‘Captain America: The Winter Solider’ Featurette Focusing On Captain America & Black Widow’s Relationship
“Cap and Black Widow are very different people; it’s kind of like this odd pairing. She has very questionable morality and she makes a living lying, and Cap wouldn’t do it if he tried.” Centering on the dynamic between Captain America and Black Widow, ET have teamed up with Marvel to reveal this new behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ the sequel to 2011′s ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ and the ninth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directing the film is the team of Anthony and Joe Russo (Welcome to Collinwood) from a screenplay written by the ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America, along with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. In addition, film icon Robert Redford has joined the all-star cast as Agent Alexander Pierce, a senior leader within the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is set for release on April 4th in the US and March 28th in the UK.

Just over a week away from release, DreamWorks has revealed the latest in a long line of featurettes for the upcoming video game adaptation ‘Need for Speed.’ Directed by Scott Waugh and starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Michael Keaton, Dakota Johnson and Harrison Gilbertson, ‘Need for Speed’ is set for a March 14th release.
DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, “Need for Speed” captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.
Almost six months ago it was first reported that Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg - who starred opposite each other in 2009′s ‘Adventureland’ - were teaming up for ‘American Ultra,’ an action comedy from Nima Nourizadeh, the director of the hit comedy ’Project X.’ THR are now reporting that the pair are set to be joined by Uma Thurman in the film. Max Landis, who wrote the acclaimed sci-fi found-footage movie ‘Chronicle,’ penned the script for ’American Ultra.’
In the action comedy, Jesse Eisenberg will play an unmotivated stoner named Mike, who lives with his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) in a small, sleepy town. One night, their lives take an unexpected turn when Mike’s past comes back to haunt him, and he becomes the target of a government operation set to wipe him out. If her deal makes, Uma Thurman will play a government worker who spearheaded a secret program to create “sleeper warriors”. ’American Ultra’ is planning a mid April start date. Thurman next stars in Lars von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac.’
After playing Nelson Mandela, a Kaiju fighting commanding officer, a drug lord/aspiring businessman, an all-seeing, all-hearing Asgardian sentry, and a possessive Detective, it looks as if Idris Elba will soon voice a killer tiger, as he’s said to be nearing a deal to play Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s ‘The Jungle Book.’ The news comes courtesy of The Wrap. The Golden Globe winner also has ’Beasts of No Nation,’ ‘Alive Alone,’ ‘The Gunman,’ ‘No Good Deed,’ ‘Bastille Day,’ ‘Second Coming’ and a ‘Luther’ movie on the horizon.
‘The Jungle Book’ is penciled in for an October 9th, 2015 release. Jon Favreau will direct the new adaptation of the classic 1894 Rudyard Kipling novel. Favreau – who wrote, directed, produced and stars in the upcoming indie ‘Chef’ – has a strong history with Disney, and this will put him back into the event film game. He helmed the first two ‘Iron Man’ films and had been attached to direct ‘Magic Kingdom,’ the film where the theme park comes to life. Disney previously turned ‘The Jungle Book’ into the classic 1967 animated film and a 1994 live-action feature helmed by Stephen Sommers.
