From the wonderful teaser trailer to the most recent TV spot, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have given us plenty of glimpses at Minions, the animated spin-off of Despicable Me. However, so far we've pretty much only seen the titular little yellow guys in action. But that changes today as we finally get a first look at Scarlet Overkill, the villain voiced by Sandra Bullock, who becomes the minions' new evil boss, before they end up meeting Gru. Director Pierre Coffin says, "Scarlet is an unusual supervillain. She is a dangerously charming woman, which could not have been easy in the late 1960s."
Last fall, the first official viral site for Jurassic World launched, right along with the website for the film and the park itself. If you haven't checked out the Jurassic World website, you should go click around and explore. And that's because you might find something cool like the genetically modified hybrid dinosaur hinted at but barely seen in the first trailer for the film. Thanks to the website we now know that the new dinosaur is called Indominus Rex. We don't yet get to see the whole dino, as they're likely saving that for the movie, but we do get to see his teeth bared, and also where he's being kept in the park. Look below!
For anyone who has been wondering why we haven't seen anything from Josh Trank's new adaptation of Fantastic Four, we finally have an answer. The director participated in an exclusive interview with Collider to discuss the film and clear some things up about some troubling rumors about production, and the conscious decision to hold back any sort of marketing materials until they felt ready. Trank also discusses influences on the film, including David Cronenberg's The Fly, and we finally have an image from the set, showing off Michael B. Jordan in what appears to be the suit he will wear as Human Torch.
Right now director Alejandro González Iñárritu is riding the awards train after landing a nomination for Best Director and a nomination for Best Picture for his impressively shot film Birdman. But the filmmaker is already hard at work on his next film The Revenant, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is already slated for release this Christmas, and if the first look photos are any indicator, we could be looking at another awards contender in the making. The film sees DiCaprio facing the wilderness after he's abandoned by fellow fur trappers following a deadly bear attack. But he survives, and now he wants revenge.
Production on Now You See Me: The Second Act, the sequel to 2013's magician heist flick, has been happening for about five weeks now, and while there doesn't seem to be much to show off yet, a first look photo from the set has surfaced online. It's pretty much just a promotional shot showing the returning cast, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg (check out his hair after shaving it for Batman v. Superman), Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, along with villain Michael Caine, but they're also joined by Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan, who hasn't replaced Isla Fisher, but is playing a new character named Lula.
Though the teaser trailer for Ant-Man showed off a little bit of what we can expect from Marvel's second summer release this year, there was no glimpse of our villain, played by Corey Stoll, in the suit he eventually creates for himself to become Yellow Jacket. That's likely because much of the visual effects aren't finished (the sequences of a miniature Paul Rudd riding an ant in the trailer are from footage created for Comic-Con this past summer). But the good news is that we now have a glimpse at what Yellow Jacket will look like as a formidable opponent with some official concept art that has surfaced. Look now!
This weekend, Taken 3 hits theaters, and we hope this is truly the end for the series as the trailers and TV spots have indicated. But just because this may be the final chapter for Bryan Mills doesn't mean that Liam Neeson won't see more action. In fact, he's got another action thriller on the way this spring called Run All Night. The film teams Neeson up with Robocop reboot star Joel Kinnaman as father and son, as Jimmy (Nesson) is haunted by his criminal past, and only finds solace from his drinking. And soon, the past inevitably catches up with Jimmy, and his son ends up in danger as well. We have the first photos from the generic sounding new thriller, and they just as easily look like they could be from Taken 4 instead. Look!
Last month brought the first official image from this year's classic television adaptation The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Man of Steel lead Henry Cavill and Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer. We're still waiting for some kind of teaser trailer (though the film doesn't arrive until August, so we might be waiting a little while). But in the meantime, a second photo of our leading men has popped up, and it gives us a little comedic flare from the film directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch). It features Cavill and Hammer on a scooter, presumably somewhere in Europe, maybe in the middle of a chase. Look below!
Before the end of 2014, we got word that the once trouble western Jane Got a Gun was being delayed yet again. The film was initially set for release last August, but was delayed to February 20th, 2015. And the latest news revealed it had been pushed back another six months to September 4th, 2015. But it seems this release date might stick, and now we have some first look photos from the film starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. It looks pretty much how you'd expect a western to look. No sign of Ewan McGregor yet, but he may be in that photo of what is likely the gang giving Portman and Edgerton trouble.
After seeing the first photo of Jessica Chastain in Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming horror film Crimson Peak, we now have a glimpse of two more co-stars from the gothic haunted house flick. Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) also star in the film about a young woman (Wasikowska) who is swept off by her feet by a charismatic suitor (Hiddleston) and taken back to his ancestral home. There she finds more than she bargained for, including a jealous sister (Chastain) and more than a few skeletons in the closet. With del Toro at the helm, we're definitely excited.
Just last month we got yet another new piece of concept art from Pixar Animation's forthcoming fall release of The Good Dinosaur. The film has had some trouble coming together, but recently named Peter Sohn as the official director after the Pixar brain trust took it over from director Bob Peterson (Up) to overhaul the animated story of a dinosaur who befriends a boy. Now another piece of concept art has surfaced for the film, and of course, it's just beautiful. Since the film doesn't come out until next fall, we probably won't get a teaser trailer for this prehistoric adventure until Pixar's Inside Out hits theaters on June 19th. Look now!
The mountain climbing drama Everest doesn't arrive until next fall, and it's one of our 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. But so far we've only seen one photo from the film that has quite an impressive cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Hawkes as climbers facing the titular monster mountain that has claimed many lives. Now a new photo has surfaced from the film with Gyllenhaal as the most prominent climber. And while I'm pretty sure that's Brolin on the far right of the image (see it below), it's difficult to decipher just who is standing next to him. Look below!
Next year, Superman and The Lone Ranger are teaming up to fight an international enemy in the adaptation of the classic TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement). Henry Cavill plays CIA agent Napoleon Solo while Armie Hammer plays KGB agent Illya Kuryakin, and the two must put aside a rivalry to stop the evil THRUSH, an organization opposed by Russia and the United States. Now we have a first look at the film, and it looks rather stylish. However, I can't help but be reminded of films like The Avengers (1998) and Get Smart as mediocre TV spy adaptations. Look below!
We've already seen Amy Poehler and Tina Fey make a splash on "Saturday Night Live" but their team-up on the big screen in Baby Mama left something to be desire, despite being moderately amusing. But their next project coming next winter might be just what the doctor ordered. Formerly known as The Nest, the comedy is now called Sisters, and follows the comedienne duo as thirtysomething sisters coming home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale, so they decide to spend one more wild weekend together there, bonding, feuding and finally growing up. And today, we have the first photo from the film. Look now!
