Check out this comical, quaint, ’70s-riffic, The Avengers 1978 movie promo’. The Avengers together for the first time in this 1978 made for TV movie.. They face off with their greatest foe yet… KISS, under the power of Loki, played by Paul Lynde:

More G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation. Call me crazy but I don’t think this sequel will disappoint, especially with how low expectations are after the awful installment. This one looks pretty kick-ass, thankfully. Do yourself a favor and watch these teasers…

A newly released high-resolution snap from The Amazing Spider-Man:

Cosmopolis – Official Trailer, riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager’s day devolves into a odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart:

Dinotasia – Official Trailer, dinosaurs and Werner Herzog! One of our favourite natural history subjects, the good old dinosaur, gets a makeover and then some in this fantastically ambitious and groundbreaking animation. Based on cutting-edge palaeontology and the latest fossil records, DINOTASIA presents a series of vignettes about dinosaurs — both familiar faces and some we have only found out about in the past ten years. The film uses CGI to bring the stories to life, but draws on the medium’s birth in silent film and early Disney to create proper, traditional visual story-telling. Werner Herzog narrates, reuniting with the team behind GRIZZLY MAN and CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS:

Lawless – Official Trailer, directed by John Hillcoat and starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan. The true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. In this epic gangster tale, inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County in the World”, the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave:

Mansome Trailer, from America’s greatest beardsman, to Morgan Spurlock’s own mustache, Executive Producers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman bring us a hilarious look at men’s identity in the 21st century. Models, actors, experts and comedians weigh in on what it is to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg. The hilarious follicles of men’s idiosyncratic grooming habits are thoroughly combed over as men finally take a long hard look in the mirror:

Breaking Bad Season 4 Gets Even Darker With New Black & White Pics, last month, gave fans an alternate look at Breaking Bad Season 4 with some really striking black-and-white photos from unit photographer Ursula Coyote. Now, check out eleven additional B&W shots (gallery at end of post) of everything from Gale’s crime scene to the torching of the superlab:

There we go…
