Everybody cut, everbody cut!
In honor of the ninteenth anniversary of the release of the Kevin Bacon classic Footloose, we thought we'd take out the preacher's daughter, priss around in a grain elevator, kick off our Sunday shoes, and, most importantly, cut footloose. Watch the epic video >> Posted 02.17.13 by reelz

Who Should Play the Demented Industrialist?
The Green Goblin wasn't the first Spider-Man villain and he's not the most powerful, but the colorful character has become Spidey's signature nemesis over the years, appearing in just about every board game, video game, and animated series based upon the wall-crawler's exploits, as well as featuring prominently in Sam Raimi's trilogy (played with great aplomb by Willem Dafoe). Norman Osborn, the wealthy industrialist who first took on the mantle of the Green Goblin, did not figure prominently in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, but director Marc Webb laid the groundwork for his big screen return, setting up Osborn's company, Oscorp, as the manufacturer of the biotech that inadvertently created both Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and also inserting a tag scene at the end that shows a mysterious figure that may or may not be Norman Osborn.
While most speculate that Electro will be the primary villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 because of the Electro-ish lightning seen in the credits, the return of Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin are inevitable, especially in light of the recent news that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will likely have "a very small part" in ASM2 as Peter's other major love interest, Mary Jane Watson, and that Sony intends to "build to the classic 'Death of Gwen Stacy' story" that saw the Green Goblin killing Peter's high school sweetheart. Help us choose the new Green Goblin: Who do you think has the drive and determination to play a billionaire industrialist willing to experiment on himself to save his own life?

"Spy" set photos have been a huge source of information (and, sadly, spoilers) for comic book movie adaptations like The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel, but the latest recipient of set photos is Universal Pictures' adaptation of R.I.P.D. and this time there aren't any spoilers (unless knowing a character's car is going too far for you).
Celeb Buzz found the latest photos, which show Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Bacon walking around a Dodge Challenger. The movie, based on the Darkhorse comic book by writer Peter Lenkov and artist Lucas Marangon, stars Reynolds as a recently murdered police officer who accepts a new position at the Rest in Peace Department, or R.I.P.D., in order to find the man that committed his murder. more photos >> Posted 09.13.11 by Ryan

Based on the Darkhorse comic book by writer Peter Lenkov and artist Lucas Marangon, R.I.P.D. follows to officers of the Rest in Peace Department, which patrols the dead.

spoil promote the movie, so fans can have an early viewing before seeing the prequel in theaters.
20th Century Fox has been releasing a series of character posters in its international marketing campaign for the upcoming X-Men: First Class, and the latest poster (via Comic Book Movie) features Zoë Kravitz as her character Angel Salvadore.
One of the newer First Class characters (first appearing in the 2001 Marvel comic book New X-Men #118), Angel shares a name with another X-Man named Angel, founding member Warren Worthington III. When Kravitz was first cast, there was a little confusion that the No Reservations actress was playing the Worthington Angel, who was a member of the first X-Men team and the one included in the X-Men: First Class comic book written by Jeff Parker and illustrated by Roger Cruz. But the "Angel" Kravitz is playing may have wings, but has other abilities as well, Kravitz told IGN.

Director Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class is counting down to competing in a loaded comic book movie summer, and has been getting the word out worldwide with two new international posters and a series of international trailers.
First Class producer Bryan Singer, who also created the movie's story, has also been active in the press rounds, telling UK site IGN why he made the decision to ignore the events of the First Class comic book and go even further in the past to the beginning of the friendship between Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr, a.k.a. Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Vaughn, thank Eyjafjallajökull >> Posted 04.26.11 by Ryan
