Universal and Legendary Pictures have released a new Seventh Son trailer and poster along with some new images.  The plot follows mystical knight Father Gregory (Jeff Bridges) and his apprentice Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) and their fight to defeat the evil witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) and her followers.  If you feel like you’ve been vaguely hearing about this movie off and on the past several years, it’s because you have.  Seventh Son was originally scheduled to open on February 15th…2013.  After being pushed back three times, the movie is now (probably) going to finally come out.  That’s a big build up for a movie where the Dude and Prince Caspian fight monsters, but we’ll see if it was worth the wait.

MAN OF STEEL Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 364 days ago

man-of-steel-blu-ray-review-slice

One of the biggest movies of the year, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, is now available to take home on Blu-ray.  If you only saw the picture once, or even twice in the theaters, there’s likely quite a bit you missed.  Luckily, the Blu-ray is packed full of behind-the-scenes featurettes and a multimedia commentary track that delves into every facet of the filmmaking process.  And for those of you who want to minor in Kryptonian studies, the special features also explore the newly created language and alphabet, technology, and all-around culture of the inhabitants of Krypton, plus an in-depth look at the alien world itself.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Antje Traue and Russell CroweMan of Steel is an enjoyable, yet absolutely detailed and expansive entry in the pantheon of Superman films.  The quality of the film alone is worth picking it up on Blu-ray, but the special features put the icing on the cake.

Comic-Con: SEVENTH SON Panel Recap; Jeff Bridges Says the Fantasy Film is “Chock Full of Myth”

The reaction to the Seventh Son trailer was lukewarm at best, but it’s a big fantasy movie we haven’t seen in a while, and I want to remain positive on it.  I’m a huge fan of star Jeff Bridges and antagonist Julianne Moore.  Still, it’s going to be a tough sell, and everyone’s itching for a big show when you’re the lead-off panel on the biggest day of Hall H.  They didn’t have a lot of time in the crowded Warner Bros./Legendary presentation, but the crowd responded well, and they made a case not to simply write this off as another January write-off like this year’s Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

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.

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.

Final Trailer for MAN OF STEEL Features General Zod’s Ultimatum and a Mountain of Skulls

by     Posted 1 year, 182 days ago

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.

Superman Super Screams in New TV Spot for MAN OF STEEL

man-of-steel-superman-scream-slice

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?

New Trailer for Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL

man-of-steel-slice

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.

7 New Images from MAN OF STEEL Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, and Michael Shannon [Updated]

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 CroweMan 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.]

New Trailer for Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL Starring Henry Cavill

by     Posted 1 year, 342 days ago

superman-man-of-steel-movie-image-henry-cavill-slice-01

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.

2 Teaser Trailers for Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL!

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.

Shannon Woodward to Play Punk in ADULT WORLD; SUPERMAN Star Antje Traue Joins THE SEVENTH SON

by     Posted 2 years, 271 days ago

Shannon Woodward has signed on to join Emma Roberts, John Cusack, and Evan Peters in Adult World.  The script by Andrew Cochran is pitched as an  examination of “the contemporary state of post-graduate life in America.”  (Blech.)  Roberts plays a recent graduate and aspiring poet who works at the erotic bookstore Adult World.  According to Deadline, Woodward will play a “punk/goth anarchist sporting a nose ring and a Ramones shirt” who becomes roomates with Roberts’ character after they bond over their rebellion.  Woodward is my favorite thing on Raising Hope, and any girl becomes 10% more fetching in a Ramones shirt.  So Adult World just broke even for me after starting off in the hole with that “state of post-graduate life” logline that tastes of copper.  Director Scott Coffey (Ellie Parker) is currently shooting the project in upstate New York.
