PRIEST

Celebrity photo site Just Jared snapped some photos of star Paul Bettany in full costume in the midst of filming. Meanwhile, IGN talks with actor Paul Gigandet. He breifly mentions the film.

CAGEY SUPERMAN

I've seen the picture of Cage in a really odd Superman suit. I decided not to post it because it looked particularly fake. However, I still reviewed it because you never know at first glance when scuttle is newsworthy. If you discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of Werner Herzog's film school.
