There are two months left until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, which may seem like a painfully long time but is really nothing compared to the two years and ten months we’ve already been waiting for it. In the meantime, Marvel Studios is happy to tide us over with the occasional tidbit, like the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer promised earlier this week.

Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

ZOOTOPIA (Working Title)

Exactly one year from today, we’ll be sitting down for the opening weekend of Zootopia, the next big-screen adventure from Disney Animation. To celebrate that fact, the studio has revealed a new bit of Zootopia concept art showing off the story’s unique setting.

As promised, it looks kind of like a natural habitat “if you squint.” Basically, it’s the city an animal might build if they could design their own. Check out the Zootopia concept art after the jump. Read More »

Steve Martin in It's Complicated

Steve Martin will follow up his extraterrestrial landing in Home with a very different movie about a very different journey. He’s just signed on for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Ang Lee‘s upcoming Iraq War drama.

Also set to star are Garrett Hedlund, and newcomer Joe Alwyn as the titular Billy Lynn. More on the Steve Martin Billy Lynn casting after the jump. Read More »

Raiders of the Lost Ark

It’s usually hard sci-fi pics like Interstellar or Gravity that spark scientific discussion, but in truth you can look at just about any film through a scientific lens. You could consider the cognitive science behind cons while watching American Hustle, or try to sort out archaeology fact from fiction while watching Raiders of the Lost Ark. And this year’s Science on Screen encourages you to do just that.

The annual program pairs a movie with thematically linked lecture from a scientist, researcher, or professor. For example, this year Space Jam is paired with a talk about the physics of sports, while There Will Be Blood sets up a discussion about geology. Get all the details on Science on Screen, which takes place in a variety of cinemas around the US, after the jump.  Read More »

Jon Foo in Tekken

Jon Foo is the new Jackie Chan. Well, for the purposes of CBS’ Rush Hour pilot, anyway. The British actor, stunt man, and martial artist has just been cast as Detective Lee in the action-comedy series, based on the 1998 film starring Chan and Chris Tucker.

Transformers Age of Extinction

Before we close the book on another year in film, Brandcameo has one more set of awards to hand out. But these aren’t for achievements in acting or directing or sound mixing. These are for all the product placements that cropped up in the movies last year, from Reese Witherspoon‘s REI boots in Wild to, well, the entirety of The Lego Movie.

The winner for most brands in a single film shouldn’t be hard to guess (I’ll give you a hint: it’s in the headline) but smaller films like Nightcrawler and The Theory of Everything apparently still found ways to squeeze in a few notable brand mentions. Find out who won the sometimes dubious honors in the 2015 Brandcameo Product Placement Awards after the jump.  Read More »

Lego Back to the Future

Is there anything Legos can’t make better? If this Lego Back to the Future short is any indication, apparently not. Even one of the most iconic scenes from one of the most beloved movies of all time looks ever-so-slightly more charming when rendered in stop-motion with little plastic bricks.

Watch the Lego Back to the Future short recreating the film’s climactic clock tower scene after the jump.  Read More »

Ex Machina

Before Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson go gallivanting about some galaxy far, far away, they’ll be tangling with robots right here on planet Earth. Alex Garland‘s Ex Machina has Gleeson playing Caleb, a programmer selected to help his company’s CEO Nathan (Isaac) test his new artificial intelligence experiment Ava (Alicia Vikander).

At first all seems well, with Ava impressing both men. But as in every AI movie ever made, things don’t quite turn out the way the guys expected. Watch the new Ex Machina trailer after the jump.

Joyful Noise

Supergirl may have a new threat coming her way. Jeremy Jordan (The Last Five Years) has just been cast on the CBS series as Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech guy who works with Kara in her civilian life.

Which sounds totally innocuous unless you’re familiar with DC Comics lore, in which Schott is the alias of the supervillain Toyman. More on the Supergirl Toyman casting after the jump.  Read More »
