Coinciding with the release of today's rather splendid action-packed fourth theatrical trailer for Man of Steel, The New York Times has posted an article featuring interviews with director Zack Snyder (Watchmen), producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises) and screenwriter David S. Goyer (Batman Begins), as the trio discuss how they intend to make 'The World's Greatest Superhero' relevant for the 21st century.
"When they try to dress him up, put him in jeans and a T-shirt or a leather jacket with an S on it, I go: ‘What? Guys, it’s O.K. It’s Superman. He’s the king daddy. You should all be bowing down to him,'" states Snyder. "He’s a really cool mythological contradiction. He’s incredibly familiar Americana and alien, exotic, bizarroland, but beautifully woven together. All of us, in a weird way, are that same kind of contradiction — no one’s that simple. »

Goyer (Batman Begins) and Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises), Man of Steel sees Henry Cavill (Immortals) donning the cape as Superman as he looks to protect Earth from General Zod (Michael Shannon; Boardwalk Empire) and his right hand woman Faora (Antje Traue; Pandorum).

Radius-twc acquired Man of Tai Chi, which serves as the actor's directorial debut. The story, set in modern-day Beijing, follows a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) who finds himself in the middle of a lucrative underground fight scene, where he must compromise his own morals to get out alive. Keanu Reeves co-stars alongside The Raid: Redemption's Iko Uwais and Jeremy Marinas. Here's what Keanu Reeves had to say about his first directorial effort landing at Radius-twc.
"I could not hope for a better home than Radius-twc for Man of Tai Chi. Their passion, understanding and support of the film is what a filmmaker wishes for in bringing their storytelling to the widest possible audience."
This is Paz de la Huerta -- beautiful Paz of modeling and "Boardwalk Empire" fame, and at first glance, she looks like any normal 40-something jetsetter that just took a red eye to Lax. However? Paz de la Huerta is not your normal 40-something jetsetter, primarily because she's not 40-something -- she's 28 years old, guys. 28. Paz has been pretty candid about living an alcohol-infused lifestyle, and she's never been shy in admitting that she's a pretty hard partier (not that there'd really be any disputing it; there's footage of her shenanigans all over the Internets), and looking at this picture, it's apparent that staying up all night and drinking and smoking and dancing can really take its toll on a girl. At the end of the day, she's still a pretty lady and all, but wow. Maybe she should cut down to, you know, just two packs of cigarettes a day, »

MacDonald novel The Deep Blue Good-By, with Leonardo DiCaprio playing the title character. Here's an official description of the novel below.
"Travis McGee -- He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half..."
This project will mark the first time that author/screenwriter Dennis Lehane is adapting another writer's work, although he has written episodes of The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, and Castle. Leonardo DiCaprio starred in Shutter Island, an »

Exclusive: The Weinstein Company has won the bidding for the Keanu Reeves-Reese Witherspoon sci-fi romance movie Passengers. I’m hearing the distributor has committed to a multi-million dollar minimum guarantee and a P&A commitment in the $25 million range for a wide release in 2014.

Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness) has offered some advice to Warner Bros. about their planned Justice League movie, which will tie together their superhero properties of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc - just like Marvel did with The Avengers / Avengers Assemble.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof was asked whether he would help WB solve their 'Justice League problem' if they called. He deflected the question with his superpower of Suggestion Shield...
"I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They »

The official synopsis: A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, Boardwalk Empire) rules his family with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that »

Chicago – Another great Michael Shannon performance should come as no surprise as everything he touches lately seems to be interesting, from “Take Shelter” to “Boardwalk Empire” to letters written by batshit crazy sorority girls. However, his increasingly impressive ability can’t save “The Iceman,” a misguided, clichéd hitman flick that careens tonally and doesn’t really justify its existence. It doesn’t work as thriller or as drama, serving as little more than a performance piece for its talented star.
“The Iceman” was the alias for the notorious Richard Kuklinski, a seemingly average guy who happened to be a total psychopath. The most successful people find a way to turn their skills into financial assets and Kuklinski became one of the most notorious mob hitmen of the twentieth century after crossing paths with the legendary Roy DeMeo (Ray Liotta). Kuklinski worked at one of DeMeo’s porn production houses »

Fans of cable television shows like "Boardwalk Empire" should have no trouble recognizing actor Michael Zegen. Part of the next generation of "that guys" -- those character actors who show up in what seems like everything -- Zegen has appeared on "The Sopranos," "How To Make It In America," "Rescue Me," "The Walking Dead," and, most recently, the aforementioned "Boardwalk Empire," where he plays mobster Bugsy Siegel. This week, Zegen co-stars in Noah Baumbach's new film "Frances Ha" as Benji, a nice guy who becomes friend and roommate to the title character (Greta Gerwig), a 27-year-old modern dancer struggling with life in New York.
"When we would do the scenes, I would watch playback and I knew it was something special," Zegen told HuffPost Entertainment about the film, which premiered last year on the festival circuit to rave reviews and hits theaters in limited release on May 17. The black »

Three new production featurettes for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film Man of Steel have been released (below) by Norton Anti-Virus. Yup. You know - the comic book-loving, computer protection programme (maybe Kryptonite is a new piece of malware).
There are a few glimpses of the film outside of those featured in the three trailers released so far, but interviews with cast and crew are also included. Each featurette focuses on a different one of Kal-El's powers: Strength, Flight and Speed.
"In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark soon discovers »
