Though the early buzz is so good they're already talking about a sequel, 'Man of Steel' has been -- all things -- pretty low key with its marketing... or at least low key for one of the summer's biggest movies. But now there's a new image of Henry Cavill's Superman with Amy Adams' Lois Lane.
Though 2012's awards season has only recently come to an end, that doesn't mean filmmakers and studios aren't already plotting 2013's Oscar campaign. And it looks like David O. Russell wants to win a little gold statue as -- for the third time in four years -- he's got a new film scheduled to come out at the end of the year.
"Did you ever think about changing your name to Christoph Breakdance?" So says Zach Galifianakis to Oscar-nominee Christoph Waltz in the triumphant return of the Funny or Die series "Between Two Ferns." Joining Zach in this special 2013 Oscar mega-edition are nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams.
Amy Adams first caught our eye with her small roles in 'Catch Me If You Can' and 'The Office,' before moving on to make it big as Giselle in 'Enchanted' and more recently getting a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nom for 'The Master.' In today's Way Back When, we take a look at Amy Adams before she became the famously adorable actress we all know and love.
Amy Adams is likely on her way to a fourth Oscar nomination for her intense work in Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master'; actually, it could end up being her first (overdue) win. But if she doesn't bring home a statue that evening, she'll probably get another shot during the 2014 Oscars, as the actress is set to play Janis Joplin for 'Precious' director Lee Daniels. And that simply sounds like gold to us.
My wife doesn't follow movie news and is impervious to advertising. "What is this, a baseball movie?" she asked as we settled in for 'Trouble with the Curve.' "Kinda," I said. "Clint's a gruff baseball scout, out on the road with his estranged daughter." "Uh-oh," she chimed as the lights dimmed. "Life lessons!"
Life lessons indeed, and they come at you with the subtlety of an aluminum bat cranking a deep line drive. Clint, craggier than ever, begins each day arguing with his prostate, eating junk food and rooting through a stack of papers reporting high school and college score results. "He's the last scout in the majors who doesn't use a computer!" they muse at the Braves' home office. Nasty, conniving Matthew Lillard means it in a bad way, while John Goodman looks fondly upon Clint's old fashioned ways.
