  • AVENGERS New Trailer, Poster & Avengers Speak
We not going to say anything JUST WATCH THE TRAILER BELOW

Speaking with EW, the cast reveals that they're as excited as anyone about the superhero ensemble finally hitting the big screen.

"Avengers has always been this kind of hovering [thing]," says Robert Downey Jr. "Is it really possible? I just think that it was an incredibly ambitious notion, and looking back at Marvel and their fledgling years, they always had a vision of this."
While the Iron Man star goes on to say that he's tried to stay very true to the character he created in the earlier films, Thor's Chris Hemsworth is anxious to see his Asgardian alter-ego evolve in the new film.
“There’s a maturity to the character because of the journey he went on, certainly," Hemsworth explains. "He was a petulant sort of kid at the beginning of Thor, and by the end of it hopefully you walk away thinking that he is matured and there was a grounded quality to him that wasn’t there before.. He’s [also] not quite the odd one out as much as he was in Thor. These guys … one of them wears an iron suit, one of them turns into a big, green monster. They all have these crazy personalities, and alter egos. They’re misfits, and that’s how they fit, in a funny way.”
Even though team members share some unusual similarities, don't expect them to all become immediate friends.
"I'm on such the periphery,” says Jeremy Renner of Hawkeye, “By nature of being a sniper on top of a building, the behavior of a sniper is a loner. He gets a call and comes and does his thing.”
"Part of what makes her sexy is she takes no prisoners,” Johansson likewise explains about the Black Widow. “You wouldn’t grab her for a big old bear hug.“
While Hawkeye and the Black Widow may have a preference for isolation in their personalities, one member of the team has found himself suddenly and completely alone.
“Who does he have in the world?" asks Chris Evans of Captain America. "Nobody. Rogers is kind of defined by his morals and values. In the '40s there was much more of value on those things. Things are a little more impersonal these days."
Rounding out the team is Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner, AKA the Incredible Hulk. Also a victim of loneliness, Banner has been dealing with his situation for a bit longer and the actor compares the Gamma-ray-fueled fits of rage to being an alcoholic.
"[Banner] starts like he's sober in a weird way," says Ruffalo. "He's started a whole new life when we find him, and it’s cool...The rage is something that is like going on a binger - you wake up after a blackout and you did all this f--ed up s--t."
Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D on May 4th in the USA and the 27th of April in South Africa, The Avengers is written and directed by Joss Whedon and also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and Stellan Skarsgard.

ROBOCOP (In Development)


Joel Kinnaman could be RoboCop
Actor Joel Kinnaman, best known for his starring role in AMC's The Killing, has just been tapped by MGM to play the title character in Jose Padilha's upcoming reboot of RoboCop.

Although nothing is official just yet, Deadline reports an offer has been made. Kinnaman, whose performance in Safe House can be seen now in theaters alongside Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, is the second actor to be offered a high profile role at MGM this week. Dwayne Johnson is also in early talks to join Brett Ratner's Hercules.

"I have my take on it," Padilha told late last year, "And I can tell you this: In the first 'RoboCop' when Alex Murphy is shot, gunned down, then you see some hospitals and stuff and then you cut to him as RoboCop. My movie is between those two cuts. How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?"

Eric Newman and Marc Abraham of Strike Entertainment are set to produce the film. Josh Zetumer has penned the screenplay.



Director Ridley Scott has revealed more about Guy Pearce's role in Prometheus, which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8. Scott conducted an interview with a Hungarian news outlet and spilled some more details as to who Pearce is playing in the sci-fi film:

Courtesy of AvP Galaxy comes this translation:

"When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner, and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.

The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well."

The anticipated film also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.

TURBO (In Production)

Press Release

DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. announced that Ryan Reynolds will lead an all-star cast including Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson in the Company's upcoming original film Turbo, which tells the story of an ordinary garden snail with dreams of racing greatness.

"Ryan Reynolds' infectious enthusiasm and humor will bring life to the lead role of Turbo and set the tone for this amazing roster of all-star voice talent," said DreamWorks Animation Chief Creative Officer Bill Damaschke. "This high-octane journey will take audiences on the race of their lives and completely re-define the traditional notion of moving at a snail's pace!"

David Soren (Merry Madagascar), a DreamWorks Animation veteran as a story artist, voice actor and director, is set to direct the film based on his own original concept.

Turbo is a snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world, just like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champ, Guy Gagne. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother, Chet.

Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he's living. As luck would have it, he gets that chance one fateful day after a freak accident when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed. Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer.

Turbo is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.

Turbo is scheduled to come to the big screen on July 19, 2013. 



Sylvester Stallone won't be taking a Bullet to the Head this spring after all.

Sly Stallone in Bullet to the Head
Exhibitor Relations reports that the release date for director Walter Hill's graphic novel adaptation has been rescheduled from April 13 to TBD, IGN has also confirmed this.

Warner Bros. has yet to determine a new date for the film, but we have been hearing that the film could potentially be pushed back to early 2013. Hopefully that won’t happen.

We can't say we're surprised by the news as the film was just a couple of months away from release and there still weren't any trailers or posters out for it.

Based on the graphic novel Bullet to the Head, written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson, it tells the story of a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) and a New York City cop who form an alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.
