Kevin Feige Suggests "Django Unchained" May Have Killed A '70s Black Panther movie
Today's premiere of the third trailer for "Iron Man 3" (which starts hitting theaters around the world next month) has given us our best glimpse so far at Marvel's Phase Two -- the run of solo movies, including "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy," that will bridge the gap between last year's mega-hit "The Avengers" and its 2015 sequel. But clearly, the comic-company-turned-studio have plans beyond that, and assuming the films continue to be successful, we'll continue to see other side projects like the upcoming "S.H.I.E.L.D" TV show, and others besides.

We’re betting that pretty much every A-lister out there has an early acting gig that they’d be happy never saw the light of day. Unluckily for Anne Hathaway and Jean Dujardin, the internet will always uncover those embarrassing early jobs sooner or later, and their time is now. Take a look at a couple of early ads that the now Oscar-winners made before they were famous.

First introduced in the 1970s by Garrett Brown, directors and filmmakers have used the steadicam to find increasingly inventive ways to approach an ordinary scene and take it to unprecedented places. Think of the still-talked-about and influential Copacabana entrance sequence in Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas," or Joe Wright's breathtaking, unblinking look at Dunkirk in "Atonement." These are just two more recent examples of decades of work in both the movies and television that have taken the steadicam and made it part of the everyday trade of storytelling.

The making of “Schindler’s List,” Steven Spielberg’s operatic examination of the Holocaust and the human spirit, was by many of the subsequent accounts of those involved as much an exercise in painful reflection for the cast and crew as it was one of film production. The anecdotal evidence of its emotional toll litters Hollywood lore. Actors broke down during takes; Spielberg’s wife and children accompanied him daily on set; the director watched "Seinfeld" to try and keep his spirits up, and the actor Robin Williams was on the phone every two weeks for comic relief. The director forewent a salary for the picture, regarding any profit as constituting “blood money.”

Stillness can be deceptive, and even among the hallowed and sacred grounds of an orthodox compound, that seemingly serene setting can have much more boiling beneath the surface. And in Cristian Mungiu's "Beyond The Hills" it's that unknowable factor that powers much of the drama in the film, which won awards for both its actresses at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

That “Resident Evil” is getting a sixth movie in its franchise should come as no surprise to anyone, given that the fifth one somehow managed to gross over $200 million worldwide, the second best tally in the series so far. The real question is which franchise will eventually stop making movies first? "Fast and Furious" or "Resident Evil"? There appears to be no end in sight for either.

Contemporary music has its fare share of massive group ensembles, whether it's the extended Wu-Tang family, the robe-wearing The Polyphonic Spree, the numerous branches of the Elephant 6 Collective, or the various members of the Broken Social Scene club. But we'd wager few could touch the sprawl of The Source Family.
