The page has turned from October to November and that means the Fall movie season is really kicking into high gear. Besides all the Oscar-hopefuls, Hollywood releases a whole other block of potential blockbusters, and one of the biggest this year will be The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Peter Jackson‘s second part of The Hobbit opens December 13, and will continue the story of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and a team of dwarves on their way to reclaim the riches of the Lonely Mountain.
One new theatrical poster and seven character posters for the sequel have just been released showing the principal actors — including characters played by Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace and Luke Evans – ready for action. Check them out below. Read More »

Briefly: James Gunn has completed filming next year’s Phase Two Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a legit teaser trailer is likely to land in the coming months. If we’re following the Marvel Studios marketing trajectory, though, we’ll get a teaser poster long before that. This image is not that poster.
What purports to be a new promotional image – though there are a few red flags – has now come online featuring Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) in all their glory, something a teaser poster probably won’t do. Check it out below. Read More »
Pumpkins, costumes, candy and horror movies have long been Halloween traditions. One of the newer traditions, over the past few decades at least, is The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror. Sick, twisted, and hilarious spins on Springfield’s most famous family referencing gothic film, literature and so much more.
To commemorate these incredible episodes, which now have 24th reincarnations, Acme Archives and artist Dave Perillo have collaborated on a poster. It’ll be release November 13 and you can see it below. Read More »
Next month’s release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has an interesting parallel to the film itself. When the original movie came out, expectations were high but impressive results raised them even higher. Because of that success, the release of the second film has fans and executives alike expecting nothing short of a mega-blockbuster. Sounds a lot like the film’s characters. Katniss and Peeta were thrust into the spotlight out of obscurity but after ultimate victory, their second trip to the arena is magnified one hundred fold.
To film something with huge expectations both on, and off, screen, director Francis Lawrence reportedly spend about $50 million more than Gary Ross did on the original film. One of those budget bumps was because of filming with IMAX cameras and, below, you can read about the budget and see the new IMAX poster. Read More »
Jason Reitman‘s new film, Labor Day, opens on Christmas Day, and it will be promoted via a new trailer on Halloween. That trailer hits at 9am PST tomorrow, and as a precursor we have a new poster. The film features Josh Brolin as an escaped convict who is taken into the home of a reclusive woman (Kate Winslet) and her son.
While the first poster and image (above) featured Brolin and Winslet in an ambiguous pose — is he protecting or threatening her? — this new poster uses a similar pose to communicate a more specific connection between the characters. Read More »
Sheriff Brody might think Quint’s gonna need a bigger boat, but you’re gonna need a bigger house. “Why,” do you ask?

A comedian and a folk singer go on a tour. One’s a success, the other is not, but they’re friends and, no, this isn’t the setup for a joke. It’s the plot of Folk Hero & Funny Guy, a new Kickstarter project that just went online. It’ll star Alex Karpovsky, who you know from Girls, Sleepwalk With Me and Inside Llewyn Davis as the “Funny Guy” and is written by eventual director Jeff Grace, who produced and starred in It’s A Disaster.
