They say ‘a picture is worth 1,000 words,’ and let’s be honest: when it comes to movies, they’re just more fun to look at. It’s in that spirit that we’ve gone ahead and wrangled new photos from several upcoming movie projects, including the superhero reboot The Amazing Spider-Man, Michael Bay’s true-life crime caper Pain and Gain, and a first look at Freaky Deaky, the latest onscreen adaptation of author Elmore Leonard’s work.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Earlier this year the Spider-Man reboot managed to make an impression with its full theatrical trailer, which was not nearly as terrible as so many had prophesied it would be. While some people are still scratching their heads, asking themselves why the Spider-Man movies seem to be ‘starting over,’ others have embraced this new version of the Web-Slinger’s tale – as well as the actor now playing him (Social Network star Andrew Garfield). The new costume, however, remains ...

Woody Allen will have released at least one movie (on some occasions, even two) on a consecutive annual basis for the past 35 years, once To Rome with Love hits theaters this summer. Regardless of your feelings about the quality of the man’s output overall, you have to give him props for sheer dedication and commitment to his art.
To Rome with Love previously went under such names as Nero Fiddled and The Bop Decameron, before Allen settled on a comparatively generic (but more universally-relatable) title. As you will see with the actual trailer, though, there’s no mistaking this film for being anything but the Woodmeister’s handiwork.
Similar to every Allen production released over the past several decades, To Rome with Love features a star-studded cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Ellen Page (Inception), Alec ...

By now, the world at large has had a chance to take in the trailer for Total Recall, a re-interpretation of the famous Philip K. Dick short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” that’s also being billed as a partial remake of the 1990 film by Robocop director Paul Verhoeven, famously starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone.
Reaction to Total Recall (2012) has been mixed; some fans like the aesthetic of the sci-fi world director Len Wiseman (Underworld, Die Hard 4) has created, while others are still bemoaning the prospect of Hollywood recycling yet another beloved property. Then there are those (latecomers) who are newly shocked to learn that someone is ‘remaking a ...

Writer/director Gavin Hood just recently commenced with production on his adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s beloved sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, and we now have photographic proof that… well, at least the entrance to the set for the film’s zero-gravity Battle Room has been built.
By comparison, we already have a teaser trailer for Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi book, The Host – which also began lensing just a while ago – and, today, we can add yet another still frame featuring starlet Saoirse Ronan to the small pile of released marketing material.
Producer Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Fringe) has posted the following statement and picture on the official Ender’s Game movie blog:
If you think regular school is tough, try it in a rotating space station. And by the way, do you ...

After having spent the last year partially stalled in development, a cinematic adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s New York Times best-selling, young adult, fantasy-adventure literature series, The Mortal Instruments, is making some serious progress.
Just over the past several weeks, the project has officially snagged a new director in Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid), been locked down to begin production later this summer – and now, has an official U.S. theatrical release date to boot.
We now know (via Box Office Mojo) that Sony has set The Mortal Instruments to hit theaters in the U.S. on August 23rd, 2013. That’s probably a wise move, as Clare’s source material is not the best-selling monstrosity that other young adult series-turned-blockbusters are (see: Twilight, The Hunger Games). Not to mention, neither of the film’s attached stars – Lily Collins (
