Avengers Age of Ultron - Joss Whedon

Nothing against Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man, but there are always going to be some fans wondering what Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man could have been. His abrupt last-minute departure after years of development signaled irreconcilable creative differences, with many speculating that Wright’s unique sensibility just didn’t fit into the Marvel mold.

But Avengers director Joss Whedon suggests Wright’s Ant-Man actually would have been perfect for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to him, it was the best and the “most Marvel” script the studio ever had. Read the Joss Whedon Edgar Wright Ant-Man comments after the jump.  Read More »

The Visit poster

M. Night Shyamalan has partnered with Blumhouse for his new film, The Visit, and the first poster is appearing in theaters around the country, and at CinemaCon. In fact, the film’s trailer played with some showings of Unfriended this past weekend, but that hasn’t gone online yet. Expect to see that later this week, on Thursday, but for now we can look at the poster design for the low-budget horror film. We know the film features two siblings whose visit to their grandparents’ farm gets weird, and this poster suggests some bad stuff happening in the house at night. Read More »

2015 CANNES DIRECTORS’ FORTNIGHT LINEUP

The Cannes Directors’ Fortnight is essentially a parallel festival that runs alongside the primary Cannes Film Festival, and the 2015 Cannes Directors’ Fortnight lineup has just been announced in full. It includes Green Room, from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier — aka one of our most anticipated films of the year. It also includes Sundance fave Dope as the closer, and Takashi Miike‘s Yakuza Apocalypse. Seeing a Miike film programmed in a festival like this raises our interest in the movie.

Then there are previously announced films like Arnaud Desplechin‘s The Golden YearsPhillipe Garrel‘s In The Shadow Of Women, and the six-hour Arabian Nights from Miguel Gomes. The entire lineup is below, and it may well contain other films that will carry through as some of 2015’s better entries. Read More »

Andy Fairhurst Star Wars Luke header

Hot off the biggest Star Wars weekend of the year (so far), the Bottleneck Gallery is releasing a beautiful set of official posters based on the original trilogy. The artist is Andy Fairhurst, who did this incredible set of Back to the Future posters a few months back. As he did with those, Fairhurst gives these popular films an etherial, yet recognizable look, and links an entire trilogy with the same basic concept. The result is a striking set of posters for one of the biggest trilogies ever.

The Andy Fairhurst Star Wars posters go on sale at noon EST. Check them out below. Read More »

Tomorrowland IMAX header

Until now, all the trailers for Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland have primarily sold wonder. A girl finds a pin that shows her another world. There’s a flying bathtub, giant robots, someone with a jet pack, and a rocket powered Eiffel Tower. Just a big hodgepodge of awesome.

A third trailer has now been released and it is much more focused. It’s pretty much an entire scene from the film, featuring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, with lots of what makes the film so unique. Clooney’s house is a Temple of Doom for the people chasing them, littered with crazy defensive gadgets aiding in the battle. Less is learned about the movie as a whole, but we see the potential this scenario has to show us anything is possible.

Below, see the latest Tomorrowland trailer as well as a new IMAX poster. Read More »

That includes Jeff BridgesMackenzie FoyRachel McAdams, and James Franco, with Riley Osborne as the little prince himself. Watch the Little Prince trailer after the jump.  Read More »
