This ‘Spidey 2′ Featurette is All About Andrew

- 03-10-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


It seems that after what has to be like 300 featurettes about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 released so far, we’re just now getting one about the man behind the Spider-Man mask, actor Andrew Garfield. I know there weren’t a lot of fans of the first Amazing Spider-Man here at Nerd Bastards (listen to the podcast if you don’t believe me), but I don’t think one of the problems with the film was Garfield. The featurette does a pretty good job of reminding you why Garfield was a good pick for Peter Parker/Spider-Man and revisits Garfield’s journey from that first announcement of his casting in 2010 through to principal photography on the new sequel.

New ‘Amazing’ Featurette is When Rhino Meets Spidey

- 02-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


They are working overtime to convince us that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not going to suck, aren’t they? But cynicism aside, this is the third featurette on the upcoming superhero film we’ve gotten and the movie is still three-and-a-months from being released. So what has Marc Webb and company got for us today? A segment called “Lights, Camera, Action!” Does it feature the lighting? No, don’t be silly. Is it about the type of cameras they filmed the movie on? Nope, which means by process of elimination, this one’s all about the action. I mean, “Action!” (more…)

‘Iron Man 3′: New Poster, Extremis Talk, and the Cost of Being Iron Man

- 04-23-13Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


You like that? It could be yours if you go to the midnight IMAX screening of Iron Man 3 at your local IMAX theater, according to Screen Rant. The poster was designed by comic book artist Jock (The Losers, Hellblazer), and is the latest in 12:01 poster series, which previous has included unique works honoring the release Real Steel, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Frankenweenie.

In other Iron Man 3 new, Marvel Studios head honcho and Iron Man 3 producer Kevin Feige recently talked to the LA Times about Tony Stark’s mind set going into the movie, and where the character’s head is at this point in his story arc. Here’s what Feige had to say:

“He’s experienced things now that frankly was a wake-up call. You don’t have gamma-powered strength that anger can bring about. You don’t have super-soldier serum flowing through your veins. You’re not a thunder god from Asgard. You’re just a guy. And Tony doesn’t necessarily like to be reminded of those kinds of things because he likes to be at the top of the food chain.

“Where we meet Tony, he wants to be in that suit all the time, and he wants a lot of suits around him. And just as we sort of learn that’s his issue, we blow them all up and take him out of that comfort zone.

“We wanted to take Tony to a place that he hadn’t been since the first half of the first ‘Iron Man’ film, which is, essentially, by himself without his money, without his toys, without his gadgets, with just his mind, his intellect. We wanted to do that in a big climactic fashion by literally taking away everything that is near and dear to him, as symbolized in that mansion crumbling down into the Pacific.”

In other Iron Man 3 developments, a new featurette has been released, and it outlines just how Extremis comes into play in the film and how it factors into The Mandarin’s (Ben Kingsley) master plan. Included is commentary by director Shane Black, star Robert Downey Jr., and new head henchman James Badge Dale. Press play below (courtesy of Collider):

Finally, from the people who have more time on their hands than I do (and Geeks Are Sexy), a break down of just how much it costs to be Tony Stark. Enjoy!


VIDEO: Check Out New First Look Featurette for ‘Into Darkness’

- 02-19-13Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


Only three more months until the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, so hopefully we’ll start hearing more about it.

That was sarcasm. Obviously, we’ve been discussing and dissecting the film for months, so any new tidbit it welcomed and appreciated. And dissected. So here we go. This action-packed “first look” includes commentary from director J.J. Abrams, and actors Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana.

So since I know you’ve already stopped reading what I wrote, let’s go right to the video embedded below:

The Lizard Speaks In New ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Featurette

- 06-12-12Comics, Film Posted by Chris D.

A new featurette has surfaced for The Amazing Spider-Man, where we get a closer look at The Lizard.  The character is entirely CGI and while the rendering is done pretty well, it still feels a bit removed from the film itself.  Perhaps it’ll be different when we see the movie in its entirety, but I’m rather skeptical.

We do hear The Lizard speak for the first time in this featurette, and I do think that at the very least Rhys Ifans does a good job on his part.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think!  We’ll find out how this plays out on July 3 when it hits theaters.

The Early Word On ‘Prometheus’, PLUS A New Featurette About Prometheus (As In The Spaceship)

- 05-30-12Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

It looks like the marketing team tasked with pushing Ridley Scott‘s upcoming Sci-Fi epic Prometheus are starting to glance around, looking for what else they can do a featurette on. Well, the titular ship is a good choice, it’s probably going to be important in the movie and all.

Thankfully, this time around it seems a bit light on the spoilers (save for the last little slice that does contain some new footage.) It’s mostly cast and crew talking about the space craft, including production designer Arthur Max detailing the vision behind the ships design, and treating us to something we probably won’t see when the movie hits screens on the 8th of June since this space taxi will just be backdrop to all the squidgy alien eye worms and face melting.

I have to say, the Prometheus does look like a fine ship, think any of them play Sabacc?

Moving on.

With the release date of the Alien prequel pending,  /Film has the early word from the Twittersphere and the rest of the internet on the movie. Short form? Prometheus as freakin awesome as you were expecting.

The long form (and I do mean long) is up after the jump. It’s mostly free of spoilers, mostly…


Ridley Scott Wants To Scare The S#!T Out Of You: Two New Prometheus Featurettes

- 05-25-12Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Has anyone checked on Ridley Scott? I am getting worried, it’s been a couple of days since he’s released any footage from next months Prometheus. With the heavy amount of marketing getting pumped out for the flick (i.e. releasing the whole damn thing in 2 minute chunks) maybe he’s finally shown us the whole thing?

Nope. Two more clips have hit the net, and yes they contain the typical mix of stuff we’ve seen already with small snippets of new stuff, and interviews and behind the scenes. You know the deal.

After the jump, you can watch a follow-up to the Charlize Theron clip from a few days ago where  Logan Marshall Green  introduces us to his character Charlie Holloway and then a more Scott talks is vision of Prometheus and states his mission plan to make you soil your pants.

Yes, they are a bit spoilery, but I don’t care. This movie is going to be awesome. (I know, since I have seen most of it already).

Clips after the jump.

- 05-09-12Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

The more I see from Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus the more I want to see. Seriously. I am not even worried about seeing to much and spoiling the spectacle of it all. The latest little featurette focuses on the films main theme, the search for the origins of humanity. Apparently the Prometheus finds where we come from and it latches on to peoples faces. I hope I didn’t just spoil the movie for you.

Check it out, and yes, there is some new footage.

Prometheus is rated R and opens June 8th. It stars Noomi RapaceMichael FassbenderGuy PearceIdris ElbaLogan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.
