It's official: Affleck's Dark Knight will take on Cavill's Man of Steel. Also, the One Direction movie premieres, The Mortal Instruments are released, and a trio of trailers promise tears, laughs and some spectacular Alaskan scenery...
This week's biggest story is that Ben Affleck will play Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, opposite Henry Cavill's Clark Kent (aka Superman). There's no word on the plot or the title of the new film, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2015. Word has it that the two superheroes will be at odds with each other, setting up some big battles between them. Read all about the epic prospect here.
On Tuesday night, London hosted the world premiere of the new One Direction movie This Is Us, and the screams of pre-pubescent girls could be heard miles away from Leicester Square as the boy band, their manager Simon Cowell and a range of starry guests turned up to walk the red carpet. The film opens next week and you can look at photos from the event here.
Orser is playing with the word mourning, but can he portray it?
Leland Orser makes his directorial debut – and stars – in Morning, a film that focuses on the inner torment of two parents after their child dies. This is five days in the life of Alice (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and Mark (Orser) as they attempt to deal with death and forge love once more.
Orser directs for the first time in Morning
Mark’s grief leads him to separation – he cannot stand to be around his wife any more. The opening scene in the trailer sees him sitting in an empty pool -presumably because of the accidental drowning death of their child - on his own. An elderly woman (his mother?) attempts to console him, or at least shelter him from the rain.
Alice and Mark are a married couple who are desperately struggling to come to terms with the catastrophic death of their child. While their friends tiptoe around them trying to offer their own advice and support, the couple find themselves unable to support each other as Mark cannot bear to be around his wife anymore. Meanwhile, Alice ends up at the office of grief counsellor Dr. Goodman who believes that fate has led them together for a reason and convinces her to look at her own life differently. They both go through feelings of devastation, intense rage and ultimately soul-destroying heartbreak that threatens not only the future of their relationship, but also their own lives. Will this once idyllic couple successfully find each other again? And, with that, find the strength to overcome the biggest tragedy of their lives?

From the first notes of The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" ringing under an otherworldly opening credit sequence, Big Love hints at a combination of somber connection and sincere personal adoration. At the center is Bill Henrickson (Bill Pullman), an ambitious home superstore owner who lives a clean, Utah Mormon life... along with his three wives and gaggle of kids.

Brother's Keeper -- not the 1992 documentary about a hillbilly who murders his brother -- is a ridiculously stupid story about a detective who tries to protect her brother despite the fact that he's a serial killer. Standard thriller ensues.

Sure, hubby puts those super-tight abs and intimidating biceps front-and-center. But he's also forced to put Madonna's acting ability up there as well, and the awful truth is that Madonna is an average actress at best. Being as naturally theatrical as she is (and that's a compliment), she excels at stagy roles, as in Evita, but when it comes to the everyday, she comes across as rather limp.

Yes he can! Mickey Blue Eyes, against all odds, is nothing short of fall-down funny - on par with Notting Hill, South Park, and Austin Powers 2 as one of the best comedies of the summer.

Figgis, who earned a Best Director Oscar nomination for Leaving Las Vegas in 1996, appears to have gone a little funny in the head last year with his inexplicable and nearly dialogue-free The Loss of Sexual Innocence. Now he's fully gone off the deep end with what may be the most ambitious experiment ever: Time Code.

"Mickey Blue Eyes" is one of those movies that wouldn't last 20 minutes if the main character wasn't a certifiable moron.
A comedy of the uncomfortable, it's predicated on Hugh Grant, playing an tentative, English, auction house proprietor in New York, allowing himself to become embroiled in the mob when he unknowingly proposes to a mafia princess (Jeanne Tripplehorn).
She declines, crying her eyes out and explaining her background and the family she's tried to put behind her. Romantically, he says it doesn't matter. She exacts one promise from him: That he won't agree to do any favors for her family and won't accept any, either. "That's how they get you," she says. "Then you'll be one of them."
