Outside a submarine thousands of leagues under the sea lies a dark, cold death. Inside the sub lies a crew on a mission that could salvage their lives…Mining full-speed-ahead tension from a fathoms-deep treasure hunt, Black Sea is a suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald.
Robinson (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) is a submarine captain, and the sea calls him at the expense of all else: his nearly 30 years of voyages have cost him the love of his wife Chrissy (Jodie Whittaker) and child. When the salvage company for whom he has toiled over 11 years abruptly lays him off, this working-class ex-Navy man finds himself adrift.
But after hearing the tale of a German U-boat full of WWII-era gold sitting on a bed in the Georgian depths of the Black Sea, the captain feels he can prove himself anew. He jumps at a funding »

According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com and their sources, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" Lois Lane star, Amy Adams (left), delivered some new intel about how many scenes she'll get with Ben Affleck's Batman,and it turns out that she'll only get one scene with him. She told the press: “Ben is going to be his own unique thing. He’s got a wonderful quality and a great body of work. I was only in one scene with him, I think I’m allowed to say that.

According to a new report from Movieweb and their sources, there's some new rumors flying around that claims the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action movie is bringing back the dead corpse of Michael Shannon's General Zod (left) to be the dreaded Doomsday villain! If the rumor turns out to be true, the film would supposedly have Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) experiment on Zod's dead body, since it is, "the key to his master plan to defeat Superman." The experiment would then "trigger the Doomsday genome" which re-animates the dead body and turns it into the villainous Doomsday. They did reiterate that this is an unconfirmed rumor as it has not been confirmed by Warner Bros. Pictures. With that being said, something like this could possibly take place. Of course, if it does, we more than likely wouldn't know until we actually see it in »

Shannon played General Zod in Man of Steel but due to his character’s fate in that film, it was thought unlikely that he would return for the latest instalment in the series. However, Shannon was spotted alongside Henry Cavill in Chicago a few months back, and now a new report from Comic Book is claiming that General Zod will appear in the new movie, with his body serving as the basis for Doomsday.
“His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we’ve been told that he “triggers the Doomsday genome,” causing the corpse to reanimate as »

Recently, Variety got to chat up "Batman v Superman: Daw Of Justice" Lex Luthor star, Jessie Eisenberg (left), and he answered a few of their questions about the film. However, he wasn't able to be too descriptive as the studio doesn't want them to say much at all. In response to a question about his head being shaved in the movie, Jesse told them: "I can’t say anything about this stuff. They want all this to be a surprise." After that, he commented on whether he'd like to play Lex Luthor again, stating: "I would love to. It’s a great group and director, and the most ideal character to play." Then the interview capped off with Jesse revealing that he wasn't a Superman fan as a child. However, he did go back and watch previous Superman films after landing the Lex Luthor role. As for the movie, it »
At the premiere in New York of Kevin Macdonald's action-packed marine thriller Black Sea, starring an intrepid Jude Law with Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn, I asked Law about his relationship to the ocean and talked with producer Charles Steel about the horror of shackled skeletons. Screenwriter Dennis Kelly gives the world an ultimatum and I found out from the director that for him grapefruit rituals differ from continent to continent.
Law's face in Black Sea, looking a bit more roughed up and disillusioned than we are used to, commands the story of survival and greed. Wolfgang Petersen's Das Boot meets Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, meets Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly. The latter because of the team of McNairy [as Daniels] and Mendelsohn [as Fraser]. The two actors form again a wildly entertaining duo of unsavoury immoral characters. »

Ever heard of second-tier DC superhero Fatman? Because he might be starring in the new Zack Snyder film.

Speaking of that epic team-up film, we also have the thoughts of its fight choreographer (he reckons it’s the best movie ever) And George Lucas, the Star Wars daddio, finally gives his thoughts on Jj Abrams’ The Force Awakens.

Recently, USA Today chatted up Scoot McNairy (left) who's playing a new, mystery character in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick, and he spilled a little bit of new details about his character. However, they were still vague as hell as he's not allowed to say much because the studio wants to keep everyone tight-lipped. It turns out that it will be a character he's never played before, and he had to get into something that he was very unaccustomed to, to play the role. Scoot stated: 'It’s definitely 100% a character I’ve never played and I can’t speak too freely on it, but yeah, getting into that thing was definitely something I had to wrap my head around emotionally in order to play that character. But with that being said, I had a lot of fun doing it when I was »
Prepare to see a grave (and aquatic) side of two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law.
In Focus Features’ suspenseful adventure-thriller “Black Sea” — which premiered in New York on Wednesday night — Law gives a charged performance as an abruptly unemployed submarine captain who’s commissioned to lead a team of shoddy British and Russian sailors in search of a Nazi U-boat filled with gold that was lost during World War II.
For the taxing but rewarding project, Law gained weight (by eating lots of steak), shaved his head and learned to speak with a heavy Scottish-Aberdeen accent.
“This was a role that I had never done before, and it was challenging,” Law, 42, told Variety prior to the film’s screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema. “I was immediately fascinated by my character’s complexity. He’s a man torn between revenge and reclaiming his dignity. He wasn’t a hero, but more of an anti-hero. »

Although details surrounding the plot of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are being kept under wraps, we know who most of the main players will be - ranging from Jesse Eisenberg's antagonist Lex Luthor to Gal Gadot's Amazon demi-goddess Wonder Woman to Jeremy Irons' butler extraordinaire Alfred Pennyworth. Among the few roles that are still a mystery, however, is the character being played by Scoot McNairy - Ben Affleck.s costar from Argo and Gone Girl. Despite his casting being announced five months ago, the production has kept his character.s identity locked up tighter than Superman.s Fortress of Solitude. But now the actor has offered fans some new clues for us to mull over. McNairy was playfully vague with his answers about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during a recent interview with USA Today, saying that while he would love to talk about »
Is Scoot McNairy playing a legless Jimmy Olsen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Could he be Metallo? No one is really sure, and the actor sure isn't ready to reveal whom he is playing in next spring's epic DC Comic adventure. Speaking with USA Today, Scoot did provide a couple of clues. But be warned, they are pretty vague.
"It's definitely 100% a character I've never played and I can't speak too freely on it, but yeah, getting into that thing was definitely something I had to wrap my head around emotionally in order to play that character. But with that being said, I had a lot of fun doing it when I was in the process of shooting on it - my head was in a different place but I'm really excited to see how it turns out and what they do with it and see the film. »
When Scoot McNairy was spotted on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wearing green socks in order to make some sort of changes to the lower half of his legs through the use of CGI in post production, speculation on who he might be playing began. Was it The Flash? Metallo? Someone wounded in the battle between Superman and General Zod? We still don't know, and the Halt and Catch Fire star refused to give any details away while talking to USA Today recently. He did however described director Zack Snyder as "an incredible filmmaker and an incredible visionary," adding: "Playing in that world with comic books you’ve been readings since you were a kid, being someone in that world, it’s awesome." Could he give any clues as to who he's playing in the movie? Well, yes and no, but it certainly sounds like it »
According to Comingsoon.net this photo (above) is an image that supposedly appeared on t-shirts that were reportedly given out to the "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" crew, and gives a possible depiction of what the epic fight scene might look like between Batman and Superman in the movie. The pic showed up on Chicago’s Ephrain Silva Twitter account, and features a best look at Ben Affleck’s “Dark Knight Returns” armor. However, they do say to take this with a grain of salt as none of it has been officially confirmed by Warner Bros. Pictures. As for the movie, it stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jeremy Irons, »

A new image of a Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice crew member shirt has been making waves online today, and for good reason.
Not only does it offer up a great illustrated look at an armored Batman facing off with Henry Cavill’s Superman in what’s very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but it uses a quote from that seminal comic as well: “…Remind them that giants walk the Earth.”
Interestingly, the quote is actually only part of what Miller originally wrote: “We must not remind them that giants walk the Earth.” If the actual quote is in Batman V Superman at all, perhaps Snyder is paraphrasing or reworking it. Or maybe it’s just included here because it looks badass on the T-shirt.

Batman v Superman will make cinema history, says Henry Cavill
Henry Cavill: 'Batman v Superman will only be one film'
Speaking to Los Andes Diario (via Batman News), Grispo said: "There's a thought that Batman has no chance, that the Superman will squash him like a bug.
"But when you see the movie, and how it all comes out, there's a very intelligent explanation as to why they would have a first-hand confrontation, though it seems to be totally to Batman's disadvantage."
He continued: "Now Batman is going to fight the way »
