Just when you think you have a handle on all of the rumors and spoilers for 'The Avengers 2,' a new and intriguing concept rears its head. Yes, it's once again time to play the "Marvel Cinematic Universe Rumor and/or Spoiler" game and this time, it's all about future iterations of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Spoilers ahead, obviously.
ScreenCrush wraps up the latest in movies and TV you might have missed. Today, an animation legend gets an Oscar, Batgirl takes the ice bucket challenge, and Netflix reveals its first look at 'Marco Polo.'
For awhile there, it looked like 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was in trouble. Harrison Ford had broken his leg in a freak Millennium Falcon accident and there were rumors that the production was going to be shut down for weeks! Months! Forever!!! And then Harrison Ford got better and the only real damage to the schedule was a two-week break where everyone made ice bucket challenge videos and refused to answer questions to prying reporters on red carpets.
And now, 'Star Wars: Episode 7' has officially resumed filming.
Our first look at Jon Stewart's directorial debut has arrived in the 'Rosewater' trailer, showcasing a side of this funnyman we've never seen before. After years of making us laugh and sigh as the host of 'The Daily Show,' the beloved comedian has stepped behind the camera with a film that doesn't look like it has a single laugh in its entire running time, but it looks harrowing and fascinating all the same.
Yes, I did have a morbid curiosity in regards to ‘Jersey Shore Massacre,’ a new movie produced by Jennifer “JWoww” Farley who is best known for her participation in the MTV reality television series, ‘Jersey Shore.’ She is not best known for producing movies. When ‘Jersey Shore Massacre’ was released into theaters last week, it wasn’t playing anywhere near where I live – but, now, it’s available for all on VOD. So, on Thursday morning, I purchased 'Jersey Shore Massacre' and watched it in the comfort of my own home. While watching, I kept a running diary. Here’s how that all went:
Instead of one full-length 'Foxcatcher' trailer (which would traditionally run around 2:30), Sony Classics has been issuing one-minute teasers for the film. We've got another new teaser trailer today, which focuses on Steve Carell's role as John du Pont (you can watch the previous teaser, focusing more on Channing Tatum's character, below). It really is remarkable to see how Carell has not only changed his looks (those teeth, my god, those teeth), but also his cadence. With labored breathing and long pauses, it doesn't sound like Steve Carell at all.
Just in time for the release of 'Gone Girl,' David Fincher's beautifully shot, black and white commercials are less about clothing and more about ... the idea of clothes? Maybe? In true Fincher fashion, these ads feel like they're hiding a secret or two. They're moving paintings of ideas and feelings.
Remember that Jeff Bridges movie 'Seventh Son'? It was supposed to hit theaters this year, and we even got a Comic-Con 2013 panel from the film, but Legendary and Universal pushed it to 2015. Now, a new 'Seventh Son' trailer has been released to pretty much remind us all that it's still happening ... and that it kinda looks like what 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' would've looked like without that R rating.
August. It’s the worst, right? It’s hot. Also, the movies are historically not great. The last few weeks, multiplexes have been filled with movies with titles like ‘Let’s Be Cops,’ ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ and ‘The Expendables 3.’ This weekend brings us ‘The November Man’ and ‘As Above, So Below.’ It’s not pretty.
We've seen our fair share of cosplayers, especially when it comes to Batman, but a man in Japan is taking his costumed shenanigans to a new level. Introducing Chibatman, the vigilante Dark Knight impersonator riding around Chiba, Japan, on his version of the Batpod from Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy.
