Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released a new extended look at director Gareth Edwards highly anticipated Godzilla.  While the previous footage has teased a lot of the story and scope of the film, the new footage explains more of Bryan Cranston’s characters backstory and why he’s convinced the government is lying about what’s really happening.  Of course the footage also shows some amazing action set pieces and it continues to raise my anticipation for the film.  I really can’t wait to see the film next month.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released two new TV spots for Godzilla.  I continue to be impressed at how little the studios are showing from the movie.  While other summer blockbusters are rushing to reveal as much as possible, Godzilla is still teasing.  Granted, we’re still six weeks away from the movie’s release, and there’s plenty of time to give away too much, but for the time being, it’s nice to get new footage, but not so much that the film will be slightly less exciting when it arrives.

High-Quality AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Set Photos Offer Better Look at Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Ultron

Earlier today, we posted unofficial video and photos from the Avengers: Age of Ultron shoot in Italy.  What they boast in cool, they lack in clarity.  Now we can update the collection with higher quality photos of the same scene to give you a clearer look at Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, James Spader (or his stunt double) in what we presume is Ultron, plus a bonus shot of director Joss Whedon.  This photo leak could pressure Marvel to release official images soon, especially in the case of Ultron, who likely has some CG in his character design.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, and Mark Ruffalo also star.  Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1, 2015.

New AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Set Videos from Italy Provide First Look at Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Ultron [Updated]

Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently filming out in the open in Italy, and so unofficial videos and images are leaking out.  In addition to providing a look at Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the scene shows people fleeing in terror, which includes explosions and the requisite appearances of “Man with Briefcase” and “Woman Holding Baby”.  There’s also a metal humanoid, who is presumably the villain Ultron (James Spader) since you can see in one of the set photos they’re trying to cover him up with a black cloak in order to hide him until they’re ready for a proper unveiling.  Since these photos have leaked, that attempt isn’t going so well.  I’m also a little surprised there’s a practical Ultron on set since I assumed the entire character would be done entirely with motion capture and CGI.  [Update: Check out higher quality photos here.]

TOP 5: GODZILLA Set Visit, DIVERGENT, Final Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, MUPPETS MOST WANTED Interviews, CHEAP THRILLS

Now available on VOD and in select theaters is Drafthouse Films’ dark thriller/comedy Cheap Thrills starring Pat Healy, Ethan Embry, David Koechner, and Sara Paxton. I watched the film last night and, while not for the faint of heart or stomach, I can’t recommend it enough. At its core, Thrills works from a single question: how far would you go to be able to provide for yourself and/or your family? It uses precision pacing, confident direction from E.L. Katz, and solid performances across the board to explore this question, all while gradually rising to a crescendo that feels both inevitable and wildly inventive. Offhand I can’t think of a film that blends the thrilling and the disgusting, excitement and repulsion, in a more entertaining way than Cheap Thrills. Regardless of whether you want to or not (and I don’t think you will), this is a movie you won’t soon forget.

In addition to talking a bit more about Cheap Thrills with Matt’s review and a couple of interviews, this week’s Top 5 also highlights our set visit coverage for Godzilla, Matt’s review of Divergent plus interviews with Shailene Woodley and more, the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Muppets Most Wanted interviews with Tina Fey among others. Read on for a brief recap and link to everything I mention above.

A young man in a radiation suit surveys the ruins of a dilapidated Japanese house.  Insects crawl along the floors and walls.  Nature has overtaken the abandoned home.  The young man sweeps his flashlight across the dimly lit room, but what he’s trying to find is unknown.  His father is also combing the old house; hoping to find a crucial piece of information that could help them, and in turn, possibly help humanity.  It’s a quiet scene, but the stakes are monstrous.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released four new images from Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming action film, Godzilla.  We still don’t know much about the plot other than it will involve Godzilla, other rampaging monsters, and a talented cast of actors.  Also, the trailers have looked great, so I’m in.  I’m also glad that we’re still not being shown much from the movie.  These new images don’t spoil anything, and I applaud WB and Legendary for their restraint.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks the Tone of the Picture, the Raw Energy During Filming, and More on the Set of GODZILLA

godzilla-aaron-taylor-johnson

The first film I saw starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson was 2010′s Kick-Ass.  He played the scrawny, naïve, and cynical wannabe superhero Dave Lizewski.  The Aaron Taylor-Johnson my fellow journalists and I met on the set of Godzilla was a far cry from that character.  He strides over to us confidently, he’s more built, and the four years he’s aged since his breakthrough role has given him the added maturity that makes it easy to buy him as the hero in a blockbuster action movie.

During our conversation, we talked about the film’s central father-son relationship, training to play a Navy Lieutenant, the indie vibe on set that encourages a raw, intimate energy, his thoughts on the iconic monster, and more.  Hit the jump to check out the interview.  Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th.

A new international trailer for director Gareth Evans’ highly anticipated Godzilla has landed online, and it’s quite excellent.  Plenty of new footage can be gleaned from this trailer, as we see much more of the titular creature’s immense amount of destruction and also get a better look at the film’s human characters.  This pic continues to look fantastic, and I’m incredibly eager to see the full feature on a ginormous IMAX screen in a couple of months.

New images have been released for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla.  Although we recently got a new trailer, plot details remain scarce beyond the eponymous monster running amok and helpless humans trying to figure out how to deal with him.  These new images don’t provide any more details, but I’m glad we’re not at a marketing overload point.  There’s just enough mystery here to keep it interesting without being gratingly coy about the whole affair.

New Full-Length Trailer for GODZILLA Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming monster redo Godzilla.  Starring Aaron Taylor-JohnsonBryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen, the film “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s arrogance, threaten our very existence.”  This full-length trailer delves a bit deeper into the film’s plot without giving too much away, which is all-too-rare nowadays (ahem, The Amazing Spider-Man 2).  Cranston appears to be the film’s voice of reason as his voice narrates this new trailer, and while we do get hints of a twist on the nuclear origins of the titular monster, the main focus is really on conveying the epic scope of the film through a series of sweeping shots.  Some of the unfinished effects look a little spotty, but all-in-all this is another exciting glimpse at what’s poised to be a monster hit at the box office this summer.  I also like how they’re still keeping any full or clear shots of Godzilla himself out of the marketing—at least for now.

With director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming monster redo Godzilla opening May 16th, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have recently started amping up their promotional campaign by releasing a new poster last week.  If you thought that was cool, you’re going to love what they released today: Godzilla’s new roar.  As you can hear after the jump, it starts with almost 10 seconds of monster fury and I cannot wait to see it on the big screen in a few months.  Check it out.

Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen, and the film “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s arrogance, threaten our very existence.”  The film also stars Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn.

Update: WB has also sent over an animated roar.  We’ve embedded that as well.

ET Canada recently ran a piece on visiting the set of Godzilla, and it shows some nice behind-the-scenes footage.  There’s actually a bit that I think might be a bit too revealing, although I can’t say for sure since I haven’t read the script and obviously haven’t seen the finished feature.  I will say that if nothing else, it’s always a joy watching Bryan Cranston be goofy and enthusiastic about his work.

KICK-ASS 2 Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 109 days ago

kick-ass-2-slice

Continuing the story not far from where the original Kick-Ass left off, the sequel Kick-Ass 2 finds its hero (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) teaming up with a group of ordinary citizens looking to rid the street of the criminal element.  Meanwhile, the recently orphaned (at his own hand) arch-villain Red Mist/The Motherfucker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) plots revenge on the self-made superhero.  And Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), in what seems like training ground for her role in Carrie, gets to experience some good old-fashioned high school teen angst.

There’s a fine line to tread when it comes to making an action comedy.  When it’s successful, the result is Ghostbusters or Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.  When it’s not, the result is Kick Ass 2.  Hit the jump for my review of the film on Blu-ray.

TOP 5: THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG, First Trailer for GODZILLA, POMPEII Set Visit, TERMINATOR Reboot News, JUPITER ASCENDING Trailer

What began as a way to keep my mind off of my upcoming fantasy football playoff matchup has blossomed into a full-on love affair. Over the past week I’ve watched a considerable amount of Parks and Recreation via Netflix and I couldn’t be happier with my time killer of choice. I’ve made it through the first three seasons, all of which have delivered consistent laughs and excellent character moments (Ron’s inability to resist his ex-wife and Leslie’s attempt to stay awake during Pawnee Cares’ diabetes telethon come to mind). I’ll admit that my television viewing is often marred by my own skepticism. When Parks debuted, I watched the first few episodes and wrote it off as cutting and pasting The Office‘s format into a small town, local government setting. These last few days I’ve realized that’s almost exactly what Parks is and yet I couldn’t care less because it’s smart, funny, and endearing at nearly every turn.

My new found love of Parks and Recreation now officially on the record, this week’s Top 5 includes The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug interviews and review, the first trailer for director Gareth EdwardsGodzilla, a recap of Steve’s visit to the set of Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Pompeii, several bits of news out of the Terminator reboot camp, and the first trailer for The Wachowski Siblings‘ latest Jupiter Ascending. What comes next is a brief recap and link to each of the above.
