FilmBuffOnline » Pictures For The Complete Movie Fan Sun, 29 Jun 2014 02:40:49 +0000 en-US hourly 1 KINGSMAN:THE SECRET SERVICE Trailer, Poster Hit The Internet Tue, 20 May 2014 23:31:54 +0000 kingsman-duoWith the precision of a military raid run by a secret government organization, the producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service have made a multi-front attack today as the opening salvo in their promotion of the movie.

The film, originally titled simply The Secret Service, tell the tale of a young British street thug who is welcomed into a James Bond-ish spy network. It is based on a comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons and is brought to the screen by the same man who brought Millar’s Kick-Ass to the big screen, Matthew Vaughn.

Part one of the promotional blitz is the official trailer for the film, which you can see here:

Part two is an interview between the film’s star, Colin Firth, and Entertainment Weekly where the star gushes over the experience of working on the film. The interview comes with exclusive images from the fiolm:

kingsman-firth with gun kingsman-Michael Caine kingsman-firth stairs kingsman-sam jackson kingsman-firth suits kingsman-duoIt’s here where we catch a glimpse of cast members Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson. I love the fact that comic book adaptations are able to get two Oscar winners and an Oscar nominee in their casts.

And finally, we get a glimpse at the rather elegant teaser poster for the film:


They came on strong and definitely have got my attention. I’m sure we’ll get even more promotion before the film opens on October 24, 2014.

Now Zack Snyder Tweets Full Look At The Batmobile…And Batman!!!! Tue, 13 May 2014 18:25:03 +0000 man and mobile sneak peekYou got to hand it to him, Zack Snyder is a man of his word. When he teases a better look at something, he delivers. Not only that, he gives you a little bit more.

Yesterday, the Batman vs. Superman director gave us a tweet with a small glimpse of what the new Batmobile looks like, but the car was mostly covered with a tarp. He did promise a better look today and he did deliver. Not only did we get a better look at the vehicle…but also its driver!

It’s so cute that he tells us what camera he used. Like the fans will even care.

Anyway, here is the picture again. Click to make it bigger.

batman-vs-superman-ben-affleck-batmobileNot exactly a clear, full look, but enough to make snap judgements on. Yesterday, I said the car looked like the baby of the Burton Batmobile and Nolan’s Tumbler. This makes that comparison seem more on the nose. Look at the canopy on this version and the one on the 1989 Batmobile:


There’s a similarity right? Now, on to Batfleck. Thanks to Twitter user Adam Hlavac and his judicious use of Photoshop, we have a lighter view of Batman which shows off more detail of the suit:

ben-affleck-batman-image-batman-vs-superman So,  the muscles are back to being part of the suit? Alright, then.

Dark-Knight-Returns-Batman-StatueThe new Batsuit, like the Batmobile, appears to be a marriage of the Burton Batsuits, the Nolan Batsuits, and Batman’s costume from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comic book, seen to the right as a collectable statue. Note the tiny ears on the cowl, the accents on the gloves and the oversized bat on the chest.  The comic book design has carried over onto the new Batsuit. Snyder has said he was taking that comic book into consideration while making this movie, and we can see the proof right here.

And I don’t want to hate on Ben Affleck, but he’s got to work on his brooding. I think he’s trying to go for moody introspection here, but it looks more like he just trying to remember where he left his car keys.

Batman vs. Superman, or whatever it will eventually be called, is scheduled to open on May 6, 2016.

Zack Snyder Gives Peek At BATMAN VS SUPERMAN’S Batmobile Mon, 12 May 2014 18:27:32 +0000 Batmobile sneak peekZack Snyder is taking a page from Bryan Singer when it comes to promoting your movie. Singer’s regular Tweets from the X-Men: Days of Future Past set raised fan interest for that film to a fever pitch, and it looks like Snyder is trying the same tactics to raise interest in Batman vs Superman.

The director went to Twitter today to tease fans by giving them a sneak peek at what the iconic Batmobile will look like in the film.

Let’s take a bigger look at what we can actually see of the vehicle (Click to make bigger).

batman-vs-superman-batmobileNot much to see, except that it looks like the Burton and Nolan Batmobiles had a baby.

Will we get a full reveal tomorrow? We’ll see.

Images, Teaser Trailer For PEANUTS Released Tue, 18 Mar 2014 21:18:34 +0000 chuck andsnoopyIf you were like me, the Peanuts gang were a fundamental part of your life. You grew up reading the comic strips in your local paper, own books of collecting the strips that you read over and over again, and looked forward to every holiday for the annual TV show featuring that lovable cast of characters.

And if you are like me, you tend to view Hollywood’s insistence on revisiting these characters from you youth with a mix of cynicism and disdain because you know it won’t be the same as your memories, and the changes will only make things worse.

However, strangely enough, I’m not getting that feeling here. Granted, it is only two pictures and a short teaser trailer, but you can see that the makers of the 3-D animated version of Charles Shulz’s  famous creations took a painstaking amount of time to capture the look and feel of Shulz’s two-dimensional art in their final product, and seem to have captured the tone of the humor as well.

Take a look for yourself. One image is above, one below and at the bottom, the teaser.

Peanuts is set to arrive in theaters on November 6, 2015.

Do New Images Of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Offer A Glimpse Of The Scarlet Witch? Mon, 24 Feb 2014 20:27:03 +0000 So, people were wondering that since Fox stole Marvel’s thunder by putting Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past before Marvel could use him in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, would they do the same for his twin sister, Wanda aka the Scarlet Witch? According to French site Les Toiles Heroiques, they might have done just that.

If you click on that link, you’ll see a whole bunch of new still from and behind the scenes looks from the new movie. But one pic stands out in particular:
XMenDaysofFuturePast022414_4That, of course, is Evan Peters, who is playing Quicksilver in the Bryan Singer directed film. That little girl? Cinema Blend seems to think that the French site is saying that that is Quicksilver’s sister Wanda. So that is how the Scarlet Witch will look in this film.

It appears that, unless there is a plot point where one matures slower/faster than the other, the pair in this film are no longer twins. Fox should be thankful then that Marvel is going to present the pair in a way that more matches up with the comics, because that will only mitigate the fan outrage that would have hit if this was the only version of Wanda on film.

Of course, this might not be Wanda. It could be that Quicksilver runs an afterschool babysitting service for the parents in his neighborhood. We’ll see in May when Day of Future Past opens.

Sentinels, Quicksilver And More On Empire’s DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Cover Variants Mon, 27 Jan 2014 18:27:39 +0000 DaysOfFuturePastLogo

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Britain’s Empire Magazine is unveiling 25 cover variants for their anniversary issue, each featuring a character from the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Many of the covers feature heroes and villains we’ve already seen throughout the X-Men Franchise – Magneto, Professor Xavier, Beast, Mystique, etc. But there are a few covers featuring our first good looks at several new characters including the speedster Quicksilver and the robotic Sentinels. Empire is still rolling these out on their website at a rate of one per hour, so we’ll update should more new characters make their appearance.

New DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Character Portraits Including Bishop And Colossus Fri, 19 Jul 2013 15:23:36 +0000 Twentieth Century Fox is certainly pushing out the information about next summer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past this week. Yesterday, they unveiled what the robotic, mutant hunting Sentinels will like in the film at San Diego Comic Con and now we have the release of a number of character portraits from the film.






From top to bottom we have Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Omar Sy as Bishop, Daniel Cudmore as Colossus, Sir Ian McKellen as Magneto and Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier.

Why the info blitz? I would imagine that this is Fox just warming up for their presentation on the movie at San Diego Comic Con later this weekend. We’ll see.

Here’s That Matt Damon ZERO THEOREM Picture Again… Sort Of Wed, 19 Jun 2013 20:45:11 +0000 So on Monday, we posted a picture of Matt Damon in costume in Terry Gilliam’s upcoming science-fiction thriller The Zero Theorem. And yesterday, I received a polite note requesting that we take the picture down, which we promptly did.

Well, just a few minutes ago, Gilliam himself posted a slightly altered version of that picture on Facebook, so I am assuming that it is OK to share with the rest of you. Gilliam also supplied the accompanying explanation-

This picture was printed in Variety yesterday claiming it was Matt Damon in The Zero Theorem and immediately spread round the web. It has now been removed from most of the websites that carried it. For legal reasons, we do not admit that Matt is in the film, so I have removed the part that might have got somebody in hot water.


I am unsure as to what “legal reasons” there are for not admitting that Damon is in the film. He admitted it himself back in October. If he wanted his appearance to be a surprise or go uncredited, perhaps he shouldn’t have mentioned anything back then? I am reasonably sure that if there is a problem with identifying Damon with the film, I just may hear about it shortly.

First Look: Evageline Lilly As HOBBIT’s Elf Warrior Tauriel Wed, 05 Jun 2013 15:41:25 +0000 HobbitDesolationSmaugLogo

Like his three-film adaptation of the The Lord Of The Rings before it, the first part of director Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit has drawn some criticism from die-hard fans of the book’s author, J. R. R. Tolkien. It’s understandable to an extent that fans may be protective of their love, but it does ignore the fact that story-telling in film sometimes has different needs than story-telling in novels does.

One of the changes that Tolkien fans have expressed the most concern about is the inclusion of a new character in the upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug in the form of an elf warrior named Tauriel and being played by Lost‘s Evangeline Lilly. While we have seen Lily in bits of behind-the-scenes footage that have been released, we have not yet seen an official look at the character until now.


Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Lilly described the character as “slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill.”

Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard. She’s a Sylvan Elf, which means she’s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in The Lord of the Rings. She doesn’t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do — she’s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit. She will definitely have a love story. I can’t give away too much about it. It’s not a huge focus but it is there and it is important and it does drive Tauriel and her story and her actions.

I can already hear the outrage over that love story possibly involving Lord Of The Rings‘s Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Lilly doesn’t do much too either confirm or dispel that line of thought.

Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her. That’s probably as much as I can say.

Currently it is rumored that we will see the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug in front of Man Of Steel next weekend. Will we see Lilly in action then?
