Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 is the first promising tentpole of the summer, in part because of the presence of Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) himself behind the camera. But a few new cast members are also helpful when it comes to building anticipation, and one of them just got his own character poster.
In the film, Guy Pearce plays Aldrich Killian, the guy who develops the Extremis nanotech serum that drove a 2005 story arc in the Iron Man comic series, and which has been partially adapted into the plot of the new film. (The revamped origin of Iron Man from the Extremis storyline also made its way into the first Iron Man movie, as the origin of the character on film.)
We’ve seen Pearce briefly in footage for the film, and still don’t know quite how important he’ll be to the story, but the technology his character develops is definitely a big part of the evolution of Iron Man. Now we’ve got a poster featuring Pearce’s visage, below. Read More »

Earlier today we showed you some B-roll behind the scenes footage from John Hillcoat‘s new film Lawless, which stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Clarke, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska in a bootlegging tale with support from Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman. Now there is a red-band trailer to advertise the film’s August 29 release. In truth, there isn’t too much here that wasn’t in the couple all-ages trailers we’ve already seen — a bit of nudity here and there is what marks this as “adults only.” But there is an appeal to this trailer beyond that, as it leaves behind some of the flashy and too-modern feeling editing elements that some audiences found distracting in previous trailers.
Check out the not entirely new, but still relatively fresh look at Lawless below. Read More »
After a long development process, which nearly resulted in the film being canceled overall, John Hillcoat‘s latest film Lawless (formerly The Wettest County and The Wettest County in the World) is about to hit theaters. We’ve seen a couple trailers, and some great info graphics that collate info about the film’s tale of bootleggers and rouge lawmen.
Now we’ve got two good collections of behind the scenes B-roll footage that shows Hillcoat on set with key actors Jessica Chastain, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke, and Shia LaBeouf. Pete mentioned them in Page 2 yesterday, but some of this footage is too much fun to leave there. While some behind the scenes footage reveals how much trickery goes into making a film work (see the recent The Avengers gag reel and Captain America’s cheap-looking costume) other times we see just how legit some sets and costuming can look even without much post-production magic. That’s the case here. Check out ten minutes of footage below. Read More »
The Weinstein Company is banking on the popularity of The Dark Knight Rises to really elevate the public perception of Tom Hardy, and so now isn’t such a bad time to release a new trailer showing off TWC’s Hardy-starring film, Lawless. We’ve followed this one for quite some time, as John Hillcoat‘s bootlegging tale, scripted by Nick Cave based on Matt Bondurant‘s book The Wettest County in the World, died and came back to life over a year ago.
The first trailer was pretty great, especially as it showed off some crazed work from supporting actors Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman. Now there’s a new trailer that minimizes co-star Shia LaBeouf in favor of pushing Tom Hardy to the fore; I don’t think many people are going to mind.
In addition, TWC has released an infographic breaking down the guns used by the main characters. Not a typical marketing tactic, but it’s a neat little chart. Check out both below. Read More »
Usually when a film opens, its viral campaign is over. Not the case with Prometheus. Ridley Scott‘s latest film is one that encourages a lot of conversation (obviously) and, if you stay to the end of the credits, the conversation continues online. There a website called What Is 10-11-12? is revealed which features a video of Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) preparing for his TED talk as well as an image of the book Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche. What does it all mean? We’ll try to point you in the right direction after the jump. Read More »

I don’t necessarily love this current trend of churning out character posters for every single actor in an ensemble cast, but when the line-up is as good as this one, I can’t complain. Seven new character posters have dropped for John Hillcoat‘s Prohibition-era thriller Lawless, showing stars Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, and Mia Wasikowska each trying their best to give off a tough-guy (or girl) glower. Check ‘em out after the jump.
