If you've been keeping an eye on the set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past week, then you'll know that Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury appears to find himself on the wrong side of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division in the upcoming Marvel sequel, and a new batch of images have arrived online via The Daily Mail, which show a bloodied and bruised (former?) S.H.I.E.L.D. director...
This isn't the first time we've seen trouble within S.H.I.E.L.D., with a batch of set photos last month showing Chris Evans' Steve Rogers and Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow confronting S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) - check them out here.

- Flickering Myth
Brooklyn, N.Y. -- At the Nitehawk Cinema in New York's Williamsburg neighborhood, all the meals are served and eaten in the dark, lit only by the flickering images on the screen. Menu items like mussels, owner Matthew Viragh learned, don’t go over so well in the dim lighting. But finger foods? A huge hit.
The Nitehawk has been open for less than two years, but already the dine-in theater is making profits. In the movie theater business, the typical revenue per customer from concessions is around $5 per ticket holder. But at Nitehawk, that amount is triple that, said Viragh, who sold more than 150,000 tickets last year. At his theater, tickets cost $11.
The success of the Nitehawk is a refreshing turnaround tale for the movie theater business. For years, small independent theaters -- think the lone single-screen in a small town -- have declined due to competition from mall multiplex theaters, »

It was announced yesterday that Spike Jonze's mysterious new movie, "Her," about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his Siri-like operating system, would be released by Warner Bros on November 20th. And today it was revealed that two previously unreported, very exciting cast members will make appearances in Jonze's film: Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt.
It is unclear, of course, what roles the actors play (although it is conceivable that Johansson could voice the computer, especially if the settings on the computer call for "breathlessly sexy"). They join previously announced cast members Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, and Olivia Wilde. This is going to be good.
Pratt, of course, stars in the hilarious NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation" but has been making inroads with his big screen career, playing one of the guys who killed Bin Laden in last year's amazing "Zero Dark Thirty, »

Chicago – “Mama” isn’t exactly an original piece (it borrows heavily from horror archetypes, particularly those that turned Asian horror into a trend) but it isn’t always the originality of the composition but how well it’s played that matters. “Mama” is, mostly, well-played. The atmosphere brought to it by director Andy Muschietti, the character depth provided by Jessica Chastain, the brilliant touch of producer Guillermo Del Toro — “Mama” deliveres. Mostly. Some decisions made in the CGI department are disappointing but there’s still a lot to like here. Definitely worth a rental.
On the cusp of the 2008 economic crash, a man kidnaps his two daughters and attempts to kill them in a remote cabin before he’s destroyed by a supernatural force. The two girls survive with the apparition that they name Mama until they’re found by the man’s twin brother (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and brought »

Late last fall, details of Spike Jonze's most recent film with Joaquin Phoenix finally had some story details and a title locked down. Her is a quirky romance following Theodore (Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system (not unlike iPhone's Siri) designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all. And now the film has a release date. More below! Erc Box Office (via SlashFilm) says Her will hit theaters on November 20th this year, which likely means it has a chance at landing some awards for Annapurna Pictures, the same company behind last year's Zero Dark Thirty.

The story revolves around mob boss Whitey Bulger, a ruthless Boston kingpin who inspired movie characters such as the one Jack Nicholson played in The Departed and the one Pete Postlethwaite played in The Town. The movie is based on the 2001 Dick Lehr/Gerald O’Neill New York Times bestseller Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob.
Bulger was also an FBI informant so he could help discreetly take down a rival gang. In the end, the tables were turned on him, and he was double crossed and prosecuted by the Feds, along with his partner in crime and the original FBI agent working with him. Edgerton will play John Connolly, the "FBI agent and childhood »

In the movie business, the label “art film” isn’t always a deal-breaker.
Nowhere is this more apparent than at Cannes, where films that might seem obscure to your average Hollywood studio executive rack up worldwide presales and receive the kind of attention devoted to Brad Pitt strolling down the Croissette.
Consider some of the filmmakers in this year’s lineup: Sofia Coppola, James Gray, Alexander Payne, Roman Polanski, James Toback. They’re not exactly synonymous with blockbusters, but in the realm of global film financing, their names attract coin — at the right budget and with key cast attached.
Producers and financiers say the principal ingredients to getting these movies made are much the same as they were in the past: packages that yield foreign presales, securing locations that provide soft money and tax incentives, and foraging around for ways to cover the risk against the lack of domestic distribution. »

Johnny Depp now has a co-star in the form of Joel Edgerton of the upcoming Whitey Bulger biopic, Black Mass. Detailing the life story of the Boston crime boss, the film will have Depp starring as Bulger while Edgerton will play John Connolly, “an FBI agent and childhood pal of Bulger tasked with bringing down the Italian mob, but instead helped out his pal and eventually paid the price.”
This is another huge score for Edgerton, who has seen his profile rise considerably ever since 2010′s Animal Kingdom. In recent years, he’s had solid roles in films like Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty, Wish You Were Here and The Great Gatsby. He’s quickly turning into one of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men and his role in Black Mass will no doubt add another impressive credit to his resume.
I’m not too familiar with Whitey Bulger or his story, »

Since he broke through in 2010 with the Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom, Aussie Joel Edgerton has been steadily forging a reputation as a captivating actor. From Academy Award-nominated follow-ups like Warrior and Zero Dark Thirty to more mainstream fare like Baz Luhrmann's flashy adaptation The Great Gatsby, Edgerton is gaining momentum. (I'd argue he's the best part of Gatsby, bringing a surprising depth and sex appeal to the mostly loathsome character Tom Buchanan.) Deadline reports he'll soon be stepping up to play a romantic lead opposite Michelle Williams in The Double Hour. A remake of an Italian psychological thriller starring Kseniya Rappoport and Filippo Timi, The Double Hour centers on a pair of lovers (Williams and Edgerton) who meet during a speed dating event. She's a maid; he's a former cop, and soon they are on their way to a romantic weekend in a country cottage. However, once they »
Stars of television and the silver screen are among the cast line-up in a major new feature film set that began shooting in London last week. The ensemble cast, featuring some of the British Asian community’s most recognised celebrities alongside talented newcomers and familiar home-grown talent, will collaborate on the film, which celebrates multiculturalism within the UK.
Amar Akbar & Tony, is an independent production by writer and first-time film director Atul Malhotra, which embodies and celebrates the unique and vibrant landscape of the UK. A comedy drama with a highly original plotline and cleverly developed script, Amar, Akbar & Tony is scheduled for release later this year.
The title alludes to the 1970s Bollywood classic (Amar Akbar and Anthony) and revolves around the strong bond of friendship akin to brotherhood between the three main characters. But that is where the similarities with the Bollywood film ends. Amar, Akbar & Tony is »

Sims released this tweet shortly after the news broke:
“I’ve had to keep this secret for nearly two months. It’s out! No…I don’t play an ape.”
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in the last film, reprises his role as Caesar. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes also stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, »

Coming fast on the heels of revelations confirming that the CIA indeed had a hand in shaping the script for Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, here's documentarian Michael Singh's examination of the ways U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East is tightly tied to the images of Arabs and Muslims that appear in American and European media. A crash course in history, politics, and social science, Valentino's Ghost is both sobering and illuminating, and its execution is thrilling. Singh deftly weaves newspaper articles, interviews with academics (Harvard's Niall Ferguson, George Washington University's Melani McAlister), and archival newscasts, with clips from films including Rudolph Valentino's silent classic The Sheik, Otto Preminger's Exodus, and 2000's Rul »
