Marvel has released a new featurette for director Shane Black’s sequel Iron Man 3, and this one focuses on the film’s large cast of characters.  In addition to a fair amount of new footage, we get to see nearly the entire cast (including Jon Favreau) discuss their characters and how the film stacks up against the first two Iron Man pics.  Naturally everyone has great things to say about the film, but Ben Kingsley appears genuinely enthused about tackling The Mandarin and Robert Downey Jr. claims that it’s the most emotionally satisfying and entertaining Iron Man film yet.

Clint Eastwood to Next Direct Musical Adaptation JERSEY BOYS?

It appears that Clint Eastwood has caught the musical bug.  Though the filmmaker has been trying to get his remake of A Star Is Born off the ground for the past couple of years, he’s run into quite a few stumbling blocks along the way.  First production was pushed back when star Beyonce became pregnant, then the multi-talented artist dropped out of the project altogether.  Esperanza Spalding is the latest choice for the female lead, but Eastwood keeps striking out when it comes to filling the male role.  Tom Cruise was courted to star last year, and the project has already seen Leonardo DiCaprio and Sean Penn pass on the gig.

Now it appears that Eastwood has set his sights on another musical film to direct as his next project instead of A Star Is Born, opting to push that long-in-development project back in lieu of the prospect of taking over for Jon Favreau on the Broadway adaptation Jersey Boys.  Hit the jump for more.

As the NBC comedy The Office winds down its final season, some big name talent is coming onboard to helm one of the last episodes.  TV Line reports that Jon Favreau will helm an episode of the series later this season, though scheduling is still being worked out so it’s unknown exactly which installment he’ll direct.  Throughout the show’s past nine seasons a number of famous directors have stepped in to helm episodes (Joss Whedon, J.J. Abrams, Harold Ramis, Marc Webb, Seth Gordon, Jason ReitmanPaul Feig, Bryan Cranston), so Favreau’s involvement isn’t entirely out of the ordinary.  The Iron Man director has previous experience in the TV world, as he directed the final episode of Judd Apatow’s series Undeclared and the pilot for NBC’s Revolution.

TV Line also has news concerning the now-defunct Dwight spinoff The Farm.  The episode that was to serve as a backdoor pilot for the new series will still air as a part of the current final ninth season, but showrunner Greg Daniels revealed that they won’t be airing “exactly what it was.”  Additional material will be shot in order to make the episode fit into this current season more.

This morning, we have some new comments from stars Robert Downey Jr. and James Badge Dale about Iron Man 3.  Dale, who was last seen in Flight, plays the villain Eric Savin a.k.a. “Coldblood.”  Speaking to Glow [via Just Jared], Dale talked a bit about the tone for the upcoming superhero sequel.  “[Iron Man 3] is really a dark comedy with a little bit of farce,” said Dale. “The trick is to be able to have the audience relate to you. Director Shane Black gave me a long leash.”  We’ve definitely seen the darkness from the recent trailer, but looking at Black’s previous films, I’m sure the comedy will be present as well.

Hit the jump for what Downey had to say about reuniting with Black and more.  Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3, 2013.

And the director speculation for Star Wars: Episode VII marches on.  If you thought actor Jason Fleymng’s recent bean-spilling statement regarding Matthew Vaughn as the director of the new Star Wars film would put an end to the rumors and murmurs, think again.  We’ve seen a number of names pop up as being in contention for the task of helming the upcoming untitled Return of the Jedi sequel, and it seems like we’ve seen just as many filmmakers come out and publicly turn the job down.  One such name that has previously spoken publicly about the new trilogy is Jon Favreau, and it appears that he and David Fincher are the latest filmmakers to be added to the growing “contender” list.  Hit the jump for more.

Warner Bros. is second-guessing its musical adaptation of Jersey Boys.  The Jon Favreau-helmed project had been on track at the studio for a January production start date and Christmas 2013 release, but Variety now reports that WB has put the project into turnaround.  The film is based on the smash hit musical and tells the story of The Four Seasons, chronicling the group’s rise in the 1960s with such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man.” It’s a whole lot of fun, and having seen the show I’d liken it to a musical version of a lighter Goodfellas.

China is already a huge market for American-made films, but looks to increase its purchasing power by expanding the number of American-Chinese co-productions in the coming year.  Chief among them is the Marvel movie Iron Man 3, which is currently filming.  However, a snafu occurred recently when questions were raised as to what exactly comprised a “co-production.”  The two sides hashed it out at a joint film summit held at UCLA on Monday and things look prosperous for the future.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Sir Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Jon Favreau, Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 is slated to open May 3rd, 2013.  Hit the jump for more on the American-Chinese co-production of Iron Man 3.

The first trailer for Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 dropped earlier today, and it’s pretty great.  The big take away is that this looks to be a surprisingly dark entry into the series, especially for the wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).  But there are also some cool details in the trailer you may have missed.   What’s with the tattoo on the back of the Mandarin’s neck?  What happened to poor Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)?  Who is Iron Patriot beating up on?  There are also plenty of cool images that prove Black, even though he only directed one movie before this one (albeit an excellent one), knows how to shoot action.

The first trailer for director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 has been released and it’s looking a lot darker for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) this time around. Following the events of The AvengersStark is a bit more shaken up than one would have expected.  His nightmares plague him with sleepless nights and constant fear that harm will befall the people he cares about.  And it’s looking like his greatest technological achievement will become his biggest threat.  At least until the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) makes his appearance in grand fashion (though I’m not 100% sold on his accent).

Full Synopsis for IRON MAN 3 Teases Revenge and Answered Questions

iron-man-3-logo-title-slice

We were recently treated to an official synopsis for Marvel’s upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World that shed a light on the story of the godly follow-up, and now the studio has released a full synopsis for Iron Man 3.  Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously noted that the third entry in the Iron Man franchise would metaphorically get Tony Stark “back to the cave,” in a place where he’s stripped of everything and left with only his intelligence to fight his way back.  This synopsis teases just that, as Stark finds himself on a sort of revenge mission after his “personal world is destroyed” by his enemy (Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin).  The synopsis also promises an answer to a question that’s central to Stark’s character: does the suit make the man or does the man make the suit?

Hit the jump to read the full synopsis.  Directed by Shane Black, the film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, and Guy PearceIron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd, 2013.

First Trailer and Images for IDENTITY THIEF Starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy

by     Posted 1 year, 204 days ago

idnetity-thief-jason-bateman-melissa-mccarthy-slice

The first trailer for the comedy Identity Thief has been released.  Directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), the movie stars Jason Bateman as an accounts rep who has a week to travel across the country and track down the con artist (Melissa McCarthy) who stole his identity.  Horrible Bosses was a fantastic surprise last year and the pairing of Bateman and McCarthy sounds great, but this trailer is a tad disappointing.  Many of the jokes hinge on physical comedy, so hopefully they’re saving the dialogue-driven stuff for the full film. The caliber of talent involved is promising and McCarthy looks to have put together quite the character, so I’m still eager to see more.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out some images.  The film also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Genesis Rodriguez, Morris Chestnut, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric StonestreetIdentity Thief opens February 8, 2013. 

Creator Eric Kripke Talks REVOLUTION, How It’s Different from SUPERNATURAL, and Ideas for Future Seasons

eric kripke revolution

The NBC drama series Revolution, premiering on September 17th, tells the story of a family that struggles to reunite in an American landscape where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones and even lights — has mysteriously blacked out forever.  The show is centered around one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), whose brother is kidnapped by militia leaders, forcing her to reconnect with her estranged uncle (Billy Burke), in order to rescue Danny (Graham Rogers), overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America, all while they explore the enduring mystery of why the power failed and if it will ever return.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, show creator/writer/executive producer Eric Kripke (Supernatural) talked about how the idea for the show started, how both J.J. Abrams (as executive producer) and Jon Favreau (as the pilot’s director) got involved, wanting to tell a character-driven adventure tale, how Revolution will have a slightly different and less snarky tone than Supernatural, his decision to immediately address the fact that the lack of electricity is not quite what it initially seems, the challenges of going from doing a show with two main characters to doing a show with a large ensemble cast, and how he already has a really solid idea about what Season 2 is, as well as possible notions for Season 3.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.
