LASERLINKS 10-13-11

Hey kids, I’m posting LaserLinks a day early this week because I am leaving bright and early Friday morning to attend the New York Comic-Con! I hope to attend the Venture Brothers, Felicia Day, Mark Hamill, and The Amazing Spider-Man panels — so look for reports on those as well as a crap-ton of cool cosplay pics at some point on Saturday. Until then, here’s the week’s news, trailers, and miscellany from the past week:

Star Wars

The first trailer for the theatrical release of the 3D version of The Phantom Menace will be attached to prints of The Three Musketeers.

The Avengers

Superherohype has a breakdown of 72 screenshots from the recently-released trailer.

James Bond 23

Die Hard 5

This sequel has a title, a script, a director and a green-light.

The Dark Knight Rises

Here’s two set videos showing more of the Batwing and an insane chase scene involving Batman on the Batpod and what has to be every police officer in Gotham City.

The film is back on the Disney greenlight schedule with a smaller budget.

Superman: The Man of Steel

Here’s a bunch of set photos that show a bearded, homeless-looking Clark Kent, and our first look at Amy Adams as a red-headed Lois Lane.

The Dark Knight Rises

Will we finally see a fully-functional Batcave in this movie?

This is the first promo image from Snow White. (The Tarsem version, not the Kristen Stewart one). Click here for 12 more images.

Finally, Here’s the trailer for Sherlock Holmes 3 The Raven, with John Cusack as an ass-kicking, gun-totin’ Edgar Allen Poe.

‘THE AVENGERS’ TRAILER – COMING SOON

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, OUR LONG NATIONAL NIGHTMARE IS AT AN END! CALL OUT SICK FROM WORK OR SCHOOL, BARRICADE THE WINDOWS AND LOCK THE DOORS! THE AVENGERS TRAILER WILL BE ONLINE ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11TH.

End of line.

SEVEN NEW HI-RES ‘AVENGERS’ PHOTOS

Looks like it’s photo day here at LaserCola. First I threw up the new Muppets posters, and now I’ve got  seven shiny new stills from The Avengers for your viewing pleasure. There’s nothing terribly exciting or revelatory here, and to be quite honest, I’m sick to death of posting these photos day in and day out. We need a damn trailer for this flick so we can see Scarlett Johannson running from an explosion in slow-motion this great superhero team brought to life. The Avengers hits theaters on May 4, 2012.

‘THE AVENGERS’ ARE ON THE COVER OF EW THIS WEEK

Entertainment Weekly’s latest issue features a cover story on The Avengers, with new photographs of the superhero cast.  The story seems to be the usual EW puff piece –  reporting on things like the cast and crew hanging out together at a Motley Crue concert, and Joss Whedon frequenting some dance clubs:

Far from home on the Albuquerque set, they had little to do except hang out together, maybe hit a Motley Cruë concert, or go dancing with writer-director Joss Whedon, who says he knew “every dance club in Albuquerque.” Whedon was actually counting on a little bit of friction, since there’s so much in the actual story. “I was like, well, if they hate each other, I guess we can use that,” he shrugs. “But they don’t.”

Forget that rumored second villain stuff – Joss Whedon busting moves in a dance club? That’s the most unlikely thing I’ve heard about the Avengers production…

Also, here’s some pics of Jeremy Renner and ScarJo on set in full costume. (click on pic for full gallery)
