First Look: Denzel Washington & Chloe Grace Moretz in 'The Equalizer'

The Equalizer

Following last week's teaser poster for the upcoming action thriller The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, a couple more first look photos have emerged online. One gives us another look at Washington as the titular character (who may havehad a viral classified ad placed in the New York Times), and the other shows him along with our first glimpse at Chloe Grace Moretz, the girl that brings The Equalizer out of retirement. Since this is coming from Columbia Pictures, we're betting the first trailer will arrive with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but it should arrive online before then, so stay tuned. Photos below!

Filming Underway on Alan Taylor's New 'Terminator: Genesis' Movie


Though Paramount Pictures has yet to confirm any of the casting news for the forthcoming franchise reboot Terminator: Genesis, that's not stopping the studio from announcing the start of production. Paramount never even took the time to reveal that Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor would be at the helm of this first film in a new trilogy, but that little detail has indeed been confirmed in the first photo revealed from the set as cameras roll on the first shot of the film's production schedule. It's just a shot of the first clapboard on set, showing that the cover title for the film is Vista, so but that's all we can see. Look below!

First Look: Michael Fassbender Holds Marion Cotillard in 'Macbeth'


While Natalie Portman was once slated to star alongside Michael Fassbender in the latest big screen adaptation of the classic William Shakespeare play Macbeth (or "that Scottish play" for all you theater folk), it's Marion Cotillard who ended up in the lead role as the lady of a Scottish lord who aspires to be king. Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel, who directed a segment in the Aussie omnibus The Turning, is at the helm of this feature adaptation, and we have two first look photos that look gorgeous. One features Fassbender embracing Cotillard, while the other has General Macbeth clearly ready for battle. Look below!

First Look: Bérénice Bejo in Hazanavicius' Cannes Film 'The Search'

The Search

In 2011, French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius and his wife, actress Bérénice Bejo, became the toast of Cannes when they premiered the B&W silent film The Artist (my glowing review), which went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars. Now three years later, Hazanavicius and Bejo are back with another film, titled The Search, which was just announced to play In Competition at Cannes 2014 next month. Leading up to the film's premiere in May, the first photo has been unveiled. The project was shot in secret last year and is a remake of an old 1948 WWII film, but contemporarized and set in Chechnya instead. Check it out below.

Ellar Coltrane Growing Up in New Photos from Linklater's 'Boyhood'


Following an impressive and acclaimed premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, director Richard Linklater is bringing his 11-year long project Boyhood to theaters this summer. And while we're still waiting for the first trailer to show up, some new photos form the coming-of-age epic have arrived, showing off young Ellar Coltrane as he grows up from a young boy to a teenager. The film follows Mason (Coltrane) from age six to eighteen as he deals with the trials and tribulations of divorced parents, girls, disappointing authority figures and more. But it's not a greatest hits collection of boyhood as much as a raw look at growing up. Besides seeing Coltrane grow, it's also cool to see Ethan Hawke age over the years. Look!

First Look: Ryan Gosling's Odd Cannes Directorial Debut 'Lost River'

Ryan Gosling

There's no doubt that Ryan Gosling has come a long way since The Notebook. While the romance is revered by many, and Gosling's performance is nothing to scoff at, the kind of films he's taken on since then have been completely different to say the least, leaning more towards the artistic and striking like Drive, Only God Forgives and The Place Beyond the Pines. Now we'll see what Gosling can do behind the camera as he makes his directorial debut with Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster). The film was announced to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month, and now we have the first photo with star Christina Hendricks that looks unlike anything we would ever expect Gosling to make. Look!

First Look: Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac in Sci-Fi 'Ex Machina'

Ex Machina

Though Dredd may not have fared as well as some hoped, writer Alex Garland is set to redeem himself by taking a turn directing with the sci-fi flick Ex Machina. Garland behind the scripts for Never Let Me Go, Sunshine and 28 Days Later, all unique films with great stories. As for Ex Machina, this one follows a love triangle between two men and a beautiful robot girl. That's definitely unlike anything we've seen before, and now we have a first look at the film with stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). No sign of the robot girl (Alicia Vikander) just yet, but we're certainly intrigued.

Check Out the Official Posters for Deep Sea Diving Thriller 'Pioneer'


When your ultimate adventure becomes your ultimate nightmare. If you're into deep sea diving conspiracy thrillers, then we've got the perfect film for you. Titled Pioneer, this Norwegian thriller is about a team of divers who were part of risky experiments at the start of the Norwegian oil-drilling industry in the early 80s. The cast includes Aksel Hennie plus Wes Bentley, Stephen Lang, Jonathan LaPaglia, Stephanie Sigman and Jørgen Langhelle. The film already premiered in Europe last year and has been waiting for a US release, however io9 has debuted a new US poster and we thought it was worth sharing to bring some attention to this interesting little film. I'm intrigued by all the imagery, but I'm not sure if it'll be any good.

Caesar Gets Shotgun in New 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Photos

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Not too long ago, some production photos from the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes surfaced showing the motion-capture suited actors behind the simian characters riding horses and handling some hefty guns. But now we have some new photos from the film featuring the fully rendered apes played by Andy Serkis, Toby Kebbell and more. Plus, we also get some more shots of Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Kirk Acevedo. There's one shot in particular that should tickle your fancy with Caesar looking like he's ready to hold-up a 7-11 or something. The footage shown at CinemaCon last month wowed plenty, and we're hoping for a new theatrical trailer soon. Look!

First Look: More of Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence in 'Serena'


It's been nearly two years since we got a first look at the new drama Serena from director Susanne Bier (In a Better World).

The film follows the Pemberton couple, Boston natives who create a 1929 timber empire in North Carolina, as their intense, passionate marriage begins to unravel as the story moves toward a shocking reckoning. New photos below!

First Look: Scarlett Johansson Armed & Dangerous in Besson's 'Lucy'


Next weekend, we'll see Scarlett Johansson kick ass again as Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And while her role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015 is said to be substantial (with the hope of her own spin-off), audiences won't have to wait too long to see Johansson back in action. The actress leads Lucy, a new action thriller from director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional), and we have the first photo before a trailer arrives on April 2nd. Johansson plays a woman caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and becomes a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

First Look: New 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Production Photos

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Following last year's teaser for the anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we're due for a new look at the summer release. And while we're not sure when the new trailer will hit (though X-Men: Days of Future Past would be a good time to debut a new trailer), we have some new behind the scenes photos showing Andy Serkis and Toby Kebbell in the motion capture suits used to create their ape performances as a guide for visual effects artists. There's another shot of Serkis on horseback speaking with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell, but the more interesting shots have the ape actors holding big guns. Look!
