IronMan-Comic-Con-poster-boxAvengers: Age of Ultron is sure to feature some epic fights when it hits theaters in May of 2015, and the film’s newly revealed Comic-Con concept art posters promise intense close-quarters combat for both Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.

Created by Andy Park, the same artist behind the recently unveiled Ant-Man Comic-Con poster, these two concept art posters are free and can be picked up at Marvel’s booth #2329 while supplies last. The posters show Iron Man and Scarlet Witch fending off members of what looks to be Ultron’s robot army.

Slated for a May 1st, 2015 release, Avengers: Age of Ultron will see Marvel’s finest reunite to take on the threat of the sentient robot Ultron. Written and directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers sequel stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Here’s what Marvel had to say about the posters:

“Headed to San Diego Comic-Con? Don’t miss out on what are sure to be some of the hottest items of the convention, these posters featuring concept art from Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”!

Make sure to stop by the Marvel booth, #2329, to pick up these free posters while supplies last! These two posters are only available during Preview Night, while supplies last. Today’s posters feature artwork of Iron Man by Ryan Meinerding as well as a poster by Andy Park of Scarlet Witch.

Once these two character posters are gone, then they’re gone. But maybe if you check back tomorrow, we’ll have something else in store. Maybe. Keep up with all things Marvel at SDCC by keeping your eyes on Marvel.com and following @Marvel on Twitter!”

Here’s a look at the Comic-Con exclusive posters (thanks to Marvel for the images!):

Ant-Man-poster-boxDC’s Batman drives the Batmobile and Marvel’s Ant-Man gets around town on a winged ant. As an antihero who can shrink down to microscopic size, Scott Lang has an unconventional mode of transportation that’s featured along with key characters on Marvel’s recently unveiled Ant-Man Comic-Con poster, and fans eagerly awaiting the 2015 film should be pleased.

Showing Scott Lang transforming back to full size while wearing his shrinking suit, this poster made exclusively for Comic-Con by Andy Park and labeled as “Pre-Production Concept Art” also includes a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym in the background. Comic-Con attendees can pick up this poster at Marvel’s Booth #2329.

The Ant-Man movie is scheduled to be released on July 17th, 2015. Marvel recently hired director Peyton Reed to replace director/co-writer Edgar Wright after he left the project due to creative differences. Adam McKay (Anchorman films) was brought in to rewrite the original script penned by Wright and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Filming will begin this August.

In the comic books, Scott Lang is initially not the hero type, as he steals the shrinking suit technology from the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. Over time, however, Scott learns to use his newfound powers for good and not thievery. We have a look at the poster below (a big thanks to EW for the poster image!):

Air-photo-boxImagine being a custodial worker in a bunker that’s the last livable place on Earth. The air outside is unbreathable, and a select group of humans are in cryogenic slumber around you. This is life for workers Bauer and Cartwright, but great responsibility and a dark secret could threaten to destroy their sanity and the human race. Produced by Robert Kirkman and starring Norman Reedus, Air is hitting theaters next spring, and a new image and poster from the film have been released.

Set to be released in spring of 2015, Air is the first feature film from Skybound Entertainment. Joining Reedus in the movie is Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond, Fast & Furious 7), who plays Cartwright opposite Reedus’ Bauer. Christian Cantamessa (co-writer of the video game, Red Dead Redemption) makes his directing debut with Air, based off a script by himself and Chris Pasetto. Robert Kirkman is producing the project, along with David Alpert, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Chris Ferguson, and several others.

In a recent interview with EW, Kirkman said that Air has an old-school sci-fi atmosphere that hearkens back to Ridley Scott’s Alien. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on Air as it moves closer to its release date.

The story is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers (Reedus, Hounsou), who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.

Below are two images from Air released by EW, as well as the first official poster for the film that’s available at SDCC (courtesy of Bloody Disgusting!):

Mad-Max-boxMoviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director/writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters. Staying true to the desolate environments of the series, much of this fourth entry was shot in the desert of Namibia, and the first official poster for Fury Road captures Max’s ride amidst a barren landscape.

The phrase “WHAT A LOVELY DAY” written across the top, this first poster sees Max stretching his legs outside his souped-up apocalyptic ride as he gazes across a nearly blindingly bright stretch of desert at what looks to be an oncoming caravan of vehicles that are more than likely not swinging by to exchange pleasantries.

Directed by George Miller and set for a May 15th, 2015 release, Mad Max: Fury Road features Tom Hardy in the role of Max Rockatansky (previously played by Mel Gibson) and Charlize Theron as the tough-as-nails Imperator Furiosa. Fans of The Road Warrior should be happy to hear that the movie will essentially be one long chase scene with low amounts of dialogue and digital effects. Here’s the updated synopsis of the film, which was shot over seven months in the desert of Namibia:

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by TOM HARDY from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And… Furiosa (played by CHARLIZE THERON from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

In addition to Hardy and Theron, the rest of the cast includes Nicholas Hoult, Nathan Jones, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, with the man who played Toecutter from 1979′s Mad Max, Hugh Keays-Byrne, playing a new role in the fourth film. George Miller directed off a screenplay by himself, Nick Lathouris, and Brendan McCarthy.

We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on Mad Max: Fury Road as it rumbles toward its May 2015 release. In the meantime, we have the first poster below (courtesy of Collider!) and previously released film stills (thanks to EW and Collider!):

Sinister-Box-2If you see him, it’s probably too late. Referred to as Mr. Boogie, or Bughuul, the pagan deity in 2012′s Sinister has a history of haunting and destroying families, as well as consuming children’s souls, making him a truly twisted version of the boogeyman. It was recently announced that Ciaran Foy (Citadel) would direct Sinister 2 and that the film would begin shooting in August, and now Focus Features has slated the sequel for a summer 2015 release.

Deadline reports that Sinister 2 will hit theaters on August 21st, 2015. Scott Derrickson, the director of the 2012 original that starred Ethan Hawke, is writing the screenplay with C. Robert Cargill. The duo also scripted the first film, which stayed true to efficient Blumhouse Productions form by hauling in more than $87 million on a $3 million budget. Producing the sequel are Derrickson and Jason Blum.

Here’s what Scott Derrickson had to say about Sinister 2 in our recent interview:

It’s going to start shooting in August. I wrote the script with [C. Robert] Cargill, and I’m really proud of it. It was hard to write, because I want it to really have the quality level of the first movie, but not be a predictable sequel. Both of us were pretty dedicated to writing a horror sequel that’s fresh and unexpected, but didn’t stray so far from the first. It was a laborious process, but we did it. I’m producing the movie and we have a great director, so I’m feeling very positive about it.

There are no plot details at this time, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers posted on any developments. For those that didn’t see the original movie, it starred Ethan Hawke as a crime novelist who makes a horrifying discovery in his new home:

A true crime novelist struggling to find his next big story moves his family into a house where the horrific murder of an entire family took place. But after finding a box of home videos in which other families are also brutally murdered, his investigation leads him to a supernatural entity that may be placing his own family in harm’s way.

Cthulhu-Call-GirlA wonderfully weird and comedic love letter to H.P. Lovecraft, Call Girl of Cthulhu is the latest from the director Chris LaMartina, the filmmaker behind last year’s endlessly charming 80’s throwback project, the WNUF Halloween Special.  This time, LaMartina and his co-writer Jimmy George tackle modern relationships and Cthulhu mythologies, resulting in truly one of the more insanely fun and well-conceived low-budget horror movies I’ve seen all year.

Call Girl of Cthulhu follows nice guy Carter Wilcox (David Phillip Carollo), a young artist desperate to lose his virginity and even more desperate to find the perfect girl to lose it to. Carter thinks he finally has found “the one” when he meets a local call girl Riley (Melissa O’Brien), who frequents the apartment building he lives in with his cranky roommate (Nicolette Le Faye). Unfortunately for Carter (and his intended), Riley has been targeted by a group of cultists as their “chosen one” to give birth to the spawn of Cthulhu, throwing a huge monkey wrench in their blossoming romance of course. Soon, it’s up to Carter to save Riley from her destiny- not only for her own well-being, but also for the sake of all of humanity (and well- Carter’s virginity, too).

As you may have suspected, Call Girl of Cthulhu isn’t a movie that ever takes itself too seriously, an approach that compliments LaMartina and George’s surprisingly clever and thoughtful script rather well.  It also doesn’t take a genius to figure out after watching either this film or WNUF that both writers are HUGE genre fans and that love shines through and through with all the little touches they put into the story once again. Call Girl of Cthulhu features numerous homages to Lovecraftian characters and the Cthulhu mythos (as expected), as well as tons of impressive gooey gore moments that rival many practical effects gags you see in movies with 10 times the budget that LaMartina has at his disposal here.

LaMartina and George also balanced out their often silly story with well-developed characters that give you a reason to care about what happens, something else you don’t often see in too many micro-budgeted horror movies these days. The Call Girl of Cthulhu cast, all newcomers to the industry, do really strong work in the film too. Each actor does a nice job of playing up the humor in the material without ever getting too hammy, yet another touch that further strengthened the film overall.

Probably the best film Troma never made, Call Girl of Cthulhu is just good, old-fashioned splat-stick shenanigans and is absolutely worth checking out if it happens to be playing in your area (the film is currently making the festival rounds). It’s not a film meant for everyone, but for those of you Lovecraft (and horror) fans out there looking for something just a little bit outside the norm, Call of Cthulhu is just a ridiculous amount of fun and has the earmarkings of a midnight movie in the making.

Movie Score: 3.5/5

Amazing-Spiderman-2-boxWe’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.

THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) will write and direct Sinister Six and though it’s not officially known at this time who will star in the film, it’s likely that at least some of the vast array of villains introduced in the first two Amazing Spider-Man films will form the cast: Rhys Ifans as the Lizard, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin, and Paul Giamatti as the Rhino. The Sinister Six originally appeared in 1964′s The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 and was comprised of Electro, Doctor Octopus, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, Vulture, and Sandman.

Sliding into the abandoned June 10th, 2016 Sony slot is Uncharted, a feature film adaptation of the Indiana Jones-influenced action adventure Playstation video game series that will be directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses).

We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on Sinister Six as it moves further along in development.
