the-hobbit-desolation-of-smaug-banner

Bilbo’s unexpected journey continues this winter with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and Warner Bros. has a new banner out to show off some of the sights to come.

Whereas the last film’s marketing campaign was stuffed with dwarves, only the prettiest and most popular make the cut this time around. (Though you can barely make out a few of the others in the background, if you squint.) Instead, the artwork makes room for a couple of new characters, like Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly) and Bard the Bowman (Luke Evans), along with old favorites like Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and Legolas (Orlando Bloom). Check it out after the jump.

UPDATE: We’ve added a secondand  banner featuring Lee Pace as the Elvenking, Thranduil and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman

Coming out of Telluride, Toronto, Fantastic Fest and now the New York Film Festival, most of the Fall movie talk has been focused on awards contenders. Among film fans, films like Rush, Gravity and 12 Years A Slave have all the buzz moving into the Fall. But the people who don’t follow festival coverage are still probably focused on the big blockbusters, and one of the biggest will have a new trailer Tuesday.

That movie, of course, is Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, opening December 13. In anticipation of the trailer, which should drop at 9am EST Tuesday, Warner Bros. has released three cool new banners. Check it out below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy

During Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man, Black Widow and Captain America are dealing with villains on Earth, Thor is back on Asgard and we assume Hulk and Hawkeye are around somewhere. But James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy also falls in the pre-Avengers: Age of Ultron release window. Just how connected its story is to The Avengers will be a big topic of discussion all the way up to August 1, 2014.

Based on comments and the Comic-Con panel, the prevailing belief is that Guardians (obviously) takes place in the same universe, but might not intersect with the Avengers gang before they tangle with Ultron. Now Marvel President Kevin Feige gives us a bit more information on that, revealing exactly when Guardians of the Galaxy takes place as well as who the main bad guy is. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Concept 3

One year after Guardians of the Galaxy was officially announced at Comic-Con, the Guardians of the Galaxy cast and crew descended upon Hall H with the first footage from the new movie.

Director James Gunn and stars Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Benicio del Toro, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Pratt were at the panel to present the reel, as well as to dish out a few spare details about their characters. Hit the jump to get the details.

John C Reilly Walk Hard

What Clark Gregg is to The Avengers, John C. Reilly could soon be to the Guardians of the Galaxy. HitFix is reporting the Oscar-nominated actor known for roles in Boogie Nights, Chicago and Step Brothers has been offered the role of Rhomann Dey in James Gunn‘s 2014 cosmic Marvel team-up movie. The role is basically a human go-between for the Guardians (Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana and more to be announced) and S.H.I.E.L.D. back on Earth. Plus, if you know the comics, he might have a little superhero in his future too. Read More »
