Hot on the heels of the enthusiastically received new trailer for Man of Steel, Zack Snyder has offered a little taste of another of his upcoming projects.
The filmmaker took to Twitter to reveal the first poster for 300: Rise of an Empire, the long-awaited sequel to his 2006 comic book adaptation 300. Noam Murro (Smart People) takes over in the director’s chair this time around, while Snyder serves as co-writer and producer. Check out the new art after the jump. Read More »
Here’s the big reveal of all the secrets Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have hidden within the new Superman film, Man of Steel. Days ago we saw a grainy video broadcast featuring the villain General Zod (Michael Shannon) and his demand for humanity to hand over Kal-El / Superman (Henry Cavill). Now this new trailer shows not only what happens when Zod’s plan doesn’t go off in quite the way he hopes, but who Superman is and what makes him tick. Thankfully, all of that results in a lot more action. Read More »
Okay, so I know you’ve already seen the trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. Snyder was in Las Vegas at CinemaCon to premiere the trailer, which was exactly timed with when the video went online.
The Warner Bros presentation this year was kind of underwhelming, it may have something to do with all the bad buzz they got last year with their preview of early 48fps Hobbit footage. Whatever the reason, they kept most of their presentation safe, sticking mostly to trailers or previously cut footage (for instance the Pacific Rim reel already played at WonderCon). The Man of Steel trailer was very impressive, and they also screened the first trailer (or was it a teaser trailer?) for Alfanso Cuaron‘s Gravity, which was breathtaking. I’m not sure when Warner Bros will be officially releasing this trailer, maybe on Oblivion?
We recorded a video blog giving quick reactions to both of these trailer, and failed in our attempt to discuss them in less time than the source trailers themselves. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.

Two of the biggest questions surrounding Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot Man of Steel would be how much of the original origin he kept intact, and whether or not the film would feature cameos from other superheroes. Answers to those questions are both provided, or at least strongly suggested, in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. The article details how the origin manages to be both similar to and radically different from the original version. It also confirms that the film “allows you to really introduce other characters in the same world.”
UPDATE: EW published a few more quotes that confirm Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale will not be a part of Justice League, but we can expect an announcement in that realm very soon. Read More »
Looks like this week’s Entertainment Weekly is a must-buy. The cover story is on Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and it’s chock full of brand-new details, many of which would be considered spoilers. We’ll report on everything once the magazine is out (probably Thursday on iPad at least) but they’ve already posted a few small snippets. Read them below. Read More »
He’s coming. Superman is flying back to theaters on June 14 and the first TV commercial for Man of Steel aired Monday night. Basically a shorter version of the trailer that’s been online for a few months, Zack Snyder and the crew are being very stingy with new footage. There may be a shot or two in here but, either way, if you’re as excited for the film as we are, you’ll want to watch this. You might just get goosebumps. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Director Zack Snyder‘s adaptation of Frank Miller‘s graphic novel 300 turned into a surprise hit in 2006, and ever since then there has been speculation about the sequel, or prequel. Miller quickly went to work on a related graphic novel, and several years ago Snyder and his co-writer Kurt Johnstad got to work on a script.
It took some time, but director Noam Murro was eventually set to direct what became called 300: Rise of an Empire, with Sullivan Stapleton set to star as Greek general Themistokles in a story that parallels the original 300.
That image above is the first look at a battle from the new film, and below we’ve got a shot of Stapleton in character. (Hint: he looks like he belongs in 300.) Read More »
