After filling William Shatner's boots as Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams's rebooted Star Trek, Chris Pine is taking over another familiar hero, but this time he's staying terrestrial. Paramount Pictures has unveiled a first look image of Pine in action as the title character in Jack Ryan, and lest you think Ryan was always an upstanding CIA analyst, here he's riding a Ducati...without a helmet.
Two weeks ago, the first theatrical trailer for Seven Psychopaths did a pretty good job of conveying the odd, beautiful mixture of character, dark humor, and violence that characterizes the work of writer-director Martin McDonagh. Today, a new red band trailer has arrived online to communicate one element of the film that a green band simply couldn't get across.
Labor Day marks the unofficial end to summer, and it looks like Marvel Studios and Disney are looking to bookend the summer of 2012 with some hot and heavy The Avengers action. Joss Whedon's mega-movie kicked off summer with the biggest domestic opening in movie history, and now it will close out the season by expanding back a whole lot more theaters nationwide for the Labor Day weekend.
Innumerable action movies have taught us that you do not, under any circumstances, attempt to make a move against Bruce Willis. It's a lesson that Joseph Gordon-Levitt learns the hard in the newly-released first clip from Looper, writer-director Rian Johnson's first foray into science-fiction.
The first installment made it abundantly clear what audiences want from a Taken movie: Oscar-caliber thespian Liam Neeson ruthlessly beating the shit out of anyone and everyone who stands in his path. That's the key ingredient folks will be expecting when they show up for Taken 2 this October. A new batch of images from the sequel promise that Neeson will indeed be running around, shooting guns, and snapping necks this Fall.
Here at IAR, we haven't said too much about the casting of the RoboCop remake, partially because there's been so much of it, but mostly because the notion of a RoboCop is something we're still having trouble getting out heads around. In this case, though, we're making an exception. Why? Because the newest addition to the cast is a proven source of onscreen excellence: Michael Keaton.
Every bit of promotional material from next summer's huge monster movie Pacific Rim should be accompanied by an audio message from director Guillermo del Toro. Today, we have four new images, two behind the scenes and two more standard stills, and don't get me wrong, they're good-looking images showing futuristic costumes, impeccable production design, and oh-so many pretty colors. But del Toro's entertaining and gregarious enough to sell Pacific Rim all on his own, and his voice in your ears is like sweet, sweet honey.
The To Do List, formerly and improbably titled The Hand Job, has debuted its very first trailer, which also doubles as an announcement of the comedy's February 14, 2013 release date.
On the off chance that you might be thinking a movie that was originally called The Hand Job might be a light and fuzzy Valentine's Day romantic comedy, however, this The To Do List trailer's red band advises that the film is rated R on account of "persuasive [sic?] strong crude and sexual content including graphic dialogue, drug and alcohol use and language – all involving teens."
Potentially massive conflict of interest news now: Sony Pictures may very well developing a movie based around the ongoing videogame console wars, which have claimed the lives of innumerable n00bs and even teh hardcorez, while emptying many piggy banks over the years.
Marvel Studios and Disney are continuing in their bold, ambitious quest to reveal seemingly every special feature of interest from The Avengers Blu-ray and DVD free of charge a month before the movie's street date. The latest bit of ancillary goodness from Joss Whedon's ridiculously successful superhero team-up is a deleted scene that would've fit in early in the film, re-introducing Steve Rogers after his decades on ice.
