Inhumans Trailer

Inhumans! It’s definitely a real show that is really going to be on the air very soon. And to prove it, a new Inhumans trailer has arrived to try to sell audiences one last time on the potentially confusing mythology on display. Most of all, though, this trailer knows the one very specific thing that might convince people still on the fence to watch: that big CGI dog, who gets his own little intro before the Marvel TV logo starts. Watch the new Inhumans trailer below.

Inhumans Trailer

Marvel Studios is adding another television show to their line-up of programming that takes place inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But much like the ABC series Agents of SHIELD, it seems this show is going to have its own world to play it that is more tangential to the MCU rather than having any direct relationship to it.

Inhumans adapts the Marvel Comics title of the same name, focusing on a royal family of mutants enhanced individuals who harbor certain special abilities. But when they have their lives uprooted by a military coup, they take sanctuary in Hawaii, where they may find the key to saving the planet.

Marvel and ABC brought an Inhumans Comic-Con panel to San Diego where they discussed the show and revealed some new details about what fans can expect from the latest comic book series to take place in the MCU. Read More »

Inhumans trailer tease

The full trailer for Marvel’s The Inhumans won’t be released until Thursday, but Marvel treated us to flashes of new footage in a teaser for the trailer today.

There’s not much footage here (about 11 seconds), but it is our first look at this long-gestating project. Let’s hope the rest of the series lives up to the show’s high aspirations.

black bolt actor

The tricky thing about Marvel’s Inhumans characters is that their leader, the closest thing these stories have to a main character, is a man of very few words. Mainly because those words can literally tear down cities and turn mountains into rubble. When it come to engaging in conversation, Black Bolt a very selective fellow.

Marvel and ABC’s Inhumans television series is gearing up for production soon and Blackagar Boltagon (yes, that is his real name) has officially been cast. Anson Mount, best known from his work in AMC’s Hell on Wheels, will play the tight-lipped superhero.

World of Warcraft

Briefly: Legendary may have showed off some proof of concept footage for Duncan Jones‘ upcoming Warcraft at Comic Con, but the film isn’t actually cast and shooting just yet. Production is expected to kick off for real early in 2014, and so the movie is starting to hit the casting process now.

The first report we’ve got about possible actors for the film says that Paula Patton is in talks for one lead role and that another has been offered to Colin Farrell. We still know nothing about the script, by Charles Leavitt, so it is impossible to say precisely what sort of characters the actors could end up playing. Patton is evidently pretty far along in the casting process, while Farrell isn’t yet set, and could still end up not taking the gig.

Update: A shortlist for the film also includes Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Prisoners), Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels), and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Fright Night). [Deadline]

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

Over the past several years, we’ve watched as director Jonathan Levine has climbed up the Hollywood ranks. His ’90s indie drama The Wackness received lots of praise, as did his cancer comedy 50/50, and he even managed to find new life in the paranormal romance subgenre this year with Warm Bodies.

However, we in the States have so far been denied the pleasure of seeing where it all began. Levine’s directorial debut All the Boys Love Mandy Lane garnered enough positive buzz on the festival circuit in 2006 that Dimension Films scooped up the distribution rights, but the company never actually got around to releasing the film. And so it is that, seven years later, RADiUS-TWC has only just scheduled a U.S. premiere date for the movie.

Our last couple editions of TV Bits have been filled with mostly good news, but today’s is more of a downer, what with shows getting axed, a guy getting hurt, and, well, do you consider a Fred Durst sitcom bad news? At least AMC has some nice things to offer, including a new trailer for Hell on Wheels and some intriguing dramas in the works.

After the jump:

  • Charlie’s Angels and Memphis Beat get cancelled
  • Olivia Wilde leaves House
  • Transporter star Chris Vance gets injured
  • Fred Durst signs a deal with CBS
  • Hell on Wheels gets a new trailer

‘Hell on Wheels’ Trailer: AMC Goes West

In March of this year, the show Hell on Wheels, a Western set during the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, started shooting in Alberta. The series is AMC’s latest foray into Big Television — ten episodes have been ordered to begin telling the story of a man seeking to avenge the death of his wife at the hands of Union soldiers. See the first footage, after the break. Read More »

When Hop came out last month, bringing James Marsden back into the public eye, I wondered one thing: where the hell is Straw Dogs? Rod Lurie scripted and directed a remake of Sam Peckinpah‘s polarizing film nearly two years ago, putting the movie into production in late 2009. Doing so attracted no small amount of negative attention, as the original film was one which sharply divided audiences but stands as one of Peckinpah’s most significant achievements. How does one make a new version, especially with James Marsden standing in for Dustin Hoffman? (No offense to James Marsden, but some simple truths must be faced, and one is that very few actors are equal to a young Dustin Hoffman.)

We’ve not seen any footage from Straw Dogs, and in fact we’ve had a peek at barely any materials at all. So here are some of the first real images from the movie. They’re not wildly exciting — neither will give you any idea of how Rod Lurie has actually handled the remake — but they serve to remind us that the movie does in fact exist. Read More »
