Joss Apologizes; Ultron Caught on Film (Sorta)!

Filming for Avengers: Age of Ultron has moved to Seoul, South Korea, and director Joss Whedon posted a message to the locals, apologizing in advance for turning the place into a superhero battleground.

Elsewhere, some enterprising paparazzo with a good lens shot these images of the Ultron stand-in on the set. I call it a stand-in because the character looks so silly, the armor strapped over a heavy winter coat. There is no way the Big Bad is going to look this ridiculous on the big screen. Obviously, there will be at least some CGI involved in conjuring the real Ultron.

Still, I think it’s fun to see what the actors are working with; imagine you are Chris Hemsworth and you have to deliver your epic Thor lines to this guy!

Watch the ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ TV Spot

There’s a new TV spot running for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and while it’s way short, it looks just as foreboding as the first trailer.

In case you cannot tell from the spot, here is the storyline, according to the official synopsis:

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

The Planet of the Apes Dawns on May 23.
