Amy Adams on Man of Steel and Recreating Lois Lane

14 September 2012

Man of Steel doesn't come out until next summer and we still have very few details about the film as it is. There are two teasers  that played this summer with The Dark Knight Rises and there are a handful of photos but other than that, we know very little. One detail that has kept our interest piqued is the lovely Amy Adams as Lois Lane. From what we've seen, her appearance hasn't been altered much for the role of Superman's love interest. In an interview with Yahoo! Movies , they noted that she's completed flming on Man of Steel and how Lois Lane is another extension of 'broud shouldered' female characters that she has played. Adams replied, " Absolutely. It was fun. It was intimidating because it was played before by Margot Kidder, whom I love. »

A Look at the Game of Thrones Season 3 Set

14 September 2012

The Official Production Diary for HBO's "Game of Thrones" has posted an image from the set of Season 3 along with this post on the scene that was being filmed in Northern Ireland: In the forests of Clandeboye, on a Wednesday afternoon in August, a man and his wife were walking their dog and heard the sound of a fight. It was an important rehearsal, and the two main protagonists are two of my season favorites: an unexpected pairing, whose war of words is almost as full-on as the fight. This struggle has been choreographed and rehearsed for weeks, with each move carefully placed to match the terrain. The fighters wore pads and fell on crash matts, though for the close-ups later in the week, during the first night shoot of the season, the landing would not be quite so »
