I’ve only seen one Zack Snyder movie that I’d say I liked (Watchmen), and even that one with a lot of qualifiers — but I gotta admit, the man gives good trailer. And unlike any of the other films he’s made, it looks like the actors will actually talk more like normal people…
The latest SupermanMan of Steel trailer gives what seems like a good overview of what the film is about. The film opens on June 14, 2013, and stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as General Zod, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Rounding out the cast are Antje Traue, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, and Russell Crowe.
The final trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness has hit the internet, and (I think) it’s the best one yet. Heavy on the gravitas, and a few big, big plot teases. This is gonna be fun.
Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters next month, on May 17, 2013. It stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Alice Eve, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, and Bruce Greenwood.
I finally broke through my artist’s block on the Book 2 cover, and so aside from some corrections and technical mumbo-jumbo left, Multiplex: There and Back Again is DONE. Finally.
I’ll keep you posted when I have a better idea of when it will be published and available, but I’m hoping sometime this summer or early fall — things with the distributor take a little longer than if I were just self-publishing, unfortunately.
Thanks are due to my friend Gene Ha for some invaluable suggestions on this cover concept!
Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, and Guy Pearce, among others. It hits theaters on May 3.
Holy wow. This is a really interesting story — a woman named Vivian Maier worked as a nanny in Chicago for about 40 years. In that time, she took about 100,000 photos, which even people close to her never saw. At one point, she became poor and a storage locker of her stuff had been auctioned off, discovered by art historian John Maloof. He identified her eventually (she took a few self-portaits) but didn’t manage to track her down until coming across her obituary in 2009.
None of this would matter, of course, if her photographs weren’t beautiful, and they are, and they’ve become something of a hit on the art scene. Anyway. Check out the trailer, and check out more of her stuff at http://www.vivianmaier.com.
The documentary about Maloof and her work was directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel; it will be released “sometime” in 2013.
