Four new images have been released for Scott Cooper’s drama Out of the Furnace.  The film stars Christian Bale as an ex-con steel worker who seeks vengeance when his brother (Casey Affleck) disappears after getting involved with a local crime ring.  The pic seems to be flying under the radar when it comes to awards prognostication.  Perhaps that’s because of early buzz amongst Oscar bloggers (where’s Adam when you need him?!) or because the plot doesn’t reach for something as lofty as other contenders even thought it looks like a compelling character drama.  Perhaps its awards fortunes will change when it premieres at AFI Fest later this month.

A few weeks ago, director David Ayer shared some images from his upcoming tank movie, Fury.  The story takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime is in collapse and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank called “Fury” that battles a desperate German army.  Even though these are just set photos, the composition on some of them is superb and highly encouraging for the visuals of the finished film.  This is clearly Ayer’s biggest feature to date, and it could be really impressive if he blends the scale of a World War II action film with the strong character work of his previous film, End of Watch.

Rush was one of Ron Howard‘s best films in decades, and hopefully this is the beginning of career resurgence when it comes to quality.  His next film, In the Heart of the Sea, certainly has the potential with its incredible true story.  In 1819, the whaling ship Essex was rammed by an angry sperm whale in the South Pacific.  The surviving crew drifted for 90 days in three tiny whaleboats and encountered disease, hunger, and eventually cannibalism.  Howard has released a couple set photos of the production working on the last day of their interior tank work.

Vin Diesel continues to roll out photos from the set of Fast & Furious 7.  After yesterday’s photo featuring Jason Statham, Diesel has now provided an image with Dwayne Johnson, who plays the badass Hobbs.  I’m interested to see where Hobbes goes in the sequel considering his betrayal in Fast & Furious 6.  A friend of mine pointed out that Hobbs never would have done that, but he did and now the character will have to face those consequences.

Vin Diesel has been very open with sharing photos from the set of Fast & Furious 7.  It’s a nice way to connect with fans, and proof that just because a movie is highly anticipated, that doesn’t mean the set has to be locked down like Fort Knox.  Of course, there’s nothing in here that will spoil the movie, but it’s fun to see Diesel and Jason Statham, who plays the film’s heavy, looking over the script. It’s also funny to see a glass of wine between them even though it’s a prop.

Last week, we reported that while filming on Zack Snyder‘s Superman/Batman movie wouldn’t truly get underway until early 2014, they would be using East Los Angeles College’s Weingart Stadium to shoot a scene involving Gotham City University and Metropolis State University.  They shot their scene this past weekend during halftime, and Collider reader Vahn Gharakhani was good enough to send us some photos and video he took.  Gotham is the home team in this game, and my favorite part of the video is when someone in the stands shouts, “Metropolis sucks!” because that person really got into character.

The stinger during the credits of Fast & Furious 6 revealed Jason Statham would play the villain of the next movie.  Naturally, a Fast & Furious villain needs a cool car, although it would be kind of fun if Statham’s character refused to use a vehicle, and the heroes were absolutely stymied by this fact.  But a confident British actor like Statham needs a sweet ride, and he’s got one of the sweetest.  A new set photo from director James Wan reveals that the villain will be cruising around in an Aston Martin.  Will it come with all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from James Bond’s Aston Martins?  I hope so.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wants you to know two things: 1) He’s having a good time on the set of The Expendables 3; 2) He enjoys smoking his stogies between takes.  Schwarzenegger previously sent out a photo of him hanging out with director Patrick Hughes and new co-star Harrison Ford, and today he’s used his Instagram to release another set photo.  This time, he’s being macho with Hughes and Sylvester Stallone.  For those unfamiliar with the plot, Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.

Marvel has released 16 new images from Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World.  The film finds Chris Hemsworth’s Thor squaring off against the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).  Producer Craig Kyle tells Empire that when the film picks up, Asgard has been at war for almost a year because the cost of rebuilding the bifrost, “but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that’s what our guys have been doing now – trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms.”  While I still have my doubts about the movie, I still love the look of Asgard and the characters’ costumes.  I’m also impressed by the makeup work on Malekith unmasked (seen above), and want to see more of him in action.

Sony has released nine new images from The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  A couple images show off more of the Rhino (Paul Giamatti), another provides us a look at Stan Lee, one has Dane DeHaan doing some filming, and so forth.  But the big one is a studio exterior painted with “Sinister 6″.  That’s about the biggest confirmation we’ve received thus far that The Amazing Spider-Man franchise is headed towards the supervillain super-group.

Bryan Singer Stands Next to a Giant Sentinel in New Set Photo from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

On the Trask Industries viral website, the mutant-hunting sentinels in X-Men: Days of Future Past are listed as 18 ft tall, and it turns out that the production actually built one to scale.  Director Bryan Singer tweeted a set photo of him standing next to one, and it’s almost three times his size.  I don’t know how tall Singer is (IMDb lists him as 5′ 10″), but it doesn’t change the machine’s imposing figure.  Although I assume all of the sentinels’ movement will be handled with CGI, it’s still nice to see a practical figure.

First Look at Tim Burton’s BIG EYES Starring Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams

by     Posted 1 year, 104 days ago

big-eyes-set-photo-amy-adams-slice

Production is underway on Tim Burton‘s Big Eyes, and the first set photo has quickly leaked.  The film’s story focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz).  Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work.  Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.  Burton has taken a lot of flack over recent years for work that has become self-parody, and that criticism is well deserved.  But he’s shown his talent in the past, and a script from Ed Wood scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski could provide Burton with a return to some of his better work.  It also helps that, aside from the animated Frankenweenie, this will be Burton’s first movie without Johnny Depp in almost a decade, so that tiresome pairing can be put aside for the time being.  Whether we’ll see any of Burton’s overly familiar set designs on Big Eyes remains to be seen.

Hit the jump to check out the first set photo from the movie.  The film also stars Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, and Terence Stamp.
