We’ve seen Tilda Swinton play many different roles, with an eclectic variety of looks over the years. But we’ve never seen her in a getup quite like what she sports for Bong Joon-ho‘s new film Snowpiercer. If you can imagine a halfway point between an aged Princess Leia and a stern schoolmistress, you’re close to nailing her look.
Nine character posters for the film have arrived today, and they show Swinton and eight of her co-stars (Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Ko Ah-sung, Song Kang-ho, Octavia Spencer and Ewen Bremner) in their fairly grimy garb.
Why the downtrodden appearance for all? Well, Snowpiercer takes place on a train that carries some of the last remnants of humanity as it speeds across an icy landscape. The film, directed by the man who made Mother and The Host, produced by Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Stoker) and based on French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, could be the big genre film at Cannes this year.
Until we get a chance to see some footage, check out the character sheets below. Cross-reference them with these character bios for more info. Read More »

Snowpiercer is Korean director Bong Joon-ho‘s first English-language outing, but he’s managed to assemble a cast even the most experienced Hollywood directors would kill for, including Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Chris Evans, and Song Kangho.
We’ve seen little of those stars so far, aside from a poster here and a still image there, but today we have much better looks at all of them thanks to a series of character “passports.” Hit the jump to check them out.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Box Set was finally released Tuesday and, in it, Marvel opened the curtain a bit in regards to Phase Two. We’ve already seen too much from Iron Man 3, but we’ve seen almost nothing (official, at least) from the next three films: Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s no longer the case after this post.
A few concept images from Guardians of the Galaxy made it online Tuesday morning, along with a featurette, but now there’s much more. Now you look at stills from a Captain America: The Winter Soldier anamatic and concept images of how both Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastan Stan) will look. If that’s not enough, screencaps of Thor: The Dark World footage give us our first real, good look at that movie. And, for good measure, how about a few more Guardians concept images including Rocket Raccoon?

One of the most recognizable actors in the world could soon become a part of the Marvel Universe.

Jackson and Scarlett Johansson in the Joe and Anthony Russo directed film out April 4, 2014. Read More »
This year marks a big event for some movie fans, as three of South Korea’s biggest directors make their English-language film debuts. And the conversion is off to a rocky start, as The Good, the Bad, the Weird and I Saw the Devil director Kim Ji-woon stumbled with The Last Stand a couple weeks ago. That film is already fading from theaters. Oldboy director Park Chan-wook has Stoker coming up, and the film’s Sundance debut drew “love it or hate it” responses. I hated it, but there were some who felt quite differently.
Bong Joon-ho, director of Mother and The Host, will be the last to hit with Snowpiercer, an adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. In the story, the few human survivors in a post-apocalyptic future take shelter in a train, on which a revolt between classes begins to ferment.
The film stars an impressive cast, including Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-ho, John Hurt, Alison Pill, Octavia Spencer and Ewen Bremner. We’ve seen a few images and some concept art that sells the train’s grimy, unpleasant conditions. Now a poster for the film gives us another look, and reveals John Hurt’s appearance. Read More »

Not all mainstream superhero flicks to change love interests between installments. Even the womanizing Tony Stark been loyal to Pepper through three films now, four if you count the upcoming Iron Man 3. But given the big time jump at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier simply couldn’t stick with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), no matter how delightful she was.
Over the past several months, we’ve watched as what felt like every moderately famous actress under 35 tried to attach herself to Winter Soldier female lead. Now, at long last, Marvel Studios has found their lucky lady in Emily VanCamp. The 26-year-old actress is best known for her TV work, having starred in Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, and, currently, Revenge. More details after the jump.

After the dual disappointments of Killing Me Softly and Gangster Squad, I’m feeling a little burned out on mob movies at the moment. So maybe it’s just my mood that has me unimpressed with the new trailer for The Iceman. On the one hand, director Ariel Vromen seems to have a flair for visuals, the cast looks strong, and the fact-based premise is intriguing. On the other, it all looks so tiresomely familiar.
Michael Shannon stars as real-life hitman Richard Kuklinski, who allegedly racked up over 100 kills over a four-decade career. He makes good money whacking people for gangster Roy Demeo (genre staple Ray Liotta), until an incident involving Demeo’s underling (David Schwimmer) forces Kuklinski out of their operation. He then teams up with freelance killer Robert Pronge (Chris Evans), which comes with its own complications. Winona Ryder also stars, as Kuklinski’s oblivious wife. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
