New EW Cover + Photos for 'Batman v Superman' Before Comic-Con

Batman v Superman

Meet the new DC superheroes (and villains). Next week it's Comic-Con 2015, the annual convention in San Diego where thousands of comic book/pop culture geeks of all kind converge. Entertainment Weekly has published their annual preview piece, and that means revealing some new photos from movies we expect to show up at Comic-Con in Hall H. Warner Bros has a big panel on Saturday morning, and we expect Zack Snyder to bring lots of never-before-seen footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It's DC's chance to pull the spotlight away from Marvel for a bit. The photos show Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. See them below.

New Info + First Ships Revealed for 'Independence Day Resurgence'

Independence Day Resurgence

"We always knew they were coming back." Today we celebrate our independence! 20th Century Fox hosted a major event on the set of the new Independence Day movie filming in Albuquerque, New Mexico at this very moment. Not only did they invite half of the film press down to the event, complete with fireworks and a screening of the original movie, but they live-streamed a Q&A with the cast. One of the big announcements was the title and logo (seen above) - it's officially called Independence Day Resurgence, which is a very lengthy title. Resurgence simply means that there is going to be an angry retaliation from the aliens, they're definitely coming back and they're going to be pissed off. So what do we have to defend ourselves this time?

Photos: 'Batman v Superman' Batmobile Seen at the Licensing Expo

Batman v Superman Batmobile

Throughout Batman history, the Batmobile has been an iconic part of the superhero's stories, and a key part of the marketing for all the movies. Warner Bros has been hosting rolling roadshows of all the various Batmobiles throughout history, so it makes sense they're already showing off the latest model now. Wired has snapped a nice, clean shot of the new Batmobile from Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that's on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this week. A few other photos from social media have been added below. We've seen this before, but it's always nice to see it in closer detail. There's a hint it may even show up again in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, which is filming right now. Batman is back.

First Look: Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese's New Film 'Silence'

Silence

The new Scorsese movie is on the way. There have been handfuls of paparazzi set photos and other leaked images, plus news about production troubles, but after waiting patiently they've released an official photo from Martin Scorsese's Silence, which finished filming in Taiwan earlier this month. EW.com debuted this photo from Silence, showing actor Andrew Garfield as Father Rodrigues, a priest who travels to Japan to confront the rumors that his mentor has abandoned the Church. He's seen embracing Shinya Tsukamoto, who plays a villager named Mokichi. It's one simple shot but it's powerful and speaks volumes about what kind of film we'll be seeing. And I can't wait. I've got a really good feeling this is going to turn out amazing.

See the Andy Serkis Motion-Capture Shot from 'The Force Awakens'

The Force Awakens

This is cool. But I can't wait to see what the character actually looks like in the movie. There's an interesting interview with photographer Annie Leibovitz on StarWars.com that includes a fantastic new shot of Andy Serkis in full motion capture gear to play a character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. The shot shows him inside a mo-cap rig, presumably at ILM, with cameras all around and dots all over his face. In the interview they reveal: "Andy Serkis is playing a character named Supreme Leader Snoke, and the character is being created through performance capture." Indeed. See him below.

First Official Photos: Astronaut Matt Damon in 'The Martian' Movie

The Martian

Nice orange suit there, Mr. Damon. Coming to theaters later this year is Ridley Scott's next sci-fi movie, The Martian, adapted from Andy Weir's novel about an astronaut stranded on Mars. Matt Damon plays Mark Watney, that astronaut on Mars, and while we posted a "first look" a few months ago, this is really the photo everyone's been waiting to see. Well, everyone should wait to see the trailer for this - because the footage is going to be the most impressive part. Then again, if you're a space suit nerd this may be your moment to flip out. The shot (which looks like a magazine scan) shows Damon in his astronaut suit for his mission to Mars, on the ARES III. It's a cool shot, with some of the Martian landscape reflecting in his visor. Check it out.

First Photos from Todd Phillips' New Movie 'Arms and the Dudes'

Arms and the Dudes

Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm found four new photos posted online.

First Look: Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant in 'Florence Foster Jenkins'

Meryl Streep & Hugh Grant

Well aren't these two looking adorable? Pathé and BBC Films have debuted a first look photo at the film Florence Foster Jenkins, the latest from director Stephen Frears following Philomena, Lay the Favorite and Tamara Drewe. In Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep plays the legendary New York heiress who became an opera singer. Hugh Grant plays her partner St Clair Bayfield. The two can be seen riding in the back of a car, heading home from (what seems like) a night at Carnegie Hall. No release date is set yet, and the film just barely started shooting, so this is a very early first look and we likely won't see this until 2016.

First Look at Orgrim the Orc from Duncan Jones' 'Warcraft' Movie

Orgrim the Orc

For the Horde!! Finally, after years and years of waiting and buzz and details, we have an official first look at one of the Orcs from the upcoming Warcraft movie based on the popular video game. Moon/SourceCode director Duncan Jones is directing the Warcraft movie, about the Orcs vs the Humans, following various Orc and Human characters. This time we get to meet Orgrim the Orc, played by actor Robert Kazinsky, who we just saw as Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim. Over at Wired, where the image is from, they explain: "Orgrim's likeness comes from the masterminds at Industrial Light and Magic, who took concept art from Blizzard Entertainment… and merged it with photographs and scans of Kazinsky to create the orc." Sweet.

First Look: Kenneth Lonergan's New Film 'Manchester-by-the Sea'

Manchester-by-the Sea

Gather round for your first look at a new film starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. Out of Cannes, THR has posted the first three photos from Manchester-by-the Sea, the latest feature written & directed by Kenneth Lonergan about a man who returns to his small Massachusetts hometown to deal with both his estranged wife and the consequences of his brother's death. Casey Affleck plays the lead, while Michelle Williams plays his estranged wife, and the cast includes Kyle Chandler (seen in one of the photos). This is a very early tease as they're still shooting and looking to drum up sales buzz. We'll keep an eye out for it.

First Look: Michel Gondry's Road Movie About 'Microbe & Gasoil'

Microbe & Gasoil

This sounds like it's going to be so much fun. The first photo from the new Michel Gondry film has hit the web. Gondry moves quickly and quietly when working in France, we didn't even know this was shot yet. Microbe et Gasoil, as it's titled (or Microbe and Gasoil), is already filmed and stars Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet as the two boys, along with Audrey Tautou. This first photo won't make sense until you hear the plot, then you'll have a big smile on your face when you realize. "As the summer holidays approach, the two friends don't want to spend two months in the company of their families, so they build their own 'car' out of a motor mower and some planks of wood, and set off on an adventure on the roads of France."

Eisenberg & Stewart on First Two Smokin' Posters for 'American Ultra'

American Ultra

Wowza. I don't know how the MPAA let them get away with this, but awesome, let me say that. I'm guessing the lack of any cigarette/joint makes all the difference. Two new posters and a first look photo have debuted for American Ultra, the new film from a script by Max Landis (of Chronicle, The Death and Return of Superman) directed by Nima Nourizadeh. Actor Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner named Mike who, along with Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend, it turns out is a sleeper agent, and the government is trying to eliminate him. They definitely both look like stoners, with Eisenberg donning a wig, and Stewart dying her hair for the part, the only thing that really is missing is a joint. Take a look at all the new images below.

First Look: Elle Fanning in Nicolas Winding Refn's 'The Neon Demon'

Neon Demon

Don't worry, the first look photos for The Neon Demon do actually have neon in them. I wouldn't expect anything less from a Nicolas Winding Refn film, right? The first two photos for Refn's next feature, The Neon Demon, have hit the web just as the Cannes Film Festival kicks off today. But he's not showing the film there just yet, they're just drumming up some early buzz while in production now. Nicolas Winding Refn's cast this time includes Elle Fanning as the star, Jesse, a youthful model, along with Jena Malone, Karl Glusman, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Desmond Harrington, Christina Hendricks, and Keanu Reeves. These first two photos are only Fanning (and Refn) so far, but I'm sure we'll see more from this film soon enough.

More First Look Photos for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Uncovered

The Hateful Eight

More! Just yesterday we posted a first look at the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring three of the cast members from Quentin Tarantino's new film The Hateful Eight, hitting theaters late this year. Well, as expected, hidden inside the pages of the magazine are even more photos from the snowy western, starring quite a cast: Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins and Channing Tatum, in some kind of role. Not all of them are in these photos, but we at least get to see a few more of the characters that weren't originally on that cover. I'm excited for this based on the look of these alone, but also hoping for another fun film from Tarantino. It really looks like Kurt Russell is having so, so, so much fun in this film. Take a look.
