Russell Crowe gave Amy Adams a big bear hug when they attended a photocall for their new film, Man of Steel, at the Taormina Film Fest in Taormina, Italy, today. They were joined by their co-star Henry Cavill as the group posed for photos against the idyllic countryside. The three actors have been hard at work promoting their film, which hits cineams in Australia on June 27. They premiered Man of Steel in NYC on Monday and brought the project to London on Wednesday. While in England, the cast battled with the rain, which nearly soaked a Valentino-clad Amy. Luckily, an assistant covered her up with an umbrella, which she giggled about while taking photos. Before the cast headed over to Italy, they taped an interview for The Graham Norton Show, which aired in the UK on Friday.
Man of Steel stars hit the black carpet for their film's big NYC premiere today. Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane in the superhero movie, had her fiancé Darren Le Gallo by her side for the cameras as she posed in a sexy cut-out gown. Superman himself, Henry Cavill, got serious in a grey suit on his way into the screening while Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner were also on hand. The cast made their way to the East Coast after popping up in LA on Saturday night for the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards, where Amy, Henry, Russell and director Zach Snyder picked up the honour for most anticipated movie of the year. Fans don't have much longer to wait since the latest Superman instalment hits Australian cinemas on June 27, and in the run up to the release Amy and Henry have been busy with press including their recent spread in Interview's June/July issue.
It has just been announced that Brad Pitt will be travelling to Australia to attend a local premiere of his new movie World War Z! The zombie thriller will hold its Sydney red carpet event on June 9 with the main man present on the scene ahead of its June 20 national release.
June will see another Hollywood heartthrob making his way Down Under — on the weekend it was confirmed that new Superman Henry Cavill will be on hand for the June 24 Sydney premiere of Man of Steel, which is released on June 27.
The excitement follows the return of The Great Gatsby cast at next week’s Australian premiere on May 22. And for TV fans, Revenge’s Gabriel Mann, who plays billionaire Nolan Ross, will also be coming this month for a publicity tour.
Director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is already one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, and the latest trailer makes me even more excited for it. The cryptic first preview finds Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill) struggling with his identity and his place in the world, and while this new one is no less existential, it does show a lot more of the supporting cast. We see Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Superman's real father, in the midst of his planet's destruction, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Clark's protective adoptive parents, Michael Shannon in action as villain General Zod, and Amy Adams as intrepid reporter Lois Lane.
Though I was initially skeptical of Adams as Lois, the interaction between her and Superman in the last moments of the trailer is giving me a lot more faith in her casting. I'm also loving the dark but hopeful tone of the movie, which could be a refreshing change of pace from the many other Superman films we've seen before. Man of Steel opens June 27 in Australia, but until then, watch the new trailer after the jump.
Finally! After a teaser for the latest Superman instalment, a full trailer for Man of Steel is here. In this longer look, it's clear that director Zack Snyder's Superman may be the most psychologically burdened version of the icon so far. We meet Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) as a young boy who's perplexed by his superhuman abilities, which aren't helped when his human father (Kevin Costner) advises him to keep that side of himself hidden after he saves a school bus full of classmates. Fast-forward to him as an introspective adult working through his issues (made apparent by his beard and water meditation). He obviously has a way to go before he becomes the flying, red-and-blue suited hero we see by the end of the trailer.
There's so much to see in this preview, like Superman being hauled off in handcuffs (like in the poster), as well as famous characters, though those glimpses are pretty brief. Still, it's exciting to see Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, and Michael Shannon as villain General Zod. We still have to wait until next June to see the movie, but you can take a look at the new Superman in action after the jump.
If you didn't know you were watching the teaser for the new Superman movie, you probably wouldn't figure it out until the very end of the trailer for Man of Steel. That's because the first preview of the movie doesn't exactly look like a superhero movie: we see a lot of laundry flapping in the breeze and a scruffy Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) doing work aboard a fishing boat. We hear the voice of Kevin Costner (Clark's adoptive father) saying that he's going to "change the world." It almost seems like an indie movie until the big payoff at the end: we see Superman fly!
Suffice it to say, I'm going to need to see a lot more footage from this movie before making a decision about how I feel about it, but this teaser is encouraging. It looks like director Zack Snyder is steering away from the cartoonish comic book movies of the past and closer to darker, grittier takes like Batman Begins. The film doesn't hit cinemas until Jun. 13, 2013, so there's plenty of time to watch the teaser again and again when you keep reading.
We've just said goodbye to an exciting 2011, and now it's time to look forward to the next 12 months! With another year comes a handful of hot actors whose stars are on the rise. There are some up-and-comers we're particularly excited to follow. Max Irons and Damon Wayans Jr. learned the tricks of the trade from their famous fathers Jeremy and Damon, while Chris Pratt starred opposite another famous dad, Brad Pitt, in Moneyball. Michael Fassbender received critical acclaim for his recent work, and nude scenes, in Shame, and Henry Cavill is sure to captivate audiences with his acting chops and six-pack in Man of Steel. British imports Dominic Cooper and Sam Claflin are noteworthy leading men, while Canadian Suits star Patrick Adams just picked up a SAG nomination for his small screen role. So, tell us — which guy do you want to see more of this year?
Kellan Lutz arrived on the red carpet at his Immortals premiere in LA last night holding hands with his girlfriend, actress Sharni Vinson. Kellan and Sharni reportedly started dating back in July, and weren't shy about showing some PDA last night, sneaking in a kiss as they arrived. The duo were on hand to join Kellan's co-stars, including Sharni's former Home and Away co-star Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, who had boyfriend Dev Patel on hand, Henry Cavill and Stephen Dorff for the big debut at Nokia Live, which drew a large crowd of fans and spectators.

Well, this is a big step up from that Entertainment Weekly cover: Warner Bros. has just released the very first official photo of Henry Cavill from Superman: Man of Steel. Though it's a little dark, it's clear the "steel" theme is in full effect here, and Superman's suit looks closer to that of Andrew Garfield's new Spidey costume than the original tights and undies combo. Still, there's no denying Cavill's dashing superhero looks — or those huge muscles. How do you feel about it?
