ENJOY THE SHOW
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.
"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.
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.
"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.
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.
Get ready - the Horde is coming! Director Duncan Jones has confirmed that the first official trailer for the Warcraft movie will be online this Friday (November 6th). 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. It's a cool tease and a cool poster. Robert Kazinsky stars as Ogrim the Orc, Travis Fimmel stars as Anduin Lothar, and the full cast includes Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper and Clancy Brown. Hopefully the trailer lives up to the hype, stay tuned for that. See below.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
As announced at the end of the new trailer debuted on TV tonight, tickets are now on sale for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Check your local cinema's website for more info, and don't forget there are special seven-movie marathons happening at a good selection of movie theater chains around the country. Midnight and slightly earlier evening shows begin at 7PM on Thursday, December 17th, before the opening on Friday, December 18th coming up in two months. The only bad news - by the time anyone reads this, most of those shows have already been sold out nationwide. Nonetheless, you can still try and find some open seats in any theaters - it's playing almost everywhere. "The Force - it's calling to you…"
All hail Caesar! This is awesome. Filmmaker Matt Reeves posted a must see photo to his Twitter account this weekend to commemorate the start of shooting on the next film, War of the Planet of the Apes. The shot shows a motion-capture person (the ape) approaching a horse with someone on it, on a very murky beach. Over at SlashFilm they say this beach is very reminiscent of the one from the end of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes, when they find the Statue of the Liberty. That would be a pretty obvious connection, but who knows exactly what part they're shooting here. Could be an entirely new scene but it's still very cool, and I'm excited more than ever to see Reeves continue this story. Filming just started on this Apes sequel.
There has been an awakening… Disney/Lucasfilm have revealed the first official poster for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a continuation of the sci-fi saga that George Lucas started in 1977. This poster is very reminiscent of all the other official artwork for the two original trilogies, and isn't designed by Drew Struzan, however I hope we'll see more Struzan work soon. In the meantime, this is spectacular poster that captures both the dark side and the light side. John Boyega stars as Finn, along with Daisy Ridley as Rey, and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren - these three are featured prominently. Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher also show up, along with Chewie, Poe Dameron & Captain Phasma. Watch the new trailer right here.
Briefly: Get ready to be more excited than you've ever been before. This coming Monday, October 19th, it's going to be Star Wars Mania. Over at io9 they've confirmed with sources that the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be hitting on Monday evening. Right after the trailer hits, which I'm sure is going to make all of us go crazy with excitement, tickets for the opening day will go on sale. In addition to the trailer and tickets, an official poster will arrive on Sunday morning to remind us of the big reveal the next day. I've got a feeling everyone is going to be going Star Wars crazy on Monday, especially once the new trailer (presumably full of all kinds of new footage) drops. Stay tuned for lots of exciting Star Wars updates.
