Though general audiences have yet lay eyes on Kathryn Bigelow's film chronicling the decade-long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty won Best Picture at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards. Bigelow herself got an individual award herself, while her movie split the lion's share of the awards with a certain political drama centering on the 16th United States President.
Having set up a rebooted Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, director Marc Webb and Sony Pictures have been hard at work on the follow-up long scheduled for May 2, 2014. The casting process so far has been pretty high profile as new actors join Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in the planned trilogy.
To keep this short and oh-so sweet, Webb has found his Harry Osborn: Dane DeHaan.
A new poster for next summer's Man of Steel has landed gracefully online.
One of the issues that this reboot must address is the contemporary perception of Superman as too powerful and virtuous, a character out of touch for these times in which we're more likely to identify with a traumatized billionaire who dresses as a bat.

Apparently there's a fantasy movie scheduled to arrive next year that stars Jeff Bridges as a crusty old knight. This alone is enough to incite interest in Seventh Son, a movie that I had no idea existed until two official images revealed our first looks at Bridges in character, along with Ben Barnes as a young man destined for greatness and Julianne Moore as an evil witch.
The very first trailer for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is now available to view, free of charge. The theatrical trailer is packed with strange, surreal happenings. Despite the headline image, however, it doesn't have all that much Bill Murray.
Mere days after the first clip from Kathryn Bigelow's Osama bin Laden manhunt picture Zero Dark Thirty landed online, a follow-up trailer is making the rounds, along with six brand new images from the fact-based thriller.
The weekend following the extended Thanksgiving break is never really gangbusters at multiplexes, but this year, it managed to exceed the corresponding frame last year by a solid 42%. That upswing is attributable pretty much exclusively to holdovers, as the box office estimates show a top ten that looks very much like last weekend's, with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part, Skyfall, and Lincoln in first, second, and third place, respectively.
