Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

They're backkkk!! Production is now underway on the Marvel Studios sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with James Gunn directing once again. Shooting has started and Gunn states, "I couldn't be more stoked." Gunn dropped the first official photo on social media, not actually a still from the movie, but rather an on-set shot showing the whole gang back together again. Chris Pratt returns as Star-Lord, joined by Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, plus Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper voicing Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Everyone's favorite intergalactic heroes can be seen silhouetted in the image below, with more to come as they continue filming over the next few months. Marvel is aiming for release in 2017.

First Look: Keegan-Michael Key + Jordan Peele + Cute Cat in 'Keanu'

Keanu First Look

Aw, what a cute little cat, I hope he makes it out okay. With 2016 just around the corner, Entertainment Weekly has debuted their annual first look preview, featuring a gallery of photos from many of the highly anticipated movies coming up next year. One film I'm suddenly very excited about is titled simply Keanu. While it sounds like it could be a reference to the badass actor Keanu Reeves (I still hope it somehow is), it's actually a story about two "blerds" (black nerds) who have to infiltrate a drug cartel to rescue a stolen cat named Keanu. Comics/actors Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key star in the film, which was also written by and directed by "Key & Peele" veterans making the leap into features. See the first photo below.

First Look: Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' Movie

Doctor Strange

Here we go. Marvel has unveiled the first photos of actor Benedict Cumberbatch in costume as mystical superhero Doctor Strange, for the upcoming Doctor Strange movie which is currently filming in London. However, they're just getting underway and Cumberbatch is still working on the physicality of the character. He told EW: "I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically… We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious." These images are basically early promo shots, to give us our very first look at the character as filming continues. See below.

Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy

Production is now underway on the new film from Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín. We just featured a trailer for his latest film The Club (highly recommended), now we have a first look photo for his next one. Jackie stars the immensely talented Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy, following her in the days after President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963. The film is in production in Paris right now, and this photo via Deadline shows Portman in wardrobe as Jackie in a nice living room. "Pablo is a masterful filmmaker, the cast is top notch, and we are thrilled to be working with him." I agree, he is a masterful filmmaker and I'm looking forward to seeing what he's whipping up with Portman in this film. In full below.

First Photos + Poster for 'Legend of Tarzan' with Alexander Skarsgård

Legend of Tarzan

More Tarzan? Yes indeed. While Guillermo del Toro never moved forward with his version of Tarzan, former Harry Potter director David Yates has been working on The Legend of Tarzan for Warner Bros. The studio has debuted two first look photos and a poster for the new Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgård as the jungle boy. He's now living in London and is called back to the jungle, where they "haven’t been [in] an awfully long time". Skarsgård explains to USA Today that "it's almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast… This is about a man who's holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out." Very interesting.

A brand new Shane Black movie?! Yes indeed! People magazine has revealed the first official photo from the upcoming Shane Black movie The Nice Guys, described as a "half whimsical private-eye movie" and "spiritual sequel" to Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the 70s-set story involves a private eye investigating the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in Los Angeles who uncovers a conspiracy.

The full cast includes Matt Bomer, Kim Basinger, Rachele Brooke Smith, and Ty Simpkins. This photo doesn't show much, just the two sitting together. Take a look below.

First Look Photo from Derek Cianfrance's 'The Light Between Oceans'

The Light Between Oceans

One of my favorite filmmakers working today is Derek Cianfrance, behind the films Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines. Cianfrance's next feature is an adaptation of M.L. Stedman's novel called The Light Between Oceans, about a lighthouse keeper and his wife living off the coast of Western Australia raising a baby they find. Alicia Vikander stars with Michael Fassbender as the married couple on the island, and the cast also includes Rachel Weisz, Emily Barclay and a few others. This first look photo of Vikander standing on a bluff over the ocean is a gorgeous photo and the only shot we've seen from this so far. This is a film I have been tracking closely and I'm already impatient to see, don't even need any footage.

First Look: Joel Edgerton & Ruth Negga in Jeff Nichols' Drama 'Loving'

Loving First Look

Get your first look at the new Jeff Nichols film before we even get a first look at the other new Jeff Nichols film! Jeff Nichols, director of the fantastic films Take Shelter, Mud and Shotgun Stories, finished a sci-fi film for Warner Bros called Midnight Special. They pushed it back to next March, so in the meantime, Nichols went on to shoot his next film. He's now in production in Virginia on Loving, a drama inspired by Nancy Buirski's 2011 documentary The Loving Story about an interracial couple jailed for marrying in 1958. The two starring as that couple are Joel Edgerton as Richard, and Ruth Negga as Mildred Loving.

Matt Reeves' First Day of Shooting on 'War for the Planet of the Apes'

War for the Planet of the Apes

All hail Caesar! This is awesome. Filmmaker Matt Reeves posted a must see photo to his Twitter account this weekend to commemorate the start of shooting on the next film, War of the Planet of the Apes. The shot shows a motion-capture person (the ape) approaching a horse with someone on it, on a very murky beach. Over at SlashFilm they say this beach is very reminiscent of the one from the end of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes, when they find the Statue of the Liberty. That would be a pretty obvious connection, but who knows exactly what part they're shooting here. Could be an entirely new scene but it's still very cool, and I'm excited more than ever to see Reeves continue this story. Filming just started on this Apes sequel.

First Look Photo: Matthew McConaughey & Edgar Ramirez in 'Gold'

Gold First Look

Time for a first look - just one photo via EW.com from the new film titled simply Gold, being directed by Stephen Gaghan. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez as an "unlikely pair" who team up when they find one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. The full cast includes Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bryce Dallas Howard, but none of them are seen in this shot. The photo is just Ramirez and McConaughey, face to face, in the jungle. We'll have to wait until a trailer debuts to get a better sense of where this is going, and if it turns out these guys are trying to save the jungle or profit from it. In the meantime, take a look below and stay tuned for more on this film from Black Bear Pictures/Hwy61.
