Michael Shannon To Play Superman's Archenemy General Zod

April 11th, 2011 9:43am EDT
Michael Shannon
Actor Michael Shannon has landed the coveted villain role in the upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise.

The Revolutionary Road star will play General Zod opposite British hunk Henry Cavill as the young superhero - and director Zack Snyder is delighted with the casting.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Zod is not only one of Superman's most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don't. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role."

Whale_Rider
Every year, the Oscar nominations seem all sewn up. There are so many predictors – winners of critics’ awards, Golden Globe nominees and winners, BAFTA nominees and the SAG nominees. Yet somehow, almost every year, a nominee slips in out of nowhere, and pundits shake their heads asking, “Where did that come from?”

This year’s Oscar nominees will be announced next week, Jan. 25. We won’t speculate yet, but there are bound to be some surprise nominees, even to the pundits.

Let’s take a look back at the last 10 years and look at what was particularly surprising among the major Oscar nomin...

Leonardo DiCaprio's Attacker: 'He Started It'

August 23rd, 2010 8:39pm EDT
Leonardo DiCaprio
The woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio's face with a glass during a 2005 Hollywood party insists the actor started the altercation by threatening her.

Aretha Wilson allegedly hit the "Inception" star during a house party thrown by Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend, film producer Rick Salomon. DiCaprio was allegedly hospitalized after the attack, which left him needing 17 stitches to close up a large cut across his face.

Wilson, 40, who was previously ordered to stay at least 500 yards away from DiCaprio, is being held on $150,000 bail and was arraigned in a Los Angeles court earlier t...

Kate Winslet
We spotted Kate Winslet and her boyfriend, British model Louis Dowler, hit the town together in London on Friday night. We think Kate looks great in her little black dress. What do you think?

The happy couple held hands as they left the Groucho Club before making their way to Mahiki nightclub in Mayfair. They returned to their hotel at nearly 3 a.m.

Kate and director Sam Mendes announced in March that their seven-year marriage had come to an end earlier this year. The split appeared to be amicable, with both of them stepping out in public with their children shortly after the news hit the...

Titanic
Liv Tyler and Viggo Mortensen have topped a new list of Hollywood's highest earning on-screen couples thanks to their Lord Of The Rings romance.

Best Space Movies

Moon
The subject of space is a difficult one in terms of selecting films. Qualifying elements are somewhat subjective. Does the film have to take place in space? Must it include aliens? Does a mere reference to space, or different planets, make it a "space" film? In short, is it merely a subgenre of science fiction? Space and science fiction, while not mutually exclusive, can occur without the other.

In celebration of the release of one of the newest and most promising space films, Moon, check out a brief list of our favorite space films. What you will find below is a mix of films t...

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

June 1st, 2009 4:54pm EDT
Land of the Lost
I'm ashamed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to see "Terminator Salvation," but it's my top priority to see it this week. I also need to get out and see "Drag Me to Hell," because I continue to hear nothing but good things about it.

This week is a big week for comedies, with four premiering. We have "Land of the Lost," "Away We Go," "The Hangover," and "My Life in Ruins." I'm very excited because I will be seeing an advanced screening of "The Hangover." I have high hopes that it will be very funny, but I'll let you know what I think after I see it.

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

Spotlight On Kathryn Hahn

March 5th, 2009 12:22pm EST
Kathryn Hahn
There are those types of actors in Hollywood who have recognizable faces but their names seem to slip your mind. Remember when Philip Seymour Hoffman and Don Cheadle were those types of elusive actors? They were in every genre of movie and their face was recognizable, but you drew a blank on their names. Now Philip is an Oscar winner and Don is an Oscar nominee. Kathryn Hahn shouldn't be one of those actors anymore! Drill her face AND name into your head - Kathryn Hahn.

Although Kathryn tends to gravitate towards comedic roles, she has a background in Broadway and television and made ...

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

Oscars
After months of speculation, it's finally time to man up and throw down with some hardcore Oscar predictions. But before we tell you who will and should win the Oscar on Sunday night, let's address the whole secrecy notion surrounding this year's event.

You may not have heard (which is probably part of the point) but the Academy has decided to surround this year's ceremony in mystery. Mainly, they've refused to reveal who will be presenting Oscars this year and have gone so far as to forbid its presenters from appearing on the red carpet. Why? Because they think fashionistas will b...

Oscar Nomination Reaction: The Snubs, Surprises & Who Shouldn't Have Been Nominated

January 23rd, 2009 9:55am EST
The Dark Knight
There's nothing better than a good surprise on Oscar morning, and this year we had one in almost every category. Before we get to the snubs, the surprises and who shouldn't be nominated, let's take a look at what type of a morning this was:

This was the morning that The Academy once again showed how out-of-touch it is. By not dominating "The Dark Knight", the Oscars continued to show that it doesn't care about nominating movies people actually like. There was absolutely no reason this film shouldn't get nominated: It has a 94% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it got an A from audi...

Slumdog Millionaire
The time has come, after several months of campaigning and voting, we're finally set for the big day. No, not the inauguration. Please. We're talking about Oscar morning.

Those fifteen minutes at the crack of dawn where overly-caffeinated celebs awkwardly read the names of the top five in each category. Always gripping. Also, this is prime time for predictions. All the returns are in, the precursor season is over, so there's not excuses left. Without delay, here are my final Oscar Predictions.

Okay, one delay. I should note that I hate being right. I hate getting predictio...

Truth, Justice and Gordon Shumway: 'Titanic Revolution'

December 23rd, 2008 10:51am EST
Revolutionary Road
(TJGS weekly column) - There has been a bit of a backlash toward the all-time box office king, Titanic. I have never been one of its detractors, though, admittedly, the effects of the mass amounts of saccharine ingested from the full-on Titanic onslaught in late 1997 and early 1998 can still be felt eleven years later. Of course, there is nothing wrong with Titanic, in fact there are a lot of things very much right about Titanic -- $600 million domestic gross and the Academy award for Best Picture aside. Think about what it did: this was a three hour and fifteen minute long movie (yes, thre...

12 Upcoming Films To See Before Oscar Night

November 12th, 2008 9:52am EST
Revolutionary Road
This year's Oscar race isn't very deep with talent, and at this point there are probably only eight films with a legitimate shot at getting a nod for Best Picture. But those that have a chance at a nomination also have a great chance of winning.

One such film, "The Dark Knight", has already hit screens, but the rest of this group will premiere in the coming weeks as studios scramble to get their prestige pictures on the big screen before the year-end deadline.

Every year, film fans are tormented by the true snobs who catch all these possible nominees before the big awards show att...

Made In Connecticut: Filmmakers Turn East Coast State Into Moviemaking Mecca

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Is Connecticut the new Hollywood? Probably not, but it has become a hotspot for filmmaking. The quaint, colonial towns and Yale's impressive architecture led director Steven Spielberg to direct a portion of his highly anticipated "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" in New Haven. Director Sam Mendes admits that the state is a central character in his latest movie, "Revolutionary Road," starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Sure, the New England state is beautiful in the fall with its crimson leaves, pumpkin patches, and white picket fences. It features beautifu...
