The actors’ photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron keep on comin’ — but they haven’t started to get exciting. Yet.
Witness Mark Ruffalo’s (Bruce Banner/Hulk) snaps: a contemplative selfie with Robert Downey Jr. (who plays Tony Stark/Iron Man) and a rear view (sorry, only from the waist-up) of Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) that looks rather nicely moody.
In honor of today’s release of a second international trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, all of the King of the Kaiju’s roars, as heard throughout his cinematic career, have been spliced into one supercut vid, thanks to the work of YouTube member Ortboys:
Bonus: all that great, nostalgia-laced classic Godzilla footage. Ah, where have you gone, Destroy All Monsters?
Could this new international trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla be any more awesome?
The answer is no. No, it could not.
With an amazing cast led by Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, I’m hoping the story is as fantastic as the visuals.
Hang in there, folks — May 16 is less than a month away…
Don’t look now, but yet another 1980s TV series is being adapted for the big screen, and this time it’s THE EQUALIZER, the show about former government agent Robert McCall (Edward Woodward) who helped people in dire straights equalize the odds. This movie promises to… change the way you look at wine forever?
The update stars Denzel Washington as a former black ops commando who faked his own death and lives quietly in Boston. But when a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) finds herself in trouble, McCall comes out of retirement to rescue her and face down the Russian mob. The update reteams star Washington with director Antoine Fuqua, who guided the intense actor to an Oscar for 2001’s Training Day.
Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the film rights to a Flash Gordon project written by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, the screenwriting duo that has been working on the Star Trek 3 script for J.J. Abrams, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sam J. Jones and Timothy Dalton in “Flash Gordon” (1980)
The comic strip character was created in 1934 by the legendary Alex Raymond, and proved so popular that Buster Crabbe appeared in three movie serials based on the hero. In 1980, Dino DeLaurentiis produced an overstuffed big-screen version starring Sam J. Jones (and featuring Timothy Dalton and Max von Sydow) that has become a camp classic.
As far as I’m concerned, this new project doesn’t stand a chance unless it imports the soundtrack Queen wrote for the 1980 Flash Gordon. Check out the theme song in this video compilation and try to tell me someone could do better.
Robert “Iron Man” Downey Jr. Tweeted out his first official pic from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it is… well, not exactly action-packed.
The image shows RDJ in a yellow reflective vest, standing next to executive producer Jeremy Latcham.
Well… perhaps that purple jacket Downey is wearing is part of his Tony Stark costume?
How about a couple of brief yet fun DOCTOR WHO treasures of yesteryear? These video clips are examples of what’s in the archives of British Pathé News and just recently made available to the public at YouTube.
Dalek bookseller circa 1964:
Cyberman and Yeti
I know, I know… all-too-short and quite weird. But that’s what I like about these clips. We fans who weren’t in Britain in the mid-1960s can never truly understand the depths of Dalekmania or places the Doctor’s classic enemies held in the hearts of British children. But I think these videos can begin to hint at it — if you imagine the culture that could give rise to an automated magazine seller in the form of a malevolent pepper pot!
