Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander star in Testament of Youth as friends, and potential lovers, who are separated by the insanity of the First World War. Based on the memoir by Vera Brittain, considered one of the primary accounts of the war from a woman’s perspective, the film follows the dawning independence of Brittain (Vikander), and the relationship she forges with her brother’s friend, played by Harington. In this Testament of Youth UK trailer we’re treated to some glowing pullquotes, but also to many visions of England and Europe during the years before and during the war. This is a much more effective look at the film than the last trailer we saw; have a look below. Read More »

Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.
Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.
Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.

Marvel released a lengthy, detailed Agent Carter synopsis today that reveals exactly what Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is doing for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), how Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) gets involved, and much more.

After years of anticipation and months of controversy, Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man starts filming on Monday, August 18. Then it’ll be a race to the finish as the director will have less than a year to complete the film, which is set for release July 17, 2015. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for improvisation, but in between Edgar Wright leaving the project and the start of shooting, a lot of work has been done to change the film and also add more connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Latino Review now reports on a few characters which will potentially cameo in the film, connecting Ant-Man to the larger world both in the movies and on TV. Read about the Ant-Man cameos below.

Last week ABC gave the green light to the Captain America spin-off series Agent Carter, starring Hayley Atwell. The series will effectively jump off from the Agent Carter One-Shot short film included on the Iron Man 3 blu-ray, using that short as a pilot to launch the series. ABC also renewed Agents of SHIELD, and given the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we figured the two series would be related. Now, with the release of some official art (above) and info, we know they will be tightly woven together. Read More »
