The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart took a brief break from writing and hosting Comedy Central’s news satire show to direct Rosewater. Which didn’t hurt either Stewart or John Oliver, who then got a job hosting his own news satire show on HBO. Now we are starting to see Stewart’s talents as a director as the first trailer for Rosewater hit the web.

The film centers on Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari, who covered Iranian elections in 2009, and was subsequently arrested and charged with espionge for writing about the political protests. Held for 118 days, Bahari persistently interrogated by a man, who smelled like Rosewater, who had “proof” of Bahari being a spy for a foregin nation, and used information journalist’s Facebook page and, oddly, an appearance on The Daily Show, to break him.

Videos of celebrities doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge are a dime a dozen, some of them are doing it while on the set of films currently in production. But few actually do it in character, or at least wearing their costumes. Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie almost did it until they made a surprise reveal. With the Ice Bucket Challenge showing no signs of slowing down, it was only a matter of time until we got to see someone do it in costume.

Zack Snyder is currently filming Superman V Batman: Dawn Of Justice, and film stars Henry Cavill and Amy Adams took some time off during the production to take the Ice Bucket Challenge in full costume. And I don’t mean Cavill sporting a Clark Kent journalistic coats, I mean Cavill as Superman in full Superman gear. Hit the jump to check it out. [Read more...]
