With shots that last less than a second, it’s possible to pack an impressive amount of information into a fifteen-second clip. That’s the case with this preview of the new trailer for the RoboCop remake. The trailer hits tomorrow, and this advance look comes from Entertainment Tonight, but thankfully it is free of talking heads and intrusive voiceover.
Puzzle out what this is really telling us about Jose Padilha‘s remake of the sci-fi satire by watching below.
Update: Additional video, both finished trailer footage and behind the scenes shots, has been added below. Read More »

After months of silence, Columbia’s Masters of the Universe is finally taking a big step forward. Unfortunately, it’s accompanied by an even bigger step back.
Terry Rossio, who co-write this summer’s The Lone Ranger, has been tapped to write the script for producers Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch. If you noticed that Jon M. Chu‘s name is not on that list, well, that’s the bad news: The G.I. Joe: Retaliation helmer is no longer attached to direct. Hit the jump for the latest updates on this long-gestating project.

Whether you’re depicting an ugly urban dystopia, or merely the end of the world as we know it, a lot of work goes into crafting scenes worthy of splashy summer releases. Today, we have two videos that show just what that labor entails.

Briefly: I keep thinking that Comic Con will see the announcement of a subtitle for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, or a title change of some sort. But with the new banner image seen above and accompanying title logo treatment, that seems to be off the table. The title of Marc Webb‘s sequel will really be The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We know most of the other big details, and you can look back at the last few official photo releases to see other pics of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Yesterday we saw the first official shot of Jamie Foxx in the fully villainous incarnation of Electro in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. That came courtesy of the cover of the new issue of EW, and now more images from the mag have hit the internet. One in particular gives us another look at Foxx’s bad guy, while some others focus on Spidey himself.
We’ll likely get a better official look at the Rhino, played by Paul Giamatti, at Comic Con next week. For now, check out the new pics below, and wonder if the Rhino and Electro are united in evil by their hands-free headsets. Read More »
We’ll almost certainly see a teaser trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 next week at Comic Con, but for now here’s the first official shot of Jamie Foxx as the villain Electro. We’ve seen Foxx’s non-electrified look in an official pic, and set pics showed us an early look at what you see above and below. But this image gives you Electro complete with post-production effects. He’s facing off against Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) on the cover of the new EW, and you can see the full image below.

Maybe Paul Feig hasn’t cornered the market on R-rated female-led comedies after all. Sony is moving forward with a sequel to 2011’s Bad Teacher, with Jake Kasdan returning to direct. Star Cameron Diaz is still working out her deal, but it’s expected that she’ll come back as well.
While the first Bad Teacher failed to live up to its comedy potential (IMO, anyway), it did gangbusters at the box office with a $216 million worldwide take. To put that into perspective, that’s more than either Horrible Bosses or 21 Jump Street made ($209 million and $201 million, respectively) but less than Bridesmaids did ($288 million). Get all the details after the jump.

Much as we appreciate big-budget blockbusters that aim to be deep or emotional or to impart profound life lessons, there comes a point in every summer when all we want to do is enjoy some expensive, well crafted mayhem.
Arriving just in time for that moment this year is Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down. The first wave of reactions has just hit the web, and by most accounts (including Peter’s and Germain’s) it’s the perfect summer blockbuster: big, silly, and dumb, in the best possible way. Hit the jump to get the buzz.
