Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron: Robert Downey Jr. has shared his first photo from the set of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron. We don't think that's Iron Man's new costume, but we'll have to wait until the movie arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015 to be sure. [Twitter]

 

Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon: A new version of Flash Gordon is heading to the big screen. Alex Raymond created the sci-fi hero for a comic strip adventure first published in 1934. Since then it's been adapted in just about every media imaginable, most notably the 1980 movie version (starring Sam Jones). Now Fox has acquired screen rights and has hired J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay (Star Trek 3) to write a new script, based on a treatment by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau). [Heat Vision]

 

The Help

Blonde: Jessica Chastain, who has earned two Academy Award nominations so far (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty), is "nearing a deal" to play Marilyn Monroe for director Andrew Dominik in Blonde. Dominik also wrote the script, based on a novel by Joyce Carol Oates, though his approach to the complex source material has not yet been revealed; the novel weighs in at more than 700 pages and draws inspiration from Monroe's entire personal life and professional career.

The Love Punch Trailer: Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson star as a divorced couple who must team up after their shared fortune is stolen from them in The Love Punch. According to a breezy new trailer, their solution is to go to Paris and steal a diamond! The comedy opens in theaters on May 23. [YouTube]
