Posters galore for Olympus Has Fallen, 42 and Spring Breakers, a TV Spot for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and pictures from Star Trek Into Darkness and The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has Fallen has two new posters today. The first is of Aaron Eckhart, who is playing the president BEFORE he gets half his face burnt off and he becomes evil.

Wait… right?

Never mind. In the other poster we have Morgan Freeman playing the guy who gives Batman his toys. Do I have the wrong film again? Damnit. Well, it’s also possible Aaron Eckhart is playing the President who gets kidnapped, and Morgan Freeman is playing the Secretary of State or something. So it’s a good film.


42 has a new poster, and I honestly like everything about it. I like the tag line, “In a game divided by color, he made us see greatness.” I like the cool pose and the classic colors which just feel like baseball. And I like that Han Solo isn’t in it with his ridiculous eyebrows from the trailer. Click the ’42’ above and watch the trailer…

And now you understand.

Spring Breakers

Holy Jesus Mother Mary and WOWZA. Screw the James Franco poster for Spring Breakers. Look at Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson. I think Vanessa Hudgens is a knockout, and the two of them are making her look bad. I mean, DAMN. I might have to see this.

For reals, yo’.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has a new TV spot from Facebook that’s not even a little funny, and it doesn’t show Olivia Wilde. Why would I see this again?

Anyone? Bueller?

Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness has a bunch of new photos from the upcoming Entertainment Weekly, and while I think they all look pretty decent, it’s the last photo, the one of Captain Kirk dangling from the side of the ship, that has me most intrigued and most feels like Star Trek. I guess I can just imagine William Shatner in that pose.

Also, aren’t they in space? Shouldn’t the artificial gravity always be moving in the same direction? How is he falling sideways? I hope they don’t explain it. That would be so much better. Most likely it’s from that scene in the trailer where you see the Enterprise crash land on Earth (or some other planet, and it might be a different ship, but you see my point).

Whatever. This is cool.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has a new photo from the set, and I can’t really get much out of it, but there are a few things worth noting that may mean something. First, There’s a very large green screen on the left. Big enough for someone to webswing in front of. Possibly. There’s also some scaffolding, the kind I’d imagine you’d need if staging a webswinging scene. Also, director Marc Webb mentioned Dramamine, which is for motion sickness. So maybe Andrew Garfield gets motion sickness from webswinging.

What I’m saying is I think they’re webswinging. OKAY?
