Listen, you don't want to fight Wolverine no matter what he's wearing, but a new picture from behind the scenes of The Wolverine shows Hugh Jackman in his most dangerous state.
This week, the first official one sheet for 300: Rise of an Empire offers visual proof of that assertion. Visually, this could very well be a poster for Zack Snyder's 2007 success, as a ridiculously fit man in a cool helmet, cape, and leather diaper strikes a pose in Frank Miller-style rain.
The first look at this summer's 300 sorta-sequel 300: Rise of an Empire has arrived in the form of two images showing the new lead and some more almost naked men presented in painterly fashion.
And director Noam Murro is also explaining just how his movie is related to and differs from Zack Snyder's 2007 actioner.
It's two The Wolverine trailers for the price of one.
20th Century Fox has finally revealed a first theatrical trailer for Hugh Jackman's next solo adventure as his signature character. But instead of just dropping the trailer for American audiences, Fox dropped both a domestic and an international trailer that are different enough to make watching both worthwhile.
It's been eight years since Sin City set a new standard for fidelity to source material in a comic book adaptation, essentially using Frank Miller's Dark Horse comic as storyboards. Since then, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Miller have promised a sequel. For years, that sequel looked like a pipe dream.
But Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently scheduled to hit theaters in 2D and 3D on October 4th.
When the follow-up finally came together last year, Rosario Dawson was one of the first Sin City actors to enthusiastically announce her renewed participation. Now that she has completed her work on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dawson is talking exclusively to IAR about playing Gail again after such a long break, promising that the return to Basin City will be "incredible."
No, the headline "Hugh Jackman Chops Wood" is not some sort sexual euphemism. But it almost is.
Director James Mangold has shared a new behind the scenes image from this summer's solo X-adventure The Wolverine, and it features Jackman, who's playing Logan for the sixth time, as the title character using his adamantium toothpicks to actually chop wood.
I'd like to imagine that the sourpuss on Hugh Jackman's mutton-chopped face in an all new still from The Wolverine is Logan's response to all the hype surrounding X-Men: Days of Future Past. It's like Logan's responding to Bryan Singer's expert early hyping, thinking to himself, "Stuff your time travel and sentinels where the sun don't shine. Adamantium's all you need, bub."
Ever since Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller ended years of quixotic promises by actually getting Sin City: A Dame to Kill For underway, almost all the news we've heard from the next collection of Basin City stories have concerned casting.
Not this time, Dear Rogues. Co-director Rodriguez has revealed a first look at the Sin City prequel, a pair of before and after images showing Josh Brolin as Dwight McCarthy, a character who ends up looking a lot like Clive Owen.
Actress Jessica Alba is best known for playing heroes in such films as Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, and Machete, as well as the TV series Dark Angel. But she can soon be seen playing a villain for the first time in the new 3D computer animated family film Escape from Planet Earth, which opens in theaters on February 15th.
In the film, Astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) finds himself caught in a trap when he responds to an SOS from a notoriously dangerous alien planet called … Earth. When his straight-laced brother Gary (Rob Corddry), the head of their planet’s mission control, wants to launch a mission to save Scorch, their boss, the no-nonsense Lena (Alba) tries to stop him. Gary then begins a secret mission, along with the help of his family, to save his brother from Earth’s evil General Shanker (William Shatner). However, things are not as they seem, and Lena has been secretly helping Shanker, who she is desperately in love with. In addition to Alba, Fraser, Corddry, and Shatner, the film boasts an incredible cast of voice talent including Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City: The Movie), Ricky Gervais (TV’s An Idiot Abroad), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine), Sofia Vergara (The Three Stooges), Jane Lynch (Wreck-It Ralph), and George Lopez (Rio).
I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Jessica Alba to discuss her work on Escape from Planet Earth, as well as two of her highly anticipated upcoming films – the Robert Rodriguez directed sequels – Machete Kills, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The beautiful actress discussed her new animated movie, why she wanted to make it, how her daughter reacted to seeing the film, playing a villain, poking fun at her own image, working with director Cal Bunker, voice acting, reuniting with Robert Rodriguez on the upcoming sequels, her role in Machete Kills, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Rodriguez and comic book legend Frank Miller’s relationship, Nancy’s larger arc in the new film, and having scenes with both Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke.
Available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning January 29th is the latest DC Universe Animated Original Movie called Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 2, which is the conclusion to last fall's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 1 and is based on the seminal graphic novel from author Frank Miller (The Spirit). The movie features an incredible cast of voice actors including Peter Weller (RoboCop) as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Ariel Winter (ABC's Modern Family) as Carrie Kelly/Robin, Michael Emerson (ABC's Lost) as Joker, Mark Valley (Zero Dark Thirty) as Clark Kent/Superman, David Selby (The Social Network) as Commissioner James "Jim" Gordon, Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper, and Robin Atkins Downes (Superman vs. The Elite) as Oliver Queen.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a chance to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 2 at the Paley Center for Media and spoke with executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), casting director Andrea Romano (Batman: Under the Red Hood), and legendary veteran actor Peter Weller about their contributions to the film. Timm discussed the new movie, the daunting tack of adapting Frank Miller's classic graphic novel, how Mark Valley got into the role of Superman, why Timm has wanted Peter Weller to play Batman since he first saw Robocop, and the classic showdown between Superman and Batman, while Romano talked about casting Valley, and why Michael Emerson was the perfect actor to play the iconic role of Joker, and finally, Weller discussed preparing to play the caped crusader, and the film's "morality play with ethics at stake."
