First 'Thor: The Dark World' Poster Brings Heavy Snow & Lightning

Thor: The Dark World

By the hammer of Thor! Next week, the first trailer for this year's other Marvel sequel, Thor: The Dark World, will be arriving online. But in the meantime, the first poster is here, and it has Chris Hemsworth as the demigod bringing the power of lightning through Mjölnir. It's a great tease for the November release, especially after seeing some unfinished footage from the production in the video preview for Phase Two of Marvel's cinematic universe. The Marvel sequel also features Christopher Eccleston as the villain Malekith the Accursed, and returning cast members like Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston. Look!

Hayley Atwell Says Peggy Carter Will Get into Action at Comic-Con

Hayley Atwell

Even though Emily VanCamp will take the female lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the original love interest and worthy companion of Steve Rogers from Captain America: The First Avenger will still show up in some capacity. Hayley Atwell (who is also interested in landing the role of Lara Croft in a Tomb Raider reboot) recently spoke with The Age (via Comic Book Movie) and confirmed that her character Peggy Carter has some sort of involvement in the sequel, but could not say anymore. However, for those looking for some serious action for the hardened woman of the military, there might be a treat this summer.

Will Ferrell & Jack Black Chase Each Other Across U.S. in 'Tag Brothers'

Will Ferrell and Jack Black

The two previously appeared in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in quite an epic bridge confrontation, and now Jack Black and Will Ferrell are looking to reunite as Tag Brothers. New Line Cinema snagged the rights to a Wall Street Journal article about a group of former classmates from Washington who have a long-running, nationwide game of tag that happens throughout the entire month of February. The group of friends is now in their 40s, and try to balance their professional and personal lives while trying to avoid being "it" in a game that has them breaking into each other's offices and homes. Epic!

Benedict Cumberbatch's Menacing 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Promo

Star Trek Into Darkness

Hot on the heels of that spectacular third and final trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, the film's villain now takes the spotlight in a short new promo featuring the menacing voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison. Seemingly taking a cue from General Zod's threat to Earth for Man of Steel (albeit with much less scrambled video), the promo basically acts as an vague exposition laden taunt to Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and the rest of the crew of the USS Enterprise. We're getting the strong inkling that maybe not everyone is going to make it out of this vengeful mission alive, but we'll find out next month. Watch!

Mike Wazowksi is Pranked Again on New 'Monsters University' Poster

Monsters University

When the first teaser trailers for Monsters University were released, they featured Sulley (John Goodman) pranking his new college roommate Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Now Sulley is back at giving Mike a hard time on a new poster for the Pixar summer release. Duct tape makes for some of the best pranks, and this one puts Mike up on the wall for all the kids to laugh at. It's good to know that these two become such friends after initially being enemies in college. Our own Alex Billington just saw the entire film at CinemaCon, and had nothing but nice things to say. Sounds like this Pixar sequel will be a delight. Look!

'Bad Teacher' Reunion: Cameron Diaz & Jason Segel to Make 'Sex Tape'

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz

Over a year ago, we heard of a potential Bad Teacher reunion between supporting actor Jason Segel and director Jake Kasdan for a comedy called Sex Tape. The story follows a married couple who take a night off from their kids, decide to get adventurous and spice things up by making a private sex tape only to wake up the next morning and find that it's gone. Initially Reese Witherspoon was desired for the other lead role, but The Wrap reports Sony is in talks with Cameron Diaz to take the other lead role in the film, which isn't surprising since she was said to be in the mix when Kasdan boarded the project last April. More below!

Watch: Lionsgate's New Animated Logo Brands Them as Major Studio


This finalizes it once and for all - Lionsgate is now a major movie studio and they want to show that off. After acquiring Summit Entertainment last year, Lionsgate established its foothold in Hollywood as the seventh major studio and looks to remain successful with a diverse but stellar slate of films in the works. At their CinemaCon 2013 presentation to wrap up the industry convention (where we saw the Ender's Game trailer, too) they unveiled their brand new animated opening logo that will accompany all of their upcoming releases and it's now available for viewing via YouTube below. I dig it, it feels as if they can rival Universal.

CinemaCon: Lionsgate Unveils an Exhilarating 'Ender's Game' Trailer

Ender's Game

"If you succeed, you will be remembered as a hero." Yes. The moment I have been waiting for. While I've clearly admitted that Neill Blomkamp's Elysium is my #1 most anticipated summer movie, I think Ender's Game just took the crown for my most anticipated movie of 2013. Lionsgate, who now owns Summit, held the final studio presentation at CinemaCon 2013 bringing trailers and glimpses of all of their 2013 movies coming up. But the one that blew me away, the movie I can't stop raving about now that I've seen footage, is Ender's Game. We were the first audience in the world ever to see the trailer and holy shit does it look epic.

Patton Oswalt's 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Pitch Gets Amazing Poster

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Infinity Gauntlet

If you're confused, here's the deal: On tonight's episode of NBC's comedy series "Parks & Recreation," comedian Patton Oswalt has a guest appearance and offers some sort of filibuster during a town hall meeting. Well, in an outtake, he improvises an entire plot for Star Wars: Episode VII and the crew just let's him ramble for eight minutes. While he starts off fine with important nerdy Star Wars details, he ventures off into nerd heaven and imagines a world where Thanos is the villain, using the reality gem from the Infinity Gauntlet to exist in the Star Wars universe, and from there it turns into a crazy movie. Someone with Photoshop skills has crafted this amazing poster for Patton Oswalt's pitch and it's just glorious. Look!

Garth Brooks Almost Starred in 'Twister' and 'Saving Private Ryan'?!

Garth Brooks

In films like Last Action Hero and Jurassic Park: The Lost World, we've been given alternate realities of movies including Sylvester Stallone in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and King Lear starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. But some of these faux realities may not be as ridiculous as initially thought. One such case is country musician Garth Brooks almost starring in Twister and Saving Private Ryan. Why are we just now hearing about this? Well, Lisa Sanderson, who’s worked with both Brooks and Merv Griffin, has filed a lawsuit against Brooks, saying that she lost out on money and opportunities because the famed singer is a “paranoid, angry, deceitful, and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime.”

CinemaCon: Fox Wows with 'Secret Life of Walter Mitty' + 'Wolverine'

Secret Life of Walter Mitty

At CinemaCon last year, Fox teased 10 minutes of footage from Life of Pi, which we all flipped for (watch our video blog from last year). The buzz began then and we all know it went on to win a few Oscars. At their 2013 presentation, 20th Century Fox (not 21st!) decided to pull the same trick with the Ben Stiller film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. And it had the same effect - the Oscar buzz for this movie officially begins today, it has that potential. Beyond that, they showed us footage from quite a few of their upcoming live-action and animated films, including Blue Sky's Epic, DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2, Ridley Scott's The Counselor and James Mangold's The Wolverine, too. Video recap below.

Sundance Drama 'Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes' First Trailer

Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes

At the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, there's so many films to catch, and so little time. One of the films that just didn't make it into our schedule was Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, but we've heard it's a surprising indie that is darkly humorous and even surreal and suspenseful. Jessica Biel, Kaya Scodelario, Jessica Biel, Alfred Molina and Frances O’Connor star in the film about the troubled Emanuel who becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbor Linda, bearing a striking resemblance to her dead mother, and their bond grows strong as they spend more time together. Watch!

Review: Joseph Kosinski's 'Oblivion' Baffles and Stuns All at Once


"Derivative" is the first word that comes to mind when describing Oblivion, the latest sci-fi actioner from Joseph Kosinksi (TRON Legacy, and we all know how that turned out). "Convoluted" has a strong hand here, too, but all of that is screenplay-based. Kosinski's execution is right on, and Oblivion, cliched and overcomplex as it is, strikes a very early, very entertaining summer chord here in 2013. With Tom Cruise, action star extraordinaire, at front and center, Oblivion blasts away before your eyes, keeping your brain occupied so it's not focusing on the flaws. You know, like all good, summer blockbusters do. More below!

'Game of Thrones' Director Boards 'Passengers' with Keanu Reeves


It's been over three years since we heard anything about the romantic sci-fi film Passengers starring Keanu Reeves, and that was before the film's writer Jon Spaihts became more widely known after scripting Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Now it sounds like his higher profile is getting the old script some attention as Deadline reports "Game of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" director Brian Kirk (who was once in talks to direct Thor: The Dark World) has come aboard the project to make his feature film debut. Reeves is also still attached to star in the film which sounds like Before Sunrise in space. More below!
