Following yesterday’s unveiling of the Mark XVII armor, an “Artillery Level RT Suit” nicknamed “Heartbreaker”, and Mark XXXVIII armor, a “Heavy Lifting Suit” nicknamed “Igor” (the Hulkbuster), Marvel has now released these full body looks at “Heartbreaker” and “Igor”, two of the alternate armors Tony Stark has at his disposal in ‘Iron Man 3.’ In addition to these Mark XVII and Mark XXXVIII images, Marvel have also teased Tony Stark’s Mark XXXVIIII and Mark XXXV armors.

The film pits the brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds (The Mandarin; Ben Kingsley). When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ is a sweeping drama that powerfully explores the unbreakable bond between fathers and sons. Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a high-wire motorcycle stunt performer who travels with the carnival from town to town. While passing through Schenectady in upstate New York, he tries to reconnect with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), only to learn that she has given birth to their son Jason in his absence. Luke decides to give up life on the road to try and provide for his newfound family by taking a job as a car mechanic. Noticing Luke’s ambition and talents, his employer Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) proposes to partner with Luke in a string of spectacular bank robberies – which will place Luke on the radar of ambitious rookie cop Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Avery, who has to navigate a local police department ruled by the menacing and corrupt detective Deluca (Ray Liotta), is also struggling to balance his professional life with his family life, which includes his wife Jennifer (Rose Byrne) and their infant son AJ. The consequences of Avery’s confrontation with Luke will reverberate into the next generation, where their two sons must face their shared legacy. Co-written and directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ is out now. Mahershala Ali, Emory Cohen, Dane DeHaan, Gabe Fazio, Bruce Greenwood, and Harris Yulin also star. My interview with Eva Mendes for the film can be read here.
Was this story, ‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ something you had talked about with Derek Cianfrance on ‘Blue Valentine’?
Ryan Gosling: Yeah. When Derek and I were making ‘Blue Valentine’ I had shared with him a fantasy that I had about robbing banks, and how I thought there was a way to get away with it, and that if I wasnt so afraid of jail I might do it - but I guess that means I didn’t have a lot of confidence in my plan (laughs). And he said, “That’s crazy, I just wrote a script about that.” So it felt like it was meant to be. Both of us felt like it was our idea, but then we realised that this guy in Tel Aviv has been doing it for years – with great results (laughs).
After much anticipation, 20th Century Fox has set loose this first trailer for ‘The Wolverine.’ Alongside Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine, the film stars Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Brian Tee as Norubo Mori, Will Yun Lee as Kenuichio Harada/Silver Samurai, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper. Scheduled for release on July 26th, ‘The Wolverine’ is directed by James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, Knight and Day), while the script is by ‘The Usual Suspects’ scribe Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.
Describing ‘The Wolverine’ as a “Japanese noir picture with tentpole action in it”, director James Mangold recently said the film is set after the previous X-Men movies. ‘The Wolverine’ takes inspiration from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s Marvel miniseries from the 1980s dealing with the character’s adventures in Japan. There, samurai steel clashes with adamantium claws as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. The official synopsis for ‘The Wolverine’ can be read below the trailer. UPDATE: second trailer for the film added, featuring slightly different footage.
Simon (James McAvoy), a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a Goya painting worth millions of dollars, but after suffering a blow to the head during the heist he awakens to discover he has no memory of where he hid the painting. When physical threats and torture fail to produce answers, the gang’s leader Frank (Vincent Cassel) hires hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson) to delve into the darkest recesses of Simon’s psyche. As Elizabeth begins to unravel Simon’s broken subconscious, the lines between truth, suggestion, and deceit begin to blur. ‘Trance,’ directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and co-written by Oscar-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting), is set for a March 27th release in the UK and a April 5th release in the US. My interview with Danny Boyle for ‘Trance’ can be read here, my Rosario Dawson interview can be read here, and my James McAvoy can be found here.
What was it about ‘Trance’ that appealed to you? And can you remember your reaction to this story and your character when you first read the script?
Vincent Cassel: Honestly, the director is the first thing for me. Then just the fact that the script was so surprising, and the fact that reading it I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was surprised until the last page. It’s about trust and betrayal, and jealousy – and Danny Boyle was very exciting to me. It starts off as something normal, a heist movie, a classical sort of story, but then by the 25th page of the script it becomes something else. It’s a genre-bender and it really messes with you. But because it’s very precisely written you accept that and you go with it.
