We‘ve just come across  a few new images from various upcoming TV shows and movies and we thought we’d share them with you in one big Christmassy bundle.

Because we’re nice like that.

First up, Warner Bros have officially released the first still from Guy Ritchie’s version of the 1960s spy TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Jared Harris all star in the 1960s-set Cold War thriller in which Cavill’s CIA agent Napoleon Solo teams up with Hammer’s KGB agent Illya Kuryakin to stop a mysterious criminal organization. The film opens in August.


Next up,  HBO has released the first image from their TV update of Michael Crichton’s 1973 classic 1973 movie Westworld which told the story of a park in which people can live out their fantasies with life-like robots until one goes mad and starts getting revenge.

Creator of the series Jonathan Nolan told EW that “It’s a place where you can be whoever you want, and there are no consequences – no rules, no limitations. What happens in Westworld, stays in Westworld. What we can tell you is that we intend to make the most ambitious, subversive, f—ed up television series. The things that keep you up at night, any of those things that trouble you, that is exactly what the show is about.”

The pis features Ingrid Bolso Berdal who stars alongside Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and Rodrigo Santoro. How’s that for a cast?


Finally, with everyone waiting to see how Agent Carter will turn out next month, Marvel have released a load of images from the first episode which we’ve put the image album below for your viewing pleasure…

And finally, here’s some pics from the first episode in the second half of Gotham’s first season – Episode So1E11 Rogue’s Gallery:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
