New international posters for Disney’s Big Hero 6

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday brought us a new TV spot for Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6 [which you can watch here], and now a pair of new international posters have arrived online for the animated Marvel movie, which you can see here…

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams »

Paramount apologises and withdraws Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “9/11″ poster

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paramount Pictures has today apologised for a new poster promoting their new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, that accidentally made reference to the terrorist attacks on September 11.

The poster shows the four Turtles (Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo) jumping from the top of an exploding skyscraper, said to be from New York, above the Australian September 11 release date. In addition, the characters jumping from the building echoed some of the scenes from 9/11.

After receiving much criticism online, particularly on social media sites, Paramount has since withdraw the poster from its site, as well as Facebook and Twitter.

“Combining that image and date was a mistake,” Paramount Australia said. “We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia….We intended no offence and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use.”

Tj Miller Explains Why He'll Never Work With Director Michael Bay Again

13 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Tj Miller was cast in "Transformers: Age of Extinction," the biggest movie of 2014. But according to the actor, he'll never work with director Michael Bay again, mostly due to the helmer's crazy personality. "[Bay] has a specific way of communicating with people," he explained. "Once he said to me, 'Nothing that you've said is funny Tj! Not one thing all day! We hired you to be funny! There's 300 people here! None of them are laughing at you! Say something funny! I can still cut you out of the movie!' And I said, 'Michael, I would love that because then I would be able to leave right this instant!' And he said, 'Say something funny! You haven't even made the Make-a-Wish kids laugh!' To be fair to him, I hadn't, and they were standing there like, 'This... was not our wish.' Then the second the cameras stopped rolling he would say, »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer The Most Viewed Of 2014

29 July 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This weekend, the box office will be dominated by the marvelous appeal of Guardians of the Galaxy, a superhero tent pole that is earning wildly emphatic critical praise. But when it comes to winning the interwebs, that honor goes to a far saucier property. And it did it with plenty of sex appeal. THR reports that Fifty Shades of Grey's trailer has already amassed the most views of 2014, more than 36.4 million since it debuted on July 24th. These numbers were tabulated by the tech firm Zefr, which gave a breakdown of the runners-up as well. As you might expect, all of these were summer releases that boast loads of action and usually star power. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' first trailer has earned 31 million views. Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction's trailers each amassed 26.3 million views in their first weeks online. And lastly, Dumb and Dumber Too hit the 23.5 million mark. »

White hot! Nicola Peltz proved yet again that she's a worthy style crush.

The Dior frock featured a demure front with long sleeves but offered a hint of sexiness with the thigh-high side slit and open back with a lace-up detail. She skipped statement jewelry or brightly colored pumps for simple earrings and nude heels. In keeping with the classic [...] »

T.J. Miller is optimistic not to be working with Michael Bay again

29 July 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction came and delivered pretty much exactly what everyone thought it would, which is generally low ratings and about a billion dollars in worldwide grosses. This brings us to comedian Doug Benson who has been rocking a podcast appropriately titled Doug Loves Movies. In the most recent entry, T.J. Miller guest-starred and the topic of Transformers: Age Of Extinction came up. I think it'll come as no shock that Bay can be a little abrasive on-set, but Miller »

Fifty Shades of Grey: The most viewed trailer of 2014

29 July 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having only been released to the world on July 24th, the first trailer for the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey has now hit well over 36.4 million views on YouTube to become the most viewed trailer of the year so far, surely proving that it’s not only bored housewives who are curious about it.

The trailer dethroned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which had been the previous high with 31 million views back in March. The trailers for Gareth Edwards Godzilla reboot and Michael Bay’s Transformers 4: Age of Extinction share the third spot with 26.3 million views in it’s first week of release. Both meagre numbers in comparison considering how successful both blockbusters were.

Fifty Shades of Grey is based on the “controversial” novel of the same name by E.L. James that took the world by storm a few years ago, about an innocent young woman who falls »

BBFC launch a new cinema trailer for 12A movies

29 July 2014 3:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The BBFC have been under fire as of late by letting some movies pass at the 12A mark. Transformers: Age of Extinction, for example, passed at a 12A despite having violence, bad language and a joke about statutory rape.

The 12A was created in the UK in the early 2000s and was to allow for more access to 12 rated movies like The Bourne Identity and Spider-Man. The 12A means anyone can go to see the movie, as long as they are accompanied by an adult if they are under the age of 12. Through research conducted last year, the BBFC found that 75% of parents understood what the 12A rating meant.

In order to let parents know what the 12A rating means, the BBFC have launched a new advert which will be shown in cinemas in the UK this summer.

BBFC Director David Cooke said: “The 12A certificate is twelve years old »

China Box Office: Local Title 'Continent' Bows at $47 Million as 'Transformers' Exits on $317 Million High

28 July 2014 10:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Continent, a nostalgic road movie by the popular young Chinese novelist, heartthrob and blogger Han Han, has taken $47 million in its opening weekend in China, knocking Tiny Times 3.0, by another youthful Chinese director and writer, Guo Jingming, off the top of the charts. Domestic movies ran in solid numbers during a period when Hollywood movies are cleared from the schedules to make way for homegrown fare, but the success of Transformers: Age of Extinction, which has now ended its run in China as the first movie to pass the $300-million threshold there, highlighted the absence

China Box Office: $47 million ‘Continent’ Wins Weekend

28 July 2014 9:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – “The Continent,” the nostalgia trip movie by celebrity blogger and race driver Han Han, dominated the Chinese box office at the weekend and quickly ended the reign of “Tiny Times 3.”

Released on Thursday (July 24), “The Continent” delivered a super strong first day gross of $12 million, before going on to amass $47.1 million in its four day weekend run, according to local data source Entgroup. Rentrak estimates on Sunday had put it at $45 million.

That was fractionally lower than “Tiny Times 3” had managed the previous weekend, but is still a huge number for a first time film-maker, and once again proves the power of social media in China at motivating youth audiences.

“The Continent”‘s $47 million total also holds up well in comparison with the $43.9 million scored by “Lucy,” the top film at the North American box office, though “The Continent” enjoyed four full days of release, while »

‘Transformers’ breaks box office records in China: what it means for the international market

28 July 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction, Michael Bay’s fourth film in the franchise, broke a box office record in China this past weekend, surpassing $300 million and becoming the first ever film to do so.

The Hollywood Reporter had the news Sunday, noting that it puts Age of Extinction well on its way to breaking the $1 billion mark globally for the year and not far off from the $1.12 billion earned by Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

At first this news may not sound surprising. Bay made a movie set in China, loaded it with Chinese product placement, cast local Chinese actor Bingbing Li and utilized Chinese resources as part of the shoot, and the effort paid off handsomely.

But the bigger side of the story is that Age of Extinction is one of the first films that was released simultaneously with the American release, effectively minimizing some of China’s more rampant bootlegging of Hollywood movies. »

The first trailer for the much anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James' erotic drama "Fifty Shades of Grey" has racked up a stunning 36.4 million YouTube views since its release on Thursday. The stats come from technology firm Zefr which tracks the numbers.

Those numbers mean 'Shades' had the best opening week for any trailer in 2014, beating the 31 million views for the first "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" trailer in March, and high-profile trailer launches for "Godzilla" (26.3M), "Transformers: Age of Extinction" (26.3M) and "Dumb and Dumber Too" (23.5M).

The "Fifty Shades" trailer was released in time to play before copies of "Lucy" which topped the box-office this past weekend. 'Shades' arrives in cinemas on Valentine’s Day next year.
