In case you didn't know, Samuel L. Jackson is playing the President of the United States of America in a new movie called Big Game. No, this isn't some outlandish grindhouse movie where the president is a bad ass motherfucker, but instead, the movie is described as Air Force One meets The Grey, where the Commander in Chief finds himself stranded in the wilderness when his signature plane is shot down by terrorists. In the vast landscape of nature, a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) is the only one in the area who is able to help the president survive. This sounds like it could be damn cool, and as the eight-week production overseas in Bavaria is coming to a close, we have a first look photo from the film!
Following a new poster yesterday, two new images for Marvel's sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier have just arrived before the new trailer hits tomorrow at 12pm ET. We get a good look at Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans)new uniform as he has a chat with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) looking at something off screen. And also, there's an overhead shot following a fight where Captain America has just taken out nearly a dozen guys who tried to ambush him in an elevator (we saw this scene at Comic-Con and it was fantastic). We can't wait to see what the teaser trailer brings tomorrow, so make sure to come back.
The fastest man on two wheels. The biggest liar of our time. The greatest downfall in sports history. He is many things, and his story will be scrutinized and discussed for many years to come. In addition to the documentary about cyclist Lance Armstrong being released this year, titled The Armstrong Lie from Alex Gibney, a couple of different competing feature films telling his story are in the works. One of them, directed by Stephen Frears, just started shooting a few days ago with Ben Foster starring and our first look has already arrived. I can hardly tell that is Foster beneath the jersey and cap, but apparently it is. Take a look.
Following the silly and disappointing action comedy This Means War, actress Reese Witherspoon has taken some less than glamorous roles on the big screen. From Mud to the recently premiered The Devil's Knot, the actress is really working her acting muscles to the max. Next year, we'll see her in Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, but right now she's filming Wild, an adaptation of Chery Strayed's novel of the same name about a woman decides more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail all by herself in an effort to leave her self-destructive life and depression behind her. Now we have the first photo from the Fox Searchlight film already in production featuring Witherspoon hiking on the set in Oregon. Look below!
There's always room for more submarine movies. The next one in production now is titled Black Sea, a thriller about a down-on-his-luck sub captain who takes a job on a ship that's supposedly filled with gold. The project is filming now and Entertainment Weekly has unveiled three photos of Jude Law, who stars as Capt. Robinson. Director Kevin Macdonald calls out a few other iconic sub films: Run Silent, Run Deep (1958) and Das Boot (1981). "They're incredibly tense, exciting films because of the claustrophobia and the sense that you're somewhere you shouldn't be. Like in space, if something goes wrong, you're dead," he says.
In the summer of 2012, we got our first glimpse at the computer animated versions of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the DreamWorks Animation of the classic cartoon short from "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" in the late 1950s. The film was originally slated to hit theaters this year, but layoffs at the animation studio resulted in a delay that will see the film arrive on March 14th, 2014. With the film on the horizon, we have some new photos from the actual film this time, which likely means a trailer is just around the corner. We get our first glimpse of the WABAC machine, Sherman's friend Penny and their adventures in Egypt. Look!
A new year wouldn't be complete without a film from Woody Allen. This year he brought the entrancing and spectacularly acted Blue Jasmine to audiences, and it's no surprise that he's already at work on his film for 2014. We knew the film would star Emma Stone and Colin Firth, and now we have the first images from the film which Sony Pictures Classics have released, along with the title Magic in the Moonlight. As always, we don't have any plot details, but the project takes place in the South of France and has been described as a romantic comedy that spans about 20 years, taking place throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
"Mahalo!" Yet another clapboard photo - the universal sign of "we are shooting now" and quickly becoming the only thing director's can share from a movie set without getting in trouble (aside from photos of their chair). Shooting has started on filmmaker Cameron Crowe's next movie set in Hawaii, the one originally titled Deep Tiki, or Volcano Romance (it's currently Untitled). Yet another romantic comedy, this one stars Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone and involves a military contractor sent to Hawaii to supervise the launch of a spy satellite who falls for his Air Force superior. More photos on the way now that it's in production. Crowe posted a shot of the clapboard online to let everyone know filming has begun.
Following the first photo from the set of Fast & Furious 7 while production was filming in Louisiana, star Vin Diesel also used a photo to confirm that Kurt Russell was on set as one of the film's villain. Now we get a taste of the other villain in the sequel with a photo that director James Wan posted online. The credits bump at the end of Fast & Furious 6 revealed that Ian Shaw (Luke Evans) had a brother who wasn't too pleased that Dom (Diesel) and his crew had dispatched with fatally, and that vengeful brother is played by Jason Statham. This new photo gives us a look at The Transporter's slick ride: a gorgeous Aston Martin.
After completing The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy with The World's End this past summer, director Edgar Wright is wasting no time getting back behind the camera. As everyone knows by now, the director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is taking on Marvel's Phase Three film Ant-Man. The film was teased at Comic-Con a couple years ago with a special effects test, but since then a leading man to play the title character has not been announced, and we've been unsure as to when the film would begin production. Well, today Wright posted a photo showing he's working on the film, but what does this mean?
With a release date set for June 13th, 2014, production on the action comedy sequel 22 Jump Street began today, and Sony Pictures made the official announcement without revealing anymore cast members besides Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube reprising their roles. The press release doesn't offer much in the vein of plot details either saying, "In the action-comedy 22 Jump Street, after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But we do have some cool photos from the set. Look now!
Though we've had two official photos from the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, they haven't been photos from the actual film. The most recent shot featured director Michael Bay behind the camera while debris exploded around him and the crew, and the first featured Bay looking like Peter Pan as cast members Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor looked on, waiting to shoot a scene. Now we have the first photo from the film itself with Wahlberg and Reynor featured, and this time they're joined by female lead Nicola Peltz, who looks almost unrecognizable as she's grown up since The Last Airbender in 2010. Look!
Starting with the darker side of things on this Disney musical? Shooting only recently began in the UK on Rob Marshall's new movie for Disney titled Into the Woods, based on the Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine. This has a very eccentric and funky cast playing all kinds of fairy tale roles, but out of all of them to get a first look before any of the others, we have Meryl Streep. And she plays "The Witch", not labeled as "evil" but she certainly has that look. EW.com unveiled the first look at Streep in Into the Woods, and will likely have more photos of the rest of the cast soon enough. Until then, take a gander.
Following the teaser poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction, we have another photo from the set of the blockbuster sequel. The first official photo showed cast members Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor on set with director Michael Bay, and now it's the filmmaker behind such hits as Armageddon and Bad Boys who takes center stage. A new photo posted on the director's official Twitter feed looks like it was generated for a photoshoot in a magazine, but it's actually just a stellar photo from the set as Bay is behind the camera, shooting some sort of epic destruction. Looks like he's having a blat on his final Transformers film. Look!
