Holy hell, did you see that Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer?
The villain introduces himself promising to show us "something beautiful: everyone screaming...for mercy!" so obviously he's a bit of a maniac.
According to James Spader, who voices the heaviest heavy Earth's Mightiest heroes have yet faced, Ultron is straight-up "psychopathic."
With this Friday's White Bird in a Blizzard, Shailene Woodley continues her year of exceptional performances in films based on novels.
The acclaimed young actress kicked off 2014 in blockbuster fashion starring in Divergent, the first in a series of franchise pictures based on a bestselling series. Over the summer, she stuck the landing playing as in the adaptation of the enormously popular The Fault in Our Stars.
White Bird in a Blizzard is adapted from the book of the same name by Laura Kasischke, but it steps away from the Young Adult tone of both Woodley's other 2014 efforts.
She stars as Kat Connor, a teen experiencing a sexual awakening in 1988, just as her beautiful mother, frustrated by her daughter's blossoming and years in a loveless marriage, suddenly disappears without a trace. As Kat attempts to track down her vivacious mom, she juggles her repressed father, her hunky but dim boyfriend, and the detective investigating her missing mother.
It's the latest from acclaimed indie auteur Gregg Araki. With Woodley maintaining the film's center, White Bird in a Blizzard also stars Eva Green (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), Christopher Meloni (Man of Steel), Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead remake), Gabourey Sidibe (Precious), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story), and Thomas Jane (The Mist).
IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was on hand for the White Bird in a Blizzard press conference in Los Angeles, speaking with Shailene Woodley about stardom, how she chooses a project, the awkwardness of onscreen intimacy, nudity, playing Kat, and the themes of White Bird in a Blizzard.
New family, new address, same unspeakable horror.

Christian Bale has played plenty of venerated figures, from Jesus to Batman to Bob Dylan to Moses.
He's tackling a messianic modern tech figurehead too, as he has signed on to star as Steve Jobs in the as-yet untitled Jobs movie directed by Danny Boyle.
One last poster pulls out all the stops to show how epically epic this epic conclusion to an epic trilogy The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is going to be.
Swedish born actor Peter Stormare has become one of the most popular supporting actors working in Hollywood today.
Stormare first gained attention for his role in the Coen Brothers classic Fargo, and has gone on to appear in such successful films as The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Armageddon, The Big Lebowski, Minority Report, Constantine, Pain & Gain, and 22 Jump Street. He is also known for his work on television playing mob boss John Abruzzi on Prison Break, and most recently appearing as main antagonist Berlin on The Blacklist. But now Stormare returns to the big screen with his new film Autumn Blood, which is available on DVD beginning October 14th.
In Autumn Blood, a widowed mother dies and leaves her two children orphaned. Fearing being split up they keep their mother's death a secret. They survive until villagers destroy their innocence when they brutally assault the girl. Now the siblings must come of age to protect each other and survive. The film was co-written and directed by Markus Blunder, and in addition to Stormare, also stars Sophie Lowe (Adore), Maxmilian Harnisch (TV’s Fast Forward), and Gustaf Skarsgard (The Way Back).
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with the great Peter Stormare about his work on Autumn Blood, as well as his recurring role on The Blacklist, and a possible sequel to The Big Lebowski. The veteran actor discussed his new film Autumn Blood, why he wanted to be in the movie, how he’s different than most actors, appearing in a film with very little dialogue, what he told Steven Spielberg would make Minority Report better, possibly returning for The Big Lebowski 2, and his recurring role on The Blacklist.

Now it's Ray Fisher's turn to share his thoughts on the cinematic debut of Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, slugging it out alongside the Leaguers in two movies, and how surprised he was to discover the plan for a solo Cyborg adventure.
The first teaser trailer for The Gambler remake knows just what it's doing.
First off, it keeps things snappy, clocking in at just over one minute. Secondly, it keeps things salty, going red band so as to allow John Goodman to say repeatedly say "Fuck you" with relish. And finally, it keeps things high-impact, eschewing story or detail in favor of real punchiness.
