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.
Hit the jump to watch the new TV spot and to see the new banner. The film 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.
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?

While The Avengers 2 is still very much in the pre-production stage and we haven’t heard much movement recently on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, everyone will have their Joss Whedon fix very soon. The UK trailer for his new movie, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, was just released, showing a bit more of the film than the first trailer. Much Ado tells the story of two stubborn individuals, Beatrice and Benedick, and their haphazard journey to finding love with each other that involves a ridiculous amount of deception and wit. This one gives glimpses into the interwoven drama with jabs of comedy Whedon is more known for, and I for one am very excited to see him take on an updated but understated version of this classic. I like that he’s kept the original text, but is playing with the tone and creating a new feel for it.
The cast includes many of Whedon’s mainstays, such as Amy Adams, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg, Sean Maher, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Tom Lenk, Reed Diamond, and Ashley Johnson. I love seeing Whedon bring back his beloved roster of actors, and I have no doubt that the combination of the cast he’s chosen and his distinctive style of filmmaking and directing will provide something fun and entertaining. The film is set for a June 7th release. Hit the jump for the trailer.
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!

Director David O. Russell’s follow-up to last year’s crowdpleasing awards contender Silver Linings Playbook now has a title. Previously referred to as American Bullshit, the pic is now titled American Hustle per Box Office Mojo. The story is based on a real-life undercover sting operation called “Abscam”, which was set up in the 1980s by a con artist working for the FBI who rooted out corruption in Congress. The film boasts an incredible ensemble cast that includes a number of Russell regulars like Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert De Niro as well as some exciting Russell newcomers like Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., Michael Pena, and Jack Huston.
Russell is currently in the middle of production on American Hustle in the New York City area, and we’ve already seen a number of wildly entertaining set photos of the cast done up in their 80s garb. The film opens in limited release on December 13th before going wide on Christmas Day, and it’s safe to assume that American Hustle will be a serious player in this year’s awards race.
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.]

Director Tim Burton’s long-developing biopic Big Eyes is finally moving forward. The filmmaker first became attached to the pic back in 2010, when he sparked to a script by Ed Wood scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski that he intended to produce. The film’s story focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret and Walter Keane. Walter became famous in the 1950s and 60s for paintings featuring saucer-eyed kids, though it was the shy Margaret who really did the work. Margaret eventually tired of the misplaced credit, which led to a divorce and a heated court battle to prove authorship of the paintings.
Ryan Reynolds and Reese Witherspoon became attached to play the couple early last year, but now a different promising duo of actors will be bringing The Keanes to life on the big screen with Burton in the director’s chair, as Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams have signed on to topline the pic.

With the 85th Academy Awards looming closer, we here at Collider thought now would be a good time to take a look back at Oscar race thus far. It’s been a wild and somewhat nutty 12 months, as we’ve seen numerous contenders rise and fall (and some rise back up again) in the contentious hunt for Oscar gold. We’ve already run down the ebbs and flows of the Best Supporting Actor category, and today we’ll be taking a look back and how the race played out for Best Supporting Actress.
It’s been about ten months since the last episode of Funny or Die series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, but I guess to make up for the delay, they’re breaking out all the stars. In the first of a two-part “Oscar Edition”, the show’s guests include Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Naomi Watts (The Impossible), Christ of Waltz (Django Unchained), Anne Halfway (French Movie), and Amys Adams (The Master). Watching these brief interviews, I wish they were expanded out into full segments, but I’ll take as much of Between Two Ferns as I can get.
