The Han Solo Movie Is Titled SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Hero Pose From Transformers 4 Set

After teasing us all with a virtual car-nucopia (sorry) of flashy new vehicle images, Michael Bay has put the first official still from the making of Transformers 4 online. And… No, it doesn’t feature any new vehicles, or any of the metallic characters, because they’re still in the early stages of rendering at ILM. Instead, what we get is the super heroic image of Bay atop… something that looks distinctly Cybertronic, with new human stars Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor looking on.

Wahlberg, according to the IMDB, is playing Flynn Vincent, who, along with daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) and her racer boyfriend Shane (Reynor), get wrapped up in a brand new Transformer problem when the US government decides to try to exploit the robots’ technology some time after the devastating Battle of Chicago.

With a new threat emerging, Optimus, Bumblebee and the rest must fly/drive/transform to the rescue as the world is once more put in danger. Also in the cast are Kelsey Grammer, T.J. Miller, Stanle…

New Thor: The Dark World Images

The new issue of Empire hits newsstands next Thursday, and just to give you a taste of what to expect, here's a new batch of stills from Thor: The Dark World, offering a good look at Christopher Eccleston's Malekith and his armada, as well as the returning Asgardians. Yes, the new issue, along with much other goodness, holds these new stills and lots from the cast and crew of the film.


"You know, we are killing Asgardians in this movie," says director Alan Taylor inside. "It turns out immortality isn't all that it was cracked up to be."


Explains producer Craig Kyle, "Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It's a time of war.


"When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn't suc…

The Word’s End Review. Delivers Fantastic Comedy & Action

The Word’s End Review By: Nicolas Souza
If you enjoy laughing at Simon Pegg jumping over fences and killing zombies in Shawn of the Dead or Nick Frost shooting two guns whilst jumping through the air in Hot Fuzz, then get your hangover cure ready to drink all the way to The World’s End.


Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgram versus the World) returns to the helm of this third, and final, entry of the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy.” Front man Simon Pegg and his right hand man Nick Frost along with a lineup of actors from the previous two films are back. After surviving the zombie apocalypse and ending the threat of the murderous Neighborhood Watch Alliance, they are ready to drink the night away, until everything goes horribly wrong.


The World’s End introduces us to Gary King (Pegg). A down on his luck loser who is forever haunted by the one thing he never finished in his childhood, The Golden Mile; the task of having at least one pint at all twelve local pubs on the same night. Determined to accompl…

Watch The Trailer For INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS

Watch the official trailer for INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS.

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.


LLEWYN DAVIS (OSCAR ISAAC) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul —and back again.

Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS—in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?—is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen …

Ben Affleck Is Batman In Upcoming Batman-Superman Film

Ben Affleck is Batman.

The actor will replace Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming untitled Batman-Superman feature for Warner Bros., the studio announced Thursday.

Affleck becomes the eighth actor to play the Caped Crusader, following Bale, George Clooney and Michael Keaton.

“We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” WB president Greg Silverman said in a statement.

Directed by “Man of Steel” filmmaker Zack Snyder, the Batman-Superman feature will open worldwide on July 17, 2015, with Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Diane Lane reprising their roles.

“Man of Steel,” released this past June, has earned over $650 million at the global box office.

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, bu…

The World's End Review. Add It To Your Summer Movie List!

The World's End Review By: MattInRC
The appropriately-named The World's End is the funniest comedy of the year.

If you've seen Actor Simon Pegg before his Star Trek: Into Darkness days, you'll remember him as the guy who created Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, both hilarious takes on their respective genres. Since then, we've seen zombie and conspiracy flicks get a lot more serious leading to a 2013 Summer seemingly inundated with them. Luckily, Pegg's new project The World's End doesn't take itself too seriously, merging two seemingly unconnected things - drinking and alien invasion - into one of the funniest and most rewarding comedies we've seen in awhile.

THE WORLD'S END Junket Interviews With Cast-


Gary King (Pegg) is a washed-up drunken loser who can't seem to move on from his free teenage days. Institutionalized for a brief period and sporting the same 'trenchcoat fashion' from his youth, his best days are clearly behind him.…

Amy Adams To Play Janis Joplin

Amy Adams will play the rocker, Daniels tells THR ("Guess what? She can sing her ass off!") -- and after that, the director's aiming for "Miss Saigon" and a horror movie.

While Lee Daniels' The Butler was triumphing in its opening weekend, its director was riveted by old videos of Janis Joplin. "This is my next project for sure," he tells THR of the planned biopic that's been stalled for a decade, starring Amy Adams as the boozy blues singer. "I had no idea Janis Joplin was so smart -- intellectual, even. Look, some of the smartest people in the world have been drug addicts."

As for svelte, well-mannered Adams playing an out-of-control rocker: "Guess what? She can sing her ass off!" A rock biopic seems out of character for Daniels, but it appears he's steering himself into difficult-but-rewarding eclectic waters. "After Joplin, I'm hoping to get Miss Saigon off the ground. And then -- I want to make a horror mo…

El Mariachi TV Series On It's Way

The wandering music man of Mexico is returning to the screen – the small screen not the big one this time. Sony Pictures Television and Teleset announced today that they are adapting El Mariachi for the Latin American Market. Based on the 1992 Robert Rodriguez pic of the same name, El Mariachi the TV series will become a one-hour drama to air on Sony Entertainment TV across the region.

This is the third SPT project for the market. In May, Univision announced, somewhat prematurely at first, that the company would be making a Spanish language version of Breaking Bad called Metastasis to air on the network next year. In the case of El Mariachi, Sony TV will produce 70 episodes of the scripted series to start. It is the first series to be produced by SPT and Teleset entirely in Mexico. “Much like the film, El Mariachi offers audiences a unique blend of high-stakes action and romance,” said Angélica Guerra, SPT SVP and managing director, production, Latin America and U.S. Hispanic in a sta…

Benedict Cumberbatch Exists Crimson Peak

Benedict Cumberbatch has exited Crimson Peak, the Legendary horror movie being directed by Guillermo del Toro.

No reason for his departure was given, although sources say his exit is not due to another project.
Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska remain on board to star in the four-hander gothic horror story that centers on a woman who discovers that her husband might not be who he appears to be.

Peak is scheduled to shoot in January, and the exit at this early stage gives del Toro plenty of time to find a replacement. The filmmaker has already shown he can roll with the punches when he quickly cast Wasikowska after Emma Stone fell off the movie.

Cumberbatch is entering a busy period where many of his completed films will hit screens. Dreamworks’ The Fifth Estate kicks off the Toronto International Film Festival in September, Fox Searchlight’s 12 Years a Slave opens on Oct. 18, while the all-star August: Osage County opens Dec. 25.

He is also voicing the dragon Smaug in…

Joss Whedon Talks Ultron's Roll In Avengers 2

Ever since he popped in to the Marvel panel at the San Diego Comic-Con like a stealthy geek ninja to announce that his in-the-works Avengers sequel will be subtitled Age Of Ultron, Joss Whedon has had us all wondering just how the maniacal mechanoid would fit into the world of Iron Man, Thor, Cap, Hulk and the gang. Now, talking to EW, he’s revealed a few details.

According to Marvel lore, Hank Pym, better known as Ant-Man, created Ultron. But since Ant-Man won’t be a part of the new Avengers adventure, and Edgar Wright has said he isn’t featured in the stand-alone Ant-Man film, there will be some origin retooling going on here. The teaser that Whedon brought to the Con showed Iron Man’s helmet slowly being turned into Ultron’s metallic mug, so it seems logical to assume that Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark will have a hand in unwittingly creating the new menace. And here we thought he was done tinkering…

“I knew right away what I wanted to do with him,” Whedon says. “He’s always trying…

The day after the San Francisco premier of the last entry in the Blood and Ice Cream trilogyThe World's End, which was followed by a brief Q&A session with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright,


Here is Nic's interview below:

I sat down for a round table interview with the trio.

Interviewer: Last night during the brief Q&A, you talked about wanting to show parts of England that weren't London. Then in your movies you have parts of England that aren't London have zombies, they have murderers, they have what we see in this movie.

Edgar Wright: Which is basically saying, “don't go to England.” (Laughs) Richie Curti…

And now onto her full review of the film. Make sure to follow April on Twitter and check out her site HERE:

WARNING: THIS REST OF THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!! I TRIED TO WRITE IT WITHOUT THEM, BUT JUST COULDN'T EXPRESS MY TRUE FEELINGS WITHOUT REVEALING CERTAIN... PLOT POINTS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! ALSO MOST OF MY FEELINGS WON'T MAKE SENSE IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK!

So I have a confession to make, Before last night, I was not a TMI fan. I read the first book a couple years ago, it was okay. I really really loved the sexual tension between the protagonist, Clary Fray and Jace Wayland. Then I got to the end of the book and the big sibling bomb was dropped. I. Was. Mad. Terribly mad. So much so, that I did not continue reading the series. After complaining about it to a friend, she…
