First Look At Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance

Ghost Rider was an ok movie.  It had a lot of potential but overall was a bit of a let down.  But like any movie that does well at the box office in the comic book movie world, it gets a sequel.  We can hope it's better than the first.  These pictures from Empire Magazine are our first look at the film.  Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance opens February 17, 2012.

Trailer Park : The 90's Batman Films Part 2 - Batman Returns (1992)

Welcome to a new edition of Trailer Park.  The look back at the 90's Batman films continue with part of the series spotlighting Batman Returns!  Batman was a huge hit so a sequel was only natural.  Michael Keaton would return as Batman, and the villians this time would be Catwoman and Penguin played by Michelle Pfeiifer and Danny Devito respectively.  Tim Burton returned to the directors chair and once again the movie would be a smash hit at the box office.  The title was a bit weird because I'm not exactly sure where Batman was returning from except back to theaters, but the film worked and many believe it to be better than it's predecessor.  It would be Burton's last turn in the director's chair for a Batman film as well as Keaton behind the mask. Keaton was the only man to play Batman twice until Christian Bale who is currently filming his third Batman film for Christopher Nolan.
     The plot was a bit preposterous, as The Penguin wanted to take over Gotham city by becoming it's mayor and using mechanical penguins to attack the city.  All very comic bookish in only a way that Tim Burton could pull off.  And believe it or not the studio wanted even more camp and comic book like for the third film and that's one of the reasons Burton walked away from the franchise.
     Marketing for Batman Returns stayed with the darker tone that Burton's Batman films featured.  The posters featured character posters for the Batman and the villians, as well as a classic teaser poster (see above).  The trailers also stayed with the dark tone presented in the film.  Check out the posters and trailers below, and next time I will take a look at the franchise's turn into a more colorful comic book movie with Batman Forever!

Battleship Trailer

The trailer for Peter Berg's action/science fiction film Battleship and Yahoo Movies has it  For a movie that's loosely based on a board game, this looks pretty bad ass.  Yah it does look borrowed from other films but still looks cool I think. We shall see next May who sunk who's Battleship!

Riddick 3 Concept Art

Pitch Black and The Chronicles Of Riddick were both pretty decent science fiction films.  Yah I can hear the groans now, but really go watch them again.  Yes they have some not so good acting in them and overall science fiction cheese, but they really are not that bad.  If nothing else they have a loyal following of fans and the universe in which the films are set is an interesting one.  Riddick 3 is in pre-production now and Vin Diesel himself decided to share this awesome piece of concept art through his Facebook page!

Superman Returns "Return To Krypton" Deleted Scene

Superman Returns was a love it or hate it film (one that this writer liked a lot) but when the film came out, the opening sequence at the ruins of Krypton was missing!  It was in the novel, the comic, the trading cards, and other tie ins. Not only was the scene in other media for the film, it was rumored to cost 10 million dollars and they cut it!  Now however we can see it in its entirety since it was released on the new Superman Anthology Blu-Ray collection and now you can see the missing sequence here in it's entirety.

Meet The Dwarves Of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Warner Brothers has released two new official pictures from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have been released introducing us to the dwarves of the story.  The film hits theaters December 14, 2012.

The first photo features Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori. Warner Brothers also released the following description: These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. No-body quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.

The second photo features John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin. The description of these two is as follows: Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.
