Man of Steel box office to reach $150 million in North America today (photo: Dylan Sprayberry as the young Clark Kent in Man of Steel) Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill in the title role, Man of Steel will undoubtedly pass the $150 million milestone at the North American box office on Tuesday, June 19, 2013. Partly boosted by 3D surcharges, after about four and a quarter days (including $12 million from Thursday evening screenings), Warner Bros.’ $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel has taken in $141.26 million from 4,207 Us/Canada locations, including $12.58 million on Monday as per Box Office Mojo. For comparison’s sake: From Friday-Monday, without the advantage of box-office-inflating 3D surcharges, Jon Favreau / Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man earned $105.55 million, or about $117 million today. So, if the 3D surcharges* are deducted from Man of Steel‘s Friday-to-Monday total, the 2013 Superman reboot would be left with $116.34 million. In other words, the $140 million-budgeted Iron Man »

"It turned out great, it will not disappoint you. Whoo, it's powerful, it's great, It's not a joyful movie, but it's a very intense movie." Ok, so Woody Harrelson has already seen "Out Of The Furnace," and now we're doubly stoked for it. So wait, for those that may not know, what is it exactly?

Composer Dickon Hinchliffe ("Winter's Bone") is leading the score and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder is writing an original tune for the movie. Clearly there's a lot of talent involved.

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me is currently open in the Us, and opens in the UK on July 3rd. It stars Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson as a team of magicians that perform in Las Vegas, wowing audiences whilst simultaneously robbing banks, sharing the proceeds with their audience. Whilst there have been numerous movies about witches, wizards and other fantasy magicians, there have been surprisingly few set around theatrical magicians.
Now You See Me isn’t the year’s first, though. Oz: The Great and Powerful featured Oz as a shady stage magician who had to use these skills to defeat an evil witch. There was more stage magic in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a comedy telling the story of a duo of performing magicians who have a falling out. Whilst originally the tricks involved were going to be outrageous, impossible stunts, in the end David Copperfield »

The Iceman ended a year long release process from its initial festival run to it getting released here in the UK to generally positive reviews. We recently had a chance to catch up with director Ariel Vromen to discuss the film’s journey as well what is in store for himself now that his six year long process of getting The Iceman made is finally over.
The idea of making The Iceman was planted in Ariel Vromen’s head after seeing a documentary about Richard Kuklinski.’ I saw a human being that was torturing himself for having such an ability and such a lack of emotion, doing such gruesome murders and being such a good soldier in a way, and then at the same time speaking of such security and love and building such a world of fantasy about his family, something he was lacking as a child and being such emotional about it, »

A hauntingly vague and atmospheric teaser trailer for Cary Fukanaga’s HBO drama series True Detective has been released. With a promise that “darkness lives on both sides of the law,” the footage only reveals a glimpse of stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
Fukanaga’s feature film debut Sin Nombre, in which a Honduran teen with dreams of relocating to the United States reunites with her father, was popular with both critics and audiences. 2011 brought the director’s take on Jane Eyre, with Mia Wasikowska in the titular role. Establishing his talents in feature presentations may make Fukanaga’s transition into television a fruitful one. Additionally, his experiences as a cinematographer, mainly in short dramas such as Clear Water and Two Men, should not be overlooked as they will prove critical in True Detective, as is evident from the teaser.
The series focuses on two Louisiana detectives, played by Harrelson and McConaughey, »

At their core, blockbuster films are known for being over-the-top, loud, and brash. Now You See Me is an attempt at making a smart one. Unfortunately, “summer blockbuster” and “smart” are rarely used in the same sentence. Now You See Me is no exception.
Has the time of the plot twist passed? Just look at what happened to the career of M. Night Shyamalan. Movies these days are more and more adapted from other materials, and audiences who have been exposed to these original media will therefore already know how the movie is supposed to end. Plus, movies that depict or are based on real-life events have become increasingly popular and tend to show favor from critics. Last year, for example, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty achieved both critical and commercial success despite everyone knowing exactly how they will end. Louis Leterrier’s latest film, Now You See Me tries »

When I write my reviews, sometimes I like to write a brief list of all the things I feel I need to mention. These could be general notes, comparisons to other films or jokes I want to put in. For Now You See Me, one of the notes I have written simply says ‘stupid stupid stupid’. That’s because I needed to make sure I sufficiently conveyed how stupid stupid stupid the film was. Because this film really is stupid stupid stupid.

HBO has released a haunting teaser trailer for their new series True Detective, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. It's an eight-episode drama that follows two detectives searching for a serial killer in Louisiana. I enjoy watching shows like this, so I'm looking forward to it. Knowing HBO we can assume that it will be incredibly dark and disturbing.
If the show does well, the idea behind it is to introduce a new mystery with a new cast of characters every season, like American Horror Story is doing.

HBO has unveiled the first teaser trailer for its upcoming "True Detective" crime drama that stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as detectives on the trail of a killer in Louisiana. Check it out below. According to writer Nic Pizzolatto ("The Killing"), the show focuses on "pessimist Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and emotional family man Martin Hart (Harrelson)," adding that the story begins with a set of murders in 1995 and continues for many years. "It's more about the detectives than it is about the killer," he said. "We trace both the case and the relationship [between the cops] and how they change - or don't change - as the years progress."

HBO has released the first teaser for its upcoming series "True Detective," and no, it's not a "True Blood" spinoff.
You could be forgiven for thinking otherwise after watching the 30-second spot for the show, which stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. The promo is pretty much all atmosphere, joining shots of various desolate-looking stretches of Louisiana bayou with brooding music and the tagline, "Around here, darkness lives on both sides of the law." McConaughey and Harrelson appear for about half a second toward the end of the teaser, looking grim.
The teaser even adopts some of "True Blood's" graphics, with words alternately displaying in red and white.
Despite all that, "True Detective" is vampire-free. The two leads play detectives in Louisiana who are involved in a serial-killer case over 17 years. The story will switch between the early days of the case and the present day, when the file is re-opened. »
