A second trailer for Her promises a a visually unique drama that's even more singular in its content, a movie that actually has something to say about how we connect and what it means to love.
Spike Jonze's latest feature explores these notions through a sad sack of a man who falls head over heels in love with his operating system.
Synopsis: Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.
Next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the most S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy of Marvel's Phase 2 movies.
Since S.H.I.E.L.D. has so frequently served as the connective tissue of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans are expecting that some of the sequel's new players – like, say, Anthony Mackie's the Falcon or Frank Grillo's Crossbones – might stick around for future adventures.
Grillo himself is suggesting that this may very well be the case for Crossbones aka Brock Rumlow.
For months now, just who will play superpowered siblings Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron has been pretty much a foregone conclusion.
But actors in talks don't always become the actors who play the parts, so Marvel Studios has officially announced that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are set to appear in the Avengers sequel.
Two of what are guaranteed to be the biggest comic book movies of the next two summers, X-Men: Days of Future Past and Avengers: Age of Ultron, will feature different takes on the same character.
Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige – he of the ever-present baseball cap and the teasingly coy non-answer – is talking about this strange tale of two Quicksilvers.
Synopsis: After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
Next year, the star-spangled Avenger is returning to theaters.
And we've got a good feeling about Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
When last we saw Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, he was leading the titular superteam and enjoying some shawarma in The Avengers. That summer blockbuster marked the commercial peak (so far) of the roll Marvel Studios has been on for the past several years. Phase 2 of that roll kicked off in fine fashion this year with Iron Man 3, and continues in mere weeks with Thor: The Dark World.
But we're looking ahead to April 2014, when Cap tosses his signature shield on his first solo outing since Captain America: The First Avenger. Unlike that two-fisted World War II adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier brings Rogers into a recognizably modern world, a more cynical setting in which he confronts sinister conspiracies, untrustworthy characters, and a familiar figure with a bone to pick.
Marvel Studios unveiled the first Winter Soldier teaser trailer just this morning. By now, you've probably laid eyes on the trailer, but if not, click right here.
We've long heard that this sequel is a comic book movie riff on the conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s. The trailer shows just that, combining event movie spectacle and shadowy goings-on. Basically, Captain America: The Winter Soldier looks fantastic. So much so we here at IAR wanted to share just a few of the reasons that we're properly excited for the sequel after viewing the first trailer.
The leader of Earth's Mightiest Heroes is returning for his first adventure since The Avengers.
Marvel Studios has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While Cap can't call on any gods of thunder or iron men, he's far from on his own, thanks to Black Widow, Nick Fury, and more. Still, sinister things are clearly afoot at S.H.I.E.L.D., and the man out of time will have to adjust quickly before a ghost from his past consumes him.
Mr. Rogers (not this one) goes to Washington.
With Thor: The Dark World just a few weeks from hitting theaters, Marvel Studios is starting the hype-ball rolling on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, unveiling a new theatrical poster for the star-spangled Avenger's next solo adventure.
With Thor: The Dark World hitting in about a month and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airing on ABC, Phase 2 of the Marvel Studios master plan is underway. Next April, the cinematic Marvel universe is going to welcome a whole bunch of new characters via Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
One of the characters that fans are psyched about is Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon. Anthony Mackie has offered some insight on the role and his future in the Marvel movies, clarifying in no uncertain terms that though the Falcon is a supporting hero in the sequel, he is definitely not the Robin to Cap's Batman.
