Some new set photos from Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot have popped up. As expected in a giant rampaging monster movie, the images show scenes of wanton destruction of a small Japanese fishing village and what appears to be schoolchildren fleeing from said monster. Unfortunately, our only look at the title monster is a giant blue screen that towers over the set. Be sure to check out previous galleries of set photos here, here and here.
Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Crantson, Ken Watanabe, and Richard T. Jones and opens in 3D on May 16, 2014. See the images after the jump.
While we just recently saw a new trailer and a batch of new images from director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has now unveiled a large group of high-resolution images. We’ve seen a few of these before in lower-resolution iterations, but we also get new, clear looks at Supes’ parents (both birth and adopted), as well as a great photo of Christopher Meloni’s character.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fisburne, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.
May 22nd marks the 79th anniversary of the death of notorious outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow [Correction: It's actually today, May 23rd], and as such, History is releasing a few photos from their upcoming miniseries, Bonnie & Clyde, which will be simulcast on History, Lifetime and A&E later this year. The miniseries has been in production for years, with an incredible amount of starts and stops. History finally settled on a winning combination of Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and ethereal beauty Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) to play the infamous couple, who were iconically portrayed in the 1967 film by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beaty. Hit the jump for the images and more.
In case you missed this dread-filled trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, we’ve gathered up 20 new images for your viewing pleasure. The final trailer certainly gets a dark and foreboding tone across, but some of the scenes move a hair too fast for the less-than-superhuman eye to take in. Scenes like Superman (Henry Cavill) being buried by a mountain of skulls, Lois Lane (Amy Adams) being outfitted with some sort of spacemask and not one but two instances of heat vision!
The film also stars Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fisburne, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th. Hit the jump to check out the images.
Fox Searchlight has released a batch of new high-resolution images from director Zal Batmanglij’s (Sound of My Voice) eco-terrorist thriller The East. Brit Marling co-wrote the script with Batmanglij and stars as an undercover operative for an elite private intelligence firm who infiltrates a domestic terrorist organization in order to protect her corporate clientele. Once she starts living as part of the anarchist collective, though, she finds that her loyalties aren’t as solid as she believed them to be. I caught the film at Sundance and it’s a very solid thriller that poses some fascinating questions that don’t exactly have easy answers. It has a lot to say about the world we live in, but the film still manages to work very effectively as commercial entertainment, as evidenced by the most recent trailer.
Hit the jump to check out the images, click here to read Matt’s review, and click here to read my interview with Batmanglij and Marling. The film also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson, Julia Ormond, Shiloh Fernandez, and Jason Ritter. The East opens on May 31st.
Megan Fox is probably going to shoot down your tried-and-true pick-up lines on the best of days, even if you’re not wearing a geometrically-patterned turtle shell with oven mitts on your hands and deedlybops on your head. So imagine how difficult it must be for Raphael (Alan Ritchson) to convince April O’Neil (Megan Fox) to give him back his signature sais. This new batch of set images from Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shows just that scene unfolding. I’m assuming the red bandana around Ritchson’s arm is to distinguish him as Raph and that he’s not robbing O’Neil as some sort of gang initiation rewrite.
Hit the jump to view the new images. The film also stars Danny Woodburn, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, and Noel Fisher. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens on June 6, 2014.
Sony Pictures has released a batch of new images from writers/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s apocalypse comedy This Is the End. The film finds Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson all playing versions of themselves as they hole up in Franco’s house when a world-ending event occurs. The trailers, featurettes, and recent clip with Emma Watson all make the comedy look like a lot of fun, and I’m eager to see how Rogen and Goldberg fare in their directorial debut.
Hit the jump to check out the high-resolution images. The film also stars Jason Segel, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, and Rihanna. This Is the End opens on June 14, 2013.
Today, we’ve already seen set photos from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past, and now we’ve got some more from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The upcoming sequel sees Captain America (Chris Evans) teaming up with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to track down the nefarious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Filming is underway in Cleveland, which is standing in for Washington, D.C. and the scene has S.W.A.T. and police involved in a shootout of some kind. The photos also show us Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) wandering around, but these images don’t hint at how the character is involved in the scene.
Hit the jump to check out the photos as well as video from the set. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, and Robert Redford. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 2, 2014.
Bryan Singer is at it again. The X-Men: Days of Future Past director has revealed yet another behind-the-scenes peek at a character from the upcoming sequel, this time giving us a look at Jennifer Lawrence in her full body makeup as Mystique. The filmmaker describes the character as “vengeful” in the tweet, suggesting that the complicated relationship between Lawrence’s Mystique and James McAvoy’s Professor X from First Class will continue in this follow-up. We just recently shared what Ellen Page had to say about returning for DOFP and having her picture Tweeted by Singer, so if you missed that story click here to catch up.
Hit the jump to take a look at Lawrence in costume (or, um, body paint). If you missed them check out Singer’s images of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Halle Berry as Storm, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, James McAvoy as Professor X, Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde, and Shawn Ashmore as Iceman. The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellan, Anna Paquin, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, and Peter Dinklage. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
I adore Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City is a pretty good follow-up, but those were both developed by Rocksteady. The franchise has now moved into the hands of WB Games Montreal, so there’s some uncertainty. Furthermore, longtime Batman voice Kevin Conroy was replaced Roger Craig Smith with Troy Baker voicing The Joker instead of Mark Hamill. Last week, we saw Batman fighting Deathstroke in a non-gameplay trailer for the prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins. The game takes place in an even larger open world Gotham in which eight of the world’s deadliest assassins gather on Christmas Eve under direct orders from Black Mask to kill Batman. A full trailer has now been released, and while it still doesn’t show any gameplay, it does show off a neat fight scene in addition to Batman villains Black Mask and presumably Deadshot. WB Games has also announced that those who pre-order will be able to play as Deathstroke. According to WB Games, “Deathstroke will come complete with his own unique weapons and special moves, and will be playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that will be included with the pack. The pack will also contain two alternate Deathstroke character skins.”
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and images. Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, WiiU, and PC on October 25th. Click here to go pre-order.
Another day, another collection of new photos from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. One of the photos is from director Marc Webb‘s Twitter feed, and shows a futuristic room the director has labeled as “the future”. In the future, people just leave their clothes and gun strewn about. At least there’s the digital lock by the door, and hopefully the security has been upgraded from the first film where anyone was welcome as long as they could solve a puzzle (a.k.a. “Bridge Troll Security”).
There’s also some leaked photos from the set, and as you’ll see Spider-Man has a very important call to take. If this is his cell phone, your guess is as good as mine as to where he keeps it on his skin-tight costume. Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2, 2014.
With J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, now open stateside, new information on John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) has leaked in the form of a redacted Starfleet Memorandum. For those who have seen the movie already, feel free to read along as there are probably spoilers present. You should also check out Matt’s review of the film here. And if spoilers don’t bother you, then you might also enjoy these new behind-the-scenes character featurettes that highlight Bones (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho) and Scotty (Simon Pegg).
Also starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve and Anton Yelchin, Star Trek Into Darkness is now playing in theaters. Hit the jump to check out the John Harrison documents and character featurettes.
A new promo image for director Lars von Trier’s very curious new film Nymphomaniac has been released. The drama picked up considerable attention last year when we learned that the film’s actors will be performing unsimulated sex acts in the pic, which stars Charlotte Gainsbourgh as a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story to Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard), an old, charming bachelor who finds Gainsbourhough’s character beaten up in an alley. This promo image highlights the film’s cast—which includes Willem Dafoe, Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, and Christian Slater—as they’re shown in various suggestive positions.
Von Trier is currently editing Part Two of the film, but Nymphomaniac is slated to debut on December 25th in Denmark, with a rollout in other territories (including the U.S.) to follow via Magnolia Pictures. Hit the jump to check out the image.
The first red-band trailer for horror anthology V/H/S/2 is now available along with a couple of new images. There’s plenty of blood, boobs and scares to warrant the red-band tag on this particular trailer. We get glimpses of group suicides, exploding bodies, monstrous creatures and lots and lots of aliens. Looks like a worthy successor to the original and it’s only a few weeks away!
Directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Edúardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto, Gareth Huw Evans and Jason Eisener, V/H/S/2 will be on iTunes/On Demand June 6, 2013 and in theaters July 12, 2013. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out some new stills from the film.
