Caesar and his ape followers have evolved quite a bit since the events of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." As seen in a Twitter photo posted by director Matt Reeves, a "new dawn" is coming in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" where apes can ride horses.
The image Reeves posted shows Andy Serkis' Caesar facing having a conversation with Jason Clarke's character. Serkis and another man can be seen wearing motion capture suits, but interestingly their characters are seen on horses. That's a nice nod to the original "Planet of the Apes" movies, where horses were a main means of travel for the apes.
Warner Bros. is inviting fans to take "Pacific Rim" into their own hands. The studio has launched a "Jaeger Designer" that allows users to go online and style their own version of Earth's massive defenders in anticipation of the movie's upcoming release.
The website, which can be found here, allows fans to customize their own Jaeger by giving it different visors, decals and effects. The visors give the Jaeger various strengths, while the effects show how battle hardened it is. Though there are only limited options for each specialization, each Jaeger created will likely turn out looking quite different.
After what has literally been years of waiting, the trailer for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" has arrived. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, is a terrifying sci-fi epic that Guillermo del Toro has promised will blow our minds, and now we can see why.
The trailer for "Gravity" goes light on the plot and heavy on the visual splendor. "Gravity" tells the story of Bullock's Dr. Ryan Stone and Clooney's astronaut Matt Kowalsky after their space ship gets destroyed and they get stranded out in space. Cuaron seems to have intentionally shot those scenes of destruction to be terrifying, but nothing is more chilling here than the final shot of Stone drifting alone out in space. Check out the trailer below.
"Now You See Me" has looked like a roller coaster ride of a film ever since the first trailer was released, and everything we've seen about the movie since then has reinforced that point. Now Summit Entertainment has revealed the first four minutes of the movie (okay, it's actually just the first three minutes and 40 seconds) to serve as an introduction to its four central characters.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher serve as a group of world-famous magicians who team up to pull off a pretty ridiculous heist in "Now You See Me." Here we are introduced to them individually to see how they each pull off their own brand of magic. Also, did anyone else pick out the seven of diamonds from that deck of card? Eisenberg's character is clearly very good at what he does, though we're a bit concerned about the fate of Fisher's.
An adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel "Live By Night" is the next project on Ben Affleck's docket. The actor-turned-director reportedly started pre-production on the film today.
Deadline reports that Affleck and Warner Bros. are eying a August or September filming start date for the movie. Affleck will star in the film as well as direct, write and produce it. Though Affleck moved away from Boston for his Oscar-winner "Argo," he will be returning to his home city—at least partially—for this new movie. "Live By Night" is set in Boston, Tampa and Cuba.
The troubled production "Jane Got A Gun" might have recently lost Bradley Cooper as the film's antagonist, but a replacement has already been found.
Deadline is reporting that Ewan McGregor is locked down for the "pivotal role of the leader of an outlaw gang" in the Gavin O'Connor-directed film. This will be a bit of a reunion for McGregor, who previously starred with leading lady Natalie Portman in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy. Noah Emmerich plays Portman's character's husband, and Joel Edgerton plays her former flame.
In other casting news, Benicio Del Toro is in talks for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest and Keira Knightley could replace Anne Hathaway in an upcoming indie. Get more info about those two projects after the jump!
It always feels like overkill when a studio releases a large number of clips from a movie in anticipation of its impending release date, but that's exactly what Universal Pictures has done with "Fast & Furious 6." Fortunately this series has proved time and again that it doesn't need a brilliant marketing strategy to get people in theaters.
All nine clips can be watched over at Coming Soon. Some show Vin Diesel's character Dom bringing the team back together to hunt down a new villain who might have a connection to the assumedly dead Letty, while others give us a taste of the badass character Gina Carano will bring to the film—she seems amazing. All in all, they're pretty great teases for the new movie.
Steven Spielberg's follow-up to "Lincoln" has been revealed. The director has chosen to develop an adaptation of the autobiography "American Sniper" written by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bradley Cooper will both star in the movie and will act as a producer. This Spielberg announcement comes after Cooper decided to pull out of "Jane Got A Gun" due to his busy schedule. It’s understandable why Cooper would want to stick with this project now that Spielberg is involved.
Deadline doesn't know more about her role beyond the fact that "this is a great follow to her Oscar-nominated turn in 'Zero Dark Thirty.'" In fact, little is known about the movie in general, and its stars plan to keep it that way.
