We've seen just one photo from the forthcoming drama The Judge starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, but with the film arriving in October of this year, there's likely a trailer coming right around the corner. In the meantime, one more photo has shown up that fits more in line with the title of the film as it finds Downey and Duvall sitting in court. Downey plays an attorney returning to his hometown for his mother's funeral. Although Duvall's character is the town judge, he's also the only suspect in a murder and Downey must balance the many years of estrangement and emotional distance in order to find the truth.
The childhood favorite bear Paddington is hitting theaters in the United Kingdom this fall, but it arrives not too long afterwards here in the United Sates in December. We've already seen a teaser trailer, but it didn't give us a full look at the raincoat donning bear. Now a couple first look photos have surface showing the bear in front of Buckingham Palace and also getting into some mischief on top of a refrigerator in the kitchen. Still photos of visual effects never look all that great, but there's something about the bear's face that doesn't quite work, and it seems to be the eyes lacking life. Hopefully he looks better in action. Look!
Besides having the trademark mutton chops and hair as Wolverine in all of the X-Men films, Hugh Jackman doesn't usually have to drastically change the style of his hair, both on his head and on his face. Les Miserables required a drastic transformation, but otherwise, he's mostly looked like himself. Now Jackman has shown off a new bald and bearded look as the villain Blackbeard in Pan, the new adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic fantasy adventure from director Joe Wright. Jackman had a full head of hair at the Tony awards last weekend, but now he has a clean-shaven head. Or maybe it's a really good bald cap. Look!
Just a few months ago we learned that Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke would star in a new thriller called Regression, marking a return to genre filmmaking by Alejandro Amenábar. Now the film has just wrapped principal photography, and TWC-Dimension has just released the first photo from the film. It's not an exciting still, but Watson certainly seems to be in distress as Hawke attempts to comfort her. This certainly seems to be a character driven drama as the story follows a detective (Hawke) investigating the accusation that a young woman (Watson) has made against her father for a horrifying crime. Look below!
If you new designs for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles haven't tickled your fancy, you'll be happy to know that the look for their arch nemesis Shredder and their mentor Splinter are right on the money. We've seen brief glimpses of both in the first and second teaser trailers, but thanks to some new concept art, we get a good look at the designs for the latest iteration of the characters that started in comic books. Idle Hands got ahold of an early copy of of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History, and in the book there's two images showing off Shredder with blades all over, and a very realistic Splinter. Look!
Unfortunately, we won't be seeing Carey Mulligan on the big screen at all this year, but that doesn't mean the actress isn't working this year. The Great Gatsby star has a lead role in Suffragette as Maude foot soldier of the early feminist movement who turns radical and begins using violence for change. Now we have the first photo from the film showing Mulligan spiritedly cheering at a feminist really, and co-stars Helena Bonham Carter and Anne-Marie Duff are beside her. Are they attending the rousing speech that Meryl Streep was hired to give as iconic political activist Emmeline Pankhurst? It's certainly possible. Look below!
Though the next film from Guillermo del Toro as a director is Crimson Peak, and that's not arriving until 2015, we'll still get a project that will have a special touch from the revered filmmaker. The Book of Life is a new animated film from Fox Animation coming this fall, and while we've seen some concept art from the project directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, the first official stills have arrived, showing off a unique animation style. The male characters look a bit like boxy marionettes, which is a bit weird, and I can't decide if I really like it or not. But the settings look gorgeous, and again, it sounds like a truly original tale. Images below!
Want to be in the new Star Wars movie? Here's your chance. J.J. Abrams has posted a video announcing a partnership with UNICEF to form the "Star Wars: Force for Change" and host a contest to win a chance to actually be in Star Wars: Episode VII, which just started shooting. Aside from this very exciting contest, which you can enter right here, the video was filmed on the Abu Dhabi set of Episode VII, and as far as we know, it's Tatooine. Or at least another desert planet like Tatooine, since we don't want to jump the gun. There's even an amusing alien creature who stumbles into the background midway through. Check this out!
Ever since getting a first look at San Fransokyo, we've been waiting to see more of Walt Disney Animation and Marvel's first animated big screen collaboration Big Hero 6. With the release of the first trailer coming on Thursday, the first images from the film have finally arrived, giving us a first look at the young robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his best friend, a robot named Baymax. So far we only know that T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph and Jamie Chung are providing voices, so hopefully the first trailer will reveal the rest of the cast. Either way, seeing the first animated Marvel comic adaptation on the big screen has us excited.
As the cast of Pitch Perfect 2 is adding new members like True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld (who could inherit the franchise if there's a Pitch Perfect 3) and "Futurama" and "Sons of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal as her mother, rehearsal for the film are already underway with the Barden Bellas. We saw some photos with some of the cast at rehearsal when Steinfeld was cast in the film, but now a much better photo from behind the scenes has popped up, complete with returning cast members Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow with the rest of the female a capella team, including director Elizabeth Banks. Look below!
Though Adam Driver is across the pond shooting Star Wars: Episode VII, later this year we'll see the actor in Shawn Levy's dysfunctional ensemble comedy This is Where I Leave You, an adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's novel of the same name. And as you'll see in the photo of most of the principal cast below. Driver is far from being the biggest name in the roster as the film also features Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Ben Schwartz, Timothy Olyphant, Corey Stoll, Abigail Spencer, Aaron Lazar, Debra Monk and Jane Fonda. The story follows a dysfunctional family that is forced to come together and sit shiva when their father passes away. Look now!
Later this year, The Hunger Games franchise continues with Mockingjay - Part I, the first in a two-part finale of the international young adult sci-fi sensation starring Jennifer Lawrence. After The Hunger Games: Catching Fire left us on a bit of a cliffhanger, we're eager to continue the story. The first teaser poster arrived pretty early, and now a cool new official website has arrived, giving us our first look at the film with an image featuring Julianne Moore as President Coin as she speaks with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee. There's also a shot of Jeffrey Wright as the brilliant Beetee, seemingly in the same scene, and an extensive interview with Moore about starring in the film. Look below!
Though director Tom Tykwer's team up with Andy & Lana Wachowski on Cloud Atlas may not have turned into a box office hit, critics and those who saw it have found a fantastic sci-fi epic. Now Tom Hanks is reteaming with Tykwer for the filmmaker's latest project, A Hologram for the King. Based on Dave Eggers' bestselling book of the same name, the film follows a a struggling businessman named Alan Clay (Hanks) in a rising Saudi Arabian city as he pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter's college tuition, and finally do something great. Now we have the first photo from the film. Look!
Following yesterday's tease of the new Batmobile for Batman vs. Superman, we understood that today would bring a full reveal of Bruce Wayne's signature Dark Knight vehicle. However, director Zack Snyder decided to sneak attack us with not only a better look at the Batmobile, but with the first image of Ben Affleck suited up as The Caped Crusader. It's a suit design that we haven't seen on the big screen before, and Affleck certainly looks pretty bulky in it. Is that all his own muscle or is that just the suit adding that definition? Anyway, Snyder shot this on set with his Leica M Monochrom camera. See the first look photo!
