Man Of Steel Makes $46 Million On Friday On Its Way To Huge Box Office Weekend
It's now on track for $120 million for the weekend proper, with another $12 million on top of that if you count a series of showing on Thursday night held at Wal-Mart (yes, that really happened). That's more than twice what Superman Returns made on its opening weekend in 2006-- that film debuted to $52 million and topped out with just $200 million in the United States, a number Man of Steel ought to be able to pass after its second weekend
Ray Winstone Will Mentor Sean Penn In The Gunman
Based on the novel "Prone Gunman" by Jean-Patrick Manchette, the story centers on an international operative (Penn) who is turned on by his handlers and forced to go on the run through various locales in Europe.

Relatability And The Importance Of Krypton: Talking Superman With Man Of Steel's David Goyer
With the new Superman film in theaters nationwide this weekend, I recently had a chance to sit down with the screenwriter and pick his brain about all things Man of Steel. Read on to find out how the story developed in comparison to working with Batman as a lead, the choice to use non-linear storytelling, and how this movie’s version of Superman is really able to fly and lift heavy objects.
Watch Ryan Hansen Celebrate His Return For Veronica Mars Movie
Well, Ryan Hansen sure does know how to make an announcement. Since he appeared in the original video for the Veronica Mars movie Kickstarter campaign, we sort of figured there was a good chance Hansen would be on board to appear in the film, reprising his role as the lovably douchey Dick Casablancas, however his casting had not yet officially been announced.
Gary Oldman Plans To Direct Eadweard Muybridge Biopic With Ralph Fiennes And Benedict Cumberbatch
Oldman himself wrote the script, and it centers on the affair between Flora Muybridge and theater critic Harry Larkyns, who was later murdered by Muybridge, later acquitted of the crimes. Oldman wants Fiennes in the leading role, with Cumberbatch as the critic.
Krysten Ritter Confirmed For Veronica Mars Movie
Before she was the titular "B" in Apartment 23 and Jesse Pinkman's girlfriend Jane in Breaking Bad, Krysten Ritter played the recurring role of Gia Goodman in the second season of Veronica Mars. A little bit flaky and a lot adorable, Ritter's Gia brought style and some much needed perkiness to Season 2, in addition to being an in for Veronica to snoop around Steve Guttenberg's Woody Goodman when the need arose.
Only God Forgives Green Band Trailer Drops Profanity But Retains Intensity
Regardless of how the final product lands with me and with audiences, Only God Forgives could exist solely as a series of trailers and still be a moderate success. (I feel the same way about some of the trailers for the Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.)
Why A Lex Luthor Movie Should Follow Man Of Steel
With Man of Steel in theaters, Superman is at the forefront of pop culture once again. The film re-introduces moviegoers to the story of a man from Krypton who's finding his place on earth and squaring off against the villainous General Zod. Walking out of the theater, many might speculate over what the sequel might bring. Will Lex Luthor be the next big villain to face the Man of Steel?

Timeline Maps Out Settings Of Sci-Fi Classics
2013 now and we still haven't mastered the technology of Back to the Future Part II's hover board, much less mass-marketed hover mobiles. Still, at least society hasn't devolved so far that Manhattan has become a maximum-security prison. And while class struggle is frequent topic of conversation, let's be glad "bonejacking" a la Freejack hasn't come to fruition yet.
