ENJOY THE SHOW
Though the teaser trailer for Ant-Man showed off a little bit of what we can expect from Marvel's second summer release this year, there was no glimpse of our villain, played by Corey Stoll, in the suit he eventually creates for himself to become Yellow Jacket. That's likely because much of the visual effects aren't finished (the sequences of a miniature Paul Rudd riding an ant in the trailer are from footage created for Comic-Con this past summer). But the good news is that we now have a glimpse at what Yellow Jacket will look like as a formidable opponent with some official concept art that has surfaced. Look now!
This weekend, Taken 3 hits theaters, and we hope this is truly the end for the series as the trailers and TV spots have indicated. But just because this may be the final chapter for Bryan Mills doesn't mean that Liam Neeson won't see more action. In fact, he's got another action thriller on the way this spring called Run All Night. The film teams Neeson up with Robocop reboot star Joel Kinnaman as father and son, as Jimmy (Nesson) is haunted by his criminal past, and only finds solace from his drinking. And soon, the past inevitably catches up with Jimmy, and his son ends up in danger as well. We have the first photos from the generic sounding new thriller, and they just as easily look like they could be from Taken 4 instead. Look!
Last month brought the first official image from this year's classic television adaptation The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Man of Steel lead Henry Cavill and Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer. We're still waiting for some kind of teaser trailer (though the film doesn't arrive until August, so we might be waiting a little while). But in the meantime, a second photo of our leading men has popped up, and it gives us a little comedic flare from the film directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch). It features Cavill and Hammer on a scooter, presumably somewhere in Europe, maybe in the middle of a chase. Look below!
Before the end of 2014, we got word that the once trouble western Jane Got a Gun was being delayed yet again. The film was initially set for release last August, but was delayed to February 20th, 2015. And the latest news revealed it had been pushed back another six months to September 4th, 2015. But it seems this release date might stick, and now we have some first look photos from the film starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. It looks pretty much how you'd expect a western to look. No sign of Ewan McGregor yet, but he may be in that photo of what is likely the gang giving Portman and Edgerton trouble.
After seeing the first photo of Jessica Chastain in Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming horror film Crimson Peak, we now have a glimpse of two more co-stars from the gothic haunted house flick. Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) also star in the film about a young woman (Wasikowska) who is swept off by her feet by a charismatic suitor (Hiddleston) and taken back to his ancestral home. There she finds more than she bargained for, including a jealous sister (Chastain) and more than a few skeletons in the closet. With del Toro at the helm, we're definitely excited.
Considering what a disappointment that Alien prequel Prometheus turned out to be, it would be a blessing if 20th Century Fox saw fit to get another director to enter the world that Ridley Scott created, but has since left stale. Enter District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, who has his film Chappie arriving in March, who revealed some concept art on Twitter for some kind of Alien project that he was working. Blomkamp began to tease the project on Twitter by saying, "Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph." However, we found that's a little bit deceiving after he revealed more.
Plans for an adaptation of the hit video game Bioshock fell apart back in 2011, and now Irrational Games doesn't want to force a movie unless it's going to be done right. Therefore, Bioshock is nothing but a pipe dream for fans wanting to see the story play out on the big screen. However, you can imagine what the film might have looked like as some concept art from illustrator Kasra Farahani (Star Trek Into Darkness, Thor) has surfaced online from Blastr (via SlashFilm). It doesn't give us a much better idea of what the movie would look like beyond the aesthetic we've already seen in the game, but it's some nice work. Look!
In 2010, Pixar Animation delivered a rather perfect sequel in Toy Story 3. Unfortunately, it looks like Toy Story will continue with a fourth installment, but that's not what this post is about. Instead, this is about the Toy Story 3 that could have been. Back in 2005, Disney Animation was working on their own new Toy Story without Pixar mastermind John Lasseter and his crew. There have been details that have surfaced online about the sequel they were working on, and now a whole slew of concept art has surfaced online, showing us what Disney had in store, and you'll probably be glad Pixar came back to do their own thing.
Just last month we got yet another new piece of concept art from Pixar Animation's forthcoming fall release of The Good Dinosaur. The film has had some trouble coming together, but recently named Peter Sohn as the official director after the Pixar brain trust took it over from director Bob Peterson (Up) to overhaul the animated story of a dinosaur who befriends a boy. Now another piece of concept art has surfaced for the film, and of course, it's just beautiful. Since the film doesn't come out until next fall, we probably won't get a teaser trailer for this prehistoric adventure until Pixar's Inside Out hits theaters on June 19th. Look now!
News on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens front has slowed down considerably since the release of the teaser trailer last month, but the excitement level is still high. That's why we're pretty sure you'll want to check out a couple new glamor shots of the Millennium Falcon, even if they're just from a Fortune magazine photo shoot with Disney CEO Bob Iger. One of the shots features the life-size version of the ship on the sound stage in London while the other comes from a blueprint-esque piece of artwork from the cover of the latest issue. Oh, what I wouldn't give to be on set and sit in the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.
The mountain climbing drama Everest doesn't arrive until next fall, and it's one of our 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. But so far we've only seen one photo from the film that has quite an impressive cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Hawkes as climbers facing the titular monster mountain that has claimed many lives. Now a new photo has surfaced from the film with Gyllenhaal as the most prominent climber. And while I'm pretty sure that's Brolin on the far right of the image (see it below), it's difficult to decipher just who is standing next to him. Look below!
Next year, Superman and The Lone Ranger are teaming up to fight an international enemy in the adaptation of the classic TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement). Henry Cavill plays CIA agent Napoleon Solo while Armie Hammer plays KGB agent Illya Kuryakin, and the two must put aside a rivalry to stop the evil THRUSH, an organization opposed by Russia and the United States. Now we have a first look at the film, and it looks rather stylish. However, I can't help but be reminded of films like The Avengers (1998) and Get Smart as mediocre TV spy adaptations. Look below!
We've already seen Amy Poehler and Tina Fey make a splash on "Saturday Night Live" but their team-up on the big screen in Baby Mama left something to be desire, despite being moderately amusing. But their next project coming next winter might be just what the doctor ordered. Formerly known as The Nest, the comedy is now called Sisters, and follows the comedienne duo as thirtysomething sisters coming home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale, so they decide to spend one more wild weekend together there, bonding, feuding and finally growing up. And today, we have the first photo from the film. Look now!
Mostly because the special effects on the film are still being done, we haven't yet seen any real first look photos from the forthcoming sequel Ted 2. There was a trailer that leaked briefly awhile back, but it was chock full of unfinished visual effects shots and it was taken down very quickly. However, we finally have the first official photo from the comedy that made it on our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. This time Morgan Freeman is coming along for some fun as a high profile civil rights lawyer, though we don't see him in this first look photo. Instead, it's Mark Wahlberg and the title bear getting ready to dive.
