    No Loki For 'Avengers 2,' Joss Whedon Teases More Details, While Edgar Wright Says Ultron Was Never Part Of 'Ant-Man'

    You know you're dealing with the obsessive, knotty world of comic book movies when merely announcing the title of a movie can send a legion of dedicated super-fans into a speculative frenzy. This was the case when Marvel unveiled the subtitle for their highly anticipated sequel to last year's "The A...

    Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman & Eddie Marsan Go For A Stroll In New 'The World's End' Image

    Something must be in the water (maybe it was the approaching Mayan apocalypse, which never happened), because end-of-the-world comedies are very much in vogue in 2013. There's Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley in "Rapturepalooza," Seth Rogen and co in "The End Of The World," and indie "It's A Dis...

    Review: Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is A Gloriously Enjoyable Mo-Cap Marvel

    Across his 40 year career as Hollywood's most beloved filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has tried his hand at many different things -- the blockbuster thrill ride, the family film, the comedy, the war film, hardcore science-fiction, serious dramas and whatever it was that "The Terminal" was, a diverse range of pictures united by that certain Spielberg je-ne-sais-quoi. But there's something he's never tackled directly himself; the animated film. Sure, he's produced TV cartoons like "Animaniacs," and even the occasional big-screen one, like "An American Tail" and "We're Back," but for the most part, the Bearded One has always preferred live action to...

    Empire Big Screen '11: 'Kill List' Helmer Ben Wheatley's Next Is Edgar Wright-Produced 'Sightseers'

    Comedy 'I, Macrobane' With Nick Frost Will Follow In 2012Perhaps the biggest homegrown hit of Empire Big Screen over the weekend was Ben Wheatley's "Kill List," a low-budget hitman/horror flick from the director of the excellent, terminally underseen crime film "Down Terrace." More than perhaps any other British film that had footage shown, the clips had people talking for much of the weekend, and director Ben Wheatley hit the event on Saturday, along with stars Neil Maskell and MyAnna Buring, to get the buzz going. If you've read our review from SXSW, you'll know that it's a film worth getting very excited about (it even made one member of T...

    Comic-Con '11: John Boyega Says His Performance In 'Attack The Block' Was Influenced By 'The Wire'

    Edgar Wright Says 'Ant-Man' Script Was Handed In This Week & That He & Simon Pegg Will Start Writing Third 'Cornetto' Film Next MonthBelieve, bruv. Riding a massive wave of hype since its world premiere at SXSW in March, Joe Cornish's debut "Attack the Block" has been championed by the geek set and with good reason. Compact, surprisingly complex and just flat out entertaining, the film offers a great twist on the alien invasion movie, placing the action in a council estate in south London and pitting a group of young teens against the vicious invading creatures who are black as night and sport an impressive array of glow in the dark teeth. Mi...

    Watch: Jamie Bell IS Tilda Swinton In First Trailer For 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

    One of the biggest question marks of the year has been Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin." The director's coming off the worst film of his career, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and tackling a comic book that few in the U.S. have heard of, in the performance capture...

    Nifty Teaser Posters Debut For Steven Spielberg & Peter Jackson's 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

    First Trailer To Arrive Tomorrow MorningFor one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, at least everywhere except the U.S, word's been strangely quiet on "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn." Uniting blockbuster giants Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson for the first time (the former's directing, the latter producing), on an adaptation of the massively successful graphic novel series about a Belgian boy detective, his dog Snowy, his best friend, a drunken sea captain, and the adventures they go on, we had a glimpse of a handful of images before Christmas, but little since then. We guess because the film's being re...
