When you don’t watch a show, how much fun can you expect to have at its New York Comic-Con panel?  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., however, was a blast to attend.  Just like last year, Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, was on hand to introduce the early screening of Tuesday, October 14th’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, but this time around, he let Clark Gregg do it with him and when he came out, the crowd went nuts for him.

Not only did we get to experience a hefty dose of Coulson craziness and see next week’s episode, but Loeb and Gregg also unveiled some footage from Marvels brand new series Agent Carter as well.  Hit the jump for more on that in my Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Comic-Con panel recap.

Two New TV Spots for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Remind Us It’s a “Make or Break Moment”

I heard that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improved once the show was transformed by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and I hope that the new season is good enough to bring back those who abandoned the show earlier in season one (myself included).  As Coulson points out in one of two new TV spots, “This is a make or break moment.”  Perhaps working “in the shadows” is a better approach for the series and now that expectations have been lowered, it can bounce back.  And if not, there’s still Agent Carter to look forward to.

Hit the jump to check out the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV spots.  Season two premieres Tuesday, September 23rd at 9pm, and stars Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge.

First Clip from Ryan Gosling’s LOST RIVER Featuring Matt Smith

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut will make its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival shortly, but today the first Lost River clip has landed online to give the rest of us an idea of what to expect from the ambitious feature.  The answer, apparently, is something weird and slightly hypnotic.  The film, previously titled How to Catch a Monster, weaves elements of fantasy noir and suspense, and centers on a single mother of two and her teenage son who stumble upon a road leading to an underwater town.  This debut clip doesn’t have any dialogue but features a scene that involves Matt Smith (Doctor Who) and Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Gosling wasn’t lying when he said his style was a mix between Nicolas Winding Refn and Derek Cianfrance.

Hit the jump to check out the Lost River clip for yourself.  The film also stars Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, and Saoirse Ronan.

Earlier today, we heard that Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut would be premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.  Previously titled How to Catch a Monster, we now have the first image from the re-titled film, Lost River.  The new name for the film apparently derives from its setting, a once idyllic town that’s now descending into a place of despair and dragging the families that live there down with it.  In addition to the first creepy look at the film, we’ve got some new info on the plot from star Iain De Caestecker, who you might know from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Lost River also stars Saoirse Ronan, Christina HendricksBen MendohlsonMatt Smith, Barbara Steele.  Hit the jump to check out the first Lost River image, and for more on the picture.

New Domestic Trailer for Horror Film IN FEAR Starring Alice Englert and Iain De Caestecker

A new domestic trailer for the upcoming horror film In Fear has been released online.  Directed by Jeremy Lovering (Sherlock), the pic is essentially a home invasion movie that takes place within the confines of a single car.  Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Iain De Caestecker (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) star as a couple who encounter some very unfortunate situations when they get lost in the British highways on their journey to a country getaway and music festival.  Lovering most recently directed the season three premiere of Sherlock so he definitely has chops, and this trailer promises a rather chilling twist on a familiar genre.  The pic received a positive response when it opened in the U.K. last year, so hopes are high for its domestic unveiling.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  In Fear opens in limited release on March 7th, followed by a Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD release on March 11th.

New Promos for Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Networks are preparing to unleash their fall shows, and ABC has one of the most-anticipated with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The network has released two new, vastly different promos.  The first is Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) briefly and dryly describing the other main characters.  You can almost hear Gregg groaning at the terrible copy.  The other promo is a standard TV spot that does a much better job of quickly explaining the premise and showing off a bit of the action.  It’s the one that makes September feel much further away.

Hit the jump to check out the promos.  The series also stars Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth HenstridgeAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres on Tuesday, September 24th at 8pm (EST).

New Poster for Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.; Joss Whedon Provides More Details about the Series

The fall TV season will fast be upon us, and superhero geeks will likely be turning their attention to ABC’s new series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The expectations will be high, but I also assume there will be more patience with the show as it has to go through the standard motions of introducing the characters, the world, and trying to draw in an audience beyond genre fans.  This is network television, and being niche isn’t good enough.  That means an emphasis on case-of-the-week storytelling with little bits of character arcs and perhaps a larger story sprinkled throughout.

Hit the jump for what executive producer and pilot director Joss Whedon had to say about the show at the recent Television Critics Association press tour, and also see a poster featuring the eponymous Agents standing in front of a giant door.  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, September 24th at 8pm on ABC.

A couple weeks ago, Marvel showed off their pilot for the highly-anticipated new series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Today, they’ve released plenty of new images, and some that could be considered slight spoilers for fans who would enjoy a pleasant surprise when they see the pilot.  But for the most part, these are images of lead actors Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge.

With Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set to have its big Comic-Con panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday, ABC has released a new featurette focusing on Agents Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge).  Henstridge describes the pair as having “a brother-sister relationship” with Simmons handling the bio-chem while Fitz focuses on the gadgetry.  It looks like the writers took a “Q”-like character, split it in two, and created what looks like a really fun dynamic.

Earlier this week, we got our first look at the highly-anticipated new series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The new series takes place after The Avengers, and has Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) leading a new team of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives against supernatural forces.  Today, seven more seconds of precious footage have been released, and Coulson announces “Welcome to Level 7″.  Some may wonder, “What is Level 7″?  I wonder if these incredibly brief snippets of footage will be a consistent thing throughout the summer.  If so, that’s incredibly obnoxious.  The people who would watch seven seconds of footage are already going to see the show.  Provide real trailers or keep the show under wraps (I suspect the next major look at the show will come during Comic-Con).

Hit the jump to watch seven seconds of footage because you’re already going to see the show.  The series also stars also stars Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Chloe BennetAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesdays this fall on ABC.

Now that ABC has officially picked up Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’re starting to learn a lot more about the series.  A few days ago we got the first synopsis, then the first image, and now ABC has released a very short teaser trailer for the show.  With Joss Whedon having directed the pilot, and Marvel movies being extremely popular around the world, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was an easy bet for ABC.  However, pilots are always a risk, so I’m beyond excited the show got picked up and in a few months we’ll be able to see a weekly Marvel show and it’s going to feature the return of Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.  Hit the jump to watch the footage.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also stars Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge and Chloe Bennet and it’ll premiere this fall.  [UPDATE: Click here to watch the full trailer.]

New Trailer for Horror Thriller IN FEAR Starring Alice Englert

by     Posted 1 year, 181 days ago

A new trailer for director Jeremy Lovering’s (Sherlock) horror-thriller In Fear has been released online.  The pic is described as a home invasion film that takes place within the confines of a car, as Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) star as a couple who encounter some very unfortunate situations when they get lost in the British highways on their journey to a country getaway and music festival.  The high-concept premise is certainly intriguing, and this trailer plays much more like a mood piece rather than a plot-driven trailer, as we don’t really get a clear sense of what’s happening.  What is clear, though, is the fact that Englert and Caestecker’s charcters are in for a very bumpy ride.

Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot Adds Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker

As production on the pilot for Joss Whedon’s Marvel S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series gears up to begin in January, two more actors have been added to the cast.  Clark Gregg is already set to reprise his role as Agent Coulson in the pilot, and Ming-Na (ER) was recently set as one of the show’s leads, a pilot and weapons expert named Agent Melinda May.  Now THR reports that Elizabeth Henstridge (The Thompsons) and Iain De Caestecker (The Fades) have been added to the cast.

Both actors are relative newcomers to U.S. audiences, but Henstridge will play “science whiz” Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker is set as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz.  The two “spend all their time together—mostly bickering—and are masters at a remarkably young age of their respective fields.”  Whedon is writing the pilot alongside his brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen, and he’ll also be directing as well.  Should the pilot be picked up to series, the show will likely premiere Fall 2013 on ABC.
