ENJOY THE SHOW
This fall will bring the final chapter of The Hunger Games trilogy adaptation (though Lionsgate is keen on making more films set in the sci-fi universe). And while the film is still two whole seasons away, the hype machine has officially begun with the first teaser poster featuring the golden Mockingjay taking flight, engulfed in flames. As we learned in February, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 will be the first film in the franchise to get released in the IMAX 3D format, with director Francis Lawrence saying the post-production conversion on the last film in China brought a "new level of immersion." Poster below!
Yesterday we featured a round of stunning posters created by the talented artist's who partook in paying tribute to this summer's forthcoming blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road over at Poster Posse. There were some incredible contributions that we highlighted, and today comes the second and final phase of their artwork releases with even more gorgeous work. Tom Hardy is prominently featured, but so are the orange desert landscapes and warm colors. It's a shame that real movie posters can't look like these pieces nowadays. There's absolutely no reason artists can't be hired to create the posters for movie studios. Look!
Earlier this year, we got a look at one of the sets for Steve Jobs, the film about the iconic technology innovator and co-founder of Apple Computers. Director Danny Boyle was using the real garage that Jobs created Apple in along with his right hand man Steve Wozniak, and it was made to look just as it did decades ago. However, with the exception of some spy photos from production on-location in California, we've yet to get a good look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. But now we have one glimpse of the actor in the role in the form of a vintage promotional poster that has him promoting Apple's NeXT line of computers.
So far we've only seen a teaser trailer and some first look photos from Guillermo del Toro's anticipated gothic horror flick Crimson Peak. We don't have much to go on yet, but it looks pretty damn creepy, the kind of horror film that usually doesn't get made anymore. And now we have an idea of just how scary it might be. It seems del Toro had an early screening of his film and shared it with some of his friends in the horror business, specifically the master of suspense Stephen King, and he had some exciting praise for the film. Also in attendance and saying kinds words was King's son Joe Hill, also a respected horror writer.
The summer isn't too far away, which means we're getting very excited to see Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and more in Mad Max: Fury Road in May. The most recent international trailer and theatrical trailer were chock full of beautiful imagery and absolutely insane action. This is going to be something to behold on the big screen for sure. And to keep the hype alive, Poster Posse has unveiled a batch of posters in honor of George Miller's latest return to the desert. There's some incredible artwork here, and this is just the first batch. We'll post more when they become available, but it's a great start. Look!
Fans were elated last fall when 20th Century Fox finally announced that they would be bringing Deadpool to the big screen the proper way after completely ruining the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The studio brought back Ryan Reynolds in the lead role as Wade Wilson, aka the Merc with a Mouth, and visual effects wizard Tim Miller will make his feature directorial debut. The supporting cast has started to fill out with Gina Carano, T.J. Miller and more, and now Reynolds has spoken out to fans to reassure them that this will be the Deadpool movie they want, even though we've heard the movie will be rated PG-13.
Since all the heroes have gotten their own posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron (with the exception of Paul Bettany as The Vision), it's time for the title villain to take the spotlight. Ultron (voiced by James Spader) finally gets his own poster, and it's a familiar shot that we've actually seen in a couple of the trailers. It's one of the sequences where Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who both got their own posters before the weekend, are still working with the villain. This should be it for the character posters, though we're betting Vision gets one after the movie arrives. Look!
It seemed a little weird that when the rest of the character posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron were released before the third trailer arrived that Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) didn't get their own posters, especially since they were featured on the theatrical posters with the whole team. But it looks like they're just arriving a little late as the siblings each get their own poster. As we've seen in the trailer, they initially are working with Ultron (James Spader) and cause trouble for our heroes, but then end up joining them in the end. I'm interested to see what makes them turn.
Nowadays, character posters for films are a little excessive. We'll feature them every now and then when there's a huge roster of characters for something like The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we normally try to steer clear otherwise, and studios have started to do the same more recently. However, a batch of character posters for The Age of Adaline just surfaced, and while that might seem ridiculous for a romance, they've done it in a clever way. Each poster shows Blake Lively, who doesn't age in the film, in a different photo from each decade of her life, beginning in the 1920s and going all the way through the current year 2015.
After bringing tears to our eyes last year with The Fault in Our Stars, another adaptation of a young adult novel from author John Green is headed out way later this summer. Paper Towns is based on the book of the same name with Nat Wolff (a co-star from The Fault in Our Stars) and Cara Delevingne (future star of Suicide Squad) starring in the story of a girl named Margo (Delevingne) who loved mysteries so much that she became one, just when things were looking up for Quentin Jacobsen (Wolff) after meeting her. And so begins the hunt for Margo, which will bring more answers than Q may have expected. Now the first poster for the adaptation has arrived, which means the first trailer should be on the way soon. Look below!
We already know there's the Ultimate Marvel Marathon making a comeback at very select AMC Theatres and Regal Entertainment Group locations leading up to the debut of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. And now the former theater chain has just unveiled three limited edition prints that fans will be able to get their hands on. We know for sure one will be handed out at the double feature of The Avengers and its sequel, and we're assuming one will be handed out at the massive Marvel marathon, and the other one will go to fans who attend the first screening of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in the evening of April 30th. Look!
In case you missed it this morning, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson popped up at Fashion Week in Paris to close out the Maison Valentino runaway show to announce the arrival of Zoolander 2, which has been set for release on February 12th, 2016 next year. We already highlighted a bunch of photos from social media with Stiller and Wilson on the catwalk, but now Paramount Pictures have released an official video of Derek Zoolander and Hansel from the fashion event. This was the coolest way to find out about Zoolander 2 officially coming next year, and I wouldn't be surprised if we see footage from this event in the movie. Look!
Even though Edge of Tomorrow, or Live Die Repeat as it's been rebranded, didn't do well at the theatrical box office, it's thankfully found the audience it deserves on home video. The film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt isn't just another sci-fi blockbuster as it takes the familiar Groundhog Day premise, delivers some killer action but also throws in a surprising amount of comedy. Now a fan of the film has decided to create an infographic charting every single time William Cage (Cruise) dies in the film. Keep in mind, these are only the deaths we see as much more time and deaths pass off camera. Look below now!
We're not sure if this is a viral stunt or if production is already underway on Zoolander 2, but over in Paris, during Fashion Week, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson just popped up at the end of the Valentino show. Images and videos started pouring out straight from the event on social media, showing Zoolander and Hansel all dressed up and strutting down the catwalk. This just gets me infinitely more excited to see this sequel, which will be about 15 years old when all is said and done. Will Ferrell is supposed to be back as Mugatu, and we can't wait to see what these male models have been doing for over a decade now. Look!
