Transformers: Age of Extinction hits Blu-ray and home video next week, and Paramount has given us an exclusive behind the scenes clip to premiere. I introduce the clip in a lead-in I shot over a year ago from the Hong Kong set constructed in Detroit Michigan. The clip shows how Jack Reynor learned stunt driving for his role as Shane Dyson. Paramount has also released some other behind the scenes clips from the Michael Bay film; watch those as well after the jump.

A new piece of casting has added a significant piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence system is called J.A.R.V.I.S., voiced by Paul Bettany. And by now you may now, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the basis for Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However no one has ever questioned why Stark would name J.A.R.V.I.S. “J.A.R.V.I.S.” That’s because, in the comics, Jarvis is the name of Stark’s butler. In the movies though, he doesn’t have a butler. Where’s the connection?
The connection comes in on ABC’s Agent Carter. That’s where James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas) has just been tasked to play Howard Stark’s butler, Edwin Jarvis. Read More »
We know that Andy Serkis‘ performance capture studio The Imaginarium is heavily involved in JJ Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII, but we never considered to ask if classic characters like C-3PO would be computer animated or played by a man-in-suit. Well, apparently when JJ Abrams first called Anthony Daniels, he asked the British actor to voice our favorite protocol droid in the new series. As you know, Daniels not only voiced the character but played the droid on screen in a tightly created armored costume in the original trilogy, although the character was heavily CG animated in the prequels. So is C-3PO a performance capture computer animated creation in Episode 7? Find out the full story of the new C-3po Episode 7 suit, after the jump.

As great a character as Spider-Man is, his villains are often just as interesting. That’s one of the many reasons Sony is moving ahead with a Sinister Six film before they get back to The Amazing Spider-Man 3. They’re also moving forward with a solo film for one of Spidey’s most popular villains, Venom. That one will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, but we don’t know much about it other than that it is happening.
In a new interview, the director gave an updating saying Ed Solomon will start writing the script soon, and that choosing which character would be under the suit in the film hasn’t been an easy decision. Read the Alex Kurtzman Venom quotes below. Read More »
Jack Reacher is almost certainly going to find himself alongside a teen girl in his next movie. The first film adaptation of the long-running novel series by Lee Child was only a modest hit, but a sequel is in development based on the 18th Reacher novel, Never Go Back. In that book, Jack Reacher returns to the HQ of his former Army unit, only to find that the current commander has been relieved of her post as Reacher is implicated in an ugly chain of events. And there’s a young woman who could tie to the guy’s past. Now we’ve got a Jack Reacher sequel update: director Christopher McQuarrie probably will not return, and Child talks about the reasons for choosing this particular novel as the source. Read More »
These three Star Wars posters are so beautiful, we figured they needed to be featured twice.
Eric Tan is one of our favorite artists here at /Film but, unlike others, he doesn’t release a lot of prints. That’s because his day job is a designer at Disney. That’s cool on its own, but in the past few years, it means he gets to play in the coolest sandbox of all: Star Wars. Over the past few months, Disney has been sporadically releasing Tan’s posters for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and this week, he revealed Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Unfortunately, Disney chose to only release these Eric Tan Star Wars posters framed and that makes them quite expensive. But you should check them out below and read more about the beautiful posters. Read More »

Into the Woods is a sort of kitchen-sink fairy tale adaptation, combining the stories of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood with a big Steven Sondheim soundtrack and a massive star-studded cast. But the latest Into the Woods poster keeps things very simple. Check it out after the jump.
