Entertainment News: henry cavill
"Man of Steel" hit theaters on Friday, June 14, and while the film hopes to successfully reboot the franchise, actor Russell Crowe praised the film's star, Henry Cavill, and his rendition of Superman.
In the film, Cavill plays a modern version of Clark Kent / Superman. The movie follows the superhero's origin story and his struggle with his extraterrestrial heritage. When Earth is invaded by General Zod, a fellow Kryptonian played by Michael Shannon, Superman must race to save Earth and its humans.
Red Hot Right Now
Superman soars back onto the silver screen this summer, with a new star, a new suit, and a new story, re-imagined for a more modern Metropolis, and realistic world. Directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, who reinvented Batman in "The Dark Knight" trilogy, is "Man of Steel" a flyaway hit? Or is it an up, up, and away miss?
Check out the review below (possible spoilers ahead).
For Henry Cavill, there was something particularly special -- and appetizing -- about his Superman costume for "Man of Steel." Because it was made with love.
The 30-year-old British actor, who rose to fame in the United States as a star of the show "The Tudors," talked to OTRC.com about playing Clark Kent, aka Kal-El, aka Superman in the newest installment of the DC comics superhero. "Man of Steel" is set for release on June 14. Check out 3 highlights from his interview.
Henry Cavill, star of the upcoming Superman film reboot "Man of Steel," has reportedly ended his engagement to Ellen Whitaker.
The 29-year-old actor and Whitaker, a 26-year-old show jumping rider and fellow British native, mutually decided to end their engagement, a source told Us Weekly magazine.
The first glimpses of "Man of Steel," the latest film to feature the story of Superman, hit the web on Saturday, July 21, in the form of two teaser trailers.
While the footage in the two teasers are identical, with scenes of Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) hitch hiking and working on a fishing boat, the voiceovers are different. One features the voice of Kevin Costner, who plays Kent's adoptive father Jonathan Kent, while the other features the voice of Russell Crowe, who plays Kent's biological father Jor-El. Both trailers can be seen below.
Henry Cavill in no stranger to strength training, having to prepare for "The Tudors" and "Man of Steel," but the actor said the preparation for "Immortals" was beyond anything he'd experienced before.
"We were given certain briefs which changed while we were training and they wanted photographic evidence of how I was doing, so it was very difficult initially," Cavill said in an interview provided by Relativity Media. "When we finally got our groove and we got our final brief of what we were going to look like, we just trained and trained and trained and trained and trained and trained. It was eight hours a day, five days a week in the gym. It was a crazy amount of training that we did... When it came to learning all the choreography, all the stunts, it wasn't as taxing as it could have been."
Dean Cain has nothing but nice things to say Henry Cavill, who will fill his old shoes, or boots, as the new Superman in an upcoming reboot.
Cain, a 45-year-old actor who played Superman on the 1990s action series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," made his comments at the recent Los Angeles premiere of Cavill's new film, "Immortals," which was released on Friday November 11.
