While this poster is almost identical to the final US and UK theatrical posters for the film, Cine1 has unveiled this Marvel Latino final poster for ‘Iron Man 3.’ You can view the poster in hi-res here. ‘Iron Man 3,’ the latest installment of the film franchise that has grossed more than $1.2 billion at the global box office, will be released internationally starting April 26th and in North America on May 3th. The film pits the brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds (The Mandarin; Ben Kingsley). When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, ‘Iron Man 3′ returns Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Marvel’s The Avengers) as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2) as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) as Happy Hogan. Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3′ marks the second feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009. The likes of Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Guy Pearce, Wang Xuequi, Fan Bingbing and William Sadler join the Marvel universe in this third Iron Man movie as The Mandarin, Maya Hansen, Eric Savin, Aldrich Killian, Dr. Wu and Sal Kennedy, respectively.
Although his role has yet to be disclosed, director Bryan Singer has took to his Twitter account to announce that the award winning French actor Omar Sy (The Intouchables) has joined the cast of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Singer tweeted the following: “Thrilled to welcome the brilliant
#OmarSy from the amazing film #TheIntouchables to the cast of #Xmen #DaysofFuturePast!” Personally I’d love to see Sy play Bishop, one of my favourite X-Men characters. Expect news regarding his role soon. Sy was recently said to be in talks to star alongside Bradley Cooper in Derek Cianfrance’s (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) ‘Chef.’
Last month director Bryan Singer announced that the ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage is the latest actor to join the ever-growing cast of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Further reports bring word that the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor will play the main antagonist in the film. With Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director recently announced that Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) will be joining the film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy. That casting news follows the announcements that Hugh Jackman will be playing Wolverine again, and that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are to reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X, with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy returning to play younger versions of the same characters in the film. Seeds of a tie-in between the trilogies were sown when Jackman hilariously cameoed as Wolverine in ‘X-Men: First Class.’ Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have also been confirmed to star.
Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot – fame and fortune are his for the taking – that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity – and even a bit of wizardry – Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well. ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ is pencilled in for a March 8th release. In the film Michelle Williams play Glinda, a good witch who rules over a kingdom of simple, kind folk. Beautiful Glinda is not only a compassionate and benevolent witch, but also a fierce protector of her people. Though Glinda sees through Oz’s facade early on, she knows genuine goodness lies within and helps Oz achieve his true destiny.
What was your primary motivation for playing Glinda the good witch, or was there a range of things that grabbed your interest?
Michelle Williams: There was so many! It was a wonderful convergence of so many exciting reasons to take this movie on: I really wanted to work with director Sam Raimi, I wanted to make a movie for kids, and I wanted to play a character who brought out the best in human possibility. Also, I really wanted to make a movie that my daughter could see, and I was really excited to be a part of something that had an overall “good” message, and wasn’t kind of tainted with sarcasm or ill-humour (laughs). I was really excited to play Glinda, who is the embodiment of everything honest and unselfish and pure. I liked that (laughs). And working with Sam, he’s just a great guy, and to me that’s as important as him being a great director. He was somebody that I could always turn to or go to. He was like a touchstone on set for me. Sam’s my dream director, I love that he never loses his sense of humour.
