Lindsay Silveira has put together these two posters for the upcoming ’Batman Vs. Superman’ movie. A month or so back, Warner Bros. Pictures ended weeks of speculation by announcing that Ben Affleck has been cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Zack Snyder’s still untitled ‘Batman/Superman’ sequel to this past summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ Affleck and Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project – bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in ‘Man of Steel.’ The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17th, 2015.

Zack Snyder re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster ‘Man of Steel,’ which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together. Ben Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite ‘Man of Steel’ stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Chloë Grace Moretz & Julianne Moore Highlighted In New Clip From ‘Carrie’: “Stop Hurting Yourself!”

carrie chloe grace moretz julianne moore 20131 Chloë Grace Moretz & Julianne Moore Highlighted In New Clip From ‘Carrie’: Stop Hurting Yourself!

Sony Pictures has unleashed this latest clip from the upcoming take on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, ‘Carrie.’ The film tells the story of a shy high school student (Chloë Grace Moretz) who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother (Julianne Moore), and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. The likes of Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Megan Hilty, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort, Portia Doubleday and Ivan Hoey Jr co-star alongside Moretz and Moore. The Kimberly Peirce-directed (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) film is set for a October 18th release in the US and a November 29th bow in the UK. The official synopsis for ‘Carrie’ is as follows.

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
