Official ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Plot Synopsis Released

Marvel has released the official plot synopsis for its upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age Of Ultron, sequel to the highly praised The Avengers.

It appears that crazed robotic entity Ultron will be a side-effect of a Tony Stark project gone wrong, and he will be voiced by none other than the enigmatic James Spader. Along with Spader, Earth’s mightiest heroes will include Evans’ Captain America, Downey’s Iron Man, Ruffalo’s Hulk, Hemsworth’s Thor, Renner’s Hawkeye and Johansson’s Black Widow with additional support from (ex?) S.H.I.E.L.D operatives. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will also be seen onscreen, in the form of illusive …

Leaked ‘Hateful Eight’ Trailer Teases Quentin Tarantino’s Latest

There was a time at the very beginning of 2014 when it seemed like the world would never see The Hateful Eight brought to life. The first project from filmmaker Quentin Tarantino since Django Unchained suffered from an early script leak near the end of 2013 that frustrated the Pulp Fiction mastermind to such an extreme he was ready to walk away from the movie altogether. Several months later, following a live reading of the leaked script that was well received, Tarantino brought the project back to life and announced plans to film in early 2015.

Fast forward to early …

‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Has A Sexual Awakening (And A Missing Mom)

White Bird In A Blizzard serves as the third film to star Shailene Woodley in the last year. It is also the third adaptation the former Secret Life Of The American Teenager star has appeared in during that same time. I’m not sure if she likes books, or if she feels the stories in them are better told on the silver screen, but either way, there is a new film on the way that is sure to give all the feels.

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, …

Kate Mara Claims New ‘Fantastic Four’ Will Not Be Based On Existing Comic Book Mythology

The last set of Fantastic Four films were far from cinematic treasures, but they had their roots firmly planted in the world of comics. Considering the fact we now live in a world flooded with comic-related films, one might think it a given that the new Fantastic Four franchise would do the same. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case.

Actress Kate Mara, who is currently set to play Sue Storm in director Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, recently revealed in an interview the new franchise may be unlike anything fans of the comic series have ever …

‘Conjuring’ Spin-Off ‘Annabelle’ Set For October Release

For the majority of 2014 I have been quietly obsessing over the fact that October has very few horror films scheduled for release, despite the fact it’s statistically one of the best times of the year for thrills and chills to debut on the silver screen. Thankfully, the house that James Wan built, or at least the crazy little doll that resides within it, have saved the day.

According to Variety, New Line has set an October 3 release date for The Conjuring spin-off known as Annabelle. No plot information has been released, but we believe the film …

‘All Is By My Side’ Trailer: Andre 3000 Is A Pretty Convincing Jimi Hendrix

XLrator Media has released the first trailer for Jimi: All Is By My Side.

We have known that Andre 3000 would be portraying rock legend Jimi Hendrix on the big screen for some time, but footage and images from the film have been few and far between. We saw one clip of a performance sequence earlier this year, but even after the film’s initial festival premiere promotion (and word on distribution) was quiet. This week, finally, that changed when the first teaser trailer became available.

Most biopics focus on the entirety of someone’s life, or at least their career, …
