Robert Schwentke‘s comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. feels like it’s been coming forever. Filming began in the Fall of 2011 and release is scheduled for July 19. Along the way we’ve seen a few set photos, heard rumblings of behind the scenes problems, and wondered when the marketing would kick in. The answer to that last question is “now” as Universal Pictures released the first poster for the film at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The studio will release the trailer this week, attached to its sci-fi film, Oblivion. See the poster and read more about the film below. Read More »

We’ve seen promotional stills, character portraits, inspiration photos, and behind-the-scenes peeks from The Wolverine. We’ve heard all about the plot, the cameos, the timeline, and the themes. And so far, it all looks and sounds great. But a film doesn’t work unless what’s actually moving around on the screen does, and so far, we’ve yet to see a lick of footage from the James Mangold-directed film.
Fortunately, that’s all about to change. Mangold revealed today that the very first sneak peek will hit next week, followed a day later by the trailer. The timing fits perfectly with earlier rumors that the promo would be attached to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Hit the jump for the details.

Yes, that’s right, you now have an additional reason to see Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14. The film itself, Jackson’s first in a trilogy, was likely enough. But that release is also the first film ever in HFR 3D, and it will have the trailer (or prologue) to Star Trek Into Darkness attached. And now Zack Snyder has confirmed what we all expected: the second trailer for his Superman reboot, Man of Steel will be attached too. Here’s Snyder:
I can’t wait for ‘The Hobbit,’ so it will be fun to see our crazy ‘Man of Steel’ trailer and then enjoy ‘The Hobbit’ because that’s going to be great. It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action.

News that the first nine minutes of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness would screen exclusively with IMAX 3D prints of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14th was either incredibly exciting or incredibly frustrating. If you’re one of those lucky few who has a real IMAX theater in your town, you were probably excited. If not, you were probably considering driving to one. Well, don’t fret just yet. Paramount will allow everyone to get a dose of Star Trek goodness on December 14.
Non-IMAX screenings of The Hobbit (including those in High Frame Rate) will have the first official trailer for the May 17th film attached. Read more after the jump, including Chris Pine’s reaction to the IMAX news. Read More »
Marc Forster‘s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel World War Z ran into some problems a few months ago when it had to go in for extensive rewrites and reshoots late in the game. Starring Brad Pitt as the Guy Who Has to Save the World (very loosely based on the primary narrator of the novel, a UN inspector whose work documents a zombie pandemic) the film was pushed from a late 2012 release back to June 21, 2013.
The trailer for World War Z will hit on Thursday, but in the meantime check out a bit of footage thanks to an Entertainment Tonight tease for the show’s coverage of the film. The talking heads aren’t nearly as irritating as they typically are. OK, they’re still pretty irritating, but at least you’ve got a chance to get a look at what Forster has done with loads and loads of fast-moving digital zombies. Read More »

Maybe you were good and decided not to watch the bootleg recording of footage from Fede Alvarez‘s remake of The Evil Deadthat came out of the New York Comic Con. If so, and you can’t wait until tomorrow to see the teaser trailer, here’s a bit of footage that will give you a basic idea about what to expect.
What we see is grim, greenish, and even a bit grimy, and there’s a replication of the classic Sam Raimi POV shot that was one of the series’ visual hallmarks. And you’ll even get a look at the book of the dead (seen in part above) to tease what’s coming next. Read More »
