Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Nearly 24 hours after the trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was leaked via a shaky cellphone camera recording, Warner Bros. decided to released the trailer officially. The trailer was originally planned to be unveiled during an 15-minute long event in Imax theaters on Monday.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to be released in March 2016.
Variety is reporting that Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in discussions to star in fashion designer Tom Ford’s thriller “Nocturnal Animals,” his second film as a director after 2009’s “A Single Man.”
This is in the early days as no financial offers have been made yet but insiders say it is headed in that direction, with Ford writing and directing, also producing along George Clooney through his Smokehouse Pictures banner.
Nocturnal Animals is based on the novel by Austin Wright titled Tony and Susan. The plot is described as a story inside a story, with the first part following a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second element follows the actual manuscript, called Nocturnal Animals, which revolves around a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly. It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.
Sources say actors were immediately drawn to the project when the script hit the market, and Adams aggressively pursued the part, as she was interested in the part of Susan, with Gyllenhaal pushing hard for the male lead.

The project, based on Ted Chiang’s story, centers on aliens landing on Earth. The military then recruits Adams’ linguist expert to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. Renner will portray a physics professor brought on to help communicate with the aliens.
