The highest-grossing action heroine in movie history (not adjusted for inflation) struts her stuff in some new official images from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I.
The new Fury poster puts Sgt. Wardaddy on front street, but it also gives some room to the four men who crew his Sherman Tank, the titular Fury.
Brad Pitt stars as Wardaddy, the patriarch of a makeshift little family, one that has fought together in Fury's belly throughout World War II.
His crew is played by ringers Michael Pena (End of Watch, Ant-Man), Jon Bernthal (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Walking Dead), and Shia LaBeouf (Nymphomaniac, Transformers), with Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Three Musketeers) as the green new recruit taking over for Fury's recently-deceased gunner.
Roger Deakins is one of the best cinematographers out there, and his masterful work was a huge part of what made Skyfall sing, but he's not returning for the as-yet untitled Bond 24.
With production kicking off later this year to meet a late 2015 release date, Sam Mendes needed to find a new shooter to give 007's next adventure some slick visuals.
And apparently he's found one, reportedly recruiting Hoyte van Hoytema to act as director of photography on Bond 24.
The Sorcerer Supreme has a date with destiny: Doctor Strange makes his big screen debut in a theater near you on July 8, 2016.
Former Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens has not one but two major movies opening this week!
The first is the new thriller The Guest from You’re Next writer Simon Barrett and director Adam Wingard. The film, which opens in theaters on September 17th, follows a soldier named David (Stevens) that introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence. The Guest also stars Sheila Kelley (Matchstick Men), Leland Orser (Morning), and Lance Reddick (Oldboy).
The second is the new crime drama A Walk Among the Tombstones, which opens in theaters on September 19th. The movie revolves around private investigator Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson), who is hired by a drug kingpin (Stevens) named Kenny Kristo to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife. A Walk Among the Tombstones was written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout). As if that is not enough, Stevens will be seen later this year playing the iconic role of Sir Lancelot in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Dan Stevens about his work on The Guest, A Walk Among the Tombstones, and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. The talented English actor discussed The Guest, first reading the screenplay, its cinematic inspirations, his character, the filmmakers, Leland Orser, A Walk Among the Tombstones, director Scott Frank, Liam Neeson, having two films open in the same week, appearing in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tom, playing Sir Lancelot, and working with the sensational cast.
Everybody loves seeing a great actress playing a witch. Meryl Streep is, best as we can tell, pretty much the greatest actress out there.
So for the first Into the Woods poster, Disney doesn't really need to do anything other than show Meryl Streep as a witch.
That's just what Disney has done, dropping a poster for the musical that makes sure the first thing anybody thinks about when they think about Into the Woods is the three-time Academy Award winning actress as a crusty old crone.
Liam Neeson is far from your standard action hero. Most stars proudly declare their enthusiasm for dangerous derring-do and stunts.
"I don’t do my own stunts," Neeson says matter of factly. "But I do my own fighting and stuff."
He's not a typical Hollywood cinematic ass-kicker, but this Friday's A Walk Among the Tombstones gives Neeson ample opportunity for the fisticuffs he so enjoys. That said, the film, opening nationwide September 19th, isn't the type of movie that requires the actor to outrun fireballs or spend days on green screen sets.
A Walk Among the Tombstones has a sharper pedigree and weightier source material than such a movie. Written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout), the film marks the big screen debut of literary P.I. Matt Scudder, a hard-as-nails ex-NYPD cop who has solved mysteries and won fans in over seventeen bestselling novels by Lawrence Block.
A promising young director and an actor bound for mega-stardom are setting sail for Skull Island.
Legendary Pictures has enlisted Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct its big King Kong prequel, with Tom Hiddleston finally carrying an event movie of his own as the lead.
Guardians of the Galaxy is still raking in cash and converting new fans, but there's something even bigger on Marvel's horizon.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is mere months away. Marvel Studios is playing it cool promoting the sequel, and that's smart since it's the follow-up to the biggest movie ever not directed by James Cameron.
So we haven't seen a trailer for Joss Whedon's second superhero extravaganza, but the first official synopsis of the story promises that Avengers: Age of Ultron is jam-packed with comic book whiz-bang.
