Warner Bros. has released the first domestic trailer and poster for The Water Diviner, following the international trailer that debuted back in October. Russell Crowe stars in and makes his directorial debut with this ambitious drama, with the filmmaker set to host a Twitter Q&A session at 11 AM PT through the @iTunesTrailers Twitter account. Fans can use the hashtags #AskRussellCrowe and #TheWaterDiviner to submit their questions to the actor and first-time director.
Russell Crowe's directorial debut, The Water Diviner, is an epic and inspiring tale of one man's life- changing journey of discovery. Crowe plays Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who have suffered their own losses in the conflict: Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan (Dylan Georgiades), who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdogan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor's boys and who may be this father's only hope. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor must travel across the battle-scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth...and his own peace.Read More

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are being eyed to star in Shane Black's crime noir The Nice Guys. Reps for both actors indicate that it's too early for either star to be attached to the project yet, especially since Russell Crowe may have scheduling conflicts due to his publicity obligations for his directorial debut, The Water Diviner.
Shane Black wrote the script for The Nice Guys several years ago with Anthony Bagarozzi, with the project languishing in development until just recently. Both writers staged a live reading of the script during the 2011 Austin Film Festival.Read More

The actor played Jor-El in 2013's Man of Steel, and turned in a performance that surprised and delighted fans of the DC Comics superhero father figure. Some might argue that his Jor-El is the best live-action representation of Superman's real dad yet.
The decision not to bring Jor-El into the storyline for Batman Vs. Superman makes sense, as it might take too much time explaining how Clark Kent was able to bring his father's A.I. consciousness back after General Zod destroyed it in the first movie. It is possible that the actor could return in flashbacks, but the hope from fans is that more time will be spent on the tension between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent as their worlds collide.Read More
