With fans eagerly awaiting the return of the long running fantasy drama series 'Game of Thrones' on April 12th, HBO have now released the first trailer from the upcoming fifth season of the George R.R. Martin adaptation.
The two-minute trailer sheds some light on the upcoming plot twists and reveals some of the new characters, including cast memebrss Alexander Siddig, Toby Sebastian, Nell Tiger Free, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Jessica Henwick, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, DeObia Oparei, Jonathan Pryce, Hannah Waddingham, Enzo Cilenti, Michael Condron, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje who join the cast for the first time.
This weekend, 'Game of Thrones' hits select IMAX theatres in the US, with two episodes from the fourth season; 'The Watchers on the Wall' and 'The Children' remastered utilising IMAX digital technology.
Just as with 'Terminator: Genisys', Disney have stumped up a sweet $4 million in cash to expose the follow up to 'The Avengers', the second highest grossing film of all time, to over 110 million viewers tuned in to this years Superbowl.
Whilst the 30 second spot for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is a little light on for footage that hasn't been shown in previously released trailers, the rapid fire spot makes for a pretty convincing argument to hand over your cash at your nearest multiplex come release. Promising to shake up the formula for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and follow up to the game-changing events of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier 'Age of Ultron' comes with very high set of expectations indeed.
With a viewership of over 110 million people worldwide, a spot on the Superbowl can be worth its weight in marketing gold, even at the cost of a sweet $4 million USD. Still, by the looks of this impressive 30 second mini-trailer for this summer's 'Terminator: Genisys', they (and we) got their money's worth.
Set parallel to the events of the original 1984 'Terminator', 'Genisys' sees Arnold Schwarzenegger returns for the fourth time as the T-800, joined by 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' star Jason Clarke as mankind's savior John Connor, while 'Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke will portray the young Sarah Connor.
Universal Pictures has released the trailer for Ted 2, the Seth MacFarlane film featuring a crude, yet entertaining teddy bear. In addition to Ted and Mark Wahlberg as his trusty sidekick, the film also features Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Jessica Barth, Dennis Haysbert - and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reportedly has a brief cameo.
The original Ted movie became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time, grossing more than $550 million worldwide.
Ted 2 is scheduled for release on June 26.
Sony have moved to replace the universally disliked Music Unlimited service across their range of PlayStation, network and mobile devices with the universally loved Spotify service in a new partnership that brings the two company together for the first time.
In announcing the imminent release of Spotify for PS4, the company confirmed that gamers can stream from the collection of 30 million songs and 1.5 billion Spotify playlists in-game along with the rather vague promise of "other great features that will be available exclusively through Spotify on PlayStation Music".
Sony have stated that the new service will launch in 41 markets initially on PS4 and PS3, as well as Xperia smartphones and tablets.
In something that feels like it has come truly out of nowhere, Netflix has teased its new original series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The new series is a prequel to David Wain's 2001 comedy, which has a huge list of stars attached to it, as well as an iconic 80s America look to it.
As for the list of actors, check this out: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Michael Ian Black, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Ken Marino, Zak Orth, David Hyde Pierce, Joe LoTruglio, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Michael Showalter, and Molly Shannon.
We will see Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp released with an 8-episode limited run. Also, because of the sheer size of the cast, only a few of them will be used per episode, in a similar matter to how Netflix handled Arrested Development. There's currently no release date for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to finish this movie five months earlier.
In an event that rarely occurs in Hollywood, Paramount Pictures has decided to move the fifth installment of the long running Tom Cruise spy franchise 'Mission Impossible' forward by a whole 5 months. The initially announced release date of December 25th has now changed to July 31.
Hemled by Christopher McQuarrie who previously directed Cruise in 2013's 'Jack Reacher'), the film reprises Jeremy Renner as Agent Brandt, Simon Pegg as Benji and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell. New to the film are Alec Baldwin, Simon McBurney and Rebecca Ferguson. With this newly minted released date, look for marketing including the first theatrical teaser trailer to begin ramping up soon.
Late last year, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Jurassic World' star Chris Pratt passed on the role of the video game adaptation of Sony's 'Uncharted', which I thought was rather curious at the time. Now, it's a little clearer why.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Disney, who now own the rights to the 'Indiana Jones' franchise after purchasing Lucasfilm in 2012, are not only looking at bringing the franchise back, but are looking at casting Chris Pratt in the role once occupied by 72 year old Harrison Ford.
Deadline do make the point that "while things are very early", it sure looks like we might be seeing some more 'Indiana Jones' adventures soon - and hearkening back to the classic Hollywood serials that the franchise is based on, I think this can only be a great thing.
Just 8 years on from the release of 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer', which starred a pre-'Captain America' Chris Evans, Jessica Alba and Ioan Gruffudd, Twentieth Century Fox have completely reset the franchise, with the release of this years 'The Fantastic Four' from 'Chronicle' director John Trank.
The studio have now released their first look at the film, with a rather generous 2 minute trailer that I gotta admit doesn't really make me excited in the same way as, say 'Jurassic World' or 'Terminator: Genisys'. Still, take a look and see for yourself.
'The Fantastic Four' hits screens worldwide in August, and also in 3D if you're that way inclined.
The 'Ghostbusters' sequel/ remake/ reboot has been a long time in the making, but the project took a huge leap forward this morning, with the full cast revealed for the all-female reboot.
A reversal of the original cast which featured Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, the Hollywood Reporter has revealed the full cast, which includes comedians Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy.
The 'Ghostbusters' reboot will shoot in New York mid this year and is aiming for a 2016 release.
