This new poster for Child 44 is a thing of brutal beauty.
Taken on its own, the poster is sharp enough, but it's even more impressive when you consider that the film stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke, Dev Patel, Paddy Considine and Vincent Cassel. How many of them made the poster? Not one. That's bold.
Hey bubs, ready for potentially big news about how the elder statesmen of X-Men figure into the future of the expanding franchise?
Since X-Men: Days of Future Past effectively reset the tangled timeline, we've been thinking that neither Patrick Stewart nor Ian McKellen would appear in an X-movie for a while, having gracefully handed their characters over to James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.
Turns out the older versions of Professor X and Magneto aren't done yet, but we won't see them together again. It's not official, but Magneto's said to be returning for next year's X-Men: Apocalypse, while Xavier will play a big part in the next Wolverine alongside Hugh Jackman.
But now Spider-Man is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the cross-studio collaboration means Marvel is rejiggering its Phase 3 schedule in order to make room for Spidey's solo movie.
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is heading right where he belongs, into the MCU, where he'll get up to derring-do alongside Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Yes, the day for which Spider-Fans have long pined has actually, really arrived: Sony announced tonight that the wallcrawler is set to appear in an as-yet unspecified Marvel Studios movie before starring in a new, Marvel-produced solo movie set for July 28, 2017.
English actor Joe Anderson is best known for his work in such films as Control, Across the Universe, The Crazies, The Grey, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, A Single Shot, Horns, and Hercules. He can now be seen in the acclaimed new drama Supremacy, which was directed by first time filmmaker Deon Taylor.
Supremacy is based on a true story and revolves around a recently paroled white supremacist named Garrett Tully (Anderson). After Tully and his girlfriend (Julie Benz) kill a cop, they take an African American family hostage. Mr. Walker (Danny Glover), the patriarch of the family and an ex-con himself, must now rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family. In addition to Anderson, Benz, and Glover, the film also stars Derek Luke (Captain America: The First Avenger), Lela Rochon (Any Given Sunday), and Anson Mount (Non-Stop).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Joe Anderson about his work on Supremacy. The talented actor discussed his new film, how he got involved with the project, his character as it was originally written in the script, the true story the film is based on, working with Danny Glover, the relationship between Tully and Mr. Walker, and what he hopes audiences will take away from the film.
Fifty Shades of Grey is already the fastest-selling R-rated movie in Fandango's history. It's poised to set Presidents Day weekend records, maybe making north of $85 million at the box office.
Even if audiences stop turning up after this weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey is basically a hit already, tracking strongly not just with fans of the novel, but also with lots of women who've never bit their lips whilst reading the sadomachistic bestseller.
Is it even faintly surprising to hear that sequels are an absolute certainty at this point?
All right, head to the kitchen and grab the biggest grain of salt you can find, because there's a humdinger of a Marvel rumor making the rounds.
The rumor: Marvel Studios is talking to Angelina Jolie about directing Captain Marvel, offering her a queen's ransom to helm the studio's first female-driven superhero movie.
If you were watching The Walking Dead last night, then you saw some TV spots for Chappie, next month's bit of original scifi from District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp.
If you missed the show, though, don't worry, because we've got three commercials for Chappie right here, along with the official one sheet.
At this point, the race for Best Picture at the Oscars this month is basically a knife-fight between Boyhood and Birdman.
Richard Linklater's drama sharpened its blade, virtually shutting out Birdman at the BAFTA Awards this weekend.
