Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill as Superman.  Rather than focusing on the action, the trailer tries to sell us on what would happen if Superman really existed on our planet and would people really accept someone with God like powers.  Of course towards the end of the trailer, we get a good look at some of the big action set pieces and Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as the villain Zod.  But the fact is, every big budget Hollywood movie has action.  Without a strong story and characters you care about, the action means nothing.  Thankfully, everything I’ve seen thus far on the Man of Steel tells me Snyder has crafted a great Superman film that will deliver everything the fans want and more.  It’s easily one of my most anticipated films of 2013.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and then be prepared to start counting down the days to June 14.

Man of Steel also stars Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe star.  Man of Steel opens on June 14, 2013.

First Trailer, Teaser Poster and Synopsis for Jackie Robinson Biopic 42, Starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford

The first trailer for director Brian Helgeland’s Jackie Robinson biopic, 42, has gone online.  No sports-related trailer is complete without a walk down the tunnel from the locker room and this one is no different.  Where the trailer quickly distances itself is in the film’s fearless to take on race relations, a central part to Robinson’s rise to fame in the sports world.  Boseman takes on the role whole-heartedly and looks to be an absolute force in the film.  I’m usually not a fan of contemporary songs in period trailers (I’m looking at you, The Great Gatsby), but Jay-Z’s track nails it this time around.

42 stars Chadwick Boseman as Robinson, with Harrison Ford, Christopher Meloni, Jon Bernthal, Alan Tudyk and John C. McGinley, and opens April 12th, 2013.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

First Photos of Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler on THEY CAME TOGETHER Set [Updated]

They Came Together has pretty much everyone you’d want for a comedy cast: Amy PoehlerPaul Rudd, Ed Helms, Michael Ian Black, Jason Mantzoukas, Cobie Smulders, Christopher Meloni, and more.  Plus, the romantic comedy parody was scripted by Wet Hot American Summer co-writers David Wain and Michael Showalter (with Wain directing), so I think we’re in for a treat.  They Came Together follows the budding relationship between Joel (Rudd) and Molly (Poehler) that starts off rocky when “his big corporation is the one that threatens to shut down her quirky knick-knack store.”  The movie will satirize all the rom-com tropes, so of course Poehler will be stuck in a wedding dress at one point, as seen the first batch of set photos.  And of course Michael Shannon will wield a sword!

Warner Bros. has released two teaser trailers for director Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and they’re awesome.  While both have the same visuals and music, the Yahoo version has Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent) narration and the MSN has Russell Crowe (Jor-El).  Unlike most trailers that reveal everything, I love how this is a true teaser and it’s only towards the end that you realize you’re watching a trailer for a Superman movie.  Also, the way it uses music and visuals to set the mood is perfect.  As I’ve said many times, Man of Steel is easily my most anticipated movie of 2013 and everything I’ve seen and learned tells me it’s going to be something special.

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and CroweMan of Steel opens on June 14th, 2013.  Hit the jump to watch the teaser.

This summer’s superhero fare is off to a great start with the smashing success of The Avengers, and we’ve still got The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man to look forward to.  If you think that sounds like a crowded superhero year, remember that we almost also had Superman in the mix.  Man of Steel was moved from December 2012 to the summer of 2013, and though we really haven’t seen much from director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, we’re most likely getting our first look at the film at Comic-Con in July.

Someone claiming to be a visual effects supervisor has taken to the ever-accurate IMDb message boards to write up a description of two scenes from Man of Steel.  He claims to have seen the clips during a sizzle reel for Weta at a visual effects conference.  The description includes impressions of Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as General Zod, and Snyder’s signature visual flair.  Hit the jump to read on.

Update: The unnamed IMDb user who posted the original description has posted an update which adds credibility to his post.

Update 2: We’ve been asked by WB to take down the descriptions.

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share with you this afternoon. First up, Precious director Lee Daniels continues to fill out the impressive cast for his passion project The Butler. The film tells the true story of Eugene Allen, a butler who served at the White House from 1952 to 1986. Daniels is casting a slew of stars to take small roles as the famous men and women who come through the White House over the years, and Variety reports that Jane Fonda will be taking on Nancy Reagan. Forest Whitaker is set as Allen, with Oprah Winfrey in talks to play Allen’s wife and David Oyelowo up for the role of Allen’s son.

Liam Neeson and John Cusack are apparently circling roles as Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, respectively, and we also heard that Mila Kunis is eyeing the role of Jackie Kennedy. It’s an ambitious project, and one that’s sure to draw considerable awards buzz. I’m interested to see how Daniels pulls off the “revolving door” aspect without the cameos taking over control of the story. Daniels is directing from a script he co-wrote with Game Change writer Danny Strong. Hit the jump for casting news concerning the indie Small Time.
