Millions of movie fans are going to get to see the great Ben Kingsley ham it up as the villainous Mandarin in 'Iron Man 3' when it opens this Friday, but he has another big performance coming our way in 2013. The Oscar-winning thespian is playing the role of war hero Mazer Rackham in Gavin Hood's upcoming adaptation of 'Ender's Game' and our first look at the character has arrived.
Some will call this a slow weekend, but it may be better to think of it as the calm before the storm. Next week, the summer movie season begins and people are saving their pennies for 'Iron Man 3,' so it's not really surprising that this was an uneventful couple of days at the multiplex. At least the folks behind 'Pain and Gain' can be glad that their film led an otherwise quiet weekend.
'Hellboy' and 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' were only modest successes by the standards of superhero movies, grossing $99 million and and $160 million respectively, so the demand for a 'Hellboy 3' doesn't seem particularly high. However, according to Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, a third film needs to happen.
'Iron Man 3' may not have opened in the United States yet, but it's already a smash hit overseas, earning more money in its opening weekend than 'The Avengers' did. There's a reason why movie studios are starting to think internationally when it comes to their blockbusters -- people in other countries want to see these movies just as much as Americans and a successful international release can double or triple a domestic gross.
With 'Drive,' Ryan Gosling and director Nicolas Winding Refn creating a haunting and brutal crime flick for the ages. The duo look to recreate that magic with the upcoming 'Only God Forgives,' which moves the action to Thailand but maintains their last film's slick style and uncomfortable violence. Three incredibly NSFW clips from the film have arrived and it certainly looks like Refn and Gosling are bringing their A-game.
Director JJ Abrams is infamous for keeping details on his projects on the down low, so many people have already begun speculating what will go on with the production of 'Star Wars Episode 7.' If there's one thing we learned from watching the production of the prequel trilogy, it's that 'Star Wars' fans are as passionate as they are nosy and if there's one thing we've learned from 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' it's that Abrams plays things close to the vest. A recent interview with LucasFilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy shed some light on this whole situation.
Although it doesn't open in the United States for another week and change, 'Iron Man 3' has already started rolling out internationally, garnering its fair share of rave reviews. While some audiences are already getting the chance to see the whole movie, we simply have to sit back and play the waiting game. Well, at least the waiting game involves a new behind-the-scenes look and footage from the film!
