One of the newest additions to the Avengers roster this year is Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen. The actress recently spoke to Empire magazine and gave a few details about her character’s powers and origins in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
She first talked about her approach to creating a unique version of the character: “The coolest thing about Scarlet Witch is, because you’ve never seen her, we got to create how she moves. Joss was really inspired by dancers, and so he knew that he wanted to change visually how she moves, to be more like a dancer than a fighter. I didn’t really have to do much stunt training. Instead I trained with a dancer, Jenny White, which was its own kid of soreness, but it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”

A ranking the 2014 Oscar-nominated films for their representation of girls and women. These are not “reviews” of the films! These are simply examinations of how well or how poorly they depict girls and women. (A movie that represents women well can still be a terrible film; a movie that represents women poorly can still be a great film. My reviews are linked from each rating page.)

In a time of enchantments when legends and magic collide, the sole remaining warrior of a mystical order (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges) travels to find a prophesized hero born with incredible powers, the last Seventh Son (Ben Barnes). Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom.
Academy Award nominee Sergei Bodrov (Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan, Nomad: The Warrior) directs Seventh Son from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt (upcoming In the Heart of the Sea, upcoming Warcraft) and Steven Knight (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Closed Circuit) and a screen story by Matt Greenberg (Reign of Fire).

Principal shooting has already begun on Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs movie, with production setting up shop in San Francisco earlier this month, and today, Universal confirmed the full list of casting choices set to portray the film’s leading roles.
As previously reported, the title role will be occupied by X-Men: Days of Future Past star Michael Fassbender — following Christian Bale’s abrupt departure — opposite Seth Rogen, who is on board to play the integral role of co-founder Steve Wozniak. This core cast will be rounded out by Jeff Daniels’ John Sculley, Avie Tevanian, Sarah Snook and Kate Winslet as a former marketing head.
But as previous reports had indicated, Boyle’s Steve Jobs film will place a heavy emphasis on the impact of the visionary’s first daughter, Lisa Brennan, who will be portrayed by Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, and Makenzie Moss at “various stages” of her life. »

To date, the X-Men franchise has spawned no less than seven movies and there are more on the way. Fox’s superhero brand has been going for fifteen years now and is showing no signs of slowing down.
The franchise began with 2000’s X-Men and continued most recently with X-Men: Days Of Future Past – two great offerings which currently act as metaphorical bookends to a series of films that have received a decidedly more mixed collective reception, from the brilliant X2 to the atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
In spite of the franchise’s undoubted overall success, given the sporadic nature of the movies’ release dates and the contradicting nature of some of the information within them, a number of questions and plot holes have been left by them.
Devout fans have tried to justify some of those plot holes with explanations of their own and, if these explanations were true, »

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.
We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery.
Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Even these basic facts are a little complicated. While the question »
Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm) and Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg
Today, the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four was released and director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and writer/producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) broke down that teaser trailer. Late last night, Collider released a lengthy interview with the filmmakers and a couple of set photos.
Lots of things in the interview are summed up in a quicker way in the teaser trailer break down. I've pulled three quotes that expand on the creative team's thinking, influences, and marketing tack, so check those out below.
Director Josh Trank
Trank on the film's early negative buzz and why they waited until now to release something.
"I think a lot of that stuff is stemming from the fact that we’ve consciously decided to not release anything official. This isn’t like The Avengers. Even when the first Avengers came out, there »

We've seen Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver in a few trailers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we haven't heard him speak or do anything other than stand and run. Empire interviewed him and we have a few excepts via Cbm.
Taylor-Johnson on Quicksilver's personality:
"He's very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him. He's quick at everything. He's quick to lose his temper."
Quicksilver's relationship with his sister, Scarlet Witch:
"It's more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he's very physical and very protective of her and she's very internal and always mothering him. Pietro doesn't f-ing trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the day will jump in front of a bullet for is his sister, Wanda."
On the accent he will have in the film:
"We all wanted to pull it back to the comic book. That's why we did East European accents. »

The teaser trailer for Fantastic Four was released very early this morning and if you haven't seen it you can watch it here. Trailers really are a film in its best form and I'm honestly impressed by what I've seen so far. This does not feel like a superhero movie but a science fiction movie, which makes sense when approaching how the powers of the team are attained.
Josh Trank, who directed Chronicle, and Simon Kinberg, who wrote X-Men: Days of Future Past, have a strong filmography. But over the course of production, deviation from the source material has brought out a lot of hate from geeks.
Trank and Kinberg sat down with Yahoo to break down the newly released trailer. The way they are approaching the movie plus the tone and quality of what I see in the trailer have me completely sold.

Spoiler alert, but Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was, in fact, not my favorite film of the year. I figured I should just get that out of the way at the start for those of you who feared I might have the same #1 film as Brad and Mike, both of whom listed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's latest as their favorite film from 2014. Don't get me wrong, I really liked Birdman, but in a surprise to even myself, it didn't make my list, which I think you can pretty much chalk up to the surprisingly good year 2014 wound up being. I was certainly among the scoffers last fall about it being a bit of down year, and just a month or so ago I was of the opinion 2014 offered a lot of films to like, but very few to love. After going through and finalizing my list, I'd like to retract that statement. »

Hot on the heels of last night's first look photo from the set of Fantastic Four, the new adaptation of the Marvel comic book, the teaser trailer for the film from director Josh Trank has arrived. It's been a long wait to see footage from this movie, but man, this looks pretty damn good. This doesn't even feel like a comic book movie, almost having the feel of an indie sci-fi flick. This looks impressive as hell, and I can't wait to see Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. Any worries there might have been about the quality of the film have been pushed away for now, and I'm excited to see this movie. Here's the first teaser trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four from 20th Century Fox: Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

20th Century Fox has released the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Four, and in all honesty, it actually looks like it could be really cool. A lot of fans have been dishing out hate on this movie since it was first announced, I'm curious to see what everyone thinks about it now that we have some footage to form an actual opinion. Director Josh Trank has given these characters a whole new origin, and it actually might work. I hoped this movie would turn out good, and now I'm excited to see more.

The Fantastic Four reboot has been shrouded in secrecy since day one. We may know who’s playing who, but the plot and looks of the characters have remained a mystery.The reboot admittedly has an impressive creative team in the form of director Josh Trank (Chronicle) and writer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), but that has done nothing to put the minds of anxious fans at ease. Even the great cast has left a lot of fans cold!
However, we’re finally getting an idea as to what we should expect from The Fantastic Four as the first teaser trailer for the movie has at long last been released! It certainly looks a lot different to the last Fantastic Four, with a much darker tone and vibe as we get a glimpse of the team’s pretty horrifying transformation.
Surprisingly, the teaser doesn’t really show any of them in action, »

The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just got bigger last week, with the additions of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as Storm, alongside Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. There is still very little we know about the story, except that it is set in the 1980s and will bring an end to the trilogy started by X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Access Hollywood caught up with Sophie Turner, who revealed how she learned that she won the role as Jean Grey, although it seems to have cost her a different, unspecified gig.
"I was getting out of the car to walk in to the audition. And then my agent started ringing and she was like 'Have you heard the news?' 'No, what news?' Then she was like 'Check your Twitter'. So then I checked it »
