ENJOY THE SHOW
Focus Features just recently pushed back the release of Insidious: Chapter 3 to the summer of 2015, but we only knew one cast member and didn't have any story details. That changes with the beginning of production and a first look photo announcement revealing that Dermot Mulroney will also be joined by Stefanie Scott (of Blumhouse Productions' Jem and the Holograms) and returning cast members Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson and Leigh Wannell (who is also directing in place of James Wan). In addition, it turns out this story is a prequel taking place before the terrors in the Lambert house from the first films.
Not too long ago, we learned that Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei would pop up in Judd Apatow's new comedy Trainwreck. The film is slated to hit theaters next summer with Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in the lead roles, and a first look photo from the set in New York City has just popped up online. Schumer also wrote the script which is inspired from some of her real-life experiences as she plays "a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways.” Apatow also helped write the screenplay and really pushed Schumer to make it personal. We can't wait to see how Hader and Schumer work together.
Following the release of a comedy reunion between Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler earlier this summer in Blended, we're hoping the latter has something more enticing in store with his video game adventure Pixels, directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone). To hype the 2015 release, the first photo has arrived online showing Sandler along with Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage suited up like astronauts from Armageddon making a slow-motion hero's stroll through fog. Michelle Monaghan is there too, but the real star is Dinklage's ridiculously gross mullet. Look below!
With the exception of Kung Fu Panda, there hasn't been much to enjoy about the more family friendly work of Jack Black lately. Therefore we're hopeful but skeptical about him starring in Goosebumps, a film inspired by the R.L. Stine horror book series for kids of the same name from the actor's Gulliver's Travels director Rob Letterman. However, the meta storyline sees Black playing Stine himself, a monster whisperer of sorts who uses his books to keep these terrors locked up. Now we have two first look photos from the film featuring Black with Dylan Minnette (Prisoners) and Odeya Rush (We Are What We Are).
"If there's a way to defeat Godzilla, we need to know." He lives. Found in the middle of Tokyo, Japan is an awesome 6.6 meter (~21.7 feet) "replica" of the King of Monsters from Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, where the film just hits theaters there (quite late) on July 25th this summer. The rather impressive sculpture features nearly life-like details, including a tail coming out of the ground and extending a bit behind, plus check this out: "the 'Midtown Meets Godzilla' project is in collaboration with the Japan release of the Hollywood film version of 'Godzilla', the Godzilla built on the lawns of Tokyo Midtown will host a light show everynight complete with mist, audio and fire rays." Get out of here, I need to see this! This is so cool.
Hot on the heels of this mornings reveal of Ultron on the new cover for EW, the first real photos from The Avengers: Age of Ultron have popped up. While they don't show more of the title villain, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) look out of place in a normal house, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) are doing science, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) see some action in the woods and new heroes Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) are in some kind of trouble. Even Don Cheadle pops up to hang out! We can't wait to see the first footage of the film at Comic-Con! Look below!
We're bound to get a huge first look at The Avengers: Age of Ultron next week at Comic-Con in San Diego, but until then we have our first look at the titular villain and his robot army thanks to the new cover of Entertainment Weekly. James Spader plays the bad buy, but there's no site of him since Ulton just looks like an alien version of Iron Man. Speaking of which, the cover also features a glimpse at a new suit for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also his patriotic partner Captain America (Chris Evans). Expect some more images to surface soon and plenty more news tom come out of Comic-Con next week. Look now!
This past weekend, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hit theaters, and it's undoubtedly one of the most engrossing blockbusters in recent memory, with compelling, rich characters that allow for so much genuine suspense and drama, it's truly a wonder. But the film we saw as almost drastically different. The apes were nearly much more evolved than they ended up being in this version of the story. Matt Reeves recently spoke to SlashFilm and explained how he wanted to show only a little progress of the apes' evolution. And part of that meant ditching idea to have the apes do things like wearing clothes in the film (though they still get some guns). But some concept art has surfaced showing off what that would have been like. Look below!
After premiering at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival last year, Alexandre Aja's adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns is on the way, with a release planned for sometime later this year. The film is poised to hit theaters on Halloween in the United Kingdom, and Empire has just debuted a teaser poster with Daniel Radcliffe looking rather menacing, and not far removed from the teaser poster that features Sirius Black for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Plus, there are two new photos from the film as well, one showing Radcliffe with his horns, and another with his girlfriend (Juno Temple) before she ends up dead.
In an effort to make their D23 Expo the place to find out about all of Disney's latest projects, the studio doesn't have a presence at Comic-Con this summer with the exception of letting Marvel Studios do their thing as usual. But since Disney won't be around, that means we're likely not going to see anything from their animated comic book adaptation Big Hero 6. But thankfully, the studio has just announced their voice cast. As we already heard T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph are on board, and they'll be joined by Scott Adsit, Damon Wayans Jr., Genesis Rodriguez, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk, Daniel Tenney and Ryan Potter. And we also have a first look at our superheroes as well! Look below!
After a couple quick features from "The Today Show" gave us a look behind the scenes of Jurassic World, showing off some of the full operational theme park that people have been attending for years, now we get a different look at the kind of attractions that have been available at the park. The Jurassic Park fan Twitter account JurassicP2K15 (via ComingSoon) got ahold of an official brochure of the park from the set of the film currently in production down in New Orleans, and while it doesn't show off any of the dinosaurs, there's a map of the park, a list of the dinosaurs they've bred, and of course some product placement. Look!
It's a bummer that we're not getting a theatrical release from Pixar Animation this year, but hopefully they'll make up for it next year with Inside Out, the heady story of the conflicting emotions inside a young girl's mind. And along with that film, as has become customary, we'll be getting an original short film from Pixar as well. It's called Lava, and the film is a 7-minute love story between two mountains named Uku and Lele (like ukulele, get it?). The film will actually premiere at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan next week, and before the film's release, a first look photo shows off one of the happy volcanoes.
Following a tragic death, an extended hiatus and production schedule and a delayed release, Universal has announced the completion of production on Fast & Furious 7. And with that, they wanted to thank all of the fans who have show their support for the franchise in the wake of the shocking death of star Paul Walker. It's a heartfelt message to the fans who were so shaken by the sad news last fall. And along with the message comes a photo from the set showing a somber, reflective Vin Diesel. Could this be a shot from the film? He does seem to be in full wardrobe as Dom, so it's a possibility. Either way, it's sad but sweet. Look!
This past May, some surprising news arrived announcing a sequel to the 1998 cult classic SLC Punk! from writer and director James Merendino. Even more surprising was the return of Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval reprising their roles from the first film. Now some first look images from Punk's Dead: SLC Punk! 2 have surfaced, showing off Hannah Marks as Penny, Ben Schnetzer looking like a vampire as Ross, and the return of Heroin Bob in two different forms. The photos seem to capture the spirit of the original film, but will this be anything more than nostaliga? We'll see. Look!
