Waspjanet

The first look at Paul Rudd in Ant-Man didn’t show us much, and this image of Evangeline Lilly suggests a lot more than it actually reveals.

Lilly plays Hope Van Dyne in the film — that’s the daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (above). We know that Janet isn’t in the film much, if at all. (But she may not actually be dead, counter to many assumptions.) That has led to assumption that Evangeline Lilly will take the superhero role normally associated with Janet: the Wasp. Images posted by the actress show that she’s got part of the character’s look down pat, at the very least. Read More »

Outcast trailer

Ever wonder what Hayden Christensen is up to these days? I mean, probably not, because like most people, you probably forgot he existed in the first place. But today we have an answer for you anyway.

According to the first Outcast trailer, he’s gallivanting around ancient China with none other than Nic Cage, trying to help a couple of kids reclaim the throne or something. And it’s just as hilariously bizarre as you’d expect. Watch the Outcast trailer after the jump.

MondoCon schedule

Movie heaven comes to Austin, Texas during the third week of September. Not only is that when Fantastic Fest is happening (much more on that in the coming days) but the fine folks at Mondo are simultaneously hosting their first convention, MondoCon. But no, this isn’t going to be just a place to buy posters. As discussed a few months back, MondoCon will be a gathering for everything a movie fan or collector could desire.

Mondo has just released the full programming line-up, as well as a few small glimpses at the goodies. Among the highlights? A mini-gallery exhibition of work based on The Iron Giant, including that film’s score available on vinyl. The lost score to 2001: A Space Odyssey will be on sale along with a panel discussion. A never-made 1983 U.S. Godzilla film will be revealed through storyboards and concept images. Plus a screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with live score, the world premiere of a documentary on the 2000AD comic brand and much more.

And that’s just part of it. Will there be posters? You bet. Lots of surprise posters along with the first Alex Ross Mondo poster. Will there be guests? Tons, including newly annoucned names like Bryan Lee O’Malley, JC Richard and William Stout.

The event takes place September 20-21 in Austin and tickets are still on sale. Below, read the full programming press release. Read More »

The Woman in Black sequel

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death follows up, obviously, on The Woman in Black, the 2012 gothic horror film that saw Daniel Radcliffe facing down a malevolent spirit. Part of the appeal of the first film was seeing Radcliffe out of his Harry Potter garb, but the movie was also effective as horror. It doesn’t leave much room for a direct sequel, however. And so Angel of Death moves forward to 1941, when two teachers and their students attempt to escape the Blitz in London. They end up at the Eel Marsh House, where the woman in black waits. Check out the Woman in Black sequel teaser below. Read More »

Automata trailer

The film Automata seems to have come out of nowhere, and it appears to have just the sort of vibe that fans of Neill Blomkamp’s film District 9 will love. Antonio Banderas stars in and produces a story that bears a distinct conceptual influence from Isaac Asimov, but which looks a lot more like Blade Runner and the films from Blomkamp. It’s set in a gritty vision of the future in which robots are poised on the brink of evolution, and charts the intersection of the life of one man and a set of intelligent ‘bots. Watch the great Automata trailer below. Read More »

Jaws-header

In today’s Hollywood, the movie poster is an afterthought. Dozens of marketing and advertising executives justify their jobs by demanding everyone’s input be represented and, as a result, anything interesting or provocative is lost. We all remember this, right? And this?

The homogenous nature of modern movie posters is, of course, a generalization. There are some movie posters with artistic merit but the percentage has dropped significantly over the decades. What is definitely true, though, is the iconic posters of the past have all but gone away and, in one case, that’s quite literal.

According to Roger Kastel, the artist who made the unforgettable poster to Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws, his original 20 x 30 inch painting went missing around the time of the film’s release. Read more about the Jaws poster art below.
