Lucasfilm has revealed a rare bit of official information about Star Wars: Episode VII.
It's not a story synopsis or an official still. No, it's something altogether more fundamental: the title.
The first sequel in the new trilogy kicking off next year is now called Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
"Hey, you like fairy tales?" the full theatrical trailer for Into the Woods asks conspiratorially.
"You like musicals and big movie stars too? I got your fairy tales, musical numbers, and huge movie stars right here," it declares before whipping out all those things in promotion of Disney's all-star fantasy sing-along.
Maybe its just the Rolling Stones and the self-destructive behavior, but the first full theatrical trailer for The Gambler has a serious Scorsese vibe.
Okay, so Christian Bale decided he just isn't the man to play Steve Jobs in the A-list biography Sony is cooking up.
That leaves director Danny Boyle and the studio in the lurch, looking for an appropriately great, high profile actor to star as the late Apple co-founder.
It sounds like they might be going from Batman to Magneto: Michael Fassbender is reportedly "being eyed" to play Jobs in the as-yet untitled biopic.
The Hunger Games may be kaput after the Quarter Quell, but that doesn't mean Katniss and Peeta aren't still propaganda pawns.
A new clip from this month's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I has Katniss Everdeen discovering that Peeta Mellark is still alive. Unfortunately, she finds out in unpleasant fashion, as the baker's boy is now a puppet of President Snow.
After shaking the internet to its very firmament with its big Phase 3 announcements last week, Marvel Studios is now reminding everybody that there's plenty to be thrilled about before 2016.
Marvel has unveiled the first official footage from behind the scenes of next July's Ant-Man, the final movie in Phase 2, giving a first look at Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd in full-on hero mode as Scott Lang.
Olympus Has Fallen was built on a simple premise: Die Hard in the White House.
The sequel, which officially kicked off production, abandons the land of the free, the home of the brave, and even the Die Hard in a _____ premise. This time, Gerard Butler is going to be snapping necks across the pond in London Has Fallen.
Writer and director Dean DeBlois is the mastermind behind the extremely popular animated film franchise How to Train Your Dragon.
DeBlois began his career working on such animated projects as Mulan and Lilo & Stitch, but it was the Dragon series that put him on the map. ‘2010s How to Train Your Dragon earned almost $500 million at the box office and was nominated for two Academy Awards. Its sequel, How To Train Your Dragon 2 earned over $600 million at the box office and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning November 11th. DeBlois is currently writing the conclusion of his trilogy, How to Train Your Dragon 3, which is scheduled for release on June 9th, 2017.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 takes place several years after the events of the first film. When Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Hiccup also discovers his long lost mother Valka, voiced by Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett. In addition to Baruchel and Blanchett, the film also features the voice talents of Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen), Craig Ferguson (Brave), America Ferrera (Cesar Chavez), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (ParaNorman), T.J. Miller (Big Hero 6), Kristen Wiig (The Skeleton Twins), Kit Harrington (Pompeii), and Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with writer/director Dean DeBlois about his work on How to Train Your Dragon 2, as well as an update on How to Train Your Dragon 3. The accomplished filmmaker discussed his latest movie, making the sequel darker than the original, why the audience is growing with Hiccup, Toothless and Hiccup’s relationship, the fate of Hiccup’s father, casting Cate Blanchett as his mother, concluding Hiccup’s journey in How to Train Your Dragon 3, its dragon-centric story, and when DeBlois will be done writing it.
One last theatrical trailer for December's Annie reminds us of the comforts of musicals and remakes.
A few familiar musical numbers, some bubbly exuberance, an adorable little moppet in the title role, and a cast of ringers in supporting roles all contribute to the sense that Annie could be a big hit that brings the warm and fuzzy feelings this Christmas.
Chappie looks like Short Circuit meets District 9.
Sony Pictures has unveiled the very first teaser trailer for Neill Blomkamp's upcoming scifi movie, and in case that opening declaration didn't make it clear enough, Chappie looks pretty great.
