Credits sequences in Superman movies have almost always been amazing. Usually, John Williams’ iconic score plays a large part in that but with Man of Steel, Zack Snyder doesn’t have his music to fall back on. There’s a lot to live up to, in many ways.
For the credits sequence, though, maybe Snyder will take a hint from the design company Will & Tale. They’ve created a gorgeous, poignant credits sequence to the film, beautifully blending the tropes of modern society with the origins of the character. It’s not official or anything, just for fun, but it’s well worth your time. Read More »

Trailers! Who has time to watch them all? There are something like forty wide releases due out this summer alone. If you assume each trailer runs about two minutes, that’s about an hour and half of your life you’ll never get back. That’s time you could’ve spent actually watching one of these movies.
If you only watch one trailer this spring, then, you’ll want to make it this one. This three-minute supercut teases most of the season’s biggest releases, from Iron Man 3 to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s surprisingly coherent, which may suggest that these titles aren’t as different as the filmmakers would like us to think. Or maybe it just proves that with the right music and some skillful editing, you can totally change the meaning of any scene. In any case, watch it after the jump.

There’s a lot we don’t know about Warner Bros. planned Justice League superhero team-up film. We don’t know for certain what characters will be involved, who will star, or what the story will be.
We do know that Will Beall (the Gangster Squad screenwriter) wrote a draft at one point, and the general party line is that the studio has abandoned it in favor of a different take. We’ve heard that the future of the film depends heavily upon the success of Zack Snyder‘s Superman revival Man of Steel, and that Snyder’s Superman success is looking more and more like a guarantee based on reactions to trailers for his film.
The reported relationship between Superman’s fate and the super-team’s future has led to the supposition that Snyder would be asked to direct Justice League. Now there’s a new report to fan the flames of rumor saying that Snyder is WB’s choice for the job. Read More »
