New Images From ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Hobbit’, ‘Prometheus’ & More

Prometheus

Scott’s former (current?) Alien prequel, Prometheus, sounds like a pretty fascinating mix of existential sci-fi and cosmic horror, especially as described by the filmmaker himself. The film’s newly-released teaser trailer has only heightened excitement surrounding the project, thanks to its enigmatically foreboding design and stylistic homage to Scott’s original 1979 sci-fi/horror creation.

The Prometheus cast is pretty shiny too, with people such as Noomi Rapace (the Swedish Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Idris Elba (Thor), Guy Pearce (Memento), and Charlize Theron, among others onboard for the trip. Hard to doubt a film with that sort of talent involved.

Check out Rapace as one of the film’s futuristic space explorers in the latest Prometheus pic:

Brave

Pixar’s new original computer-animated feature, Brave, failed to make Screen Rant‘s top 20 anticipated list for 2012, but it’s easily one of the higher-ranking runner-ups. As evidenced by the film’s trailer, this looks to be a more darkly fantastical and action-packed spin on the traditional Disney princess fairy tale – more so than even the Mouse House’s most recent animated effort, Tangled.

Brave will still boast plenty in the way of kid-friendly humor and light-weight entertainment; that it will also appeal to grown-up moviegoers is welcome news, especially in the lackluster aftermath of Pixar’s most recent film (see: Cars 2).

Get another look at the animation style of Brave in the new pic below:

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

This Seth Grahame-Smith novel adaptation is definitely a strange beast – and not just because of the attention-grabbing title. Director Timur Bekmambetov has devised a pretty clever way of encompassing the source material’s dead-serious approach: combine inscrutable amounts of historically-accurate production design with hyper-stylized action set pieces and fight scenes.

Vampire Hunter stands out as one of the more “unique” Hollywood blockbusters on the horizon, amidst a sea of sequels and reboots. We’re just hoping that the bizarre setup lends itself to an entertaining movie, when all is said and done.

For an early look at the film’s “historical biopic meets Wanted” aesthetic, check out the new official image from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Tolkien’s The Hobbit novel lacks the sheer scale of the author’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, but it’s as equally beloved a fantasy tale as that epic work. Jackson has admitted that it was the different tone and narrative structure of The Hobbit which eventually convinced him that going back to Middle-Earth was a good idea – and one that would allow the filmmaker to do more than photo-copy the style of his Rings adaptation.

Martin Freeman (Sherlock) is portraying young Bilbo Baggins in both of Jackson’s Hobbit films, beginning with An Unexpected Journey (pun not intended). By early accounts, he appears to have nailed the character and, thus, lends all the more appeal to this long-gestating project.

You can check out Freeman as the youthful Bilbo in the latest Hobbit image below:

  1. I have this feeling that MIB3 will be the first big flop of 2012. That or Ghost Rider 2.

  2. I honestly had high hopes for Abraham Lincoln :VH but now hearing “historical biopic meets wanted” sounds ridiculous and cheesy. It’s like Hollywood is afraid to make a serious film because they fear it won’t make money.

    • ““historical biopic meets wanted” sounds ridiculous and cheesy.”

      An “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” didn’t?

  3. The Avengers and Promemthus images are good.

    Those movies are on my most anticipated movie list.

    I mean who needs another Men In Black 3? The first movie was great then the second one was awful and no needed but a third move also in 3D, I have to agree too that MIB 3 might be a big flop but I hope I am proven wrong.

    • Well technically this is the first “Men in Black 3″, but it is another “Men in Black movie”… lol

  4. What’s with Cap not wearing his face mask/helmet almost all the time? No me gusta!

    • I’ve been saying that since the first still photos came out. What the hell?! And Thor too! I understand in the dialogue pieces, but they’re BOTH in mid-action!

    • i went back and looked at the photo gallery for the film, and there are at least 2 action scenes where he is wearing his mask/cowl/whatever you call it. one is when he is fighting thor, the other is some battle scene. his mask is attached to his shirt, so i figure he must take it off due to getting hot or whatever kind of reason they write for him. i hope it makes more sense in the film. and thor only wore his helmet once in his movie, i believe it was when he was going to be made king, and then you never see it again. i suppose the movie is trying to be as grounded in relity as possible, and thors helmet is pretty cumbersome, and seems like it would get in the way during battle. whatever the reason, we will see when the movie opens in far away may!

    • I don’t like Cap’s helmet in the Avengers movie anyhow. I’m actually happy it’s off.

    • @ John Drake

      Seems like they are going for the Vemon treatment in that regard.

  5. Prometheus looks sick!

  6. That is one sexy Queen

  7. The Avengers pic looks awesome…
    (But I want to see the Hulk! :()

    • i have been saying that too! we need a better trailer with some jolly green giant!

    • let´s hope that hulk will look like in the two pics of the avengers.

  8. Avengers look awesome!! And Charlize Theron looks hot!! Hehe

  9. Yes Avengers continues to look good and I agree that Captain America actually looks better without the helmet. Actually no reason for him to wear it but obviously that would cause too much controversy amongst fanboys.

    It’s practically a fact of life but it’s something that deserves repeating.

    Charlize Theron is very hot, hot, hot!

  10. thats naomi rapace not charlize theron btw

    • Kaze,

      If you are talking about the Snow White pic above, then you are sadly mistaken. That is indeed Charlize Theron, playing the deliciously evil Queen. Naomi is not in this movie.

      Interestingly enough however, is the fact that both actresses ARE going to be in Prometheus. So if you like either of them, then that is the movie to see… although, if it plays anything like Aliens 3 & 4, it will be a complete flop (poor Newt).

      Personally, I’ll stick with Charlize any day. She’s a great actress, and as mentioned before, she’s HOT!!! :)

  11. also if you didnt know stark senior made the cap and his son made the iron man suit, both trying to recreate super-soldier-esque versions of the same thing. ones just human based and the other is machine based…..thats why i believe cap—is the weakest superhero ive ever seen………btw wheres my “Venom” movie?because i think after the FIRST punisher(which was much bettter than the sequel..i mean he trys/fakes out to stab a guy with an ice sickle) another anti-hero movie would be great especially with venom, since it could take a much darker and physically/mentally transformative pace at one of the most overlooked(inrecent times) anti-hero weve ever had.

    • Kaze,

      You actually liked the bucket of p**s that was the Thomas Jane Punisher? The only thing even a quarter-redeeming about it was the trio of supporting actors (Rebecca, Ben, & John), who made it bearable. While the action sequences/choreography were exceptional, Tom’s character “performance” was one of the most lifeless, soulless I’ve ever seen in a Marvel movie.

      On the other hand, Ray Stevenson Punisher was a considerable redemption to the franchise. At least he understood his character. Granted that it was a much darker, grittier film with strong language etc (certainly not for kids), but then that’s the nature of Punisher, so I had to put aside my personal reservations about that and accept it for what it was.

      If there were any action/choreography glitches in this one, I didn’t catch them. But I’d rather take a film that is strong on character and story than on just action. If it feels real, then it will be real.

      Regarding Cap, I kinda agree with you, in that he is not techno-powered or godly-powered, or gamma-powered, etc, so he appears to be weak by contrast. However, his SS-Serum-modified genes are the blending of different peak-human qualities (intelligence, strength, speed, agility, stamina, etc), and while he may not have as much of any one quality as the others, he has more qualities than any of them (a Renaissance Man, if you will). As such, he is the most “balanced” in the group…

      Also, it’s been said more than once in the comics that he is the “heart” of the Avengers, because he inspires the others to be the best they can be. That’s why I like him the most.

      • Ray Stevenson (and the film) may have looked more the part but Thomas Jane film was def the much better rmovie. Easily. Which bringsup the debate of how far you can astray from the source material in pursuit of a good movie.

        • I didn’t have any problem with the look. It was just the performance.

  12. also its nice to see will smith back where he belongs(my god i am legend was deplorable) and maybe, hell have fun with it once more.

  13. They go into alot of detail in the deleted scenes about Thor and Lokis helmets. They are mostly cerimonial. You notice you dont see Loki wearing his either except fpt Thors corination and once Loki himself is made king.
