Breaking Movie News
Straight from CINEMABLEND's fiercely independent entertainment reporters.
Part of what J.J. Abrams and the other directors invited into George Lucas’ sandbox are learning exactly what is spelled out in these books: that this is a fertile landscape to explore, with thousands of viable stories that need to be told in some way, shape or form.
One could argue no project announcement at this weekend's Comic-Con carried the buzz of Legendary's Skull Island. Legendary's surprise trailer and revelation that this was their big mystery project threw the industry for a loop. The King Kong prequel/spinoff/whatever is now gearing up soon for a 2016 release, which suggests that they already have someone in mind to make it. And wouldn't you know it, that someone big just might be Joe Cornish.
Interstellar blew the roof off of Hall H at this year's Comic-Con. However, not everyone could be there to share the experience, so the next best thing is going to be experiencing the supposedly gorgeous trailer in theaters. That experience is heading to theaters sooner than you'd think.
The original idea was to shoot Fury Road and Furiosa back to back, to the point where the years-long production time was assumed to encompass both movies. Now we know that isn't the case, which suggests Miller and company put everything they had into Fury Road.
This past weekend, those attending the Marvel Studios presentation during San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a pretty terrifying new look at the central villain in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Paul Thomas Anderson and Joaquin Phoenix are aiming for a two picture hot streak with their detective noir/comedy film, Inherent Vice. Early reviews are coming in, and not only are they praising the film as a weirdly funny experience – but you'll never guess who's being pegged as the current MVP of the cast!
We decided to look through Hollywood and see who else needed a badass action vehicle. Age wasn't a concern: if CGI and editing can make a bunch of seventy year olds jump through fireballs in The Expendables then why can't older women pull of feats of ridiculous strength too? (Also: see Red)
Death and destruction are coming to cinemas this December. When we last left Middle-earth in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the titular dragon had been wounded by Bilbo and the band of dwarfs, but was still on its way to Lake Town - which he planned to burn to the ground. As a result, we can expect that things in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies are going to start off on a very dark note, and that's very much reflected in this new trailer.
The visuals are similar to what we saw in Robert Rodriguez’s first film, and that earned $158.7 million worldwide. That was back in 2005, though. Nearly a decade ago! Do audiences still care?
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige held serve over the Hall H panel, introducing press time with such massive celebs as Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll for the Ant-Man portion of the panel.
Miles Teller's star has been on the rise for some time, while J.K. Simmons has been a fixture of the independent scene for quite some time. But their collision in Whiplash could mean big things for the two actors, and we've got the trailer to prove it.
We really thought we were getting some juicy news about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his involvement in the DC Cinematic Universe. Why? Because he kept telling us that it was going to happen!
The Fear Monger: A Hellishly Great Horns Trailer And A Trip To The Further With Insidious: Chapter 3
Good day, ticklers of all things ribless. This weekend, San Diego is the scariest place to be in the entire country. Not only because of The Walking Dead’s "Escape" attraction that Comic-Con is offering, but because there are entirely too many people out there, and I’m guessing most of them are hiding very dark secrets beneath their Wonder Woman and Game of Thrones costumes. Be careful out there.
This could start to feel like the dregs of summer. It could. But it isn't. Do you know why? Because there’s something to get excited about, with an unexpectedly great comic book movie hitting the screen. We’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy coming at you with a little James Brown to keep the funk alive.
After making its debut during Comic-Con in San Diego last week, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 trailer has finally arrived online! As you can see in the video, it looks like Katniss has been called to fight again.
