ENJOY THE SHOW
If you happened to catch Unfriended in theaters this past weekend, then you may have been treated to a bit of a surprise, which is rare these days. Universal Pictures decided to release the teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's horror film The Visit in theaters exclusively this weekend without any pomp or circumstance. It will be available online this Thursday, and in the meantime, a cool, knitted teaser poster has arrived for the film that marks The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable director's return to horror, hopefully with a good film this time. The trailer is creepy, but you'll have to wait a couple days before you see it. Look!
Thanks to all the excitement from Star Wars Celebration this weekend, the buzz on last week's new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still going strong. And thanks to a statement made by Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy and will reprise the role for Episode VII this winter, people are talking about his voiceover heard in the trailer, the only dialogue heard in the film besides the moment we see Han Solo and Chewbacca again. It's clear the dialogue is from Return of the Jedi, but Hamill has people thinking the dialogue was changed for the trailer. But that's not the case.
The first official teaser poster for Ant-Man certainly had us grinning since it took advantage of the size of Marvel Studios' newest big screen superhero for an amusing piece of marketing. And now they're at it again with a cute little viral campaign popping up in Australia. Reddit users (via ScreenCrush) have noticed some tiny billboards popping up next to bus stops down under promoting Ant-Man. They look just like normal sized billboards, complete with lights that turn on at night, and it's just an adorable and clever little stunt. We haven't heard about any of these popping up in the United States yet, but keep your eyes peeled. Look!
We're just about a month away from the release of Disney's original sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland from The Incredibles director Brad Bird, and the hype train is now running at full steam. If you happen to be checking out Disneyland or DisneyWorld sometime before the film hits theaters, you'll be able to check out an exclusive sneak peek of the movie to tickle your fancy. And along with that, Bird has also revealed the IMAX poster for the film, showing off a grand shot of the title city of the future. Also, a new iinternational poster has surfaced finally giving Britt Robertson the spotlight, albeit with George Clooney. Look now!
And here we go… Zack Snyder has tweeted out the first two posters for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be handed out at the IMAX events this Monday, April 20th. And they are awesome. I love them both. The two posters, one for Batman and one for Superman (but none for Wonder Woman or Aquaman or Lex Luthor or anyone else… yet), which seem to have an Andy Warhol-esque design that also borrows from the Joker viral campaign for The Dark Knight. We all got to see the first teaser trailer a few days ago when it debuted online, so now we get a tease at more of their marketing and it's definitely going to rile a few people up. Take a look at both new BvS posters in full below - and tell us which one you prefer?
It's no secret that we haven't been impressed with what we've seen from Terminator: Genisys so far. Even with the most recent trailer revealing a big plot twist (watch the trailer right here), it all just seems desperate to shake up a franchise that seems to have peaked with Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And why is that? Well, a new video examines why this latest iteration of the Arnold Schwarzenegger action franchise may feel so stale and tired. Basically, it's just a carbon copy of every other Terminator movie, and not just because of the obvious homages. You'll what I mean after you check out this video. Watch below!
Bleep! Bloop! Bleep! Translation: come fly to Japan on my airplane! Holy crap this is… awesome? Yea, I'm going to say it is. One of the big reveals this week at Star Wars Celebration, along with the new trailer for The Force Awakens, is a brand new R2-D2-painted Boeing 787 commercial airplane. We've seen Smaug the Airplane, now it's R2's turn. The new aircraft will be part of All Nippon Airways fleet, based out of Japan, and it will be launching in fall 2015 (a bit closer to the release of The Force Awakens). The plane is being shown off in videos at their booth, but we found nice clean shots of it in flight. I'll take a ticket, please.
Early this afternoon, we were wowed by the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was chock full of plenty of new goodies, and also some sentimental old faces and friends. And now that we've had a chance to watch it dozens of times, and will continue to do so until December, we wanted to examine the trailer much more closely and see what we can decipher about what's to come in Star Wars: Episode VII. There are undoubtedly some hints as to what we can expect in the J.J. Abrams flick, but we're still just piecing together fragments here and there combined with the rumors we've heard. More below!
An early look at The Making of The Force Awakens. Disney kicked things off with a bang in Anaheim with the opening panel of Star Wars Celebration, taking place this weekend in Southern California. The panel included an hour long discussion and first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens, guided by director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy. They told stories of growing up with Star Wars, making sure the fans are satisfied (in every way), the daunting task of continuing this legacy when George Lucas decided to hand it over. In the background were slides showing various behind-the-scenes production photos, including on the desert planet Jakku (or is it Jaku?). And, to be frank, we love behind-the-scenes photos. This recap comes directly from the live stream of the Star Wars Celebration opening presentation.
Before we saw the fantastic second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some promotional art for the film surfaced online. But since we didn't want to jump the gun and show you some mediocre images of certain characters from the film before they were revealed in the trailer, we waited until now to show them off. These look like the kind of posters you'd find at Wal-Mart or maybe in some kind of small poster book for kids, but they do give us a great look at the new villain Kylo Ren, who is believed to be played by Adam Driver, with his metallic mask on, as well as a chrome stormtrooper, rumored to be named Captain Phasma and played by Gwendoline Christie, and the Empire troops in formation. Look!
We'll likely hear more about this in the next few days, but it seems Zack Snyder and Warner Bros are on the verge of announcing a big IMAX event being planned for this coming Monday, April 20th. We've already posted about the rumor that the first tease of Zack Snyder's highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage will hit tomorrow, just before the new Star Wars trailer, and that means the full trailer will follow - and will also show with Mad Max: Fury Road. But in the meantime, there's word that apparently Warner Bros is coordinating IMAX events to show footage from Batman v Superman in theaters on the big screen. It sounds like they might be pulling out all the stops, and showing fans some of the footage they've been waiting for - more than just the trailer. And now the details on theaters have surfaced.
This Thursday will kick off Star Wars Celebration, and as we revealed today, all the panels from the convention will be streamed online, and they will include all the exclusive footage that will be shown to fans over in California. Rumor has it that includes the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there will be another major tease coming that same day, one hour before the Star Wars hype kicks off. Latino Review reports the five seconds of footage from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be teased through Zack Snyder's Twitter before the official trailer is revealed in theaters on Monday, April 20th.
With May just around the corner, the summer of blockbuster is starting to heat up. And while we've still got a couple months to wait for some of the later releases in the season, the official start of the most profitable time of the year for Hollywood will bring plenty of hype for the films on the way. This time we've got a new poster for Pan, the fantasy adaptation from director Joe Wright, which means there may be a new trailer on the way as well, especially since we've only seen one trailer for the film, and that was back in 2014. None of the film's stars like Hugh Jackman are featured, but that's actually somewhat refreshing. Look below!
Just how big is an IMAX camera, really? Here's a fun photo that should give you a good idea. Director Zack Snyder (currently working on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) tweeted out a photo showing him holding a huge IMAX camera inside an office, presumably in preparation for some IMAX filming. He didn't add any other description aside from the hashtag "#workout". In the background you can see posters for The Dark Knight, Skyfall and IMAX's Space Station 3D movie, which means Zack was visiting one of IMAX's offices when they snapped this. We already know that Snyder shot some footage for Batman v Superman in IMAX, and hopefully we'll know more about exactly how much footage there will be soon. Take a look below.
