The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a finely tuned machine. Projects and story arcs are mapped out years in advance, and casting choices are made to last. Even so, real life has a way of mucking things up sometimes, and the latest wrench thrown into Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron plans may be Scarlett Johansson‘s pregnancy.

For years, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has said Marvel was interested in giving Black Widow her own film. From the character’s first introduction in Iron Man 2, it was obvious Scarlett Johansson‘s portrayal as the master spy was bigger than a cameo. Her role got bigger in The Avengers, will be even bigger in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and will expand again in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But that might not be the end. In a new interview, Feige confirmed development on a Black Widow film is still ongoing. Read More »
The arrival of the gorgeous Neil Kellerhouse-designed poster (above) for Jonathan Glazer‘s film Under the Skin heralded the arrival of a new trailer, which you can now see below. In fact there are two new trailers, a US edit, and a UK version, for the film in which Scarlett Johansson plays an alien who has taken human form in order to hunt her prey: men.
We’ve covered the film for ages, and it is finally about to see release in the US. These trailers are just as seductive as the other footage we’ve seen from the film — this isn’t a big effects-filled piece of sci-fi, but something a little more strange and possibly unique. Read More »

It costs a jaw-dropping $4 million dollars to get a 30-second spot in the Super Bowl. Can you blame studios, then, for wanting to make the most of their purchase by hyping up the ads in advance?

Additionally, the studio has unveiled a couple of new posters featuring the film’s main characters. Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Nine years after Birth, Jonathan Glazer returned to the festival circuit last year with Under the Skin. The film features an intriguing hook — Scarlett Johansson plays a sexy alien who seduces men and then destroys them — and the results look even stranger and less commercial than that description suggests.
The latest trailer does a great job of conveying a creepy tone, even as it turns out to be less revealing than the promos that came before. But that’s how Glazer wants it, apparently. He cut the new preview himself. Check it out after the jump.

Much attention has been paid to Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson‘s exceptional performances, Casey Storm‘s eye-catching costumes, and Spike Jonze‘s eloquent script, but the soundtrack for Her – from Owen Pallett, Arcade Fire, Karen O., and others — deserves some love too. Happily, the latest behind-the-scenes featurette spotlights one particularly lovely instrumental track, playing it over film footage and behind-the-scenes clips.
The feel of that particular video is wistful and bittersweet, but one of the best things about Her is that it’s also got a great sense of humor. Jonze seems to know exactly how seriously to take the film’s far-fetched conceit. But if he’d taken things a step further into comic side, he might’ve come up with something like Him, a parody sequel that imagines a woman falling for her operating system.
Watch both the Her featurette and the fake Him trailer after the jump.
