Millions of movie fans are going to get to see the great Ben Kingsley ham it up as the villainous Mandarin in 'Iron Man 3' when it opens this Friday, but he has another big performance coming our way in 2013. The Oscar-winning thespian is playing the role of war hero Mazer Rackham in Gavin Hood's upcoming adaptation of 'Ender's Game' and our first look at the character has arrived.
A new 'Iron Man 3' TV spot has arrived and it has us wondering: is there such thing as too much marketing? After all, it feels like at least half of the highly anticipated Marvel adventure has been released through trailers, spots and clips. That's a thought to chew on as you watch this new footage (which, like the others, is quite cool).
One of the big wild cards in 'Iron Man 3' appears to be Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin, a modern update on a politically incorrect comic book villain that most audiences aren't familiar with. The trailers and spots have given us glimpses of the character and let us hear snippets of his oddball voice, but a new clip from the upcoming film gives us our best look at Kingsley's performance yet.
LAIKA, the studio that brought us the Oscar-nominated animated feature 'ParaNorman,' is reuniting with Focus Features for a new animated project called 'The Boxtrolls' and it sounds too cute. Are these guys the new Pixar?
You've got to take everything that comes out of Marvel Studios with a grain of salt. By extension, you need to take everything that comes out of Kevin Feige's mouth with a grain of salt, since he's president of Marvel Studios and it's his duty to get you excited about his company's movies. However, let's indulge him for a moment, okay? Especially since he recently spoke about one of the more talked-about subjects of the week: Ben Kingsley's performance as the villainous Mandarin in 'Iron Man 3.'
The 'Iron Man 3' trailer. It's finally here, after a number of trailer teasers. And you get a good look and listen to Ben Kingsley's Mandarin, a taste of Guy Pearce's role in the film, and the sense that this is a film of scale, and that nothing is going to come easy for Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark.
