool (February 12, 2016) and Gambit (October 7, 2016). Writer/producer Simon Kinberg revealed some new details about the upcoming installments.
"That has the same kind of integration. It's a smaller group. All of the films are aware of each other. I know what's happening in each story, of each of the movies and they certainly acknowledge each other. Things that happen in one film are acknowledged by the other movies.

There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »

Thought ditching the old-timers from X-Men: Days of Future Past would make X-Men: Apocalypse a bit less cumbersome? Maybe so, but there are still members of the younger cast roster signing on for the new movie.
