CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
As we reported yesterday, the first official photos of Chris Evans as the title character will appear in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. The cover, eerily similar to their “Green Lantern” cover, also shows off this round shield:
A few more photos have also appeared, and I just have to say this one is the bee’s knees:
Starring Chris Evans, release date: July 22nd, 2011

SIN CITY 2

GHOST RIDER 2: SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE
Directors Neveldine and Taylor posted this to their Twitter account: “The dual role of blaze/zarathos will be a nic cage classic.” The post started a flurry of speculation, but Collider got Taylor to clarify the statement. “Zarathos is the spirit of vengeance that inhabits john blaze when he becomes ghost rider.Â unlike the 1st movie, where the rider was stiffly acted out by a various stunt guys, nic will be playing all the ghost rider stuff himself – and we are creating a whole physical language for the demon that is different from the human blaze,” said the co-director. I guess Cage will both be doing his own stunts and setting his own head on fire.
Release date: February 17th, 2012
A couple of sites posted information about the sequel and some of the characters set to appear. That information was removed at the request of the studio, but it’s still out on the Internet if you know where to look. Granted, you could just read a certain — well talked about — Wolverine story for a good guess at who might be in the movie.
Release date: 2012?
THE WALKING DEAD
Our plas over at Spinoff Online have their own review of the pilot. “‘The Walking Dead’ is one of those rare comic book adaptations that just completely gets it,” says Spinoff’s Josh Wigler. Meanwhile, Producers Gale Anne Hurd and Frank Darabont tell MTV News about their favorite zombie moments in the show:
Kryptonsite has a few more preview images from November 12th’s “Abandoned,” including this photo of dear old Granny:
Cue up John Carpenter’s “Halloween” score and get me a rum drink, it’s Halloween weekend. With that, comes our final movie recommendation for the week. It is, of course, John Carpenter’s “The Thing.” With the prequel coming early next year, refresh your memory of one of the most well crafted, gross, and scary movies ever devised for a Hollywood Studio.

Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning.
