It’ll be a little less than a year before Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return to the theaters as Agent J and Agent K in “Men in Black 3.” Filming is currently going on in New York, and a few set photos have been released!
The photos, which weren't released officially but were taken by a fan who was in the right place at the right time, first appeared at Coming Soon.
All six photos show vehicles, but some are a little more radical than others. Seeing as the movie involves time travel back to the 1960s, it makes sense that most of these cars appear to be from that era, not to mention the New York Post van with news of the moon launch on the side.
“Captain America: The First Avenger” will be hitting theaters later this month, and two new featurettes have been released to the public, telling us more about the character Steve Rogers and what it took to make a period piece.
Posted at Epix, the first video is all about Cap himself. “Steve Rogers is a guy living during World War II and he wants to join the army but he can’t because he has a whole laundry list of shortcomings,” explains Chris Evans, the actor who brings the Marvel hero alive on the big screen.
“So he’s continuously been denied this one thing that he really wants,” Evans goes on. “So when he’s given this opportunity, he’s given the serum, you know, it doesn’t go to his head. He’s chosen because he won’t take advantage of it.”
To get people in gear for the second season of “The Walking Dead,” creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman is giving us a tour of the film set. The season won’t start until October, but Kirkman has a few things to show us first.
In the behind-the-scenes video (which we spotted on Spinoff Online), Kirkman shows us around the "Dead" set.
“We’re back here in Atlanta, back at it, making magic happen," he says. "Although I’m not doing very much of the work — I’m walking around watching.”
San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner, and we all want to know what to expect. Marvel Studios has already said that they won't have a Hall H panel presence this year, but that doesn't mean we won't see some of Earth's Mightiest Heroes -- say, “Captain America” and “The Avengers” -- at the show in another capacity.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, while there won’t be a panel for “Captain America,” a military salute starring Chris Evans is being planned. Evans would be backed by soldiers and, as long as he’s there, odds are he’d also sign autographs at the Marvel booth.
Additionally, with “Captain America: The First Avenger” opening while Comic-Con is in full swing, there are even rumors of screenings. Paramount declined to comment when THR asked for more details.
You may know Garth Ennis from all his work in the comic book world, but now he’s taking on a new role: movie writer and director.
The "Preacher" and "The Boys" writer has directed a short film, “Stitched,” which is about soldiers in Afghanistan. It's also part of a bigger picture, because it sets up a continuing comic story and another anticipated movie down the line.
Speaking with Bleeding Cool, Ennis said where the idea for the movie originated: “‘Stitched’ began as little more than a series of images, really – three little figures stumbling across a barren landscape, exhausted people struggling to survive against the odds, blood on the rocks of the mountains, and lots of frantic, close-in combat.”
It isn’t unusual for movie titles to change when going overseas, especially when one considers the difficulty of translating words to get the exact same meaning. So it’s not strange that “Captain America: The First Avenger” will be called something else in some other countries, but the reasons for the change aren’t that typical.
According to The New York Times, Marvel and Paramount Pictures, the people behind “Captain America,” were originally thinking of calling the movie “The First Avenger” in the overseas market. Not because of translation, but because the idea of a Captain America might be distasteful in areas where there are strong opinions against America and its foreign policies.
However, Paramount’s overseas operation said this was a bad idea, pointing out that Captain American is a well-known comic book figure and that would sell. A compromise has been reached: the movie will be called “Captain America: The First Avenger” everywhere except in Russia, Ukraine and South Korea. Read More...
It can be difficult to get real news on “The Dark Knight Rises” because of director Christopher Nolan’s secrecy with his projects. Even the actors can be in the dark about certain aspects of the filming, says Tom Hardy — though he may know more than other actors.
Hardy, who plays Bane, sat down for an interview with French outlet Allocine. The actual interview was conducted in English, with French subtitles, so check it out:
“I'm a bit naughty, actually; I like to look at everything!” he said. “Even though people say don't read everything, I like to read everything, so I'm aware of what's going on." Read More...
Over the last year, "The Wolverine” has had some bumps in its road to production, like the departure of director Darren Aronofsky and concerns about filming in Japan after the tragic earthquake. But it looks as if things might be smoothing out for the next solo film featuring the Marvel hero.
Indie Wire reported on a CHFI radio interview Hugh Jackman conducted in Toronto. Instead of describing any further problems for production, Jackman had some good news for everyone looking forward to the film.
“We shoot ['The Wolverine'] in October, so it will probably come out a year after that,” he said. “That’s usually around the timeline.” Read More...
The Hulk seems to have no shortage of fans these days. Besides appearing in “The Avengers,” the previously announced "Hulk" television series is moving forward, according to producer Guillermo Del Toro.
It was first announced last year that “Hellboy” director Guillermo del Toro and “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer David Eick were planning to bring the Hulk back to the small screen. Now that some months have passed, Fear Net asked Del Toro if “Hulk” was still happening.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah,” the director responded. “We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago. And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages.” Read More...
Well, maybe saying that “Green Lantern 2" was moving forward was jumping the gun a bit. A new report indicates that rumors of the franchise's continuation have been greatly exaggerated.
After The Hollywood Reporter initially stated that Warner Brothers was going ahead with a sequel despite the film's less-than-stellar opening, the outlet has revised its report with word from a studio spokesperson who said the company has not officially decided on a sequel. Read More...
