How 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' will hide Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy

Black Widow is in mama-bear mode. Mark Ruffalo has his fingers in his ears, trying desperately not to Hulk out as Scarlett Johansson fires a pistol at a robotic menace that is shooting up the bar where they’re hiding. Or, wait a second …

Is that her?

“We only serve real Scarlett here,” deadpans Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon. But that’s not exactly true. READ FULL STORY

'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Why Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and The Vision will fight the bad fight

An unforgiving artificial intelligence program gets top billing in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there will be plenty of pain caused by a pair of twins and a being known as a “synthezoid,” too.

Among the new characters in next May’s superhero team-up are Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and the synthetic humanoid creation known as The Vision. The trio has been a long part of Avengers comic-book history, though their allegiance is always questionable.

This time around, there’s no doubt: they’re troublemakers—although you can’t rule out salvation for them.

“They’re on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they’re dealing with powers that they’re not used to,” says director Joss Whedon. READ FULL STORY

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things,” says the director, who most recently co-penned a comic book follow-up to his 1986 kung fu-fantasy film Big Trouble in Little China. “I was doing too much—music and writing and all this shit. I had to take a break. I’m developing a couple of things. But we’ll see. There’s no urgency.”)

Box office report: 'Neighbors' evicts 'Spider-Man 2' from top spot

SUNDAY UPDATE: Neighbors is No. 1 movie at the weekend box office with an estimated $51.1 million.

ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.

Meanwhile, The Other Woman continued to show legs in its third week of release, earning $2.8 million for a total gross of $55.2 million.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past': See the post-credit Mystique sequence from 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' -- VIDEO

X-MEN-CLIP.jpg

If you stayed past the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this weekend, you may have gotten a peek at this summer’s highly-anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past. In this brief sequence, Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) helps save some fellow mutants, including Toad and Havoc, escape a military base.

It’s a moment that showcases a different mutant than we saw in X-Men: First Class and, according to screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg, is representative of her arc in Days of Future Past. Teases Kinberg, “Is she going to remain the good, conscious human that Charles raised at the end of X-Men: First Class, or is she going to become the cold blooded assassin that we know from [the first] X-Men?”

Kevin Smith talks 'Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Jay-and-Silent-Bobs-Super-Groovy-Cartoon-Movie.jpg

Despite its seemingly kiddie-friendly name, the new film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie is not suitable for children — unless they’re very young. “You can sit down with a child that doesn’t perceive vulgarity and that child will totally delight in it, because it’s colorful to look at,” says director and prolific podcaster Kevin Smith, who wrote the film. “But if that child understands content at all, you’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.”

Behind the Shield: The surreal making of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' -- EXCLUSIVE

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it’s getting harder for the superhero to tell the difference. In the latest installment from Marvel Studios’ interlocked franchise, Chris Evans’ unfrozen genetically-enhanced warrior from the Greatest Generation is still unsure of his place in the world after helping to save it twice: once from the forces of Red Skull in 2011’s original Captain America, and again from an alien invasion in 2012’s The Avengers.

The Winter Soldier features an eponymous new villain — a bioengineered assassin with a mechanical arm—who is targeting the leadership of the global protection force S.H.I.E.L.D. The film, directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (already being courted by Marvel for more), reteams Evans with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as top operatives for the group. But Cap (alias Steve Rogers) is beginning to question whether he and S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the same side. Sebastian Stan plays the Winter Soldier, and anyone who saw the first film knows his character’s history with Rogers runs deep. If there’s an overall theme in the movie, it’s this: Old friends make the worst enemies.

EW visited the set of The Winter Soldier last July. It’s the day after Comic-Con ended. Footage screened for fans at the annual convention had lathered the geeky faithful into a frenzy, but no one is celebrating on set. Instead of passing around high fives, the cast members are punching each other in the face. READ FULL STORY
