That image above is the new(ish) update for the Avengers: Age of Ultron logo, which comes from the film’s just-launched official site. At this point there’s not a lot to see at the new portal, but there is something to hear. The new Age of Ultron website is backed by a looped track of music that provides a great indicator of the tone of the film — there’s a mechanized underpinning to the cue, which starts with a slow, moody pulse before opening up to swells of synthesizers and insistent strings.

Back and forth we go with Iron Man 4. Robert Downey Jr. isn’t doing it, then he’s maybe doing it, then he’ll do it if Mel Gibson directs, then joked he’ll do it if Howard Stern directs. Honestly, there’s so much out there about the film, no one knows for sure what’s happening.
That was, until, Downey Jr. hit the couch on Ellen. When asked about Iron Man 4, Downey told the host that “Yes,” Iron Man 4 is happening.
Below, you can watch that video as well as read a ton of highlights from his recent AMA including teases that he’d love to cameo on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, updates on the development of Sherlock Holmes 3 and a Perry Mason film, possibly playing Doctor Who, the shift in marketing for The Judge, the likelihood of a Weird Science sequel, a few cryptic Avengers: Age of Ultron teases and the controversy of his Tropic Thunder character. Read the Robert Downey Jr AMA highlights below.

“Some of the most beautiful destinations on Earth look like **** compared to the rest of the galaxy.”
A new website advertising Guardians of the Galaxy is guised as a galactic travel service, and it’s a company that has deep confidence in the appeal of its services. Galaxy Getaways promises a dream vacation, and the company’s website offers the chance to use street view to explore a couple of Guardians locations. There are a couple of minor games to play, and pages revealing quite a few fun details of the worlds we’ll see in the film.
Check out the promo video below, with just a bit of new Guardians footage, and then visit the site. Read More »
2014 marks the 30th anniversary of Ivan Reitman’s comedy classic Ghostbusters. And over the past few months, Gallery 1988 has been presenting a fully authorized art show to celebrate the occasion. It kicked off in New York, is currently in Los Angeles and will make a stop in Chicago on June 20-22 before heading to San Diego Comic-Con.
And though many of the pieces in the show have made it online, and some have even sold out, there’s been no place to view the entire exhibit in digital form. Until now.
Slashfilm is proud to be the exclusive online home of the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Art Exhibit. Below we’ve got five pages with almost 150 different pieces of art. Everything from limited edition posters to original paintings, sculptures and more. It’s an embarrassment of Ghostbusting riches and you can check it all out by clicking here. Read More »
Back to the Future fans surely know that next year, 2015, is the year Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future Part II. However, when the film was released in 1989, the possibility of flying cars, self-tying shoes and hoverboards seemed within the realm of possibility 25 years down the line. Now that 2015 is upon us, despite the odd viral video, we’re no closer to much of the tech. Or are we?
That’s the subject of an in-production Back to the Future 2 documentary called Back to the Future Again. Directed by John Plaskett, the film explores the technology imagined on the set of Back to the Future Part II versus how close science actually is to achieving it now that the year has arrived. Why can’t we make cars fly? Are Hoverboards possible? Will shoes tie themselves? All those questions will likely be answered in the film.
Below, read more about the Back to the Future 2 documentary and help its last minute push on Kickstarter, where funds are needed to officially license expensive footage from the original movies. Read More »
Since the release of his first film Clerks, Kevin Smith has cultivated a group of incredibly loyal, vocal fans. It makes sense, considering Smith’s story: that of the everyman going after the American dream; it’s a rags-to-riches story fueled with big risks, pop culture references and dick jokes. This is a man we could all relate to and be happy for.
That fandom just took a whole new leap, though, as Christopher Downie and Brett Murray have begun to crowdsource a film on IndieGoGo called Shooting Clerks. It’ll be a biopic of Smith and the struggles he encountered making his first film. This is no unauthorized effort, however. Smith fully endorses the project and will even cameo. (If it gets made, of course.) This is crazy, awesome, weird, meta stuff. Check it out below. Read More »

Everyone knows Louis C.K. as a brilliant comedian. Fewer people know him as a talented director.

In 1998 C.K. wrote and directed his first film called Tomorrow Night, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It starred then-newcomers Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and many others, but didn’t get picked up for distribution.
