Actors could begin to screen test as early as the first week of April for the coveted role that will be a spinoff from the Bourne trilogy that starred Matt Damon. At least four will screen test with other bigger name actors still in the mix.
An original story written and directed by Zack Snyder (of 300 and Watchmen renown), the film stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm and Jena Malone. Sucker Punch is scheduled for 3D theatrical release March 25th, 2011.
Last night, Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures debuted the first full-length trailer for the upcoming comic book adaptation of the Star Spangled Avenger; now, check out over 40 hi-res images taken from the footage.
This final video in the collection offers a fresh look at director Zack Snyder's world as envisioned by animator Ben Hibon in anticipation of the upcoming live-action film hitting theaters this weekend.
Directed by Tony Krantz, written by Emmy award winner Erik Jendresen (Band of Brothers) and featuring the debut soundtrack by The Smiths’ legend Johnny Marr, THE BIG BANG is a neo-noir detective thriller for the 21st century.
The movie slate for 2011 is definitely one for fanboys with four major comic book adaptations, sequels to Transformers and Pirates of the Caribbean and movies like Conan and Cowboys & Aliens that are rooted in graphic novels. For popcorn movies, Sucker Punch kicks things off with a bang and is a visual assault on your senses. This is clearly a Zack Snyder movie through and through. Like a kid in a candy store, the director grabs all sorts of wild fantastical elements of geek culture off the shelf, throws them in a blender and serves it up in a sleek container.
For the first time ever, Universal is releasing the fully restored version on Blu-ray and in HD. They are also launching a fan art contest where 10 submissions, voted on by fans, will have their work included in the Limited Edition pack.
Director Joe Wright, Fight Choreographer Joe Imada (Bourne films) and the main actors discuss storyline, motivations and the Chemical Brothers soundtrack among other topics. Blanchett goes as far as saying its “the most terrifying script I've ever read in her life”
Ghostbusters: Infestation #2 continues the cross-publisher zombie event in a way that is visually impressive and funny, but a little convoluted at times. The fictionalized science that made the first offering in the mini-series work well goes on in this sophomore issue to defy a logical sounding set of boundaries.
The Mission #2 is a great comic that puts a cool spin on the holy hitman (or for internet hit purposes, Vatican assassin) premise by mixing fun and seriousness really well. In fact, the amount of balance found within the book makes everything work almost perfectly.
Spoiler Warning: Though very little information has been revealed regarding the ninth American Pie movie -- which will be the fourth released in theaters, the newest circulating rumor breaks down the film's plot and characterization.
