Ryan Gosling's directorial debut

Ryan Gosling spent some of the last year making his first feature as a director. Originally called How to Catch a Monster, the film is now called Lost River, and is set for the Un Certain Regard sidebar at Cannes. That’s the place where films that are either the product of newcomers to Cannes, or that are a little more unusual than the typical Competition titles. So that tells us something right there.

This film features Christina Hendricks as Billy, “a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town.” So, yeah. that gives us more to go on, and there’s also been a comment about Hendricks finding a “very surreal club,” which is presumably what that door leads to.

MALEFICENT featurette

From some angles, the fact that Maleficent retraces a familiar path is the whole point. The Sleeping Beauty villainness has remained popular over the decades, and Disney’s counting on that to turn her movie into a hit. At the same time, though, the studio would like to stress that Maleficent isn’t just more of the same-old same-old.

A new Maleficent featurette plays up what’s fresh about this take on the tale. It’s not a retelling but a “reinvention” of the story, according to screenwriter Linda Woolverton — but one that “respect[s] the classic,” star Angelina Jolie reassures us. Basically, as star Elle Fanning puts it, it’s “the classic story of Sleeping Beauty plus so much more. Watch the video and check out some new photos after the jump.

guardians avengers 3

On the calendar, Guardians of the Galaxy is the Marvel Cinematic Universe film that immediately precedes next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. That might lead some to think the new characters in James Gunn‘s sci-fi action film will appear alongside Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and the rest in May. Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige long ago crushed those hopes, saying Guardians of the Galaxy was almost totally its own story.

This is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though. It’s all connected. Thanos, who appeared in The Avengers, finally reappears in Guardians and those Infinity Gems that have been carefully placed all across the films, likely do too. Now, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy has just made everything nice and simple. He’s confirmed what we’d all assumed: Guardians of the Galaxy will tie into Avengers 3. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy photos poster

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend, and then all eyes turn to the skies. That’s where James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy takes place: in deep, deep space. There, an Earth-born transplant named Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) will be arrested and meet four other crazy creatures to form a formidable team to fight Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Those allies are Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). And if that plot sounds a little thin, that’s because the film doesn’t open until August 1 and Marvel has been pretty tight lipped about it. We’ll surely learn more soon, though, as it becomes the primary focus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A few weeks back, we saw the teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, the character elements from that poster have been uploaded as large, individual images. Each offers a great opportunity to check out the detailed designs of each of the main characters. Check out some Guardians of the Galaxy photos below. Read More »
