Hulk movie rights - Hulk Age of Ultron character header

For the last thirty years, no one seemed to give a shit about a movie adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. Universal made two attempts to bring the character to the big screen, once in 2003 with director Ang Lee and star Eric Bana and later in 2008 with director Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton. Both films failed to become big box office hits, the later despite a cameo from hot-off-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr., reprising his role as Tony Stark.

No one cared about the Incredible Hulk until writer/director Joss Whedon brought the character to the big screen in The Avengers with Mark Ruffalo playing Bruce Banner. And since that film hit in 2012, everyone and their mother has asked Mark Ruffalo, Joss Whedon and Marvel head Kevin Feige when we’ll see the big green guy get his own movie. And we’ve heard many excuses over those years. And now we might have an answer as to why Marvel is not making a Hulk stand-alone movie right now. Find out who owns the Hulk movie rights and lets take a trip down the history of developments for the Ruffalo Hulk stand-alone movie.

Bill Paxton in Grand Theft Auto

Game over, man! The Grand Theft Auto movie just got weirder, and perhaps more awesome. The BBC production features Daniel Radcliffe as Sam Houser, aka one half of the sibling duo that has guided Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto series to video game domination.

The film’s story revolves around a specific period in the company’s history, when Rockstar and GTA were under fire from firebrand Florida attorney Jack Thompson. And now we’ll see Bill Paxton in Grand Theft Auto as Jack Thompson, going a long way towards ensuring that we’ll be unable to look away from the BBC Films production. Read More »

San Andreas Dwayne Johnson pilot

Last summer, /Film checked out the first 4DX screen in the United States. 4DX is a theater that shows 3D movies, but also incorporates physical experiences to make the audience member feel like they’re experiencing the film in a new way. We concluded it was an interesting idea, but the first movie we saw – the long, boring Transformers: Age of Extinction – might not have been the best film for the format. We thought something that was shorter, and a bit more directly tied to physical movement, would be better. Something like San Andreas.

Well, San Andreas opens next month and 4DX is launching some new in-theater effects – snow, rain and warm air – just in time for the summer movie season. Below, read more about the new 4DX effects and see a clip from San Andreas, which stars Dwayne Johnson. Read More »

We’ve known what Ryan Reynolds would look like as Deadpool for quite a while — since the leak of the test footage that ultimately helped green light the film, and pushed away the image of the character from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But it’s only now cameras are rolling on Deadpool that we’re getting to see some of the other colorful characters who populate his world.

Now we have the first official look at the delightfully named Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by newcomer Brianna Hildebrand. Meanwhile, set photos have surfaced of Colossus, which is interesting because no actor has been announced for the role as of yet. Click through for the Deadpool Negasonic pics and more.  Read More »

marvel spiderman movie

In October 2014, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige took the stage in Hollywood and let the world know Marvel’s grand plan for Phase Three. Three months later, the biggest Marvel superhero there is - Spider-Manwas added to the plan. That happened when Sony, the company which controls the movie rights to the web-slinger, came to an agreement with Marvel over creative control of the character and allowed his incorporation into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

You’d think Spider-Man joining the MCU would have been a shake up of epic proportions. Not the case, according to Feige. In our interview for Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Marvel president gave us a little peek at how Marvel works by explaining that they had a plan already in place in case Spider-Man became available again. Read Feige’s quote about the Marvel Spiderman movie below. Read More »

new Vacation movie Walley World header

Walley World is officially open in the first two images from the new Vacation movie. The film, which is out July 31, is both a sequel to and a reboot of the original franchise as Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as the Griswolds and Ed Helms plays their son, Rusty. Now grown, Rusty wants to take his own family (including wife Christina Applegate) on the Walley World vacation he never got as a child. He tries, but as you can imagine, it probably isn’t going to go so smoothly.

Or is it? As the moose out front probably told you, in the first official photos, you not only see the full Griswold family you get a look at Walley World. A Walley World that’s apparently open this time around. See the new Vacation movie photos below. Read More »

Captain Marvel screenwriters

We just talked about the fact that Captain Marvel didn’t make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in part because the character isn’t cast or quite defined yet, and over the weekend we reported that the Captain Marvel screenwriters would be announced soon. Now we’ve got the names Marvel is trying to lock in, and they make an interesting new team: Nicole Perlman, who wrote the draft of Guardians of the Galaxy that got that movie on track, and Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote Pixar’s Inside Out.
