    Filmmaker Says He Can't Believe There Are 'Thor' & 'Iron Man' Films, But No 'Superman' Movie Among This Current CrazeFrom remakes of classic zombie films to CGI-led, testosterone-y swords and sandal pictures, to dark superhero deconstructions and animated adventure movies starring talking owls, film...

    Viggo Mortensen Won't Play General Zod In 'Superman: Man of Steel'

    Zack Snyder Says That Film Is His 'Most Realistic' Movie, Temporarily Forgetting Gritty Documentary-Style Realism Of 'Legends of the Guardians: The Owls Of Ga'Hoole' While the world and their wife are currently debating the role that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing in "The Dark Knight Rises" (we don't want to add to the fuss, but we met someone down at the pub last night who swore up and down that he'll be King Tut), Zack Snyder is quietly assembling his cast for the other big DC Comics movie of 2012, "Superman: Man of Steel." British actor Henry Cavill landed the title role at the start of the year, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner have...

    Amanda Seyfried Auditioned For A Role In 'Superman' But Didn't Get The Job

    Lost Out On Lead Role In 'Sucker Punch' Due To Clash With 'Big Love' ScheduleThink back to the heady days of 2004, when you first saw Tina Fey's minor classic of the teen movie genre, "Mean Girls." You, like the rest of us, probably thought that the biggest star to graduate from that film would be its lead, Lindsay Lohan, who gave an endearing, goofy performance that suggested a long career was ahead of her. Instead, a whole bunch of drugs intervened, and Lohan is basically now unemployable, leaving her co-stars to lap her in the stardom stakes. Well, not Lacey Chabert so much, but both Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried have become some of t...

    Zack Snyder Says His 'Superman' Won't Look Back At The Previous Films

    You gotta kind of be feeling for Zack Snyder right about now. His brainchild, fantasy action pic "Sucker Punch" is just over a week away from hitting theaters and the advance buzz is muted at best and of course, he's got the huge responsibility and weight of fanboy expectation on his back for the up...

    Book Review: 'Sucker Punch: The Art of the Film' Fails To Excite

    For months now we've been bombarded with trailers for Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch." These trailers have been elliptical, at least from a story point of view. Visually, they've been somewhat staggering – quick fire clips of attractive young girls in costumes that border on high-end fetish gear, battl...

    Viggo Mortensen Being Courted To Play General Zod In Zack Snyder's 'Superman'

    Kevin Costner Confirmed To Be Up For Jonathan KentIt's not so long since we speculated on the choice of villain in the upcoming Zack Snyder-helmed, Christopher Nolan-produced reboot of "Superman"; with Henry Cavill being picked to play the man of steel, it seemed like the next logical step for his adversary to appear, but, despite a number of names cropping up in rumors, it was never entirely clear which villain from the character's 80-year history would be facing off against Clark Kent's alter ego. But, breaking last thing on Friday night, we seem to have an idea of not only who the antagonist will be, but also the actor that seems to be lea...

    Retro International 'Sucker Punch' Posters Premiere And Look Familiar

    While the jury will still be out for a few more weeks on whether “Sucker Punch” is actually any good (or at least until it possibly screens secretly at SXSW), Warner Bros. continues to push forward with the film’s marketing. A few days ago they released a second trailer for the film, which resembles more of a music video and somehow gives you even less information about what the film is actually about. Luckily we can provide a synopsis. Basically, the film centers on a girl who enters an alternate reality with her friends and begins planning an escape from a mental institution where she was put by her evil stepfather who intends to have her l...
