    Feast your compound eyes on this: an exclusive look at an Ant-Man image that Marvel Studios will be sharing this weekend at Comic-Con.

    The illustration is a piece of pre-production concept art specifically made for San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off Wednesday night. So expect to see the movie heavily showcased on Saturday in Marvel's always bombastic presentation.


    It hasn't been an easy couple of months for Ant-Man. Production was expected to be underway already, but director and co-writer Edgar Wright jaw-droppingly dropped out of the production after eight years of labor on the project.
    After some rudderless weeks, Marvel signed Peyton Reed (The Break-UpBring It On) to direct the story of a hero who can shrink to tiny sizes while still packing a heavyweight punch. Adam McKay, a writer-director best known for the Anchorman movies, also signed up to rewrite the script by Wright and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block.)

    In the high-concept sci-fi action comedy Pixels, aliens misinterpret satellite feeds of classic arcade video games such as Space Invaders and Centipede as a declaration of war and launch an attack on earth using the same eight-bit characters and strategies.

    In the Chris Columbus-directed film, the U.S. president (Kevin James) recruits his childhood friends to help save the country. Back in 1982, his three buddies were arcade prodigies, but cut to the present day: “They’re really three losers,” laughs Columbus. They’ve ended up a TV mechanic (Adam Sandler), a felon (Peter Dinklage), and a conspiracy theorist (Frozen‘s Josh Gad). But, they’re still the best guys for the job, and after teaming up with a more up-to-date weapons expert (True Detective‘s Michelle Monaghan), they have no choice but to be ready for battle.


    Shown above in their suits for the first time, the so-called Arcaders are on their way to take down Pac-Man. “They’re actually becoming sort of cultural heroes at this point. It’s a very important shot in the film,” says Columbus.

    Captive Cinema reveals the  American  poster version of  ‘KRISTY’, which proves that there are two sides to every tale.

    From director Oliver "Olly" Blackburn (Donkey Punch) and producers David Kirschner (the Child's Play series), Corey Sienega (Frailty, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky), and Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell (Blue Valentine, Place Beyond the Pines), comes a new thriller starring Haley Bennett (Music and Lyrics), Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga, The Apparition), Erica Ash (Scary Movie 5), Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), and Chris Coy (TV's "True Blood"). Anthony Jaswinski (Vanishing on 7th Street) penned the script.



    With the rest of the campus at home for the Thanksgiving holiday, Justine (Bennett) and a few of her friends spend the weekend in their college dormitory: studying, relaxing, and blissfully unaware of the terror that is about to unfold outside in the cold. Suddenly, confronted by a gang of violent outcasts, Justine's quiet weekend becomes one long lesson in survival as she and her classmates are terrorized in increasingly bizarre and brutal ways, leaving it up to her to figure out who the attackers are… and if they can be stopped.

    Thirty-five years ago, George Miller re-imagined the action movie with his visceral, dystopic 1979 debut Mad Max, starring a 23-year-old Mel Gibson in one of his first movie roles. Flash forward two sequels and many decades later and the 69-year-old Miller returns with a new cast and a story  that is sure to take the road chase to an entirely new realm of chaos and carnage.

    Photo credit: Jasin Boland.
    In an exclusive first look at the the May 2015 film in this week’s Entertainment Weekly, we talk to Miller about what prompted his return to the beloved franchise: a story that popped into his head fully formed back in 2000 but that took more than a decade to realize. This time, Tom Hardy takes over for Gibson as the very damaged road warrior Max Rockatansky, while a shaved-headed Charlize Theron plays a bad-ass commander named Imperator Furiosa. The stars spent a harrowing seven months in the desert of Namibia to shoot the film. “It was mental in a brilliant way,” says Hardy. “You have no concrete, no coffee shops. We were in the middle of a sandpit.”

    The rugged production suited Miller and his singular vision to reboot the Mad Max franchise. “I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes,” says the Australian writer-director. Fury Road features few digital effects and even less dialogue, he explains. “In this crucible of very intense action, the characters are revealed.”
