Here’s the third – and perhaps the best – trailer for Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. Of course, if there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that Snyder cuts a hell of a great trailer… But can the movie live up to it?
(And yes, of course someone has already remixed it with the John Williams score from the ’78 Superman.)
Under the cut, R.I.P.D., Byzantium and which superhero movie is releasing a teaser trailer next week.

Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good. Clueless director Amy Heckerling is making a vampire romantic comedy. I can’t believe they found a way to actually might make me kind want to see a vampire movie. (No, Alicia Silverstone is not involved – Krysten Ritter is – but I am not one to resist a cheap Photoshop gag.) In related news Saturday Night Live’s Twilight spoof has been burning up the internet.
Oh, James Cameron. The New York Times claims that Avatar’s price tag is a cool $500 mil. Well, at least the latest trailer actually bothers to make it look like an action movie.
Mumble mumble fourth. The Los Angeles Times’ Geoff Boucher looks at the difficulty of making upcoming films for several different franchises: Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, X-Men and Pirates of the Caribbean. On that note, io9 quotes the relevant parts of a /Film podcast where X2 screenwriter Michael Dougherty describes what X3 might have been.
Shocking! ‘Archival footage’ from that cheesy alien abduction movie actually fake. People, did we learn nothing from Blair Witch?
Also… The ‘lost’ cantina scene of Star Trek; Ian McKellen and Viggo Mortensen talk The Hobbit; New poster for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

You get this. Actually, the personal stalker-shadow is the least disturbing of the two unofficial Twilight products to emerge (so to speak) this week, but it is the only one actually appropriate to slapping up on this site at 500 pixels wide. The other one is so not safe for work or direct linking, if you get what I’m saying, and I think you do. (via)

So maybe it only feels like Entertainment Weekly has been putting Robert Pattinson’s mug on every other cover, and we’ve heartily pointed and laughed at the crazy fans and candy hearts and whatnot. But I think this one takes us down into the very bowels of corporate opportunism. (more…)

A little something for those of us who’d like to see more staking with the stalking.
UPDATE: OH BARBIE NO.

Vampires, Zombies and… Well, I can’t give away the last one without spoiling the book, but let’s just say it fits. Naturally Chadthulhu had to make an appearance. (more…)

First Airbender pics are here. If you squint you can see Aang’s tattoo, but Zuko’s scar (and ponytail) seem MIA. Sigh.
Seriously, what if it sucks? Fanboys to head to Sydney for a sequel? Nice idea, but I’m not holding my breath.
You like Harry Potter, little fan? Have some Half-Blood Prince TV spots. Or perhaps a clip?
He’s John Connor. JOHN CONNOR! Terminator Salvation has already taken in $3 million, despite a a steady stream of bad reviews.
Obligatory Twilight news. Kristen Stewart looks thrilled to be in the New Moon poster. Meanwhile, poor Robert Pattinson confirms they’ll be taking the movies all the way through Breaking Dawn. I for one can’t wait to see how they handle the… Well, you know.

This was actually all over the internets a few months ago, but Paula helpfully reminded me of it today. Sure to be a huge hit at this year’s Dragon*Con and other places where people who get the joke will congregate, the shirt is available for both men and women. Wear it hoping that the Twilighters actually have a sense of humor offline.
