Here's a shocker. The new logo for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie, "Man Of Steel" looks...wait for it...just like the iconic Superman "S." You know, the same one that's been on the iconic superhero's chest since his inception in 1932 (albeit, somewhat modified over the years)? Ok, it's slightly different.

Since it seems like Brian De Palma has almost, sort-of, maybe, nearly been attached to dozens of projects over the past decade, anytime actual physical evidence surfaces of him making a movie, it’s reason for celebration. It’s enough to make you want to scream, “It’s really happening!” at the top of your lungs, annoying your coworkers and friends. But that’s what we just did when we saw these brand new behind-the-scenes set photos of Rachel McAdams, wearing a lovely pink number, on the set of De Palma’s new thriller “Passion."

If 2011 was the year when big studios wizened up and shelved big expensive tent poles, then 2012 is the year that those same studios are cutting costs to resurrect a handful of the projects including “Wedding Crashers” helmer David Dobkin’s “Arthur & Lancelot.” While that project kicked back to life when actor Colin Farrell entered into talks with Warner Bros. to take the lead in the film, it looks as if things may become a little grim for the production all over again.

Hey y'all! How 'bout those "Hunger Games," huh? Obviously, everyone and their mom went last weekend to the child murder games, and we'll see if it has legs to keep going (we think it does), so if you have to catch up on that one, it is in theaters this weekend! If you already saw it, never fear, there are still creepy kid movies to be found in "Bully" and "Womb" (and "Mirror Mirror" does that count?) Fun! And if not, blockbuster season is officially open with "Wrath of the Titans." CGI-y! And for a nice change of pace, another entry in the classic hockey comedy canon, "Goon" hits U.S. theaters this weekend too. Won't you hit the ice with us?

There are a lot of things we want to know about Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives," and we'll get to that movie in a moment, but first we need to address the image above. The picture has been one that has captivated and amused the Playlist staff if only because we have no idea what on Earth Refn is wearing around his waist or why. Well, mystery solved. "I like to wear that thing on set. It is as if it helps keep my energy," he recently told Liberation. In fact, it's a look he wears everyday to the set, and his wife reveals that the crew on her husband's last movie paid their respects to the director saying, "On Halloween, on the set of 'Drive,' the 75 people on the team all wore white shirts, glasses and a blanket around their waist. It was hilarious."

The Russo Brothers, George Nolfi & F. Gary Gray Frontrunners To Direct 'Captain America 2'

Guessing who Marvel are going to pick to direct their movies is increasingly becoming a fool's errand. We could see why Jon Favreau and Louis Leterrier were picked to helm "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk." But since that opening salvo, they've mostly shied away from A-list names and those experienced with action, with names like Kenneth Branagh, Joss Whedon and Shane Black being picked out to helm "Thor," "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 3."

Ken Loach To Direct Post-WWII Doc 'Spirit of 45' Plus New Photos From His Upcoming 'The Angels Share'

Director Ken Loach has always strived for realism in his socially-conscious films, so it's no surprise that his next project is a documentary about socialism. Enjoying the most prolific decade of his long career, the 75-year-old director's last film, the 2010 drama-thriller "Route Irish," examined the corruption of private contractors working in Iraq, while his foray into documentary, titled "Spirit of '45," will be an even broader affair — focusing on the changes to the social and political landscape of Britain immediately following the end of World War II.

Review: HBO's Fantasy Epic 'Game Of Thrones' Returns For A Satisfying Sophomore Season

Ever since HBO changed the landscape of television dramas back in the late 90s, a dozen other networks have stepped up to try to follow in their footsteps with their own challenging, original programming. So how does the pay cable network stay ahead of the pack? By taking risks that no other network can afford to take (literally). Many of the recent dramas in their stable have come from showrunners who have shepherded previous hits -- “Luck” from “Deadwood” creator David Milch; “True Blood” from “Six Feet Under” creator Alan Ball; “Boardwalk Empire” from “The Sopranos” vet Terrence Winter; “Treme” from “The Wire” creator David Simon -- but their medieval epic “Game of Thrones” is a beast all its own. Adapted from George R. R. Martin’s popular fantasy series “A Song of Ice And Fire” by novelist D.B. Weiss and writer/screenwriter David Benioff (“25th Hour,” “Troy”), the series aims to break up each massive 800+ page book into a 10 episode season. Though sci-fi, action and even horror have made their way to the small screen, fantasy has rarely been attempted and putting the series in the hands of two writers who had no television experience was, putting it lightly, a risky move.

Well, even though it won't hit theaters stateside until the fall, "The Cold Light Of Day" actually rolls into theaters in the U.K. next weekend, and as such, a bunch of new stuff has hit the web to get the word out across the pond.

'Zodiac' & 'Amazing Spider-Man' Scribe James Vanderbilt To Rewrite 'Robocop'; Sells Action Spec 'White House Down' To Sony

The first films of screenwriter James Vanderbilt's career were not exactly indicators of great work to come. Killer tooth fairy horror "Darkness Calls?" Botched "Rashomon" riff "Basic"? Dwayne Johnson actioner "The Rundown"? (Which is actually good fun, but not exactly high art). Certainly none suggested that one of the great screenplays of the century so far would come from Vanderbilt, but that's exactly what his script for David Fincher's "Zodiac" is, and it's helped to make him one of the most in-demand writers around.
