I don't know how I missed the original Red movie, but I'm definitely going to try to see it before the sequel comes out in July. The original cast is back, along with Sir Anthony Hopkins and, "surprisingly", he's playing a crazy person.
He's usually best when he's a little kra kra...
Plus, you really can't go wrong with anything starring Helen Mirren.
Looks like the queen gets to kick more ass in this one too.

Surgery a success! Dr repaired 3 hernial tears (fun pain). Superman is on the mend.. #WeFallWeRise twitter.com/TheRock/status…
— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 23, 2013
Dwayne Johnson seems to be recovering just fine after his hernia surgery yesterday.
If I was the doctor, I'd be especially certain that everything went very well, just to avoid a "Hulk SMASH!" scenario if it didn't.

The first photos of Jamie Foxx playing Electro from the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequel, currently filming, hit the Internets this week...
I don't know anything about the character, but the facial varicose veins should probably be looked at by a professional.
There must be an emollient on the market that could fix those right up.

Warner Bros. just released a new full trailer for Man of Steel and it's looking like it's gonna be REALLY good.
This one finally shows us some of the action and plot...
Shots of Krypton before baby Supes is sent away...
Shots of his stylishly arched Fortress of Solitude...
And, apparently, Henry Cavill spends a significant amount of time saving folks while unshaven and shirtless before he eventually finds a razor and his costume...
As Alicia Keys might say....that boy is on fire.
He'll begin heating up the box office on June 14th.

A new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer was released today and, like the others, it just makes the movie look even better than the previous teaser trailers did.
If this is anywhere near as good as the previous Star Trek movie, I'm going to be very pleased.
Also, a new series of character posters were released this week as well.
AND...the Star Trek issue of Empire Magazine is about to hit newsstands soon.
I am so excited that I think I just threw up a little bit...in the back of my pants.

Very sad news over the weekend...
Jonathan Winters, the wildly inventive actor and comedian who appeared in such films as "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and "The Loved One" and played Robin Williams' son on the TV show "Mork & Mindy," has died. He was 87.
Though he never had a breakout starring role, over the years his appearances on TV shows made him a beloved figure in the entertainment world. He was a favorite guest on "The Tonight Show" -- particularly in the early '60s when Jack Paar hosted it -- and turned up on the game show "The Hollywood Squares," Dean Martin's celebrity roasts and countless variety shows.
He told the Archive of American Television about the creation of his character Maude Frickert, the sarcastic old lady, who came from a relative he had. "I decided, having seen a lot of older people, that many of them are shelved -- put in retirement homes to rot," he said. "I decided to (be) a hip old lady" -- one who had a wicked sense of humor, the kind of person who was married 12 times and cracked a whip in a ward of cardiac patients.
He had a regular role on the final season of "Mork & Mindy", putting him together with Williams, who played the space visitor Mork from Ork. Winters played Mearth, Mork's son, who -- having hatched from a giant egg -- was the size of an adult but had the mind of a child.
I remember him from numerous talk show appearances and, of course, from Mork and Mindy (which I never missed). He was a very funny man...very quick-witted.
He will be missed.

Entertainment Weekly is featuring the upcoming Man of Steel movie on it's upcoming "Summer Movie Preview" issue and has featured a variety of new photos.
First good look at the villain, Zod.
He looks just a "little" bit more intimidating than the original Zod and his pleather v-neck pantsuit (although that is kind of scary in its own way).
His earth parents, the Kents.
It also appears that Diane Lane is still popular with the kids these days, judging by some of the comments I've seen on SuperheroHype...
Triad petah − Diane Lane has always been a hottie IMO. She and Josh Brolin have recently separated too, so she's available!
I thought this fan's response to that was hilarious...
Buck Triad − And I'm sure she's looking for someone who posts on Superhero hype to live out all her depraved fantasies with (don't worry, I tell myself that too).
At least the kids give each other a reality check sometimes.
Russell Crowe as his Kryptonian father, Jor-El.
Laurence Fishburn and Amy Adams as Perry White and Lois Lane.
Zod's female partner in crime.
Here is the cool trailer, if you haven't already seen it (I love the haunting music!)...
Also, there is great debate amongst the Super-fans about the changes in Superman's costume (no red undies and slightly different shades of red and blue).
It's very similar to all the hoopla surrounding the changes that were made to Wonder Woman's costume when the failed TV pilot was shot.
One fan was so bothered by the changes that he created this to show what needed to be done to make things right...
Who says that people who still live with their parents don't have a sense of humor?
Man of Steel comes out June 14th.

Matt Damon has another movie, Behind The Candelabra: The Secret Life of Liberace, coming out on HBO May 26th. It looks like he'll mainly be "battling" Michael Douglas' sparkly capes.
Here is the latest trailer for it...
It looks like Matt also has a wide-variety of costume changes throughout the film...
Plus there are a couple of other good actors in it as well...
Debbie Reynolds playing his mother...
And Rob Lowe playing his creepy-looking plastic surgeon.
It looks like Madame Tussauds might be missing one of her wax figures.
