Marvel is continuing their “let’s release an innocuous photo from The Avengers” streak, the latest two of which retain a certain mold, wherein the heroes either stand around or walk toward something that should look cool in actual movie. The above image, from the film’s Facebook page (via HeyUGuys) has Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) looking at a monitor; the picture right below, courtesy of Empire (via CBM) gives us Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America (Chris Evans), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) stridently striding.

Whether we like it or not, the Barry Sonnenfeld sequel that no one asked for — or, one that six people asked for nine years ago — will be coming our way May 25th, and the marketing is only going to hit an influx before then. Our newest photos show off Will Smith and the Tommy Lee Jones-imitating Josh Brolin. Which is to say, none of this will change your opinion three months before the film comes out — even if Brolin looks like he’s having fun.
Do these pictures have you salivating for some blockbuster fun? Which of these three are you anticipating the most?

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
