Its a pleasant surprise! Just two days ago the first poster has been released, and before I can even post it in a thread – today I found that the trailer is also out!!! Frankly, I did not expect that after seeing the movie only in December last year the second part of the Middle Earth trilogy would come upon us so soon!
Here is the first look poster:
Action superstars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger team up in the action-thriller “Escape Plan”, directed by Mikael Håfström (1408), slated for release on October 18, 2013. The film also stars Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones, 50 Cent, Amy Ryan, Faran Tahir, and Matt Gerald.
Ray Breslin (Stallone), the world’s foremost authority on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called “The Tomb.” But when he is wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.
Just when we thought that the makers have unleashed everything and enough to woo us towards the new superman movie “Man of Steel”, they came forward with a new Nokia-sponsored trailer that will surely left you having goosebumps.
Any comic-book fan here? Or anyone excited abt upcoming movie “Man of Steel”?
Well, DC Comics has released an official ‘Man of Steel’ prequel comic-book that ties in to the upcoming Superman reboot. The comic-book story is by ‘Man of Steel’ writer David Goyer and director Zack Snyder.
And instead of Kal-El (Superman), the 42-page comic focuses on Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl. The story takes place around 1,000 years before the events in ‘Man of Steel’. The idea might be for setting up a larger Superman universe that could eventually include Supergirl in future movie adaptations.
Here is the cover page of the book:

Last week i watched Kannan Iyer’s Ek Thi Daayan. It’s co-produced and co-written by Vishal Bhardwaj. And last night i watched Aparna Sen’s Goynar Baksho. And i could not stop myself from comparing the two. Apart from Konkona Sensharma’s spectacular acting, there are few more common factors between the two. Both the films are based on literary work. Ek Thi Daayan is based on a short story written by Konkona’s father Mukul Sharma. (You can read the story here) Goynar Baksho is based on Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay’s story titled “Rashmonir Sonadana”. So in a way one is Mommy’s film and the other one is Daddy’s. Though both are in supernatural space, in terms of what they deliver, the difference is huge.
Ek Thi Daayan is a strange film. Because it’s two films in one. Though it plays around with all the common elements of horror films in first half, it sets up a great mood, is deliciously ambiguous, and keeps you totally hooked. Konkona and the kids keep you engaged in their mouse and cat game. The 2nd half is drastically different – almost a Vikram Bhatt film. Everything is on the face, new rules are set, it’s silly, becomes unintentionally hilarious and has a strange closure. What is Kalki’s character doing in the film? She is just to misguide us? Is it all about who is the witch out of the two? It all boils down to one spoiler? There have been many rumours floating around about the film’s climax being changed by its producer, and once you watch the film you realise that all those rumours must have been true. There can’t be no other reason for the second half to be so disappointing.
Now, about the end. A wise man once said that you must ask yourself 3 Questions – 1. what’s the film about? 2. What’s the film *really* about? 3. What’s the film *really, really* about? If you know the answers, you are on right track. And the answers to these three questions tells you the difference between these two films – Ek Thi Daayan and Goynar Baksho – why one works and why the other doesn’t. Let’s see.
Mumbai: Satish Kaushik, who is directing ‘Gang Of Ghosts’, the Hindi remake of Bengali film ‘Bhooter Bhabishyat’, says it was a conscious decision to keep out the original cast, and retain only Parambrata Chatterjee from it.
‘Bhooter Bhabishyat’, released in 2012, is one of Bengali cinema`s biggest hits of all times. It is about ghosts in an old bungalow who refuse to evict their abode to make way for a shopping mall.
From the original cast of the blockbuster directed by Anik Dutta, only Parambrata, who made a strong impact as Vidya Balan`s cop-companion in the cruel climate of Kolkata in ‘Kahaani’, will be seen in the remake.
It is understood that the producers of the remake – Venus and Ratan Jain, made a conscious decision to keep out the original Bengali cast.
Indian Ocean has been roped in to sing a youth anthem in Prakash Jha’s upcoming film ‘Satyagraha’.
The Amitabh Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor starrer, which Jha is co-producing with UTV Motion Pictures, will also feature the band members Susmit Sen, Rahul Ram and Amit Kilam in the song.
The band will be shown belting out a youth anthem that motivates characters in the film to stand up for their rights at a crucial juncture in the story. The band was very excited to have composed the track for Jha’s film.
Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan, Sonali Bendre and Sonakshi Sinha

His unsparing assessment of the star’s career on a TV show reportedly led to his ouster from the Housefull franchise
Creative differences with Sajid Nadiadwala may be part of the problem but the real reason why Sajid Khan will not wield the megaphone for the producer’s next, Housefull 3, is the spat he has had with the star of the franchise – Akshay Kumar.
During a recent show on TV, when host Rajeev Masand asked Sajid why he doesn’t work with newcomers, he replied: “Housefull 1 and Housefull 2, sort of, got Akshay out of a bad patch of six to seven flop films. He had a run of six to seven flop films, after which Housefull became the first big grosser in 2010. Then again, he had a patch of six to seven films. Then again, it was Housefull 2.”

Prakash Raj‘s bilingual film Gouravam has landed in trouble with a community based in Chennai approaching the state government to ban the film. The film is going through similar kind of issues of Vishwaroopam, which was banned by the state government a few months ago fearing that the film would create law and order issues.
