Earlier this month, some awesome artwork for X-Men: Days of Future Past surfaced online after Blurppy enticed some artists with one of their "Poster Posse" proposals. Now they're at it again, but this time they've used another forthcoming summer blockbuster as the inspiration, and it's a big one. Godzilla is on the verge of becoming a big deal again (literally, this is probably the biggest the King of Monsters has ever been), and with the film not too far away, we've picked some of the cool pieces that were submitted to pay tribute to the monstrous reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and they're pretty great. Look!
"How many times have we been here?" Tom Cruise has to die in order to win the war. That's what the new theatrical trailer for the action-packed sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow tell us as Cruise is forced to relive a battle that he only survived for five minutes to begin with. But with the knowledge that he can keep reliving this single moment in the war, we're betting he'll figure out how to live a lot longer, and he just might be able to save Emily Blunt too. Maybe it's just me, but I think this movie looks cool as hell. Has a Gears of War vibe to it, and I'm always a sucker for almost any film with a Groundhog Day spin on it. Watch below!
After just learning that only one original cast member from Jurassic Park would return for the developing sequel and pseudo-reboot Jurassic World, it looks like a rumor that has been swirling for awhile has finally been confirmed thanks to some concept are that has surfaced online. Last fall when the title and 2015 summer release date was revealed, we reported a rumor that the new film would be set in present day Isla Nublar, where Jurassic Park is now an actual attraction (likely called Jurassic World), as originally intended by John Hammond. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. Now two pieces of concept art seem to confirm that, showing off an impressive island-wide theme park. Look below!
Though the mind-blowing, sci-fi film Gravity didn't take home Best Picture, director Alfonso Cuaron still walked away with an Oscar for his work behind the camera, and it was well-deserved. And while the film is kind of old news now as we move on to the releases of 2014, there's still some cool stuff surfacing surrounding the impressive piece of cinema. In this case, Framestore, who was responsible for the insane visual effects that ran through the entirety of the film, crafted a bunch of poster designs to promote the film, but only a few were used. io9 has rounded up a bunch of the preliminary design sketches, and they even have the old 2012 release date, which just goes to show you how far in advance these kind of plans begin.
He's on the rise, making big steps into Hollywood with two major roles coming up. French actor Omar Sy, who won the Best Actor César Award for The Intouchables a few years ago, is already starring as Bishop in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, the actor has also revealed via his twitter that he's also officially cast in Colin Treverrow's upcoming Jurassic World reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise. Oh hell yes, this is awesome, Sy is a great actor and he's yet another stellar name added to the impressive cast of the new Jurassic Park movie. Maybe this reboot is headed down the right track? We can only hope.
While it's not quite as good as yesterday's poster featuring the King of Monsters destroying more buildings with his gigantic ass, this latest poster for Godzilla is still pretty cool. This time we get a look the giant lizard from behind, but we're a little closer than one of the other posters featuring Godzilla destroying San Francisco. Those spikes on his back are massive, and again, the size of Godzilla this time is almost unfathomable. How will we be able to stop this thing if an atomic bomb didn't do the job? Now we're just waiting to see how big some of the other monsters slated to appear in the film will be in comparison. Look!
We just caught a glimpse of more destruction in a new international trailer for the new version of Godzilla from director Gareth Edwards, and even though Bryan Cranston was once one of the most feared drug dealers in the country, he just can't handle a giant lizard roaming about. Now a new poster shows us why since the King of Monsters is just endlessly destroying cities. It's the sheer size of this new Godzilla that's truly remarkable, and that's shown off yet again with his giant ass taking up a lot of space, and a helicopter just watching it happen. If the second trailer for this flick is any indicator, this is just going to be awesome.
After being originally slated for release this spring, Relativity Media decided to delay the Spielberg-style, found footage, sci-fi adventure Earth to Echo to a summer release. Now the full theatrical trailer for the film from short filmmaker Dave Green in his feature directing debut has arrived, and it definitely has a vibe of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial with a found footage twist. A group of friends start receiving strange, encoded messages on their cell phones, but when their parents and the authorities don't have an answer, they take matters into their own hands and discover something otherworldly that will change their lives.
Following yesterday's viral reveal of the teaser poster and new first look photos for the Sundance selected sci-fi film The Signal, the first trailer has finally arrived. Thankfully, this full trailer is a tease in every sense of the word. We get a vague sense of the story, but the mystery is preserved and all of the cool twists and turns are kept under wraps. It has a flares of Chronicle and The Matrix, though Laurence Fishburne is in the interrogation role this time as Brenton Thwaites finds himself confined in some sort of strange base for an unknown reason. Alex loved this film at Sundance, and we can't wait for you to see it. Watch!
When Alex Billington and myself were at Sundance, we caught the awesome indie sci-fi flick The Signal. Now the film is poised for release this summer from Focus Features, and to kick off the hype machine, we have some viral goodies that just popped up. First off, the viral video led us to the website RUAGITATED.COM, and that's where we were given a special code to access the teaser poster featuring a pixelated Laurence Fishburne, and a few new first look photos from the film as well. This is seriously one cool little sci-fi flick with some impressive special effects and a cool, mysterious story. More details below!
"Whatever they're guarding so carefully, I need to be able to prove that it's real." The second trailer for Gareth Edwards' new take on the classic movie monster Godzilla gave us quite an awesome tease for the summer release. Now an international trailer shows off more of the destruction, complete with some new voiceover bits from a frantic Bryan Cranston. There are some really cool shots that just show brief glimpses of how big this new Godzilla is, and we're just glad Warner Bros. and Legendary are holding back their monster for the time being. It's nice to have a proper teaser trailer every now and then. Watch below!
"We don't know... what's out there..." 20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for Wes Ball's The Maze Runner, adapted from the novel of the same name by James Dashner, who also worked on the screenplay. This story is about a bunch of kids trapped in a brutal game (another Hunger Games follow-up) but the game is actually a gigantic maze they're trapped in. Directing is Wes Ball, of that short Ruin, who's making his feature debut with Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson & Thomas Brodie-Sangster in his cast. This actually looks pretty damn good, it has a nice sci-fi tinge to it, I'm looking forward to seeing what's out there. "I think it's time we find out what we're really up against."
For those who didn't pay attention to the BAFTA winners (the United Kingdom's equivalent of the Academy Awards), you might have missed that Gravity was considered a British film because it was produced by David Heyman and shot largely in studios across the pond. So it makes sense than director Alfonso Cuaron took one hour to sit down with the Los Angeles branch of BAFTA to talk about his whole career, including his influential childhood in Mexico, his time spent in film school and more. This took place in January before he won Best Director, so there's no talk about that, but he certainly dives into the making of Gravity, his previous films, and his tastes and influences in cinema. It's an incredible discussion. Watch!
After a new poster showed Johnny Depp loading as if it were accessed by dial-up internet, we have the first featurette for Wally Pifster's technologically centric sci-fi flick Transcendence. We get plenty of new footage in this highlight of the spring release, including an introduction to the primary computer system called PINN (Physically Independent Neural Network). We can't be sure, but it sounds like Sigourney Weaver. Otherwise, it's a traditional featurette with Pfister and Depp talking about the film's story along with the producers and other cast members, not to mention some real-world application. Watch!
