Today, we’ve got four exclusive images from the upcoming thriller, Reasonable Doubt. Per the official synopsis, “When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run, he feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal who was found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.”

MGM and Sony have just released the new trailer and poster for Jose Padilha‘s remake of Paul Verhoeven‘s RoboCop. The film takes place in 2028 and finds the sleazy OminiCorp putting its drone technology to use on domestic grounds by way of taking blown-apart cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and turning him into a cyborg police officer. The experiment on Murphy is meant to be the first of many RoboCops that the company hopes to put in every city around the country, but obviously things don’t go as planned. For me, this trailer is not a good sign. None of the action looks particularly interesting and the few laugh lines (“Robophobic”, “Good Cop/RoboCop”) land with a thud. I think we could be looking at a movie that’s just as pointless as the remake of Verhoeven’s Total Recall.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson. RoboCop opens February 12, 2014.
Here’s some more casting news:

Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop has an incredibly difficult line to walk. Whereas Paul Verhoeven‘s original gleefully fired off satire and explosive action, Padilha seems to be trying to keep the satire (Samuel L. Jackson‘s Bill O’Reilly-esque pundit) while maintaining a slightly serious tact by commenting on drone warfare and exploring questions of free will. I don’t know if he’ll be able to pull it off, but I’m curious what we’ll see from a new trailer when it’s released on Thursday. In the meantime, there are new images showing off Jackson’s character, Pat Novak, as well as Liz Kline (Jennifer Ehle), Maddox (Jackie Earle Haley), and Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman).
Hit the jump to check out the images, and be sure to come back Thursday when the new trailer is released. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Michael Keaton. RoboCop opens on February 12, 2014.
Here are today’s latest casting announcements:
- Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Double) will reunite to star in Project X-director Nima Nourizadeh’s new action comedy, American Ultra, scripted by Max Landis (Chronicle).
- Stewart has also signed on to a small role in Tim Blake Nelson’s Anesthesia.
- Samuel L. Jackson (The Samaritan) will reteam with John Cusack in Tod William’s Cell, a Stephen King adaptation.

Yesterday, we got the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it was pretty great. For those of you not familiar with the plot (and you might not be since the trailer is heavier on the theme), the story has Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) teaming up to face off against an assassin known as “The Winter Soldier”. We’ve now grabbed 50 images from the trailer, and they highlight two things. First, there’s a lot more Winter Soldier than you think since the character flashes by quickly and is in the far background of the shots. Second, this trailer gives away some big plot points, but you probably wouldn’t notice them because, again, everything is going by so fast. Consider that a minor spoiler warning.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
We got a look at Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury in the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier earlier today, but now a first-look image from another Jackson films casts the actor in a different light. Jackson plays the President of the United States in Big Game, which revolves around a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) who stumbles upon a crashed Air Force One in the wilderness and subsequently aims to get the President to safety. Jalmari Helander directs the action adventure pic, and along with the first image, it has been announced that Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber, and Ted Levine have been added to a cast that also includes Jim Broadbent and Ray Stevenson.
Hit the jump to take a look at the image and to read the full press release. Big Game is currently in production in Bavaria.
The first trailer for Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now available. In the upcoming sequel, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) team up to face off against Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who has been survived and become an assassin known as “The Winter Soldier”. However, the trailer doesn’t explain the Winter Soldier’s origin. That’s okay because it does an excellent job of conveying the moral conflict at the center of the movie: Captain America’s values of right-and-wrong versus the grey area inhabited by S.H.I.E.L.D. Beyond that central conflict, you have plenty of terrific looking action and a bad day for the helicarrier.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
I was so hoping we were done with trailers for trailers. We hadn’t seen one in a while, so perhaps the trend had passed. But Marvel has decided to pick it back up to promote tomorrow’s trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And I get it. People are excited to see the movie, but if that’s the case, then just show them the trailer. Every single movie website is going to pick it up whether it’s released today or tomorrow. If it’s a good trailer, it will spread quickly regardless of whether there was a teaser for it or not.
But again, I understand that some people can’t wait to get any look at the film they can, so hit the jump if you want to check out the very brief footage. Click here for the new poster, click here for new images, and come back tomorrow at 12pm EST to see the full trailer. The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
Update: Thanks to ET, you can now watch almost one minute of the trailer.
Following the release of a new poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel has released two new images from the upcoming movie. In the upcoming sequel, Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) team up to face off against Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who has been survived and become an assassin known as “The Winter Soldier”. Both of the images are from the Comic-Con footage we saw this past summer, and the elevator fight is incredibly well executed. The USA Today article doesn’t have any new details on the film, but that’s okay. Remember, the latest Marvel movie, Thor: The Dark World, hasn’t even opened yet. There’s plenty of time to get excited for Cap’s next adventure.
Hit the jump to check out the images, and remember that the first trailer will go online tomorrow. The film also stars Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
As preparations are well underway for Marvel’s sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron, writer/director Joss Whedon continues to finalize his cast. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson are all poised to reprise their roles in the follow-up, and Whedon has added a few exciting new characters to the mix: brother/sister duo Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and robot villain Ultron. James Spader is signed on to play Ultron, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are in different stages of negotiations for Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively.
Jackson—who just made a cameo on ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.—recently spoke a bit about the follow-up, confirming that Olsen will indeed be playing new Avengers member Scarlet Witch and noting that filming will begin next March in London. Hit the jump for more.
FilmDistrict has released a behind-the-scenes featurette for director Spike Lee’s Oldboy, and it reveals a great deal of new footage from the reimagining of Park Chan-wook’s revenge classic. The story centers on a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped for mysterious reasons, and is released twenty years later with no explanation. Once free, he goes on a mission to find his captor and take revenge. In this featurette we see Lee, screenwriter Mark Protosevich, and the main cast discuss the film and Lee’s take on the material. We also get to see to some very promising new footage, including a glimpse at Brolin’s iteration of the famous hallway fight scene.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Imperioli, Lance Reddick, James Ransone, and Rami Malek. Oldboy opens on November 27th.
The first trailer for director José Padilha’s RoboCop remake just hit, and a few new official stills came along for the ride. They feature new looks at stars Joel Kinnaman, who plays protagonist Alex Murphy and is seen here in full, tactical Robo-getup; Abbie Cornish as his wife, Clara Murphy; Samuel L. Jackson as conservative media mogul, Pat Novak; and RoboCop-creator, Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman) with Michael Keaton as OmniCorp’s CEO, Raymond Sellars.
Also starring Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley, RoboCop opens February 7, 2014. Hit the jump to view the new images.
Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for director Jose Padilha’s remake of RoboCop. While it’s already getting plenty of snark from internet grumps, I rather enjoyed this first look at the new film. Sure, it’s got a bit of a Total Recall or [insert recent sci-fi movie] vibe going on, but there’s plenty here to suggest that the filmmakers will give nods to fans of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original while putting their own stamp on the new iteration. Star Joel Kinnaman looks to be charismatic as Alex Murphy, a trait that he’ll struggle to regain once making his transformation. There’s plenty of screentime to go around as we also get looks at Samuel L. Jackson’s media mogul, Michael Keaton’s string-pulling CEO and Gary Oldman’s conflicted scientist. There’s plenty to look forward to, so let’s not lose our collective shit just yet.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and, while you’re at it, check out these newly-released official images from the film. The film also stars Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Jackie Earle Haley. RoboCop opens February 7, 2014.
FilmDistrict has released four new images from Spike Lee‘s remake/re-adaptation of Oldboy. The story centers on a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped for mysterious reasons, and is released twenty years later with no explanation. Once free, he goes on a mission to find his captor and take revenge. I’m really excited by the visual style Lee is bringing to the picture. It’s unlikely that he’ll be able to eclipse Park Chan-wook‘s 2003 film of the same name, but he might come out with something that’s on par.
Hit the jump to check out the images along with a video of Lee talking about reteaming with Samuel L. Jackson after twenty years and the importance of finding a unique look for the actor. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Michael Imperioli, Lance Reddick, and Sharlto Copley. Oldboy opens November 27th.
