The Lone Ranger: New Trailer Returns From The Other Side

Next summer's revival western, The Lone Ranger has released a new trailer showing a much different side of the film than we got back in October with its debut trailer.

We were previously treated to a reinvention of the classic tale featuring the voiceover manifesto of a greedy robber baron played by Tom Wilkinson who plans to use the newly-laid railroad system to control the new world. This trailer, however, is more spiritual and delves a bit into the origin of the titular masked marauder of morality played by The Social Network's Armie Hammer. 

Our hero is a man who lost everything that he cares about in the world. After cheating death, he plans to devote his second life to the cause of justice with the help of his newfound ally, Tonto, played by Johnny Depp with a wig, a lot of white facepaint, and a pseudo-Native American accent that could potentially raise the ire of some.

Check out the trailer below to see, among other cool things, the worst hangover wake-up ever.

After Earth: Debut Trailer Evolves To Kill Humans

The debut trailer for next summer's sci-fi survival epic, After Earth has arrived with a planet full of pushy primates and dreadful dinosaurs who aren't so keen on welcoming a pair of the human species back to Earth. -- Even if that pair happen to be Will Smith and his son, Jaden.

While serving as a father-son vehicle for the Smiths, it also marks the directorial return of the notoriously-twist-happy taskman, M. Night Shyamalan. Having tried his hand (unsuccessfully) at big-budget popcorn fare with the live-action anime adaptation, The Last Airbender back in 2010, Shyamalan takes us to a genre-jumbled mashup of space sci-fi and Jurassic Park.

Will it work? Acknowledge that fear is a choice and check out the trailer below.

The Hobbit: First Look At Bilbo In Second Film

While The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits in just one week, a new photo has given us our first look at the next installment in the trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Entertainment Weekly's Hobbit-riffic coverage this week debuted a number of photos, including this first look at Martin Freeman's Bilbo Bagins laying on a giant hoard of gold, which I assure you isn't there because of his wariness of the U.S. Dollar.

What does this photo reveal about the events in store for Bilbo and his dwarven companions when Desolation hits on December 13, 2013? Well, quite a bit, actually.

Also check below for another preview photo jumping to the trilogy's final installment with our first look at Orlando Bloom returning as Legolas hanging out with Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman!

Tron: Legacy Sequel In The Works


Posted December 6, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Tron: Legacy Sequel In The Works

It appears that the 2010 franchise reboot, Tron: Legacy will be getting a sequel after all.

Disney is reportedly negotiating with screenwriter, Jesse Wigutow to pen the script after an earlier draft by David Digilio was scrapped. With that set, Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is reportedly returning to the helm.

A rather unknown commodity, Wigutow was previously tapped to script the currently-sidelined remake of The Crow earlier this year and is already working with Disney on an update of the Peter Pan mythos called Peter and the Starcatchers. Now, the sequel to the $400 million-grossing Legacy could serve to raise his profile.

With the news that Disney is moving forward with the third feature installment in its classic eye-popping, philosophically-Trojan-horsed techno-thriller, you can bet that loads of Daft Punk-listening fans will be practicing their disc-tossing techniques and revving their imaginary light cycles for an impending return to the Grid.

Thus far, no details have been revealed on the "whens" or "whats," but it does seem that Garrett Hedlund's Sam Flynn and Olivia Wilde's AI-turned-real love interest, Quorra have unfinished business at the arcade.


Star Trek Into Darkness: Debut Trailer Hits With Vengeance

The long-awaited debut trailer for sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness has hit the status quo of the future with an explosive, albeit eloquently-spoken fury that could rip Starfleet to its very core.

Clocking in at little over a minute, the brief teaser is a colossal cavalcade of crushing carnage mixed with shots of shocked faces.

We also get a peek into the mindset of the extremely irate villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch who wants to make it perfectly clear that our world is anything but safe once he brings his one man tour de force of demolition to a futuristic town near you.

Check it out below, as well as a (slightly) extended Japanese version which may have given us a critical clue.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation: New Poster Touts 3D Conversion

The promotional effort behind sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has released a new poster, likely in an effort to remind potential audiences that the film still exists.

Of course, Retaliation was initially set for release back on June 29 before Paramount Pictures would make a risky (and costly) choice to nix those plans, opting to shelf the film for nearly a year for a complete 3D conversion and possible tweaks to the film itself.

Well, after several months off the radar, it appears that the Retaliation hype machine has reactivated as its announced March 29, 2013 release date looms closer. (Although, the poster says March 27.)

Check out the full poster below and decide if knowing is still half the battle.

The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray has hit store shelves today, giving all of us Bane's permission to BUY the dramatic denouement to Christopher Nolan's Batman films.

With that occasion as the backdrop, the folks at Screen Junkies have once again provided their own dissection of the film that, while carrying its epic Nolan-esque moments, does contain some plot holes as nebulously explicable as Bane's voice.

While the famous tagline for the 1978 Superman movie with Christopher Reeve said, "You will believe a man can fly," we could similarly say of his fellow DC Comics hero that "You will believe a man can heal a broken back in two months while stuck in a dirty old prison with nothing but a rope and a Rocky training montage."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Jamie Foxx Confirms Talks For Electro

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 seems to be moving along steadily, but has it already found its villain? Possibly.

It seems that rumors from last month about actor/singer, Jamie Foxx being in line for the role of villain, Electro were not just rumors after all. Foxx himself confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that he has been in talks with director, Marc Webb about playing Spider-Man's spark-shooting criminal conduit.

If this is true, then, much like Rhys Ifans' The Lizard, the debut of Electro will continue the current franchise's strategy of venturing into new live action territory when it comes to Spidey's rogues gallery.

What could Jamie Fox's potential role as Electro bring to this sequel?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gets New Harry Osborn

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director, Marc Webb has announced via tweet that he has cast the wall-crawling sequel's new Harry Osborn: Dane DeHaan.

Absent from the first film, the character of Harry Osborn, previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, is Peter Parker's best friend. Unfortunately, beneath his happy extroverted surface, lies a tortured young man who is barely clinging to life in the shadow of his renowned industrialist father, Norman Osborn. (Who will be the alter-ego of the glider-gallivanting, pumpkin-bomb-popping Green Goblin at some point.)

The 25 year-old DeHaan is best known for this year's faux-vérité "kids with super-powers" film, Chronicle, as well as roles on HBO TV series such as True Blood and In Treatment.

Now, he fills a critical role in the new Spider-Man mythos as the wayward buddy of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker; a character whose life consists of conflicts of interest and, in a famously controversial Comics Code-defying moment in history, a drug habit.

Could this mean that the ominous Norman Osborn, who is only mentioned in The Amazing Spider-Man will finally surface in the sequel? We'll find out when it sticks to theater walls on May 2, 2014.

Justice League Movie Has Its Villain?

Does the upcoming Justice League feature film already have a villain lined up? Well, according to a report, the answer would be affirmative.

The folks at LatinoReview have learned that when Warner Bros. wrangles the heroes of the DC Comics universe together to hit the big screen in Avengers-like epicness, they will be tangling with none other than the durable, detestable despot, Darkseid.

While it is hardly a report containing much substance, Darkseid has always been the clear front-runner when it comes to the choice of villains who are powerful enough, recognizable enough, and carry the kind of gravitas necessary to be the main antagonist in an effort against the main lineup of DC Comics superheroes, headlined by Superman himself. (Plus, Tom Hiddleston was busy with The Avengers 2.)

What could this mean for DC's mega-team movie movement?

Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Poster

The first official teaser poster for sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness has been revealed, featuring, presumably, the film's yet-to-be-identified, dastardly, super-powered pillager played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Of course, while there are no stars nor any trekking taking place in the poster, it remains consistent with what we've head about the kind of villain we will be getting in this film; one that's bringing some unadulterated, unstoppable carnage back home to the blue jewel of the Terran system and home of the Whopper: Earth.

Check out the full poster below and witness some of the symbolic destruction waged by a guy with super-powers that's really pissed off. (And I'm not talking about Superman with a bad case of hemorrhoids.)

Wonder Woman TV Series Plot Details


Posted November 30, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Wonder Woman TV Series Plot Details

Plot details have emerged about The CW's upcoming Wonder Woman TV series, tentatively titled, Amazon.

When the news hit a few months back that the network would be taking yet another crack at DC Comics' bikini-clad, lasso-lobbing luminary, it was immediately made clear that it would be going in a completely different direction from the TV pilot headed by David E. Kelley which was completely scrapped last year.

This version appears more interested in chronicling the early life of the heroine, similar to what Smallville did for Superman. However, a rather lengthy summary of the show's plot has emerged, revealing that the show's direction is even more different than we thought. It seems that the would-be Wonder Woman will be portrayed as a young immigrant whose life has been filled with war, who must now cope with something she cannot comprehend: Life in the good 'ole US-of-A.

Check out the plot summary for the yet-to-be-completed script below!

The Collection Writer And Director Interview: Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton On Creating A Horror Sequel

Tucked among the holiday tentpole and Oscar bait movies opening at your local cinema this weekend is Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s gory little horror film The CollectionThe Collection is a sequel to Dunstan and Melton’s 2009 film The Collector. In the original movie a burglar named Arkin, played by Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), robs a house that, unbeknownst to him, has been filled with deadly booby traps set by the titular Collector; a masked killer who delights in watching innocent people meet their demise in his traps. In The Collection, Arkin is blackmailed into helping a privately funded group of mercenaries rescue a young girl held hostage by The Collector in an abandoned hotel rigged with all manner of homemade death traps.

This week we had a chance to sit down with Dunstan and Melton (whose credits include writing Feast, Saw 4 – Saw 3D, and Piranha 3DD) and talk about having a sequel stand on its own two feet, navigating audience expectations, and why they chose to shoot a low budget movie on film instead of digital.

(Note: mild spoilers ahead)
