The Hobbit Comic-Con Exclusive Poster

The first part of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit is now a mere five months away, and heralding its presence at this year's Comic-Con, Peter Jackson has taken to his facepage to reveal a con-exclusive new poster.

This, we're saying, is Gandalf making his way through The Shire away from Bag End, having just shared the details of an adventure that he's arranging. He, of course, arrived at chez Baggins neither early nor late, but exactly when he meant to.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - whatever parts of it Jackson's presentation entails - will arrive at Hall H in San Diego in the afternoon of Saturday July 14.

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD Review By: RAMA

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD Review By: RAMA
Let's find out what RAMA thought of BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.


BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD walks on a thin line between discomfort and tranquility. In a way, the film somewhat tests how far you can endure its imagery. This film will either make you feel guilty or it will make you count your blessings. But I think this is one of the most original works I’ve seen in recent years. One of this year’s best..


In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions…

Taken 2 International Trailer. Revenge Time

We got our hands on the international trailer for Taken 2.



Taken 2. Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.

The Hobbit Is A Wrap

There were several times in the now dim and distant past (well, only a couple of years ago, really) when we thought we’d never see The Hobbit start shooting. But the cameras began cranking on March 20 last year and now Peter Jackson has posted the picture above to Facebook, marking the end of the two Hobbit movies’ long slog through production.

We made it! Shoot day 266 and the end of principal photography on The Hobbit,” he wrote in a note accompanying the image. “Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for getting us this far, and to all of you for your support! Next stop, the cutting room. Oh, and Comic Con!”

Yes, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There And Back Again will now be making their way through the editing and post-production system. Though given that the first film is set for release in December, Jackson and his crew will already have started getting it ready.

But for now – and assuming there aren’t pick-ups or second unit material still to be shot – the st…

KATY PERRY: PART OF ME Review Yes MattInRC Enjoyed It

KATY PERRY: PART OF ME Review By: MattInRC

KATY PERRY: PART OF ME gets surprisingly deep into a pop sensation's world. The question is, are we better off for knowing it?


Katy Perry is a polarizing figure in pop music; people either love or hate her music and persona, both of which illustrate a growing trend to introduce sexual overtones and even fetishism into every aspect of daily life. Case in point: Perry's appearance on Sesame Street, in which she and Elmo engage in a duet, was never aired because her shirt was considered too revealing. Yet for Perry, such things are commonplace and even acceptable in the eyes of her fans. It's no doubt that Perry is a pop sensation, in full command of her success and enjoying every minute of it. But are audiences better off for it, when she or others continually cross the line to confuse her youngest fans about appropriateness? While Katy Perry: Part of Me doesn't address that controversy, it does go way outside of the upbeat, …

Jamie Chung Cast As Mulan In Once Upon A Time

Once Upon a Time is adding to its arsenal of fairy tale characters.

The Hangover Part II star Jamie Chung has been cast in a recurring role for the ABC fantasy drama's second season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. Her role? The Chinese warrior Mulan.

Disney adapted Mulan's story into a big-screen animated musical in 1998 with ER alum Ming-Na voicing the title character. In the film, Mulan secretly fights in the army in her father's place to save him from death.

The legend of Mulan began in an ancient Chinese poem titled "The Ballad of Mulan."

Chung recently starred in Sucker Punch, Eden and will appear in Knife Fight, 7500 and The Man With the Iron Fists.

Once Upon a Time will appear at Comic-Con on Saturday, July 14 at 11 a.m. with exec producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and cast members Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Lana Parilla, Meghan Ory and Emilie de Ravin.

Naomi Watts As Princess Diana

While pap snaps have struck in the last couple of days, the first official pic of Naomi Watts as Diana, Princess of Wales has now arrived online.

Watts is starring in the film, once called Caught In Flight and now shooting under its much less ponderous title, Diana, which follows the last couple of years in her tragic life.

With Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel calling the shots from a script by Stephen Jeffreys, the plot sees Diana starting a relationship with Dr Hasnat Khan (Lost’s Naveen Andrews), but finding that a life lived still in the glare of the media is not as easy as she thought. Still, she manages to enjoy some of the more fulfilling experiences and charity work. “I’m excited and honoured to be playing the role of a truly remarkable woman, who had such a positive and profound impact in so many ways,” says Watts.

The film will shoot around London and other chunks of the UK, while also heading to Croatia and Mozambique.

Douglas Hodge and Juliet Stevenson are also among…

Ball Headed Matt Damon In "Elysium" Image

It'll be part of Sony's presentation at ComicCon in a couple of weeks, but we still know admirably little about Neill Blomkamp'sElysium. There was some viral activity a year or so ago, at which point we confidently predicted a constant drip of further information. Nope. Aside from a bit of plot synopsis from a test screening, we're still pretty much in the dark, but the first spark of enlightenment has just arrived courtesy of EW. Here's a look at a shaven-headed Matt Damon, wielding a very big gun of some sort.

Is CHEMRAIL the new OCP? Is that a bionic arm? No idea.

Elysium is, of course, Blomkamp's long-awaited follow-up to District 9. Set in the year 2159, it's about the oppressed people of the ruined planet Earth versus the privileged elite aboard the Elysium space station, and what happens when the terrans fight for equality.

Damon is ex-convict man-on-a-mission Max, and Jodie Foster is the dastardly government official intent on enforcing anti-immigrat…

PEOPLE LIKE US Review

PEOPLE LIKE US Review By: RAMA
Let's find out what RAMA thought of this film.


A somewhat sentimental but effective drama for siblings everywhere. Well-acted, well-scripted, I think Alex Kurtzman’s feature directorial debut is off to a feel-good start. Chris Pine once again, just like he did in Star Trek, shows those effortless skills of his, everything about that man screams movie star, and Elizabeth Banks proves that this is her finest hour, both Pine and Banks to me are fairly new, we’ve seen their previous works, they’ve been around, mostly in supporting roles, but as lead stars, they’re slowly but surely showcasing what they’ve got and PEOPLE LIKE US gives them the opportunity to shine the brightest. This is where their dramatic chops are put to the test…


From DreamWorks Pictures comes “People Like Us,” a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine (“Star Trek”) as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day …

Marvel's Item 47 Explained

We all knew there was going to be a short film attached to Marvel's Avengers Blu-ray. We knew it was going to be awesome. Now we know just how awesome. So—what is Item 47 about, who is in it, and what does it mean for the future of the Marvel movie franchise?

Starring Lizzy Caplan (True Blood, Party Down, The Class), Item 47 gives us an idea of just how different the world is after the events of Marvel's Avengers. Superheroes are in the limelight, an alien invasion was barely thwarted, and your average Joe or Jane is left to wonder, "Am I safe?" and "What happens next?"

A modern-day Bonnie and Clyde story, Item 47 tells the story of Benny and Claire (get it?), who find an alien gun and use it to ill purpose. Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito explains saying, "So when this gun ­literally fell into their lap, this is a sign: We're going to rob a few banks, we're going to buy a boat, we're going to the Caribbean, and all our pro…

Marvel Comics Answer To DC's "The New 52" Is "Marvel NOW"

Marvel Comics is embroiled in Avengers vs. X-Men, a crossover event which follows an all-out war between the publisher’s iconic superteams. When Avengers vs. X-Men reaches its conclusion, the stage will be set for a massive restructuring of the Marvel Universe. “It’s not hype when we say that AvX is the culmination of a lot of stories we’ve done over the last several years,” says Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso. “Characters are redeemed or not. Characters are changed. The X-Men and the Avengers are both repositioned for the future. What better time to shake things up? “

And Marvel is shaking things up. Entertainment Weekly is excited to exclusively announce Marvel NOW!, a massive new initiative that will launch new titles and relaunch old ones starting in October. Some of the company’s top storytellers are leaping from one corner of the Marvel Universe to another. Brian Michael Bendis is leaving the Avengers for a new X-Men book; Jonathan Hickman will end his run on Fantastic Four …

The Amazing Spider-Man Review

The Amazing Spider-Man Review By: MattInRC

Does The Amazing Spider-Man usher in an exciting new chapter in the franchise or signal yet another reboot?


 Warning: major plot spoilers ahead.
I have joined millions of moviegoers in condemning the horrid Spider-Man 3, a film that put the once-proud franchise into a coma with a single dance scene. But there were more issues to that film than just the sidestepping: the product felt tired and bereft of imagination, as if our hero needed a partner or a major shakeup. Throwing too many substandard enemies at one hero never solved anything, but that's exactly what we got. Something needed to change, but was a reboot really necessary? That was Sony's call; and so five years after Tobey Maguire and company were shown the door, the lights dim for The Amazing Spider-Man. Does Sony make it up to fans with a new high-flying adventure, or should we expect yet another reboot in about five years?


Sadly, The Amazing Spider-Man is too drawn out,…

The Hobbit Exclusive Photo

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit gets a public unveiling at Comic-Con this month. Ahead of the shindig, EW has revealed new shots of Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Bilbo (Martin Freeman) and dwarves Fili, Kili, Dori and Nori, among others, embarking on their epic quest across Middle-earth.


Troll readers be warned. The Hobbit is also an origin story for Glamdring, Foe-hammer, Gandalf's two-handed sword. Here it is in all its troll, orc and goblin smiting glory.

Interestingly, there's also glimpses of Galadriel amongst EW's pictures. She has been recruited from the pages of Lord Of The Rings and encorporated into The Hobbit's storyline. Any excuse to watch Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving as Elrond is alright by us, so Jackson's promise that "it will all make sense" should keep purists at bay.

Kenny Powers Will Return. Eastbound & Down Season 4 On The Way

America, are you ready for more Kenny Powers?

HBO has ordered eight more episodes of the cult fave Eastbound & Down that stars Danny McBride, EW has confirmed. That’s an abrupt about-face from what the actor and his producing partners — Jody Hill, Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy and Adam McKay — were saying earlier this year, when the show finished its spring run. “HBO definitely wants us, and [co-creator] Jody Hill and I love writing for the show,” McBride told EW earlier this year. “But there is other stuff we’d like to do. Both of us are ready to make jokes concerning people who don’t have strange haircuts.”

Obviously, HBO managed to persuade the boys that Powers needs to stage a comeback. The third season wrapped with the Major League pitcher appearing to be dead — until he showed up at the doorstep of April Buchanon, played by Katy Mixon. Needless to say, he’ll have some ‘splaining to do when the show returns for its fourth year.

Iron Man 3 Concept Art Comic-Con Exclusive

After being told by Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige that Tony Stark would be be "cut off from the world and need to focus on his intellects to get himself out of his situation", it was a wonder just how Iron Man 3 writer/director Shane Black would go about it - but now this concept art offers some tantalising clues.

Dubbed 'Caged' by the artist, Ryan Meinerding, the piece shows Mr. Stark in a rather awkward situation: somehow he's ended up with only part of his suit on when he's surrounded by armed assailants.

Has his suit been removed (in part) by others? Is this a new suit entirely, with the unusual alternate finger-colouring and all? Is this, in fact, the Extremis armour?

Those who've read the Extremis arc of the comic books will be able to draw their own techno-organic and nanobot-based conclusions, but all in all, it's another intriguing glimpse into this new, somehow Avengers-less world of Mr. Stark.
