A trailer for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel just finished playing at San Diego Comic-Con, and a description of the footage is now online – including Smallville, Zod and a surprising lack of slow-mo!

Coming Soon were live blogging the event, and shared a detailed description along with their thoughts on what was shown.

We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.

This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past

An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.

We hear Russell Crowe’s voice talking about children being inspired to greater things

It sounds like it’s cut with Kevin Costner’s voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be

We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there

Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end

We’re jumping back and forth through time periods

Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids

The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off

“People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” says Costner

We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They’re standing right in front of one another, but I think it’s a holographic projection (though it looks live)

We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain

There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building

A single flash of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane
One flash has Superman (in costume) — seemingly in handcuffs — being led down a hallway by a security force

We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face

There’s a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire

Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he’s been thrown.

I’m not great at describing music, but it’s decidedly more somber than Williams’s score.

The whole look of it has a very dark, autumny feel to it all.

There’s a major discussion in the narration about the world turning against Superman because they don’t trust him if he ever appears.

There’s a flash of Zod, but literally so fast you just see his face.

Apparently someone witnessed young Clark as a child saving the bus with his powers.

None of the trademark Snyder shots in the trailer. No slo-mo or shuttery frames

Are you excited for the trailer which will play in front of The Dark Knight Rises next week?

Chris Pratt is currently on a press tour for Passengers. Jennifer Lawrence may or may not be there too.

Passengers, the new sci-fi epic starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, comes out later this month. The promo tour has kicked off in Europe, with the two stars on hand to answer all our questions.

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.

Not going to lie — we’re almost as excited for the press interview videos as we are for the movie itself!

‘Passengers’ hits cinemas on December 21

J.K. Rowling and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have just announced that the play is coming to the United States.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will open on Broadway in Spring 2018 at The Lyric Theatre, which is currently home to Cirque Du Soleil’s Paramour show.

An exact Cursed Child Broadway opening date has not been set, but theater owner ATG “plans a multi-million dollar renovation to completely transform, remodel and reconfigure the 1,900 seat theatre and turn it into a scaled down, more intimate playhouse, with approximately 1,500 seats.”

An exact Cursed Child Broadway opening date has not been set, but theater owner ATG “plans a multi-million dollar renovation to completely transform, remodel and reconfigure the 1,900 seat theatre and turn it into a scaled down, more intimate playhouse, with approximately 1,500 seats.”

While the script book hasn’t been well-received by fans, attendees of The Cursed Child show in London (including this writer) have adored the two-part event. The magic, characters, humor, and special effects are all remarkable and definitely worth seeing live.

The story follows Harry, Ron, Hermione, and their children 19 years after the events of Deathly Hallows as dark forces return to the Wizarding World.

Here’s the inside of ‘The Cursed Child’s’ Broadway theater

Said producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said in a press release, “We are thrilled about ATG’s ambitious plans which will provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a unique theatre space tailored to the specific needs of the production over the play’s two parts.”

“The remodeled Lyric will include a smaller auditorium redesigned to the specifications of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child team, as well as an adapted proscenium and stage that can house designer Christine Jones’ glorious set without swamping or compromising director John Tiffany’s brilliant staging. The spacious front of house environment will also be transformed to optimize the atmosphere and audience experience.

“But above all, ATG’s plans will provide Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with a bespoke home that will be intimate enough for a drama, yet big enough for us to deliver on our commitment to provide audiences with access to low priced tickets throughout the auditorium.”

J.K. Rowling added, “I’m delighted we are one step closer in bringing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to Broadway and very excited by the proposed plans.”

‘Cursed Child’ Broadway ticket on sale date.

The Cursed Child Broadway ticket on sale date was not announced today. In the U.K. tickets went on sale roughly eight months in advance, so maybe they’ll be on sale by this time in 2017.

The West End production put 60,000 tickets on sale in early November, keeping the show running through February 2018.
