Guardians of the Galaxy is rapidly becoming my most anticipated film of the year (and will probably take the top slot once Godzilla is released). Everything about it just seems so refreshing and new compared to the rest of the Marvel universe, and after seeing the tone and expectations change quite a bit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier I think it’s safe to say that Guardians will deliver on the promised originality. Everything we’ve seen so far as well seems to reaffirm it, such as these new photos shot during production of the film. Hit the jump to check them out.
I have to admit, I have been so uneasy about Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever since its announcement. The man didn’t do much to ease our terror either, with early announcements naming the film as simply Ninja Turtles and altering their origin to be space aliens that happen to look like turtles. Bay himself was quick to reign in these concepts after the fan backlash and the film went back into quiet pre-production. Now we have a better look at what to expect when the film drops this year, and I’m guardedly optimistic. Hit the jump to check out some photos.
It’s just one big day for news on The Dark Knight Rises. To go with those gorgeous banners posted earlier we now have two new TV spots that ran last night as well as some new photos, and there’s actually some new footage in them. Hit the jump to check them out.
In the world of today, mostly thanks to the accessibility of the internet and digital technology, you can find spy photos from film sets all over the world no matter how “secretive” the production is. Just look at all the stuff coming out of The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers; if those movies were made pre-internet, almost no one would see all the photos and videos we have.
That’s what makes these shots from the production of Return of the Jedi so cool; it’s a situation where spy photos involved actual spying. Because there was no internet, it wouldn’t be widely known that “Blue Harvest” was the codename for Return of the Jedi during filming. All people in the area knew was that it was a sci-fi film, and they decided to investigate it for fun. They hit pay dirt. Hit the jump for some of these awesome photos and head over to The Prop Store to see the rest of the shots and read the full story, which is utterly riveting.
Oh man, it’s a good weekend to be a nerd. So far this weekend we’ve been treated to Batman rocking out on a mic, our first look at Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel, and our first look at Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises. Now, perhaps not wanting to be left out of the fun, Sony Pictures has gone ahead and put up a bunch of super high-resolution shots from the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man. Check them out after the jump.
Glad I stumbled upon this post over at The Chive, because it’s right up my alley. I don’t know what it is but I just enjoy looking at stuff like this, especially when the actors/characters look SO out of place without the visual effects to back them up. Hit the jump for some of my favorite shots, and head over to The Chive to check out even more!
