It wasn't until 1997's Armageddon that he had a meatier role with more lines, playing one of the rough-and-tumble drilling crew drafted into blowing up an approaching asteroid.

Marvel mystery movie moves release date in summer 2014

Whatever it is that Marvel Studios has planned for showing us in the summer of 2014, it just got moved a little bit back. The untitled Marvel movie, which is heavily rumored to be the cosmically supercharged Guardians of the Galaxy group, has had its release date moved from May 16 to its new berth, August 1, 2014.

Several online outlets have heard that Marvel will officially announce the Guardians of the Galaxy movie during their presentation next week at Comic-Con. Marvel has already promised to talk about Iron Man 3 and the sequels to Thor and Captain America there, and likely mention what their plans are for Avengers 2.

Item 47 extra short to be included on Avengers DVD

I've got to say, I do dig what Marvel Studios is doing with these short "one-shot" films they're adding to their movie DVD releases. With the Captain America and Thor flicks, we got two day in the life of Agent Coulson stories. Now with Clark Gregg out of the Marvel cinematic universe (for the time being, if you know what I mean, wink wink), I was wondering if Marvel would keep going on with their short films.

The answer to that question is yes.

The Dark Knight Rises run time revealed

When you go see The Dark Knight Rises, make sure that you hit the bathroom first. The run time for the highly anticipated Batman movie is finally known thanks to a published report filed by the British Board of Film Classification, and it's 164 minutes and 27 seconds.

In practical terms, that makes The Dark Knight Rises 2 hours and 44 minutes long. When it comes out it will be the longest Batman movie made to date, beating the run time of The Dark Knight by 12 more minutes.

Ted and Magic Mike have magic opening weekends

Perhaps it was aided by the heat wave that's gripping most of North America but this weekend's box office proved to be a much needed shot in the arm for the summer movie season. We've got a new number one movie, Ted, and healthy openings for three new movies.

Seth Macfarlane's raunchy comedy about a talking teddy bear named Ted emerged as the number one picture, grossing $54.1 million this weekend. With such a strong opening accomplished, Ted will soon be in the black. It's also shown that the Family Guy creator has something to offer television's bigger sister, the motion picture business.

Trailer: The Man with the Iron Fists

Very little has come out about The Man with the Iron Fists, the directoral debut of Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, aka RZA, the Wu-Tang Clan producer / singer and occasional actor and film composer. That all changed Thursday when the first trailer for RZA's movie hit the internet, offering us our first glimpse at an interesting blend of kung fu action and fantasy visuals, set to a beat of hip-hop music.

This thing's got Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune, MMA fighter David Bautista, Jamie Chung, Vietnamese kickboxer Cung Le, Byron Mann (the guy who played Ryu in that Street Fighter movie years ago!) and RZA himself as the guy who makes the iron fists. And this guy named Quentin Tarantino is producing it.

Russell Crowe in a kung fu movie? Believe it in HD:

Spec'd: Marvel's The Avengers DVD

Arriving on September 26, 2012 on home video is Marvel's The Avengers, the highest-grossing superhero movie of all-time and present third-highest grossing movie ever. Paramount Home Video is handling the home video release of the film (as per their agreement with Walt Disney, the owners/theatrical distribution studio.)

The Avengers will have three disc versions: a 4-disc Blu-ray, a 2-disc Blu-ray DVD and a single-disc DVD. Perhaps the most important bonus feature listed on the discs will be an audio commentary track by screenwriter/director Joss Whedon, so expect a lot of comic book geeking out when you pop that one on the player.

A Clash of Perspectives: Roundtabling Season Two of Game of Thrones (Part 2)

Mo Ryan and Amin Javadi are nice enough to join us for the back half of the conversation, as we evaluate the overall filmmaking quality of the season (specifically in regards to its predecessor), the importance of the Battle of the Blackwater, and, most importantly, continue to go back-and-forth over the deconstruction of Arya Stark.

Did you miss the first part?  Shame on you.  Read it here.

Forget who’s involved?  Double shame.  Here you go:

A Clash of Perspectives: Roundtabling Season Two of Game of Thrones (Part 1)

Winterfell has been burnt to the ground, the Imp has been stripped of power, and Stannis has been defeated – but there’s so much more that didn’t make the final cut, and more still to discuss and debate, regardless of its inclusion or omission.

There’s so much to wrap one’s head around, in fact, that a tidy little roundtable I had planned tripled in size and had to be split in two halves.  For this first part, a crack panel of George R.R. Martin stalkers and TV critics tackled the inherent quality of the source material, A Clash of Kings; the filmmaking chops of Game of Thrones showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff; and the dopiness – or lack thereof – of the average HBO viewer.

Proof that Keanu Reeves is making a kick-ass action movie

I didn't know that Keanu Reeves was making a kung-fu action movie in Taiwai until I learned about it on Reddit, but that's exactly what the star of The Matrix trilogy is doing. Reeves isn't just starring in Man of Tai Chi, he's also directing it too. And judging from this behind-the-scenes video that got posted on YouTube, it's looking promising.

Keanu may have picked up inspiration from watching the Wachowski brothers make their Matrix movies, but the automated dolly cam that Reeves is employing on Man of Tai Chi goes way beyond the bullet time visual style pioneered by the W's.

Big Trouble in Little China's Jack Burton watches the Prometheus trailer

Question: what do you get when you take a character that Kurt Russell played in the 1980s (inspired by John Wayne, no less) and have him comment on Ridley Scott's latest opus, Prometheus? Why, dear reader, it's the internet's latest mash-up and collision of two cinematic worlds.

Russell's character is, of course, two-fisted trucker Jack Burton from the 1986 John Carpenter movie Big Trouble in Little China. If you've seen Big Trouble, then you may recall Burton's style of saying what's on his mind and in his larger-than-life style.

A new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises

Well, this was unexpected. Nokia has debuted a new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises online and it's got a lot of new footage that I haven't seen before.

If you're already amped to see TDKR, and you don't want even a slight bit of your movie experience compromised by a spoiler or two, I might consider not watching the new trailer. If you do decide to watch it, check out my comments after the video.


What I like:

 -- Bane and his presense in this trailer.
