There are two schools of though on movie marketing when it comes to blockbusters: carpet bomb the fuck out of the advertising or play it close to the chest. 20th Century Fox tends to do the former, as campaigns for "X-Men: First Class" and "Prometheus" bear witness. But Christopher Nolan and co. take the latter approach, with each move carefully coordinated with the precision of a hit squad. So yes, this is not much more than a magazine cover, but it's a new look at Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel," so we'll take what we can get.

It seems everyone wants a piece of Joseph Gordon-Levitt these days. The actor was rumored to play Batman in "Justice League," is on the ever growing list of contenders for "Guardians Of The Galaxy," is hosting the Sundance awards later this month, and now has another franchise being tossed across his very messy desk. Needless to say, dude has options.

After kicking around handful of options at Warner Bros. including the drama "Your Voice In My Head," the thriller "The Imitation Game" and potential gangster epic "Cicero," 'Harry Potter' helmer David Yates has finally settled on "Tarzan" as his next project. The decision has slowly been coming over the past few months, but now it's time to find out who's going to shirtless and swinging from vines, and some interesting names are cropping up.

Sneaking into theaters with little to no fanfare at the tail end of summer, "The Cold Light of Day," a dramatically inert and visually muddy thriller from Mabrouk El Mechri ("JCVD"), is so bad that its mere presence in theaters feels like the behind-the-scenes machinations of some kind of contractual obligation instead of actual enthusiasm on anyone's part. It's telling that the movie was released in the United Kingdom back in April (it was rightly savaged) and is only finally coming out here.

Some of you have already seen it playing in front of "The Dark Knight Rises" this weekend, but one of two different teaser trailers for Warner Bros' next great superhero hope, "Man Of Steel," has just made its way online, via Yahoo. And those who've come to expect a certain kind of stylized, action-heavy kind of film from director Zack Snyder, the man behind "300" and "Sucker Punch," or even those who saw, legally or illegally, the Comic-Con teaser debuted last weekend, will find that the clip isn't quite what you were expecting.

While Comic-Con has had many treats for the genre geek, perhaps the one that made fans most nervous was "Man of Steel." The centerpiece of Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' panel, the film sees a character who's already had one unsuccessful modern era-reboot, and while fans were comforted by the presence of Christopher Nolan as executive producer, the choice of "300" and "Sucker Punch" helmer Zack Snyder to direct has been more controversial. And bar one image (nearly a year old at this point) and a logo, the film's been kept firmly under wraps, which is understandable, as it's nearly a year from release.

As a youth, Ed Zwick must have really enjoyed history class as films with a period setting and/or stories set to the backdrop of war or conflict are a recurring theme in his work. Despite a gear change with "Love And Other Drugs" in 2010, Zwick looks to be returning to his bread and butter with "The Great Wall," a China-set historical epic.

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.

McG Says Robert Downey Jr. Would've Been Lex Luthor In His 'Superman'; Describes His Original, Darker Ending For 'Terminator: Salvation'

It may have been a no-win situation when McG signed on for "Terminator: Salvation." Fans were generally displeased with "Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines," but at least that film featured Arnold Schwarzenegger and an R-rating. McG, perhaps best known for the "Charlie's Angels" films, was working with a PG-13 rating, vowing to tell the untold story of the fabled war against Skynet. It was a no-brainer for the director who told us in a recent interview, "I’m a huge fan of the franchise, and I’m fascinated with Jim Cameron. I leapt at the chance to work with Christian Bale." And who wouldn't? But during press rounds for his latest, "This Means War," he commented that he "pussed out" on the film. We talked to McG and hoped he would clarify, and he revealed to us that his hopes were for the heavily-rumored original ending.

You see that face up there? Get used to it. With "Man Of Steel" hitting in just over a year, the marketing ramp-up/onslaught is just around the corner and Henry Cavill's face and name will soon become recognizable even to your Mom. And Legendary Entertainment, who are co-producers on the superhero pic, are eager to keep Cavill under their roof.
