Wild Card first look

There’s a new Jason Statham movie coming, and in the first look at the picture, you’ll find that the star looks so much like… Jason Statham. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” must be the mantra of everyone involved with any film starring the guy. So for the film Wild Card, we see Statham appearing, more or less, as himself. The trick this time is that the movie is a remake of a film called Heat — not the Michael Mann movie, but a mid-’80s Burt Reynolds movie scripted by William Goldman (The Princess Bride, All the President’s MenMarathon Man) based on Goldman’s own novel about a bodyguard and gambler who gets into bad stuff with the mob.

In an interesting twist, this film also uses the ’80s-era Goldman script, as the author never thought the original turned out all that well. (He’s right.) So this is a remake, but one that ditches the typical modern remake playbook. Read More »

Sherlock special

New episodes of Sherlock probably won’t hit the air, at least in America, until 2016. If we’re lucky, maybe late 2015, but nothing is set in stone. Well, that’s not entirely true. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who’ll both be seen in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will soon shoot a special episode of the show that will air during 2015.

We don’t know exactly what will happen in the episode as the finale of the third season offered quite the cliffhanger, but we have the first image that hints at the story. Maybe this episode won’t actually be in sequential order with the rest of the show. Check out the Sherlock special image and see for yourself. Read More »

new Terminator Genisys Photo

The most recent batch of Terminator: Genisys pics (really, the first official shots representing the movie) were not well received. Neither was the plot description that went with them. There’s a sense that all parties involved have some real damage control to do. Which is why it is odd that a pretty good image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in makeup as the aged T-800 has been half-hidden on the lot at Paramount. Studio lots often have such hidden early images and promotional gems, but most aren’t as useful to their productions as this one could be. Read More »

peterpan

“This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know.” That’s director Joe Wright‘s description of his Peter Pan origin story Pan, and so far he seems to be telling the truth. Case in point: the villainous pirate in this one is not Captain Hook but Blackbeard, played by Hugh Jackman.

The hero is still a little boy named Peter Pan, though, played by Levi Miller. Hit the jump to see the first Pan images featuring Jackman and Miller, plus the first Pan poster with Miller. Read More »

Kevin Dart Big Hero 6 Concept Art

We’ve previously shown you the original Big Hero 6 designs from the 1998, sketches which were made for the development of the original comic book that spawned the Disney animated movie. Today I wanted to share some of the early concept art for the Big Hero 6 animated movie created by Kevin Dart, an artist whose style I absolutely love. You may recognize his name as we’ve posted some of his art on the site in the past, and also we premiered his exclusive Interstellar poster which was available at the IMAX Friday screenings. Dart has posted some of his work on the film online, and the paintings include some development work on the San Francisco/Tokyo mash-up world of San Frantokyo, as well as early concepts of a very different looking Bay-max design more in line with the original character design sketches than the comic book source material. He also did designs for Big Hero 6 villains that didn’t end up making the final film. Hit the jump to check out the Kevin Dart Big Hero 6 concept art.
