One of our most anticipated movies of 2011 is Zack Snyder’s sci-fi/fantasy girls-with-machine-guns caper “Sucker Punch”.

Although it doesn’t include much in the way of B-Roll footage (blink and you’ll miss a bit of Browning filming upside down in front of a green screen), thereRead More
“True Blood” breakout star Joe Manganiello responds to rumors that he will don Superman’s iconic red cape for director Zack Snyder’s reboot, denying that he is “in negotiations” but seeming to indicate that he is indeed a contender for the role. When reports surfaced from a sci-fi fan convention that Manganiello, who is blowing up thanks to his turn as a sexy werewolf on HBO’s vampire mega-hit “True Blood”, is in talks to play the Caped Crusader, he quickly took to Twitter to clarify: “Just to be clear… as ofRead More
