Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot has continued to chug along, whether fans wanted it to or not. As each detail, prop, or cast photo has hit the Internet and people have lost their collective minds either in opposition or support, the production has kept the buzz for the film at a smoldering level. This latest release of cast pictures that features the first look at Chris Hemsworth‘s character Kevin, no last name yet, the nerdy looking secretary. (more…)

This week brought us a much anticipated sneek peak of the new all-female band of ghostbusters appearing in the upcoming film of the same name.  They look fierce, capable and ready to put those sleek and updated proton packs to good use.  The girls are part of the trend of female-driven action flicks that has been (finally) sweeping Hollywood.  So who are these new ghostbusters?  Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Kristen Wiig.  We know this, yes, but until now, we didn’t know much else.  Director Paul Feig has just released some tidbits about each of his leading ladies, in time with some up close and personal posters that showcase a little of each ghostbuster’s individual personality.

Thor‘s been the red-headed stepchild of Avengers movies for a while now. Iron Man broke the box office, and fan excitement pushed the next Captain America movie into earlier than expected development, but ask if anyone wants more Thor and you get a less than enthusiastic, “Meh,” to the idea. Hence the nearly four year wait between The Dark World and RagnarokThe phrase “shake things up” seems apropos to Ragnarok’s development. Marvel hired Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) to direct, Mark Ruffalo has been brought in to give the God of Thunder a fellow Avenger to play off of, and now a new screenwriter has been hired to rework what’s been done so far.  (more…)

Ragnarok

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Thor in particular, are furiously nodding their heads in agreement. Chris Hemsworth recently shared his exciting vision for the future of Thor: Ragnarok and it has fans of the mighty Avenger saying, “Verily, we shall align our cause with yours and charge forth with you into the third installment of your flowery speech-saturated franchise, Chris, He-who-is…Worthy of… uh, Being-Hemmed…” (more…)

Yesterday, as per recent tradition, we got a trailer for the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War. The sorta-sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman promises to be the same kind of effects-filled, Tolkein-esque gothic adventure as the original, but with the focus now on Chris Hemsworth‘s title character. But you know who stands out in this first full trailer? All the ladies. It is the tradition of fairy tales for the men to fight and the women to be saved, but is Winter’s War about to throw shade on that sexist folklore in a big way? If the trailer is to be believed, the answer is a definite maybe. (more…)

From Game of Thrones‘ ominous warning “Winter is coming,” to the accidental chaos of crykinetic powers in Disney’s Frozen, to all those super-villains like Captain Cold, Killer Frost, and Mr. Freeze, fantasy literature has been telling us for years that ice and snow is evil. To wit, the message is sent and received once again in this first teaser for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, in which we meet the Ice Queen as the latest cold-related fairy tale villain in this quasi-sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Even without Snow White, it seems that everything in this magic kingdom is far from alright. (more…)

It’s a bromance for the ages. While it’s still unknown whether Thor: Ragnarok will explore Bruce Banner‘s relationship with the meaner and greener side of himself, we know it will show us more of the friendship between Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Ruffalo went as far as to describe the upcoming Marvel film as “a buddy picture,” although even in the tightest of friendships there are bound to be squabbles. For two superheros, however, “squabbles” is definitely an understatement. (more…)

Let’s be brutally honest, neither of the Thor movies made so far have exactly been barn burners. While Iron Man 1 and made their marks, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a near universally-acclaimed film, neither Thor nor Thor: The Dark World have caused fans to walk out of the theater saying that they needed more of the God of Thunder right there and then. So maybe what Thor really needs is to shake things up for part three, and while many would loath to say it, maybe if Odin-son went darker, it might get some more attention. As fate would have it, that’s just what they’re saying about the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. (more…)

With just a couple of days left until the October 2nd DVD/BluRay release date for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron one would expect Marvel/Disney to ramp up their massive marketing machine for one push at consumers. We’ve seen one gag reel already and now we’ve got another. Many of the actors during the press junket talked about how loose and fun Whedon keeps the set and now we’ve got proof. (more…)

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on DVD and Blu-ray later this week, and while we all jauntily marched to the theater back in May to watch it, we eagerly anticipate the home video of release of the film to get a look at those deleted scenes. Everyone’s been pretty upfront that the original cut of Ultron was much longer, and watching the movie it’s easy to note that it’s missing a few things that were cut for brevity. So now we’ll be able to check out what was cut out, and one of those scenes in question is the one included below. (more…)
