The original ‘Avengers 2‘ trailer plan was that the first footage would debut on October 28, immediately following that night’s episode of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ on ABC. Not 24 hours after that announcement, a bootleg copy of the trailer leaked online. Disney and Marvel did the right thing and, instead of fighting to keep the bootlegs off the internet for a week, they pushed up the reveal and released an HD copy online. It didn’t hurt the trailer (it still broke all kinds of records), but it did hurt that the planned synergy. ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ was primed for a big ratings boost and the trailer leak hurt that. But, Marvel’s got some new plans. Plans that will make fans happy as well as give ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ that boost it needed.
In a press release, Marvel said a hearty “thank you” to all the fans who watched (and watched and watched) the ‘Avengers 2′ trailer. And, because, as they say, “the best way to say thanks is to give you more,” they’re giving us two exclusive looks at ‘Avengers 2′ over the next two weeks.
First, after next week’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ they will debut exclusive footage from ‘Avengers 2′ in addition to the new trailer. Then, on November 4 at 9:00pm, Marvel will air ‘Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!’ on ABC with even more ‘Avengers 2′ footage. That’s a lot of footage!

Few films possess the skin-crawling nightmare sensibility of Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” a claustrophobic classic that has burrowed its way into the minds of moviegoers for decades now. Scott has since dabbled in a slew of genres—everything from gangster yarns to swords and sandals epics—and yet, some argue that he’s never come close to capturing the sinister perfection on display in his landmark 1979 sci-fi picture. For those who consider themselves “Alien” obsessives—and lord knows they are legion—we have here an in-depth interview from 1979 about the film’s conception and production, featuring detailed interviews with the cast and crew (via Eyes On Cinema).
There is something truly magical about John Wick. Maybe it’s the surprise factor of heading into the theater and having no idea that we would be treated to one of the best action movies of the year.
Perhaps, it’s watching a movie star we quite enjoy here at Movie Fanatic, Keanu Reeves, doing his best work — as an actor and as an action hero — since that little independent movie called The Matrix?
Who cares why, this thing is bloody awesome.
When we saw the initial teaser for Disney’s ‘Into the Woods‘ movie, the thing that was missing from our first peek at the upcoming musical was the actual, you know, musical part. But thanks to this new featurette on the film, we can hear bits and pieces of the songs from the adaptation of the classic musical, from the mouths of stars like Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick.
While we still don’t have a full trailer yet, we do have this new featurette, featuring interviews with the cast of ‘Into the Woods,’ the new musical film from Rob Marshall. Marshall also helmed ‘Chicago,’ so he knows a thing or two about bringing a classic stage musical to the big screen, and we’re confident in his ability to take this one to some great places.
In addition to interviews with the cast, you’ll also hear them singing bits of the songs penned by Steven Sondheim, like “I Wish,” and Meryl Streep’s witch character singing “Stay With Me.” Fans of the musical should be pleased, but newcomers will also hopefully find something equally intriguing here, too.

In case you somehow missed the news, DC Comics and Warner Bros. have some pretty big plans from now until 2020, when every comic book character in the DC canon will hit the big screen in one way or another. But of course, they’ll be running up against Marvel, who have not only had a few years head start, but are the envy of Hollywood, showing how to build a blockbuster brand not just at the multiplex, but on television too. And when it comes to DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, he’s got mad respect for his rivals.
“I love what Marvel does. I’m a huge fan,” he told Buzzfeed, but he’s quick to mention that DC will be taking a “different approach” when it comes to how their characters will co-exist (or not) between their big screen and small screen iterations.
Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Chris Pine are just a few of the Into the Woods cast members who take us inside the making of the Broadway musical that is hitting the big screen this holiday season in a new featurette from Disney.
