'The Avengers' LEGO Poster

Marvel Studios and LEGO have revealed a special The Avengers poster recreated with the block toys to not only promote the new movie hitting theaters May 4th, but also to remind everyone of the special line of toys that will be hitting store shelves in connection with the film. 

Imagine, I could hold Liam Helms...eh hem...Thor in the palm of my hand.  I can make Tony Stark fly and land on my roof (never to come down); hide my pinky finger behind Captain America's shield; stomp on Hulk (or Incredible Hawk); take Hawkeye's arrow when he shoots it at me; and cool Nick's Fury.  Ok, the last one was bad, sorry, not really.

Would you like to see a full movie (or at least a trailer) featuring the tiny superheroes?  I say why not, they did it with Darth Vader in a cafeteria. 

Check out the poster along with it’s original look.

Mirror Mirror Movie Review and New Images


Mirror Mirror delivers plenty of laughs and some fantastic Tarsem magic.

Director Tarsem Singh is a visionary, his directorial eye is artistic, and inspirational. He makes even a simple back drop leap off the screen. Everything he touches is more painting in motion than simple green screen. And when you pair this artistic flair with a fairytale you get pure cinematic gold.

Mirror Mirror is a very classical telling of Snow White with a new infusion of life. You know the story, lovely family, Queen dies after giving birth to a beautiful baby, leaving the king to raise her alone. The king  remarries, and then he too dies leaving his beloved daughter in the hands of her stepmother. Snow grows into a beautiful young woman, and with the Queen’s vanity she cannot allow anyone to be prettier, and so Snow must fall. There’s dwarves, there’s a handsome prince, but there’s also a few twists.






The once prosperous kingdom has fallen into poverty and disrepair as all of their money goes to feed the Queen’s ego and pay for the opulence she craves. And worse, the kingdom, and therefore the Queen is broke, so she's in need of a new sugar daddy. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a Julia Roberts fan, but she works here as our villain, since our evil Queen isn’t so much evil as she is bitchy. She’s more petulant child than she is evil sorceress. In fact our Queen doesn’t cast a single spell, instead she whines to her magic mirror, and though the mirror tries to point out her rash actions and high price of her desires it gets the job done.

 Or atleast it tries to, but Snow gets in the way quite a bit. Lily Collins steps into the role of Snow White, and although she fits the classic Disney role for the look, this princess has more spunk. Sure she starts off a little meek and mild, but once she sees the state of her beloved kingdom, she steps into action, and that’s where the flick gets really fun.

Armie Hammer plays the spoiled prince to perfection. And who knew Armie could do comedy? His puppy is not only hilarious but I can’t think of anyone who could have done it better. He plays each aspect of the prince to perfection whether he’s being a privileged ass, a heroic savior, or needy puppy. Few actors could have seamlessly pulled off the feat without being absolutely ridiculous, though Armie flawlessly does.

The dwarves have always been a part of the core of the Snow White story, and here is no difference. They play up the light hearted and tongue in cheek aspects. And the accordion stilt work is magnificent and sets them apart from every other incarnation before them. These guys are not whistling while they work, though they do poke fun at mining being a suitable job, instead they’re sword wielding “giants” that emulate Robin Hood at Snow’s insistence.

There is no huntsman, the poison apple only makes a cameo and don’t expect to hear the Queen ask her mirror who the fairest of them all is, but Mirror Mirror is a great adaptation of Snow White. The cast works in harmony to make the old tale feel fresh and new, each finds moments to shine without casting shadows over the story. The use of CG isn’t overly done. Tarsem finds clever ways to use it.

Mirror Mirror isn’t a dark movie, instead it is a light hearted comedy with plenty of laughs. It is a family film enjoyable for children and adults of all ages alike. Mirror Mirror opens nationwide today.

SYNOPSIS:
Inspired by the perennial New York Times bestseller of the same name, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING is a hilarious and heartfelt big screen comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood. 

Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules and dance show star Evan find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary, struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler.  Photographer Holly is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is.  And rival food truck chefs Rosie and Marco’s surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?    
                
A kaleidoscopic comedy as universal as it is unpredictable, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING finds humor and uplift in all the unexpected trials and triumphs of welcoming a child into the world.  The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.

Dark Horse To Release Mignola & Golden's JOE GOLEM Deluxe Edition!‏


DARK HORSE TO RELEASE MIKE MIGNOLA
AND CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN’S NEW NOVEL
JOE GOLEM IN A DELUXE HARDCOVER EDITION!

MARCH 29, SALT LAKE CITY, UT–In conjunction with the release of Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden’s latest collaboration earlier this week, and Mignola’s appearance at this weekend’s World Horror Convention, Dark Horse is pleased to announce a limited-edition hardcover release of Joe Golem and the Drowning City.

After a séance gone horribly wrong, strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits abduct the aging psychic Orlov the Conjuror, sending his young assistant Molly McHugh racing through the canals of a submerged Manhattan. As Molly flees her captors through a sunken city full of scavengers, her one hope comes in the form of two strange men: Simon Church, a Victorian-era detective kept alive by clockwork gears and magic, and his assistant, Joe, whose mysterious past is hinted at in dreams of stone and witches.

“Joe and his world are made up of all those things I love: crumbling ruins, strange Victorian devices, and unknowable supernatural forces,” said cocreator Mike Mignola. “These are the very same elements that went into the creation of Hellboy, but here hammered into different shape and relocated to New York City. Hellboy is Joe’s country cousin.”
The deluxe limited-edition collection features multiple illustrations by Hellboy artist Mike Mignola, as well as a signature plate signed by both Mignola and Golden, and is presented in a handsome slipcase. Additionally, only the Dark Horse edition will feature the previously unpublished story “Joe Golem and the Copper Girl.
The deluxe hardcover edition of Joe Golem and the Drowning City will be released in an extremely limited edition of only 1,000 copies on September 26, and will retail for $99.99.

House At The End Of The Street Trailer

Before Jennifer Lawrence picked up a bow and won the Hunger Games she starred in a small thriller called House at the End of the Street, where I bet she wishes she had an arrow, heck even a sharp stick would have probably been helpful.

The trailer plays backwards, from Lawrence's character Elissa escaping, to something unseen tormenting her, to a happy shiny time when the place looked normal. Bit by bit the story unfolds, but there's still plenty of questions left unanswered.


HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET
Release: September 21, 2012
Director: Mark Tonderai
Writer: Screenplay by David Loucka, Story by Jonathan Mostow
Cast: Elisabeth Shue, Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Gil Bellows
Producers: Aaron Ryder, Peter Block, Hal Lieberman
Executive Producers: Steve Samuels, Anthoni Visconsi II, Dominic Visconsi Jr., Allison Silver, Sonny Mallhi, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley
Run Time: 101 minutes
Rating: PG-13

Synopsis: 
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; X-Men: First Class, Winter’s Bone) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared - leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take), as the sole survivor.  Against Sarah's wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan - and the closer they get, the deeper they're all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.

Wrath of the Titans Final Trailers and Clips

Wrath of the Titans is set to hit theaters on friday. Check out the latest trailers and featurettes to hold you over for the big release.

Am I the only one that feels mild trepidation for this? Or think that Sam Worthington desperately needs a haircut? Don't get me wrong the movie's effects look good, and I love a good man in a skirt flick more than is really sane, but I have so many complaints about the first one, that the sequel has to be phenomenal to wipe away its bad memory.

Wrath of the Titans hits theaters March 30, 2012.

WRATH OF THE TITANS Synopsis : A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) --the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)--is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus' godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans' strength grows stronger as Zeus' remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
