Check It Out: Teaser Trailer for SUPERMAN RETURNS

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the teaser trailer for SUPERMAN RETURNS. Catch a glimpse of Lois Lane and the Man of Steel himself, but no sight of Lex Luthor yet. But is that the trademark black curly forelock? Why, yes it is.

Jon Stewart Loves Oscar!

Daily Show fans rejoice: Jon Stewart has been picked to host the Oscars this year! CBS News reports that the fake-news anchor has agreed to helm the awards ceremony. I think we can count on this being one of the most fun Oscar broadcasts ever. Last year, the honors went to Chris Rock. They say Chris Rock's controversial, but my Mom loves him. My Mom is cool, though.

Oh la la!

C'est le teaser for MARIE ANTOINETTE, Sofia Coppola's much anticipated follow-up to LOST IN TRANSLATION, which stars Kirsten Dunst as the queen famous both for her love of cake and close relationship with a guillotine. That's really Versailles and that's really New Order playing over the lush shots.

Wait a second...

Could AMERICAN DREAMZ be making fun of "American Idol"? And could that Cheeto-munching president be a little dig at Bush? Nah. But I loved ABOUT A BOY, the Weitz brothers movie with Hugh Grant playing a jerk, so this looks pretty promising.

Trailer for FLIGHT 93

Director Paul Greengrass (BLOODY SUNDAY, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY) will have made the first studio film about September 11, 2001, when his film FLIGHT 93 opens this April. This trailer provides a bare glimpse of what he has in store for viewers. Personally, I had a difficult time watching this trailer. What do you think, readers: is it too early for movies about 9/11?

Virginia Madsen Up for Role Opposite Jim Carrey

Virginia Madsen, an Oscar nominee last year for SIDEWAYS, is currently in talks to star opposite Jim Carrey as his wife in THE NUMBER 23, a thriller directed by Joel Schumacher. Carrey's character discovers a book that seems to eerily parallel his own life, and he grows more and more obsessed with the number 23. (This number fixation sounds a bit like "Lost," doesn't it?) This story from Entertainment Weekly has more details.

Word From the Sundance Film Festival

New York Times film critic A.O. Scott reports from the snowy environs of Park City, Utah on the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. Hey, I even have a tangential connection to the party this year: Ellen Ripstein, a former co-worker of mine, is there because she's featured in Wordplay, a documentary on crossword puzzles. Ellen is basically the queen of the crossword puzzle word. Don't even try to challenge her.

More From Sundance

Hold on to your hats, because here's some shocking news. Apparently, movie studios want to make money. No! This article from the New York Times speculates that a new era of independent movies is opening up, this one focusing on small movies that make big bucks (think GARDEN STATE, SIDEWAYS, and MAD HOT BALLROOM).

Tim Malcolm is a news editor searching for any sequels, remakes and Tom Sizemore articles. He spends hours a week (more then he wants to admit) searching the web for the most entertaining and accurate sources to save you time.
