Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowpiercer' is opening (at least internationally) right before Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium,' and it's interesting that two world-class filmmakers are using science-fiction to address the inequalities in the world. The "Occupy Wall Street" movement obviously sparked a lot of imaginations.
In the comic book world, superheroes modify their costumes on a pretty regular basis, so it's not surprising that Chris Evans' cinematic Captain America has already gone through three costumes. In 'Captain America: The First Avenger,' his suit was tough and WWII era-appropriate. In 'The Avengers,' he upgraded to a more streamlined and stylish look. But what about his new uniform for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'? Well, a newly leaked piece of concept art gives us our best look yet at the redesigned outfit.
Our first peek at Sebastian Stan as "The Winter Soldier," the main villain in next year's 'Captain America 2,' came about two weeks ago when the first set photos, featuring the actor in character, arrived. Now an even better look at the new-and-improved Bucky Barnes has shown up, providing a glimpse at the Soldier's most defining characteristic: his robotic arm!
'Captain America 2,' dubbed 'The Winter Soldier,' already gave us our first look at Chris Evans back to his Cap duties, but we want more than just a look at his backside! Thankfully, we found some snapshots from the set showing an actual fight scene between our title hero, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and...
For a second, some people thought this is what Tilda Swinton's character in the sci-fi flick 'Snowpiercer' looked like, but as official images started making the rounds, we all realized that her look is much more drastic. Now that new character posters have been revealed, we get an up-close look at another one of her more interesting movie transformations.
'Captain America 2' has begun filming and you won't have to wait until 2013 Comic-Con to get your first look at Cap back in action. We've got your first 'Captain America 2' photo below! And what's better? How about confirmation that Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson will be co-starring in 'The Winter Soldier?' Yup, we've got that too!
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.
