Paramount Pictures has just unleashed this new “Snow Chase” clip from ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ providing us with an extended look at a scene showcased in the trailer. Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) is directing the live-action CG hybrid take on the classic 1980s characters which first debuted in an indie comic before going on to become a massively popular cartoon and merchandising line. ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is set for a August 8th in the US and October 17th in the UK.
28 New ‘Hercules’ Images Featuring Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Irina Shayk, Rebecca Ferguson & More
Paramount Pictures has set loose this huge batch of images from the Dwayne Johnson-led ‘Hercules.’ Directed by Brett Ratner, ‘Hercules’ will be distributed worldwide on July 25th and co-stars the likes of Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Irina Shayk, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Aksel Hennie, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal and Reece Ritchie. Based on the graphic novel “Hercules: The Thracian Wars,” the film is a revisionist take on the classic myth.
Dwayne Johnson stars as Hercules, who was born with the strength of a god yet feels the suffering of a human. Notorious for his larger-than-life exploits, including the world-famous “12 Labors” – the most harrowing tasks in all of ancient Greece – but haunted by his past, he has become a wandering mercenary, cashing in on his legend with a brash group of loyal followers. But now, as he undertakes a bold campaign to end the bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his throne, he will be pushed to his own incredible limits.
Last month Colin Firth revealed that he will no longer voice the title character in the family adventure ‘Paddington,’ which is based on the beloved fictional character from children’s literature created by Michael Bond in 1958. “After a period of denial, we’ve chosen ‘conscious uncoupling,’” The King’s Speech Oscar-winner said in a statement. Firth said the decision to leave Paddington was a mutual one. “It’s been bittersweet to see this delightful creature take shape and come to the sad realization that he simply doesn’t have my voice. I’ve had the joy of seeing most of the film and it’s going to be quite wonderful. I still feel rather protective of this bear and I’m pestering them all with suggestions for finding a voice worthy of him.”
Today we hear that Ben Whishaw has replaced Colin Firth as the titular bear, giving the character a younger voice. Producer David Heyman and director Paul King told the DM that Colin sensed early on, before they did, he wasn’t right for the role. “He was saying: “Are you sure I’m right?” He was way ahead of us,” Heyman admitted. “Colin was brilliant, but his voice was, ultimately, too mature.” Paddington, he says, is an optimistic bear with a sense of wonder. “What we needed was a slightly more open, and younger, voice.”
A24 send word that Kevin Smith’s ‘Tusk’ has been penciled in for a September 19th release date in the US. The offbeat horror 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. Sony International is handing distribution in the non-U.S. marketplace, so expect word on international release dates shortly.
Universal Pictures has set loose this latest red band clip from Luc Besson’s action-thriller, ‘Lucy.’ Scarlett Johansson stars as the title character, a young woman who is forced to become a drug mule and is subsequently transformed into an ass-kicking machine when a highly-specialized drug enters her system. As Lucy races against the clock to survive, her new abilities allow her to see into the future, move objects with her mind and disregard pain and other emotions.
‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’: Director Joss Whedon, Elizabeth Olsen & Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talk Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver & The Vision
With Comic-Con around the corner and hot on the heels of our first official looks at ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ new details have emerged about the hugely anticipated film via quotes from Joss Whedon, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly. Writer-director Whedon shed some light on the brother-sister duo of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson): “They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to. With the [first] Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody, and now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot [Ultron] who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it’s a darker, weirder, tougher world that they’re living in.”
