Universal Pictures kicked off a week of Fast & Furious 7 promotion over the weekend, with seven days of fast and/or furious festivities leading up to the premiere of the teaser trailer on Saturday, November 1st.
The first poster and banner for the anticipated sequel are eye-catching and also announce that the title is, in fact, Furious 7.
Bust out the planchette and start a séance, kids, because Ouija is the number one movie in North America.
Unsurprisingly, a horror movie took the top spot on the weekend before Halloween. The only new horror movie available was Ouija, so that's what people saw most, while no-bullshit actioner John Wick provided a no-frills alternative.
Ridley Scott's next movie, the Old Testament epic Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters December.
Around IAR HQ, however, we're excited about his next-next movie, The Martian, which keeps sounding better and better thanks to a cast that just keeps getting more and more impressive.
The latest additions are the Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who finally started getting the attention he deserves last year on account of his starring role in 12 Years a Slave.
Cap's former sidekick and the Oscar nominee join a supporting cast that already includes Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Michael Pena (Fury), Kristen Wiig (The Skeleton Twins), Sean Bean (HBO's Game of Thrones), Jeff Daniels (Dumb & Dumber To), Kate Mara (Netflix's House of Cards), Donald Glover (NBC's Community), Mackenzie Davis (That Awkward Moment).
This year's Gotham Award nominations position Boyhood as a favorite in the nascent awards season.
There's a lot of time left before the Academy Awards in February.
Most of this year's prestige pictures and Oscar-fodder have yet to be strategically released and promoted through huge behind the scenes awards campaigns, but already – even before the annual candy gorging of Halloween – we can hear the faint bugle call of awards season. In the coming months, the interminable song pomp, circumstance, and self-congratulation will grow louder and louder.
But for now, it's all just starting, as evidenced by the announcement of nominees for this year's Gotham Independent Film Awards.
Next year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Grateful Dead's formation in 1965.
To celebrate the occasion, one of the most influential bands of the 20th century is getting one hell of an anniversary present: a huge official documentary executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
Disney is priming the hype-pump for a deluge of Into the Woods promotion.
Earlier this week, a magazine cover revealed Johnny Depp in his supporting role as the Big Bad Wolf, now we've got a pretty detailed behind-the-scenes featurette that gives a first listen to some musical numbers in the Broadway adaptation.
That's not all, either, as a bumper crop of official images provide new looks at the ridiculously stacked cast that includes Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Christine Baranski, Tracey Ullman, Lucy Punch, Lilla Crawford, and Daniel Huttlestone.
When Warner Bros. backed up a dumptruck of DC movie plans onto the internet's front lawn last week, the studio announced a Wonder Woman solo movie for release between Suicide Squad and Justice League: Part One.
Yes, if all goes according to the studio's plan, the first ever live-action Wonder Woman movie will hit theaters on June 23, 2017.
Gal Gadot is already set to star as the Amazonian ass-kicker, but Wonder Woman is in need of a director, and Warner Bros. is looking to enlist a women to direct the biggest superheroine around.
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.
