With May just around the corner, the summer of blockbuster is starting to heat up. And while we've still got a couple months to wait for some of the later releases in the season, the official start of the most profitable time of the year for Hollywood will bring plenty of hype for the films on the way. This time we've got a new poster for Pan, the fantasy adaptation from director Joe Wright, which means there may be a new trailer on the way as well, especially since we've only seen one trailer for the film, and that was back in 2014. None of the film's stars like Hugh Jackman are featured, but that's actually somewhat refreshing. Look below!
Over the next couple weeks, there's going to be a lot of Star Wars goodies that start surfacing online. This week brought the arrival of the entire Star Wars saga on digital home video for the first time ever, and next weekend will be Star Wars Celebration, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy are going to kick off the convention, and there are rumblings that's where the new Episode VII trailer will debut along with the first official teaser poster. But until then, we thought we show off some cute LEGO recreations of artist Drew Struzan's iconic Star Wars saga posters.
Following a proper reveal of Paul Bettany as The Vision in a heavily Photoshopped image of all the heroes in The Avengers: Age of Ultron yesterday, the new character finally gets his own character poster. The design of The Vision is pretty fantastic, and I can't wait to see him in action, something we haven't see in the trailers despite a tease of the character at the end of the most recent trailer. I'm very anxious to see how he fits in with the rest of the superhero team, especially since he seems to be the most otherworldly superhero besides Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Just a few more weeks before we see him on the big screen. Look now!
Hot on the heels of last week's new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road, a new poster for the positively insane blockbuster has arrived. This one showcases our two leads, Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, in the middle of the desert craziness we've seen on display in the trailers. While the tagline is cool, the way it appears on the poster feels like a last minute addition, and it may have even been better without it. Also, if you've been paying attention to the trailers, it looks like Max may need some serious rescuing, and that's where Theron's badass character Furiosa comes into play. Maybe Theron is the real hero of the story. Look!
The celebration of Back to the Future Part II continues as 2015, the year which Marty and Doc travel to the future, continues, and this time it's collectible arthouse Mondo checking in with an awesome new print from Matt Taylor. This print features the DeLorean time machine as it descends from the sky to arrive in the Hill Valley of the future, where flying cars are the norm. Taylor has taken the "Welcome to Hill Valley" sign from the film and replaced it with the title of the movie itself. And through the clouds, you can see the famous town square where the clock tower still stands, and plenty of Back to the Future action takes place.
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.
