While Joseph Gordon-Levitt had his breakout role as Tommy Solomon in the hit sitcom 3rd Rock From The Sun, over the past few years he has managed to prove his skill in front of the camera, in features as varied as Mysterious Skin, 500 Days of Summer and Inception, winning over both commercial and critical audiences. For his next film, however, Gordon-Levitt steps behind the camera as well, taking on writing and directing duties along with the lead role. Titled Don Jon, the film sees Gordon-Levitt starring alongside Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, Brie Larson, and Julianne Moore. Following the release of the movie’s first trailer, a new clip has now surfaced, and can be seen below.

Tom Struthers and John Street are not easy to impress, especially for a team that has worked on some of the finest action movies in Hollywood such as The Bourne Ultimatum, Blood Diamond, Saving Private Ryan, Inception, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. However, the talented action directors were left speechless after Rishi Kapoor performed a brilliantly executed action sequence on the sets of D-day without any training or rehearsals. Read More »

The Movie: Man of Steel (2013) Studio: Warner Bros. Director: Zack Snyder Starring: Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Kal-El, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul, Harry Lennix as General Swanwick, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Nathan Hardy, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White Screenwriters: David S. Goyer; story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan RottenTomatoes: 56% MetaCritic: 55/100 Snippet from My Review: (read my full review here) Overall, Man of Steel is entertaining even though it runs about 25-30 minutes too long. It feels a lot like a film trying really hard not to fail more than trying really hard to work. With nearly 75 percent of it's 143-minute running time used to set the character up, I'm curious to see where they take the story in the future »

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.

All right, all right. Since it’s been sort-of unofficially confirmed that Sam Mendes is signed up for the catchily-named ‘Bond 24’, this is a bit academic but nevertheless his name comes up each and every time a new helmer is needed for the 007 franchise. In fact it was even believed that Christopher Nolan had been informally approached for the next Bond movie before Sam Mendes eventually agreed to return.
Around the time of Inception (2010)—and Christopher Nolan mentioning that film’s debt to the James Bond movies in general and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) in particular—the Internet nearly exploded with volleys of counter-attacks saying why Nolan would be the best or worst thing to happen to Ian Fleming’s superspy.

One of the most esteemed film composers working today, Hans Zimmer's list of credits ranges from Ridley Scott's Gladiator to The Lion King to Inception and all three films in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. This week, Zimmer returns to the DC Universe for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel . At first hesitant to board the Nolan-produced project, Zimmer explains in the below conversation with ComingSoon.net what it took for him to embrace the story on an artistic level and reveals some of the aural experiments he undertook to make the new score something wholly unique. The project also marks the debut of DTS Headphone X, a new technology backed by Zimmer that allows for surround sound to be duplicated within any pair of regular headphones.

While Wally Pfister is currently shooting his feature-length directorial debut "Transcendence," it goes without saying he has plenty of experience behind the camera. Of course, he's been a longtime collaborator with Christopher Nolan, lensing all of the director's films since "Memento," and before that, Pfister cut his teeth as a TV news cameraman. But that's not all he's done. Back in 2010, the year before he'd win an Oscar for his work on "Inception," Pfister dropped a quaint little 5-minute short film/promo entitled "Good Run." Made for Discover Boating, an industry organization to promote recreational boating, the spot aims to capture the feeling of a lifetime of memories that can be found on the water. It's a little sappy (the song, "The Sleepless Sailor" by Kate Rusby is a bit much), but it's nicely edited and effective overall and mostly just an interesting little curiosity in Pfister's CV. Anyway, give it a spin below. »

Call it the curse of Christopher Reeve. The man was just too iconic for his successors’ good. From the admirable but endless Smallville, to Brandon Routh‘s one-off crash landing impersonation of Reeve in Superman Returns (2006), no one has been able to replace the original man of steel in the 35 years since the the 1978 classic, Superman. Now, director Zach Snyder (300, The Watchmen) takes the helm of this deceivingly tricky franchise with a visually dense digital origin story that harkens the return of the evil Kryptonian General, Zod!

Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-winner Everett Burrell about his career, the visual effects industry and working for Look Effects...
Ray Harryhausen and Everett Burrell“Growing up my dad was a musician and my mom was artist,” recalls Everett Burrell who drew and painted as a child. “My little kids draw and paint now, and they’re only three and two. It’s in the blood.” A fascination with special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans) expanded into a business venture with John Vulich (Lost Boys). “I was into creature effects and props when I was younger. I had a company called Optic Nerve Studios where I did zombies and creatures. I started playing with the computer in 1989 and I’ve loved it ever since. I loved the control and flexibility but I still respect effects. My heart is in the hands on stuff.” The interest in the »
In an article detailing how movie studio's loyalty to certain actors and directors can sometimes backfire, THR reveal that Darren Aronofsky was not only on Warner Bros.' Radar for Man Of Stee, it seems he was actually a "finalist", and it came down to he and Zack Snyder for the gig. "Snyder’s three subsequent Warners films — Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and Sucker Punch — disappointed. However, while giving him Man of Steel (over the other finalist, Darren Aronofsky), Robinov took out insurance with producer Christopher Nolan, the studio’s most important filmmaker (Batman, Inception)." Aronofsky is a director that fans have wanted to see helm a Cbm (probably because the man is incapable of making a bad movie) for a very long time. He passed on The Wolverine, but now it seems we also missed out on witnessing his vision for Superman - »
In the last 10 years, Hans Zimmer has written music for some 40 film and television projects, including Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise and the recent smash-hit History Channel miniseries "The Bible."
"I haven't had a day off for I don't know how long, but that's all right," Zimmer, whose IMDb page lists 158 composer credits, including Nolan's upcoming film "Interstellar," told HuffPost Entertainment. "These are good problems."
Zimmer's "good problems" carry on throughout 2013: an Oscar-winner for the 1994 film "The Lion King," Zimmer wrote the music for no less than four highly anticipated movies this year, including "The Lone Ranger," "Rush," "Twelve Years a Slave" and this week's "Man of Steel." With Zack Snyder's Superman reboot out on June 14 -- and the soundtrack available now -- Zimmer spoke to HuffPost Entertainment about working on "Man of Steel," how he handled the specter of John Williams »

Man Of Steel flies into cinemas this Friday and to get you in the mood (as if you needed it anyway) we’ve compiled an extensive list of trivia about one of most anticipated movies in years. Before Zack Snyder got the directing gig for Man Of Steel, a whole bunch of other directors were also considered including Darren Aronofsky, Duncan Jones, Benn Affleck, Tony Scott and Matt Reeves. According to Zack Snyder, the filmmakers outfitted Henry Cavill in the Superman costume to see how well he fit the role. Despite the outfit bearing a lighter blue color and red trunks, no one laughed at Cavill. Snyder knew then that Cavill was right for the role. Christopher Nolan (Inception, Dark Knight Trilogy) was brought on as a creative consultant and was never going to direct the movie. According to Emma Thomas (Nolan’s wife / producer) once David S. Goyer and »

I don't know if I'd call it inspiration, influence or a not-so-clandestine effort to capture audience attention, but the weight of producer Christopher Nolan looms over Zack Snyder's Man of Steel in many ways. Working as producer and given a story credit, the man that brought us Batman Begins and the entirety of The Dark Knight franchise oversees a similar journey of self as another superhero sets out on a path to serve the world he's struggling to feel part of. Just as Bruce Wayne's father guided him from beyond the grave (albeit in the form of an aging butler), so is the same for Kal-El (Henry Cavill), the last naturally born son of Krypton, sent to Earth as a newborn by his mother and father (Ayelet Zurer and Russell Crowe) so he could live on, following the destruction of his home planet. The Earth's sun gives his alien »

Some days you just want to walk down the street in your bright-red wig and blue body paint without the whole world staring at you; if you're Jennifer Lawrence, you can get away with the first part, at least. Lawrence was recently seen on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past in her rather revealing "costume" for her shape-shifting character, Mystique. The body paint doesn't leave much to the imagination, which you can see for yourself in this new batch of set photos. Also appearing on set are director Bryan Singer and a mystery guest who some are theorizing to be the super-strong and bionically-enhanced Misty Knight. Also starring Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, Peter Dinklage and Evan Peters, not to mention returning franchise members Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Daniel Cudmore, and Halle Berry, X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
