Amazing Spider-Man 2 Stan Lee

Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for Smith in film number two, Mallrats, when Lee showed up – as himself – to spout a few gross words of wisdom to our hero, Brodie.

Now, almost 20 years later, Smith got Lee to return for his latest film, Yoga Hosers. Check out the image and more below. Read More »

A new panoramic process, the modern version of Cinerama, is on the immediate horizon. The ultra-wide screen projection process Cinerama had a brief heyday in the ’50s, when the 146° arc of the Cinerama screen was one of several challenges to television mounted by studios and theater owners. Now, giant-screen exhibition is limited to IMAX, a few dome projections, and special event setups such as the Warner Bros. domination of Hall H at Comic Con, where fully half the hall was wrapped in projection screens.

A company called Barco is now pushing a display tech it calls Escape, in which two additional screens are positioned on either side of a primary cinema screen to create a panoramic image. Now, the first Escape auditoriums are being finished, and The Maze Runner will be the first film to take advantage of them, starting September 19.  Read More »

American Horror Story Freak Show poster header

American Horror Story: Coven went off the rails somewhat, but the great thing about Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology horror series is that each season is a fresh start. The next season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, will see many of the same cast and crew heading to 1950s Florida, where a “dark entity” emerges.

While Murphy isn’t as secretive as some of his fellow showrunners, he hasn’t said that much about where the new run of episodes might take us. So it’s exciting to get our first glimpse at the cast in costume, including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, and so many more. See the new American Horror Story Freak Show poster and teasers after the jump.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Concept Art Poster from Comic Con 2014

Potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Proceed with caution. 

Marvel Studios Kevin Feige might be vague, but he very rarely lies. He told us Thanos would be in Guardians of the Galaxy years before it happened. He proclaimed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier would change the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it did. There are plenty of other teases that have yet to pay off, but which we believe will do so. One in particular concerns the Avengers.

Feige has long said what he loves about the team is that the core members could be changed along the way. Just because Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow are the team at the end of The Avengers and beginning of Avengers: Age of Ultron, that doesn’t mean they’ll always be the only team members.

Now, a new rumor suggests Feige’s prophecy will come true and Avengers: Age of Ultron will significantly change up the team roster by the end. Read the potential Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers below. Read More »
