For a film we know next to nothing about, 'Snowpiercer' certainly sounds cool. In fact, it sounds like on the most promising films of 2013 and it's legitimately frustrating how little we know about the movie itself and the plans for its release. Some new promotional images (cleverly displayed as passports) have arrived and while they don't fill in too many blanks, they give us a picture of what may be the best ensemble of the year.
Michael Shannon has played more than a few nefarious types in his career, but none of them come close to Richard Kuklinski, aka "The Iceman." A vicious hitman with at least 100 corpses to his credit, he's all the more horrifying because Kuklinski was actually a real person. And 'The Iceman' is his story.
Check out the new trailer for the crime thriller after the break.
Back when Marvel revealed the official details of 'The Avengers' DVD and Blu-ray release, we knew tons of deleted scenes would be in store. We then got a taste of it when one piece of footage featuring Mark Ruffalo hit the Web, and we got a bit more time to peer into the Hulk's story line.
Now another 'Avengers' deleted scene, this time featuring Captain America, from the DVD and Blu-ray special features section has hit. So, what new scene did we miss out on in the theatrical version?
This is what happens any time you play a superhero in a major comic book franchise: No matter the movie that you are trying to promote, you’ll have to answer a handful of questions about the superhero blockbuster that you eventually are going to film (even though cameras don’t roll for months, at the earliest).
Take Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in Marvel’s string of popcorn thrillers. He’s trying to talk to the media about ‘The Iceman,’ a serial-killer-hitman drama that he and Michael Shannon brought to the Toronto International Film Festival. But instead, he has to spend time talking to outlets about his Marvel future. And Evans talks. To his credit, he knows where his bread is being buttered these days. Movies like ‘The Avengers’ and the upcoming 'Captain America 2' allow him to do as many ‘Iceman’ movies as he’ll want for the foreseeable future.
While the Toronto International Film Festival is still underway, everyone is anxious to see the first showing of films like 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Argo,' and get as much information on the stars' future projects. Though the actors and actresses only attended the festival to see the premieres and promote their current works, everyone wanted to grill them on their much-talked-about, upcoming films.
For Chris Evans, that meant getting as many details about 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Solider') from him as possible. Thankfully, this time around, 'The Avengers' star gave us some actual information we can work with.
One of the best working actors these days is Michael Shannon (recently of 'Premium Rush'), because he always gives a committed performance, even if he's mostly asked to act a little off. He should be perfect for 'The Iceman,' the story of a real life assassin who was also a devoted father and husband.
'Happy Endings,' which wrapped its second season last month, features cast members that are not only funny, they're apparently brave as well. In fact, three of the show's stars are so fearless -- or stupid -- that they once almost got into a scrap with Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in 'The Avengers.'
Right on the heels of the release date announcement for 'Captain America 2', there's a new TV spot for 'The Avengers' which highlights the role of Chris Evans's Steve Rogers - aka Captain America - in the film. They are selling him as the leader, which fits with what Joss Whedon was saying about the film a couple months back.
