Captain America gets it

From the Black Widow no less. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is filming in Cleveland and they’re getting busted kind of a lot. It’s a good early predictor for how big a movie will be—what level is the set stalking at? There’s been a steady diet of set stalker photos coming from Cleveland—more than when The Avengers filmed there two years ago—so let’s say they’re at 7/10. Full Story

Snowpiercer finally has a trailer

There were two movies I was really looking forward to this year by a pair of South Korean directors getting some English-language work -- Stoker and Snowpiercer. Park Chan-wook’s Stoker turned out completely freaking amazing, and now we’re getting our first look at Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, which many had tipped for Cannes but was not ready in time for consideration. Full Story

Diana, Naomi, sob!

A teaser trailer for the upcoming Diana starring Naomi Watts has been released. It’s so obvious what they’re trying to do here. With the piano and the familiar imagery... And still... It works. Because we are SO familiar with that imagery. All it takes is a hairstyle. Or a dress. Full Story

World War Z review

I don’t know how else to put it -- it’s bad. It’s a mess. It’s barely functional as a piece of entertainment and not at all as a movie. I don’t even know where to start. I could write a thousand words on how it isn’t World War Z, and a thousand words on its narrative failures, and yet another thousand words on the sh*tty filmmaking. Full Story

Where are my dragons?

Remember how there was a Hobbit movie last winter (and despite making a billion dollars worldwide, didn’t it feel like no one saw it?), and how there are two more still to go? Well the first trailer—with Czech subtitles (???)—for part two, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has just been released. Full Story

Four and his hair

The first image of Theo James as Four in Divergent was released the other day. As you know, Veronica Roth’s series about Tris Prior has been my jam for a couple of years now, ever since I ripped through a copy of it while sunburning my ass in Barbados in 2011. Click here Full Story

Where’s GINA?!?!

But first...are these shots of Henry Cavill with Joey Fatone cracking you up too? What a random ass conversation. Even Amy Adams seems confused. Man Of Steel premiered last night in New York. Henry Cavill was there and wearing a pinky ring. Jesus Christ, is it an epidemic Full Story

If the objective of Man Of Steel was to introduce a new Superman... Done. Henry Cavill IS Superman. He is Clark Kent. And it totally makes sense now why Zack Snyder only screentested one person -- because there was no need for anyone else. Please, Joe Manganiello. Even Joe Manganiello would have to agree. Full Story

Marvel is wishlisting Saoirse Ronan

June 7, 2013 15:46:04 Posted at June 7, 2013 15:46:04

And why wouldn’t they? She’s talented and has carved out a niche playing tough but vulnerable kids, and she has proven action capabilities (see also: Hanna). A superhero role seems like the next natural step, right? But Marvel is going beyond just putting a name on a top ten list—they’re prototyping Full Story

The final trailer for Man Of Steel was released yesterday. The movie opens June 14. And it’s going to be huge. Maybe not Avengers/Iron Man 3 huge but really, really big. I saw Man Of Steel last weekend in advance of the junket. Reviews are embargoed until Monday. But I can tell you about my interview with Henry Cavill. Full Story

A preview for Runner, Runner, starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck, aired on Entertainment Tonight earlier this week. Click here for a refresher. The full first trailer was released yesterday. See if you can make it through the part where JT says, “What are you talking about?” without laughing. Full Story
