Posters for Pain & Gain and Oblivion, pics from The Hobbit 2, Man of Steel and Texas Chainsaw 3D, and featurettes for Les Miserables.
Pain & Gain
Pain & Gain has a new poster that shows the eye fucking of a life time going on between Mark Wahlberg, The Rock and me.
The Rock is giving it to me all cocky and cool, but Marky Mark is more sensual. He’s willing to do the ol’ reacharound. And for that, I’m thankful.
Oblivion has a new poster that makes Tom Cruise look small. Which makes this the single most accurate poster of all time. Actually, if that waterfall is 12 feet tall, THEN it’s the most accurate poster of all time. We’ll have to wait for that until we know for sure. It does show some imagination though.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has a new photo of Bilbo in the lair of Smaug. Cause that’s where the gold is. It’s interesting how they’ve been releasing these photos before the first Hobbit film, An Unexpected Journey, is even released. Nonetheless, it’s cool to get a sneak peak at Bilbo when he enters the Dragon’s lair.
Man of Steel
Man of Steel has a new photo up from the cover of Studio Cine Live, whatever that is. Anyways, I think the pic shows an arrogant Superman (sorry, Mr. Cavill, you look like a smug prick) and a poorly designed suit. Superman Returns had the same problem. They darkened him. They made it too dark, and while that may work for what they’re doing, Superman should be the LIGHT in the darkness, not just another part of the dark. And whatever the fuck is on his arm looks stupid.
Texas Chainsaw 3D
Texas Chainsaw 3D has two new pics of the babes from the film, Alexandra Daddario and Tania Reynolds. Both are super hot, and I hope they show the goods. It’s the best thing for their careers.
Les Miserables has a couple new featurettes that cover various aspects of the film. The first featurette is about the costumes, the second is on the makeup and hair, the third is on the sets, and the fourth deals with a musical addition and emphasis on the changes that happened internally to Jean Valjean in the film, and how that is truly central to the tale.
They’re all interesting featurettes, but the first three struck me more than the last one. I really liked hearing about the work that went into making the film the right way, with the thought behind the sets and visual styles of the characters.
