Guess how many new images from Fantastic Four just debuted?
If you guessed four, then you're absolutely right. A quartet of stills from the reboot show off the new look of Marvel's First Family, featuring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and kate Mara in full FF regalia as Reed Richards, Johnny Storm, and Sue Storm, as well as Jamie Bell pre-Thingening.
D.C. Pierson's The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To is a really fun read, and if this proof of concept short is anything to go by, it could make an ever better movie.
You know Pierson, even if you don't know that you know Pierson. He's a member of DERRICK Comedy, the internet sketch comedy group behind 2009's underseen Mystery Team, in which Pierson, Donald 'Childish Gambino' Glover, and Dominic Dierkes starred as a trio of kid detectives reluctantly maturing into manhood. He appeared briefly but memorably as an Apple Store employee in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The official synopsis for this year's Rocky spinoff Creed reveals that Michael B. Jordan's character is named Adonis Johnson.
That's a great, great boxing name, one that stands tall among Rocky franchise monikers like Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago, and Mason "The Line" Dixon. It's just one detail in a surprisingly thorough synopsis that implies Sylvester Stallone's famous pugilist is fighting his most formidable opponent ever: Cancer.
Captain America may have been the belle of the ball on the Avengers: Age of Ultron one-sheet, but the first character poster for the huge Marvel sequel goes the resident rockstar of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Robert Downey Jr. just debuted a slick character poster showing off Tony Stark's latest armor and his sharper-than-ever facial hair. What's more, but the Armored Avenger has promised a big, big Marvel announcement next week.
One last Insurgent trailer, one last chance to wonder just what the hell is happening in the Divergent sequel.
A sneak peek trailer for Frozen Fever has arrived, offering up a first listen of the new song that will join "Let It Go" and "For the First Time in Forever" on every parents' endlessly looped Frozen playlist.
How about two bits of casting that are totally unrelated beyond involving extremely good-looking people taking supporting roles in high profile 2016 sequels?
Jessica Chastain is now part of The Huntsman, a sort-of spinoff of Snow White and the Huntsman, while Ben Hardy has joined X-Men: Apocalypse in a mysterious role that's likely to be Angel.
You've probably read thinkpieces asking "Are there too many superhero movies these days?" Maybe you've even wondered if spandex-wearing neon gods are taking over cinema as we know it.
Never mind that there were only four theatrical superhero movies in 2014. Four. This year, there are only three.
Maybe it's just because superheroes have taken over the
popular culture, but a lot of folks have a strange, sky-is-falling
attitude about these movies, one usually defined by a distaste – if not outright disdain – for comic book derring-do. Best Picture winner Birdman treats comic book fare like a cinematic scourge, and during awards season, plenty of folks seemed to be looking down their noses at superpowered characters.
Nightcrawler writer-director Dan Gilroy typified this attitude while accepting his totally-deserved Best First Feature trophy at the Independent Spirit Awards over the weekend when he told the crowd (which included some at least a few nominees who, you know, play superheroes), "Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry."
James Gunn, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy, has addressed both Gilroy's comments and the mindset behind them with a thoughtful response.
A crop of photographic Spectre goodies have arrived online, showing Daniel Craig in full 007 mode and James Bond's new Aston Martin facing off against a supercar on the streets of Rome.
