10 hidden easter eggs in Captain America: The First Avenger

Ever since the release of the first X-Men movie back in 2000, there has been an intelligent attempt to build up the layers of the Marvel film universe. With thousands of characters created throughout the years, and millions of people now familiar with the heroes that populate the Marvel universe, the creators of the modern Marvel movies, as well as the executives running Marvel Studios, are trying to appease fans by giving them quick cameos or mentions of characters and equipment from the comic books.

Several studios eyeing a Splinter Cell movie

No surprise here but Hollywood studios are interested in picking up the screen rights to Ubisoft's Splinter Cell video game franchise. Endorsed by military spy thriller novelist Tom Clancy, the games have sold over 22 million copies and also been spun off into their own book series.

Attack the Block director attached to Snow Crash movie

Hollywood has been trying for 20 years to try and make a movie from Neal Stephenson's cyberpunk novel Snow Crash. So far they haven't succeeded, but Paramount Pictures is hoping that Attack the Block director Joe Cornish is the man to make it happen.

For those unfamiliar with Stephenson's book, it describes a future where mega-corps wield the power of nations, tricked-out skaters hitch rides on highways and people jack into a virtual reality where they can be the heroes and heroines in their own online worlds. Snow Crash is a lot more than that including a thriller, an action story and contains some sly commentary about the future direction that our society seems to be headed.

Listen to all 15 tracks from The Dark Knight Rises

One of the factors that can make a good movie become great, and a great film become a classic, is the strength of its soundtrack. The 2009 release of The Dark Knight featured an unusual team-up between two A-list Hollywood composers, James Newton Howard and Hanz Zimmer. For The Dark Knight Rises, just Zimmer is returning to score the three-quel. And if you didn't want to wait until closer to the picture's July 20 release date before you could hear what the composer had made, here's your early opportunity to hear tracks from The Dark Knight Rises.

J.J. Abrams Bad Robot develops two new movies

Fox may have cancelled Alcatraz but newly minted superstar producer/director/screenwriter J.J. Abrams will not rest until he has his own television network channel, or his own movie studio -- or both!

Paramount is J.J.'s home and the first place he takes new projects that Bad Robot, his production company, develops. The studio has agreed to develop two new feature film concepts, one a science fiction/thriller and the other a straight thriller.

The Prometheus movie viral is continuing

If you stuck through the end credits of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, did you see the question "What is 10-11-12"? in there? If not, the answer to the question is delivered in part by a newly discovered viral website promoting the world of Prometheus, and a new video featuring Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland.

 

If you ask me, it looks like a moment or two before Weyland stepped out into the audience to deliver his TED 2023 talk.

Christopher Nolan says no to fourth Batman movie

He may be the man who redeemed Batman to movie audiences but don't expect Christopher Nolan to make a fourth Bat-film. At least, that's what he is saying today.

The director of The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight and Batman Begins, Nolan was front and center at a Producers Guild conference held yesterday in L.A. Up onstage with his producer-wife Emma Thomas, Nolan fielded questions from the emcee and audience members, several of which were high profile studio executives. (Reportedly Jeff Robinov, Warner Bros.' president of producer, was also sitting in the audience.)

Madagascar 3 defeats Prometheus at the box office

Cartoon animals bested outer space meanies this weekend at the box office. In less sillier terms, what I mean is that Paramount/DreamWorks' Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted became the new number one film, bowing to a $60.3 million dollar opening. In second place was 20th Century Fox's Prometheus which opened to a neat and tidy $50 million dollars.

It's a good sign for Madagascar 3 and a fair reception for Prometheus, an R-rated film. The real telling of whether either film will be a financial success should come in their second weekend out.

Dropping to third place is Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, with $23 million (total so far: $98.5m.)

Review: Prometheus

Director Ridley Scott returns to the universe he helped create in Alien, the 1979 science fiction horror classic. Those fans of Alien that have analyzed the development of that film know about the mercurial, ever-changing course that its production took, and how a disagreement over the movie’s budget nearly forced Scott to scrap plans to build the set for Alien’s greatest reveal, that of the fossilized creature sitting in its pilot’s chair onboard its crashed vessel. Without that set and creature, the Space Jockey, there would never have been a Prometheus, the sidequel/prequel Scott has now made.

Would Ryan Gosling come back in a Drive sequel?

James Cameron figured it out back in 1986: just add an extra letter to the title of the first one and things will be all good. Crime novelist James Sallis is following the Aliens template with his latest novel, Driven, a sequel to Drive, which was made into a movie that starred Ryan Gosling and released last year. If you haven't seen Drive, you should; it's really good, and Gosling is great in it as the stunt driver-sometimes-getaway-driver. It's also brilliantly directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

Early Prometheus reviews begin to leak

While Prometheus won't open stateside until June 8, today was the opening day for the movie in France and several Scandinavian countries. Thanks to that technical invention that's called the internet, the first people to watch Prometheus were writing up their reviews and publishing them on several fansites. Shortly thereafter followed the trade magazines like Variety and The Hollywood Reporter with their own views on the sci-fi film.

So what are people thinking of Prometheus? If you look at the professional critics, they are finding things to both commend and to criticize.

Men in Black III beats The Avengers, becomes new box office champ

With a ten year gap between sequels it was anyone's guess whether audiences would check out Men in Black III, especially considering that Marvel's The Avengers has earned half-a-billion dollars domestically in the past four weeks. Yet that's precisely what people did: Men in Black III is the new number one movie at the box office, dethroning The Avengers in its fourth weekend out.

Six new character posters for The Dark Knight Rises

There is now two months left until The Dark Knight Rises ushers its way into movie theaters. With the home stretch for the movie's marketing rapidly approaching, Warner Bros. has released two sets of character posters for the film, one for North Americans and the other for those in the United Kingdom.

It's interesting to theorize why the marketing approaches for the domestic and UK audiences requires one Batman movie poster to be rain-swept and the other in snow falling. Was there demographic research done that said audiences in England would respond better to the next Dark Knight movie if it had snow in it? And why am I wondering so much about this thing?

Trailer: The Master

Paul Thomas Anderson, the guy who wrote and directed There Will Be Blood, Magnolia, Boogie Nights, Punch-Drunk Love, now returns after a five year absence with The Master. PTA's latest is about a man (Joaquin Phoenix) who, in the 1950s, comes up with a new "religion" that begins to catch on with devout followers. That's the official logline being told, but what every site says right after the official blurb is that Anderson's The Master is a telling of the start of scientology and how L. Ron Hubbard created it.

Trailer: Skyfall

The first trailer (a teaser) for Skyfall has debuted online via the official James Bond website. After watching said trailer, what can be seen in it matches perfectly with the leaked trailer description report heard about last month.

My first impression of what director Sam Mendes is doing is a good one. This has the promise of a heavier Bond adventure. The exotic world locales look spendid thanks to the brilliant cinematography of Roger Deakins and Daniel Craig looks like he's in impressive 007 form.
