Red Tails may sound dangerously close to some sort of horrendous sex act, but no it's actually a new film coming out from George Lucas, the only man on the planet who would make Hitler come second in a list of history's most hated men, at least if the internet experts got their say. Nevertheless, many have been impressed with the first sights of the upcoming film about The Tuskagee Airmen, the first African-American fighter squadron to see combat, and that continues with a trailer/poster combo from MTV.
There was a time when you could not release a major motion picture without having a music tie-in. Either a song with very pointed and ill-fitting references to the movie's plot or just a music video that crowbars footage from the movie into it. That trend disappeared around the time Will Smith stopped making music (it would have been inappropriate for him to release a rap about The Pursuit Of Happyness), but Kid Cudi & Fright Night are bringing it back.
Guillermo del Toro once described the 1973 telefilm Don’t Be Afraid of The Dark, as “the scariest TV production ever made,” bold words for one of the world's most respected horror aficionados. So at just under forty years since its release, it seems only appropriate that del Toro would revive this creepy caper to terrify a whole new generation.
It was film night last night at the Plex household. We’ve just about got our gear unpacked form our recent move and a £70 investment last week has led to the pretty funky eight-speaker sound system being very nicely calibrated. And, now that we live in splendid rural isolation, it means that I can crank up the sub a little more than terraced suburbia allows. I’m looking forward to giving that a proper run-out, let me tell you... (Suggestions for the film I should use to pop that particular cherry very gratefully received…)
The ubiquity of phone cameras has made it increasingly difficult for studios to maintain a shroud of secrecy over their projects – we’ve had images from the set of Superman, The Dark Knight Rises and now you can feast your peepers on sneaky peeks of The Avengers. The Joss Whedon helmed culmination of the recent slew of Marvel superhero flicks has been filming in Ohio this week, with Cleveland doubling as New York. The scene is question features Chris Evans’ Captain America doing battle with – well, he’s doing battle with a man in a mo-cap suit, as you can see after the jump.
The rumble of many feet running to computers can be heard when news breaks that more images from the set of Man of Steel have been released, as fans everywhere get their latest look at the much anticipated Zack Snyder's Superman.
Arizona. A man (Daniel Craig) wakes up in the middle of the desert. He is wounded and alone, has no memory of who he is or what he is doing there and has a mysterious shackle encircled around his wrist. As he tries to recall his past he finds himself in the town of Absolution, a desolate place ruled by the iron-fisted former Civil War Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) and his spoilt and cruel son Percy. It doesn't take much for things to get critical for our mysterious protagonist: as he gets into trouble with Percy's gang, the local sheriff also realises that he is nothing less than the most wanted Jake Lonergan, accused of the murder of a woman.
After spending seven years battling evil at Hogwarts, it would make sense that Daniel Radcliffe may want to go in a different direction for a while. But no, he's jumping right back in to the world of the supernatural with The Woman In Black, the new trailer for which Yahoo! have just thrown up.
I won't lie, I enjoyed G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra at the time. I have no intention of ever seeing it again, but I did not walk away hating myself, which I consider a major victory on most days. It is FAR from a good movie, in fact I would say it's not even as good as The Mummy Returns, but during a summer when all taste and reason was being assaulted, it was the liquid charcoal counteracting the poison known as Transformers 2.
This won't be of any use to any of our UK readers, but you can't see a cool movie poster like this and not pass it on for the purposes of geekgasms. Edgar Wright is hosting a triple-bill of his films - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and (the underated) Scott Pilgrim v The World, at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. Check it out after the jump and tell me that you're not tempted?
