Despite the fact that the blogosphere has been inundated with set photos and interviews pertaining to Man of Steel, Zack Snyder’s take on Superman is still more than a year away. By the time this film finally arrives, will we already know everything there is to know about it?
Michael Shannon – who plays General Zod – recently discussed how evil (or not) his character is and even shared a line from the upcoming film, while directory McG (This Means War), who was attached to a previous cinematic iteration of Superman, talked about his lament at not being able to see his vision come to fruition.
On the topic of how villainous Zod is, courtesy of IFC Fix, Shannon said:
“He’s actually a not ...

Were you already struggling to keep track of which studio was working on which Dracula retelling? Well, Sony Pictures has decided to contribute to your ongoing confusion by paying a handsome sum to acquire a pitch for yet another new spin on Bram Stoker’s iconic horror novel about the eponymous immortal blood-sucking monster of the night.
Sony’s Dracula project has already snagged Joe Roth and Palak Patel as producers. That pair’s collective resume already includes three other major classic literature retellings and/or spinoffs: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, this summer’s Snow White and the Huntsman, and Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful (which is due out in Spring 2013).
Deadline is reporting that this particular Dracula project is based on a pitch devised by Jason Keller, the primary writer on last year’s quickly-forgotten “prestigious” ...

The extended delay between season 4 and the upcoming season 5 of AMC’s critical darling Mad Men has only heightened excitement to see the next chapter in the ongoing tale of ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm).
In keeping with show creator Matthew Weiner’s history of playing things close to the chest, the character-centric Mad Men S5 teasers have all been composed of footage from previous seasons, so as to remind viewers about why they love this series so much (without giving away any concrete hints about what’s to come).

Black and white silent film parodies of modern movies have been all the rage as of late, thanks to the popularity of newly-crowned Best Picture Oscar winner The Artist. Today we have one such video that also pokes fun at a certain upcoming title the comic book movie crowd has been eagerly looking forward to: Joss Whedon’s The Avengers.
This clever little fan-made trailer for The Avengers first hit the Interwebz a few months back, but is only now getting some deserved attention thanks to The Artist making headlines left and right. So what better way to honor both that film and the original Hollywood movies that told rich and engaging stories (without the benefit of color and synchronized sound) than by watching a tongue-in-cheek trailer that envisions what Whedon’s superhero ensemble adventure might’ve been ...
