Marvel’s BLACK WIDOW Gets a Super Bowl Spot and Character Posters

Marvel Studios has released a Super Bowl spot for the badass-looking Black Widow movie. The spot offers some explosive new footage from the movie as Scarlett Johansson finds herself up against the new villain Taskmaster. I love what I’ve seen from this movie and I hope that the story ends up being great.

In the film, Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, “confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.”

The move is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War and sees the character travel back to Budapest as she is on the run from the U.S. Government, which is hunting her down because of her actions in Civil War. While in Budapest she reunites with her “family” that consists of Red Guardian, Yelena Belova, and Melina, and they will “go back to where it all started” for a mission, which I assume is the place where the Black Widow program is at.

The film also stars David Harbour as Red Guardian, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, and Rachel Weisz as Melina in action. There’s still no word on who is playing Taskmaster, but we’ll find out!

Black Widow hits theaters on May 1st, 2020. Check out the Super Bowl spot below along with some character posters.

Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: ‘Rooster,’ the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka ‘Goose’.

Christophe Gans Developing New Silent Hill and Fatal Frame Films!

Christophe Gans developing new Silent Hill and Fatal Frame films!

The video game film genre seems to be back on a hot streak in the past few years with the arrivals of Detective Pikachu and the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog. Now French director Christophe Gans has revealed he is ready to return to the world with a new adaptation of Silent Hill, as well as bringing Koei Tecmo’s Fatal Frame to the big screen! (Via BloodyDisgusting)

In an interview with French website Allocine, and translated by various sites including Rely on Horror, Gans revealed that he has “two horror film projects” in the works with help from producer Victor Hadida, with whom he worked with and his brother Samuel Hadida on the 2006 Silent Hill film.

I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero (editor’s note, known as Fatal Frame in the US),” Gans said. “The film will take place in Japan. I especially don’t want to uproot the game from its Japanese haunted house setting, and we’re also working on a new Silent Hill. The Silent Hill project will always be anchored in this atmosphere of a small American town, ravaged by Puritanism. I think it’s time to make a new one.

Gans made his splash with American audiences on the first Silent Hill film, which he spent five years attempting to get the rights to the series and sending a video interview to Konami to pitch his plan for the film and his adoration for the games, which won him the job. Though not a critical hit, the film was well-received by audiences for its faithfulness to the tone and atmosphere of the games, even if the story itself took some liberties from its source material. The film was also a box office hit, grossing over $100 million on a $50 million budget, with Gans announcing shortly after its release that a sequel was greenlit by the producers.

That sequel would become 2012’s Silent Hill: Revelation, with Gans choosing not to write and direct due to interest on other projects, and was a critical disaster with critics and audiences alike for its incomprehensible plot, lackluster writing and a tame effort to recreate the atmosphere of its predecessor and source material.

Fatal Frame film adaptation has been in the works for 17 years, going all the way back to DreamWorks developing it in 2003 with Robert Fyvolent and Mark R. Brinker being attached to script the project, while John Rogers was set to produce and brought in Steven Spielberg (Ready Player One) to help polish the script. But no news had come in the years since, the only update being in 2014 that the film was still in the works and that Samuel Hadida would now be the primary producer on the project.

Given Gans’ adoration for the source materials and desire to remain true to them, fans should have some excitement over his announcement.

What do you think about a new Silent Hill film and Fatal Frame project from Gans? Let us know below!

Disney has released the final full trailer for their epic live-action adaptation of Mulan and it shows off a bunch of new footage, a lot of which features some of the action in the film’s massive battle sequences.

Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

Paramount Pictures has released a Super Bowl spot for Tom Cruise’s badass-looking film Top Gun: Maverick! The spot shows off a bit of cool new footage to enjoy featuring Cruise racing through the skies! This movie looks so damn good!

Director Joseph Kosinksi (TRON Legacy, Oblivion) recently talked about the film shedding some new light on the story explaining that this story will focus on a group of pilots who have already graduated from the Top Gun school:

“In our film, these are all Top Gun graduates who are coming back for a special training detachment — which is another aspect of Top Gun where they can go back for specialized training after they’ve already graduated. They’re at a different level of experience than in the first film.”

The movie also stars Miles Teller as Goose’s son, Val Kilmer, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, and Lewis Pullman. Here’s the new synopsis that was released:

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.

Top Gun: Maverick will be released on June 26, 2020. Enjoy the Super Bowl spot!
