Superman's secret identity may come as a bit of a shock. Watch Now »
They say that if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Just ask the Greek god Prometheus. He played with fire and got burned to the tune of an eternity of birds eating his innards. Some might say there's an object lesson in that.
But Ridley Scott is apparently not one of those people, because according to Variety, the legendary director is proceeding full speed ahead with "Prometheus 2" despite widespread critical derision and fan disappointment with last year's "Prometheus."
At least he'll be doing it with a new writer. Get More »
Even unto its 53rd animated feature film, Disney's not changing the formula — that is, oh-so-loosely basing its cartoon film fare upon the eldest and grimmest of fairy tales and then putting a slappy-happy spin on what might otherwise be considered a pretty dark story.
Such is the case with "Frozen," as this first teaser trailer for the film makes clear.
The movie features Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), a "fearless optimist" setting off to find her cold-hearted sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) and put an end to the cursed endless winter of the kingdom of Arendelle with the help of a mountain fellow named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his little reindeer pal, Sven. Sound familiar?
Well, it's a sorta-kinda redux of Han Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," but you wouldn't know it from this first-glimpse, which is totally centered around a goofy little snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad)... you know, sort of like how the squirrel always got the nut in the similarly snowy "Ice Age" teasers. The scene is cute, though, and that's probably just the point.
Meanwhile, the studio has also released a few teaser images from the film which thankfully show a bit more substance.
"Frozen," co-directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, hits theaters in 3D just before winter, on Nov. 27.
Every movie has a rumor mill, but when your main character is Superman, it naturally becomes a super rumor mill. As anyone who has been following Zack Snyder's film over the past couple of years knows, rarely has there been a film with so many completely random, crazy and unsubstantiated rumors as "Man of Steel."
Which, of course, just made us even more curious to see the movie, if only to find out: Would all of those rumors turn out to be true? Would any of them turn out to be true? Get More »
We don't call this site NextMovie for nothing. We've got news on release dates for two more sequels to "The Amazing Spider-Man."
Sony Pictures is smartly making sure those Spidey rights don't default and slip back to Marvel anytime soon (a la "Daredevil" and sorta with "Ghost Rider," for example). They've got release dates on the schedule for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," of course, plus a second sequel and another one beyond that, running all the way into 2018. Get More »
Cavill, along with director Zack Snyder and co-stars Amy Adams and Michael Shannon, recently sat down with MTV News' Josh Horowitz to discuss what it was like to wear the super-famous, super-tight costume.
"The suit was amazing," Cavill said. "When I put it on for the first time, I didn't see me wearing an outfit, I felt like we were creating Superman in the room. And every time I was on set, people treated me differently when I was in the Superman outfit, and every time I was in it, I felt differently." Get More »
It seems like just yesterday Chris D'Amico and David "Dave" Lizewski were duking it out in 2010's "Kick-Ass," clad in pastel spandex and armed with vicious, vicious words.
Three years later, round two is right in audiences' reach. Yes, "Kick-Ass 2" is prepared to kick some major box office ass when it hits theaters Aug. 16. Dave (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Chris (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and Mindy Macready/Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) all return in the sequel, which is sure to provide eager fans with the same cuckoo bananas action and laughs as its predecessor. Dave, with freshly sharpened skills à la Hit-Girl, has joined the crime-fighting troupe known as Justice Forever. Meanwhile, Chris has his own villainous gang known as The Toxic Mega C**ts. What a visual! Get More »
WARNING: SPOILERS GALORE.
By not simply rolling to "The End," "They all lived happily ever after," etc. after Frodo made a three-pointer chucking The One Ring into Mount Doom, Peter Jackson set a pretty bad precedent in "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." Every time it seemed like all was well and we were fading to credits, another five-minute scene would roll in. Toss in a few Oscars and you've got a bunch of blockbuster directors wanting to add 20 endings to their genre films, too. Get More »
Warner Bros. spent an estimated $225 million to get "Man of Steel" off the ground. For all of the work that went into casting, special effects, storytelling and marketing, it's important not to overlook one crucial element: Henry Cavill's work in the gym!
A couple of decades ago, The Joker famously asked, "Where does he get all of those wonderful toys?" Cavill's first turn wearing Superman's cape has people asking, "How did he get those wonderful pecs?" In a brand new video from The National Guard (of all places), Cavill can be seen sweating it out with big heavy weights. It's a great lesson in hard work, a great instructional on getting into superhero shape and — let's face it — wonderful eye candy for folks who'd prefer to just admire the results of someone else's hard work.
