Disney and Marvel have released three new character posters and a featurette for what could be the surprise hit of the summer “Guardians of the Galaxy. In the posters are Benicio del Toro as the Collector, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, and Lee Pace as Ronan. Previous character posters sets are here and here.
On Facebook, Guardians of the Galaxy editor Fred Raskin recently argued for why you should go out of your way to see the film in IMAX 3D:
“Yesterday I watched the IMAX 3D version of Guardians of the Galaxy, and I can say without question that this is the ideal format in which the movie should be experienced. This is not some hastily-done 3D pass in which they’ve simply added a little depth to the 2D version of the movie. Many of the shots and sequences in the film were designed for 3D (read: this will not be subtle), and I was absolutely floored by how well our 3D team pulled them off. Additionally, in IMAX, there are a number of sequences in which we’ve removed the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so that the image fills the frame, creating a fully-immersive 3D experience.”
Having seen the 17 minute preview in IMAX 3D, I have to agree. I’m seeing the full film in faux-IMAX 3D. I’ll let you know if it comes a close or distant second.
The fine folks at Disney movie marketing have decided to release another featurette for Maleficent giving us just a slightly wider slice of the film than the previous featurettes. This one focuses on the battle between light and dark that goes on in the kingdom, in the characters, and in the movie:
Also released was a new clip from the film featuring that most iconic of Sleeping Beauty moments when Princess Aurora pricks her finger on the spinning wheel and falls into a sleep-like death.
We’re less than one month away from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” being released in theaters, and Marvel has released a couple short TV trailers and a featurette for the film.
Here’s the newest trailer:
This next trailer has been creating a bit of controversy due to a line of dialogue spoken by Steve Rogers as he views a body covered in a white sheet. Don’t worry I won’t spoil it for you, but here is the trailer if you want to hear the line:
Disney’s The Lone Ranger promises a new sort of old western. Clearly a return to the classic genre, but with a twist that will keep audiences focused on the screen waiting for what comes next. Here are three recent behind the scenes looks at how the movie was made:
