Filmmakers, stars, and studio marketing teams will bend over backward to keep a film’s secrets, but the tie-in toy line will give them away every time. Okay, so “every time” is an exaggeration. But as we’ve seen recently with everything from Power Rangers to Beauty and the Beast, toys can be a rich source of information about highly anticipated and closely guarded upcoming releases.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we’ve known for a while that Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha would be the villain, the first trailer didn’t show her at all. So our first look at the character comes today in the form of a Funko Pint Size Heroes toy. Check it out below. Read More »
Back in the fall, we learned that Sony Pictures was reaching back into literary history for a new live-action and computer generated hybrid film by adapting Beatrix Potter‘s classic character Peter Rabbit for his own movie. The film has late night sensation James Corden voicing the titular bunny, and now we have our first look at the updated version of the character in his photorealistic animated form.

In February, I wrote a post theorizing that the JJ Abrams-produced Julius Onah-directed space station set thriller God Particle might be the third film in a Cloverfield film series. I even asked Abrams this directly, which he slyly responded, “Well, that remains to be seen.” Today my prediction has been confirmed: God Particle is Cloverfield 3.

We’ve seen a few iconic literary characters get live-action and computer generated hybrid films, like Stuart Little and Paddington. Now another classic character from literature is getting the same treatment.
Columbia Pictures is working on a Peter Rabbit movie based on the beloved series of books written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter with Annie remake director Will Gluck at the helm. And the movie has already lined up an impressive voice cast and one live-action star. Find out who has been cast in the Peter Rabbit movie after the jump. Read More »
As of now, Julius Onah‘s God Particle remains shrouded in the usual layers of secrecy that surround any project from J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot. But at the very least, we know this thing will have a killer cast. David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw signed up for the space-set sci-fi earlier this spring, and John Krasinski began orbiting last month. Now Elizabeth Debicki, of The Great Gatsby and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., will be joining them as well. Read More »

It’s really a shame that Man of Steel didn’t give Henry Cavill much room to show off his charm, because as the new trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. shows, he’s got it in spades. The big-screen remake of the ’60s series stars Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, who’s forced to team with KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to, I don’t know, save the world or something.
The specifics of the plot aren’t important. The key thing is that it offers Cavill and Hammer an excuse to engage in snarky banter, wear sharp suits, drive cool cars, and blow up shiny things. Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, and Hugh Grant also star. Watch the new The Man From UNCLE trailer, and check out a new poster, after the jump.

Briefly: Guy Ritchie‘s new take on the spy show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is growing fast. He’s got Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer to play US agent Napoleon Solo and the Russian spy Illya Kuryakin. They’re partnered though the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) to fight bad guys.
