The mystery of which other summer film Edgar Wright directed a shot in has been solved. Earlier this summer, the Scott Pilgrim director teased that he directed one shot in a summer film this year that wasn’t his own. On Thursday Wright, fresh off a brand new trailer for The World’s End, took to Twitter to reveal the film in question was indeed Star Trek Into Darkness.
Wright posted a photo from the J.J. Abrams set, which looks like it takes place on Kronos, the Klingon home planet, with an IMAX camera. In the film, Kirk, Spock and Uhura find more than they bargained for on Kronos, both in the locals and also the evil John Harrison. Check it out below. Read More »
Generally, doing a Q&A on Twitter is futile. With only 140 characters total, accurately conveying the question and answer in a single tweet is a challenge. The other option, spreading the answers over several tweets, just looks bad. It’s one of the reasons why Reddit AMAs have become more of the go-to for the interative, online question and answer session with the fans.
Hugh Jackman did a Twitter Q&A for The Wolverine on Thursday and actually came up with a clever new spin. He read tweeted questions and shot video responses to them. He discussed all matter of the July 26 film, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past. We’ve embedded all eleven questions below. Read More »
Michael Bay must have really liked working with his Pain & Gain co-stars. We know he’ll next be teaming up with Mark Wahlberg for Transformers 4, but the Oscar-nominee was not the director’s first choice. That honor goes to Wahlberg’s Pain & Gain co-star, Dwayne Johnson. Johnson revealed in a Twitter interview that Bay offered the lead role to him, but he had to turn it down because he’s starring in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. Read More »
Maybe it’s because Iron Man 3 is coming so soon, maybe it’s because we’ve started to speculate about the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two, or maybe it’s because X-Men: Days of Future Past is on the way. Whatever it is, my level of excitement for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine has started to dissipate in the last few weeks. It probably has something to do with the first trailer, which didn’t quite wow audiences, and seemed to go away from the original Chris Claremont story we’d believed The Wolverine was based on.
The film can certainly still save itself. It won’t be out until July 26, and the film’s director took to Twitter to show some interesting behind the scenes photos from the shoot. No Hugh Jackman here, but you do get an idea of some of the film’s gorgeous location filming and supporting cast. They’re extremely promising. Read More »
It all started with a tweet. That tweet above, to be specific. Monday afternoon director Edgar Wright tweeted that “Aside from The World’s End, I directed one shot in another summer movie. But which?” with the hashtag “I probably will not tell.” Twelve minutes later, he tweeted “Yeah. Some of you got it right.”
Many more people have replied to Wright after that 12 minutes but, looking just at the first few tweets there’s one film that’s mentioned way more than anything else: Iron Man 3. Which would make sense. Wright is set to next make Ant-Man, a Marvel movie, and a cameo would be very cool. Alas, Wright “exclusively revealed” that his shot is NOT in Iron Man 3. Back to the guessing game.
So, what movie could it be? Let’s speculate below. Read More »
From the looks of it, Bryan Singer has just given us our first glimpse at a mutant from X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director of the upcoming X-Men “Inbetweenquel” tweeted an image that is obviously the character Beast, who was played by Nicholas Hoult in X-Men: First Class (as seen above) and by Kelsey Grammer in X-Men: The Last Stand. Hoult will be reprising the role in the 2014 film so, it would seem, the image is likely him in some kind of makeup test.
How does it differ from his First Class look above? Check the image out below. Read More »

Zaillian, James and Scorsese optioned the memoir in 2012 and have been working on the documentary ever since; up until this point, they’ve been working with Ebert’s full cooperation. Read More »
