The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Previews 10 Seconds Of Footage

With only six months until the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, excitement and anticipation is starting to grow for the sequel film. A few weeks ago, Lionsgate released portrait images of the cast of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and now they’ve released a teaser preview of the film’s upcoming teaser trailer.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire teaser trailer will be released on Sunday, April 14th, during the MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Rebel Wilson (who is rumored to be joining The Hunger Games: Mockingjay). It’s a short promo that just introduces Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as the winners of the 74th Hunger Games to District 12, their home district.


Jurassic Park 3D Gets An Honest Trailer

In 1993 Steven Spielberg’s dinosaur adventure Jurassic Park terrorized audiences worldwide, and caused many of us to spend an entire summer in the welcoming darkness of a movie theater. Through ubiquitous 3D conversion in movies is way past annoying and tiresome, the idea of Jurassic Park 3D, which opens this Friday, April 5th, is pretty freaking exciting. The folks over at Screen Junkies have even seen fit to give it the Honest Trailer treatment.


Will The Guardians Of The Galaxy Face Off Against The Controller?

ControllerAs recent casting news emerges about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy feature film, speculation has turned to who the villain will be in the superhero team-up movie. There have been many clues pointing to Thanos, who was teased after the credits of The Avengers, but according to some inside sources, Marvel is looking to spring Thanos in The Avengers 2 instead.

Latino Review says their sources point to The Controller as the Guardians of the Galaxy’s main foe. The Controller is the mind-controlling Marvel supervillain. He has frequently run up against Iron Man, Justin Hammer, War Machine, and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Jasper Sitwell and Maria Hill, so it would be interesting to see how The Controller would be introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Controller was born Basil Sandhurst, an electro-mechanical and chemical research scientist who was obsessed with controlling the world around him. He was prone to violent fits of rage before a lab explosion crippled him. His brother Vincent fitted him with a super-strong exoskeleton, powered by cerebral energy.


Oblivion IMAX Poster Shows Tom Cruise Staring Off Into The Abyss

For a movie like Oblivion, you’re either with it or you’re not. It’s looking to be the first major blockbuster of 2013 that doesn’t involve James Franco wearing a top hat. So even if this isn’t your particular brand of sci-fi tea, you’ll have to put up with it as it rakes in all that Tom Cruise cash that Jack Reacher forgot to keep earning.

A lot of that money is going to come from the Oblivion‘s IMAX release, which the film was pretty much intended for, as this featurette explained. So it makes absolute sense that it would also get an IMAX-exclusive poster, as seen above. A poster that I’m sure inspired many people to holler out, “Jump! Jump!”


Prometheus Co-Writer Will Reboot Disney’s The Black Hole

The Black HoleYears before Paul W.S. Anderson jumped the proverbial shark with his mostly stellar second feature, Event Horizon, Disney did the whole “we found a possibly empty ship floating around a black hole in the middle of space” story when they released the aptly titled The Black Hole in 1979, cashing in on the cinematic space adventure craze that Star Wars revolutionized. Well, even though one good turn does not, in fact, always deserve another, one is coming anyway.

Walt Disney Pictures is planning a reboot/remake of The Black Hole, and have signed screenwriter Jon Spaihts to rewrite a screenplay that was first worked on by Travis Beacham, who co-wrote the highly anticipated Pacific Rim with Guillermo Del Toro. Spaihts was also partially responsible for another sci-fi film with ridiculously lofty expectations attached to it: Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Luckily, we know that Damon Lindelof had a lot to do with fucking that up, so perhaps Spaihts’ talent will shine just a little brighter for this project.

Speaking of bright, however, Spaihts was also responsible for the “these bright lights are actually aliens” thriller The Darkest Hour, so we’re keeping our reservations stockpiled on this one.


In the Flesh Will Debut On BBC America This Summer

In the FleshNow that The Walking Dead is in between seasons — instead of just in between different halves of a single season — we’re going to need something to keep our undead fixation in check. And while we’ve given quite a bit of coverage to the recently completed BBC zombie miniseries In the Flesh, the show hasn’t actually aired in America yet. But instead of throwing a bunch of tea in the river and complaining about it, we’ve just been waiting patiently until word dropped on when we’d get to see the show ourselves. I may have thrown a pack of tea on the ground though. Just one.

BBC America announced today that In the Flesh will shamble onto American soil on August 3, 2013, four fucking months from now. I suppose I could be grateful that the show is playing here at all, and that I’m not forced to go down some dangerous back alley — i.e. one of many different websites — in order to get a bootleg copy of the airings. But I’m still a tad peeved about it. I guess I need some kind of…anger management, right? Oh wait, the show is about zombie rehabilitation, not anger management. Scratch that.
