It goes almost without saying that the vehicular stunts in this weekend’s Fast & Furious 6, as fun as they are to watch, bear no resemblance to reality whatsoever. For audiences that like their car action a little more plausible, however, can look forward to Ron Howard‘s Rush.
Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl lead the fact-based drama about the epic rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The new trailer eschews the inspirational angle from the previous domestic promo in favor of more philsophizing about the looming shadow of death. Watch it after the jump.

The true racing story Rush, based on the lives and rivalry between James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), looks like the liveliest movie director Ron Howard has made in quite a long time. We saw an international trailer for the film earlier this week, and now we’ve got the domestic version.
The UK trailer seen earlier this week is simultaneously more moody and more visceral, while this one is oriented more around character and feelings. It’s a trailer seemingly designed for an audience that has a certain expectation from a Ron Howard film. We’ll see which one turns out to be more representative of the film as a whole. For now, check out the US trailer below. Read More »

The Ron Howard project we’ve covered most extensively in this space is probably the fourth season of Arrested Development, but we’re also pretty pumped for his other big release of 2013, the Formula One racing drama Rush.
Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl play James Hunt and Niki Lauda, two real-life racing rivals that spent the ’70s neck-in-neck with one another. Their intense competition only intensified in 1976 after the latter suffered a horrific crash that put him in a coma, only to return to the track weeks later. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

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?
Check it all out below. Read More »

Marvel Studios has become such a moneymaking juggernaut that it is able to bring a diverse approach to casting. Look at some of the great names that have decorated Marvel movies in the past couple years: Stanley Tucci, Idris Elba, Hugo Weaving, and Tommy Lee Jones are just a few. The studio is pulling in other talents, too, and is drawing from the world of comedy to populate some of its second wave films. Chris Pratt of Parks and Rec is in Guardians of the Galaxy, and Kat Dennings returns for Thor: The Dark World.
Also appearing in Thor 2 will be an actor who cut his teeth on British comedy shows before appearing in one of the biggest US comedies of the past few years. Sounds like his Thor appearance will be a cameo only, and to spare those who don’t want spoilers, we’ve got the details below the break. Read More »
