Three New Character Posters for 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

There's only three more months to go until the release of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros is sticking firm with the March 2016 release date, and has issued three new character posters for the three major heroes: Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. I'm sure we'll see a few more superheroes in the movie (The Flash? Aquaman?) but these are the biggest sellers and the main guys in this battle. Ben Affleck plays Batman, Henry Cavill plays Superman, and Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman. The most recent trailer seemed to be very divisive and upsetting to some, but that may be part of their plan with a series of DC movies in the works. For now, I'm still looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Viral Site for 'ID: Resurgence' Reveals Will Smith's Character's Fate

Independence Day: Resurgence

The world mourns Col. Hiller. While we all know they couldn't get Will Smith back for the Independence Day sequel, do they have explanation for him in the fictional movie world? The answer is most definitely: yes. Hidden in the very first epic trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence is a link to a brand new viral URL and ARG website called War of 1996 (referring to the original alien invasion and real of ID4 in 1996). Thanks to tips from ComingSoon and SlashFilm, in the timeline of events on the website it actually includes info and details on the unfortunate death of Will Smith's character, Captain Steven Hiller. This isn't really so much of a spoiler as it as a teaser to dive deeper into this website and learn more of the backstory.

First Teaser Poster for Animated 'Kubo and the Two Strings' Movie

Kubo and the Two Strings

I've got a good feeling about this one. We have yet to see a trailer, though hopefully there may be one soon enough. Focus Features is releasing Laika's next new stop-motion animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings next August, and they've premiered this eye-catching official poster. The film is described as a "gripping yarn woven from Japanese folktales and mythology, with lost civilizations, mystical origami, noble heroes, star-crossed lovers, and blood-curdling monsters." It features the voices of Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, George Takei, with Art Parkinson as Kubo. This is some beautiful art that shows quite a bit of promise, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

First Photos + Poster for 'Legend of Tarzan' with Alexander Skarsgård

Legend of Tarzan

More Tarzan? Yes indeed. While Guillermo del Toro never moved forward with his version of Tarzan, former Harry Potter director David Yates has been working on The Legend of Tarzan for Warner Bros. The studio has debuted two first look photos and a poster for the new Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgård as the jungle boy. He's now living in London and is called back to the jungle, where they "haven’t been [in] an awfully long time". Skarsgård explains to USA Today that "it's almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast… This is about a man who's holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out." Very interesting.

Watch: Hyped 'Star Wars' Fans' Reactions to 'The Phantom Menace'

Star Wars' Fans

"Couldn't get enough of it, I want to see it again!!" The new Star Wars movie is just about a week away from opening, and pretty much everyone is excited. As hyped as we all are, don't forget that no one knows (yet) if it will actually be any good. There's some extremely high expectations and most people still think of the prequels and how mediocre they were, worried about how this will turn out. Which is why it's time for a fun trip down memory lane with this video going around the web. It's a collection of local news station clips interviewing fans before and after they saw Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 1999. As you can expect, pretty much everyone says that it was the best movie ever made. Except for the very last guy.

New Featurette for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' on its Ensemble Cast

The Hateful Eight Featurette

"We've got eight people that are very different, very dangerous and to varying degrees, hateful…" The Weinstein Company has debuted a new featurette for the upcoming Tarantino movie The Hateful Eight, starring one helluva ensemble cast. The eight who get stuck in a blizzard at Minnie's Haberdashery are: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Demian Bichir. This featurette explores the dynamics and relationships of the cast, to compliment the technical featurette about 70mm from before. The best part about this is the cast, and Goggins is one of my favorites, plus Jackson as always. Check out this fantastic 4-min featurette below.

New Death Star-Themed Drafthouse is Open in Omaha, Nebraska

Star Wars Drafthouse

The Force is strong with this one. The Alamo Drafthouse has opened a new location in Omaha, Nebraska this week and if you're anywhere near there you have to go check it out. The movie theater is completely themed for Star Wars, complete with a Death Star in the lobby and an impressive concession stand made to look like it's on the Death Star. "The idea behind the lobby is that we wanted to construct and install a lobby theme that would make us unique in our Omaha market as well as the midwest." Unique indeed, and this is a permanent theme. Entertainment Weekly has posted a few photos which we've added below. I want to go see a movie here! The perfect place to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it opens later in the month.

Vintage 'The Force Awakens' Posters Are Connecting Past & Present

The Force Awakens

Just let it in! We're down to the last few weeks. Over the weekend, Lucasfilm debuted three new posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens that contain nothing but text. They are actually a specific throwback to the very same poster design utilized during the release of Star Wars: A New Hope on May 25th, 1977. For reference, we've included photos of the original posters at the bottom. We've seen so much imagery, so many attempts at Drew Struzan art, that it's sometimes refreshing to see marketing that is based purely on our imagination. That's what Star Wars is all about, capitalizing on our boundless imaginations and the joys that come with believing in The Force. It's exciting to be around here for yet another big Star Wars release.

"This has a chance to change all of our lives…" 20th Century Fox has debuted a few new TV spots this last month for the upcoming release of David O. Russell's new film Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano, the young single mother who invents the Miracle Mop.

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.
