Wednewsday 5th December

Image of the Week: it's a new Superman poster and the Man of Steel is in handcuffs! We are finally offered some clues about Snyder's so-called modern take on the Superman legend might actually involve.

Good News: Skyfall is now officially the UK's biggest ever film, grossing more than Avatar with a cool £94 million. This means Bond is still looking nifty at fifty and has given further momentum to the proposed interconnected Bond 24 and 25 follow-ups. Shame they killed off Silva.

Bad News: Empire Magazine, regarded by many as the holy gospel of film journalism, have only awarded The Hobbit four stars. Does this mean the long-awaited prequel is lacking? Or are they just trying to be unpredictable?

Mad News: the preparations for Legend of Conan are gathering speed, which will see Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role from the 1982 Conan the Barbarian. Universal are hoping to fast-track the film for a summer 2014 release. Schwarzenegger will turn 67 by that time. Can we really see him rocking Conan's banana-hammock at that age?
