    The November Man has premiered its latest trailer and it is a joy to see Pierce Brosnan back in action for the first time since he retired as James Bond

    Brosnan stars in Roger Donaldson’s The November Man as a highly trained ex-CIA agent who is been living the high life of retirement in Europe. He’s lured out of retirement for “one last job” and as you can guess, it is not so smooth.

    The November Man, so-called because that is Brosnan’s character’s nickname, also stars Luke Bracey, Olga Kurylenko and Will Patton.

    Look for The November Man August 27. 

    Pierce Brosnan is Back!
    Since walking away from being Bond, we haven't seen Brosnan do action like we do in The November Man.

    The long anticipated trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is finally here!

    We’ve got our first real look at the budding relationship between Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey.

    I mean, that Fifty Shades of Grey teaser was nice, but this is the full monty.

    The teaser effectively introduces the two characters who go on a wild love affair ripped from the pages of E.L. James’ bestselling book. Steele and Grey will embark on the most passionate, and extreme of sexual relationships that will be explored even further in future chapters Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

    Must be an almost blissful world that the character Mad Max lives in. Wait, what? Anyone who knows the George Miller-directed series knows that is the furthest from the truth. This is a post-apocalypse, people!

    But, “It’s a Lovely Day” is the tagline for the first poster, released for the arrival of Comic-Con, for Mad Max: Fury Road.

    Tom Hardy steps into the Australian Outback-wandering Mad Max's shoes, and from early indications, he’s a good fit to follow up the role made famous by Mel Gibson. Hardy also has some heady company in a co-star with Oscar winner Charlize Theron and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult.

    Look for Mad Max: Fury Road to hit theaters May 15, 2015, and we’re chatting with the cast and Miller tomorrow here at Comic-Con, so stay tuned for some details on this highly anticipated film.

    Hot off those Iron Man and Scarlet Witch concept art posters that debuted yesterday for the start of Comic-Con, Marvel Studios has released two more today.

    Who is it, you ask?

    Why, it's two superheroes who just joined forces in one of the best Marvel movies ever, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    Captain America gets his concept art poster debut and he's joined by Black Widow, who appears to be doing better battling Ultron's army than the stars-and-stripes superhero. 

    Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to invade Comic-Con on Saturday night with the full cast, including the two who have their poster debut today, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. 

    To get ready for the big sequel landing May 1, 2015, watch The Avengers online and stay with Movie Fanatic all week for all the Comic-Con news!

    The story of Fifty Shades of Grey follows a young woman who gets caught in the spell of a charming, albeit sexually adventurous man and her struggles with the relationship.

    As we get firmly entrenched in Comic-Con and we bring you the best that Hollywood is teasing for the upcoming years, we're reminded of one fact.

    Sure, we're going to talk to the cast of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and even Daniel Radcliffe for Horns

    But this annual pop culture convention was founded and is at its greatest when it is firmly promoting comic book-based movies. Heck, it's in the title of the convention!

    And we were so inspired but what we've seen so far here at Comic-Con, that we looked back over comic book movie history and singled out the 21 greatest turns by any actor or actress in a comic-book movie. 

    Watch The Avengers online and there might be one or two in that flick. And there is a certain someone who won an Oscar for his role that can be seen when you watch The Dark Knight online

    Then, there's the Marvel of a performance that was downright legendary you see when you watch X-Men online

    So, who are these 21 "super" comic book movie stars? 

    Click through and enjoy our 21 best comic book movie performances of all-time!

    Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 3
    Robert Downey Jr. could not have been a better choice to play Tony Stark and his metal plated superhero alter ego, Iron Man. But, it was his fourth turn as the billionaire that truly was his best turn. The way he channeled a post traumatic stress that he clearly had from the Battle of New York in The Avengers was simply powerful.

    Benedict Cumberbatch is in San Diego for Comic-Con and it is largely to promote his upcoming role in DreamWorks Animation’s The Penguins of Madagascar. He’s also probably going to be a part of the presentation for his role as Smaug in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

    Benedict Cumberbatch

    Yet, given that this is a comic book convention, rumors are flying about his attachment to the upcoming Marvel movie, Doctor Strange. Some have even argued that it is down to him and Tom Hardy, who is also here in San Diego for Comic-Con to promote his turn in Mad Max: Fury Road.

    Immediately following The Penguins of Madagascar presentation, it didn’t take long for someone to ask Cumberbatch about Doctor Strange. He told MTV News something quite interesting that leads us to believe Cumberbatch will not play the part in Scott Derrickson’s upcoming Doctor Strange.

    “As far as I’m aware, even if that was the case, it couldn’t work out because I’m doing a little play called Hamlet in London. So I don’t think I could even if that was in the cards. It sounds like a fantastic project. It’s a shame if I miss out, but who knows?” Cumberbatch said.

    And now to read between the lines, given that he clearly knows when Doctor Strange will film, we can at least confirm that he was approached about the role. “I couldn’t possibly comment,” Cumberbatch said.

    The plot thickens! 

    Will Doctor Strange become one of our favorite superhero movies? We'll see, but the below ones are!

    The Dark Knight
    You want to know how good The Dark Knight is? How about it was the first superhero movie to earn an Oscar in a major category! In fact, Heath Ledger's Joker may be the best superhero villain of all time.

    Here at Comic-Con there is one superhero that is towering above all the others and that is Batman.

    It’s the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary and DC Comics and Warner Bros. are celebrating with something going on during all four days. The original TV Batman, Adam West, is even here.

    But, fans are disappointed that the newest Batman is too busy filming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in Michigan to make it out. But, a piece of him has arrived. As part of the anniversary celebration, Warner Bros. released a new image of Affleck as Batman and we love the ultra close-up look.

    Batman has always been known for his hardened chin and scowl look that honestly should be trademark. And although many were upset when Affleck was cast, just looking at this new photo should appease many. We were pleased with the casting, and even more thrilled when we got that first Affleck as Batman photo.

    We are still holding out hope that there will be some sort of surprise during the Warner Bros. panel for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But, then again, we’re eternal optimists.

    At least, we have the below photo. And check out all our Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice photos and get ready for the 2016 release and watch Man of Steel online.

    Ben Affleck is Batman!
    Ben Affleck looks quite the Batman in a new photo from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    Pixels is here in Comic-Con in the most impeccably astounding way. They are taking over part of the Hard Rock Hotel, as Comic-Con rages across the street at the San Diego Convention Center, and turned it into a classic video arcade from the 80s. 

    How perfect is that given the film's premise about aliens misinterpreting signals from earth as a threat from us to invade them. These signals come in the form of 80s video games and as such the aliens decide on a preemptive strike to attack Earth in the form of what is threatening them -- Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and a slew of other classic games. 

    The president (Kevin James) enlists the help of some classic video game players (led by Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage). And it's Dinklage, in character, that has a message for you in the following video. 

    We reported on how Pixels revealed the arcade games that would be in the movie and all of those are expected to be in full force at the Sony location inside the Hard Rock Hotel here at Comic-Con.   

    So stop by, and you may have more than just fun. The high score winner at each of the games will be entered for a chance to have a walk on role on Pixels as it shoots in Toronto.

    These guys are going to save the world?!

    When it was announced that fans were getting a Hot Tub Time Machine 2 the first question that popped in the head was where (or more specifically when) would the comedy take the laughs next.

    The answer has arrived as the first red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is here and Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke head to the… future!

    Things are pretty much as they were at the end of the first movie that gave us those awesome Hot Tub Time Machine quotes.

    Corddry is the man who “invented the internet” and Robinson is a huge pop star. But, that world comes crashing down when a hater shoots Corddry and he comes within inches of death.

    The boys hit the hot tub once again to go back in time and stop the shooting. But, they end up in the future? You have to watch the above trailer to see how that all makes hysterical sense.  

    Hot Tub Time Machine 2 lands in theaters December 25! And until then, you can always watch Hot Tub Time Machine online

    Paramount was wise to not mention anything as to what they would be presenting at Comic-Con today because it left those of us who write about such things a million possibilities to ponder.

    When we listed our 23 movies we want at Comic-Con, one of them was Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

    Interstellar Logo

    And you can see why when you check out that Interstellar trailer. This thing is eye-popping and looks powerful with Matthew McConaughey in the lead.

    Well, Nolan and McConaughey made their Comic-Con debut and surprised those gathered in Hall H for a little tease as to the November 7-arriving flick.

    McConaughey started by talking about his director and what compelled him once he read the story, and how his interest in the project came in that order. “He’s always out for original,” he said. “Everything he has to do, it has to be original.”

    Then, he introduced the man himself. And considering all the Comic-Con-worthy fare he’s created over the years (watch The Dark Knight online for just one), it’s amazing this is his first time.

    “I came to see what all the fuss was about, and judging by the crowd, I’m not disappointed,” said Nolan to the standing and cheering faithful.

    “I’ve always been a huge fan of science fiction. I’d grown up being amazed by science fiction of the past, obviously Star Wars and 2001. These are things that made an incredible impression on me. But more than that, I grew up in an era when to be an astronaut was the highest ambition of any child.”

    A longtime proponent of seeing movies on the big screen, Nolan stressed how he hoped that audiences wouldn’t wait for a film such as Interstellar to arrive in other formats.

    “You need the biggest canvas possible.”

    Even though many that have worked on Interstellar say it is Nolan’s most ambitious movie yet, the helmer did not tip his cap in any way to tease the audience as to what they will be in for in terms of what it took him to make it.

    “I’m not going to tell you what the technical challenges are because I want you to come see the movie,” Nolan added.

    We told you about Christopher Nolan’s Comic-Con debut at the Paramount panel. Earlier in that Paramount presentation, we got our first look in the form of a still from SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water.

    SpongeBob SquarePants is a beloved animated character, in case you had no idea, and in this particular cinematic version, the film is CG meets live action. You can see in the first still released today at Comic-Con that they look kind of wild “in the flesh.”

    Check out the SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water poster and get ready for SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water on February 13, 2015 with a cast led by Antonio Banderas!

    Luc Besson is no stranger to creating strong female leads in his films. From The Professional to The Fifth Element and now Lucy, the man has a gift. But where does Lucy rank among the anti-heroines of Besson’s past?

    Lucy Scarlett Johansson Still

    Scarlett Johansson is Lucy, and as the audience begins her journey with her, she’s dating a man for barely a week when he compels her into a Taiwan hotel where her life will forever change. She’s handcuffed to a briefcase and promptly taken to a room where she has experimental drugs surgically implanted in her system. When she’s kicked in a melee, the drugs enter her system and allow her to access more and more and more of her brain power.

    Besson’s obsession with the science of evolution is all over this film in the largest sense, as well as his keen knowledge about neural cells in its smallest. And he has done his research and peppered his film with verbal and video proof of the science he is fictionally exploring on the screen.

    It’s a head scratcher of a film meets an action fiesta that has clear shades of some of Besson’s past work. And the way he cuts in his music is another impeccable means with which the director brings in emotion. One scene in particular with his use of Mozart’s Requiem in D is beyond brilliant. If you know the history of that piece of music, it could not be more perfect given Lucy’s ride.

    Lucy Scarlett Johansson Morgan Freeman

    Johansson was born to play Lucy. The way she morphs from innocent to impatiently imperious genius is brilliant. Watching her simultaneously seek revenge on her kidnappers while also helping the science of evolution evolve as a living experiment, is a true joy. And in that vein, Morgan Freeman’s turn as an expert in the field of the human brain and its capacity for intelligence versus what humans truly access, is his best role in years.

    Yet, Lucy’s journey in some ways feels slightly incomplete. Its third act is not what we expected and that is not necessarily a bad thing. When one is chronicling the experience that is a human being using their full brain capacity and all that that means, while still featuring an action movie landscape that cooks, it is quite a lot to ask of any movie.

    Our Lucy review finds that Johansson’s performance makes this movie and Besson’s intelligence and talents as a filmmaker give us something profound to think about. And as far as where it ranks in the Besson filmography, it's somewhere easily in the top half. 

    Watch The Fifth Element online and head out to see Lucy

    If there was any actor who embodies Hercules more than Dwayne Johnson, we’d like to meet them. But looks, persona and talent can only carry a movie so far. When it comes to Brett Ratner’s Hercules, turns out Johnson more than has enough to make this a pretty good, fun, ride.

    Hercules Dwayne Johnson

    As teased in the Hercules trailer, Johnson plays the legendary warrior after he’s more than earned an iconic reputation and he’s ready to settle into a life as a husband and father. As he is half god, the gods are none too happy that this gift to earth has chosen to walk away. Hercules loses much and launches on a mission that will solidify his name as a legend.

    Ratner was smart to surround his star with acting talents that adds serious gravitas to the picture. John Hurt, Ian McShane and Rufus Sewell all shine and give the sword and sandal epic a classical feel that allows Johnson to truly shine as the title character. And that is exactly why Hercules largely (and surprisingly) works.

    Whereas the Kellan Lutz starring The Legend of Hercules felt the need to treat their tale as an origins story with a feel that fell largely flat, Johnson’s Hercules is a living and breathing hero that is filled with color, history and most importantly for an action flick, motivation. That is because of the story that Johnson is given to work with that follows his effort to bring down a tyrannical warlord. With Johnson bent on a mission with might and right on his side, this Hercules actually has some true meaning and power behind it.

    Most sword and sandals movies that employ that method of storytelling are the ones we remember. And surprisingly, Hercules is one of those. But, let’s not kid ourselves -- this is no Lawrence of Arabia. But, what it is is a fantastically fun summer movie that puts a new take on a (very) old hero and for that it should be saluted.

    And our Hercules review must also point out that Ratner has been fodder for press’ ire over the years for many reasons, especially for his films that missed the mark.

    But, might we say that with his recent Tower Heist and now Hercules, could it be that Ratner is achieving a new level of artistic success with big-time action movies that employ heart and hilarity in just the right doses with the result being something audiences can truly enjoy?

    Dare we say: Yes.

    The boys have got their own movie, as you can tell from that wickedly good Penguins of Madagascar trailer.

    Here at Comic-Con, the creative team descended on San Diego and brought along stars Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich and… a new clip! Check it out below!

    DreamWorks Animation also released a new poster for the film that follows the boys on their own adventure (in the slideshow below).

    And as directors Simon J. Smith and Eric Darnell told us yesterday, this film will pick up where Madagascar 3 left off. They also admitted that “the TV show exists in a different universe!” So don’t expect any story or timeline crossover. 

    Penguins of Madagascar lands in theaters November 26 and we cannot wait to see how Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private fare on their own. From what we’ve seen so far, it should be funny and adventurous.

    Hot on the heels of the Iron Man and Scarlet Witch concept art posters and the Captain America and Black Widow concept art posters release this week for Comic-Con, Marvel has unleashed two more.

    They introduce Quicksilver as he races through Ultron’s Army, and then there’s Hawkeye. Is it us, or do you see in the slideshow below of all our Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art, that Jeremy Renner’s character is having a little trouble in the battle?!

    The film brings our favorite heroes from The Avengers back, and adds a few newbies to the mix (Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch), and a baddie that is legendary in the comics in Ultron (James Spader).

    We are eager to hear from Joss Whedon and the entire Avengers: Age of Ultron cast tomorrow here at Comic-Con, especially Paul Bettany as The Vision!

    Watch The Avengers online and get ready for Avengers: Age of Ultron May 1, 2015.

    The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is landing here at Comic-Con tomorrow and to celebrate, Warner Bros. has released the film's first poster. 

    Peter Jackson said the first teaser would be ready "sometime soon" and we believe that that "sometime" is tomorrow. So check back for our first look at the final chapter in Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy that began as you can see when you watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey online

    As you recall, at the end of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the evil dragon has certainly left its place as taking over the home of the drawfs. But, he is set to unleash hell on the world around him and that will be the crux of our final The Hobbit film.

    This first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies poster is something of a stunner with its featuring Smaug towering over one of our favorite warriors. Watch The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug online to get ready for the big reveal tomorrow and for the release of the third film in Jackson's latest Middle Earth trilogy this December.

    The weekend movie preview is pretty action packed for this final weekend in July. 

    We've got Dwayne Johnson in action in the swords and sandals epic Hercules and Scarlett Johansson swings into action for Luc Besson in the sci-fi head turner Lucy.

    Let's break it down...

    Hercules: Johnson could not have been a better choice to play the title character. Not only does he look like him (clearly), but at his current age, it truly works in this story of a war weary hero who is ready to settle into the simple life. Of course we know that doesn't last very long and he's swept up into a whole new adventure.

    Hercules Poster
    The first Hercules poster! Dwayne Johnson so looks the part, no?

    Our Hercules review pointed out that this works on two levels, the joy of watching Johnson in a role he was born to play and director Bratt Ratner truly coming into his own as a filmmaker.

    Lucy: Johansson and Besson have joined forces to bring to the screen an action flick that makes your brain work hard. It's the rarest of combinations, but considering it is written and directed by the man who brought us The Professional and The Fifth Element, that should hardly surprise.

    Lucy Poster
    The Lucy poster has premiered! Is it us, or has Scarlett Johansson never looked so intense?

    When Johansson's Lucy becomes an unwilling drug mule by having drugs surgically implanted in her. When she's punched in the gut, they are released and she gains super human abilities. Her brain has become unlocked. As our Lucy review reported, this is a fantastic use of both Johansson's and Besson's talents. 

    Feel like staying in this weekend? Several titles have landed recently on digital download. Watch Transcendence online and see Depp deliver and watch Rio 2 online and you'll make the kids' weekend!
