ENJOY THE SHOW
In case you didn't know, Samuel L. Jackson is playing the President of the United States of America in a new movie called Big Game. No, this isn't some outlandish grindhouse movie where the president is a bad ass motherfucker, but instead, the movie is described as Air Force One meets The Grey, where the Commander in Chief finds himself stranded in the wilderness when his signature plane is shot down by terrorists. In the vast landscape of nature, a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) is the only one in the area who is able to help the president survive. This sounds like it could be damn cool, and as the eight-week production overseas in Bavaria is coming to a close, we have a first look photo from the film!
Following a new poster yesterday, two new images for Marvel's sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier have just arrived before the new trailer hits tomorrow at 12pm ET. We get a good look at Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans)new uniform as he has a chat with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) looking at something off screen. And also, there's an overhead shot following a fight where Captain America has just taken out nearly a dozen guys who tried to ambush him in an elevator (we saw this scene at Comic-Con and it was fantastic). We can't wait to see what the teaser trailer brings tomorrow, so make sure to come back.
The fastest man on two wheels. The biggest liar of our time. The greatest downfall in sports history. He is many things, and his story will be scrutinized and discussed for many years to come. In addition to the documentary about cyclist Lance Armstrong being released this year, titled The Armstrong Lie from Alex Gibney, a couple of different competing feature films telling his story are in the works. One of them, directed by Stephen Frears, just started shooting a few days ago with Ben Foster starring and our first look has already arrived. I can hardly tell that is Foster beneath the jersey and cap, but apparently it is. Take a look.
There's always room for more submarine movies. The next one in production now is titled Black Sea, a thriller about a down-on-his-luck sub captain who takes a job on a ship that's supposedly filled with gold. The project is filming now and Entertainment Weekly has unveiled three photos of Jude Law, who stars as Capt. Robinson. Director Kevin Macdonald calls out a few other iconic sub films: Run Silent, Run Deep (1958) and Das Boot (1981). "They're incredibly tense, exciting films because of the claustrophobia and the sense that you're somewhere you shouldn't be. Like in space, if something goes wrong, you're dead," he says.
Oh hell yes, this looks awesome. And they're barely two weeks into shooting! Following in the footsteps of filmmakers like Marc Webb shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and posting a photo every day to Twitter, David Ayer has started posting one photo to Twitter every day for his next movie Fury. The WWII tank action movie has a hell of a cast and already had a first look photo a month ago. Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal star, and a few of them can be seen hidden in these photos. All-in-all this just looks fantastic so far, and I love seeing this kind of kick ass behind-the-scenes look this early while production is underway. He's 15 days into filming so far, but there are some great shots already! Take a look.
In the summer of 2012, we got our first glimpse at the computer animated versions of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the DreamWorks Animation of the classic cartoon short from "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" in the late 1950s. The film was originally slated to hit theaters this year, but layoffs at the animation studio resulted in a delay that will see the film arrive on March 14th, 2014. With the film on the horizon, we have some new photos from the actual film this time, which likely means a trailer is just around the corner. We get our first glimpse of the WABAC machine, Sherman's friend Penny and their adventures in Egypt. Look!
It's October. The month of horror. What better film to feature than Stanley Kubrick's classic The Shining. Last year we had an entire documentary about the mysteries within, titled Room 237. This year we have a great set of photos showing the Ahwahnee Hotel, found in Yosemite National Park, which was Kubrick's reference for the interiors of his hotel. We're all familiar with the The Stanley Hotel in Colorado that is the model for the exterior of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. But the interiors are completely different and we now have some fantastic photos from J.W. Kern showing us what the real Ahwahnee Hotel is like inside.
A new year wouldn't be complete without a film from Woody Allen. This year he brought the entrancing and spectacularly acted Blue Jasmine to audiences, and it's no surprise that he's already at work on his film for 2014. We knew the film would star Emma Stone and Colin Firth, and now we have the first images from the film which Sony Pictures Classics have released, along with the title Magic in the Moonlight. As always, we don't have any plot details, but the project takes place in the South of France and has been described as a romantic comedy that spans about 20 years, taking place throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
How much would you have missed if you were locked up for 20 years? At this point in our history, a lot has happened in 20 years. The rise of the internet and changes in our society, three different presidents, natural and man-made disasters, and so much more. The distributor behind Spike Lee's Oldboy remake has been doing a pretty good job promoting the film through unique marketing ideas (like the women at Comic-Con). They've been running a Tumblr that is looking back at "20 Years of Oldboy" and all that happened while Joe Doucett, played by Josh Brolin, was locked up. A set of images, one for each year, have now debuted in full and we've collected the complete set for your perusing. A quick look back at the last 20 years since 1993.
Following the first photo from the set of Fast & Furious 7 while production was filming in Louisiana, star Vin Diesel also used a photo to confirm that Kurt Russell was on set as one of the film's villain. Now we get a taste of the other villain in the sequel with a photo that director James Wan posted online. The credits bump at the end of Fast & Furious 6 revealed that Ian Shaw (Luke Evans) had a brother who wasn't too pleased that Dom (Diesel) and his crew had dispatched with fatally, and that vengeful brother is played by Jason Statham. This new photo gives us a look at The Transporter's slick ride: a gorgeous Aston Martin.
After completing The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy with The World's End this past summer, director Edgar Wright is wasting no time getting back behind the camera. As everyone knows by now, the director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is taking on Marvel's Phase Three film Ant-Man. The film was teased at Comic-Con a couple years ago with a special effects test, but since then a leading man to play the title character has not been announced, and we've been unsure as to when the film would begin production. Well, today Wright posted a photo showing he's working on the film, but what does this mean?
With a release date set for June 13th, 2014, production on the action comedy sequel 22 Jump Street began today, and Sony Pictures made the official announcement without revealing anymore cast members besides Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube reprising their roles. The press release doesn't offer much in the vein of plot details either saying, "In the action-comedy 22 Jump Street, after making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But we do have some cool photos from the set. Look now!
Though we've had two official photos from the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, they haven't been photos from the actual film. The most recent shot featured director Michael Bay behind the camera while debris exploded around him and the crew, and the first featured Bay looking like Peter Pan as cast members Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor looked on, waiting to shoot a scene. Now we have the first photo from the film itself with Wahlberg and Reynor featured, and this time they're joined by female lead Nicola Peltz, who looks almost unrecognizable as she's grown up since The Last Airbender in 2010. Look!
Starting with the darker side of things on this Disney musical? Shooting only recently began in the UK on Rob Marshall's new movie for Disney titled Into the Woods, based on the Broadway musical by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine. This has a very eccentric and funky cast playing all kinds of fairy tale roles, but out of all of them to get a first look before any of the others, we have Meryl Streep. And she plays "The Witch", not labeled as "evil" but she certainly has that look. EW.com unveiled the first look at Streep in Into the Woods, and will likely have more photos of the rest of the cast soon enough. Until then, take a gander.
