The Hunger Games may be one of the biggest franchises in the world, but leave it to MAD Magazine to really boil it down. It’s just a movie about a world where kids kill each other over food. Sure, there’s more to it, but in the latest issue of the iconic publication, there’s a beautiful two page skewering of the franchise, specifically its latest theatrical incarnation The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and we’re proud to exclusively debut the image. Check it out below, along with some thoughts on the spread from MAD editor John Ficarra. Read More »

One of the biggest questions during production of Gareth Edwards‘ remake of Godzilla was the look and sound of the creature himself. Would Edwards stay true to the classic, original look of the Japanese monster or try something new? The answer, not surprisingly, is a little of both. We have yet to see a clear, full image of the beast but a special cover of the latest issue of Empire has the best look yet. In addition, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures — which will release the film on May 16 — has officially released audio of Godzilla’s mighty roar. Look and listen, below.
UPDATE: A visual version of the roar has been released, as well as a tease of the trailer, which hits 10 a.m. February 25. Read More »
There might be a lot of new stuff to see from X-Men: Days of Future Past today. Empire Magazine is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and will be revealing 25 different Days of Future Past covers over the course of the day. We’ll update as new installments come in. Maybe there’ll be some new footage, too.
The first features our best look yet at one of the versions of the Sentinels. Those are the giant robots which, based on early marketing, may serve a general military purpose in parts of the story’s timeline. Eventually, however, if the film holds true to the comic book story from which it takes its name, the Sentinels will be adapted to hunt and kill mutants. They’re relentless; a massacre is coming.
Other covers feature mutants and humans both familiar and new, including the Days of Future Past versions of Bolivar Trask, William Stryker, Toad, Magneto, Quicksilver, and many more. Bryan Singer’s portrait seems to be the midpoint of a giant scroll image, which now moves forward with the “future” version of Wolverine. So previous images of characters like Magneto and Charles Xavier will probably be duped with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Will the end feature the final Sentinel design? We’ll be updating this post as more covers are revealed, so check back throughout the day.
Update: As expected, the final cover is the previously-unseen design for the Sentinel of the future. Check it out below.

Last week, a three-poster array from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaked out that answered a major question about Marc Webb‘s sequel. The poster confirmed the film features at least three villains, including Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin (as well as Paul Giamatti‘s Rhino and Jamie Foxx‘s Electro). At the time though, the images were only low-res. Now, Sony Pictures has released the high resolution, official images, and you can blow them up and dissect the images to your heart’s content. Check them out below, along with a new synopsis.
UPDATE: Five new images, not from these posters, have also come online.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Previous live-action film incarnations of Optimus Prime have had a specific look, but for the fourth film, Transformers: Age of Extinction, things have been changed. The first official image of the character isn’t the best for picking out fine detail, but it looks like many vestiges of the leader’s truck disguise have been stripped away, leaving just one pissed-off robot. See the image below. Read More »
As we wait on the first trailer for Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which will be attached to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), a few new photos have surfaced to whet your spidey-appetite. Two are fairly innocuous, but the third reveals a scene we definitely have not seen yet. It’s not a super spoiler; it seems like something that could be in that trailer. But better to be safe than sorry.
Check out the photos below. Read More »
If X-Men: Days of Future Past wasn’t a simple summer comic book movie, people would probably be talking about it having one of the greatest casts ever assembled. Multiple Oscar-winners, Tony-winners, Emmy-winners, from top to bottom, Bryan Singer‘s cast for the fifth X-Men film, out May 23, is simply insane.
Many of those stars - Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage and so many others – are featured in the first batch of stills from the film. The trailer hits on Tuesday but, until then, you have this tease and these images. Check them out below. Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty excited to see Thor: The Dark World. Where I felt the first Thor was just okay, after the character’s emergence in The Avengers, along with the blossoming of his evil brother Loki, the prospect of seeing them both on the big screen again is quite exciting. And it’s coming soon. Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor, opens November 8.
Today, a whole bunch of brand new still images only add to that excitement. In them, you get a much closer look at Christopher Eccleston‘s bad guy Malekith the Accursed, some sweeping scenery and a few new glimpses of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander and more to boot. Check them out below. Read More »
