Lubezki is Sharing Amazing Making Of Photos from 'The Revenant'

The Revenant Photos

The master let's us take a look through his lens. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, known as "Chivo", is very likely going to win his third Oscar for filming The Revenant, the latest from director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (they also made Birdman together). The film opens in theaters later in December, but is getting early rave reviews for it's remarkable cinematography. Every last scene was shot using only natural, real light - no Hollywood tricks or lightbanks, it's all authentic. Lubezki joined Instagram a few years ago, but recently has been posting shots of various people and scenes from the filming of The Revenant in Canada (which went on for almost a year during late 2014/early 2015). Many of these characters are background characters, but they're definitely in it. Lubezki is a true master and every shot he takes is stunning to see.

New Poster for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' with One Month Left

The Hateful Eight

"No one comes up here without a damn good reason." It's time to count down the days until Tarantino's latest! There's only one month left until The Hateful Eight hits theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th, next month. The Weinstein Company has released a new poster for Quentin Tarantino's new snowy 70mm western, and it only shows the backs of all the characters. Their faces are lined up in boxes at the bottom and thank goodness the names above actually line up with the images below. I'm anxiously awaiting the chance to see this, and I hope it lives up to the hype. All of the footage we've seen in trailers and the buzz going around so far seems promising. See the latest trailer here and check out the new poster in full below.

First Photo + Poster for Jeff Nichols' Delayed Sci-Fi 'Midnight Special'

Midnight Special

He's not like us. What does it all mean? Earlier this week Entertainment Weekly debuted the first official photo from the film Midnight Special, the family-friend science fiction movie from writer/director Jeff Nichols (of Take Shelter, Mud and Shotgun Stories). This is the film that was pushed back after Warner Bros wanted to tweak it a bit, and now it's getting ready for release March next year. The first photo shows the boy's mother & father, played by Michael Shannon & Kirsten Dunst, with Alton, played by Jaeden Lieberher, as well as Joel Edgerton. The poster gives us a better hint at what's to come, but still vague.

Watch: Short International TV Spot for Duncan Jones 'Warcraft' Movie

Warcraft Movie

For the Horde! Take another look at this upcoming video game adaptation from director Duncan Jones. Legendary has released the first international TV spot for the epic Warcraft movie, which is promoting a full international trailer debut. There are a few bits and pieces of new footage in this compared to the full trailer which hit last week. This movie is finally being revealed to the public in a very big way after they've been quietly working on it for over a year, and reactions seem mixed so far. Warcraft stars Ben Foster, Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu and Clancy Brown. I actually like this more than the other trailer, it plays more dramatic, more epic. Check it.

'Star Wars' Mania - New Posters to Peruse for 'The Force Awakens'

Star Wars

"The Force, it's calling to you. Just let it in." The countdown is on, with weeks left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters everywhere. Star Wars Mania is kicking in full force, and one of the perks is that we get to see a lot of great artwork for the new movie (and the old ones, too). Like these three new posters below that we're featuring - two made by fans, one an actual official IMAX poster. It's going to be hard not to reveal too much or spoil anything from the movie of the next few weeks - but rest assured these posters don't spoil a thing. I've got tickets for Thursday night lined up, now we must just wait it out.

First Character Poster Set for Alex Proyas' Epic 'Gods of Egypt' Movie

Gods of Egypt

Meet the Gods of Egypt! Summit Entertainment has unveiled a set of character posters for Alex Proyas' next movie, title Gods of Egypt, an adventure epic about a common thief who joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt. The posters feature: Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert; Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Thief of Legend; Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, God of Wisdom; Elodie Yung as Hathor, Goddess of Love; and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, God of the Sky. There's a few others missing from the cast list, but I'm sure more will be revealed eventually. These are such gloriously epic, colorful, eye-catching posters that we can probably expect the same spectacle whenever the footage is unveiled in the first trailer.

First Teaser Poster for Pixar's Sequel 'Finding Dory' Out Next Summer

Dory in Finding Nemo

"Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!" Where'd she go! Disney has unveiled the first official teaser poster for Pixar's Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo, starring once again Dory the blue tang and her clownfish pals Marlin and Nemo. The voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell and others. The teaser poster is very simple featuring nothing but Dory escaping out of frame, and the new tagline for the movie. The tagline is very simple as well, and almost too on the nose for my liking, but this is just a tease so there will be plenty more to see. For now, take a look.

First Set of Character Posters Arrive for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Star Wars Character Posters

This scoundrel returns December 18th. And so does Leia. Plus we get to meet a young, new soon-to-be Jedi, another dark side guy, and a few more others the new Star Wars hits theaters in December. A set of five new character posters have debuted online for Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. The main five posters are for the main five characters - Han and Leia, played by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, of course. Plus the new ones: John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver (under mask) as Kylo Ren. I really love these designs - only one eye showing, the other half of their face covered up by their weapon of choice - they send a very powerful message. Only six more weeks to go.

Duncan posted an extra photo to Twitter today, and Universal released a brand new poster showing the two faces of orcs and humans, with red and blue drips, split by a big ass sword.

Hopefully the trailer lives up to the hype, stay tuned for that. See below.

Jared Leto's Joker Seen in Full on Empire's New 'Suicide Squad' Cover

Joker Suicide Squad

Meet everybody's favorite psycho killer, again. A photo of the newest Empire magazine cover has appeared online, and it's a very colorful, very fun shot of Jared Leto playing The Joker in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad. We've already seen that kick ass Comic-Con teaser trailer and the original Joker reveal photo, so it's nothing completely new, but it is cool to see more of him full-size like this. Plus, I dig the crazy wacky colorful design of the Empire cover. We still have yet to see the rest of the cast like this - Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Hopefully this is a good sign that a full theatrical trailer will be arriving sooner than we know it. Stay tuned for more.

Stunning Official Poster for Iñárritu's 'The Revenant' Finally Unveiled

The Revenant Poster

Holy crap this poster! My goodness. 20th Century Fox has unveiled the poster art for Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, one of our most anticipated films left to see this fall. So far the marketing for this has been perfect - the two incredible trailers we've seen have been breathtaking, all the imagery they've released looks amazing. Now we have a gorgeous poster to top it off. I'm glad that Fox's marketing team is as enthusiastic as I am about this film, because this is all making me even more excited. It's also refreshingly bold that neither Leonardo DiCaprio or Tom Hardy or any of the cast are on the poster, but that doesn't make it any less stunning. Very impressive for a studio movie, we rarely get posters this good. Take a look.

Ennio Morricone Also Scoring Malick's Long-Awaited 'Voyage of Time'

Ennio Morricone

The more Morricone, the better. Our friends at The Film Stage picked up on a mention on the website for film distributor Wild Bunch that indicates Terrence Malick's long-awaited other film Voyage of Time will feature a score by legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone. It mentions in the cast & crew listings there will be Original Music by Ennio Morricone. Many may remember the news we breathlessly reported earlier this year about Morricone returning to score his first original western in over 40 years - which would be Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, arriving in theaters later this December. It looks like Morricone will follow that up with Malick's Voyage of Time, his non-fiction film due sometime in late 2016, hopefully.

Watch: Featurette for Ryan Coogler's 'Creed' on the Legacy of 'Rocky'

Creed Featurette

"It's an honor to be part of the process." Warner Bros has unveiled a fascinating featurette on the making of Creed, the new film from director Ryan Coogler starring Michael B. Jordan as Adonis, Apollo Creed's son. We've already featured a few trailers already and have seen plenty of footage, and it looks great, but this is an interesting behind-the-scenes look at what went into the filmmaking process, the many decisions, their inspirations. Sylvester Stallone is involving in this quite a bit, as the video finally connects directly back to Rocky and even he admits it's a continuation of the legacy of those movies with a new generation. I dig all the footage of Ryan Coogler, he's such a talented director. Can't wait! Welcome to the fall movie season.
