BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Neil Patrick Harris has shown incredible fortitude in the live setting of hosting a show. Like I said at the top, I think the Oscars got the right person… even if it took them a few tries before the producers of the show eventually landed on him.
Ever wondered why Mark Ruffalo replaced Edward Norton as The Hulk for The Avengers? Well it turns out that Norton himself didn’t want to continue playing the character, and even if he had been asked he wouldn’t have portrayed him anyway. But in making these comments he’s just completely contradicted previous remarks he made about his omission.
P.J. Soles and John Carpenter weren’t breaking ground with the topless shot in a horror movie. In fact, according to this list by Complex, Soles ranks as No. 3 on a chart of classic horror nudity, topped only by Julianna Guill in the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot, and Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve in 1983’s The Hunger.
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron has started sharing its secrets with the rest of us common folk. However, as much as they reveal in the teaser trailer on a surface level, you'd be surprised how many moments had us throwing our hands in the air, screaming "WTF?"
That’s what we’re starting to expect out of Interstellar, which has been screening for select groups (and earning rave reviews). A heady trip to the farthest reaches of our galaxies that also appeals to the heart beating in each audience member.
While Marvel has done a great job with its superheroes, they haven’t had the greatest luck with their villains. For every Loki or Alexander Pierce, there’s an Anton Vanko or Malekith to offset things. However, if the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is any indication, the insane robot Ultron may switch things up when he debuts next year.
Following the release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer comes the official poster, which reminds us that the Avengers will assemble in 2015, and Ultron is coming...
The folks at Marvel Studios are well mastered in the art of the tease. Not only do they manage to maintain an air of secrecy around all of their projects as they move through production, but all of their trailers bring big thrills and leave fans always wanting more. The debut trailer for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron fits this description perfectly. It now feels like we know a lot more about the film, but we’re also left with a bunch of burning questions.
It didn't take long after the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past for the franchise filmmakers to realize that they would need to give Evan Peters' Quicksilver a much bigger role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Audiences truly fell in love with the wacky, speedy mutant this past summer, and the sequence where he helps Magneto break out of the Pentagon is considered by many to be the best in the film.
The internet is nothing if not impatient. Even if you tell everyone that what they want is only a week away, that won't stop them from trying to get it early. As a result of this, the first trailer for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron is now online.
X-Men: Days of Future Past was not only one of the most successful blockbusters of 2014, but it was able to correct the path of the X-Men film franchise and set it in an exciting new direction. However, even with those accomplishments, it’s still not safe from the critical analysis of an Honest Movie Trailer.
The last time that Han Solo dressed as a Stormtrooper, things didn't exactly go super well. Sure, he was able to sneak into the Death Star alongside Luke, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, but the end result involved him getting shot at, getting stuck in a disgusting garbage compactor and almost crushed to death, getting shot at again, and then running for his life.
Keanu Reeves has gotten to play a variety of roles over the years, but one type of character he’s never been able to sink his teeth into is a superhero. Unfortunately for him, the two superheroes he’s expressed interest in playing also happen to be the ones who won’t be free anytime soon.
As I noted shortly after its release this past May, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla has a lot of trouble in the female character department. While the male leads Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe got to play solid characters and had an active role in the story, Juliette Binoche was killed off almost instantly; Elizabeth Olsen did little more than worry about her husband and look up in terror; and Sally Hawkins just mutely followed Watanabe around the whole time.
Just in time for Halloween, IKEA has cooked up an ad that pays tribute to one of the greatest horrors of all time. If you want to pick up on all of the references to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, you're going to have to watch this video forever and ever.
