Man of Steel
Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe
Warner Bros. Pictures
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. Pictures released the fourth official trailer for the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced Superman adaptation, Man of Steel.
The trailer mainly plays out like a message from General Zod (Michael Shannon), asking people to capture Superman, threatening that he will destroy the Earth, if otherwise. The message is similar to the one transmitted by the Mandarin in the recently released Iron Man 3.
Now, here is what to expect in the movie:
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel opens in American theaters on 14th June 2013.
Sony Pictures has released a brand new poster for The Smurfs 2, the upcoming sequel to the 2011 animated movie of the same name.
The new poster features Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry in the movie) striking a pose while being photobombed by Hackus (voiced by J.B. Smoove), who is either doing bunny ears behind her or showing the “number 2” sign.
Here is the synopsis for the movie:
The evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world¹s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
Also starring Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Sofia Vergara, The Smurfs 2 will open in American theaters on 31st July 2013. The trailer for the movie can be viewed here.
Heads up, horror fans!
A new poster for the upcoming James Wan-directed horror movie, The Conjuring, dropped on the movie’s Facebook page recently.
While the last poster featured an invisible hanging person, this poster gets even creepier with a shot of a little girl sitting in a rocking chair, holding a creepy-looking doll that looks so much the one from the Dead Silence poster.
Here is the synopsis for the movie:
Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
Based on actual case files from paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, The Conjuring stars Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Lily Taylor, and is set to scare viewers starting 19th July 2013. The trailer can be seen here.

It’s definitely a #beautiful video for a #beautiful song!
The official music video for Mariah Carey’s latest single, “#Beautiful”, featuring Miguel, has dropped. The video made its premiere on American Idol earlier.
In the video, the “We Belong Together” singer is shown riding a motorcycle with the “Adorn” singer, and flaunting poses in front of him while he’s sitting on a red retro car parked inside a barn full of chandeliers. Also, there are shots of her looking hot while sitting in a motorcycle.
Live It Up
Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull
Jennifer Lopez has released a brand new single from her upcoming album, titled “Live It Up”. The song is her third collaboration with rapper Pitbull, the others being “On The Floor” and “Dance Again”.
The song, which is an electropop/dance song produced by RedOne, has lyrics that talk about flirting someone on the verses, while the lyrics in the chorus talk about living life to the fullest. Following every chorus is a sudden bass drop where Pitbull says, “Make love, don’t fight, let’s f*** tonight”, and a very fist-pumping, house-inspired breakdown.
