Comic-Con Belongs to the Mad! Find Our Coverage Here
Since bits and pieces of plot information, villains and even the revelation of Iron Patriot armor have made their way online, we've been well aware that Iron Man 3 has been shooting since last month. However, today Marvel Studios has decided to officially announce the commencement of production along with a first look photo from the set featuring Robert Downey Jr. in his lab, and his expanded set of Iron Man armor, including the Mark 7 suit from The Avengers. It's a simple shot to get the fans excited, and hopefully we'll get some official word on the plot of the sequel from Shane Black headed to theaters next summer. Look!
Tonight the MTV Movie Awards entertained teens across the world, and while The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I took home Best Movie, thankfully The Hunger Games took plenty of awards too. However, the real star of the night was the introduction of a minute and a half of footage from The Dark Knight Rises introduced by Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale (who got emotional after seeing a couple clips of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight), Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's a breathtaking bit of footage with some great new shots of Batman, Bane and Catwoman. But that's not all!
The time is finally here. After the novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower hit shelves in 1999, it has since become a controversial piece of writing from author Stephen Chbosky as it has appeared on the American Library Associations list of most challenged books to keep away from schools and kids because of its treatment of drugs, homosexuality, sex and suicide. Well, now the story is hitting the big screen written and directed by Chbosky himself with Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians) and Emma Watson (the Harry Potter franchise) in the lead roles. Looks like it might actually be a worthy adaptation.
We Came From Them. They Will Come For Us. The epic tagline to end it all. Ridley Scott's Prometheus is already playing in the UK and most of Europe, but will finally arrive in US theaters next weekend, on June 8th. It will be playing at midnight in IMAX 3D all around the country, and to commemorate the opening, IMAX will be giving out exclusive limited edition midnight IMAX posters. Collider has debuted the actual poster artwork, which features a very unique, sleek and stunning design, a great way to end the marketing for this sci-fi spectacle. I love the Prometheus font and old school 70's grainy look to this - I want one, too!
There's only so much you can do with the Piranha franchise. It wasn't exactly rocket science to begin with, but 2009's Piranha 3D still ended up a scuzzy but entertaining gorefest. It wasn't so awful you couldn't have a good time with it, and additions like Christopher Lloyd's insane biologist and the opening nod to Jaws were actually noteworthy. The only direction to go from there is even bigger, which is what you might expect from something calling itself Piranha 3DD. Unfortunately, this follow-up doesn't go bigger — at least, not where it counts — and relies on being cheaper and scuzzier to pull off its thrills, none of which work.
Late last year a promo trailer surfaced for the new comedy from Broken Lizard called Babymakers from troupe member and director Jay Chandrasekhar, but the video was quickly taken down. Now the official trailer has arrived with Olivia Munn ("Perfect Couples")and Paul Schneider ("Parks & Recreation") playing Audrey and Tommy, a couple unable to conceive a child with Tommy shooting blanks in the bedroom. So obviously, the best plan of attack is to have Tommy's friends rob a sperm bank where he made a deposit years ago in order to make things right. Does hilarity ensue? See for yourself by watching below.
If you're a producer and your first five films are E.T., Poltergeist, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Gremlins, chances are pretty good you're going to have a solid career. As Steven Spielberg's producing partner, Kathleen Kennedy has one of the most impressive resumes in Hollywood history, and her films have earned over $5 billion at the domestic box office. Now, Deadline reports that Kennedy is taking that success to Lucasfilm, where she'll be the new Co-Chair alongside George Lucas, who announced he's stepping down from mainstream films in favor of experimental efforts.
After having so much success bringing the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes back to the big screen with Robert Downey Jr., Warner Bros is keen on having director Guy Ritchie bring some more classic literature to the big screen. Deadline reports Ritchie is now attached to helm a new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate adventure Treasure Island with Alex Harakis writing the script as his first feature film screenplay. Ritchie will also produce the film with his production partner Lionel Wigram and Kevin McCormick at Langley Park. Apparently Wigram has been developing the project for awhile now.
The first trailer for the new horror film The House at the End of the Street didn't do much to impress horror fans, and honestly the new trailer doesn't really bring anything new to the table to change that. Jennifer Lawrence, with plenty more star power behind her name after the success of The Hunger Games, stars in the horror film about a girl (Lawrence) moves with her mom to a new town and learns that their home is next door to a house where a double murder took place. Of course, there's a mysterious neighbor boy, maybe the haunting spirit of the murderer next door and all that. Nothing special. Watch?
Do you think you have what it takes to inspire Quentin Tarantino? The Weinstein Co. has partnered with Red Bull to launch a new contest around Tarantino's upcoming spaghetti western Django Unchained. Contestants will have two weeks (starting June 15th) to create and submit an "original multi-media piece", featuring footage from the Django trailer (now online here) or Tarantino's favorite spaghetti westerns, that will be viewed and judged by Quentin and his team. There has already been a lot of fan art made for Django, now they're asking fans to take it to the next level and actually "inspire" Tarantino with their design work.
The core of the Channel 4 News Team is already confirmed to return for Anchorman: The Legend Continues with Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner all reprising their roles. But what about some of the other supporting cast members? Well, when McKay talked about how the sequel finally got a greenlight from Paramount he mentioned that they were working on something to allow Christina Applegate to return as Veronica Corningstone. Now E! Online has word from Koechner (promoting Piranhaa 3DD) that Applegate is definitely coming back and Celebuzz (via The Playlist) has confirmed it.
Welcome back to another edition of Kickstart This, FirstShowing's weekly column dedicated to spreading the word about cool indie projects around the web that need your help to become a reality. This week we've got three interesting projects we want to spotlight: a gaming restaurant and bar called EXP in Vancouver, British Columbia; a series of sci-fi feature films called Space Command; and a documentary about the late Dennis Hopper called Hopper: In His Own Words. Take a look at these three new projects, sound off in the comments below, and don't forget to toss the filmmakers a few bucks if you can. Check 'em out below!
Face Your Future. Fight Your Past. Excellent tagline. A brand new UK quad poster for Rian Johnson's sci-fi Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, has arrived via IGN. Unlike the the first US teaser poster, this design doesn't feature any faces or actors, but rather only the kick ass time machine that we've only seen in B&W photos before. It's a simple but sleek design, I like it a lot. Thanks to a tip from @jayrunham, there's also a new viral site found from the random number scribbled on the wall in the poster - visit 07153902935.com. Hidden there is another new photo featuring Jeff Daniels in Looper as well.
Though it's been years since we've seen Michael Emerson as the creepy and mysterious Ben Linus on "Lost," the actor is still making waves on TV in "Person of Interest" on CBS, which might be one of the better shows you're not watching right now. However, whilst on hiatus from the crime thriller series, Emerson will make a return to high profile films for the first time since The Legend of Zorro in 2005. Deadline has word that Emerson has snagged an unknown role in the next film from Woody Allen, which is currently untitled and, as with all of the New York filmmaker's projects, has the script and plot kept tightly under wraps.
