Another post-apocalyptic class warfare movie (because the last one was so good)? Well, at least Elysium was written and directed by Neill Blomkamp and stars Matt Damon as the man destined to “bring equality to the polarized worlds.” Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, and former Bond Girl Talisa Soto also star. Elysium opens in theaters on August 9th.
A group of actors all playing themselves stuck together at a party thrown by James Franco during the end of the world sounds like a fun idea for a Saturday Night Live sketch. I’m just not so sure it can hold up for a full two-hours. However, I do have to admit that the idea of watching Emma Watson beat the shit out of Seth Rogen (who also co-wrote and co-directed the film) does have some appeal. Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Martin Starr, Michael Cera, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, David Krumholtz, and Rihanna also star. This is the End opens in theaters on June 12th.

Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort, Alex Russell, Portia Doubleday, Michelle Nolden, and Cynthia Preston also star. The new version of Carrie opens in theaters on October 13th.

A new full-length trailer for Iron Man 3 has arrived featuring Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) trying to protect the woman he loves (Gwyneth Paltrow) and the planet from a terrorist known as the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley). A couple of points: 1) I’m pretty mixed on the look of the Iron Patriot on screen, 2) The Mandarin without his magic rings sounds pretty unimpressive, and 3) Why does Iron Man’s armor look worse instead of better in each successive film? Who designed this look, DC’s New 52? Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, William Sadler, and James Badge Dale also star. Iron Man 3 opens in theaters on May 3rd.
