Pain and Gain

By Hannah Soo Park

Michael Bay's bodybuilding drama "Pain and Gain" has a new poster (via Yahoo! Movies), and it's all stars and stripes and muscles—but mostly muscles, of course.

The brand-new poster features the film's uber-buff stars, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, standing before an American flag backdrop and sporting no-nonsense facial expressions. And to up the intimidation factor, the duo is posing with some seriously heavy-duty lifting equipment.

Star Trek

J.J. Abrams and co. are finally, finally initiating their plan to reveal "Star Trek Into Darkness" to the world. After years of speculating when the crew of the Starship Enterprise will return and who they will face when they do, we are now just days away from not only the first trailer for the sci-fi sequel, but also a 9-minute prologue in front of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

Today, however, the first poster for "Into Darkness" debuted, giving us our first official look at the mysterious villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, whose role was teased in the official plot synopsis last week. From the looks of the poster, he definitely seems like "an unstoppable force of terror."

Mike Wazowski and James P. "Sulley" Sullivan have got plenty of school spirit when it comes to the University of Fear.

A new poster for "Monsters University" shows the two monsters wearing letter jackets and hanging out with big smiles on their faces. Just like old "Monsters, Inc." times, except we already know that this movie tells the story of how Mike and Sully became friends. Kudos to Disney for having Mike stand on fantastically titled University of Fear text books like "Scareomics" and "I'm Scary, You're Scary."

It kind of came out of nowhere, but there is a new Riddick movie starring Vin Diesel scheduled to come out next year. Creatively titled "Riddick," the new film will be the third movie to feature the "Pitch Black" character.

Though there's no specific release date yet, the very first international poster for "Riddick" just arrived on the web, via ComingSoon.

The one sheet doesn't offer much insight into the film, except that Vin Diesel is going to be in it as Riddick and he wears goggles a lot.

Yesterday, we brought you a look at the complete three-part poster for "Oz the Great and Powerful," and earlier today, a new trailer for the Sam Raimi-directed fantasy debut. (You can watch it here.)

But what really has people's attention today is something that a Reddit user pointed out over on /r/movies. It turns out that Disney is really looking to recapture the enormous audience that came out to see their other revisionist fairy tale, "Alice in Wonderland." One quick look at the two posters leaves little doubt that they're trying to spark some connection between to the two movies.

Django Unchained

What would a Quentin Tarantino movie be without "life, liberty and the pursuit of vengeance"? It likely wouldn't be anywhere near as good as "Django Unchained" is shaping up to be.

A new poster for the flick touts that fantastic headline and also features leading men Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio -- all in black and white -- surrounded by a red blood spatter. That bodes well for the trajectory of this movie, right?

"Oz the Great and Powerful" is going to put an interesting twist on the Oz we all know and love when it hits theaters next March. After Disney released three posters separately, we're now finally seeing them together to get a sense of the wonderful world over the rainbow.

There's Chinatown, flying monkeys and the wizard's hot air balloon on the right, a very wicked-looking witch on the left, and the characters played by James Franco, Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz caught in between them. Oz certainly looks great and terrible in this image (courtesy of Yahoo), but somehow we have a feeling that the land is more than meets the eye.

21 & over

We've all made some mistakes, especially when it comes to celebrating a 21st birthday, but one mistake you should absolutely avoid is not taking a look at this exclusive poster from the upcoming comedy "21 & Over."

The movie comes from the writers of "The Hangover," Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and features a night of insanity worthy of the wolfpack.

"Les Misérables" remains one of the big question marks of the early award season buzz. It has all of the prestige to be a power player by the time that nominations role around, but no one has seen it. Does anyone need to see it, though? The musical is the same beloved musical that's been a Broadway staple for years, and the all-star cast should automatically elevate it into the awards conversation.

Either a way, " Les Misérables " is already considered a big presence in the pre-Oscar field, and with the marketing campaign beginning to pick up ahead of its Christmas Day release date, that should only grow more and more apparent.

The two latest posters for the mega-musical feature two iconic couples from the show. The first gives us our first look at Madame and Monsieur Thénardier, played by Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. The other focuses on the romantic lead couple, Marius and Cosette, played by Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried.

In the few pieces of video we've seen released around Chan-Wook Park's English-language debut, "Stoker," the only solid pieces of information we've been able to extract haven't been that insightful.

We know that Nicole Kidman is in it. Mia Wasikowska is there too, along with Matthew Goode. There's a plot involving murder and a traitorous brother-in-law, and it all looks creepy as hell.

Now a new featurette and poster for "Stoker" have only reinforced those ideas, especially the fact that this all looks creepy as hell.

Check them out after the jump!
