Paramount Pictures has let loose the first official clip from World War Z.
A new batch of official images from Pacific Rim is appropriately huge and varied, reflecting the hugeness and variety of Guillermo del Toro's upcoming event movie.
Here, we have for your visual enjoyment all manner of visual delights. We're talking stills of the human characters in their snazzy high tech outfits, detailed Jaeger concept art, good looks at two different species of Kaiju, and even behind the scenes images featuring del Toro, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, and del Toro's longtime cinematographer Guillermo Navarro.
The only non-sequel in Marvel Studios' Phase 2 already has a nicely eclectic cast, but Guardians of the Galaxy has added a humdinger.
Glenn Close is reportedly joining the film, which is intended to launch a science-fiction franchise, playing a crucial supporting role.
Disney, admiral of the blockbuster fleet, has promoted Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg from swabs to co-captains on Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
In 2010 Esquire magazine called filmmaker Alex Gibney “the most important documentarian of our time,” and I can’t find anything wrong with that statement.
Any documentary is only as good as the subject that is being documented and Gibney continually chooses fascinating subjects for his films. Some of his recent movies include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, Casino Jack and the United States of Money, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer, and Taxi to the Dark Side, which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Now, the award winning filmmaker is back with another topical and important documentary entitled We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, which is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles theaters, and will open nationwide in June.
The film takes a look at WikiLeaks, the organization started by Julian Assange and others who were involved in the collection and distribution of secret information and media by whistleblowers. The movie follows the founding of WikiLeaks in 2006 and examines several key events including their 2009-2010 leaks about the Icelandic financial collapse, Swiss banking tax evasion, Kenyan government corruption, and toxic-waste dumping, as well as United States Army soldier Bradley Manning’s communications with Adrian Lamo, uploads to WikiLeaks of the Iraq and Afghanistan war documents, exposure to the FBI by Lamo, and the accusations of sexual assault made against Assange.
I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney over lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles to discuss his work on We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, as well as his upcoming film Lance Armstrong: The Road Back. The Oscar-winning filmmaker discussed his new movie, why he decided to make a documentary about WikiLeaks, how his opinion of Assange changed throughout the course of making the movie, why the WikiLeaks founder refused to be interviewed for the film, Bradley Manning and the New York Times role in the story, what the future holds for Assange, and the current status of his upcoming documentary about disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.
Six character posters for This Is the End nicely set up the "famous actors playing comedic versions of themselves" element of the movie. Some fiery design and scared faces also establish, if the title hasn't, that the apocalypse is in play.
A restricted TV spot, meanwhile, provides several expletives – one delivered by Emma Watson, no less – and has Danny McBride offering the best explanation for This Is the End's mysterious apocalypse, as he says, "For all we know the fucking Lakers could've just won and that's reason why all this is happening."
The celestial music filling the mead halls of Asgard in this year's Thor: The Dark World will sound a bit different than expected, it seems.
Carter Burwell, long set to provide the score for the second movie in Marvel's much-ballyhooed Phase 2, has departed the project.
20th Century Fox has unveiled a second theatrical trailer for the sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
True to the title, this trailer does indeed feature a lot of water and many a monster. Truth in advertising.
Prepare to roll out, because the first promotional images from next summer's Transformers 4 show off two as-yet unidentified Autobot characters and the redesigned appearance of their fearless leader, Optimus Prime.
By characters, I of course mean cars. Don't go expecting to see weightless, clickety-clackety CGI robots. These are first looks at cars that will be used in Michael Bay's next round of incomprehensible action, casual misogyny, and product placement.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to involve mutants from two timelines getting into action-packed adventures. Which X-villain could possibly go up against two generations of X-Men?
The identity of the bad guy has been kept quiet, but if Bryan Singer's latest tweet isn't a bit of misdirection, it all but confirms as a sturdy rumor as to just who Peter Dinklage is playing in next summer's sequel.
