A batch of new images from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have hit today, but Warner Bros., MGM, and Entertainment Weekly have hit upon an unusual and (in this case) appropriate way to present them all at once. The images are stitched together to form one giant image “scroll” that shows several recognizable scenes from the first half of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s novel.
That piece above is just part of the image, and those who know the novel will instantly recognize a couple of the scenes depicted. Nearly everyone will recognize the moment on the left, in which Bilbo (Martin Freeman) uses the sword Sting to light his way through an underground cavern inhabited by Gollum (Andy Serkis). The other images below show Wargs howling around goblin-lit fires meant to flush Bilbo and his company from trees on the far side of the Misty Mountains, and the first look at Gandalf (Ian McKellen) speaking with the man-bear Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt).
One version of the full image is below. Read More »

There’s one word to accurately describe the four new banners that have just been released for The Dark Knight Rises. That word is “woah.” People certainly didn’t have that reaction for the latest poster, and though most fans liked the character posters more, these banners raise the stakes. They represent our best look yet at the massive scope and size of Christopher Nolan‘s latest. Bane and his army take center stage here leaving us to wonder, how can Batman possibly triumph? Check out the images below. Read More »
Oh you can almost taste it. Posters, more posters, and now commercials and promotional images. Yes ladies and gentleman, The Dark Knight Rises is almost here. We’re about two months away from finally seeing the final film of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy, which also happens to be one of the most highly anticipated films of this generation.
After the jump, check out two new television spots from the film featuring new footage (strobe lights!) as well as a bunch of brand new, high-res images. Read More »
With Tim Burton in press mode promoting Dark Shadows, Disney took the opportunity to show a bunch of journalists scenes from his other 2012 release: Frankenweenie. Burton’s 3D black and white return to stop motion animation (after producing The Nightmare Before Christmas and co-directing Corpse Bride) is a re-telling of one of his earliest films, the story of a young boy who brings his dog back to life a la Frankenstein.
Burton specially edited together 26 minutes of footage from the movie to give an idea of the tone, humor and scope of what audiences will see come October 5. Not surprisingly, Frankenweenie is decidedly dark, but with a quirky, fun tone that escalates into something much bigger than the early trailers have suggested. After the jump, check out a video blog I recorded about the footage as well as some new photos from the movie. Read More »
You’ve seen them in trailers, clips, images and now /Film is proud to exclusively introduce you to the King and Queen of Disney/Pixar’s 2012 release, Brave: King Fergus and Queen Elinor. So, Fergus and Elinor, meet the online film community. Online film community, meet King Fergus and Queen Elinor.
Voiced by Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson respectively, the King and Queen are incredibly important to Brave as they represent the opposing views inside the main character Merida, a saucy Princess who wishes to be more outgoing and physical like her father, but is forced to try and be more prim and proper, like her mother. Those relationships are a key component in the film and, after the jump, you can see some brand new images of both characters as well as read their official biographies. Read More »
Pixar is being very careful with how they’re marketing their latest film, Brave. As I’ve already written, almost every single piece of the marketing has been from the first 30 minutes of the movie and only a very select few glances at the latter part of the story have popped online. The Japanese trailer had a few, same with the Japanese poster and now two new images do the same. They also give a taste at just how much action is likely to be in the film when it opens June 22. Check them out below. Read More »
I’m hesitant to call the images in this post “Joss Whedon Porn” but I think I just did. Marvel has just released six images from behind the scenes of The Avengers, several featuring Joss Whedon interacting on set with stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth. There’s even one of the writer/director himself, just hanging out with Captain America’s shield. The photographer knew what he was doing.
But that’s not all. You get a kick ass shot of Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye and even that cool Iron Man image you see above. I can almost not believe this film premieres in two weeks and opens on May 4. Read More »
