You’ll be able to see the new trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger this evening (it hits at 7:30 EST) but for now we’ve got a new poster that puts the heroic profile of star Chris Evans front and center. Advance word on the film, by way of a long-lead press screening or two, is very very good, and the movie is really starting to look like the summer action picture to beat. That new trailer will probably give us a better idea of what to expect. While you wait, check out the new poster below. Read More »

I always have high hopes for Lee Tamahori — coming out of the gate with a film as powerful as Once Were Warriors earns a lot of patience — but I’m almost always disappointed. Is that going to be the case with his latest film, The Devil’s Double, a lurid-looking potboiler based on a true story in which Dominic Cooper plays both Uday Hussein and the man coerced into being his safety double? Check out the trailer below and make your own prediction. Read More »

The last time we checked in on casting for The Bourne Legacy, it seemed that basically every male actor under a certain age was being considered for the lead. Now it looks like casting is narrowing down a bit as the film moves forward. We can’t say for sure which names have been eliminated, but we do know which actors are scheduled for screen tests at the moment: Joel Edgerton, Dominic Cooper, Luke Evans and Garrett Hedlund (who, along with Alex Pettyfer, seems to be up for every major role in Hollywood these days). A few other names are still in the running as well. Read more after the jump.

Earlier this week, just a short time after hearing that Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Robin McLeavy were the frontrunners for the role of Mary Todd in Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, we reported that Ms. McLeavy had been given the role. Turns out that was wrong.
In fact, Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been given the role, so she’ll stand tall next to Benjamin Walker against the hordes of the undead in early America. Read More »
We’ve known for some time now that a younger Howard Stark would be appearing in Captain America: The First Avenger, and that he’d be played by Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!, The Duchess), but to what extent is the character featured in the film? Will his role be a fan service cameo, or does he actually pertain to the story? How much will we find out about the master inventor who fathered everyone’s favorite technologically advanced superhero?
Find out the answer to all of these questions and more after the break. Read More »

Briefly: We saw Howard Stark, father of Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in Iron Man 2, played by John Slattery in his best Walt Disney tribute mode. We’ve known that the character would be a part of Captain America: The First Avenger, but not who would play him. Now Dominic Cooper says he’s the man.
Salon talked to Cooper about his work in Tamara Drew, and he confirmed (no quote, sadly) that he’ll play the younger version of the elder Stark in Marvel’s WWII superhero movie.
To recap, Cooper will join Chris Evans, who plays Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, and Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Toby Jones as Arnim Zola, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
