Watch Now - First The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer:
Now that Universal has a release date set for the long delayed The Seventh Son (which they inherited from Warner Bros. when Legendary Pictures moved away from the studio), they're looking at getting another fantasy young adult adaptation off the ground. THR has word that Universal is adapting Laini Taylor's first book in a fantasy trilogy, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, published in September of 2011. Michael Gracey (who is supposed to direct Tom Hardy as Elton John in Rocketman) will be at the helm of the film which will again feature a female hero, hoping to cash in on the craze surrounding The Hunger Games franchise.
"Let it be shown we chose to die on our feet rather than lie on our knees." As 2013 inches to a close, the movies of 2014 are getting nearer. One of the earlier blockbusters in the spring will be 300: Rise of an Empire, the adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel with elements of the story taking place before, during and after Zack Snyder's 3oo. Now a new full length trailer shows off tons of new footage from the follow-up, with a large focus put on Eva Green as the villainous Artemesia, and a little less time spent on our new hero, Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles, wearing a blue cloth so people don't get confused, I suppose. The visuals look like they just might outdo 300, but what about the story? Watch the trailer below!
Following the rumors that characters like Nightwing and Wonder Woman would appear in Batman vs. Superman, some casting possibilities emerged with Adam Driver circling the role of Bruce Wayne's former sidekick turned solo and names like Gal Gadot and Elodie Yung were potentially up for the Amazon heroine. Now Variety has confirmed that Fast & Furious franchise star Gal Gadot has officially landed the role of Wonder Woman in the gestating sequel to Man of Steel that will introduce Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight opposite Henry Cavill as Superman. And this isn't speculation as Zack Snyder has made a statement.
A year or so ago, the very idea of Saving Mr. Banks was one that inspired some jokes and no small amount of ridicule. "It's Disney saluting Disney" was a popular phrase, and I even once suggested it was potentially going to be the equivalent of watching Mickey Mouse masturbate. Well, now having seen John Lee Hancock's film, I can say that it doesn't deserve any ridicule, since it's a solidly good movie. That being said, it's got both the feel good quality and the tear jerker quality going in its favor, so I have no doubt that this is going to be a big favorite for the Academy. The question is, can it sneak up and win Best Picture? It's not the frontrunner, but it could very well prove to be a big spoiler when the awards are handed out.
Following the sudden, tragic death of Fast & Furious franchise star Paul Walker over the weekend, production on the sequel Fast & Furious 7 had been delayed indefinitely to allow the cast and crew to mourn, and director James Wan and the film's producers figure out how to proceed. The film is just over halfway in the can, but there are still plenty of key scenes with Walker's character left to be shot. Now The Wrap has word on a couple of possibilities, the most extreme would have production scrapping everything they've shot and starting over from scratch. But doesn't that seem expensive for a $200 million blockbuster?
"That's the sound of fucking freedom!" We've seen one trailer from the United Kingdom for the raunchy comedy Dom Hemingway starring Jude Law, and now a red band trailer shows us just how dirty the Sherlock Holmes star will get. Fresh out of prison, Law plays a wild man who not only makes of for lost time with tons of booze and boobs, but also gets right back into the thick of the underworld, wanting reparations for keeping his mouth shut and spending time in prison instead of giving up his mobster boss to the police. It's a shame this doesn't hit the US until spring, because Law may have been in the awards race. Watch it!
If you're a child of the 80s or even 90s, your nightmares might have been touched by Alvin Schwartz's grim and terrifying short horror story and urban legend collection Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Now those horror stories might come back to bite you in the ass as Deadline reports Saw writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have just sold a pitch to CBS Films to adapt that very book. However, the film adaptation doesn't sound nearly as terrifying as the book seemed to be as a child. The story will follow a group of outcast kids who stand up to their fears to save their town when nightmares come to life. Read on!
"Falling in love is kind of like a form of socially acceptable insanity." Though Scarlett Johansson may be ineligible for the Golden Globes (as if that popularity and bribery contest really matters), that won't stop audiences from soaking up her incredible vocal performance in Spike Jonze's charming new love story Her. For those who don't know, the story follows Joaquin Phoenix as a man struggling after a bad break-up, until he connects with Samantha, the new operating system of his mobile device. This new trailer gives us a second good look at the film with Arcade Fire's mesmerizing tune "Supersymmetry." Watch now!
In case you didn't notice, we updated our post featuring the leaked triptych poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with the official high-resolution version, and it offers a pretty crazy glimpse of Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin. While we're still not sure how all three of the villains featured on the poster will come into play in this sequel, we have some new images of Spider-Man in action, including a couple shots of him in Electro's lair (though one looks like a screenshot from a video game). In addition, there's a photo of Jamie Foxx in Times Square after turning all electric blue. Come back for the first trailer in just two days.
"And I shall call you Sting!" We're less than two weeks from the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which means Tolkien mania is kicking back in. While you can purchase prop replicas of the various weapons from shops like United Cutlery and Weta, swordsmith Tony Swatton of the YouTube series "Men At Arms" tackles making a full replica of Bilbo's sword Sting from scratch. While this isn't exactly showing us what it was like when the elves forged the dagger, it is a badass video showing us what it's like to make one of these for real nowadays. Yea, I'd like my own real-life Sting to fend off (Mirkwood) Spiders, too.
Continuing the hype for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, we already know that Will Ferrell is guest hosting SportsCenter on ESPN on Thursday, December 5th (same day the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives) as Ron Burgundy. Now we have a tease of Burgundy's appearance on the program, complete with an interview with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. But that's not all. For all you scotch lovers, Riviera Imports is releasing Ron Burgundy Blended Scotch Whisky (Great Odin's Raven Special Reserve) sometime this month. Check out the interview and details on the new scotch below.
Along with some first look photos we posted just last month, director Kevin Smith said he was hoping to bring his indie horror film Tusk to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival for a premiere. However, it turns out Smith has a couple more days of filming to shoot in Los Angeles once an unknown actor becomes available to play a small role in December or January. Since Smith wouldn't have time to finish the film before Sundance (in January) with that schedule, he's going to premiere the trailer for the film with one of the midnight screenings in Park City, which usually features some odd horror and comedy worthy of the late night time slot. Smith also posted a comic style flyer advertising the podcast the main characters host Look!
"I triple dog dare you...!" Ohhh it's on now. This is hilarious, and I can't help but post it. One of my (and everyone's) all-time favorite holiday classics is A Christmas Story, and one of the best scenes in the film is the one where a kid gets his tongue stuck to the flagpole and the fire department has to come. We've been following Improv Everywhere's fun new video series "Movies in Real Life" taking scenes and moments and repeating them in the real world, and this scene is the latest to be translated. And boy do they do this one right - with prosthetic thumbs, hidden cameras and kids in character. It's awesome. One of the best yet!
Following the success of Now You See Me this year, director Louis Leterrier is on board to direct the gestating sequel. However, we're not sure just when that film will get off the ground. But it sounds like the director of The Incredible Hulk may have another project to keep him busy until that sequel moves forward. Variety reports Leterrier has been hired to direct Grimsby, a spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen. The star of Borat and Bruno pitched the film to Paramount in August with Phil Johnston (writer of Wreck-It Ralph and Cedar Rapids) and has been looking for a director who can handle comedy and action.
