Iron Man 3: First Look At Mandarin, Teaser Footage

On the eve of the unveiling for the Iron Man 3 debut trailer, Entertainment Weekly has released a photo giving our first official look at Sir Ben Kingsley in his role as Iron Man's key signature villain, Mandarin.

While it is recognized that the solo sequel to Marvel's Armored Avenger will feature Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark forming a new bond with his armor by way of nano-technology, it will also delve into new pathological territory for the billionaire genius; that of darkness and doubt.

Now, the Marvel movieverse's Iron Man will contend with his greatest, most iconic comic book rival for the first time on the big screen.

Check below for the teaser footage released this past weekend which is designed to whet our appetites for tomorrow's trailer debut.

Despite the stigma of being a too-quick reboot featuring a relatively-unknown star, The Amazing Spider-Man managed to nab the top spot at the box-office this past weekend, bringing impressive (albeit not record-breaking) numbers.

However, it might be the case that the film needed a little more old-school intrigue. Well, thanks to this mashup of the film's trailer with footage of the 1967 classic cartoon series (which now serves-up myriads of Internet meme pictures,) we can see for ourselves if that's the case.

Image Expo 2011

Robert Kirkman, co-founder of Image Comics and co-creator of The Walking Dead, stopped by Attack of the Show this week and we caught up with him backstage to learn more about this weekend's Image Expo. The convention, which runs from Friday, February 24th to Sunday, February 26th in Oakland, CA, features the best of the best from Image Comics, including celebrity guests like Steve Yeun, Norman Reedus and Chris Hardwick.

Learn more about it straight from Kirkman himself!

1st Annual Wayne Federman International Film Festival This Weekend!

You might not know Wayne Federman by name, but you've seen his face, we're sure of it. Mr. Federman has been in such movies as Legally Blonde, The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Step Brothers, 50 First Dates, and Funny People, and played Garry Shandling's brother Stan on the seminal 90's series The Larry Sanders Show. Wayne Federman knows comedy, and he knows a lot of other comedians, which was sort of the germ of inspiration for The 1st Annual Wayne Federman International Film Festival, which kicks off this weekend at Cinefamily in Hollywood, featuring some of the world's greatest comedians curating some of their favorite films, apropos of nothing except for the fact that they really love them.

The idea, Federman says, came to him when a friend (and former Simpsons writer) Rob Cohen rented a movie theater and showed the 1966 classic Batman, featuring the original Caped Crusader, Adam West, just because he really loved the movie. A couple years later, Patton Oswalt showed off The Fist Foot Way in similar fashion, and Wayne was attracted to the idea of comedians talking about and showing movies they'd had nothing to do with personally. So, he decided on a festival experience during which he would curate the comedians and they would curate the films.

Deadpool: How Will New Director Tim Miller Fare?

Over the weekend, it was announced that Deadpool, the long-in-the-making solo film featuring Ryan Reynolds as Marvel's beloved, deadly-sarcastic titular "Merc with a Mouth" had finally nabbed a director in effects artists Tim Miller.

While the man has never sat in the director's chair, his visual effects resume is full of impressive titles like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Night At The Museum, X2, and Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes.

Yet, for a film in which enthusiasm of the fans, the character's very tweet-vocal creator Rob Liefeld, and even its would-be star himself are teeming with momentum, it does seem a bit odd that Fox would stick a journeyman director on such a potentially lucrative film.

Should we take it as a sign?

The Beatles Yellow Submarine Remake Is Sunk

It seems that the marketing juggernaut of The Beatles has hit a rare unfortunate snag. The plans for a 3D remake of their classic 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine have essentially been trashed. With the man behind Back to the Future, Robert Zemeckis as producer, 16 Beatles songs, and cutting edge 3D tech, the film had been in planning stages well before Avatar-mania of late 2009. So, is this a sign that The Beatles' popularity may be slipping? Think again! Oddly enough, the blame for this debacle can be firmly placed on the horrific box-office performance last weekend of animated feature Mars Needs Moms. -- Say wha?

Liam Neeson Says No A-Team Sequel On The Table

In a recent interview, Liam Neeson has revealed that there are no plans for a return as Hannibal Smith in The A-Team. Speaking with Den of Geek, the actor discusses the deflated box-office performance of last year's revival movie and why it happened. He's played everything from a Jedi Master, the Lord of Mount Olympus, a former CIA Agent, Anti-Holocaust Hero, and even a Jesus Lion, yet Neeson apparently feels badly that he may not get another chance to take a puff from a cigar and muse about a plan coming together. It seems that he quite enjoyed the time he spent with co-stars Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley, and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as the wrongfully-framed elite military unit who go around solving injustices in a cool black and red-striped van. With a strong hype campaign, a solid cast, and possible crossover draw from the MMA crowd with the casting of Jackson, the odds seemed in its favor. So, what went wrong?

Nicolas Cage Confirmed For Ghost Rider 2

Nicolas Cage has revealed that his upcoming return to comic book movies in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will actually not be considered a sequel to his effort in 2007's Ghost Rider. (Wait...wha?) A junket interview with Collider to promote this weekend's release of Drive Angry 3D concluded with Cage fielding a question about what audiences should expect from the (also 3D powered) 2012 Ghost Rider follow-up. Besides the typical hype about amped-up action and new shooting styles, Cage actually went out of his way to make it perfectly clear that Spirit of Vengeance is not direct sequel to the 2007 film, even revealing that an all-new origin sequence will be featured in the film about stunt biker Johnny Blaze, whose Faustian bargain turns him into a flame-skulled demon hog rider whenever evil is afoot by night. So, just to reiterate, according to Nicolas Cage, he will essentially be starring in a reboot of his own film?

What Else Did The Groundhog See?

What Else Did The Groundhog See?

Punxsutawney Phil, the world's official Groundhog Day groundhog, emerged from his hole this morning, and didn't see his shadow, which means that Spring is right around the corner! However, we have it on good authority that Phil has other talents  besides predicting the weather, and is, in fact, a seer. So, using our underground hotline, we asked him about what else he saw when he crawled out this cold morning in Pennsylvania, and you might be shocked at some of the headlines he predicts for 2011.

1. Philadelphia Eagles Win Super Bowl XLV, Beating Both the Packers AND the Steelers - In what will be a groundbreaking result to the big game, the Philadelphia Eagles will invade the field in Dallas this Sunday, having lay in wait since the Wild Card round of the playoffs, to win Super Bowl XLV. While the Packers and Steelers, depleted from having played all the way through the playoffs, try and fend off the Eagle offensive and defensive lines, game MVP Michael Vick will have a field day, securing the win for Philly.
