Photo Bomb!

Thanks for checking out the latest edition of Photo Bomb!, your weekly roundup of all movie-related photos floating around the internet.

We'll keep things rolling, because, just like last week, we have lots of new content to cover! So we'll get right to it. This week, we get a look at some new photos from the films "Iron Man 3", "Liz and Dick", "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", "The End of the World", "Resident Evil: Retribution", "Therese Raquin", "DREDD", "Magic Mike", and "Flight"

We make an easy transition to the Movie Posters portion, as we start with the first poster for "Flight", and also take a look at some others, including "360", "The Campaign", and "Looper".

And to top it off, we have a couple of new promo images for "Man of Steel" and "Fast and Furious 6".

So hit the jump and check it all out!

First, let's start it off with new content from the set of "Iron Man 3". Last week we brought you some images of the Iron Patriot armor that were awesome to see. This week, not quite as exciting, but at least they're not blurry this time! First is a shot of Stark (Downey, Jr.) looking on at his wall of suits. Also, we have a couple that show a building labeled A.I.M. I don't think that stands for AOL Instant Messenger, probably more likely that it's the headquarters for the fictional Marvel-created corporation obsessed with world domination and technological power. I'm not sure though, we'll have to wait for the movie... (iO9)




Next it's our first photos of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming biopic, "Liz and Dick". She looks the part to me. While I've never cared much for Lohan either way, I hope this film is a success for her and she stops being an idiot and makes a comeback. By the way, Nathan hoped for the same thing a while back.. The first photo is from (The Hollywood Reporter), and the other is so elegantly and subtly from (TMZ)



Here are two photos of Emma Watson as a burlesque dancer in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". We also saw Watson in photos for Sofia Coppola's film last week. Look like she's doing a pretty good job in her post-Potter career so far! (The Telegraph)



How about a few early photos from the Seth Rogen-directed comedy, "The End of the World". What I'm loving about this movie is that the film stars all of these actors as fictionalized versions of themselves. The story is about this group of celebrities that have to deal with an impending apocalypse while attending a party at James Franco's house. Along with Franco, the film will also star - are you ready for this lineup? - Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Michael Cera, Jay Baruchel, our girl again, Emma Watson, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, Martin Starr, Craig Robinson, and Rihanna. It's a Who's Who of modern comedy! Just from the pictures, I think this one will be a lot of fun. (CinemaBlend)




Next we'll hit a couple of new ones from the latest installment of the Resident Evil series, "Resident Evil: Retribution". The film returns Mila Jovovich for the title role, as we up the stakes even more this time around. Look for a September 14, 2012 release. (ComingSoon)



It may not be Emma Watson, but we have another Harry Potter alum, as Tom Felton shares the screen with Elizabeth Olson for the film "Therese Raquin". The two are lovers who murder Olson's husband but are then haunted by his ghost. Looks interesting at least. (Just Jared)








We'll next jump to a new one from the film "DREDD". We got our first look at this movie about a month back, and so far it seems like it should work pretty well. Keith Urban as Judge Dredd is a solid choice I think. We only have one photo this time, but it's a great, clear shot of his character. (The Playlist)


I guess everything always comes full circle. Just last week the guys got to check out a series of young, attractive women prancing around in bikinis for the film "Spring Breakers". This week, it's the ladies turn, as they get a healthy dose of Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and others showing off their abs and other muscles. "Magic Mike" is the semi-true story based around Tatum's actual life that follows his rise to fame. There's plenty more photos on the site (53 to be exact), but this is good enough for now. You get the point. (Collider)
















Here's our first image of Denzel Washington in Robert Zemeckis' latest film, "Flight". This is Zemeckis' first live-action film since "Cast Away" in 2000. Along with Washington, the film, about a pilot who saves a plane from crashing, also stars John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, and Melissa Leo. This one hits theaters November 2, 2012. (Apple)


We'll follow that up and transition right into our Movie Posters segment with also the first poster released for "Flight". Not much here, but nonetheless, this is the film's first poster. (Again from Apple)


This poster is for the film "360". It stars Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Rachel Weisz, and Ben Foster, as four different characters that comes from very different backgrounds but all get involved with each other. This one premiered at the London Film Festival last year to generally positive reviews. It hits theaters in America July 25, 2012. The trailer for the film is also available at the the link to the right. (Apple)


We actually get two different posters here for the Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis comedy, "The Campaign". We saw the first trailer for the film here; I'm not sold on this one yet. We'll get to take a full look August 10, 2012. (Facebook)



Our last poster is for for the Rian Johnson film, "Looper". This looks like a pretty good sci-fi thriller, and features a great cast too. Here's the trailer for the film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, and Emily Blunt. This releases September 28, 2012. (IGN)


The next two shots fall somewhere in the middle of all of this, but it's cool to start seeing more advertising for both of these. I'm definitely more interested for "Man of Steel", but the Fast and Furious series continues to churn out solid, entertaining films, so I have plenty of interest for that one as well. Anyway, these two banners were just released the other day. Neither film will release until 2013, but these will both surely be films to dominate the box office come time. (Collider)



And we have a couple of interesting little tidbits to round-out the post this week. First, this really cool poster that Paramount gave to a select number of employees in celebration of their 100-year anniversary. I think this is awesome, and a lot of fun to look at. I've wanted to take the time to really go through these, but I keep finding better things to do than stare at a poster of abstract images for two hours. I did notice that there's a lot from 2011 though. Which films are those? Again, I haven't spent too much time on it, but is that year the most represented? I'd love someone to provide a full breakdown for these. (First Showing)


And just because they're neat, below are two new sets of stamps that the United States Postal Service recently unveiled. I'm no stamp collector or anything, but I might go buy a sheet of each just for memorabilia-sake. They seem interesting enough to drop the, what, three bucks for a set? I like the ones featuring the directors much more than the Pixar ones, but they're both cool. 











So that's what all we're looking at this week. What do you guys think? What are your favorite images above?
