Many people take special tests on the Internet to find out which hemisphere of the brain dominates, left or right, a tendency to logic or creativity prevails. You can be sure for a long time that you love one thing and cannot tolerate another, that you are talented in one sphere, but you will not achieve anything in another. You yourself have once decided and since then you consider this an unshakable truth.
Henry Cavill has admitted that his favorite film is the 2000 epic historical drama Gladiator. Now maybe that has something to do with the movie’s fantastic plot loaded with combat scenes and brewing political conflicts, or perhaps it’s down to its leading actor supporting Cavill’s dream of pursuing acting as a fully-fledged career.
Superhero movies take us to a place where things are a little different, where the ordinary can become extraordinary, and where heroes are there to save the day.
Henry Cavill has worked twice now with Omaze to not only support his favourite charities, but to give a few lucky prize winners the experience of a lifetime. He previously supported Durrell Wildlife with a Batman V Superman experience (see our interview here with that winner) and this time around he’s supporting the Royal Marines Charity with an experience in the famous London Eye. We caught up with Christina, the winner of this wonderful Omaze experience and asked her about her day spent with Superman himself, Henry Cavill.
Some critics say the Batman V Superman's lack of cohesion was horrible, while others say it was a fan service for the die-hard comic book fans who hold Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent dear to their hearts. But whatever the critics’ stance on the film, one thing's for sure: Snyder's cinematography was unbelievable and has set the benchmark for future DC films.
Do you remember Henry Cavill's first movie, The Count of Monte Cristo? Аctress Dagmara Dominczyk, who played Mercedes, mother of young Henry's Albert, shared in her blog a memory which took place back in 2001 in Dublin, where the movie had been filmed. She included a never-before-seen photo of her and Henry.
Set in Iraq circa 2003, Sand Castle is based on screenwriter Chris Roessner’s experience as a machine gunner in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle. The plot centers on Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who is part of a mission to repair a broken water system in the dangerous and unstable Iraqi village of Baqubah. While the people of Baghdad welcome the Americans as saviors, the villagers resist their presence and Matt and his unit must try to convince the community that they are part of the solution, not the problem, in order to save the town and get out alive. Henry Cavill plays the special forces captain running the operation in Baqubah. We caught up with Mr. Roessner to ask him about his movie and…
Last week, Instagram excitement exploded for Henry Cavill fans. The talented artist, Felix, shared a few of his images taken while Henry Cavill was doing the photoshoot for Men’s Fitness. They were candid and truly beautiful. As we looked through his many stunning images on his Instagram page, we thought it might be fun to talk to him more about his craft and his time spent photographing Henry. We are so thankful he agreed to do the interview with us.
When Warner Bros announced that the follow up movie to Man of Steel would feature a clash of two of the greatest comic book titans ever, we were beyond excited. Batman V Superman would finally bring these two iconic superheroes to the big screen (and in IMAX nonetheless!) in the same movie. Much of the marketing focused on the epic battle between Batman and Superman, asking people to choose sides. We were biased of course, running a Henry Cavill site, so we were Team Superman all the way. After all, how could a mere man with no super powers defeat a God-like being? By the time the movie actually came out, our anticipation was at an all-time high. How would…
During the promotional tour for Batman v Superman, OMAZE ran a contest to win a helicopter ride with Henry Cavill before the premiere in NYC. The contest was in support of Durrell Wildlife — a charity that Henry is an ambassador for. We supported these efforts by sharing our own link to the contest and shared on our social media to attract donors and contest entrants. One of the contestants who entered through our link won the prize! Jennifer McCrae was kind enough to take the time to answer some questions for us regarding her adventures with Henry, Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg at the world premiere of Batman v Superman in NYC.
