Photo Mania: Maleficent, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and More
Welcome to Hump Day everyone! In this week’s exciting Photo Mania I’ll attach the latest photos for upcoming movies like Maleficent, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Tammy, Neighbors, and Macbeth. In anticipation for Cannes next month I’ve also included photos for Lost River and Maps to the Stars.
Ten photos came online for Disney’s Maleficent. Considered by some as the next billion dollar Disney franchise (after last year’s Frozen), this one will star Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning (Super 8). Both, along with some fairies, dragons, and more, are featured in the photos (in a full gallery) below. Robert Stromberg’s directorial debut comes out on May 30th. (Source: Comingsoon)
One less (non-math people: 9) photo released for How to Train Your Dragon 2 as well. Dean DeBlois’ follow-up returns the voices of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, and more when it releases on June 13th. If this isn’t enough, make sure to come back on Friday for the latest clip. (Source: ScreenRant)
I also wanted to pass along the first two photos I’ve seen for the comedy Tammy. Ben Falcone (who stars in Bridesmaids) makes his directorial debut with his wife Melissa McCarthy starring as well as Susan Sarandon and Dan Aykroyd. This one comes out on July 2nd. Expect a trailer for this comedy soon! (Source: Collider)
Nicholas Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) next comedy, Neighbors, also has a new gallery to present. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne (speaking of Bridesmaids), and Zac Efron are among the stars in this anticipated movie. Check out the ten photos in the gallery below before it releases on May 9th.

To get your Shakespeare fix (or perhaps your Michael Fassbender fix), I’ve attached the first two photos for the next Macbeth adaptation. This one appears to be the only 2015 release (although a specific date isn’t known yet) on this week’s slate. The movie is directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and will also star Marion Cotillard (Inception). (Source: IndieWire)
The first two photos also debuted for Lost River. What is Lost River you ask? Well that’d be Ryan Gosling’s anticipated directorial debut. The fantasy-noir will star Gosling himself along with Christina Hendricks (AMC’s Mad Men) and Saoirse Ronan (Hanna). The film will play Cannes this year while it awaits a later 2014 theatrical date.

Finally, I wanted to pass along the four newest photos for David Cronenberg’s (Cosmopolis) satire Maps to the Stars. Names like Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, and Julianne Moore (Don Jon) are involved in the project. Expect some social commentary (or some Hollywood-bashing) in this film when it comes out later this year (again, no specific date announced yet). If you make your way to Cannes, check this one out, too! (Source: IndieWire)
