Closely following our first official look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf and Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood in ‘Into the Woods,’ additional imagery has hit the web for the film. Rob Marshall (Chicago) directs the musical fantasy film, which is based on the highly acclaimed Tony Award–winning eponymous Broadway musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim.

Well, this has been eventful. Less than 24 hours after it was announced that the first trailer for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will debut next Tuesday during ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ on ABC, the full teaser leaked online prematurely at around midnight UK time, and soon became the #1 topic on both Twitter and Reddit. With that being the case, Marvel has dropped the official trailer in hi-res, and they’ve also Tweeted out the following response to the leak.
Full credit to Marvel for handling this situation perfectly for fans. Business wise, I can imagine the people behind ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ are fuming, and understandably so. The trailer itself, which I think is fantastically ominous and destructive, raises a number of questions – for one, who the hell is Andy Serkis playing?!
Entertainment One has set loose, via Empire, these first two stills from Academy Award-winner Gavin Hood’s (Tsotsi, Ender’s Game) ‘Eye in the Sky.’ Starring the likes of the likes of Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Barkhad Abdi and Iain Glen, this contemporary international thriller is set in the shadowy world of remotely piloted “drone” warfare – an extremely controversial and pertinent topic (I personally believe drone warfare is inhumane, counter-productive, and I agree with Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch that it’s a violation of international law).
Written by BAFTA award-winner Guy Hibbert, this action thriller follows the complicated chain of authority that is firmly yanked when a new wrinkle enters a drone mission. The focus is on a few characters involved, including military intelligence officer Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren), remotely commanding a top secret drone operation to capture a group of dangerous terrorists from their safe-house in Nairobi, Kenya.
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes this new poster for the final film in Peter Jackson’s cinematic Middle-earth, ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies.’ The trilogy of ‘The Hobbit’ films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ which Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and his team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ will be released in the UK on December 12th and in the US on December 17th.
‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fast & Furious 7′ star Nathalie Emmanuel has reportedly joined the cast of ‘The Scorch Trials,’ the sequel to 20th Century Fox’s ‘The Maze Runner.’ Set for September 18th, 2015. ‘The Scorch Trials’ will start filming in November and has already added actors such as Emmanuel’s ‘Game of Thrones’ co-star Aidan Gillen, Rosa Salazar and Giancarlo Esposito to the cast. Emmanuel will play Harriet, the leader of a group of girls who’ve escaped from another maze that meets up with Thomas’ (Dylan O’Brien) group.
Based on James Dashner’s bestselling “Maze Runner” book series, the first film is set in a post-apocalyptic world where Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) is deposited in a community of young men after his memory is erased. After learning they’re all trapped in a maze, Thomas joins forces with fellow “runners” to not only escape the maze, but solve its riddle and reveal the chilling secret of who brought them there, and why. The likes of Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Jacob Latimore and Ki Hong Lee also star.
