When an alien lifeform crashed to Earth decades ago, no one noticed. When his own kind came after him, the fate of the world was threatened. When he saved mankind, they looked up to him like a God. But times have changed, and people have died since his arrival. The world has had enough of the "false God" Superman (Henry Cavill), but there is already another hero in the world. In Gotham City, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) has spent years and billions of dollars making himself into the greatest detective and the finest crime fighter. But the Batman knows that one does not simply arrive to a thunderous applause. He has earned his role as judge and jury, and it is up to him to stop the Man of Steal.
Batman and Superman go head to head in the new trailer for 'Dawn of Justice'.
The first trailer for the DC crossover movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has finally arrived - and it's difficult to tell who's most formidable, despite the fact that one superhero has earned his power, and the other was gifted at birth.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is coming next year
Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.
Amy enjoys her life in the big city with her comfortable apartment, wacky friends and driven job as a reporter for a men's magazine. As a young girl, her parents sadly divorced, and her father wasted no time in drumming into her that a lifelong partnership with just one person left much to be desired. So she's certainly taking her father's words literally and seems to enjoy the company of a different man every night (though never the full night); it's a life that she has no plans to change any time soon. However, something shifts in her consciousness when she meets sports doctor Aaron Connors on whom she's been commissioned to write an article. The pair hit it off right away, but after their first night together, Amy's left wondering if ending it there is really the best thing to do. It feels weird to carry on seeing someone after she's slept with them, but at the same time, she can't remember the last time she had so much fun.

No more Baron Cohen as Mercury; we speculate on who could be a suitable replacement.
Sacha Baron Cohen AKA Ali G AKA Borat AKA... you get it, was an example of a truly fitting casting decision when it was announced he'd be playing Freddie Mercury in a biopic about the late Queen lead singer's life, with even Brian May and Roger Taylor on board to contribute a few tunes and make sure the film was headed in the right direction.
Strong-Willed Guitarist Brian May Is On Board For Queen Movie.
It's true, there's few more perfect to play iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury than British comic Sacha Baron Cohen: the looks, the eccentricity, the infectious energy and the unquestionably self-confident flair. However, the 41 year-old actor has pulled out of the planned biopic due to "creative differences," confirms Baron Cohen's manager via Variety. According to Deadline, the band were after a more PG-ready film whilst Baron Cohen pushed for a grittier tell-all R-rated version that would take a deeper look at the talented singer's life both on and off the stage.
Spikier than the average coming-of-age movie, this astute comedy-drama is packed with memorable characters and resonant situations. It's also strikingly intelligent, refusing to accept Hollywood's fake moralising as it grapples with big issues from mental health to bullying. And even better, it's funny and sexy.
Set in the early 1990s, it's the story of the painfully shy Charlie (Lerman), who plans to blend into the background as he starts high school. Scarred by an emotional event in his past, the only new friend he makes is his English teacher (Rudd). Then his sharp wit is spotted by the colourful Patrick (Miller), an anarchic gay teen who doesn't care what people think. Patrick also has a sexy stepsister, Sam (Watson), who takes a liking to Charlie as well, and soon they become inseparable friends. Well, until Charlie loses his nerve to ask Sam out and ends up in a relationship with her friend Mary Elizabeth (Whitman) instead.
After some less-than-thrilling lead roles (such as Percy Jackson or last year's Three Musketeers remake), Lerman finally comes into his own here with a sensitive, intelligent performance that's nicely underplayed. He also has terrific chemistry with Watson and Miller, whose feisty, hilarious love of life fills every scene they're in. They make such a strong trio that we are deeply moved by each rocky shift in their friendship. And Whitman brings a sparky energy to her scenes as the Buddhist punk with a bracingly honest approach to whatever happens.

Emma Watson has admitted the relief she now feels having finished filming the long running Harry Potter film franchise, admitting to The Telegraph newspaper that she enjoyed being on the set of her new film, The Perks of Being A Wallflower due to the fact that she could “experience everything I missed growing up.”
She told the paper that, having spent much of the last decade film her role as Heroine Granger, working on the new film gave her the chance to let her hair down a little and enjoy herself. She went on to admit that she isn’t quite sure “how we got away with [doing] as much as we did” in-between filming scenes for the new film, as she was involved with any number of disruptive activities whilst off set.
With all the cast for Wallflower sharing one floor of a hotel, she admitted that she and co-star Ezra Miller opened the doors in between their rooms in a bid to turn the ground floor of the hotel into something not to dissimilar to a hippy commune.

Emma Watson looks like she's firmly moved on from Harry Potter if new reviews of her latest film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower are anything to go by. The film comes out worldwide on October 3, 2012 and is a vintage tale of growing up and learning to deal with new emotions in love and loss, fear and hope and friendship. That might sound corny, but the critics are getting behind it in their numbers, meaning that it looks like it'll do well come release at the box office.
However, not all the plaudits are going Watson's way; The New York Times comments "Likable, unsurprising and principally a showcase for the pretty young cast, notably Mr. Miller, who brings texture to his witty if sensitive gay quipster." Rolling Stone meanwhile adds: "Perks deserves points for going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens. Logan Lerman excels as Charlie and Emma Watson makes a dream girl to die for, but the movie is stolen, head to tail, by Ezra Miller."
Not everyone is convinced; Time writes "It's all frightfully familiar - as if teens sitting around the campfire need to be told the same story every night - until the last 15 mins., when this Cocoa Puffs movie reveals an underlayer of arsenic." However that argument is balanced out by Salon, who comment "Fact is, much as you and I might want to protest that we were cooler than these kids, wherever and whenever we did our growing up, we probably weren't."
Emma Watson may be able to do a convincing American accent but cultural differences still wedge a gap between her and her US co-stars. In a recent interview on MTV, Emma joined The Perks of Being A Wallflower co-stars Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller the young actors joked about Emma’s confusion a few years ago, when she was asked to read a bunch of phrases in an American accent and the first phrase was ‘The Olive Garden.’ Most Americans will recognise the name of the chain of Italian restaurants but Emma was none the wiser. Her co-stars had to inform her that it was, in fact, simply a restaurant chain and not something more exciting like “a secret garden, full of olives” as Ezra suggested, jokingly: “Oils of olives and all the olives we know, they come from there.”
“We very much had to ask these guys [Miller and Lerman], and they thought it was hilarious, because I'm so naive about these things. They still haven't told me,” laughed Emma during the interview, before explaining that her pals had a pretty clear advantage when it came to understanding American culture. “These guys had had their own personal experiences, they [grew up here], and I arrived in my panicky way, kind of stressed out, and these guys had to tell me, 'It's OK, Emma, it's going to be fine.”
So far, the movie has been well-received. It looks as though The Perks of Being A Wallflower, which is released next month, could well be the breakthrough role that Watson needs to shake off the legacy of Hermione Granger, the character that she played for many years in the Harry Potter movies as a child.
Charlie is a 15-year-old high school freshman with no friends since his best friend Michael committed suicide. He is determined to turn his average life around and become someone people notice. He succeeds, at least, in making friends with two seniors; Sam and her extremely effeminate stepbrother Patrick; who let him into their lives and try to show him a good time. He also warms to his English teacher, Bill, who regularly lends him literary texts to read and absorb. Soon, his relationship with Sam gets stronger and Charlie begins to develop feelings for her that he's never before experienced. His new found friends stand by him through high school as he comes to terms with the death of his friend, his mental illness and with who he is as a person.
