Photo Mania: Thor: The Dark World, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and More
With the start of October comes even more photos from upcoming releases. Some are for next year, including Transformers: Age of Extinction, Need for Speed, and I, Frankenstein, while the rest of the films, including Thor: The Dark World, Saving Mr. Banks, 12 Years a Slave, and Out of the Furnace, are upcoming this year. Stick around the full galleries.
Alan Taylor’s (HBO’s Game of Thrones) Thor: The Dark World is creeping up on us. With just over a month until its release, a batch of new photos came online. As you can tell by the pictures, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tom Hiddleston all return to the latest Marvel pic. It’ll release nationwide on November 8th. (Source: Collider)
Michael Bay took to his website to release a photo of his next installment in the Transformers franchise. This one, titled Transformers: Age of Extinction, will include Mark Wahlberg and Kelsey Grammer (NBC’s Frazier). It won’t release until June 27, 2014, so this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Four more photos for Disney’s Disney biographic film came online, too. Starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney, John Lee Hancock’s (The Blind Side) Saving Mr. Banks is going to be about Walt Disney Studios and the production of the 1964 film Mary Poppins. You can get a full look at the photos below before its release on December 13th. (Source: Collider)
Two more photos can be added to the other two for Need for Speed. The popular racing video game will likely morph into a film franchise. The good news: Aaron Paul (AMC’s Breaking Bad) serves at the main character. Releasing on March 14, 2014, Need for Speed will be directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor).
An Instagram photo for I, Frankenstein popped up, too. Besides the photo, I read a new trailer is on the horizon, so look out for that in theaters soon. I, Frankenstein stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) and Yvonne Strahovski (NBC’s Chuck). It’s being released by Lionsgate, and we can expect to see Stuart Beattie’s (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) action horror thriller about Frankenstein’s monster on January 24, 2014. (Source: Instagram)
In what is shaping up to be a huge awards contender, Steve McQueen’s (Shame) 12 Years a Slave continues to power forward. Its release date, on October 18th, is just around the corner. You can check out all four photos below, and you should know that Chiwetel Ejiofor (2012), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), and Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) are among the cast. Keep this movie on your radar. (Source: The Huffington Post)
To finish things off, I’ve attached the four photos I found for Out of the Furnace. Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) is directing Christian Bale, Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone), Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games), and Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) in the thriller. The photos don’t give a lot away about the movie, but it does look like dramatic. We’ll find out when it releases November 27th. (Source: IndieWire)
