Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb Trailer

The first trailer and poster for the sequel "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" have been released. The sequel finds night security guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) embarking on a new adventure which involves museums coming alive. This time, it's the British Museum in London where he must uncover the secret behind the artifact that is responsible for all the magic. The cast will include old and new characters who will be played by Rebel Wilson, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ben Kingsley, Ricky Gervais, Rami Malek, Steve Coogan, Owen Wilson, Patrick Gallagher, Mizuo Peck, Bill Cobbs, Dick Van Dyke and Mickey Rooney. I really enjoyed the first film, but the second was a total disappointment. I hope this third installment can bring back some of the magic of the original.

"Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" opens in theaters on December 19th.

Check out the trailer and poster after the jump.

Trailer, posters and images for Mad Max Fury Road

Warner Bros. has released a full barrage of publicity for the highly anticipated sequel/reboot "Mad Max: Fury Road", which includes the first official trailer and five new posters and images. Directed by George Miller, the post-apocalyptic actioner stars Tom Hardy as Max, a man seeking peace following the loss of his wife and child, who crosses paths with an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron) a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. She is on the run from Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), from whom something irreplaceable has been taken and who ruthlessly pursues Furiosa and her band of rebels.

The film is supposedly one big chase scene from beginning to end and it no doubt looks determined to deliver on that promise. The film also stars Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosei Huntington-Whiteley, Nathan Jones and Abbey Lee Kershaw.

box-office-lucy-scarlett-johansson-hercules-dwayne-johnson

This weekend is living proof that PG-13 big budget epics are no match for a good mid-budget R-rated action flick. The lesson of the week was offered by Luc Besson's sci-fi actioner "Lucy" starring Scarlett Johansson, which opened at the top of the box-office with an impressive $44 million versus a $40 million budget. Pretty far behind in second place, Brett Ratner's $100 million sword-and-sandal epic "Hercules" starring Dwayne Johnson only managed to gross $29 million for its first weekend, not really below expectations, but a difficult outcome for a movie this expensive. The film also grossed $28 million overseas, which sweetens the result a bit for Paramount.

This week's other wide opener, the romcom "And So It Goes" starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton finished eigth with $4.5 million, although the film was released on far less screens than the other wide releases.

New Wide Releases: "Lucy", "Hercules", "And So It Goes".

Batman V Superman Image of Wonder Woman

At this year's Comic-Con, Warner Bros. unveiled a new image for Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". The image offers a first look at Gal Gadot ("Fast & Furious 6") as Wonder Woman. Unlike the Batman image released earlier this week, this one is a full-body shot of the DC comics character. Honestly, she looks more like an Amazon warrior princess than Wonder Woman. Very Dark Knight-ish. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Laurence Fishburne.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.

Hercules Movie Clips starring Dwayne Johnson

Five new clips have been released for Brett Ratner's fantasy actioner "Hercules". Based on Radical Comics' Hercules by Steve Moore, the film stars Dwayne Johnson as the legendary hero.

Evan Rachel Wood
Anthony Hopkins
Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins ("Thor") and Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood ("Mildred Pierce") have joined the cast of HBO's upcoming television series remake/adaptation of Michael Crichton's "Westworld". The original 1973 sci-fi classic starred Yul Brynner as a malfunctioning robot cowboy in a futuristic Wild West-themed adult amusement park.

The series is being developed by J.J. Abrams ("Lost") and Jonathan Nolan ("Person of Interest"). The story of the updated version has been described as "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin."

Hopkins will stars as "Dr. Ford, the uncompromising creator of the park and conductor of the creations inside it, and he views the robots as utterly inhuman, little more than livestock. In the wider context of the show, he’s looking like a complex kind of ‘big bad’."

Rachel Wood will play "Dolores is created to be a sassy farm girl; the beautiful girl next door type who has no idea that the life she’s living is a lie. She’s essentially a slave to the guests of the park but has no idea [of her true nature.]"

James Marsden is also in talks to join the cast of "Westworld" as "Flood, your classic Western hero. He’s all about adventure and romance; his two pursuits in life are the open plains and, as I’m sure you guessed, the lovely Dolores Abernathy."

box-office-the-purge-anarchy-dawn-planet-apes

The sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" still dominated the weekend at the box-office. The film grossed $36 million in the 3-day timeframe and managed to hold off some decent competition from three new wide releases. The first of these, "The Purge: Anarchy", another sequel, opened in second place with $28 million, a solid debut for the $9 million horror. This is another success for Blumhouse Productions, who have basically patented the micro-budget horror film. While this is still a step back from last year's "The Purge" which opened with $34 million, "Anarchy" has a somewhat better reception than the first film among both critics and moviegoers, which could translate into more attention, and maybe a higher overall gross.

In third place lands Disney's animated sequel "Planes: Fire and Rescue" which grossed $18 million in its first three days. This is less than the first installment's $22 million opening weekend, but the "Planes" franchise is essentially a small budget affair for Disney ($50 million budget), so it won't take long for the studio to earn back its money and turn a profit.

This week's disappointment is surely the R-rated comedy "Sex Tape" starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel, which grossed $15 million. It's a weak debut for the film, which was expected to earn at least $20 million, but it could be explained by the vast number of brutal critical reviews and low scores from moviegoers. 

New Wide Releases: "The Purge: Anarchy", "Sex Tape", "Planes: Fire and Rescue".

Trailer and poster for Ouija starring Olivia Cooke

The first trailer and poster for the horror film "Ouija" have been released. The film is based on the Ouija Board game and it follows a group of friends who must confront their fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.

We've all seen these Ouija boards used in various horror films to generate suspense and jump scares, but to focus an entire film on scenes featuring people sitting around the board could prove to be problematic. It will either be a "Jumanji" type film, or just another heavily cliched horror flick designed to cash in on Halloween.

The film is produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Jason Blum, the people responsible for "The Purge" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake. The cast features Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith, Bianca Santos and Ana Coto.

"Ouija" opens in theaters on October 24th.

Avengers Age of Ultron Official Images First Look

The first official images for Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" have been released via Entertainment Weekly. The images offer a first look at the film's central characters. The story sets the Avengers in a battle against a new foe, the artificially intelligent robot Ultron, who will be played by James Spader through performance capture technology. The difference in Ultron's origin story will be that the robot is now created by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) as an Iron Man replacement, because Stark is now "a little burned and traumatized" and is determined to take a break from fighting super-villains.

The sequel also stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.
