Logan Black and White Version

The earliest part of the marketing campaign for Logan came in the form of a series of photos from the set of the movie. By way of an Instagram account with the username “wponx“, 20th Century fox released black and white photos from the set of production. They were gorgeous pieces of photography, and at one time, fans thought there was a chance the entire movie might be black and white. But as we’ve seen, the movie was released in full color.

But you’ll get your chance to see James Mangold‘s black and white version of Logan on the big screen. Hit the jump to find out when and to learn more details on the Logan black and white cut. Read More »

Wonder Woman TV Spots - Gal Gadot

Some of the internet was abuzz yesterday about a supposed lack of promotion for Wonder Woman at this time with a little over a month to go until the film arrives on June 2. The logic behind this is that the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel for Wonder Woman has significantly less videos promoting the movie than Suicide Squad when the movie was at the same point in its marketing cycle. Forget the fact that Suicide Squad had a much larger roster of lesser known main characters they had to introduce as opposed to one of the most well known superheroes of all time. Clearly, there’s a conspiracy afoot here!

Anyway, it seems like Warner Bros. Pictures’ ears must have been burning yesterday, because they’ve released two new Wonder Woman TV spots, including one that gives a sneak peek at the villain Ares facing off with Gal Gadot. Plus, for all you dedicated Wonder Woman fans out there, there’s an Ultimate Ticket you can pick up that will let you see the movie as many times as you want. This is just the beginning of the onslaught of marketing we’ll see over the next month for Wonder Woman.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spots and get details on the Ultimate Ticket. Read More »

Rocket and Baby Groot sf

Guardians of the Galaxy was a pretty obscure comic before Marvel Studios introduced us to its heroes on the big screen, so for many of us, the first time we saw Rocket Raccoon and his tree-like friend Groot was in the movie as a pair of intergalactic bounty hunters. How did these versions of the characters meet? What kind of bounties did they score together before hooking up with Quill, Gamora, and Drax?

These questions – and plenty more – could be answered in a spin-off film, and Vin Diesel, who provides the voice of Groot, is hyping one yet again. But does that mean it’ll actually happen? Read more about a potential Rocket and Groot spin-off below.

groot final form

Baby Groot may be the star of the show in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but he won’t be a baby forever. And wait ’til you see him at his peak, Vin Diesel — forever his own best hype man — says.

According to Diesel, you haven’t seen nothing yet of Groot. In fact, the giant, hulking Groot we met in the first Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t even the final form of Groot. But we may see a “full-fledged” Groot soon.

Wonder Woman Sequel

Wonder Woman hasn’t hit theaters yet (though you wouldn’t know from the lack of marketing for the first solo female superhero movie of the modern age), but director Patty Jenkins already has an idea for a sequel.

There’s no guarantee for Wonder Woman 2 as of yet, since Warner Bros. has not confirmed a sequel, but that hasn’t stopped Jenkins from championing another solo film for the iconic female superhero and member of the Justice League.

Dwayne Johnson starts shooting Jungle Cruise spring of next year. Who’s someone the wildly charismatic actor wouldn’t mind behind the camera on the Disney project? Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins. Speaking of the DCEU, Robert Zemeckis has had a meeting or two about Barry Allen (Ezra Miller).

Sleight

Sleight hits theaters this week, and I loved this film when I saw it at Sundance last year. A few weeks back I sat down with director J.D. Dillard for an interview. We talk about how he started as a receptionist at J.J. Abrams’ production company Bad Robot, worked on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plus how the idea of Sleight came about, the fun and horrors of shooting a film on a super small budget, and his filmmaker aspirations. We also geek out over Matt Reeves’ Planet of the Apes reboots and briefly discuss his future projects: a mysterious project set up at Bad Robot, The Fly remake and his upcoming Blumhouse horror/thriller Sweetheart. We also talk about the possibility of a Sleight sequel.
