'Avengers 2' Trailer Debuts During Next 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 4 hours 14 min ago

Marvel announced during tonight's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron will debut during next week's episode, "A Fractured House", airing Tuesday, October 28 at 9 PM ET on ABC. Take a look at the announcement below, which Marvel made on their official Twitter page.

After production wrapped in August on Avengers: Age of Ultron, many fans wondered when the first footage from this Marvel Phase Two sequel will debut. Earlier this month, we reported that fans at New York Comic-Con got to see scenes from the movie, which take place during a party at Avengers Tower. This fun time comes to an abrupt ending when it is interrupted by Ultron (James Spader). It isn't known if this is the same footage fans will see next week, but the description led many to believe that it was just a teaser trailer, which would be just the right length to show during a TV series such as Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

If what is coming next Tuesday is just a brief teaser, it isn't known when Marvel may debut the full trailer. We reported last month that the full trailer may be attached to prints of Paramount's Interstellar, which hits theaters on November 7, nearly two weeks after the first footage airs on ABC.

Will you be tuning in to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. just to get an early look at Avengers: Age of Ultron? Chime in with your thoughts below.

'Bad Santa 2' Still Happening with Billy Bob Thornton

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 6 hours 39 min ago

Fargo star Billy Bob Thornton recently took part in a Hollywood Masters discussion for The Hollywood Reporter, where he offered an update on the long-awaited sequel Bad Santa 2.

We reported in May 2013 that Entourage creator Doug Ellin has come aboard to write the script and possibly direct the sequel. Billy Bob Thornton revealed that they are still waiting for a script to come in, while admitting that the follow-up won't be as good as the first.

"We're just waiting for a script, you know? We're never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it haflway so we're waiting for something that's close enough. It'll do real well I imagine and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be' but I think it should be fun and I think people who liked [the first one] will enjoy it and hopefully we'll get it off."

It should be noted that, in October 2013, five months after Doug Ellin signed on to write the script, Warner Bros. gave his Entourage movie the green light, with production commencing in January 2014. It isn't known if Doug Ellin completed the script before starting work on Entourage, but he did cast Billy Bob Thornton in a key role in that movie.

It remains to be seen if Doug Ellin is even still involved in Bad Santa 2 at this point, but Billy Bob Thornton seems determined to make a sequel happen.

Bad Santa 2 was released in 2013 and stars Billy Bob Thornton.

'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Prank Scares People Into Hysterics

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 7 hours 29 min ago

Your fear of parking garages may reach new heights after you watch the latest prank video from VitalyzdTv and Nick Santonastasso. It's that time of year again, and this Halloween VitalyzdTv and Nick have decided to dust off one very leathery mask for a bit of car port fun.

The team decide to bring the 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre screaming to life, which doesn't bode well for anyone that comes in contact with their staged set-up. What has people screaming so loud they are in danger of going into hysterics?

Well, for starters, they have Leatherface pretending to dismember a helpless man in a quite realistic and brutal manner with the help of a special friend. The reactions are all genuine and quite hilarious. The pranksters are just lucky no one is quite prepared to retaliate. An encounter in an elevator is especially memorable.

Watch and laugh along as Leatherface gets down to some quite dirty business just in time for Halloween:

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released October 1st, 1974 and stars Marilyn Burns, Allen Danziger, Paul A. Partain, William Vail, Teri McMinn, Edwin Neal, Jim Siedow, Gunnar Hansen. The film is directed by Tobe Hooper.

Is 'Shazam' Getting 'Fast and Furious 7' Director James Wan?

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 8 hours 36 min ago

Earlier today it was announced that James Wan will return to direct the horror sequel The Conjuring 2 as part of his new deal with New Line Cinemas. A crucial tidbit of information may have been overlooked in the initial report, which states that James Wan will make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros. 'or' DC.

New Line president/COO Toby Emmerich had this to say about James Wan's deal at New Line:

"James will make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC, and that is definitely part of the plan, and a reason for bringing him into the family. He's the only overall director with a deal here, because we see him as a class of one."

Toby Emmerich's quote is a little misleading. Its not quite clear what is meant by 'New Line, Warner Bros. or DC'. But right now, Shazam! is the only known DC movie that is set up at New Line, while the rest of the recently announced movies are being house at Warner Bros. So it's quite possible that James Wan will direct Shazam! for New Line.

As previously stated, Shazam! is not being looked at as part of the overall DC Comics Cinematic Universe. No confirmed story details have been released, except that Dwayne Johnson is confirmed to play Black Adam . The 'Or' in the statement could also be referring to one of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movies, or one of the Warner Bros. and DC Comics standalone Justice League spinoffs.

James Wan is set to develop and produce modestly budgeted sci-fi, horror and comedy movies for New Line in the next couple of years, and since his deal is specifically with New Line, it seems like Shazam! is the safest bet if we are to wager exactly which movie James Wan will be taking on for DC.

Shazam! doesn't arrive in theaters until 2019, giving James Wan ample time to direct The Conjuring 2 for 2016 and a possible Fast & Furious 7 sequel for 2017. James Wan currently has a holding deal with Universal, and while they have opened up his schedule allowing him to make The Conjuring 2, they have not confirmed he will be back for their hugely popular action franchise.

We'll have to wait until an official announcement is made to know for sure how this is all playing out.

Shazam! comes to theaters April 5th, 2019 and stars Dwayne Johnson.

'Pee-Wee Herman' Movie Announcement Is Coming Soon

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 8 hours 47 min ago

Pee-wee's Playhouse and Pee-Wee's Big Adventure star Paul Reubens revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that a new Pee Wee Herman movie is finally about to be announced.

"There's going to be a big announcement any minute now. Yes. It's been months and months of being right on the verge of being announced. I thought something was going to go public yesterday, actually, and that you'd be the first person I'd be talking about this with. But I'm thinking there will be something made public very soon. It's going to get made shortly after the new year. I wish I could tell you about it right now, because... I mean, it's amazing. It's going to be amazing. It think it first got leaked four years ago or so that the movie was going to be made, and ever since then it's just been stalling and stalling. So I'm really ready for this to happen. But I'm not kidding: It's very imminent."

Back in March 2011, producer Judd Apatow revealed he was working on this new Pee-Wee adventure, and this March, the producer said that Paul Reubens and Paul Rust co-wrote the script, and that they were "kicking around" titles such as Pee Wee Takes a Holiday. It isn't known if that is currently the title or not, but perhaps we'll hear more about the project soon.

Paul Reubens' Pee-Wee Herman character debuted during an HBO TV special in 1981, which lead to the 1985 movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and served as Tim Burton's directorial debut. That film not only spawned a sequel, 1988's Big Top Pee Wee, but also the TV series Pee-wee's Playhouse, which ran from 1986 to 1990.

Pee Wee Takes a Holiday comes to theaters in 2016 and stars Paul Reubens.

'Cyborg' Star Talks 'Justice League' and 'Batman v Superman'

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - 8 hours 47 min ago

When Warner Bros. announced in April that Broadway star Ray Fisher will make his feature film debut as Victor Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was believed to be a smaller role that would expand in Justice League. Little did we know that Warner Bros. planned on making this 27-year-old actor a major part of their DC Comics movie universe, after last week's announcement that he will have his own Cyborg movie in 2020. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor also confirmed that he will star in both Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, along with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his stand-alone Cyborg movie.

The actor revealed that he was just as surprised as the fans, since he was told only a few hours before last week's huge announcement that he will be getting his own Cyborg movie.

"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand-alone film."

Ray Fisher wrapped his scenes on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in July, and while he wouldn't divulge any plot details, he did say that he met his fellow Justice League cast members Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman) on the set.

"I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ezra Miller (The Flash). It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn't while I was there."

When asked what fans should expect from Man of Steel director Zack Snyder in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ray Fisher had this to say.

"Let me tell you, man, people are in for a hell of a treat."

The actor first made waves in last year's off-Broadway play Fetch Clay, where he played legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, which lead to him being in contention for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII. When his stand-alone Cyborg movie hits the big screen in six years, he'll be the first African-American to star in a non-ensemble superhero movie since Will Smith's 2008 adventure Hancock. The actor added that he didn't see himself landing these types of roles until his 40s.

"I'm a long-game player and didn't see any of this happening until at least my 40s. It's a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now."

What do you think about these new developments? Do you think Ray Fisher is the perfect fit for Cyborg? Chime in with your thoughts below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

Cyborg comes to theaters April 30th, 2020.

Justice League Part 1 comes to theaters November 11th, 2017 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

Justice League Part 2 comes to theaters June 14th, 2019. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
