Every now and then, when a big movie gets released in IMAX theaters, a special commemorative poster is handed out to fans who see the first showing (hey, that's us!) on the massive screen. Usually, fans just have to be happy with what they get, but in the case of The Avengers: Age of Ultron arriving in just one month, you can vote for which poster you want to receive. IMAX has revealed four possible posters that will be given away at the first IMAX showings of the Marvel sequel, but only one will be the winner. Fans can vote on Twitter with specific hashtags for each poster or just comment on the Facebook post here. Look!
We already know that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for more sequels after Terminator: Genisys, though that doesn't mean necessarily mean the aged iteration of the T-800 we see in this new trilogy reboot won't get destroyed (we doubt he will though). But he'll still probably suffer some damage, and a new motion poster from across the pond illustrates that in a cool way as the aged Schwarzenegger skin that covers the robotic exoskeleton of the Terminators is blown away to reveal the metallic cyborg we all know. It's a pretty cool little poster, but after seeing the full trailer, I'm still concerned about this one. Look!
Back in January, we finally got our first look at Fantastic Four, the comic book franchise reboot from Chronicle director Josh Trank. The trailer painted a pretty stark, heavy-handed picture, something like Interstellar meets The Dark Knight, but we still need to see more of the film to get a better idea of what to expect. We're not sure when a new trailer will arrive, but in the meantime, a new poster has shown up that slightly reworks an image that we saw in the teaser trailer. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell gaze at a beam of energy shooting into the sky in the distance, but this time Mara is slightly invisible and Jordan's hands are flaming. But Thing still has no pants and Teller isn't stretching. Look!
Last year, it was Marcello Mastroianni, this year it's Ingrid Bergman. The Cannes Film Festival has officially unveiled the poster art for the 68th Festival de Cannes, taking place this May in France. They explain: "Hollywood star Ingrid Bergman was a modern icon, an emancipated woman, an intrepid actress, and a figurehead for the new realism. She changed roles and adoptive countries as the mood took her, but never lost sight of her quintessential grace and simplicity." Bergman has been to Cannes many times for various films, working with filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, Roberto Rossellini and Ingmar Bergman. Take a look.
"Where is Hunt?" After some trouble seemed to be brewing over getting a real ending together for Mission: Impossible 5, which was worrisome since the film was moved to a July release instead of the later December arrival, the film now has a title, poster and a quick teaser trailer. Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation sees the IMF team battling a secret organization that is basically the antithesis to everything the team has been fighting for, and everyone is at risk. The teaser trailer shows action that's bordering on the silliness of Mission: Impossible 2, but there's also stylistic flares of the first film, so I'm not sure what to think. Watch!
If there are any Terrence Malick fans out there looking for more ways to display their love for the filmmaker's unique work in cinema, Mondo now has you covered. The collectible arthouse just announced that there's a whole series on the way that will honor the films of Malick, who has directed movies such as Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line and forthcoming films like Knight of Cups. But one of the more beloved films from Malick's filmography is Badlands, starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek. And the two stars are front and center on a colorful new print by Tomer Hanuka that is vibrant and just plain cool.
This fall will bring the final chapter of The Hunger Games trilogy adaptation (though Lionsgate is keen on making more films set in the sci-fi universe). And while the film is still two whole seasons away, the hype machine has officially begun with the first teaser poster featuring the golden Mockingjay taking flight, engulfed in flames. As we learned in February, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 will be the first film in the franchise to get released in the IMAX 3D format, with director Francis Lawrence saying the post-production conversion on the last film in China brought a "new level of immersion." Poster below!
Yesterday we featured a round of stunning posters created by the talented artist's who partook in paying tribute to this summer's forthcoming blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road over at Poster Posse. There were some incredible contributions that we highlighted, and today comes the second and final phase of their artwork releases with even more gorgeous work. Tom Hardy is prominently featured, but so are the orange desert landscapes and warm colors. It's a shame that real movie posters can't look like these pieces nowadays. There's absolutely no reason artists can't be hired to create the posters for movie studios. Look!
We've been keeping up with the production of Spectre, the latest adventure for Daniel Craig as James Bond, with production diaries and more, straight from the set overseas. And even though the film doesn't arrive until this fall, Sony Pictures has revealed the first teaser poster for 007's next mission. It's nothing special, since it just shows Craig armed and looking dashing, but it's still pretty early in production, so they probably don't want to give anything else away. However, if you look at the lower right hand corner of the film, we do get confirmation that Spectre will be released on IMAX screens when it arrives in November.
The summer isn't too far away, which means we're getting very excited to see Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and more in Mad Max: Fury Road in May. The most recent international trailer and theatrical trailer were chock full of beautiful imagery and absolutely insane action. This is going to be something to behold on the big screen for sure. And to keep the hype alive, Poster Posse has unveiled a batch of posters in honor of George Miller's latest return to the desert. There's some incredible artwork here, and this is just the first batch. We'll post more when they become available, but it's a great start. Look!
Since all the heroes have gotten their own posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron (with the exception of Paul Bettany as The Vision), it's time for the title villain to take the spotlight. Ultron (voiced by James Spader) finally gets his own poster, and it's a familiar shot that we've actually seen in a couple of the trailers. It's one of the sequences where Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who both got their own posters before the weekend, are still working with the villain. This should be it for the character posters, though we're betting Vision gets one after the movie arrives. Look!
It seemed a little weird that when the rest of the character posters for The Avengers: Age of Ultron were released before the third trailer arrived that Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) didn't get their own posters, especially since they were featured on the theatrical posters with the whole team. But it looks like they're just arriving a little late as the siblings each get their own poster. As we've seen in the trailer, they initially are working with Ultron (James Spader) and cause trouble for our heroes, but then end up joining them in the end. I'm interested to see what makes them turn.
Nowadays, character posters for films are a little excessive. We'll feature them every now and then when there's a huge roster of characters for something like The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we normally try to steer clear otherwise, and studios have started to do the same more recently. However, a batch of character posters for The Age of Adaline just surfaced, and while that might seem ridiculous for a romance, they've done it in a clever way. Each poster shows Blake Lively, who doesn't age in the film, in a different photo from each decade of her life, beginning in the 1920s and going all the way through the current year 2015.
After bringing tears to our eyes last year with The Fault in Our Stars, another adaptation of a young adult novel from author John Green is headed out way later this summer. Paper Towns is based on the book of the same name with Nat Wolff (a co-star from The Fault in Our Stars) and Cara Delevingne (future star of Suicide Squad) starring in the story of a girl named Margo (Delevingne) who loved mysteries so much that she became one, just when things were looking up for Quentin Jacobsen (Wolff) after meeting her. And so begins the hunt for Margo, which will bring more answers than Q may have expected. Now the first poster for the adaptation has arrived, which means the first trailer should be on the way soon. Look below!
