Ahead of the teaser trailer debut next Wednesday at 6am PST/9am EST/2pm GMT, Twentieth Century Fox has unveiled this new poster for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,’ which is released in cinemas on July 11th, 2014. Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in the last film, reprises his role as Caesar in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.’ The Matt Reeves-directed sequel also stars Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo, Jocko Sims, and Judy Greer. ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ opened theatrically during the summer of 2011, grossing nearly half a billion dollars worldwide. UPDATE: three more posters added.
The brief synopsis for ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is as follows: “A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”
James McAvoy Talks ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, Reacts To ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ & Confirms He’ll Play Xavier Again
Last week, seemingly out of nowhere, director Bryan Singer announced the upcoming sequel to ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ titled ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ Additionally, he also revealed we’ll be seeing it on the big screen on May 27th, 2016. The character Apocalypse, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, made his debut in X-Factor #6. The world’s first mutant, En Sabah Nur was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC and used advanced technology to make himself an eternal conqueror, believing wholeheartedly in survival of the fittest.
At the British Independent Film Awards for ‘Filth,’ James McAvoy discussed ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ and also revealed that the “Apocalypse” announcement came out of nowhere for him too. “I only heard about it this morning!” McAvoy said in an interview with Red Carpet News TV. And while he didn’t confirm a return for the film, he did say that he’s contracted for a third appearance as Charles Xavier.
Following the tragic death of Paul Walker on November 30th, Universal Pictures issued the following statement on the status of ‘Fast & Furious 7.’ “Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise. We are committed to keeping Fast & Furious fans informed, and we will provide further information to them when we have it. Until then, we know they join us in mourning the passing of our dear friend Paul Walker.”
Today The Hollywood Reporter bring word that Universal Pictures executives are trying to find a way to salvage footage already shot for ‘Fast & Furious 7′ instead of starting fresh. Sources say writer Chris Morgan now is at work crafting revisions to the script that Universal execs hope can retire Walker’s character from the series using scenes already shot. If he succeeds, cast and crew could be called back to work by late January – but that’s a big if. According to a knowledgeable source for the outlet, the studio already has poured about $150 million into the film, a bill that its insurance firm, Fireman’s Fund, might have to pay in full if Universal concludes the picture must be started anew.
‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all – a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself – the Dragon Smaug.
Ian McKellen returns as Gandalf the Grey, with Martin Freeman in the central role of Bilbo Baggins, and Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. The international ensemble cast is led by Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Ken Stott, James Nesbitt, and Orlando Bloom as Legolas. The film also stars (in alphabetical order) John Bell, Manu Bennett, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Lawrence Makoare, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, Mikael Persbrandt, and Aidan Turner. ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ arrives in cinemas on December 13th while ’The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ concludes the trilogy on December 17th, 2014.
When we meet Bilbo in this second movie, he’s a lot more experienced – yet we still see his innocence there. How is that to play?
Martin Freeman: I really like Bilbo’s innocence, and I like playing the change from innocence to experience. I like that. So that he has a figurative journey, as well as the literal one as he goes on. Every actor wants to play different things or beats within a moment, or beats within a scene. You don’t want to be playing the same thing all of the time, and you certainly get that aspect of Bilbo, definitely in the second film. There’s a person there with more iron in his backbone, I guess. He’s just seen more, so his whole worldview has shifted.
A24 and Demarest Films have announced that they’ve teamed up on Kevin Smith’s latest film, ‘Tusk,’ and have plans to bring the original, offbeat horror project to theaters in the third quarter of 2014. ‘Tusk’ follows Wallace (Justin Long) a journalist on a mission. He finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Michael Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses. Also starring Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment, ‘Tusk’ was born out of one of Kevin Smith’s SModcasts. Currently in production, the modern-day monster movie was also written by Smith.
Hot on the heels of the film’s first official trailer, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures has set loose this new poster for ‘Godzilla.’ Described as an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic ‘Godzilla,’ the adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
