Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled this latest poster for the much-anticipated ‘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.
The key cast for ‘Godzilla’ includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins and Bryan Cranston. This new take on the classic ‘Godzilla’ franchise is set to kick off the Summer movie-going season on May 16th. Gareth Edwards (Monsters) is directing the creature feature centered on the giant city-destroying and monster-fighting lizard. The filmmaker directs from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham.
From Total Film comes this UK quad poster for ‘The Raid 2.’ Once again penned and directed by Gareth Evans, ‘The Raid 2′ picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. In addition to Uwais, the cast includes Tio Pakusadewo, Putra Arifin Scheunamann, Julie Estelle, Alex Abbad and Roy Marten. ‘The Raid 2′ opens in the US on March 28th and in the UK on April 11th.
He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen – a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls – rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
‘The LEGO Movie’ & ’21 Jump Street’ Directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller Eyed To Helm ‘Ghostbusters 3′?
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who last helmed three gems in ‘The LEGO Movie,’ ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,’ have reportedly tipped to replace Ivan Reitman as directors on the long-in-development (yet-I-still-don’t-believe-we’ll-ever-see-it-on-the-big-screen) ‘Ghostbusters 3.’ The news comes courtesy of Deadline.com founder Nikki Finke, who Tweeted the following: “Hot duo to direct #Ghostbusters3? My sources say Phil Lord & Chris Miller (‘Lego Movie’, ’21 Jump St’) in talks to replace Ivan Reitman.”
Earlier this week Ivan Reitman, director of ‘Ghostbusters’ (1984) and ‘Ghostbusters II’ (1989), revealed that he’s vacated the directors chair on ‘Ghostbusters 3′ in the wake of Harold Ramis’s death last month. Reitman said: “It’s a version of Ghostbusters that has the originals in a very minor role… When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters.”
This new image has arrived online of Tom Hardy as the title character in Warner Bros. Pictures and George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ which is set for a 2D and 3D release on May 15th, 2015. The film also stars Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, Nicholas Hoult as Nux, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe, and Nathan Jones as Rictus Erectus. Collectively known as The Wives, Zoe Kravitz plays Toast, Riley Keough is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Splendid. They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are making their big screen debuts. Miller, who directed the previous three installments, returns to helm ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ Source: Reddit.
Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘Captain America: The Winter Solider,’ Scarlett Johansson gave IGN a few hints about what we can expect from Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow’s arc in Joss Whedon’s 2015 ‘Avengers’ sequel, ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’ “In Avengers 2 we go back…. we definitely learn more about Widow’s back-story even more, and get to find out how she became the person you see. All of these characters have deep, dark pasts. And I think in Avengers 2 maybe the past catches up to some of us a little bit.”
As we’ve seen with Black Widow’s appearances in the previous Marvel movies, she’s somewhat haunted by her past and tries to make amends with that one day at a time, or as she puts it, she has “red in her ledger” and would like to wipe it out. The cast list for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will also include Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, along with newcomers Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Thomas Kretschmann as Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, and James Spader as Ultron. It has been rumored that Paul Bettany will play The Vision in the film, although nothing has been confirmed by Marvel at this moment in time.
Variety are reporting that Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired all US and Canadian rights to Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People,’ which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to stellar reviews and a special jury award for breakthrough talent.
Starring Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Kyle Gallner, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Malcolm Barrett, Brittany Curran, Justin Dobies, Marque Richardson, Dennis Haysbert and Peter Syversten, ‘Dear White People’ follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.
