In the comic-book world, he is sometimes derided as "the big blue Boy Scout."
How is director Zack Snyder's take on Superman in "Man of Steel" any different from earlier screen versions? After all, Christopher Reeve created an iconic figure in Richard Donner's 1978 classic (and sequels), while Brandon Routh made an attempt in Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" in 2006. But as composer Hans Zimmer previously hinted to CNN, this Kal-El is a little more spiritual.
Being Superman isn't as simple as it once was. Seventy-five years ago, when the Kryptonian caped--crusader first appeared on the cover of Action Comics #1, hoisting a car over his head, he not only stood for truth, justice, and the American way, he also had a virtual monopoly on the men-in-tights genre. Lately, though, that field has gotten awfully crowded. The local multiplex is lousy with celluloid crime fighters. So what turf is left for good old Clark Kent? That's the nagging question that director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel tries — and ultimately fails — to answer.
Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish are ending their 19-year marriage, a statement from the singer's publicist said Thursday.
"True Blood" has expanded from the story of the people -- and vampires -- of Bon Temps to a saga about how supernatural beings can exist in the modern world.
The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola's acerbically arresting fifth feature, is a tasty contradiction: a clear-eyed, empathetic look at people the movie doesn't even pretend you can like. It's a true-life drama of American youth culture gone mad. Based on a 2010 Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, the film tells the story of a pack of L.A. teenagers (four girls and one boy) who in 2008 began to break into the homes of their celebrity idols (like Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson) to steal their clothes, shoes, and jewelry. We see them troll the Web to find out which stars are going to be out of town, and they then sneak in easily, climbing over security fences. Once inside, they basically go shopping. They rifle through designer dresses, find roomfuls of necklaces, and get to Valhalla when they reach the sacred chamber where Paris Hilton keeps her shoes.
It's hard out there for a plus-sized-and-proud actress like Melissa McCarthy — especially in a world where svelte Jennifer Lawrence considers herself "obese" by Hollywood standards. But McCarthy has built a career even the tiniest starlet should envy — one that's included an Emmy (and another nomination), an Oscar nod, and roles in two $100 million-plus-grossing comedies in the past two years.
In 1995, the singer-songwriter — and wonderful cartoonist — Peter Blegvad released a song later made semi-famous when a cover version by Loudon Wainwright III was featured on the soundtrack for Judd Apatow's film "Knocked Up." The song, "Daughter," is as sweet and true as any song ever written by a parent to a child, and manages to capture in relatively few words the intense, tender, exasperating, fraught and — with luck — loving relationships that dads and their female progeny enjoy -- and sometimes merely endure.
A top executive at AEG Live's parent company wondered days before Michael Jackson's death if the singer's problems were bad enough to warrant a straitjacket.
When "Breaking Bad" left off last summer, tenacious DEA agent Hank Schrader (Dean Norris) was hot on the trail — and, er, toilet — of meth maker Walter White (Bryan Cranston). And when the revered drama returns with the second half of season 5 (beginning Aug. 11 on AMC), what should we brace for? Among other things, maybe a bit of self-reflection from the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who transformed himself into a lethal drug kingpin with the help of high school dropout/partner Jesse (Aaron Paul).
A drunk, despondent and paralyzed Michael Jackson evolved into a confident superstar only as he stepped on stage to announce his comeback, a promoter testified.

There are Hollywood romances, and then there are superstar romances, and no superstar romance ever managed to cram as much scandal, star power and unabashed sexual attraction into one gaudy package as the affair, marriage, divorce, second marriage and second divorce of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Their tumultuous liaison — before the marriages and divorces — famously began in 1962 on the set of the colossally over-budget epic, 'Cleopatra'. Fodder for gossip columns and tabloids, all these years later their affair remains the gold standard for famous folks behaving badly on movie sets. (Of course, their behavior seems downright quaint, and even circumspect, compared to the squalid hijinks of many of today's celebs.)

The sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" has hit a road block. The in-development follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy was in the works at New Line Cinema, but New Line's parent company, Warner Bros., has dropped the project, EW confirmed Tuesday. THR first reported the news.

With fans still reeling from last Sunday's Red Wedding episode, "The Rains of Castamere," the third season of "Game of Thrones" comes to a close this weekend, and no one is waiting with more bated breath for that than Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer on the HBO program. "Even though I've read all the scripts, I wasn't around when they shot all of it," he reminded CNN. "So one of the things that's great about this show is that I can actually watch it and enjoy it, despite knowing what's going to happen."
In the rude, antic, and brazenly funny "Wedding Crashers" (2005), Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn played overgrown arrested-development cases who won us over from their very first whopping lie onward. At the time, the two actors were already in their mid-30s, but they were still able to mount a bad-boy generational assault against all things civil and decent. "The Internship" reunites Wilson, with his smarm-that-looks-like-sweetness (or is it the other way around?), and Vaughn, with his disaffected fast patter. The audience is still rooting for them — only this time the two are playing the older, stodgy guys.
Millions of "Game of Thrones" fans are feeling sadness, outrage, and, sure, some perverse excitement after watching Sunday's episode titled "The Rains of Castamere." But for Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, such reactions to "The Red Wedding" are nothing new. Martin has been receiving exclamatory emails about the disastrous Tully-Frey union for more than a decade, ever since he published his Song of Ice and Fire saga's third novel, A Storm of Swords. Below, the author reveals why Robb had to die, gives his reaction to upset readers and spills the scene's horrifying real-life inspiration.

Saturday, June 1, marks Marilyn Monroe's 87th birthday. Or rather, it marks the 87th anniversary of her birth. It's difficult, after all, to envision what an 87th birthday might look and feel like for someone who died more than a half-century ago, when she was just 36 years old.
Will Smith is back at the movies this weekend with another potential summer blockbuster, "After Earth."
I've lost count, but "After Earth" seems like it must be the fourth post-apocalyptic thriller this month. The movie teams Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith, and it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, the former maestro-huckster of the twist ending. But Shyamalan's star has fallen, and he has become a glorified gun for hire. The movie takes off from a concept as basic as a videogame, and it sticks to that concept, without surprise.
The phrase most spoken by AEG Live's co-CEO during his testimony in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial was: "I don't recall."

Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in "Heroes," a couple of memorable roles on "American Horror Story," and, of course, Spock in the last two "Star Trek" movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, "logical." Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor's financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor's Before the Door company — the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson — and exec produced Chandor's Robert Redford-starring "All Is Lost," which just screened at Cannes.
AEG Live co-CEO Paul Gongaware, whose career as a concert promoter started with Elvis Presley's last tour, testified Tuesday about Michael Jackson's final days.
1) Cannes, where arts meet politics. By awarding the Palme d'Or to Abdelatiff Kechiche's three hour long Sapphic love story, "Blue is the Warmest Colour," Steven Spielberg, president of the Cannes jury, may not have wanted to make a political point, as he claimed in the post-awards news conference, but the fact is that he did just that. As France became a week ago the ninth European country (and 14th in the world), to legalize same-sex marriage, and at the very moment as a 250,000 strong right-wing march was demonstrating in the streets of Paris against it, the Cannes film festival was awarding the highest accolade in world cinema to a lesbian love story. France's younger generation, as embodied by 18-year-old Adèle, is about to show its elders that love can take many shapes.
