Doug Liman is kind of a beast. Before the Edge of Tomorrow director’s next Tom Cruise project, American Made (formerly titled Mena), hits theaters, we’re getting another Liman action flick: The Wall. The first official trailer for one of two new Liman films arriving in 2017 has debuted online, giving us a sneak peak at a fairly simple dramatic thriller concept about two soldiers, a sniper and one very deadly standoff.
Tom Ford’s long-awaited follow-up to A Single Man just premiered at TIFF, and the early reactions from critics have been rather glowing — that’s bittersweet news for fans of Ford, who will have to wait just a little longer to see the fashion designer and director’s latest project, Nocturnal Animals. Thankfully, these intriguingly stylish new character posters will help bide the time (kind of) until we can at least see the first trailer.
It’s been a few months since the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel isn’t done providing us with new materials from the film. The blockbuster sequel is hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a little over a month, but you can check out a clips from one of the bonus features right now — as well as a little Black Panther easter egg you might have missed the first time around.
The cast for Tom Ford’s sophomore feature is shaping up beautifully — the film, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams and is based on the novel Tony and Susan, has added two very interesting new cast members. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Godzilla star Aaron Taylor-Johnson and all-around amazing actor Michael Shannon will co-star with Gyllenhaal in the thrilling new drama.
Since Avengers: Age of Ultron is already well on its way to making $1 billion worldwide, chances are strong that you’ve already seen Marvel’s latest adventure and won’t need a spoiler warning about the apparent death of a main character. Still, just in case, here’s a spoiler warning, because Marvel President Kevin Feige has officially confirmed that the character in question is no longer among the living and won’t be coming back to life.
Since every single person who clicked on this article has probably already seen Avengers: Age of Ultron, we probably shouldn’t have to warn you that we’re going to get into spoilers in about three seconds. Surely you only care about the future of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s super-speedster Quicksilver and what writer/director Joss Whedon has to say on the matter if you already know what goes down with the character. Surely.
The superheroes at the center of Avengers: Age of Ultron resonate so strongly with so many people because they’re so deeply entrenched in popular culture. Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk were around for years before Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo were even born. These aren’t just characters – they’re icons. And while serious comic book nerds know how much Earth’s mightiest heroes have changed with the times, taking a look back at what the likes of Black Widow and Hawkeye and the Vision used to look like is both entertaining and (dare we say it?) educational.
