Photo Mania: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ender’s Game, and More
Halfway through the week means one thing here at Film Equals: Photo Mania! In this week’s edition, I’ll have the latest photos for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ender’s Game, Fast & Furious 7, The LEGO Movie, Big Game, 47 Ronin, and Nebraska. With the final two (47 Ronin and Nebraska), treat yourself to the full gallery below each summary.
You can call this Captain America week because Captain America: The Winter Soldier three-peated with two new photos to add to the first trailer and another poster. Returning Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, and Hayley Atwell, the picture will be directed by the Russo Brothers (You, Me, and Dupree) and release April 4, 2014. (Source: USA Today)
Two days ahead of the Ender’s Game release, three more photos surfaced online. For those that are familiar with the book (by Orson Scott Card), you can get a good look at Bonzo (Moises Arias) squaring up against Ender (Asa Butterfield). The movie also stars Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley. It’s directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and due to release already November 1st. (Source: Cinema Blend)
Fast & Furious 7 has yet to release any real official photos, but thankfully they have quite the social media following. Stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have been supplying plenty of photos. The latest picture shows off Jason Statham (a newcomer to the franchise), Diesel, and a glass of red wine. I won’t get into Statham’s character just in case you haven’t seen this year’s Furious movie. The 7th installment will be directed by James Wan (The Conjuring) with a release date set for July 11, 2014. (Source: Moviefone)
Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s (21 Jump Street) passion project The LEGO Movie, released two new photos as well. Voice starring everybody under the sun (Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, and Channing Tatum), the stop-motion animated comedy will release February 7th. It reminds me a bit of Wreck-It Ralph, and I’m hoping the movie is just as critically and nostalgically successful. (Source: USA Today)
Jalmari Helander’s Big Game becomes the second movie to feature Samuel L. Jackson. The first photo for Big Game shows him post-crash. What you may not gather from the photo is that he’s playing the U.S. President. The movie is set to release sometime in 2014 with Ray Stevenson (Thor) set to co-star. Check out the first look above.

Even more photos landed online for the long-awaited 47 Ronin. It stars Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) as a man out for revenge. The movie is directed by the relatively unknown Carl Erik Rinsch. A gallery of six photos can be seen below before it releases in theaters December 25th. (Source: Yahoo)
Nebraska, the next film from Alexander Payne (The Descendants), released a ton of photos. Payne is a very underrated filmmaker for people that aren’t huge cinephiles. However, I can vouch for his stuff and am particularly excited for Nebraska, which is set to release November 15th. It stars Bruce Dern (Coming Home) and Will Forte (NBC’s Saturday Night Live) who can be seen (among others) in the full 40 photos below. (Source: Collider)
