Focus Features has unveiled this first trailer and new batch of images from ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ The erotic drama stars with Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the duo at the center of the story. Marcia Gay Harden, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Victor Rasuk, Callum Keith Rennie, Jennifer Ehle and Max Martini also star in the adaptation of the EL James novel. ’Fifty Shades of Grey’ opens on Valentine’s Day 2015.
Legendary Pictures has debuted the logo for Duncan Jones’ ‘Warcraft,’ which is based on Blizzard Entertainment’s award-winning ‘World of Warcraft’ universe. Starring the likes of Toby Kebbell, Paula Patton, Travis Fimmel, Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, and Clancy Brown, ‘Warcraft’ is penciled in for a March 11th, 2016 release date. The ‘Warcraft’ script was written by Charles Leavitt and rewritten by Jones. ’World of Warcraft,’ one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games out there, is part fantasy, part science fiction and — depending on the game you’re playing — includes elements such as dragons and orcs, zombies and werewolves, and aliens and spaceships.
If it wasn’t already obvious… Marvel Studios aren’t playing around. Less than a week ago the studio announced five new release dates for upcoming films in their Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking us all the way to 2019. As of yesterday, publicly their upcoming slate was: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in the coming weeks, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ on May 1st, 2015, ‘Ant-Man’ on July 17th, 2015, a third ‘Captain America’ film on May 6th, 2016, and two mystery films set for July 8th, 2016 and May 5th, 2017. Last week they penciled in five further release dates: July 28th, 2017, November 3rd, 2017, July 6th, 2018, November 2nd, 2018 and May 3rd, 2019. Today, they have announced that May 4th, 2018 will see another entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
At this moment in time there’s no word on what characters these movies will focus on. That said, it’s almost certain a ‘Doctor Strange’ movie and a third ‘Thor’ movie, which is in development, will be in the mix. It was recently revealed that ‘Sinister’ and ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’ helmer Scott Derrickson is set to direct the ‘Doctor Strange’ film, which I’m guessing will take the July 7th, 2016 release date. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more details about Marvel’s upcoming slate at Comic-Con this weekend.
Along with the ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ concept art posters, Marvel Studios has released new Comic-Con concept art for ‘Ant-Man.’ Originally written by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd will lead ‘Ant-Man’ as Hank Pym and Scott Lang, respectively. Michael Pena is pegged to be playing a villain in the film, while Evangeline Lilly is also said to be playing a leading role in the film. Patrick Wilson and Corey Stoll also star. To be directed by Peyton Reed, ‘Ant-Man’ opens on June 17th, 2015.
