Later this summer Sharlto Copley will go into space thanks to Neill Blomkamp and the film Elysium. Before that, however, he has another sci-fi offering: the much more low-key Europa Report. The film follows a six-person team on their three-year journey to Jupiter’s moon Europa, and in an early report on the film io9 calls it “the most painstakingly accurate space movie we’ve seen in ages.”
We haven’t seen much from the film at this point apart from a quiet teaser, but now there’s a new poster and a bit more info on the film thanks to the report mentioned above. Read More »

Another day, another set of new posters for comic book adaptations. Tuesday brings brand new looks at both Robert Schwentke‘s R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as well as yet another banner for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Michael Shannon.
Both posters expand on previous ones, adding action and scope. In the case of R.I.P.D., that’s accomplished by adding a slew of new elements: vortexes, explosions, and hovering police cars. For Man of Steel, the task is simpler: pull back and fly away. Check out the posters below. Read More »
Several new posters have just been revealed, two for highly-anticipated superhero movies from which we’ve seen plenty already, and two from a film that’s still almost a total mystery. The superhero films are The Wolverine and Man of Steel, and their posters reveal the Silver Samurai and a flowing cape respectively.
Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End gets the third and forth new posters, which provide our first look at the film’s antagonists. These antagonists will be more fully revealed and explained in the first teaser trailer, out on Wednesday, but we’ll do some educated guessing below. Read More »
Part of the genius in the latest Star Trek films is how the screenwriters were able to reboot a franchise that already had ten movies, but keep the story in the same timeline. They did this, of course, by bringing back Leonard Nimoy through a time-travelling worm hole.
So though most people are referring to this month’s Star Trek Into Darkness as merely a sequel, in a way it’s also a prequel to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Those original films are the ones talented artist Matt Ferguson has tackled in a gorgeous series of posters. Check them out below. Read More »
The latest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel did a lot to convince people that the director of 300 and Watchmen was in fact the right choice for the film. The continuation of a certain tone from Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies doesn’t help, but Snyder’s casting choices — Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, and Henry Cavill as Superman — are persuasive arguments that his sense of direction for Superman is steady. And then there’s the range of action seen in the trailer, which brings the character to life in a way that few expected.
Now there are a couple new bits of marketing that don’t quite push our perception of the film in the way that trailer did. As the header image above suggests, a new poster focuses very much on Superman and his power in flight. The TV spot, meanwhile, looks to his birth family, and gives the voiceover reigns to Russell Crowe as Jor-El to explain his son’s potential destiny on Earth. Read More »
The recent Japanese trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s monster-smashing summer movie Pacific Rim doesn’t have much in the way of new footage. In fact, it’s basically an edit of a trailer released to the US a while ago, with a few differences. If you want pure giant robot spectacle in trailer form, check out the recently released WonderCon footage. Or have a close look at the new banner above, which depicts a showdown in the water near Sydney, Australia.
But this edit is worth a look for the introduction from the director, who explains that he was hoping to honor a number of Japanese storytelling forms and media as he made the movie. Read More »

No doubt about it: you need to see J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness in IMAX. It’s only the fifth major studio release (behind The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises) to be filmed with real IMAX cameras. It will have about 30 minutes of its run time in full screen, massive 70mm IMAX. Plus, it’s first of these studio IMAX films to ever be done in 3D, making it’s the first-ever feature length 3D IMAX release. A milestone.
So there’s that. And to convey the film’s size, IMAX and Paramount have released a brand new poster specific to this version of the film. The poster shows the Enterprise being chased by a ship that looks similar, but is several times bigger. That can’t be good for Captain Kirk, Spock and the crew. Check it out below. Read More »
