Soon, You Too Can Be Part of "The Avengers!" 


Want to move like "Captain America?" Fly like "Iron Man?" Wield your powerful hammer like "Thor?" How about smashing things like "The Incredible Hulk?" You too can spank your inner "Avenger," at least in the world of videogames!

Marvel's "The Avengers" made a gazillion dollars in its short run that it's a no-brainer to know that there's now a videogame currently in the works. (Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed sequel plans, read here)

This new videogame from Ubisoft Entertainment will be called "Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth" and will be available for both the upcoming Wii U console and Kinect for the Xbox 360. This one's not based on the current Joss Whedon film but on the "Secret Invasion" comic book series.

Watch "Gangster Squad" Trailer! It's Gosling vs Penn vs Brolin! 
Director Ruben Fleischer bent the notions of the zombie genre with "Zombieland," so I'm looking forward to seeing his next film, "Gangster Squad" starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin, and Sean Penn from a script written by Will Beall and William Finkelstein (previous draft).

From Warner Bros. Pictures, "Gangster Squad" tells the true-life tale of the underground battle between the LAPD and East Coast gangsters in the 40s.

The trailer looks explosive, and of course, this is an Oscar-bait to be released during awards season, Oct. 19.

Marion Cotillard Insists She's Not "Dark Knight Rises" Villain, Explains Role! 


Once upon a time, we all thought that Marion Cotillard would play Talia Al Ghul, the vengeful daughter of Liam Neeson's Ra's Al Ghul, in the third and final "Batman" flick, "The Dark Knight Rises," from director Christopher Nolan.

But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via The Huffington Post), Cotillard admits she's one of the good guys. Should we believe her?

According to Warner Bros' press release on Cotillard's character named Miranda Tate, she's "a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father's philanthropic endeavors for Gotham."

So she's fascinated with the Wayne Enterprises, and she's an agent of change? Sounds like a morally dark character to me. But, we all have to wait until July 20 when "The Dark Knight Rises" arrives in theaters to find out if Cotillard's Miranda is a villain or not. For now, don't call her a baddie!

"Dark Shadows" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Johnny Depp and Tim Burton Get? 


If you are to believe the marketing campaign behind “Dark Shadows,” you would be led into thinking that the film is campy in the grand tradition of “The Addams Family.” But that’s not the case. “Dark Shadows,” while it has some semblance of camp, is not silly and treats its supernatural plotline with equal parts fun and thrills.


Based on the ABC television show from the 1960s created by Dan Curtis, the film version is an old-school gothic thriller with a twist. And no one can effectively mix gothic and camp together better than director Tim Burton and his muse, Johnny Depp. Read More...

Will "Kick-Ass" Sequel Kicks Its Way to Theaters Near You? Soon? 


First, the good news -- Universal is in talks with writer/director Matthew Vaughn to make and distribute "Kick-Ass 2" according to The Hollywood Reporter. I totally dug the original film based on the Mark Millar-John Romita Jr. mini-series directed by Vaughn and starring Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Nicolas Cage, and the ever so memorable, Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit Girl. The first film was produced and distributed by Lionsgate and now, Universal wants some of that "Kick-Ass" mojo!

Now, here's the bad news -- Vaughn is only producing the sequel. Awwww...

The director has a great eye for drama and action (witness his last film, "X-Men: First Class," heck I even enjoyed "Stardust," and of course, "Layer Cake") so it saddens me to report that Vaughn is giving the directing reins to Jeff Wadlow, the guy who gave us "Never Back Down." I know, right?

But Vaughn wrote the script, at least, and it's a hodge podge of the current comic mini-series and its spin-off "Hit Girl." According to THR, the Hit Girl" storyline will be the first act of the movie.

So that's the better news -- more Hit Girl! Yay!
