73 New Hi-Res Avengers Age of Ultron Pictures

Marvel has unleashed an awesome collection of 73 hi-res images for "Avengers: Age of Ultron". The film will move the story forward into Marvel's Phase 3, spawning a new series of standalone films. It's a massive undertaking, which is obvious from the huge number of characters in these images. It's a miracle this movie isn't three hours long.

The sequel is directed by Joss Whedon and it stars Robert Downey Jr., James Spader, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgard, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Idris Elba and Paul Bettany.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens in theaters tomorrow.

Check out the images after the jump.

Jump Street Men in Black Crossover

Now that Sony Pictures is under new leadership, we have some new movement on the franchise front. It seems that the studio is planning to deliver a female spinoff based on "21 Jump Street" and "22 Jump Street", while series stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will continue playing the same characters in a crossover with the "Men in Black" franchise.

Honestly, at first glance, it looks crazy. However, given how Phil Lord and Chris Miller managed to turn an 1980s TV series into two awesome movies that benefited from self-awareness, maybe this can work, as well. Except that "Men in Black", despite a strong comedic tone, is pretty far from the levels of parody on display in "Jump Street". I'm not sure how the two will mesh.

Also, we don't actually have information that Lord and Miller will be involved in the making of these new movies, and they're really in demand right now with a line-up of projects that include a potential "Ghostbusters" spinoff starring Tatum and Chris Pratt that would eventually merge with Paul Feig's all-female "Ghostbusters", Warner Bros' "The Flash" movie, an animated "Spider-Man" movie for Sony, and "The LEGO Movie" sequel.

You know what ? The franchise market has grown incredibly confusing lately with all this spinoff business. Wouldn't it be better if studios would just focus on original ideas instead of trying to mash-up all these different franchises ?

mad-max-fury-road-retaliate-trailer-vehicle-pictures-new-posters

With the release date of George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road" fast approaching, Warner Bros. is making one final push in the movie's marketing campaign. We now have the final trailer titled "Retaliate", five new posters and ten images showcasing the film's dystopian vehicle designs. The trailer is still all kinds of insane, but lowers the volume a bit for the first part which is actually a lengthy clip from the film. The posters showcase some of the best art I've seen this year, and the vehicle designs are quite interesting, too. Since the post-apocalyptic machines bear names like "War Rig", "Peacemaker" and "The Gigahorse", I think you get the picture.

The film stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoe Kravitz, Courtney Eaton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nathan Jones and Abbey Lee Kershaw.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" opens in theaters on May 15, 2015 (2D and 3D).

Black Mass Trailer, Images and Poster

The first trailer, images and posters for the true story crime drama "Black Mass" have been released. Directed by Scott Cooper ("Out of the Furnace", "Crazy Heart") and based on Dick Lehr's book, the film stars Johnny Depp as the infamous Whitey Bulger, a notoriously violent criminal who worked as an FBI informer to eliminate a rival family invading his turf, but got burned when the FBI double crossed him and ultimately prosecuted him.

It looks like Depp gives one hell of a performance. He's undergone a serious make-up transformation, as is usually the case with recent characters played by Depp, but this time he truly looks and sounds terrifying. And Cooper is a very promising director, so I have high hopes for this movie. The cast also features Dakota Johnson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Juno Temple, Corey Stoll, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard and Julianne Nicholson.

"Black Mass" opens in theaters on September 18th.

hawkeye-sings-about-his-superpowers-jeremy-renner-parody-video

"The Avengers" superhero Hawkeye is in a tough position among all those big names like Captain America, Iron Man and The Hulk. He doesn't have any real superpowers, and he isn't given much to do, either. At least "Avengers: Age of Ultron" promises to redeem the character's reputation, but that doesn't mean that the guy doesn't have a lot to get off his chest. And what better way to do that than through music. Jeremy Renner personifies Hawkeye once more in this touching video (a parody of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud"). Enjoy !

new-ted-2-red-band-trailer-clip-and-poster

A new red-band trailer has been released for "Ted 2" along with a clip and a new poster. Written, directed and voiced by Seth MacFarlane, the sequel finds the foul-mouthed teddy bear in a dillema. Both he, or it, and his girlfriend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he's a person in a court of law. The new trailer is hilarious. I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud while watching a movie trailer, but I hope that they didn't just throw in all the best stuff. The "Law & Order" gag was pretty amazing. The film also stars Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, John Slattery, Patrick Warburton and Morgan Freeman.

"Ted 2" opens in theaters on June 26th.

Tyler Perry joins the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2
As the sequel to the 2014 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie is preparing to begin production next month, we have a new bit of casting. Variety reported that Tyler Perry ("Gone Girl") has joined the movie's cast and he will star as Baxter Stockman, a mad scientist, sociopath and creator of the "Mousers", machines designed to find and destroy sewer rats. The character was featured in the Nickelodeon animated TV show and is one of the major villains.

While Perry is know for his Madea roles, he's also been part of more serious projects like "Alex Cross" and "Gone Girl". This movie, however, begs for some scenery chewing. Megan Fox and Will Arnett will reprise their roles from the first film, and they will also be joined by Stephen Amell ("Arrow") as the vigilante Casey Jones.

Directed by Dave Green ("Earth to Echo "), "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" opens in theaters on June 3, 2016.

New trailer, featurette and poster for the Poltergeist remake

Today we have the second trailer, as well as a new featurette and poster for the "Poltergeist" remake. Produced by Sam Raimi ("Evil Dead") and directed by Gil Kenan ("Monster House"), the film looks like it follows the original closely while adding present-day elements to it. It definitely feels scary, but trailers have a habit of being better than the movie itself, so I can only be sure after I've watched the full picture. I can't imagine why the remake was necessary, especially given how many haunted house films have been released recently that have already drawn inspiration to some degree from the original "Poltergeist". The remake stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, Jane Adams, Kyle Catlett and Kennedi Clements.

"Poltergeist" opens in theaters on May 22nd (2D and 3D).

Check out the trailer, featurette and poster after the jump.

first-picture-of-jared-leto-as-the-joker-in-suicide-squad

Director David Ayer has released the first image of Jared Leto as The Joker from his upcoming DC Comics adaptation "Suicide Squad". The transformation is extreme, some might even say over-the-top, but I like that they're willing to go a different route with this character. It's also exactly what I'd expect from an Ayer film. Besides, if you want scary, it doesn't get much scarier that this. Would you want to cross paths with this character on a dark alley ? The tattoos, however, seem a little gratuitous, especially the "damaged" inscription on his forehead. They're also not in tune with the character's warped sense of humor, unless they're planning on providing an actual origin story for him that woul justify the tats.

The film also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Viola Davis as Amanda Walker.

"Suicide Squad" opens in theaters on August 5, 2016.

in-theaters-age-of-adaline-little-boy-water-diviner-adult-beginners

Two new wide releases have opened today in theaters: the romantic drama with a fantasy twist "The Age of Adaline" and the World War II inspirational drama "Little Boy". Neither film fared well with critics, but the latter received some exceptionally harsh reviews. In the limited release realm we have Russell Crowe's directorial debut "The Water Diviner" and the indie dramedy "Adult Beginners" starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. More about each movie after the jump.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

Adult Beginners Movie Trailer, Clips and Poster

The indie dramedy "Adult Beginners" is starting its limited run in theaters today. We have the official trailer, two clips and a poster for the film. Nick Kroll stars as a young, narcissistic entrepreneur who loses everything and moves in with his estranged pregnant sister (Rose Byrne), brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale) and 3-year-old nephew in the suburbs. Joel McHale, Caleb and Matthew Paddock, Caitlin FitzGerald, Josh Charles, Paula Garcés, Bobby Moynihan, Mike Birbiglia and Jane Krakowski co-star. Reviews are mostly mixed with critics complaining about the film's sitcom setup that doesn't bring anything new to the table despite its solid cast.

Check out the trailer, clips and poster after the jump.

The Water Diviner Movie Clips

Russell Crowe's directorial debut "The Water Diviner" opens today in theaters, so here are seven new clips from the movie. Crowe also stars as a father who travels to turkey after the Battle of Gallipoli in 1919 to search for his three missing sons. The cast also features Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney, Isabel Lucas, Cem Yilmaz, Jacqueline McKenzie and Ryan Corr co-star. Winner of three Australian Academy Awards, including Best Picture, the film has been receiving mixed reviews but after seeing it myself, I believe it's worth giving it a shot. Richard Roeper said in his review that the film is "A first-rate post-World War I drama with a heavy dose of sentiment and a gripping storyline." And if you're a fan of Crowe's, his performance doesn't disappoint.

Watch the clips after the jump.

Little Boy Movie Trailer, Clips and Poster

The faith-based drama "Little Boy" opens today in theaters, so here are the official trailer, three clips and a poster. Set in the 1940s, the film tells the story of a 7-year-old boy (Jakob Salvati) who is willing to do whatever it takes to end World War II and bring his father home. Directed by Alejandro Monteverde ("Bella"), the film also stars Emily Watson, Kevin James, Tom Wilkinson, Ted Levine, Michael Rapaport, Ben Chaplin, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ali Landry and David Henrie. Critics have slammed the movie for being an overly simplistic and manipulative melodrama, or as one critic called it "hard to hate...but easy to dismiss as well." Still, if you're into this kind of inspirational flicks and don't mind excessive heartstrings manipulation, it could be worth a watch.

Check out the trailer, clips and poster after the jump.

The Age of Adaline Movie Clips

Five new clips have been released for the fantastical drama "The Age of Adaline" which opens today in theaters. The film is directed by Lee Toland Krieger ("Celeste & Jesse Forever") and it stars Blake Lively ("Gossip Girl") as a woman who becomes immortal after suffering a near-fatal accident in the 1930s. While the critics haven't exactly fallen in love with Adaline, the film has been getting much better reviews than I was expecting. Reviewers noted that Lively, Harrison Ford and a sharp sense of style pretty much rescue this otherwise shallow melodrama. The film also stars Michiel Huisman, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker and Amanda Crew.

Vin Diesel announces Furious 8 Release Date
It had to happen. It was inevitable. When a film grosses over $1 billion in 17 days, you have to have a sequel. We first heard of "Furious 8" even before part seven opened in theaters, but after it exploded at the box-office, it was only a matter of time before we'd hear a confirmation. And that confirmation has arrived.

Vin Diesel has announced that "Furious 8" will be released on April 14th, 2017. The franchise will obviously take a new direction after Paul Walker's untimely death, but there is currently no information about what they're planning for the sequel. James Wan is not attached to the new installment and probably won't return to direct as he is set to begin work on "The Conjuring 2". Not to mention the rumors according to which Warner Bros. wants him to direct the "Aquaman" movie. Nevertheless, I'm sure we'll hear plenty more in the weeks and months to come.

The new season of the anthology series will star Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn as three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal whose lives collide in the scorched landscapes of California.

New Jurassic World Trailer and Three Posters

A new trailer and three posters have been released for "Jurassic World". Following a somewhat controversial first clip which was heavily criticized by pretty much everyone, the trailer offers plenty of new footage and a lot more action. The tone of this trailer is so dark, in fact, that it almost feels like the reboot is a crossover between "Alien" and "Jurassic Park". And for the most part I love it. I hope director Colin Trevvorow gets it right. Fans, however should lower their expectations, just in case. The posters are really cool, especially the one featuring Bryce Dallas Howard facing off with the killer dinosaur, which also gives us a sense of the creature's size.

The film stars Chris Pratt, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Judy Greer.

"Jurassic World" opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

Transformers 5 Confirmed for 2017 Release

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" took a heavy beating from critics and went home with a couple of Razzies, but the movie grossed over $1 billion worldwide, so a new sequel was, for obvious reasons, inevitable. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner has confirmed that "Transformers 5" is moving forward for a 2017 release and that the new installment is part of a brand new strategic plan for the franchise which is intended to become a Marvel-like shared universe with several sequels and spinoffs:
"Our plan with the studio and filmmakers you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie [TF4] to happen in 2017."
The series transformation will be handled by screenwriter Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind", "Angels & Demons"). Michael Bay is currently busy filming the Benghazi film "13 Hours", but he's expected to return at the helm of "Transformers 5".

True Survivor David Hasselhoff

If you haven't heard of "Kung Fury", well, you're not alone. I just found out about it myself. It's an insane Kickstarter-funded short that mimics the 1980s B-flick style and has raised $630,000 since December 2013. So, not surprisingly, the short's creators decided to get David Hasselhoff for the soundtrack. Hasselhoff sings (yes, he sings) the film's theme song "True Survivor", and the video perfectly captures the mood of the 1980s and showcases scenes from the short. If you really like the song, you can also buy it from Amazon and iTunes. And to appease your curiosity, here's the synopsis for "Kung Fury":
"During an unfortunate series of events a friend of Kung Fury is assasinated by the most dangerous kung fu master criminal of all time; Adolf Hitler, a.k.a Kung Führer. Kung Fury decides to travel back in time, to Nazi Germany, in order to kill Hitler and end the Nazi empire once and for all."

New Ant-Man Movie Trailer

A new trailer for Marvel's "Ant-Man" has been released online. The film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a master thief who gains the ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength with the help of a special suit designed by his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Together they must pull off a heist that will save the world.

The new trailer gives us more of the characters and the plot, but it's still not very exciting. Sure, there are a lot of neat visual effects, and the final moments of the trailer are truly funny, but it looks like Marvel is having a hard time selling this. Peyton Reed directs from a script by Adam McKay and Paul Rudd, based on the initial story/script developed by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish.

Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris and Judy Greer co-star. "Ant-Man" opens in theaters on July 17th.
