Watch: First trailer for ‘Tomorrowland’ with George Clooney drops

- October 9th, 2014

Disney has just dropped the first teaser trailer for next summer’s Tomorrowland. The highly-secretive film pairs George Clooney with director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) in a story from Damon Lindelof (LOST).

In the spot we see Britt Robertson being released from a detention centre. As she’s handed back her belongings, she is given a pin with the letter ‘T’ on it. It’s not hers she says, but when she touches it she’s immediately transported to a field that’s nestled beside a futuristic-looking city.

“What if there was a place?” George Clooney teases in a voiceover. “A secret place, where nothing was impossible. A miraculous place where you could actually change the world.”

The clip fades to black, and then we get a glimpse of Cloony’s Frank Walker. “You wanna go?” he asks. The title card comes up before a split second bit of action.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lindelof hinted that film’s sci-fi leanings. “What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” Lindelof tells the magazine. “Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel.”

Tomorrowland opens May 22, 2015.

‘Avengers 3′ release date set?

- July 23rd, 2014

Hey internet, you’re going to want to sit down for this one – the Avengers 3 may have just gotten a release date.

All of this is ahead of Comic-Con, so don’t expect any confirmations or denials from the Kevin Feige camp anytime soon. They’ve got their hands full already.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, amidst various release date announcements from the FOX and Sony camps, Marvel is joining the bidding war.

It took only hours after Sony made the announcement they were delaying Amazing Spider-Man 3 from 2016 to 2018, and pushing back Amazing Spider-Man 4 to an announced date for Marvel to swoop in and snap up the May 4, 2018 weekend.

Although Disney won’t confirm what movie will be released (remember, busy with other things), one source close to the Reporter confirmed it would be a big movie and it falls directly in line with the other Avengers release dates.

The first Avengers was released on May 4, 2012 and Age of Ultron is scheduled to be released May 1, 2015. If the rumours of the unannounced project being the third Avengers movie are true, it would be exactly six years after the first movie premiered.

Talk about fan pandering in the best (and most convenient way) possible.

The May 4, 2018 weekend announcement comes just one week after Disney revealed they had five massive films set for release dates through 2019.

With Sony and FOX reorganizing their big budget blockbusters to get the biggest bang for their buck, it’s very apparent the bidding war has only just begun.

Let the games begin.

Marvel sets dates for five movies over next five years

- July 18th, 2014

Do you hear that buzzing?

That’s the sound of fanboys and girls everywhere collectively trying to figure out what the next five movies are that Marvel could have planned for their cinematic universe.

Marvel Studios made headlines once again Friday evening when they released the dates for five unannounced films that have already earned set release dates.

Here we go Marvel fanatics, prepare to scratch these dates off on your electronic calendars:

  • July 28, 2017
  • November 3, 2017
  • July 6, 2018
  • November 2, 2018
  • May 3, 2019

Although it’s difficult to speculate what these films may be at this current moment in time, I’m going to hazard at least one will be a Captain America title, one will be a third Avengers title, and one will most likely be a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.

We already know Chris Evans has at least one more Captain America film left in his contract, and most of the Avengers cast have confirmed they’d be willing to do a third title in the series.

While I don’t have any proof to back up my Guardians of the Galaxy theory, I’d like to think that considering Marvel hasn’t released a one-off title in quite some time, Chris Pratt and friends are going to stick around for at least a second film.

The July 6 spot is the least mysterious of the bunch, however. Marvel already announced the highly anticipated Doctor Strange film would be released in 2017, and if speculation rumours are true, July 6 will be the day Doctor Strange makes his debut on movie theater screens around the world.

Could Bradley Cooper be the new Indiana Jones?

- March 26th, 2014

Not sure how Indiana Jones fans will take this latest rumour. According to Latino Review, Disney could be contemplating rebooting their swashbuckling archaeologist with none other than Bradley Cooper for the titular role.

It’s worked a number of times for James Bond, so the thinking could be straight reboot, not a sequel.
In an interview last fall, Harrison Ford said he’d be up for playing Indy a fifth time, “In a New York minute.”

“I don’t think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart,” Ford said while promoting Ender’s Game in an interview with The Graham Norton Show [via Digital Spy]. “I’m old enough that we don’t need [Sean] Connery any more – I’m old enough to play my own father!”

Last summer, Ford told The Telegraph, “We’ve seen the character develop and grow over a period of time and it’s perfectly appropriate and okay for him to come back again with a great movie around him where he doesn’t necessarily have to kick as much ass.”

As recently as 2011, writer George Lucas was saying he was still trying to figure out a suitable story for Indiana Jones 5. “I really haven’t found the MacGuffin (that’s the plot device for you non-Hitchcock fans) yet,” Lucas told Vulture. “I mean, I know what it’s about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we’re working in.”

But after Disney acquired the Indiana Jones property late last year, Alan Horn, chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, said that a new Indy film was at least two or three years away. “We don’t have a story. We need a story,” he told Variety.

By then, Ford will be almost 75.

So what do you think about Indy being recast, and if someone new plays the character, is Cooper the right choice? Sound off in the comments below.
