We’re deep into the summer movie season now, with massive tentpoles like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World already behind us. But fear not — there are still more fun times ahead, including next month’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
If you’ve ever seen a Mission: Impossible movie, you already know the drill. IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is once again on the run, and once again he has to engage in a string of death-defying stunts to save himself, his agency, and the world. And once again, it all looks jaw-droppingly cool.
Christopher McQuarrie directed this time around, and Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, and Alec Baldwin star with Cruise. Watch the new Mission Impossible Rogue Nation trailer after the jump. Read More »
Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick. And while the movie doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016, one of the cast members is wasting no time driving a wedge between our superheroes.
Jeremy Renner, who plays the skilled archer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye), took to Twitter yesterday with a little welcome card that teases the coming battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his friends are back in the latest trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Directed by Chris McQuarrie, the new movie has Ethan going on the run after he’s disavowed by the government (again), while grappling with a mysterious enemy (again). The plane stunt, though? That’s all new. Watch the new Mission Impossible Rogue Nation trailer after the jump. Read More »
For ten movies we’ve been waiting to see an entire movie of the Avengers being “The Avengers.” Sure, we’ve seen some crossovers. We’ve seen what the team could do when aliens invaded. We’ve even seen an alien pseudo-Avengers assemble in Guardians of the Galaxy. But up until Avengers: Age of Ultron, we haven’t seen what would happen if six amazing superheroes spent an entire movie together, working together.
For that reason alone, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers Age of Ultron is satisfying. Beyond that, it a falls a little bit short of its amazing predecessor. When compared to the first film, Age of Ultron is more even, constantly exciting and surprising. There are huge laughs, there’s drama, some real character development, and some absolutely crazy action. That consistency almost makes up for the fact the film lacks the “Wow” moments of the first movie and that brand new feeling we got the first time.
Nevertheless, Avengers: Age of Ultron is a blast. Read the rest of our Avengers Age of Ultron review below. Read More »
Monday night in Hollywood, The Avengers made the most of one half block. The cast went from Jimmy Kimmel Live where they played Family Feud, analyzed fan art and were interviewed, then walked across Hollywood Blvd. to the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater. But you don’t have to brave the crowds and traffic to see the madness. Below, we’ve got the Avengers Family Feud video along with some other Kimmel videos and a selection of the best red carpet photos from the premiere. Check them out below. Read More »
Tony Stark might joke that he’s not the boss of the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is certainly the leader. The actor was in classic form at the Avengers: Age of Ultron junket over the weekend and used his Twitter to document the whole thing. He took photos with almost all of his co-stars, joked about Captain America: Civil War, and basically just gave fans what they wanted – access to one of the most anticipated films of the year. Check out some of the awesome Robert Downey Jr Twitter photos below. Read More »

For all the talk about how Furious 7 officially marked the start of the movie season this year, April’s actually a pretty mellow month for wide releases. May is when the action really gets going, starting with Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel has not been stingy about releasing footage for this highly anticipated superhero team-up. And while they’re bound to run out eventually, they’ve managed to squeeze out a little bit more for a final promo. Check out one more Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives in the UK and other countries in just a couple weeks, and hits the US on May 1. The first screenings take place very soon, after which we’ll probably start to hear far too much about the film’s secrets. But for now, there are brief blasts of new footage thanks to things like the new behind the scenes featurette, and these two new Age of Ultron TV spots. The best line in either of these spots comes from Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye, as he raises an issue that we’ve probably all thought about as the team prepares to battle the robot Ultron, and his army of other robots.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie dropped a little present for us on Sunday morning. They revealed the first Mission Impossible 5 trailer, along with a poster and title. That title: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. And, actually, it’s not even the full trailer. It’s a minute-long tease for the full trailer which will hit on Monday, March 23. Still, it’s the best trailer tease you’ve ever seen. None of this 20 seconds and no footage crap.

Expert archer Hawkeye was missing in action during Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we’re about to get a double dose. Of course, we know he’s got a major role in Avengers: Age of Ultron out in May.

Jeremy Renner‘s character joins an already jam-packed superhero cast that includes Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and probably even Spider-Man.
