POSTERS REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF SUMMIT. Starring Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Nonso Anozie, Aramis Knight, Han Soto and Moises Arias, writer/director Gavin Hood’s ’Ender’s Game’ will arrive in cinemas on November 1st. The synopsis for the film is as follows.
In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.
Robert Shane has put together this top-notch “Star Wars meets Marvel – Mace Fury” piece. Robert’s description for the artwork is as follows: “Samuel L Jackson has been great in pretty much every movie I’ve seen him in. He also happens to play key characters in both the Star Wars and Marvel movie universes – so here’s a quick concept idea for a mash-up between his ‘Nick Fury’ from Marvel’s Avengers and ‘Mace Windu’ from Star Wars. I call him… Mace Fury!!!”
“(I’m not sure if Mace Fury sounds cool, or if it sounds more like some kind of personal attack protection product!?) I haven’t drawn Mr Jackson before – so I’m pleased with how his likeness came out. I’ve adapted elements from both characters for the costume and tried to combine them into a believable look. I’m not sure why anyone with Jedi powers and a lightsaber might need a pistol – but I thought I’d add one – just in case ‘Mace Fury’ also likes to take out his enemies at long range too.”
In its third weekend of release, ‘Man of Steel’ has flown by the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office with an estimated $520,360,000 million after just 17 days. The Superman reboot has earned $248,660,000 million in North America and $271,700,000 million internationally. “Zack Snyder, along with his cast and fellow filmmakers, created a story that has connected with audiences of all ages and in every quadrant of the world,” said Sue Kroll, Warner Bros. Pictures President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution. “We are so proud of the film, which has brought a new vision of the man and the myth to those just discovering Superman, as well as lifelong fans.”
Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman, stated, “This success for ‘Man of Steel’ is a great 75(th) birthday present for this iconic character. The film took Superman back to his roots for a new generation of moviegoers, who have once again embraced Krypton and Kansas’ favorite son. The film’s strong Cinemascore tells us that word of mouth should keep the ‘Man of Steel’ flying through the summer.”
It’s Gipsy Danger vs. Otachi in these new posters for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming action-adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ Set for a July 12th 2D and 3D release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat. Undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, ‘Pacific Rim’ boasts a stellar cast of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rob Kazinsky, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Max Martini.
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the sci-fi action adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim.” When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are synched via a neural bridge, called “The Drift.” But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
Universal Pictures has unveiled this first TV spot for Ron Howard’s Formula One racing drama, ‘Rush.’ Set for a September 13th release in the UK and September 20th bow in the US, the film centers on the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda and British driver James Hunt. ‘Inglorious Basterds’ star Daniel Brühl is playing Lauda with Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of Hunt. The likes of Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) co-star. Helmed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard, the script for ‘Rush’ is by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
Adan Canto may have confirmed his role as Sunspot/Roberto ”Bobby” da Costa in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ In response to a tweet from a fan saying, “I’m excited for @adancanto as Sunspot!!”, Canto replied: “Thanks! Next summer.” The tweet has since been removed. Canto, who’s best known for his role on ‘The Following’ drama series, previously replied on his Twitter account to a fan about his role in the film, “….I might turn into a ball of fire if someone pisses me off”, seemingly pointing towards Sunspot, or perhaps an alteration of Japanese mutant Shiro Yoshida/Sunfire. X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series, commenced filming in March in Montreal, Canada. It will be the first film in the ‘X-Men’ film series to be filmed in 3D.
