First official photo from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Details have been few and far between on the upcoming and much-anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Until now, with the release of this photo of Henry Cavill as Superman. Sure, it still doesn't give much away, but it does hint at a darker, edgier direction for Superman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck as Batman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has a UK release date of 29th April 2016 and a US release date of 6th May 2016.



New teaser image for Jurassic World

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has just tweeted an image from the set of the upcoming Jurassic World, and it's enough to get our juices flowing.

It doesn't give too much away, see for yourself.

Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Judy Greer, and has a US/UK release date of the 12th June 2015.


Mad Max: Fury Road, images and release date

It may still be some way off, but the excitement is certainly starting to build for the long anticipated re-boot of the classic Mad Max series.

To further fuel the excitement, Entertainment Weekly have just released a set of image stills from the movie. Feast your eyes upon these beauties.

Mad Max: Fury Road stars James Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, and is directed by the original series’ director George Miller. It has a tentative release date (UK/US) of 15th May 2015.

Have a look at some of the images here…

First pic of Ben Whishaw as Q in Skyfall

Fans of the BBC's The Hour would have been rightly excited when the announcement was made a little while back that Ben Whishaw had even cast to star alongside Daniel Craig as Q in Sam Mendes' upcoming Bond installment Skyfall.

Albeit a massive departure from the Q we're used to seeing in Bond movies, with the iconic Desmond Llewelyn filling the role for so many years, to be followed briefly (and somewhat less successfully in my opinion) by John Cleese in the Pierce Brosnan Bond era, Whishaw is a fine acting talent, and I for one am looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the role.

Well now we catch a glimpse of what the new Q will look like. Not much to go on, but they're clearly tapping into the current computer-geek chic look that's so popular.

What do you think? Will he be a hit?

Skyfall has a release date in the UK of the 26th October 2012, a release date of the 9th November for Canada and the US, and a release date of the 22nd November 2012 in Australia.

Matt Damon in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

In 2009 Neill Blomkamp's low-budget sci-fi movie District 9 was a real surprise hit, and put the South African director on the map.

Since then, Blomkamp as been pretty quiet, although news is starting to appear on his new movie Elysium. Apparently there has been a lot of secrecy surrounding his new project, but images of its star – none other than Matt Damon – have begun appearing.

The story, according to IMDb goes, “In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium.

That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.”

Elysium also stars Jodie Foster as Secretary Rhodes, as well as William Fichtner and Blomkamp favourite Sharlto Copley.

Elysium as a release date of the 1st March 2013 in the UK and the US, with a release date of 7th March 2013 for Australia. No dates have yet been released for Canada.

Images and Release Dates for del Toro’s Pacific Rim

Ok, so it's been a wee while since my last post. Guess I needed a break after all the hype of Pometheus at the start of June. Anyway, I'm back with renewed vigour, and a cracker of a movie to report about…

On the eve of Comic Com comes the first images of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Reported on this blog a year back, Pacific Rim is a sci-fi epic with “a group of humans piloting robots against an alien invasion of earth” as I so eloquently put it last July.

Courtesy of EW we have some of the first photos to be released of the stars in 'uniform'. First, Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther, Thor)…

Followed by Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) and Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) …

Of course, there's a bit more to the movie than my original summary.

From /, Del Toro describes the movie “There’s much more to it than the giant monsters and giant robots. We want to make it a big what if: what would happen in the real world if a twenty-five story thing came out of the sea and started destroying cities? How would the world change? What weapons do we need to develop to fight a thing like that? It’s not a fantastic distant future to which we have no relationship. We wanted to make it in the now.”

Pacific Rim has a release date of July 11th 2013 in Australia, and a release date if July 12th 2013 for the US and UK. No Canadian date as of yet.

Vin Diesel in Riddick

Vin Diesel’s Riddick – the much-anticipated sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick – has finished shooting and is now in post-production, ready for a 2013 release.

Vin himself has even been kind enough to post the following movie still on his Facebook page.

In terms of plot, according to Total Film “The new film finds Riddick cast away and left for dead on a barren, sun-scorched planet, upon which he appears to be the only living creature. Unhappily for him, however, that assessment soon turns out to be incorrect.

Pursued by a race of lethal alien predators, Riddick is left with no other option but to set off an emergency beacon… a beacon that alerts a group of ruthless mercenaries to his whereabouts. If the aliens don’t get him first, this lot surely will!”

Sound good? Stay posted to The All Action No Plot Movie Blog for updates on release dates when they become available!

Django Unchained, first photos and release dates

There’s considerable excitement brewing over the new Quentin Tarantino movie Django Unchained.

And not without good reason of course – the genius mind behind such modern classics as Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction made a welcome return to form in 2009 with Inglorious Basterds (some may argue that he never lost his form…), and his newest project promises much.

In typical Tarantino style we get an excellent cast list consisting of today’s biggest stars sprinkled with a healthy dose of yesterday’s screen stars and the odd cult figure thrown in. How does Leonardo di Caprio, Jamie Foxx, Christophe Waltz, Samuel L Jackson, Sacha Baren Cohen, Kurt Russell and Don Johnson sound?

As far as the story, this from IMDb, “Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz, buys the freedom of a slave, Django, and trains him to become his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django’s wife who is under the hands of Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner.”

As for release dates, Django Unchained will hit theatres in the US on the 25th December 2012, the UK on the 18th January 2013 and Australia on the 26th January 2013.

First trailer for G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation

Ok, this IS the All Action No Plot Movie Blog, so today it seems fitting to show you the new trailer for a movie which qualifies for the blog on all counts! Move over Trasnformers and The Expendables, cause G.I. Joe is back in town. 
Look, I don’t know about you but I was just a bit disappointed by the original I have to say. As a Gen X kid, I grew up playing with Transformers and G.I. Joe (although in the UK they were called Action Force), so imagine my delight at getting to watch movies about those very same toys when I grew up (honest, I did grow up!). 
Well G.I. Joe is about to return to the big screen in Retaliation. Channing Tatum and Ray Park return as Duke Hauser and Snake Eyes, and this time around are joined by a rather impressive supporting cast, including Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Bruce Wills, Ray Stevenson, Adrianne Palicki and Jonathan Price. 

Check out the trailer and judge for yourself. Got to say, the ninja abseil/rock climbing scene looks pretty cool! And of course Bruce Willis…. need I say more? 

G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation is due for release in the UK on the 22nd June 2012 and in the US on the 29th June. No Australia release date is available yet.
