It’s also got some new footage and commentary from stars Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, and Kevin Costner, producers Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, co-producer Wesley Coller, writer David S. Goyer, director Zack Snyder, and production designer Alex McDowell.
Music Box Films has released the first trailer for The Wall, based on the 1962 German feminist dystopian novel by Marlen Haushofer. It’s about a woman left on her own to survive at a remote hunting lodge when a mysterious invisible wall cuts her off from the rest of the world. (I haven’t read it, and I’m not saying they’re similar in general, but that part of the premise sounds a lot like Under the Dome. Interesting.)
Here’s a clip. This movie looks really fascinating, though potentially difficult to watch.

NBC has finally announced Hannibal‘s fate: according to Give Me My Remote, the show has been renewed for a second season of 13 episodes. I’m so relieved – I’ve come to really enjoy this show, and was not necessarily expecting this good news. From the statement quoted at GMMR:
“We’re so proud of [HANNIBAL creator] Bryan [Fuller]’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “There are many great stories still to be told.”

Jackson as its central trio, and the cast also includes everyone from Sean Bean to Nathan Fillion to Stanley Tucci to Yvette Nicole Brown to Anthony Stewart Head. Impressive.
