"Nature Has An Order" is the name for the latest TV Spot for "Godzilla" (which I appreciate when they name them instead of numbering them ;p).

Theme Song for "Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary" from Yoshiki

Toei Animation teams up with Japanese Pop Star Yoshiki (leader of the band X Japan), to pen and perform the film’s worldwide theme song to "Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary" animated movie, ahead of the film’s June 21 release in Japan. Check out the video above which also features scenes from the film.
"I feel greatly honored to write the theme song for SAINT SEIYA. I truly believe I have created a touching song with a beautiful melody using a hero as the motif. I very happily accepted this offer since I of course knew SAINT SEIYA and I am a great fan of anime. I saw the manga a long time ago. Before writing the song I had the chance to see the new movie, which feels like it was created at a magnificent scale. I actually faced a big struggle with matching my music with the movie. The result is a sort of ballad, rather than a loud piece. I think the song suits the magnificent scale sensitivity of SAINT SEIYA." -says Yoshiki.
(Cheers for the headsup David).

"Godzilla" director Gareth Edwards goes in front of the camera in a series of interviews for "Meet the Director", of which a quartet of videos have been uploaded so far on WarnerBrosUK. Nice break in Godzilla film-imagery, of which they are scant snippets on these videos, but nothing we've not seen before :p

Hot Toys' 1/6 Spider-Man Collectible Figure from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"

In anticipation to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 film premiering soon, Hot Toys introduces the new 1/6th scale Spider-Man Collectible Figure, and amidst the studio product images is one where Spidey is wearing civilian-wear over his spandex = pointing to perhaps a plot/story-point? I'm eager to find out! Haha

Check out more product pics posted below, and as well two snaps of the film's director Marc Webb, along with the Producers, Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, clutching the 1/6th-scaled figure (taken while they were in Tokyo, Japan for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 press conference)!

PARTIAL PRESS: "The movie-accurate Spider-Man collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Spider-Man in the film. It features a newly developed Spider-Man suit, highly detailed accessories, and figure stand with flexible pillar for dynamic posing. A special edition that is available for selected markets will include an additional 1/6th scale plutonium canister and a specially designed Spider-Man artwork cover for dynamic figure stand."

Official Behind The Scenes for "Guardians Of The Galaxy" + Crossover Comics of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe

I love it that folks across the www is calling this a "Sneak Peek" when instead it's "just" a behind-the-scenes featurette featuring artists soundbites. and movie images seen before in trailers and clips (even Yahoo! named it "Behind The Scenes" haha ;p).

Quips aside, what MARVEL movies remind me of these days: "Crossover Comics".

Remember when there'll be a "crossover event" across the comicbook Universe and there'll be multiple titles involved in the proceedings and shenanigans? It's still happening now in print, and with the advent and introductions of end-credit scenes (which of course Marvel goes One-Up before anyone else with 2 end-credit scenes in their recent films lol), the MARVEL Cinematic Universe has since caught up!

Linking each individual movie(s) to the next, is indeed a whole hecka fun, provided you don't miss any MARVEL movie, of course!

When I first saw a glimpse of Benicio Del Toro as "Taneleer Tivan / The Collector" in the GoTG trailer, I was esthetic (sorta), like I "discovered" who he was! And it was not until much later, when I came across the end credit scene for "Thor 2", did I find out he had already been seen by the public (which is obvious by now I did not catch "Thor 2" in the cinemas), but just not be myself!

Sorta like when you miss a particular issue of a "comicbook Crossover Event" you do not normally read/collect, and discovered the "current" comicbook you are reading, refers to THAT incident you missed? LOL

Be that as it may, it still evokes "fun", and as a comicbook-geek (once and always will be), I appreciate notions like this taking root in mass conciousness LOL … Now I am just waiting for someone out there to do a video montage of ALL end credit sequences from MARVEL into a single continuous fillet … I would do it, but I suck at editing LOL

*SPOILER: Do Not Press Play If Not Watched 'Thor 2'*

3rd Official Trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

The 3rd official trailer for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" spells out what to expect for the live-action feature film, with the storyline adapted from the graphic novel storyline of the same name. No worries if you missed reading it tho, this trailer will get you on track ~ heh. (The self-wallowing Xavier is a hoot lol)

As well I really appreciate the new(ly) seen images/sequences, and not just a wholesale rehash of earlier trailers, IMHO. Check out more screengrabs posted HERE on XMENonFILM :)
