Exodus: Gods and Kings is your clear winner this week. They are marketing the living hades out of it, and best of all they are completely lying about what this movie is. What it is... a mess. The ads make it look like an action movie, but there's not all that much action in the first half. It's also long, and the recent history of "ancient action" isn't too solid. Look no further than Noah, 300: The Prequel, and Wrath of the Titans. This will make money, because it's the only new wide release, but it won't make silly money. I've given it $8k per theater to bring it in at $26.4 million. Chris Rock's Top Five is only getting 975 theaters, or else it might have been an actual contender. I have it coming in higher per theater than Exodus: Gods and Kings, but it won't be nearly enough. This »

Concept artist Peter Popken has designed concept art for many feature films like Monuments Men, Cloud Atlas, Wrath of the Titans, Hugo and of course, Alan Taylor's 2013 film Thor: The Dark World. Below, you can find six pieces of concept art from Marvel's sequel to Thor. I especially like the bottom three depicting London being torn to pieces during the climactic battle scene involving Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston) and his army of Dark Elves. Concept Art by Peter Popken Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe »
We reported last week that David Green (Earth to Echo) would be replacing Jonathan Liebsman as director for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and we can now confirm some of the previous rumours surrounding new character additions.
According to Omelete (via Collider), long-time adversaries Bebop and Rocksteady will appear in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, possibly alongside Casey Jones. A few months back we posted some concept artwork for Bebop and Rocksteady and were asked to remove them, prompting speculation that they would feature in the sequel.
Co-producer Brad Fuller also confirmed the return of April O’Neil, Vernon Fenwick and Shredder. No word yet on Krang.
This will be Bebop and Rocksteady’s first big-screen appearance. »

In 2009, the Internet went crazy over a rumor that Neil Patrick Harris would play The Flash in a big screen "Justice League" movie. That didn’t happen — Ezra Miller got the job and Harris settled with voicing the character in a direct-to-dvd animated film. But now it’s looking like "Gone Girl" costar could finally get a superheroic boost from the team behind CW’s "The Flash." They’ll be feeding Harris his lines when he takes on hosting duties for the 87th Academy Awards. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that writer, producer and director Greg Berlanti joins the team as head writer for his first Oscars telecast. The name should be familiar to anyone absorbed in comic book movie/TV sagas; Berlanti’s writing credits include the television series “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Everwood” and “Dawson’s Creek,” and the feature films “Wrath of the Titans” and “Green Lantern. »

Earlier tonight, actor Toby Kebbell (Dead Man's Shoes, Wrath Of The Titans, Warcraft) sent fans into a right tizzy when he revealed a few details about his take on Doctor Doom in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. It turns out this incarnation of the classic Marvel villain will be a computer programmer named Victor Domashev, and he will use the blogger ID "Doom". A lot of people were already on the fence about this movie, and this will surely have knocked 'em off on the "this sounds bloody rubbish" side of the garden. Here is the video interview, in which Kebbel also spills some new info on the voice he'll be using for Domashev. He says that was the one thing he felt he could fully influence, and though he's playing him with an American accent, he wanted to add in a foreign inflection. I always try to »

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.
