Who is Superman? Is he Kal-El, the Last Son of Krypton? Or is he Clark Kent, the adopted child of Smallville farmers? Is it even a choice? Can’t he both? Superman has been dismissed as the “blue boy scout” by those who aren’t willing to take the time to consider his fascinating origin. He’s an immigrant from a destroyed planet, he’s the loneliest guy in the world, he’s an outsider, and he’s humanity’s shining beacon even though he’s not human. He’s the best of both worlds, and arguably belongs to neither. Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel tries to get to the heart of this conflict, but ends up missing the heart of Superman. Almost everything that surrounds the character is amazing from the set pieces to the restructured origin story to the score to the acting to his path before putting on the cape. But inside the iconic suit, there is no Superman.
With director Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel opening June 14th, Warner Bros. has provided us with 47 high-resolution images from the film. While many of these images have been previously released, there are a number of new images and they definitely look awesome. I especially like the one of Christopher Nolan on set with Zack Snyder. If you’re not aware, Nolan produced the film. Hit the jump to check them out.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fisburne, Antje Traue, and Russell Crowe.
Relativity Media announced today that director McG’s new action-thriller, tentatively titled Three Days to Kill, will hit theaters on February 14, 2014. Written by Luc Besson and Adi Hasak, the film stars Kevin Costner as an elite government hit man who, after receiving news that he has a terminal disease, decides to give up his high stakes life to build a relationship with his estranged wife and daughter. However, when his agency offers him an experimental, potentially life-saving drug in exchange for one last mission, Costner’s character finds himself juggling caring for his daughter while his wife is away and completing his mission at the same time, all the while experiencing hallucinatory side effects from the drug.
Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Connie Nielsen (Boss) star as Costner’s daughter and wife, respectively, and Amber Heard (The Rum Diary) plays the mysterious woman who offers Costner the drug. On the crowded 2014 Valentine’s Day weekend, Three Days to Kill will open opposite the romantic comedy remake About Last Night, the sci-fi thriller The Maze Runner, the fantasy YA adaptation Vampire Academy, and the romance remake Endless Love.
While we just recently saw a new trailer and a batch of new images from director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has now unveiled a large group of high-resolution images. We’ve seen a few of these before in lower-resolution iterations, but we also get new, clear looks at Supes’ parents (both birth and adopted), as well as a great photo of Christopher Meloni’s character.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fisburne, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. In it, General Zod (Michael Shannon) sets up the film’s central conflict and gives Earth 24 hours before unleashing hell. While previous trailers focused on the coming-of-age tale of a Kryptonian stranded on Earth and the love between a son and his father, this new cut is chock full of dread, evidenced by Superman drowning in a mountain of skulls. When the villains threaten to kill one million humans for every life he saves, you can’t help but feel as if the odds are fully stacked against the world’s most powerful superhero. This is certainly a fresh approach to the iconic hero and I hope that the film lives up to the trailers’ expectations.

Warner Bros. has unveiled three brand new behind-the-scenes featurettes and a new TV spot for director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel, highlighting some great new footage alongside interviews with members of the cast and crew. Each of the three featurettes focuses on one of the film’s themes, so we’ve got Speed focusing on Superman’s intensely quick movements, Strength focusing on the two different approaches to Supes’ abilities from his two fathers (Russell Crowe’s Jor-El and Kevin Costner’s Pa Kent), and finally the self-explanatory Flight. Along with new footage, we see Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, Crowe, Snyder, and producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven talking about the film.

“Can you imagine how people on this planet would react if they knew there was someone like this out there?”
After watching the latest Man of Steel TV spot, all I can do is agree with one of the comments posted on the official Facebook page where they said, “shut up and take my money.” While Warner Bros. has spent a substantial amount of money making Zack Snyder‘s Superman and they need to sell it to casual moviegoers, I’m at the point where I wish I could avoid the rest of their marketing plan and just see the finished product. However, I understand why we’re about to get slammed with new images, posters, clips and TV spots. The studio has to open this film and the only way to sell it is to show off the goods. And this new TV spot does just that. Watch it after the jump.

Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot and banner poster for director Zack Snyder’s Superman film Man of Steel. The 30-second spot does a nice job of teasing the grounded, character-centric nature of the pic while also highlighting the epic action that awaits audiences. All of the footage is backed by Hans Zimmer’s pulsing new Superman theme, and we also get to see some sort of massive-looking ship making ground on Earth. While the initial trailers were fairly small in scale, the most recent spots are doing a great job of teasing the grand set pieces that we’ll hopefully be seeing throughout the film.

A new TV spot has been released a new TV spot for Man of Steel. It has all the pomp and circumstance we’ve come to expect from the film’s marketing campaign, and when it comes to Superman, such presentation is required. It’s Superman, after all. The TV spot also shows off some of the action we previously saw in the excellent trailer, but the real takeaway is Superman screaming. What causes this scream? Does Pa Kent die (I don’t know if Pa Kent dies in the movie, but his death is a touchstone in the character’s biography)? Does Supes step on a kryptonite nail? Is he forced to watch Superman IV: The Quest for Peace?

The star and director of 2005′s The Upside of Anger will re-unite for Black and White, an on-the-nose title for a drama centering on racial issues. Written and directed by Mike Binder, Black and White is an indie that will star Kevin Costner as a man left widowed after his wife died in a car crash. He’s then left alone to raise his bi-racial granddaughter when his own daughter dies during childbirth. The plot thickens when the child’s paternal grandmother begins to wage a custody battle and raises questions about race and where the child should grow up. Deadline reports that the indie will start shooting in New Orleans this summer.

Summit Entertainment and OddLot Entertainment announced today that production has begun on director Ivan Reitman’s sports dramedy Draft Day. The film takes place within the span of one day, the day of the NFL Draft, as Kevin Costner plays a general manger who has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. As the day’s events unfold, “he must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.”
Filming is underway in New York, where the production will shoot some scenes at the actual 2013 NFL Draft. Once that is complete, filming will move to Cleveland. The ensemble includes Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary, Ellen Burstyn, Frank Langella, Josh Pence, Rosanna Arquette, Timothy Simons and 42 star Chadwick Boseman, and the start-of-production press release notes that Terry Crews and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs have also joined the cast. Hit the jump to read the full press release, which includes the entire cast listing.
Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for director Zack Snyder‘s Superman film Man of Steel. There’s a lot to pull apart here in this three-minute trailer, starting with the heroic shots of Russell Crowe who appears to have prescience about his son’s abilities once he gets to Earth. Then, we see Clark Kent passing through childhood, adolescence and adulthood, all while the expectations of his fathers are heaped upon his broad shoulders. It’s not all existential as we get the first real hint of action sequences in the film, along with scenes of the menacing Michael Shannon and the tenacious Amy Adams. And that theme? There’s quite a bit going on here so be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Last week, some intriguing new images from Man of Steel made their way online from the latest issue of EW. The magazine quickly asked us to remove the images from our site, but today they’ve been officially released for all to see. We get nice looks at Michael Shannon’s General Zod, Henry Cavill’s Supes, Amy Adams’ Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne’s Perry White, and more, including a new image of Antje Traue as the villainess Faora that wasn’t included in that initial batch.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images, and if you missed General Zod’s warning to Earth (ie. the first viral video for the film), click here. The pic also stars Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, and Diane Lane. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.
Yesterday, Superman (Henry Cavill) took to the cover of Entertainment Weekly, and now the publication has released seven lo-res images from the superhero’s reboot, Man of Steel. The article contains new plot details, but I’m trying to stay in the dark on this movie. Everything I’ve seen so far has pushed me towards doubt (it just looks too dour for Superman), and I want to give the movie a fair shake, so I’ll let the die-hards check out the story. However, I am willing to look at new images from the movie, and these look alright. Director Zack Snyder has apparently left his more stylized approach behind to make this Superman movie look relatively normal. Of course, we’ll have to see it in motion to really get a sense of what he’s going for.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Hopefully, Warner Bros. will release better-quality versions in the near future. The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th. [Update: EW has asked us to take the images down. Hopefully Warner Bros. released high-resolution versions soon.]
Some new promo images from director Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel have surfaced online. It’s tough to tell if the actors are in character or not in these new images, but if they are then this is our first look at Henry Cavill as plain ol’ Clark Kent. With the summer movie season looming closer, we should be seeing some more official images and posters for the film soon.
Hit the jump to take a look at the new images, which also feature Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.
UPDATE: Warner Bros. has asked us to remove the images.
