Tom Hardy is your new Max Rockatansky, while Charlize Theron is a cyborg arm.

Fans have been waiting for almost 30 years for a new installment in the cult classic Mad Max franchise, and Warner Bros. is finally releasing several new glimpses at the long-awaited film. In addition to the trailer (Watch), they put out a series of four new posters that show some of the insane costumes and vehicles that will populate Max's post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, a road warrior scraping by a meager existence out in the wastelands of a desolated world. Aided by only a shotgun in his struggle to survive, Max's world "is fire and blood," according to the recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con.

Are Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence Over?!

25 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Has Nicolas Hoult moved on to ... Riley Keough?!

Say it ain't so!

Looks like the rumors that X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars and real-life adorable couple Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are hitting a rough patch in their rekindled romance have picked up full steam again, with Page Six reporting that Hoult was spotted "snuggling up" to model/actress Riley Keough at No. 8's "Philo Prom" party in New York City Wednesday.

"They were sitting arm-in-arm in a booth with Adam Lambert and Charl Brown," Page Six quotes a source.

The pair "looked cozy," the eyewitness adds.

However, it could be that the two are just close co-stars, having worked together in the highly anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road.

Hoult, 24, and Lawrence, 23, began dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class, but broke up in January 2013, reportedly because Hoult was uncomfortable with Lawrence's »

Simon Kinberg on X-men: Apocalypse and Gambit

24 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

During an interview with Latino Review, X-Men screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked a little bit about what is coming for X-Men: Apocalypse, including some details about the Four Horsemen, as well as the status of Channing Tatum's Gambit.

The writer was asked if he sees the X-Men franchise as being a single narrative like Marvel Studios' different phases, and this was how he answered:

"We think about these X-Men movies as spread over – X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past to Apocalypse was imagined as a trilogy for us. It’s the Origin stories in some ways of Charles, Raven, Hank and Eric and we will be settling things up in Apocalypse that will be generating new stories. We look at it globally as to where to mutants fit into the world. That’s why we jump from the 60’s to the 70’s and now the 80’s. We really »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.

“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet. We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we »

Exclusive: Tom Woodruff Jr. Talks Harbinger Down and Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs

22 July 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With technology rapidly advancing in the world of filmmaking to the point where almost every theatrical genre film or big-budget blockbuster heavily relies on the use of CGI, it’s nice to see guys like Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alec Gillis of Amalgamated Dynamics still so committed to the artistry and necessity of practical effects in moviemaking.

Both icons in the world of special effects, Woodruff Jr. and Gillis have collectively worked on a vast array of hugely successful  and influential films throughout their careers, including The Terminator, Aliens, Cocoon, Predator, The Monster Squad, Pumpkinhead, Demolition Man, Tremors, Alien 3, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man, Jumanji, Spider-Man, Avp: Alien vs. Predator, and X-Men: First Class.

One of the recent projects the duo were a part of was Universal’s 2011 premake of The Thing, in which they were asked to create stunning practical creature effects to be used throughout production. Unfortunately, for both Woodruff Jr. »

Roberto Orci on the 'Power Rangers' Reboot

22 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It was recently announce that there will be a new big screen adaptation of The Power Rangers coming in 2016. Roberto Orci (Star Trek Into Darkness) will be executive producing, with Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) writing the script. 

IGN sat down with Orci and discussed what connections, if any, the new film will have with the old series. 

IGN: Presumably it's not tied to the 21-year of history of the show. Are you going to use the same characters from the original series?

Orci: One of the first things we did was learn and read... They have 600 pages of research that they have on their stuff. We read through the synopsis of everything they did and we are actually taking into account quite a bit of the canon in a real way. We're not just a leave it behind reboot.

Original Power Rangers cast members could have cameos in the upcoming movie reboot.

Executive producer Roberto Orci told IGN that the Haim Saban group would decide whether or not original cast members would appear in the movie.

"It's got a continuity within the world," he continued. "I can't tell you what, but it does have a continuity.
