The first Avengers: Age of Ultron image has now landed online…officially.  Yes, onlookers previously snapped shots of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen filming an action sequence from the Marvel sequel a few weeks ago, and we’ve recently seen a few videos featuring Captain America, but today the first official image from the set has arrived courtesy of the one and only Robert Downey Jr.  The actor started up a Twitter account recently, and today he took the opportunity to provide a “sneak peek” at Avengers: Age of Ultron with a snapshot that also includes executive producer Jeremy Latcham.  There’s not really much to see, as both are wearing reflective vests likely due to the hazardous nature of the scene that was being filmed, but it serves as a fun “heads up” that the actor might be regularly sharing images from the Avengers 2 set.

Hit the jump to check out the set image.  Written and directed by Joss Whedon, the film also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Paul Bettany, and Thomas KretschmannAvengers: Age of Ultron opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Sony Pictures has released the first images from The Equalizer.  The movie is based off the 1980s TV series, and stars Denzel Washington as a former covert operations officer who dedicates his life to helping people in trouble.  However, Washington says it wasn’t the original series that drew him to the project; it was the material.  “It’s a classic story, the innocent girl and the guy coming in to save the day and kick some butt,” Washington tells USA Today.  “You’ll get some popcorn and escape for a couple of hours.”  Washington seems to enjoy making these kinds of movies since five of his last six films have had action elements.  The Equalizer could turn into a franchise for Washington since a sequel is already in the works.  But Washington remains cautious saying, “You can’t make No. 2 before you make No. 1. It’s called show business. We’ve handled the show part of it. We’ll see how the business part goes.”

First Look at Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb and Cody on the Set of FAST & FURIOUS 7

by     Posted Yesterday

fast-furious-7-caleb-walker-cody-walker-slice

Last week, we reported that Fast & Furious 7 had brought on Paul Walker‘s brothers Caleb and Cody to help finish the production.  The specifics of how they’ll help the production haven’t been revealed, but presumably they’ll be working as body doubles.  There may be other ways the production tries to fill in Walker’s role whether it’s through CGI and/or re-writes, but at the very least, hiring Walker’s brothers is a sign of respect.  It also helps that they look a lot like him.  Vin Diesel posted a set photo on his Facebook page, and while I’m not sure which one is Caleb and which is Cody, the brother on the right bears such a strong resemblance that they might even be able to pull off close-ups.

It’s odd to think that a Fast & Furious movie will be so heavily scrutinized right down to how it’s trying to manage Paul Walker’s unfinished scenes.  We go to these movies for dumb fun, but there will be a pall over the finished film as it tries to find the balance between big, brash action and deep respect for its deceased star.  Check out the set photo after the jump.  Fast & Furious 7 opens April 10, 2015.

Filming on Justin Kurzel‘s Macbeth is currently underway, and the first two images have been released.  The adaptation of Shakespeare’s play stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Scottish king with Marion Cotillard playing Lady Macbeth.  In an interview with the Daily Mail, Fassbender says all the cast speaks with Scottish accents except for Cotillard.  “We felt it would be unreasonable for her to put on a Scottish accent,” says Fassbender.  “It would not be unreasonable to presume that her character spent time in the French court.”  I’m willing to allow for that assumption when there’s a great actress like Cotillard in such a juicy role.

Hit the jump to check out the Macbeth images and to learn more about Kurzel and Fassbender’s take on the material.  The film also stars Paddy Considine, David Thewlis, Sean Harris, Jack Reynor and Elizabeth DebickiMacbeth opens in the U.K. in early 2015.

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 Image and Plot Details for Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT Starring Emma Stone, Colin Firth, and Marcia Gay Harden

A new image has gone online for Woody Allen‘s upcoming film Magic in the Moonlight.  We previously reported that the movie “is a romantic comedy about an Englishman (Colin Firth) brought in to help unmask a possible swindle.  Personal and professional complications ensue. The film is set in the south of France in the 1920s against a backdrop of wealthy mansions, the Côte d’Azur, jazz joints and fashionable spots for the wealthy of the Jazz Age.”  The latest issue of EW reports that the “possible swindle” involves the Englishman trying “to expose a phony mystic (Emma Stone), only to end up falling for her.”  Furthermore, Marcia Gay Harden will play “Stone’s mother and co-conspirator.”

Allen says he had the idea for “ages” but it only recently clicked when he decided to set it in the south of France in the 1920s rather than the present day.  Allen also said that the reason for him shooting so many of his recent films in Europe is “By sheer accident because I was getting European financing. I’ve wound up being a foreign filmmaker.”  Hit the jump to check out the image.  Magic in the Moonlight opens July 25th.

First Trailer and Images for Tommy Lee Jones’ THE HOMESMAN Starring Jones, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, and Meryl Streep

The first trailer and images have gone online for Tommy Lee Jones‘ western drama, The Homesman.  The story centers on a claim-jumping rascal (Jones) and a frontierswoman (Hilary Swank) as they escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa and battle the harsh elemental conditions of the prairie.  I loved Jones’ 2005 film The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, which played like a modern-day western.  The Homesman looks more like a straight entry into the genre, but also an interesting one.  There appears to be a tricky balance between Jones’ slightly off-kilter character and the serious dangers he and his traveling companions must face.  Nevertheless, it has an outstanding cast, and I assume we’ll be seeing it later this year since it will be released next month in France.  It’s also a safe assumption that it will make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, so I’m eager to hear the buzz on the picture.

First Look at Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson in Alex Garland’s Sci-Fi Thriller EX MACHINA

The first image has arrived from 28 Days Later and Sunshine screenwriter Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina.  The psychological thriller revolves around a billionaire programmer who invites a young employee to spend a week at his remote estate and to participate in a test involving an artificially intelligent female robot that he invented.  Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson star, and based on this first image it appears that Isaac is playing the inventor.  The actor previously told us that the pic is a “provocative, sci-fi sexual thriller” and described it as “a great three-hander with people torturing each other with their brains, in rooms.”  It’s certainly a fascinating premise, and Garland’s track record as a screenwriter (which also includes Never Let Me Go and Dredd) is great so I’m eager to see how he fares in the director’s chair.

Hit the jump to check out the first Ex Machina image.  The film also stars Alicia Vikander and does not currently have a release date, but this Ex Machina image debut may be a sign that it could pop up on the 2014 Cannes Film Festival schedule that goes up soon.

Two New Images from THE VOICES Starring Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, and Jacki Weaver

One of the films I’m really bummed I missed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Marjane Satrapi‘s The Voices.  Per the Sundance synopsis, “This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry’s evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation.”  In his review, Adam called the film, “joyously, unabashedly out of its mind,” and these images back that opinion up.  Now I want to see this movie even more.

Quicksilver Runs on Walls in New X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Image; Simon Kinberg Reveals How the Character Fits into the Film

x-men-days-of-future-past-quicksilver

A final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past is due to arrive next week, but to hold us over, 20th Century Fox has released a new image that focuses on what has become the most talked-about character from the film: Quicksilver.  Evan Peters plays the fast-moving mutant in what amounts to a small supporting role, but reaction to the character’s look has thus far been less than enthusiastic—it doesn’t help that the first footage of Quicksilver in action came in a Carl’s Jr. commercial.  In this new X-Men: Days of Future Past image, we get a peek at Quicksilver’s abilities as he runs alongside a wall, sporting a Pink Floyd t-shirt and a pair of wind-resistant goggles.

Additionally, screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg recently spoke a bit about how Quicksilver fits into the overall story, teasing whether they will address the character’s true parentage in the film and talking about the dual usage of the character in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Hit the jump to check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past image and quotes from Kinberg.  The film opens May 23rd.
