Well it seems director Zack Snyder is coming through with continuing to deliver stunning posters/pics for his forthcoming film, Sucker Punch. With the release of another gut-busting promotional poster, you would think that Snyder has everything to gain! Already summing up to be a fantastic film – as this is my most anticipated film of this year – Punch looks to deliver a whole lot more than its title suggests.
This poster only reminds us that in March, dropping into theaters is the ride of your life! Dragons, samurai, guns, gals, robots, swords, planes and of course Nazi’s is only a short list of the things being thrown at us in high-flying 2-D! Sucker Punch is the movie I’m most looking forward to this year, and for a good reason!
Check out the poster below, and as always enjoy!

It’s always nifty having the large amount of action figures being pumped out by Hasbro – who happen to own the rights to the Transformer franchise – the way they do, because usually it’s a unreliable way of getting a early glimpse at the movie’s characters. Still it may not show much insight, as the toys never seem to be THAT accurate to the actual characters anyway — as most toys don’t.
But hey, Hasbro do a fair job if it. So catch a glimpse at the new design for Decepticon baddy Megatron in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
, out summer next year.
Below you can check out the pic’s received by JoBlo
of the robot nasty in pre and post transformation — and also a set pic of what appeared to be an anonymous tanker spotted on various shooting sets. Which now appears to be Megatron himself, before the CGI obviously!
We haven’t been provided with a look at the fairly ruffled up Megatron in the recent teaser trailer, but as the release in July 2011
gets nearer I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of him soon enough; check out the pics below from JoBlo.

Well isn’t this just rich, Ms Megan Fox may still have a soft spot for Bay’s Transformers, at least just one aspect in particular. The much sort after place of “babe” in the films, a role which made Fox’s career — which only this year saw Victoria’s Secrets model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley take over as lead actress for Bay’s Transformers 3.
After leaving the film earlier this year actress Fox, 24, revealed this week that she has plans to see upcoming Transformers 3 on release. But also revealed that she may still have a few sentimental attachments, as well as some jealousy on her part. Talking to MTV, the Jonah Hex actress said “I will see it. I’m gonna see it.
“I might be a little jealous when I see somebody kissing my Shia [LaBeouf], wearing my jeans that I… already had been fit for. It’s kind of weird, actually.” Ooh La La! And she went on to comment on how “different” herself and replacement for the films Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, adding “She’s six feet tall also, so maybe they’re not the exact same jeans. But it will be strange”
Just to note, Huntington-Whiteley is not replacing Fox’s character in the last to films Mikeala Banes, but will play a entirely new character to the film series — Carly who featured in early episodes of the animated TF series as Spike’s (a.k.a Sam’s) wife.
So the way I see it, is Fox was not entirely ready to leave the films — although TF director Michael Bay saw it differently, and if you would like to believe that she was dropped from the film simply because her ‘contract wasn’t renewed’ then good on you. But for whatever reason it must be good — because to be honest Im liking the way new TF babe Huntington-Whiteley is filling those jeans…..don’t you? Stay tuned for more from production of TF 3, and on actress Megan Fox!

Its one of those things that fuel the movie news/gossip business and thats not rumors – its spoilers – and thanks to producer and X-Men 2 director Brian Singer we have some details to share on the upcoming X-Men film — First Class.
So WARNING contains spoilers. There has been allot of casting news lately, and I’m afraid to say that I can’t quite keep up with all the cast news — so I will hopefully get the news to you soon in a joint post later one when the full cast is posted. But for now we have some plot details from producer Brian Singer.
Although Singer isn’t directing, he’s still very much involved with production of X-Men: First Class — and he caught up with AICN to give them the low-down on what they’re up to. Singer is in fact serving as producer for the Mattew Vaugh directed superdude film. Singer had the following to say;
- The film is a allotment piece and is set during the 1960’s, with J.F Kennedy still acting as president
- It will cover the meeting of Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Leshner (Magneto) in around there early 20’s
- James McAvoy is playing a young Professor X, but won’t be in his wheel-chair to begin with so we’ll get to see how and why he got into his wheelchair bound state for the rest of the films – also well be seeing a Charles Xavier with a full crop of hair.
- Singer also said that First Class won’t be your conventional comic-to-movie transfer, its a whole new beginning for the X-Men.
- He said that because it’s set in the 60’s a lot of the technology is inspired by James Bond in that era, so expect some pretty retro gadgets involved.
- The costumes for the film will be even more extravagant and more comic-bookish than before
- We won’t be seeing Scott and Jean we will although be seeing cyclops’ brother Alex Summers aka Havoc, as played by Lucas Till
- The Hellfire club will be present in the film, with Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw and January Jones as Emma Frost as members. Also the costumes will be similar to the ones in the comics, and Bacon may sport a ponytail with a ribbon in it!?!?
- The films will feel more comprehensive with filming spreading from the U.S to England, with Charles Xavier attending Oxford and there will be some Russian elements because of being in the 60’s

Here we have the first set of images (not including the above) straight from the set of Captain America: The First Avenger which began production this June — for a July 22nd, 2011 release in the US. CA: The First Avenger has its work cut out for it, with director Joe Johnston (The Wolfman 2010, Jumanji) heading a cast of Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Dominic Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones and Stanley Tucci.
The film will of course eventually lead into the Marvel mega-team-up of The Avengers, but the most of the film will focus on the early days and the beginnings of Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) involvement in a government experiment that would turn him into the super soldier Captain America we all know and love. So check out the less than exciting pics below!

With the majority of young actress in hollywood gunning for the role. Rooney will star alongside Daniel Craig for the three films, including The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
