Terminator: Genisys doesn’t come out for eight months, and in all likelihood, we’ll have forgotten the movie’s atrocious first impression from the awful EW covers and photo shoot.  The film, which already has to overcome a fair amount of skepticism, has already opened itself up to ridicule with its promotional photos and vaguely defined plot (I don’t have a problem with calling an older Terminator “Pops”, but I know people who aren’t crazy about the moniker).  However, EW also has some storyboards to remind us that this is an action movie, and everyone likes action, right?  These storyboards give us a vague idea of what we can expect from the Future War scenes as the rebels fight the endoskeletons.  When the film begins its next promotional push and shows actual footage and stills, we’ll probably see a glimpse of these scenes, and hopefully they’ll get us excited about the movie.

Hit the jump to check out the Terminator: Genisys storyboards.  The film opens July 1, 2015 and stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, J.K. SimmonsDayo Okeniyi, and Byung Hun Lee.

Disney has released hi-res versions of previously released Into the Woods images along with a couple new stills as well.  The Disney production stars James Corden (Begin Again) and Emily Blunt as a Baker and his wife who venture into the woods to confront the witch (Meryl Streep) responsible for putting a curse on the childless couple.  Along the way, they run into a number of familiar fairy tale characters including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), her Prince (Chris Pine), Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), and the Wolf (Johnny Depp).  I really liked the extended featurette we saw last week, and I hope we’ll get a new trailer soon that will give us an even better idea of what to expect from director Rob Marshall‘s take on Stephen Sondheim‘s terrific musical.

Hit the jump to check out the Into the Woods images.  The film opens December 25th, and also stars Lucy Punch, Daniel HuttlestoneTracey Ullman, and Christine Baranski.

First Look at TERMINATOR: GENYSIS Provides Images of the Characters Plus Plot Details; Sarah Connor “Orphaned by a Terminator”

The Terminator franchise has now been going for thirty years, and it’s going to need a reboot of sorts if it plans to stay alive.  Personally, I’d be fine letting lay fallow or never coming back to it again since every sequel diminishes the ending of T2 (“We might have saved the world!”; “Nope.  No you didn’t.  In no way what so ever.”)  But as the cover of EW proclaims, Terminator: Genisys (spelling is for nerds) is trying to “save a billion-dollar franchise.”  And how do you go about that?  With a character description that will have you scratching your head.

Hit the jump to learn more about the movie and to check out the Terminator: Genisys images from EW, which provide a first look at the characters.  The film opens July 1, 2015 and stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee.

First ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING Images Have Simon Pegg Using Magic Powers in Terry Jones’ Sci-Fi Film That Reunites Monty Python Members

by     Posted 2 days ago

The first Absolutely Anything images have gone online, and while they don’t tell us too much about the movie, it’s still nice to get a first look at Terry Jones‘ upcoming sci-fi film.  Simon Pegg stars as Neil Clarke, a secondary school teacher who is given magical powers by aliens.  While that may seem fanciful, there seems to be a delightfully twisted edge to it.  “He can make anything happen”, says Jones, “[but] he doesn’t realize it until his colleague says, ‘What would you do if you could do anything?’ and Neil responds with, ‘I’d make an alien spaceship hit class 4C and vaporize them.’ Then there’s an explosion in the school, and they run to 4C’s classroom, open the door and there’s a vast hole in the ground.”

Hit the jump to check out the Absolutely Anything images.  The film also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jones’ Monty Python colleagues John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin plus Robin Williams providing the voice of Neil’s dog, Dennis.  Absolutely Anything is due out in summer 2015.

Marvel just dropped the mic and walked away on their huge Marvel Event announcing the movies that will fill their Phase 3 lineup.  Among the announcements was that one of the studio’s worst-kept secrets, a Black Panther movie, has been confirmed and also has a release date.  The movie is set for November 3, 2017.

Additionally, Marvel announced that the very talented Chadwick Boseman (42, Get on Up) would be playing the title role (sorry, people who want Idris Elba to star in everything).  It’s that kind of perfect Marvel casting of taking a talented up-and-comer and catapulting him into the stratosphere (we have yet to see it with an actress, but maybe we’ll get that with Captain Marvel).  Finally, Marvel released concept art for the character.  Hit the jump to check out the Black Panther image and to learn more about the character. [Update: Deadline adds that Boseman has signed a five-film contract with Marvel, which begins with an appearance in Captain America: Civil War and continues through Phase Three.]

Emma Watson Is in Mikael Nyqvist’s Grasp in First Image from Cult Thriller COLONIA

by     Posted 4 days ago

colonia-image-emma-watson

The first image from director Florian Gallenberger’s thriller Colonia has been released, giving us our first look at Emma Watson in the film.  Based on the true story of the Colonia Dignidad, the film revolves around a young couple, played by Watson and Daniel Brühl, who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973.  When Brühl’s character is abducted by the secret police, Watson’s character tracks him down to a sealed off area in the South known as Colonia Dignidad that is inhabited by a cult, lead by Mikael Nyqvist’s Paul Schäfer.  She subsequently joins the cult in order to find her husband.  This is certainly a very different kind of film for Watson, and indeed this first look image teases a rather tense relationship between her character and Nyqvist’s.  Production recently wrapped in Luxembourg and now moves on to Germany before finishing up in South America later this year.

Hit the jump to take a look at the first Colonia image.  The film also stars Richenda Carey, Vicky Krieps, August Zirner, and Martin WuttkeColonia will be released in theaters in October 2015.

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

thats-what-im-talking-about-logo

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.

First GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY TV Show Image Reveals the Team in Animated Form; Debuts on Disney XD in 2015

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 35 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.

Hit the jump to check out the new Birdman images.  The film also stars Edward NortonNaomi WattsEmma StoneZach GalifianakisAndrea Riseborough, and Amy RyanBirdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) opens in select theaters on October 17th.
