Regal Launches Special 'Spectre' Ultimate Ticket to See It Once a Day


Wait, what?! Regal Cinemas has announced a special "ultimate" ticket for the upcoming 24th Bond movie, titled Spectre, starring Daniel Craig as 007, once again directed by Sam Mendes. The cinema chain has revealed a special ticket that, for $100, allows any moviegoer to go see Spectre once a day for the entire run of the movie - which will likely be 3 or 4 or maybe 5 months at most. The kicker, or the real prize as it should be affirmed, is the limited edition "first-of-its-kind black anodized steel collectible" laser etched Spectre ticket card that you will receive and use to get access to the movie. Awesome. Now I want this, hell, just for the card, not even for the movies (which is probably the whole plan, if you think about it). Read on.

First Look: Kellan Lutz & Daniel MacPherson in Sci-Fi Action 'SFv1'

SFv1 First Look

Nice guns. There's a new sci-fi action film in the works, and it's time for our first look. THR has debuted the first photo from the set of the movie SFv1, being directed by Shane Abbess. SFv1 stars Kellan Lutz and Daniel MacPherson in a time of interplanetary colonization. Lutz plays a "mysterious drifter" who befriends a "military contractor", played by MacPherson, in a "global crisis". Vague details, but at least the photo has some cool weapons in it. The project is currently being shown off at the Toronto Film Festival market, with footage being previewed for buyers, even though it's filming in Australia. XYZ Films is repping. See below.

Spectre Banner

Bond is back! There's now two months left until the new James Bond movie hits theaters, and I'm starting to get really excited. So is the movie studio, as they're continuing to release more and more marketing to get us in the mood for some spy action. A set of new promo banners have debuted for Sam Mendes' Spectre, the 24th Bond movie, once again starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007. The official poster with Bond is his tux debuted a few weeks ago, but this new poster also features Léa Seydoux (as Madeleine Swann) at his side. And there's also the masked skeleton character seen in Mexico showing up again, too. Is that Blofeld?

First Look: New Photos from Christmas Horror 'Krampus' Unwrapped

Krampus Photos

The children were nestled all snug in their beds, while Krampus is figuring out how to rip off their heads. The first photos from the upcoming Christmas horror Krampus have been revealed via USA Today. From the same director who reinvented Halloween horror with Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty is next bringing us Krampus, starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Allison Tolman, David Koechner and many others. It's about the Krampus monster (seen in a shrouded silhouette below) who comes to haunt children. I saw some footage from this at Comic-Con and it looks damn good. Until the trailer hits, check out these photos.

It's Time for Cinema - The Fall Festival Season Kicks Off This Week

Telluride Film Festival

It's time. Time to kick off the fall movie season. We're just about done with summer, the kids are back in school, and most importantly - the fall film festivals are about to kick off. The Venice Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival both open this week, with many big (and surprise) premieres planned. Right after that, the festival season continues with the Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest in Austin, leading to the New York Film Festival and AFI Fest in Los Angeles, not to mention the London Film Festival. That takes us right into the awards season of November/December. Whether you like it or not, or you hate the awards grind and endless campaigning, this is the time of year when all the good films roll out - last year's gems, surprising discoveries, more films to fall in love with. I'm ready to start watching.

Get ready. Something big is coming. In a post on Hollywood Reporter, they've confirmed with IMAX that Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Force Awakens directed by J.J.

Indeed, since The Force Awakens looks so damn good this is building up the anticipation even further.

New Poster for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Film Premiering Very Soon

Steve Jobs Film

Universal has debuted a poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, which is about to premiere and start earning real buzz with critics/journalists. I've heard from numerous places that the film will be premiering at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, and it will also play at the New York Film Festival in October. We've already seen a couple of trailers so far, and it looks way better than I was expecting, though I'm very curious to see how much of an influence Boyle had. Since I'm perhaps more intrigued by Sorkin's script than anything else. Michael Fassbender plays the iconic black-turtleneck-wearing tech innovator Steve Jobs.

Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Septemberg' Spielberg Month Screenings

Septemberg - Alamo Drafthouse

"I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real." Get ready for Steven Spielberg mania all-September-long at your local Alamo Drafthouse! Drafthouse has officially announced a new screening series they're hosting called Septemberg, in honor of the upcoming release of Spielberg's newest movie Bridge of Spies (in theaters October 16th). Many of my friends grew up watching Spielberg movies, whether it was E.T. or Indiana Jones or Jaws or Hook or Close Encounters. He's a one-of-a-kind, masterful filmmaker even today, and it's always exciting to revisit his past work. The Drafthouse also put together a fun video teaser for the "Septemberg" series, along with info and locations around the country.

Check Out Empire's Light Side/Dark Side 'The Force Awakens' Covers

Empire - Star Wars

"Have you felt it? The dark side, and the light." Which side are do you stand on? Empire magazine has just revealed their two new photos for Lucasfilm's upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and they actually look pretty damn cool. One cover features three characters from the Dark Side - Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, with his mask and red cross-saber; Captain Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie; and General Hux, played by Domhnall Gleeson. The other cover is for the Light Side (the good guys, yay!) - Rey front and center, played by Daisy Ridley, flanked by Finn played by John Boyega, and Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac. Each one has an extended "pull out" side piece, which completes the image. Lots of tie fighters! And the Millennium Falcon. The line-up shown this way looks awesome. Nice score, Empire.

Here's All the Character Posters from Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'

The Hateful Eight

"Move a little strange, you're gonna get a bullet. Not a warning, not a question, a bullet." Time to meet all eight of the untrustworthy bounty hunter vermin shacked up under one roof in a blizzard during Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight. From the "Bounty Hunter" himself, to "The Hangman" and his "Prisoner", to "The Sheriff" and "The Mexican", as well as "The Little Man", "The Cow Puncher" (my favorite name) and of course, "The Confederate". Th first teaser for The Hateful Eight just came out last week and they've been revealing each of these posters day-by-day, one for each of the "eight". Now we can get a good look at all of them together. I like these, but nothing tops that blue Comic-Con poster art for Hateful Eight. Your choice?

First Teaser Poster for Disney's 'Jungle Book' Directed by Jon Favreau

Jungle Book Poster

Oh, Baloo, I wanna stay with you. Walt Disney Studios has unveiled the first teaser poster for Disney's The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau mostly in motion capture, starring Neel Sethi as Mowgli. The movie was made using mostly motion capture, and apparently the CGI work is "next level", according to SlashFilm's Peter Sciretta. Fans and press attending the D23 Expo's presentation on live-action Disney movies today were treated to a look at The Jungle Book, and according to early buzz it's very impressive and nostalgic, earning a standing ovation. For everyone else not there, this poster below is our first look for now.

First Posters Spotted for Pixar's 'Toy Story 4', 'The Incredibles 2' & More

Pixar Posters

"You, sir, truly are Mr. Incredible. You know, I was right to idolize you?" With the D23 Expo underway out in Anaheim, California, Disney is making some big reveals. Found on the showfloor are a set of posters for Pixar's set of movies "Coming Soon". The poster set begins with The Good Dinosaur, which is out this Thanksgiving, and continues all the way up to Brad Bird's The Incredibles 2, which was announced last year. More sequels, yes, but at least The Incredibles 2 is being written and directed and cared for by Brad Bird and at least it's in the works. Toy Story 4 also gets a familiar poster. Check out all the photos below.

First Two Teaser Posters for Disney's 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'

Alice Through the Looking Glass

It's time for a little tiny tease of the madness. With D23 underway, Disney has unveiled a first look at two teaser posters for Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Disney's re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland starring Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska from 2010. Those two are both returning and each one gets their own teaser poster - one for Alice, one for the Mad Hatter, played by Depp. Hopefully they're not all obsessed with pushing the 3D version of this sequel, and considering 3D is not seen anywhere on these posters, that may be a good sign. It's likely we'll see a teaser trailer by the end of the year, but in the meantime start with these posters and rewatch the old animated original. Is anyone excited for this sequel?
