Marvel Studios has released four new images from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, two of which are official stills and two of which go behind the scenes.
The most interesting of the bunch is a shot of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord running along the terrain of an alien planet, with the wall behind him just a flat wall of blue. It's not all that different from an old Star Trek set. It just goes to show how much post-production work goes into making movie look as polished as the final screenshots presented here look.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer revealed that the movie, as one might assume, will at least partially be based on the "Age of Apocalypse" storyline from the mid-1990s, though " won’t necessarily create an alternate universe."
So you remember Be Kind Rewind, where Jack Black and Mos Def made homemade versions of popular movies like RoboCop, a sentence that sounds like the rantings of a madman until you remember that it's an actual movie? Well, it seems that the fine folks over at CineFix's Homemade Movies have taken a page out of that book, only they're doing it one better.
Using costumes, action figures and a whole lot of cardboard, Homemade Movies has done a pretty incredible shot-for-shot recreation of the trailer for TheAmazing Spider-Man 2.
Deadline reports that Justin Marks, writer of the upcoming live-action Jungle Book movie and of the screenplay for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, is adapting a treatment written by Oliver. David S. Goyer, who has been a driving force behind a good many DC Comics movie properties over the past several years, will produce.
With the exception of Wesley Snipes, David S. Goyer and Sticky Fingaz from Onyx, I'm willing to bet that I have spent more time thinking about the Blade movie franchise than any man alive. I mean, just that vertical suplex at the end of Blade II alone has taken up a considerable percentage of my thoughts over the past 12 years. And yet, it never occurred to me to request that Man At Arms, the series of videos featuring master swordsmith Tony Swatton re-creating famous pop culture weapons that was last seen building a real-life Pokémon, take a shot at Blade's glaives.
Fortunately for everyone who enjoys seeing fictional weapons stabbing real-life soda bottles, several other people took the initiative on that one, and the result is that the world now has three brand-new razor-sharp vampire killin' weapons. Check out a video to see the process (and some gratuitous stabbing) below!
The directors for TheAmazing Spider-Man 3 and Venom were already in place at the time of that announcement (Marc Webb is sticking with the main series and Alex Kurtzman will handle Venom), but Sinister Six's director wasn't yet confirmed. Now, it seems like an almost-done deal that screenwriter Drew Goddard, who directed The Cabin in the Woods and is also writing the new Netflix Daredevil series, will have the job.
If you've seen the trailer for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, you're likely already familiar with the prominently featured scene in which Chris Pratt's Star-Lord tiptoes up to an ancient-looking artifact with designs on stealing it in a manner reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Now, Marvel Studios has released a slightly longer look at that scene in what you might call a clip or what kind of seems like a slightly different trailer cut. Whatever you'd call it, the video awaits your eyes.
So you know Stan Winston, the Academy Award-winning special effects designer who worked on Terminator, Predator, Jurassic Park and Iron Man? Well, it turns out that he founded a school, and if that list of movies wasn't enough to make you think you could probably learn a thing from it, then they now have the best possible advertisement they could ask for in Kai-Xiang Xhong, who builta life-sized, wearable suit of cardboard Iron Man armor and earned himself the nickname "The Taiwanese Tony Stark."
The suit -- which, fortunately, did not involve Xhong being kidnapped and held for ransom by terrorists allied with the Ten Cardboard Rings faction -- is just the tip of the iceberg for his creations. Check below for more, including Optimus Prime, lifelike animals and an amazing dragon that was his first-ever cardboard sculpture!
The release of TheAmazing Spider-Man 2 is just around the corner, and if there's one thing we know about that movie, it's that there are a lot of villains involved. Electro, the Rhino, the Green Goblin, some weird-ass dancing baby -- they're all showing up to give the web-slinger some problems. But is that really enough bad guys?
The producers of the video game tie-in certainly don't think so. As revealed in the latest trailer for the upcoming Activision title, Spider-Man's going to be throwing webs and flying headscissors takedowns at all those foes, plus the Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter and the Kingpin. And as an added bonus, Activision and Beenox have made the Kingpin hilariously huge. Check out the trailer below!
This past February at Toy Fair 2014 we were able to get our hands on LEGO Groot, but couldn't snap photos since the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer hadn't yet made its way online at the time. With the month of March having come and gone with the trailer in its wake, it seems fans can finally feast their eyes on more than just LEGO's bricky version of Star-Lord's ship as part of the "The Milano Spaceship Rescue" set. Hit the jump for a full look at the upcoming "Starblaster Showdown" and "Knowhere Escape Mission" GoTG sets, plus final promo photos of the X-Men: Days of Future Past-flavored "X-Men vs. The Sentinel" set we saw a few months back.
