If I know our readers, you want to see as much of you can of Iron Man 3. You are in luck: Marvel has released six minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the superhero sequel. It is nice to see Robert Downey Jr. play with all the different suits (although there is a notable amount of plainclothes action) and do some of his own stunts. But for me the big revelation is that Tony Stark appears to spend a good deal of bonding time with a young kid (Ty Simpkins).
Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, and Ben Kingsley co-star. Directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Iron Man 3 opens May 3. Watch the B-roll after the break.
With Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey set to open worldwide later this month, Warner Bros. has just opened the floodgates of Hobbit footage by releasing six clips and now they’ve provided us with twenty minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film. If you’re curious what it was like on set, the footage is loaded with some awesome stuff including Peter Jackson directing Andy Serkis as Gollum with Martin Freeman, all the dwarves with Bilbo in Bag End, Elijah Wood and Ian Holm in Bag End, Jackson directing Ian McKellen as Gandalf as well as Jackson directing Christopher Lee! Trust me, if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, you’re going to love this footage.
Obviously, if you’re trying to stay spoiler free, I advise you skipping this footage until you’ve seen The Hobbit. Hit the jump to watch and here’s Dave’s review (he thought it was great).
Director Len Wiseman’s remake of Total Recall hits theaters next weekend, and Sony has released five clips and 15 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the film in anticipation of the release. Colin Farrell takes over the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and judging by these clips and previous trailers, Wiseman’s got a whole lotta sci-fi action in store for moviegoers. So much so that the director recently revealed to Steve that he put together a director’s cut for the Blu-ray that includes 17 minutes of extra footage.
Hit the jump to check out the clips and behind-the-scenes footage, and be sure to check out Steve’s Comic-Con interviews with stars Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston. The film also stars Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, and John Cho. Total Recall opens on August 3rd.
With Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus now playing in Europe and opening next week in North America, 20th Century Fox has provided us with four clips and almost five minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film. If you’ve made it this far without watching the newest trailers and TV spots, I strongly suggest not watching these videos until you’ve seen the film. However, for those that like to see as much footage as you can, you’re going to absolutely love the behind-the-scenes footage of the cast on set and getting to see Scott direct the action.
Prometheus stars Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Guy Pearce, Rafe Spall, and Sean Harris. Hit the jump to watch the clips.
We’ve been provided with four clips and some behind-the-scenes footage from Tarsem Singh’s Snow White film Mirror Mirror. The tone is still incredibly light, but it’s a bit less “farce” than what we saw in the trailers. The best way I can describe Mirror Mirror (based on these clips) is that it’s like a classic Disney animated film has been magically transformed into live-action; the actors and environments are real, but it retains all the dialogue, costumes, and action/movements from its previously animated iteration. I would imagine the film wouldn’t appear near as ridiculous if everything was animated, but when you have actors wearing goofy hats and spouting corny line after corny line, it all seems bizarre. That said, I do think Mirror Mirror comes off quite a bit better in these clips than it did in that atrocious first trailer.
Hit the jump to check out the clips for yourself, along with some behind-the-scenes footage. The film stars Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, and Nathan Lane. Mirror Mirror opens on March 30th.
With director Gary Ross‘ The Hunger Games opening March 23, Lionsgate has just released the EPK (electronic press kit) and it includes two clips and over six minutes of behind-the-scenes footage. While you’ve probably already seen the clips, the on set footage is definitely new and it includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson and a lot more of the cast either rehearsing or filming their scenes. If you wish you could have been on set watching Suzanne Collins’ characters come to life, this is the next best thing. Hit the jump to watch. You can also click here for over thirty images from the film. [Update: We've added an excellent, just-released clip featuring Peeta's (Josh Hutcherson) crucial interview with Caesar Flickman (Stanley Tucci)].
With director Bill Condon’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 hitting theaters November 18, Summit Entertainment has sent over 10 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage (B-Roll) from when they were making the movie. If you wish you could have been on the set to watch Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast goof around in between shots, you’ll enjoy the footage. In addition to the cast looking at monitors and having fun, you can watch Condon direct the actors and see behind-the-scenes footage from the wedding and the honeymoon. Hit the jump to watch and look for new interviews with the cast tomorrow.
Last week, Summit released some behind-the-scenes footage from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. It was a little over two minutes and it showed Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and director Bill Condon working through a number of scenes when the production was still filming. If you enjoyed the footage from last week you’ll want to hit the jump, as we’ve been provided with another two or so minutes of additional behind-the-scenes footage. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens on November 18.
Thanks to Warner Bros. sending over the EPK (electronic press kit) from Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern, you can watch 15 minutes of behind the scenes footage. If you’re trying to stay spoiler free, I urge you not to watch the footage as it’s loaded with potential spoilers. However, if you’re curious how Green Lantern was made, the footage is awesome. I especially enjoyed getting to see Geoffrey Rush and Michael Clarke Duncan do their voice over work as Tomar-Re and Kilowog (which is towards the end) and watching Mark Strong become Sinestro in the makeup chair. You can also see Ryan Reynolds pretending to fly, tons of stunt work, and plenty of Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard. Again, it’s some great footage. Hit the jump to check it out. Green Lantern open June 17th.
With director Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class set to open next week, 20th Century Fox has sent over three clips and twenty five minutes of behind the scenes footage! For those that want to stay spoiler free, I advise you not to watch the behind the scenes footage until you’ve seen the movie as it’s loaded with could be considered spoilers. However, if you’re curious how a movie is made, or what it was like on the set, the footage is great.
As I said a few days ago after I saw the movie, X-Men: First Class is a huge home-run. Everything from the great script to the awesome performances by the entire cast (with special mention to James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) makes this X-Men film my favorite in the franchise. Also, the film is loaded with incredible action and a ton of Easter Eggs for the fans. Even the sets and costumes are great. Trust me, as soon as the movie is over, you’re going to wish the next chapter was coming out next week. Hit the jump to check out the footage.
With Thor finally arriving in America next weekend (it’s already playing around the world), Paramount/Marvel have released the EPK and included are four clips and ten minutes of behind the scenes footage. While the clips have all been previously released, this is the first time we have all four in one place. In addition, if you’re curious what it’s really like on a movie set, the behind the scenes footage is great to watch. However, if you are trying to avoid spoilers, you might want to check it out after you’ve seen the movie.
As I said when I posted my review/video blog on Thor, I thought the movie was great. Also, while Thor is not an easy transition from comic books to movie screens, director Kenneth Branagh made it work and I cannot wait to see everyone together in The Avengers next summer. Hit the jump to watch the clips and look for new interviews next week. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg and Colm Feore.
With director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s The Tourist getting released next week, Sony has released 5 movie clips and 4 minutes of behind the scenes footage. So if you’re curious about the first on screen pairing of Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, these clips should make you very happy. While the trailers haven’t done much to excite me, I’m still checking this film out opening weekend because like you…I want to see Depp and Jolie on screen together. Here’s the official synopsis:
Johnny Depp stars as an American tourist whose playful dalliance with a stranger leads to a web of intrigue, romance and danger in The Tourist. During an impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank (Depp) unexpectedly finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise (Angelina Jolie), an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves unwittingly thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Entertainment Tonight is apparently dedicating a chunk of air time to Michael Bay’s latest opus Transformers: Dark of the Moon and they’ve released a short teaser video that shows off some behind-the-scenes footage. Unsurprisingly, there’s a lot of exploding things, a lot of people (including Josh Duhamel and Shia LaBeouf) standing around staring at things exploding, some people (or possibly robots) parachuting into the middle of Chicago, and Patrick Dempsey is there too. There’s little sign of the giant CG robots, but there is a brief glimpse of a what appears to be a NASCAR-style stock car tearing ass down the middle of a debris-ridden Chicago street. It’s probably a safe bet that the car is probably going to turn into a robot at some point.
Hit the jump to see the video and to read the synopsis for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The film is set to open in 3D on July 1, 2011.
With writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D getting released on September 10, Screen Gems has released the full press kit and included are four movie clips, a new featurette, and about nine minutes of B-Roll (Behind the Scenes Footage) from the set.
As you might imagine, the featurette cuts between footage from the movie and the actors talking about their roles and the film. The B-Roll is great for fans of the franchise as you can see what it was like on set and how they made the 3D movie. Finally, the clips give you a taste of the finished film.
