    The Ladies Of 'Sucker Punch' On Its Girl Power & Other Revelations Of The Fantasy Action Behemoth

    Jena Malone Surprised WB Greenlit The Risky Film, Oscar Isaac Gives Details On Working With 'Mad Genius" Nichols Winding RefnZach Snyder's long gestating, high-concept, ladies-led fantasy project "Sucker Punch" -- one not based on any kind of pre-existing franchise or comic book, but very genre-blending -- has been reported on, speculated about and anticipated for ages, so now that it's finally arriving in theaters this weekend, we'll be curious to see if that interest translates at the box office.

    Actress Jokes She Would Play 'Superman's Dad If Snyder Asked Her, Also Gives Details On Her Disturbing Next Project 'Sleeping Beauty'EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" is, if anything, a film like few we've seen before: a female-led fantasy action series where a bunch of girls kick some serious ass in a series of highly stylized fantasy worlds in an effort to escape their reality at an oppressive mental asylum. Baby Doll, the newest patient, leads the pack of young runaways and orphans as they fight off zombie soldiers, dragons and machine-gun wielding robots in an attempt to find the five keys to their freedom. We had the chan...

    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...
