With post-production in full swing on one movie, directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord are currently in-production on their next movie. That movie is 22 Jump Street, the college-based follow-up to the 2012 hit film starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. It’s scheduled for release June 13 and while a teaser trailer will likely be out before the end of the year, the directors have made even more work for themselves by crafting a viral spoof of an incredible commercial starring Jean Claude Van Damme. Check it out below. Read More »

Warner Bros. has something up their sleeves, but dammed if we know what it is. A poster tube has been spotted at a few major comic book stores, and in it is a very legitimate-looking poster for Wonder Twins. (The Twins are the Hanna-Barbera superhero team that’s part of the Super Friends.) The “film” stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis and is slated for a 2014 release. Here’s the kicker. This is not a real movie. So what the heck is the poster for and why is it arriving at comic book shops? Read More »
Here’s what we know about the bad guys in Marc Webb‘s 2014 sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Jamie Foxx plays Electro in a leading role. Paul Giamatti is Rhino, in a supporting role and Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan play Norman and Harry Osborn, who may or may not become Green Goblins. Several of those actors have also hinted that the film, which will be followed by two more sequels, is building to a Sinister Six storyline (think The Avengers of bad guys). But until we see a trailer, or more importantly the film, how far along this movie takes that idea will be up for discussion.
A viral marketing website keeps providing more clues, though. The Daily Bugle Tumblr continues to report “news” from the Spider-Man universe and in the latest post, three names are mentioned that tie directly into the histories of famous Spidey villains Venom and Hobgoblin. Read More »
Trades, blogs, magazines, and newspapers are all viable aways for studios to debut new assets. But in an unusual move, Lionsgate has chosen a fan to debut a brand new piece of art from the highly anticipated The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Maybe it’s because it was confirmed during Comic-Con, but I still haven’t fully wrapped my mind around the fact X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature Sentinels. Though we got a glimpse in X-Men: The Last Stand, everyone’s favorite mutant super team has yet to truly tangle with the huge, evil robots on screen.
Director Bryan Singer will finally change that on May 23, 2014 when X-Men: Days of Future Past is released. The film blends the casts of the original X-Men trilogy with the stars of the prequel X-Men: First Class to tell a time traveling story that will expand and change the X-Men universe. You can read much more about the movie here but, below, check out an official blueprint that’s been released of the Sentinels. Read More »
Peter Jackson has, finally, completed filming on his trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. They cast and crew thought they were done some time ago, until Jackson and Warner Bros. decided to extend the story into three movies. That meant everyone had to go back to Wellington, New Zealand this summer (well, summer in our hemisphere) to complete principal photography on The Hobbit: There And Back Again.
To celebrate the final day of principal photography, Jackson decided to live-blog the entire day on Facebook, providing some new behind the scenes images and insight into what occurred over the course of the day. See some highlights below. Read More »
