On last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (read Evan’s recap here), the show introduced the character Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) who, as we previously reported, would be “popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.”  Today, we have an official image of Adrianne Palicki in Mockingbird’s tactical outfit along with some concept art.

Hit the jump to check out the outfit along with an explanation from Costume Designer Ann FoleyAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesday nights on ABC, and if you don’t watch it, you may want to next week because it’s going to have the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Filming Begins on Richard Linklater’s THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT; Logo Revealed

As Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking Boyhood looks poised to be a serious awards contender this year, the director has already started production on his next film.  That’s What I’m Talking About is Linklater’s long-developed “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused, which takes place over the course of a single weekend in the 1980s and revolves around a college freshman and pitcher for the baseball team.  As with Dazed and Confused, the cast is made up of largely new faces—Blake Jenner (Glee) and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street) are the leads—but also like Dazed and Confused, we could be looking back on this one in ten years and saying, “Man, everybody is in this movie!”

Today marks the second day of production on That’s What I’m Talking About, and to mark the occasion producer Megan Ellison shared an image of the film’s logo on Twitter.  Unsurprisingly, it’s delightfully 80s.  Take a look after the jump.  The film also stars Zoey Deutch, Will Brittain, and Glen Powell.

Disney has released the first Guardians of the Galaxy TV show image from its upcoming animated iteration of the popular Marvel property.  Well the property didn’t used to be popular exactly, but ever since director James Gunn’s Marvel Studios film smashed into theaters this August, it’s become a bona fide phenomenon.  And Disney certainly knows how to capitalize on interest in all things GotG while we await the 2017 feature film sequel.  The animated spinoff will premiere as part of the Marvel Universe block on Disney XD sometime next year, and the first image of these animated iterations has landed online.  Everyone looks quite similar to their movie counterpart aside from Drax, who appears to have gone through a minor redesign.  Regardless, I’m sure young Guardians of the Galaxy fans will be eager to catch the team in weekly installments on the Disney spinoff network.  I am Groot.

Check out Over 35 Images from David Ayer’s World War II Tank Film FURY Starring Brad Pitt

Sony pictures has released over 35 new images from David Ayer‘s Fury online.  The original story is set in 1945 as the Nazi regime is in collapse, and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank called “Fury”.  Brad Pitt plays U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Wardaddy, who leads his unit in the fight against a desperate German army.  Ayer’s End of Watch was surprisingly good, and I’m hoping that movie’s quality storytelling carries over into Fury, which sounds like it could be a unique film in the World War II action genre.   Throw in a strong supporting cast, and this is one of the must-see movies of the fall.

Sony has released over 35 new Fury images, and you can check them out after the jump.  The film opens October 17th, and also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal, and Jason Isaacs.

First EQUALS Image Reveals Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in Drake Doremus’ Sci-Fi Romance

by     Posted 27 days ago

equals-image-kristen-stewart

The first Equals image from director Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) upcoming sci-fi film has landed online.  The film stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult and takes place in a world without greed, poverty, violence, or emotion.  A new disease called Switched-On-Syndrome threatens to activate these dormant emotions, instilling love, depression, sensitivity, and fear into those affected, who are then swiftly sent away and never seen again.  Stewart and Hoult’s characters are caught in the middle of the dilemma, and as can be gleaned from this first image, the two strike up a forbidden relationship.  I’ve been incredibly curious about this film for some time now, and I was really impressed with Doremus’ Like Crazy follow-up Breathe In.  Moreover, I’m interested to see how Stewart adapts to Doremus’ heavily improvised style of directing.

Take a look at the first Equals image after the jump.  The film also stars Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver and opens in theaters sometime next year.

Now that the year is winding down, there are only a handful of movies I can’t wait to see, and Birdman is near the top of the list.  Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ambitious black comedy, which was made to look like one long shot, stars Michael Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero, and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.  Nine new Birdman images have been released, and looking at the diversity of the images, I have no idea how they can be connected by one shot, but I can’t wait to find out.  The movie has picked up rave reviews at the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals, and we’ll be hearing word out of the New York Film Festival soon.

Disney has released a new Big Hero 6 trailer, and the focus continues to be on how Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit) is adorable.  We do get a bit more of the plot in this trailer, which shows that Baymax was created by Hiro Hamada’s (Ryan Potter) deceased older brother, and we also briefly see the other members of the crime-fighting team, but Disney knows that their best shot at selling this movie is on Baymax.  He’s cute, he’s funny, and he’s huggable.  You could do far worse.

Miller, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Genesis Rodriguez, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk, and Maya RudolphBig Hero 6 opens in 3D on November 7th.  Click on the corresponding links for Christina’s interviews with directors Don Hall & Chris Williams, Head of Animation Zach Parrish, and 24 things to know about the film.

New BLACKHAT Trailer and Images Have Chris Hemsworth Going around the Globe to Stop Cybercrime in Michael Mann’s New Thriller

blackhat-movie-image-chris-hemsworth-slice

Legendary and Universal have released the first trailer for Michael Mann‘s new film, BlackhatChris Hemsworth plays “a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network,” and that brief logline is really all I can tell you after watching this trailer, which seems startling schizophrenic.  There are crime aspects, but there’s also globe-trotting action spectacle along with “serious” commentary on our digitally interconnected world.  I like how it’s trying to be scary about how “vulnerable” we all are even though that’s just life.  I’m really hoping this movie is more than sensationalism, and Mann has delivered something that’s on par with the thoughtful crime films we’ve seen from him in the past.

Hit the jump to check out the Blackhat trailer along with 10 new images.  The film opens January 16, 2015, and also stars Viola Davis, Tang Wei, and Wang Leehom.

Kathryn Bigelow’s newest project may not be a military-themed thriller, but it could be her most important work yet.  The anti-poaching PSA Last Days is set to premiere Saturday, September 27th at the 52nd New York Film Festival, followed by a panel discussion titled “The Crisis in Elephant Poaching.”  Bigelow will moderate the panel, with WildAid’s Peter Knights, Assistant District Attorney of New York County Julieta V. Lozano, award-winning journalist Peter Godwin, and Somali human rights activist K’naan Warsame participating.  Tickets to the free event will be distributed one hour prior to its 6pm start time.

The PSA is one of a few anti-poaching projects to make headlines in recent years.  Leonardo DiCaprioTobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy have teamed up to produce an anti-poaching drama for Warner Bros. with Will Staples writing the screenplay.  Even more recently, Angelina Jolie is lining up her next next film as a directorAfrica, the biopic of paleo-archeologist Richard Leakey, who devoted his life to combating elephant and rhino poaching.  Bigelow gets the first crack at it this weekend with Last Days.  Hit the jump to see the first look at the PSA.

First PETER PAN Image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is Nightmare Fuel

by     Posted 29 days ago

christopher-walken-allison-williams-peter-pan-slice

Earlier this month we got a look at Girls star Allison Williams in costume and makeup as the titular character in NBC’s upcoming staging of Peter Pan (as I noted at the time that continues a long held stage tradition of having a female play the lead in this piece).  That was nice and pleasant.  But this new image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook is downright creepy and unsettling.  Maybe it’s the way he’s posed with Williams (whose clothing ensemble looks odd when contrasted against the Walken monstrosity), but I definitely think this picture would feel less “wrong” if they were separated.  Right now it looks like one of those awkward, posed family photos you can take at Target.

Hit the jump to never sleep again.  The special airs on December 4th. In addition to Walken and Williams, Christian Borle will play the role of Smee as well as the role of Mr. Darling.

Hey There, Creepy Dollface: 25 New ANNABELLE Images Released

by     Posted 29 days ago

annabelle-movie

Warner Bros. has released 25 new Annabelle images. I am not the target audience for this movie.  The Conjuring spinoff holds no interest for me because I struggle to understand why its central figure—a cursed doll—is scary.  The story behind the doll is that anyone who touches it eventually dies horribly, so I guess this is an origin story for a doll.  I know people like The Conjuring, but I don’t know how many left thinking, “Damn.  That movie was spooky, but I need more of that doll!”  But creepy dolls have been around in cinema for a while, so there are clearly people who are sacred of them.  I’m just not particularly terrified of something I can kick across the room.

Colin Trevorrow may have wrapped Jurassic World at the beginning of August, but that’s not stopping him from sharing more images from set, and this latest one is a fun throwback to the original film.  Remember when Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) tries to ditch Jurassic Park before all hell breaks loose and accidently knocks down the sign pointing to the East Dock in the process?  It looks as though that same sign made it into the fourth installment.

Hit the jump to check out that new Jurassic World image for yourself.  The film stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy SimpkinsVincent D’OnofrioIrrfan KhanJake JohnsonJudy Greer, and Omar Sy, and will hit theaters on June 12, 2015.
