With Zack Snyder’s “Man Of Steel” only a week away from release, anticiptation couldn’t be any higher. But if a “dreamy, blurry and sweepingly epic” trailer didnt sweep you away, or an action-packed, three minute long trailer featuring all the most important people in Superman’s life didn’t bring a shiver to your spine, then we’re not sure if there’s any hope for you. But just in case, here’s one last trailer. Starring Henry Cavill as Superman, one of DC’s most iconic superheroes, this final trailer has little dialogue but aRead More
All the important people in Superman’s life get to narrate a part of the new, 3-minute long trailer for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated reboot “Man of Steel”, and it’s finally looking like the summer blockbuster actioner it’s meant to be. It’s still got a bit of that dreamy Malick thing going on that was prevalent in the teaser trailers, but yes, we finally get to see Henry Cavill fight some bad guys! Michael Shannon makes his first appearance as the villainous Zod, and looks quite crazy and outrageous, while AmyRead More
Echoing the counter-intuitive nature of the first teaser trailers, new footage has debuted for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot “Man of Steel”, and it’s every bit as dreamy, blurry and sweepingly epic as its predecessor. In other words, still not at all what you would expect the next presumptive superhero blockbuster to look like. The plus side: it looks amazing. The minus: It’s hard to tell how representative footage like this is of the movie itself. Like the previous trailer, this one lingers for an extended period on Clark’s childhood andRead More
We can all thank Christopher Nolan and his billion dollar Batman trilogy for this, I think. Two new posters have debuted for two of 2013’s most anticipated summer blockbusters, and both paint a rather dark and bleak vision of their respective worlds. In JJ Abrams’ “Star Trek into Darkness”, the sequel to 2009’s critical and commercial hit reboot “Star Trek”, the entire crew of the Enterprise will return, including Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Uhuru, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin asRead More
A rather unexpected teaser trailer has debuted online for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Superman redo “Man of Steel.” Henry Cavill is gruffly bearded and apparently Clark Kent is working, not as an urban reporter at The Daily Planet, but with the crew of The Deadliest Catch on a fishing boat. The trailer is atmospheric, with dreamy, blurry images of rocks, birds, a gloomy seashore and a boy running through fields in a red cape and just one brief glimpse of that iconic image of Superman flying up, up and away.Read More
He’s conquered Metropolis and now Henry Cavill is setting his sights on one of the Seven Wonders of the World. After wrapping Zack Snyder’s new Superman adaptation “Man of Steel” for Legendary Pictures, Cavill will tackle the studio’s “The Great Wall”, according to Variety. Edward Zwick will direct from the screenplay he co-wrote with Marshall Herskovitz. There are no solid plot details, only that the film will delve into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the construction of the Great Wall of China. Of course, the construction having taken place almost 3,000Read More
Ryan Murphy has had huge success on the small screen, with TV hits from 90s show “Popular” to the current smash “Glee” so it’s no surprise to see him turn his talents to the big screen – and with the Tony award-winning play “The Normal Heart”. The largely biographical play by Larry Kramer centres on writer/activist Ned Weeks, and his attempts to raise HIV/AIDS awareness during the early 1980s in New York City. Mark Ruffalo signed on to play Weeks back in 2010, and now it looks like two ofRead More

Henry Cavill has added one more nemesis to his long list of evildoers to fight. Variety reports that relatively unknown German actress Antje Traue has been cast as the female villain in Zack Snyder’s reboot of the Superman franchise, “Man of Steel”. She has allegedly beat out the likes of Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and Alice Eve for the role that is most likely to be Faora, the sidekick to Kryptonian villain General Zod, to be portrayed by Michael Shannon in the new incarnation. Cavill, Shannon and Traue are joinedRead More
