As most folks take the day off to celebrate our nation’s Presidents (because I’m sure that’s how people are spending their free time: celebrating US Presidents), it’s a bit of a slow news day. With that in mind, we bring you the UK poster for Limitless. Even on a slow news day, I would usually skip over this, but the poster makes Bradley Cooper look so creepy that I had to share it with you. It’s like the folks who designed this poster said, “We can’t find an image of Bradley Cooper and photoshop is broken. I know! There’s a new Bradley Cooper wax statue at the local wax figure museum! Let’s go borrow it! Chip-chip! Cheeri-o!” (It’s a British poster and I’m 99% certain that’s how all British people end their conversations and this poster could have only been made by Brits because — 0h, no — I’ve run out of crappy-logic juice).
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Limitless also stars Abbie Cornish, Anna Friel, and Robert De Niro. It opens in the US on March 18th and the in UK on March 23rd.
Click over to Empire to see the UK quad poster, which is just as creepy.

But now it looks like he may be signing on to Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot. Deadline reports that Costner is up for a “key role” in the picture. If I had to guess at what the role could be, I’d say it’s either Superman’s birth father Jor-El, surrogate parent Pa Kent, or Daily Planet editor Perry White. Currently, the only actor cast in the film is Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent. The film is currently set for release next holiday season.
Costner most recently co-starred in The Company Men. Last year, we reported that he was planning to get back in the director’s chair for the World War II action-adventure, A Little War of Our Own.

In case anyone, for any reason whatsoever, had concerns that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises would have a lot in common with Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin (you know, outside of featuring characters named Batman and Bane), Tom Hardy is here to put those fears to rest. In a recent interview with the UK’s Channel 4 talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, the actor slated to play the Batman foe confirmed:
“Chris Nolan, again, will revisit that territory entirely so I wouldn’t go by that [Schumacher's Batman and Robin]. Plus, that’s a lot of weight to put on and I’ve got to start shooting in May. So I’ve got to get back up to that size again [presumably "again" referring to his bulked turn in Bronson] and I’ve got to get up to about 13-and-a-half or 14 stone [approx. 200 lbs.]. I’m 12-and-a-bit now [approx. 170 lbs.], so I’ve got three months to do that.”
To check out a video of the interview, hit the jump. Hardy will join Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises on July 20th, 2012.
