Watch: Marvel's Official 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Teaser Trailer

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

"Now I am free... There are no strings on me." Well, after Hydra leaked this first teaser trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron a couple hours ago (it wasn't supposed to debut until next week after the new "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." episode on Oct 28th), Marvel just decided to bite the bullet and release it early, and we're really glad they did. This looks dark, awesome and action-packed. There's so much going on from James Spader's awesome taunting as "Ultron" to our heroes seemingly getting into a lot of troubling situations. Plus it has Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) & Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in action.

Whoa! Prosthetic Arm for Children Turns the Wearer into Iron Man

Iron Man Prosthetic Arm

While the internet is abuzz with the leaked trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron (we will not post until it's made officially available), we would like to call your attention to something else cool that's still Marvel-related. Being a kid can be tough in this day and age with all the social media, bullying, and all the coming-of-age stuff that is common for all generations. But it can be even harder for kids who find themselves at a disadvantage because they are missing a limb. One man hopes to give some of those kids a hand...literally. Pat Starace has created a working prosthetic hand that looks like it belongs to Iron Man.

Interview: 'The Overnighters' Director Jesse Moss Talks Making Docs

Jesse Moss

One of my favorite documentaries, in fact one of the very best documentaries this year, is one called The Overnighters from director Jesse Moss. The film follows a wild, almost unbelievable story set in North Dakota about a local Pastor named Jay Reinke who risks everything to help his new neighbors. It won over crowds at the Sundance Film Festival this year, picked up a Special Jury Prize, before going on to play at the Tribeca, Sheffield, Montclair, Sydney and New Zealand Film Festivals, winning awards at Full Frame, Miami and San Francisco, too. Drafthouse Films bravely picked up the doc and it's now playing in select theaters. I was lucky enough to meet up with Jesse Moss for an interview in New York last week and it was wonderful.

What?! Hendo Hover Vows to Produce Hoverboards by Fall of 2015

Hendo Hoverboards

Some people were duped and disappointed by the faux unveiling of the HUVr Tech hoverboards, which turned out to be completely fake. However, a new endeavor from a company called Hendo Hoverboards has been working on the real thing, and they're claiming to have real hoverboards ready for production by October 21st, 2015. But before you start getting excited about zooming around your town square, you should probably take some time to understand the technology at work, and realize that this won't exactly be like having a hovering skateboard that you ride around town on. But it's still pretty damn cool. Look now!

Air New Zeland Delivers Another Fun 'Hobbit' Centric Air Safety Video

The Hobbit

There's no doubt that New Zealand has become a popular travel destination thanks to the fact that the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy were filmed in the country. They've really embraced the allure this aspect brings to the country with a giant Gollum statue at the Wellington airport, not to mention other sculptures on hotels. Air New Zealand has been especially happy to have The Hobbit for promotion, previously creating a safety video with influences from the Middle-Earth fantasy and even putting the dragon Smaug on some of their planes. Now they've put together a new safety video with Peter Jackson.

Watch: Mark Wahlberg Bets Big in Red Band Trailer for 'The Gambler'

The Gambler

"A wise man's life is based around 'fuck you.'" After some first look photos surfaced earlier this month, we finally get a better look at the last minute awards contender The Gambler from Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt. A red band trailer for the film starring Mark Wahlberg has arrived, and it has one hell of a profanity-ridden monologue from John Goodman that gets us really excited to see this flick. Wahlberg plays an English professor and a high-stakes gambler who bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael K. Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. But things don't go so well. Watch!

First Look: Johnny Depp as The Wolf from Disney's 'Into the Woods'

Into the Woods

Not only did the first teaser trailer for Disney's adaptation of Into the Woods hold back any of the musical elements of the film, but it also didn't completely show us what Johnny Depp looks like as The Wolf in the fairytale fantasy. But this week, Entertainment Weekly has plastered the Disney film all over various covers of the latest edition of their magazine, and we finally get to see Depp in full wardrobe. For better or worse (we're going with the latter) he doesn't look like a wolf, but rather just appears to be Johnny Depp with weird facial hair and a big hairy suit. I have a feeling that's not going to work very well at all. Look below!

Watch: First 'Magician' Doc Trailer Focuses on Work of Orson Welles

Magician Doc Trailer

"I always liked Hollywood very much, it just wasn't reciprocated." Cohen Media has debuted the official trailer for a new documentary titled Magician about the one-and-only Orson Welles, the legendary filmmaker/actor/producer who left quite a legacy. While many of us are already very familiar with Orson, this doc spans his entire career looking at his tumultuous relationship with Hollywood and his impact on it featuring interviews with Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich, Frank Marshall, Anthony Perkins, Martin Scorsese, Sydney Pollack, Steven Spielberg and many others. This also comes on the same day as Welles' F for Fake hits Blu-Ray and we near his 100th birthday. It looks like a fun and fascinating doc for all to enjoy.

'Hobbit' Featurettes Show Benedict Cumberbatch's Smaug Mo-Cap

Benedict Cumberbatch

Last fall, before The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hit theaters, some images surfaced of Benedict Cumberbatch doing motion-capture performance work to bring the dragon Smaug to life, complete with some wild-eyed facial expressions. Then earlier this year, a featurette showed off how Weta Digital helped turn that performance into what we see on the big screen. Now with the extended cut of The Desolation of Smaug arriving on Blu-Ray on November 4th, some new featurettes of Cumberbatch's awesome work have surfaced online, and it's absolutely fascinating to see the actor dig into this peculiar character. Watch now!

Ray Fisher Had No Idea There Would Be a Standalone 'Cyborg' Movie

Ray Fisher

Just last week, we got official word from Warner Bros. Pictures as to which DC Comics titles we would see hit the big screen over the next six years, and when those films would arrive. The films that were furthest down the line were a reboot of Green Lantern and a standalone movie focusing on the yet to be revealed Justice League character Cyborg. Now we already know that young actor Ray Fisher is playing the character with a small introduction in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and presumably a bigger role in the two-part Justice League. But Fisher had no idea that his character would get his very own movie too.
